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”.

Love Yourself

Always try to look after yourself,
Look after Your physical body,
Look after Your soul,
Look after Your mind.

Love Yourself, 
You can only love others fully,
If you first replenish Your own energy,
If you first nourish the love that is within You.

Don't feel guilty about looking after Yourself these days,
Because this gives You the energy,
The energy to invite Others into Your energy field,
Should They desire it.

Be kind to Yourself,
Give Yourself fully to the energy,
To be the best You can be,
In every single moment.

This will be easy,
When You love Yourself,
For then you can best serve others,
Because ultimately there is no difference,
Between Yourself and Others,
Serve Others - serve Yourself,
Serve Yourself - serve Others.
