Surviving Chronic Eclipses

I was on my ambivalent fence
about who to watch watch the solar eclipse,
my alcoholic allies
or the designer THC corporate investors.

Wherever it was,
we read excerpts from two permaculture designers,
to get our minds ready for this great transitional event.

Robin Wall Kimmerer,
a matriarchal Elder Native American
permaculture designer and teacher
of ecofeminist political matriarchal cooperative ownership,
if there ever were such an actual RealTime person,
tells a story of two ways to harvest sweetgrass.

One eco-centered way plays WinWin
in cooperation with each grass clump’s root system,
cutting and pinching harvests
from the base of each individual sacred stalk,
while more WhiteMan-centered investors,
buyers and sellers,
play WinSome-LoseSome capital-extraction
in competition with uprooted and thrown away,
culled and harvested and wasted root systems,
ego-convex/eco-concave bilateral D/RNA-encrypted.

Here, root systems are devoured in pursuit of entitled rights
of ownership over individual nutritional-potentiated sacred systems,
including economic rights of commercial capital rapacious growth
through normative mutual Win/Lose legal political standards,

Using strictly LeftBrain dominant secular ecopolitical values,
for natural-spiritual dipolar dignity,
beauty,
(0) Soul bilateral truth,
(0) Sum cooperative RightBrain trust/competitive Either/Or mistrust Left,
(0) Core root-systemic synergy co-invested,
co-arising,

potentials.

Meanwhile,
David Holmgren,
possibly a LeftBrain dominant ecopolitical PermaCulture Designer
and Teacher,
and Family-Householder (0)-Zone EcoRooted Mentor,
reminds us
the Turtle Island Garden of Eden,
whether as consumer or harvester
or LeftBrain dominant co-investor
seeks a proactive Left with RightBrain correlational
WinWin primal relationship,
too often LeftBrain dismissed,
marginalized,
and misinterpreted to mean
your egocentric right to harvest
any alternative WinLose way
you passively and consumer-market oriented feel
is your natural-spiritual right
for Mother Earth
as SkyWoman
to breastfeed you.

Some of us parents
and teachers,
mental health professionals
and public health ecological cooperators,
preachers and politicians,
theorists and practitioners of health giving and receiving
as slow-growing non-pathological climates
and reweaving multicultures,
need LeftBrain reminders
we are always better off and on
to let ecosystems,
reforesting root systems,
take their ecological (0)Soul
bilaterally revolving
slow-grown course.

Others prefer invitations to RightBrain ecocentering harvests,
where root systems are all cooperatively sacred potential partners,
and only competitively merely secular opportunities
for WinLose divestment,
a natural-spiritual kick in the ass
by the fear of a vengeful Patriarchal God of EgoMongering,
and/or by our natural-spiritual love of co-investing
with cooperative Matriarchal Earth,
to wake us Left with RightBrain up
to act to save our bicameral sighted selves.

These two responses to WinWin empowering ecopolitics,
over Yanged LeftBrain Prickly (A. Watts)
and our under-Yinned RightBrain Gooey (also Watts)
come to Left with Right CoLateral CoPresence
in most of us
in different times and development seasons
of our youthful spring
through mature adult harvest times,
back toward (0)Soul bilateral origins of Design.

Permacultural development of forests and families
with Eden-WinWin ecopoliticians and parents,
planters and harvesters,
invest in small and great revolutionary transitions
as both interdependent ecopolitical consumers
and co-responsible and eco-authoritative
therapeutic producers of polycultural health outcomes.

This is our LeftBrain dominant Yang energy
revisioning RightBrain repressed sides
trying to more confluently,
less cognitive-affective dissonantly,
co-harvest
and co-design re-investments with Earth
evolving our deep learning root system
of our currently eclipsing

climate of competitive ecopolitical pathology,
absence of EarthCentric (0)Soul

Too energetic Yang

while hypnotized by an oncoming chronic solar eclipse,

perpetually embracing GrandMother Moon’s
