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”.

A new state of oneness (for 2013)!

To thine own self be true,
The most important thing is to be honest to yourself,
To be true to yourself,
To be unfailingly and consistently yourself in all situations,
To be balanced and healthy - in harmony with everything and everyone around you,
To be open,
An open book,
But also to be discerning. 

Be the person you are here to be,
A prayerful and meditative person
Aiming for the ever elusive goal of mastery :)
Be You! 
It's who you are!
Your time is now.

With love and blessings for 2013!
