Sympathy Isn’t Quite Empathy

To affirm and promote acceptance
of one another
and all together one
is to also affirm and promote
growing capacity for active empathy,
not settling for passive,
sometimes also ToughLove aggressive,
sympathy

The best possible outcome
being mere liberating tolerance–
which is still a big evolutionary step up
from conservative survivalist
intolerance,

Which anyone
who is in any way
not BusinessAsUsual
LeftBrain dominant
StraightWhite patriarchal
can tell you,
at probable great anecdotal length
personal
political
economic
cultural
education sadly replete
with unsystemic intolerance
of indigenously sacred
Wisdom

That win/lose passive tolerance
is NOT active
democratically healthy
wealthy multicultural acceptance,
an immensely positive moral
legal
spiritual
natural polycultural
deep immersion value

Omnipotently integral potential knowledge
of why eco-political empowerment
and enlightening wisdom
are more than mere personal win/lose tolerance

LeftBrain dominantly verbalized
capitalized
fathered YangPower
against EarthMothering YintegraLight

Of HerStoric wise-felt feeling
knowledge
co-investing in empathic Wisdom

To affirm and promote acceptance
of one another
and all together one.

Money Nerves

Not wanting to make anyone nervous,
pandemics can be unsettling enough
without economic and political surprises,
inconvenient systemic insights,
more expansive circles of empathy
positively impressing
more than negative deep
steep hierarchies
practicing neglectful shallow sympathy
for Others
on distant pagan shores.

These government checks
that come and go in the mail
or by direct deposit
between you and the IRS,
these speak up for

“From each according to her/his financial ability;
to each according to his/her immediate need”

Which sounds suspiciously Karl Marxian
and that Engels white labor-activist guy

Than speaking empowerment efficacy of
and up
and for more competitive evolutionary
Capitalistic Voices
fossil-fueling financial systemic choices

“From each consumer and taxpayer
as much as possible;
to each producer and legal resident
as little as possible
in return.”

These pandemic support checks
are public welfare investments
in our cooperatively held economic
and healthy democratic wellbeing future,
and healthy wealth of future multicultural
generations

With resilient ability to pay back
and long-term financial need
to cooperatively thrive
more than competitively survive

Economic investment values
usually attributed to scary words like
“Socialism”
and “Social Engineering”
but also speak of cooperative win/win
long-term healthcare thinking
more than BusinessAsUsual
competitive win/lose scheming,
nightmarish climate pathology
escapist dreaming.

When these twelve
and six
and fourteen hundred dollar checks come
from our federated governing system,
this is closer to Cooperativist Economic Behavior

Than to Communism,
where the State owns all the assets
and capacity to produce cash at will
and redistribute monetized wealth
not based on earnings
but on the number of human mouths to feed
and water
and keep relatively comfortable with sufficient healthy food
soil
clean water
non-toxic air,
reasonably non-traumatic
unruly
and highly erratic fire
and weather
and rabidly depopulating epidemics…

So, when your fourteen hundred dollar check
peacefully arrives in your checking account
or in snail mail,
please remember,
with personal gratitude and political respect for integrity,
this is sacred GreenCommunion
at our cooperative federated best;
social democracy of an extended kinship kind.

You and I have no further reason to worship
at the monocultural altar of unfettered Capitalism,

A system patriarchally designed for predators
against their unprivileged prey,
without becoming uncomfortably aware
of our cooperatively unmeasured hypocrisy.
about unpatriotically not supporting
multicultural EarthTribe democracy.

Teachable Momentums

Today
we left off yesterday
to pick up
where speaking non-violent principles
too often neglect to listen
to liberally artistic,
green and active
yet non-reactive
compassionate healers
may need to co-invest more
in co-operating democratic research
of
and for
WholeEarth DiaLogical Matriotism.

