Wow, so many cool people in Vilcabamba, Ecuador now, in the past, and maybe forever. So many people living fantastic lives. Of course, along the way, there is suffering, strife, pain, and hardship, it can’t be entirely avoided, at least not forever. It all depends on one’s perspective.

Is there hope, is the world actually waking up? Just look at the TED talks, so many incredible people living incredible lives. People living the best versions of themselves, or almost the best version as there will always be room to grow, to go even higher. People doing incredible things. It is all available to us through the miracle of the internet and through our face to face exchanges that we can enjoy in our tiny plaza.

And now we have UFO sightings everyday that so many people have seen. We seem to be living next to an ant’s nest of aliens stationed inside of Mandango mountain. Two of our inhabitants, I have heard, recently, both came to the same strange realization independently, that there is someone living inside of the mountain that is 50,000 years old.

Living, as we do, in the valley of conspiracy theories, theories that seem to be true. Of course, most of us are still lost in the illusion of “I”. That is a hard one to shake, so deeply ingrained is the construct known as the ego, the result of conditioning (programming) and circumstance. How many of us can separate ourselves from the drama we call our life?

However, this may be where humanity is moving towards, breaking through the biggest illusion of all, our separation, our sense of who we are. We have ayahuasca, san pedro, LSD, all the aids we could want at our disposal to guide us through the darkness and towards the light, moving from I to We.

And as a local light told me just yesterday, it’s really so easy, all you have to do is live virtuously.
