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.

Marriage Quarantine

I wonder
if marriage could be less of a quarantine
from significant other relationships
and more of a prime relationship
in love’s easy and difficult lessons,
growing more resonant as opening out
to deeper and wider resonant caregiving
and receiving,
extending familial relationships
which, in turn,
do not predominately compete for time
but primally cooperate
with our initial attachment bond.

This feels like the opposite
of a marriage model
in which each partner expects,
sometimes demands,
that all attachment needs
for ecological
and theological
and biological
and sociological
and neurological connection
and healthy cooperative reconnection,
communication,
communion will become monoculturally
and magically met
by this one other mere mortal person.

I wonder, sometimes,
if marriage,
cooperative partnership
and management
and ownership experience,
of creolizing multicultural health
has devolved into a left-brain dominant theory
of humane relationship
sustainable only through threat
of punishing non-exclusive
non-supremacist relationships
emotionally isolating,
commodified,
increasingly codependent
competitive lack of healthy eco-political
democratic co-governance.

Could marriage grow not only co-gravitating
bipolar passion
but also dipolar co-arising compassion,
re-connection,
re-generativity,
resonant resilience,
resting in robust health/wealth
yang/yin
universal/unitarian
left/right communion?

Not so much a polyvagal theory
of partnership;
More of a polypathic experience
in- and ex-forming
EarthRooted healthy marriage,
partnership,
communion.

Better Public HealthCare Planning

How much simpler
and yet vastly more complex,
diversely resonant,
past decisions to hire the credentialed professional elite
also choices not to hire a charismatic
brown-skinned
ecofeminist,

And how much more resilient
urgently cooperative
corporate win/win covenant repercussions might have been
if we stopped compartmentalizing,
and started intersectionalizing,
creolizing
transubstantiating
synergizing
integrating
regenerating
co-arising and co-gravitating
Win/Win assertiveness with non-violent communication Training,
CoInvestment Practice,
Multicultural Restorative Justice experience,
Truth and reconciliation,
Remuneration of cooperatively-owned health values,
Interdependent ecological and theological merit,
Compassion wealth.

If we could hear her outloud notice:

I feel sometimes angry
sometimes fearful,
sometimes courageous
sometimes curious,
and always disappointed
that I took this vulnerable risk
to transparently offer all that is my leadership gift
and then experience why this is still not enough:

Because I lack leftbrain dominant credentials,
Because I do not speak with cold white patriarchal dispassion,
Because I do not know disconnection as capital-business as usual,
Because I will not despair
of win/win felt outcomes
as if win/lose default unrealistic.

What then,
following this assertively non-violent vulnerability,
this win/win compassion,
this transparent noticing of:

Systemic Win/lose trending toward Lose/Lose monocuturalism,
Systemic racism without racist system conscious intention,
Militarized Patriarchalism,
LeftBrain dominant Either/Or deductive-reductive
Linear cause/effect logic,
Analogical purpose over metaphoric meaning,
MonoCapitalTheology
over Integral HealthWealth Win/Win Ecology?

What win/win compassionate ego/ecotherapeutic truth
and restoring peace
and reconciling EarthClimate Justice
might we more critically return to next?

Perhaps I might find our communal life safe enough
to share:

How angry I am
that I cannot hear our cooperatively-owned anger
that both neoliberal and neoconservations
of military-industrialized capitalism,
that worship of winlose and lose/lose violently transparent intent
continues blatantly budgeting to invest in more war,
in more hate-crimes,
in more automatic death sentences,
in more EarthWealth faster
and deeper
extraction of multigenerational resources,
in more corporate short-term blind investors in win/lose landfalls
instead of cooperative owner-workers invested in win/win health.

I am angry
and terrified,
deeply and widely win/lose disappointed
and lose/lose despairing
when I cannot hear
and feel
and see
and know
our mutual terror
and anger
about this Earth
and Earth HealthTribe
and Positive Energy Democracy CRISIS
of Ego v Eco
of Yang v Yin
of Left v Right
of Thought v Feeling
of Secular v Sacred
of West v East
of North v South
of Elite v NonElite
of White v Black
of Either v Or
of Bipolar v Dipolar
of Competitive Arising v Cooperative CoGravitation
of 1 ZeroZone Nomial v Non-0 Zone Bilateral Prime Relationship.

I am angry
and terrified
internal and external lose/lose climates
worship Capitalism
while marketing greed as
Catholic GoodNews of Holy-Elite Predative Communion.

Sacred meals and global EarthHabitat
separating us in our shadowed silos
of nontransparency
and nonvulnerably hiding the bread and wine reserves
violently defended, if necessary,
codependent absence of integrity,
positive communication,
cooperative EarthClimates
of polypathic health,
polyphonic resonance,
polycultural wealth,
universal sacred cooperative employment
co-invested in mutual warm listening
corporate
incorporated
health-capitalized
rich polycultural paths
truth
ways
means
life
passions

Angry and terrified,
courageous and curious.

Investments In Health

Gaia continues running on a Health Platform,
healthy democracy
for wealthy economy
for healthy ecopolitics
for wealthy democratic energy.

The idea of free markets
as those embedded in democratic transactional service
to a local community
Is as old and conservative
as the idea of health
being embedded in a real
organic economic body
and political mind,
actually communicating
and playing nice
with each other.

