This is a copy of “The Hopi Elders Speak” that my spiritual teacher shared with me many years ago. I have found it really helpful to read it over lately, and keep it handy because the guidance in it is so beautiful.
I am posting it here in the hopes that it will move you and inspire you to “let go of the shore” during this time transition in the Universe. Everything is changing, in ways I believe we can’t even fathom, and our ability to metaphorically let go of the shore means we will suffer less and be carried downstream mor easily.
Many teachers, like Abraham (www.Abraham-Hicks.com) have also used the downstream images to speak to us over the last few years. For me they have provided more clarity and comfort.
Here is the text from the Hopi.
Hopi Elders Speak
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.
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 we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
