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”.

Wake Up Humans - Use Your Power!

 Received February 26, 2010

Wake up humans. Correct the error of your ways. Mend your broken planet. Give back to Gaia. Move out of the darkness towards the light. Save yourselves and your planet.

Things cannot go on the way they are. Things must change. Accepting the fact that the darkness is present is no excuse for ignoring it.

By moving to the light actively, consciously you can each effect change. The problem is that many of you - most of you in fact - are wallowing in your subjective feelings of seeming powerlessness and resigning yourselves to the flow of events outside of you. Take your Power back! Take sovereignty over yourselves and events. You are all Kings and Queens with infinite Power inside you. You are all children of the Creator. Children of God. You are all Gods and Goddesses! The darkness is ineffective against you.

Ask yourself if you can bear to see Gaia suffering in the way she is. She is also your Mother. She has had enough and she is taking her own Power back. She is waking up and she is bringing a significant portion of humanity with her. Are you going to be one of them or are you going to continue to fester in your own pool of detritus? Are you going to continue to watch events unfold with no feeling, no empathy in your heart? How will you hold your so-called leaders to account? How will you create better ways of ‘Being’? How will you evolve better ways of ‘Doing’? For remember that first is ‘Being’ then is ‘Doing’. You cannot do things to change something, to become something. Everything that happens in your life comes from your state of ‘Being’. Your center of balance is your heart. Once you realize that All Is One and One Is All, you find your pivot point - the fulcrum around which your life revolves in a spiral of perfection. Then you learn to exhibit and exude The Power...Your Power!

But, again, are you prepared to change your ways? Will you actively, consciously change your lifestyles? Will you take charge of yourselves and actively contribute to a society that is for the good of all, rather than for the benefit of the few? What organizations, established to help Gaia, will you join? What letters will you write to encourage change? It doesn’t matter if those politicians to whom you write listen or not, for it is in the very act of writing the words down, clicking the send button or licking the envelope, patting the stamp and sending your letter off, through which you effect the change. This is because the words you write will be imbued with love, feeling, belief and compassion from your heart and these ways of being will help make the changes you desire on their own merit. 


You see, you have no need to feel powerless. A small proportion of the population, who know a secret, can pass that information on to the rest of the population without them even realizing they are being influenced by it! This is proven science. Fighting in the Lebanon was reduced significantly when the square root of one percent of the population prayed and meditated for peace!

Have compassion, have love, gain knowledge, acquire wisdom. Think about the consequences of every single decision you make, the way you interact with every single person during every day. What consequences ensue? What effects do your flapping butterfly wings have on the other side of the world? Do they cause tornadoes or pleasant breezes? For the fundamental principle of the universe, the golden rule, is cause and effect. Everything is connected. Each and everyone of us is connected to each other and to everything else. For every action, there is an equivalent reaction - remember? Love begets love, fear begets fear.


So, you must monitor yourselves. What does your heart tell you? For everything starts with you as an individual divine being. You are The Power! You have The Power within you to overcome the darkness.

But even in your moments, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, even years of doubt, if you have the glowing joy of love in your heart, and the recognition of the connectedness of all things, you will overcome those doubts. For you will be free to be you, to find the real you inside, the one who has existed since the beginning and who has evolved to the level of consciousness you have now. For only evolved spirits enter human bodies everywhere in the universe.

So, don’t put yourself down. Don’t live in doubt. Change your world. Change the world! Heal the planet! For you have The Power! Use the Power! Be the Power!
