Yin-Yang identification thread

Yin and Yang symbol are well known to most people here, but how about observing the Yin-Yang influence in the past/myth and present? To that end, one can identify either Yin with evil and Yang with good or vice-versa.

To start, let me post Yin-Yang symbol for those who have forgotten what it looks like,

I'll start with the following interpretation (similarity with stuff on web is purely coincidental),

In middle of evil, there will exist an island of good...and in middle of good, there will exist an island of evil.

A case in point being from history/mythology...In Ravan's evil kingdom there was an island of good by name of Vibhishan...and in Dashrath/Ram's good kingdom there was island of evil by name of Manthra/washerman..

Interested echans are invited to think how Yin Yang can be applied to our forum (let the bashing begin...)

Re: Yin-Yang identification thread

Is this thread supposed to be funny? If yes, please let me know and I will (try to) step out. Just yesterday a good friend of mine was telling me how its beneficial to get the negative weeds out of my life/character. I am really thinking of starting it right away. Join me Dhuru i kicking the yin out of our lives?

Yin(g) Yang model of life/universe/Tao states that opposites co-exist. At best you can determine how small the island of good will be in ocean of evil or how small the island of evil will be in ocean of good.

The purpose of this thread was to identify Yin(g) and Yang...not destroy Ying-Yang model by removing negatives or positives

Yes, I am aware of the model. I know they co-exist. However, to have the perfect harmony in life, it is I who should know how much Yin exists in my life. Knowingly or unknowingly, most of us do accommodate more of Yin than what you really must have. I for one know I can do better.

yes, identifying Yin would be the first and the most important step but not the last. And then what next? Weed out what is not needed. makes sense?

if you weed out negatives from positives, you will end up weeding out positives from your negatives.

The more you minimize negatives outside your mind-body, the more evil you will become in your mind-body

Nah, that cant be it. Not for me at least. Lets take an example. Say, I want to face a certain problem, I should be able to face it without making excuses why I cant face it. How can that take a positive out of me?
Like i said, maybe we both work differently. negative and positive should co-exist, true. But at right proportions.
