Yin & Yang
This has always been asked by many people and also so many are becoming aware of themselves either being more Yin or more Yang.The Military officials use a lot of Yang energy. Yang is power. it can be use of WILL, a lot of over powering- ruling strength. the ability to do something, the capacity to produce, to run, to execute, to bring forth, start & terminate is predominantly Yang. The dancers, musicians exhibit Yin energy in every soulful rendition. It is developed by cultivating Awareness. Yin energy is blissful and relaxing. Smile brings one person to a state of Yin. Meditation leads the mind to calm down and Yin energy predominates the personality at that moment.Yin & Yang are both present in the person but they change & can predominate each other from time to time.
It varies with work, personality, situation & interactions. Yin state is less frequent in the present day as most people are too busy with stress & tension, a racing mind, chasing the dreams, emotions & psychological issues. Yang is the factor which is moving the masses today. But every-time there are calamities Natural or Man-made; destructive Yang play their wrath and their energies are exhausted after which the Yin predominates in silence, peace, healing & balance. So Life is all about the balance of the Yin & the Yang. Any of the one in excess make the person or the process imbalanced. Yin if it is the experience of peace then Yang is the process of achieving peace. When we do Yoga, the Aasana or exercise is Yang in appearance (pose) while the effect is Yin. When a healer heals, he follows certain steps in transference of healing energy to his patient which is Yang while the healing in itself is Yin. Yin is essential for Sensitivity but Yang is needed for Sensibility. Yang motivates the doer to cultivate Yin. Yin is achieved through the process using Yang. Again we see that Yin & Yang cannot be separated as one brings the other while the former is inside the latter.
During deep meditation the flow of the spiritual force, vitality & kundalini are Yang while effect of it is Yin – bliss, sweetness, oneness, etc.
One cannot be complete with only a single quality. These two qualities are the essence of life & living. Martial Arts follow these teachings and all practices & techniques are to cultivate both Yang & Yin in the practitioner. When both are Balanced it makes the practitioner a Master. Miraculous Healing can happen when the Yin & Yang of the person along with every affected organ and all Chakras & system are at equilibrium.
“No two of the products of creation are alike. From this we know that although the number of things is infinite, at bottom there is nothing without yin or yang [which differentiate them]. From this we know also that the transformations and changes in the universe are due to these two fundamental forces.”
Chang Tsai (poet, philosopher)
So Yang is as needed as Yin.
