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
wombs
root systems
eggs
seeds
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

Asked three cannibal philosophers,
named Who
and What
and Why
is eating life so bad
without smothering it in catsup?

Who is serving What
and Why
to Whom
on Earth is NotWho?
Already eaten
by re-connecting tissue issues

Do we invest in ever more and better
win/lose capital head-hunting hunters?
Playing Either/Or ZeroSum games
of deadly loss
over fulfilling and resiliently continued life together?

Or Win/Win Christian
and Islamic
and Buddhist
nondualistic nature/spirits inviting co-attachment games
for all multicultural eco-messiahs,
suffering ego-prophets re-attaching
within MotherEarth’s
bodhisattva therapeutic agenda,

Earth-serving Whom
health integrity
of Who, loving
What, co-arising
Why, redeeming life
over corrupting death.

Thriving non-cannibals
have long chosen to serve,
love,
worship polyculturing healthy Earth,
felt through all Her TribalTimes,
by not merely commodifying the calorie value of lunch,
not extracting without reparation plans,
not using without repurposing.

Gaian Hypothetical-Prophetical God
is ReCreating humane/divine co-emergent Love
fully-invested in win/win strategies and designs
without capitalistic supremacy,
without paternalistic fake ReLigion
LeftBrain too dominantly win/lose strategic
Either-In/Or-Out cannibalistic aggressions against Outs,
too competitive to respect win/win diplomacy,
too deductively dis-associated lack of empathy,
too reductive of nature to include RightBrain spiritual-inductive awareness

Resulting in rabidly chaotic lack
of eco-messianic
co-arising mindfulness
of Who serves secular/sacred EarthIntegrity,
What left/right bilateral co-intelligence could re-connect
becoming win/win Why

We struggle between fading climate health
and weathered,
inhumane,
cannibalistic-militaristic pathology.

Cannibals are those Who have no time
or patience
or curiosity
for PhiloSophias of What
Earth co-presents
and Why sacramental EarthMothers

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
wild
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
forward
onward
upward
outward
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
integrated

Polypathically not only secular,
not only sacred,
felt
hoped

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

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

Said Liberal Left secularizing mouth
to Integral Right sacred polyphonic ears.

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
future?

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
faith
love.

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
reweaving
returning
resiliently recombining
global green Body of Christ experience,
feeling,
thought,
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?
envy?
repulsion?
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,
fertile,
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,
partition,
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.

Coincidentally
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
academic
expert
sophisticated
preliminary
heuristic
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
demands
requirements
reasons
rationalizations for our neurological and psychological,
body and mind receptors
and communal DNA senders
to design
grow
evolve
recreate
re-synchronize
our self/other
ego/eco maximizing
global digestive/reproductive systems?

Green cooperative redemptive economies
more powerfully resilient
than overly competitive
burning-out
chronically-stressed
climate
monoculturing hubris systems

Geo-
and eco-
and ego-systems
absorbing healthy/toxic
redemptive/unsalvific nutrient offerings
through our sense and sensual
listening and speaking
communal organs,

From chakra karmic bottom
grace receivers and sacred givers
on up through
livers taking in and pushing out,
and bicameral hearts and lungs
breathing newborn sexless voices in
and breathing out healthy sensual reborn wounded child
warm-wombed song and dance re-memories
non-verbal then verbal,
nutritiously purposed

Connecting up sacred integrity,
reconnecting downstream secular autonomy
deep and widely satisfying dialogue
hoping for inside Apollonian
and outside Dionysian climates
of compassionate
non-pathological communication
communities
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,
sufficient,
transparent,
vulnerable for self/other health optimizing
secular left-yang nutritional strength
co-arising
wealthy sacred right-yintegral-fractal-squared-cubed exponential
DNA bilateral structured
nurture-wombing purposeful meaning flow?

4. Healthy LeftUniversal affluence
through transparent/opaque
wealthy RightUnitarian effluence?

5. Apollo
not shrugging off,
dismissing and shaming,
Dionysus?

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

7. Father God
returning
Holonic Nature/Spirits?

8. East nondualism
feeding and watering
Western dualistic wounds
between pre-
and re-embodied Spirit/Nature
and night dream polyphonic secular ZeroSouls
communicating relentlessly about
Ego’s Zero ZenCenters
healthy feeding
wounded wealthy
Blue/Green organic Philo/Sophia Wombs…

Rebirthing
Incrementally and exponentially polypathic co-passioned,
secularly and sacredly polyphonic,
polynomially interdependent,
not yet/still
non-verbing/verbal
pre/re-nouned
ex/informative polynomial,
not-not zero-polynomial,
etc.

Executive Summary:
Every thing and relationship yields to nothing
as no thing and no relationship
no time and no space
yield every thing and relationship and time
and northern/southern place
to grow and know ourselves
as also compassionate communicating Others.

Nature’s Theology

If ecology
is about right economic and political relations
between natural organisms,
and species,
and interdependent climate systems,

And theology
is about left and right
western dualistic
and eastern nondualistic co-relations
between enspirited inspiring music,
and secular muses,
and universal sacredly holonic systems,

Then why does theological Rapture
not look and sound
smell and taste
feel and think
curiously and courageously more like ecological Climax?
within internal motions
as also outside climate mentors,
voices,
passions,
imagined communions with each Other.

Depending
and co-depending
on whether breathing in western left-brain wealth
of Wisdom,
or breathing out eastern right-brain health
of humane/divine
timeless
nurturing
Light

Nature’s dual/dark
double/boundary
theology
as Energy’s interdependent
secular/sacred
health democracy.

Healthy Arts

A sometimes Yin
sometimes Yang
climate health advocate,
reading Thich Nhat Hanh,
unlyrically speaking of the Arts,
Muses of Communication,
creating resiliently wealthy Community,

S/he warmly considers
Why is such a simple book
so difficult to remember,
and breathfully incarnate?
Soaring through each chapter
for the third time
in less than an historic decade,

She notices
before “Art of Communicating”
Thich Nhat Hanh wrote
Science of “Fear.”

Fears about courageously communicating
even within our left and curious right hemispheres
about either/or
thought v feeling
dominating Western sciences
for dualistic cognitive nature v emotive spirit research
overpowering both/and Eastern acts of compassion,
compression
expansion

S/he holds these sacred communion keys
close within his vest,
listening for peaceful control
of that which leaves her
listening impassioned nest.

She speaks harmonic mantras
for love of understanding
when suffering arises
so too do fear
and stressed out waiting ominous boredom,
without nurtured lives of courage
climate planning.

Despite lapse of peaceful memory,
s/he’s more mindful now of vocational communions
in global interweaving communities
continuing resilient international health communication

When s/he practices
zen re-reads
time re-practices
curious compassions
overwhelming Western fear-filled praxis.
