The Great River

Posted on Posted in Words

We 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 the 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 onto 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, and push off into the
river, keep our eyes open, and our head above the water.

See who is in there 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 you do now
must be done in a sacred manner… and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for…

  1. wow, that’s so amazing.. i’ve had dreams about fast moving rivers, very wide. . also a dream about a path in front of me that goes into deep water. . and a man/angel i’m not sure told me to walk the path into the water. . and i said that i was hold a bowl in my arms and i didn’t want it to get wet and he told me to put it down and take the path – i protested that it was deep and suddenly i was in up to my waist. . i didn’t know how the dream ended. . . i’ve been confused in my spirit since then, probably because i’m not going into the deep and i’m holding back. . the other day i suddenly had these words come into my mind “The path is right in front of you.” To me that seemed like a reminder to get going and wade out, in faith.

  2. Wow…. thanks for sharing that Kat… God’s clearly showing you something, even if you’re not quite sure what it means yet! I pray that you will find greater clarity soon. I just had this picture of me throwing myself into a flowing river, not afraid of where it would take me or how it would end up, but just completely abandoned to God, to his power, to his river, allowing him to direct me without fear.

    Indeed, the path is right in front of me.

  3. Hi Emma
    As far as I know the source of the ‘quote’ on Neal’s blog is myself
    p s I can’t read very well the faint letters in your comments page

  4. New domain noted Dave… of ever-changing domain fame! This is a quote I found on Holly’s blog… Read into it what you will I suppose. For me, its about abandonment to God… giving him everything, throwing all of me into his streams. And about action! NOW is the time to act, we cant sit around waiting for others to do it, its my responsibility… I am the one I’ve been waiting for.
    Whats it mean to you?
