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 Illusion of Separation

You have believed for far too long (according to your measure of time) that you are separate from everything on your beautiful blue planet and indeed everything in the Universe, that you are separate from everyone else. This is an illusion of the plane in which you reside. In the depths of your soul you know this. I will say it again, separation is an illusion. The Universe, even in the apparently material reality in which you reside is much more "fluid' than you realise. Actually, your scientists already know this. And your great mystics and sages have been teaching this wisdom for thousands of years. Separation is an illusion. Fundamentally, the universe at all levels or planes of reality is comprised of energy, nothing more nothing less. Your Einstein demonstrated that matter is simply identical to energy. Furthermore, this energy is infinitely intelligent. It is unlimited and unlimiting. It is pure consciousness. It is the mind of God. For, as you know from your Bible:

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." John Chapter 1, 1-3.

"The Word" was the first thought, the first manifestation of consciousness there had ever been. For consciousness is at the root of the tree that is the Universe in all dimensions/planes/levels of reality. Everything in existence extends from consciousness. Consciousness is everywhere. The entire Universe is a conscious being unto itself. The Universe became manifest within the mind of God through the energy associated with thought. This energy was/is pure and infinite light, which could then be condensed ultimately into matter at your level of reality. God could become manifest in form and function. That is the reason that there can be no separation. That is why everything is connected. Everything that exists in the Universe came about first and foremost as a thought, an idea. Form/matter is energy made manifest and energy is thought in action. So the entire Universe is the expression of a single Being - God, with infinite consciousness and intelligence. The Universe creates, it reproduces, it evolves, it is alive! Therefore, everything in the Universe, including you, is manifested from a single source, God. Everything is connected. Everything exists within the mind of God. Separation is an illusion.
