Heaven in Taoism

Recommended Posts

Heaven = Yang, head, sky, higher states of consciousness

Man = Yin & Yang

Earth = Yin, feet, ground, jing, nourishment


Man embodies both polarities: Heaven & Earth. He is also placed in the middle of the two (internal organs, yin & yang and change (si xiang/the four aspects of yin & yang & 5 forces).


Totally unrelated to Hindu & Buddhist cosmology.
