After reading Ms. Morgans first of her Real People tales, I was left with a sort of warm glow from the lessons contained within the pages, but a little rattled by the heavy handedness. Then I came across the controversy surrounding the actuality of her stated experiences. Still I had liked what she had said in her first book, so I picked up her second. Sadly, I found it to be both a plodding reworking of her first effort that became over burdened with it's own pedantic preachiness. Yes, yes, European man bad, indigenous Australian good. We *got* it the first time. We learn of some of the specific atrocities committed by the acts of the not Real People, but presented in a style that I can only feel was exploitive to Ms. Morgan's own purpose. Cultural jingoism is still jingoismif it purports to be The Answer. I am wholeheartedly against killing puppies, giving hysterectomies to nine year old little girls and ripping babies from their mothers arms. I'm also against high-handed superior lording over others like almost every single European-Australian does in these books. I am all for gratitude and gentle co-habitation with all beings on this planet - but having said that, I got tired of the high handedness of the tones of this book.
I also don't appreciate fiction being passed off as fact. Someone seems to be fooling herself. Either that or we're the chumps. Yann Martel had the decency to present his "Life of Pi" as the fiction it is. I think this makes it even more true. Ms. Morgan may want to consider her own lessons. Always Truth.

In isolation, the 'Real People' have evolved beyond the rest of us in many ways. Instead of using the human mind towards advancement in science and technology, the industrial revolution and human individuality, they have developed their minds to host and use higher consciousness in everything from communication, to food gathering, to healing. Living a primitive existence, but far from primitive in their collective consciousness based on 'Oneness' and 'Forever', we are given a glimpse of the potential for human evolution beyond ego. Even more informative is Marlo Morgan's other book on this subject, 'Mutant Message Down Under'. In 'From Forever' she includes a perspective on how the Australian Aborigines were (and still are) treated by European settlers. As horrific and familiar as this history is in many parts of the world, the real Mutant Message is the beautiful portrait of a people so pure in their souls that we are able to obtain through them an orientation into the future of human spiritual evolution.

Format: Paperback
because I think it is badly written fiction which I cannot believe is based on any kind of fact based research. Yet the author is seemingly representing the "teaching" herein as "aboriginal". She does the Indigenous people of Australia and the reading public a grave disservice by continuing to represent herself as someone who is a "messenger" for this culture. There is nothing wrong with the lessons themselves, and no doubt they are appealing to the New Age fan, but it is arrogant to continue making money by tapping into a Western love of the "other" and exploiting a people who have asked her to stop it. She publicly apologized to eight Aboriginal elders in January of 1996 but she continues to capitalize on the midleading impression that her first book was reality based. In this book she prints a picture of herself with Burnum Burnum who publicly severed ties with her and the first book in March of 1996 in a statement wherein he made it clear that he is was a non-initiated, non-traditional, urbanised Aboriginal from the East Coast of Australia. Since he passed away in 1997 he cannot protest her exploiting his image. Anyone who is interested in what actual Aboriginals have to say about this woman and her "message" should check out the Dumbartung Aboriginal site and read about the investigation they have done into this woman, her background and her supposed experience with "the tribal people". When this pseudo-anthro fantasy is accepted by the mainstream reading community as the truth a great disservice is being done to Australian Aboriginals who are real people trying to make a place for themselves in a world in which they have been denied equal access. It is deeply disturbing that this exploitation of Indigenous culture continues in the 21st century. My book club selected this book and against my better judgement I purchased it - for that I am truly sorry.

Marlo Morgan's second volume is captivating by its sheer, simple beauty right from the first page. I thought her first book was entertaining,educational and haunting. I enjoyed this one even more; it is quite different, though the lessons similar. I am happy to note that the "civilised" world is finally coming around to those ancient truths. I found the scene of the twin's birth absolutely breathtaking and glorious - what a way to begin a book! Throughout the book it seems clear that the two are destined to meet again and I almost dreaded the "cliche ending" I felt was bound to come. I was wrong. I could not have imagined a better and less expected ending. Brilliant! BRAVO! I plan to read this book again some day and have just obtained the first book so I may re-read it. Whether you read this as fiction (as some claim) or truth (as most believe) - it matters not. The spiritual messages are clear, true, universal, sound, loving and beautiful. Is that not what matters most?
