八卦 Ba Gua

Looking at Feng Shui you find that it describes the energy structure of space and time. We all bear certain energy that changes with space and time. These days my own energy is quite different from when I was younger. It has even changed over the past two years. Music, for example, can change the energy of space for a duration of time. Geomancy will map these energies as they move across space and time. When you have a map you can really only deal with one major issue. Even if the situation is quite bad you can still find ways to survive. There are always opportunities in a disaster for example. My own knowledge of Feng Shui is quite limited and I am always trying to learn. I am slowly getting to the stage though where I can ask questions about the energy maps and see what certain patterns mean. Mostly I tend to forget certain details, this means I need to revisit my notes which are far from thorough.

The main reason I wanted to talk about energy structure is that I feel trapped within the current lockdown. The energy that I bear at the moment needs seclusion though. A part of me is gladly trapped considering the overall situation playing out. I don’t really want to spend time with people to the point that I am hardly on social media. I want to hide while the disaster plays out around me. This all relates to the Feng Shui map I did in class last night. It wasn’t about me of course. I am just within the energy structure that moves around me and everyone else. I can literally feel the energy around me like a weight. Writing this short post for example and making it public isn’t relevant because I only attract a small audience. That is because of the energy that I bear. I think of past visual art collaborators who have moved on and I hold no grudges because they bear the energy of youth, daring and challenging life itself.

For me, I think of the Gua of the mountain in the eight diagrams reaching to the sky. Where the Earth meets the Sky.
