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”.

With Each Person You Meet

''To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction: or the forces of two bodies on each other are always equal and are directed in opposite directions''.
Newton's 3rd law of motion


With each Person You meet,
Each precious Person You interact with Day by precious Day,
Take Time,
Look into Their Eyes and touch Their Spirits,
Each time You do this,
A spark of Delight will ignite,
This spark will reproduce itself and evolve,
Throughout the body of the Person with whom you interact,
The spark is the Truth of Life,
And it is utterly knowable.

It will take Time,
But sooner than You would think,
The flames of innumerable candles will be lit like stars,
And the Person will begin to know Joy for the first Time in their Life,
True Joy, unencumbered by the restrictions of worry and fear and doubt.

Then,
As Time goes by,
The candles will move closer to each other,
The flames will meet,
And Energy will be released,
Seemingly from nowhere.
Pure Love, pure Consciousness, pure Creation!

The Spirit swells within the chest,
And is so joyous to know itself for the first time in this Life,
That it cannot be restrained and never will be again,
For Creation has to know itself.

The Spirit is released and begins to explore its temple the Body,
And the Body knows this and begins to Heal.

Realisation dawns,
Life is appreciated,
Life is Loved.

The person,
Body and Spirit joins the eternal chain,
And Creation Evolves,
On and On and On……..
