Benefits From More Female Engineers

September 20, 2018

I say hurrah! See two notes below from this inspiring article about engineering in Africa.

“Female engineers make a unique contribution to city planning, as they bring inclusive solutions to the table, Vallabh believes.”

“Women in the developing world give more attention to communities. So women have the brains and the people factor. Women make engineering human,” she says.

Small Bite: Nourishing Your Obstacles

Feng SHui SB SmallBites pink

Nourishing Your Obstacles
Case File 46 of Feng Shui Storyboard is titled Taking a Selfie. We are taking some time to look within and to ponder what we have learned during our 4 years of study together. We are asking questions every day, and I want to share one that has our attention.
“Can you set aside the time to nourish your obstacles, treat them with respect, respond with concern, and grow something productive where it seems nothing can grow?”
We are asking how we can allow hardship to move us closer to spirit – to let us let go of taking things personally – quelling both anger and indignation and doing away with frustration and impatience, self-pity, and self-indulgence.
Can we look at our obstacles without being defeated?
As we continue to develop the ability to face our obstacles with grace, refining our reactions and polishing our spirit, we will become so adaptable that we will thrive in any surrounding.
As Professor said, “Our work is to encourage flexibility.”
How will you face an obstacle you might encounter today?

East Hampton House for Sale

September 6, 2018

This is the house featured in one of our Case Files, and upon which Professor commented when I presented him with pictures just after the house was featured in a Hampton newspaper. It is now for sale, and I want to know the story! Professor was concerned that such stimulation of the immune system (as touted by the architect) day after day would, over time, become a grave depletion. Does anyone know the story?

Small Bite: Notes for Daily Life

Feng SHui SB SmallBites pink

Notes for Daily Life from Professor
  • When you are busy, you may make mistakes of body, mind, and speech. Be careful; be cautious. If you do things well before a deadline, you may avoid the mistakes that are made in haste.
  • When speaking casually, you may make a mistake. You may let a secret slip, or inadvertently malign someone’s good name. If you pay attention as you speak, you can avoid saying something that is hurtful, unkind, or mean.
  • When you have little money, you are usually careful with money. When you have a lot of money, you may begin to make some mistakes. It seems as if the supply is unlimited, and you spend without thinking. This is the time to be most careful. Cherish the money, and spend wisely.
  • When you are not angry, you may think that you never get angry. But, when something happens, you may find yourself very angry. You may, then, react in a way that you regret. It is important to adjust your chi on a daily basis.

Notes from Bernadette

August 17, 2018

Hi there,

I wanted to get this to you sooner. Hope your voyage was fruitful! Here are some photos:

1st: Moby (musician who loves buying architecture is selling this house – good thing too – look at this beam over the Master bed!

2nd: sleeping in the belly of the snake in Mexico – so beautifully done. This extraordinary Mexican Airbnb. The architect blends his structures with their environments and the topography of the land. Wonder what Professor would have said about this one?!? What would the effects be if Snake was your friend in Chinese Astro – she’s one of mine. Plans are below:

http://www.arquitecturaorganica.com/nido-de-quetzalcoatl.html

3rd: a design bloggers staircase to an attic room which is being lauded on other sites for it’s ingenuity. When I saw this I felt a sense of disarray. Her thoughts were “this is a great place to throw all these old books”. Her house is impeccable (not FS perfect) and a work in progress. Would love your take on this one with the narrowing of the passage as you ascend.

4th: home as blank palette for colour lighting – interesting concept – often used in healing work but this takes it further…

And for the spirit, from a teacher I highly respect: https://tricycle.org/magazine/what-is-bodhicitta/
