The Viewpoint Toward Life and Death of Mohist in My Body Now
Self-proclaimed as a contemporary Mohist, I have been diagnosed with blood cancer for more than one year so far. In these days. I have more profoundly realized and introspected Mohist’s view of life and death. Life experience and inspection that comes to contract the disease more in this years, my personal experiences have justrfied the aspects of “Ming” （命）, “death-life and the rewards and punishments from Tien（天）”, and “death and life is a choice” in the Mohist’s view of life and death. Since the experiences were personally, the paper will not be written in the way for attaching viewpoints one by one, but with the mixed way of discussion and narrative to carry out justification. The concept of “Ming”（命）of Mohism has hardly tried to get rid of the predestination view. I do not agree with the idea of fate even though I confront the severe blood cancer. Actually, I have learned something from the disease, but I decide to live truly and hardly instead of overly pessimistic. The will of Tien（天）in Mohism rewards the good and punishes the vicious lies in doing righteousness or not and rewarding wealth to righteous man and reducing disaster to injustice man. However, the disease is not a disaster but the necessary process in life and the favor of Tien instead. Mohist facing life and death are to choose by trade-off doing righteousness that my trade-off lies in the “responsibility” to the surroundings. In this way, the paper is written starting with a “prologue” and ending up with an epilogue of “the end is not yet”.
