Naja Li uses the gift of clairaudience to bring you her Guide to Living a Life of Love – A Book about Love and Life and the Willingness to Heal. This book is the second in a series on Feng Shui, and its message is that True Healing is available to all. Naja Li’s insights offer the reader access to knowledge of a timeless present in which we all live as one.
Chapter One presents an ancient Feng Shui Master’s observations about the nature of being. It describes the mechanism of living and dying, and includes an outline of the role of Karma in creating human form. This chapter provides essential background to the description of True Healing found in Chapter Two. True Healing is described as a timeless present through which anyone can live a more peaceful life.
This book will also be of interest to readers who wish to know more about the history of Feng Shui. For here you will find an outline of the history of the tradition, from its origin as a burial cult to its expression as the tradition described as Li. According to this history, True Healing became Feng Shui’s ultimate goal. Naja Li’s Guide to Living a Life of Love describes how the Li tradition of Feng Shui, from which Naja takes her name, was one of the traditions to develop this knowledge into a radical programme for living. As you will read, Feng Shui is described as standing apart from known religious or philosophical traditions, in this way becoming a tradition for everyone.
This book also contains a Feng Shui theory of numbers, essential for understanding the relationship between man and nature. An outline of this relationship, along with more detailed information about the teachings of Li, can be found in the first book of this series, Naja Li’s Guide to Talking to Trees.
As all the information provided here is an exact transcription of that which Naja Li has ‘heard’, no editorial changes have been permitted. It is for this reason that the arguably androcentric terms man, mankind and men have not been changed in favour of more neutral language. This is also the reason why the text is redolent with archaic structures, for example ‘the dust of mortal embrace’ is the term supplied for that process described in Naja Li’s Guide to Talking to Trees as ‘Karma’.
Please note that what follows is written in the form of an address: that of a single Feng Shui Master to Naja Li. It was delivered as the logical extension to, and expansion of, the knowledge provided in Naja Li’s Guide to Talking to Trees.
Chapter 1: A Feng Shui Master’s observations about the nature of being
Many things are possible when you follow nature. This is the real power of Feng Shui. For nature directs all action in the material world, its unseen forces guide the hands of men. The stars as they move become actions on earth – this is the knowledge of Feng Shui Masters, and for this our knowledge was highly prized. For the Masters saw, as men cannot, how the movement of the heavens direct the fortunes of man. But man is weak and saw only fortune, did not see the secrets that you know. For Feng Shui sees what man must know to live and die and be as one.
Nature’s power is in its ability to create order. All creation is formed in this order, and in every way seeks its return. When this order cannot be created there is disharmony; of this many men know. But their knowledge is limited to what they can see, for Feng Shui Masters understand within the realm that is not seen. They know, as you will too, how the forces of nature that cannot be seen direct the hands of man in ways he cannot see or know or understand.
Feng Shui does not make changes, it only sees what is already there. The heart, the home, the endeavours of man, all are perfectly arranged according to the stars. It is only Feng Shui that sees how the wonder of nature creates these patterns that man then knows as their lives. This is the incredible power of knowledge of the stars. This knowledge corrupted Feng Shui and turned good men into sorcerers as they sought to make riches for the highest powers of the land. For Feng Shui can see the power of nature, can see the future of man. Some of great power can direct those fortunes and corrupt the fortune of man. In these cases – of which there are many – Feng Shui became more than observation. For all mankind has the power to make these observations: to take the soul of nature into his heart, to correct his ways and return to a more peaceful path. This is Feng Shui for the common man, and it is a noble path.
This is not the path that is described by monks and the servants of temples, for their minds are closed to what lies beyond their books. They know too and see too the power of nature, but their ways are determined by a hardness of heart. For only those who follow their path may be as one with light. Feng Shui knows and Feng Shui was hated for saying otherwise. It was always thus. Do not expect to be heard for this is not your fortune. Seek to speak to those of lesser fortune whose lives are touched with sadness, and who know pity and scorn. For theirs are the heart to which Feng Shui offers its finest – a way out of sadness, and the hope of being as one with light.
