San Juan River, Utah - photo by S. Auberle


There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so
great and swift that there are those that will be
afraid. They will try to hold onto 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 water. And I say, see who is
in there with you and celebrate. At this time in
history, we are to take nothing personal. Least
of all ourselves. For the moment that we do,
our spiritual growth and journey 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 sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for!
