Yin And Yang - Poem by Lawrence CH Hiun

Under heaven everyone knows that
The existence of beauty
Depend on the existence of ugliness.
Everyone knows the capacity of kindness
Depend on the existence of the unkind.

Existence and nothingness are mutually born,
Difficult and easy complement each other,
Long and short rest upon each other,
Sound, song and music harmonize each other,
Before and after follow one another.

Yin are darkness, cold, rest, inward and downward direction
Yang are brightness, heat, activity, upward and outward direction.
Yin are stillness, receptivity and femaleness
Yang are aggressiveness, expansion and maleness.
(adaptation from Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu)
