Motivation or Destiny

There has been a hot debate and apparently two struggles in the current BaZi market and that is between the traditionalist and contemporary practitioners. Of course over the years of effort, I am happy to note that the Traditional school has once been given more attention.

I attribute this to a few reasons. Many of my clients actually became my students over time. I think this is one of the strongest testimony of the ability of the Traditional school in particular this Nature’s Way of BaZi, how it has helped them over the years. They usually consult me more than one chart so it is not a fluke shot thing but rather there is repeatability of the result.

This is what the old saying of Actions speaks louder than Words! Need no marketing, they join the classes because they have seen it with their eyes. Same goes for our Feng Shui classes.

A Hope

Second reason, I believed is because the contemporary school leans too much into motivation. It is good to give people hope and I support that but what people need is more than just hope. They need the truth!

Sometimes contemporary falsely blinded themselves. This is the joke of the modern Bazi. Some masters have good Bazi but because he/she is not well versed in traditional Bazi, this made them believed they have bad Bazi but somehow in reality, they are successful. How do even you reconcile this? Motivation or learned new skills!

Thus out of this they conclude that traditional way of Bazi reading is out, with proper motivation and learned skills anyone can succeed big time. If you are reading this and you have joined some of these BaZi schools, ask yourself honestly, how many of those around you or perhaps yourself have changed tremendously over the years?

If what they think is correct, then why do I want to learn BaZi? Just hire a business or success coach and make me successful. Why spend time and money into BaZi then in the end I would still have to motivate myself and acquire some new skills in HOPE of being successful?

What Is The Truth?

Prince Philip The Royal Consort

9 April 2021, the world received the news that Prince Philip the husband of Queen Elizabeth has finally departed at ripe age of 99 years old. Remarkable age.

His life has been rather a unique one when he was born to a royal family of the Greece & Danish court. However his mother Princess Alice was from the British royalty. 1947, Philip became a British subject, renouncing his right to the Greek and Danish thrones and taking his mother’s surname, Mountbatten.

He served in the Royal Navy until his marriage with his distant cousin, then Princess Elizabeth in 1952. After Queen Elizabeth has ascended the throne, he continued his life as a royal consort.

I guess you can read about his life in the internet. Here we ill focus on the art of BaZi, the Nature’s Way of how some of the key events unfolded as per his destiny chart.

What his BaZi says about his life about 4 key aspects of his life.

Let’s go through them one by one.

Wealth & Career

I am often being asked on the topic of Wealth and Career. Are they the same subject?

From my years doing consulting, I can say no although to most people they are closely linked. Let’s define what is meant by Career in Bazi.

Career

Career is basically our work or what we do for a living. We may be a businessman, a CEO, a manager, doctor, engineer, lawyer, politician, police officer, banker, scammer, pimp, dancer, singer, teacher and so on. Thus in Bazi this can be anything ranging from Parallel 比劫, Output 食傷, Wealth 财, Officer 官 or Stamp 印.

From this earnings we create our wealth correct? Yes this sounds very logical.

Wealth

On the other hand, wealth is usually tied to money, gold, shares ownership or assets. It also mean the ability to accumulate wealth or retain wealth. In Bazi, technically it is known as Cai God or Wealth God. Yes literally wealth god 财神.

The wealth can be further defined as Zheng Cai 正财or Proper Wealth and Pian Cai 偏财 or Alternative Wealth. It basically tells us the way we gather wealth. However the definition is very wide and not limited to legal or illegal money or earnings.

In the old days, things were simple and easy to define. Nowadays due to stress and lifestyle desires some people take up 2 jobs or perhaps a job with one side gig like share investing, bitcoin, a part time professional gambler, gym instructor, painter etc.

I remember a client who eventually became my student, once showed me the Bazi and ask me or rather you can say test me, how do you see my wealth?

Useful God Technique

As you know, Traditional BaZi school emphasize Useful God Method. This useful god is not some god that we pray to, it is just an expression of good or auspicious energy.

