修福惜福Cultivate and Treasure Your Merits
There were many after thoughts and feelings recently on my recent sessions of Feng Shui audits, destiny analysis and teaching lessons. Well, let me first share with you my after thoughts from my Feng Shui audits! A couple engaged me to evaluate the locations of several shop lots for their business, based on the suitability of their birth charts. I was hoping that before their lives enter into the ‘sunset’ phase, they would get to do more good in their line of work than now. However, after viewing the 3 different locations, not only did they have poor Feng Shui, it was evident that the merit level of this couple was low. What Buddha has taught us, that the power of Karma is inexplicable, was well and truly reflected in this episode.
Destiny analysis can be categorised them into 2 components: a macro and comprehensive analysis of your whole life and a detailed breakdown of your 12-monthly luck cycle in a particular year. What I felt deeply in this aspect is some people are almost at the end of the road but he or she still obstinately hangs on to their self-deceiving unwholesome thoughts and actions without any remorse or repent. They are indolent and totally disregarded my advice to them, choosing to remain in Darkness rather than to walk on the Path of Light. It will be too late if they do not pull up their socks now, as they will end up just like how I had predicted they would be. If that is the case, why waste time and money to seek my advice? Why do they seek sufferings instead of happiness? This is ignorance indeed. They have to reap what they sow.
Speaking about my Dharama lessons, I have observed the willful transgression of the students. For my current batch of students, I focus my teachings on the precepts and decorum, with the aim of inculcating the right morals in them. Having the right mindset will translate into correct actions and this will set them on the path towards Enlightenment and liberation from mortal sufferings. Alas, they are still very much unrepentant and persistent in their old ways of doing things. They lack the correct mindset and spirit in learning the Dharma and it is very dangerous if this continues, as they may well be on the path of the Devil, instead of the Dharma. Beware!
It is true that there are many people out there who pine day and night to meet a highly attained master to lead them out of this cycle of suffering, but they never get to meet one even after their hair turn white. Now you have found one such master and yet you pushed him away. It is evident how much merits you truly have. Regardless of your merits, heed my advice to cultivate diligently and treasure your merits. As the Chinese saying goes “Once you have passed this village, you may not find what you are looking for in the next one.”
Take care, my friend.
