Fang Shui Friday

Mum gotted a little book in the box with the kittie mat. I am going to be sharing some of the book on Feng Shui. So I will be having a regular feature of Fang Shui Friday's.

The author bio from the book follows:

Catfucious was born in China in the 5th century Meow Dynasty. Little is known of his early life, but historians have confirmed that he was the favored cat of the Emperor and Empress. His inscrutable ways and legendary wisdom drew many to him to learn of his secrets. Of his writings, only this book remains.



Do not think of the box in the corner as a "litter" box. It is your Zen Garden. Tilling the garden before and after planting is relaxing and will refresh the spirit.

If humans do not refresh the Zen garden in a timely fashion, bad ch'i will result. The wise cat should remind them to refresh the garden by planting something where they least expect it.



From Fang Shui by Catfucious. Peter Pauper Press, 2002

I like that thought - I'll be meditating from now on when I use my litter box! Please don't interrupt!

Hmm. We'll view our litter box in a different light now. It will be a religious experience for us when we use it. Mom better keep out that bad chi.

I don't know, Derby. This Catfucious is a little catfusing to me. It's a purrty book an purty writin, at least.

Patches & Mittens said...

If they don't refresh it, we may plant something "outside the box." Is that what they mean by bad ch'i?

Sounds like a furry wise book.

Gosh Derby, I just can't wait to see what Feng Shui says a cool guy should do to fix up his bachelor pad. Maybe I could use some of the ideas for my relaxation room!
