Welcome to Austronesia

You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. But we WILL let you believe otherwise, until you grow up!

((LATE BREAKING – Pres. Tsai is now scheduled to leave next Sunday, 12 Aug 18, for Los Angleles, en route to South America, and on her return trip, I think she just is not going to be able to keep from tearing up one tiyewtally hip little burg known as Houston. Go get ’em, Tiger! And Bon Voyage Nuiloa! 2018年8月10日, 华盛顿 — 台湾总统蔡英文星期天启程前往中南美巴拉圭及伯利兹进行九天八夜的访问))

In reading a Chinese-language account of Taiwan President Tsai Yingwen’s recent talk to a “South Island Ethnicity” (南岛民族) discussion forum, I was amazed to discover that the proper English translation to this is “Austronesian,” something that I was unaware of, and I immediately suspected that the Western scientific community has gone beyond “Polynesian,” which was their creation to start with. Check it out:

Source: http://www.languagesgulper.com/eng/Austronesian.html

The political and geographical center of gravity in this language group, of which Hawaiian is a member, isn’t Hawaii. It’s Indonesia, the largest Muslim country on earth by population. And the dominant language in this group is not the Hawaiian language. The dominant language here is actually Maylay, spoken primarily in Indonesia and Malaysia. So much for Polynesian ethno-centrism.

The Taiwan indigenous tribes are included in this group, and President Tsai Yingwen’s mother had indigenous blood. Her father was also Hakka Chinese, so she is a product of two of the most victimized ethnic minorities on earth! The way this works in the Pacific theatre is that, if the indigenous person’s tribe’s language is related to another indigenous islander’s language, those two people have blood in common, and that means that President Tsai of Taiwan is related to ethnic Hawaiians by blood, and more than that, she was raised by an indigenous mother whose lifestyle was completely consistent with Polynesian norms, and it shows. According to the above Chinese article, written by someone who observed her interactions in an indigenous community (one of many that she visits, apparently) in her native cultural context, President Tsai is a world-class schmoozer and raconteur who loves to talk about her people and their history and origins, and the native Hawaiian community would quickly and naturally become part of that discussion, if she were here.

To make a long story short, President Tsai is currently the most successful Ali’i in this genome, and we should get her here to give some bright new Ali’i ideas to the locals, from a different POV, don’t you know? Since she’s so effective and stuff… I’m sure that she could do that, and it would be automatic natural cultural behavior for her. It would probably wind up being a lot of fun for the whole Hawaiian community as well.

God has given me the gift of recognizing political talent. That’s why I was able to predict Donald Trump’s election on the day he declared his candidacy, and so I don’t mind informing you that President Tsai is a huge political talent in the making. She loves to travel, and she is destined to be back and forth across the Pacific frequently. If we can get her here once, she’ll be back, and could become a regular, which I wouldn’t mind at all, albeit that she most definitely moves in different circles than mine.

So this imperishable old robeless monk will leave the details of this up to those who know how to get such things done. Political involvement is a serious Precept violation for me. I just have a few opinions and recommendations here and there, and no one is obliged to listen to me.

Newsletter 4.8 – August 2018

The Maitreyayana Newsletter, Vol 4., No. 8 – August 2018

Of Chinese-Language Christian Hymns

This is my current Chinese-language Christian repertoire, graded by my preference:

1. Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty (圣哉三一歌)
2. Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee (快樂歌) (J. S. Bach)
3. What a Friend We Have in Jesus (恩友歌)
4. Jesus Loves Me (耶稣爱我)
5. Majesty (敬拜主)
6. Rock of Ages (万古磐石歌)
7. Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us (赐副救主歌)
8. Mine Eyes have Seen the Glory (上帝进行歌)

Still in the pipeline is:

9. A Mighty Fortress is Our God (坚固保障歌) (Martin Luther). I’m hoping to have this downloaded in simplified characters, and transcribed to something that I can sing from, by this evening.

All of these lyrics, with the exception of “Majesty,” have been sourced from a 1957 Methodist Chinese-language hymnal attributed to THE COUNCIL OF CHRISTIAN LITERATURE FOR OVERSEAS CHINESE, published in Hong Kong. I’ve gone online to convert the traditional characters in it to the current simplified standard, and in doing that, I have encountered other lyrics, but have discovered in all cases that I prefer the lyrics in this publication to later versions.

