一命﹐二運﹐三風水﹐四道德﹐五讀書。

"First is fate, second is luck, third is fengshui, fourth is virtue, and fifth is education."

         
 

一命﹐二運﹐三風水﹐四道德﹐五讀書。
"First is fate, second is luck, third is fengshui, fourth is virtue, and fifth is education."

This is a common saying among students of Chinese Metaphysics. They are placed in this sequence of importance or influence in one’s life:-

1. Fate
2. Luck
3. Fengshui
4. Virtue
5. Education

After much contemplation, I would like to propose an addition to the list:-

0. Karma
1. Fate
2. Luck
3. Fengshui
4. Virtue
5. Education

For those who are not familiar with this term ‘Karma’, some of the useful links to give you some idea what it is.

5. Education 讀書

As you can see from the table above, Karma is considered as a 'human factor' and influenced by one’s freewill and it ranked first before everything else. Therefore to improve one’s life (now and in future), start taking positive actions instead of blaming your current state on heaven and paying too much attention on fengshui.
