Classic chinese medicine gifted us
with the distinction of yin and yang.
Summer is said as being of yang energy,
element of heat, expansion and growth.
To balance this heat around us
we balance energetic qualities
and can do this intuitively:
balance heat with coolness,
balance rigidity with fluidity,
balance dryness with moisture,
balance the bursting out with
coming back inwardly.
We can balance these aspects
in our space and our relationships,
in our thoughts and our actions.
This is the time to temper the fires,
the ones that are burning within us
and those that are raging around us.
allow the yin, the feminine aspect, to rise.
