Seen But Not Heard

I remain stuck
and struck
by children to be seen behaving
but preferably not heard
regardless of behavior,

But especially not heard criticizing their WiseElders
or, probably worse, mimicking them;
although some parents,
especially grandparents,
do see mimicry as graceful flattery
and occasionally a disgraceful lesson–
our children hope to see and hear us
behaving healthy, in return.

This feels very like future employees
to be seen functioning properly
according to corporate wealth-enculturing rules
and not to be heard
criticizing their WiseSuperiors.
Which may have nothing to do
with seniority or merit or wisdom,
much less all three,
or with WinWin supervisory therapeutic skills.

Seen obeying
and not heard criticizing
also feels like an evangelical fundamentalist
of God is Win
and the Devil makes us Lose–
a fascist punisher of bad behavior
and intrusive colonizing speech

Waiting his patriarchal turn
to play God
getting retributive even
bullying those disgraceful not listened to
rather than loving all (green) seen
as graceful learning DNA/RNA eco-mimicry.

Work That Reconnects
Future Searches
for God as cooperative Gaian Hypothesis,
syncretic PositivEnergy Democratic co-facilitators,
disciples of healthy grateful co-listening,
taking graceful health-directing turns

ReConnecting parents with children who watch
and act
and grow
with pride of co-creation
listening to EarthTribe voices
with polycultural
mnultigenerational compassion

These FutureSeekers
and developers
do not monoculturally confine
restorative voices of OrthodoxGod
to retributive NotSoWise PunishingElders.

WinWin CoDesigners
appreciate each voice of sacred dignity
including Wise NewBorn Integrity,
yang still with yin delight
Ego co-arising Sacred ElderEco.

Patriarchal doers
and global movers
and planet shakers,
but not plant terrorists and punishers,
are also FirstNation Matriarchal
holy global spirit-listeners,
from whom we originally Gaia re-incarnated,

Heard DNA with RNA more solidarity empowered
PositivEnergy Democracy
restoratively therapeutic
and seen less
as non-violent cooperative weakness.

And yet,
even with all that said
and probably not a prayer of being heard,
I remain stuck
and struck
by children to be seen
and preferably not heard
by God
and Allah
and parents
and future WinLose punishing employers,
monoculturing owners and colonizers
more than polyculturing co-operators
and DNA-RNA WiseElder creolizers.

Smashed Turkey YamJam

My parenting totem
was the Hawk
of bicamerally perfect egocentric vision
usually greeted by a loud Yang squawk
and vigorous walk
in the other wrong direction.

My WiseElder totem
is the Turkey,
CoMessiah of CoRedemptive Dying
as notnot loving EarthTribe’s future lives.

At eight,
my totem was muse Dragonfly,
greeting and bowing
to Eastern red sky dawns,
mysterious wordless delight.

Yet also warning me,
to get to Hawk yang strength
on into Turkey WiseElder resilient years
I must bear through
mym early adulthood Bear totem,
adolescent polypathic dirges
of synergetic introspection,
lust for perenially nutritious Hibernation Dreams
of eremetic Earth
as Paradise
now climatically
and critically
and pathologically overpopulating Lost,
awaiting total colonization of spring
as AmericaFirst Welfare Found.

Although
these multicultures and DNA tinctures,
scents and colors,
from Eastern DragonFly
through Southern Bear
through Western Hawk
through North American Turkey
were not inter-relationally accessible
until I learned
to translate polypathic Turkey
into polyphonic fractaled
perennially recycled
ego healthy ecowealth.

Turkeys
prefer resilient WiseElder years
and bearing hawk regimes
cooperatively thriving.

To sustain Dragonfly endurance
through WinLose competitions
Business as not-WinWin Usual.

Turkeys
appreciate sleeping through roosting nights
without WinLose nightmarish interruptions.

Turkeys
cannot tolerate
LoserEgo against Loser EcoPolitics
because such lack of self and other esteem
breeds darkish NegativEnergy climates
of pathology.

Turkeys
link their WiseElder ego-internal loops
and caustic lumps
with their EcoNatural external climates
and improvising clumps.

WiseElder Turkeys
and Hawks
and Bears
and muse-dreaming DragonFlies
bear through nuturing Energy Democracies,
co-operative restorations Turkey-invested
fully grateful
for mythic GoldenRule
ecopolitical WinWin
co-relational structures.

WiseElder Turkeys
LeftBrain polytheistically pray,
but never prey,
and beg
and full-flight non-violently demand
other WiseElder Turkeys
to EarthLove our WinWin way back
to reconnect Grazing Commons
where lies now our epic pathology mess.

Mature resilient Turkey multicultures,
with natural-spiritual nondual
inside-outside DNA assumptions
prefer to grow restorative multigenerational justice
with all nutritional positive energy Tribes
of and for Democratic Life
and no more plutocratic
AntiTurkey suffering death

And have the turkey nerve
to call this Commons Easter Rights
of cooperative WinWin SuperGodSun Might,
and Thanksgiving,
and InterDependent Turkey Day.

