Educating Roots

I have noticed
all my daily educational journeys
begin with,
Where do I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

I come from living waters
as profoundly liberating as the air
we would soon learn to breathe.

I am feeling said
for all the opportunities I avoided
to escape all the risks
invited by my shortages of curiosity
and patience,

Sad for settling into my most intimate low commons denominator
lack of commitments
neglecting my healthiest potential connections
with other living waters,
natural spirited inspired inspirational experiences

With those who might have had ears to hear,
surf to ebb and swell emotion’s wane and wax,
with low-bar instructions
to stay out of troubled oceans
seas and seasons,
lakes and swampy ponds,
waiting to be industriously drained,
rivers and endless wondering wandering tributaries
of wet extracted nutrition.

Sacred water murmurs more active hope,
a spray tickling across a lucid lupine stream
speaking mountain voices with and through rounded
risky
stones

Actively seeking sights higher
deeper
wider
narrower
there
here
then flowing on into higher water marks
now threatening to swamp organisms
and organizations along the shore
of change in all relationships of Earth.

I feel said
I have not set my well-watered sights higher
than do no harm
to those living waters
flowing forward into time’s healthiest
transparent
vulnerable,
curious and courageous future sluggish currents of nutrition,
prophets of soon to come malnutrition,
and all climatic hopes and fears
angers and sadness
in-between drowning risks
and strong-flowing currencies of win/win
wellness watering opportunity

To notice
all my daily educational journeys
begin with,
Where did I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

Tocqueville Talk

Patrick Deneen follows Tocqueville
speaking of risks to Western liberal democratic experiments,
great personal enlightenment adventures
seldom calm within a federating kettle
of competing selected fish,
and usually not cooperatively resilient
for health optimization
of local community peaceful resonant wealth.

In Tocqueville’s time and place,
liberal democracy evolved from feudal win/lose pre-industrial aristocracy
overpowering non-elite serfs, and lesser natural organic beings,
royal kleptocrats,
universal white privileged patriarchs
by right of land and title inheritance
supported by Divine Might Makes Right
evolutionary theologies.

As Deneen liberally repeats,
capital-invested democratic consumer legitimacy
to cooperatively contract individually manifest
humane superior spiritualized dignity
is rooted in monocultural presentism,
fragmenting mono-generational cultural contracts
with multi-regenerational fields
and nutritional species
mellow meadows
robust mountains
and calm river valleys.

Where Divine covenants
signed, sealed, and delivered
to predator Aristocrats
were rooted in creeds
dogma
Divinely inspired scriptures,
psalms
sonnets
holy creation stories
sacred pre-historic memories,
usually of patriarchal governors
and their court-appointed entertainers,
fire-circle dancers
loyal soldiers
and oral legend-tellers,
poets,
singers,
lyricists,
fools,
seers,
prophets,
WiseElders.

Presentism fragments intergenerational liturgical-nutritional commitments,
argues Tocqueville,
repeats Deneen.

Yet liberal love integrates compassion
for all Earth’s regenerative/degenerative species
verbally historic and non-verbally pre-historic
patriarchal and matriarchal
deduced and induced
Divine EarthMother co-passion
multiculturally articulate co-enlightenment covenants
through cooperative win/win listening Time

Sacredly interdependent
natural/spiritual
traditionally nondual resilience
of Taoistic co-relational covenants

Indigenously spiraling
Yang/Yin
out/in
precessive/recessive iconic
dialogical EarthTime’s win/win sanctuary, ergodic.

Patrick Deneen follows Tocqueville
speaking of risks
and appositionally implied opportunities
for Western/Eastern liberal democratic experiments,
great personal North/South enlightenment adventures
seldom calm within a federating creolizing kettle
of competing win/lose
yet cooperatively win/win selected fish
swimming through climate surfing risks.

Difficult Discernment

We were discussing a line
between reasonable compromise
and unconscionable denial
in this time of rapidly escalating fragmentation

When I thought I heard a raw spot
deepened and widened by dissonant history
of disagreement,
antagonistic feelings about noetic consciousness
of past pathological
bad climate events.

Yet
when I ask how you feel
about how we are responding to your position,
story,
exposition,
entrenched in anxious missed communication opportunities
to share your own excitement,
You respond by blaming yourself
for not making your experience clear
quickly enough
given our limited time for co-invested commitment.

