True and False Beliefs

Capitalists
believe in universal exemption
from Earth’s cooperatively resilient wealth
of resonantly-held holistic health.

Christians,
at our best,
believe in universal redemption
with EarthMother and LoveFathers’
cooperatively gracious compassion.

Buddhists,
at our most transcendent heights
and intimate depths,
believe in experiencing universal causation,
resonant correlations
of atoms and waves,
of staid matter and flamboyant energy
of space revolving place
and spiraling evolutions
causing effective sacred time:

Invested with transcendent
through intimate Earth,
natural vision
through spiritual listening,
polypathic thoughts
causing
and caused by
polyphonic feelings.

It’s A Tie

I agree with sacred teachers
who advocate I best not feel resonantly privileged
while meditating
to take part in something special
like sacred mysteries
of sabbath revolutions.
And yet,
I only half agree.
This secularizing paradigm
would promote democratic accessibility
and convenient evolution of educational systems,
transport and marketing of organic integrity
and win/win compassionate systems
to left-brain dominant calculators
extractors
deducers
labelers
reducers
either/or thinkers
without co-developed sacred feelings.
My other half
remains prime zero-rooted
in EarthMother’s primal health/wealth relationship
through non-violent communion,
Peaceful reign of eco-feminist EarthJustice
sacredly felt
and secular thought through
deep EarthTribe nutritional
well-lit

Fundamental Correctness

Healthy robust meditation,
taught
in diverse schools of thought,
theological
through ecological,
biological,
psychological
sociological
and neurological,
begins with correct posture.

But, “correct” does not mean
only one orthodox way.

Correct
is more about medians
than evangelical means,
favoring balance,
centering practice.

Correct
accommodates diversity,
cultural differences
and universal similarities
of humane bicameral consciousness.

Correct posture,
like correct theology
and correct understanding
of ecological relationship,
is about polyphonic correlation
and not monoculturing stagnation.

Yet, correct posture,
correct health care,
correct political and economic relationships,
are not merely subjective,
not merely “relative”

Any more or less than correct theories of relativity
are merely subjective,
chaotic,
degenerative,
entropic.

Rather, correct postures,
frames,
forms of discernment,
notice,
healthy curiosity,
good humor,
structure,
transparent networks,
resilient systems,
are correct
as they are in left/right
west/east
north/south
ego/eco balancing relationship,
noticing tipping points

Toward Yang’s natural revolutions
in mountainous significant space
and Yin’s spiritual evolutions
co-arising spiraling valleys of time

Where polypathic relationship
correctly resonates
polyphonic resilience.

Stretching Health Care

My oldest friend,
and older, too,
has a daily yoga practice
of self-care,
which I would healthier emulate.

But, when I mentioned this
as rich in comparison
with my own brief leg stretches
while tube-feeding my son,
and occasional too brief dancing
and jumping
with my cerebral palsied daughter,

He responds
to my neglect of self care
with self-deprecating acclaim
for my daily investment
in young adult bodies
inhabiting wounded child concerns.

I recognize this response
in literature of sacred messiahs
and family health care martyrs
and extended family matriarchs
and secular ecofeminist mentors
of selflessness,
ego annihilation,
empty nesters,
nonself-investors.

While all such roleplays,
diurnal through eternal,
are counter-cultural,
with redemptive value
and stretching of compassion,

I question their/our capacity for resilience
as even the most cooperative
win/win co-invested economist
would question total eco-investment
through absolute ego-divestment,
outgoing care for health
while bleeding out all internal wealth
of energy
power
light.

Yoga stretches internal minds
to resonantly balance
external bodies
fully re-creating
co-acclimating
resonant resilience.

This stretching,
toning
touching
feeling
balancing
centering
communicating
cooperative empowering
compassionate enlightening
I could do with my son
and my daughter
daily,
and perhaps timelessly,
with sufficient commitment
and imagination,
creativity
and regenerative health
intent to optimize
our shared systemic wealth

Stretching from where we are
toward when we will become
together in shared passion.

Half Conscious

She was half listening
to a Tibetan male philosopher.

He spoke in timeless wise prose
impressed
by suppressed
Western natural theories of mind.

She heard repressed
Western timely spiritual experiences
of sensual sensory bodies.

He sang lyrically
of cultural vocations
perpetually turned toward enlightenment.

She spoke rationally
of permacultural designs
systemically perpetuating
healthy democratic empowerment.

He thought about natural
multicultural mindfulness
as time’s seamless spatial integrity.

She felt sublime
within polycultural
spiritual embodiment
of Earth’s revolving
co-passionate
nutritional
nurturing synergy.

He was half speaking
to a Western ecofeminist theologian.

Integrity’s Keys

“The key to finding a happy balance
in modern lives
is simplicity.”
Sogyal Rinpoche, Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

A health wealthy key
to finding empowering balance
is synergetic simplicity.

Cooperation is simple
where competition is more complex.

Synergy restores peace;
dissociative energy punishes past injustices.

Complex synergetic patterns are beautiful;
chaotic entropic enervation is darkly dissonant.

Synergetic simplicity invites integrity;
capitalistic competitions consume
and produce self v other unraveling.

Integrity empowers further courageous curiosity;
dissonance disturbs past aggressive discouragement.

