Do More Good Deeds!

Words are our Best Weapon Against the Lies of History (Truth in the Root of the Word).

Strange, isn’t it

han-shan and Shi De

I know. I just know you are not going to get this. But I should try to put it in a way where you will at least have a flicker. So here goes no-thing!

A couple of years ago I saw an unlikely pair master it, or at least on the verge of mastering it. Many made fun of their folly, and society painted an illusive picture of them. Me, I just thought they were funny, relaxed and natural. But what do I know, I also thought the person who wrote, Life is Just A Bowl of Cherries, was enlightened.

It brought to mind my favorite, dharma poem. The first time I heard it, the Fashi read it during a dharma lecture,  and gave everyone copies.  I put mine on top of the living room console, and whenever my girlfriend would visit I’d ask her to read it to me (as it was in Chinese). One day she asked me, “Andi, Do you think you can do this?”  I told her, I don’t know, but I sure do like the poem. 

han shan and she temadmonks

Translated by disciple Sramanera Kuo Tao, from Vajra Bodhi Sea 

One day, Han Shan said to She Te, “The world slanders me, cheats me, insults me, laughs at me, slights me, degrades me, deludes me, and hates me. What can I do?”

She Te answered, “Just endure it: yield a bit, follow and elude it, tolerate and respect it. Ignore it. See what happens after a few years.”

      “How can you get anything by withdrawing like that,” said Han Shan. “What’s so special about staying out of trouble, anyway?”

      She Te answered, “Once I read Maitreya Bodhisattva’s song, now listen while I sing it for you.

The old fool in tattered robes

Fills his stomach with plain rice;

Mending rags to keep his body warm,

He lets everything trace its own course.

If scolded, he simply says ‘good,’

If beaten, he falls over into sleep.

If someone spits in his face,

The old fool just lets it dry,

And saves his strength and energy,

Others are not provoked.

How can he lament losing the Way since

He has acquired, this Paramita, the jewel

In the wonderful.

The man may be weak, but the mind is not;

The man may be poor, but the Way is not.

He always handles the Way

With single-minded cultivation.

Others in the world cherish glory and splendor,

But he does not wait for them,

For fame and profit always empty.

His mind is without satisfaction or disgust

Because even mountains of gold

Cannot buy off impermanence.

Despite Tze Kung’s eloquence,

The Duke of Chou’s divining ability

Kung Ming’s wise plan,

Fan K’uei’s rescuing his lord from difficulty,

And Han Hsin’s superior efforts (for it was merely one sword which brought him death),

Which of these ancients and contemporaries

Lived for a thousand years?

This one becomes a hero, that one’s valor is stout,

But every year their appearances change,

Their temples turn to white.

A weave of days and months—

Time passing like arrows in flight—

Not long till the head droops

Upon the hands of illness, a dismal sigh…

They do not think themselves old.

Becoming ill they have not managed to cultivate;

If time did not impede, King Yama’s turn,

They would reform, but…

Their breath’s cut off and energy’s exhausted.

That old fool does not discuss

And doesn’t manage domestic affairs,

Or wrangle with you or me.

He does not act bravely, and

Chided, he does not speak.

Questioned, he is a mute.

He pays no heed if assaulted,

And be rolls over if pushed into filthy water

And does not fear people’s laughter.

He does not dress for appearances;

Although children may cry and howl,

He does not hear them.

Those fond of competing for fame and profit

Reap but a barren grave.

But look at those in the world

Who are versed in tastelessness:

They can persuade a ruler to turn his head.

Simply cultivate, become an elder and

With one knife cut off dualistic judgement;

Leap over the blazing pit of suffering

And you are fresh and pure.

When you enlighten to the principle of immortality

The days and months become your neighbors and companions.


     The Art of No Such Thing

I’m trying to be a lady…I think I’m going crazy”

“Shut-up, just Shut-up, Shut-up”

My Shifu, not that one. But the other Shifu. “Dolphins – Polar bears” and “Go means Go”, Shifu had a unique way about him.

After Temple we would put on our shoes, coat, and hat, and ready ourselves for the evening breeze after a two-hour practice. Shifu would put his shoes in his pockets, and place his folded hat, flat on top of his head. We would all look at him and  say, as you would to a child “Oh Shifu, that’s not how you suppose to wear a hat.”

” I need preparation H, not for my butt, but for under my eyes.”  

Ahhhhh. the insanity of it all.

