A Little Truth in These Troubled Times

It has been several weeks since I have made an entry to my blog.  To be honest, I was at a lose as to what to focus on as being the most important things we should focus our attention towards

Things are unfolding as predicted concerning the economy, and certainly we all are somewhat shocked and concerned about how the US legislative bodies are playing Russian roulette with the world’s economy. The level of ignorance and hubris has never been more manifest in those bodies in the history of the Union.

It is exactly these events that I have warned in previous articles that could take us to a state of open rebellion.  This should NOT occur.  We have a political process that has never failed the US in it’s history.  Winston Churchill put very well during the early years of World War Two when he said, “The Americans will always do the right thing, after they have tried everything else.”

It is that spirit which inspired me to do this entry, but more than that I had remembered the teachings of the Elders of the Hopi Nation that I have learned a few years back.  It is short but packed with wisdom of how to deal with TODAY.  Here it is in its entirety.  I thank the Elders for this gift and I am sure they will be happy that I share it with you and without further comment.  Enjoy.

“You have been telling people that this is the eleventh hour.
Now you must go back and tell 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 yourself.
And not look outside of yourself for a leader.
This could be a good time!
There is a river flowing very fast.
It is so great and fast that there are those who will be afraid.
They will hold on to the shore.
They will feel that they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say that 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 we are to take nothing personally,
least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do,
our spiritual growth 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 that we have been waiting for.”
