Burning Oneself So Brightly

E-mail Print PDF

Emotionally stirring events have to use the method of making sacrifices to brew the drives and the dynamics.  When Professor Tsai Ting-Kuei (蔡丁貴) began his meditation protest in front of the Legislative Yuan on Oct. 25th, I personally went there to observe.  At that time, there were about 80 participants.

 

A talk has been passed around that many pro-localization groups promised to join Professor Tsai’s protests by rotating through meditative sittings; but, when the time comes, they withdrew with fear.  This is probably because they don’t feel comfortable declining Professor Tsai’s goodwill and invitations.  In considering psychological reaction based on human nature, the majority of the people will experience the emotive power under the first wave of insistence in meditation protest spearheaded by Professor Tsai.

 

The vital force that Professor Tsai had exhausted through his fasting and meditation protest had already dispersed, with celestial light and warmth resembling the Taiwanese Divinities’, as well as the Taiwanese Martyred Spirits’ heavenly spiritual power; thus, the Taiwanese Martyred Spirits will merge, in unison, with Professor Tsai as well as the fellow protestors.  Certainly, participants in this peaceful meditation will relentlessly increase in number, and this activity will inevitably be transformed into a highly effective dynamic that can truly defend Taiwan’s sovereignty.

 

This is precisely what Taiwanese people need: the Great Love of “Burning Oneself So Brightly.”  To Professor Tsai Ting-Kuei as well as to his on-site fellow meditation companions: The Taiwanese Martyred Spirits are right there, with all of you!

Newsflash

Former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) revealed in an interview that some pro-independence groups did not like the idea of seeing former vice president Annette Lu (呂秀蓮) take over the presidency should he step down at the height of the corruption allegations against him in 2006, adding that his resignation would only have led to the collapse of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Lu said Chen told the "Formosa Weekly," which she founded, his side of the story regarding the “red shirt campaign” organized by former DPP chairman Shih Ming-teh (施明德) to depose Chen in 2006.
