4. For many generations, researchers have been trying to unravel the nature of human thought.
“I think, therefore I am” – but, what are thoughts? Just some fleeting void? Or a huge, scarcely researched secret of life? Plan, act, react – what lies behind the game of life? What animates and drives our thoughts, and what are the effects of thoughts?
Thoughts are invisible, but they have a great effect – evidently reaching beyond our own bodies. Through thought we influence our environment and are influenced by it. The latest research confirms what ancient wisdom told us: our responsibility also embraces the inner world. Through each decision we direct the course of our lives and decide our fate. The power of thought – the fire of the soul – makes us human.
How to Use the Chinese Magic Square — The Lo Shu
Thousands of years ago in China, the Lo River flooded, inundating the local population. The people were desperate, and frantically made offerings and sacrifices to the river god, asking him to return the water to its banks.
Suddenly a turtle surfaced on the river. The people saw that there was a pattern on its shell, a grid of nine squares. Each square had dots adding up to numbers. No matter which way the dots were added across the rows either diagonally, vertically, or horizontally, the sum was 15. The diagram was called the “Lo Shu,” or “Lo River Writing.”
The turtle gave the people the pattern on its back as a map or grid of the natural flow of chi and the elements, and this square with its numbers became a foundational tool in Feng Shui and Taoist traditions. The square is also carried as an amulet or placed in homes and offices as a protective charm.
