Cooperative Learning

I think
and feel
it would be a good
and healthy change
if schools,
at all levels,
and parents,
of all nations,
taught our young
more about win/win cooperative
thrival passions
than win/lose competitive
survival dispassions.

Even better,
and more urgently primal,

We might become a good
and healthy climate change
if students and teachers
and children and parents
and listeners and preachers,
followers and leaders
listened to our young and old
with more win/win compassionate hugs
than win/lose competing survival detachments,
disconnected abuses
learned through lifetimes of wounds
and non-win/win potential integrity

Deeply and widely learned
from struggling unfree parents
and robotic behavior-commodified,
multiply and then divide,
left-brain dominant teachers
and schools
and monocultures
and nationalistic nonself-governors.


Liberating Perfect Pride

In a perfect world
maybe everyone would have opposite and same sexual attractions,
ambiguously passionate attachments
of compassion’s resiiient arousal.

On a perfectly sanctified Earth,
maybe every species would incarnate only opposite sexual attraction,
attachments of passionate ego-arousal,
male dominant belonging in predation
with female receptively longing prey,
monogamy as exclusive
as monotheistic worship,
monoculturally privileged love,
uniformly felt
in dyadic great nature v spirit divides
between Yang/Yin sexual energy,
faithfully dipolar co-arising,

Rather than endless partisan debates
about which of these healthy freedom
proud visions will unfold
with further commitment to cooperative win/win deliberation,
structuring health optimal nurturing wealth futures,

Perhaps we could join in double-blind solidarity
to recreate this Earthly Paradise
of compassionate integrity
in all relationships,
all curious and courageous internal/external conversations
consciousness and subconsciousness and unconsciousness
from mother-infant primal
on through international co-passionate eco-politics?
And then listen and watch
for which sensory-neural miracle unfolds?

Maybe in win/win Heaven
of our active empowering imaginations,
what looks like internal either/or sexual politics
also comes to feel like external both/and sensory investment.
What feels globally nutritional
also grows personally healthy.

Maybe if we invest less
in predicting who will win,
males or females,
straights or bents,
whites or blacks,
[patriarchs or matriarchs,
yang or yin,
left or right,
north or south,
west or east,
uniformity or unity,
totalitarianism or liberalism,
divine salvation or humane sacrifice,
fragmentation or integration,
apartheid or cooperative co-ownership,
cognitive polypathic speakers or emotive polyphonic listeners,
win/lose or win/win cultures,

We might, instead,
walk in heuristic cognitive
and emotive
solidarity toward recreating
a more win/win experiential
co-relational planet,

Where left-brain health is re-conjoined
with right-brain sacred wealth,
trusting timeless regenerations of life
will evolve such radically profound sensory passions,
that these two great options
remain both curiously
and courageously to-gathering
integrity’s sensual-neural non-mendacity,
longing’s eternally changing belonging.

Like DNA’s fractal seasonal structure
of bilateral appositionals,
in which adenine’s spring adventures
never touch guanine’s autumn undevelopments,
just as cytosine’s full emotive climax
never speaks bilaterally without
thymine’s winterish understory
co-passionately 4D listening
for polynomial either/or’s
becoming sensory valued
with interdependent not-not polyphonic
ambidextrously harmonic
profoundly integral scaled and circled feelings
for Earth’s DNA health-wealth spiraling vocation
belonging within MotherEarth’s paradise vacation,

Sensory experiences in curious thymine
rooting for left-hemisphere dominant
and courageous cytosine
seeding right-sensed bilateral co-prominent.


Relationships Difficult to Imagine

It’s difficult to imagine
a liberal hearing “capitalism”
where a conservative fears too progressively individualistic

It may be difficult to imagine
too liberal with win/lose secular commodification
of fragmented life,
choosing majority rule democratic process compromises,
sacrifices of disorganized rabblish losers,
played as if we were win/lose tokens
in an epic Monotony Game,
each autonomously hoping to be reborn
into privileged status,
to wear the final egocentric crown
before all the less fortunate losers wander off
in cynical despair
of ever winning life’s final multi-regenerational lottery.

It’s difficult to imagine
a too liberal Both/And RightBrain
patiently suffering,
sometimes wrecklessly codepending on
a too conservative Either/Or LeftBrain
capital-hoarding economist,
a strictly utilitarian
bureaucratic monopolist
sleepy and unfeeling monotonist.

