In China, three factors are considered for prediction of future. According to Chinese belief the heaven, the earth and the man are the three resonating factors of energy, where the energy of one factor is constantly changed and produced in the other factor. These three are believed to have three types of lucks. This luck is responsible for the development of an individual. One of these factors can never be changed, whereas the other two can be changed up to some extent.
(1) HEAVEN’S LUCK
A person has no control over the social and financial conditions of the family in which he is born. Family, society, time, country or situation, which a person gets at the time of his birth are considered a gift from God. These gifts from the God are called Heaven’s luck. Heaven’s luck of a person depends upon various factors at the time of his birth and thus it is fixed at that particular time only. Since man cannot change natural cycles, it is never possible to affect the heaven’s luck. Personality, destiny and future etc. of an individual are, therefore, decided by studying these factors.
Not only these factors but other situation like parents, caste, society, blood group etc. of a person are per-destined and are not subject to any choice. They are obtained as they are. A person has no control over the religion or caste at the time of his birth. Even science doesn’t allow a person to choose the desired heredity. Features and habits of parents are also inherited automatically. He need not put any effort for this. All the above situations, which are not controllable by a person are called Heavenly Luck. Two kids are born at the same time. One is born in a palace and is called prince while the other one is born in a hut and is the son of a poor man. This is their respective Heavenly Luck. But they can achieve anything with their action and deeds.
(2) HUMAN LUCK
A man works all his life. He achieves his objectives only through his work. And accordingly he has a status in the society. Every individual sets his aims and objectives and for this he works according to his capabilities. Together with hard work, dedication and enthusiasm are equally important for achievement of one’s goals. Thus, achievement of goals is very much under one’s own control. Man can achieve anything only if he performs his duties sincerely. Education, employment and achievement of goals are all dependent on man himself. Thus, a man’s efforts alone decide his luck. This luck is called Human Luck because it can be changed by man himself. No one else is responsible for this. There are ample examples of such successful persons. These people are masters of their own luck through hard work, commitment and dedication.
(3) EARTH’S LUCK
The place, where a person is brought up is more influential on his life than the place where he was born. A Chinese family staying in an American state will be different from those living in China itself. Such children, who are brought-up in American culture won’t be comfortable in China. A Chinese born and brought up outside China can be easily figured out through the language he speaks. Earth’s luck of a person depends upon the environment of a place, where he is staying for a long time. A change in place will also change the Earth’s Luck.
The environment and buildings in which a person lives on earth decides his earth’s luck. Clothes, language and features of a person speak a lot about him. All these factors are affected considerably by the home and society. Financial, social and mental state of a person can be predicted by looking at his clothes. This is the effect of clothes, which are actually his cover. Clothes are worn according to seasons so that they have a good effect on the body. Similarly, homes are a man’s cover or shelter and they definitely affect the residents. Man tries to cure the negative influences caused by these factors. One of the ways to cure this is Feng Shui. Feng Shui is a practice of arrangement of environment, situation, decoration etc. in and around the home. If a person doesn’t know this, his life will certainly be affected by Earth’s Luck. But Feng Shui makes him aware of his Earth’s Luck and suggests and provides solutions to the problems.
This way three types of lucks – Heaven’s Luck, Human’s Luck and Earth’s luck play one third role each in a man’s life. Life can be considered fine if two of these lucks are good. Nobody knows what he is going to achieve. Life can be assumed best if a person with hard work creates and improves his Human Luck along with the other two. Any lack of the two lucks can be nullified by improving the Human Luck. Thus, a person should not get disappointed over a lack of the two lucks because the third one is still in his own hands. Here, in the Earth’s luck only one third change can be brought about in a man’s life through Feng Shui. It cannot change a man’s life completely.
