The Yin/Yang of the Three Realms   Leave a comment

First there was the One, Tao

Then there came the Two,  Heaven and Earth,

The Two begets the Third,  Heaven, Earth and Humans

In our selves there are three realms that correspond with these “Three”.  Consider that we are made from the minerals of the Earth. To that the energy of the Heaven was added in the form of sunlight; we humans are a product of the first two.

Our essences is from the Earth and in a way our bodies come from (and returns to) the Earth…. Our spiritual energy comes from (and returns to) Heaven

Earth is Yin and Heaven is Yang the creative forces of the universe or Tao.

We have Human qualities that we can call mental or thinking processes and we have emotional qualities  These two energies make up our “humanness.”  We can also call these things Yin/Yang, where our emotions are considered  Yin and our thoughts are considered Yang.

The way I see it, the three realms stack up like this:

Our physical self’s being of the  Earth (pure Yin)

Our human (mental & emotional) self’s being  Yin/Yang

Our spiritual self’s being Heaven  (pure Yang)

In a very real way even by “scientific” definition we are created by Heaven (the heavens?) and Earth.
