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”.

Acting with integrity

 Image from: 

The universe can only support us fully when we act with integrity.

The universe is fundamentally based on ethical and moral codes, which are developmental / evolutionary - not fixed, but which are essential for the cohesive integration and harmony of the whole system.

Coherence within freedom is integrity - integration.

When we are integrated (acting with integrity) within ourselves we are in harmony with the universe. 

We are parts of that harmonious whole. It supports us and we contribute to it. 

This is when the synchronicities / meaningful coincidences occur as we flow with that greater intelligence.


  1. Yes, very interesting.... integrity comes from recognizing integration... long live the seagull!
