Right and wrong, pleasure and pain, exist in mind only – Ashtavakra Gita

Right and wrong, pleasure and pain, exist in mind only. They are not your concern. You neither do nor enjoy. You are free.
You are the solitary Witness of All that is, forever free. Your only bondage is not seeing This.
The thought, “I am the doer,” is the bite of a poisonous snake. To know, “I do nothing,” is the wisdom of faith. Be happy.
A single understanding, "I am the One Awareness," consumes all suffering in the fire of an instant. Be happy.

You are unbounded awareness — bliss, supreme bliss — in which the universe appears like the mirage of a snake in a rope. Be happy Ashtavakra Gita
