Lateral Love Australia Song of the Week

The Hollies – He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother

Sing along with the Hollies

The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where

But I’m strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother
So on we go

His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We’ll get there

For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

If I’m laden at all
I’m laden with sadness
That everyone’s heart
Isn’t filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It’s a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there
Why not share

And the load
Doesn’t weigh me down at all
He ain’t heavy he’s my brother

He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

Global Elders Gathering Australia 2012

Global Elders Gathering Australia 2012
Intentional Gathering of Wisdom Keepers, Future Leaders and Visionary NGO’s 
Date: November 10th – 15th  Location: Far North Queensland, Australia.  

Coinciding with the total solar eclipse on November 14th 2012, the Rare Earth Foundation and Para Pachamama ~Spirit of Earth are assisting the Gungganji Council of Elders in facilitating a 5 day Global Elders Gathering in Far North Queensland, for elders, wisdom keepers, future leaders, visionary NGo’s and community workers to come together and share their vision for the future.

Modern society is currently facing a time where it needs guidance from the Indigenous peoples of this earth. The younger generations need guidance. We have global problems that are affecting our lives and that of the planet. We believe by connecting with Indigenous cultures we can restore balance to our society.

This is the time. People are ready to listen.

The Solar Eclipse is a moment in time to focus our intentions, share our hearts’ visions, and bring forth the dances, songs and storylines that allow us to bring into being the vision of a New Earth.

Focus of the Gathering: 

  • Create a space to honour and acknowledge the Story of the Land in Yarrabah that foretold of this Gathering during the Solar Eclipse.
  • Create open space to honour Earth based Cultures from Australia and around the world in which Song, Dance, Story and Wisdom are shared. To respect the ancestors who have continued to “sing the new songs, dance the new dances and bring the tribes together”
  • To create a space for young people to connect with the Elders and cultural leaders so they may deepen their understanding and appreciation of Traditional ways and knowing
  • Create a space to Connect indigenous nations with NGO’s, philanthropists, fundraisers, captains of industry and community development workers to bring into being sustainable solutions, together, for the many issues of our time
  • Create the first chapter of a digital message stick from Indigenous Nations exploring solutions to problems facing the planet and humanity

Digital Message Stick

The message from Indigenous nations created at this gathering will travel across the globe in the form of a ‘digital message stick’ to many different earth based tribes, communities and individuals to hear their story and share their message.

The digital message stick will then return to Australia to be shared at the next Gathering. Using video conferencing technology, participants in this global message will be able to link-up with Australia to discuss different ways we can share this unified message with the world. Tribes and young leaders will also attend this future gathering and share stories since attending the 2012 gathering.

Once completed, the ‘digital message stick’ will be a united global message from our Indigenous peoples. This message will then be shared with the world.

Bring your energy to this Gathering.


This is a free energy event, everyone is donating their time and energy to ensure this gathering can take place. We are humbled and amazed by what has manifested so far with our collective energy.

This Gathering is an anchor point for restoration and acknowledgement of the Gungganji Council of Elders, there are important stories to share.

Please help us pass this message to others you know will resonate with this story. Let us use all means available to get the calling out to as many people as we can.
