The Sun Shines by Night and the Moon in the Day

The Tao, made up of a white dot in a dark cloud and a dark dot in a white cloud, clearly portrays the sun shining in the night and the moon shining in the day. The dark cloud represents night, the white cloud represents day, the white dot represents the sun and the dark dot represents the moon.

The sun shining in the day and the moon at night constitute polarity, conflict, Judgement and chaos. While the sun shining in the night  and the moon in the day constitute neutrality, peace, non-judgment and balance.

The moon doesn't have It's own light; moonlight is the reflection of sunlight. This means that the sun gives light to the night true moonlight.

Does this means that the moon is useless in the absence of sunlight? The answer is no! The moon has its own unique function even in the absence of sunlight.

We must recognise that the moon doesn't disappear from the sky in the day. It is only invisible in the day because its light is overwhelmed by day light.

In the day, the moon acts as a compass giving direction to the day. In the night, the moon acts as a light giving vision to the darkness. Moonlight is of cause a reflection of sunlight, which means that the sun shines in the night.

Consequently, moonlight shining at night is a white spot in a dark cloud and moonlight concealed in the day is a dark spot in a white cloud.

Although Yin and Yang could mean Atheism and Theism, the relationship between Muslims and Christians is the best example of Yin and Yang. Islam is a compass represented by the moon and Christianity is a light represented by the sun.

Qibla Compass

Qibla compass is a compass design showing clearly that Islam is a direction, and Muslims constitute just one out of the many directions of a compass. Some of the other directions of the compass are Sikhism, Gnosticism, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Atheism, Psychology, Philosophy, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Baha'i Faith, Babism, Rastafarianism, etc.

Qibla compass is designed specifically to help Muslims locate the direction of Mecca and pray facing the Kaaba. Some designs have the word "Mecca" inscribed as the most prominent direction on the compass; others have the image of the Kaaba or a Mosque signifying the qibla (Muslim direction) on the compass.
Although Judaism doesn't have a compass to show Jews what direction to face during prayers, the fact that Jews all over the world pray toward the Temple Mount is an evidence that Judaism is a direction and the Temple Mount is the qibla of the Jews.

Monad

The Monad (1) is an encycled dot or point O, representing the Alpha and Omega,  constructed using a compass and a pencil. The center of the circle is the origin or source of all things and the circumference of the circle is the end or crown of everything, such that the Monad is the first and the last; the beginning and the end.

Creation of the Cosmos is construction of geometric shapes. The most important part of the process of creation is the construction of the first day and the last day. The two days were constructed simultaneously.

God constructed the first day when he said "let there be light!" (Genesis 1:3) "NIV"

The light that appeared on the first day of creation of the Cosmos is the halo - a ring of light.

The last day is the seventh day when God rested from his work of creation of the harmonious world. "By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work." (Genesis 2:2) 'NIV"…

Mandala, Israel and Geometry of the Axis Mundi

Mandala is a two dimensional representation of the axis mundi: the junction between the physical and the metaphysical. The physical is man or the earth, the metaphysical is God or heaven (sky), and Mandala is where God and man or heaven (sky) and earth are reconciled.

The universe is the sum of heaven and earth.

Universe = Heaven (Sky) + Earth

A mandala (emphasis on first syllable; Sanskrit मण्डल, maṇḍala – literally "circle") is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe(Wikipedia)
We learnt from the Taiji that the axis mundi represents balance or stability. Therefore the universe of the axis mundi is the orderly universe known as the cosmos, which means that Mandala is a two-dimensional representation of the cosmos.

"mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. (Wikipedia)
Mandala is simply a square and …
