Life’s Ups and Downs

and communities,
hopefully becoming like extending families,
and that would make them some form of faith communities,
relying exclusively on top-down authorities
to empower today
and tomorrow’s cooperative faithfulness
to ourselves
to each other
to Earth
to the Universe, perhaps,
are also families and communities
bottom-up maturing co-empathic responsibilities
to learn nutritional elements
and synergetic trends we democratically trust
and multiculturally feel
for their optimizing wealth of health potential.

And, those other darker
not clearly articulating our Golden Ruling DNA-RNA dialectal heritage,
and those clearly pathologically distrusted
as anathema and terror’s immunities from growing healthy egos
and evolving nutritiously faithful communities
and revolving Earth’s regenerative spiral revolving trends,
bilaterally co-arising
ego/eco consciousness of Earth
as sacramental cooperative fulfillment
further seeking positive faithful WWW promise,
Win self-economics
Win Other ecologics
Win Earth ecosystemic
sacramental spacetime
0-sum co-investing moments.

What cooperative fulfilling authority goes down
equivalently invites and resonates with
co-empathic promising responsibilities
emerging from below shared day dreams,
not nightmares,
rising synergetically up.

Climates of health recycling down
so landscapes of wealthy global democracy
rise revolutionary
and sacramentally
and cooperatively
faithfully up.

Earth’s changing from above climate
seeps and sweeps up and down
into each community’s communicating climates
seeping down and sweeping up
ectosymbiotic and endosymbiotic
creolizing and transubstantiating
into and around
each individual’s internal climates
of sacramentally faithful experience
and desecrating despair, dismay, competing dissonances,
and, so, thereby,
vice versa,
preferably more actively cooperative WinWin
than reactively competitive WinLose
capitalistic and patriarchal
over-extended gamesmanship.

as sacramental communities
cooperate best both sweeping up
and seeping down together
of and for tomorrow’s greatest faithfulness,
and minimal monoculturing
climates of despair.


Invitation to an Unmalling

What if,
instead of inviting people to the local mall
to further accelerate a fight,
we invite each other to join us
in the middle of the central-most concourse,
for a jazz improvisation of tai chi and yoga movements,
to breathe peace in and justice out together,
to grow in reflective mindfulness together,
to cooperatively appreciate each other’s participation
in the rhythms and patterns we discover
by moving and beating and breathing our hearts together
communicating belonging together
in this unmarketable community.

What if
we invited people to dance together
and side by side,
an impromptu self-invitation
to embody together at the mall
how we belong together
rather than flying apart?


Peppa Pig’s Dilemma

Peppa Pig started a Secret Club revolution.

When Poppa Pig asked her what she was up to,
she violated her Secret rule
because she could have no politically fun Club
if her Secret began and ended only within.

Poppa Pig resonantly responded
as did her entire community of family
and their extended outward friends,
they had each secretly longed to belong
within some Secret Club
for self-and-other empowering recreation
just among their Secret ruling selves.

Peppa’s dilemma, however,
after everyone knew her Secret admission word,
was in what sense could they sustain their Secret Club
with only this one, now shared, Secret
as accessible as youtube.

Yet, forced to choose priorities,
she, as Yin is multiculturally inclined to flow,
instinctively saw and knew
a universally inclusive Club
with one shared integrative Secret love
was as abundantly happy belonging
as a hot pig jumping in cool mud puddles
with her not-so-secret piggy Club.


Multicultural Political Health Design

I have had a highly redundant,
one might even choose polypathic,
graduate studies experience
spanning my adult life to date.

This began with a semester of Philosophy.
Just enough to learn I wanted something more experiential,
a more communitarian environment of Applied Metaphysics, perhaps.

So then I began, and soon completed, studies for the Master of Divinity degree,
which has an arcane ring to it,
but basically the title implies just the opposite of what degree candidates most hope for,
to be Mastered by Divine Love,
to economically and politically operate as an icon of all-inclusive ecological love.

Those receiving the M.Div.
hoped to apply their ecopolitical science of empathic trust,
our mutual Basic Attendance,
to life as liturgical theology
or at least teleologically benign song and dance;
to be the love today we proclaim for tomorrow,
rooted in our humane-divine nondual nature-spirit compost
of ecopolitical peace-integrity with justice-truth becoming;
The Ways of Divinity,
co-mastering together.

when I landed in a rural Colorado parish,
the beat-down aging poor mutually-marginalizing Mexican and Anglo faith community
invited me to reconsider further investment in administering sacraments
disconnected from ecopolitically healthy outcomes of empathic trust.
To continue as individuals,
and as a multiculturally rich community
of mutually holonic,
trusting co-empathic faith,
we needed more of a Total Makeover,
a gut rehab,
an economic design to fuel our continuing collective political incarnation
into this Beloved Therapeutic EcoPolitical Community
we each long to belong within,
as integrity without.

