You have to have an open and perceptive mind in order to understand what Don Juan Matus is saying in his various books on a Yaqui way of knowledge. Skeptics will never be able to go beyond their reason which is one of points that Don Juan repeatedly states throughout his books. Formal religious types will try to tie it to the devil or evil in their limited way of thinking. There are many things that the Don Juan books convey in their teachings, being free from the thoughts and stereotypes of others is one of his teachings. Self-importance, erasing personal history, taking responsibilty for our actions are all points well taken that most people won't get.
