The colours black and white are at the opposite ends of the spectrum. They have between them a rainbow of beauty that awaits discovery by those with the courage to explore beyond the barriers of what is dark or light.
Our Aboriginal brothers and sisters lived in this country long before the white man came. They survived because they respected the spirit world, nature and the land around them. In our quest for power and money we often show little respect for these things.
The Aborigines see themselves as a part of nature. We tend to see ourselves as being above nature. They were dependant on each other and on the nature that surrounded them. We generally look for ways to use and control nature.
Our maker didn’t give us control over creation; instead we were given stewardship over it. A steward is entrusted with management and because we are stewards, it implies we have a relationship, rather than an ownership.
Primitive people knew who they were within the creation because they automatically related to the spirit world of stories and dreaming. Sometimes we have difficulty coming to grips with who we really are, because we tend to see ourselves outside the spirit world.
Until we can come down to earth, we’ll always remain in a quandary.
