Liberation Library

In my personal political library
of capital invested thoughts
about healthier attachment
through co-invested feelings,

Sit-Spot sets
gold lettered Wisdom of Laotse,

Neighboring George Lakoff’s
The Political Mind
growing freedom toward
Laotse’s YangLeft
liberal strength of repurposed thoughts
for recycling wealthy health co-governance,

And Frances Moore Lappe
and Adam Eichen’s
aching Daring Democracy
on his climatic YinRight
conservational intent
for sacred Green WaterBearer sanctuary.

How could I not have earlier noticed
this empowering alphabetical liberation
co-incidence
of climate co-governing resilience?

Sacred Economic Promise
merely setting statically hoarding dust
here on my shelves
waiting for climate restoring notice,
then commitment,
then multigenerational solidarity
of memory and re-imagination,
creation and re-creation,
intellectual curiosity
and co-empathetic courage,
alpha-rhythmic interest
and slow-growing omega co-investment,

Power

Kings and Queens

When capital wealth
produces lusty Kings,

And liberal health
consumes lavish Queens,

Then nature’s many polypaths
predict holy spirit-nature empowering
flowing polyphonic languages
sung and said,
danced and done,
cultured and historic,
eco-felt and theo-reflected,
remembered and re-imagined.

Kings trusting love’s history
and Queens re-investing Earth’s HerStory.

 

Capital investments,
cooperative more than competitive,
socially mediated more than antisocially premeditated
green health more than white wealth motivated,
are remarkably contrasted,
most certainly not equivalent to,
kleptocratic capital-city privileged capitalism.

Liberal corporate-infested capitalism,
with narcissistic quarterly accounting bottom lines
are not the same as cooperative encircling
capital co-investment.

Democratic positive energy balances
do not tip quietly
toward hoarding wealth
while strangling polyculturally co-invested health.

Win/Lose global competitions
to rape what’s left of fading MotherEarth
follow climate degenerating trends
toward green-health detachment.

Competitive human nature,
challenging EarthMother nature co-investing spirits
self-predict future fragmented losses for dying Anthros
and loss of natural/spiritual co-arising life
for all species requiring fertile wombs,
eggs,
seeds,
DNA,
RNA,

Green and blue and red and yellow
ultra-nonviolent
regenerating life’s well-seasoned communications,
integrity black through transparent energy white
communions,
EarthCommon health-wealth polypaths
back through nutritional Earth History,
not so toxically divesting

Listening for Sustainability

My daughter,
with Fetal Alcohol crippling emotional intelligence damage
and Cerebral Palsy perpetual TerribleTwo
“is too many,
because Earth is all about ego-defiant me”
has taught herself
to attach her lips,
and sometimes her wet licking tongue
when she is feeling particularly needy
and/or playful
or maybe just hungry,
to my male dominant capitalist-head
when she needs to feel noticed
attached
connected
invested in
better.

This Saturday morning
she commits the unpardonable sin
of waking up before seven a.m.
Eleven is closer to her business as usual.

After bath and costuming,
both accomplished with as little support from me,
autonomously distracted, as possible,
she goes to our kitchen
to watch her favorite animated song and dance loops
on It’s All About You
Tube.

I am hanging out with my son,
also with cerebral palsy,
but unable to walk without balancing assistance
and unable to talk in either direction,
talk back or proclaim forth,
which is more his sister’s favorite skill set.

After a few minutes
of only slightly compromised peace
this sunny summer Saturday morning,
the daughter comes in
to demand her support staff (me)
prepare her royal breakfast (immediately).

I invite her to self-serve.

She says No!
repeatedly
while I remind her
she is capable of going to the freezer,
extracting one microwave pancake and sausage
on a stick,
wrapping it in one square of paper towel,
opening the microwave door,
placing it on the rotating glass plate inside,
closing the door,
pushing 1, 0, 0,
waiting for the ding,
and removing her breakfast by holding the stick,
waiting for it to cool,
removing the paper towel,
and devouring the pancake,
then the sausage,
as usual.

She responds
I want you to do it.

I respond
I want you to do it.

“No, Help me!”

“I am helping you!”

“No!
You do it; not me!”

“Why?”

“Because I”m watching my tablet.”

“And I’m trying to meditate
and write!”

“No! Help me!”

So, I ask for a time out.
We have been at this same impasse countless times.
It’s a ritual,
obsessive and compulsively lose/lose.
We are both not listening
while we are also not meditating
and watching
and writing healthier song and dance stories.

