YIN AND YANG.
Has anyone ever told you that you are the YIN to my YANG? Yin and Yang means the balance between good and bad. The symbol for Yin and Yang is called the Taijitu. The Taijitu is comprised of a black swirling “tear drop” shape with a small white dot and a white swirling “tear drop” shape with a small black dot, both culminating into a circle. Yin is represented by the black segment and small white dot, while Yang is depicted by the white segment and small black dot. The small dots are representative of the idea that every force contains a “seed” of its opposing force.
The Taijitu depicts the delicate balance of opposing forces, each with a small segment of the opposing force within it.
