How does anyone get up and face the day believing that life is made up only of what he or she can see, touch, smell, and move about their small apartment seeking to create the illusion of space via the principles of Feng Shui? I looked up “How to Feng Shui Your Bedroom” on Google and the first item popping up said, “Learn how to create a good Feng Shui bedroom, one that promotes a harmonious flow of nourishing energy.”
So, if you don’t believe there’s anything beyond what you can see, touch, smell, and move about the apartment, why would you waste your time Feng Shui-ing your bedroom? You can’t see, touch, or smell “the flow of nourishing energy,” so what’s the point? Sometimes I wonder if people ever really think about what they’re doing.
Now if it were my bedroom, I would totally Feng Shui it. I absolutely believe energy flows through the atmosphere and, even though I can’t see it with my physical eye, I can see it in my imagination. Don’t tell me you’ve walked into a room where two people had just argued and, despite the momentary silence, you didn’t see the tension.
I remember sitting by the picture window in the kitchen of our former ginormous house on a high hill staring at the fires burning in the evening sky. The clouds raged against each other while the sun retreated below the horizon, creating imagery of celestial bodies in battle, good against evil, gilded by shooting explosions of light from white to orange to deep red and finally purple, conveying that something more was going on than an explicable meteorological conflict. I saw the swords fly; I saw the very large and powerful wings slowly rear back, catch the hot air, and then come forward with a force of divine power nothing could resist. There was a very low and deep thundering as the wings traveled the forward arc, the reverberating sound nearly fading to silence before an inhaling breath drew them back again.
Was it my imagination? Yes. Does that mean it wasn’t real? No.
 Worldliness has been defined as a looking at the things that are seen, but only closely enough to see their market value. Spirituality is that further look that sees their eternal value that realizes that…
Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God.
I’ll tackle more on this next time. I need to do my nails for the Tom Petty concert tonight. Tom Petty once said that his song writing ideas come from God. I like that.
