Does everybody agree on this?
I ask because I am a big fan of flea markets and yard sales, where I find A LOT of my treasures. Anyway, I recently bought a new dagger from a farmer’s market vendor. At places like this, haggling is the name of the game, especially since the same dagger was available a dozen stalls down at a cheaper price AND came with a stand. I got the lady to knock down the price, but then I paid three dollars more than she was asking in order to (hopefully) make up for any insult I caused by wheeling and dealing.
But I wonder – insult to who? To the Gods? The weapon? The vendor?
Personally, I think the taboo is a “guideline” – it all depends. I like to imagine that some Gods would consider bargaining a sacred art form.
Still, I’d really like to hear other opinions. I’ve never asked anyone about this.
2. Another question: Has anybody had any experience blending ritual and/or spellcraft with Feng Shui principles? If so, to what effect?
