“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.”Mark Twain
What’s some good practical wisdom for how to do this?
The Leadership themed book, Optimize Your Strengths, by James Brook and Dr. Paul Brewerton was a Finalist in the 2016 International Book awards. It closely echos the themes of the following startlingly prescient, inspiring adventure tale.
They say “Choose the path of possibility. The path of limitation is unproductive and drains your energy. The path of possibility gives a sense of power and enhances energy.”
We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For
A local Artist and Wise-Woman named Barbara Odil introduced me to this powerful retelling of a Hopi Prophecy years ago, during a time of personal initiation.
A 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 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 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 for 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.”
With much love and transformational grit,
