Learning Some Valuable Lessons from A Reader and A Taxi Driver

Published Disyembre 5, 2013 by jptan2012

This has been a very good week for me. Aside from meeting another reader in person, I learned some valuable lessons.Lessons Learned

First, getting to meet one of my readers is really an experience that I value. It makes maintaining this blog so much worth it. This week I got the opportunity to meet a reader who happens to be a Filipino who lives in the US.

BM is a reader who contacted me about a year ago. Since she lives in the states, our communication has been limited to exchanging emails. However, she’s now in Manila for a short vacation and to take care of some documents.

I got the chance to meet BM and she requested me to read her Bazi. I don’t normally accept Bazi or Paht Chee readings these days. However, since BM is somebody who has contacted me about a year ago, I decided to take on her request. I’m glad I did!

BM is a person who doesn’t have any direct wealth. Meaning, she has every reason to become poor. She will never have any money that she’ll get out of luck or from her parents. However, her chart shows that while they may be some bumps along the road, she is destined to live a comfortable life in her old age. This is because BM works like a horse. She really works hard, and her chart shows how hard working she is. In fact, while she’ll definitely demure from the reality that she now has a good life, at least, so much better than most people, she has a comfortable life now because of how hard she worked for it.

I’m sharing this because I believe there’s a valuable lesson that each one of us can learn from her chart. Sometimes, fate is no match with our dedication and hard work. I think this is one of the important lessons I can impart to my readers. Let’s all learn from BM. A hardworking woman who is destined to have a good life.

Another valuable lesson that I learned this week is from a Taxi driver.

The other day, I was a little irritated that my driver got delayed. Since I have to rush to a meeting, I decided to take a cab. Little did I know that I’d learn a valuable lesson from a Taxi driver.

The driver strikes me as somebody who is overly cheerful. What’s more, unlike other taxi or cab drivers, he seem to notice only good things on the road, something that is really quite difficult to do if you drive on the streets of Manila. However, he seems to notice only the good things, like the simple thing that a boy was helping his grandmother (I’m just assuming this that they’re grandmother and grandson) cross the street. The drive said that it’s nice to see young ones still know how to take care of their elder and he seem so happy about it. Or like the homeless guy who takes care of his dog, to which he said that it’s really great that some people are so caring that even they don’t have anything they’re still willing to share whatever they have to another living thing. The guy he was referring to is a guy I see everyday and I haven’t thought of it that way. When I got to my destination, I gave him a twenty pesos tip. He again cheerfully expressed his gratitude and thanks me and said that it will add to his education fund for his children. Twenty pesos is a small amount, it’s a little less than US$0.50, and there was no sarcasm in his voice, he was really very appreciative. Because of that I gave him a bigger amount, a little bigger than my cab fare.

Again, I learned a valuable lesson. With all the good luck I’ve been receiving, I sometimes forget to be thankful with the little things that I get everyday.

Hard work, a grateful heart, and a cheerful predisposition are some of the most important Feng Shui charm or cure one can have in life. Maybe I’m pushing it a little, but maybe it is almost as good as having the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

NOTE: For those who haven’t received their Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras please email me again with the SUBJECT: FDRM. Have been really busy the past few weeks and my file got really disorganized. Apologies for this.

In – Laws Causing Marital Problems and Taking Over Household

Published Disyembre 5, 2013 by jptan2012

A few months ago, a friend called me to ask for help. His sister is starting to have marital problems since her mother – in – law and sister – in – law moved in with them.

LL is a 34-year-old happily married woman with 2 kids – a girl and a boy. According to LL, life has been good to her and life was almost perfect. However, things started to change when her mother – in – law and unmarried sister – in – law started living with them.Monster-In-Law_6

Her mother – in – law and sister – in – law used to have a house of their own, however, when LL’s father – in – law passed away, LL thought she should invite them to live with them because their house is in a seedy part of the city. She was the one who talked to her husband about this but little did she know that this would start their problem.

Like a typical Chinese LL gave her mother – in – law and sister – in – law who is older than her husband the respect of an elder in the family. Everything seems to be fine in the beginning but things gradually became bad from good.

LL won’t be able to tell when it did start happening, but it seems to be a gradual thing that started to creep in to their life. Maybe because they have nothing else to do both mother – in – law and sister – in – law has nothing else to do, they started to meddle with LL’s house. They would decide what should be eaten for dinner and then they started arranging the furniture. Soon they started meddling with the affairs of LL’s family.

To be fair to LL’s husband, he did try to manage his mother and sister, however, things has gotten really bad already that they seem to be out – of – control and it has started to affect LL’s relationship with her husband. Out of desperation, LL asked her brother to call me and help fix the problem.

I, when LL’s in – laws were out of the house went there. LL was there with her husband; this for me is a good sign, because it signifies that they both acknowledge the problem and wants a solution for it. The first thing I notice is the LL’s mother – in –law and sister –in – law both occupies rooms that has the best Chi. This is not exactly bad, but usually the best chi should be given to the head or leader of the family. In this case, while they’re older than LL and her husband, it is still LL’s husband and LL that should be considered as the head of the family. The only solution I find here is for them to switch rooms.

Switching rooms is the only alternative because aside from the fact that LL’s in – laws has the room that has the best chi in the house, they also occupied the patriarchal sector of the house, thus empowering to head the household.

LL and her husband had to make up stories to switch rooms. But the good news is several months after they’ve switched rooms; LL reports that things are so much better.
