Joscha Bach on Brain and Self-Nature

A really, really and truly and frankly insightful mind, who I only discovered recently. Maybe one of the main reasons to check in with Twitter now and then – – he constantly drops these powerful nuggets of truth. By the way, they seem to align so fantastically with insights that the Buddha himself also had and spoke about. In any event, I find that his insights – – at least those released on Twitter – – certainly align very strongly with what is experienced through Meditation – – at least, through my own, which I would be foolish not to take as a universal standard.

“I am not a brain, I am not an organism. I am a story created by a brain.” Beautiful insight.

Dae Soen Sa Nim’s oft-quoted dictum comes to mind here: “The mind makes the body, and the body makes the mind.”
