To be bisexual is to be attracted to the spirit of a person. Similar to individuals who are two-spirited, a combination of masculine and feminine energy in one body drawing close all that is attracted to male and female, people who are bisexual also carry with them dual energy attracting and being attracted to male and female energy. Most often, scientist study external energies in our environment and universe and not as much time on the study of internal energy. Universes exist within each of us. Our chakras are our energy centers within our bodies. A person may take on different types of energies, such as: feminine energy male, masculine energy male, feminine energy female, masculine energy female-all of which are on a spectrum. Female energy represents the moon, harmony, life, creation, healing, openness, love, understanding, compassion, insight, intuition, wisdom, forgiveness, sensuality, valuing others. Where as, masculine energy represents the sun or fire, practicality, bravery, self-confidence, egoism, benevolence, strength of self. A two-spirited or bisexual person is a well balanced combination of all these traits listed. A cosmic dance of vibrations. Created special to be the balancing act, the seeker of truth, taking a birds-eye view of life, able to see both sides.
Often time in society humans are pressured to conform to societal norms especially when it comes to gender roles and expected behaviors and attitudes to go along with these ascribed roles. The reality we are currently living in on this earthly plane is designed for the purpose of spread and multiplication, in this reality that proliferation is the product of dualities. The dualities are the polar energies that exist as a way to put each being into a category. The first category We created to control and take over the land was "man" and "animal", next was "man" and "woman". In modern times however we have categories such as race, class, religion, etc. We have been ascribing to these contrasts for thousands of years distracting us from the source energy- God energy, that is neither male or female. When we connect to source energy we are able to connect to each other on a deeper level. When we are connected to source energy we are also connected to both our "feminine side" and "masculine side" as a way to better understand our existence.
I do not choose to be in one energy at one time. I am both at all times. I am attracted to spirits not mechanics. I find that often time my sexuality makes people uncomfortable. While some (those steeped in a patriarchal worldview) say things like "you must be confused", unable to fathom how someone is able to love free from conditions, I am not here for anyone's entertainment nor am I the sole representative of the queer community. Many people are conform to social norms and feel real or perceived pressure to maintain a polarized world. In my existing outside of this polarity I seek to unfold the budding lotus of my heart. I desire to journey deep inside myself, the love of Spirit inside me. I want to touch my lover's spiritual cords. When I love you, it means I want you to come with me to a "new world"-a place inside of you where you are me and I am you. Our energy is one vibration- the sound of God, "Ohm".
