What is Yin Yang?
Yin Yang Philosophy
Yin Yang is perhaps the most known concept used within Taoism, as a process of harmonization ensuring a constant dynamic balance of all things. Taoism is both a Chinese philosophy and a religion. It emphasizes doing what is natural and going with the flow, in accordance to the Tao, a cosmic force which flows through all things and binds and releases them.
The way of following the Tao and living life at peace with one self, others and the world of constant changes is presented in the Tao-Te-Ching book. It says that instead of fighting against life and others one can yield to circumstances and let the things which are not really important go. Instead of insisting one is right all the time, one can empty one's self of that kind of pride and be open to learn from other people. Instead of clinging to old belief patterns and hanging into the past, one can bend to new ideas and new ways of living.
The Taoism embodies the Yin Yang principles and Yin Yang beliefs. Life is supposed to be lived in balance, as the symbol of the Yin and the Yang expresses.
Yin Yang are two halves that together complete wholeness. It is also the starting point for change. When something is a whole is complete and unchanging. So when you split them in two, it upsets the equilibrium and both are chasing after each other as they seek a new balance with each other. Yin Yang then is the concept of duality forming a whole and examples of it we encounter everyday: Night (Yin) and day (Yang), female (Yin) and male (Yang).
Life is about creating balance, not suppressing your good and not suppressing your bad, one cannot exist without the other so embrace them equally.
Use the Yin Yang bracelets as a constant reminder that balance comes from harmony and create a world of it.
