Lets have something light today, destiny … after so many millennium … does it still work ? This is often a question that all practitioner will come across one point or another. After doing substantial number of consultation, those that progress forward with their chart boil down to a simple word of choice.
In the olden day, we have limited choice. If our father is born a fisherman, we will die as a fisherman and our son will be a fisherman. The chances of you ever changing career is non existence … alternative is join the never ending war as a soldier. Now, you can be anything you like, as long as you have the right learning attitude. You can surely find a course to be a baker or in some odd case, like me, join the metaphysic industry.
There is typically 3 method to approach your BaZi destiny, the older style like to focus on one style. Just imagine you are in a constant state of war where killing is a norm and one dynasty just get replace by another overnight … wouldn’t peace be what you wish for? Hence the balance method was deploy and become a practicing default.
Since you are in a modern world where most of us have not even experience a single second of war (watching TV don’t count). We all should be a little more aware that there is now real choice that you should practice. Destiny don’t run your life, you choose with the guidance of destiny.
Typical method 1 : Path of wealth
This happen to be the simpler method as you just need to identify your wealth element and pursue a career in that industry. The caveat is that most people mistaken wealth as money (maybe because its cooler to label it a wealth instead of hardwork). In the olden day, a farmer that farm more, a fisherman that fish more and a trader that trade more have more produce to sell and hence accumulate more money. Its the hardwork that result in you able to exchange for more stuff. For an employee, this method is a little counter productive as your salary is fix no matter how much you produce. So, blindly chasing wealth is not a good method for all … you will just end up having more work to do.
Typical method 2 : Path of progress
This method is not too widely used as it was believe that only certain chart people can pull it off (super vibrant / follower chart). We chase after the strongest element (not to be mistaken with strong DayMaster) in our chart and place our self in that particular element industry. This method is uncomfortable as it go against the mighty comfort zone. You would need to quickly learn several skill just to balance yourself on this bike that is going down hill. You will eventually pull yourself far ahead of other and become so in demand that you are the only copy available.
Typical method 3 : Path of fulfillment
This method result in a feeling that you have done something to the world … you have contributed. Its the old method of balancing your chart. Here you are not looking for progress or money but a state where you can assist other in attaining their potential. When you are not moving forward you have time to observe other. When you are detach from the hustle and bustle of life, you can think. Its a noble path which we will choose once we reach a certain age.
Although most of us do not have war to fight but there is still a battle that we fought everyday with the society. Society expect you to have a certain level of progress and wealth. While its cool to want to be noble and help other … bill still need to be pay and the more you need to pay they higher you would need to progress.
You want to attain wealth, attain progress or attain balance, its a choice and its a choice that you have to make in different point of your life. You don’t only have one destiny, as destiny is build upon and not decided by.
