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 Heart That Is You

It is the mind that worries,
It is the mind that lacks faith, 
It is the mind that doubts.
Beyond the mind and its doubts is the heart,
The feelings of the heart are always there,
The heart is above and below the mind,
The heart is within and outside the mind.

It is the heart that truly knows,
It is the heart that truly accepts,
It is the heart that truly creates,
It is the heart that Is,
It is the heart that Is You.
