Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher born in the year 540 BC, is the one credited for the phrase “change is the only constant”, which inspired me to write this article. I assume that when he made that statement he was following the steps of the Chinese sages who developed the I-Ching, known in English as the Book of Changes, which resulted from the observation and interpretation of the yin and yang forces in the universe that give shape to everything that exists.
Today, 2000+ years later, all cultures agree with Heraclitus, and with the Chinese sages, regarding change. The Chinese sages, following the identification of yin and yang, also identified that the energy around us changes every hour, every day, every month and specially every year on February 4th, which is the first day of the Chinese solar calendar used in Chinese metaphysics.
The interaction of that constantly changing energy with your own energy is what governs your path in life. If the energy around you or coming your way is favorable, no matter how bad you behave, most likely you don’t get caught. On the other side, if the energy around you or coming your way is unfavorable, even if you behave, any little mistake gets you in trouble.
This is why even in the worst economic times, some people do very good, and even in the best economic times some people lose everything. The same thing happens with love or with health: For instance, as good as it is to be in love, not everybody who is in love is happy; or as bad as it is to smoke cigarettes, not everybody that smokes cigarettes dies from lung disease.
It all depends on how the energy coming your way interacts with your own energy. This is revealed through #ChineseAstrology and #FengShui and it needs to be assessed at least once a year because as written above, the energy is constantly changing.
Don’t let fortune or misfortune get you by surprise. Find out ahead of time the quality of energy that is coming your way and act accordingly.
