To make the people of Taiwan happy again by learning from the Nordics
|In the Sibelius Park in Finland, Tai Ji Men members spread love and peace through their happy smiles and peaceful songs.|
From late May to early June 2018, Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, Zhang-men-ren (grandmaster) of Tai Ji Men, led the delegates of the Tai Ji Men Qigong Academy to conduct cultural exchanges in Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, and Norway, bringing people of different nations closer together. On May 28, Dr. Hong led the delegation to visit Denmark, which has ranked among the happiest nations of the world for multiple times. The Danes have high levels of trust, which is closely related to their high levels of happiness.
Near the Little Mermaid statue by the waterside at the Langelinie promenade as well as the 400-year-old Renaissance Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen, Tai Ji Men members sang “Love and Peace Song,” spreading loving and peaceful energy to visitors and locals alike. A group of students from Switzerland joyfully sang and danced with the members. Isaac Freakman cheerfully expressed his gratitude to the Tai Ji Men members for radiating love through their singing and laughter.
Next, the delegation visited Finland. Finland’s education system values diversity and encourages children to be active thinkers and take the initiative to explore on their own. The country is ranked the happiest nation on Earth in 2018, according to the World Happiness Report. The delegation visited the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland, and Dr. Hong shared with the representative of Finland’s Minister of Education and Culture that it is important to use the wisdom of yin and yang to resolve conflicts, and he also expressed his hope that Finland can help more people and nations across the globe through its quality education.
The third country the delegation visited was Sweden, the homeland of Alfred Nobel, a famous scientist and founder of the Nobel Prizes. He made an enormous fortune through the invention of dynamite and other explosives. In his will he bequeathed his fortune to fund the Nobel Prizes to recognize great contributions to humanity. “Kind intentions can improve the world,” said Chuo-Lun Lee, a Tai Ji Men member, “Dr. Hong told us that at critical moments, if an influential person makes the right decision based on kindness, then conflicts can be defused and peace promoted.”
The fourth nation the delegation visited was Iceland, which is also named one of the happiest nations in the world. Although it was hit hard by the financial crisis in 2008, the government rebuilt its economy through fostering tourism and strengthening its financial policies. Its success story has set a great example for the rest of the world.
On the final leg of their trip, the delegation visited Norway. They visited Det kongelige hoff, the Norwegian Office of the Prime Minister, and the Office of the Governing Mayor of Oslo. They met with Assistant Director General Erna Ansnes at the Oslo City Hall. Dr. Hong shared with her that peace needs love, and love needs to be balanced, so without love there’s no peace.
To date, Dr. Hong has led Tai Ji Men members to spread the messages of love and peace in 90 nations. On their journeys of peace, they have met numerous peace-loving people and connected countless kind hearts. Through these trips of peace, they have shown that the power to change the world lies in our kind intentions and good deeds.
