Touching With Kindness

Some parents and cooperative school teachers
and classroom and bus aides and drivers
are discussing government regulations
restraining transportation providers
from providing therapeutic touch,
because of an over-compensation
for emotional dysfunction behaviors
leading to appallingly irreverent touch.

Toxic touch critical events
predict long-term non-lifegiving,
non-wellbeing consequences
in young
vulnerable,
transparently frustrated learners

Typically,
healthily born with WinWin internal/external co-relational cognitive assumptions,
confluent expectations,
positive neural receptivity is therapeutic
while negative interceptions are toxic,
pathological.

We discuss our unhappiness
about current administrative restraints
on giving healthy therapeutic touch,
but no such caring restrictions apply
to receiving healthy
appropriate
therapeutic touch
from our wounded,
Win/Lose fragile,
fragmented,
cognitive-affective dissonant disarranged
kids.

We seem to be heading in a direction
that would more positively hypothesize,
Despite past risks of exposure to toxic touch,
and apathetic untouch,
we do not want to restrain therapeutic touch
with our arms and hands,
our feet walking and dancing in cooperative solidarity,
stepping out rhythmically, together
with our voices of kindness,
mouths speaking and singing
with ringing patterns of kindness,

Integrity fully-embodied
to support resilient WinWin therapeutic touch relationships.

One of my daughter’s school transportation providers
learned therapeutic massage from a yogi,
Who began their first hands-on learning class
by reassuring those about to receive a student’s touch,
and those about to give their first intentionally focused massage,
that there is only one mistaken choice to avoid,

Massage, any form of verbal or non-verbal touch,
turns from therapeutic default
through toxic abandonment of communication, untouched apathetic restraint,
and also when too aggressive, much more so when actively violent,

Toxins,
nonverbally and/or verbally non-communicating counter-therapies
are Win/Lose neural neglect,
lack of therapeutic mindfulness,
to not touch by therapeutic intent at all,
whether with our WinWin intending hands
or solidarity voices
or any other of Earth’s neural receiving and giving
eco-therapeutic receptors.

So, I remind my daughter
of what the yogi message therapist said,
We only want to touch with kindness,
With our hands
and with our voices,
with our preferably dancing bodies
and our more therapeutically singing mouths
and signing hands
and signaling feet.

Her transport team listens,
laughs,
maybe a touch more relaxed
about possibilities for therapeutic WinWin touching
wounded Win/Lose dis-encultured students
on their often too-neglected journeys
in well-being life-skills
for enhancing healthy wealth resilience.

While us caregiving adults
continue to cooperatively talk without touching
among our comparatively privileged selves.

Story Lessons

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

The apparent insanity of inmates
and prisoners
and addicts, conspiracy theorists and paranoids,
does not prove,
nor necessarily even suggest,
the keepers are not also self-entitled nuts
with unhealthy powers,
authorities,
delegated detached responsibilities
loyal to ratchet race competitions.
Passion Story

When you are crucified, naked, poor
and occupied by Roman yangish powerful voices
and Win/Lose commodity values,
unhealthy fought and sold colonizing authorities,
irresponsible power occupiers,
violators of healthy green peace objectives
applicable to any sanctuary and asylum
with humane organic embodied rituals and behaviors
yet still Win/Lose divine punishing evolution machine minded,
we have been historic asylum invited
to purge messianic homeless egos
on HolonicSpirit’s centering Earth-cross,
rather than remain comparatively imprisoned by traumas
to the disassociating left or right.

Health History Story

A. Earth was born, still, flat, without form and ZeroCentric void.
B. S/he remains newborn and young,
springing organic life
WinWin preferential solidarity with all EarthTribe.
C. S/he still grows mature healthy Heavenly summer sun
over nurturing MotherEarth,
sacred/secular conjoined.
D. S/he co-emerges Northern revolutionary Yang/Yin bicameral,
bilateral healthstream co-arising poly-paths,
-phonics,
-cultures,
-nomial maps,
-meme messages,
-frames of secular/sacred nutrition.

