"We are the ones we have been waiting for."

Jane Tatum sends me a wonderful card designed by Augusta Lucas-Andreae, who is the art therapist at Kaiser Hospice in Oakland and is an inspiring woman. On the card is a Hopi Elders prophesy. You may have seen the words before.   I think it is important to re-visit these words of gathering again and again.  They have meaning for me.   I have often struggled with my hermit side, and I still see solitude as a great gift, and I resonate to these words, "The time of the lone wolf is over."  "For we are the ones we have been waiting for."   And so it is!  We are here, Now and Now and Now!

          Here is a river flowing now very fast.

                    It is so great and swift,

          that there are those who will be afraid,

          who will try to hold on to the shore.

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 into the middle of the river,

                 and keep our heads above 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 if 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 vocabulary.

                   All that we do now must be done

                in a sacred manner and in celebration.

          For we are the ones we have been waiting for.
