One of my method of teaching metaphysics and feng shui is introducing students to various proven cases of study, ancient sites, and modern proven cases and spots which have produced good results.
I put very much focus into old classics text of feng shui. However, I would like to share my view that it is pointless and meaningless to limit feng shui study in class room alone or academic analysis into the old classic text either. Knowledge of feng shui has been translated in many ways. The drastic divergence of the views and perspectives which had been held by various scholars and practitioners provide certain truth but NOT all. Therefore, it is good to be more open minded to listen and learn, rather than rejecting the view instantly.
Nevertheless, some of the meanings and interpretations given to feng shui classic are very wrong fundamentally with regard to its effectiveness significant. The result of superficial considerations and carelessness in understanding the real meaning, has cost “zero positive result” in feng shui applications. By leaving aside traditional background of feng shui and occult background embedded which should be considered, feng shui knowledge has been cut into pieces and this makes real picture disappearing.
Secondly, Chinese language is wonderful language in some ways and one reason of its richness and expressiveness lies in the fact that the same word can be used to convey a number of cognitive meanings. Nevertheless, this fact makes it highly possible for the phrases and sentences in feng shui classics to be interpreted in great variety of ways thus causing confusions in the mind of students. Reason may help students in understanding. Tradition may guide him. But, ultimately, he still needs a golden key to unluck the golden knowledge from his proven master.
It is not possible to arrive at the correct meaning by interpreting the feng shui text strictly according to the rules of grammar becasue the real meaning should be based ultimately in the context, mind of feng shui but not on the grammatical forms of the words used. We could not ignore grammar in interpreting Mandarin classics and texts, but, this is no the ONLY one of the factors to be considered.
Before you could take up a detailed consideration of the meanings embedded in the feng shui classic, you need to have “feng shui mind” to help you to note many points of feng shui mind mapping, which only pass down through verbal to inner circle of students by virtue (not by money). And most importantly, the feng shui mind mapping ONLY possible to be transferred , to be inspired (real knowledge is by inspiration and not only by teaching) with help of LAND FORM. Without the land form feng shui, all formula of feng shui is USELESS and POINTLESS.
Therefore, in my teaching, students are always been brought to outdoor practicals in Malaysia, Taiwan and China. In Outdoor training, your mind will be connected to actual topography and real geo-power by feng shui mind mapping transformation. All feng shui sages experienced this kind enlightenment and enabled them to acheive ” REAL Feng Shui” empowerment.
