RUSSELL SIMMONS : HE REPRESENTS A SHIFT IN CONSCIOUSNESS FOR US - LOTS OF PEOPLE SEEING US AS EVOLVING AND HE'S A BIG PART OF THAT. I wish that were true, but he seems to present 1st tier consciousness in interior and external manifestations - orange/green level - lots of orange level - a lot of status quo.
/sadly, it's all words with no reality for him - I think he's had a peak experience or even longer tastes of it more than once, but he's faking it now, like a lot of people do.
Ok - I just watched the above video, and I'd say he's getting there with his practice, but he projected more onto Obama than I think is there until Obama shows me. Now more wishful thinking than just plain pretending and re-presenting.