What’s happening here?
You know you can make your own breakfast.
Is this about not wanting to be alone?
Do you want me to show you
how crazy I am about you?

“Can I have a kiss?”

And then we do the “my lips on your head”
And “my head on your lips” ritual.
I give her a back and shoulder massage
while she has her therapeutic attachment breakfast.

My daughter smiles,
leaves the room without further demands,
goes back to the freezer,
pulls out a Blanketed Pig
on a stick…

I go back to writing
about resilience
and remediating potential lose/lose Earth climates
and emotionally cooperative reparations.

My son goes back to sleep,
having had a good belly laugh
at our curiously outspoken craziness,
reminding me
Curiosity is a more effective left-hemisphere tool
than working hard to feel right-hemisphere patience
in the face of apparent weapons
wielded by alien win/lose forces
in an otherwise win/win potentiated
interactive ego/eco-system.

He sits up,
groaning
repeatedly,
until I re-emerge
aware
He needs a diaper change,
on this peaceful sunny summer Saturday morning
riding still-revolving climates of Earth
re-creating green-blue-red
ultra-nonviolent win/win living systems
of actively communicating co-enlightenment.

Maybe we’ll have lunch on the backyard deck
under our barn red umbrella
as the Thames River continues to flow downstream
from northern stars
toward southern sun sustaining states.

Hopeful Whistling Signs

I recall similar signs and notices
of ironic appeal:

“We have a zero-tolerance policy against bullying”
ripped and torn,
and is that a dried yellow yolk stain?

“This is a NO GUNS neighborhood”
surrounded by a lot
vacant except for weeds
mulched in broken shards of glass.

ZERO CRIME AREA notices
as prolific as NO HUNTING signs
in SureWood BeNice Forest.

Me thinks
we protest
too much
to not raise questions
about the wisdom of declaring victory
and moving on,
rather than struggling through win/lose
toward win/win resilient climates of peace.

Perhaps the guns
and their bully keepers
can’t read,
or don’t choose to notice the notice,
or don’t have enough time
in their conflicted day
on their lose/lose way
to making liars
of our best win/win published intentions

Made by frustrated raw spot prey
on some other day
in some other room
they would not
could not
should not feel free to enter
listen
then speak transparently
of their/our own vulnerably exhausted sweet spots

Now worn into deeply entrenched
isolated anger
hate
fear
envy
mistrust
distrust
defensive fight and/or flee choices

Provoked by win/lose competitive environments
cultures
climates
experiences
not bully and gun and crime
and co-related raw spot free.

Universal compassion
is a worthy goal.
But declaring goals already achieved
does not help induce real world cooperative progress,
especially for those not in the room
to help write our negative injunctions.

Perhaps we would healthier
and more effectively begin
with our positive universal aspirations:

We invite Zero Intolerance
Learning to listen with active compassion.

This is a ProPeace place
Cooperatively held active safe space
for growing our ego/eco-managed win/win grace.

We multiculturally and inclusively love co-passion searches
rather than dispassioned hunts
and nihilistic degenerative desertions.

Healthy people
seldom step out in anger
while co-inviting ourselves to step into compassion
with coming peacefully home messages
rather than angry commands to go back
to alien lose/lose lands from which none of us
could ever hope to survive,
much less win/win thrive.

Signs against patriarchal colonizing offenses
do not give compassionate notice
we are for matriarchal creolizing passions.

Walking While Reading

I was walking while reading
because this had been recommended,…

Well,…
actually more like required reading
while walking,
rather than too much blindly reading
while passively impassively sitting through
Earth-reflective stalking exercises

For improving body health
and soul wealth,

Not that these are really two different things,
detached from some primal relationship,
but more like…
Hmmm…
Yang walk and Yin listen,
and leftbrain secular dominant
and rightbrain sacred prominent
harmonic universal-unitarian
egalitarian egos
and interdependent eco-webbed to play
win/win role-plays
games
jazz improvised walking dances
soulfully reading gospel flung
while sung meditation opportunities.

Meanwhile,
and coincidentally,
Barbie and Ken are driving south on Route 8,
talking about stuff
they usually get stuck with talking about
and over
and occasionally even all the way through
each other’s emotional intelligence.

Talking about things like stocks and bonds.

Who stole the food stocks
from the kitchen
and who is out on bond
just now.

