The good and the bad of Yin and Yang.

Since I can remember I have felt a connection to the Yin and Yang symbol. Two forms that come together to make one. Good and bad, light and dark, happy and sad, joy and challenges – however you look at it the ancient symbol of harmony reminds us that life is a balancing act and most fulfilling when we learn to embrace dualities.

The 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.

In simple terms;

The black area represents the bad.

The white area represents the good.

The black dot in the white area represents the bad in the good.

The white dot in the white area represents the good in the bad.

I feel like that the symbol is now so generic and overused that its true meaning and symbolism is often overlooked.

Next time to see the symbol take a minute to appreciate it's meaning and the perfection of the logo itself. I love symmetry – so to me it's the logo of perfection.

Instead of controlling the very order of the universe, try to give in and let it control you. Go with the rhythm. Live it. Embrace it.
