Chinese Yin Yang By: Carissa Fournia
Yin is the dark element, It is passive, feminine, negative, downward-seeking & corresponds to night.
Yang is the bright element, It is active, masculine, positive, upward-seeking & corresponds to daytime
Yin is often symbolized by water and earth.
Yang is symbolized by wind and fire.
Yin (dark) and Yang (light) are descriptions of complementary opposites as well as absolutes.
All forces in nature can be seen as existing in yin or yang states and the two produce constant movement/force of the universe.
In Chinese and other Eastern thought, yin and yang are the two opposing and complementary forces that make up all phenomena of life.
Both proceed from the Supreme Ultimate and together they represent the process of the universe and all that is in it.
The concept of the yin-yang is very ancient, and its precise origins are unknown. In the third century BCE, it formed the basis for an entire school of cosmology, the Yin Yang School.
According to the Encyclopedia Britannica , "The significance of yin-yang through the centuries has permeated every aspect of Chinese thought, influencing astrology, divination, medicine, art, and government."
I really enjoyed the Chinese culture, and the belief of the Yin and Yang.
The balance of the two is really interesting, and very fun to learn about.
