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”.

Heart Opening

The heart opens at the appropriate stage of the inner that point, great progress has been made and then it seems to me there is a kind of a positive feedback loop from which there is no escape. Who would want to escape from such feelings?!

The more love, joy and bliss we feel in our hearts, the more this is reflected back to us from the world, our circumstances and the people we attract into our lives and then these experiences produce more love and joy in our hearts... 

To be able to integrate these feelings into very day life is helped when we become conscious of our breathing, a deep relaxation, and the feelings in the heart spread. It is amazing how it becomes ones natural ‘state of Being’.

God/Universal Consciousness/All That Is can then do his/her work through us when we surrender to the moment, the natural flow of things, when we accept and let go....when we swim with the currents of energy flowing in our hearts and become open to what the Universe has to offer us. These gifts we then accept with humility and thanks.
