Tai Chi poem

I have learned attachment,
now I learn detachment.
Attachment is a not letting go,
detachment goes against the grain.
Yin and yang principle resolves this conflict …
yin becoming yang,
yang becoming yin in a spiraling flow of movement.
This is the principle of opposite,
yet complementary forces.
Yin/yang is part of a single force.
This is taiji.
It is not a static concept, but an evolving notion.
We evolve when we ponder it.
