Rejoining Work With Play

Dividing work from play,
like noting night not day,
is useful in a left brain dominant way
yet not so good
in right and left to-gathering
communicating say.

In my most real
and sacred trust right mind
no profound difference I find,
not even any healthy reason to distinguish
secular and physical work
from sacred mental play,
cooperative investment
from perpetuating multicultural empowerment,
communicating humors, dark and light,
virtuous polypathic and polyphonic
reiterative exchange loops,
harmonious circles,
seasons of processing health
producing nutritious wealth,

Sacred trinities of ego
and eco
and double-binding ego/eco
searching truth statements
about compassionate regenerative EarthBound patriotism
to this planet home of humored Earth,

Host of work and play
wealth and health co-passioning experience
left-autonomous either secular or sacred
with both natural and spiritual rights more integral
re-creative process
and nondual Eastern passions,

Cognition from emotion,
being from becoming,
ego belonging Left from eco-longing Right
universal secular nutritional memories
from unitarian tribal experience
originating in EarthMothers’ eco-wombed Communion
health-wealth Commons
politically empowering
economic win/win healing ecology

In my most real and sacred true right mind
I find
no profound secular difference,
not even any sacred healthy reason
to distinguish
or extinguish
secular physical engagement
from sacred mental cooperative commitment.


Emotional Intelligence

Glutted left-brain information media
actively hope to understand

Why does emotional intelligence
speak to egocentric concerns
of mortality and discomforting toxic defeat,
loss and difficult win/lose everyday choices
in a calming voice for unself-conscious contentment?

What is this ZeroSoul content of contentment
to feel we are right
sentient full beings
here co-present
within eternal now relationships of compassion
affiliating on this Earth
in our co-passioning interdependent webs
of health co-operative
wealthy co-investment

Without mortal loss,
Without unwanted walls between us
and them.

Why does emotional unintelligence
speak too loudly
of Earth-UnCentered constant concerns
of inhumane immortal overpowers
and toxic LoseHealth/LoseWealth
RightWing left-brain dominant choices
in cacophonous dissonant voices
claiming no rights to contentedly tolerate
only healthier multicultures
of win/win emotional intelligence?


Liberal LeftWing Flight

It has been said
Charles Darwin was not happy
with leftbrain’s Survival of the Fittest
without rightbrain’s ecosystemic health roots
in Thrival of the Fittin-ingest,

Which Bateson,
and other systemic ecologists,
would later call interdependent co-acclimation,
and Jane Gordon politically theorizes
rare histories of win/win creolization
with much healthier outcomes
and wealthier too,
than leftbrain’s fascination
with wealth-acquiring colonization.

Foolish leftbrain dominance,
so unaware history has regeneratively concluded
there is no lasting resilient wealth
without ecosystemic EarthClimate health.

Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations
produced similar unease
about evolutionary theories
denying the primally obvious
Health of Interdependent NationStates
through robust natural/spiritual Earth consciousness,
co-passioning double-binding nonduality,
like bipolar either Yang or Yin of reductive ZeroSum reasoning
and dipolar both Yang with Yin of inductive ZeroSoul co-nurturing.

While Adam Smith’s leftbrain wrote,
“The necessity of civil government grows up
with the acquisition of valuable property…
till there be property there can be no government,
the very end of which is to secure wealth,
and to defend the rich
from the poor.”

His more interdependently ecosystemic rightbrain
was feeling,
“The opportunities of civilizing governance grows up and out
with the acquisition of healthy interdependent properties
of communal co-acclimation…
till there be cooperatively integral properties
there can be no ego/ecosystemically thriving co-governance,
the very beginning through end of which is to secure health,
and to defend the poor
from the kleptocratic colonizations
of the too leftbrain dominant rich.”

