Error in 'Edit Profile' fixed

A ( sadly ) long term bug in the 'Edit Profile' function has been fixed. Previously, any change to your Birth Profile failed to update the Month of Birth correctly, causing an error the next time the profile was accessed.... click here to continue.

Taoists practicing in the 24 points of the solar term

I have also added a solar term calendar to the home page. Be sure to set your time zone and location to ensure accurate time calculation. You can instantly see where we are in the solar year and relate your practice directly to the Heaven and Earthly energy relating to that time. Watch carefully at the major changes (equinoxes and solstices). See Kathy Li's article on the Long Men Pai web site for more details: click here to continue.

Hsien Tien Method page upgraded

The Hsien Tien method of accessing the I Ching is the most popular page on the Energy Master site by significant margin. I recently updated the page and method to include the option of correcting the calculation for your local time zone. The ancient Chinese were extremely precise in their time calculations. All official time related to one reference in the imperial capital, and even today, China lives under one time zone (+8) and Chinese are used to there being an 'official' time and a 'local time'. Local time is Sun time. The time the sun is highest in the sky and directly south is local noon. Taoists use local noon for all astrological and biological calculations. The possessed incredibly accurate solar water clocks in relative antiquity and could easily determine longitude to great accuracy before western civilization had even primitive time-keeping.  click here to continue.

New Features Added

The updated main page now includes a local time calculator ( thanks to Google and the GeoCoder) and a graphic display of the local hour according to the Taoist 12 2 hour segments that make up the 24 hour daily cycle. The displayed hour will be correct for your location when you enter your Country and City. If you have a postal code entering that will often correct the calculation by a few seconds. Local Sun Time will be 12:00 noon at your location when the sun is actually crossing your local meridian ( ie, true local noon). In the Long Men Pai, Complete Reality tradition, the shen returns at the moment of the change of the two hour period. There are twelve of these moments each day. These will occur locally when your sun time is exactly on the odd hours. The 'living midnight' usually refers to the beginning of the hour of tzu, ( 11:00 pm). In stillness, the subtle return of the shen in one of it's many forms marks the 'huo tzu' or living hour of the eternal return. click here to continue.

To you Ox, I give the power to create matter from the seed.

To support growth of young plants.

You have a difficult task which needs patience.

You are like a young plant, with a plan to reach for the light,determined to advance and to be flexible when needed.

You are the governor of the Liver.

Your life means growth, knowing how to plan effectively and being flexible to adjust to different circumstances. You are characterised by your personal drive and good understanding of the moral standard.

For your good work I give you the virtue of Flexible Power.

But beware. This power is flammable. When you use your flexibility for other reasons than reaching for the light, it will harm you. It will cause irritability, expressing anger. Your flexibility will cease, becoming stubborn, with a poor ability to cope with your world. You may experience signs of depression with the tendency to hyperventilate.

So use your qualities well.
