Check To See If You Maintain A Good Yin-Yang Balance Or Not

Check To See If You Maintain A Good Yin-Yang Balance Or Not

You will notice when you observe the world around you the positive and negative forces. The Yin and Yang represent the struggle of everyday life and the larger picture of society as well. Within the Yin we can see a circle of Yang. And within the Yang we see one of Yin. The calm of the Yin swirls about the fury of Yang. Light and dark, the balance of both is essential. The laws of the universe state for every action there are separate but equal and opposite reactions. To understand these forces you must imagine the purity of white and dominance of black. The small center of dark Yang in the pure Yin keeps it centered, and balanced.

Positive and Negative

The positives and negatives of life sometimes become unbalanced. If you have more negative feelings you feel dark and angry. If you have positive things in your life and are pure you feel sad and lonely. This is because you see so much negative around you that it overwhelms you. You would do well to remember your negative center, because if you do you can thrive in these situations and become more balanced.

If you are negative and have too much Yin in your life you can find yourself lashing out because you’re angry or restless. Remember that there is something good inside you, and you will have a balance that will stabilize you. Stability and focus are the result of the harmony of Yin and Yang. And eventually we all balance out. One symbol that will forever be remembered as one of peace will always show us that inside we strive for balance, the world, and our universe will balance out the negative and positive energies contained within its circle.

    How does Yin-Yang balance effect you?

    To truly have a centered and purposeful life you have to have some positiveness. If your life is nothing but negativity you will fail at everything you do, and you will feel terrible while doing it. When darkness comes does it not displace the light? If you have too much positive in your life then you are ignoring the darkness beneath the surface. Somewhere in the deep expanses of your unconscious mind lie a hidden self that will wither if not balanced.

      Finding your center

      In the Yin-Yang duality you can find balance by find your center. Your inner Yang or inner Yin is there for you to examine and meditate on, use this force to learn about the negative ones in your life so that you can control them. To find this perfect balance is not impossible, though you may think it is improbable. Our world has grown so much and diverged enough from a balanced way of life that it is hard to find the inner you, and balancing your life.

      Too much work and no play can make you dull. Too much food and no fasting can make you fat. Pleasure and pain are often confused and associated, yet they are not alike. In fact, they are the Yin-Yang of your sex life. Whether it is emotional or physical pain you endure, it shouldn’t outweigh the pleasure you have for a relationship. If you can find a balance of small things in you daily life then you might be able to tackle the tough one like relationships and your career. Although if you look at it another way, you might be one half of the Yin-Yang equation in your relationship.

      Which one of us is the evil one?

      As I said, no one thing is completely Yin or Yang. They are opposing forces or ideas, but they flow and change as night and day do. The lines of the separate parts swirl together and intertwine to create a system of opposing forces. And this is what you want for your life — balance. Too much of one thing is never good especially if you’re consuming it. Drinking too much alcohol and not sobering up is not a good balance. You could harm your relationships with other as well if you do one thing too much. Too much talking and not enough listening can sometimes be bad for your health if the person that’s talking is an angry woman. Anything in excess is bad for you, moderation of things as simple as cosmetics or condiments can be harmful to you. Too much spice can be a bad thing sometimes.

      So if you’re having health problems because of an inner balance you should remember this symbol. If you ever want to remember why you need balance in your life the nearest reminder of a life of excess and darkness may be closer than you think. For many, a positive “buzz-kill” will disrupt their fun times, but that’s why we all need enough positive people to outweigh the negative ones. The balance of earth has been disrupted too, we all must find our centers and help sway the forces to achieve a sustainable planet.

      8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

      8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

      Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. It’s the opposite of every advertisement we see plastered on the radio and TV. We live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of stuff; we eat up consumerism, material possessions, clutter, debt, distractions and noise.

      What we don’t seem to have is any meaning left in our world.

      By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you can throw out what you don’t need in order to focus on what you do need.

      I know first hand how little we actually need to survive. I was fortunate enough to live in a van for four months while traveling throughout Australia. This experience taught me valuable lessons about what really matters and how little we really need all this stuff we surround ourselves with.

      Less is more.

      Living a minimalist lifestyle is reducing.There are a few obvious benefits of minimalism such as less cleaning and stress, a more organized household and more money to be found, but there are also a few deep, life-changing benefits.

      What we don’t usually realize is that when we reduce, we reduce a lot more than just stuff.

      Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions:

      1. Create Room for What’s Important

      When we purge our junk drawers and closets we create space and peace. We lose that claustrophobic feeling and we can actually breathe again. Create the room to fill up our lives with meaning instead of stuff.

      2. More Freedom

      The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Let it go and you will experience a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.

      3. Focus on Health and Hobbies

      When you spend less time at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses, you create an opening to do the things you love, things that you never seem to have time for.

      Everyone is always saying they don’t have enough time, but how many people really stop and look at what they are spending their time doing?

      You could be enjoying a day with your kids, hitting up the gym, practicing yoga, reading a good book or traveling. Whatever it is that you love you could be doing, but instead you are stuck at Sears shopping for more stuff.

      4. Less Focus on Material Possessions

      All the stuff we surround ourselves with is merely a distraction, we are filling a void. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy comfort. After the initial comfort is satisfied, that’s where our obsession with money should end.

      We are bombarded by the media presenting promises of happiness through materialistic measures. It’s no wonder we struggle everyday. Resist those urges. It’s an empty path, it won’t make you happy.

      Advertising

      It’s hard not to get roped into the consumerism trap. I need constant reminders that it’s a false sense of happiness. I enjoy stuff, but I also recognize that I don’t need it.

      5. More Peace of Mind

      When we cling onto material possessions we create stress because we are always afraid of losing these things. By simplifying your life you can lose your attachment to these things and ultimately create a calm, peaceful mind.

      The less things you have to worry about, the more peace you have, and it’s as simple as that.

      6. More Happiness

      When de-cluttering your life, happiness naturally comes because you gravitate towards the things that matter most. You see clearly the false promises in all the clutter, it’s like a broken shield against life’s true essence.

      You will also find happiness in being more efficient, you will find concentration by having refocused your priorities, you will find joy by enjoying slowing down.

      7. Less Fear of Failure

      When you look at Buddhist monks, they have no fear, and they have no fear because they don’t have anything to lose.

      In whatever you wish to pursue doing you can excel, if you aren’t plagued with the fear of losing all your worldly possessions. Obviously you need to take the appropriate steps to put a roof over your head, but also know that you have little to fear except fear itself.

      8. More Confidence

      The entire minimalist lifestyle promotes individuality and self reliance. This will make you more confident in your pursuit of happiness.
