Lux in Tenebris
As Harmony or Balance.
The Chinese word ping, meaning peace, conveys no idea of stopping conflict, but implies a harmony of opposites brought about by adjustment. This is conveyed by the taoist symbol of yin and yang (female-male).
Yin represents all that is gentle, tender, loving, co-operative, sensitive, caring, intuitive, dark, feminine, imaginative, mystical, and lunar.
In contrast Yang represents all that is strong, efficent, objective, rational, bright, solar, competitive, male and practical. When the two are in proper balance, as in mature individuals and communities, harmony reigns.
you alone know the way to peace.
