East divides human energies into three categories: Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.
Tamas is feminine quality and passive energy. Rajas is male quality and active energy. And Sattva is the perfect balance between these two: The quality of male and female together; the energy of active and passive together. A state of perfect balance. Energy Tamas and Rajas individually is incomplete. They are half energies. Energy Tamas gets balanced when it merges with the energies of Rajas and Rajas gets balanced when its merges with the energy of Tamas.
As they are half and incomplete they always search for its other half to become full and balanced. The search of a male energy will always be for feminine energy and the feminine is for male energy. And these half inner energies can never become full by searching for the other half in the outer world. The merger has to happen inside within. Unless some chemical transformation happens inside in one’s being and the merger of male and feminine energies happen there inside and one become whole man and whole woman inside together, yin and yang together, Tamas, Rajas together one will always remain desiring, hankering, searching, and one will never be at ease. They will always be lopsided with their visions and knowing.
Yes meditation makes it happen here his chemical transformation inside and the balancing of the Tamas and Rajas together. That is the goal of all meditations. Yes whole art of meditation is to make them happen simultaneously so that one is active and passive together, one is no more two cut parts, both half is made the circle is perfect, and in that perfection of the circle is Sattva: balance, tranquility, quietness, calmness, coolness .And in this state of utter balance utter calmness there always happen the right knowing