Excuse me,
but co-passioned listening
to silence
speaks not consent
to dispassionate lectures

Featuring compassionate feelings,
in every way but delivery
of compassionate communication
compatible with thoughtful principles of non-violent change
more intuitive, less leftbrain cognitive,

Complex language systems
yet less chaotic than violence
random
overpowering
more than dipolar nuance

I’m hearing sensory
sensually resonant
co-passionate polyphonic language
forming more of an octave healing choir
singing four part green gospel

Natural liturgy for thriving
Truth and Beauty
health and safety
passionately surviving

Yet another autonomous Yang-verbal lecture
to pass down information
from heavenly paradise Principles
passive dispassion voiced
from on high ex cathedral authors
and authority judge figures

Speaking down
into fading democratic deep learning
root systemic researching ears and eyes,
noses and mouths
tasting and seeing warm and cold feelings
bitter and sweet tastes salty and sour
acidic needs
to feel authentically persistent

Green regenerative miracles
of perennially trusted Truths
and safely symmetrical double-binary Beauty

Compassionately ego-therapeutic
while restorating WholeEarth
systemic cooperative justice
exhalations

For today’s politically incorrect multicolors
shade
and then fade Blue liberal elite egalitarian
to remerge communing Green
conservational conversational
nonviolent interdependence
passing through principles
of autumn’s non-violet 0-range

Playing hard impassioned thoughts
as soft compassion worked out feelings
win/win multiply
optional peace investment games

Calculating leftbrain privileged
autonomous unspoken risks
against, not with,
rightbrain win/win adventurous opportunities
to regain regeneratively healing
positive blue/green WholeEarth classrooms

Health/wealth systemic
dually compassionate
intuitive co-investments
ego/eco therapeutic,
bicamerally speaking
after bilaterally deep learning
listening.

As I was starting to say,
before so compassionately
impassionately interrupted
from where we left off
in the 20th century
leftbrain information flowering
of 19th century Industrializing
Well Capitalized Militarizing
Colonizing
Patriarchal StraightWhite
ego designed AnthroSystems
privileged violent evangelical Yang
Red demonizing
vengeful
punitive shame

On EcoOthers
dissociating blame away from Ego

PreDetermined monotheistic identity
only a leftbrain StraightWhiteMale god
could lectionary empower MAN
not so kind,

Yet sometimes curiously clever
at being cruel
enough to economically survive
not just passively obey
long enough
for yet another democracy thriving day

This green post-millennial 20/20 range
of compassionate revision
re-arranges reweaving reconnecting re-ligion

Our curiously clever win/lose
autonomously investing
light and power entrepreneur

May hope to retire
a professional academic
merely PhD-grade
Either True Or False philosopher

Feeding and watering ego identity
versus verses reverses
eco-incorporated overbearing
assaulting and extracting task masters

And my favorite pin-striped suit,
male or female,
and sometimes she/male
in between

An industrious era
of leftbrain capital dissociation
from traditional nutritional roots
uprising RedYang resiliently systemic
reverse green re-anticipation
within a compassionately felt octave

CoAwareness
multiculturally feeling and responding

And polyculturally passionately thinking
and co-responsive
co-investing in Teacher/Student
Parent/Child co-mediating
compassionate Language Circles
for restoring green EarthJustice

Needs no important permission
or more information
from wise leftbrain Authority
before win/win economic/ecological
deep empowerment listening
co-arises multicultural felt voices

No longer bought and sold
by more monoculturing
leftbrain education systemic
patriarchal choices

Instead, now re-investing
in blue/green equity
and cooperative 0-range co-invested
authenticity of co-articulating Green Communion
principles of healthcare systems
giving as receiving communications

Sometimes memed
and re-membered
and re-connected
rewoven,
rehealing mixtures
of left/right dipolar co-arising
teacher/wise student compassionate discourse,
trans-generational proactive win/win deliberation

Deep co-listening dialogues
mentored and co-mediated
talk stereophonic non-violent therapy
and green blogcast
cooperative
regenerating win/win health
caring non-violent
ultra-nonviolet coverage

Also feeling yintegral
full moon compassion flowing
rooted 0-range original
unrigid
uncoverage lessons
left right off
for yet another past tomorrow
this cooperatively held day

We left off yesterday
to pick up
where respeaking non-violent principles
too often neglect to listen
to liberally artistic,
green and active
yet non-reactive
compassionately curious
eternally young
green healers.

Silent UnPrivileged Stories

When I was a Big Brother
for Jason,
an African-American 10 year old male,
we went into his apartment
so he could look around
for a long overdue library book.

