Hopi Elders Speak

When the Clock Strikes MidnightFrom the Elders at Old Oraibi
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.

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 they 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.
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 your 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.”

–The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation

Someone sent this to me yesterday, I really like what it says, so I thought you might like to read it too! I have also read that there is some doubt about this coming from the Hopi, since their message is more dire … but even if someone else has written it, it sounds true to me, in an encouraging sort of way. So push off into the middle of the river with me!

  1. A post that inspires and motivates. My favorite is, “It is time to speak your Truth.
    Create your community.
    Be good to each other.
    And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”
    We need to be doers, to initiate a positive change, to be a mirror of goodness, to be an instrument of hope for others, to reflect love and peace in our lives and not with words alone.
    Great post my friend. Best wishes to you and your family.