When suddenly Barbie noticed me:

“Look Ken,
a guy who can both walk and read
and do them coincidentally!”

“Well, dear, I can walk and read at the same time,
too!”

“Yes dear,
but would you live to tell of it,
here on Route 8,
north or south?
Walk and read meditation
is not as GoldenRule easy
as walking through your own backyard
while chewing gum.
I wonder what he’s reading.”

“Why would that be a question
a normal person might think to randomly ask?
Do you wonder what every reading person you pass
may or may not
could or could not
should or should not
be reading?”

“No, Ken,
Just the ones who pass me by without wonder
or the slightest hint of mutual awe.”

“But…”

“Never mind.
Readers while walking are exceptions
to my active/passive curiosity rule.
Would you like to turn around
so I can ask him
what he’s reading?”

“You’re serious?”

“No, playful and curious.”

“Does reading while walking appeal to you
in some warm and fuzzy sensory way?”

“Maybe.
Depends on what you’re reading.”

“Should I be feeling threatened right now?”

“Only if win/lose feels like a healthy
and holonically integral
noetic intelligence choice, Ken.”

“What would choice have to do with feeling threatened
or holistically supported?
And did those words
just come out of my mouth
in that order?”

“No worries, dear.
You can’t help your yang leftbrain autonomous-deluded self,
but we can
together ask him:

“Excuse me!…
Excuuuuse Meeee…!!

“Me?”

“Do you see anyone else around?”

“Well, this river birch birthed right here,
and that crab grass.
You would be surprised how many people scream at crabgrass.”

“No, I wouldn’t honey;
But probably not anything about ‘excuse me, please.’
Listen,
Ken and I want to know what you’re reading.”

“So,
you just drove down Route 8 south,
saw me walking while reading, going north,
turned around near the cemetery
to drive back north
to ask me what I’m reading?
And people think I’m nuts….
Thich Nhat Hanh,
I’m reading his gospel for compassionate walking
and wellness reading while listening
to sensory-emotive intelligence,
through non-violent nutritiously regenerative communication;
Which makes him a little difficult to grasp
while motorists shout ‘Excuse Me!’
Which I had hoped was an apology for exhausting our air
until another Ken,
when I responded ‘Namaste, no worries’
Said he wasn’t talking to me
but to another Barbie
not regeneratively listening
in his patriarchal sports car.”

Barbie asked me
if I could give her a brief unchoreographed review
of secular walking while sacred listening
to internal left with right
co-arising dipolar
win/win healthier climate conversations.

“I don’t think so,
and my feet and legs and arms and voice
aren’t feelin’ it at all.”

So then she and Ken invited themselves
to leave their car,
or was it a tank?
to walk with me
while reading aloud.

We’re still timelessly traveling along
alone
while reading and listening
together;

Sometimes advocating against
corporate wealth
measured in stocks and bonds,
and recreatively researching self
with other cooperative wealth
measured in health
on our revolving while sacredly listening
EarthWomb

Restoring win/win justice
while Gaian Goddess feels
polyculturing integral ZeroZoned
open-systemic
musical fractal-octaved
spacetime 4D-scaled
and structured
and instructed bilateral co-passion,

Universally timeless yang walking
while unitingly eternal yin reading
democratic climates of health
and kleptocratic pathology.

Later,
we were walking while reading
because this had been recommended…

RightBrain Victims Speak

What if we live in and out
among and yet autonomously
with and sometimes against
LeftBrain dominant enculturation?

Colonization,
predation with ego-logical economic secular outcomes
too often predicting compromised long-term health
in exchange for conserving an evolutionary win/lose model
serving industriously degenerating corporate conglomerate capital expansion
of wealth devoid of health care giving and receiving values,

LeftBrain predation theologies of WhiteGod’s self-righteous might
makes historically aggressive colonialism
just more business as usual
“Bullying boys will be bullying everyone,”
what else could you win/win ecofeminist respect?

LeftBrain education in competitive win/lose evolutionary history
and patriarchally dominant enculturation
as a divinely inspired Creation Story

LeftBrain Paradise
and win/lose Rapturously exclusive
acrimonious monocultural dogmatic anti-systemic
fragmenting
degenerative
unhealthy theo-unlovely supremacist outcomes,
predicting lose/lose eventual outgoes
rather than win/win integrity incoming.

