has always understood that the universe is permeated
by a vital force or energy. Everyone knows the Chinese
word chi, sometimes translated as cosmic breath
or vital principle; but it does not matter what name
is given to this energy.
The important thing is that we cannot
live healthily - we cannot live with joy and contentment
- unless we live in harmony with it. Not living in harmony
with it is like swimming against the current of a river,
or walking into a high wind.
The Chinese people became aware of
this force long before the occidental world did. By a
process of trial and error extending over many centuries,
they developed practices through which human beings might
understand and use chi in its various manifestations.
In the West, the best known of these
practices are the martial arts, and especially the 'internal'
arts of Tai Chi Chuan, Bagua Chang and Hsing Yi Chuan.
and more people have experienced the benefits of acupuncture
and related therapies. More recently, the West has become
aware of the art of Feng Shui, literally 'wind-water',
sometimes called the art of placement. It is the art
of managing or arranging our environment in such a way
as to create a fruitful relationship between ourselves
and the chi which flows through all parts of it.
Master Simon Wong is a highly accomplished
practitioner of Feng Shui and has helped many people
over the past fifteen years or more.
But the Chinese people understand that
to every positive there is a negative: every force has
its 'dark side.'
Master Wong knows that Feng Shui can
be harmful, or can fail to be beneficial, if misused
or used by people whose understanding of it is inadequate.
It is for this reason that he has decided to make his
knowledge available in writing. The result is volumes
full of knowledge and wisdom.
