Custody of the Eyes

Monks and nuns,
ascetics and miscellaneous humble proletariat folks,
were taught custody of the eyes,
to show respect for those older
and/or wiser
and/or more supremely royal,
and/or in other positions of merited or inherited authority,
to avoid appearing too curious
too available
too interested,
to avoid temptations
of lust and envy and gossip,
to avoid that part of our reality show
that was only meant for the real adults
in our extended family rooms and screens,
creeping across hedge and boundary and custody-paradigm issues
of who is worthy to be in and who not-so-much.

African-American sons and daughters of enslavement,
were taught custody of the eyes
and ears,
and nose,
and hands,
and mouth,
and mind,
because what may be nutritious for WesternWhite Entitlement folks
is what is inappropriately dangerous for nonWhite dependent nonfolks.

Custody of the senses, including the eyes,
is a form of risk management
and precisely what healthy, curious polypathic trusting people
would never ever choose to do,
to enrich not only our own curious multiculturing eyes,
but also to do our part to facilitate
therapeutic opening of our EarthTribe extended families’
ecologically deep-nutritious, bicameral nurturing, eyes.

Custody of the eyes,
risk-management, anger-management, fear-terror management,
does not invite the curiosities of appositional loves,
invitations,
mutual gratitude for still emerging sacred-cooperative humanity,
natural/spiritual nondual dignity,
integration of our potential
for more regenerative,
self/other acclimating,
Earth-Secular/Sacred multicultural health integrity.

George Lakoff reminds us that
“Most people’s first [custodial] experience with governance
[of the eyes and all that eco-bio system that lies bicamerally behind]
is in their family.”
[Here I would pause to extend this family’s self-governing timeline,
back to embryonic beginnings,
Pre-Left-Dominant language development,
to suggest this is where our within-matriarchal family governance
experience first began,
then out, from there,
into identifying a LeftBrain dominant individuated EgoIdentity,
also bicamerally structuring confluent/dissonant polarities,
but also stepping back in time,
now,
suddenly realizing this bicameral-nurturing Ego’s
freedom of eye and mind and ears for those who can hear
Earth’s ecological vocation toward inclusive multicultural health,
echoes RightBrain Elder memory,
DNA encrypted,
RNA co-mentoring nature-spirit root systemic intelligence,
regenerative health
ecopolitical commonly-held conserve-progress senses
that could never work with full regenerative intent
while confined to custody of this EgoIdentity’s marginalized,
repressed,
suppressed eyes.

“Your parents govern you: they tell you what to do,
what’s good for you and bad for you,
and what’s good for the family;”
and, if you are of great glad good health fortune,
how to deep nurturingly learn to love self/other regeneratively,
and why we take care of our health best together,
cooperatively,
rather than LeftBrain ego-centric competitively,
leaning toward fearsome sociopathology,
expecting lesser paranoid beings to practice
custody of the eyes
and to respect YangHubris right to enforce condemning violence
against less enlightened minds and too-liberal bodies.

“In a family,
the means of making sure they [custodial self-governance norms] are carried out
are, positively,
by expressing affection [and curiosity of mind about differences,
diversity,
multiculturality,
plurality,
branches of the family further removed
back in time,
and perhaps currently enslaved and commodified
by competitive LeftBrain aggression
in some oppressively custodial way,
ready to revolt from long-practiced custody of anthrocentric eyes
blind to our healthier regenerative nondual relationships,
denying most of Earth’s enspirited sacred ecosystemic natures],
social pressure [toward cooperatively inclusive integrity, and not so much toward competitively monoculturing egocentricity],
fulfilling desires [especially those emerging from
and cooperatively progressing toward conservation
of eco-health responsibility; healthier climates]
or instilling pride [especially about mutually expansive gratitude
for freedom from custody of the eyes];
and, negatively,
by withdrawing affection,
social isolation [such as custody of the eyes],
denying desires,
instilling guilt or shame,
or physical [condemning powering-over aggression of mindbody ownership, proprietorship, Yang-hubris] force.”

“The [EcoPolitical Earth] Institution…is the Family”
extended to multiculturally include all of Earth’s Organic EcoSystemic Tribes

“The Governing Individual…is a [BiCameral] Parent”
including too-often suppressed nurturing,
integrative,
co-redemptive empowerment mentors

“Those Governed…are Family Members”
co-respected,
mutually respectful,
responsible,
polypathically authoritative,
practicing custody of the senses
to notice ecological therapeutic frames,
climate health potentials,
regenerative, rather than degeneratively-dominating, landscapes,
internal natures as externally shared-OverSoul
enlightening custody
progressing Traditional-Orthodox conservancy
of short- through long-term extended family health
and defensive/integrative ecopolitical DNA/RNA Solidarity safety.

Bodhisattva Tao-Balance Warriors,
CoMessianic AtWo/Man OverSouls,
EcoPolitical Polypathic Matriarch/Patriarchs of ReGenerative Health
no longer cowed and commodified and controlled
by custody of the YHWH-narrow-way wu-wei co-operating eyes,
free to look out and bicamerally recreate
our renewing Ego/Eco-Reality WinWin Game Show.

Freedom from custody
is also bicameral freedom to customize,
to acclimate to our shared sacred-secular primal ecology
of mutually cooperative health and safety,
empathic trust,
Basic Attendance of all nurturing sensory communicators,
living within ecopolitical communities.
