hopi elders speak
Hopi Elders Speak
by The Elders, Hopi Nation, Oraibi, Arizona
We have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour
Now we must go back and tell the people this is The Hour
And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
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, and push off and into the river, keep our eyes open, and our head 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.
Banish the word "struggle" from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that you do now must be done in a sacred manner
And in celebration.
"We are the ones we have been waiting for...."
