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.

Dream Dialogue

Last night
R. D. Laing
re-searched for his original Politics of Experience.

This political research
transubstantiates through sensory-neural communion
of felt right-brain experience
re-gained through integral therapeutic re-lateralship
with MotherEarth’s here re-nowed
cooperative/competitive rhetorical events
empowering further synergetic re-search…

Then Patrick J. Deneen
responded with his strong bipolarized win/lose confusion
about Why Liberalism Failed.

Liberalism,
like capitalism,
begins left-brain dominant re-search
to transubstantiate all human/divine
secular/sacred
Left/RightWing interrelationships,

Beginning with matriarchal nutritional
warm-breasted
empowering double-bonds
of attachment/detachment,

EarthMother/Child co-depend
on communications cooperatively chosen
on the foundation of our mutual win/win service
to rational ego/eco
yang/yin
fragmentation/integration
inside/outside transactive,
left/right mutual health utility
to cooperatively grow secure liberating re-portions
of resiliently transcendent love.

Finally, couples therapist,
Dr. Sue Johnson
asked if we might all co-respond
with prejudice toward natural/spiritual attachment,
starting each warm-breasted day
with a prayer to always Hold Me Tight
in sickness and in strength
for robust wealth of health,

Through this climatic night
of re-search lights too resonantly bright
for resilient win/win soothing multicultural sight,
in ego
and out matriarchally ecological
MotherEarth theological experience

Re-stressing uncertain double-binding
ego/eco-rhetorical events,
potentially re-birthing,
re-connecting too-competitive/not-enough-cooperation lovers
anxious about angry abuse
and/or neglect through fear
of future win/lose toward lose/lose Loss,
suffering,
ignorance,
sin,
non-WinWin co-redemption

This politically experiential way
of working and playing
toward win/win cooperative relationships
not only helps humans divest of competitive win/lose patterns,
but also re-creates re-newed re-sense
of win/win integral Creation’s ZeroZone womb
of original loving interconnection

With win-win EarthMother/Infant,
Interdependent right-brain re-identity/left-brain childhood Individuation,
Sacred transcendent being/Secular becoming transactionally liberated,
Yang secure/Yin freedom of integrity’s potential

Liberally timeless rhetorical re-event dialogues
still holding us left/right re-transubstantiating
empowering sacred communion’s re-experience
of health/wealth
re-living resilience,

Polypathically co-acclimating original deep dream resonance
through transactional politics of sacred experience.

Emotional Intelligence

Glutted left-brain information media
actively hope to understand

Why does emotional intelligence
speak to egocentric concerns
of mortality and discomforting toxic defeat,
loss and difficult win/lose everyday choices
in a calming voice for unself-conscious contentment?

What is this ZeroSoul content of contentment
to feel we are right
sentient full beings
here co-present
within eternal now relationships of compassion
affiliating on this Earth
in our co-passioning interdependent webs
of health co-operative
wealthy co-investment

Without mortal loss,
suffering;
Without unwanted walls between us
and them.

Why does emotional unintelligence
speak too loudly
intolerantly
of Earth-UnCentered constant concerns
of inhumane immortal overpowers
and toxic LoseHealth/LoseWealth
RightWing left-brain dominant choices
in cacophonous dissonant voices
claiming no rights to contentedly tolerate
only healthier multicultures
of win/win emotional intelligence?

The Public Health-Wealth Dissertation

What lies closest to godliness for you?

Cleanliness/purity,

Integrity,

Compassion,

Resilient health,

Wise Win/Win wealth

Other

 

Why?

Does your answer change if the question turns to:

What lies closest to Gaian EarthGoddess for you?

If so, why?

If not, why not?

 

These questions came up as I was looking for a dissertation topic for Euclid University’s PhD in Inter-Religious Dialogue and International Diplomacy.

On Euclid’s website we read something about what this is all about:

“Interfaith diplomacy is an important and new emerging field of research, notably in view of ongoing inter-religious [Win/Lose] conflict, mass migrations [not unrelated to climate change, and trending in that further unfortunate pathological Lose/Lose direction], and grave issues related to radicalization [and concomitant economic and political concerns of growing belief and behavior and investment in apartheid, monoculturing silos, self-ghettoization, and viral tendencies toward Lose/Lose rabid climates of disintegrating terrorism, dualistic nature v spirit theologies, degeneratively entropic absence of robust cooperativity—lack of Win/Win systems thinking, integral multicultural dialogue and design—fading polycultures of democratically liberal love and economic/ecological health development through Win/Win creolization rather than more Business As Usual Western commodification of sacred, integral, holonic, nonsectarian, interdependent Earth].”

