YING YANG: THE ELUSIVE SYMBOL THAT EXPLAINS THE WORLD by Jack Rasmussen
— His Holiness the Dalai Lama
UNITED STATES, November 13, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a world marked by chaos and uncertainty, author Jack Rasmussen presents a compelling and enlightening journey in his latest book and #1 new release on Amazon, Yin Yang: The Elusive Symbol That Explains the World. This is Rasmussen’s second nonfiction book after 2022’s Fine Dining, which coincides with Yin Yang. This enlightening new work takes readers on an exploration of the yin-yang symbol’s rich history and its universal significance across various cultures.
Yin Yang elevates itself beyond a simple book and establishes itself as a conversation. Rasmussen engages in in-depth discussions with a diverse array of thought leaders, including religious figures, meditation guides, award-winning authors, psychedelic therapists, and business executives. Through their insights, the book underscores the profound importance of maintaining a healthy duality within our lives.
Rasmussen’s ability to simplify nuanced concepts is unmatched and one of the greatest strengths of his writing. Drawing from proven ideas in psychology and religion, he offers readers a comprehensive yet easily digestible guide to understanding the profound beauty of the yin-yang symbol and its relevance to readers of every background.
Today, as the world grapples with stress, mental illness, and fear, Rasmussen’s book offers a path forward. Yin Yang encourages readers to develop feelings of self-love and embrace their authentic selves fully. In a world characterized by duality and balance, the book provides guidance on accepting both the dark and the light, the feminine and the masculine, and the balance between rest and action within ourselves.
Rasmussen’s own transformative journey towards a lifestyle of mindfulness and inner peace is poignantly reflected in his writing. He posits the hypothesis that being human is not merely about acknowledging the duality within and around us, but also about embracing it, accepting it, and using it to evolve into the ultimate version of ourselves.
Yin Yang: The Elusive Symbol That Explains the World will be a beacon of hope and inspiration for those seeking personal growth, inner peace, and effective leadership. Jack Rasmussen’s profound insights and exploration of the yin-yang symbol offer a roadmap to a more balanced and harmonious life.
“When we face problems, we try to find ways to tackle them. In Buddhism one of our pertinent teachings is the avoidance of extremes. Similarly, nurturing compassion for others while maintaining a positive and comprehensive outlook on life is something that can help in one’s inner development. When faced with difficulties, we should look at the problem from multiple dimensions and not from one angle alone. In this book, Jack Rasmussen shares his personal experience and explores ways to look at life positively. I hope readers find it helpful.” —His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Rasmussen is open about himself, writes in an easy and engaging manner, and provides integrated wisdom beyond his years about a complex and important topic.” —Fred Luskin, Ph.D., Author of Forgive for Good and Stress Free for Good, Director of the Stanford Forgiveness Projects
“Jack delves deeper into the power of a universal symbol, shedding light and offering purposeful hope for a world sometimes filled with doubt and darkness.” —Jon Gordon, 14x Best-Selling Author
“Jack brings an accessible, didactic, simple, and, at the same time, profound approach to concepts that may transform our lives, giving more meaning to our daily routines, and he does this from a fantastic first-person experience. I recommend reading.” —Marcelo Demarzo, M.D., Ph.D., Founder of the “Mente Aberta” – The Brazilian Center for Mindfulness and Health Promotion
