Yin & Yang Misconception

Many of us see yin and yang as being opposites (good and bad, hot and cold, happy and sad, etc), but the truth is that yin and yang are actually complements of one another. 

 

If you think about it, hot and cold are simply the extremes of the full experience of what we call temperature. And if we didn’t have one, we wouldn’t have the other. They both play an essential role. How else would we create warm, if we didn’t have a little bit of both?

 

So just a little food for thought. Our world seems to be very divisive right now. We have become either boiling hot or freezing cold. Let’s try to remember the beauty of the warmth that we once experienced and never forget that it takes both, a little bit of hot and a little bit of cold to make it happen.
