We are the ones we have been waiting for!

I love this prayer and will write more about it over the next few days. but it speaks to me- every line- in quite profound ways. In my earlier post I talk about the need to be joyful and celebrate with my community that is in the water with me and the gifts that I have been given. The blessing of the 1500 visionaries is testimony beyond words. I am grateful! and I am challenged to be a better person and a person worthy of the gifts. I realize and promise to continue to celebrate with those of you in the water with me and most important, I realize that "we are indeed the ones we have been waiting for".
Much love,
Nadine

Let me share the words of this Hopi Indian Prayer with you:
We Are the Ones We've Been Waiting For
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. 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 being torn apart, and they 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. 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 of 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.

How profound that WE ARE THE ONES. We have read and known about the greatness of those 'who were' -- their vision, accomplishments and impact on the world.

WE ARE THE ONES forces us to bring ALL the faith, hope to a reality of no longer looking but producing. WE ARE THE ONES says if we don't, who will?

WE ARE THE ONES says launch out into the deep for we must NOW bear and bring forth the responsibility of the prayers prayed, the visions afore seen from our Elders (spiritual and physical).

Yes, we ARE the ones -- and I surrender unselfishly now to carry out my part.

Lord, Jesus, help us to see and then be all you created us to be for Your glory and the sake of mankind.

We ARE our brothers/sisters keepers!

The time is now and it's up to us. WE ARE THE ONES WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR.

From the Wizard of Oz

DOROTHY
Oh, will you help me? Can you help me?

GLINDA
You don't need to be helped any longer. You've always had the power to go back to Kansas.

DOROTHY
I have?

SCARECROW
Then why didn't you tell her before?

GLINDA
Because she wouldn't have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.

Just like Dorothy had to learn, we all have to learn that WE ARE THE ONES WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR...

Toni I love the example.

Confirmation is awesome. God has equipped us with everything we need. We are purposed beings conceived in thought at the dawn of existence.

WE ARE THE ONES...immediately brings to my remembrance words spoken by artists I have been blessed to work with -- the last lines of master griot artist Just Greg's poem, "There Is Something In The Water" -- "we are the change that we've been waiting for."

Then Zen Aura's words "I called above for help and you sent me myself."

It's not a question of if, where or what, it's a matter of is. WE ARE THE ONES calls for you to remember who you are in thought and action. As Patti LaBelle sings, "I've been looking around and you were here all the time." We are the ones that we've been searching for, we are the change that we've been praying for.

WE ARE THE ONES calls for an inward search and self inventory. Go inward and connect with God. Then, stand and move in your purpose.

"I pray and I pray until it hurts, then I get off my knees and do work." - Shyster aka Mrs. Betty's Son.

As we do this in thought and movement, we teach others to do the same and we become healthier as a community.

Dream like you never dreamed before, Believe like you never believed before, Pray like you never prayed before, then Move and Manifest like you never have before.

Psalms 91 said...

Oh my Lord! Nadine!!! The call was off the hook last night. I am just bubbling over. I jumped out of my bed this morning and gave praises where praises are due. I have emailed the call number to everyone I know. This is an opportunity of Purpose! Like so many others within our circle, my purpose is to help others as others have helped me along the way. I want to be able to make my 91 year old daddy and 89 year old mother comfortable in their last days. I want to leave my only child a legacy. I want to pamper prenatal women and I want to make sure that homeless people are homeless, cold and hungry no more. Those are my passions. I was in tears when the call ended last night. If I had products, I would have sold them all last night! Again...thank you Nadine and Cheryl for the vision. This journey is going to be so much more meaningful. I AM READY FOR THE JOURNEY...LET'S GO!!!!

Psalm 91, I am with you! I am so overwhelmed with joy and exhilaration. The product line is A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y exquisite. What excites me the most is that Soul Purpose created products in which I wholeheartedly believe. Some people push a product to merely make money. Albeit I plan to generate income as a Soul Purpose consultant, I moreover look forward to be a blessing to others via the illuminating products that will enhance their body, beauty, style and spirit. I can’t to sign the dotted line to make this mission official.

Peace and blessings,

La-Rhonda

Nadine, I first want to encourage and commend you in launching Soul Purpose! Your example teaches how to build business as you also provide for us the opportunity to do so! As I listen on the Replay Line to the launch call from last night--I was on the call as well as on the Webinar--I am again full of hope and faith about what God is doing through you to bless my and other lives. When I first heard you read the Hopi Indian poem on one of the weekly Visionary calls, I remember that the saying, "We are the ones we have been waiting for," reverberated in my spirit and connected with my own story of spiritual growth. God has confirmed in me that He equips those whom He has called. Nadine, with you trailblazing the way, we visionaries are developing and prospering in every aspect of our lives as we step out on faith to do what God has called us to do. Be encouraged -- YOU are the one YOU have been waiting for, and we humble ourselves as we follow you as you follow God. Be blessed, Nadine; be blessed fellow Soul Purpose Visionaries! la lucha continua, Connie W. (Los Angeles)
