Studying Chinese metaphysics subjects without understanding the philosophy behind it only makes us hollow in life that only lead a person to a satanic path. Thus why the saying goes Success Without Fulfillment. Many people may appear successful but deep inside its hollow.
I found this posting which I find it meaningful from A friend, Raymmnd Goh and let me share with you the posting and how it is relevant in the study of Feng Shui.
– Zuò Rén Yaò Xiàng Tóng Qián Yí Yàng ，Waì Yuán Neì Fāng
– A person must be like ancient Chinese old copper coin, inside square (upright) and outside round (tactful).
( In the old days of ancient China, Chinese coins has a square hole inside and round on the outside but today most coins if not all are only Round. Square represents the people. Thus a person must be upright in their character or mind(inside) while at the same time we must be tactful and flexible when dealing with people (outside).
It is not different in today’s Feng Shui world, most looks promising or motivating on the outside but hollow inside. Hollow in both substance & virtues. Using scare tactics, selling untested or fake knowledge, giving false hopes or even “attacking” own students in fear of business rivalry.

Of course such information will never appear in their Facebook or Websites. What ever we do should be upright at least in our hearts first. Thus to be in this industry, it is important to cultivate the right views and understanding on the importance of the impact of our work to the lives of others, then we may find success with fulfillment. It is not about our personal ego or for the glamour of the job but rather to be responsible for our advises. Surely, we are not god thus we do not need to play god like be able to help all in this world or knows all but rather believe we can help someone at least and same time do not harm others because of our wrong advises.
There are many practitioners who have left the industry as far as for the ones I know for various reason but mostly unknown reason. I salute some of them for their courage and honesty.