Is that your raw spot?
Our limited consciousness
about raw and bleeding climates of mortal turmoil
metaphysically remembered
through past regenerations/degenerations of limited time,
inevitable demise of relationship
currently valued by investment felt
in a more win/win
than win/lose history of personal communication,
communion,
mutually compassionate understanding
feelings of safe yet free dialogue
between appreciative teachers
who are first curious and compassionate listeners,

Listeners to now,
co-presence of ancient raw and therapeutic places
for terror and nurture,
for replanting and reharvesting,
for teaching and listening,
for articulating painful memory
and reflecting on therapeutic future response,
for win/lose plots within win/win commitment spots,
for curious thoughts
and feelings of emergent integrity,
experiential and yet re-membering
co-presently teaching here with active listening now
for past and future emotional voices,
some with, and many without, full consciousness
of responsive choices

For discussing discernment
between reasonable win/lose climates of compromise
and unconscionable denial
of life impeaching raw spots
in this time of rapidly escalating fragmentation,
where inclusive vulnerability
would better seek and find integrity.

To Our NRAss-ociation

To the No Relationship Association,

I suppose we will never find
a healthy way to prove
Lovelock’s Gaian Hypothesis
we have nothing left to lose
by cooperating more Win/Win
and competing less Lose/Lose.

No more or less than we could prove
our sun will reappear
to rise this next tomorrow
any more or less synergetically
than fundamental fragmentationally
apart.

Still, if not true
that love cooperatively empowers
more than hate competitively disempowers,
then how would we understand life becomes
more powerful than non-life’s static being?

If non-life artifacts of becoming
rocks in streams
of living water
shaped of star dust
and gaseous non-relationships
instead of nothing,

How could no thing
emerge from no ballistic space?

And why would no space for belonging
submerge this flow
of universal ergodic time
yang-health forward
restoring yin-wealth
of listening in non-violent
co-passionate DNA communion,
historic past?

Still,
I see your pointed rifle.
I suppose we will never find
a healthy way to wealthy prove
and disprove
unprove
reprove
pre-approve
Lovelock’s Gaian Synergetic Hypothesis
we have no right integrity
left to lose.

Restoring Natural Spirits

Dear Attorney Thompson Page, LLC
Sentient Advocate for Domestic Companions

Thank you for reminding me
last evening, as I was feeling unfree,
Retributive justice is rooted in ecological principles
of healthy empathic relationships
responsibilities
judgments
discernments
communications between sentient beings.

For remembering that good
healthy
effective legal systems
intend to protect our interdependent webs
while too often building punishing walls
settling into side-by-side cells
of separation,
fragmentation of wealthy democratic purposes
like robust well-being,
cooperatively-owned curiosity and prosperity,
healthy and courageous happiness,

Constitutional gratitude for compassionate priorities
win/wins for both justice and peace possibilities
of EarthTribe patriotic loyalties
encompassing suffering and joy.

You mentioned several crimes against sentient beings.
Some punished by legal precedent
for protecting human nature
more than Earth-nature’s other sentient breathing forms
legally misunderstood,
under-refined,
not well-defined,
as mere property,

Properties autonomously owned by narcissistic human natures,
Legally presumed as morally superior sentient beings,
becoming evermore integrity’s active win/win advocates,
inclusively aware
we are not humanely alone
in our co-empathic capacities for emotive communication.

I am wondering,
this morning,
if it would make a nondualistic difference
to our legal-moral systems
to notice, and give germane standing, to Lovelock’s Gaian Hypothesis
that multicultural Earth is a globally sentient ecosystem
capable of internal/external balancing health care,
evolutionary regenerative development
through complex organically organized sentience,
ecosystemically communicating awareness
between subclimates managing our diverse property
and properties for competitive/cooperative
EitherOr/BothAnd
walled/webbed bicameral communion.

If our legal oaths,
moral allegiances,
were to understand
One nation, under God
as also
One of many interdependent nations
and a few continents
and oceans
within Earth’s sentient integrity
of ecotherapeutic properties,

I wonder if punishing and fragmenting judgment systems
would fade into second place,
deferring to primal natural justice
for restoring healthy sentient relationships
between Earth’s propertied tribes,
species,
elements,

Could natural/spiritual legal properties
swing back toward universally uniting
what could not be healthy secular/sacred divided
by health-intelligent
Earth’s most sentient-wealthy beings?

