Yin and Yang

Being and non-being produce each other;
Difficult and easy complete each other;
Long and short contrast each other;
High and low distinguish each other;
Sound and voice harmonize each other;
Front and back follow each other;
In order to contract,
It is necessary first to expand.
In order to weaken,
It is necessary first to strengthen.
In order to destroy,
It is necessary first to promote.
In order to grasp,
It is necessary first to give.
To be bent is to become straight.
To be empty is to be full.
To be worn out is to be renewed.
To have little is to possess.

Written by Lao Zi, Taoist, 5th century BC.
Taoism is not a religion, Nor a philosophy.
It is a 'way of life'. Tao is the natural order of things.

Yin and Yang can be divided down to ten, and then further down to one hundred, to a thousand, to ten thousand, and to a number so great as defies calculation; yet in essence all these are but ONE.
