We are born from the body of our mother,

we grow steadily, get old and then we die.  

This is the natural way for all things in the

material world. This is the nature of all materials

– they appear and they disappear.

Death is a terrifying thought for most of us

because we become so attached to the material

world.  We spend all our energy identifying with

everything that is visible,

holding on to it literally for dear life

We know we are going to age and die

but we desperately struggle against losing

such a precious thing as human life.  

This is the modern materialistic life,

addicted to everything visible,

everything possessable;

obsessed with status, reputation and wealth. 

We have turned our backs on the universe,

plundering and raping the planet without a care.

We have stopped listening because our eyes have

become so big and greedy and we are deluded that

the visual field is where we can find the only truth!

On the other hand, indigenous peoples,

the true people of the Earth, 

listen deeply to the universe and

the Great Mother Nature.

They spend their every moment taking care

of the precious planet and especially of their

totem group which they are born into.

They are the true and only custodians of

the planet; the only ones who really have wisdom

and direct contact with all that is

visible and invisible.

Like us, they also are born and they die,

but they live their lives longing for that death,

longing for the glorious moment when their spirit

is released from the limited suffering physical and

finite body, which is vulnerable to disease

and decay,

sustained only by food and water.

Because of this deep knowing about their

divine origins, they live their lives

without fears or attachments.

They trust entirely in the universe to

provide for all their needs,

just-knowing that they will always

have enough to complete their

particular human mission. 

The moment of release from the body 

is called the Djang, 

portrayed in a native painting above.

It is the glorious culmination of each tribal life

lived as a custodian of the Earth

and it is celebrated by a 12 day lead-up of

burial ceremonies,

feasting and dancing, and esoteric rituals.  

Each custodian of the Earth knows that after

their body has lost its usefulness the spirit

held within it will rise into the sky and there

amongst the stars go on traveling to other

dimensions to learn other lessons.

They unconditionally accept that their

appearance in human form

is just one part of their spiritual evolution.

We ‘developed’ people have so much to learn

from these ancient custodians of

the Great Truth.