Responding to apparent hope for stronger organizing
and planning
and budgeting
and ecopolitical design and implementation,
and evaluation and socioeconomic change skills,
I accepted an invitation into a double Master of Public Administration and Community [Economic] Development degree program,
primarily taught by PhDs in Political Science;
my first among too many loves as an undergraduate at Michigan.

Here I learned, once again, that politically correct administration of empathic trusting,
sometimes mistrusting,
and even actively distrusting totalitarian political relationships
historically and culturally thrive
when “follow economic wealth”
also means “responsibly invite multicultural political as personal health”
internally economic as externally political,
nondual internal-external co-arising ecological landscapes of nutrition.

Humane ecopolitical landscapes are ruled by active hope
and cooperative potential within
as divinely landscaped multicultural ecology without,
polypathic faith in love’s synergetic trust
and discovery
and curious regenerativity of enlightening imagination.

The U.S. Declaration of interdependent Independence and Constitution were born of Enlightenment CoOperative EcoPolitics.

Applied ecopolitical science looked a great deal like applied theology,
or at least teleology, healthy purpose, therapeutic cultural meaning.
Democracy develops fragrant discernment through co-empathic multicultural trust,
moving toward inclusive resonant resolutions of complexly interdependent ecopolitical issues,
social investments and historical-cultural divestments,
intending improved climate health
and less climates of pathology,
whether too hyperactively warm
or too near to flat-line fading into freezing despair.

My issues with effectively developing ecopolitical health,
by suppressing dis-ecological pathologies,
past failures of achieving a truly multiculturally abundant history of sustainable healthy climates,
soon led to confusion about a great cultural divide
between two vocational labels:
1. Political Scientist, and
2. Permacultural Designer.

This great cultural divide appeared front and center
more recently when I became certified as a Permaculture Designer.
It helped me to look more carefully at the functional intent of “political”
as compared to “permacultural” outcome goals and use-of-power objectives.
As I thought more about how our normal day-to-day scientific investment in learning about power includes learning primal differences between multicultural designs
and monocultural monopolies of totalitarian mistrust leaning toward distrust chaos,
then polypathic confluence of design and pattern correlations emerge as the compost,
the food,
the fodder of our ecological as ecopolitical learning enterprise.

“Permaculture” was chosen to distinguish perennially designed
and democratically self-governing landscapes
from more traditional annual economies of “Agriculture” business,
with more of a replant, spray, and harvest of chemically treated quasi-edibles,
nutritionally malignant regarding fertile health of Earth’s soil,
leading to well-established suboptimal health-trends of ecopolitical Business As Usual.

Permaculture designs are for and on and about and composed of information rooted in past positive polyculturally balanced community landscape outcomes.
These polyculturing ecopolitical landscapes began as maps of nurturing health plans for exteriors only,
like gardens and farms and river banks.
But, this organic economic and political view of power-with ecological balancing climates
has moved from exterior to increasingly interior ecopolitical health landscapes,
like bicameral full-octave nature-spirit nondual deep learning healthy multicultural mindbody landscapes, dialogues, stories, evolutions.

A political power relationship of healthy nutritional economic/ecologic design
pulls together the implied normativity of Political Sciences comparing unhealthy totalitarian powers producing outcomes of mayhem and terror
to democracies intended to nurture co-empathic cooperative trust.
If designers using permacultural ecopolitical principles and procedures for healthier polycultural climates,
then we are also scientists exploring transactional-relational nutrient-power principles
and investment/divestment procedures for sustaining multicultural health designs and sustaining power-with development,
co-investment in planning,
and harvesting health outcomes rooted in (0)-sum Earth-centric climates
of polypathic ecopolitical health.

Permaculture Design Certification more or less brings me back full circle,
where graceful articulation of applied metaphysics
invites active,
relentless pursuit of ecopolitical deep learning
mutually cooperative faith communities
within bicameral heart and lungs and brain and guts and limbs and genetic roots
as cooperative Beloved Communities incarnating together without.

