flames of union

It is said about the passuk of Shema Yisrael that it represents the upper union. This union is described as the union between the first two letters of HaShem's name I realized today that שמע ישראל ה אלקינו ה אחד has the gematria 1118 which seems to me it can be broken down like so:
Two candles (נר x 2), man(איש), woman(אישה), and their union(1)

Through the union of a man and woman, the י and ה come together, leaving two fires (אש), to light the two candles (נר) of Shabbath, the perfect completion of the world.

This is the upper union.