A wealthy health power
exploring integrity
embraces compassionate simplicity.

Revolutionary Earth Balance

“I too dance the rhythm of this moving world.”
Rumi

Ego too dances DNA revolving
spiraling rhythms
patterns
holistic silence
particular tones,

Confluent and dissonant,
comparative and contrasting,
cooperative and competitive,
economic and political
social and psychological

Empowering peaceful balance
within this moving
living
ecologically connected Earth
touched by Day and Night

Ego-centering co-invested light
dancing local
balancing
revolving global
Eco-systemic compassion might.

I too balance
tip-pointed rhythms
within and upon
this moving
revolutionary Earth Day.

Binding Conversations

I try to live
and feel
and think
and strategize win/win
in that in-between left and right
systemic ecology and global, multicultural theology,
natural relationships and spiritual polypaths,
resilience and resonance,
yuang and yin
explicating and implicated,
extrinsic and intrinsic,
inhale and exhale,
impression
and depression repression suppression recession oppression,
positive and not negative
1 and 0 double-binary

Universal One:
Our Yang goal,
to merge with multicultural empowerment
beginning with polypathic conservations
of intersectional webs
for regenerative life EarthSystem,
And polyphonic
positive harmonic
liberal lovers

Unitarian Zero:
Yin mentoring
reconnecting
religioning
energy democracy
within cooperative becoming
belonging health
supplanting left-brain dominant egocentered
longing for autonomous
divisive wealth
control
empire-building disempowerment
of all Alien win/lose predators

Universal One:
Rather than colonizing history’s
diversity into a single monocultural Yang dogma,
Taoism, like Zeroism,
is a nondualist philosophical tradition
to which no patriarch
has ever been historically validated
with overpowering win/lose colonizing effectiveness
and capitalistic wealth

Unitarian Zero:
Belonging to Earth’s creolizing
multiculturing ecological process
of regenerative health empowerment,
in a 2020 nonsermon
not entitled “Why Unitarian Universalism is Living”
non-revered EcoFeminists sing
and fire-circle dance
to experience reconnected ecological religion
that has always HolyWind and Spirit
indigenously existed everywhere,
and to which everyone
of polypathic left and polyphonic right
ego/eco-balancing health/wealth note
throughout herstory
has always belonged

Safely
securely
meaningfully
purposefully
sacredly and secularly
spiritually and naturally
theologically and ecologically
yin with yang
right with left
Both/And with Either/Or
intuitively felt and deductively thought
imagined and remembered
reconnected
religioned

win/win compassioned
primally empty empathic ego
and secondarily
bicamerally
fully ecosystemic,
timelessly eternal
becoming and belonging
refining and defining
inhaling and exhaling
precessing and recessing
re-investing and divesting…

Harmonic Home

My next right climate,
environment,
home,
will amply express interdependent health values,
need for belonging,
wanting to grow in resonant meaning,
cooperative resilient becoming
GoldenRule cooperative
Win/Win non-zero sum energy faith-filled;
My next right/left multiculture

Will be felt
to become known;
Will be ego-known
to become eco-home.

Some inside/outside interdependent climates
are a better known fit for Now

And Now is this timeless moment
between historic memories,
warm and cold,
fertile and barren,
And future multiculturing images
of creolizing warm more than colonizing cold,
of fertile more than barren,
of love more than hate,
of life more than dying,
of compassion more than violence,
of Yes more than not known Now.

Fragile Supremacy

Does it always feel good to be King?
Or Queen?
Diva?
PolyPathic Genius?
PolyPhonic Perfect Pitched Prophet?

White fragility,
like loneliness,
is the psychic
and economic
and disempowering risk we take

Each time and place
we consciously impress
subconsciously oppress
unconsciously suppress
anti-consciously repress
uneven
over-invested white male privileged opportunities

To recognize cultures as polycultural systems
and climates as polypathic networks,
sometimes health and wealth balanced polynomials
and sometimes more monochromatically problematic,

Played out
in win/lose economic capital advantages
and egocentric/anthrocentric
competing political game environments
habitats
eco-centers
assumed to be ZeroSum
by left-brain dominant win/lose energy conservationists
and also NonZero-Sum
co-arising dipolar 4-season revolutionary
by right-sacredmind win/win emergent progressivists,
change agents vulnerably fragile
and transparently eco-feminist privileged.

Games of physical aggression
too often produce violently wounding
fragmenting
punishing
retributive justice strategies
and spiritual
metaphysical detachment
dissociation
from disempowering privileged intent

Games of metaphysical aggression
grow out from leftbrain dominant language,
patriarchal-ism word and value choices
labeling win/lose natural realism v
win/win liberal in love too optimistic v
lose/lose conservative of static entropic death
too pessimistic
too fragile
too privileged to feel

Ecologic-rooted theologies on sacred Right
and theological ego/eco-logos
for win/win feminist Left

Physical fragile metaphysicians
inhaling
and metaphysically privileged win/win healers
exhaling.

Does it always feel good to be King?
And Queen?
And Diva?
And PolyPathic Genius?
And PolyPhonic Perfect Pitched Prophet?

Who would know
with ultra-nonviolet gratitude
this empowering East side
of Gaia’s BlueGreen Earth?
