Leadership should know the story of Muiiya(無以異也) of Mencius

Today, I think the Leadership should know “Muiiya” which means “No difference”.. What are no difference? “Swords” and “Politics”.  The story is from Mencius; conversation with King Hui of Lian Ch4..

 

My last posting was about the Korean Drama “Six Flying Dragon”. I’ve become a big fan of it these days. lol Muiiya(無以異也) is one of the OST of it. You could listen to the music here.. I put the Youtube. 🙂

 


The lyrics of Muiiya

Sword dance and flower-viewing,
the melody of Do-Hwa-Jeon is shivery cheerful
All the great works for the past 500 years went for nothing

Fathers get stabbed to death by sword,
children get torn to death under taxes
The wail of pain is echoing through Manwoldae
in the flying ashes (of cremated bodies)

Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya (Is there any difference)? Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya?
I’m asking the world, on deciding life and death
Is there any difference between politics and swords?

You, the nameless bird in the sky,
why are you wailing so sadly?
You can’t find where wildflowers have fallen anyway

Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya (Is there any difference)? Mu-Yi-Yi-Ya?
I’m asking the world, on deciding life and death
Is there any difference between politics and swords?

You, the nameless bird in the sky,
why are you wailing so sadly?
You can’t find where wildflowers have fallen anyway


The lyrics as you can see… I feel sad..

Do you know Mencius? If you know Kongzi; Confucius, you would know him as well. 🙂 Confucius was a Chinese teacher and philosopher. He developed a system know as Confucianism, which is often followed in a religious manner but I think it’s not a religion but ethics, Confucius’ study.. Great teaching for people.

梁惠王章句上 四章

梁惠王曰, 寡人願安承敎.
孟子對曰, 殺人以梃與刃, 有以異乎.
曰, 無以異也.
以刃與政, 有以異乎.
曰, 無以異也.
[後略]

King Hui of Lian – Ch.4
King Hui of Liang : I would like to comfortably receive your instruction.
Mencius : Is there any difference between killing a man with a stick or a sword?
King Hui of Liang : No difference
Mencius : Is there any difference between doing it with a sword and doing it with government?
King Hui of Liang : No difference
[The rest omitted]

From this conversation, we should know that the sword which would be the weapon today is not different from the politics… And the world is broad but.. we could feel the world becomes narrow because we could feel the whole politics and economics of each countries are effected by each countries… so close! I could recognize what is happening in China by Twitter or TV-News.

America – Asia, Europe – Africa, Oceania-America, etc…

As I’m writing, I feel more complicated… 😦  How can we solve all the problems???

Today, One thing I wanted to express is that the leadership should think the people of the country.. All the president or Prime minister of each countries should think!! Politics and the people..

Ah… The election of USA is coming!! soooooooo controversial~!!  I Hope the leader is elected, who keeps Peace in mind not War. 🙂

“If each nation’s head and leaders desire for world peace and love their people, they should sign the cessation of war into international law and sign the peace agreement”

Finding Practical ways to the Peace, watching a Korean historic Drama

There were numerous wars in our history… and the wars and conflicts are still in the whole world. Today, I’m introducing an practical way of cessation of war through a Korean historic Drama called “Six Flying Dragons”, which was about establishment story of the Joseon Dynasty.

Before Joseon(朝鮮) Dynasty, there was Goryeo(高麗) Dynasty. In the Episode 2 of Six Flying Dragons, the last scene was Jeong Do-jeon’s speech, which was impressive!!


War shouldn’t be determined by the Haves, because the only ones who die in war are the Have Not’s.
War can’t be determined by the old, because the only ones who die are the young!

Is it right for the child to hold a funeral for the father? Or is it right for the father to hold a funeral for the child?

We’ve already held too many funerals for the sons by the hands of the fathers.

no-more-wars

So! If we show our determination that we’d kill the envoy and make him run away, we can prevent the diplomatic relationship and war.


After the speech, the corrupted nobles suppressed him and his followers who admit not to have war..

Through the speech, if all youth show their determination not to attend the war or conflicts, the war or conflicts couldn’t break out! If all mothers show their determination not to send their children to war, the war couldn’t last..

It would be better who has political power declares not to break the war out than youth or mothers.. But we as youth, mothers, fathers and a family member!!! We could declare “Peace” not “War”.. Our determinations gather, All people declare…There would be no more war..

I think it was really practical way of making peace!! Hoping the world without war is coming soon. 🙂

We could show our determination by pledging the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War.  Check the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War!!

 

Peace comment by Muhammad Ali

Muslims have been prejudiced to others in connection with the terrorist attack including last week’s  Paris terrorist attack. While sharing comments by Mohammed Ali, I  want us to know that not every Muslims are  terrorist.

m

The word ‘Islam’ means ‘peace.’ The word ‘Muslim’ means ‘one who surrenders to God.’ But the press makes us seem like haters.

Terrorists are not following Islam. Killing people and blowing up people and dropping bombs in places and all this is not the way to spread the word of Islam. So people realize now that all Muslims are not terrorists.

Of course, the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not terrorists or sympathetic to terrorists. Equating all Muslims with terrorism is stupid and wrong. But acknowledging that there is a link between Islam and terror is appropriate and necessary.

The name Muhammad is the most common name in the world. In all the countries around the world – Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon – there are more Muhammads than anything else. When I joined the Nation of Islam and became a Muslim, they gave me the most famous name because I was the champ.

peace quote_manheelee1

In the heavens exist the sun, the moon and the stars,

together with the clouds and the winds, as well as the air.

Here on earth exist all of creation.

All of creation here on earth live from the light,

the rain and the air from the heavens.

The heavens have been giving us life constantly without change.

They have been giving us the best training on what it means to serve.

Let us, just like the heavens, love one another unceasingly without change.

Five Peace Quotes

Five Peace Quotes

nonviolence peace, love, children

Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind.

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

You must be the change you want to see in the world.

The Greatest risk is the risk of riskless living.

You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you,

even if it hurts some people you love.