Then we can read something about why:

“Euclid’s specialized PhD degree focuses on interfaith practice and the actual application of interfaith skills in the [healthy] community [of non-sectarian, non-violent, non-partisan, non-nationalistic, non-sadistic, non-masochistic cooperative democratic discernment of Win/Win integral responses to outstanding issues seeking effluent equity and affluent interdependent systems, ecosystems, egosystems, governing systems, co-governing systems, eco-governing green systems,…], rather than the advancement of [merely] academic [left-brain dominant, commodified, Win/Lose default Either/Or competitive contradicting and dividing what God may have originally kept Both/And bilaterally bicamerally and binomially cause/effect, Alpha/Omega, Left/Right, Yang/Yin, patriarchal Either/Or and matriarchal Both/And perpetual-flowing matriarchally sacred nutritional integrity kept together for further healthy-wealth Win/Win discernment, discussion, dialogue, non-sectarian diplomacy] knowledge for it’s own sake.”

“Our program places a special [Win/Win] emphasis on contemporary Islam, Muslim-Christian [Abrahamic patriarchal cooperatively co-investing in fertile multicultural and ecologically healthy wealthy self/other-optimizing integrity, authority, responsibility, resilient Win/Win stewardship of power, light, life, economic Zero-interest smart green co-investment,…] dialogue, modern [liberally cooperative green-conservation of left/right, north/south, west/east co-dominant experiential] secularism, as well as de-radicalization [non-violent communication through compassionately resilient cooperative health-supporting words and trusted Golden Rule Win/Win deeds] and [ecologically ecclesiological knowledgeable and wise mutual-polyculturing] mediation.”

 

So, when I was invited to present a dissertation topic, I suggested:

The technology and philosophy of dialogue, diplomacy, conflict resolution, restorative justice, peace-making, non-violence, WinWin solutions, derive from philosophy, theology, natural and social sciences, and perhaps even abstract psychotherapeutic geometrics.  Rather than asking the more classical academic questions of how are these better and worse than each other, how do they differ, perhaps it is more fruitful to diversely and interdependently compare these health/pathology paradigms to search for their most resilient therapeutic WinWin communion and wealthy holonic promise?

Using a combination of Systems and Game Theory, I have a dissertation interest in looking more closely,

with a local interfaith community of ecological/theological dialogue, at any two or three of the following sources to see how their analogical mapping (Gregory Bateson, Ecology of Mind) might combine to inform a robust nonsectarian healing process for Earth’s wounded economic and political climates, natural and spiritual, secular and sacred, and how we might enter into a secular/sacred non-sectarian health-and-climate-care implementation cooperative mission for healing our local Earth, wounded plants, and EgoLeft/EcoRight

To my surprise, this Win/Win cooperatively facilitated research proposal was rejected as not germane to the purposes and implementation focus of the Win/Win Inter-Religious Integrity Dialogue and Public Resilient Health Diplomacy PhD program, with stipulated intent to remain responsive to a United Nations cooperative Win/Win Earth Health Service training project to derive the most resilient terms possible for global co-investment.

So, instead of facilitating a local inter-religious and international dialogue, which would be expensive, sacrifice some trees, burn some gas and oil, it occurred to me to invite you into an even larger community of dialogue about what are our highest public and private health priorities for multiculturally cooperative people who understand godliness and/or Gaian/Marian EarthGoddessness as at least sufficient power to intend enough cooperative integrity for generating light out of nondual darkness.

Which, on living Earth, has produced some astounding evolution of compassionate grace history, and some other, darker herstoric repressions.  Even so, we each seek to facilitate and mentor polycultural resilience, polyphonic resonance, polynomial Win/Win communication, polypathic ways, and ego/eco-centering means toward divinely-humane healthy truth of wealth-abundant beauty. Or so it seems to me, which is why my answer is:

To co-facilitate good faith integrity of Earth’s vast health/wealth potential.

Answers Without Questions

Why do answers end with answers
while questions seem to begin with yet more questions?

