Paperweight

Imagine a little paperweight, the kind with fake snow in it. Everything is calm inside until we shake it up. Then the ‘snow’ falls. Yin goes here, yang goes there. Everything settles into place. We shake it up again, this time the yin falls somewhere else, the yang somewhere else and then once again it settles into calmness. Such is the world of the Tao.
