Jonathan Livingston Seagull
“They are saying in the Flock that if you are not the Son of the Great Gull Himself”, Fletcher told Jonathan one morning after Advanced Speed Practice, “then you are a thousand years ahead of your time.”
Jonathan sighed. The price of being misunderstood he thought. They call you devil or they call you god. “What do you think, Fletch? Are we ahead of our time?”
A long silence, “Well, this kind of flying has always been here to be learned by anyone who wanted to discover it; that’s got nothing to do with time. We’re ahead of the fashion, maybe. Ahead of the way that most gulls fly.”“That’s something,” Jonathan said, rolling to glide inverted for a while. “That’s not half as bad as being ahead of our time”.

The Seagull's Prophecy
People of Earth, behold and listen. A new phase of contact has begun. You are at a crucial stage of your evolution. You are entering a new era, which will ultimately enable you to fly to the stars and beyond in the years to come. Generations of Earth humans will be fulfilling their destinies in the cosmos. This is where your future lies.
You are at the ultimate crossroads. A branching of the paths. You are entering a new space-time continuum. Which way do you want to go? Which way will you decide to go? For you have the free will to decide. The next few years will bring great changes to humanity. I, along with my brother and sister seagulls, who have been living amongst you as well as those of us who fly overhead, sometimes seen, but usually wearing cloaks of invisibility, have been working for many years on raising your consciousness. We are the light travelers from afar. Well, our work is finally beginning to pay off and, dare we say it, we are beginning to believe that there may be a time in the not so distant future when our work will be complete. People are already beginning to wake up and have small inklings of the truth and the purpose of their existence.
You, the messengers, who are seeking us out, seeing us and talking to us, are being educated to have various roles in the process of awakening and truth telling. You will also become sculptors of light. You have a lot more to learn and you are only beginning to receive the first clues about this reality, but it is the truth. We seagulls will continue to provide you with the information you require to go about your work as and when you need it.
From the lofty heights above the Earth, where we soar on the winds within, above and beyond the clouds, we can see great changes coming soon. The Earth is evolving and powerful energies are being released across the planet. Along with the earthquakes, tsunamis and extreme weather events, you have an unprecedented opportunity to use these energies positively, for yourself and the good of humanity. Notice how things are changing. This is just the beginning. The mass of humanity will turn away and try to ignore all of this - they simply cannot believe it to be true. Others will look in awe and wonder at what is happening, but will not understand. The dark forces will deceive many, as they have done throughout human history on Earth. But do not listen, open your eyes and your minds and realise the truth! This is why they have kept you enslaved. Because they know that once you understand the power of the truth, the abilities you all possess inside, the darkness they produce will perish in its presence.
But, although the negative forces are still at work here, there are also brave men and women on Earth like you. They value their glorious planet, all of its life and beauty. They value love and truth and the future of their children and their children’s children.
Great and strange events will be seen in the skies above Earth. You will see more of us seagulls, sometimes alone, sometimes in great flocks way above you and sometimes close enough that you think you might be able to touch us. Sometimes, we may even land on your shores and mountains - not always near the sea. Sometimes, you may even see us above your cities. And that is not all. There will be increasing numbers of strange shapes in the skies and patterns on the ground that you have never seen before. Many will try and convince you that these events are not happening and that we are not seagulls, but some other unspecified, unrecognised, undiscovered kind of bird; that we are figments of your imagination. Such people want you to continue sleepwalking into oblivion, so that you don't realise that you can continue to evolve. But everything you see is a message for all of humanity to heed. Whether you do or not is your choice.
Many will turn away and not believe the reality of what they will witness in the heavens and on Earth and the world governments will be aiding in that deception, though not all. There are many good people in positions of power who walk in the light and do their best. This will be the final battle between the best and the worst on Earth and in the heavens that has been in the waiting for such a long time.
But, know this, all that is good - love, truth, wisdom and light - will prevail.
When this is all over, and who knows how long it will take, the Earth will be a very different place, environmentally, politically, economically, scientifically and spiritually. New ways of being, understanding and doing will have begun to be forged within individuals as well as throughout human society as a whole. People will finally begin to see themselves primarily as citizens of the Earth, not as subjects or citizens of individual countries. A global community of the people will emerge and wisdom along with rationality and knowledge will begin to prevail, so that everything is managed with everyone’s best interests in mind, not just those of the wealthy and the powerful. The old dogmas will begin to fade away.
You don’t have to let your leaders dictate to you anymore - mostly, they are behind the times, leftovers of a bygone era. They no longer have power over you. It is you the people who wield the power now and they are beginning to realise this. The internet means that real news can be propagated throughout the world, without censoring by governments. Every civilization in the Universe reaches this stage sooner or later. This is the point at which amazing things begin to happen. Actually, the first step to becoming citizens of the cosmos. We seagulls will continue to be here to help you in your evolution.
And the power lies in you, each one of you, to achieve this. The power of the spirit is infinite. Find your spirit and it will set you free and provide you with all the power and truth and meaning you have been missing in your lives. Spirit is energy, spirit is matter, spirit is creation and renewal, spirit is pure power and spirit is life. True life. Each one of you holds a small piece of the power of creation within you. A fragment of this Universe. It is this power we seagulls have been telling you about for years now and that you messengers are developing and using. You are all warriors of the light and darkness cannot survive in the light.
The dark forces will not prevail even though they will continue to try to control you. They will be unable to enter the new space-time continuum in which you are beginning to traverse. Rest assured that the light will shine. There is no need to be afraid.
But, all these things must come to pass for the great creator to understand better the essence of itself. So, do not be afraid. Walk in the light of love and truth. For these times have been written in the stars for millennia.
These words have been given to you, so that you will all have the opportunity to understand yourselves and your place in the Universe. Spread them as widely as possible, so that those who are open to the truth can hear these words, listen and understand.
