Via George Por, some Hopi wisdom that might be fitting at this moment:
"You have been telling the 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 the leader.
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 they 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.
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 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 a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for."
--The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation"

We are the ones we´ve been waiting for. Yup, exactly. Good moment for this piece, Ming, thanks.  

4 Nov 2004 @ 14:44 by helô @ : Hopi advice

'are we?' yes, we're using to be yet!
but... as warriors, shamans,workers and whatever we name ourselvs we're learning with them(?) and everything, don't we?indeed we're knowing beyond, don't we?
It's nearly amasing! The time really has come. Next step is ringing the bells.
We already know (almost) all the Game.Let's start the next or even better, the next is already started. And we are in. Tanks, Ming! for the article. I'm deeply toutched.

...Supertramp & their whiney voices.
I like the the Hopi language that, if I remember rightly, has no reference to a possessive self?  

4 Nov 2004 @ 15:20 by swanny : A Metaphor
I suspect they were speaking metaphorically
or prohetically I would interpret it to mean
"it might be wise to move to higher ground"
Given with Global warming and
Arctic ice melts I would say their prophecy
speaks for itself or is reasonable.

... exactly right !
