Co-Creation with Creator – Prayer during Evacuation
I am where you are
You are where I am
I am at the center of your love
You are at the center of my love
This creation is absolutely beautiful
You invite me to co-create in this beauty
I choose to see myself as integral to
the great unfolding of this great mystery
I am engaged in co-creation with you where
there is harmony and where there is chaos
When challenging things happen
I do not see these as a punishment
When blessings happen
I do not see these as a reward
I learn to grow from both,
gaining wisdom each day from experience
My physical body, my brain and consciousness,
and my heart and my field reside in your field
You have entrusted me with awakening
to my sacred responsibility
May I use what I have been given well,
translating gifts given to me into gifts for all
My own sense of peace extends beyond me
and contributes to the peace of the world
I practice acceptance of what is,
coupled with appropriate action
This love is real, this love is here right now,
I co-create this love with you, with all of my heart
Love is at the center of all of my choices
and I share this love with all beings
I lift up my hands and voice in praise
for the co-creative capacity you have given
I bow my head in thanks
that you continue to show us the way

Evacuation and Contributing with Love
We have evacuated for a third time from our home we recently moved into. What an incredible opportunity to practice deeply what I know to do – practice Intentional Creativity, serve my community through working on our training materials, rest and pray.
I am taking time off of the computer and phone unless it is creative writing or editing. This is the prayer forming over the past 48 hours (above). We are fine, we are good actually. We have each other, our kitties and that is our focus. In past evacuations, this year and others, I have spent a fair amount of time checking for updates, getting notices etc… I am not doing that this time. I have handed the phone and internet access over to my husband Jonathan and the Musea team, including to send and share this message with you. And I have handed my heart space over to the collaborative energy of the Creator.
I am working on editing my books and being in the field of love I know is real. This does not mean I am bypassing the tragedy or not thinking of those in need. It means I know my own panic is not contributing to the healing and transition to peace. Rather, my love contributes more than my pain. So, it is with love that I write to you today.
Most humans are safely evacuated, and so my prayers are really with the first responders, and the creatures and trees. It will be what it will be. Tears fall for many things, including Napa’s beloved resort, Meadowwood. A cherished spot of great beauty not far from our house that has burned to the ground. An incredible range of emotions swirl.
Today I honor the transition of the Art Matriarch Sue Hoya Sellars into the cosmos 6 years ago.
True profound love to you along the red thread,
“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” ~ Tagore
