When we speak of Divine we are speaking of the All, the Everything. Divine is where we are created and where we return at the end of our final reincarnation. The Yin/Yang represents the two aspects of the Divine, the balance of feminine and masculine. The Yin is black, dark, passive, encompassing and feminine. The Yang is white, light, forceful, penetrating, and masculine. The Yin is form, the bowl, whereas the Yang is force, the water pouring into the bowl.
Yin is the loving mother who opens her arms to receive the embrace of her children. Her towering strength allows her to remain open, accepting, and allowing. The Yin represents the subconscious mind and the moon. Yin is the Goddess.
Yang is the father; assertive, enlightening, and dynamic. He is the spark that ignites a fire, the initial impulse that arouses us to take action. The Yang represents the conscious mind and the sun. Yang is the God.
As you can see, the Yin/Yang is the ultimate symbolism of balance. Black and White, Feminine and Masculine, Goddess and God; neither are more important than the other.
The Goddess is the female essence of Divine. She is the Great Mother, the womb through which all life begins and returns. She is a part of everything and She is everywhere. She is the Earth below us, the air above us, and the food and water we need to survive. She is the destructive power that allows new life to grow; the fires and the tidal waves, the volcanoes and earthquakes. She is always with us as we walk our spiritual path whispering encouragement in our ears.
The Lady is often represented by three archetypes: the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone. Exploring these representations can increase our understanding of the Goddess.
The God is the male essence of Divine. He is the Great Father, the external spark that gets life moving. Like the Goddess, He is a part of everything and He is everywhere. He is the fire keeping us warm. He is the spirit in a group of men defending their homes. He is the wise man.
The Lord is also represented by three archetypes: the Wild One, the Father and the Sage. In these aspects, He represents the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth.
