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”.

If Albatross shows up, it means:
Whatever issues have been in the way of your spiritual or emotional growth are now cleared.
You’re going through a chaotic period in your life, but you’ll be able to sail through it & come out the other side stronger and even more adaptable.
This is a cycle in your life when you’re wandering about without clear goals or direction, yet one that is necessary for your personal developmental & spiritual growth.
Be patient with yourself as you meander on your quest, trusting that you’ll find what you’re looking for just over the next horizon.
Call on Albatross when:
You’re facing a burdensome task or a period in your life where there are some unpleasant things to deal with.
You’re getting itchy feet and want to do something adventurous without necessarily having a specific destination in mind.
Others are pressuring you to find stability & purpose, but in your heart of hearts you know that you’re just not ready to do so.
You feel weighted down & trapped by all your responsibilities & obligations, and to break out of the rut you’re in.
If Albatross is your Power Animal:
You’re capable of going the distance when involved with any long-term project.
You have a great deal of resilience, and are able to bounce back from any hardship very quickly.
You seem to be perpetually on a search, even though you’re not always sure what you’re seeking.
As you mature, you attain greater & greater clarity about your life purpose, goals, & direction, even if these change from time to time.
For you to thrive, you must always be involved in some type of artistic & creative pursuit.
