The stomping and banging put anxiety in his stomach and nervous system. It awakened fears of something he didn't understand. The stomping went right into his heart and digestive tract.
He understood it was a test form Oogah and Oorsis, deities of the mountain and the plains. The challenge was to stay calm. Don't react. Don't respond to the swarm of fearsome thoughts. Ego doesn't like being prodded. Lohbado knew it was beyond his control. Don't make a fuss. Let it go. Take a deep breath. Invoke infinite nature. Gaze towards the horizon. Close your eyes a moment. Imagine you're at the top of a rock hill. Enjoy a view of the vast wilderness. The rude awakening has the power to shake you out of complacency.
