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.

Dear Ivy

Dear Ivy,

I am sorry we did not receive even just a moment to say goodbye
and thank you to each other
for all those school bus rides we took together,
you in your harness,
and me in my wonder
about what’s coming next
from your talking head
to mine.

It is time for me to move on
to another student,
but I am happy to leave you in Miss Josie’s care.

I know she will enjoy your time
invested in each other,

Listening and taking turns speaking kindly with each other,
Singing and maybe even a little dancing together,
reading and drawing as light and bumps allow.

Maybe you can teach each other
some new KnockKnock jokes.

KnockKnock.
Who’s there?
Sandi.
Sandy who?
Sandy sandwiches
are not good for you.

KnockKnock.
Who’s there?
Josie.
Josie who?
Jo see for yourself,
Open the door!

I am grateful to have so many silly and lovely memories
of you
to take with me.

And, the greatest farewell gift you could give me
is your reassurance
that these same warm and happy memories
of us
are what you will carry with you
throughout your great adventurous journey
into well-being.

Warmly yours,

Sandi

Sandi who?
Sandy snacks
are not so good for you.

Note:

My behaviorally disordered ADHD and fetal alcoholic daughter, with abandonment issues and deep-seeded food anxiety issues, suddenly lost her long-standing school bus aide, probably to compassion burn-out.  Ivy can be a profound motivator of impatience in those around her, even with deep and widely developed caregiving and receiving skills. This is the farewell that I think Ivy would have found more therapeutic than the isolating complexities of disappearance without explanation or expressed gratitude for what did co-relationally work for so long.

To be clear, not saying goodbye was an administrative decision from above; not what Ivy’s aide wanted for herself or for Ivy.

Cooperative Communion

When we communicate aggressively,
cynically narcissistic
about Earth’s WinWin historical healthy wealth, ongoing
slow-grown into our great grandchildren’s regenerative future,

We abandon globally universal passions
for mutual care-giving and receiving
ego and eco-therapeutic cooperative missions,

We do not intend for the ego-messenger
to be ignored,
emotion un-intelligently shot down
along with our LeftBrain too dominant
unilateral,
sometimes too aggressively monocultural
privileged messages.

We’re often mis-communicating mortally-wounded humans,
whose ancestors have bicamerally reproduced resilient regenerations
more than cognitively affective degenerative wounds.

Instead, intending to communicate through communion gestalts
despite flawed WinLose ego-messengers
still longing to make enthymematically nice
polypathic WinWin eco-messages,

Healthy wealth engorged,
DNA vulcanizing,
creolizing,
affluent effluent rooted Elder RightBrain stem
branching non-sectarian networks
leafing non-violent webs
budding non-competitive WinWin economies
seeding co-passionate
co-arising dipolar
Here/Now
SpaceTime ZeroZones
both resilient and resonant,
both health and wealth co-passionate messages

Paid forward
through all affluent history with effluent herstory integrity
to speak enthymematic yang-cause with yin-infective solidarity
Positive 1s co-passioning bilateral 0-Zones

Informed by Earth’s healthiest well-being
this democratic energy-balancing
emergent WinWin green integral
not merely psychological
and not unjustly eco-political day.

Beyond LeftBrain Intelligence

In Beyond Religion
the Dalai Lama offers non-sectarian roots of compassion
to motivate global cooperative behaviors
and inner mentally nurturing health values.

He begins with the assumption
his readers are asking,
How and Who are we
to become more compassionate,
kinder,
more forgiving,
more health v pathology discerning?
Not just in our root passionate intent
but in our actual co-invested behavior.

We already respond to such questions
by educating our health/wealth nondualistic hearts.

We already work to restrain negative behaviors
with anger and fear mindful
non-mongering
anti-competitive nonself-marketing management.

We already combat and absorb,
acclimate and cooperatively sublimate
destructive emotional impoverishing tendencies.

We already aspire to cultivate ego-health values,
passion,
patience,
contentment,
self-forgiveness for past and future woundedness,
peaceful sufficiency of time and well-being,
left and right bicameral discipline toward mutually transparent confluence,
and co-operative eco-political generosity, paid forward
from one DNA-inspired wealth generation
to those healthy co-arising next.

