Shiva is not the destroyer of world, he is the destroyer of the impurity. He is the purifier of the world. He is the origin of Consciousness. Even the worst kind of energies gets purified with his grace. That's the reason he is worshipped by all being whether Gods or Demons.
There has been a huge tradition of pouring water/ milk on the Shivling. We all do, but no one exactly knows why? There has been a lot of criticism also that it is a waste of resources. Most of the original Hindu traditions have some solid scientific reason behind.
1) Where ever Shivling is established and worshipped, it cleans the whole atmosphere. The bad energy in the atmosphere travels through the Shivling and gets cleaned. The energy is hot.
When the energy becomes dirty, it becomes more hot. When these hot energies are continuously passing through the Shivling, it becomes hot, so we need to continuously keep pouring the water/ milk to keep it cool. When the Shivling is cool, it is more effective doing its work of purification. This gives way to bringing more light of consciousness to micro (individual) and macro (earth) levels.
We can understand with an simple example, if our head is hot how would we think. Our brain will not work properly, and it will over the period give way to the diseases. It is only with a cool head we can take proper decisions.
2) Karma: All our karma are stored in Swadhishistan Chakra, which is the water element chakra. Any bad karma a person does effects the water element of the body. Water absorbs the bad energy of that karma. In turn, it is the water element which has the strongest influence on the person's life, health, wealth, spirituality etc. It is of prime importance that water element needs to be cleaned
When water is poured on Shivling, which has the purification light of Shiva, the water element inside our body gets purified resulting in upliftment of mind, body and soul.
