Cooperatively Resourcing Democratic Health

I was a highly competitive,
and chronically frustrated,
public and private sector grant writer
before I turned to this prose-poetry research format,
inspired by reading Buckminster Fuller’s universal Left Hemisphere
synergetic with, and never dissonant against,
his Right Hemisphere’s unitarian-holistic flow
wave-linear cooperative wealth
of reiterating polypathic communication patterns,
redundant fractal-fertile rhythms
all emanating from his Left patriarchal prominent language
and his Right cooperative matriarchal co-passioning
Left/Right creolizations,
averse to snarky competitive Left v Right narcissistic colonizations,
predations not unlike those still too monotheistic angry-God zealous writers,
devoid of proper healthy-wealth,
NonZero-Zone compassion,
generosity,
good faith in Earth WinWin historic centrism.

I thought we would do better in our CapitalCity investment region,
and in Connecticut,
and in our New England bioregion,
and in North American continental constitutions,
and in the Western-RightHand dominant hemisphere,
and in any Eastern-LeftRecessive interdependent integrity hemispheres,
and on Whole Open System Earth,
and throughout this ZeroZone synergetically positive co-relational
bilateral
outsideYang/insideYin
health-wealth resourcing enterprise,

Breathing precessively in
to breathe recessively out again,
thick deductive ego-receiving strength
to feel inductively co-passioning
eco-habitat giving effluently thin
Zero ZenZone outflow

Of cooperative planned,
balance designed,
integrity implemented,
synergetically managed,
systemically evaluated,
and organically re-invested
with WinWin compassioning therapeutic intent
each grateful breath wave-linear cycle,
each compassioning year
in a nonsectarian celebration
of what we have learned together
about how to cooperatively improve
our resilient health programs

Our co-passionate investments
for next breath’s
next year’s healthy-wealth optimization;

Which green inside and outside client health outcomes
we will expansively grow
by watering and feeding most
where we are WinWin weak but improving,
by maintaining where already WinWin strong
and Yang/Yin steady healthflow trending,
and divesting of where we remain WinLose stuck
drifting off toward terrifying LoseLose
climate and monocultural pathologies.

So, you might well imagine
I was frustrated by sitting alone in front of my monitor and keyboard,
writing autonomous ego-centered and in-corporate-centric competitions,
while wanting to play a much more WinWin inclusively generous game
not in WinLose economic assumptions of ZeroSum competitions
ecological and political and social-psychologically ambiguous
and dissonantly disempowering
unfocused health proposal-writing chaotic messes
felt behaviorally and unfaithfully unsettling lack of good faith
in both cognitive-Left and emotionally cooperative-Right integrity,

As if I lived on an interdependent WinWin Earth outside evinced,
while communing with cooperative flocks of birds
and our strong-rooted tree habitats
and nutritious green self-healthing cooperative forests,
while all my inside grant requesting
and giving ZeroSum winning or losing voices
would not just stop
for one ZeroZone silent moment
to peacefully smell our cooperatively compassionate organic coffee
and herbal tea
and whole grain muffins
baked in an open regenerative fire circle
of Earth’s vast timeless
trans-historic WinWin bright
night
light of integral systemic cooperativity.

Safe Home

SafeHome is not so much a real place
as a destiny longed for
on our lifetime journey toward dynamic well-being,
too healthily robust to fear growing homeless and friendless.

SafeHome is not an unchanging Paradise,
statically without resonantly changing,
slow-turning nutritious seasons,
ups and downs,
ins and outs.

Such conservative stability, uniformity
could never be my red-blooded idea
of brilliantly resilient Heaven.

So, when Earth’s climate pressures,
internally and externally competing
to my point of ego-aggression,
notice chronic stress climbing up my back
and shoulders,
brain stem and frontal cortex
concerned about politically left and personally unself-righteous depression,

When cynicism about never ever loving enough WinWin RealTimes
RealTalk
Real cooperative integrity walks
into co-passioning solidarity,

Then my SafeHome destined child and parent voices
prefer WinWin economic ecological sanctuary
removed from WinLose habitual habitats,
dissonant stuckness
never ever feeling like healthy SafeHome resilience.

