JLS - John Livingstone Seagull

Jonathan Livingstone Seagull is a book written by Richard Bach. It is a fable about a seagull, Jonathan, who is trying to learn about life, flight and self-perfection.

Jonathan is bored with daily life and squabbles. Seized by a passion for flight, he pushes himself and learns everything he can about flying. His willingness to conform dramatically reduces and finally results in his expulsion from the rest of the flock. Now an outcast, he continues to learn, becoming increasingly pleased with his abilities while leading a peaceful and happy life.

One day Jonathan meets two gulls who take him to a better world found through perfection of knowledge. There he meets another seagull who loves to fly. He discovers that his sheer tenacity and desire make him unique.

But Jonathan was unsatisfied with his new life and he returns to Earth to find others like himself. He wants to tell them what he's learnt and to spread his love for flight. Jonathan succeeds and a flock of other gulls who have also been outlawed, gather round him.

This bestselling classic is a fable about seeking a higher purpose in life and achieving dreams.

Flight is indeed the metaphor that makes this story soar.

You have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way. He was not bone and feather but a perfect idea of freedom and flight, limited by nothing at all.! Jonathan Seagull discovered that boredom and fear and anger are the reasons that a gull's life is so short, and with those gone from his thought, he lived a long fine life indeed. We're free to go where we wish and to be what we are We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!
