Design Dilemma: Beds in front of windows

I have a wee problem. I just moved into my new space, right? Well, the upstairs bedroom is more of a rectangle in shape. and one wall is almost completely doors (I have two small closets on the same side as the entrance to the room) with a bathroom on the next wall, kitty corner. Kitty corner to that wall, there are two large windows (the only windows in the room) and then an empty wall kitty corner to them. So, as my instincts told me, I put my mattress (it's still on the floor. Sigh.) on that empty wall. But then, I started reading my feng shui book. And it's not good to have your bed perpendicular to the entrance of the room, as the flow of energy goes straight over your bed, which is supposed to be a place for rest and relaxation. Not an energy orgy. So, I've got a dilemma on my hands. The only other place I would feel comfortable moving my bed is to right smack dab in front of the windows.

HOWEVER,
it's also bad feng shui and, from what I've been told, bad design to put a bed in front of a window. Although, the energy passing out the window isn't nearly as much as that entrance to the room.... I've been thinking about doing it. There's no way I'd put my bed on the wall with the bathroom door on it (it's supposed to be the worst feng shui position) because the toilet is a giant suck-hole (yes, that's my professional term for it) of energy and would be worse that putting it next to the door. Now you can see my dilemma. My huge huge dilemma, right? 

So, tell me what you think. Yeah or neah on the bed in front of the window idea?

I don't know, your pictures give many good examples of beds in front of windows that work. Why not go for it!

Try out both spots for a week and decide which spot gives you the best rest

I've had my bed in front of a window in the last three apartments I've lived in. If you get the right kind of curtains it makes it look like part of the bed and can be really gorgeous
