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”.

Accepting the Gifts

Nothing happens by chance ... ....I picked up a book on Controversies on Science today and I thought to myself, "I wonder if there's anything in here about Alfred Russell Wallace?" (co-discoverer of theory of evolution) as he was quite a controversial character and became very interested in metaphysics and spiritualism. He thought that evolution was a much more guided process than the Neo-Darwinists believe. And, Lo and behold, I randomly opened the book to the page on Wallace! I literally did Laugh Out Loud! Again, wonderful.....

I love it when those kinds of coincidences/synchronicities happen and really enjoy them... such things will begin to happen more and more as our intuition develops and we trust in the flow of the Universe! :-) 

And, I'm not saying that I'm an expert by any means...sometimes I go for days without anything like that happening, but it's nice to accept those gifts when they appear....