This is man’s only goal, it is man’s only task. Take every moment and thank your ancestors for the gift of life, for they will set you on the path to be free. Walk with them as they have walked before you, willing you to open your heart and truly see. For nature’s power is that the patterns you see are also the patterns that lie beyond. The whisper of a shell and its curved spine are the patterns that describe your fortune. For all is patterned on the movement of the stars, in a way of which man may only guess.
Do not fall for believing that it is the stars you see, or the rise and fall of the moon, that creates the very moments that touch the lives of man. For this is not so. The patterns of man, the patterns of nature, were set in a mechanism that occurred long ago, at the beginning of what you call time. For your knowledge is limited by knowledge of time, for man cannot see beyond his lifespan. For this reason, man cannot see that the patterns of nature go beyond time and go beyond what can be seen. This is what we mean by the movement of the stars. And indeed it is by the stars that Feng Shui Masters know of the birth of what you call time, for they see, through their knowledge and patience, how time was created.
The birth of what you call time was created by forces that combined to become none. From many, many stars and many ways there came a darkness without light. From this light emerged a galaxy, our galaxy, and within this galaxy there exists time. Time does not exist beyond, nor is it necessary. Time exists only where there is man. Man’s heart cannot rest within the bounds of time, the peace eternal of his final rest is the peace that he draws from nature. For nature’s soul is time eternal, it breathes knowledge of an existence without time. For though what you see all around is governed by the sun and the stars and light and the water – this is not nature’s time. For nature belongs to a rhythm and a clock that is eternal, and was set on this in a continuation of that creative force from which time emerged. Nature came first and out of nature came time, and within the bounds of time exists man. But it is the power of nature that governs the soul of man – for the soul exists beyond time, beyond the experience of man, in the realm where time does not exist. This is the realm in which you hear, and of which you will speak. Speak and tell the world of a place beyond time where the soul is at peace, where we are as one in light. For nature and the soul are one. And to be united in light, as one outside of time and beyond the limits of this galaxy, is eternal rest.
Theory of numbers
What you call I Ching is protected knowledge of what lies beyond time. By this knowledge Feng Shui Masters predict the beginning of the world and the power of nature. It was in this way that they came to know that time is a limitation of man’s existence, and that beyond time lies the one with which man must rest. For man’s final rest lies outside time, in a realm beyond the reach of the stars and in a state beyond man’s knowing.
For each man has a time assigned to him at birth, and which he cannot change. This time is sealed at birth and is a consequence of his birth, of the pattern that fell on his head as the dust of mortal embrace created mortal form. This dust is not evil, for all man is pure and is as one with creation – there is no out of place and there is no imperfection. For all seek to exist in one muddied river – the swirls of water as they carry away the storm exist momentarily with the pools of calm reflection. The river is created, ever existing. Not perfected, without reason.
For there is no reason for existence. This may be man’s single obstacle to being as one with light – the unwillingness to be as one with the world, and instead to seek his or its perfection. Perfection is the order by which nature was created. There is no reason, but this is not nature’s undoing. How can a tree be less than perfect? How can a forest be other than itself? Feng Shui is the eye that sees the power and beauty of nature, and knows that within its limits there lies knowledge of an existence without limits.
This is why man’s number is four and nature’s number is five. Together they create the union of nine, the single most important number in all creation. Nine stands at the seat of all knowledge, for it is the key to discovering the truth of the universe and what you will come to know about time. Nine signals the moment of perfection – the leap from the known to that which lies beyond. Man in his limitation cannot see beyond time, cannot see the number that leads to eternal rest. For nine is a musical note that trembles in the air, and brings with it light. And by this light you may see, as Feng Shui Masters have seen, that there is a realm that lies beyond all this suffering. It is the path of light. It is the path you know as Li, and it is one that exists beyond man’s knowledge.
Four alone or five alone cannot create nine. Only together as man and nature are joined may man become as one with light. As man becomes as one with light then he will see that suffering is linked to time and that time does not exist. For nine is the realm of light to which souls must travel. Feng Shui Masters saw, as you one day will see, that to draw the power of nature into your heart is release from suffering. This is the way mortals can embrace the realm of light even before death. This is what you know as True Healing, although there are other names. In this state suffering is lifted, and the burden of time is released. This you know already, for you already know that knowledge is not bound by time, but only by man’s embracing of suffering.
