This message swept through skype rooms and facebook yesterday like a tidal wave of light. When I read the original post that I saw in one of the skype rooms I immediately asked Pete, who’d posted it, if he had a link to the original words. I began searching to “verify” that the post was “authentic” and truly from the Hopi Elders.It wasn’t until this morning when I read one link that was debunking this post as having not come from the Hopi Elders that I realized that it didn’t matter.When we read something that resonates with us and withIN us, does it really matter where the words came from? Do we really need to kNOW that these words were spoken or written by a Hopi Elder for them to have any validity? Does it matter if these words were written by a

We ARE the ONE people! We are all EQUAL! There is no greater than or lesser than. When we really realize this, then we can look beyond the titles and the divisions and the perceptions, and we can accept the words as BEing simply TRUTH.
Words, either spoken or written, resonate with us and withIN us or they do not. Our hearts are the most sensitive receptors of truth that we have. If you allow your heart to guide to you, you do not need to look to others to tell you what “truth” is, or what is real or not real, important or not important, valid or not valid.
It doesn’t matter who spoke the words below. All that matters is if they speak to YOU. If they DO, then it shouldn’t matter if they were written by a perceived spiritual leader or the woman down the street who runs the local vegetable shop. Some of the most incredibly beautiful words I have ever heard came from the hearts of people that many would shrug off as being just “normal”, and yet to my heart, they had far more “validity” and “truth” than the words of many of the perceived “Enlightened Leaders”.
This is a journey that we are all on. A few weeks ago I wrote about the Lace of One. We all walk different paths and those pathways intertwine, creating a beautiful pattern.
We are each alone responsible to our selves and for ourselves. You are on your journey, as I am on mine, and she is on hers and he is on his….. We lead only ourselves for only ourselves can tell us where we are going. Sometimes streams and pathways join together and then separate only to join up again later on. For me it truly IS about balance and flow. As I wind my way through the stream, I hold myself in balance so that I am not spun off course as other rivers and paths flow around me, yet in balance I can also flow with those streams.We are all, each and everyone of us, individuals strands. We are all equal and yet brilliantly different. Some times we need a reminder of that. A reminder that we are each on our own separate journey to Oneness and that our perception is solely our own. Can you kNOW where anothers path has been and where it is going? Can you kNOW what role they agreed to play in this masterpiece of separations and Oneness? Their path is theirs, your path is yours. Our paths criss-cross continuously and endlessly, and yet they are individual.We are the separate threads that create the beauty and brilliance of the intricate lace of ONE.
No one thread is more important than any other thread and each thread is part of the whole of ONE. Each Thread carries the connection to ONE just as electricity flows through the wires sending energy to the farthest corners of the mesh.Just as no one thread is more important than any other thread, no one thread has all the answers to what you seek. Following a “Guru” or a “Leader” or a “Group” will not give you all the truths or answers that you might be seeking, but following your heart WILL. If you do not resonate with what you are hearing, then follow where you heart leads you: without judgement, without expectations, without preconceived bias. When you open your heart to HEAR it will tell you where the message to YOU is.If you can SEE past the preconceived expectations and the judgements of others, you will learn to see with your HEART. If you can follow your own path without being hindered by the beliefs of others, you will always find your answers WITHIN.
For me, regardless of who wrote them, these words resonate like a booming drum within my BEing. I do not care if they were written by the greatest spiritually enlightened “Elder” or a homeless person sitting on the street or a fisherman on the wharf. The Beauty of these words shines in my heart like a blazing Sun.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know our garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
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 like they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off toward the middle of
keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
For the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
