The mystics and poets have always found ways to write about true presence and sacramental symbol, yet the subtle experience of Divinity eludes the best use of language. It’s hard to grasp what true presence is because it is not a place, but a dimension of existence.
Tantra is connection, presence and conscious awareness and relating to ones self and to another. The practice is all about being present to the totality of life as an ecstatic and vibrating manifestation of Shiva-Shakti consciousness pulsing with the expansive vitality of creation. It is about awakening to our highest identity as part of the Divine; it teaches us to shift our self-perception from the limited isolated self to the unlimited highest Self flowing within, around and from us.
Shiva and Shakti are personifications of the great powers of Yoga which reflect the higher realities and energies that are behind, and beyond, all universal forces. They are the manifestations of divine consciousness where the ‘whole’ is made up of two opposed but complementary forces. Like yin and yang, they represent the duality behind all energies in the universe. These energies are present in our internal worlds as they are in the external cosmos.
