I'm afraid that peace is an impossibility. I see these shamans that are neurotic as hell. Monks that play World of Warcraft. Teachers are prey to narcissistic tendencies. Ayahuasca plays with my mind, tells me I'm eternal and makes me feel like I can be a Shaman. For what? A greater story formed on the basis of a lesser and wholly false one. These games are never-ending.
When Ayahuasca first threatened to take me into the void, I gave up completely. What it meant was that I trust and give in to everything. The only way to trust a cracker-thin world is to walk with an indefatigable trust. I give up.
There's more important things. I'm taking a chance on living a relatively normal life, actually. I want to love and care for someone. Get a job, take care of my father in the last years of his life, move on. We should give reality to others suffering and work to help them in it.
I often feel that I can't do anything for my dad. His life has beaten him up. And he's beaten others up. I feel him dying. I can't express to him all of the letting go of life I've felt. I couldn't ever get it across. So he faces death in a more terrible way, and since he has never lived in a place of expressing his feelings and fears he has no one to talk to. The days move on in greater pain. What can I do?

What can I do?
Nothing. The doer can get out of the way, and life will take care of life. It's what happens anyway, but it's hard not to be pretending to be what we think.

Things are all right, despite being a hell's burden.

You wake up one morning to find you are alive,
"You won the ultimate lottery!", they tell you with a smile,
They give you your winning ticket, and say "Now off you go!"
You ask, "What did I win?"
They say "Hell if we know!"
