Those things we know as yin and yang are forever united. To see them as separate is to not be seeing the situation clearly. It is this union that bonds all things together; that keeps all things flowing and alive and makes sure that a balance is maintained. The more we understand about yin and yang and their modus operandi, the better chance we have to become one with all. We’ll have a clearer idea of how the great wonders work. The tides of the ocean flow in and out. This tells us that yin and yang both flow in and out. If you can perceive the patterns, you are alert to the flow of the world. You can find consistency in the non-consistent. If you have trouble seeing these patterns, you are lost. You are without a compass or the stars to guide you.
