Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
I am pure, unchanging consciousness, always at peace. I am unborn, action-less and free of the ego.
-Ashtavakra Samhita 15:13
To say that action and the ego exist is to admit that they are objects known to me. As consciousness itself I am the knower of objects but I myself am never an object. Therefore, when the body and mind act, prompted by the desires of the ego, I remain pure, action-less and unchanged, like the sun remaining pure, action-less and unchanged despite illuminating the various activities of the world.
