QUESTION: Masters, I had so much interest about Feng Shui, Astrology, Numerology, Angel/Tarot Card Readings, etc. since young age. At very early stage of my intensive spiritual awakening, I even got myself certified in Feng Shui. I thought I would resonate with its teaching but I find more & more of its ruling to run individuals lives in fear & weary. The more I get myself aligned to ‘my heart center’, the more I find Feng Shui to be a real fear based ‘Chinese scientology’ as claimed. Realizing it only started about 4000 years ago compared to many other Cosmo, Science & Ancient Teachings, why & how did FS start & so many are still believing & letting it run their lives in fear? Why am I moving away from so many other teachings & believes I used to think were eminent then including guidance, teachers & masters? ~PC, Singapore
ANSWER: There are hundreds of belief systems which people incorporate into their lives. These may include organized religious doctrines, healing techniques, life style procedures, or metaphysical beliefs. These various practices are put together by people living on the planet in the positive/negative duality. Frequently those from whom you learn a practice have their own agenda of control over the students and clients who seek them out.
What you believe and/or feel at any one time is your current belief system by which you run your own life. Your feelings or reality will change from time to time as your experience enlarges. If something feels right to you, then follow the procedure to the degree it fits in with your energy. You can accept the parts of a system that resonate with you while ignoring those that don’t do anything for you.
Don’t judge. Don’t try to inflict your decisions and realities on anyone else. Don’t even be concerned about others. This is your journey. Some people need to be told exactly what to do every minute of every day. They embrace a system to which they can give their power. Honor their freedom of choice to differ from your understanding, for that is their journey.
When you began school you had a learning-stage set of beliefs; then came more advanced schooling and your beliefs changed; by the time university or specialty training came along your daily beliefs changed again. This is the constant growth of the soul who is having a human experience. You will move away from that which is no longer useful to you. Stop over-thinking! Just go with the flow.
