Returning to the Flock

In the movie, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Jonathan knows there is more to life than what the majority of his flock believes. So, he sets out to fly faster than any seagull has flown before and eventually accomplishes his goal. The flock perceives his flying as reckless and are not yet able to open to a more expanded perspective similar to Jonathan's. As such, fear takes over and they label Jonathan as an outcast. Nevertheless, Jonathan continues his pursuit of flying faster as he travels the world alone. Jonathan is mentored by a divine master seagull after his ascension. After many "lessons," the master knows Jonathan is now ready to share what he has remembered with others. As such, the master says to Jonathan, "Jonathan, it's time to return to the flock." Although reluctant to go at first, Jonathan soon realizes deep inside that he, too, is a master and returns to his flock.

Indeed, it is time for me and other lightworkers to return to the "flock" and begin the next level of our work. It is time for us to realize our mastery and inspire others to live their mastery.

After almost 3000 miles, I have returned to my "flock." I am now back in Central NY, my birthplace. I know it is important for me to begin the next level of my soul work and mastery here in NY.

Seagulls have been appearing to me since visiting Sandusky, Ohio. As I was getting into my car this morning, I looked up and there was a seagull. Of course there is more to the sightings than just "returning to the flock." Masters at moving through the three worlds they inhabit - air, water, and land -seagulls are as much at home on land as they are in the air or at sea, easily bridging heaving and earth. Something I find increasingly easy to do.

What I find challenging is adjusting to total surrender, allowing the road, the land, and the moment to guide me.
I am slowly adjusting to living on the road, surrendering a little more each day, allowing my divine plan to unfold, moment by moment. In truth, the lesson of surrender is applicable for more than just living on the road. It is a life lesson. Act in accordance with your divine plan and then, get out of your way.

As I organize talks and book signings, I remember to get out of my way. I surrender to the flow of energy for the day - I plan when it feels right, and play when it feels right. All things in balance.

One of my stops along the way was at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. Immense red and white rock formations emerge in stark contrast to the green trees, endless blue skies, and breathtaking view of Pikes Peak. Every formation has been given a name. One is appropriately named balance rock, a large boulder that sits balanced upon another rock formation. After obliging a couple to take their picture in front of balance rock, the woman asked if I wanted my picture taken in front of the rock. Staying in the moment, I realized just how perfect it was, and of course said yes. I now have the energy of balance intermingled with mine on a snapshot. Balance is key, especially for these changing times. It is our essential state. Just as joy and abundance are when we live our soul's passion and purpose.

As I continue to live my passion and purpose to assist others in realizing their own passion and purpose, I am grateful to have returned to the "flock." I am grateful for each moment I bring some light and love to someone whom I haven't yet met and remind myself and others that we are all connected. No one is a stranger...we are all part of the one flock.

Joanathan, it's time to return to the flock."

Here I am, universe. Grateful to be of service.