Homes resonantly sustained
First, by dynamic cooperative resonance
with all EarthTribes
occupying cooperative health vocational preoccupations

And, Second,
actively seeking sanctuaries cooperatively facilitating,
feeding,
watering,
fueling ongoing multicultural nutritional development

HealthyWealth SafeHomes
plant and harvest socially compassionate,
interdependent health-resonant relationships,
polyculturally resilient,
spiritually and naturally polypathic, nonsectarian,
democratically positive energetic, dynamic systems
forming SafeWombed
flow-functions,
universal inside survivor memories
of cooperative sanctuary, originally outside warm wombs

From SafeWombs
emerge WinWin infants, then young and free children
who become WinWin parents and teachers and gratitude preachers,
eco-listeners and ego-speakers
longing for compassionately cooperative SafeHome returns,
pilgrimages toward universal solidarity,
unitarian SafeHome interdependence.

A long strong ZeroZone SafeHome
for robust reunification
within EarthTribe graced communions, healthy
green cooperatives,
permaculturally wealthy
deep learning lifetimes
for green STEAM educational placements,
safe ZeroBalancing carbon-based residencies
in WinWin learning civilizations.

Muse of BlackHistory

Music ministry
as inviting to blues and jazz,
embracing soulful gospel
as black and brown and white multiculturally intended,
at least on MLKing SabbathDream Days,
feels not yet enough un-privileged,
increasingly side-tracked
from cooperative GreenEarth dreams reborn,
up-bearing
paid-forward into what more recent cultically degenerates
into an expanding historical commodified competition
in ego-personality marketing and idolizing worship.

Authentic WinWin non-violent singing messiahs
do not want to be WinLose competitive-ego worshiped,
misunderstood,
too easily dismissed as saints,
for the courage of their patience
with absence of cooperative interdependent resilient dreams
within solidarity of communion,
not fragmentation of originally nonsectarian
non-violent communication,
with our natural-rhythmed vibrating voices
and our bilateral hands and feet.

MLK’s
and Gandhi’s
and perhaps Jesus of Nazareth’s
and LaoTse’s
and Buddha’s
and Gaia’s music and resistance dance
and storytelling muses of music history
exalt our cooperative harmonies of wisdom,
non-violent everyday enchanting eco-villages and green meadows
investing in cooperatively self/other-owned economies,
compassionate interelationships of soulful co-passions,
good-news rhythms,
harmonic patterns of cooperatively-held historic resonant redemption
for depressed
and suppressed
and oppressed,
ego personality worshipers,
seriously unimpressed power-divas,
and struggling family peace-warriors
against Win/Lose ego-mortality

With sufficient courage to speak our cooperatively-owned
and managed eco-dreams
and curiosity enough to cooperatively explore
our white-privileged anthems
of pietistic fake-prophetic sufficiency of almost uniting,
not quite universal, EarthTribe peace, blind
to further noticing current lapses
in non-violent span-historical
pan-cultural communication,
cooperative investment,
compassionate resilience
positive democracy energetic resonance

Sung,
spoken,
and non-verbally RightBrain dreamed
and WinWin Left/Right framed
for good-faith justice climates
heading back oppressive punishing crusade histories
of hating interdependent communion economies,
polyculturally nutritious sufficiency for all EarthTribe,
more powerfully resilient
than mere Win/Lose business as usual ego-marketing commerce,
mono-paternalistically distorted,
ecoYin-unbalanced
egoYang-privileged, so not healthy democratic,
growing ego-conservative marketing status, so not ecologically resonant,
not green sanctuary robust

Regardless of how large or small
that Zero ZenZone musing sanctuary
may non-violently
non-fragmentedly
non-reductively
embrace all souls
as we interdependently co-arise
great historic muses of multiculturing reality,
health of integrity,
wealth of solidarity,
cooperatively responsible resilience.

Sustainable Sanctuaries

I’m in the process of joining a Unitarian Universalist Green Sanctuary
communion of All Souls,
in Connecticut.

This is not my first time joining a new intentional good-faith community,
but it is the first time I have signed a Membership Book
of historical,
spiritual,
natural cooperatively intentioned community
which goes back only to 1911.
Some UU sign-up and -in Books
began, and have been more and less healthily sustained,
since the 1600s.

This AllSouls, in New London,
is more of a contemporary Souls membership history story,
mostly of cooperation,
or we could not still exist,
but probably more than sufficient competitions as well.

