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.

Comment on Hong Kong: Past, Present, and Future by Iris Yau https://www.dontow.com/2019/09/hong-kong-past-present-and-future/#comment-1654632 Thu, 02 Jul 2020 16:02:01 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=5894#comment-1654632 Great overview and thank you !

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 !!

It was, among so many other statements of his, ignorant and not based on fact.

Comment on One Speaks for the Voiceless and One Is the Conscience of Japan by Sharon Dolled https://www.dontow.com/2020/06/one-speaks-for-the-voiceless-and-one-is-the-conscience-of-japan/#comment-1645298 Wed, 10 Jun 2020 21:15:48 +0000 http://www.dontow.com/?p=6301#comment-1645298 I was very fortunate due to NJALPHA to visit Nanjing and hear Tamaki Matsuoka speak. I hung onto every word she spoke and saw many videos of Japanese soldiers and Chinese survivors speak of the atrocities. She is doing very important work and hopefully her teachings will travel further around the world.
I also read her book,, “Torn Memories of Nanking” and highly recommend it for further learning of sad history.

You should post it on Facebook and reach more people—something like an open letter to Joe Biden.

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.

Don Tow
