Old Taoists Always Die

I’m a 68 year aged
ecofeminist Taoist,
Yin Unitarian and Yang Universalist
in a bicameral
dipolar co-arising
Left/Right-UnWinged EarthCentric kind of way

Where “permacultural”
presumes death
and resumes life,
both multiculturally held together
in win/win organically optimized resilience

Depolarizing,
restorative Green EarthJustice
and eco-resonant interfaith green peace
through co-passionate communication

Which was an undergraduate fascination for me
before moving on to graduate work
in public economic health administration
and, before that,
in seminary,
theologically reflecting on multicultural themes
in neuro-sensory experiences
memories
liturgies
images
icons of AnthroCentric Divinity;

A self-righteously chosen Humane Species
with a long patriarchal
predative history
of inhumane hegemony

Inspired by erupting dominance
of left-brain deductions,
either/or fundamentalistic reductions
of right-brain intuitive inductions,
both/and feelings of ambiguity
between strength of ego-political democracy
and flow of ecological interdependence,
between ego’s identity
and our win/win ecosystemic habitats
through resonant multicultural wealth

So my own healthy future
feels most likely
while swinging back and forth
in my boundary zone hammock
on my back screened porch
on this dark yet moonlit autumn evening

Appreciating an indigenous-spirited warmth
light breezed watching for stars of light
emerging through backlit clouds
from WestWind future regenerations
of Zero/One
Yin/Yang dipolar co-arising
inside/outside

Back and forth
across bilateral time-centering space
on sacred
cooperative
eco-enormous richness
in this life and death
in-between ungraduated place.

Selection Day

I find it amusing
on this empowering Election
impassioned Selection Day

To wonder why
we have bedroom communities
and yet not live and thrive communications
for eco-political dialogue,
and not so much partisan
disempowering debate,
against co-empowering governance,

Why not more nakedly
and transparently choose Win/Win constrained
depolarizing conversations?

Compassionate communion enlightenment services?

Where we democratically place
our sacred household couches
and easy co-empowering chairs
for restoring local through global peace
EarthJust inside excathedra

AnthroCentric Thrones for dogmatically unnaked shame
and absence of win/lose transparent blame,
unnaturally enspirited
degenerative straight white privileged silence

Erasing deep bed/dead inside-only room

Pandemic-Climate Health Recovery Team

In Colchester, CT,
and possibly in your town too,
we have a LongTerm ReCoVery Committee
looking at 20/20 prevision
for post-pandemic climate health revisions
for wealthy local and global EarthJustice.

So, what have I noticed
that might be economically
and ecologically win/win useful?

In a post-pandemic
post-Trump StraightWhitePatriarchal-capitalist cabal,
post-BusinessAsUsual monoculturing economic climates
of All-Or-Nothing
Either-Or
Win-Lose competitive health-care,

We over-value
fundamentally left-brain privileged subconscious
and/or unconscious bipolar Lose-Lose
absolutist
supremacist
xenophobic
anthropocentric slimates;

For sorta virally nasty primates
and for our actively curious win/win compassionate
engaged allies
restorative justice and peace mediators
co-invested witnesses
co-empathic cooperatively co-mentors?

For political,
ecological,
and possibly even win/win systematic theological,
mutual
and eco-spiritual,
physical
and metaphysical,
compassionate verbal
and non-verbal
therapeutic mediating communication systems
at our local bioregional level.

  1. Our natural and internationally commodified food
    distribution systems
    are less cost/effectively efficient
    and less environmentally friendly
    than old-fashioned
    local cooperative gardens and family farms
    organically planned
    and community implemented
    to deliver fresh locally grown
    cooperatively-owned,
    produced
    and privately
    and commercial-public
    health and wellness wealth consumed.
  2. Chronically stressed
    by social-polarized politically
    and economically divesting
    unraveling distancing,
    human nature looks for more multicultural ways
    to reconnect with nearby domestic
    win/win healthy and safer Animated Natures.

I have neighbors who had to take a number
to adopt a rescued dog.

I have neighbors whose household income is so reduced
they could afford to continue pet health care
cooperative consumer-owned insurance payments
if a local vet petcare network
with sliding fee and volunteer time-equity payment plans
were available.

