listening to a picture

What does this “simple” image say to me?

Many things.  Probably more than I know.

One thing it clearly says is: “listen”.

yin yang spin red - September 22, 2014pm

Years ago, while reading Understanding the I Ching by Cyrille Javary, I discovered that our common yin-yang symbol is misleading.

The round circle, with its balance of white and black, is like a snapshot of a continual transformation…

The yin-yang forces are constantly shifting.  A more accurate symbol would show the white moving into the space of the black as the black moves into the space vacated by the white.
