It’s your life! Do you want to be the driver or a passenger?

So what are you going to do with your one and only life? Some choose to live their life to the fullest, but what does that mean? How much is “the fullest”? What if I’m not entirely sure what I want to do? The 4 Pillars System (BaZi) guides us in discovering what makes us unique, what our potential is and how to navigate our lives to make the most of them — to squeeze every last drop of enjoyment and success out of our “one and only life”.

Introducing the 4 Pillars System

If we’re going to introduce a system that’s meant to help us understand what life is all about, then we’re going to need a place to start from. And what place could be more suitable to start from than with who we are? To answer that question, the philosophers of Ancient China developed theories about our composure, about the role in our lives that, that little voice in our head plays, about destiny, and most importantly about the one unifying motivator that pushes us forward – happiness.

Stems, Branches and Animals

How do we perceive our lives? What role does the passage of time play? If time is so critical to us, then what of the idea that time is relative? The philosophers of ancient china were also puzzled by these questions. Their understanding of life, viewed time in a way radically different to ours. See, they saw the recording of time more as a recording of the energetic status of the world. But since they saw energy as a force that operates in endless cycles, their record of time also had to by cyclical. Which as we know, is the opposite of our linear recording of time.

The 12 Stages of Life

While exploring the life and the world around them, Ancient China’s Philosophers came to the conclusion that life, much like many things in our world, operates as a cycle. To better understand the life cycle, they searched for a common series of stages that could describe the interconnectivity of all life. The result was a series of 12 stages, a sort of path that everything and every experience follows. This path is not determined by a counting of time, rather the journey, starting and ending at once.

Clashes and Combinations

How you ever wondered why it is that with some people, we get along really well, but with others things seem impossible? Well, the Philosophers of Ancient China asked themselves this question too. In fact, this question, or rather the understanding of interactions played a significant role in the formation of Chinese Philosophy.

The Spirits

Think of your favorite movie actor. Once you have a picture of them in your mind, think about how you perceive them. Do you see them as rich? Famous? Beautiful? Admired? Powerful? Or maybe you just see them as someone you could be friends with? The Philosophers of Ancient China too thought about these issues. They had already determined how to define the world energetically according to the 5 Elements. But what they grew to understand was that the 5 Elements were not enough. They needed to know not only the type of energy embodied in what was before them, but also the role that, that type of energy played in relation to everything else and vice versa. To understand these roles, the Philosophers of Ancient China developed the theory of the Spirits.

Purpose, Strength, Flow and Keys

In our lives, keys play a crucial role. Each of us carries a set of keys, some of them, we may not even notice. We have keys for our house, for our car, for our mailbox, for our secret office drawer. We even have usernames and passwords for our virtual locks. But what if you were to find out that there was one key we carry with us at all times? Some of us have discovered this key and use it constantly. Others may have discovered it but have yet to find the lock that it fits in. The philosophers of Ancient China discovered these keys and their locks. These keys, they determined, are our way to unlock a life of balance, a life of harmony, and most importantly, a life of happiness.
