"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 in to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and suffer greatly. Know that the river has its destination. The elders say we must 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 we do that, our spiritual growth comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves; banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred way and in celebration. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for."
A Hopi elder — from “Meditations from the Mat” (via katherinejuliamck)
"Worry pretends to be necessary, but serves no useful purpose."

"We live almost completely immersed in a socially constructed reality that so fully absorbs our energy and attention that virtually none remains to experience the wonder of our existence."
Duane Elgin (via alteringminds)
"You’re an ancient fragment of treasure. Don’t compromise, and dim your brilliance for someone who will devalue you out of pure ignorance. Find someone who acknowledges that you’re a rare cut from a primitive star."