The power of Feng Shui is knowledge of the timeless present, of the power of nature brought into the lives of men. With this knowledge there is no unknowing, for all of creation is laid before you. All of the knowledge and wonder of life, all of the joys and sorrows of man, all of the actions and their consequences are laid out as a banquet. Within this knowledge there is only peace, for without time there is only appreciation of the great unfolding of man. War, peace, poverty, sickness, illness, jealousy, the vices of the noble and the charity of none. All these are given their place at the vast table at which man must eat. For within this knowledge there is no death, as death is but a beginning. Within this knowledge exists no sickness, as existence is created in the knowledge only of the uncertain and timeless present within which the presence of man in his earthly form is fleeting. Man’s life is as dew on the grass: fleeting, meaningless, of perfect beauty and vanished with the sun. This state of existence, beyond time’s grasp, is the power of Feng Shui.
Nine is the number of the union of man and nature, it is the gateway to seeing the harmony that exists outside of time. Six is the perfect number of time, tied to mortal perfection. It is the knowledge of beauty alive within time, it is the embrace of wisdom that suffering brings. Six is the union of man and the forces that gave him life, for this is the number of the dust of mortal embrace that gave man form. Without form there is no life, without life there is no time, without time there is no space that exists outside of time. Each existing in a realm of perfection, neither existing without the other.
Six is the beauty of knowledge of the consequences of action. As you know, for you have seen, how man is bent by the will of those forces that existed before his birth. This dust, as it settles at the moment of birth, bursts forth into the flower promised long before spring. Six is the knowledge of the freedom of accepting that all suffering follows the pattern man himself created. Six is the knowledge of the existence of suffering, and how this brings about perfection. For without suffering there is no form, without form there is no release, without the realm of mortal embrace there is no eternal rest.
Man’s journey ends in eternal rest. Feng Shui does not promise ease of suffering, nor does it promise a gentle return. Feng Shui is the knowledge of its existence and the teaching that existence brings with it perfection, without need of explanation. What need of wealth when all is perfection? What fear of death when you see the journey? What lies beyond death and suffering is a realm that depends on death and suffering for its own existence. How then can we not embrace them?
Feng Shui sees, as man cannot, that the created order is itself perfection. That suffering, death, disappointment, the greed of men and the curse of riches are as they should be. Not to be feared, nor be respected; they just are the ways of man. Feng Shui sees, as man cannot, that suffering and greed are a gift of a perfect creation in which all exist as a perfect form. Feng Shui teaches one thing only – that this realm of suffering is but a part of a perfect whole. Embrace suffering, welcome death, accept your lot in life. For you are as one with the river: ceaseless, unchanging, always unknowing until you meet the sea. Where you will be as one with light.
Feng Shui Masters saw that the order of heaven is recreated on earth. That the ceaseless, perpetual cycle of creation and destruction, that the folly and futility of the ways of man are cycles of existence based on the patterns of heaven. This was the purpose of I Ching too – to discover the patterns of heaven that man’s path might be smooth. But to bring Feng Shui into the pettiness of man and his ever seeking profit is an abomination of Feng Shui, for it was not for this that we have mastered our knowledge. Our gift is in our knowledge and our sight, not in our ability to make man rich. You must avoid the temptations your knowledge brings, for many a Master has fallen to the temptations of this life. This life is a fleeting moment within a vast eternity: know that your fortune on earth is not your destiny, for your destiny is to be as one with light.
This too is the limitation of Feng Shui, for it offers neither a path to wealth nor a path of peace. Feng Shui is mere knowledge of the ways and means by which we travel to be as one with light. Never say it more.
Chapter 2: True Healing
What you know as True Healing is the perfection that man can achieve on earth. This is a path blessed by the ancestors, along which you may walk as one in light. True Healing brings with it much joy, for it carries with it the wisdom and knowledge of the bounds of time and the ceaselessness of eternity. True Healing does not prevent death but prepares you for death as, when you meet its doorway, soul may become as one with light. Feng Shui does not direct the soul to its next mortal appearance, nor does it change the manner in which you become as one with light: Feng Shui is the knowledge of how it comes about.
