The ecstasy inherent in intercourse is ultimately a letting go. Our ego dissolves and gets carried away into the great energy of Love. This is why we oftentimes cry out "O' my God" in the ecstasy of the moment. We also may say that we totally lost any sense of ourselves. In that ecstasy, we realize a deep unity in which the duality of "I and Thou" dissolve.

Likewise, if we go into ecstasy in smelling the flowers growing on the side of the road, then we embrace and become one with that flowery scent.

Making love is the Way, i.e., the Tao, the intercourse of yin and yang.

Mirroring this, a Navaho chants sings (I'm paraphrasing):

The birds, the bees, I become it

The clouds, the mountains, I become it

The stars in space, I become it.

In a noun sense, we are the all manifesting as a part. In a verb sense, the part becomes a participant thus he/she is said to be participates in the whole. To be a participant is to be a noun uniting with the verb.

Making love in this sense is a taking in of the scents of the flowers and their physical beauty. The flowers participate in us and we participate in the flowers. In the same sense that a man enters a woman during intercourse, then the flowery scent enters our nostrils and entices or sparks a deep sense of connectedness and joy.

The scent is mothered by the flower's essence and our partaking in that is the father to the ecstasy.

God/Goddess is everywhere!

This intercourse of this and that is simply the Way in Taoist terms. The "Course" is the Way and the "Inter" is the Internal.

To foster a new world, it is inward that we need to go.

The power is within us. The potentials within are infinite.
