The 3 Kinds Of Luck
by Phillip Lim in conjunction with Richard Tan
Have you wondered why some people seem to have all the luck? Why
are some people born lucky, with things working out easily for them
whereas others have to work hard to achieve little? Why do feng shui
enhancers and cures work wonders for some and achieve less for others?
The answer is really quite simple. Luck as we know it comprises of 3
portions, namely Heaven Luck (Tie’n Chai’), Earth Luck (Ti Chai’) and Mankind Luck (Ren Chai’).
is preordained and cannot be changed. In a
nutshell, heaven luck will determine when you are born, the location,
as well as which family you are born into. Thus, our life to some
extent is determined by the day, time and place we were born whether we
like it or not. Our parents and the country of birth will affect the
quality of our life. Our inborn strengths and weaknesses,
characteristics and personality can be revealed through one’s
personalized four pillars of destiny or other methods of fortune
telling to reveal his or her destiny. The pattern of our luck cycles
follows a predictable and logical pattern and not on a random basis.
The state of our luck will affect our endeavors and quality of life at
a particular point in time and not be the same throughout our life.
relates to the kind of luck affected by our
surroundings. Of course, we will not be able to make much change to the
major scope of our environment. On a broader context, we can include
the social, political and economic condition of the country and
environment where one works at and this will affect quality of life. A
more prosperous, stable and safe country with a cleaner or better
environment will enhance one’s quality of life. Likewise, a poorer,
politically unstable, war-torn country, or a dirtier environment will
affect one’s quality of life. Again, even the physical landscape of our
surroundings will play a part in the landscape feng shui of our
surroundings. However, the practice of Feng Shui allows us to effect
changes within the realm of our home, office and personal space.
Therefore, even if in the bigger scope of things, our earthly luck is
not so good, we are still able to create some positive ‘chi’ thru the
correction of our interior feng shui to improve our overall luck. Thus,
thru the practice of feng shui, can one make that crucial difference in
life, between one that is truly successful and one that average.
is created by our behavior, our attitude
towards life, as well as the choices that we make along this journey of
life. There should not be any doubt that personal effort can greatly
affect one’s quality of life. Many people from poorer backgrounds or in
a disadvantageous position have turned around their quality of life
thru their efforts and attitude towards life. There are many stories of
people who have become very successful even though they started off
life in a somewhat unfavorable position. Yet there are also many
stories of frustrated geniuses that did not make it, despite being
given every advantage in life.
The final conclusion is that, even if your four pillars of destiny
indicates a somewhat insufficient amount of luck, do not despair, as
you can still improve your overall luck by adopting the practice of
feng shui and ensuring that your personal actions and attitudes create
