Also, I believed fortune telling can predict events, but never our reactions or state of emotions to it. I could be ill but feeling contented, having the high of life but always grumbling.
Today, my wife told me she went to see a Buddhist shifu with some friends during CNY. She was quite worried that I would get angry because I always tell her not to do such thing.
She told me the shifu told her she had a relatively smooth life, but our son's life will be tough.
My mind keep going through the first 2 paragraphs that I written, and some more. So much so that I realised I am quite affected by it. You can predict my life will be full of obstacles and I think I will be less than or not affected at all.
But I keep looking at my son just now. Then I realised the fact that I keep repeating the first 2 paragraphs in my mind is that I hope the "prediction" is not true. Whereas if the prediction is on my life, I think I would just say "let it be"
I then realised how much my son meant to me than myself.
What's my point? Nothing, just letting off steam. No underlying zen moral, no need to think too much
