Beliefistic Behaviorism

LeftBrain thought powers
follow RightBrain warm light and cold dark feelings.

Like behavior follows beliefs
follow repeated warm/cold rituals
follow entrenched belief networks
building walls between appositional changes
of positive/negative trend directions
too often complexly confused

With antithetical divine/human
outside/inside oxymoronic opposition
where ecological true cannot be a false ego-unlogical thesis
and must be, at least LeftBrain deductively
left not not false right now,
holistically here
in time-spaced flows
of felt health climate passage.

Transitioning revolutionary future thoughts follow past resonant
and dissonant,
healthy and pathological feelings,
and apathetic unfeelings
follow learned and inherited behaviors
follow integral beliefs in past through future eternal memories
felt sacred as DNA enscriptions
toward healthy light integrity
absorbs pathological dark ego-sectarian mendacity

So too,
future ecoschool non-violent instructions
formulas felt
and thought Win/Win descriptive
of past healthy memories

Told and then written down as sacred scripture thoughts
originally eco-theological
following light and dark strictures
felt secularly ecological,
refining risky LeftBrain oppositional limits of thought
defining Whole NonViolent Systems
RightBrain felt as holonically integral Win/Win opportunity,

Synergetic healthy climate thoughts
following feelings for cooperative eco-schooled
ego-listening for WinWin reweaving integrity.


Muses Never Die

Like all Earth’s timeless Muses,
Musicians never die,
we just keep improvising
on resonant themes of fading elder voices.

Apathy, especially about Earth muses,
is not necessarily an inevitable pathological anti-empathic EgoCentrism

Growing cynical about life’s authentic opportunities
need not always invite death’s terminating risks.

Muses have never said we are realistic
or rational,
thinking only of narrow walls
protecting fearful and angry anthro-capital city demi-gods.

Sacred Muse resident cooperatives
could become mutually invited and resonant places
without capital-driven anthropocentric Win/Lose competitions.

Resonant therapeutic music
and healthy movement
can yet emerge from liberal democratic trust
and conservational respect
among compassionate bicameral players
and workers,
parents and mentors and musing teachers,
more musical ensemble preachers,
interdependently non-sectarian,
cooperatively unspecialized.

When green ultra-nonviolent Muses fail
to ecosystemically see and hear
beyond narrow walls of short-term Win/Lose capital investment,
resonant cooperation among us Muses
becomes yet another revolutionary anthem
remembering long-term economic
and political,
and Earth-logical DNA
of and for Muse resilient voices
fading and swelling,
breathing out compassion,
breathing in cooperative co-relations,

Like cytosine with uracil,
yin with yang,
out-flowation with information
matriarchal with patriarchal
RightBrain induction with LeftBrain deduction
southern river valleys with northern mountain glaciers
resonant with resilient
singing with dancing
ultraviolet with green
bilateral TaoTime with 4D FractalSpace
sacred with secular
theological with ecological
balancing Truth with Beauty Muses.

Musicians never die,
we just keep Win/Win improvising
with resonant themes of fading elder voices.


Music Therapy

My LeftBrain is busy reading a book
on what Systems Theory
and thinking
and experience find encouraging
for WinWin social change,
where no losers are allowed to fail
at thriving away from WinLose capital stuckness
in everyday mundane egocentrism,

at the same time
my RightBrain is trying to imagine how to share
scat jazz vocal experiments
so other sanctuary choir members
can have the same celebratory
and non-violent communication through music appreciation
that is in my practice
and procedure skill-set,
more intuitive,
and less LeftBrain deductive.

I get to the bottom of my first paragraph today
and realize something has gone quite wrong
or right
and probably not not seductively wrong
so perhaps intuitively and inclusively correct,
true to nurtured experience,

I reread
and realize I’m not only writing in bracketed commentary
but also substituting a music paradigm
for a therapeutic systems change paradigm.

“The [vocal jazz] group
also identified several [harmonic] strategies
as shown in [chord and rhythmic flow notations]
on the importance of [diverse] community engagement.”

“[Jazz note and timing choices] capture the value
of asset mapping to identifying
and bridging [musical] opportunity gaps.”

“[Scat jazz] affirms the [political democratic empowerment] importance
of [not just LeftBrain] planning
for the built [notation] environment.”

“[Cleft, rhythm and key] Factors in the upper left corner
of the [two-voice] diagram
that impact the target [listener’s auditory] constraints
are [trebleYang and bassYin] shown.”

“Finally, in its [scaled octave] line[s]
at the bottom [through top] of the [musical] diagram,
the [jazz ensemble] acknowledge
the importance of [vocally] shifting [Left and Right, treble and bass]
mental models
throughout the [improvisation] process.”

Seems like a long-winded LeftBrain way of saying
Go with your flow of harmonic/dissonant options
to achieve our highest and best healthy enriching choices
as both performers
and interactive listeners,

But, some people don’t get RightBrain lost in the details
like I do,
so maybe some musicians,
wanting to make more resonant systemic change choices,
would find it helpful
for group jazz karaoke night
improvising green sanctuary social change
through harmonic solidarity.


United by NonUniformity

What is uniformly monolithic,
like a circular law, or wall,
is non-sectarian.

What is united together
is trans-sectarian unity, like a lattice, or web,
maybe even pan-unitarian.

We can sometimes see differences
between a universal ego-centered LeftBrain deductive, dividing, view
and eco-passionate open systemic RightBrain inductive, integral, listening,
holistically interdependent meaning.

Bicameral listening deeply for universal nature/uniting spirit
secular/sacred voices of time
regenerating EarthLight
dipolar co-arising
discerning LeftYang with RightYin Selves

Muses blinking backward in DNA nutritional health memory
and forward
into polypathic universal wealth
uniting fully energetic
peace-filling diversity
of harmonically co-resonant Muses,
ego-inside with eco-outside primal relationship.


