Pure awareness…


Right or wrong,
Joy and sorrow,
These are of the mind only.
They are not yours.
It is not really you

Who acts or enjoys.

You are everywhere,
Forever free.

Forever and truly free,
The single witness of all things.

But if you see yourself as separate,
Then you are bound.

“I do this. I do that.”
The big black snake of selfishness
Has bitten you!

“I do nothing.”
This is the nectar of faith,
So drink and be happy!

Know you are one,
Pure awareness.

With the fire of this conviction, burn down the forest of ignorance.

~ Ashtavakra Gita – translation by Thomas Byrom