Where “capitalism permits wealth
to purchase,
and profit from natural resources,”
notes Kenneth Cloke’s ecosystemic analysis,

There also,
integralism, integrity,
invites health to invest in,
to cooperatively own wealth,
and resiliently benefit with nondual natural/spiritual resources,

Not only LeftBrain “exhausting the land on which our food is produced,”
but also RightBrain feeding our soil-souls
from which our sensory nutritional awareness is rooted
and wombed;

Not only “poisoning the water we drink
and polluting the air we breathe,”
But also healing the living waters we consume
and collaboratively purifying the air trees breathe
and bicameral lungs digest

Not merely “the sale and consumption of fossil fuels,
irrevocably heating our planet,
altering our weather,
raising sea levels,
extinguishing countless species
and threatening the survival of millions,
if not all species”…

But also re-investment in natural/spiritual
left/right systems
interdependently cooling our robust planet,
re-acclimating our weather,
re-lowering sea levels,
cooperatively planting and nurturing countless species
and fostering the thrival of ecosystemically resilient millions,
if not all left/right
yang/yin balancing
anthro/eco-systemic life
on secular/sacred
unfolding explicate/refolding implicately co-arising
win/win binomial ZeroSoul compassion with Earth.

Where leftbrain’s either + or (-,-)1
is also rightbrain’s resolution
both + and (-,-)0-Soul,
like positive psychology polynomials
equivalently health/wealth valued
as not-not polynomial
neurologically interdependent polypathic web systems,
inviting both wealthy rightbrain polyphonic co-passion
and further leftbrain healthy curiosity.

Note: This piece is heavily indebted to the dialogue and conflict resolution work, growing more robust resilient democracy systems, as found in Kenneth Cloke’s “Politics, Dialogue and the Evolution of Democracy.” concerned with how to win/win discuss race, abortion, immigration, gun control, climate change, same sex marriage, and other Hot Topics.


Restoring Natural Spirits

Dear Attorney Thompson Page, LLC
Sentient Advocate for Domestic Companions

Thank you for reminding me
last evening, as I was feeling unfree,
Retributive justice is rooted in ecological principles
of healthy empathic relationships
communications between sentient beings.

For remembering that good
effective legal systems
intend to protect our interdependent webs
while too often building punishing walls
settling into side-by-side cells
of separation,
fragmentation of wealthy democratic purposes
like robust well-being,
cooperatively-owned curiosity and prosperity,
healthy and courageous happiness,

Constitutional gratitude for compassionate priorities
win/wins for both justice and peace possibilities
of EarthTribe patriotic loyalties
encompassing suffering and joy.

You mentioned several crimes against sentient beings.
Some punished by legal precedent
for protecting human nature
more than Earth-nature’s other sentient breathing forms
legally misunderstood,
not well-defined,
as mere property,

Properties autonomously owned by narcissistic human natures,
Legally presumed as morally superior sentient beings,
becoming evermore integrity’s active win/win advocates,
inclusively aware
we are not humanely alone
in our co-empathic capacities for emotive communication.

I am wondering,
this morning,
if it would make a nondualistic difference
to our legal-moral systems
to notice, and give germane standing, to Lovelock’s Gaian Hypothesis
that multicultural Earth is a globally sentient ecosystem
capable of internal/external balancing health care,
evolutionary regenerative development
through complex organically organized sentience,
ecosystemically communicating awareness
between subclimates managing our diverse property
and properties for competitive/cooperative
walled/webbed bicameral communion.

If our legal oaths,
moral allegiances,
were to understand
One nation, under God
as also
One of many interdependent nations
and a few continents
and oceans
within Earth’s sentient integrity
of ecotherapeutic properties,

I wonder if punishing and fragmenting judgment systems
would fade into second place,
deferring to primal natural justice
for restoring healthy sentient relationships
between Earth’s propertied tribes,

Could natural/spiritual legal properties
swing back toward universally uniting
what could not be healthy secular/sacred divided
by health-intelligent
Earth’s most sentient-wealthy beings?


Positively Deviant

She seems afraid to say too much
and not listen enough.

Perhaps fear of becoming misunderstood
and, worse, too quickly dismissed,
her moment,
even in this small-staged sanctuary,

She wants to share with us
her deviant dissonant sufficiency
usually seen as negative degenerating autonomy
but, occasionally, in epiphanies of positive
ecologically healthy
revolutionary ZeroZen deviant resonant potential,

Receptive tingling silence
thumping and breathing
autonomously ringing singing
timelessly herstoric
within domesticating unreal world paradise,
unwombed worn integrity re-memories
echoing between nightseed dreams
and switching off her leftbrain daily alarm.

