Can we change our destiny or fate?
It might sound like a cliche but the answer is “yes” and “no”.
Yes, by improving our personality, education, skill, mind-set, attitude and hard work. But Chinese birth reading is not one of them. Chinese birth reading or bazi merely raise our awareness and point us to the right direction but not inducing “change” itself. Rewriting our own destiny can only come from us.
To quote Einstein “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. What an awesome quote, how can one expect a different result in life by doing the same thing over and over again.
No, because certain generic traits, inclinations are fixed by our Birth Structure and influenced by “10-years luck pillar” like “DNA”. For instance through research, doctors admitted that a number of critical illnesses is mainly caused by genetics and family history.
To believe or Not to believe in birth destiny
Let’s assume Mr. A does not believed in fate or destiny. He rely on hard work, education, and experience to reach his goals. This is great except that he maybe heading the wrong direction without understanding his birth profile and future.
On the other extreme Mr. B is obsessed with Chinese bazi reading and feng shui. He consulted many Bazi Masters to guide him. All may or may not give him the right advice. This may end up badly if he let the advisement dictate his life. Take for instance, if something bad happen, he would blame it on his birth profile or luck pillars instead of looking at himself first!
Make the Best out of your Birth Profile
The concept of “birth reading” is to know who your really are, make necessary adjustments and follow-through with chain of actions. So Bazi reading gives you an added perspective to take the best course of action. The “change” in your life can only happen through your own actions. The job of a good bazi master is to explain your strengths and let you know factors that will affect your future. i have a client that will help you to understand what i am getting at.
i was engaged by this lady to feng shui her Japanese restaurant. Her business was losing money for more than one year so she invited me over. After doing the feng shui remedies i cross examine her birth profile and asked, “why did you start this business? She answered “to help my partner”. i probe further, “do you have interest in this venture”? She answered “No” (as i suspected). She confirmed my reading of her birth chart. Her bazi reveals that she is a “working professional”, not suited as an entrepreneur. Her birth traits are risk-averse, systematic, good in management, hardworking and goal-getter. She will do well in the Corporate world. i advised her that once she recovered her losses, consider closing the business. After 3 years, she contacted me for lunch and told me that she followed my advice and now promoted as regional director. The beauty of bazi reading is awareness and take the right course of action.
Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity
This Chinese wisdom summarize it all:
命由天定，birth profile is granted by God (heaven) 运由己造，create your own-luck/destiny 预知运势, recognize your luck directions 积极面对, face it positively 改善自身, improve oneself 提升生活 thereby improving your life！
Lucky people generate their own good fortune via four basic principles. They consistently horn their craft by creating and noticing opportunities, make decisions objectively by focusing on their goals and intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies through positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.
