Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
Arjuna said, “What is the description of the person with steady wisdom, whose mind abides in the self?”
Krishna said, “When, like a turtle that withdraws its limbs, this person is able to completely withdraw the sense organs from their objects, his knowledge is steady.”
-Bhagavad Gita 2:54 & 58
When a person is able to withdraw their sense organs from objects, they are said to have steady wisdom. There is no objection here. But because I am not a person, nor do I admit the reality of the senses and their objects, how can I, the non-dual self, have steady wisdom? As the one, unchanging reality, steadiness is my nature, not something I gain from a particular state of mind. OM.
