Singing Legend Sam Hui

In the wake of the suicide case of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain just last 2 weeks, it makes me think, why do people choose to go this path of taking one’s own life. They have fame, success, money and fans, yet they are not happy. It was then I remembered this song 浪子心聲 (Heart of a Loafer) by the evergreen Cantopop singer, composer, musician and also actor, Sam Hui.

Undeniably I grew up with his songs and I have to admit I am one of his fans. Now that I have gained good knowledge in the art of Bazi, I am very much interested to see if its true to what I believed and what he has sung in one of this best hit song, 浪子心聲 released in 1976. In this song there is chorus 命裡有時終須有 命裡無時莫強求.

He was born in Canton, China and he started his career at the age of 20 and his popularity grew in the peak around the 70’s and early 80’s. Till today his song is still very popular among many Cantonese speaking people. He writes his own song, lyrics it and even sang them. Not many have this type of talent. After getting popular, he ventured and into films and made a few movies together with his brother Micheal and Ricky Hui. Unfortunately, Ricky the younger brother left couple of years ago.

Till today he is still singing and occasionally puts up a concert around the world.

Enjoy his song below:

This song was composed by him and Peter Li, lyrics written by him and of course sung by him as well.

難分真與假 人面多險詐 幾許有共享榮華 簷畔水滴不分差
無知井裡蛙 徒望添聲價 空得意目光如麻 誰料金屋變敗瓦

命裡有時終須有 命裡無時莫強求

雷聲風雨打 何用多驚怕 心公正白璧無瑕 行善積德最樂也
人比海裡沙 毋用多牽掛 君可見漫天落霞 名利息間似霧化

Obama vs Romney

As we all know, Obama just won the presidential election again.  While the topic of the presidential election is still hot, let us take a look at both the candidates’ Bazi chart and see what they say.  What makes Obama win and not Romney?  As the President of the United States, the person heralds great authority, status and position.  Hence, we shall evaluate the quality of the Power stars, i.e. the Direct Officer star and the 7 Killings star in their chart.

Obama

He is a strong Ji Day Master with Friend Structure, sitting on Si (Bing is one of Ji’s noble elements).  Hence his wife is of great help to him and a significant supporter.  His other noble element is Jia Wood (his Direct Officer star) and it is located at his Hour Pillar, indicating his career is good which can give him power and status.   And this Jia Wood is sitting on Wu, his Rob Wealth star.  Though Jia sitting on Wu is overall not an excellent pillar, it is nevertheless also not a poor pillar either, because Wood no matter what still needs Earth to be around for support.   His Year Stem of Xin (Eating God) is countering Yi (7 Killing) in the Month Stem.  This is being translated into the Day Master using his intelligence to control his power, as both stars are equally strong and of good quality, having roots respectively.

Obama won his first presidential election during his Xin Mao Pillar (Eating God-7 Killing Pillar).   This is the pillar of intelligence with power, having his 7 Killing star firmly rooted.   Due to the clash, it is an indication that this power doesn’t bring glory, but challenges and obstructions instead.

He is currently entering into a Geng Yin Pillar, where he again won the presidential election the second time around.  Once he entered this pillar, his Jia Wood (Direct Officer star) in his chart is being rooted and strong, giving him a strong foundation to hold on to his power.   Jia Wood is also his noble element and needs Geng Metal (Hurting Officer) to chop to make his Jia Wood useful and noble.  Hence, we can say that this pillar is in fact great for him, as compared to Xin Mao pillar.  This pillar will bring him great glory and much influence.

Romney

He is a weak Geng Day Master with Direct Wealth Structure, sitting on Yin (Jia Wood is Geng Metal’s favorable element), so we can conclude that his wife is quite supportive of him.  Unlike Obama whose noble elements are very close to him, Romney has no noble element in his Hour Pillar, his career palace.  His noble element of Ding Fire is in the Year Stem, and it is too far to ask for support, and is also involved in countering situation with Gui Water (Hurting Officer) in the Month Stem.  Direct Officer does not want to see Hurting Officer next to him as this compromised the quality of the Direct Officer, making it questionable.

His current luck pillar is Bing Shen (7 Killings-Friend Pillar).  With Bing Shen, his 7 Killings stars become rooted and strong, and the weak Geng Day Master also becomes rooted in Shen.   So, this may indicate potentiality for Romney to win as his power element is strong in this pillar as well.  But bear in mind, Geng Metal Day Master favors Ding Fire more than Bing Fire, as Geng Metal needs Ding Fire to forge to make it useful and noble.   With Bing Fire, it’s more likely the scorching Sun will burn the Geng Metal more than anything else, resulting in his loss.

The Results ?

Of course, in both charts, there are interactions of control, clash and combination going on in the luck pillar, and we will not go into details and elaborate on those.  Suffice to say, it is more likely the Noble Elements of the Power star determines the winner.   Obama has beautiful and usable Noble Element of Direct Officer in Jia Wood, which is also his Useful God; whereas Romney’s 7 Killing star in Bing Fire is not his Noble Element and also not usable to the Day Master.

Noble Elements…

In the study of Bazi or Phat Chee, the correct understanding of a person’s life lies in the correct understanding of nature.  After all, isn’t life all about living in harmony with nature?

The same goes in the study of Bazi, is to first understand what is Nature all about & the interaction of elements of Nature.

Just like we have 4 seasons, night and day, rain and draught, windy and storms, in the study of any Chinese Metaphysics, there are 5 elements that we always refer to.  They are Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood because the Chinese believe the world is largely made of these 5 elements.  They spent a lot time trying to understand the building blocks of these 5 elements and how they produce, control and deplete each other.

From here, they begin to understand what is the meaning of Prospering in nature and thus translated it into the art of Bazi which lead to the discovery of Noble Elements.

Briefly, I try to explain what are Noble elements.  In the element of wood, there are the Yang wood which we call it Jia [甲] and Yin wood or soft wood which we call it Yi [乙].

Yi’s noble element is Jia.  Why?  Small plants cannot grow and flourish well without depending on the Hard wood or big tree in this case.

Trees provide them the shade, the trunk for them to climb, the leaves to fertilize the soil, provide them stable grounds and much more.

 With the correct understanding of nature and each of its corresponding noble elements, then one can read  Bazi more correctly.

So what we are looking for is a balanced Nature which is reflected in your Bazi but not balanced of elements. Most schools have this wrong conception that if your Bazi is missing 1 element then your Bazi is no good. This is not true at all.

Then there are other schools that weighs on the balance of elements. For example, if your Bazi is too strong in Earth, they will recommend that you weaken it using Metal or use Wood to control Earth.  Again, this is a major misconception in Bazi reading.  Analysing destiny using this method can cause flaws in Bazi reading. Can Earth produce Metal? Is this the correct understanding of nature’s workings?  Which wood is good in controlling which Earth and at the same time makes it useful?

If one understands nature and its ultimate goal, one shall understand life and have the correct way in destiny analysis.
