Hopi Nation is one of the oldest cultures on
this continent. Yet, these ancient people
hold an extraordinarily modern and instructive perspective on the
currents encircling all of us:
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.
—The Elders Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation
We believe that both an artistic and
an analytical orientation are
necessary for future success during this era of profound change and
uncertainty. This means that the person,
the group, the corporation, the community, and/or the society that
studies the world of actual experience and manifests insights with an
aesthetic integrity will survive and thrive in the world that is
unfolding. They will see the structure
generating the future, and the way they live in the present will
by what they know and sense about the future.
possessing an artistic
attitude along with tough-mindedness -- the ability to
face facts and difficulties with strength and determination -- have the mental agility that the future requires. A
ambiguity, an appreciation for beauty, a distinctive way of seeing
a willingness to adopt what “works” wherever it comes from characterize
of the Future's vision.
the Future's areas of expertise and domains of experience span
Yet, everything here is integrated by the interpenetration of the
imaginative and the practical in the service of thinking forward to
positive, life affirming future.
