In the last 2000 years or so, women have been considered to be the weaker sex in much of the so-called civilized world. In actual fact, women have simply forgotten how to access their own power, the Divine feminine. In Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching, he says:
“The valley spirit never dies
It is named the mysterious female
And the doorway of the mysterious female
Is the base from which heaven and earth spring
It is there within us all the while
Draw upon it as you will
It never runs dry.”
The quality of Yin is fluid, cool, yielding and expansive, like water. If you have ever seen a torrential flood, a huge waterfall, or a turbulent ocean, the power of yin can be easily understood. Yes, she can be calm and yielding, or can equally be a raging and furious Tsunami. Water is contradictory and unpredictable, and so is woman. In spite of her unpredictability and illogical way of being, she is naturally attuned to the heart and her basic default setting is love. She lives for love. If a woman forgets that her power is rooted in love, she is destined for a life of misery. Universal energy is made manifest in our physical world through the vibration of love. Woman is the custodian of this vital force. Her intuitive nature acts as a beacon, calling her continuously to come back home to the heart.
It is also very important for women to realize that she is the birth giver. Even if a woman has not physically given birth to a child, she is still a mother in every fibre of her being. Whatever is born into this world has come through the conduit of woman. If the world we live in is a mess, it simply means that women have been unconscious of their role as mother of all of life.
When a woman is in touch with her unbounded ecstasy, her infinite capacity for love and her clairvoyant potential, she will be ripe and ready to give birth to a world where life overflows with joy, dance, song, love and beauty. I see such a world on the horizon. It will happen as soon as a critical mass of women wake up to the power of the divine feminine.
Tantra honours the heart as the link between our animal and divine nature. Through the practice of Tantra meditations, either alone or with her lover, a woman will find many keys for fulfilment on all levels, sexually, in love and relating, and spiritually. The richness of a women’s potential is astonishing as it begins opening up. She finds herself to be as vast and limitless as the sky. In essence, she is the cosmic womb, the mother of the universe. This immense gift also carries with it great responsibility. As we wake up to our responsibility within this creation, we will plant flowers and trees instead of bombs.

The Divine Masculine is a timely subject for 2012, as this is the year when the old world transmutes into a new world, according to the famous Maya predictions. Bring it on! The old world has been dominated primarily by an imbalanced masculine, which shows itself in the number of wars and general raping of planetary resources. This has happened because the masculine has been divorced from the feminine for a few thousand years, and by so doing has gone into a fevered testosterone fueled orgy of competition and destruction. I am by no means saying,…
Do you find it easy to forgive people who have hurt or abused you in some way? I didn’t until I started to understand that I was hurting myself more by maintaining a tight knot of resentment and anger towards the people who had wronged me. As I learned to love myself, and make loving myself more important than hating the other person, a profound shift happened within me. I felt more loving not only towards myself, but towards everyone and all situations in my life. This shift in perspective produced a feeling state of relaxation, ease, and trust that all was right with my world,..
