The Goddess of sea is mostly remembered as the princess of greater good, the Divine Feminine, and we could picture her in our imagination to be dressed in red, sitting still and calming the waters and the wind, showing her divine power. It it said that back in 1122 the Supervising Secretary Lu Yundi who received an order to go on a mission to Korea, was travelling on one of the eight ships who survived a savage hurricane through the Eastern Sea, while the other seven ships were wrecked. Lu acknowledged the Goddess of Sea and begged for her protection. He lived to tell the story of the holy experience upon his return. Lu said: “In this world, it is only my parents who have always shown endless kindness. Yet, when in the course of my vagrant life I almost arrived at the brink of death, not even my father and mother, in spite of their utmost parental love, could help me, while a divine girl, by simply breathing, was able to reach out to me. That day, I truly received the gift of rebirth.”
Today, another man, Taiwanese tycoon Terry Gou, who crossed many hurricanes though his journey into wealth, lives to tell the story of future memories. Terry Gou , founder and chairman of Apple supplier Foxconn, announced today that he would enter the competition in the next January’s presidential election. At a time when China refuses to renounce the military force against Taiwan, this extraordinary bid disturbs the race and escalates the tension with China. Plunging into the stormy waters of politics, Terry Gou received the blessing of the Goddess of Sea who came into his dream and inspired him to adventure into the narrow corridor of political power.
“Gou’s entry in the race further clouds the future of Tsai, who already has an uphill climb to win re-election. She faces her own nomination fight in the DPP, where her pro-independence base is pushing for a cleaner break from the mainland. To shore up support, she’s recently cracked down on mainland investments, as well as visitors and other potential sources of political influence. ” (Bloomberg)