First SunRise Service

My first great faith journey
involved exiting EarthMother’s nighttime womb,
without even a first language
except what RightBrain inherited
from noticing emotive taste and feel
and healthy/pathological touch
memories prehistorically Win/Win
and Win/Lose
and Lose/Lose souled
unsoiled either happy or mad,
learning both/and health-resilient midways.

From such humble nutritional/toxic expectations,
and win/lose annunciations
of EarthTribe’s integral potential,
wealthy yang opportunities and yin-unhealthy risks,
through adolescent win/lose romantic invested engagements

On through my own forty-year corporate adult commodified faith journey
ensuing
pursuing my great white-male privileged American dream;

A win/lose business-as-usual pilgrimage
toward my more recent retiring win/win destiny,
for healthy wise-elder now
unhealthy other-wise then

Not really a chosen win/win destination
freely destined to and as begun
with integrity of ego-me inside sacred eco-Other
co-passion for positive
healthy
rational/nutritional purpose

And perennial meaning
this old pre-cortical WiseElder right brain
we have anciently learned interdependence
does not believe in autonomous ego-mortality,

Right brain emotive intelligence
is not overly invested in left brain ego’s embedded fragmentation
co-arising feelings of righteous predative anger
and leftist prayers conserving lose/lose fears
of YangGod’s universally autonomous climate genocide.

Ego’s de-individuation
away from Earth’s healthy habitat
rejoining MotherEarth’s timeless individulting wombs
reproducing integrity’s conjoined co-passioning potential,

ReBecoming as I began
win/win re-entering memories re- and pre-historically souled
unsoiled
inside EarthMother’s first pre-cortical dark night

Becoming bicameral felt
effectively co-caused/effective
neo-cortical ego’s individuating day

ReComposing my first great healthy transformational
co-arising in/ex-formational
re-journey
re-membering my first great transitional
sunrise developmental
co-passioning light/energy service
courageously multicultural
vulnerably global
and transparently personal.

Yang/Yin ComPassion

If you are a Zen Buddhist
a Taoist,
where wealthy resonant homology
interdependently co-governs global developing history,
past through WiseElder resilient future,

And homology co-arises pre-born
DNA-nurtured
Win/Win healthy phylogeny
of matriarchally-born Earthlings,

If you are a Zeroist,
or an in-between Zoroastrian,
not asha (1) and not all druj (0) either,

You may know,
and perhaps even over/under-stand,
what it means to your ego
to contemplate regenerative in-between,
thin toward fat,
pregnantly interdependent
contemplative ZeroNest
outside Win/Win Earth-centering
inside still a little twisted EgoCentric Win/Lose
short-term One survivalist,

Which turns out to become
a whole lot more than constricted
and narrow-minded degenerating one-ness
of integrity without mendacity;

Unless by one-ness
your non(not-Zero) Ego
experiences integrity
of inside health
reflecting outside wealth,

A community’s healthiest universal destiny
is rooted in humanity’s wealthiest unitarian integrity

Which, in return,
leaves universal Zeroists with nothing much to say
while busy balancing yang-left
with yin-right co-consciousness
unitarian full blown-out flow

Which, in re-return,
is why Zen Buddhists
don’t have much to breathing teach
in-between the win/win Earth’s
asha and bilaterally not-not win/lose druj
within appalling Apollo/Dionysian
non-sectarian languages

Non-violently communicating outside/inside learning
universal yang-left ego faith regenesis
through yin’s right ecosystemic integrity,

Sung in diminished RightWing straining chords
less monoculturally anthro-centric,
out of harmonic win/win ego/eco-balance,

Which the re-re-returning Universally interdependent revolving Unitarians
seem to never stop talking with and through
freedom from and toward non-violent communion
in-between hyphenated hypothetical
heuristic not-this/not-that
zen-zeroistic
seminal wu-wei
cognitive-emotive confluence

At our best in early spring’s full moon
when outside new born light green buds
and sprouts
appear magically united stars
of ultra-violet bright solidarity
of glowing one-nest
as noticed by zero-ness hearts
seeking beauty dualdark green
ego/eco deeply echoing
divinely humane health/wealth
resilient EarthOrganic brown/black values

In sustainable Zero ZenSouls
remembering Yang/Yin full spectral color
points of original interdependent nourishing light

From and for Holy Matriarchal NewBorn Spirits
with holonic patriarchal Zero Summations
of Earth’s danced asha/durj revolution,

Sung intrinsically
and ZeroZone originally
by health/wealth his(1)/her(0)storic soil,
homological souls
of EarthTime’s win/win evolution.