At least two natural-spiritual multicultural health formation experiences strongly influence how I approach the “Welcome New Member” folder,
placed in my hand by the Membership Committee Chair.

Our seven UU Communion Principles show up inside this folder
on a yellow-green sheet,
mapping a two-pillared alpha through omega arch;
a health construction bridge
between All Souls past and present;
Not a sectarian wall of dogmatic who is and was enlightened
and who is and was yet to be effectively reborn.

My Taoist Yang/Yin bilateral philosophy
intersects with training/experience with Permaculture Design
of natural exteriors
and spiritual interior subclimate development
for therapeutic and regenerative
Zero ZenZone polycultural health robust reformation.

This nature-spirit pancultural view
of Earth and Her/His non-sectarian communal parts
influences how I read through these transubstantiating communal Principles.

The first and last, the alphaYang/omegaYin, two pillars
speak to what Taoist Permaculture Design has ego/eco-systemically unveiled
inside me,
then outside me:

The inherent nutritional worthiness
and natural/spiritual co-arising dignity
of every person,
living with and for cooperatively owned and self-managing plants,
on organic planet Earth
Respect interdependent webs of nutrition, nurturing
subsystems of all changing climates
of which each ego-system, inside
and each eco-system, outside
is a secular/sacred pan-sectarian
networking
holonic
communal
communitarian sanctuary
preferably bilaterally, even multilaterally, non-violent
speaking and listening,
noticing and caring,
not neglecting and abusing,
polypathic co-relational
co-passioning part.

In the epicenter of the remaining five over-arching Principles
about our shared health-seasoned journey
into how we agree to cooperatively grow
as one organic communal to-gathered sanctuary,
The 4-Season Dimension speaks out, holds tightly, for

Freedom, because cooperatively paid forward and backward through multigenerations,
economically
and politically
and psychologically
and ecologically redeeming health
wealth
virtuous cooperative circles
norms, etc
through co-responsible cooperative research
for healthy yang truth
meeting, and never excluding,
wealthy yinternal nutritionally effluent meaning,
robustly transformative,
resiliently co-relational,
resonantly compassioning.

The Second Principle
births spring thaws of EarthJustice,
nutritional equity,
compassionate sanctuaried integrity
in humane/divine
natural/spiritual co-arising newborn, reborn relations
sprouting summer’s fully maturing compassions.

The Third sun-drenched Principle
celebrates transparently enlightening acceptance
and vulnerably naked encouragement
to naturally/spiritually
outside/inside mature,
climax polycultural outcomes,
polyphonic inside singing outside dance,
polypathic spatial Here breathed yangly in
as temporal Now exhaled affluently yin out
in…

Preparing for our future Fifth Principle:
Bicameral harvesting right and left
of conscientious democratic mutually past/future trusting seeds
winnowed
and carefully treasured
in active hope
for yet another season
of EarthSanctuary renewal.

And then, holistically systemic Yin
as the last Sixth Principle
winterish say:
Prophesying Advent of global non-violent communion
over-arching FourSeason PermaCultural Goals
of healthy EarthGreen Sanctuary, warming spring of
peace-drenched communication,
radically lavish inside liberty of universal love,
celebrating unitarian EarthJustice restored
with
and by
and for
and of all cooperatively-owned
interdependent webs
networks
bridges
gardens
holistic organic farms,
sanctuaries producing and consuming and reproducing
WinWin polypathic Souls
of which each healthy ego
is an essential
nutritional
nurtured/natured
whole yin/yang speaking
singing
dancing
graceful EarthJustice
GreenSanctuary part.

It’s a lot to take in
before moving on to the GoldenRule Cooperative Stewardship sheet,
all about therapeutically treating
and sustaining
robustly resilient
resonant
root systems.

Song of Sorrow

“There is a sorrow on the air
I taste
but cannot name.”
Nickole Brown

We are a conspiring sour in the air,
a wonder through perspiring space and time,
I taste
but cannot name
and fear to swallow.

We work and flirt with homelessness
for extended family Earthlings,
street people
nestless birds
forestless bears
airless eagles
sightless patriots.

My health goal is not,
as is, perhaps, your wealth homing instinct,
to end homelessness
but to re-begin paradise,
to renew robustly loving global nests
breasts
breaths
deaths for natural spiritual causes.

