Last night, in my dream, I met an old man whom I might have seen in pictures of ancient books. He smiled at me, "Yang Gong, during his retirement, watched the yin and yang qi 楊公飬老看雌雄 Hahaha!" I approached him and bowed. He held my hand and said, "You have been thinking of me and that is why I come to meet you." I opened my mouth but could not say anything.
He padded my shoulder and said, "I know you are upset with people using my name to charge suckers obscene amount of money for something rubbish." I looked at him and wondered how did he know all this.
"Well, take it easy," he continued, "Only stupid people are cheated and they deserve to be victims. Don't worry about the good and clever people."
I could not talk but in my mind I wanted to ask why he was not worried about these people smearing his name by claiming to be his lineage holders.
"Never mind," He said in a calm voice, "people will know that my nick name is Yang Saving the Poor and not Yang Billionaire Manufacturer. I used Feng Shui to help the poor people to benefit from the stars so that they gained confidence and skill to make a living. This is what Feng Shui is about. It does not bring tremendous wealth to people without their honesty and effort."
I was about to ask him about whether it is true that the Emperors' tombs in the Song, Ming and Qing Dynasties were designed according to his teaching. He smiled and said, "Good Feng Shui is for the living. If a grave site has good Feng Shui, it needs the descendants to frequent the site and bathe in the qi to get the benefit. That is the core theory of my teaching. All the imperial graves and palaces were not built according to my Feng Shui technique. It is easy to see how each Dynasty deteriorated rapidly after the first few emperors."
I was like seeing lightning and thunder in my mind and woke up. Please share my dream and the true teaching of Yang Gong.
