Life as a tantric practitioner means living life fully and consciously, rather than withdrawing from life’s experiences. This means interacting with the energy of life, shakti, in all her manifestations and aspects. Shakti can of course sometimes be daunting and intimidating, particularly in areas of life we are less familiar or confident in, so it can be helpful to look at other areas of our life for inspiration.
It is said that you can tell what kind of lover someone is by looking at how they eat!
From this example, we can realise that the relationship we have with shakti is the same on all levels, whether it is the relationship we have with our sexual energy, with our lover, or with life in general. We can learn a lot about ourselves and others by examining behaviour in this way.
