In the Yin (Darkness) there is Yang (Light); In the Yang (Light) there is Yin (Darkness)
Yin: Freedom, Creativity, Pulling (Taking), Interior (Self)
Yang: Order, Logic, Pushing (Giving), Exterior (The Whole)
If there were Yin without Yang there would be Complete Chaos...
If there were Yang without Yin there would be Complete Slavery...
Yin is Self, but it still has that dot of Yang showing that it is still part of The Whole...
Yang is The Whole, but it still has that dot of Yin showing that there is still Individuality (Self)...
The wisdom in The Yin-Yang Symbol is this...
When The World is ruled by Yang; those who believe in a Male Deity, or those who worship The Sun, or those who follow Light and Order, there is
Interior Chaos (Yin). With Order (Light) all around, The Individual does not learn to make his own choices, so he experiences inner chaos and
When The World is ruled by Yin, those who believe in Freedom and follow Expression and Creativity, The Individual is forced to limit himself - find
his own way.
When there is Freedom, the individual learns Order and Self Discipline, with complete freedom, the individual limits itself to form his own
When there is Order, the individual follows Rules and looses himself until the point where they lost the Inner Light and depend on The Outer so-called
'Light' for "The Way".
We shouldn't be trying to enlighten The World, we should be trying to enlighten The Self, only when this happen will people truly find freedom to be a
virtue and respect the free-will of others, and become independent.
Until then, people will keep clinging to other beings whether they be other people, leaders, gurus, spirits, or gods...
When people learn to love Self, each individual will bring a bright light.
When people love The World and follow its way from its rulers and leaders, each individual loses the light within, becomes confused and began to
depend another for the light.
Here's a summary if that was too long...
The Yin is Darkness and it represents Freedom and Creativity.
The Yang is Light and it represent Order and Logic.
Too much Yin is Chaos, and too much Yang is Slavery.
Look at the little dots of The Yin-Yang symbol. This represents The Individual. When there is Yin (Freedom), The Individual learns self-discipline
from the freedom and becomes an Expressive Individual. When there is Yang, the individual becomes confused looking for leaders ("Light) to control
them and give them order.
The way of Yin is best because there is freedom, like how it naturally is supposed to be, but the individual learns about himself and learns
Self-Discipline and that becomes the order, understanding self and being self, and understand other individuals and letting them be themselves.
