What is the meaning of the well-known Taoist Yin-Yang (or Taiji) symbol? In terms of Taoist cosmology, the circle represents Tao - the undifferentiated Unity out of which all of existence arises. The black and white halves within the circle represent Yin-qi and Yang-qi - the primordial feminine and masculine energies whose interplay gives birth to the manifest world: to the five elements and ten-thousand things.
The curves and circles of the Yin-Yang symbol imply a kaleidoscope-like movement. This implied movement represents the ways in which Yin and Yang are mutually-arising, interdependent, and continuously transforming, one into the other. One could not exist without the other, for each contains the essence of the other. Night becomes day, and day becomes night. Birth becomes death, and death becomes birth (think: composting). Friends become enemies, and enemies become friends. Such is the nature - Taoism teaches - of everything in the relative world, the "dance of opposites" that defines our daily experience.
Through the practice of meditation and/or qigong, a Taoist practitioner brings the yin-qi and yang-qi of the physical and subtle bodies into balanced harmony. As life-force energy begins to flow within the Chong Meridian (known in Hindu yoga as the Sushumna Nadi), access to the nondual awareness of the Tao becomes more and more continuous. In other words, along with noticing the "waves" of our daily experiences (e.g. thoughts, emotions, sensations & perceptions), we also stay tuned into the "ocean" out of which those waves arise, and into which they dissolve, continuously.
Chinese herbal medicine and/or alchemical supplements such as Tonic Gold or Siddhi Energetics formulas can be wonderfully useful supports -- along with qigong and meditation -- for this kind of profound bodymind transformation: gateway to Immortality.
