Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
For me, the self, there is no state of freedom or bondage; no state of virtue or vice; no state of fullness or emptiness. Dear mind, you are none other than me. There is no reason to grieve.
-Avadhuta Gita 5:19
Dear mind, you seek freedom because you believe you are bound. But you are not. You seek to get good karma and avoid bad karma because you believe you are the ego and the body. But you are not. You seek to determine if your nature is full or empty because you believe you can be defined by abstract dualistic concepts such as “fullness” and “emptiness.” But you cannot.
Dear mind, relax. You are none other than me, the self. There is no reason to grieve. OM.
