Read an Excerpt

Preface

In the long period during which I’ve been teaching Feng Shui and providing Feng Shui consultations, I have found that one of the most frequent and important concerns people have is about their relationships.
Many of my students, as well as my clients, have been looking to Feng Shui for answers to their questions about relationships. They ask if there might be some way that Feng Shui could help them to improve an existing relationship, or to find a lover.
Their intuition is right in pointing them to Feng Shui as a factor in these difficulties. There often are space-related issues involved: the spaces in which they are living are just not adequate to nourish a loving relationship, or are even likely to create conflict. At the same time, space itself is seldom the only source of difficulties. Part of their problem also has to do with misperceptions or misunderstandings,
which lead to awkward or inharmonious handling of energy.
In this book, I am trying to deal more comprehensively with the situation: not just with issues of space, but with issues of the energetics of relationships, and how the energetic factors interact with the spatial factors.
I am very aware that love and relationships are complex and delicate subjects. Throughout human history,
millions of books have tried to address these issues.
When I first thought of trying to write something on this subject, I realized right away that it was an ambitious task, but my students and friends kept urging me to write—and my clients’ reactions to the consultations they received also encouraged me.
I decided that it would be most useful to approach the subject from the essence of Feng Shui. Feng Shui sees human activities as part of nature, and in the context of natural processes. It is a point of view that integrates human beings and nature, and also integrates nature with the whole process by which things come to be and pass away. It is a holistic and complete point of view. It encompasses all time and space—a knowledge that is “naturally”
in all of us, since our relationship to the cosmos is one of similarity. In other words, the key to our relationship to the cosmos is the fact that the essential structures of the cosmos and of human existence are the same.
Feng Shui approaches spatial design from the point of view of energetic relationships. In this book I approach romantic relationships from the same kind of energetic point of view—in terms of Yin and Yang, rather than in terms of male and female. At first this perspective may seem so abstract that it loses all the detail. But I hope it will also give a more complete picture.
To present such a picture, I start with general energetic issues, and go on to talk about space and time factors.
Since human beings are living, social organisms, it is also necessary to deal with communication, interpersonal energetics,
food, and sexual activity. I have therefore devoted one chapter to each of these subjects. Even in these chapters,
though, I have avoided getting too involved with details, and tried to link everything back to the larger energetic issues. It is this larger context that is so often missing in modern life. For many people nowadays, life is very specialized and very choppy because people spend so much of their time focused on very narrow areas of their worlds.
There are many books and workshops that deal with relationships, that try to give people techniques for improving their relationships. Some of these approaches tend to present things from a purely spiritual point of view; others present them from an intellectual point of view, or focus on emotional responses. Such approaches can inspire people for a while, but it is easy to go back to the way things were before. The problem is that whatever changes they bring about are only on the level of ideas and emotions, and do not engage the more fundamental level of formative energy.
This is why it is so important to talk about the role of formative energy in romance.
In a very real sense, there are no special ideas or
“secrets” to be found in this book: on an intellectual level,
everything presented here is pretty much common sense,
but everything in our approach aims to make changes at the level of energy, not at the level of ideas.
This is not a big book, a comprehensive book, or a complicated book—and I certainly hope it doesn’t seem that way to anyone. I am not trying to come up with the last word, or a brand-new word—just some helpful words. If every reader finds a few sentences that resonate,
I will feel I have hit my mark.
