Women’s theme

Women’s theme
What is the relationship between what is described above and a woman? Why am I writing about consciousness referring specifically to a woman? Because a lot depends on a woman. A woman has a huge influence on a man, she has great power, but, unfortunately, either does not know about this power, or does not know how to use this power. Therefore, our world is ruled by selfish men who often use female power (read – “energy”) in their interests. Remember any production, and pay attention to who usually directs the process and who is the performer of all the dirty work? On female energy, including on unrealized sexual energy, a lot of things have been created in this world. And most often women do not even suspect this. It often happens that only for the fleeting attention to herself on the part of a man can a woman be capable of tremendous self-sacrifice. But this self-sacrifice often turns into a kind of energy manipulation – a man came, gave a little attention to a woman, received everything that she was capable of from her, and disappeared for a long time … he went to spend the powers received from her on his personal affairs.

About Tantra and family relationships
In our universe, everything is harmonious, everything works according to certain laws. In the Vedas, ancient sources of knowledge, laws were left for all cases of human life – the rules of politics, ethics, economics, family relationships, in general, the rules of the health of each individual person and the health of society as a whole.

Now I want to touch a little on the relationship of personal family relationships and the happiness of our society as a whole, because one is interconnected with the other. One does not exist without the other, because our whole society consists of men and women. If society follows the general rules of behavior, if there is a culture of relationships, then society is happy. Otherwise, big problems begin in society.

According to the Vedas, it is the man’s responsibility to provide the woman with material goods, and the woman’s responsibility is to housekeeping and raise children. If you look at these rules a little deeper, you can see that such a family should be harmonious and happy (subject to consciousness, understanding of their responsibilities, both husband and wife). Because in reality, if a man provides a woman with material goods, then for this he receives strength (energy) from a woman. Therefore, it is very important what kind of consciousness a woman has, who nourishes the energy of her husband. A loving and caring woman will be a source of joy and prosperity for her husband; she will bring up healthy and good children.

In the ancient tantric tradition, it is believed that a person receives consciousness from his father, and energy from his mother (in Buddhists this is called white and red boddhichitta – “boddhi” is “divine”, “chitta” is “consciousness”). There are also Universal Father – Divine Consciousness and Universal Mother – Divine Energy. The Universal Father is God – creator, creator. But any creation of the creator will not exist without vitality, energy. Giving life, energy is a function of the Divine Mother. But if energy, for whatever reason, gets out of the control of consciousness, then this leads to destruction and catastrophe. One of the laws of the universe is that – above, then below. This means that these universal principles also apply to man. If a person is unconscious, then he does not understand the meaning of his actions, he simply wastes his energy, and this can only lead to destruction and catastrophe, both personal and planetary.
