Destiny, Thoughts

A New Journey

Have you ever felt like everything you’ve learned or done in your life so far just isn’t enough? You want more, so then you set out in search of it, lost and confused until it finally hits you, that “A-ha!” moment when everything makes some sense.

Knowing what destiny has in store for us is fascinating, really. It’s like finding the treasure map that can change our life from that moment onwards. But what about the past? Have I just been surviving ever since I came to be? Or perhaps I came from a faraway place and this is just one of the steps of my journey.

You may have asked yourself before,  “Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going?” without actually being able to find answers for these questions.

All my life I’ve been searching for answers but unfortunately I never had nor the time nor the patience to actually find them. “Why?” you might ask, simply put, it wasn’t the right moment for it.

Life has a funny way of making you experience the things you have to go through. It’ll throw situations in front of you when you least expect it and you just have to deal with it.
You might often get frustrated, wondering why things never seem to go right. Know that when the time is right, and you learn to follow your own path, the answers you seek will make themselves clear. Only then will the true journey begin.

Ready for the new journey? Let’s go…

It took me a long, long time to understand all the signs that life kept throwing at me throughout my life. Back then I didn’t know any better, but nowadays I realize that the saying “There are no coincidences” is very real. 

Everything that happens in your life, happens for a reason, one that might be unknown to us but a reason nonetheless.
When my LP changed, everything within me changed along with it. I knew change was coming and what could happen eventually. Regardless I had to explore the possibilities. I stopped everything I was doing, including writing these posts and I went on a journey to find the answers I was looking for. It was as if I owed it to myself.

Today I’ve decided to return as it would be a huge mistake, even a waste if I do not share what I’ve learned with the world. So here I am, to begin this newfound journey.

Let’s start by remembering the trinity: Heaven, Earth, and Man. Bazi is the chart from the moment we’re born and provides information about the life of our family and the  hypotheses of specific events in the various fields of our life. 

They are, therefore, predestined hypotheses and represent destiny, Heaven. But if you’ve been paying attention, I’ve mentioned hypotheses and not definite events. This is because what happens in our lives aren’t facts but simply the consequences of our actions. And that explains why people who share the same chart, even twins, rarely ever have the same destiny or life. Why? Well, that would be because they make different choices and their environment can also vary a lot, from the country they’re born in, to the culture or their friends, all of which can influence one’s choices.

Our environment can represent ‘’Earth’’ and it’s possible to understand it better and study it with Feng Shui, 8 Mansions amongst others. The third and last part of the trinity is ‘’Man’’, where our decision making ability indubitably comes into play.

As Feng Shui is an already well known subject, I’ll focus instead on this ‘’Man’’ journey. I get a lot of questions about Bazi and charts, a lot of them focusing on 7K/DO (the relationship issues) and the pair DR/IR – HO/EG (creativity, studies, as well as career area). The concerns are placed in the present, but in reality focus heavily in the future and a lot of the time projecting the past into said future. As if life had an instruction manual we want to decipher in order to find our destiny. Couldn’t be further away from the truth.

Like a wise one once said: 

“Yesterday is history,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
But Today is a gift,
That is why it is called the Present.’’

Thus the future we desperately await for… doesn’t exist! We have to build it today. Every passing minute we’re just adding another stone to our path but that’s it. The future isn’t there yet. Can anyone prove it otherwise?

But it doesn’t end here, as the present quickly becomes the past, and it’s only there to teach us through our victories and defeats. Shouldn’t it be urgent to look at the present and start taking action now so that we can achieve our coveted future?

Let’s exercise and make it an everyday habit:

*What future do I want for me?
*What am I afraid of?
*What can I do Today?

Here are some active examples;

Ex1 – “I want to be healthier and protect myself from illnesses the best I can.”

“I’m afraid of getting sick and not being able to take care of my family. I’m afraid of the pain if I’m sick.”

What I can do right now is to try and understand if I’m on the right course of action when it comes to my health, my diet, if I’m exercising enough,… 

Meaning, I should study a lot. Learn how to take good care of myself and prioritise everything that makes me feel good whether it be in a mental or physical way. Doing things that make me happy, relieving stress and exigency.

It’s already a good start.

Another example: 

Ex2 – “I want to be successful in my professional life. I want to make the difference in the world.”

“I’m afraid of working without a purpose simply to get my paycheck and feel unaccomplished with my life. I’m scared of not being qualified or knowledgeable  enough to achieve the goals I have.”

What I can do today is analyse well the field of work I really enjoy. Halfway there. Next I should learn anything that can relate to it, anywhere from accounting, to managing skills, marketing, stock management and a few other skills. A lot of people mistakenly think that being successful is just opening up a business and then money will come instantly. That adventure most often than not ends up in bankruptcy.

Of course a Bazi chart reading helps in your decision making when it comes to the “Go!” action. But as I’ve mentioned previously, the chart only reveals possibilities, not absolute certainties. Even if I have a strong IW supported by a strong HO/EG I can choose to do nothing and success won’t come, obviously.

Thus as closure:  “Action”!

However, only well thought action that doesn’t harm anyone else. That is very important. We must harm no one in order to achieve success, otherwise it won’t feel as gratifying nor will it mean anything. Or worse, it could come back to bite us instead.

That being said, let’s get to work. Even the smallest of projects, house renovations, pursuing a dream, anything that makes us happy. The motto is to project, study, accomplish and have perseverance as things don’t get themselves done. And not giving up at the first obstacle.

That itself is taking destiny into our own hands!
