Each of the worlds have a wheel of their own. Each of the directions dance with the Human World in different ways.
In the South are the red humans. These are the peoples who are most closely aligned with the heart, the fluidity of emotions. They teach us the way of one-heartedness, having a heart connection to all forms of Life in a beauty way. It is to these sisters and brothers that we owe these Sweet Medicine SunDance teachings.
In the West are the black humans. These brothers and sisters teach us about physical mastery and power, the body’s agility, rhythm, strength, and endurance.
In the North are the white humans, the people of the mind, of modern technology who have greatly advanced the evolution of civilization. However, they have significantly forgotten to do so in balance and harmony.
In the East are the yellow humans. These sisters and brothers teach us about the spirit.
In the Center are the Métis rainbow humans. These are all those who realize that no matter what color the skin, no matter what race or cultural heritage, we all have red blood, black pupils in our eyes, white bones, and yellow marrow in our bones. They teach us the ways of the Five Huaquas: health, happiness, humor, hope, and harmony. These are the gifts of being truly human. In order for us as humans to achieve these qualities of human-ness
- GIVE WITH TENDERNESS – having as our intent to gather together in our heart space
- HOLD & TRANSFORM WITH INTIMACY – by caring for one another in our physical bodies
- RECEIVE WITH CARING – by teaching one another within respect and honor
- DETERMINE WITH PASSION AND LUST – by sharing with one another our fire, our inspiration
- CATALYZE WITH OPEN HEART-TO-HEART COMMUNICATION – by being intimate with one another
Remember we said wherever you have four, you also have five. So with the four Worlds is the fifth World: In the center of all Worlds is the World of Spirit, the catalyzer of all energy.
All forms of life have “spirit” (manitou): they have life force energy, which we call the catalyst, pulsing through their form.
