"By and large, Kaccayana, this world is in bondage to attachments, clingings (sustenances), and biases. But one such as this [who sees the origination of the world as it actually is with right discernment, and who sees the cessation of the world as it actually is with right discernment] does not get involved with or cling to these attachments, clingings, fixations of awareness, biases, or obsessions; nor is he resolved on 'my self'."

excerpt from the Kaccayanagotta Sutta (SN 12.15)

"Does Master Gotama have any position at all?"
"A 'position,' Vaccha, is something that a Tathāgata has done away with. What a Tathāgata sees is this: 'Such is form, such its origin, such its disappearance; such is feeling, such its origin, such its disappearance; such is perception… such are mental fabrications… such is consciousness, such its origin, such its disappearance.' Because of this, I say, a Tathāgata — with the ending, fading out, cessation, renunciation, & relinquishment of all construings, all excogitations, all I-making & mine-making & obsession with conceit — is, through lack of clinging/sustenance, released."
