Letting go

This is the greatest quote I've ever heard.

It's from the Hopi elders.


         Letting Go

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 will suffer greatly.

Know this: the river has a destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push out into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above water.

At this time of history, we are to take nothing "personally". Least of all, ourselves. The moment we do that our spiritual growth and our journey comes to an end.

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.

We are the ones we've been waiting for!
