Isn't ego something wonderful Individualogist Review and terrible all at the same time? It has the ability to create a sense of all knowing inside someone even when that someone has no idea what their talking about. It's the Cliff Clavin of our consciousness and it's very easy to let it do the talking for us and to make our decisions for us. The only problem with our ego is that many times its dead wrong but that's OK because it's very good at one more thing as well, deflecting blame. Unfortunately almost all of us have grown up our entire lives being led by our ego and this is especially disheartening because with the shift in consciousness taking place all over our planet, many of us won't wake up to the truths being presented. Because our perception has been artificially dumbed down and limited for so long, the idea of aliens controlling mankind by way of creating a virtual reality matrix prison whereby information given to us for us to decode interprets our perception of reality of what we believe to be real is so absolutely fantastical for us to fathom that our ego will destroy us for even entertaining that idea along with others and will completely ridicule anyone else for mentioning them. However the beautiful thing about reality is that just because the reality one hears is unbelievable doesn't mean it isn't true, it simply just means one's ego won't accept it. In Peru, one of the oldest of traditions is the making of despachos, sacred offerings that are made to the mountain spirits (Sacred Apus) and to Pachamama (Mother Earth). This practice is meant to bring ayni, or reciprocity, into balance and is an act of profound love. In Peru, this concept of love is called Munay, and it is a reminder that we are all one with absolutely no separateness, and that to love others is to love ourselves. To love a stone is to love others. To love a tree is to love ourselves. All of this interconnection of beings, elements, spirits and sacred places is represented in a despacho. So just what is a despacho? Well, the easiest way to describe it is by translating the word "despacho" from Spanish, which means "office" or study. In ancient times, people did not have "offices". For the shaman, his or her office was the medicine bundle, which when opened, would contain all the energy and frequencies of the environment, and would contain all the tools the shaman needed to bring things into balance. Hence, one did not "cure" someone, one brought them into balance.