I suddenly have a lot of neighbors
who are way more cooperatively invested
in the win/win companionship
of their healthy non-mask wearing dogs
and cats
than they are in masked
or unmasked me.

[Which is OK
because I’ve found myself reduced
more recently seduced
by the sexiness of a MotherTree
standing starkly now this autumn
in Her scandalous scaled
unmasked
unleafed
vulnerable
transparently communicating
nudity.]

  1. I was waiting
    at least six feet apart
    in the Goodwill line
    eighteen miles outside Colchester
    remembering a mom
    who is also an Economic Development Commissioner
    observing that Colchester lacks
    clothing
    and household goods retail
    because we are a population under-scaled,
    not yet over-infested with win/lose big-box
    retailed
    bought-and-sold
    corporate monocultural
    capitalist economic systems
    overpowering cooperative networks.

And I’m remembering
all the consumer fun I had,
when my kids were still children,
shopping in good-used consignment shops;
a more suburban version
of Goodwill
cooperative-urban.

Then I remembered Colchester,
a new location to me
moved in during this pandemic,
is quietly rural
and village bedroom community,
where sweaters
under and over my arms
wait to travel with me
to our new home;

These may well have come
from Colchester to Norwich,
waiting to travel back again.

I wonder
what it would be like
to have local clothing and household goods
shopping options while riding bike
to a local CoOp and ConSignment Shop

Where good used stuff is further discounted
for CoOp consumers and re-salers,
owner co-managers
include a multicultural/disabilities
human resource savvy
LongTerm Win/Win RePurposing Team.

  1. I also noticed
    I have become so horribly contained
    by our national and international addiction
    to win/lose partisan debates
    and vicious circle entertainments
    and mutually antagonistic
    economically viscous capitalistic political assumptions

I forget Earth’s more Whole EcoSystemic
Win/Win regenerative economics
politically empowering,
cooperatively mediating,
mentoring long-term restorative
resilient regeneration

Through Her long-term climate
of health/wealth-care
cooperative wellness trends.

I’ve been listening to local candidates
for democratically healthy leadership positions,

Noticing how many are attorneys,
trained well by and for an adversarial
self-advertising debate
left-brain dominant
punishing win/lose competitions
in eco-political
non-communicating
non-virtuously imprisoning
partisan debate

Rather than discussing
long-term reconnecting peace opportunities
for local/global
ego/eco-compassionate co-investment.

I also remember
one of many recent zooming conversations
I’ve tried not to have
since Marching 20/20

Listening to an attorney
retrained by win/win-seeking
restorative justice mediating
therapeutic process
progressively mentoring more of a deep listening
multiculturally intelligent
bicamerally balancing
good secular/sacred,
ecological/theological/neurological

Interfaith news
re-ligioning eco-political compassionate communication
for cooperatively empowering
community developing
health/wealth-care systems

And collaboratively enlightening
wealth/health care EarthJustice
local/global
poli/economic
polypathic win/win
cooperative network development.

Colchester
must already include
attorneys
and public/private health-care financial investors
and business LeftBrain dominant win/lose
non-fundamentalistic moderators,
more win/win evangelizers,
mentors anticipating other multiculturally ecosystemic thinkers
and collaborative feelers,
deductive/inductive balanced teachers and parents,
preachers and win/lose penitents
capable of 20/20 envisioning/revisioning
win/win compassionate communication

For healthier and wealthier
resilient,
indigenously and multiculturally resonant,

[post-pandemic lose/lose,
post-win/lose
anti-ecologically misanthropocentric risks]

For Long-term regenerative
health/wealth-care,
post-pandemic climate restoration

20/20 GraveYard

Robert Graves,
from beyond our 20/20 graveyard
for sinister climate climax
spoke systemically
to Washington’s Future Feelers
Mediators
ReGenerators:

That very moment,
when we chose to 20/20 see
ecopolitically empowering v pathological digestive systems

