Aboriginal Dream Time

Aboriginal Dream Time

The Australian Aboriginal Dream-Time can be confusing to some. It is actually a compilation of not only all their beliefs and history, but also of what is to come.

The Dream Time has different meanings, sometimes if you are looking into the past, you are using memory, and when looking into the future you are using imagination. They believe that we are spiritual scientists and are only “dreaming” this life.

We are all born with a bank of energy. All energy, including money doesn’t disappear, it just changes form. All travel and activity uses up energy, time and money, when we run out of time and energy, the body dies.

As in Christian belief, as well as many other religions, they believe that in the beginning, the earth was flat and void.The aborigines believe all of being was created by the Rainbow Serpent,thus the Rainbow Serpent, along with other spiritual beings created everything .

Instead of settling the earth, the spiritual beings dreamed it up, thus we aren’t residents of earth, we are dreaming our reality and we create everything in our reality by dreaming it first. When you go on a journey, you first dream it up. Then the dream becomes reality by actually doing the task.

When you travel to Cairns for example, the time, travel and money is just a dream. We are all born with a bank of energy, when all your energy is spent converting it to time, money, etc. your physical body dies, it’s like a car that runs out of gas. The physical body can no longer support a soul.This lifetime, or “Dreaming” thus ends and the soul energy or spirit that is you  changes form.

Aborigines are Caucasians and their existence have been traced to Iraq, Iran ,  Malaysia, etc.  The term Aborigine has nothing to do with color or physical features, it relates to a belief, it’s the same as being Christian,.If you follow their way of life, you are an Aborigine, regardless of skin color. In modern times many aborigines who wear shirts will have a completely white skin under the shirt. When asked why they were black and we were white, one replied,”Mate, if you had stood out in the sun for 40,000 years, you would be black too.” 

To them there only two types of people, aborigines and the rest. Anyone can study their ways and become an aborigine, declare such to the Australian government and all the entitlements afforded to them can be received by anyone.

The Australian Aboriginal Negroid had been in Australia for at least three civilizations, possibly for as long as 200,000 years, however, there is no scientific evidence the present day aborigines have been here longer than 12,000 years. Which could possibly indicate that they came  after the “Great Flood”, or that science is wrong. Science has been wrong before.

Much of their history and beliefs are displayed in rock art. Just like modern day art, only the author knows the true meaning. It tells the story of some happening or event,and everyone assumes that every painting is 20,000 years old, this just isn’t true, some could only be a few days old, and this being the case, it has been compared to modern day graffiti.

Boomerrangs

One of the more unique and interesting tools  found in the outback of Australia, boomerangs served a very useful purpose.
There  are many different sizes, types and shapes, depending on the culture, geographic location and need of the hunter. The type of prey would also determine what kind of weapon would be needed.

Your favorite AUSSIE store

Boomerangs were used to kill everything from birds to large animals such as kangaroos. The more popular design of boomerang, the one most often seen in movies was the most aerodynamic and looks like the wing of an aircraft. It was designed to primarily kill birds while in flight. It was fashioned  so it would return to the person who threw it, thus eliminating the need to chase after it. Also many times the birds would be flying over water, so if the target was missed and the boomerang didn’t return, it eliminated the need for the hunter to swim in crocodile infested waters in order to retrieve his favorite weapon.

True, if the bird was killed or wounded,(and since they didn’t have a bird dog), the hunter would have to brave the elements to retrieve his prey, but at least there was a reward for risking his life.

The larger boomerangs were designed to kill larger land animals, thus they resembled a club , They didn’t come back, as they traveled along the ground, and stopped only when coming in contact with the animal in question, or struck some other object, such as a rock or tree.

The aborigines were quite professional in this respect, not only in designing but using the boomerang. The target in question was more often struck and killed than not. Many boomerangs had markings indicating the tribe or even the person to whom the boomerang belonged, thus making it easier to recover if there was a question of ownership.

Although the boomerang is thought to be a product of the natives of Australia, they have actually been found in such places as Poland, Egypt, and among artifacts of Native American Navajo Indians. Dating back over 10,000 years, the boomerang has been a  needed and useful tool for the Australian Aborigine .

Today, the Aborigines are losing many of the talents they once had, due to modernization these talents aren’t in as much demand. Corroborees or songfests are often held where many of the old ways and dances are practiced, but many of the customs of the aborigines are being lost forever, at the songfests, many times white Europeans win the boomerang throwing and other once native competitions.

Australia: Devil’s Marbles

Written by :Gary Wonning

Devils Marbles Northern Australia

Situated about 250 miles north of Alice Springs one will find the Devils Marbles. The Devils Marbles are a collection of huge, round,red-colored boulders, some as large as 7 meters across. Located in the Tennant Creek area of the Northern Territory of Australia,they are an important part in the Aboriginal Dreamtime.

In the creation story of the Dreaming, the Rainbow Serpent fashioned the earth and then returned to a spot east of the Kimberley’s at a place where the rainbow meets the earth. The Rainbow Serpent’s eggs fossilized and became what non-Aborigines now call the Devils Marbles.The Aborigines know them as Karlukarlu.

 

Because of this, the Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve is a spiritually significant and sacred site to the Aborigines.

Gary is a travel writer and photographer living in Sarasota,Florida. He has a website featuring  more photos and articles and he also has published a book featuring the life of the modern day aborigine.

I saw this many time while touring the outback, at this particular site there were hundreds of hypodermic needles floating in the river.

The aborigines have lost their way, not only is their way of life disappearing, but after living in the bush for thousands of years, that way of life is becoming not only impossible but unpopular as well. The problem is that after living for that long in the bush, it is hard for them to adapt to another way of life.

Once example is that instead of sleeping in the free housing supplied by the government, from force of habit, the aborigines will continue to sleep outside on the ground.

The Australian government has tried to help by providing them everything that is needed, but in consequence  the end result has been  they don’t need to work.

Not only do they not have the skills for modern day living, there is no motive to improve since everything is given them. The end result is a high rate of drug and alcohol use.

It is a problem that will probably only be solved after several generations have passed and they gradually adapt to a new way of life.
