Greetings to all who share the wisdom of feng shui!
Search engines such as Google direct us to the desired data in seconds. Every day my inbox pops up with Google Alerts on feng shui topics. These are snippets of information spiked with links to articles and websites. It occurred to me that this info feed is really a very yang activity, skipping and jumping from site to site and staying on the surface.
If you want to dig deeper, you need to go into yin mode, open the feed from a snippet and actually read an article or look at a website. No matter how much you want to settle in and focus on a topic, sidebars keep intruding with pop-up ads and related bits of graphics – thus, more yang to get you out of your yin concentration.
These info snippets are a dangerous means of getting your feng shui tips. Unless you are fully trained in one of the feng shui schools, you cannot distinguish between pertinent and helpful advice versus flippant and conflicting information
These snippets are fleeting and disconnected pieces of information that you cannot capture for a unified whole. How do you deal with surfing, phishing and scamming when e-books suddenly outnumber the tangible objects in your library? You’ve lost the eye-touch coordinator whereby you held a book and remembered that your important info bit was in the top corner of the page or under an illustration on the bottom right.
Clicking through a series of hyperlinks I arrived at an article about “The Best Feng Shui Front Door Color.” The advice offers two options that are contradictory but telling you that either one would be o.k. Choosing between red, black or green, you are invited to decide between facing or sitting directions or the complex system of Chinese elements. How can the novice make decisions based on such multi dimensional options? A temp file on your desktop could be a holding pen for snippets captured by your mouse with a quick copy and paste.
Hyperlinks invite you to additional readings or video clips. Thus you are led into multi readings that result in mass confusion The search is like a giant octopus with tentacles reaching for solutions that are somewhere in the clouds but cannot be captured for a cohesive system and meaningful conclusion.
Info is floating and we need to find a way to harness it into a meaningful system of personal usefulness.
