teaching of Tao often places great emphasis on Values and Virtues of individual,
such collective of personal values and tributes often ended up with mass
management or should I say in more fad term, leadership of a group of people
like family, enterprises as well as country. -The Yin and Yang theory.
The word filial in broader context includes the love for respect, respect
especially for elderly, for family, for friends and for human being in general
that include your enemy. Such value is often lead or connected to virtues like
humanism, trustworthiness, justice, etiquette and camaraderie.
statement is not hard to understand, as this basic inner value would put a
family interest especially elderly far beyond personal desire. Such value is and
will dictate the level of happiness within the family, and the ability to
understand such statement would help individual to manage and lead family. The
harmony of a family would be felt and this would serve as a pillar to current
social reform catalyst to bring in togetherness and hopefully to reduce divorce
rate and other related complicated social problems. Believe in it and you will
progress! When the family relationship is in a mess, the need to have
merciful parents and filial sons to revert such condition.

level would only be achieved if one were able to fulfill previous level of
Little Filial. This statement would require reader to think and act like a
leader, a leader should learn to listen and act accordingly to uphold the
interest of a group of people far exceeded a small group of people like family.
This value is critical in managing firm and enterprise, small community and a
like. Such collective behavioral pattern of groups of people would require
individual to think for the benefit of a general consensus and any
individualistic style and hero type action would not serve the purpose.
Devotion Manages Country
The basic and most essential value to rule and lead a country or large community is none other than filial devotion. When chaos and bad rulers were rampant in a country, the need to have loyal ministers to revert such condition. This is to let us know that a country leader should love its people and place the interest far exceeded a small group of people especially crony. Such favoritism would jeopardize country interest as a whole. Recently the President of US has put a side religion differences between US and Muslims Communities is an example of Filial Devotion, a devotion to set the world for peace. The President said ‘if all sides face the sources of tension squarely and focus on mutual interests, we can find a new way forward.’ A few examples of philanthropists like Li Ka Shi (Hong Kong), Warrant Buffet and Bill Gates that have turned big portion of their wealth into charity contribution to make the world a better place is a typical example of Filial Devotion.
The need to have filial should be
embedded into each individual for betterment for a nation. This
should start somewhere and the time is now!!!
Fears in the Ying Feng Shui (陰宅三畏)
The ultimate Feng Shui desired
result is to harness the kind energy and avoiding the bad ones. Nevertheless one
should study the Three Fears in order to avoid them.
most critical factor in the front of ‘meridian spot’ should be flat with the
right frontier, but should the area is to ‘stiff’ that looks like ancient
arrow, it would defeat the purpose by radiating unkind energies. Such unkind
energies are harmful that create unwarranted outcomes. Many unskilled masters
would wrongly treat such area as the meridian spot and that causes harm to the
younger generation. Such area cannot produce offspring and might create harm to
existing owner. Such flat area looks like ancient arrow and many un-trained
masters would treat the spot beneath it as ‘meridian spot’. The incoming
mountain that is straight to the spot is an unreal spot that carry the
continuous energy (unkind). Vicinity area with mountains shape looks like the
‘inverted bell’ or ‘bulging belly’ would produce undesirable outcomes.
Fear Two (穴前莫傾瀉, 明堂如簸米, 子孫窮到底)
To strike a
balance is hard, above we touched upon the stiffness of a site and this part we
would not want a slope-slanting site. With the frontier is water should also be
avoided. Such area would only let the poor becomes poorer and rich becomes poor.
You might ask the definition of near and far, let us say within the scope of
20-30 foot is considered near and beyond is acceptable. The essence is the water
trail should not in straight line trail and it should in a curvy manner that
produces and sustains wealth.
Fear Three (順砂謂之退神,竄而過堂,尤為至毒)
