Traditional Feng Shui
Where did it come from?
Feng shui understood traditionally is part of an Eastern cosmology called the 3 Lucks. The first is Heavenly Luck which is considered our basic human blueprint-what we are born with. The second, is Human Luck which relates to our personal development throughout our lifetime and the third, is Earth Luck which seeks to understand the laws of nature as it relates to our environment. The Chinese believe we have influence over the later two Lucks, human and earth.
It is considered very fortunate when a person acquires even a bit of knowledge about Earth Luck during their lifetime.
The Chinese art of placement called feng shui pertains to Earth Luck. This refers to the optimum conditions brought about in nature and our environment for balance and harmony.
The Mandarin pronunciation of feng shui is "fung shway" and in English translates into wind and water. This Chinese Poem describes wind and water in a harmonious state.
