Just a thought. Perhaps the extreme bending described of the practitioner touching his head to the floor could be explained by this sort of chi kung relegating the chi/intent to the sub(super?)-conscious mind.
People have been known (and I have witnessed) to perform actions under hypnosis that they were not capable under normal circumstances.
As chi kung state of mind is a form of mild self-hypnosis, maybe a deeper state could be the reason for the extreme movements ?
This form of chi kung has been a most pleasant and satisfying experience since I discovered it in Wong Kiew Kit’s books, where he calls it Self-induced Chi flow.
The method is the same, and the results are a great calm and joy over the most mundane things around me.
To “cool down”, all that I require is to gently command myself to stop, not suddenly or rigidly, but gradually bringing the movements under more and more concious control.
Thank you for the site, much love to you all.]]>
So sad to see how British colonialism and supremacy are still penetrating effectively decades after the official decolonisation/The handover in 1997.
Like some people in the UK here, still so uneducated or simply wilful ignorance, so proud of the legacy of so-called British Empire which was builded by the slaves trades and worldwide invasions…
Now in July 2020, the UK government has just announced one of the many plans to help and improve UK economy after the Brexit, one of them is to offer the long overdue “rights to live and work” visa, i.e. the Second-class British Passport /British National Overseas Passport, to its former British Colonises in Hong Kong, a so-called 5-years citizenship pathway BNO passport holders, in this case, a Refugee from Hong Kong to a British Citizen.
The motive is very clear here, is to fill some of those undesirable jobs left from loosing a great deal of cheap and hard-working labour from the EU, and a bit of cash injection, a mini-boost to the property market… every little bit helps!! Sadly, I fear that far too many people back home-Hong Kong are too colonised/blinded to western superiority?
Or may be, it is just me, have witnessing too many injustices, discriminations against so-called ethnic minorities by the UK government and all those hypocrisies… how they handle the Covid-19 pandemic crisis here is a good example and I will say no more !!]]>
Your letter to Mr.Biden is “spot on”! I will follow up with a similar statement later today addressed to Mr. Biden.
All the best,
Mr. Joseph Robert Bingham,
Thanks for your question. The answer to your question “Was the “foreign’ nurse that put herself between the Japanese and wounded British soldiers German?” is no, based on the information I received from my friends Simon K. Li and Jonathan Hung (both from Hong Kong). That nurse is Elizabeth Mosey, an Australian. Here are three references given to me by Simon K. Li:
(1) Not the Slightest Chance: The Defence of Hong Kong, 1941 (回頭無望：1941年香港保衞戰)
By Tony Banham (HKU Press):
(2) Elizabeth Mosey by Sophie Baker
(3) Hirohito’s War: The Pacific War, 1941-1945
By Francis Pike (Bloomsbury Academic)
Thanks again for your question.
