Thomas Edison Call Him His Best Friend

He was another famous industrialist in United States. He had worked as an engineer with the Edison Illuminating Company from 1891 to 1899. During the executives meeting in 1896, he met Thomas Edison for the first time. They later became good friends.

He was well-known as the father of modern assembly lines used in mass production. He had revolutionist the way of making automobiles, and the transportation industry as well as the American industry with this method.

Who is this famous industrialist?

He was no other than Henry Ford. He was credited with “Fordism”. Fordism refers to the mass production of inexpensive automobiles using the assembly line couple with high wages for employees. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. Although Ford did not invent the method of assembly line in mass production of automobiles, he did however sponsor it developments and used, leading it to a huge success. Competitors in the industry then copied and used the assembly lines in their production plants until today.

Henry Ford was born on 30 July 1863 at 7.oo a.m. Let takes a look at the successful Founder of Ford Motor Company.

I will not go in, to write a long biography of how he was successful with his hard work couple with the utilization of the right element in his BaZi chart here.

Yes, hard work, experience and the passion to succeed do play an important role to one’s success besides a good BaZi chart. I have seen few people with good BaZi chart living an ordinary life because the lack the passion and focus to succeed. They also put in less effort in their work. Maybe living a simple, happy life without any hiccup is successful enough for them. Some ordinary BaZi charts do better in term of status, money and power with their toil and labor as well as focus in their work.

However, I have found something very interesting about Henry Ford. It was his belief in the theory of Reincarnation. The San Francisco Examiner on August 26, 1928, published a quote which described Ford’s beliefs:

“I adopted the theory of Reincarnation when I was twenty six. Religion offered nothing to the point. Even work could not give me complete satisfaction. Work is futile if we cannot utilise the experience we collect in one life in the next. When I discovered Reincarnation it was as if I had found a universal plan I realised that there was a chance to work out my ideas. Time was no longer limited. I was no longer a slave to the hands of the clock. Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives. Some are older souls than others, and so they know more. The discovery of Reincarnation put my mind at ease. If you preserve a record of this conversation, write it so that it puts men’s minds at ease. I would like to communicate to others the calmness that the long view of life gives to us.”

I “bold” the part of his statement which I fully agreed with him.

If the theory of reincarnation is true when will Henry Ford reborn again? Will he be as successful as before? This I am not sure, but I can do some calculation. You will likely see a person with the same temperament as Henry Ford born on 29 July 2163 at 7.00 a.m. Maybe this guy will set another industrialisation in transportation during his life time! Maybe he will popularize teleportation! Or maybe he will just be an average guy doing his best to survive. Will my blog be here long enough to witness such an event unfold. That, I will never know.

Warning: This article is to read for fun. Do not get too attached or obsessed with the idea of reincarnation especially the Resource Structure people, in particular the Indirect Resource Structure. No one has proven or can prove that the reincarnation is a real stuff yet.
