When I was 6 years old the Republic of China retreated to Taiwan and the People's Republic of China was established. The city of Canton was bombed by airplanes from Taiwan and my family moved to a small village outside Canton. There I spent two years running on the mountains bare-footed, catching butterflies on the mountains and small crabs by the river. At night, I watched the stars blinking on the dark sky. These two years helped me understand Feng Shui easily later.
When I teach the Form School today, I always ask my students to spend time to watch real mountains and rivers. Classroom teaching can only be guidelines. No teacher can be better than Heaven and Earth.
