On the Way to Machu Picchu, 57

He rushes to frame it, to shoot it. He tries to "get" it, but he has missed the point. The camera may be a more dangerous discovery for people than atomic power. But someday, the healing will reach him.

A friendly man approaches and shakes my hand. "I'd like to apologize for my friend there. Sorry he bothered you. He didn't know what he was doing." I smile, "Thanks." A few minutes later, a couple of other people from the spiritual tour group give me their sympathy. "I was so mad at him I wanted to push him off the stone." "What right did he have to interrupt you?" Her friend adds, "You really understood our group. You were one with us and this was your turn." Another comes, "I almost felt you were part of our group. You really added a lot." Then I sink into a real Greater Bay Area hug. How fine to feel formless spirit together. I whimper with spiritual relief. "Thanks, friends."

I go down to the Pacha Mama stone, the gateway to Huayna Picchu. I chant AUM with a couple from the group there. I AUM silently into the Point and the formless.
