Soup Kitchen Luncheon

He said s/he was a Permaculture Designer
of cooperative economies.

I asked him/her why I should care about designs
while I am still struggling through this day
before tomorrow,
when I, best case scenario,
awaken healthy
to begin surviving yet another day
before night’s cold unrest.

So glad you asked
s/he seemed to say
without youthful presumption
of telling me what I already knew,
Good question!

Permaculture Design is rooted in Game Theory,
for those more math and economic science inclined,

Defining our cooperatively-held
long-term resilient
public and private
secular and sacred health outcomes

Through win/win projections
and ego/ecotherapeutic
0/1 cooperative bilateral co-relational zone analysis.

Before I had a chance to mention
that this does not warmly resonate
for the 99% who could care less about theoretical
and/or experiential
math and economic science,

S/he continued,
For those more politically empowerment/disempowerment oriented,
Cooperative Permaculture Design
follows your/our most optimally resonant
Western dualism/Eastern elite/non-elite nondualism
polycultural relationships
balancing polypathic designs with polyphonic health/wealth synergy,
resilient either/or deductive thinking
AND resonant both/and bicameral inductive compassion therapy,
ego-internal as integral with eco-contextual.

While this, too, seemed far too abstract
for warm and inviting lunchtime conversation,
I asked if s/he might try again
about how this could possibly change our lives together.

This same economic and political health framework
can be applied to restoring social justice,
civic cooperativity,
civil rights,
racial multicultural inclusiveness,
environmental Climate Justice

Negatively defined by
all that is equally not-not polycultural injustice;
a universal type of ego/eco double-binary restoration
of internal/external fairness

and legally
and economically
and politically
and socially health preferable
to win/lose retributive “justice”

Which can never produce win/win global green peace
cold unrestful tomorrow night.

While this still feels too much like tomorrow’s promise,
at best 2021 integrity of right mindbody prominent hindsight,
I still had not finished my thin slice
of dryly donated white vanilla cake,
so I stayed through final summary.

By “integral”
we mean cooperative integrity,
positively interdependent me/we relationship
and universally inclusive throughout spacetime

Designs composed of equivalently appreciated nutritional systems,
systemically democratic energy,
power, incoming and outgoing,
nutrients of mutually respirated respect,
communications multiculturally
and polyculturally

Worthy of warm resonant lunchtime discussion
and afternoon implementation
and resilient/resonant dreams
of flying together
more than falling apart.

To this day
when I hear “climate”
I also hear polycultural atmosphere
economically and politically healthier
than monocultural attitude.

I’m sometimes still hungry
and feel homeless,
but now this is a cooperative hunger
and shared cold dry absence
of multigrain communion.

A Healing Society

When directors of social justice,
whether parents
or teachers
or community leaders
or religious leaders
and eco-political livers,
lovers address EarthJustice
by recommending immersion experiences,
journeys to commune with hurting populations
and species
and systems,

We provide a better justice service
by remembering that most vulnerable populations
suffering from diverse systemic subclimate pathologies
are not human societies
individuals eco-political.

If social justice advocates
have any doubts about this,
please consider communing with trees,
producers of renewable oxygen,
useful for the soul function of breathing;
conversing with topsoil nurturers
helpful for recycling nutrition;
consider an immersion experience with boundary swamps
and mouths of rivers
quenching salty ocean thirst,
harboring birds
immersing with tasty insects

In this face of Earth Not-Justice,
we find outdoor life
a long immersion journey
from infant crawling on picnic blankets
to ocean front death shrouds,
tombs within meadows and gardens,
woodlands fueled by radiant sunlight,
fertilized by fully committed bodies
of fibers

and when
and how
could such unfinished immersion end
with EarthJustice?

Although not sure,
not whole,
perhaps this journey only begins
and ends
with outdoor people,
longing to return to solidarity
with trees
and tides
and tale-winds.



A Realer World

When I’m preparing my garden
for the drama of planting
a multicultural communion
lovely above
and interdependently rooted below,
inside human voices
sound pre-occupied with unremediated mediocrity,
what does not richly nurture
what cannot deeply re-nature.

Non-violent communication,
like poetry,
and planting,
is about HOW co-relational win/win messages
therapeutically happen,
metaphorically co-arise consciousness.

Compassionate communication theory,
and love experience,
are about WHY co-relational win/win messages
are healthy-wealth optimizing,
and happen, and do not happen,
enough in each win/lose suffering
egocentric day
on anthrocentric mis-cultured,
distractedly inhumane
unreal Earth.

Whether our analysis is driven by compassionate communication
behavioral structure,
bilaterally supportive mindfulness,
or win/win bicameral game theory
or healthy/pathological custodial systems
regenerative opportunity/degenerative risk-avoidance analysis,
or co-relational left/right
ego/eco-recentering intervention technologies,

We all,
from west to east,
from north to south,
from left to right,
from day to night,
from green to ultra-violet,
from explicate to implicate,
from flower to root,
want to improve political and personal nutritional relationships,
opportunities for growing win/win robust consensus
and minimize toxic and high-risk absence of co-relational
supportive intent.

We all want to grow mindfulness
of intra- and inter-personal healthy communication
nondually present here with now.

Politically incorrect zero-sum competitive communication,
win/lose egocentric miscommunication,
and anthrocentric excommunication
cause global ill-being

Just as politically correct win/win EarthCentric communication
effects and affects
healthy well-being.

Whether in my real world garden,
or on my unreal gridiron.
