HOPI ELDER SPEAKS
"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."
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said,
"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 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. And I say, 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."

Thanks for the deeper look.
About a month ago I was invited to visit Hopiland for a weekend, and got a personal tour of the First Mesa village Walpi during the basket dance (wish I could find that photo link again).
Ever since then, my y2k anxiety (sort of paralyzed me in combination with other things) has been mostly cleared away, and I've been mostly just taking the actions we need in the final weeks. Sounds sort of like what the message was saying.

Worth repeating, this nails survival
