Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
pseudo-science,
nondual
nonviolent
inscrutable
paradoxical
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
analogy,
theological ecology.

Polynomials,
western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
free,
liberated,
communal saints
and divided sinners.

Wisdom’s Healthy Passions

“We have an enemy within called the ego
who prevents us from using our mind intelligently.
It hides deep within our heart
and emerges with regularity
to challenge and consume our will.”
Rumi (M. Mafi, trans.)

We have a challenger wrestling within called our Ego
emerging with regularity
to confront and distort our deeper will
for more happy and healthy eco-normal,
eco-normic
economic
ecological bi-hemispheric resilience.

Not one of us believes in optimizing incarnate power
within ourselves,
without any Other
to laugh
and cry
and talk therapy together,

A State
or Nation,
Empire,
Earth
our Solar SystemicFueled Universe,
feel incompatible with a total vacuum of any power among,
without capacity for co-empowering exchange,
transactions
barter,
borrowing,
betting,
negotiating,
laughing with
and not against.

I find no faith in omnipotent power of love’s one-way intent,
without evidence of co-evolving
revolving peace-growing practice,
good humored
more than bad and sad maligned,

No omnipotent power of love
without all EarthTribe’s ecotherapeutic joyous practice.

While Earth evolves an orbiting planet
composed of diverse tribal species,
polyculturing forms,
healthy and eco-logical social functions,
rich octaved frequencies,

Earth is also one holistic cooperative
self-regenerating economy;
which rises and falls with surfing humor
surfacing analogical tipping point balance,
sad yet glad of ego-centric Yang’s smirking
with eco-flexic Yin’s prime double-binary quirking
regenerative
double-negative
binomial not not metric nomial
and/or symmetric polynomial
with logical equivalence.

Economics evolved from agrarian
and survival instinct origins
when our original transactional intent was to sustain
cooperative breath
and bicamerally balancing heartbeats
reciprocal
synchronous
polyphonic memory of self as interdependently identified
from and with healthy and happy-balanced Other,
to culturally understand patient Self
as parasitic indwelling humor
within a sometimes benignly balanced,
normative four-seasoned,
cooperative DNA-encrypting
light/dark predative habitual Host,

Co-arousingly displayed
by good and bad humored ego/ecosystems
of nutrition transactional residency,
healthy body,
happy home,
hilarious family,
hot tribe,
humorous species,

Exchanging
bartering
fore-giving
redeeming values healing economic faltering extensions
of eco-political
cooperative
systemic
warm-humoring development.

Stimulus-Response
as What comes comedy/tragedy around, goes around,
as GoldenRules and irritating IrrationalRatios
non-zero sum
where half-root of two is always one,
as nomials predict binomial distinctions,
as half of 1 Ego
is (0)Soul eco-centric,
fully empowered
when not humorless zeroed out.

What are we health becoming,
that commerce
and markets
and sustainable new economics
pause with unholy terror
and awed stagnant, flat-line silence,
horrific wonder about our erratic change
of climate’s rhythms
and patterns
without harmonics?

Belonging good humored with joy
as this TransMillennial Regeneration’s internal healthy happy climate
predicts scorchingly manic
tragic competition
laughing against our own understory
in hypothermic silos
of homicidal and suicidal depression,
a too-polypathic absorption
into sadly dying EarthTribe identification.

What would we be
if we could justly restore
multicultural economics of ecotherapy
applied within our without synergetic
well-humored landscape,
and within our without ego-empty
(0)-sum
not not eco-centric love?

Warnings against health interference
predict teachings for good-humored interdependence.

There are those who would conquer
everything and everyone.
Their Wins are our Losses

And make of us what they conceive
in unwise dishumored desire.

One cannot ultimately win
a win/lose tragic competition game
unless there are at least two comedic survivors
willing to finish-off
ZeroSum
mean humored play
at war.

This Solar-Interdependent System
is Earth’s own ego-humored
normal eco-logical Vessel

S/he cannot be made whole by human nature’s
ignorant humorless interference,
stumbling about like trumpeting elephants
uprooting tender grass.

Those who commodify eco-happy value
spoil it.
Those who hoard this nutritious well-being wealth
lose it.

For: Some yangs go happy forward,
as some yins follow therapeutically humored behind,
like surf surging in,
then teasing back out,

Some breathe out too hot,
so some breathe in to cool off;

Some are too badly strong,
so some are goodness wilting;

Some species have madly broken,
so all species may sadly fall.

Hence Wisdom eschews human nature’s anthro-centric hubris,
evolving aversive
toward extravagant power overing
Earth,
each transparently laughing Other
avoids egocentric pride,
dissonant with ecocentric
eco-normic
comprehensive comprehension
of Nature’s prime systemic wu wei humored consciousness

Of principal tipping point healthy balance
toward optimized
sustainable comedy/tragedy of all life
wherever it can be multiculturally planted,
languaged,
spoken,
sung,
healthed,
laughed.

I Do When You Do

There is one word that can be the guide for your life–
it is the word
reciprocity.
Pearl Buck

There are several synonymous words
co-arising feelings
needs
co-gravitating wants
personal and social integrity
political and economic synergy
neurological and psychological
ecological and theological

That can guide life v death,
health v pathology
cooperative wealth v competitive disinvestment
regeneration v degeneration
love v despair
impression v depression.

