Up on campus there is a street named, Heavenly Lane. A number of important movement and wealthy people early built ‘perfect vastu’ homes there on Heavenly Lane. The joke is, “They don’t call it ‘Heavenly Lane’ without reason..”, as some number of those people came to pretty quickly die off or have personal calamity living in their perfect vastu. There is a litany of communal story around people and businesses going bankrupt or personally dissolving in building their perfect vastu. .. ‘fortune creating’ poverty, in seeds of 'fear-creating' at the time didn’t he really say, “..Run from your vastu house as if it is on fire”. An authority, on this TM communal angst about vastu, comments that the problem they have is that the part of vastu they use is ‘temple vastu’, for temple construction. These buildings are not meant to live and work in. Temple vastu brings other forces into play (activates) that are not necessarily or inherently protective from life’s adversity. The assertions of temple vastu are not necessarily for living, they are for temples. That possibly explains some of what is anecdotal in the community about vastu.. run as if your house is on fire!
Um... I was being snarky. Petra was very ill for two and half years and died in May, at age 54. And, living in vastu hasn't prevented me from having my own chronic health issues. Bottom line: no one gets out of here alive. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_...@yahoo.com> wrote : Alex, That's nice to hear. I like to live in a vastu home, but here in SF, there is none. My house though is facing the east direction. So, it's the best available that I can get in this city. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : Good link. Very clear. It is stunning to think of the housing stock that ‘Vastu’ built here in Fairfield, Iowa and on campus the last few years that are built only to standards of energy efficiency of the last century. emily.mae50 writes: This is an interesting site: https://www.nachi.org/building-orientation-optimum-energy.htm?loadbetadesign=0 https://www.nachi.org/building-orientation-optimum-energy.htm?loadbetadesign=0 ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <emily.ma...@yahoo.com> wrote : It isn't.

Petra and I are both enjoying perfect health and immortality, and we owe it all to this house. WRT solar efficiency, it has always bothered me that the emphasis is completely focused on gathering vibrational woo from the east, even if it means the structure will bake to a crisp in summer and gather no solar heat at all in winter. How is that considered in tune with Nature? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote : Doug, Do you stay in a vastu home?

In early 20th Century Fairfield, Iowa homes were being built in the Prairie style with roof lines and eves that were scaled to let winter sunshine into homes and then keep summer sunshine out. Design accounting for solar orientation seemed to go away with newer mechanical heating and cooling in new home building after WWII.. in the ranch home etc. Efficiency in energy design came back with tightened energy supplies in the 1970's. In the 1980's a number of homes built by meditators were efficient super insulated and solar, in the direction of the zero-net design today. Sthapatya ved house design in Fairfield of the 2000’s seemed mostly to throw solar orientation efficiency to the wind. There is a subdivision of 40 homes going up in Fairfield that is SV design. Curious to see if they have zero-net features. Design without optimizing energy efficiency is such old design. California homes aren't built for long term low temps but more for staying cool in summer. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <noozguru@...> wrote : I've seen different house solar heating units. Which one are you talking about? I would think for most days those would work here. Most I looked at were DIY and were more work than I wanted to do. I have the heating running at 62 degrees and boost it if it rains to keep dampness down. At nights in the living room I use a space heater. On 01/26/2017 01:30 PM, jr_esq@... mailto:jr_esq@...

Actually I can wait. And I keep the house at 62 degrees most of the time. California homes aren't built for long term low temps but more for staying cool in summer. That's when they are concerned about electrical consumption. And the cities around here are considering starting their own municipal utilities and dumping PG&E which now has a criminal felony conviction. On 01/26/2017 10:52 AM, jr_esq@... mailto:jr_esq@...
