The Philosophy of the Dao by Alan Watts

Alan-Watts
Daoists view the universe as the same as, or inseparable from, themselves so that Lao-tzu could say, “Without leaving my house, I know the whole universe.” This implies that the art of life is more like navigation than warfare, for what is important is to understand the winds, the tides, the currents, the seasons, and the principles of growth and decay, so that one’s actions may use them and not fight them.
The Yin-Yang principle is not, therefore, what we would ordinarily call a dualism, but rather an explicit duality expressing an implicit unity.
