Seems that Hong Kong investors are increasingly turning to Feng Shui masters for guidance with their investments in these turbulent economic times. And while the Wall Street Journal is reporting this, we need to consider the status of Feng Shui in Hong Kong.
A city perfectly designed by Feng Shui experts. Hong Kon is the world’s 11th largest economic center. Almost every business has used it’s Feng Shui advisors in the design and implementation of its space; buildings are designed to create “feng shui wars.” It may be prudent to realize what’s good for Hong Kong may OR may not be sage advise for the rest of us.
What’s the lesson? Feng Shui absolutely can help businesses increase their bottom line, but when it comes to investing, it should be just one of many tools used in judgment making. When sailing, it is wise to check the direction of the wind rather than ignoring it. And, as Confucius would say, “all things in moderation.” At the same time, realize that Feng Shui definitely has accuracy in helping to see where both the wind and the water are going.
