Supersoul 13

Kung Fu Cowboy autobiography 2013
Supersoul
Discovering the Soul of God

by
Richard Del Connor
"Buddha Z"


Discovering the Soul of God

Supersoul 13: Discovering the Soul of God is the autobiography of Richard Del Connor, writing under the author name of Buddha Z. As a traveling stagehand during the summer of 2013, he evaluates, comments and shares excerpts of the ancient Vedic scriptures he discovered on the way home from working a Kenny Chesney concert at Anaheim Stadium. Richard, known as "Kung Fu Cowboy" to his fellow stagehands, begins to believe that all humans possess two souls: an individual personal soul plus a small piece of God, the Supersoul which returns to God when we die. This piece of God is described by Richard as the "black box" of our life that replays our events for our "final judgement."

Richard, known as "Buddha Zhen" to his Tai Chi and Shaolin Kung Fu students, explains that our relationship with our Supersoul defines our spiritual life. "Right and wrong" is our harmonizing or conflicting with this second soul within us.

Supersoul is an ancient Hindu concept that will modernize the way people can understand their relationship to God.

History of Zen from A to Z

The Bible according to Satan
History of Zen
from A to Z

by
Richard Del Connor
"Buddha Z"


The History of Heaven and Zen
  (according to Saten, aka Satan)

This is a unique book about Zen history by Buddha Zhen, founder of the Shaolin Zen
Buddhist CyberTemple at www.shaolinZEN.org The book starts with: "In the beginning -- there was Zen." The book ends with: "What's your Zen?

Here is the newest truth that will revolutionize traditional thinking as it exposes 4,000 years of spiritual coverups and human heresy, according to his "inside source." Co-written by "Saten?" (Satan said he wanted a new spelling for his new image.) Richard awoke to see and hear a group of Angels gathered around God at their center, talking. Unable to go back to sleep, "They wouldn't stop talking," Richard wrote this unique viewof history. Saten explained that the letters of the alphabet were originally the sounds used to teach God's "pets" to talk. Evidently, the angels taught the "C"-things to communicate -- without God's approval.

The story of Adam and Eve is revealed including: Saten's tempting of Eve in the Garden of Eden. Other stories include, the Tower of Babel, and a new version of the creation of Zen Buddhism by Bodhidharma -- with Saten alongside. Christians will marvel at this new spiritual story, Saten's version of the angels, "falling from Heaven," as well as the many other biblical stories he communicated to author, Richard Del Connor. "The Great Deceiver," or "King of Lies," can be believed or disbelieved -- it's up to you. He says he was just following God's instructions.

Bonus items include:  "Great Salt Lake," and "You've Been Sold"

Masonic Kung Fu - BOOK 1

1939 Freemason learns Kung Fu in China
Masonic Kung Fu
Book 1

Richard Del Connor


Coyote Unlocks Freemason Secrets of 1937

For decades, Buddha Zhen has been saying to his students and friends, "I want to make a movie about Kung Fu that will inspire Americans to understand Chinese martial arts... and to pursue those heroic values in their own lives." This may be the story he was waiting for -- written after accidentally stumbling onto the secrets of Freemasonry, cleverly encoded in a popular Kung Fu form, "Lian Bu," or "Ling Po," taught to him by two famous Chinese Kung Fu masters, Dr. Kam Yuen of the Tai Mantis Federation and Grandmaster Wong Jack Man of the Jing Mo Association.

Richard researched the history of this Kung Fu Form and discovered it was created by a Chinese martial artist who added it to the Chinese government Jing Mo school in 1938, as the Japanese were invading China. Richard will continue to research this Kung Fu and has been assured the assistance of the Chinese Free & Accepted Masons.

Impatient for enough research to write the true story of this Masonic Kung Fu, Richard Del Connor decided to write this novel during his research of the British Freemasons, probably responsible for transmitting these "Masonic Secrets" to a Chinese Kung Fu master. In 1938, Chinese were not allowed to submit applications to become Freemasons.

So here it is: Chinese teenage heroes, a British Freemason, and an invading army of Japanese infantry. Based upon true incidents and the Masonic Kung Fu dance discovered by Richard Del Connor on June 9, 2009 after he became a 3rd Degree Master Mason.
All 3 Masonic Kung Fu books take place in China:
BOOK 1: 1937-1938 The Japanese Invasion
BOOK 2: 1938-1940 The Jing Mo school
BOOK 3: 1941-1942 The Shaolin Master

Bonus items included:  "Flintridge Fire," and "Hiram Abif"

The AntiChrist

A book to change the world?
The AntiChrist

by
Richard Del Connor


Wow! Bastards and Saints... Who's Who?

This book is so controversial and upsetting that we cannot offer it for sale without a release form. There is some amazing poetry and beautiful rhymes... and enlightening historical information... and rarely known Biblical information... and then incest, rape, lies, treachery, deceit, cover-ups, inbreeding and child abuse...

This book is ripe for a book burning but it's all true?

Without the required release form we can't protect many of the people involved in this book. Many of the culprits and victims are dead, but since some of their descendents are alive...

Vengeance, retribution and condemnation aren't going to benefit or balance any of these crimes -- so you won't be able to purchase this book unless you agree not to harass or question any of Coyote's relatives. Even the Biblical stories will cause despair and anger in many readers. Perhaps we should wait another 100 years before releasing this book?

"The Hippy Coyote"


Coyote's 2nd EPIC POEM

In the absence of a lover or love affair, Richard's creativity and romantic nature explored their farthest limits of imagination and remembrance. After purging himself in his Rainbow In The Shade poetry book, Richard discovered some romantic memories hidden for decades. These unanswerable questions drove our poor Zen Pup into a poetic odyssey of self-discovery.