As I accompanied him
from room to sparsely furnished room,
looking in nearly vacant closets,
cupboards,
drawers,
the only book we found
was a phone book,
looking silently neglected
much more than actively abused.

My first white male privileged
feelings about his Mom
had to do with blaming her
for probably not even feeling ashamed
for her irresponsible choices
while economically and politically administering
their bookless house
in this pre-WWW information age.

But, then I began asking questions.
What could Jason tell me
about his Mom’s life
when she was his age?

What were stories
familiar to her,
read
or retold
or experienced
and re-experienced,
therapeutic or traumatic?

Through this widening narrative moment
of multigenerational conjecture,
hypothesis,
questioning,
contemplating,

I also learned to question
what traumatic straight white male stories
are experienced by gay
and bisexual
and transsexual 10-year-olds,
regardless of racial identification,

And by 10-year-old girls,
perhaps regardless of racial identification,
or even further amplified
by being doubly,
and silently, outside
straight white patriarchal privilege.

I found myself
suddenly
tearfully
incapable of briefly imagining
much less deeply,
unflinchingly contemplating
the trauma
of growing up poor
and lesbian
and black or brown
or too red
or too yellow
without any books
or stories,
read
or retold
or experienced
about how her 10-year-old life will matter,
could be healthy, someday,
would ever be felt safe,
unless held shamefully silent,

Not appropriate material
for books
or retelling
or experiencing straight
white
male dominant stories,
economic
and political narratives
about retributive trauma
and not multicultural
restorative
democratically inclusive therapy.

Fragrance v Odor

My new forest and park neighbors,
mostly birds
squirrels
and strangely curious
and ravenous rabbits,

Have become accustomed to,
spoiled by,
fragrant green sanctuary
ancient fertile memories.

But, today
our neighborly horse farm
must be cleaning house.
This smells of too rich compost
upstaging even more gracious green.

This downgrade
calls to me
recalling former toxic smells,
fossil fuel exhausting,
were sooo… much more degenerative.

Horsey compost
lies between love’s light life fragrance
and dark skinned death
of odorous Earth.

Yet, comparing distances
between green forest
and horse fragrance
and transported stinky fractures
through sacred climates ecological
resonant and resilient airs
and gusts
and breezes,

Comparative distances
continuously,
yet consecutively, change
what one might argue
is a contrasting wealth of difference,
+1, to -1, with midway
horse-powered zero neutral

Feels more like two-thirds healthy fragrance
and only one third toxic

Feels closer to three-fourths salient
to one-fourth punitive memory
from here
and now perspective,

Feels closer to seven-eighths
to one-eighth formerly deranged
of a revolutionary
resonantly regenerative
fractalling
resiliently redundant
multicultural sensory/spiritual
nurturing
re-communicating natural octave
of Golden Ratio/Rule comparison,

At last
resiliently resonant.

Local Living Matters

I hear things right side down
and bottom left side up
as I get older
so consider the source.

Anyway,
I hear Colchester Connecticut Democrats,
and some cross-registering Republicans,
want to establish
a multicultural health commission
concerned about military
and local police mercenaries
feeling discriminated against,
picked on,
unloved,
left out,
under-valued,
ignored,
neglected,
abused,
shot at.

T Rocko is concerned
such a vast investment
in multicultural respect,
solidarity of resonance,
integrity of long-term resiience
through commitment to public dialogue
rather than contentious debate,
could only be justified
with quantitative data

Adding up how much
anti-militarism
and anti-police prejudice
exists
and costs
in Colchester.

In this political
and economic moment
of social cooperative distancing,
dissociation,
scape-goating,
rabid polarization,
toxic partisanship

We need a baseline,
says he,
of mutual disregard,
to measure regenerative progress
and/or degenerative retrenchment
from community integral investments
in health remediation,
inclusive wealth
for future cooperative governing generations.

