Today I would like to share a real story about this person Tin Ka ping 田家炳. Who is Tin Ka Ping?.
Tin Ka Ping GBM MBE (Chinese: 田家炳; 20 November 1919 – 10 July 2018), also known as K. P. Tin or Tian Jiabing, was a Hong Kong–Chinese businessman and philanthropist. He was the founder and chairman of Tin’s Chemical Industrial Company and the Tin Ka Ping Foundation. Tin donated billions of Hong Kong dollars and funded hundreds of schools, dozens of hospitals, and thousands of rural libraries throughout China. He was awarded numerous honours for his philanthropy, including the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, the Grand Bauhinia Medal by the Hong Kong government, a Gold Plate on Contribution to Public Welfare by President Lee Teng-hui of Taiwan, honorary citizenships by more than 80 cities, and honorary doctorate degrees by over ten universities. Chinese astronomers named the asteroid 2886 Tinkaping after him, and his childhood home in Dabu County is protected as a heritage site. (Reference: Wikipedia)
How Has Feng Shui Affected his life journey for as long he stayed there? So before we talk further lets, understand a little more of his life’s journey.
Tin Ka Ping was born in 1919 in the Hakka community of Dabu County, Meizhou, Guangdong Province. His grandfather was a Qing dynasty official who served in Henan Province and fought against the Taiping Rebellion. He was the only son of his father, a businessman who ran a grocery store and a kiln. When his father died in 1935, Tin was forced to quit school at the age of 15 to run the family business. He went to Vietnam in 1937 to export the porcelain clay which Dabu is famous for, and soon controlled 60% of Dabu’s export business. However, the Second Sino-Japanese War broke out, and in June 1939 the Imperial Japanese Army occupied Shantou, the main port in eastern Guangdong, blocking the export route from Dabu. Tin moved to Indonesia in 1939 to join his cousin and helped run the latter’s metal factory. After the Surrender of Japan in 1945, he founded a factory in Jakarta to process the abundant supply of local rubber, and later expanded the business with a second factory. In 1956, he started the first plastic film factory in Indonesia. Because of government policies that discriminated against Chinese Indonesians, in 1959 he left Indonesia for Hong Kong. He built a factory in Tuen Mun District making plastics and artificial leather, and his Tin’s Chemical Industrial Company became a leader in Hong Kong’s chemical industry.His major change was between 1937-1939, 1940-1959, 1960 >
Feng Shui Of Ancestral House
Since I am only expert in Flying Star Feng Shui System, I will show you the flying star chart of this building built in 1881.
This house sits Bing 丙 faces Ren 壬 has a winding road in front and making a turn just right in front of his house. Then there is a stream as well as the Han River flowing from left to right. The entrance to the house is located on the white tiger side of the house thus making the White tiger side shorter than the Green Dragon side.
Naturally I believe that his grand father was a Qing Minister surely he would have engaged a Feng Shui master to feng shui the house for his retirement. What ever method the Feng Shui master has used, I would not know but from what I am the expert at, clearly it is considered good Feng Shui house.Continue reading “Flying Star With Bazi”
Covid 19 did bring changes to the world of astrology and in this interview with Hong Kong fortune tellers they gave a frank and candid answer. I am sharing this in hope to awaken the people who has fallen deep into to superstition realm.
What is metaphysics and what is psychology and what is superstition and ignorance? There is a difference but I believe many people cannot differentiate them clearly. Perhaps let me give you some example on 2 questions that I was recently asked.
Eclipse on 21 June 2020
Some practitioners will say if you are exposed to this eclipse you will have bad luck thus better stay at home. This is superstition and ignorance not Feng Shui. Imagine every now and then there will be eclipse and how many in this world will be exposed to it simply because people like to take a glimpse of it? Will all these people have bad luck?
