    Honoring Yin and Yang

    Honoring Yin and Yang

    Yin and Yang combine to create all beings

    Tao Ta Ching 1

    Tao Ta Ching 1

    Clear light of Yang
    The clear light of Yang is easily known in contrast to the manifested.
    The five senses discern the manifested.How is it that we know and trust our clear unmanifested potential?
    Tao Te Ching
    One
    The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.The name that can be named is not the eternal name.The nameless is the beginning of Heaven and Earth.The named is the mother of the ten thousand things.
    Ever desireless, one can see the mystery.Ever desiring, one sees the manifestations.These two spring from the same source but differ in name;this appears as darkness.Darkness within darkness.The gate to all mystery.
    -Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