People of radically cooperative faith,
profound empathic ecopolitical trust,
ask what and whom you believe WITH,
while those of a more fundamentalist-exclusive faith,
including active mistrusts of alien faith systems as more or less idolatrous,
ask what and whom you believe IN.

If you believe in evolutionary cosmological processes
that you do not believe also believe in you,
cooperatively together,
then you are less likely to achieve healthy nutritional ecopolitically sustainable outcomes,
while you are waiting for SomeOne Other
to grace you with His Transcendent truth-beauty presence.

If you believe with processes of ecosystemic health,
then you have joined the evolutionary permacultural partisans of healthy regenesis,
wherein lies all evidence of creation,
rather than nihilistic monocultural nothing.
Then again, you might conceivably believe in both,
which is a highly polypathic wu wei pilgrimage–
a razor’s edge teleology of enculturing history.


Politically Correct Bodies with Economically Healthy Minds

What are your values and disvalues of and for power?

What are the political powers and weaknesses,
of economic value?
What is not for sale?
What is available, but only without commodification,
without any form of quantitative price paid in return?

Are these questions changed, yet equivalent,
in the following?

Are economic values and loss of nutritional values
intrinsic to powers of cooperative and competing health relationships?
to political power understood as broadly as possible to effect
or decrease
or sustainable stasis in depth of health-flow v wealth-hold
political power as power of evolving nurturing-time itself?

What are the physical body’s powers
and lack of powers
to regenerate the mind’s economic comprehension
of metaphysical health-merit?

Are economic development/unraveling theories any more or less than
dualistic abstractions drawn from cooperative/competitive political health experience,
evolving ecological systems,
structures of logical regenesis,
and suboptimal derivative ecosystems of less sustainability,
without (0)-sum loss of interest,
re-generativity of perpetually emergent organic rights,
mutually-shared accountabilities
of beloved EcoPolitical Communities (M. L. King)
heading toward sustainable polycutural climaxes (Permaculture Design),
culminating in some deep sacred dualdark cosmological
BlackNegEntropicDenseMatter (0)Mega Consilience Point (Teilhard de Chardin with some Edward O Wilson),
in which our economic map is at last bicamerally seen
and balanced
and proportioned
and folded in as out (Buckminster Fuller)
as our holonically ideal politically cooperative EarthTribe Territory.

Are implicating forms of ecopoliticaly shaped language (David Bohm)
telling our timeless creation story,
holonic carved laser knives
for and from slicing and dicing political powers
evolved from and for nutritional redevelopment?

Our economic power abundance,
and starving absence of sufficiency,
economic map may depict a sad, yet hopeful, political territory.
Earth’s geobiological past,
and therefore future health development process
toward empathic trust growth trends
projecting post-climatic health trends
of a highly diastatic-synergetic biosystem,
learning to co-mentor healthy investments of time and money,
and how to correct unhealthy investments in ego-,
and anthro-centric pathologies
by reversing current competing LeftBrain dominant enculturation trends,
shifting to an ecopolitical Tipping Point,
Left-Right balance of nutritional power values.

What are economic values
other than nutritional merits of and for healthy cooperative powers?


In PermaCulture We Trust

rooted in economic capacity and political experience
within a co-empathic nutritional environment;
like before you came out of Mom.

rooted in deep listening, learning, and, giving-and-taking,
absorbing and investing
consuming and producing,
competing and cooperating
double-negatives as positive double-bind dipolar
regenerating dissonant complexity
with decompositional maturity,
empathic ripeness of seasonal belief-feeling balance of time,
permacultural development
toward increasing understanding,
comprehension of stronger integrity and resilience within learning ourselves
and others,
more inclusively rich nutritional political relationships,
economic transactions of true health as beauty-wealth values.

CoEmpathic Communication,
enthymematically positive=notnot dialectical dipolar
0-sum EgoAbsence
rooted in Basic EmpathicTrust-Attendance,
where Empathy flows from positive feeling
as Trust functions following positive belief,
and viceversa

Lack of Communication,
rooted in cognitive-affective dissonance
between LeftTrust and RightEmpathic temporal-neural
dipolar co-confusing noisy bipolarity
with pathological trends toward negative climatic-critical events,
sometimes rhetorical,
sometimes operatic,
sometimes terror,
always mutual-immunity

ReGenerative Systems Design and Development,
bilaterally rooted in
mutual yin-concave bilateral subsidiary stricture
with yang-convex fractal-holonic
polypathic complementary relational structures.

