Yin-Yang symbol: what does it mean in feng shui
The eastern teachings of feng shui in Russia gained immense popularity among many people. Many have heard about the main symbol of this Chinese wisdom — the sign Yin and Yang. But about what he really means, not everyone thought.
The story of the appearance of the symbol Yin and Yang
In Chinese culture, the Yin-Yang symbol originated two and a half thousand years ago. It was born by the philosophy of Taoism. Ancient thinkers and wise men were able to know the world when they realized that everything in it is dual.
Everything is divided into bad and good, black and white, at the beginning and end, at the edge and in the middle. Everything complements each other, and even in the darkest there is a drop of blinding light. Absolutely also bright light carries a small fraction of pitch darkness.
According to Chinese culture, Yin and Yang can turn and flow into each other, that is, they are opposite to each other, but they are interrelated and inseparable. Source Yin and Yang — Tai Chi. This is the beginning of everything, the ideal entity that contains everything — the beginning of time and matter.
It was from Tai Chi that Yin and Yang came out, representing a bright, kind, masculine (Yang) and a dark, evil, feminine (Yin) beginning.
Yin-Yang in feng shui concept
In Feng Shui, this symbol means the positive and negative energies that permeate the entire space. The whole philosophy of this ancient teaching is based on duality.
The good is replaced by the bad, and the bad is replaced by the good, summer gives rise to winter and winter is summer, night goes by after day, and in daylight there is a bit of a black night. The Feng Shui philosophy tells us that Yin energy and Yang energy should not completely exclude each other — this can have irreparable consequences.
In places of rest, Yin energy should prevail, and in places where people gather, Yang dominates. This is very important, because Yin is stillness, and Yang is activity, strength and life. In office buildings, both energies are closely intertwined, and in residential houses, a bright beginning should be predominant.
Feng Shui and Yin-Yang are related concepts, but Feng Shui appeared much later, resulting in Confucianism and Taoism. Yin and Yang are unchanged — their characteristics are known and defined many centuries ago, and Feng Shui is constantly developing and improving, based on the ancient teachings on Yin and Yang.
