“Yin and yang. The qualities that make us human. As though our lives play out on an immense balance scale – move one way, the scale tips to the left, but move the other, and it swings to the right.”
– Abramelin Keldor –
Y is for Yin- Yang
The Yin-yang is the ultimate symbol of duality. Feminine v masculine, light v dark, good v evil.
The symbol is a beautiful swirling image that flows into each other and is stamped with a dot from the opposite sides. The bubble seeps through is a reminder that in all good lurks some evil, and out of all evil can be found some good.
Light and dark is the cyclical representation that shows the impermanence of all things. Think seasons or a 24-hour day. Wherever you are reading this in the world, you are about to witness this in nature. Winter is either coming or going, meaning that the spring will begin to show the birth of a new light or autumn has put the plants to sleep. A new moon and a new world.
We shall search for the good as we emerge from the evil that has enveloped the world for the past few years.
The yin yang can also be a personal reminder that no matter where you are on your journey, we are capable of both sides of this cultural coin.
