Golden Elixir Quote of the Week

Awakening to Reality: Poem 12

In plants and trees, Yin and Yang
are equal to one another;
let either be lacking,
and they do not bloom.

First the green leaves open,
for Yang is the first to sing,
then a red flower blossoms,
as Yin follows later.

This is the constant Dao
that everyone uses daily;
but returning to the True Origin —
does anyone know about this?

I announce to all of you
who study the Dao:
if you do not comprehend Yin and Yang,
do not fiddle around.
