We Are All Duality

Yin and Yang. When male and female were balanced, there was harmony in the world. When they were unbalanced there was chaos. ~Dan Brown

Walking up the steps from the depths of the subway this morning felt like the Morlocks entering fresh air noses twitching at the scent of food, human food, humans as food. I am dressed like the Eloi, a servant group who wore all white. I am wearing white jeans, a very light red shirt that could easily pass for white in the bright sunlight.

As is normal for Western movies of the time and the present, black/dark represents evil while white/light signifies purity/goodness. It’s a dichotomy, a mental masturbation we carry in our thinking.

Is it only Western? Is it universal? Has the East absorbed it from the West? Or the West from the East? Does the Yin/Yang have an evil side? Or is it there to represent alternate points of view?

The black side contains a measure of white. The white a measure of black. The duality is not separate but contains a component of each. This tells me we are duality. You and I are both Yin & Yang and that changes based on who we choose to be at any given moment.
