Why does a powerful moment of passion,
of inspiration
often feel like need for immediate ego-expiration,
harvesting over-filled compassion?

Why a need to breathe in
followed by back out exhalation
to share, virally spread
a tool for relationship-building
through impassioned out-pathic communication?

Why does a moment of life lived fully,
ecologically co-relational,
often feel accompanied by an ego-death copay?
Theologically disconnected,
yet ecologically reconnecting
repurposing regenerations.

Why does quality of mortal health
come at quantitative cost
of immortal self-sacrifice?

Why does faith
lived fully in multiculturing community
often derive from win/lose fragmented loss
of over-powering theological confluence,

Why does
stagnant tolerance substitute for dynamic peace,
win/lose patience for win/win well-being,

Why do monotheistic aspirations replace catholic global consciousness,
and why does eternal damnation overcome timeless compassion?

Why does climate health
often feel like a reborn end
to global win/lose climates
of pathology?
Internal yin as external yang
right mind as co-present left brain
ecofeminist as non-patriarchal experience
green integrity as immortal red strength’s potential
resonance as harmonic
interdependently polyphonic as universally polypathic
past eulogy as promised future integrity?

Why mortality
of secularized, segregated ego
rather than immortality
of EarthTribe’s sacred trans-regenerations?

Why spatial polypathic quantities, degenerating
rather than
temporal polyphonic qualities, regenerating?

Why left brain either/or dominant
rather than
right mind both/and prominent
yang yintegrity?

Why zeroism’s empty future information
rather than zeroistic fully inspired past exformation?

Why depressive ego-dying
rather than impressive eco-living?


Are We Safe?

Am I safe?
Do I matter?

Are we safe?
Do we matter?

Am I sustainably healthy?
Do I resonantly matter enough?
to survive win/lose evolutionary assumptions
about history,
to thrive within win/win multicultural wealth.

According to the amygdala center
of our Default Mode Network
bicameral in/ex-formation processor,
“Am I safe?”
we originally ask of EarthMother womb,
While “Do I matter enough to survive?”
MotherEarth asks of still individuating me/we.

Climate and multicultural trends
premillennially presumed to answer “Yes!”
to both questions
optimistically predicting win/lose evolution
would lead,
through MotherEarth’s manifestly destined reach,
toward win/win Alpha/Omega Tipping Point Balance,
ZeroParadise organic zones
of multicultural design
for enriched polyculturing global outcomes.

in this post-millennial Time,
Whose mighty Yang Amygdala
does not answer these same questions
with a crippling and troubling,
dissonant “No!”?

I am not safe
from inhumane mortality of life,
for cooperatively interdependent species,
for survivable Earth history
for continuing communication,
for complexly organized organic relationship.

Do I matter?
to survival history of Earth,
to thrival win/win multicultural economies
regenerationally reborn by EarthMothers
of all colors
and stripes
and spots
haired and furred,
wooled and feathered,
shelled and fish-scaled.

Are we safe?
How deeply
and extensively
do we matter
to Earth’s living history?
to GaiaEarth’s healthy multicultural outcomes
and incomes,
divestments and investments,
detachments and attachments,
degenerations and regenerations,
entropy and energy?

Why are we safe/not safe?
How do we matter/not matter?

What is the historic significance of communication;
the multicultural transcendence of relationship?

Why are we health
How do we widely
and deeply wealth
rooted relationships?


Cooperative Play Day

Within our UU extensive family,

When did universal salvation
become uniform non-redemption?

When did worshiping Earth’s Divinity
become celebrating humanity’s Humanism?

When did unitarian win/win webs
root systems
umbilical cords of compassion’s DNA nutrition,
living forests,
dynamic oceans,
multiculturing climates,
robust atmospheres,
harmonic communions
robust re-creation stories
become smug and self-satisfied win/lose evolution theories,
supported by side by side religious walls
of mutual theology-trumps-ecology exclusion
of right-brain felt inclusions?

When will we universal-leftbrain and rightbrain-unitarian nondually notice,
Yang with Yinclusive,
EgoPatriarch with EcoFeminist appreciate,
that “ecological exclusion”,
like “military cognitive/emotive win/win intelligence”
is an extended anti-family oxymoron?
Both left-brain dissonant
and right-brain longing for resilient resonance.

