how i got into feng shui : part i
A long long time ago.
In a galaxy far far away.
Oh. Wait. It was this galaxy.
I was in training in martial arts. And in my school we did a lot of work with chi.
Chi is life force. It is also a very strong weapon. A lot of people in martial arts scoff at chi. I have watched entire discussions go down on the web just dismissing it or referring to it as myth. Which is odd to me. It is the basis of the one inch punch. Also of a heart punch that will literally kill someone dead. Used for healing, chi heals. Used for killing, chi kills. Like most things it all depends on how you use it. And intent.
This is stuff I know about chi from martial arts. Then I heard about feng shui — which is all about exterior chi — and thought, How stupid is that? Chi is an interior element. What the hell does it matter what is going on outside you?
However [there is always a however right?] this other girl in my studio took an interest in feng shui. A big interest. And started talking about it.
I had scoffed at feng shui. I had met people who talked about feng shui at Hollywood parties and I scoffed at them. [Good career move there.] I would never have even considered feng shui except —
Cy started studying it.
Cy is very smart. And also a very good martial artist. Much better than I am. [I am a terrible martial artist.] And when Cy said she was looking at feng shui hard I could not scoff. I had to reconsider. So I did.
