In the Dreamtime, the gods
walked the earth and shaped it according to their creative whims
and their serious needs. That creation of the 'world' also structured
it for us; it provided the frame for the 'mirror' with which we
reflect 'heaven'. In ritual, we leave linear, secular time and enter
the sacred time of the Dreamtime. In that space, we can communicate
with the gods directly, learn from them and possibly acquire spiritual
knowledge of the type that is forever beyond language. In such rituals,
we explore other dimensions of the 'world' and dimensions of ourselves
that are not reachable otherwise. If we cannot do so directly, the
shaman will do so for us with the difficult techniques of ecstasy,
for that is his sacred trust. When the shaman returns from spirit-soul
journeys, he or she communicates the experience to the clan and
all are enriched and made wiser by the experience.
We think that the Dreamtime
is specific to the native Australian Aboriginals but the historical
record suggests otherwise. These extraordinary people are 'simply'
the last stewards of the Dreamtime; they have miraculously preserved
it into the 20th century.
Have we lost our Dreamtime? Have progress and modern day living
obliterated our connection to the Ancient Ones?
We all need to find our
roots and re-locate the Traditional Dreamtime of our ancestors.
When our Bicameral Minds Broke Down (c.3,000 BC - 0 AD) and Consciousness
with its Self Awareness and narrative 'I' appeared, we lost the
easy ability to talk to the gods. We MUST regain it if our overall
'health' is to be restored. Isolated regions of recovery, as promoted
by Western reductionist science when working alone, will not suffice.
We thereby hold in our
hands the ultimate power, the possibility of affecting the QUALITY
of our emotional/spiritual lives and also the possibility of the
affecting the QUALITY of Gaia -Mother Earth - the global ecosystem.
We can all be bodhisattvas to Gaia if we choose.
