Yuan Liao-Fan was born in the Ming Dynasty. At 69, he wrote a book Liao-Fan's Four Lessons as heritage to his son. He died at the age of 73. Here’s the story.

 Everything was FATE. One could do NOTHING to alter it.

  1. Elder Kong who was good at fortune telling told Liao-Fan he would pass 3 tests at respective places. A year later, the results of the test proved Kong correct in all counts.
  2. Elder Kong foresaw everything. What position Lian-Fan would have in the government, how much compensation, and that he would die at the age of 53 with no son.
  3. As many predictions proven with great accuracy, Liao-Fan ceased to challenge matters in life. He had no ambitions, meditated all day long, and stopped studying.

 One’s Destiny was in his/her own hand.

  1. At 36 Liao-Fan met a monk, Yun-Gu who stated the common would be bound to Yin-Yan (the fate). The exceptions are those who did great deeds or committed unforgivable sins.
  2. Yun-Gu taught that to change the destiny, one needed to
  3. reflect the good and bad done
  4. daily discipline oneself: consciously do the good deeds

 One was not bound by fate, but his own actions

  1. After self-examining his personality and habits, Liao-Fan decided he deserved the fate he had.
  2. Yun-Gu taught him how to change his fate
  3. rig of bad habits and control his temper
  4. act diplomatic, be humble and kind, help the needed, and be strict to himself

 Cultivation and prayers

  1. Liao-Fan confessed to the buddha and promised 3,000 good deeds.
  2. He started to change himself, rig the bad and seek the virtuals.

 Liao-Fan’s fate started to change

  1. Liao-Fan was cautious about what he said and did. He faced criticism with a clear conscious.
  2. A year after doing good deeds persistently, Elder Kong’s predictions were no longer as accurate.

 DAO was available to the humble

  1. When famous, act humble; when things are going great, proceed with caution as not.
  2. Show respect to others. Don’t feel shame to ask questions and help.
  3. Discipline yourself and show good manners. Nurture your virtues and enter DAO.
  4. Reflect daily. Rig of the wrong whenever you can.

Liao-Fan made an effort to change his destiny and succeeded. This book was the proof. Here are the questions and answers if you are still puzzled.

  1. Can one change his destiny? YES
  2. How?   Through Cultivation. Show Kindness and Humility.
