This month I’ve read Jonathan Livingston Seagull, the classic book by Richard Bach. If you have some free time, or you’re just trying to go a little more philosophical I really recommend reading this.

The story revolves around a seagull who tries to learn about flying and life but it has so much deeper meanings and interpretations. This book is actually a fable in novella form that is a must-read for everyone.

I have reread it several times during my teens and I can assure you it has help me a lot to see the world that we live in, and myself, in different ways, the best part is you can actually read it in a single day, it only takes about an hour to read; as you grow and read this story it will bring new ideas and perceptions of your life.

“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!”

“Your whole body… 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…”
