Jonathan Seagull

jonathan seagull story

Jonathan Seagull spent his days alone, but he flew way out beyond the far Cliffs. His one sorrow was not solitude, it was that the other gulls refused to believe the glory of flight that awaited them; they refused to open their eyes and see.

He learned more each day. He learned that streamlined high – speed dive could bring him to find the rare and tasty fish that schooled ten feet below the surface of the ocean: he no longer needed fishing boats and stale bread for survival. He learned to sleep in the air, setting a course at night across the offshore wind, covering a hundred miles from sunset to sunrise. With the same inner control, he flew through heavy sea fogs and climbed above them into the dazzling clear skies….. in the very times when every other gull stood on the ground, knowing nothing but mist and rain. He learned to ride high winds far inland, to dine there on delicate insects.

What he had once hoped for the Flock, he now gained for himself alone; he learned to fly, and was not sorry for the price that he had paid. Jonathan Seagull discovered that boredom and fear and anger are the reasons that a gull’s life is so short, and with these gone from his thought, he lived a long fine life indeed.

(From, Jonathan Livingston Seagull a story, by Richard Bach….. the most celebrated fable of our time)

    1. Hello there, firstly thank you for your kind words. Well,there are two facebook group communities that come to my mind which are ‘HayHouse summit community’ and ‘Dr. Wayne Dyer’s teachings community’. You could check them up. I am not sure if this would be helpful. But this is the best that I am aware of currently. Thank you!
