(part of Living Balanced in an Unbalanced World)
Yin Yang [
Many of us are familiar with the symbol of yin and yang traditionally representative of the energies of dark and light, female and male. Symbolically these energies are balanced equally creating harmony within the unit. In reality however, very few people live in balance with their light and dark, feminine and masculine energies. The purpose of the Balanced Energy Series is to teach you to acknowledge the positive aspects of both, identify imbalances, and to achieve and maintain harmonious balanced yin and yang energies.
Yin Yang are not opposing forces (dualities), but complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, this is how balance is maintained. According to Taoist philosophy, Yin and Yang are dependent opposing forces that flow in a natural cycle always seeking balance. Though they are opposing, they are not in opposition to one another. They are merely two aspects of a single reality, each containing a seed of the other.¹
The past decades in the West have seen a societal imbalance of masculine and feminine energies. Most of us westerners have grown up indoctrinated with the false impressions that to be masculine is to be strong and to be feminine is to be weak. In truth, when balance is achieved between the two energies, an individual is at their most powerful. Balanced Energy allows a person to act and react out of the best of both energies.
Balance is Control and Control is Power.
To achieve Balanced Energy we will practice discovering the energies and bringing them to light. As we bring the energies to light we will embrace the power in each. Finally we will learn to bring balance, to be mindful and to maintain Balanced Energy.
