The Philosophy of Yin and Yang

The Philosophy of Yin and Yang

Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.

This week, we’re thinking about Yin and Yang. Author C. JoyBell C. said it beautifully,

The dance between darkness and light will always remain - the stars and the moon will always need the darkness to be seen, the darkness will but not be worth having without the moon and the stars.

Yin and Yang literally mean shadow and light, respectively. Rooted in Taoism, the Yin and Yang symbol is a guideline to live in a fluid state of harmony with nature. Energy (yang) needs recovery (yin). Speaking (yang) needs listening (yin). Being aware of the type of energy you have helps your understanding of what other activities you must bring in to restore the relative balance of harmonious life.

We'd love to hear from you!

What does the Yin and Yang symbol mean to you? How could it change the way you approach your life?

Jesal
