Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
I am always the same, beyond lineage and social status. I am always the same, beyond cause and effect. I am always the same, beyond division and unity. Dear mind, you are none other than me. There is no reason to grieve.
Avadhuta Gita 5:20
Lineage and social status belong to the body. But as consciousness, the witness of the body, I am beyond (unaffected by) lineage and social status because they are objects known to me.
I am not a cause because the so-called “effect” of the body-mind and world are unreal appearances that upon investigation are none other than myself. Since I alone exist, I cannot be divided. If I cannot be divided, then I have no parts. If I have no parts, then I cannot be a unity (collection) of parts. I am existence itself, one without a second. OM.