Which invites cooperating ownership of sour smells
supporting personal and political authority
to raise responsible robust future history
real-time regenerators
playing WinWin eco/theological games

Cooperatively loving challenged smells of climate opportunity
and awesome weathered sights
of future Earthless risk
of competing homelessness
where cooperative governors dwell
within social sanctuary development
we cannot name
so fear to swallow.

View from a Sanctuary

He retired to his sanctuary
on the Eastern shore of the Thames River
three years ago,
an often frustrated permaculture organizer
for building cooperative social health
by creatively communicating climate wealth
growing ZeroZone positive multicultural tao-energy.

This proves reclusively frustrating
in large part because non-taoist neighbors and family
are unfamiliar with his iconic language
and green cooperative health faith
in democratic natural/spiritual
absence of violent communication
and perfect vacuum of conspiracy theory prejudice.

His RightBrain eco-centrism
LeftBrain deductive/inductive bicameral integrity search,
His bilateral historic future synergy,
trilateral energy dynamics,
quad-lateral nutrition cycles
playing virtuous WinWin health games
more than vicious WinLose capitalistic
dualistic WinLose ZeroSum theories
growing internal spirit against external nature,
personal against political,
ego against eco-therapeutic competitions
which could become cooperative constituents
with secular/sacred longings for love
as red sky morning warnings
greet coral sky dusk.

Love growing boisterously loud
contagious
courageous
curious grace
meeting hearts this day bilateral
greeting hearts this night bicameral
dreaming meeting hearts tomorrow multilateral
beating integrity hearts bicameral
this tomorrow’s integral night
absorbing ultra-violet sight.

His new home lies on the Thames River
flowing between Norwich,
former blue heron sanctuary
giving life and feeding Old Green EarthTribes
watering downriver to reforest New London’s community gardens,
cooperative artisans,
green motherland trusters,
Black ProLives Matter Allies,
United MultiCultural Green Ethicists,
coastal bands,
liturgical dancers,
fire-circle story-tellers and peace activists,
restorative EarthJustice advocates.

He has been humbled by crippling Norwich need
for more nutritious green blue heron spaces
and street entertainers
gardeners repurposing public spaces
dancing nutritional arts
and ecovillage well-schooled sciences

And has experienced rebirth
in New London green parties
hosting organic legions of multicultural youth leaders
struggling with recreating non-violent communications
supporting a cooperative casino potlatch economy
re-investing in Thames River CoOperative Enterprises.

This WiseElder hears his River flowing land-trust neighbor
refer to herself
in ultra-violet starlit language
transporting Old Green EarthTribe’s Main Street
for historically cooperative constitutions
incorporating permaculturing development
of polycultural songs
sung by polypathic tidal waters
competing up and cooperating down

Reflecting crystal star light
throughout effluent non-violent nights
remembering
reweaving
dancing sunlight therapeutic days
when love beats love,
beauty meets beauty,
trust invites trust,
faith predicts faith,
hope omits fear.

This Green EarthTribe River feels familiar
growing up in an extended farm family
still pushing and pulling out WiseElders
exploring cooperative ecopolitical climates
restoring peaceful organic forests
tree-lined nutritional MainStreet Rivers
surrounded by surprisingly self-managed meadows,
healthy ego ecosystems
inhabited by wealthy cooperative EarthTribe memories
transubstantiating constitutional healthy non-violent communions
indigenous with colonial
wildly democratic and yet conservatively explosive

Evolution glowing in a revolutionary erection.

Avoiding the Boogy Man

A strong cooperative offense
is our most competitive defense.

Avoiding RightRed fascism
totalitarianism
terrorism, dark secular raptures and/or terrified jihad,
fundamental Nature is sinful, negative yin repressed,
while Spirit is health invested love, positive yang,

bilateral co-temporal,
evenly humored humanistic divinalism.

By choosing divining higher
and humanely deeper

in 4D bilateral Left/Right positive energy
democratic-trusting frame
dynamically parallel bicamerality
with resilient fractal string-structures of humane DNA
and divine RNA theological Origin
and 4-ecological ZeroZone Seasons
with 4-theological nurturing Reasons
for romantic infatuation
with Eastern outside red dawns

and swimming
and crawling eco-pilgrims

Liberally green
and conservational red night lovers,

avoiding tomorrow’s nationalistic
ego-theistic
utterly narcissistic
BoogyMan.
