Who am I is probably the greatest question that humanity has ever faced. Searching for the answer to this question is the cause of wars, famine, in fact the entire corrupt nature of humanity can be traced back to one cancerous point where someone was trying to prove who they were based on an opinion, expectation or intention.
The discovery that who you were before your mother and father conceived you is who you will be when you die and is in fact the sum total of your awareness at this very moment.

Although this is a great way to understand the difference between the witness and that which is being witnessed, it did not help me to understand how they function together to create what I have come to know reality.
The difference between the Brain and the mind is that the brain is reactive, and the mind is proactive, (an emotional scale). Everything is always suspended in the mind until received – manifested through opinion, expectation, or intention.
