“Parvaz” means flying. In Parvaz Clinic, we want you to learn to fly as high as possible!
For most seagulls, life consist simply of eating and surviving. Flying is just a means of finding food. But Jonathan Livingston Seagull is different from his flock: for him, flying is life itself. In flying Jonathan realises that he can find fulfilment and a higher purpose in life, so, against the conventions of his society, he seeks to become the best at doing what he loves.
Jonathan shows us that if we follow our dreams, we can truly soar. This beautiful fable examples the importance of fulfilling our ambitions and making the most of our lives, even if those goals run against the norms of our flock.
From the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.
