is an excellent example of Nature’s blending, continuum and tendency towards balance. Yin-Yang is an Ancient Chinese dialectic term that overlaps with Nature’s concepts of duality, unity, cyclicity, and balance. Yin-yang describes how opposite forces are connected in the natural world, and I suggest can be in the world of people. Yin and yang are 2-sides of dualism that can represent various states of balance. Yin is imbalance by itself; yang is imbalance by itself. However, when yin and yang come together (yin-yang) we can have balance.The idea of balance is at the center of both Chinese science and philosophy. The Chinese view terms such as male/female, tail/heads, earth/sun, day/night, good/bad, and strong/weak as complementary terms. The yin’s (female passive Moon) opposite quality is called the yang (male active Sun). The Chinese I Ching (Chinese Book of Change) centers around a yin-yang balance of dualistic forces. It is the interaction of 2-energies (yin-yang) that can bring a balance. Balance is the blending of two opposite forces (eg. hot/cold = warm). I recommend for the challenges we encounter in life, that we aim for a balance between the yin and yang. The idea of yin and yang can be useful in the world of people for the many things that divide us on a personal, interpersonal, and cultural levels.