LIFE IS JUST A BOWL OF CHERRIES (1931)

“Life is just a bowl of cherries.
Don’t be so serious; life’s too mysterious.
You work, you save, you worry so,
But you can’t take your dough when you go, go, go.

So keep repeating it’s the berries,
The strongest oak must fall,
The sweet things in life, to you were just loaned
So how can you lose what you’ve never owned?
Life is just a bowl of cherries,

So live and laugh at it all.”

    The dollar has already collapsed. Their system is operating on auto-pilot.

    You must claim yourSELF, and create your own Sovereign Community (see, CEASE and DESIST). Everything is Free and has been reclaimed, you just have to act on it.

    (image: the fare box on the bus illustrates that, the dollar is crossed out, and the coins show no amount on them, and the image is very, very, very light.

    Tell the driver, “Can I get a ride to…” He is oblige to say yes. Why?Because you own your communities, you just have not Stood-Up yet!

    I Declare FREEDOM!

    I won’t let you down.
    I will not give you up.
    Got to have some Faith in the Sound, it’s the one good thing that I got!


    Their Rules are for another Person, Everyone’s got themselves.
    I don’t belong to you, and you don’t belong to me!

    Jamaica Hospital Medical Center
    Held me under a false identity and refuse to correct their records to be in compliance with their states (U.N.) court orders which illustrate I AM not a part of their Jurisdiction, I AM Sovereign, I AM Indigenous and I AM Stateless. See: Joint Commission

    All We have to do is take these Lies (History) and make them True (Expose).
    That’s What YOU Get!

    While I was being held Against My Will at Jamaica Hospital, I was asked who was my next of kin, not emergency contact but next of kin. It was clear they knew what I was saying was true and were attempting to circumvent a way to prevent it.

    Public Record – Public Notice:
    “I, Denderah Cherokee Washitaw Brothers El, do not have a next of kin. Thus, anyone claiming to be my family (Facebook, any other social media or document), should be avoided. Only those who are Indigenous, Stateless, and a Non-Person do I claim as family. All others are agents for the State and Citizens.”

    This movie shows how the Indians were conquered through Religion (and discord).

    Set in 1634 New France (North America) during the period of conflicts known as the Beaver Wars, the film begins in the settlement that will one day become Quebec City. Jesuit (Church/ State) Missionaries try to encourage the local Algonquin Indians to accept Christianity by using deception and conflict with other tribes.

    400 years later their tactics have changed very little. They use the same methods to conquer- Religion, Entertainment, Education and Medicine.

    Movie: Thank God It’s Friday
    “A movie that shows how truly splendid man can be when he is Free and Natural.”


    Find those that are like you vibrationally. Live together, support one another.

    The Fraud, the Birth Certificate

    Collapse The Trust-Nobody Can Be You

    IMPORTANT: Stand Up Heirs to the Land (hidden inside other peoples families)

    I have been conducting a fact-finding weekend into how the governments (States) usurped the land from the original land owners. l discovered many of their agents married into the family of the land owners and stole the land through agreements. An example is the state-issued name on the Birth Certificate. The birth NAME is an agreed-upon lie by people working on behalf of the State to help them claim land. Your physical body is also property. Like a Title Loan the all caps YOU is the collateral borrowed against for State Operations. Your particpation is required for them to take the land and you through your State ID (Passport, Driver’s License, Social Security number).

    Do NOT Vote —Stay Out of Their System!

    You may have to separate from family members that have agreements with Governments.Family members will work against you for personal gain, benefits and profits. Just because you were raised with/or by someone does not mean they are your family and are like you. It has to do with the heart vibration.

    We Stood-Up!
    I need your help to get the below document out, with the first few pages of the U.S. Embassy (Norway) Affidavit Dec. 22, 2011 found at American Relinquish IMPLIED U.S. Citizenship to Save Lives to all court houses and tell them TO FILE. They will give it a miscellaneous file number in their court records. The complete document was also hand delivered to the United Nations Indigenous Issues Dept on April 20, 2015.

    Send it to all county court houses by Fax, Email, Certified Mail, or Return Receipt. Especially those small impoverished southern towns like Dillon County, Scotsland County, Marion County, Mullins County in South Carolina and North Carolina.


    Help Us To Stand Together

    Collapse the Trusts, Transfer the Deeds.

    I do not have a “Mother” or a “Father”, both are terms to denote State citizens and property through the Birth Certificate. I AM Stateless and the Indigenous Heir to the Lands and all its resources.