One Flew Into the Communion NestEgg

See “Health History Story” above
The apparent stillborn insanity of original patriarchal residents
need not predict
Yang/Yin co-redeeming caregivers
are not also ego- v eco-logical sanctuary sociopaths
sabotaging our own potential opportunities
for polypathic communion asylums.

Climates of Ecstasy

Any difference between feeling horrified, on one hand,
and disenchanted thoughts, on the other,
seem connected to punishing error and folly in others
unlike our self-righteous ego identities
trained to settle for a Win/Lose anti-communal
anti-trusting world.

Such disparities are even less wise when paranoid
and manic,
a difference in degree
between tragically toxic and merely Win/Lose business as usual,
between outside projection and inside rejection
on our shared global potential enchantment stage.

Then, too,
perhaps any disappointing difference between climatic ecstasy
and everyday enchantments,
in-between wu-wei,
still kindly love our best
and healthiest
and most beautiful,
sensual,
graceful local cooperative presence.

Each ecstatic day may bring some of both
cooperative enchantment
and Left v Right disenchanting competitions
to avoid horror and terror out there,
without doubt,
but also everyday disenchantments
of a complex, sometimes chaotic, domestic darkness.

Addiction to RightWing Prison

A culture steeped in retribution
becomes blind to freedom’s contributions
accessed best through healing restorations,
trust,
virtual stuff
for democracies most resilient.

A society resisting love’s innovative brilliance
comic and jazzy improvising resonance
healing ecosystemic egos dissonant
from aquatic wombs of patient advent,

Adventuring winter’s iceflows of stark stuckness,
as impatient as a tongueless mess
stuck to a frozen metalic national goalpost
just as bells and climate whistles end recess
sound a new tune of chaotic harvest.

National prison lobbies
would lock up tongues and time
arbitrarily confining unconverted inmates lying
behind naked bars of self-isolation
and electric waves of competing institutions,
Walls against multiculturing opportunity,
defensive moats with hungry crocodiles,
black and white defenses against sinful lazy aliens,
and aggressive ballistic lobbyists
addicted to non-conversations
of fear and self-righteous anger,
marketing everyday all-white lies
of capital-hoarding omission.

Collective fears of punishing reparations
for sins against past and future poor regenerations
expands like melting ice-slow crystals
freezing fear escapes so many freedom wronged,
confined by greed against imprisoned selves
against relentlessly orthodox “Other.”

Mutlihappy revolutions of 2020 vision,
listening to prison’s sad social addictions
powering over
to rediscover yin-power with prisoners
together decriminalizing
desecularizing
retenderizing
pardoning humane nature
for past angry RedState patriarchal crimes
against Earth’s cooperative matriarchal freedom
green inspiring Spirit.

All of which causal root to reflective branches came,
then took off again,
to show
One WhiteHouse addiction
to a HillHell of competing prison power
is another’s enchantment
and/or disenchantment.

Senior Luncheon Interview

YouthGroup interviews WiseElder lunch crowd

Notes:

(1) What do you recommend for improving our long-term health prospects?

Question met with quiet amusement.
“Honey,
I’m eighty years old.
My goal is to continue gracefully accepting my future losses.
I’m not sure that helps you.”

(2) Why have you done so well so far?

This is your idea of success?

When I was younger
I thought about healthy vocational goals,
like dancing and singing–

Ways to cooperate BothFun-AndWork solutions
stretching my more typical
EitherWealth-OrTired non-thinking.

It sounds like you found a long-term approach
for growing cooperatively healthy.

More of a daily philosophy
to not kill myself just yet,
than a long-term strategy.

(3) Looking back,
What healthcare choices would you approach differently?

Maybe I would look more toward future goals
to cooperatively thrive
To grow less frightened by past unfortunate competitions
to survive indignities of old age
in these paternalistic States.

