"Creation does not take place
where there is a scattering and dissipation of energies.
Creation requires a gathering together and focusing
of your power within a circle of commitment -
like a seed, and egg, a womb or a marriage…
Consider wisely the ways in which you would
use your power and then around those ways
draw the sacred circle of commitment.
In the warm atmosphere of that circle, the power
of love builds like a storm above the wet summer
prairie until suddenly the circle can hold no more
and explodes in the conception of the new.
This fire is more powerful than any one of you."
White Buffalo Calf Woman, from Return of the Bird Tribes, by Ken Carey
