On the occassion of the first new moon of the new year

New moons are the perfect time for new beginnings, for launching new creations into the world. And so it seems perfect to launch my blog in the energy of this first new moon of 2008.

My first post is not going to be a long one. I just want to say thanks for signing on to be on this wild ride with me. Things are falling apart faster than I had expected ... and things are also falling together faster than I had expected. Sometimes I have to listen carefully and look closely to see the 'falling together' part ... but when I do, I see grace and miracles manifesting in surprising ways all over the place.

This lovely message came to my inbox in the first week of 2008 and it seems to say what needs to be said~

From the Hopi Elders:

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 the time to speak your Truth,
Create your community,
Be good to each other,

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.


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 have been waiting for.

The Elders of the Hopi Nation