The primal goal of old school markets,
in good weather times,
was to grow polycultural health,
investments as rich as diverse nutritional needs
of consuming and producing constituents.

So too, in bad climate times,
a depressed and fading market
becoming more monoculturally played out,
exhausted,
was, and is, to survive Lose economic
and Lose environmental EarthTrends,

Often picking up,
emigrating toward more promising lands
and fresh water,
more breathable air,
healthier opportunities for robust
democratic
fair
transparent
mutually vulnerable
win/win healthy-wealth transactions.

Robust markets are rich in co-passionate exchanges,
a flow between non-violent consumers and producers
rooted in healthy cooperative investments
in
and from
and of nutrition-sharing hearts
and minds
and voices,
thoughts with feelings still attached.

The right to free communicating markets
is a right of democratic access
and an ecological positive corollary right
of equal freedom from investing in poison,
imprisoning the competition,
waging war against those who terrify our megalomania
with their own autonomous hubris,
violent lies
hypocrisy
narcissism
egocentrism
anthropocentrism
xenophobia
patriarchalism
homophobia
win/lose evolutionary competitions,
runaway capital hoarding,
moral bankruptcy,
investment in ego-maniacal agendas,
hate,
elitism,
racism,
autonomous media and market control,
feelings of grandiose entitlement,

Jealous and zealous bad faith
sold out as spiritualized
and denatured
disembodied
unmarketable
unfree GoodNews truth.

Meanwhile,
Gaia continues running on a Health Platform,
healthy natural/spiritual democracy
for wealthy secular/sacred economy
for healthy left/right bicameral ecopolitics
for wealthy democratic free-market energy.

LifeStyle Synergy

Part of me longs to reside in
a high functioning
win/win cooperative community
of resilient left hemisphere,
resonant right hemisphere,
polypathic/polyphonic communion.

Part of egoself-care wisdom
and longing
feels drawn toward eremetical asylum
more than gregarious shared sanctuary;
to solitude,
peace
ease
natural sounds and sights,
green new/old deals,
relationships
communications
communions of egalitarian interdependence,
more internally holistic intersections
noticing sacred global beauty
in local experiential truths
mundanely secular.

Yet the best part of my internal ecosystemic awareness
wants both,
wants Earth’s all,
longs for cutting edge win/win communion,
healthiest wealth,
resilient resonance
restoring ego/eco co-investments,
just truth and beautiful mercies,
graced bounty,
synergetic integrity,
robust democracy of healthy hermits.

Too unneedy greedy,
the sound of two co-arising hands
not clapping,
I unrealistically realize
longing in belonging.

Enough to be Dangerous

Do you know the concern?
“S/he knows just enough
about a through z
to be dangerous.”

I am uncomfortably familiar
with this analysis,
a weapon often wielded
from ivory towers
overly influenced by ideology
masquerading as theory
rooted in statistically measured experience,
severed from historical-cultural,
biological-neurological indigenous context.

Even so,
one feeling I am sure of
my own too robust expertise
is Intolerance.

And, now I am discovering
I have chosen to join a community
with a multicultural intention
to embrace,
or at least tolerate,
all souls,
all species,
all living systems
except those deemed too intolerant,
too wounded,
for multicultural health
as a resonant indicator
of economic and political wealth.

We are exclusively intolerant
of intolerance
because we would provide safe sanctuary
to all souls,
especially victims of monoculturing intolerance,
of win/lose economic and political supremacy,
strategy
gamesmanship.

I find a tension here
between unconditional love
and lacking sufficient curiosity
and courage
to discuss shared values
and disvalues
with those too defensive
too hurt
too lost
too conservative
to tolerate intolerably queer me,
to tolerate the alien Other.

This reactionary intolerance
of intolerant prejudice
bigotry
often straight white male supremacy,
feels like further breeding ground
for misunderstanding,
segregation,
mutual divestment business as usual,
more win/lose devolutionary anger and fear,
more potential violence,
hate,
war

More egocentric privilege
rather than universal ecosystemic love power

Actively hoping to cooperatively uncover win/win
polycultural resolutions
resiliently curious
and courageous
when in the presence of win/lose competitions
intolerant of active hope
for restoring peace
by retiring retributively inflicted punishment
shunning
non-communication
anti-communion
for past sins of intolerance.

Don’t Give Up

Don’t give up
on precise strategic resilience
and passionate communitarians
winning here and winning now,
now already won here
with and for those with 20/20 sight
hearing
thought with feeling,

Do give up blaming
only your own internal addicted climate
without also shaming your medicine-pushing society
of left-hemisphere verbal violent domination.

Do give up blaming just your ego
for self-medicating.
Medications, intended for ego- and eco-healing,
can become addictions,
sources of longer-term ego v eco-pathology.

Do give up substances
originally nurturing medication
and now become toxic starving addiction.

Do take up
addiction to water
and organic tea
sipped from ceramic mugs
and cups
and delicate shells
of creatures addicted to saltwater.

Do become addicted
to vigorously cleaning up
shaking out
cleverly planting resonance
carefully harvesting resilience
nurturing
giving and receiving health care
for and from
your eco-politically connected environment
habitat
Earth.

Don’t give up
worshiping Earth.
I’ve never heard of pathological side-effects.