Getting these nine numbers up to speed will keep me busy until October 1, because I only practice Christian hymns for one hour per day on four weekdays. After that I will go to Christmas carols and to an expanded repertoire, because this Hymnal contains dozens of Chinese-language Christmas carols with which I am already familiar, and some of the most important of which I already practiced in English last Christmas season.

Basically I’m singing Christian material in Chinese anymore because I think that what China really needs right now is actually Christianity, and what America really needs right now is Buddhism. I, of course, am an American Buddhist lineage holder who follows Meher Baba (“Maitreya Meher”), whose intention is to put ALL the major religions together “like beads on one string.” The first step in that is to make all beads equally important, please!

恭喜台湾总统蔡英文就册立为 [北京最厉害的对手]

来源:VOA – 蔡英文是北京“最厉害的对手”?(2018年7月16日)

正在蔡英文对全国党代表大会豪爽地发言之后,则浮现过这套我可非常同意的东西:

。。。与此同时,有台湾媒体引用北京学者的评论撰文分析蔡英文的内在特质与对外政策,说她其实有一套非常高明的战略,坚守底线、绝不退让,但也不冒进、不挑衅,在美中两强博弈之间坐收渔翁之利,可以说是北京眼中“最可敬的对手、最厉害的敌人”?

那我唯一的意见就是:请把问号失掉了吧! 以主动定义了! 马上咯! 驾到了目前那么危险的关键,有所为者并非定义不可了。 我也很不会跟一位北京专家争执。 那北京有系,台北有蔡,每方有其名号,那双方互相有平等地位吧。 那尽可能有定义的为校,两岸平等地位终于曾经设立了把。

该场麻烦完毕了,喝杯茶吧。

就把下一套的臭麻烦给我带来吧!

Newsletter4.7 – July 2018

The Maitreyayana Newsletter, Vol. 4., No. 7 – July 2018

I am continuing my Chinese language studies, primarily by listening to and reading VOA’s Chinese edition, and occasionally I also hit rfa. This is basically a full-time job for me right now. I’ve decided not to comment on that content, because the Chinese government is fundamentally a Chinese problem. ((No, wait! Mission redirect! When I eventually do comment, I will do it in Chinese first. –vshr))

President Donald Trump is effectively putting an end to Xi Jinping’s career, which is what I hired him to do in the first place. Mah Best Bu-hoy just cain’t help being his cute li’l ole awesome self! That whole process, which is completely obvious on the Chinese side, is still invisible to the English language press, which is still buying the Chinese government’s robo-pimped-from-space anti-American propaganda lock, stock, and barrel, and so be that as well. Fixing the utterly broken English-language media is also not fundamentally my kuleana either. It would be different if they had enough credibility to get something done in the real world, but they’ve lost it completely. Having been bought by experts, they are now utterly useless.

((HINT: Tariffs don’t kill trade, they redirect it. In the hands of someone like The. Donald., who has spent his entire life learning how to make money actually obtain real prosperity for existing people, they can clear the ground for some actual real-world dependable and progressive productivity in China, literally for the first time in the 4,000+ year history of that society. But first the stinking garbage has to be cleared off the site, please! Only then will the long-suffering Chinese people (又可怜又可爱上的中国老百姓) finally be able to share in the prosperity which is now the common and expected norm for civilized nations on this planet.

BTW, IMO Donald Trump is not going to compromise with China about these tariffs. He will leave them in place, and most probably escalate them as well, unless and until there is a regime change in China, and he himself will be re-elected in 2020 in any event. He is doing to Communist China with massive tariffs what Ronald Reagan did to the Soviet Union with massive defense spending, and in doing that, his aim is just as true as was The. Great. Communicator’s. He has read his quarry right, and he WILL slay this foe of the entire free world, and (God willing and the crik don’t run dry) he WILL do it without firing one single (crude, hurtful, and SO, SO primitive) gun-round on the ground.

The. Donald. is right about the cumulative effect of his tariffs. They will improve both the American economy and the Chinese economy. America will still be first, but “a rising tide raises all boats.” That Xi Jinping, that vicious and shameless predator, must necessarily be a casualty of this is not Trump’s problem. And while we’re in this area, Xi Jinping is not my problem, he’s not your problem, he’s not our government’s problem, and he is not the Chinese people’s problem. Only God can solve Xi Jinping. Xi has made sure of that, and Xi WILL get his, directly from the Final Authority, and Xi’s days are now most certainly numbered.–vshr))

That’s the news from sunny Hawaii, where the beautiful women dance, the strong men sing, and ye olde humuhumunukunukupua’a fish just can’t help keeping on to just keep on swimming bye. Oh, and hey, good buddy, you may also kyieome hohn bigh as well, and YOU WILL keep on truckin, because Ahm a-cyoun’tin’ on you!

