I’m currently reading:
“Mutant Message Down Under”
by Marlo Morgan.
It’s a fantastic story of a woman on a walkabout through Australia with the Aboriginal people. I won’t go into to much detail but I will say that it’s beautiful and is making me clean out my apartment.
I wanted to share a small passage from the book, one that helps me define my beliefs in life and creation.
“Mutants have many beliefs; they say your way is different from my way, your savior is not my savior, your forever is not my forever. But the truth is, all life is one life…
If you hurt someone, you hurt self. If you help someone you help self”
Without giving much more away, the “Mutants” referred to in the passage is a name for us. Us humans who have mutated from an earth loving and earth sharing species to a selfish, greedy and destructive species.
I recommend the read. Furthermore, I recommend thinking about life not as is told, but as is felt.
+++ Apparently there are mixed feelings about the authenticity and accuracy of this book. Some critics claim it to be a bogus tale. If you read the introduction, however, you’ll notice that A) It’s a self proclaimed fictional work based on actual events, and B) the book is less about facts than it is about ideas. I believe in the ideas and there isn’t anything outrageous or offensive with spreading them. +++