Eclipse is just another natural phenomena of the universe and it does bring some energy change but not as in causing bad luck to people exposed to it. I myself have been exposed to it but nothing bad has happened. So people, please wake up and not be too easily fooled by unfounded stories.Continue reading “BaZi, Feng Shui And Superstition”
Flying star feng shui has been a too common knowledge in the Feng Shui field to the point there are many variations of it. Some schools of Feng shui also offer them different sets of theory at different times. If you ask the old students they were told to use the Construction date while the newer batch in the last 8 years or so were told to use the Move in date to determine the period of the property. Thus why is that so if they claimed to be a teacher of classical Feng Shui. The word classical could easily have meant above 300 years old so why change after a span of 14 years. Don’t you agree? Doesn’t it says something about the knowledge they possess?
With the commercialization of Feng Shui today, it is no wonder aspiring students faces this dilemma. Do you know the clear answer? You better be very sure because your decision is going to affect your clients! Remember wrong diagnosis, wrong prescription and wrong prescription will lead to wrong outcome!
There are many other examples of half baked knowledge of Feng Shui, thus finding the Right Feng Shui master is really a matter of the the client’s luck in modern days. In the old days it was much easier. Then what about the ability to follow through the advice? It is even harder for most people today to just follow through instructions.
Here is a case where I stumbled upon a unit where it was empty and rented by my client. The door obviously has been Feng Shuied… and upon measurement we found out this:Continue reading “The Little Known Fact Of Flying Star”
Covid 19 changed the fate of 2020 and will be one of my most memorable years to come. So better I pen a few lines on what I have observed here.
Due to the pandemic, many places were forced to closed for almost 3 months and this has take a heavy toll on most business especially brick and mortar business. In our industry the same as Feng Shui Consultants are not able to work in the field. Thus it begs the question why not in the past? The answer is simple because Feng Shui audit is best done on site for various practical reasons.
So what happened during this period is some industry peers have taken Feng Shui audit and Learning to Online Platform. This resulted me being bombarded by students & friends the question, can it be done effectively? So instead of me answering every individual maybe I pen a few words here about what I think as a practicing consultant for the last decade.
Online Feng Shui Training
This will depend why you want to learn Feng Shui. If the reason to learn is for interest, being bored, to satisfy owns curiosity or for academic discussion then I would say its fine and doable. This would be a perfect opportunity to do it.
If the purpose is to learn and hopefully help your own career or business then I would say it is dangerous. There are many reason as to why but suffice to say that I have come across many cases of 2nd or even 3rd time Feng Shui because they got themselves into trouble. Of course you will never see this or read this on Facebook as they are already suffering in silence. You only get to hear their personal side of their stories, whom they learned from etc. This is also why client’s confidentiality is important to me.Continue reading “Learning Feng Shui Online”
This is an interesting real case I want to share with you and you can see what lesson you can get from this. This has got to do with the famous Qimen DunJia method purportedly can do miracles like it’s a tool for Bazi, forecasting, Feng Shui one’s house etc…in short a 1 fits all wonder tool.
Sometime ago I got a surprise call from a person who sounded urgent and the only question was “What is the period of my house?” Initially I wasn’t alert about this because I was busy but in the late afternoon it somehow struck my mind this question.
Confused About House Period
So when I had more time to give her a reply this person finally agreed to engage me. I went to view the property and yes it was Period 8 property. Then out of curiosity I asked the person why was she so so concerned about the Period of the house? The reply was this:Continue reading “How Qi Men Dun Jia Got Me A Job”
There are many people who doubted Sheng Ji including some self learned masters in the West simply because they do not believe in Yin Feng Shui or Burial Feng Shui. To them Yin Feng Shui is only for filial piety respect.
Then of course there are some practitioners who over sold the effects of Sheng Ji implying Sheng Ji is a miracle pill that will transform you into some billionaire in no time. It is somewhat similar to overselling House Feng Shui or Qi Men Dun Jia.
So What Is Actually Sheng Ji?
Sheng Ji is a subset method of Yin Feng Shui. It involves choosing a plot of auspicious land and do a burial with personal items. So in many ways it is similar to a burial Feng Shui method. I have written some articles on this subject in this blog as well. You may want to read some of my previous postings by doing a search.