Next problem please.

Next Three-sided Story, Please!

Ref: There are always THREE sides to a story

It seems from my adventures in American military fiction, primarily by Dale Brown, Tom Clancy, and Clive Cussler, that Sunzi’s Art of War is in good odor in the American military establishment. So this is just a little heads-up to that literary industry and the American defense community that it serves. Miyamoto Musashi is to Sunzi what Tokugawa Ieyasu is to Popeye the Sailor Man, and the key to that fact is this verb “percieve” that we find in the third line of this short quote from Musashi. What Sunzi has is doctrine, and doctrine doesn’t win wars. What wins wars (and battles, and dog-fights, and surgical strikes) is the trained PERCEPTION which will infallibly tell you what particular doctrine will enable you to slay foe NOW. There is not one single sentence in Musashi’s Gorin no Sho, aka Book of Five Rings which does not address that art in one way or another.

Musashi was the most awesome and effective warrior, by any criterion, that ever took birth in East Asia, and it would be absolutely futile of me to try to represent what any third party could take away from him, but I will assert that any given paragraph of Musashi is worth more, by orders of magnitude, than all of Sunzi and his entire tradition put together.

Music Repertoire Changes

My Guidance has it that I am to stop using Hawaiian language completely, and go to Chinese lyrics. I choose not to comment on the reasons for this except to write that I don’t need a sacred language other than my beautiful mother tongue English. Since the latest Avatar of God (Meher Baba – Maitreya Meher) spoke and wrote English, English is now as sacred as traditional liturgical languages such as Sanskrit, Arabic, or classical Chinese (I do not include Hawaiian in this list because as sacred as it definitely is, Hawaiian has never been, and can never be, the language of a planetary mainstream culture). If I choose to use another language besides my mother tongue, it’s because I’m working on the part of the human mass mind that is associated with that language. Since China is the nation that is in the most trouble right now, I choose to sing Christian hymns in Chinese. If I did not act in this way, it would be unethical to call me a Bodhisattva.

This repertoire change is effective today, 18 Jun 18, for all Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Meher Baba repertoire continues to be in effect for all Saturdays, Sundays, and Thursdays.

It will take some time to get this new repertoire configured, and during that transition period, I will sing anything but Hawaiian lyrics in spare time. For today, I have already configured Jesus Loves Me, This I Know (耶稣爱我歌), Savior like a Shepherd Lead us (赐副救主歌), and What a Friend We Have in Jesus (恩友歌).

It will undoubtedly take me a couple of months to fill out this repertoire, and to get fluent with it, and that will be almost to September, time to start preparing for my yearly Xmas carol program, which this year will be in Chinese. The old Methodist Chinese hymnal that I saved from obscurity or worse, at the Main Library’s yearly used book sale in McKinley HS cafeteria, contains a full repertoire of Christmas carols.

Newsletter 4.6 – June 2018

The Maitreyayana Newsletter, Vol 4. No. 6, June 2018

Not much to report this month. I’ve decided to spend a couple more months working on my Chinese language before I seriously start to focus on the Tai Xuan Jing. But I’m not going to visit NTDTV anymore, because the fundamental POV of the Fa Lun Gong which owns it is just too cultic for me. The CCP’s days are in fact numbered, because that is their destiny which they have richly earned, but the final causality of their inevitable fall is up to God aka the Buddha, not the Fa Lun Gong.

With respect to Chinese language though, I’m now into the wonderful world of Taiwan discussion threads, which are often visited by those (soon to be legendary, some of them, I believe) “Wall-Jumpers” from across the Taiwan Straits. Frankly, I like Wall Jumpers. At least they’re doing something better with their lives than to constantly suck up to every Party cadre and/or cult honcho that may randomly float down any given street or thread, that is, at least they’re showing some Spirit, which is the real key to the general failure of the current Chinese government, which imagines that it can rule by crushing the spirit of the Chinese people.

