Fire and the story of burning country

by

Over thousands of years, people of the land have inherited ancient knowledge systems from the earth, handed down by the ancestors over many generations through the practical and spiritual teaching methodologies. For what was the lore of the land, became lore of the people: a responsibility to country to keep the balance for all living things and enable people to live sustainably for thousands of years. One of those responsibilities was fire. If fire LORES were respected the land would become rich and plentiful, if LORES were broken, then bad things would happen, fire would become dangerous and the land unbalanced.”