When do we remember
to celebrate competitive win/lose Labor Day
by growing
and demarginalizing
cooperative win/win Play Day?


Economics: Capitalism v Messianism

Or Win/Win Christian

Are You Still Talking?

Said Liberal Left
to Conserving Integral Right,
I’m not sure why
yet you still treat win/win progressive cooperative opportunities
as if hiding a covert coven risk
of loose
loser LeftWing evil conspiring ecofeminists
struggling within a strictly secular political agenda box
of anti-white privileged patriarchy.

Said Integral Right,
to Liberal Left,
We’re still working together.
Sparring maybe,
but not really boxing,
I seem to golden shadow hear,
our reweaving seasoned win health
win wealth
secular left
sacred right cooperative
co-governing hope.

Responds Liberal Left
to Integral Right,
I thought you all were invested
in capital infestment monopoly players
in Right makes Might nationalistic Paradise,
autonomous LeftBrain RightWing win
to lose LeftWing
not ZeroSum polyculturing prominence.

CoResponds Integral Right win/win ZeroZone,
multiculturing dominance
to, and with, Liberal Left,
We sound,
to me,
in harmony.

Progressive conservants
prefer to divest of anthro-history’s
ClimateHealth kleptocracy
of inhumane toxic un-naturality.

We might depolarize today
providing a new old-designing win/win cooperatively graced day
yet not quite so much LeftBrain dominant
plowing win/lose through right of might
bipolar rutted debate paths
and sluggish streams of struggling semi-consciousness.

Said Liberal secular Left
back with Integral sacred Right,
Instead of win/lose business as usual,
we might together uncover
what we can only together rediscover
in-between renewing healthy climates,

EgoLeft inside
and EcoRight extending synergetically outside,
Reweaving win health to win wealth cooperative
co-passionate re-investments
of wealth forms
and organic health functions
in history and future herstoric restories
of culture and religion,
of deduction and induction of cognitive and emotive,
reductive fragmenting theories
and inductive fragments of climate integrity,

When yang loves not-not yin
interdependently win/win
balances health-soul inside
as wealth-nature outside
once again
polynomially languaged
and enumerated

Polypathically not only secular,
not only sacred,

Said Liberal Left speakers
while Integral Right co-passionately listened
for healthier multicultural consciousness,
pro-matriarchy patriarchy courageously felt
transparently heard

…of cats in here/now shadow boxes
extending timeless ZeroZone mortality
of identity ecopolitics
of overheated dogs in there/then races
back through not not ZeroSum…

Dear Evangelical Brother

Dear Brother,

When we were children
adults often asked us
What do you hope to be
when you grow up?

But, our brothers and sisters
were more likely,
and probably more wise,
to ask
Who would you most hope to become?
To be like?

Which implies, to my unformed ear
and eye,
Which of these adults you know,
or know of,
do you like best
as a mentor
for your own happiest and healthiest,
and most prosperous

I am about to finish reading Iain McGilchrist’s
“The Master and his Emissary.”
And, if I had known Master McGilchrist
as a sixteen year old,
I would probably have said
I want his life
and that’s the guy I want for my BigBrother!
I would be his most zealous emissary.
He’s the one I would become
just alike,
twins if possible.

Twin careers.
Twin ideas.
Twin knowledge and wisdom.
Twin naturality and spirituality
and natural law
and ordered sacredness,
emotionally intelligent communion.

But, that was then
and this is now.
And I wonder if I ever asked you,
not what kind of evangelical Christian
white privileged Western capitalist
doctrinaire thing do you hope to proficiently do
when you finally grow up?

But, instead,
to find the courage to ask you
Who would you,
embodied in Christ,
become like
when you are suffering servanting
in your thirties?

We might have had a lifelong dialogue,
not about creeds and dogma
and theological departures from win/win co-redemptive
cooperative economies,
compared to win/lose capitalist business as secularly usual,
compared to lose/lose degeneratively devilish and bearish economies,
more disempowering long-term climate trends
than empowering hope

We might have thought out loud together
about how Suffering Public and Private Servants
are like a Messiah
like a Bodhisattva Peace Warrior
like a PermaCulture CoOperative Designer
like a Restorative Justice and Win/Win Peace Advocate
like a Green STEAM architect,
a resilient engineer,
or prolific teacher
and skilled listener,

We might hope to combine
gospel references to right-hemisphere Revelationary Sacred Rapture
and healthy left-hemisphere climate preferences
for Evolutionary Secular Promise,

A promised return to sacred/secular
RightWing and LeftWing
become whom we would most like to hear
as faithful health scientists and wealth musicians,

Disciples of sacred wealthy
best means secular healthy
reborn again
resiliently recombining
global green Body of Christ experience,
optimally appealing.