Such practice,
everyday practice,
awareness practices require no special equipment,
no sectarian religious beliefs,
no lack of pro-active commitment to cooperatively vulnerable compassion.

Our global and local vocations,
across vast seas
and on our own thresholds,
to live ethically unitarian, egalitarian
integrally
harmoniously Earth patriotic
resiliently
resonantly
regeneratively with and for all sentient and sensed Others,
with a wealthier GoldenRule sense of health becoming,
is already co-passionately practiced
practiced
practiced independently of any sectarian nature v spirit dualistic intelligence.

Deep natural health and wide spiritual pan-sectarian wealth
educating our cooperatively owned and managed DNA
infused and still faithfully pumping Elder RightBrain
holistic
autonomic hearts
and newer LeftBrain conscientious minds
already co-invest passionate bilaterally committed time,
past with future strings
unweaving and reweaving nature/spirit species,
in multiculturally sustained sensory effort.

Cooperative
integral
global health spirited through locally embodied
efforts to learn kind-hearted health
with wealth-minded integrity

So we can all left/right
yang/yin intelligently benefit
from already enchanting ecopolitical
ego/eco-logical
co-passionate Light,
co-operative Ways,
co-interdependent Truths.

Beliefistic Behaviorism

LeftBrain thought powers
follow RightBrain warm light and cold dark feelings.

Like behavior follows beliefs
follow repeated warm/cold rituals
follow entrenched belief networks
building walls between appositional changes
of positive/negative trend directions
too often complexly confused

With antithetical divine/human
spirit/nature
outside/inside oxymoronic opposition
where ecological true cannot be a false ego-unlogical thesis
and must be, at least LeftBrain deductively
left not not false right now,
holistically here
in time-spaced flows
of felt health climate passage.

Transitioning revolutionary future thoughts follow past resonant
and dissonant,
healthy and pathological feelings,
and apathetic unfeelings
follow learned and inherited behaviors
follow integral beliefs in past through future eternal memories
felt sacred as DNA enscriptions
toward healthy light integrity
absorbs pathological dark ego-sectarian mendacity

So too,
future ecoschool non-violent instructions
prescriptions
formulas felt
and thought Win/Win descriptive
of past healthy memories

Told and then written down as sacred scripture thoughts
originally eco-theological
following light and dark strictures
felt secularly ecological,
refining risky LeftBrain oppositional limits of thought
defining Whole NonViolent Systems
RightBrain felt as holonically integral Win/Win opportunity,

Synergetic healthy climate thoughts
following feelings for cooperative eco-schooled
ego-listening for WinWin reweaving integrity.

Muses Never Die

Like all Earth’s timeless Muses,
Musicians never die,
we just keep improvising
on resonant themes of fading elder voices.

Apathy, especially about Earth muses,
is not necessarily an inevitable pathological anti-empathic EgoCentrism

Growing cynical about life’s authentic opportunities
need not always invite death’s terminating risks.

Muses have never said we are realistic
or rational,
thinking only of narrow walls
protecting fearful and angry anthro-capital city demi-gods.

Sacred Muse resident cooperatives
could become mutually invited and resonant places
without capital-driven anthropocentric Win/Lose competitions.

Resonant therapeutic music
and healthy movement
can yet emerge from liberal democratic trust
and conservational respect
among compassionate bicameral players
and workers,
parents and mentors and musing teachers,
more musical ensemble preachers,
interdependently non-sectarian,
cooperatively unspecialized.

When green ultra-nonviolent Muses fail
to ecosystemically see and hear
beyond narrow walls of short-term Win/Lose capital investment,
resonant cooperation among us Muses
becomes yet another revolutionary anthem
remembering long-term economic
and political,
biological
and Earth-logical DNA
of and for Muse resilient voices
fading and swelling,
breathing out compassion,
breathing in cooperative co-relations,

Like cytosine with uracil,
yin with yang,
out-flowation with information
matriarchal with patriarchal
RightBrain induction with LeftBrain deduction
southern river valleys with northern mountain glaciers
resonant with resilient
singing with dancing
ultraviolet with green
bilateral TaoTime with 4D FractalSpace
sacred with secular
theological with ecological
balancing Truth with Beauty Muses.

Musicians never die,
we just keep Win/Win improvising
with resonant themes of fading elder voices.
