Humans are the fourth-born children of Grandmother Earth and sit in the east. Again, we are two-legged animals in the Center of the receiving world of the animals, but we can evolve and become balanced human beings as determiners, taking responsibility for our place in the web of life. Human beings are determiners, or directors, because we have choice and free will; we can destroy or nurture our environment.
This wheel tends to create controversy because it distinguishes between red, black, white, yellow, and mixed races, called metis. Furthermore, in these modern times, unique cultural and racial distinctions are blurring as technology shrinks the globe, and the world community continues to become more homogenous. This Human World Wheel teaches the traits and gifts of humans as determiners of energy and honors the unique beauty of the gifts and give-away of each race of people that the soul seeks in its evolution and chooses as part of the mold for our spirit personalities.
The Twisted Hairs Elders say that each of us is a spiritual metis, as we have reincarnated into each race many times. (They say that since each spirit personality, guided by the cycles within Sacred Law, reincarnates a minimum of 144 times to evolve to the point of resurrection and enlightenment, our spirit personality has incarnated into each race a minimum of thirty-six times.) Furthermore, we all have red blood, black pupils, white bones, and yellow marrow in our bones (colors of the four directions of the Medicine Wheel), and we carry the gifts and give-aways of each of the colors within our cellular memory. All we need to do is access that memory to realize we are metis; we are all brothers and sisters in the larger family.
Among all the creatures, it is only the humans who were created with free will, an agency of choice and self-determination. It is also only the humans who have the genitalia for experiencing full body orgasm at will. These two features distinguish us from the other Worlds. We determine our own reality and with this comes authority, responsibility, and power. It is our choice whether we exercise these in beauty and re-creation or in pain and destruction.