Spirit is also the key to the FLG’s ongoing failure to crash the CCP. If they published every single piece of dirt that they have on the CCP, in English, in the planetary mainstream media, instead of weakly hiding the extent of their real grievances behind thier own language, while also using gleeful parades alternated with terrifying exhibits in an ongoing campaign simply to obstruct traffic*, I guarantee you that the CCP could be history in a matter of months.

*obstruction of traffic by parades and displays — “But they’re learning a trade” you say. I think not. They’re getting very good at interfering with normal human life, and it’s basically CCP political tactics with smiles and wierd loud clothes pasted on. If you put the major actors in dunce caps and got extras from Appalachia and the docks and dressed everybody in black, and made them stay up for three nights by yelling at them through bull horns until all they could do would be to mumble and shuffle, the whole scene would be right out of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, Inner Mongolia, 1968.

So WHY do you hide behind your foreign language but then also play such bizarre street games, my FLG friends? It is because you fear to violate the ancient Chinese taboo against Chinese criticizing other Chinese before outsiders, is it not? That taboo, however orthodox it may be in Confucianist terms, and for however many generations your ancestors may have honored it, is just pure damned despicable spiritual weakness for you in the present. This particular spiritual weakness, that you constantly and habitually demonstrate, kills your entire influence in the West, because you are claiming to have a spiritual transmission. I’m sorry, but spiritual transmission is proven by real demonstrated power to cause change, not by either mere sweet words and heavenly art, nor by mere terrifying graphics displayed impersonally and dispassionately by non-witnesses of fact.

I’m really sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but incandescently-garbed Chinese traipsing through the streets like monkeys doesn’t really say “Spiritual Transmission” to anyone, but especially not to Westerners. Yes, there will always be groupies that tell you what you want to hear. But what you want to hear is not really your issue now. Your real issue is WHAT YOU NEED TO SAY, and what you need to WRITE, before outsiders, in English, in the core publications of the planetary mainstream, about the evil deeds of some key members of your ethnic group. And yes, it is specifically ETHNIC CHINESE IN POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY that are the perpetrators, and these people are exactly those that you must now thoroughly and forthrightly excoriate, and this behavior is exactly what you have been conditioned, by 4,000+ years of very brutal and unforgiving cultural conditioning, to never, ever dare, is it not? It most certainly is, and so deal with it starting this very instant!

Therefore, my friends, no more monkeyshines, please! Major articles that name names in major dailies in every major metropolis in the West! And be prepared to not only quote your sources, but to trot out live witnessses as well, and with my blessing

DO IT !!!

There are always THREE sides to a story.

The Hegelian Dialectic, with its basic, critical and defining three stages, is the closest approximation of one of the lost Protocols of the Great Mother that exists either in Western thought or in the modern Chinese mainstream. Three is the number of the Mother in Her role as the Consort of God. Her Protocols, which I am destined to decode from the Tai Xuan Jing, are fundamental to the sacred Dharma of this Lineage.

The above title is not what we hear, at least in the Western mainstream. What we hear is the eternal dominance of duality which decrees the wisdom that there are always (exactly and specifically) TWO sides to a story. I have agreed with that going in (which was forced on me by the structure of my mother tongue in this life), but on further examination, why stop at two? What is the supreme value of two, that we must necessarily stop there? If we examine this deeply enough, I believe that we must necessarily arrive, at some stage, at the PERCEPTION (as discriminated from doctrine, thought, or conviction) that two not only has no special virtue as a place to stop, but that there are exceedingly valid arguments that two is, in fact, is THE WORST POSSIBLE PLACE to stop, because the inevitable outcome of stopping there, at least in the emotional context of this planet right now, is conflict leading to violence, that is dualistic polarization kills civilized behavior quite predictably and automatically.

So where do we come up with a third party to a dualistic standoff that is breaking bad (and let’s face it they’re ALL breaking bad right now)? The natural third is the POV of the observer, that is, in this online context, the media. Huh? You mean that they’re CAUSING all this acrimony? I thought their job was to REPORT real information. Well, I’m sorry, but every member of the press who thought that is now either retired or dead. The new press thinks that their job is to cause trouble by taking a side, because that’s what they get paid to do.

So let’s leave their profoundly dysfunctional buns right there where we found them, and look at exactly where they dropped the ball that their elders and betters tried to hand them. It’s all about their RESPONSIBILITY to have their own independent POV, and by doing that, to be the third party which can’t help damping a rush to dualistic stupidity, simply by being present.

