Man and woman represent positive and negative #energies. On a mental level they represent time and space. Ordinarily, these two forces stand at opposite poles. During sexual interaction, however, they move out of their position of polarity, towards the center. When they come together at the nucleus or central point, an explosion occurs and matter becomes manifest. This is the basic theme of #tantric-initiation.
The natural event that takes place between man and woman is considered as the explosion of the energy center. In every speck of life, it is the #union between the positive and negative poles that is responsible for #creation. At the same time, union between positive and negative poles is also responsible for #enlightenment, and the experience which takes place at the time of union is a glimpse of the higher experience.
This subject has been thoroughly discussed in all the old scriptures of tantra. Actually, the energy waves that are created during the mutual union are not as important as the process of directing that energy to the higher center. Everybody knows how this energy is to be created, but nobody knows how to direct it to the higher centers.
In fact, very few people have a full and positive understanding of this natural event which almost everybody in this world experiences. If the conjugal experience, which is generally very transitory, could be extended for a period of time, then the experience of enlightenment would take place.
The elements that are brought together in this process of union are known as Shiva and Shakti. Shiva represents #purusha and Shakti represents #prakriti or energy.
Shakti, in different forms, is present in all creation. Both material and spiritual energy are known as Shakti. When the energy moves outwardly, it is material energy, and when it is directed upwards it is spiritual energy. Therefore, when the union between man and woman is practiced in the correct way, it has a very positive influence on the development of spiritual awareness.
