At last the reworking of my website is just about complete – it has been a real revelation looking back over the pages of my original website and deciding what still works, what needs reworking and what can now be done without. In the process of this I was struck by how many analagies it held with applying Feng shui to our homes.
Periodically, we need to reassess, de-clutter and rework our surroundings, to adjust to the new gait of our lives, I suppose, a website is like a virtual home in that way. Another similarity I have found is that it is a work in progress – it can never really be “finished” any more than a spring clean will finally, once and for all, clean your home – unfortunately or fortunately it is a constant progression. The beauty of this realisation is that nothing we do has to be perfect, which in its essence, is a static position, it simply has to be moving towards perfection. Time to let out a sigh of relief!
In Feng Shui we talk a lot about surrounding ourselves with what we love, inspiring ourselves through our surroundings – as a very wise person once said – “your home should rise up to meet you and make your soul sing” .
We also talk about how, with feng shui we are trying to mirror the beauty and harmony and natural rhythm found in nature. If we look outside in any moment, on any day of the year, we can see that the view is never the same, it is constantly evolving and changing. Our challenge then, is to do the same. Constantly reassess and adjust as we go along, so that the clear out or rearranging doesn’t become an huge task and is not overwhelming.
The good news is that we are always in the right place, at the right time, doing what we need to do, at that time, to learn and grow and move forward. So look around and ask yourself, what is your subconsious teaching you via the environment you have surrounded yourself with today?
I will leave you with a quote that I found inspirational – ” if you ask me what there is to do, the answer is that there is nothing to do, but there is everything to be! All action will flow from that new being” Andrew Harvey “The way of Passion”
