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 Goat, I give the power of understanding.

You penetrate the deepest depths,

To transform and reorganise what is yours.

Outside you show beauty and joy like a tree full of bloom.

Inside you support your essence for renewing life.

You are the governor of the Small Intestine.

Your life means understanding of the process of renewal providing people with a sense of freedom and creativity. They can express joy thanks to your care and endless support. Your sharp sense of discrimination is expressed by a disciplined use of your mental facilities together with a fluent powerful use of language.

For your good work, I give you the virtue of Perseverance.

But beware, if you become too dominant or arrogant, your joy will change into worries, you will live a life lacking in spontaneity. You will try to overcome this by showing the tendency to intellectualise your emotions and experiences and by compulsive talking. You will lose your sharp sense of discrimination: Your care will become suffocating.

So use your qualities well.