These include words of passion–
Compassion
co-passion
passion story
impassioned v dispassioned v mispassioned.

E. O. Wilson speaks of biological Consilience
where linguists and political historians
recall co-gravitating Creolization,
peaceful co-enculturation,
rather than patriarchal greedy excesses
of one-power sided colonization.

Neuro-psychologists,
more positive pro-health
than negative anti-pathologists,
recommend Resilient-Resonance.

Ecologists and theologians
prefer sustainably regenerative ego-centers
and eco-systems.

Bicameral neurologists
commune left with right hemisphere
harmonic wants with feelings
for compassionate therapeutic communication.

Communication therapists
and mediators
speak out and listen up
for Enthymematic communication,
curiously and courageously opaque
and dual dark
reflective absence of cognitive-affective
left-right dissonance.

Priests
and Preachers
and Teachers invoke secular/sacred
natural/spiritual communion
communication
community
cooperative economics
and win/win political theology
preparing us to receive mysterious Transubstantiation
regeneration
creolization
resilient compassion,
polyphonic rhapsody,
polypathic reciprocity,

More like co-investing with Buck
than passing the buck.

Mindful HealthCare

Spiritual minds
invite healthy natural bodies
to curiously enjoy safe and significant,
secular and sacred, rhythms
of bicameral co-regulation,
trilateral ego/eco/theo-communication

Further embracing polyphonic
rightbrain resonance
exploring leftbrain polypathic resilience

Of spiritual minds
inviting healthy natural bodies
to curiously enjoy…

What I Want

What I want,
probably need,
from people of compassionate
active
positive faith
in sacred covenants
in healthy energy democracies,
in cooperative co-empathic learning systems:

Integrity,
Impressive co-investments
rather than depressive divestment,
Integral cooperative ownership
more than autonomous competitions,
Intimately transparent management
stewardship
facilitation
multiculturally vulnerable mediation
among and within Earth’s holonic
holy
living webs of compassionate communication,
energy,
bicameral healthy/wealth

Intelligence, cognitive and affective,
deductive and inductive,
individual and contextual,
ego and eco,
left and right hemisphere nonduality
co-passion
co-invested balance in harmony
polypathic synergy
polyphonic
creolizing polycultural
polytheistic cooperative underlying values
for democratic global health
as EarthWealth

Is what I want,
intrinsically
intuitively need,
from people of compassionate
explicitly active
positive faith in sacred covenants,
in health-energy democracies,
in cooperative
co-empathic
deep learning communication systems.

What Is Love’s Difference?

What is the difference
between an anti-theist
and a pro-humanist?

What is the difference
between a terrorist
and a terrific zest?

What is the remainder
when subtracting NonZero-Sum WinWin EarthBodied outcomes
from Zero-Sum WinLose capital incomes?

Why do
Permaculture Designs
and Restorative Sacred Justice Resolutions
share the same healthy wealth goals?
If they do,
and why don’t they,
if they don’t?

What is the health value comparison
between competitive LeftBrain dominant educational disciplines
and cooperative Right/Left predominate deep learning co-invitations?

What is the therapeutic value
noticing differences between invidious comparisons
and virtuous contrasts,
between bipolar oppositions
and dipolar co-arising appositions?

What is difference
and sameness
within non-violently healthy communication
and compassionately wealthy co-empathy?

What are cooperative tipping point systems
in-between ecological LeftBrain health-cultures
and theological RightBrain sanctuary climates?
Between secular
and sacred,
nature
and spirit,
exhale
and inhale,
compete against pressure
and cooperate with atmosphere?

What is the difference
between a win/lose agnostic
about Earth’s sacred integrity
and a Win/Win bicameral humanist
within Earth’s health-optimizing
revolving
returning
recycling
repurposing
reweaving
redeeming
resonant
resilient
regenerative synergy?

What is cooperatively owned
pantheistic DNA
and profoundly democratic-trust energy,
bicamerally trans-humanistic,
polyculturally self/other empowering,
Win/Win co-investment
in wealth of health nutritional
bio- and geo-systems,
ego- and eco-therapeutic networks
yang- and yin-healing operations?

Sacred Discernment

Perhaps a way to turn
from failed
and often violent
retributive justice
to grab healthy hold
of restorative justice

Would ask,
What is this deep difference
between discerning judgment
and moralistic judgment?

To discern,
and not to condemn,
is mutually empowering
and not autonomously powering over another,
against all Others potentially suspicious,
falling short of my own godlike Mark,
Imprimatur,
Papal Seal of good personal housekeeping.

Moralistic judgment
is a win/lose game
always casting oneself
and one’s own
as protagonist,
self-righteous wise Prosecutor,
representing your State’s infinite not-listening Wisdom.

Discerning judgment
is a win/win game
of cooperative
co-invested compassion.

Discerning judgment
begins with listening for what we already share
in common point of view.

Moralistic judgment
seldom finds time
for such resonant celebration
in cooperatively-held sorrow
and joy,
personal defeat
and political triumph.

Active win/win discernment
bears more humbly in mind and heart and voice,
Do not tear apart
what we can’t put back together
again
and again
and again

As faithfully as healing sunrise
and therapeutic sunset;
As mysteriously
and curiously restoring moon rise
and resonant moon fall.
