As the “Rock” came into sight, I began feeling the energy from this ancient monolith. Uluru was formed from a featureless landscape during the Tjukurpa, or creation. As the bus approached Uluru, I began to wonder what adventure awaited me. The “Rock” was a very impressive sight, rising from the floor of the outback, it was the only object to be seen for miles.
To aborigines, Uluru is a Cathedral and though the outside form is visible, the underlying spiritual concepts are not a matter of public record. It is a living reminder of the Dream time struggle. The stories which relate to every aspect of its extraordinary form carry clear moral codes, good prevailing over evil. The spiritual over the physical, the importance of hospitality and the maintenance of the law.
