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”.

Faith in My Abilities

I have faith in my abilities to receive guidance, support and direction in my life. 
When I ask for guidance, support and direction I receive it - unconditionally. 
I am grateful for the support I receive from my guides. 
I notice the the birds that appear and the white feathers and the leaves that fall at my feet. 
I know that I am on the right path! 
I trust in the rightness of things and I have faith in the future. 
My power is now, in the spacious present. 
For it is in the present that I plant the seeds that will grow into the produce of the future.
