Message from the Hopi Elders


MESSAGE FROM THE HOPI ELDERS

You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell people that THIS is the hour.

And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

This could be a good time!
There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold onto the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The Elders say we must let go of the shore.
Push off into the river,
keep our eyes open,
and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history,
we are to take nothing personally,
least of all ourselves.
For the moment that we do,
our spiritual growth and journey
comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done
in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the Ones we have been waiting for.

With all the astrological tuggings now, I'm feeling very disoriented. Thanks for the reminder to stop struggling, go with the flow, and celebrate! I believe we are the ones we have been waiting for!

Thank you Gail.........I also feel so very strange these days. I love this piece, which I read a long time ago, it seems already. I think understanding and honoring our community as "Relations" is most important............
