Firstly I want to state I consider you a friend and I totally understand you are not a racist. I also understand your frustration with watching people
waste their lives away. I commend you on your care factor its refreshing to see and shows what a good person you truly are.
For relevance facts I am not Indigenous.
There are some deeper factors involved here that have not been covered in the thread yet.
When you understand why someone does something it doesn’t hurt as much.
In other words when you see whats really affecting them you will see they must fix themselves and all you require is faith they will make it, helping
means unconditional love and allowing people to make mistakes and come back to you not judged.
Australian Indigenous people are the oldest nomadic tribe in the world. They were never meant to settle in one spot. White settlement made them
settle. This is where the unhappiness comes from. 40,000 years of nomadic culture in their DNA and that genetic language doesn’t sit well with this
new ‘settled in one spot culture’ here. 200 years VS 40,000. Do the math. They have lost their ‘Way’, anyone who is religious or studied
martial arts will understand the price that comes at.
I grew up in the Great Southern of WA which is the area of the Noongar tribe. I have many close friends from kindy to the present day who are Noongar.
These people have lost their lands as most of the area is farmed and they cannot go bush and practice traditional business as freely as the tribes up
north and I have to say are likely the most troubled tribe in WA. I also have lived closely with the Martu people of the Pilbara and I currently live
in the region of the Wangai people of the WA Goldfields and have in previous employment had much to do with them. I was shown and taught many things
about tribal practices and law and secret womens business, which I was privileged to be let into but due to my honour I cannot share these things with
you here. There is heaps more examples I can give about what they do to the houses but I wont on this post. Maybe if you like I will on the next post.
As a person I respect their culture immensely and it saddens me to see it being lost as the younger generations are torn between traditional life and
the society of settlement and consumerism. The social problems they experience within their communities such as the child abuse and substance abuse is
also beyond heartbreaking to watch or have knowledge of. These things stem from deep conflict within the soul. They are a side affect or symptom of
the deep conflict within the soul. Any one who has betrayed themselves as a person or turned from their 'way' will understand that but imagine it so
strong within your DNA that you’re not conscious of it.
One of my closest friends has been rebuilding community housing in remote areas like Cotton creek, Turkey creek, Jigalong etc for about 13 years and
to answer your question Chad about why they live like that in the houses, its because they haven’t been taught to live in houses.
How you fold your towels in your own home may be the way your mum did and you have carried this to your home as learned behaviour without realising
, many Indigenous do not have ‘that kind’ of domestic traditions in that sense. Aboriginal adults die 25 years younger than white adults.
Their parents parents didn’t have time to adjust really so there is only so much that can be passed on and much of it was confusion from the start
as well as pain from displacement.
Im not saying all Indigenous Australians are the same in fact I have a friend whom is Indigenous and an Anthropologist and I will ask her some
questions and get back you here.
Understanding and Tolerance and Faith that they don’t lose themselves is all we can do. I do not believe I am responsible for saying sorry as I was
not there and I am in no way a racist to anyone, I come from a totally less than glamorous childhood full of all kinds of abuse and am in no way a
victim of it and I believe individually we must be responsible for our own lives. I am also friends with my parents now as I would be a hypocrite if I
carried bitterness considering how deeply I care for all humans and the world and hence I know all humans are capable of taking control of their soul
Being Anti toward them or any culture in the bigger picture is not helping the world. Contributing to the negative energy is not the answer.
The political involvement is not the answer either. ATS members please…. As if we can trust the gov to work it out….pfft. Its out of our hands.
The gov do deals with them to have mining tenements and the Indigenous do agree to those deals to get money in return. The gov don’t care for the
culture they care for the Oz economy or more so their own pockets.
I know it may sound wishy washy airey fairy to some of you, but seriously you can only affect what is in your immediate life. (never EFF with things
you cant control) And therefore what you put out should be moving forward in the most proactive and benevolent way for all involved. Energetically we
can change the world but we need to make sure our intentions are honourable. Fundamentally that’s what its all about, everything.
Chad sharing your view is an awesome idea and thanks for thread, it did need to be discussed, those members you’ve reached and resonated with make
it all worth it. It’s always unfortunate the negative close minded people that like to argue are always here on nearly every thread though.
I dont often write a lot here because of my ‘Way’ I live by. I know emotions are a choice and I know Im not obliged to have an opinion where as
many do not even know this and thus I choose the perception that works with me also due my affinity with ‘feeling energy’ as such I run the risk
of being misunderstood. But what I offer is freedom from making yourself feel bad about issues and affecting your life in the way that what you are
will live on after you.
Have the best day