Rudko,
self-appointed sole guardian
of our public investment purse,
responds,

Supporters of Armed Lives Matter
are “making a generalization…
not based on facts”
that silence means discontent,
speaks echo-chamberly
of feeling an unhealthy
lack of mutually fulfilling safety

Too risky
for speaking up transparently
to listen vulnerably
to all cooperative opportunity “Other”
and “Alien”
and “Immigrant”
And especially Not Straight Male Dominant
voices,
narratives,
aggressive predation stories
of relentless win/lose debate
rather than cooperative win/win dialogue
with social and multicultural intelligence.

Steadfastly Unsure

I remain unsure
of how to reliably
robustly
resonantly
resiliently
and yet autonomously distinguish
between contemplative leisure
and contempt provoking laziness.

I remain unsure
why Eastern metaphysicians,
spiritual/natural nondualistic teachers
continue to describe
ego as not only ignorant
of identity’s leisurely origins,
but also lazy-eye False;

And,
in a positive corollary,
I remain steadfastly unsure
Why ego’s experience of living Earth
is not merely an insufficiently delusional lens
but also is taught
as an unnecessary laziness of mind illusion

Blocking truer natural polypaths
and more beautiful polyphonics,
octave harmonies of sight and sound,
air and water
and tables of cooperative/competitive
electronic-fractal contents
of touch with feeling,
physical with metaphysical experience.

This confusion,
about necessary ego individuality
and unnatural EarthMother detachment,
not normal segregating experience,
insufficient multicultural health
to thrive wealthy resilient EarthTribes,

Leads to teaching Ego and EcoExperience
as entirely False
because only partially TrueHealthy
is a stumbling block
for straight white western patriarchal minds
dualistic consciousness
theoretical awareness
capitalistic investments and
social-cultural transfers
through win/lose eco-politically privileged
distorted education systems
not provoking deeply nutritious
and widely nurturing
polycultural design and outcome education
for Beautiful Truths
artistic sciences
theoretical/experiential musecological metric systems

Of LeftBrain dominant entitled EarthDwellers
as autonomous real estate owners
experiencing some measure
of white patriarchal
fundamental dualistic success
in sacred eco-health v. secular ego-wealth
win/lose propaganda wars

Where ego identity
is necessary to secularly survive
but hardly sufficient to spiritually thrive
ecosystemic resilience

And experiencing Earth’s healthy climates
is not only naturally True
leisurely ego-wealth
but also more than sufficiently lazy
spiritual Beauty

Power for both nondualistic
reliably unsure hemispheres
to declare egos
and Earth health
and pathology phenomena False
feels unnaturally lazy
and unspiritually rushed,

Like rightbrain expansive East-West
dialogical communion Wisdom
being compressed
into True or False
leftbrain dominant soundbites.

Visiting the Buddha

We were visited by a baby
yesterday.

It felt good to bow
into her glittery brown eye level,

To speak of whatever came to mind
which was mostly about her truth
and blossoming beauty

Knowing she would not judge
and would listen
patiently
as long as I might care
to continue our song
of aging story.

Her response,
to continue sleeping
or to smile
while feeling
feeding eye to eye
mutual warmth

This is what I remember
wanting most
to speak about,

To remember
on this Memorial Day

Visited not yet by a victim
of war
but by a wise innocent
for peace.

Imposed Unemployment

These matters of imposed sequestration,
home health quarantine,
residential segregation,
safety zone re-education

Can also become
contemplative solitude
growing sacred mindfulness,
healthy wealth revision,
2020 wealth of health
bicameral precision,
monoculturing capitalist rescission,
dipolar non-division;

Social,
political,
economic communication
significantly emerge from personal preference
but also left-hemisphere patriarchal enculturation
no different than propaganda
if delivered with both left and right-hemisphere
collusion intent,
unnaturally sinister,
calculating desecration,
the stuff of deep state
and dark conspiracy theories

Either True or False
or both/and complexly
ego/eco-bilaterally ambiguous,
subtle,
nuanced thought with unpolarized feelings
for interior nurtured spiritual intention
and exterior nutritional natural extension,

Discernment of which solitary seeds
and subterranean root systems are health watered
and wealth weeded,

And which are treated like worthless weeds,
not to be watered with contentment,
fed with commitment,
nourished for cooperative values,
cherished within ecosystemic futures,
compassioned.

This weediness of ego-neediness
prays for non-preying return
to ecosystemic communal fullness.
