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 Master

Created from the first word ever spoken,
Your body is a tool of fantastic function,
From omnipresent vibrational energies,
Like waves on the surface of the sea,
Through which everything connects,
Within which you move gracefully,
Nourished by light from the sun,
A temple in which to worship,
A sculpture of perfect form,
An evolving work of art,
A fragment of eternity.

Be the waves,
Know the waves,
Be with the waves,
Surround the waves,
Be within the waves,
Be above the waves,
Be below the waves,
Be one with the waves.

Breathe like the master,
You are!
Move like the master,
You are!
Walk like the master,
You are! 

Be one with the waves,
Be below the waves,
Be above the waves,
Be within the waves,
Surround the waves,
Be with the waves,
Know the waves, 
Be the waves. 

The Master breathes consciously.

The Master breathes with thanksgiving,
The Master breathes with compassion,
The Master breathes with knowledge,
The Master breathes with reverence,
The Master breathes with elegance,
The Master breathes with purpose,
The Master breathes with serenity,
The Master breathes with wisdom,
The Master breathes with passion,
The Master breathes with feeling,
The Master breathes with dignity,
The Master breathes with insight,
The Master breathes with energy,
The Master breathes with power,
The Master breathes with grace,
The Master breathes with focus,
The Master breathes with truth,
The Master breathes with love.

The Master moves consciously.

The Master moves with thanksgiving,
The Master moves with compassion,
The Master moves with knowledge,
The Master moves with reverence,
The Master moves with elegance,
The Master moves with purpose,
The Master moves with serenity,
The Master moves with wisdom,
The Master moves with passion,
The Master moves with feeling,
The Master moves with dignity,
The Master moves with insight,
The Master moves with energy,
The Master moves with power,
The Master moves with grace,
The Master moves with focus,
The Master moves with truth,
The Master moves with love.

The Master walks consciously.

The Master walks with thanksgiving,
The Master walks with compassion,
The Master walks with knowledge,
The Master walks with reverence,
The Master walks with elegance,
The Master walks with purpose,
The Master walks with serenity,
The Master walks with wisdom,

The Master is consciousness.

You are the waves,
And the waves know,
You are with the waves,
You surround the waves,
You are within the waves,
You are above the waves,
You are below the waves,
You are one with the waves.

Breathe the light,
Move in the light,
Walk in the light,
Know the light,
Be the light.

Breathe with God,
Move with God,
Walk with God,
Know God,
Be God.

The Master is not Being,
The Master is Being,
Being the Master,
The Master is.

Be the Master.

Forever and ever,
Amen.
