Sometimes, as the elders of the Hopi Nation of North American Indians are telling us here, you have to just let go and follow the ‘flow’ wherever it may lead…

Here is a river flowing very fast

It is so great and swift that there are those

who will be afraid, who will try

to hold on to the shore.

They are being torn apart and

will suffer greatly.


Know that the river has its destination

The elders say we must let go of the shore.

Push off into the middle of the river,

and keep our heads above water.


And I say see who is there with you

and celebrate.

At this time in history,

we are to take nothing personally,

least of all ourselves.

for the moment we do,

our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.


The time of the lone wolf is over.

Gather yourselves.

Banish the word struggle from your attitude

and vocabulary.


All that we do now must be done

in a sacred manner and in celebration.

For we are the ones we have been waiting for.
