Cosmology
 

Consciousness is the substratum of all that exists. The manifest universe is an outpouring from Consciousness. Basic to this outpouring is a division between Stasis/Consciousness (Parashiva)--that which never changes--and Shakti/creative energy--that which is continuously changing. However, this is an apparent distinction as the two are as inseparable as moon and moonbeam. They are heralded by the sacred syllable AUM. 

Manifestation is the game which is played for desire and contentment. This is played through five principles as represented by Nataraja (dancing Shiva): creation, preservation and transformation entwined with the cloaking and unveiling powers of revelation and concealment. 

Shakti, as Kundalini, hides at the base of the spine in the first chakra (spinning wheel of energy). As a human evolves by aligning with higher truths, Shakti expands awareness and rises up the spine to the crown--eventually reuniting with Parashiva (Stasis/consciousness). This is ultimate liberation at a human and individual level, a rare occurrence indeed.
