I just read Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. It’s a story about a seagull’s journey to greatness, love and freedom. It’s a story about finding the courage to live a full life regardless of limitation. It’s about that voice inside that says I can do more, see more, feel more and be
more. It’s about listening to that voice amidst the noise of naysayers and negative limited thinking. It’s about listening to that voice despite painful memories of defeat.
I pulled a few treasures from the book to share with you:
“Why is it, that the hardest thing in the world is to convince a bird that he is free, and that he can prove it for himself if he’d just spend a little time practicing? Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you’ll see the way to fly.”
“Your whole body, from wing tip to wing tip, is nothing more than your thought itself, in a form you can see. Break the chains of your thought and you break the chains of your body too.”
