Hope

Let The River Run

“There is a River flowing now very fast… Know the river has its destination…
The Elders say WE must let go of the Shore, push off toward the middle of the River, keep OUR eyes open, and our heads above the water… See who is there with YOU and CELEBRATE.”…..~ Hopi Elders

The lyrics of Carly Simon’s song “Let the River Run” are a gorgeous accompaniment to this Hopi prophecy and a source of profound encouragement at this time of so much upheaval and Shift in our country and around the world….. “Let the dreamers wake the nation.”
We most certainly live in “interesting times” as the old expression goes… Let us FLOW with the River of new paradigm possibility. Change is coming….
Let’s dream it awake, Together. So Much Love, DeAnne

“We’re coming to the edge,

running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
Let the river run,
let all the dreamers
wake the nation.
Come, the New Jerusalem.
Silver cities rise,
the morning lights
the streets that meet them,
and sirens call them on
with a song.
It’s asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.
We’re coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
We the great and small
stand on a star
and blaze a trail of desire
through the dark’ning dawn.
It’s asking for the taking.
Come run with me now,
the sky is the color of blue
you’ve never even seen
in the eyes of your lover.
Oh, my heart is aching.
We’re coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
It’s asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.
We’re coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.
Let the river run,
let all the dreamers
wake the nation.

Come, the New Jerusalem.”
