We are the Ones We've Been Waiting For

Awakin Feature

You have been telling 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 your leader.

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “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 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.

And I say, 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 come 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.

--Hopi Elders' Prophecy, June 8, 2000

    "We are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves" this resonates with me. It refers tothe over-proportioned value we place on ourselves, and this speaker encourages us to reduce the magnitude of that value, and share it with the community in which we find ourselves. He speaks of allowing the river to take us along... away from our safe shores;and I think those safe familiar shores are selfish thoughts, insular thinking, personal grudges, individual wants and needs. "Know the river has its destination"

Scary. We dont even get weather or FEMA alerts where I live tgat are not via cell phones with an exception for weekly tests that have been moved from midweek midday where poeple can be reminded of how it works and no these tests are run at 1:00 and completely silent. We are seperated from our churches and envouraged to keep away from each other (to pass ideas that are not filtered, monitored or prihibited - in case we start talking to each other about this situation and actually doing something about it. But instead we are isolated which makes fear worse and panic makes people behave irrationality. B Gates may be getting rich and distribuiting his wealth to those who promote his aganda but we blindly dontlift a finger to regulate ir even question any of this. Instead they blame conservatives who are almost as bad in the lack of motivation to di something. Bith sides would rather soend another 4years getting nothing done but complaining while billionaires and China grab the big lollipop away from us[Hide Full Comment]

    Hello,

    Thisis such a moving and meaningful prophecy. Thank you so much for sharing.

    I would like to share this with my podcast community of teachers (about 10k), and would like to ask if that's okay? Moreover, would you know a Hopi Elder who would be willing to come on as a guest and discuss this prophecy with me? it would be an honor to do so, and would do this more justice than me just reading it myself.

    Please let me know your thoughts on this action.

    Warmest regards, Julia Rose

    The essence of the Divine Creator spreads outwardly as do roots that penetrate the soil. It's light is than cast forward to nourish It's love to all that has been created in it's entirety. As pure as water the message of love and giving unconditionally generates the growth of abundance to all in which it is consumed. For the everlasting cycle continues to create more life with the impressions of love through it's creations. All in which are sacred to it's divine relationship to all. Know that in each of the Divine creations consciousness creates the spark of life to flow for eternity. In conjunction of all walks of life created through the Divine are interweaved together as a spider creates it's web. All connected yet precisely spread outwardly is it's intentions to give more. May this message of love connect us all for that the link between everything is connected to one the Divine.

I've had dreams but these are to consist and the drums of warning get louder. My family thinks I'm nuts but I'm not. I know what I've seen and it was either a memory or warning

    Just this week I have become aware of the "rushing river" washing around me. Voices of strife and worry, anger and ego, fear and aggression were pointed out to me yesterday. They are far greater than I had been aware of.

    I realize I am in the "boat". I must hold out my hand to all who are in the water. Some choose to stay in the water rather than join me. Some join together and release their ego.

    My job is to hold out my hand to everyone regardless of who they are or what they have (or have not) said and done. This is where I must release my own ego. I will try to do my best.

    Intuition always peeks out and sends us messages that are life changing.  However, our presence of mind isn't always open to its message that would require us to reflect and change, so we tend to ignore it at the moment.  This goes back and forth throughout our lives, I call them tides.  The next big "tide" is even deeper, stronger and life changing in its message in other forms that we can't ignore and we are forced to make decisions from.  This can immobilize us out of fear of the unknown.  It is in our sitting in it, with it and working around it, with humility, the  stillness and patience in waiting for its answer while maintaining peace of mind and presence too that we are living in the the ONE that is our innate wisdom.  We then know what life really is and really isn't.

    One more comment about this.  The passage reminds me of something I read last night from Eknath Easwaran's book "Take Your Time":

    "In high school, I had read a story by H.G. Wells about a child who wanders down an unfamiliar street and spots a door in a plain white masonry wall.  He opens it and discovers a garden where everything is welcoming and full of peace--a place where he belongs.  The next day he tries to go back, but the door has disappeared.

    Three or four times after that, as he grows into manhood and climbs the ladder of success, he turns a corner and happens to see the door again, just as he remembers it.  He hesitates, but always he has something urgent to attend to and lets the moment go.  The years pass and he attains fame and fortune, but he is haunted by regret that he never ventured through his door again.

    When I read that story again in the middle of my life, I realized it applied to me.  One detail that hadn't meant much when I was younger jumped out at me: every time that fellow sees his door in the wall again and decides to pass it by, he first looks at his watch.  He can't take the time to stop to discover what he has always longed for.

    In fact, the Buddha says, our constant hurrying is often a kind of anesthesia.  It's not convenient to stop to ask big questions; it can even feel threatening.  So long as we keep moving, we can put it off."