Recognizing these binomial roots toward healthy regenerativity,
permaculturally labeled as Yang with Yin balance of Tao as 4D SpaceTime,
we deep-learn through communication system development.

when YinSquared = c-squared = Prime Eulerian metric regenerate (0)-soul function e-squared,
YinPrime Bilateral Commons DeCompositional Relationship

We need healthy dipolar balance
to expand our understanding of potential alliances
within currently stressed political
and economic health systems,
to improve Universal Subsidiarity/Complementarity Balance,
a global citizenry,
mutually respectful
appropriately voting with our bodies of lives past, present, and future hope
and/or dying together
as Earth’s former CoOperatively Evolving Tribes.

In nutrient-value economies,

responsibility facing self-empathy and trust refining/redefining authorities.

Mutually held Rights of Earth
and all Her Sacred Tribes,
cannot be bought,
deposited for later self-aggrandizement.
so it would be
in my PermaCultural Beloved Community.

The moral of my story
to value what and who I am,
as part of this co-evolving ecoconscious evolution
through this incarnation
within EcoNesting EarthRights CoOperative Tribe,
to incubate my ecosystemically integrative communicating niche,
to repurpose each day and relationship
within each Earth-eternal cycle of night and days in co-empathic gratitude
for whom I, as holonic identity within We,
have become so far together.

And, at least as importantly,
for further ecological optimization of life-sustaining health,
also value what I and We are not yet together,
ways we have misplaced our (0)-sum total
true political belief-faith
and beautiful economic co-invested trust
in mindbody nutritional co-empathic feeling.


Trinitarian Voices

Father’s Voice

Your ungainly question,
What is the meaning of Life?
reminds of another,
What is purpose to Beauty?
which reminds of,
What is meaning and purpose for Grace?
and Karma?

Not ugly, empty, meaningless death, perhaps?

Life, like beauty, evolves appositional responses
of meaning, outlined, co-defined by negative losses and suffering
and absence of healthy purpose,
staying away from pathologies and toxins
and uglies and means and greeds and envies
and Ego dominance;

Life, like beauty,
evolves toward more nutritionally balanced, blended,
proportional symmetry, equi-valency,
full-color cultures,
more rainbow-octavish dancing in circles health
choices found within
your deep ecology of internal as external beauty
as responsible and wholesome cooperative truths,
all merging toward our universally golden hypothesis
that EarthTribe is in this messy beautiful evolution of regenerativity
profoundly and radically and ubiquitously and co-arisingly together,
as we are each not hypnotically immersed within noisy stagnant ugly competing Ego
monopoly games
losing life’s healthy integrative, assimilative
beautiful beloved potential.

Son’s Response

Seeking purposive meaning for life and beauty and love
feels like trying to gratefully worship a transcendent God
outside myself,
outside my responsibilities,
outside my political and economic authority,
outside my friends and enemies,
outside Earth and all Earth’s bio- and ecosystems.

Yet, all I can know of this outsideness
is absence, loss, death, dismay, abandonment, neglect, violence
competing among themselves for loudest voice
where God is not incarnate,
not omnipotent,
not omnipresent,
not life,
not beauty,
not love.

If God is not my epicenter of healthy active incarnating love,
seeding and weeding and watering and nourishing
and polyculturally-multiculturally harvesting
abundant communication and community and personal
and political and economic cooperative health,
responsible and authoritative ecotherapeutic evolution
of Self as Other
interdependent with Earth’s ecological co-mentoring,
bodhisattva occupier vocational opportunities
responding true within Earth’s radically profound Beauty
as Love
Basic Attendance
mindful ecoconsciousness,
when all feels and smells and tastes and walks well,
then I, dear Faither, have become a practicing atheist.

And, that could work out just fine,
so long as I avoid ego-
and anthrocentric excesses;
yet Love Fertilization
seems so much easier and effective
than Anger Management.

Spirit-Nature Resonance

Perhaps a profound difference
between human nature and Earth’s other forms and dialects
merges our bilateral capacities to choose response
to longing and belonging
with their opposite intentions.

Belonging inspires antipathies of not belonging,
mutual immunities recognized and assimilated,
while longing inspires reiteratively resonant co-longing to help,
and sometimes play with each other.

Because we have opportunities to choose mutual belonging,
this Basic Attendance assimilation
of Earth’s incarnate longing for life and beauty and truth
becomes incumbent ecoconsciousness
within our more cooperative political and economically interdependent,
co-evolving futures.
