a historia sigue a una gaviota llamada Juan Salvador que se embarca en un viaje de descubrimiento personal y espiritual ( )

Forty years after my first encounter with Jonathan Livingston Seagull, I stumbled upon a well-worn first edition in my local thrift store. I remembered, somewhat fondly, how I had absolutely no clue what the book was about when I tackled it for high school English. Now, older and wiser, I decided to give it another go. What I discovered was a profound reflection of my own life story.

At its heart, Richard Bach's novella is not simply a story about a bird; it's a philosophical exploration of personal freedom, the relentless pursuit of excellence, and the quest for meaning. Like Jonathan Gull, I've often traveled my own path, driven by a cocksure belief that there's more to life than the conventional pursuits of my peers (girls, booze, football, etc.). If this resonates with you and your own stirrings of discontent, then this tale might just speak to you too.

My journey, much like Jonathan's, was shaped by an insatiable curiosity and a refusal to bow to the limitations imposed by others. Self-improvement—learning—was part of my fabric. I was propelled not by a need for recognition but by a desire to make a difference and achieve the (mostly non-material) things I wanted to achieve. In Jonathan's relentless (and often frustrating) efforts to master flight, this same desire was evident. His story reflects every person's potential to transcend their own (and externally imposed) limits through hard work and self-improvement.

I must admit, the spiritual aspects of Jonathan's journey—his ascent to higher realms—remain as elusive to me now as they did forty years ago. (I didn't understand it in Bach's other work of the 70s, Illusions, either.) The spiritual quest still escapes my full grasp, yet I sense its importance to those in search of meaning (and perhaps solace?) beyond the tangible. In this light, I can appreciate Jonathan's ascension as a metaphor for the journey toward enlightenment.

The most relatable aspect of Jonathan's saga is, perhaps, his resilience in the face of adversity. From challenges in my childhood to those in my career, I've faced my share of skeptics and barriers. Yet, I chose never to quit, even when tempted. My strength, much like Jonathan's, came through perseverance despite being ostracized by his flock. Passion. Dedication. These are the bedrocks of conviction, the forces that propel us forward despite obstacles.

Reflecting on the structure of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, it's now strikingly obvious how Bach divided the tale into three distinct parts, each echoing a distinct stage in life's journey—a nuance my teen self completely missed. The first part captures the zeal of youth, reflecting curiosity and defiance of conventions. The second examines introspection and learning, like the soul-searching I did in middle age. The final segment, where Jonathan becomes a teacher and mentor, reflects the later stages of life, where sharing wisdom and guiding others becomes a newfound purpose.

Duh. But not too obvious to someone still in the throes of adolescence.

However, now that I'm enlightened, I can see the book's enduring message:
We choose our next world through what we learn in this one. Learn nothing, and the next world is the same as this one, all the same limitations and lead weights to overcome.
This quote encapsulates the essence of Bach's work—the belief in the boundless potential of the individual to learn and grow. I've lived in many worlds throughout my life, each one distinct (and perhaps better?) than the last, enriched by lessons learned from both success and failure.

Whether you're in pursuit of personal freedom, dedicated to self-improvement, or a resilient soul navigating adversity, you can grow and succeed. Jonathan Gull's story reminds us that we can soar to heights previously unimagined, so long as we are willing to spread our wings. ( )

Autocitandomi, il sei settembre avevo scritto su questo blog: male che vada sono poco più di cento pagine, quanto potrà essere tremendo? Adesso, mentre sto per scrivere nero su bianco le mie opinioni su Il gabbiano Jonathan Livingston, sorrido davanti alla mia ingenuità.

Penso che Il gabbiano Jonathan Linvingston sia uno dei libri più pretenziosi che abbia letto nella mia vita. È pieno di voglia di essere profondo, di cambiarti la vita, di darti quel senso che vai cercando ovunque e non che non potrai non trovare in questo pennuto.

Continuo questa recensione mentre ridacchio come una scema perché il libro inizia con il nostro eroe che non usa le ali per procacciarsi il cibo, ma per volare a caso. Quindi rischia di morire di fame – ma gli scemi sono i suoi genitori che gli dicono che sta sbagliando. Capite perché io e questo libro siamo partiti con il piede sbagliato? Il volo privo di scopo puoi godertelo anche con la pancia piena, questa subdola glorificazione del non mangiare risparmiamocela.

E lo so che è una fiaba, che ha tutto un meraviglioso significato spirituale, ma per una volta tutta questa fulgida spiritualità non potremmo impacchettarla in una forma decente che non sembri uscita dal tema di un bambino di otto anni? (E non che i bambini di otto anni scrivano male, ma da un uomo di trent’anni mi aspetto una padronanza più matura della lingua).

Infine, non sono rimasta affatto colpita da questa spiritualità che a tratti mi è sembrata concretizzarsi in una setta terrificante tanto quanto lo Stormo che caccia Jonathan Livingston solo perché non magia e vola a caso; a tratti, invece, mi è sembrata molto elitaria con l’idea che solo alcuni gabbiani eletti riescano a passare di livello, magari solo perché sono nati in un certo modo. Mi ha messo una gran tristezza, alla quale si è aggiunta l’angoscia delle fotografie di gabbiani di Russell Munson, che paiono usciti da Gli uccelli di Hitchcock, e il fastidio dello strizzare l’occhio a chi legge per farlə sentire parte del popolo eletto.

This story is a cute reimagining of the Christian story of Jesus, using a seagull who aspires to an existence beyond the simple gathering of food. It was published in the 1970’s - a leftover artifact of the hippy free love revolution the late 60’s, and while there’s a nice story about morality and the value of perseverance, it’s fairly shallow. Still, for what amounts to an elaborate short story, I found it entertaining and engaging and something worth reading. ( )

By sunup, Jonathan Gull was practicing again. From five thousand feet the fishing boats were specks in the flat blue water, Breakfast Flock was a faint cloud of dust motes, circling. He was alive, trembling ever so slightly with delight, proud that his fear was under control. Then without ceremony he hugged in his forewings, extended his short, angled wingtips, and plunged directly toward the sea. By the time he passed four thousand feet he had reached terminal velocity, the wind was a solid beating wall of sound against which he could move no faster. He was flying now straight down, at two hundred fourteen miles per hour. He swallowed, knowing that if his wings unfolded at that speed he’d be blown into a million tiny shreds of seagull. But the speed was power, and the speed was joy, and the speed was pure beauty. He began his pullout at a thousand feet, wingtips thudding and blurring in that gigantic wind, the boat and the crowd of gulls tilting and growing meteor-fast, directly in his path. He couldn’t stop; he didn’t know yet even how to turn at that speed. Collision would be instant death. And so he shut his eyes. It happened that morning, then, just after sunrise, that Jonathan Livingston Seagull fired directly through the center of Breakfast Flock, ticking off two hundred twelve miles per hour, eyes closed, in a great roaring shriek of wind and feathers. The Gull of Fortune smiled upon him this once, and no one was killed. By the time he had pulled his beak straight up into the sky he was still scorching along at a hundred and sixty miles per hour. When he had slowed to twenty and stretched his wings again at last, the boat was a crumb on the sea, four thousand feet below.