It’s difficult to imagine
a LeftBrain
dominated only with win/win compassion
to restore global Earth-centered justice
and multiculturing peace
as a more appropriate response
to climates of bicameral partisanship,
inside Left with Right hemispheres
as outside West with East,
conserving both transcendent sainthood
and not losing incarnate soul,
playing Win/Win nice with
Win liberally compassionate multicultural empowerment
and Win conservative health-wealth economies
of evangelical

It’s difficult to imagine
living fully without original primal
not-not ZeroSum nurturing memory
of EarthMother’s wombed Paradise,
spoken through listening voices
of transubstantiating DNA instructions
for personal through global resilient 4D regeneration.

It’s difficult to remember
when LeftBrain natural spring health
also meant RightBrain spiritual autumn wealth
of economic empowering co-passion.


Faith in Politics

Faith in politics is not popular.
Other than optimistic civics teachers
and elected office holders,
faith feels troublesome
when mixed with social empowerment
over Others.

“Others” holds and hides broad diversity:
people of color
indentured servants
melting ice caps
rising sea levels
polluted air
worn out topsoil
sewage disposal and highway and military systems
industrial production and consumption and devolutions…

Good faith in power
is faithful to power WITH Others,
WITH win/win co-aspirations,
and ego/eco-active non-ZeroSum hope
for health increasing more
openly contagious co-integrity.

Bad faith in power
builds reasons to justify
power against and over Others,
with win/lose evolutionary ZeroSum assumptions
about economic closed entropic-trending systems
currently favoring Western white privilege.

The faith

emotional and cognitive intelligence
left-brain win/win active hope
and right-brain felt love, compassion, integrity, co-empathy]

of Messiahs

[and Bodhisattva PeaceCorp Warriors, global mustard seed planters,
Hiawathas and Renewable Energy (inside and out) Advocates,
and Ancient EcoFeminist Wisdom Healers]

is rooted in early cooperative intent
to push together toward light

[integral harmony singing Voices of Other
mutual empowerment
happy, inviting climate therapy
potential for personal
and global

Good faith in politics
seeds active hope
for multicultural empowerment,
co-passioned love for synergetic health
as also true organic wealth.

Faith in healthy empowerment
is as original

ZeroZone right-brain prominent

as our first pilgrimage
from EarthMother’s womb
into this timeless light
of healthy passage
into interdependent passions
yet including autonomous
re-creative tension
promulgating win/win revolutionary intent.

Healthy intent
to see with both eyes equally

secularly Left-Either/Or
and sacredly Right-Both/And
cooperatively win/win
nutritionally strategic]

To hear
both future right-healthed
and past left-wealthed
listening with
and then speaking up and out for organic
Faith in health-power
multipoly-pathic Voices

Still wise enough
to avoid monopolizing integrity’s Light.


CoHabitating Peace

A sustained mystery for more long-term resilient cohabitation
is how to exchange high tolerance for ambiguity,
with, and not for, active curiosity about both/and ambiguity,
vulnerable dipolarity both/anding transparent bipolarity,
merging win/lose stuckness
in our emerging collective illusion
of ego-identity’s fundamental
monocultural autonomy

Autonomy of identity
as if both necessary and sufficient
before humane/divine multicultural interdependence
could grow more robustly possible,

Rather than this Other historical way around
healthy yinterdependent yindivid-yangation
prior to egalitarian sacred identity
actually co-passioning
healthy dualistic potentiality,

While still in EarthMother’s
ego/ecofeminist sanctuary
of integrity,
secular/sacred co-passioning Womb.

A more sustained mystery of more long-term resilient cohabitation
is exchanging high tolerance for ambiguity,
with, and not for, active curiosity about co-acclimating
trans-regenerations of nurturing timelessness.


Einstein Speaks

Old Albert was frustrated.

He knew his famous ego-identity came from this solar eco-system
with four interdependent dimensional voices.

He felt his own original moment began with ZeroSum nutritional balance
between eco-centered womb
and emerging ego-centered identity,

And, he felt he would soon return
to some mysterious Zero DeadZone identity
as an interdependent eco-relative inter/outer-relationship
formerly languaged
and autonomously identified organic system,

But, Albert couldn’t quite articulate
his lifetime longed for universal theory
of early interdependent metric
ecometric ego/eco-bilateral co-relativity function.

