As westerners, we’re used to thinking in black and white terms. We learned from the movies that the good guy wears the white hat and the bad guy wears black. But eastern philosophy imparts both good and bad within each of us.

Yin yang theory teaches that we are dependent opposites that must be in balance. We are in continual change, mutable in a constant state of flux.  At times mostly light, at others mostly dark but always with a little of both. Notice in the symbol there is part of yin in yang and part of yang in yin.
