JS and BR, a mythological encounter by two enlightened beings
JS is right, just the action of creation such a powerful and valious content is a magic ritual to get into the minds of others to live a message. You are the medium and the message and a great one.

the brain doesn’t do a thing…it’s an illusion . it’s consicuosness ..!! there is only what sees within which everything appears , brain included ..
you are pure seeing , timeless awareness in which the illusion of time appears..tell me where is an image or sound..in the brain !?? check it , see it for yourself and when is recognized you will be bursting into laughter ..you will realize that you have been searching throughout the images into the mirror all the time overlooking the fact that you are the mirror !!