One of the prime movers in this duality-fixiation of the West, after an Indo-European language (English), is Hollywood, with its perfectly grotesque addiction to the obligatory (ahem) DRAMATIC CONFLICT, without which no script can possibly be taken seriously. Next movie industry please. I’ve seen what Hollywood can do, and I am signally unamused. Let us no longer delude ourselves that the inextinguishable violence in American schools has nothing to do with the Hollywood productions that American school children constantly view.

Newsletter4.5 – May 2018

Newsletter4.5 – May 2018

The Maitreyayana Newsletter, Vol. 4 No. 5 – May 2018

Practice Update

I reached my physical excercise goal on 18 April, well ahead of schedule. I’m going to continue at the same level, but not every day. There are some days on which I just need to write as a priority, primarily to the basic Dharma of this lineage. I will not report on this matter here again.

Of Chinese Language and Waves of Suffering across the Big Water

Another thing I’m also doing as a matter of practice is to systematically study vocabulary for receptive Chinese speech. I do that by watching selective video clips from NTDTV, which as it turns out, was established by Fa Lun Gong, which quite understandably is anti-CCP, since that group has been viciously and continuously persecuted by the CCP for decades. But then rather than get infected by that affect, which would serve nothing, I focus on the terminology I can’t understand, downloading the transcripts, making flash cards, and plugging these basics for hours every day. I really feel called to do this now.

There is an ethical component in the fierce conflict between the CCP and the rest of the planet, which is absolutely my kuleana as well, simply because I have normal human values, and in good time I may address those ethical issues, which are distinct from the geopolitical dynamics which I am forbidden by my basic Precepts to get involved with. I expect the existing situation with China to break bad in short order.

I don’t need news services in any language to know what’s really happening in China. I’ve felt the titanic waves of suffering that are produced in the ethers by the suffering of the Chinese people since 1968, when I was stationed on Taiwan. Now those waves are as strong in the middle of the Pacific as they were on the coastal island of Taiwan in 1968.

Of Kahu Ken Makuakane and Kawaiaha’o Church

On May 6th I had a good time at Kawaiaha'o Church attending the new Kahu Ken Makuakane's first lecture, and took communion for the third time, greeted the Kahu on leaving for the second time, and arrived early, recieved a kukui nut lei and a key to the Kingdom, and sat in the front pews, all for the first time. I think that I will make a habit out of going there because, besides the general friendliness, it's the only place I've found on this island where I can sing the way God intended me to sing, in the company of others.

After the service, I went across the street to the Hawaii Book and Music Festival because I am still hot on the trail of Hawaiian-language hymnals. I did get some hot leads on those, but I also found a music and dance program which Kahu had helped produce, and it was clear to me that by the first day of actually being on the job, he was already getting concrete results in my biggest complaint about the local Hawaiian music scene: "What. Happened. To. The. 'Hawaiian. Renaissance.?'" In fact, everyone in the State knows what happened to it; it was eaten by street drugs, unethical and chaotic sex (both of those courtesy of the "Visitor Industry") and traitorous Hawaiian producers who let techy Millineums from the US mainland persuade them that their rythm-and-grove-box-driven fusion jazz could be passed off as "Slack-Key Guitar," and that local audiences would buy this.

The locals didn't buy this, but neither did they do anything effective about it. They just stopped going to music programs, and those empty arenas killed what was left of the H. Renaissance, which began in the 80's and yielded some of the best music ever written or performed in any language in its heyday.

But at least now there's Makuakane (that Hawaiian root literally means "Father!'), who apparently can't help bringing many of his old Hawaiian Renaissance contacts back on task, while also providing appropriate forums for some of the best local talent in the Millineum Generation. How does he do it? Damned if I know. I think it's kind of part of who he is. He just breaths in and out, and it happens.

* * * * * * * * *

Well shucks folks, I think that’s the news from the Land of Aloha. But, hey, seriously, China is in trouble. The last time I was in Chinatown the Chinese Mainland merchants were dumping vegetables at below cost across the board, a behavior that I’ve never seen before, and I seriously suspect that it means they’re getting ready to pull out of the State. Chinese friends, I do not advise you to return to China. I advise you to join the winning side by going to earth in sunny Hawaii.