(4) Looking forward,
Why might you choose
and not choose
to plan for long-term health for yourself,
for your extended family,
and for Earth?

I would include most plants as part of my extended family.
Although there are some aggressive weeds
to which I prefer to claim no kinship,
Republican or otherwise.

(5) When should we begin such long-term health planning
and development?

I’ve been waiting for eight decades.
Now, or even yesterday,
might already be too late,
even for my adult children.

(6) In what ways,
if any,
have you begun bringing your own adult childhood toward this great transition time?

Are you asking because you are young enough
to think you know the right answer?
Or because you’re old enough
to be curious about depths
and resilience
of early through late health development
for organic persons,
green plants,
and wealthy planet?

I am, I hope, just young and old enough
to be curious about why
those who plan for long-term planet therapies
also seem most likely conscious
of past health goals
competitively missed,
And others cooperatively still attainable.

Competitively missed goals…
Is that like old people without a shared nap-time map
of where we have been?
So feeling lost about tomorrow’s adventurous possibilities
for continuing long-term healthy sanctuary choices…

For me, long-term health planning is mostly about getting through today
and staying awake with you and your YouthGroup cohorts
on this journey toward WiseElder retirement.

I might recommend more healthy cooperation
toward achieving interdependent community wealth
more than RightWing toxic
competitive monoculturing aspirations.

For me,
and for us, I hope,
long-term climate goals
remain mostly about our extending family
on pilgrimate toward WiseElder Earth
as sacred Sanctuary
And secular communities
of cooperative
curiously continuing
health care futures,
More than competitively courageous and loyal Win or Lose
wealth hoarding
against my, and our, inevitable degenerating future.

(6) What happened to,
I’m eighty
with one foot in the grave already?

I reserve the right
to also focus on the other,
more curiously cooperative, foot.

Problems with Number 45

Donald John!

Didn’t your mother teach you?
We do not aim our scissors
at our allies
when they ask us
to share our dangerously cutting weapons.

We also do not run over our best customers.
When we play more nicely with the playground bullies
than with our cooperative allies.
then we soon have no reliable friends
and more empowered predators.
But,
that’s not what they paid us
in passing grades
to do and say
when I went to real property
Predation and Commodification School.
Donald John!

Didn’t your daddy teach you
Choose your positive and resilient Vocational Teachers
as health wealthy wise
as available
at the lowest possible price?

Preaching how to apply:
Win for Planet Earth
Win for all polyculturing Plants
and Win for growing healthy People
polypathic
ego/eco-therapeutic
triple bottom-line
sacred principles of Golden CoOperative Rule?

That doesn’t sound, or even smell, much like him.
Maybe.
We’ll have to see, won’t we?
If so, probably one of his adult ADHD elevator speeches
and my hands were grabbing
for other busyness acquisitions.
Donald John!

Didn’t your parents teach you
This is the moment
more attentive minds
might gratefully ask
why I ask?
What did you ask again?
I’m not sure if I was hearing
an inappropriate ecofeminist question.

Listeners With Power

Messengers
are seldom the most powerful voices
in Earth’s wombed room.

Listeners,
whether intrapersonal individuals
or interpersonal incorporated persons
and both,
listening to the most diverse voices
usually become cooperatively empowered
advocates for Earth’s open rooms
birthing eco/theo-logical Grace
from within God’s re-creating history
as above Gaia’s Paradise
cooperatively heard muses,
colors of vibrant heart music.

Ego sung and Eco-danced
with messengers
solar
and lunar
and in-between
co-arising transubstantiations
gathering revolutionary therapeutic powers
for health of multiculturing happiness

Buzzing messengers,
joy-filled sin-clear angels,
silent but lively superpowers
becoming cooperatively re-invested
in polypathic listening,
then polyphonic speaking,
then polycultural re-listening again
then polynomially re-iterating yet again
then multiculturally listening
to eco-messengers
actively healing ego-listeners
cooperating yet again.
