"Balancing Masculine and Feminine" is a mandala honoring the opening
of the second chakra whose element is water.
Swadisthana is the home of our sexuality and unconscious emotional memories that
can raise such havoc in a relationship when this energy center is blocked. In this mandala,
dolphin frolic in the sea around a garden of spectacular lotus blossoms that are
symbolic of beauty and purity growing out of the mud. From a Tantric point
of view, even the most base emotions can be transformed into higher
consciousness through dedicated yoga practice.
If you are still looking for the love of your life, there may be hope in the
words of a wise Tantric master who once said, "To find your soul mate first
go within," meaning we do not have to search the world over to find our
beloved. In this tradition, when we have learned to balance and harmonize
our inner divine masculine (method) and feminine (wisdom) principles, then true
love will inevitably follow in the outer.
