Another fine day,
perfect for a workout!
Let’s talk about Monkeyland.
For those of you new to the newsletter,
Monkeyland is the name of the place
where I set up a retreat
where people lived and practiced martial arts.
Free from the distraction of the world.
A western version of Shaolin,
in a manner of speaking.
About three years ago
I moved to a mountaintop
just outside Santa Maria.
I lived there for a little over a year.
There were a lot of problems.
One was that there was no internet connection.
The well went dry a couple of times.
And so on and so on.
there were a lot of solutions.
Fixed the well,
set up a solar panel installation to power things,
and lots of other stuff.
And weird stuff happened.
One was that I made extra money
by running a crematorium for animals.
the little furries reached the end of their lives,
and it was up to me to dispose of the carcasses.
It actually wasn’t bad,
Dead things don’t gross me out,
I actually said a little prayer for the guys,
and sent them off to the next body,
with a heartfelt prayer.
The only thing that bothered me was
they smell like hamburger.
Now that was gross.
Made me wonder what I’ll smell like
when this body gets cremated.
I worked out as much as I could.
I had a severely injured shoulder.
Was on vicodin for a few years,
on a scale of 1-10,
was an 11.
So I got an operation,
and was immediately off vicoden.
The docs were worried I would be addicted.
Not a chance.
I have the martial arts on my side.
the owner of the property and I had a falling out.
A neighbor ran over his dog
and he blamed me.
Didn’t matter that i told him not to encourage
the dogs to chase trucks,
it was my fault.
Closed up shop and moved back
to the big city.
I was back.
So the last year or so
I have been recovering.
from financial straights,
and so on.
all I can think about
is getting back to Monkeyland.
Where can I go
that I won’t run into psychotic landlords,
where I can do martial arts,
and teach all the things I’ve learned.
I want to either end up in
just below Santa Cruz.
Got to be a few acres sitting out there,
where idiots don’t abound.
I wouldn’t mind Idylewild,
which is just above Palm Springs.
Not as lush,
but quite beautiful.
Tai Chi is just one of the arts to be taught at Monkeyland!
Here’s the thing,
it’s not just teaching the martial arts.
believe it or don’t,
is not just about teaching martial arts.
People live there.
They grow veggies and cook.
They help the community.
They do lots of stuff
that most people don’t think of.
So the point here is
how can Monkeyland become self sufficient.
One way is pushing the books and videos I’ve done.
I’ve barely scratched the surface,
there are so many people out there
that think I’m just scamming,
have never read a book,
or looked at a video.
What I want to do is…
teach the martial arts
set up solar panels which create our source of energy, and even tap into air wells.
Build a small community, using such things as cargo containers, so that people can live.
Recover land using certain modern irrigation methods.
And so on.
how am I going to do this?
I need to push the books and videos
so that people understand
there are actual martial arts in existence.
Not tournament stuff,
not just reality.
But martial arts that grow the human being,
and create abilities that are thought of only in legend.
I will probably look for grants.
See if I can find somebody,
which is willing to back such a venture.
And there will be.
Recovering the land?
Delving into modern technologies
for such things as water and energy,
there are going to be corporations who want to grant.
I have a year or two of catching up on book writing,
making sure that all methods are sharp and ready to go,
I have to write complete plans.
I have to have a massive and detailed cost estimate,
and in that estimate
will be plans
for how Monkeyland will support itself.
You can’t live off people,
you need to support yourself.
And i know that there are a lot of martial artists
who would like to spend a few weeks in Martial Arts paradise,
or even a lifetime.
So that’s the skinny on Monkeyland.
Now you know what happened,
and what can be done about it.
I know there are a few readers out there.
Maybe even reading this newsletter,
so if you want to know where the concept
for Monkeyland came from,
order the book…
It’s a series,
starts off with race wars,
and then goes crazy.
The whole series covers the enslavement of planet earth,
reveals how we are being ruled,
and by who,
and most important…
what can be done about it.
And it is all based on actual planet earth facts.
you will see the seeds for Monkeyland
during the course of that series.
time for me to get crackin’,
got lots of stuff to do,
including working out.
so do you!
I’ll talk to you later…
have a great work out!
