It’s funny how one conversation about a tattoo will get me interested enough to make a post about it. But this subject is actually one I am interested in. This goes back to one of my all time favorite comic books called the Master of Kung Fu. It was a 70’s era kung fu comic about a character called Shang-Chi. Now Shang-Chi’s name means “the rising and advancing of the spirit” and he was in a constant battle between his good side (himself) and his bad side (his dad) which leads to the whole Yin and Yang thing which this post is about.

Ying and Yang

If you don’t know what I’m talking about here is a good definition (and a picture above of what the symbol looks like):

Yin and Yang are symbolized by the sun and moon. There are two opposing forces active in the universe. Yin exists in Yang and Yang exists in Yin. This is the the changing combination of negative and positive, dark and light, cold and hot which keeps the world spinning and creates Chi – the giving life force.

Now I’ve always been fascinated by this. To me what this means is that there is a good and bad in everything. The trick is to figure out how to balance the one over the other. But not without forgetting that there is that balance of both in you. And everyone needs balance in their lives. You just got to find it where you can. I guess you can add this to my list of things that make sense to me.