However, today I just want to share some news about a Sheng ji for my friend because I had an extra plot of land. He ever shared with me when he was young the mother bought him to an astrologer who told him at 44 he has a danger to pass. He was never a strong believer of all these metaphysics but as an obliging son, he thought there is no harm to do it and take it as a insurance policy.Continue reading “Sheng Ji Effects”
In the Feng Shui world since centuries, we can generally classify masters or practitioners into one of these 4 types which I will talk about them below so common people are able to understand better when they are out looking for a Feng Shui Consultant or Masters.
Most masters work around 2 major parameters. one is the Wow Factor. Wow factor gives the client a kind of “unbelievable” feeling or a quick transformational phenomena. The second parameter is Time. This simply mean how long will the Feng Shui results sustain and grow on the average scale.
As you may be aware of or not, traditionally, Feng Shui results is primarily aimed at 2 major category. Human Factors & Wealth (Career) Factors.
1. Short Term MastersContinue reading “The Four Masters”
Purple White Script or Zi Bai Jue 紫白诀 is part of San Yuan system of Feng Shui method that is divided into 2 scrolls. Upper scroll is more of theory while Lower Scroll is more of prediction. PWS contributes to Xuan Kong Flying Star system in term of prediction along with three other famous classics of Xuan Kong system.
Today I will leave the section about flying star prediction but rather focus on the world epidemic, the Corona Virus codename Covid-19 that is sweeping the world by storm today. This virus started or rather discovered first in Wuhan in early December 2019. It then spread pretty fast all over China.
Wuhan was given a total lock down January 23 in effort to contain the spread. It was a bold move by the Chinese government but was widely criticized back then. the Wuhan lock down was just 2 days before Chinese new year. Then we entered the new solar year of Metal Rat 庚子 on Li Chun 立春 4th February 2020. Since then after it becomes a world epidemic as South Korea the next country infected, Japan, Iran, with Italy taking the lead for the Europeans.
Thus it was primarily a China problem before Li Chun and it accelerated to be a global pandemic after Li Chun. By 7 April 2020 the world count is show below.
Being a Feng Shui Consultant, many started to ask me why this thing happened and why no master predicted this epidemic last year. As I am a non believer in broad based predictions as I have always view them with more entertainment value rather than of any Real Feng Shui significance, thus I do not do annual predictions. The predictions results are usually coincidental rather than being consistent.Continue reading “Purple White Script”
I was dealing with a case for a couple who wanted to conceive but was not bearing result. For those who wanted baby but not possible is sometimes a sad case. I have successfully altered feng shui that enabled couples to have baby. In some cases, where the wife had frequent miscarriage was due to Feng Shui could smoothly bear a baby.
As I listened to their predicament, I offer to take up their case since many masters was reluctant. After setting the formation couple of years ago, nothing happened. I went back after 2 years and could not understand why.
I then checked their Bazi and they seems to have that possibility to bear children. Then I asked them if they are medically fit? The husband answered me yes! Ok, I just have to take his word for it. Then I continued to interview his paternal family to see if its other reasons such as Yin Feng Shui. It seems that this is not likely the case.
I did suggest perhaps consider IVF just before I left.Continue reading “The Wrong Entry”
Waking up early in a foreign land amist political uncertainty back home in Malaysia where the PM has resigned from both his post and party, it reminds me of this word Surviving. I guess it is no difference in Chinese Metaphysics.
Different people has different experience in Feng Shui. Some had very good experience with flying star while some with other method such as different style of Flying Star, San He, 8 mansion or Yijing Feng Shui or Zi Wei Feng Shui or Bazi Feng Shui. Some are very new contemporary method, some were born out of deception while some were born out of misinterpretation of old classics.
The question is how did they Survived ?
Perhaps at this point I may sound a little spiritual because I want to say to you that Heaven decided not to reveal the art to masses but rather to their chosen recipient. Thus why some people benefitted from Feng Shui, some only had a short quick charm while others sufferred. It is the works of Karma behind the curtain.
I guess if you have done no more than 20 cases you won’t be able to draw a strong conclusion compared to if you have done more than 300 cases.
The art survive because of the success cases because there are many coincidences.
