YIN and YANG

YinYang

The principle of Yin and Yang
is the foundation of the entire universe.

Yin Yang symbol shown above symbolizes how things work and represents the manifestation of every creation. It represents the source of Life and Death, Light and Darkness.

The outer circle of the symbol represents "Everything", while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, both of which cause everything to happen. This means that they cannot exist without each other.

The shape of each aspect of the symbol shows you the continual movement of these two energies. There are strongly connected and there is no separation.

Heaven and Earth

Heaven was created by the concentration of Yang = the force of light.

Earth was created by the concentration of Yin = the forces of darkness.

Yang stands for peace and serenity; Yin stands for confusion and turmoil.

Yang stands for destruction; Yin stands for conservation.

Yang brings about disintegration; Yin gives shape to things....

Yin and Yang; Which one is Better?

The answer to the above question is "Both" or "Neither one"....

It means that we need both aspects of Yin Yang in everything.

Concept of Yin Yang is far beyond 'Good' or 'Bad', 'Right' or 'Wrong'.

For example, in order for us to admire shining stars, the darkness must exist. To appreciate SUNNY DAYS, we must have RAINY DAYS.....



CHANGE is the ESSENCE of LAW

We are living in a world of constant change and these changes are ETERNAL.

Sun rises in the morning and sun sets in the evening.

Seasons change from the heat of summer to the cold of winter.

The activities of this endless movement of change is the Yin & Yang; the fundamental of the Universe.