Climate reparations
in praise of Mother Earth
sounds incompatible with
“Those who have more
most will be given
by a patriarchal privileged colonizing Creator
of exclusive anthro-centric languages
and creeds
and elitist cultures
cynical about democracy’s most healthy unspecialized opportunities.

AND,
I still can also actively love
through a rightbrain sacredly engaging multicultural passion
for light
and passionate heart-throbs
and compassionately resilient health
and resonant wealth
robust therapeutic regenerativity of EarthWombs
wherever She has time and placed us

Ecologically empowering climate communion commencements
toward Paradise,
our original EarthVoices praising win/win revolutions
advocating resilient freedom
of cooperative community ownership
with optimal transparent security
of stairs and streets,
forests and oceans for conserving wealth
of healthy waters and mountains
throughout all past climate life extinctions.

In this noetic intelligence space,
those who have less integrity
receive more nutritionally robust sensory skills
more resonantly and cooperatively received
through a matriarchally resilient,
democratically win/win communioned
eco-covenanted regenerative history
of green resilient ecologically eco-empowering
co-transactionally cooperative Earth.

What if the One great seed of historic love,
like light,
like passion roots,
is known by many healthy multiculturing names,
Animus/Anima Mundi,
Holonic Nature/Spirit,
Kcinewis,
CoArising Yang/Yin DiPolarity,
Left/Right Polycultural Healthy Wealth Win/Win SpaceTime
Regenerative-Affective
Enthymematic-Noetic Communication Theory?

What if the original divine inspiration
for humane DNA-scriptured sacramental becoming
reborn on Earth
is also air-borne stardust
originally breezed and gusted
and flame fired across foggy warm oceans?
As sperm later embraced eggs,
as privileged egg-white nutrition
clings to healthy yellow-wombed yolks,
as prescient tombs co-acclimating
to incubate healthy bicameral intelligence,
ego/eco-temporal
heart-oriented,
health-wombed.

What if Lose/Lose
by fighting against
and flight away
were rethought
newly win/win imagined
as flight toward
and fighting in solidarity with life as opportunity
against disengagement from outside nature/spirit Voices
and for healthy humanely compassionate re-engagement
with MotherEarth?

Revolutions of historic matriarchal restorations
for active economic and political
sensory and sexual raw
transparent
vulnerable spots
becoming deeply emotive nutritional places
within affectively effective
EarthWombed
cooperational
slow-sweet leisure time.

Stardust breezy memories
feeding and lighting oceans of warm sense-nurturing images,
wealth watering embodied noetic health
for better climate empowering spacetime
ZeroZones not not universally open and principled being One
yet integrally compassionate rebecoming
timeless not not ZeroSum
ego/eco Win/Win mutual reparation partners
through MotherEarth’s global health
eco-empowering economy
of non-violent
co-passionate
multiculturally intelligent
communication about co-present light and love.

What if we live in and out
among and yet within,
integrity of RightBrain prominent
LeftBrain dominant
ego/eco co-enculturation?
Where health of one
is wealth of ZeroSum not not resilient Other
hearts with non-violent speaking minds.

Peak Experience

Back in late pre-millennial times
of lava lamps
and Rolling Stones,
many searched for peak experiences,
in response to valley depressences
repressed
suppressed,
rather than panoramic,
even revolutionary,
resonant and resilient impressions.

Peak experiences were,
and still are,
I am told by those who’ve had them,
personal,
individualistic,
or possibly dyadic climaxes,
but probably not orgiastic,
which is more of a swarming bee thing
co-spastic
if I accurately follow their pollination story
through its peaks and valleys.

Abraham Maslow talked
and wrote
about climbing a hierarchy of sensory needs,
from survival attachment
up to thrival
growing toward a more interdependently accessible peak
and descending for a more independent survival battle
to return to more cooperative peak health experiences
of left brain articulating thought
and right brain consciousness
of up and down
valley repression
and mountainous impression
feelings.

Now in post-millennial times,
pathology has become a climatic
traumatic
despairing experience of climate anxiety,
prompting new internal/external searches
for ways to optimize globally resilient peak experience.

For this,
we need the miraculous mysterious mysticism
of cooperative win/win integrity
in-between and among all ecological living relationships
sailing up and down river systems
and across mountain forests
and through all creatures and creations,
lovers and healthy loved,
rhetorical lived events
and historical reflective advents

Tipping between yesterday and tomorrow
resonantly lived
ego peak safely and yet freely eco-valleyed
spiritual health
within flowing messianic times
of natural wealth.
