The male–female principle is present in all creation. Sexual antagonism is sheer energy and showing everywhere in nature and the universe. That’s how it is depicted in the Yin-Yang symbol with its counterparts whirling around. If we acknowledge the male-female interaction as an exuberant dance of ultimate liveliness, as a „divine love play“ it makes it easier to free ourselves from feelings of guilt and doubt, from power games and manipulations that have overshadowed the interaction of men and women for so long.
Sexuality is an expression of vital energy and joy of life. To become a celebration of King and Queen, of God and Goddess again, sexuality needs to be freed from having been instrumentalized over a long period of time. No more need to take the partner hostage for your happiness. No more need for him or her to compensate for something lacking. Instead, make it the reunion of two complete entities celebrating unity.
The fact that a man also carries female aspects and a woman holds male aspects is shown in the Yin-Yang symbol with the white and black dots. Honouring one’s own gender as much as the partner’s gender, and consciously integrating the active presence of both aspects within will liberate the mind and allow to heal body and soul in a way that was missing.
The new consciousness will cut the ties to inculpatory feelings. Old inhibiting patterns and painful memories shall be overcome by consciously releasing them into pure love. Then physical togetherness becomes a Divine service – a celebration in honour of the male and the female, a wedding of Heaven and Earth and an affirmation of being incarnated on earth, in a body.
Sources of healing and insight open up when partners align their loving attention to the Divine origin of carnal union. Being a gate to transcendence, sexuality reveals itself as a mighty “tool” to experience union with the Divine, and to feel the physical body as the home of love and light.
Happy partners are not only giving presents to each other but have a positive effect on their surroundings, too. Even someone who does not have a partner or is not physically active can honour the male-female principle and benefit from the harmonizing vibration, for example with a Shiva-Shakti fire ritual.
