The Feng Shui Philosophy

The Feng Shui Philosophy

Feng Shui literally translates to “wind” and “water” in Chinese. It comes from the idea that human life is connected to and flows from the environment around it.

It is the simple art of arranging your furniture to create balance with the natural world. The goal is to bring harmony between an individual and their environment.

Feng Shui | The Commanding Position

• The spot in a room that is the furthest from the door and not in direct line with it. Ideally, it’s a corner diagonal from the door.

• This is where you want to spend most of your time when you are in that room.

• Place your bed, your desk, or your stove here in diagonal alignment, if possible.

The bed represents you, the desk is an extension of your career, and the stove represents your wealth and nourishment.

  • Utilitarianism is not based on utility, but the intrinsic value of something based on pleasure or happiness, or both.
  • A screwdriver has an instrumental value, as it is useful while doing carpentry or repair work, but it does not provide any pleasure or happiness.
  • A red rose provides both pleasure and happiness, which is why it has an intrinsic value.
