Understanding the Yin-Yang of God
“The Symbol of God is the Tai-Chi (Great Ultimate). The symbol is a Circle divided into two by a curved line in the shape of a Reversed S. Half of the Circle is Dark, while the other half is Light. Within the Dark part, there is a white dot, and within the Light part, there is a black dot. This signifies Yin within Yang, and Yang within Yin.
The Yin-Yang of God is the Universal and the Personal. Imagine that the Dark part of the Tai-Chi symbol is the Universal. In it, God is perceived as undifferentiated, neutral, impersonal, pure source energy. Imagine that the Light part of the Tai-Chi symbol is the Personal. In it, God is revealed to be personal, expressed, experienced, Lord and Redeemer. Imagine that the Personal is hidden in the Universal, and the Universal is a deeper aspect of the Personal.
Imagine that while being fully immersed in the Yin part of the Symbol, one only thinks of God as the Universe and Pure Source Energy, but does not observe the existence of a Personal God or Supreme Being. Imagine that while being fully immersed in the Yang part of the Symbol, one only thinks of God as Personal Lord and Creator, but does not recognize that God also functions as pure source energy operating by universal laws that all beings can direct and utilize.
Imagine that when one who is in the Yin part of the Symbol happens to perceive the white dot in it, and is drawn in by the Personal. He emerges into the other side and experience God in a very personal way and is able to feel and know the Presence. Imagine that when one who is in the Yang part of the Symbol explores more deeply about the reality of God and discovers the Universal and realizes that there is an aspect of God that connects with everything else in a cosmic and neutral way.
Both aspects of God are Equally True and Simultaneously Present at All Times. Imagine that all beings are moving in a circle (cycle) between experiencing one aspect of God and the other. Some seem to be immersed in one part of the Symbol for an indefinite amount of time, some seem to cycle slowly, and some seem to cycle faster. And some seem to cycle at such a high speed that the two parts blend as one, and they seem to be able to perceive both aspects together much of the time.”