These poems are the intellectual and spiritual journey of Coyote's submission to his memories. Follow his poetic soul's quest for love with willingness to take the blame for lost loves.

In 2010 Richard wrote most of the Human Values for Success in Family and Business. He was proud to announce it's completion on his birthday of 2011.
    
Then he wrote the following:
     Poetry Books of 2011:
          BOOK 1: Rainbow In The Shade
          BOOK 2: The Potatoe Valentine & Other Love Poems
          BOOK 3: The AntiChrist

     Science Book of 2011:
          BOOK 7: Connor Black Hole Bubble Theory
                                   
This is the book that bridged the gap between Coyote's romantic memories and the unknown possibilities due to the secrets and deceptions he was a victim of.

Rainbow In The Shade -
     Biography of The Happy Hippie

Rainbow in the Shade

by
Richard Del Connor
"The Hippy Coyote"


Antiwar Biography of The Happy Hippie

This is Coyote's FIRST EPIC POEM. Since 1964, Coyote wrote poems and lyrics that strived for brevity and symbolism using as few words as possible and taking up as little space on the paper as possible. This poetic shorthand inspired some unique rhymes and created multiple meanings for short phrases. These bewildering poems were inspiration to thousands of readers who developed their own interpretations of these stories and scenes. Coyote decided that people enjoyed their own decodings and established a 40-year period of secrecy regarding his true intentions while writing these lyrics and poems.

We still encourage you to find your own interpretations of Coyote's writings. Even when Coyote now reveals his own personal motives and perspectives for writing these poems, he also insists that even he had other meanings and intentions that were either personal or hidden for the readers to discover by their level of interest and wit.

This poem, "RAINBOW IN THE SHADE," is Coyote's first poem that exceeds 10,000 words, qualifying it as both a one-poem book, and an EPIC POEM in the tradition of Lord Byron, Wordsworth, and John Milton. Coyote's poetic growth and enlightenment reached new heights in 2011 as he followed this epic poem with two other epic poems, "The AntiChrist," and "The Potatoe Valentine."

Bonus items included:  "House of Rejection," and "My Woman Is My Wife"

Connor Black Hole Bubble Theory

The beginning and end of our universe
Black Hole Bubble Theory

by
Richard Del Connor


Coyote Explains Black Holes, Big Bang, and Reality

During Coyote's years in UCLA he spent time in the UCLA library and book store where he studied books on Zen Buddhism and Quantum Physics. In 1987 Coyote finally understood travelling beyond the speed of light and existence beyond our 3-dimensional awareness. This led to several years of enlightenment that would for the first time in human history explain gravity, the origins of our universe and what black holes actually are.

Hiding his journals from prying eyes Coyote sought a book publisher to aid him in enlightening the world. None were interested. Publishers decided that Coyote's wild theories would "shake up the fabric of human civilization and lead to ultimate chaos." Wow. Appears the Vatican is still controlling the world's science.

So now, for the first time anywhere or anytime in human history, these theories are revealed to the public. If anyone else has been similarly enlightened they were killed or silenced. From 2008 to 2011, Coyote sent letters to Professor Stephen Hawking and several of his contempories and scientific rivals. Every one of them refused to comment on these theories of Coyote because it would cause each of them to rewrite their scientific theories and equations.

This is a glimpse into Coyote's theories that the world's publishers want him to keep concealed and buried in his storage locker.

"The Hippy Coyote"


The 1984 Rock Opera That Transformed A Doggie

This is the ROCK OPERA that Coyote was performing in Los Angeles night clubs and universities starting in 1984 until 1989. Michael J. Fox enjoyed it so much he became a supporter of the show and performed on stage with Coyote. During this increased press exposure, the newspapers began referring to Richard Del Connor as, "Coyote." Hence, as Coyote would reluctantly admit, "When my girlfriend Jennifer began referring to me as, "Coyote," I accepted my new given name.

Coyote was attending UCLA Film School, (he graduated in 1988), and wrote this rock opera incorporating recent songs that were inspired by a broken romance with Lori Wilhelm. The result: a rock opera, COYOTE IN A GRAVEYARD that takes place in a mental hospital. The hero of this story, Thumper, has halucinations that other people can see and he has a second residence in a nearby cemetary...

The Fourth of Coyote's First Poetic Season of Life

Completed just prior to becoming, "The Coyote," our Zen Pup strives to become a man and a hero. Having graduated from his Autumn Flavours study of the darkness within humans, to the immature loves of Winter Flowers, to the lusty sexual explorations of Spring Fevers... our folk rock troubadour emerges in Summer Forevers with a spiritual foundation for his manhood.

At age 30, Richard Del Connor, The Hippy Coyote, (known as "Buddha Zhen" since 2007), pieces together his biblical role models, Robin Hood, and James Bond 007, to become "Richard O'Connor." Not having a father or mother to guide him, he digs into his family Irish heritage to find purpose in his life. This book also begins to hint at Coyote's desire to have a family of his own.

This poetry book has NASTY stuff in it.

This is romantic, sexy, and sometimes bizarre and kinky.

WARNING: Adults ONLY

Back in the 1970s, this was really nasty, because Coyote was really young.

Now, it may not seem so perverted -- but some of these poems wer Coyote's attempts to stretch and experiment with sexual boundaries... as he was in real life.

This has some true sex, some fantasy sex, and some sex we'd rather not talk about at all.

Written in the early 1970s, Coyote's troubled youth is exorcised here in a poetic vicariousness.
Murderous headlines of the times, suicide, revenge, and cannibalism are all here.
Yuck.
Hopefully Coyote didn't have to spin his head in a circle to spit out these words of suffering.

It's not ALL dark, and gloomy.
