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”.

Seeing with the Heart

There is a way of "seeing" - from the heart, 
Through feeling. 
When the heart opens, it is easier to understand this. 
It is something that can't be understood from the mind - only from the heart...

But of course, 
It is all about balance - allowing the energy to flow freely Through all of the chakras...
The higher ones and the lower ones,
The heart is the centre, 
The balance point, 
The fulcrum, 
So we can find that balance. 

It's great to go into the silence, 
To recognise the feelings in the heart. 
Those feeling are full of bliss and joy,
The closest to experiencing Heaven on Earth.

I loved what she said:

"So I am now trying to embrace my feelings and sense where in the body I sense them, 
And be thankful for the calm, loving, fearless feelings I have (almost in an affirmation-kind of way)"

I know what she meant - "fearless" - love that!
By trying to identify the feelings,
In analyzing them, 
They can be chased away...they dissipate, 
Those feelings cannot be grasped....

It seems that it is only necessary to recognise the feelings, 
Embrace them, 
Accept them,
And bless them...

That is all...

That's what to aim for...
By embracing the feelings in Your consciousness, 
You honour their presence and the  energy keeps flowing.
