There are many things that when we pick up the study of FengShui, we take for granted that what is said and written in books are nothing but the truth. We forgot to investigate if such truths are false theory or something that has been made up to confuse us.
For example, a very simple FengShui idea such as why must a property is said to be in compliance with good FengShui if it is facing an open space such as a river? Well, logically deduction would have been facing an open space is good because it enables good quality air to be brought into the house from the main entrance. When the house face a lower ground, it is always higher at the rear and this call high ground denotes a backing mountain enable noblemen assistance.
Well, you can continue to built upon this line of reasoning until you come across someone that say, hey that is not true. Qi flows from high ground to low ground. Why not facing high ground instead? You see, many rich people houses are built on cliff overlooking panorama views at the rear. Don't tell me these sort of houses have bad FengShui?
There is a very important fundamental annex to these questions. If you are able to discern the "key" to these questions you are able to unlock a lot of treasure troves among all the seemingly conflicting theories available in the market today.
So, what is the fundamental theory that explain these? I am happy to hear from you.
Question 1: In regardless of how the river flows, why almost all FengShui books and FengShui Masters believed that the property must always face towards the direction of the river? Any FengShui theory that can explain this phenomenon?
Question 2: In regardless of how the river flows, which part of the River bank prosper first – A or B? and Why?