True Healing cannot occur without acceptance of past deeds, without opening your heart to the possibility that the wickedness of mankind lives in your own heart. For within your heart lies the possibility of all creation, and man in his petty jealousies, rage, with anger and bitterness lives in you as in the lives of all men. True Healing cannot be achieved unless the knowledge of man and that of which he is capable is acknowledged, and for which you show remorse. Those that cannot see that their lives are shaped by the dust of mortal embrace – by the actions and deeds of their own fleshly deeds – cannot walk in light. Ancestors can only guide the path, they cannot set a hand to the actions of this world.
The realm in which ancestors dwell lies beyond earthly experience. Many, though, do see and hear the imprint of ancestor lives on earth and, for this reason, you may offer the following explanations. Ancestors exist in a state of love and knowledge of all that is possible. Their wish is to guide and assist their loved ones on earth, for their knowledge of the living is guided by their ability to exist within the realm beyond. In this realm, all lives in which you have lived are as one. ‘Ancestors’ is not the heritage of one lifespan, it is the heritage of them all. All those life lines that you have touched, all those times in which the movement of the heavens deemed that you would create, exist as one. ‘Ancestors’ are not people, although some may see the imprint of lives once lived. ‘Ancestors’ are an eternal force existing continuously, seamlessly, within and without the experience of earthly being. To be blessed by the ancestors, and guided along the path that they will, is of great benefit to those who wish to walk in the path of light. For the ancestors’ purest wish is that all mankind would see, as they can, that all of man is light and that we are all one.
Events in the history of Feng Shui
True Healing is a state in the spiritual path. It is the peace that comes with the knowledge of man’s place in creation, no more. True Healing does not cause a change to the body and cannot be measured, except by those who measure Qi. For the Qi will change in those who take peace as their path, for the Qi directs one to become as one with light. To have True Healing is to know peace, not health. This was the mistake that heralded the end of our ways, for Qi masters were caused to become ministers of health, and to prevent dying instead of embracing it. The history of Feng Shui is short because our knowledge was not allowed to exist in the form in which it was developed: the knowledge of death, and its position within a vast kingdom of existence. Feng Shui Masters knew Qi, they saw it on the body as shining rays of light. This is the mark of a true Qi Master, one who sees what you have been told.
All medicine is fraught with temptation to profit from misery, and once Qi Masters became medicine men the old ways were lost. Feng Shui lost its allure, and we were ridiculed for being unwilling to save people from death. We did not think it right to save people from what should be embraced, for we alone could see how men were marked by the dust of mortal embrace. When a man is marked for early death, then die he will. Not in an hour, or a day, or even a year. But death arrives at the moment that was directed at the moment of birth. There is no hand that may change this, no medicine, no salve that can lessen suffering. Only man can choose to end his suffering by being as one with light. In this state when death occurs, suffering is ended as man steps into the light to return no more.
It is from this realm that we speak and from where are hearts are joined with yours. For you hear because you know of the love that is our very universe. This love is more than a path, it is your very existence. For you are light and light is love, and within the realm of light there exists only kindness and compassion.
The nature of love
The love that you feel is real, it is what you are made of. Love is not a feeling, it is your very existence. The knowledge of one you have loved before is the connection you make with the state into which you were both last born. The dust of mortal embrace contains within it the light in which you dwelled in previous lives on earth. This memory of a way of being is how you live in love. True Healing exceeds this love and changes the experience of the way your darkness covers you. As the darkness shifts there is great pain, as you have discovered. As this darkness shifts you may be as one in light, know peace and live a life in love.
True Healing is not medicine, it will not prevent your death. It will not change anything other than your ability to transmit light. True Healing is a path that must be blessed by the ancestors, and it was for this reason that the Feng Shui Masters of the tradition you know as Li spoke only of their gifts. For ancestors will that all their children will be as one with light. Many watch from the realms of the undead, a vault that exists between the light and the material world. Within this realm are many voices, some waiting to be reborn, others trapped. Those who are trapped are those who have sacrificed their souls in the pursuit of the unjust. The prayers of the living may move them to a higher realm from which they may be reborn, but this is not common. Also here are those souls that have departed the bodies of the living for, as you know, on earth there exist vast armies of the undead – men and women who live only in the material world. Their souls will be reborn with ease, but they are condemned to a soul-less existence on earth before their time of passing.