AND win/win v lose/lose
+/- power/dualdark neurologically appositional networks

AS IF one multicultural neuro-digestive
organic living (not mechanically depreciating)

digestive cause v neurological effect

Causing Either/Or

Between regenerative win/win healthy digestive memory
and degenerative win/lose chaotic dark-network imagery
mutually defining and refining
digesting and ego/eco-systemic sensory co-relationships,

Became multiculturally reperceived
as positively correlated
win/win
system-nurturing
health systemic communication
for healthy whole-systemic
open democratic bias

From that very alpha through omega theological
ego- through eco-logically systemic
metaphoric correlation
came win/lose is ecopolitically less democratically robust,
and less health and safety bicameral resonant

As compared with
win/win ego/eco-resilient
bicameral empowering/enlightening

Which also begin to unfold
reweave

LeftBrain Avatar

LeftBrain thinking,
not an avatar
of compassionately feeling
emergent healing systems,

Chilly baptismal waters
of equanimity
do not typically suggest a warm bath
in multicultural
and global
democracy.

Is it possible,
reasonable,
healthy,
therapeutic
to carry gifts of resonant love
and extend them to those
evoking a long history
of patriarchal anger
and “vengeance is capital-invested mine”
disempowering fear?

How would this,
could this,
“should” this,
might this be different,
better
than fueling codependent anxiety
without realistically anticipated reform,
curiosity with transcending cooperative courage,
win/win communication out
without
win/lose return
back in,
external faithfulness without active internal hope?

Is it possible,
and even responsible,
more or less therapeutic,
to deeply burn with anger against Trumpism,
the blind excesses of narcissistic fascism
somewhat democratically turned over to empower a fool
by a near majority of lose-ego/lose-eco ignorant voters,
inexperienced with sufficient cooperative bicameral ecopolitics
to discern enlightening differences
between democratic love
and autocratic fear
of losing face,
noble retributive reputation,
emotionally satisfying financial success
far beyond simple ecosystemic life sufficiency?

Who might we become
if compassionate patriotism
were so democratically inclusive
our object of win/win regenerate love
could settle for no less object
than sacred green/blue
yellow/red
purple/orange,
and black/white at night
polypathic
polyphonic
polynomial equals not not polynomial
democratic
sacred-secular equanimity
of rightmind equals left-embodied EarthJustice,

To be faithful
to nothing less than full EarthTribe compassion
within empowering
as without democratically enlightening.

For me,
if I can expand my sense of loyalty,
commitment,
appreciation,
love for Donald Trump,
at least as much as I fear
all the leftbrain reasons to to be angry with him,
angry about what he deliberately fosters,
angry about what has led him away from democratic We,
to the very threshold of self-righteous
inhumane fascism,
climate terrorism,
that he iconically represents,

Then I can expand into a larger picture
mirroring the loving kindness
deep learning Source
and ReSource
for all that brings us to this moment
in globally polarized Time
to find our unwinding way back
back
back

To all-embracing love
for Original enlightening
empowering
democratic
multiculturing
co-passioning SummativeSource

Of BlackHole degenerative
yet integral lives matter
splatter spacetime dances
flirting with joyful rhythms
in becoming undivided
once and twice
and thrice again

Within 4D spiraling revolutionary frames
of sacred grace,
compassion,
beauty,
serene foregiveness
for lack of history’s win/win
sin
of leftbrain win/lose thinking

Stinking
slinking lack of rightbrain win/win

interdependently viral feelings

Integrity’s Felt Promise

If I may suggest
a possible improvement
in mystic teachings
about healthy meditation experience,
structure,
discipline,
neurological
and psychological
and, in more advanced classes,
sociological
cultural
and political correctness,

I would compassionately ask
if we have not spilled
rather too much verbal ink
attending to cognitive awareness
and not enough
on affective
contextual
interdependently felt intelligence,

Distinguishing subtle nuances
ambiguity
everyday mundane in-between nest
of empowering anticipation feelings
(not merely win/win revolutionary awareness)
and disempowering darker anxiety feelings
(not just win/lose
evolutionary/devolutionary
theoretically privileged consciousness).

From What I Hear Here

What you hear
may depend on where you sit
to listen.

