THE QUESTION ARISES FROM THE MOVIES OF THE LOST OF BLADESMAN

THE QUESTION ARISES FROM THE MOVIES OF THE LOST OF BLADESMAN


On the morning of May 9, I received a revelation from the movie entitled "The Lost of Bladesman" which I watched the day earlier after my bible discussion with a group of friends. Kuan Yew is my childhood's hero. I must admit that this man of principle has a great impact on my life despite the fact that I know some people who regarded him as a fool to have died for his guided principle. After I accepted Christ as my Savior, I realized lots of similarity to the warriors of Jesus as recorded in the scripture. All the warriors conquered the fear of death to serve the Mighty God they loved and served.




In this movie, two main contrasting characters, one of Kuan Yew and the other of Cao Cao can be seen. It is still relevant and applicable in today's modern technological era. This story recorded two different approaches taken by both of them to bring peace to the world.


CAO CAO


was a smart manipulator and used all his talents for wrong cause to achieve a "huge success" based on worldly standards. He manipulated every one for his advancement and became a powerful Prime Minister, under a weak emperor of his country. He was the only one, who is permitted to carry a sword in the palace. He was exempted from kneeling and bowing (as a respect to their Majesties in the past) his head to the emperor. However he expected the rest of the officials to abide to the rule of law, but he was above the rule - that annoyed Kuan Kew. All the officials, at that time, feared him, except Kuan Yew, due to his cruelty to do anything to those who disobeys him. But the truth is that he had never gained respect from the Chinese community. His legacy collapsed almost immediately upon his death. You can see this truth still happened in today's modern world. This reaffirmation of the fact that history repeats itself.


It is vividly demonstrated that compelling people to do things out of fear, will never last. This have been well recorded in the history books and reaffirmed in the Scriptures as well. Yet even the smartest Alex will always make the same mistake, from the past to the present and even to the future.


KUAN YEW


on the other hand was a real brave warrior, who fought for brotherhood; loyalty and steadfastness for principles, justice and righteousness. No surprise, that he was well regarded in the Chinese community as a great hero even though he had died in a horrible condition. He was beheaded. However, subsequent to his death, the Chinese community raised him as a saint, who had conquered death and was set free to fight for justice and righteousness. His actions well demonstrated his good cause - "in the name of peace and harmony for his nation" without any hidden agenda.


This movie recorded the hassles he has to go through to exit from Cao Cao's nation and join Liu Pei, a weaker nation which intended to prevent Cao Cao from advancement. He had great foresight and vision that enabled him to see the Cao Cao's nation lack of love. What prove him right is that the mighty nation under Cao Cao did not last long.






His bold action to follow his conscience in serving Liu Pei, rather than Cao Cao, led me to leave behind an excellent legacy that last for more than two thousand years. Till to-date, he is still well respected hero from the people who live two thousand years after him. I believe that such an honour will last over time. This is simply because righteousness always prevails over time. The price he paid for such a honour is a great one too - he died in horrified manner (beheaded); yet people subsequently raised his status as Saint, who chose to fight against the evil force.


Here, I like to draw the analogy between him and Aspotle Paul. Both of them chose to forgo their promising and rewarding career as high ranking officials but press on to pursue for justice and righteousness so to speak - A real and true warrior. Kuan Yew initially served the Prime Minister, Cao Cao. Similarly the Aspotle Paul who was trained by and served the Phraisee before Jesus touched and transformed him and made him overcome his false belief.


When both of them realized their un-reconciled differences with their initial beliefs, they made a U turn, which made them seem like rebellions, a very thin distinction between a hero and a rebel. You can see vividly how irrational for them to do so by foregoing such a promising and rewarding career as high ranking officials at their initial camps. In this connection, please put forward your thought should you come to different conclusion as I did. Thank you in advance for your kind thoughts.


However, there is a difference between both of them. The former seems to have no choice, but continuously fight so as to defend advancement from Cao Cao despite his acknowledgement of the truth that a war will never end the war. Whereas, the latter chose to use Word, against swords or bullets, to bring righteousness to MIGHTY GOD


This movie was selected from a chapter of the THREE KINGDOM


Conclusion


We can select two different definitions of success from the above story. The worldly success of Cao Cao who used unjustifiable means to achieve temporary nature of success while Kuan Yew's success


is of a permanent nature, but may seem as a failure based on worldly standards. However, the latter’s good legacy will prevail and last but not the former.


