REALITY'S A BITCH -- The Inscrutable Nature of Feng Shui

This might run against the accepted Feng Shui logic, but it is my personal observation -- once you find a method of magically altering your surroundings and life situations, one that WORKS EVERY TIME, you can only use it for a limited period before it runs out of power. Magic is possible in real life, I have found, but only for a short time. Then that magical ability disappears, and you have to find a new method. Why is this so? I have no idea. In his essay RADICAL THOUGHT French sociologist Jean Baudrillard claims that "reality is a bitch" -- "Reality (also) gets its revenge from those who challenge it by, paradoxically, proving that they are right. Whenever any risky idea, any cynical or critical hypothesis proves to be right, it in fact turns out to be a dirty trick. You are fooled and disarmed. Your arguments are lamentably confirmed by a reality without scruples." In other words, often Feng Shui principles work, and can generate you money or love or luck. However, Reality may be playing a trick on you -- that magical, mystical power you have just discovered may be nothing but a "dirty trick". And as soon as you become complacent about the magical Feng Shui powers you have acquired, Reality pulls the carpet out from under your feet, and you fall shamefully to the floor. This is especially true if you tell your friends that you have discovered that merely by hanging a couple of coins in your bedroom, you can become rich. Reality likes nothing better than to make an ass of you! So, don't grow too complacent about the powers of Feng Shui, and don't brag about it to other people. If you have success, keep to it yourself. Don't trust Reality, even if it is giving you what you want (for now, at least). It might have another agenda -- to make a fool of you, and perpetuate its own mysteriousness in the process. Nonetheless, I think it is possible to outsmart Reality, keep one step ahead of it, such that you keep exploiting the powers of Magic which I am sure exists, without being regularly humiliated in front of your peers. As this website develops, I will share my experiences on how you can do this, and make Reality work for you!
