Good Chi

A bunch of us are at Rainbow Lodge in the shadow of Mt. Si. The Chinese would say we are in a very auspicious spot on Earth, in between a mountain and a river. When I visited China I saw that all of the Emperor’s palaces had hills behind them. I thought the builders had selected the location based on the hills and streams. Not so. Beijing is flat so the hills were built and streams dug out. We don’t have to go that extreme here in the Northwest. Chi flows freely from mountains to water with plenty of land for us to build on in between.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
