In the story of creation from the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the Human World was the fourth and final to be created on what we know as Grandmother Earth.
The Human World are determiners of energy. Among all the creatures, it is only the humans who were created with free will, an agency of choice and self determination. These two features distinguish us from other Worlds.
We determine our own reality and with this comes authority, responsibility and power. It is our choice whether we exercise these in pain and destruction … or in beauty and re-creation.
