Free Module 2: Shapes & Form Feng Shui
Chapter 1: The Landscape
Many books written by Feng Shui authors may tell a different story about the origins and the practice of Feng Shui. But the fact remains is that China has a large expanse of land, mountains, hills, lakes, rivers, the soil and many other features, undulations and landscapes.
It is thus not surprising for the ancient Chinese to judiciously study their surroundings in the hope of building better palaces, temples, settlements, homes, burial tombs and more.
The Chinese belief that there are three kinds of luck:
1. The luck that you make for yourself: Personal Luck (Ren Cai)
2. The luck that was bestowed upon you by heaven when you were born: Heaven's Luck (Tian Cai)
3. The luck that come to you from your environment: Earth Luck (Di Cai). Feng Shui is all about improving one's Earth Luck or Di Cai.
