Yesterday I was outlining a presentation I will give in two weeks for a group of professional business people. In trying to figure out how to clearly present the material I saw I could use Wind and Water as the interactive forces which change a space’s energy. Outlining further, I found there are nine combinations of wind and water which interact.
The Bagua has 9 areas and is in the shape of an octagon. 9 is he number of completion. The conditions of wind and water total 6, made from 2 sets of 3 conditions each (calm, moderate and severe.) The 2 together total 6, the number of lines in a hexagram for the I Ching (from which arose many of Feng Shui’s principles.)
While it is said that mathematics is the most gorgeous language in the world, studying Feng Shui continues to show me the beauty, symmetry of the perfect system it is, reflecting the nature of the inverse. Just another insight into this incredible art and science.