Turkeys
Left with Right
West with East
interdependent Yang with nondual empty Yin
Zero-WinWin summations
reweaving bilateral wu-wei memories
spiraling slow flow
like turkey gravy
made with goat’s milk
on steaming organic smashed yams.

My ultraviolet turkey gravy
has a lot to say
which might not be the case
after just this one bright day.

She sings in pro-life
spiraling colors,
She speaks to restore
health-wealthing odors.

My bilateral nondual turkey
holds up outside racing natures
to her inside harmonic spirits,
hoped for well-nurtured egocenter
gathering inside wellness EcoCentering Schools
of improvising WinWin acclimation support
without WinLose distractions.

She worships Father’s Sun
and Matriarchal HolySpirit Earth
nondual GodNatured EarthSoul
with interior SacredGaia AnimaMundi
spiraling co-arising Core
Greek with Latin
restorative resonant orthodoxy
of nondual NatureSpirits CoArising
to breathe in ultra-violet North,
breathing out toward where we all
DNA secular ecological economy
with RNA sacred light theology
politically began

RightBrain WinWin Prime
Zero notnot CoRelationals,
PositivEnergy Democracy’s
original intent
of Wild BiLateral Turkishness.

Cooperative Health and Climate Care

Toby Hemenway,
in The Permaculture City,
defines four prime health development principles,
adapted as follows:

Highest Use
orders health maintenance tasks,
ecological activities,
and growth/decomposition processes
in time and space
so the first activity in a spiraling sequence
leaves as many possible health yields
and subsequent reiterative uses
as harmonically possible.
Highest and deepest use
creates balanced wu-wei relationships
among health design elements
and wealth building processes
in and through ecologically rhythmic time
and place.

Needs As Potential Resources Analysis
identifies necessary health inputs
and wealth outputs
of many nutritional kinds,
products,
behaviors,
characteristics
spatial quantities and temporal qualities
of each subsystem in an eco/bio-system,
including humane-natural/spiritual systems,
and connects needs of one element
with outputs of another.
We thereby design harmonic relationships
of WinWin balance
among design elements themselves,
ourselves.

Zones
organize design systems
by how often they are used and need cooperative maintenance.
The most used systems
are placed most vulnerably nearest in spacetime
to the ZeroZone user
or center of identified activity.
Zones build health and organize wealth relationships
between a system
and the user of identified zero-center.

Sectors and Species
are influences from outside;
influences that cannot be altered from within the spacetime system in question.
They can be Yang competing physical influences,
such as wind and fire,
or Yin-cooperative intangible influences,
enculturing,
creolizing,
such as zoning,
care giving and receiving customs,
LeftBrain polypathic power,
and RightBrain emotional polyphonic triggers.
We place design elements
in relation to species and sectors to feed or bleed energies,
or let them pass through
with no decompositional effect.
Sectors and Species
create regenerative relationships
between parts of an eco-bio system
and Yang forces
and Yin-influences
shaping enculturation,
acclimation outside toward inside
each ZeroZone system.

Spiritual Developments

Erik Erikson
described U.S. culture
as stuck in adolescence,
and a more feminist Erika Fromm,
or Erik Erikson,
might have added
Nationalistically stuck in patriarchal adolescence.

Yet in the normal course of biological events,
and spiritual evolutions,
each life,
individual and cultural,
unfolds a rudder.

Each rudder has a Tipping Point,
acting like a pre-deductive
adolescent-curious
rudder,
manipulated by a health-intending navigator,
like the pre-ramp lip
on a wheelchair ramp,
inviting a more cooperative initial push
or final descent
in helpful on and off directions,
left and right,
up and down,
in and out,
back and forth,
Yang ecological economic maturity
with Yintegrative adolescent revolutionary politics,
nondual faces of one co-directing intention
toward recognizing limitations
and liabilities
of competitive adolescent behaviors
too patriarchal LeftBrain dominant for fully mature unfolding,
while also appreciating more cooperatively slow
and steadier
eco-flowing assertions
to politically co-enfranchise matriarchal RightBrain
integrity of improved developments
of and for Tipping Point maturation.

Inside Outdoor Voices

Just as honesty plants seeds of integrity
so too
vulnerability plants seeds of honesty.

My primary vocation
in this my gay grandfatherly retiring age
is to parent mindbody challenged adolescents
of diverse colors
as ecotherapeutically as possible
to optimize their and our wealth
of health,
growing nutritional elements and moments
into humanely co-operative organisms
with good days
more than bad.

More or less like watering the flowers
and ignoring the weeds,
or, better yet,
repurposing the weeds,
redirecting their potential energy
in a more nutritiously nurturing way.

My kids not only are vulnerable,
they know they are vulnerable,
and this tends to make them exceedingly honest
with themselves
with me
with each other
about what is funny and what is tragedy.

They are easy to parent
in this way.
Yet this same vulnerability
is their greatest risk
in a too often competitive,
and mindless of other’s special needs,
world.