I’m sorry for not asking
how I could be a healthier and wiser
gay Christian-Taoist-ZenBuddhist-Native Nature/Spirit Wisdom
inspired and inspiring
younger brother,
more sure with your trust
and inner truths
than without you.

I’m sorry distant homophobic fears
and perhaps anger?
fear of predation?
(this part remains unclear)
seem to have kept us from mutually asking,
Who would we most like to become like together
when we are in our sixties
and seventies?

And now,
When this question seems more plausible,
and immediate,
I wonder how different, and yet the same,
are our opportunities to experience
this sacred potential
for re-creating loving Earth, together,
healthiest wealth of HolySpirit embodiment
celebrating Her sacred historical birth Brother,

Unlike Jacob and Esau,
reconnected by sacred Matriarchal Wombs
culminating in reborn virginal brothers
saved/not-not saved from lose/lose perdition,
through both universal-human/unitarian-divine
natural Messianic win/win Spirit,
consiliently sacred,
resiliently secular,

Heavenly stardust Fog
embracing global oceanic dark waves,
currents of timeless
flowing potential color and multicultures,
rhythms and patterns and flow designs,
Living Waters,
truth with trust,
Wombs with Ways toward necessary Light,
nights and co-redemptive days

More WiseElder for sinister sacred Right retributive Judge
and golden secular Left restorative Advocate,
still listening compassionately together,
less fundamentally apart,
with good evangelical humor,
more than bad.


East Meets West Association

The East Meets West Philosophy Association
had their annual 2020 conference in Rio,
when and where anything multiculturally lusty
is more likely to happen,
especially between sunset
and sunrise.

and existentially
and phenomenologically
and ecologically
and ethologically
and epistemologically,
and astrologically,
and metaphorically,
it was necessarily
and sufficiently
and justly
and truly
and trustingly at dawn
on a sweltering Saturday morning
that their Friday night communion commencement started
a revolutionary new/old system
of rhetorical left/right questions,
meant to impress
more than depress
future polarized regenerations
and generations
of trans-regenerative Philo/Sophias.

These renewed professional
yet uncompromised consensual issues:

1. What if Earth’s primal meaning
is most satisfactorily
and usefully
and beautifully
and healthily
and resiliently found,
in deep bicameral learning
how to optimize our already co-present regenerative systems?

2. Would co-passions deductively
and inductively
and seductively
and reductively,
but not unductively,
co-arise non-polarizing suggestions
rationalizations for our neurological and psychological,
body and mind receptors
and communal DNA senders
to design
our self/other
ego/eco maximizing
global digestive/reproductive systems?

Green cooperative redemptive economies
more powerfully resilient
than overly competitive
monoculturing hubris systems

and eco-
and ego-systems

redemptive/unsalvific nutrient offerings
through our sense and sensual
listening and speaking
communal organs,

From chakra karmic bottom

livers taking in and pushing out,
and bicameral hearts and lungs
breathing newborn sexless voices in
and breathing out healthy sensual reborn wounded child

Connecting up sacred integrity,
reconnecting downstream secular autonomy

hoping for inside Apollonian
and outside Dionysian climates
of compassionate
non-pathological communication
co-arising polypathic secular Philo
polyphonic sacred Sophia communion.

3. How might we,
together more than apart,
make the second non-question,
and endlessly unfinished life opportunity,
much shorter,
vulnerable for self/other health optimizing
secular left-yang nutritional strength
wealthy sacred right-yintegral-fractal-squared-cubed exponential

4. Healthy LeftUniversal affluence
through transparent/opaque

5. Apollo

dismissing and shaming,

6. Taurus Earth
Aquarian Dawn’s Promised Land with Waters?
(Too lusty, perhaps.)

7. Father God
Holonic Nature/Spirits?

8. East nondualism

and re-embodied Spirit/Nature
and night dream polyphonic secular ZeroSouls

Executive Summary:
Every thing and relationship yields to nothing
as no thing and no relationship
