He thinks it may be as simple as the "spirits" of the plants tell the shamans.
Actually I've also done the Salkantay expedition while there (four days of climbing up to over 16,000'), in addition to bungee jumping Action Valley (400' drop) and exploring Cusco nightlife. So I think I did a good job of balancing the inner and outer worlds.
I don't know why you'd come into a thread only to spread negativity, but here's hoping the rest of your day perks up.
VHB: A lonely god, is there any thought that is more dispiriting really?
One that embraces the idea form OF NO GOD EXISTING AT ALL. I believe God was lonely and created a system in order to understand its own being (this was information seeking only regarding its existence *to prove it to itself* IAM).
ParasuvO: It is more clear, that your GOD was indeed lonely, and tried to create something that could be unique and try its own things, but finally it realized, that the OBSERVER was always controlling the show.
ParasuvO: And so it dissolved itself into forever not being able to influence the events by observing, since then, so many levels of being have come and gone, all of which are MORE impressive than the highest avatars experience , but they do not see, that things are so messed up, they have all thought they were questing for bliss, and instead found illusion, and they call US being in delusion.....wakeup call is already trumpeting to them,, they had better step back from their posts, lest they truly become a problem to be dealt with.

I don't think I have sole access to unquestionable truth. I merely had a fascinating experience that others have obviously found interesting.
If this isn't your cup of tea, no big deal. I hope you find something to smile about today--life is amazing.
