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. 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.

I recall posting this some time back, was on someone elses post so have lost it, however rereading it is right on point for me right now.

"Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary."

These words ring so true for how my life can be, still coping with the whole BiPolar thing, I have many moments of struggle in my mind, which then of course manifest into my day. I am just now dragging myself through another low period, what I have found though is these periods are lessening in length and strength.

I know somehow all of this has a reason and is definetly part of my growth, self belief is gaining strength as I come through each period.

Thanks again Chris, I will print it out this time to remind me "I am the one I have been waiting for" :)

"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."  Things are definitely reving up.  Ian, you spoke of polarity and I can't help seeing that increasing everywhere these days.  I feel it within myself at times to where it's almost more than I can take.  I came home late last night and my street was blocked off, cop cars and fire engines everywhere.  Someone was holed up in a nearby building and had fired thirteen rounds at the police.  These signs of desperately holding to the shore are all around.  I feel myself gripping too tightly at times, and I try to tell myself to let go, yet situations and circumstances have a funny way of getting right to the heart of my fears lately, as if continually casting me into the fire, brutally testing my resolve while at the same time lovingly trying to burn off my hard edges, the hard edges I know all too well are still there.  My mother recently had gall bladder surgery and is now drifting aimlessly in a sea of depression, listlessness, lack of appetite and forgetfulness, even falling at times, thanks to the revolving coctail of accepted medicine.  They make her dizzy.  She feels fear.  I try to get through to her but she can't hear.  To make it worse she lives two states away so it's rare I even see her.  No one likes to hear their mother can't take care of herself.  It's hard not to take that personally, I must be there for her yet remember it is her journey.  I offer her my love, and my body if she needs it, and I do my best to smile and push away from the shore.

That line you referenced about struggle is the primary reason I posted this...  What a perfect reminder from the wise...

and Francis, that other line about trying to hold on to the shore is the other line that really caught my eye...

and couldn't agree more Todd, "man is it ever" (the hour)...

the other lines that really ring my chimes,

"see who is in there with you and celebrate"

that line rocks the house!!!

the other one, "this could be a good time"

what a perfect cosmic reminder of what is always true...

and here's a quote I found that seems fitting in this thread,

“Let go immediately of any unresolved energies or emotions which are binding you to Earth, whether it is the sin of attachment to material possessions or the continual lustful thoughts of passion in your mind. Release your resentments, your fears, your need to feed your ego. Forgive your neighbor, your friends, and even the bums in your community. Judge nothing as less than Divine, perfect in its own unique way. Accept everything equally as beautiful and good. Trust that life force/source to sustain you with all that you need now and the days to come. All is God. Awaken to the glory of that joy as creation is spun from the illusion of separation into the Oneness of creation for all to witness that participate.”

  but then I remembered this song......http://youtu.be/iD67wlWhC6U     this is perfect !!!!! he wrote this as a kid, a couple of years later he was at woodstock.and you might want to check out this one too,operation spirit......http://youtu.be/hMUr0NRAn1A      These kids were so intense back then,,they couldn't even mike the drummer in a club,,he beat every word of the song,,,from the days of the moshpit !!!  Let it gooooooooo !......one of the best shows I ever saw....

  And Francis, i am lucky that my mom remarried, and is doing quite well at 75. We were very close when I was back in high school. she had been awakened, studying astrology and channeling with some people from the Cayce institute. she used to feed me so much information. i would write term papers in my alternative high school , cross referencing carlo castaneda with ruth montgomery !,ha ! stuff like that! I was so lucky she was there back then. When she remarried, she lost interest in all that, and I held it against him for a while, as he is just a nice, ordinary, but stuck,,,guy..I let that go many years back,and am just happy now, that she has this refuge. We lost our connection, but she has a safe place to ride things out...they just finished renovating a place to live their days out,so to speak, and are moving in next week. i called her yesterday, and told her to stock her new shelves with a month's worth of stuff as soon as she got in....she questioned me about it, so I talked with her about it,,but just a little, as she hasn't been receptive to new info for several years now....but she agreed to do it....So I guess we are all still there for each other in some capacity along the way. It might not seem that we are getting through, but we do on some level....Peace to you !

 And Chris, I am glad your in the river too brother !!! might be seeing you soon ! If the airports aren't shut down when I try to come back ! ha !

   When is this hopi quote from ? I was just wondering when it was spoken. When I got to hang with the Incan elders, back in 97,98, they were planting 4 golden staffs on 4 points of the planet . I believe this was the beginning of this last cycle on the mayan calendar. They believed they were connected to the Hopi, so one of the staffs was planted during a week long gig in canyon de chelly,Arizona. One of the most amazing weeks of my life, no doubt. i camped in the next tent from them for 10 days. the Hopi, and Navajo elders were present at times during the week too. So much happened there,I could write about it for hours. so I was just wondering if that was spoken around the time of the "beginning of the end ", or more recently...

    I have to say I am a little torn here right now, being told to "let go" of everything. I have just found this amazing person who I seem to be aligned with so perfectly, and actually feel a little guilty wanting to be with her so bad. It is a first for me, having never even considered being married. and she is not aware, consciously anyways, of things at hand. but I sense her quest for change is coming from the same place, and still hope we can ride this out together. I feel like the timing might just be perfect, if we get through the communication barrier, as we are so aligned, I believe we can accomplish great things together, if nothing else, generating a lot of love around us to help others stay calm.....T

As for struggling with particular notions/forms/degrees of "letting go", I suggest getting imaginative/creative with the term and maybe think of it as letting go of your worries about the possibility that you are not adequately "letting go" of your strong natural desire to be with someone you find yourself clicking with.... LOL

maybe go running down the street together holding hands and singing,

I'm letting go in the rain

I'm letting go in the rain

What a wonderful feeling

I'm hap hap happy again....

this discussion makes me think back on the Buddhist understanding about the connection between attachment & suffering