As a case in point…

How are the Case Studies of economic and political history
different than Einstein’s Thought Experiments?

Wait a minute…

Yes, well that’s not really a difference, I think.
Thought Experiments and Case Study expositions
both begin with waiting a minute to notice cause-effect narrative,
to decompose relationships between systemically dynamic parts.
Imagining in reverse time,
from now as cause
back toward effects
leading up to this current cause,
this current noticing,
this sometimes chaotic and unsettling waiting a minute
to notice what I am struggling with.

Why does this Case of dynamic thought exposition
feel like my important,
yet complex,
systemically dense and intricate,
hopefully even richly resonant,
question to ask,
within all the vast universe of questions
I could be investing in right now with you,
instead?

That’s more or less, probably more,
what I was trying to point out
before you interrupted me.
Isn’t our dialogical rule
also our Golden Rule?
We see richer, more fertile and optimal, outcomes,
responses to our internal Thought Experiment questions,
including our familial Dysfunctional Case Studies,
and our ecopolitical Conserve v Progress Democratic Health and Safety Case Studies,
when we begin by asking how our appositionals are somehow the same.

OK, fine.
And sorry for cutting in
when I meant to be cutting with.

Sometimes you are so fundamentalist,
so Either the Same Or Different.
By now, dearest ConservativeRight,
I would have more patiently hoped
When I ask how things are different
I really both mean to look at how they are the same and different.
So, how are Healthy Thought Experiments and Fertile Case Studies
the same?

I think we just agreed they both begin with noticing nutritional elements
and decomposing reverse effect back through potentially complex causal networks
of cooperative opportunity.

Yes, but Einstein’s Thought Experiments were metaphysical,
mathematics and unnatural science,
while Case Studies are more like watching Physical SpaceTime Reality Shows,
and Economic and Political Disaster LoseLose Devolutionary Games.

How did I know that you would respond to your own question,
about how ecological thought systems are the same,
with how they are different?

Sorry, honey,
seems to be an inductive RightBrain neglect of mine.
But, do you agree or disagree,
or both, somehow,
that Einstein’s Experiments were about metaphysical spacetime operations
while Historical Case Study Operas
are about saying and singing and dancing
actual physical and natural,
maybe even spiritual..
Wait, no, that would be over in the Metaphysics Department.

Yeah, probably better to stick to the natural realities of Earth
spawning ecological systems and cooperative thought networks.

Another difference
Einstein hoped his Thought Experiments would lead to True,
and therefore not also False,
Either/Or mathematical statements about time and energy
and the speed of light’s travel
across and through evolving and revolving appositional space.

But, when you write your Dysfunctional Extended Family Case Studies,
you couldn’t realistically hope your appositional Elite/NonElite narrative
would lead to regeneratively True,
and therefore not degeneratively False,
ecological systemic statements
about LeftEgo’s Dominating sense of time
as both positive and unfortunately too often negative-degenerating energy
and (0)-sum speed of BiLateral EnLightenment travel
across and through evolving
and revolving
regenerative health and safety space stories.

Really! Whyever not?

Because that would be confusing a LeftBrain Either-Or metaphysical thought experiment
with its appositional
NotThisEgoForm-NotThatEcoSystemic temporal-neural cooperative-nurturingflow function,
Both/And RightBrain (0)-Source
WinWin
Integral-ReGenerativity Embryonic DNA/RNA-Hypothesis.

If you say so,
but it all sounds LeftElite complex
and merely RightNonElite chaotic,
(0)-sum equivalent pay,
but still Business As CaseStudy DysFunctional WinLose,
to me.

Sorry love.
Don’t shut me down.
Just doing my LeftBrain Either/Or job.
Either Win deductive truth
Or Lose inductive notnot appositional-integrity flow.

Why is it that your EgoWin perspective
always gets the shorter definition,
while you stumble all over my WinWin NotNot way
to come up with some longer way of noticing
my nutritionally elegant nurturing Elder-ecological
health and safety lovely bilateral ways?

It’s the convex spatial Yang in EgoMe.
But, you know how I’m only at my EgoRegenerative best
when totally immersed in your BothAnd WinWin
bilaterally concave
YinYin lovely Feeling Experience
acting out ecosystemic TruthFunctional Case Studies
for BiCameral PolyPathic Love Stories.

