English term or phrase: turn of the inner wheel
No estoy segura de si esta expresión es una frase hecha. El contexto es el siguiente:

Of course it is commendable to eat a more balanced diet, to use natural remedies, to do balancing bodywork, and to work with harmonizing psychological techniques, but again, these treatments still focus on the outer -on the effects, not the cause. Its is an interesting turn of the inner wheel that when we take charge of our mental focus and direct it to the Highest Good, our mental statebecomes one of peace and harmony.

un interesante giro de nuestra rueda interior
Explanation:
Este concepto de "rueda interior" remite a una noción propia del pensamiento oriental, "to turn the wheel of the Law" (hacer girar la rueda del Dharma o de la Ley), "wheel-turning kings" (reyes que hacen girar la rueda del Dharma o de la Ley), etc.

Me parece que el autor habla de internalizar esta búsqueda de la Ley externa y hacer girar esa rueda dentro de uno mismo, o sea, encontrar en uno mismo la autodisciplina de la superación o los principios universales.

Yo lo traduciría así. Con respecto a "turn the wheel of the Law or Dharma", podés buscar en internet y encontrarás miles de referencias. Es un concepto primordial del pensamiento oriental.