What our left hemispheres hear
as cross-pollinating,
redundant,
occasionally manic strings
of inbred analogy,

Between physical and metaphysical
between secular and sacred
between ecological power
and theological light
correlational relationships

Our right hemispheres
see and feel
as polypathic
polyphonic
polyvagal
bilateral metaphor

Polynomial entertaining truths
for symmetrical beauty,

Healthiest stable wealth
is impregnably fluid safety.

Please Do Panic

Writing yet another note to my straight white CongressMan,
asking him to Please, Do Panic
about all this fear-based non-legislation
undemocratic fascist
nationalistic Win/Lose evolutionary corrupt
democratic devolution
going on around
and within us,

I’m wearing a white 1970s vintage Tshirt
from Castro Street’s Don’t Panic
political resistance and celebration
apparel.

Fifty years later,
I think it is well past time
to take the cooperativist
win/win panic plunge,

With a bold
black framed message:

THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT
IS WRONG

My son’s Haitian-American nurse,
married
and straight
as a military-industrialized arrow,
without the slightest quiver
of vocalized doubt,

Sexy darkbrown skin,
greying at his wisdom temples,
and a devout capitalist 7th Day Adventist
family provider man
of second or third evangelical generation,

Wants to know
if he, in 2020,
is affiliated with what my Tshirt says
to the Religious Right of 1975.

Possibly,
but I have always known you
as part of a Spiritual Right,

Which does not
too liberally judge
outside your own sensory satisfactory experience,

And is informed
and transparently curious
to learn from your own
sensory anticipations
of healthy smells
and wealthy tastes,
what feels good
and touches right,

And to responsibly stretch
your own sensory anxieties/anticipations
without blaming
or ambiguously shaming yourself
for not accepting who you are
right now
in this life
flowing toward
who we will become sacredly together,
spiritually and naturally,
tomorrow.

Which must,
in good right faith,
inevitably become a more rooted choice
to not be some other spiritual
or anti-spiritual life,
sometimes anxious about monoculturally competing
and other times anticipating
multicultural engagement
to be most naturally/spiritually right
in the ZeroZone pocket
of just Right EarthNursing balance.

Finding right religion
in natural/spiritual sensory experience;
your own phenomenological journey
embeds our shared ontological history
of sensory
neurological reweaving
re-ligioning psychological
left/right
yang/yin ancient sensory co-arising climax
of co-awareness,
consciousness,
co-operative con-scientiousness,
Ego/Eco-Systemic Balance.

My son’s 7th Day Adventist
Black Lives Matter
Haitian-American straight male nurse responds,

“Thank you.
That’s true.”

“Where can I find this shirt?
I would like one to wear
to our church picnic.
My extended Right spiritual family
will have many paniced health questions.”

And concerns
about green democratic wealth, I add.

“And, as you say,
some surprisingly grateful
gospel faith
anticipations.”

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.

Quoting Einstein

I wonder if Einstein’s moral aphorisms,
observations about healthy inclusive values,
concern about dominant cultural confusion
between positive humane energy
and anthro-supremacist mass,

If these spacetime thought experiments
could be quoted more or less RealTime often
than metric equivalence formulas
of 3D spatial matters
spiral in revolutionary bilaterals
co-arising dipolar
YangSpace
followed and preceded by Yintegral
ZeroZone BiCameral Time

Like thymine and cytosine
in more internal Thought Experiments
about Great Transition breaths,
precessive before recessive
before reprecessive
and after prerecessive…

Inhaling precessions
toward exhaling recessions
of atomic space
predicting wave spiraling strings
of regenerative DNA
RNA
neurological binomial
double-binary
win/win
healthyYang/wealthyYin
bicameral/binomial fractal structure.

I wonder if
Einstein’s multicultural moral values
are revered
more or less
because of his eco-metric
and natural scientific
leftbrain dominant systemic articulation

Resonating warm compassion
for Green Organic Earth
seen co-arising outside and
inside Thought Experiments
with left communing right hemispheres
mutually complementary,
felt inside out again,
touched through inhale
and remembered past upside down
non-violently felt
nondualistic exhale
as well,

Welcoming
co-arising Win eco/theological nondualistic indigenous ancestors
and Win ego/ecologically balancing you, today,
here and now.