Old Albert knew he was losing his cherished mind
to dementia,
and he knew from a lifetime of deep meditation,
if he thought out loud in words
he might better remember
what he called “Thought Experiment” medications
for his universally commodified cognitive LeftBrain
and his affective effluent unitarian-flowing RightBrain

Imaging 3D spatial revolving change
in 4D temporal-fractal whole-system revolutions
of wave-linear eco-systemic childhood memories,
like co-relational DNA
bilateral internal strings
of historic trans-regenerative images
in 4D interweaving undulations of nurturing rhythm.

So, Albert mumbled to himself
in universal-stage whispers
others might hear
but not comprehend,

Not because Albert hoped to obfuscate communication just yet,
but to help his ego LeftBrain language
develop and retain what he still felt could be new re-memories
as his burning metric vocation
to resolve Earth’s interdependently fertile history
at least within his own RightBrain’s feeling
of synergetic accomplishment,

Old Albert still looked for bicameral resolution
of troubling absent complete integrity
of math and science
symmetric arts of interdependent theory
through healthy WinWin
and not pathological LoseLose language

Ancient voices of metric natured ecosystems
and isometric spiritual ego-meditations
inspired by infant memories
of some distantly not-not polynomial 4D Paradise,

Some warm wet womb
composed of dual dark fecundity
from which he had ego/eco
patriarchal/matriarchal robustly emerged

Until now
in Albert’s last organically autonomous days,
reduced to speaking his internal meditations
out loud
on his smaller ego-centered fragmentary stage voice
hoping to remember
what both his Left and Right communicating networks
used to universally and interdependently hope to become

ZeroZone potential integrity
paid forward cooperatively EarthCentric,
nutritional ego-economic synergy
and eco-empowering meditating/medicating
not ZeroSum universally interdependent
WinWin ego/eco-consciousness.

Go ahead,
Albert mumbled,
Left to silent Right dominantly-prominently interdependent,
start with classic discernment,
“If I were to die tomorrow,
what would I hope to have universally accomplished
during my unitarian ego/eco-relational life?
Whether as a professional Integral Universal 4D Designer,
or a more Regenerative EarthJustice Green Advocate,
or more of an everyday avocation,
a DiPolar CoArising Multicultural Landscaper.”

we actively hope,
after he had entirely run through his LeftBrain languaged punch list
of imaged RightBrain eco-relational ideas,
Albert may have moved on to,
“If I were to die tomorrow,
if everyone I know and love were to die with me,
voiceless tomorrow,
what would we mumbling hope to have accomplished
more articulately together
during our ego/eco-cooperatively compassionate 4D lives?”

Whether as resilient WinWin integral health-passioned landscapes,
biotic natural/spiritual ego/ecosystems,
or mere ego-fragmented
LoseLose nihilistic
economically disempowered disease disasters
having finally arrived at our LeftBrain deductively logical
tragically autonomous
self-unfulfilling ZeroSum prophecy.


Democratic Poverty

I was listening to NPR yesterday
on my way to small green group ministries,
when I heard post-millennial Republicans
favor apartheid
while the contemporary urban-green Democrat
favors laziness.

I don’t know if this includes intellectual laziness,
lack of rigor,
and laziness about ecotherapeutic health,
but in either case,
this conflicts with my own experience,
regarding Democrats and lack of healthy motivation
but also of Republicans I actually know,
except perhaps my brother
and a Trump worshiping neighbor,
regarding apartheid as a fundamental religious constitutional right
to Christian evangelical colonizing supremacy
over all 3/5th former slaves
and other less fortunate criminals.

If Democrats are guilty of lazy love for restoring Earth’s
healthy subclimates,
both yin-side
and yang-outdoor voiced,
then what do we call Republican guilt
lack of moral authority
to stop blowing each other
and trees
and Earth-habitat up,
both secular nature-systems
and sacred ZeroZone souls
of divine Matriarchal Grace.

When I arrived
to listen
and share non-verbal peaceful space
with my small green group alliance,
we sang and danced and spoke of connections
through active listening
rather than lazy lack of sufficient compassion
with suffering
and wealth of correlational enchantment
courageous coherence,
curious collusion,
collateral for healthy future prospects.

Then we each went home
in our own four directions
until we close our loops together
again next New Moon morning.
