Honoring Yin and Yang

Symbol of Yin and Yang - Taiji

Symbol of Yin and Yang – Yang is the white area and Yin is the black area.

Yin and Yang combine to create all beings

Yin and Yang are interrelated, dependent upon one another, emerging and dissolving into one another. Yin and Yang are in a constant dance of definition and communion. Yin is quiet, stillness, being, and nighttime; while Yang is loud, moving, doing, and daytime. 

Yin and Yang Extremes

At the extremes, Yang is forceful and controlling, while Yin is feeble and resigned.
The path of self-awareness awakens us to the reality of our relative balance, proportion, and relationship of Yin and Yang within ourselves.

  • What is the inner expression of Yang? Are we forceful, controlling, or demanding of ourselves?
  • What is the inner expression of Yin? Do we give up too easily on our dreams or aspirations?

Are we guiding ourselves or shoving ourselves? Are we yielding to and flowing around obstacles, or have we given up? Are we so ashamed or afraid of these forces that we deny them within ourselves?

Claim your resources!

Yin and Yang are treasured resources that offer infinite resources beyond the confines of what family or society define as normal, acceptable, or “right.”  
We may have learned that only force and aggression define Yang. Or perhaps we learned that only obeying and subservience define Yin. Go inward to wonder more, listen more, and observe Nature more to realize the larger range of possible expressions of Yin and Yang for yourself.
