CoEmpathic Experience

Could what we believe
is our neurological humane nature,
growing up
and cooperatively out
from LoseMe/LoseWe depressions
about ourselves
and our subculturally dynamic environments,
toward WinMe/LoseWe capitalistic patriarchalism,
toward WinMe/WinWe nurturing co-empathic communication,

Also feel
as if theologically new ancient redblooded spiritual
flowing up
and cooperatively out
ecological green/blue energy
growing from retributive injustice guilt and shame
toward WinEgo/WinEco absorbing compassion,
ego/eco-political EarthTribe healing
healthy nature of wealthy spirituality?

Could what we believe
is our positive/negative multi-regenerational
psychological internal nature

Have grown from
our ecological prime EarthMother Attachment,
flowing divine ZeroSum individuating energy
growing from discontinuous detached WinMe/LoseWe
post-partum dark experience
toward Win/Win eco-political healing
green new deal healthy
internal/external nature

Of wealthy holistic healing
health/wealth multicultural
multigenerational
multi-pathic
polyphonic
meta-euphoric experience?

Privileged Cultures AfterThought

It feels fascinating
that horny voracious passions
dissipate in the presence of ego-centered fear
of pain and suffering
and ego-defeating loss,
disability and predative performance anxieties,
wounds,
death,
short-term through permanent
degenerating energy,
absence of active hope
for future holistic integrity.

In this time of climate degeneration
fear and cultural distancing need,
frustrated leftbrain dominant
StraightWhiteMale monoculturing horniness
looks culturally privileged like,
sounds prejudicially like,
feels and touches sacred EarthMother like,
smells and multiculturally
creole tastes like
manically monoculturing
predative redmeat energy states
of fear-and-anger inducing rabidity
rather than restorative green regenerative passion
for multicolored
trans-generational
testosterone/estrogen
yang/yin
pansexual win/win
inclusive cosmic integrity

Of cooperative green/blue energy
power

I’m Fine

His life felt sick.
Filled with ick

And she was sighing,
inside dying.

Yet, when asked,
her response
entirely unresponsive,
“I’m fine.”
puts her compassionate listener
in a double-bind.

Do I ask her if she is intentionally lying
or irresponsibly
out of her self-isolating mind?

Neither one
feels more kind
and patient,
still, uncommunicating
and yet curious.

Could it be
she is embarrassed
about being merely mortal?

A caregiver
without sufficient tools
or even weapons
to assure EarthTribe’s
resonantly healthy non-confrontations
with degenerative trends
sometimes overwhelming
normal regenerative
narrative twists and bends,

A mother
who must only be
an omnipotent caregiver,
without sustained support
as one of us
co-arising care receivers?

What good is universal health care giving
without reciprocal
compassionate care receiving?

And, how could we,
why would we,
when should all Earth’s caregivers
deny our patriarchal climates
of pathology?

When our allies are sick
and filled with unanticipated ick.

Grasping Distractions

Maybe it’s just me.
So, I’m asking,
as focused, yet open
as I could ever hope to be,

Do negative correlations
between inhaling
and exhaling
Earth’s sensory WorldView
resemble, for you,
too,
a reverse correlation,
dipolar co-arising
appositional contrast,
in-between grasping on
and distracting off?

I am not sure why
this question could be economically
or politically
or psychologically
or neurobiologically significant

In this time of great polarized
climate EarthHealth and Safety crisis,
and yet,
it persistently seems so
as I attempt,
in my EarthView solitude,
to exhale and detract from
left hemisphere verbal
monopolizing
demanding dominance

To inhale and grasp toward
more right hemisphere nonverbal
nonviolent communing
climate therapeutic
in-between re-association
re-syncing thought and feeling
re-communing secular and sacred
re-ligioning

Green
and blue
and red
ultra-violet reweaving
Earth’s climate health
grasping fresh inhalations
and distracting patriarchal stale capitalism’s
white male privileged
pompous hortatorical reiterations
of Fight Makes Godless Right

Grasping or distracting reactionary
nonresponsiveness
to our secular
and sacred longings
for EarthHealth
and DemocraticSafety
non-oppositional points of WorldView.

Peak Empathic Experiences

Send me no more peak polypathic experiences.

They are too dear
for my everyday time budget
of liberal
liberated
liberating
resonantly exhausting compassion.

I am too addicted
to conserving resilient peaks,
avoiding dissonant valleys
of mundane anonymity
sometimes winning
sometimes losing
in-between equanimity
integrity of co-empathic
co-arising intent
for more co-operatively rooted
heights of sacred generosity
reciprocally felt gratitude,
positive, democratically sustainable attitude.