Say not that death is a gift, for this is not so. Say not that death is welcome, for this is not just. For those souls that watch from the realm beyond time’s grasp all wish that they walked on earth and could feel the light. Life is a blessing, it is a joyous gift to be honoured in every moment.
This fact of life’s great beauty and the gift of walking on earth was in many ways our undoing. For in refusing to be medicine men we denied many the gift of a prolonged life, and for this we were hated. We were thought cruel, and it was considered unjust that we would rather let die than intervene. But we saw that the dust of mortal embrace had a law of its own, and that to interfere in the ways set by heaven was an improper use of our knowledge. We left it to lesser minds to stave off death and, when they were unsuccessful, we were blamed. To cheat death is a dangerous thing for the dust of mortal embrace contains within it the moment of your passing, as well as the moment of future rebirth. We could see, for this was our gift, the moment of future rebirth, and it was our knowledge that all these things were as they should be.
Death is a way connected to time, it is a doorway, not an end. Feng Shui Masters held dear every breath that was taken and loved this life in all its dimensions. But we would not thwart a process set in motion by a force greater than existence, that stands beyond time and is unknowable. For the mechanism by which the clock of life and death is set is the unknowable. It was the eternal quest of Feng Shui Masters to discover the means by which the clock was set and the point at which it would cease. We did not succeed, and our quest was naught. And in our folly our knowledge was taken and corrupted, and now you know it as I Ching.
This knowledge is still of great beauty and value, but few see how it should be used. Without this knowledge you now hear, it is only a tool for uncovering fortune.
Feng Shui is a gift for all
What you know as Feng Shui was once called by a different name. When it began we used our knowledge so that people would die in peace and be reborn whole. We were asked to ensure that loved ones would not wander in the mists of the great seas of the undead, and that they would be quickly reunited with their own. This was our craft, and it was for this knowledge that people turned to us. In time, many knew of our knowledge and it became common practice to apply the knowledge that we had created. So our knowledge was then applied to helping the living know peace before death. This was the point at which we taught of the power of nature to bring peace and harmony to the lives of all men. We taught of how the ways of men were perfected through being as one in light, here on earth, before their death. This was new knowledge and it required a new name. You know, as you have been told, that the Wind and the Water are the events that cause man’s suffering and that in order to ease suffering, these elements must be as one. For without nature man is naught, and without man nature ceases to exist. For nature exists only in the eyes of man – it was ever so. There is no unseen without the seen, there is no shadow without the light. Nature is man’s shadow, protector, keeper, balm.
Know that Feng Shui is a gift for all, and not for a chosen few. The start of our new knowledge heralded years of great fortune for Feng Shui Masters as they had a knowledge that was valued. Then this knowledge was taken from us, and became gold in the hands of those misers – the religious men who sold eternal rest as if it were a loaf of bread. They made others believe that their ways and their understanding were superior to our humble offering, for we did not ask for reward. Their knowledge did not grow but their followers did, for man respects only that which he can buy. Many men paid to be told what we told for free, and this made us dangerous. We were driven out, our ways broken, and we never returned to the kingdom we long called home.
These events are important for they are unknown – speak of the danger that lies within knowledge for which man must pay. Pay no heed to religious men for their knowledge is no greater than ours, and many a time it is used against others. For knowledge of Feng Shui is free for all and so, for now, are the gifts of nature. The history of Feng Shui is not important – what is important is that knowledge of love between all men, and how to be as one with light are heard. This is the knowledge that you must present. And with that I bid you farewell.
About the author
Naja Li takes her name from the Li tradition of Feng Shui, in honour of the Masters who have entrusted their knowledge to her. She came across Feng Shui as a discipline whilst studying Chinese Medicine, and has trained with a Master in Melbourne. Sometime last century she read Classics and Biblical Studies at Trinity College Dublin and later encountered Eastern religion at Monash University. As befits someone who has spent most of their adult life thinking about religion, she is a sworn atheist.
In 2016 she started to ‘hear’ aspects of the Li tradition of Feng Shui. Once she accepted the role of one who communicates Li, her access to Feng Shui knowledge around health and sickness, living and dying expanded. She offers no rationale for the practice of clairaudience, or why these teachings may have been made available to her at this time.
