Yin and Yang is an important concept in Chinese community, and I don’t think that as Muslims, we can’t believe in that (Chinese isn’t a religion, it is a race). Just, we doesn’t tend to clarify that what we’re believing in is called “Yin and Yang”. It is only another term for “every things were made in pair” belief. At the end of today’s class, Lao shi told us about this concept and I, unconsciously had so much thoughts.
Yin and Yang, as the familiar figure that we often see; comprises of black and white. It is a symbol of perfection. Man – Woman; Earth – Atmosphere; Good – Bad; Love – Hate; and so on.
If we understand the nature of this world – everything were made in pairs; I think, life would not be as difficult as we expected. I believe, we came to know this law isn’t by Yin and Yang or from other legendary story or myth, it is in Al-Quran at the very first place, right?
Allah always mentioned in the Al-Quran about Heaven and Hell, Right and Left groups of peoples, Day and Night, Moon and Star and let us reflect on these amazing pair – hardship and ease.
It is beautiful that in every hardship, comes ease. No matter how tough your life is going to be, at the same time you will be experienced the ease.
Sometimes ( usually, most of the time), we often drown so much into the soreness that we overlook another bright side of something else. Ability to realize the existence of the easiness in that something else is a real cure; a cure for the wounded heart, and it provide us with another better path.
So, don’t worry for the difficulties that you have now, or things you can’t achieve for this time being. Allah already planned our road depending on how strong our feet can stand.
Again, for the perfection – with efforts come succeed, and with every cries has its own smiles. Everything is in perfect pair and each of them are completing each other.
We just need to spend some time to think and re-evaluate the rationality of our life events.
A reminder for myself, especially.