Every scientific cause-effect karmic statement
of peak interactive experience
does not have to be structurally
routinely tested
before it is accepted,

But,
to become an accepted hypothesis
of peak cultural interest
it must be capable
of being deductively tested
for sequential,
and co-arising peak,
or appositional unpeak, relationship
consistent
at least within prescribed parameters.

Every faith statement
need not have been personally experienced
before it is accepted
as orthodox belief,

But, good faith must be capable
of leading toward co-arising
climaxes of copassionate experience.

History of great scientific and religious revolutions
provides examples of paradigms
and medicines
and cognitive-affective
natural-spiritual
ecological-theological therapies
found explicitly useful
long before becoming autonomous subjects
of reductive cause-effect
karmic
experiential
experimentally reified verification.

History of great faith revolutions
provides win/win
external-nature/internal-nurture
cooperative examples of medicines
and paradigms
and meditations
and thought experiments
and bicameral polyphonic confluence
found prophetically useful
long before becoming subjects
for inductive co-arising compassion.

Scientific and religious historians
would not reasonably conclude
that testing hypotheses,
of win/win positive correlations,
win/lose negative bipolar reverse correlations,
and lose/lose not/not correlated unpolynomial variables,
independent and dependent
interdependent
codependent bilateral testing is unnecessary
or ill-advised
or acts of leftbrain deductive peaking hubris.

Rather,
ecological and theological theories,
physical and metaphysical,
may be politically
and economically
and spiritually
and naturally
and culturally
and socially
and psychologically
and neurologically significant
even before leftbrain dominant tested
for peak winleft/winright experiential outcomes.

The generation of deductive theory,
like regeneration of inductive good faith statements,
grows out of abstract leftbrain thoughts
conversing with rightbrain feelings,
metaphysical thought experiments
faithfully distinct from win/win climax confirming
or win/lose physically disconfirming
or lose/lose misconfirming unexperience.

Bicameral co-arising positive faith formulation
of scientific and religious
karmic theories of causation,

linear
and/or spiraling spacetime,
leftbrain dominantly reductive
and/or rightbrain prominently inductive,
subtractive
and/or summative,
spatially differentiated
and/or spacetime holistic,

Cooperatively predict healthy resilient relationships
between understanding
and standing under holistic systemic openness
to healing win/win peak experiences,
hope,
faith,
love,
polyempathic compassion.

Capacity to envision
new co-arising ways
of perceiving peak causal phenomena
and to propose powerful prophetic explanations
for good faith
positive health perceptions
is a leftbrain characteristic
of linear-deductive metaphysical formulation,
3Dimensioned orthodox spatial maps
structures,
tropic frames of trophic reference.

RightBrain co-relational observation
and LeftBrain experimentation
do not,
in competitive isolation,
provide bicameral revolutionary peak experience
polyphonic reconceptions
without which
faithful everyday inquiry
is randomly aimless
and dispassionately blind
to peak poly-empathic experiences,

Too unresiliently dear
for ego’s everyday time budget
of good faith liberal
liberated
liberating liberation,
resonantly inhaling exhausted compassions
of history’s polycultural peak experiences.

Doors to Power Perception

Sogyal Rinpoche
tells a Doors to Perception story.

Positive and negative feeling individuals
bear witness to a river.

Those more goddess-like
see this river as great
savory
fragrant
nutritious
beautifully resonant
musically harmonic
multiculturally rich,
a transporter of karmic mediation
preferring win/win cooperative
ecofeminist
green energy conservational
and black lives matter liberally transubstantiating
Earth’s indigenous Right
and endogenous Left,
androgynous Left
deducing Right’s inductive
sacred seductive
empowerment values.

And
We are those more patriarchal straight white privileged.
Whether monoculturing husbands
or suppressed green ecofeminist
EarthMothers with dam-bursting restorative justice rights
to vote for miserably polarized
and contentious speakers,
rather than more cooperatively discerning
non-violently active listeners,
health care resonant researchers
and climate care legislators
and benignly win/win trans-reformative administrators

Religiously remaining focused
and spiritually framed
on how hellishly ravaged
our monotheistic
and competitive monopolistic
theocratic win/lose assumptions
about river grace racing economies
have become polluted
toxic waste streams
ending in chemically satiated swamps
rather than healthy river mouths

Positive power suppressed negative karma
about the eyes of Goddess Earth Visions
and the ears of Evangelical HellRaisers
Patriarchal Terrorists
Narcissistic MonoTheocrats

