In the book ‘Mutant Message,’ (since called into question as biography) the author talks about life for the aboriginals of Australia. In their view we tend to live our lives as ‘mutants.’ They feel that much that we do is superficial and unrelated to the real ‘meat’ of life. For the aboriginals of Australia, life is about improving the soul, involving the development of talents, a positive attitude to each day, gratitude to the 'Oneness' for every gift, and doing that which always is for the greatest good. Another facet of their life acknowledges the need to grow and change, to shed the old and to live the new. Once a life work is complete, or no longer brings joy, it may be time to change, to move on, to keep growing.
