Feng Shui also named as “Wind and Water” or “living in harmony with nature” .  The theory comes from the Taoist and Ruist philosophies who dominated China for thousand of years.  These philosophies say that we are part of the Universe we live in . Mankind should respect  Mother Earth and act in accordance with Heaven. We should protect the Environment and cherish it,not destroy it. The Trinity of our being is Heaven …… Man ….. Earth …….! Those Elements will have a impact on us . Wherever we believe it or not . In the earliest years  they called it Heaven luck , Man luck , and Earth luck. Translated into our terms it means Time …. Space … Action ….

Do you know the saying … Being in the right place at the right time ?

·  Time element is when the person was born .(1948 or any year) 

– The space element is the place where the person was born . ( USA , Germany , France , Vietnam , Singapore … and so on )

– The element of action is what you are and what you become. If a  Man does the right thing at the right time and the right place he will be fortunate. Otherwise , man will encounter hardship.
