Does the Ying-yang suggest that good has some evil in it and vice versa?

There is no god, there's no devil. It's just you as you are and there is nothing else. Don't look for it because you will not find it. The idea of good and evil is what creates an internal division which is likely to "blind" people and keep them from looking at the big picture.

Scripts are, but the truly conscious individual would overcome these's a matter of awareness. According to the Tao Te Ching, the existence of one implies the existence of the other. You cannot define something as "good" if there is no "evil". The book talks about that when they talk about the days when there was no loyalty, or trust, or anything like that. Those things were not thought of because they were inherent qualities of human beings. But when deceit and "evil" was "created', then those things became relevant. Basically, they only exist when "evil" exists. When you have no "evil", then you also don't have any "good". All things are neutral -- it is how we perceive it that defines it in a dualistic perspective. Such is the essence of the Tao. The Tao is the unity of the opposites, and thus, in the Tao, there is no "good" or "evil", there just IS. Lao Tsu taught that the wisest approach was a way of ‘non-action’ ("Wuwei"or "wu wei") – not inaction but rather a harmonisation of one’s personal will with the natural harmony and justice of Nature. ‘The World is ruled by letting things take their natural course. It cannot be ruled by going against nature or arrogance.’ (Tao Te Ching; Verse 48). It also means that the individual should do things natural to Tao and appropriate to do in his circumstances, thus serving as an instrument of the Law rather than doing the things as individuals. That is why no one should take any credit for things done. Nature is stabilized by order, and humans along with all other natural phenomena exist within nature. Attempting to force one's own path is arrogant, futile and self-destructive. It should be noted that in Taoism the complemental part of "non-action" ("Wu wei") is "non-left-undone" ("Wu bu wei"). Taoism should be viewed as advocating the harmonization of "passivity" and "activity/creativity" instead of just being passive. In other words through stillness and receptivity natural intuition guides us in knowing when to act and when not to act.