We communicate connected to the feeling level,
even while learning the ABCs,
the 1 through 100 percents of good and bad numbers
and proportions and balance and symmetry,
the drawing of self-portraits,
homes,
Earth and Her Sun.

Often these inside feeling voices
do not feel well enough to care about the ABC’s,
or even the needs of those we need to love
and to love us,
to be as lovely with as possible.
Inside feeling voices
become loud and angry and hurt outside voices.

I noticed this the other day
when old family friends dropped by.
Not quite as old as I
and therefore much less retired
from life’s exterior competitions.

When we had time to visit several times per week,
we often began together
checking in about how our inside voices were feeling today,
happy or sad,
depressed or triumphant,
and usually some more richly nuanced place between.

Then we would turn to our big outdoor voices.
What we were working and playing on and with
in our back and front and side-yards,
the gardens and woodlands of our productive nutritional lives,
how the pets and pests
and domestic egg-layers were feeling,
and why
and why not.

These two voices generally resonated with each other.
What we were working on with Outdoor Voices
said something about nutrition and health we were working on
as individuals
as a family
with our Inside Voices,
and vice versa.

Only then,
if there was nothing else to do,
no further outdoor recreations
and discernment projects,
would we return to more
yet less intimate and vulnerable
Indoor Voices.
Work and play projects in perpetual interior process.
The noticing of more ornamental acquisitions
like ceiling and wall and floor coverings,
safer boundaries
about what we could see together
through all those more interior feelings
and thoughts about relationships,
past and future and present interactions,
transactions of value and disvalue,
warmth and cooler apathy.

I remembered this yesterday
when old friends,
no longer neighbors, revisited
and we began with new floor and ceiling coverings
and ended with farewell.
They arrive so late
it is already past time to be back home
to get ready for another Indoor Voices
monotonous
monoculturing day.

Which, this morning,
results in feeling blessed
to be here in this time and place
to listen and speak at our leisure
with my vulnerable no-boundary kids,
outrageously honest about their nutritional needs
and wants,
speaking with full volume integrity
in both Inside Outdoor Voices,
health
meets and greets and eventually defeats
pathology,
through honest integrity
of repurposing redirection,
feeding the flowers
and noticing how funny the weedy Outdoor Voices
sound indoors
feeling our way through the ABCs
and the 1 through 100% flowering days
and mean weedy nights.

I’m surprised and disappointed
my former neighbors didn’t notice all the new fruit trees
and berry bushes
poppies and lilies
strawberries and tomatoes
onions and garlic
asparagus and rhubarb,
and 17 new solar panels on the roof!

My kids could care less
and probably never more
what our old friends did
and did not
notice,
other than their own Voices
vulnerably maturing into integrity,
I hope.

Still,
I’m glad they noticed,
because the liked,
the new floor and ceiling covers.

UnHoly Punishments

“God punishes us for what we can’t imagine.”
Stephen King

What we can’t imagine
is what we won’t imagine
for lack of polypathic priority,
for too much fullness of rotting exegetical Promise.

What I won’t imagine
becomes what I would never choose to invest in,
to nurture,
both filled with fear
of self-emptying prophecy
and overflowing with love
for Earth’s fulfilling potentiality;
robust
resilient with or without us
regenerate
opposite of delineating pathology
through superego’s anthro-absence.

We evolve healthy wealth becomings
truncated by static nonverbal then verbal …isms,
unimaginably ebbing and flowing
what we have not yet hypostatically imagined dynamic,
ergodically patterned,
bionically rhythmed
creolically rocked
and matriarchal understory schism-rolled
rewards of and for Earth’s echo imagining bicamerality,
sacred nondual ecology.

God’s punishment
is for what we won’t imagine,
multiculturally polypathic together.

MultiCulturally PolyPathic Design

Active Hope principles and policies
and ego/eco-planning procedures
deep learn how to transform monocultural ecopolitics
through Permacultural Design and SubClimate Development
of multiculturally ecological climaxes,
diastatically Active Love
of truth in beauty polycultures,
planting and harvesting future ecstatic climate regenerators.

If Active Hope is LeftBrained Yang,
then Active Faith is Elder Matriarchal RightBrained Yin,
symbiotically Active Loving TaoTime
of Earth climate revolutions.

Active Matriarchal Hope
is the appositional tipping point
struggling with, but not against,
Condemning Patriarchal Hate,
as polyculturally rich intent
to monocultural competing health-insurance
as ecopolitically nationalistic normal practice.

We belong to both,
as did our ReGenerating cooperative, sometimes competing, Elders,
but would prefer more of Mother Earth’s Wisdom
and somewhat less of Father Sun’s over-zealous climates
of terrorizing Earth-Raping devastation.

Active Hope,
PermaCultural Intelligent PolyPathic-PolyNomial Design,
to become regeneratively fair and even-handed,
more about facilitating nutritional matriotic
to absorb all that pre-millennial national patriotic
LeftBrain dominant, States of devolving nihilism
where deductive-only counts
with accurate (0)-soul Zen-Tao interest
in EarthJustice Climates of ReGenerating Health.