Until she smiles
I am impressed by her nothing is sadly wrong
yet everything goes unsanctuary too patriarchally long,

Business As RightWing World gone,
anxiety about personal and political
and social and psychological
and mental and physical health issues
for future climate chaos kids
reversing integrity’s robust synergetic win-win potential.

I notice then
soft teeth with nearly infinite hard work
suffering loss,

Physically alone,
and not not spiritually autonomous
feminist suffering deviance
often in counterculturing ways
to help others,
more win-lose predominant,
suffer unspoken withdrawal less.

I see her primal eyes smile
and suddenly my own competitive mistrust,
my own positive deviant naked fear,
goes away,
dismissed by curious eagerness.

Compassion therapeutically co-arises.

I ask if she too suffers
without sufficient release
from mutually withheld win-win loneliness,
mistrust of fully disclosed intimacy
co-empathic joy.

She continues
now turning toward wealthy belly laughs
co-operating integrity
mutually vibrating abdowomen,
soul sound of synergy’s vast wisdom
loudly rooting for win-win potential global health
through her sanctuary solidarity,
still curiously becoming.

She seems fearless to listen too much
and eager to not say enough.


Mixed Taxed and UnTaxed Blessings

Those of us
who have had guilty pleasures
of owning valuable property,
like a car
and rental property
and office equipment

Office buildings,
solar inverters,
and nuclear holocaust delivery systems
but not MBA degrees
or intellectual property
or more privately owned emotional properties,

Those of us
who know the mixed blessings
of owning organic and mechanical fragments
of climate pathologized,
yet still breathing, planet Earth,
especially if taxable property,
have heard about depreciation of values
over their natural/mechanical life/utility time.

We might recall
depreciation of property value
decelerates gradually over time,
barring any unfortunate head-on accidents,
flying and melting and fragmenting damage,
accelerating astronomical crises
eliminating long-term realistic health-wealth values.
Depreciated suddenly to total loss of asset value,
now a global junk-dealer liability.

just as depreciation decelerates over time,
appreciation accelerates resilience
with time’s enduring health/wealth cooperative life-experience,

Organic systems accelerate robust cooperative integrity
over a deep learning nutritious multiculturing life-time
of Win/Win

Growing in good-humored co-investment priorities
for story telling and listening
to Win/Win co-opportunities

Rather than continuing historic depreciated taking
and Win/Lose epic slow-losing ego/economic depressions,

Anti-systemic pathologies,
realistic predictions of global chaos.

Retributive injustice depreciations
slowly fade toward entropic disorganization
just the restorative opposite
of appreciative Win/Win compassion

Explicitly conscious
of living interdependently between and within
autonomously natural depreciative law
and polypathic open-systemic/spiritual
yang/yin multicultural
left/right psychological
self/other empowering
deep and wide learning order.


Next To Godliness

What would you say,
if yours to freely choose,
lies closest to godliness:
Resilient health,
Wise wealth?


Does your answer change
if this question changes to:
What lies closest to Gaian Earth Goddessness
for you?

If your nearby synonym changes, why?
If not, why not?

These questions came up
when I was looking for a dissertation topic
for InterReligious Dialogue and InterNational Diplomacy.

My Big Question statement began:

The technology and philosophy of dialogue,
conflict resolution,
restorative justice,
WinWin solutions,
derive from philosophy,
natural and social sciences,
and perhaps even abstract psychotherapeutic geometrics.

Rather than asking the more classical academic questions
of how are public health empowerment resources
better and worse than each other,
how do they best practices differ?
Perhaps it is more fruitful to diversely
and interdependently
compare these health/pathology paradigms
to search for their most resilient therapeutic WinWin communion
and wealthy holonic promise.

And so I began inviting the widest,
most diversely multicultural, dialogue
about what are our highest health and therapeutic priorities
for cooperative people
who understand godliness and/or Gaian-ness
as at least sufficient power
for synergetic integrity
to generate light
out of nondual darkness.

Which, on living Earth,
has produced some astounding evolution of compassionate grace history,
polynomial WinWin communication,
polypathic ways
and ego/eco-balancing
and cooperatively centering means
to godliness
and/or Gaian-nest integral hypotheses.
