“I do not teach the dreaming. The mountain teaches the dreaming. Uluru. … One thing you must know. You come as a child and learn how to crawl before you walk. I know today you have your education but I don’t want you like that. I want you to come the way I want you to come. As a little child.
So, if you’ve got an education, you’ve missed two or three steps. Listen what I say. How do you touch a tree and feel the love of that tree ? Sometimes, you have to blindfold people and let them find their way around the rocks to learn. The rocks there are like natural churches, altars, so we don’t need no artificial churches, you see. Just stand by the rock circles on the mountain and speak to the Great Spirit. You will feel a vibration; you will hear Darama, the Creator. Your words must come from the heart or it’s just blah blah blah. This you must learn before Dreaming.” – Aboriginal elder, Guboo Ted Thomas via Antero Alli
