YOUR FORTUNE:

Many a golden chance you’ve lost,

As you look back over your past;

Where others won by being first,

You were always the last.

An offer which may come soon would bring you much joy.

Comments:

This is a time of rebirth and renewal.  Cultivate a strong spiritual life to sustain you in times of stress.  You are content, what you think and feel fosters inner harmony.  Friends and family enjoy being with you. You lead a simple and carefree life, and you are free of fears and worries.

If we look for external objects or situations outside ourselves to make us happy, the fact is that it won’t work.  It would be nice if it did, but we as humans just aren’t made that way.  You might be happy temporarily if you have a new car, or a great job, or a bigger house; but that feeling of joy and accomplishment will wear off quickly.

Happiness and contentment come from finding satisfaction in ourselves and in our lives, so if we can learn to think beyond the moment, and can learn to understand what our life path should be, we can make the decisions and choices that will enable us to be truly happy.

On the journey of life, not every step must be forward.  If we can take a step back to reflect, our horizon will be broadened. Stepping back a little in all matters not only leaves some space for others, but also advances one’s self-cultivation.

Summary

This is not an easy time.  Many of you have been going through a very challenging period.  Family responsibilities may have increased.  Financial matters and personal relationships could have been troublesome.   There is so much in life you don’t have control over, but one thing you do have control is your ability to practice meditation and mindfulness.

During the times troubled with everything, practice meditation and mindfulness to find equanimity, and to help you see your strengths more clearly.  So, you will feel better about yourself.  Being more optimistic and more self-confident, you can reach for more than you might at other time.

You can still have the opportunities and the outcome can be positive.  Be open to change; it’s here, so face it fearlessly.

                                                                               

In Chinese, the word “crisis” is written with two characters: “danger” and “opportunity.”  So, this  means every crisis is loaded with opportunity; it brings misfortune, but also offers opportunities.  Bad luck becomes blessing because the crisis contains an opportunity to start something new and to grow in a new direction.  The Chinese translation of the word “crisis” captures the Yin-Yang principle!  There are no just “bad things.”  Everything has some usefulness.  By bringing balance back into our lives, we will seize the good instead of the bad.  So as we live though a crisis, we should take time to focus on all of the opportunities we have and to turn the bad luck into good luck.
