Yin Yang

If there is only white, we would never know black.
Life will be so flat if there are only men or there are only women.
Truth exists beside lie.
Guts can also came from fears.
A success will be meaningless if we never face failure.
When there are two identical magnetic poles, they will only reject each other.


  In an ancient Chinese concept, there is one is most popular : Yin-Yang. This is a concept of how things work, and simbolized by


The outer circle represents "everything", while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, called "yin" (black) and "yang" (white), which cause everything to happen. They are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other. While "yin" would be dark, passive, downward, cold, contracting, and weak, "yang" would be bright, active, upward, hot, expanding, and strong.
  The Yin-Yang symbol is rounded, so as to gives a sense of continual movement and interaction of the two energies. Although yin and yang are opposites, they are complementary. At the same time, they are interchangeable. Yin turns into yang and yang turns into to yin, causing new yin-yang situation to establish. The better we are in finding the equilibrium, the more effective we can be.
  Everything in this world is dualism. Yin and yang are two sides of dualism, just like the tail and the head of a coin. If the tail is yin, then the head is yang. They exist alongside one another. The head cannot exist without the tail, and the tail cannot exist without the head. Life is based on balance of the dualism. Balance is not always equal for every side of dualism, neither a median point of range.
  Based on yin-yang philosophy, balance is may also known as harmony. Mostly, balance is hard to reach because perfection is GOD's authority. We often saw some condition of yin domination or yang domination. Yin domination could lead to depretion, hopeless, desperation, and weakness. While yang domination could lead into arogancy, selfishness, and exhaustion. Our challenge in life is to balance the yin and yang in things we do and reach the harmony.

So far I only know of Yin and Yang few. Apparently so profound content and meaning of Yin Yang. What is expected of all people is harmony. Harmony will make all things beautiful, orderly, good to hear and be seen, and comfortable.

I do not understand why so good can be said led to the problem? Being too good in my opinion, is OK, as far as I can manage and not to harm myself.
