An important truth of compassion therapy
cooperatively sharing from a back-and-forth healthy heart,
to receive a wealthier, more resonant, mind,
improved by NonZero-Sum win/win inspirations
more strongly than Zero-Sum win/lose aspirations.
To improvise on a Giving To
Ruth Bebermeyer melody,
I always feel less given to
when you won’t take from me–
When you don’t understand the joy I feel
when heard by peaceful you.
And, you don’t know
my giving is not done
to put you in my awe,
but because I want to grow this love
I feel to win with you.
To receive life’s grace
may be Earth’s greatest health.
There’s no way we could separate
the two–Earth and life
When Earth gives to me,
I give you my receiving.
When you won’t hear from me,
I feel Earth not given to,
when you take from me,
I can feel Earth given True.
Note: “Given To” lyrics by Ruth Bebermeyer, found on the album, “Given To”, and published in J. Rosenburg’s “Nonviolent Communication” as practiced in “Compassion Therapy” as felt in “EarthHealth Resonance” through sacred economic co-empowerment.