Evaporating into
lose/lose monoculturing warp-drive,

aka “Climate CHANGE”
equals Earth’s ZeroZone summative core

Full=1.00%
Empty=00%
PatriarchalYang power
perceptual prejudice

And yet,
this Doors of Perception story
ends with the assumption
of Incommensurable EcoSystemic Information,
further logically concluding
from this enthymematic
unstated win/lose assumption
about the empowering value of co-empathic feelings,
of sacred green eco-feminist compassion,
of standing downstream of history’s polyculturing
multiculturing
resonantly resilient healthy wealth multicultural flow system,
the ZeroZone Capital ReSource
of the River’s flowing downhill acquisitive structure,

Both bipolarized banks agree,
flowing downstream health power
is our humane economic resource
and Earth’s political ZeroZone Source

Of whatever that redemptive baptismal
and sacred cleansing
nutritious
nurturing water
cooperatively-owned
and altruistically managed

And/or polluted,
toxic waste stream

MotherEarth owned
and transported
by deep learning river beds
of communication health power dreams
of ecosystemic communication delivery

Become power systems of neurologically win/win
v win/lose
v lose/lose
polyphonically bicameral
felt integral and holy,
healthy and safe,
wealthy and beautiful

Rightbrain wild
and leftbrain infamous,

Goddess EarthTribal
and Patriarchally Hellish,

Yin trans-regenerating
Yang’s anthrocentric ZeroZone
secular/sacred Source
for material and temporal ReSources

To notice each river’s full rainbow
of whatever you call that flowing
as compassionately downstream
as time flows
water-powered energy
from up to down

As Earth-born nutritional delivery systems
root down to up sunlight,
as air-born nutrients
burn daily East to West,
when facing the river bed’s Northern Source,
also Right to Left
North in winter’s frozen discontent,
South in summer’s midstream swelling climax.

Lone Warrior Rides Again

I wonder how much,
if any, distance
we might uncover
between The Lone Warrior
surrounded by weary white YesMen,
and The Naked Emperor
surrounded by timid white YesMen.

Both Warriors and Emperors
long for those they serve
by ruling over,
by disempowering healthy democratic voices
of critical dissent,
to wake up to their personal
omnipotent
privileged vision
and sacred words,
their supremely authoritative
and defensively authoritarian
win/lose knowledge

That competition to serve as YesMen
YesWomen
YesChildren
is the only appropriate role
for weak serfs;
those with too humble
poverty of spirit
and degenerative win/win nature,=
integrity
responsibility
compassion

Rather than daring
to look into our own Lone Emperor
richly naked eyes
of narcissistic disappointment.

Like all of us,
all Naked Warriors ever healthy long for
is to be appreciated
and played with
by peers
of resonant
compassionate integrity
caring
health wealthing.

The nakedly lonely
Warrior Emperor
of win/lose capitalistic politics
is not what EarthTribe had in mind
as reborn worshipers
cast our famous ballots
for EarthMother’s sacred
non-yeswoman birth

Back
back to enlightenment
of GrandMother Moon.

Permaculture Designs

Multicultural Appreciative Design
begins with how we nutritionally feel,
nurtured or afflicted,
resonant and/or dissonant about a few issues,
spiritually healthy
and naturally wealthy,
growing out
into more robust global matters.

Polycultural outcome win/win strategies
follow principles of cooperative economy
and regenerative choice-making
to improve health care giving
and receiving
for each humane resident’s sacred habitat.

ZeroZone is first priority,
and then out to spacetime climate periphery.

Once we notice and plan past
Zone One,
Zone Two,
Zone Three,
and perhaps more,
depending on the scale of our restorative justice
healing ambitions,
we eventually conclude by observing
wind and light/shadow patterns,
climate trends
humid and dry atmospheres,
social good humored cultures
and nationalism’s bad humored
political
blaming and shaming
win/lose capital commodified monoculture.

ZeroZone interviews
ask Who Are You
at your healthiest
most nutritionally communicating
win/win eco-political best,
especially in cooperative relationship
with Zone One,
often defined as those spaces and times visited
and felt revisited
at least once per day
and night.

Zone Two,
less frequently,
maybe once a week.
The grocery store,
farmer’s market,
bank,
cooperative credit union,
compost bin,
edible and aesthetically pleasing boundaries,
inviting barricades
between Zone Two
and

Zone Three,
about once a month,
such as ambiguously friendly neighbors.

Zone Four,
once or twice a year,
maybe tracing tentacles out
to the dentist’s office,
the voting booth,
church,
the state park,
the state capital.

