In the Taoist doctrine, yin and yang can be used as parameters for our self-revision and thus the origin can be discussed. From the perspective of these states, Yin creates a place of emergence for Yang and Yang a place for Yin. The natural order and thus is the principle of nature, thus binding itself to the teachings of heaven and to the principle of the universe. The earthly process, the interplay of yin and yang, is the reality.
The use of the opposite pole
In order to achieve things by themselves, the orientation, the goal must be clearly defined. The answer to this is, naturally, on the contrary, by the understanding of the origin. This kind of perception leads to reflection and thus to an important change in the self.
Understand the natural order
An often wrong idea from the West is a passive attitude towards the way of things. Who does not participate in its realization, also no deeper understanding of its existence. It is natural that internal questions must be answered, explored by trial and error. If the reflection agrees with one’s own reality, a deeper understanding can only be gained through the implementation. Taoists are experimenting all their life to understand themselves better. The effect of self on the environment gives us understanding of the natural order.
Trapped in one’s own reality
Self-development is a constantly changing process. Self-realization is reflected in a living reality. Without this interplay, the principle of yin and yang will remain, and no further creative power can be produced. To be trapped in one’s own reality is like a heavy burden on the emotional state. The lack of devotion to one’s own realization comes to the fore and the meaningfulness of existence is questioned. This also undermines the decision-making power and is often the beginning of radical changes. Whoever is in this state is not in a balanced state, as Taoists prefer, but in danger of bringing the natural order into an imbalance.
Free will and self
Since there is no perfect “neutral” state, the continuous deliberate weighing of yin and yang is ultimately leading to a balance of vital importance for life-defining questions. There are moments in which we are closer to the balance and important decisions and mental blockages in our “gut feeling” (subconscious) decide. Ultimately, the Dao counts, from which everything creatively arises and evolves, in order ultimately to find itself again as a true self and to deliberately unite with the origin.
