Have you ever had one of those days where everything seemed to come crashing down over your ears? I certainly have had my share of these moments. My fall back position used to always reason in the end that, “I will try harder. I will work harder. I will pay more attention.” Finally, after years of neglect- I decided to take the help and advice from my grandmother, my parents, my uncles and aunts and my tribal elders. In addition, I have actually chosen to listen to the very suggestions and advice I pass onto to my family, friends, patients, to the not-so-nice people and complete strangers alike. Yet, on a day like today, I still relate to Boxer, the Horse in the epic novel, Animal Farm.
Time is the Enemy. We seem not to have enough of it. If you feel like you are stuck and you do not have enough time for coffee, (or your organically grown all healthy morning drink), HOW will you have enough time to seriously ponder your purpose in life? In order to accomplish this goal, you need to know your own personal BaZi Suan Ming. The BaZi Suan Ming is an important tool for success in health, love, wellness, relationships, wealth and career.
These days it seems like I am hearing the same record (or CD or nano ipod) play the same loop over and over. Class warfare. Racial hatred. Gender discrimination. Howard Zinn’s book being banned once again in several states, (this time at the university level.) Now, don’t get me wrong: It’s not that I think the villains are lurking around every corner.
They just found out that their BaZi “consultant” is a hack.
I decided to turn my life around in order to understand a deeper sense of human nature and our interaction with nature itself. My training as a “real” medicine man, a Curandero, and as a traditional healer in my family’s lineage only provides a door way to explore this subject matter.
There is an old Apache saying that says “The hardest thing to do in life is to know yourself.” Understanding your inner self will create a successful life regardless of the endeavor. In the BaZi, knowing yourself is as important as knowing others. If you truly understand yourself, you have a better ability to understand those around you.
