"SHAKTI is energy, power, movement, change, nature.
SHIVA is pure consciousness – the unchanging, unlimited and unswayable observer.
Shiva and Shakti are manifestations of the all-in-one divine consciousness - different sides of the same coin. They are often depicted as being one half of the same image; one side female and one side male.
Through the splitting of the primordial principle at the advent of creation the duality within our lives came into being, together with a strong force that is constantly striving to re-unite with the other part.
Only when Shiva and Shakti combine can action, movement and creation arise. Until energy is impregnated with consciousness it is ignorant, disordered, aimless and “blind”. Energy alone can produce nothing; consciousness bestows upon it content, form and direction. Conversely, consciousness without energy is dormant power, sleeping energy, and on its own is unable to be the cause of anything. Shakti without Shiva is unable to act, and vice-versa, Shiva without Shakti is incapable of creating anything."