Well, when you put it that way
you come across as less of a WinLose dominating ass,
degenerative hack writer of LeftBrain survival of the fittest;
more regenerative BothAnd RightBrain balancing thrival
of our +100%Space = (-,-) Empty-Zero fit-in-ingest integrity.

Maybe Einstein’s LeftBrain dominant
EitherSpace or Time Experiments
are metaphysically different
yet RightBrain ecologically WinWin ReGenerative/DeGenerative (0)-Soul
ecosystemic-appositional,
bilateral nondual co-arising resonant.

You’re doing it again.
That thing where you are LeftBrain explicating
while I remain RightBrain bilaterally inductive feeling-integral implicated
to somehow not really quite deductively exist
outside of timeless now.

Well, you just did the same thing.

That’s only because you have a monopoly on reductive temporal language development.

Sorry, babe,
but what else can I bicamerally do?
You smell and taste and feel just as nutritious and nurturing.

And sometimes pathological and toxic
thanks to your LeftBrain domination of ecopolitical history,
your infrequen health-nurturing matriarchal cooperative creation stories
are too often drowned out by your distorted YangEgo Space struggles against,
rather than with,
my YinYin WinWin sense of ecosystemic well-being timed Feeling Experience.

Are you feeling nutritional integrity progressive-suppressed again?

I am prevolutionarily near-diastatic,
just as you ConservativeElitist hope not.

How about if I deductively meet you half way?
Both oppositionally different
and appositionally evolving toward integrative
inductive
co-relational confluence narratives?

Now that could produce some Tipping point
conserveRight-progressLeft climate ecstatic fireworks!

You’re just teasing me, aren’t you?
This has all just been foreplay for inductive you,
to get me all WinWin bicamerally polypathic hot.
I feel so used.

Don’t pretend your co-investment in our regenerative health
and progressing future through EarthTribe babies
doesn’t like it.

Could you talk a little dirtier,
and leave out the kids part?

You mean Earthier,
deductive-inductive nurturing co-relational climaxes of nutrition,
followed not by post-revolutionary Elite/NonElite bickering,
but thriving future regenerations of optimally fertile healthywealth.

Is this a bicameral Thought Experiment we’re having
or a bilateral Case Study about regenerative appositionals
of convex EgoSpace
with concave bilateral EarthTime dialogical syntax?

Yes, baby,
bilaterally different later
if noticing our WinWin bicameral possibilities now.

Ummm.
That sounds like you’re ready
to stop noticing
and start our healthy orthopraxis?

Baby, you’re the Thought Experiment writer;
I’ve always been your LoveCase Study
of and for and through and by
SpaceTime’s co-arising nonduality.

Advent of Discernment

What would I harvest
as the moon rises
to conclude this day?

Will I hunt for the life still burning in the eyes of each person,
each living creation, I meet,
each work and play in progress process;
or divest by looking away?

Will I gather up more healthy cooperative listening
or divest of wisdom’s helping opportunity
through more self-condemning, pathologically comparative,
competitive, falling short of utopian-speaking?
Reminding myself and others
of how fragile is this ego-center,
born of birthing fears
and dying, divesting, angers.

Will I celebrate with economic and politically nurturing climates
and healthy landscapes
resolving and dissolving together outside,
where winds of fresher air may still blow
and fragrances speak of both Earth’s pristine self-governing organics
and of my, our, anthrocentric hubris?
Reminding me to be aware,
the more significant history of furture regenerational health
plays together out here,
and not inside my smaller egocentered,
household-defensive, nest
of more domesticated creation stories.

At the end of this day,
will I have invested in seeing and hearing and smelling and tasting
and feeling and thinking about our rich and deep cooperative potential
for further healthy integrity of life;
or will I have continued stuck
in looking some other depressing suppressing repressing direction?

Co-redemptive discernment,
Advent of another day,
another year,
a renewing life,
hunting and gathering light through others’ eyes,
sounds of happiness surrounding despair,
tastes of climate health
attenuated by more dissonant pathologies,
waiting, waiting
with us for this Advent healing.

Before this winter moon sets
have I harvested only a litany
of beaten down
by my condemning White
supremely patriotic
vengeful
MonoCulturing God,
struggling against my sad historic decomposition?

