Steady Wisdom: 108 Days Of Changing My Thinking
One who knows is neither happy nor miserable, neither attached nor unattached, neither liberated nor an aspirant for liberation. They are neither this nor that.
-Ashtavakra Samhita 18:96
I am one alone, without a second. I am beyond all pairs of opposites such as happy and miserable etc. because they do not truly exist. If my mind is unshakably established in this knowledge, it is said to have steady wisdom. But ironically, this knowledge shows that I myself am beyond wisdom, steady or otherwise—I am neither this nor that. OM.
