Human Efforts Vs Luck Of A Nation (人命好重要)
hear arguments between skeptics and proponent of Feng Shui on which is more
important: human luck or the luck of a nation. While I learnt up Feng Shui, I
am not superstitious for I am only exploring the wisdom of old. From what I
have seen and experienced so far, I think it is fair to say the below:
“Luck of a nation is
not definite, but good human luck rules all.”
what makes human lucky is their ability to make intelligent judgments and take
proactive actions to mitigate or reduce the impact of natural disasters. Of
course, if one failed to perceive dangers around his/her corner, then he/she
could only blame himself/herself.
is a fuzzy art of approximation and it can never give us a definite answer of
what will happen to a nation. For example:
2014 is the
year of horse it is ruled by fire element and indicated by I Ching as “fiery
sky” (which is proving to be true…) and 2015 is the year of wood lamb and
indicated as “windy earth” and there should be some kind of epidemic. Those are
merely predictions that may or may not happen.
human have used their wits to take counter measures for example avoiding war
zones, improving irrigation systems, forbidding open burning etc. Then we have
already saved ourselves plenty of problems…
If we didn’t
make any precautions, then we will (and have already) be shocked by the rude
awakening. And the prediction of ‘fiery sky’ would become true.
the mankind start to take precautions about possible spread of plague in 2015,
possibly brought by wind or flying insects starting now; then we could save a
lot of lives. And the prediction of plague happening becomes not true.
Otherwise the prediction of a plague becomes inevitable and hence true.
bottom line is still up to our ‘luck’ to change the ‘luck’ of a nation. In
order to make some prediction true or untrue, we human must take proactive
action to change our luck and hence the luck of our nation will also change
accordingly. Having said so, how many people can really change their luck and
the luck of their nations?
