Are cut flowers bad for your Chi? Absolutely not! Some people say cut flowers are dead therefore bad for the Chi. This is untrue. First, cut flowers are not more dead than wood furniture that are made of dead trees, or cloths that are made of dead cotton or food that are made of dead plants and animals. It is certainly less dead than all the synthetic materials that are made of oil which is dead for million of years. If we get rid of everything that is dead, we will be back to bronze age if not stone age.
I-Ching, the book of change, told us about balance in life. What ever is alive will die some day. There is no need to be afraid of death or dead material. It is just part of nature. The importance is to live well while YOU are alive.
