From your link:
“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 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 water
This is exactly something that happened to me in a dream a couple of months ago. It is amazing for me to see these words!
In my dream I was walking along and suddenly there was a shallow stream of water coming from behind me. The odd thing is that it was coming up from
behind where I had just been walking and it wasn't there before. I walked a little faster, but soon the stream of water caught up to me and lapped at
my feet. I took off my shoes to greet it and it felt good. It was a surprise, but not a surprise that I was not willing to accommodate.
As I splashed along the water began to rise. It began to disturb me because it was now up to my waist and impeded my travel because I had to exert a
certain amount of resistance to move forward and keep my balance. I never looked back, but kept going forward.
The temperature of the water was comfortable and the flow was almost still as it was rising. Soon the water was up to my neck. At first, and for only
a moment, I felt a bit frightened. Mainly because suddenly I realized that the flow was competing against my own power. It was becoming a force
greater than my own. I did not know where it would take me. Would I lose the power to determine my own direction? Well, the water had
from behind me, and it was
flowing in the direction I was already traveling. I allowed myself to go limp and stop resisting the push.
It was wonderful. I was buoyant. The water lifted me; I was weightless. No feeling of the occasional rock against my foot, no ache of endless walking
in my legs, no strain on my back. The tiredness was gone and I was completely at peace and comfort being carried away in the warm waters. The waters
traveled more swiftly, faster than I could have walked. I made no effort to swim or tread water and my head stayed above the water without any effort.
I don't know where the water was taking me because not knowing where I was headed suddenly scared me and I woke up. The dream disturbed me quite a
bit afterward, but in the end I realized that whatever it meant it was to assure me not to have fear because I have traveled a great deal of this
journey under my own strength, but there will be a force to come which will take me farther and do it faster.
