“You run into this amazingly beautiful paradox
that there is no ‘I’ at all and ‘I’ is everywhere,
and both of those are true simultaneously.
It’s about as much fun as you could possibly have.
There isn’t an ‘I’, and
the only thing that exists is one big ‘I’
shining out of everything.”

A great photograph, a great reminder of our true nature, the egolessness which is never absent- only overlooked. My interests are also in the field of photography and nonduality. Jerry wrote a foreword for one of my books. His photographs are getting better and better.
Thank you Jan for your comment ! Jerry’s photographs are a treat for the eye and soul orientated. I’m glad I could give them a little light, though they stand alone with perfect light of their own already. I’m looking forward to reading some of your writings…
Hello Alain, I have one book on photography (bodyscapes) and several on nonduality (Nobody Home, This Is It, Beyond,..). You can find some pictures and texts on my website http://www.kersschot.com
It’s always nice to get in touch with people with the same passions. Jan
