Following Our Rules

In our Sharing Circles
we have a ground rule
to share a one speaker at a time floor
and unitarian silent listening support

And rules to not verbally share uninvited commentary
suggestions
agreements or disagreements
during, and after,
this formalized Circle.

Speakers are invited to share from experience only,
not from someone else’s story,
experiential and/or theoretical,
parental and/or academic,
personal and/or professional.

This is a Closed Circle
of verbal communications,
a rhetorically autonomous inside job
only silently noting our egalitarian
nonjudgmental
side by sideness
of authority
responsibility
compassion;

Help,
Thanks,
Wow!;

Truth,
Beauty,
Silent Passion…

If we are a composition,
we enter an historic symphony of solo voices
implicitly singing our universality
experiencing time’s nurturing
and severing qualities
and relentlessly insufficient quantity,
except when anyone else is speaking
business as too coldly
or too warmly
usual.

In our Reading Circles
our implicit ground rule culture differs
more in favor of the spontaneous spoken word,
this good news,
extemporaneous,
and bad fake news,
distemper-odious,
gospel we scribe together,

Usually one voice leading
a sustained melodic theme,
sometimes harmonic and splendid,
sometimes dissonant and diminished,
inviting in compassionate responses,
major and minor,
listening for counter-melodies,
for analogies
metaphors
curious oxymorons,
outrageous internal pun fun,
rhymes
and maybe the occasional reason,
held with soft determination
and not hard determinism.

Participants are invited to share
harmonic voices of MeToo
and to gently question why
my own dissonantly deviant choice
traps me in feeling detached,
uncertain,
less certain,
more certain we must be missing
some counter-balancing dirge of risk
and full-circle opportunities
for evolving peaceful revolutions.

We sing in Open Circle rounds
of theory meets experience
greets political philosophy
and primal attachment theory
applications to all relationships
ego logical and unlogical and anti-logical
and dis-passionate,
conscious and unconscious and suppressed consciousness
and more dispassion,
and ecological and ecosystemic
and healthy climate logical
for growing reading circles
into speaking and listening communion rounds
of timeless symphonic conversation,
dia-logos about favored/unflavored mythos.

Cooperative conveners
encourage each other
to speak from felt experience
of belief and disbelief
in some published teacher’s expression of experience
with timeless patience and time-heavy impatience,
of joy and sorrow,
courage and curiosity,
compassion and dispassion,
intimacy and repulsion,
about some subject’s story,

Where it does and does not meet our own time
chosen and not chosen
political and personal
economic and ecological
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
regressive and progressive
inhaled and exhaled
patriarchal and matriarchal
competitive and cooperative
vulnerable and transparent
longing and belonging

New yet old
wealthy when healthy,
democratic when not kleptocratic,
integral when not fragmenting,
unitarian when not too universally closed
to further sacred gospel co-inspirations,
co-passion,
co-presence,

Timeless unity
yet eternal open university,

Secure rounds
yet within freeing surrounds,

Cultural sweet spots
within historic raw plots.

Heartier Stories

To experience transparent intimate opportunities
requires embracing vulnerable openness risks,
co-investing in support of change
within deeply ingrained
win/lose culturally impassioned
either/or barriers

(racism
sexism
capitalism come immediately to risky mind)

preventing compassionate intimacy
from robustly co-arising,
emerging resiliently interdependent freedom.

We can hear
in unspoken space,
containing natural us
re-opening spiritual we,
inviting our most active secular hopes
for calming reactive cultural fears,

We can 20-20 see
all co-operative enlightened integrity
integrally awake,
conscious of win/lose monoculturing clutter
preventing climate salvation theory
and ecological theology
from re-connecting health with wealth
bicamerally with one sacred living EarthMother

Actively hoping to find
win/win intimacy
becoming more explicitly conscious
of what lives in leftbrain dominant space

So we can move through ourselves
inside/outside co-acclimating climates
to find one left/right harmonic Other
interdependently co-present
within Earth’s natural/spiritual nondualistic
musing and often amusing web
of wellness systems,
ego interior transparency
greeting eco exterior vulnerability,
curiosity
meeting courage,
longing
feeding belonging,
colonization
bleeding creolization.

Through Thick and Thin

There are no walls
too thick to complete absorbing hate.

We knit together no fragile win/win webs
of interdependent cooperativity
too thin to resiliently invite
timelessly emergent love.

I have no thoughts
too thick to withstand win/lose business as usual
evolutionary theories

And no feelings too vaporously slender
holy
spiritual
too thin to compassionately invite health
for timelessly emergent climates,
in and out
spirit yinning and nature yanged
holy and yet physically whole
open ecosystemic
just right EarthWomb

Regenerative/degenerative
Right both/and and Left either/or
complexly feeling curious courage
sometimes chaotically expressed
reversed
revisioning
revolutionary
revolving compassionate resonant
resilience

Polypathic ZeroZones
poyphonically harmonic/dissonant
sweet thickly polynomial spots
with raw not not polytheistic unbound plots.

Ego thickness requests,
commands,
sometimes demands
polypathic Wisdom
Where ecosystemic thin dipolar boundaries
invite polycultural Integrity.

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.

I Got the D.T. Blues

When his prime time unmediated antagonist
was only “Fake News CNN”
I hoped he might merely be a narcissist,
cynical about the social health value
of articulating inclusive
transparent
historically accurate
real world truths
all the time
to all Earth’s people.

Now that he has kicked his own Fox News dog,
I would say *itch,
or even nihilistic witch,
but then I too might become known
as an outright truth denialist
over-empowered totalitarian of terror,
verbal global abuser,
where we might have healthier
and wealthier chosen
a cooperatively-owned healing climate
of bicameral compassion.

Hijacked Identity

I awake again with this left-brain thought
that an economic conservative
about balancing his ever expanding budget
looks at my mountainside forest of firs
as a green commodity
for potential exploitation.

Yet when this same conservative
resides in this same fir forest,
now threatened by a large lumbering corporation,
he sees these same trees,
like himself,
as prey
in a win/lose zero-sum value-retention game.

Then I have this right brain passion
that an ego/eco-logically harmonic nondualist,
all about right responsible relationships,
feels and acts with compassion toward these same trees
in this cooperative win/win forest
internally governed by WiseElder firs, regenerative,
from whom we learn
to nutritionally
resiliently,
naturally,
spiritually climax
and recommence together, after loss,
in secular/sacred solidarity
of co-passioning seeds
structured to anticipate four-seasoned wealth givers
and receivers
of Earth’s forested pro-active health care,
robustly optimizing self/other value maintenance.

These reviewed landscapes are not mutually exclusive.
Yet only the last is cooperatively left and right
nondualistically inclusive,
like ethical truth with aesthetic beauty,
compassion spiritually foresting natural integrity.
