The Balanced Choreography of Energy wheel describes the most balanced way to use energy. Why do we as humans want to be balanced? Think about the ways we experience stress, pain, fatigue, anxiety, worry in our bodies, our minds, our emotions and within our spirit on a daily basis. We know when we don’t flow, and we inherently know when there is something off. We are walking out of balance and, therefore, can’t determine how to best choreograph the dance that is our life.
In the Sweet Medicine SunDance path, the Balanced Choreography of Energy is a wheel and movement around the circle of directions that help remind us what we naturally need to do to be in balance and harmony with all aspects of ourselves.
If we could master this balanced choreography of giving with the emotions, holding and transforming with the physical body, receiving with the mind, determining with spirit and open, heart-to-heart sexual communication, we would be walking around this planet in balance and harmony with all things.
In the East, we determined with the Spirit through passion and lust. The words “passion” and “lust” usually create controversy. Think of it this way … you have not had an apple in a long time, and you may never have an apple again. As you eat this apple, you totally focus your attention on it. With all of your senses, you taste the juice of it, you are aware of the texture and smell of it. You savor every morsel of this last apple.
This is eating an apple with passion and lust. Therefore, with everything we do, whether it is cleaning the floor, writing a paper, or making love, we should do it with the spirit of passion and lust as if it were the last moment of life. Savor each moment by determining with your intent and focus from your spirit.
