Been thinking of this symbol. It has some power. It's kind of like a koan. The mind tries to grasp it but it cannot. It goes on forever.

 

What's the endgame? Is it light or dark? How did it come to being? Where is it going? ❤️

In what would light shine, if not in darkness?

No how, for any "how" already is. The true how is no-how. Being just is. Spontaneiety is the true how. 

 

Lao Tsu says: "Dao fa ziran" ( 道法自然).

"The Dao (i.e. the way, the 'how') that is so of itself."

 

The power of the Yin Yang symbol is the intuitive understanding of "not-two-ness" it is trying to convey. It's a very simple symbol, and that is its power.

White and dark imply each other, they wouldn't exist without one another. That's why there are not only the two monads, but also the dots; there is a white dot in the black monade and a black dot in the white monade; black already contains the seed for white, and white already contains the seed for black. Explicitly it looks like they are opposed to each other, but underneath, secretly, implicitly, they are one.
