The ubiquitous yin-yang symbol holds its roots in Taoism/Daoism, a Chinese religion and philosophy. The yin, the dark swirl, is associated with shadows, femininity, and the trough of a wave; the yang, the light swirl, represents brightness, passion and growth. John Bellaimey explains why we all contain the spirit of yin and of yang — and how we can achieve a balance of both in our lives.

  1. Dao think everything has two good & bad .fire & water cold & hot.they are opposite and aslo unite.Dao think everything is compounded from yin and yang.keep yin and yang balance, then it will be harmony.
    A little like Materialist Dialectics. Maybe this is why theories of Marx attract China (I don't want to talk about politics here). “CRISIS” in chinese is the word“危机”. “危”is crisis and danger. But"机"is chance and opportunity. “CRISIS” in chinese is composed of danger and opportunity. Crisis is dangerous, but if we take action or behavior in right way then it will turn into chance and opportunity. Yin and Yang are opposite and change to each other and they are United.

  2. Yin & Yang are deeply related with Chinese life from the root including nutritional eating for good health. This is the secret of long living for Chinese seniors.

  3. SIMPLE…Yin & Yang or Yang & Yin is The Balance of the Human Life …God The Creator create human in His Image Perfect in our IMperfect ways…Distort it and you will be sick or DIE!!! keep The Balance and The Faith to Finish The RACE!!!

  4. The blueprints for ones universal Mindset and Thoughts. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and understanding of Balance.
