There Is A River Flowing Now

Very fast.


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…

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
