In Chinese thought the two great opposite but complementary forces at work in the cosmos. Yin is the female, cold, dark, passive power, yang represents masculinity, light, and warmth. Earth, rain, soft, evil, black, small, even (numbers), are yin; heaven, sunshine, hard, good, white, large, and odd are yang.
The interplay of the two forces makes up chi, or the material principle governing the universe. Their balance is essential to harmony and health. , is an early attempt at a cosmology, based on the opposition of yin and yang and a doctrine of Five Elements (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth), operating in ordered cycles in the production of nature and history.
The world is a mixture of yin and yang. When it comes to the five elements earth, water, and wood are clearly to be associated with yin. Fire and metal are associated with yang.
The outer circle represents everything, while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of yin and yang, which causes everything to happen. These cannot exist without the other and so life is not black and white rather it is full of the intermixing of these elements creating the rainbow of colors. There is flow and a continuation of movement as if it is taking you into infinity with no end.
Our life balance is in direct correlation to of the flow of the five elements and the yin/yang of our system. This includes our emotions, feelings and perceptions. This in turn affects our health and natural way of being. Yin/Yang is the root and source of life and death while yang is peace, serenity and element of light; yin is confusion, turmoil and element of darkness. Understanding how these plays into our daily lives helps to bring the soul and spirit into wholeness.
