Alphabetarion # The Lake | Murat ildan / Martu tribe women

Aboriginal Women from the Martu tribe, Ngayartu Kujarra (Lake Dora), 2008

“Some people look like frozen lakes; break the ice, there you will see a lively world!” 

“The little lake you love is the biggest ocean for you!” 

“Not every lake dreams to be an ocean. Blessed are the ones who are happy with whom they are.” 

“If you are a boat and your lake is frozen, what can you do? You will wait for the spring! We are lucky 
that we are humans, we don’t have to wait for the spring; we can break the ice if necessary, we can use 
fire to open our way! Nothing can stop the mind if the mind decides to move to his target!” 

“Reflection is a good reminder of the truth! You may turn your eyes away from the truths, but the reflections 
will remind them to you! And anything which describes a truth well is a reflection of that truth! Turn your eyes 
away from the Moon, then the lake will remind the Moon to you, the shadows of the wolves howling against the 
Moon will remind the truth to you, even in the eyes of a frog, you shall see the Moon! Thus, if you turn your face 
away from the truth, it will never work! Because the reminders of truth are everywhere and they are as strong 
as the truth itself!” 

“Frog who wants to be a king of the lake by terrorizing other frogs is not a frog but a scorpion or a snake!”

“Find a calm lake and wait for the twilight in silence! There, existence will visit you with all its magnificence! 
The existence of the Existence can best be felt in the presence of dimness and in the absence of crowds and
