From Kjells current understanding

  • It is just one thing  going on

  • Conflicts are due to misunderstanding

  • Suffering comes from not knowing who you are

  • The thinking mind are limited by thoughts 

This short film may say more about Kjell than all the words on this site. Warning it may be contagious!
