To my fellow swimmers.
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 that the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
push off in to the middle of the river,
keep our eyes open and our heads above the 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 way 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.

from Hopi Indian Elders

I stumbled upon this today while looking for some other Indian lore I saved pertaining to how this time of year is when the spirit world is closest to our physical world. The date sited must be when I saved it.