Atheistic Need Not Equal AntiTheistic

Ecological interdependent systems,
networks non-personified co-relational
therefore holistic

EcoTheistic networks
for active cooperation,
if you radically
and democratically
prefer creolization
over OldSchool colonization,
Business As Competitively Usual,

Missions with more effective
and historically
and culturally valid cooperative outcomes
than patriarchal missionaries
of verbal dogma over-powering trans-sectarian opportunities,
healthy integrity experience,
wealthy synergetic hope

Emerged from warm wet wombed
Zero ZenZones of nutritional co-passion

Speaking systemically
of health theo-logical pasts
through transportive futures.


Six of One PolyNomial

An adolescent of the 60s,
now nearly sixty years later,
I still at least half trust
thirty and under agree

If you and I
are not part of our cooperative solution,
then we are part of Earth’s competing subclimate problem,
economic ecological policy,
political bicameral procedure…

In fact,
or so I subjectively feel
is objectively pointed fact,
I could agree
this is precisely
an important half-balancing truth,

if we are part of Earth’s cooperative health intent,
motivation, both spiritual and natural,
raison d’etre,
holonic gestalt,
then we are also not not competing co-operators,
as LeftBrain logically calculating
as RightBrain silently listening
for non-violent potential;

Which is why I feel as fact
when +1 is not(not) 0-squared,
then, at last, and least imbalanced,
we are getting some co-operative bilateral ego/eco-binary where,

Both ego-here and eco-there
no longer quite so either/or
Left v RightBrain, and Wing, and Wall
competitively dividing future opportunities
for health care giving
and receiving ZeroZone cooperatively owned
and managed

Like a universal patriarchal capitalist Right
bowing namaste with
uni-dipolarian matriarchal sacred communion Left
grace- and peace-full,
which feels awesomely like a square rational
polynomial fact to measure
in a potentially flowing kind
of fleeting non-violent

Dear Sue

Dear Sue,

I am remembering our strong negative responses
to the young woman who surreptitiously read
her aunt’s very private diary,
filled with vulnerable statements
of the most intimate nature
and transparently lusty spirit,

Yet, though secretive,
then took a bold black marker
and wrote vulgar, poisonous words
on most every previously locked and hidden page,

And yet, even here
she used her own judgmental inside voices
but wrote in her younger innocent brother’s hand.

We both found her choices highly distressing;
difficult to even read, imagine
squeamish to hear from a young niece perpetrator
or an old aunt victim.

I wonder if this is because we can empathize with both
the obstreperous and egocentric young, disturbed
with adult hidden and disruptively vulnerable agendas,
sometimes hedonistic
sometimes narcissistic,
usually both, back and forth
like yang then yin,
patriarchal power lust, then matriarchal depression
in response to chronic economic and political repression.

Do these actions,
intimate hidden self-disclosures
followed by a too yangishly adolescent monoculture’s mocking inspiration,
venomous uncaring,
toxically rapacious expressions,
aggressive actions and word choices,
with fully uncensored malicious intent,
speak to deep listening
yet camouflaged through deflection,
political sleight of hand,
giving off responsibility to some,
most any, Other
our own wounded skeletons of silent memory?

Powers brought to a very exclusive co-arising table of one,
acting as a duplicitous two,
bipolar in passive-aggressive
depressive-manic responses
to surprising disclosures
of older, respected, staid hidden agendas
written by those we have truly loved
and hoped to continue loving
without remainder, reserve,
without this unexpected erupting hidden agenda
to protect ourselves from what feels creepy
too manic or paranoid,
smelling of hidden conspiracies
to express attraction
in ways deviant from our own proper expectations
for our own,
and Other’s, therapeutic integral behavior.

I thought of that wicked niece,
and our responses to her perfidy,
after a dream last night
in which Donald Trump
was writing curse words
with a bold black marker
in his dominant RightWing hand
all over his concrete wall

And then all over the original Jeffersonian Declaration
of Interdependence
away from white narcissistic,
unenlightened royal privilege

And then Sorcerer’s Apprentice Trump
blackly wrote dirty jingoisms on,
stabbing at,
our original Adams and Jeffersonian
compromised democratic constitution

Written with compassionate radical trust intention
trying to declare all creatures,
slave and free,
enlightened plants and planet,
equal in everyday enchanting dignity,
assuming great prosperity benefits of polycultural cooperative economies
internationally fertile,
effective for well-being
of all the people,

Still to this Trumpian day falling politically short,
still awaiting fulfillment
by those who can read and write more skillfully,
less passive-aggressively,
less conspiratorially
less toxically enraged by WinLose multicultural losses
across the pages of our transparently democratic
yet divine

it seems we recognize this aversion to hidden narcissism
through empathy, cooperatively empassioned
in each other as a polypathic strength
strongly shared.

Thank you for speaking in solidarity
for a healthier, effluent ecofeminist affluent flow power
as we read across the pages of our own hopeful history books,

Still holding old school faith
found in each other’s passioned eyes and ears
and relentless spiritual-natural senses
of positive and negative and double-negative humors,
tumors benign and cancerous
rumors of magical queendoms
at our open liberal loving left hand,

Where agendas may be hidden
but not from shame or blame weapons
so much as reserved for our own tool-shaping pleasure
to disclose when and as we choose
and as our gifts for compassionate co-empathy
are most multiculturally needed,
stretched toward optimally resonant
resilience for all people,
young nieces and old aunts certainly included,
and MotherTrees
and humbler passioned plants
and MotherLanded planet.
