Johann's Awakening - A Seagull's Story of Enlightenment
Publisher: Arthur Telling
At the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, young Jonathan Livingston Seagull caught the world’s notice as he sought to break beyond the pitiful life of those average mortals populating the earth. Conquering all, entering into the eternal bliss, Jonathan left us, as did this magical spiritual age of enlightenment. What happened?
In that era many seagulls emulated Jonathan; their stories never told. But one mighty bird, Johann Earlington, a contemporary of Jonathan, too looked to greater heights, too wanted answers, and too found the ultimate abode; but today, forty years after, his efforts lie in ruins. The world, his magnificent new world, has come full circle back to the pain of boredom and hopelessness of repetition.
As our story begins, Johann is doubting his own accomplishments; rising to great heights, finding the most glorious of all heavens, lovingly showing this new way to any gull who would listen. But the new age is dead, and there seems no resolution.
The end of the old brings the beginning of the new when there emerges a teacher, the Lord himself, in all majesty of Jesus, Buddha, and the still small voice. He shows Johann his errors and gives him new direction. Join Johann as he once and for all learns the true way to enlightenment. The simplicity of it may surprise you.
This author gives honor to Jonathan Livingston Seagull author Richard Bach who first aroused an impatient age, upon which this book is born.