Traditional BaZi

The new age Bazi or the Contemporary Bazi is much simpler and it is aligned to modern motivation system that string on human common logic. However, logic it is, life is sometimes beyond common logic especially when it comes to the subject of LIFE.

A common tool in contemporary system is profiling. Very much like how a psychological study of human behaviour.

Some students are still confused difference between Traditional Bazi over Contemporary Bazi. Originally there was only 1 but due to marketing and dilution of the knowledge a newer version was born. Let me illustrate based on a real case.

Once a person came to me to learn another subject on Chinese metaphysics but as we spoke it somehow got related to the subject of Bazi. Since this person had learned contemporary Bazi online but still could not understand own Bazi and the destiny, the sense of frustration naturally sets in. After class, I told this person to show me the Bazi so I may guide or give some tips since this person is also my student (not on Bazi subject) and to the benefit of my 2 other Bazi students.

Only Clarity can lead us to the Right path via Traditional Bazi.

Banker’s Destiny

Today I want to talk about the Bazi of one of the two remaining Chinese bankers in Malaysia and that is Tan Sri Teh Hong Piow of Public Bank.

Despite the Covid Pandemic and 6 months government moratorium on loans he has managed to add to the coffers a handsome amount and moved up the Forbes ranking. Can this be seen from Bazi?

The natal chart or BaZi chart is the key to a successful life even if you don’t know Feng Shui. It tells us the capacity of our destiny versus you only need to belief in one self in order to succeed.

Hour unknown.

BaZi , Strategy And Date Activation

Bazi is one of the major Five Arts in Chinese Metaphysics under the destiny banner. The others are physiognomy, medicine, mountain and divination. The sages of old should be commended for their ingenious creation and bannering the Five Arts as a tool to help us living a more holistic, fulfilling and hopefully a harmonious life.  

Destiny – whether it is Bazi or Zi Wei Dou Shu (ZWDS) or any similar arts for providing an overall view of our life mission, capacity and up and downs in our life journeys. 

Physiognomy – example,  Feng Shui to help us in tapping the right energy from the universe that can benefit our well being like a good health.  

Mountain – that includes chi kung and martial art exercise to keep us in healthy and fit condition physically  

Medicine – involve the likes of acupuncture, herbal treatment to balance our health, promoting healing in our quest for a healthy body and graceful aging process 

And finally, Divination – as a tool to guide us in times where we need to face the unknown and requiring guidance 

If we review the Five Arts all as a unit together, you will notice a similarity in the structure of the arts despite different purposes. That is, they share the same basics, philosophy that defines the Chinese culture and the concept of harmony and balance in life.  

In modern time, the art has been sub divided into additional components, including utilising divination or destiny art for Feng Shui purposes. And some even promoted a sub system of Date selection/ activation for day to day activities.

Talent Meeting Timing

Winnie Hsin 辛曉琪 is a Taiwanese singer who shot into fame at a much late age for a singer. She became famous because of one song 味道 (Scent) in 1994. Ever since then her singing career life was transformed.

She is well known for her clear and high pitch voice. If you listen to her song below you will agree that she has pretty good voice. To be a famous singer you ought to have a talent and it may it be a good voice, dancing skill and couple with a good look. Otherwise it will be just another William Hung.

So was Destiny made at birth or learned along the years? Then you have to think about voice & looks, are these qualities in born thing or can be made?. This is where I disagree with Contemporary Bazi school that destiny can be made by simply taking actions and being positive. I am not saying they don’t matter but rather over rated like a miracle pill. An unrealistic hope is like a dead end tunnel.

In 1994 she was already 31 when she got her fame. For most singers in Taiwan back then it is considered a late boomer in the industry. How come a person with a considerable good voice did not make it earlier if just by working hard and being positive could have not done the job? Lingering behind is the work of Destiny or rather in her case the Major Luck cycle.

Below is her BaZi Chart and Major Luck Cycles.