Zone Five,
Climate health
v pathology,
Polycultural wealth
v monoculturing degenerativity,

Each of these layered Zones
extending out from each ZeroZone individual,
couple,
family,
cooperative humane residents,
responsible and responsive green new deal team,
restorative justice residential authorities,
each Black Lives Matter intentional community,
each Green Lives Matter advocacy anthro-pod,
sharing a residential labor of love home,

Surrounds
a ZeroZone cooperative,
each Permaculture Designer
is trained to notice,
interview,
multiculturally mediate
bilaterally resilient left hemisphere
and resonant right hemisphere
nonviolent communication win/win relationships
of deductive thought
and inductive feeling,
breathing in
from Zones One through XY-polynomial layers
while also breathing out ZoneZero
feelings about healthy v pathological,
co-relational,
co-passionate climate dialogue
for win/win discernment
of global integrity’s timeless potential
for democratic health, more–

So, by the indirect way,
pathological outcomes
win/lose left hemisphere dominant either/or thinking,
less.

Father’s Day Reflections

It is 2 pm
on a hot and humid Sunday
in June.

I am cleaning walls
and floors,
cabinets
and doors,
and laying newly steamed rugs
in a new place
of one floor living
more suitably down-sized
from three floor struggling
for my disabled son
and aging me.

My husband
for the past twenty four years
calls with Happy Father’s Day!

This, like an anniversary ritual,
surprising reminder between us two Dads
not sure how we are doing
together.
But, better than apart.

Surprised,
I admitted
my failure to remember
perhaps because,
for me,
for us?
everyday is fathers’ day
and night
of secularized care taking

As every mothers’ day
and night
may become sacred care giving

As schools of male
and female,
more precisely male or female,
fish fail to remember
wet climates breathe water
in and out again,
care filling
and care emptying,
care giving
and care taking
within mundane
everyday habitual atmosphere
on this living
enculturing Earth

Which lives healthier
as we become more everyday
compassionate care givers
and takers
listening in
and speaking out
for our present
past
and future Earth
and EarthTribes,

Interdependent species
Organic holonic bodies
Extending multicultural families
Humane repopulations
at appropriately grateful scale
for peaceful
nutritional
energetic, yet care-full,
EarthJustice
Sometimes my unlanguaged son
sounds like a constipated chicken
trying to lay a great egg.
Yet he also roars
like an anticipating rooster
toward the light,
raising and praising east
and up and out
and west,
eager for this new caretaking
every Earth day.

Organic Therapy

Sogyal Rinpoche,
and all the Rinpoche family before him,
prescribes therapeutic merit
of contemplating my Master’s face.

For ecotherapists
the Master of Regenerative Intent
is also Mother Earth’s face,
climate,
multicultural health
in ecological/theological harmony.

EcoTherapists,
like ancient saints and sacred scriptures,
teachers and teachings,
oral tradition Tellers
and Experiential ReTellers,
do not distinguish
between secular ecological relationships
and sacred theological co-passions

Because we cannot see
or hear,
feel
or touch,
taste
or smell any difference
that makes a difference
between exterior left-hemisphere dominant
YangNature
and interior right-hemisphere ecofeminist
YinSpirit

In appositional dialogue
and not unhealthy oppositional debate.

Anyway,
whether because of dualistic blindness
or nondualistic wisdom,
or both physical experience
and metaphysical theory,
or all above and below
tipping points of universal mediation,

Gazing on the Face of Earth
is, for this ecotherapist,
a growing awareness
of changing enlightenment,
beginning with dawn source East
and ending with dusk’s last gasp
surrounding light’s enculturing dominance
fading from East toward West.

In this light’s day
my brown-skinned daughter
with lively brown crossed eyes,
born addicted to alcohol,
leaves the light and darkness of my home
to enter a residential facility

Paid for by the State of Connecticut
and staffed by a non-profit Lutheran agency,
with professional behaviorists
and egotherapists,
left and right hemisphere teachers
of deep learning
spiritual emotions with natural thoughts,
natural thoughts expressing spiritual
sensory sensed
healthy healthed feelings,
co-arising Earth’s facial ease
v disease,
light v dark,
empowerment v entropy.

But, even today,
as we finish packing
and travel for an hour
and go through this postVirus placement,
the profound and most significant drama
of light unfolds
across the Face of our exterior Mother

Where sun and shadow
again sweep
and climax
and wane

Where seasonal climate
and daily temperature and humidity,
rooted in yesterday’s pre-millennial climate
and global subclimates,
branch out
toward tomorrow’s regenerative
and degenerative
health wealth and pathology stealth trends,
co-arising this day’s unique permacultural opera

Witnessing
and celebrating operations
of daily changing
uniquely evolving
resiliently revolving Face
my daughter’s new and old homes
of light and shadow
resolutely best embrace.