Yet this same truth appears much more rich
by simply, more humbly, remembering
this same Paternal God’s
maternally organic rich-Black EarthGoddess face,
for these two, Yang and Yin,
are each a co-arising nondual Janus-place
of tipping toward our richest Winter Solstice harvest.

My Advent of therapeutic purpose
is not so much to improve my skills
at predicting next year’s most important historic failures and challenges,
although that would not be a bad thing in itself,
yet even more so,
within this larger healthy Yintegrating flow,
I continue inviting EarthTribe’s daily cooperative miracles
of still-regenerating EarthRights,
inclusive of Adventurous Ego’s most abundant integrative flow.

What have I harvested
for the Advent of a healthier, and happier, tomorrow?

Singing Dance for Public/Private Health

What I care about
and what I am working
and even playing hard with
is better understanding what and how
we and Earth
communicate to and with each other,
regenerating mindbody health sometimes,
and yet degenerating pathological climates and subclimates,
gestalts,
ecopolitical chemistry puzzles and games,
systemic syndromes articulating wu wei
Tipping Points of MultiCultural ReGenerate Enthymemes.

Only up to half of effective human communication,
whether you talk or listen,
write or read,
or sing or dance or draw or sculpt or design or recreate,
or preferably all of the above,
is about word choice and language,
dialectal articulation
and successful transfer of accurately informing verbal messages
from a voice source to one or more ecosystemic receptors,
ears to linguistically and culturally hear
health v pathology of climatic autonomic feelings,
thoughts,
insights,
concerns,
prayers,
hopes and fears,
loves and angry-paranoid hates
and all complexities in-between these dipolarities of thinking/feeling.

The other half, or more, of communication and all that ecopolitical jazz
of dance and song,
is all about non-verbal context,
or/and natural climate,
or/and academic climate,
or/and political climate,
or/and economic climate,
or/and ecologically healthy historic-cultural climate,
or/and environment,
or/and medium of nature’s most regenerate messages
as positive over double-negative
double-binding eco-cosmological
Right-timeless/Left-EternalYangTime.

In communications theory,
we often focus on sight,
on what we can see of speakers speaking
and listeners listening and watching and feeling and caring, or not;
smiles and frowns
ups and downs,
happy-health and pathological down messages,
positives and negatives,
and even humors of oxymoronic double-binding not-nots
within time’s naturally unfolding logic
with analogical ego’s aesthetic mindbody live-function/evil-dysfunction,

Evilive is when light-filled healthy
and dualdark equipoise equivalently balance co-arising Tipping Points
of bicamerally balanced ecoconsciousness
transforming into a deeper, more resonate, climate potential
of and for rich-dense-harmonic-octaved positives,
as physical/metaphysical long-term trending regenerate multicultural health.

Yet communication,
as Thich Nhat Hanh observes,
is a function of nutrition and health,
and/or malnourishment and pathology,
so optimized messages
are not only redundantly heard and seen,
but also sometimes smelled and tasted and remembered
and touched
and felt
ecoconsciously and/or autonomically,
intuitively in reverse-deductive time’s enthymematic reweaving deja vu,
back to matriarchal loving womb’s non-paranoid DNA-inspired compost,
as portentious of good and bad to follow,
especially lensed-framed-calculated-climatized-hypnotized-actively hopeful for future anthro-bicameral
post-millennial
polypathic regenerations of peaceful multiculturing love.

As Earth’s clouds of unknowing
predict rains of water and light’s fertile nurturance,
predict trees with organically networking ecopolitical health-development roots,
predict an anthrocentric world of paper
predicting Earth cloud’s most viral DNA-sympathetic, non-paranoid, messages,
predicting more loving health
and less hating pathologically trending climates of devolving change,
through lack of full-enthymematic octave-optimized timelessly classic communication on our Golden Rule Tribe’s part,
especially as song and tribal 4-step danced
and hopefully as analogical/ecologically balanced nutritional poetry.

I so hope
you can and will write and sing and dance this enlightenment poem
back to me
in any polypathic dialect
we could all ecologically comprehend
as another great rich message out to fellow Earth Tribes,
We know we made this mess,
and feel really really bad about it,
but we sing and dance and ecopoliticize cooperatively
and hope to get better with this Golden Rule
of light’s regenerative fertility
through stronger yet more flexible harmonic co-arising balance.

How do you follow your ecopolitical light,
and learn from our dualdark TippingPoint shadows?
