Message from a Hopi Elder

A piece of paper with this typed out on it was given to me at First Friday at the Crossroads this weekend.  I wanted to share it because I think the Native Americans are some of THE best people for Americans to get spiritual advice from AND because this is what I am personally trying to do/consider/build/create/contribute to.  Enjoy!

A HOPI ELDER SPEAKS

“You have been telling the people that this is the
Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the
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.”

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said,
“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
on to the shore.  They will feel they are being torn
apart and will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination.  The elders say we
must let go
of the shore, push off into the middle of
the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above
the water.  And I say, 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 world struggle from your attitude and you
vocabulary.  All that we do now must be done in a
sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
