I took a break from the Parliament workshop and found a quiet place to meditate on the banks of the sacred Yarra River. The Yarra River must have looked quite different before Melbourne was born and all the buildings were built. What a gift it is that the Parliament chose to meet along the Yarra River, a river that has played a central role in the practices and beliefs of the Aborigines. As I continued to reflect, I was suddenly honored with the presence of an indigenous Aborigine elderly man who willingly shared the struggles and spiritualities of the Aborigines. He suggested I visit the museum of Aborigine art, which I did and found it hard to leave because, it was so fascinating. The depth of spirituality expressed in the Aboriginal art work is breath-taking.