Trust the above story give us a clear picture of choice we need to opt for.


To your success,


The truth will prevail; no matter how you conceal it

Needless to say that this huge magnitude of responsibities they are having is of great significance to the world at large.

As such, she truly made Malaysia proud of her achievement and her significant contribution well deserved to be an inspiration for all, especially Malaysia who advocates Peace.

ANOTHER BOLD MOVE BY CHINESE GROUPS - BAN SHARK HUNTING

Dear Readers,

 SAY "NO" TO SHARK FIN SOUP


I am deeply delighted to read the news, reported by P. Aruna on the Star dated May 9, 2011, entitled Chinese groups back plan to ban shark hunting. This good news should not only be welcome, but appreciation also be given to the relevant bodies which have made all the necessary initiatives to gain the support of the ban on shark hunting.


According to the report, Chinese groups have come out in support of the proposed ban on shark hunting by the Sabah Government. Such a call puts this bold proposal near to reality, if people are taking serious action on this. It was also reported that the Malaysia Chinese Food Consumer Association vice-chairman, Mr. Wilson Chia, claimed that his association fully supports the ban.

He added that the association also discouraged the community from choosing shark fin soup as the main course during functions. His call is loud and clear and trust more people will respond positively to his call so as to preserve the ecology. Likewise, I always said and do not mind to repeat that if we don't care, then who else will.


I am glad to see that this move was not just stops there. The Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia deputy-general Dr Chin Yew Sin also joined in to welcome this ban and urged the Chinese community to support the move.

In this positive note, Malaysia Nature Society urged the state government not only just to ban shark hunting, but also the consumption of shark fin soup as well. Trust Sabah will take the lead to show example for other states to follow suit.

We, at http://liftyouup.blogspot.com, of course like to join in and play our part to support this move. We are also glad that the Malaysia Animal Welfare Society president En Shenaaz Khan wanted such a similar move to be extended to other wildlife as well. We believe that this has come to a crucial stage where we need to act urgently to protect these nearly extinguished animals.

To make this move more effective, it is wise to make more people aware on how shark's fins were obtained. Sad to say that it is a common practice for fishermen to cut off the shark's fins before throwing back the animal back into the sea. We strongly believe that by making the public aware, more restaurant owners will become more environmentally conscious and take the delicacy off their menu. Couple with the pressure from the public not to eat if they were to be served. By this joint cooperation of all parties, nothing can not be achieved.

As such, we trust you will support this bold move and help us to spread this news to your circle of friends. Thank for your kind action to show your care. Better still, if we can do it globally.

We together make things possible.

VALUE FRIEND

PLEASE READ THIS AND SHARE WITH EVERYONE YOU VALUE AS A FRIEND INCLUDING THE PERSON WHO SHARE IT TO YOU, TO REMIND THEM THAT YOU CARE!!!


A few weeks ago a school teacher was killed in an auto accident. She was very well liked, so the school systems shut down for her funeral and it was on the news, etc. On the day her co-workers returned to work, they found this poem in their e-mail that the deceased woman had sent on the Friday before she left for home.


If tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see,

If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;

I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, while thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.


I know how much you love me, as much as I love you!

And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;


But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand; she said my place was ready, in heaven far above and that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love.


But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye for all my life,

I'd always thought I didn't want to die; I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do, it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.


I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad; I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.


If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while; I'd say good-bye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.


But then I fully realized that this could never be, for emptiness and memories would take the place of me; when I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow.


But when I walked through Heaven's Gates, I felt so much at home.

When God looked down and smiled at me, from his great golden throne,

He said, "This is Eternity and all I've promised you."


Today your life on earth is past but here life starts anew. I promise no tomorrow but today will always last; and since each day's the same way there's no longing for the past.


You have been so faithful, so trusting and so true; though there were times you did some things, you knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free; so won't you come and take my hand and share my life with me?


So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart...


SHARE this to all those you care about... because you never know what's going to happen tomorrow. Show them how you care, before it's too late.


"Happiness is a Choice."

May God watch over you and your family now and always.

There is no right time to do the wrong thing... there is no wrong time to do the right thing.


Each of you has touched my life in a very special way. I thank God for each one of you and count it a privilege to call you a "Friend!"


God Be With You!
