The Cheese Stands Alone

What brings us closer to our own dream?  Religion? Great Sex? A really great piece of chocolate?  I have friends that would respond that there is no difference between any of the above.  All joking aside, some would say that life is a lot of work and hopefully filled with some “good luck.”  In the BaZi Suan Ming there are many opportunities to help your self during times of stress, crisis and out right loneliness. How do you know you are in your dream? What makes you think  things may not change- for better or worse?  We live in a world where (it turns out) Area 51 exists, people can “hack” into your car while you are driving, a low fat diet early in childhood will make you fat later in life and John Lennon may come back from the dead.

Who’s The Boss?

It’s that time of the week. You drive up to work and you find the construction project for the new supermarket store next door has somehow managed to ‘add a little of their own’ construction creativity- by ripping the phone line, power line, siding and gutters that are attached to the very office space you ply your trade, day in and day out.

“Thank you Mr. PGE Man!”

Since the construction project next door was originally to begin in 2005, I cannot blame the guys for wanting to be in a hurry.  However, when you eventually are on a first name basis with the foreman of the project, the Feng Shui making for this Ju Ju Man can’t be good…

Do You See the Light? BaZi in the Workplace

BaZi Blues Brothers

Well, Do You?

Have you ever gotten so frustrated that as you drive into work, your body tenses up more and more?  Damn. And you know it’s ‘the job.’  This can stem from office politics, the notion of ‘bullying’ in the workplace, or the many forms of workplace intimidation.  What typically emerges are deep-seated patterns that have been embedded in us before we ever started working at the said ‘hell hole.’  If you are lucky enough to be working and this kind of situation has an ongoing theme in your life, there are several tools I have learned from both ‘sides’ of the coin as a worker and as a so-called ‘boss.’  What this means for you is to utilize the BaZi Suan Ming for workplace navigation. This is how.

Don’t Slap the Crying Baby

Leave it to us Americans to screw up an entire indigenous healing system and try to make it relevant only in terms of finding parking spaces and keeping ourselves absolved of any accountability.  Who do we think we are?  Respect the tradition, keep the peace and find all the amazing, wise and thoughtful things within nature and ourselves.   Do not add insult to injury. Do not make things worse.  Don’t Slap the Crying Baby. We need to understand the underpinnings of ancient wisdom bestowed upon us to examine our past so we can prepare for our future.  This is how.
