Following Our Rules

In our Sharing Circles
we have a ground rule
to share a one speaker at a time floor
and unitarian silent listening support

And rules to not verbally share uninvited commentary
suggestions
agreements or disagreements
during, and after,
this formalized Circle.

Speakers are invited to share from experience only,
not from someone else’s story,
experiential and/or theoretical,
parental and/or academic,
personal and/or professional.

This is a Closed Circle
of verbal communications,
a rhetorically autonomous inside job
only silently noting our egalitarian
nonjudgmental
side by sideness
of authority
responsibility
compassion;

Help,
Thanks,
Wow!;

Truth,
Beauty,
Silent Passion…

If we are a composition,
we enter an historic symphony of solo voices
implicitly singing our universality
experiencing time’s nurturing
and severing qualities
and relentlessly insufficient quantity,
except when anyone else is speaking
business as too coldly
or too warmly
usual.

In our Reading Circles
our implicit ground rule culture differs
more in favor of the spontaneous spoken word,
this good news,
extemporaneous,
and bad fake news,
distemper-odious,
gospel we scribe together,

Usually one voice leading
a sustained melodic theme,
sometimes harmonic and splendid,
sometimes dissonant and diminished,
inviting in compassionate responses,
major and minor,
listening for counter-melodies,
for analogies
metaphors
curious oxymorons,
outrageous internal pun fun,
rhymes
and maybe the occasional reason,
held with soft determination
and not hard determinism.

Participants are invited to share
harmonic voices of MeToo
and to gently question why
my own dissonantly deviant choice
traps me in feeling detached,
uncertain,
less certain,
more certain we must be missing
some counter-balancing dirge of risk
and full-circle opportunities
for evolving peaceful revolutions.

We sing in Open Circle rounds
of theory meets experience
greets political philosophy
and primal attachment theory
applications to all relationships
ego logical and unlogical and anti-logical
and dis-passionate,
conscious and unconscious and suppressed consciousness
and more dispassion,
and ecological and ecosystemic
and healthy climate logical
for growing reading circles
into speaking and listening communion rounds
of timeless symphonic conversation,
dia-logos about favored/unflavored mythos.

Cooperative conveners
encourage each other
to speak from felt experience
of belief and disbelief
in some published teacher’s expression of experience
with timeless patience and time-heavy impatience,
of joy and sorrow,
courage and curiosity,
compassion and dispassion,
intimacy and repulsion,
about some subject’s story,

Where it does and does not meet our own time
chosen and not chosen
political and personal
economic and ecological
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
regressive and progressive
inhaled and exhaled
patriarchal and matriarchal
competitive and cooperative
vulnerable and transparent
longing and belonging

New yet old
wealthy when healthy,
democratic when not kleptocratic,
integral when not fragmenting,
unitarian when not too universally closed
to further sacred gospel co-inspirations,
co-passion,
co-presence,

Timeless unity
yet eternal open university,

Secure rounds
yet within freeing surrounds,

Cultural sweet spots
within historic raw plots.

Climates of Despairing Rapture

Imagine you
and I
are rightbrain impressed
with each Other
as also integrally
spiritually shared emoting parts
of One noetically graced BicameralHeart
together,
pumping in and out,
left and right,
nutritional lifeblood.

Suddenly, or was it gradually?
we become aware,

“I have lost my leftbrain objective
to share with you
something I had just felt passionately about
and I so hoped you would too”
If we could only cooperatively explain it just right,
in a healthy, noncompetitive
way.

Perhaps I vocalize my cognitive/emotive dissonance
at this impasse
in our verbal communication,

“I think one of us,
(so both of us)
has forgotten what I hoped
we might enlighten together
through some sacred communal verbal experience
of leftbrain curiosity
and rigfhtbrain courage to vulnerably risk
to win/win cooperatively commit

To both deduction and induction values
to passion and integrity cultures
of health and not not regenerate wealth
to history and future multiculturing renaissance,
to health-bound thoughts
and non-pathologically hidden feelings
of cooperatively passionate integrity freedom
learned from Earth’s ecofeminist prominence
for long-term nutritional security
and not past win/lose devolutionary mendacity,
felt as Earth’s final egocentric
cynical
lose/lose nihilistic unfree market captivity,

As deep learned
in liberal re-creational win/win compassionate arts
and Earth producer/consumer health-sciences

Feminist TaoCulture

RightBrain culture
absorbs and heals
LeftBrain monoculturalism,
capitalism’s win/lose unholy market-structured days
and commodified aggressive nights
pursuing lose/lose fear v anger competitions.

RightBrain multicultural invitations
whisper nutritional health climates
longing for explicit win/win language
to express belongings inside climates
of nature/spirit co-opportunities.

RightBrain polyculture
resists militarized punishing States
and unfree capitalized infamy
Western monopolized white male privileged markets
addictive transactions
enslaving detached unemotional commodification
of people
planet
plants
populations
priorities
predators
prey
places
properties
plans
disregarding health care
climates of cooperative giving
as compassionately receiving.

RightBrain culture
denies we all belong bought and sold
in a win/lose nationalistic competitive market.

RightBrain anti-LeftBrain dominating militarized culture
invites re-attached
re-personalized commitments to each other
in holistic names for Earth
and Her Sun
and GrandMother Moon’s lunar inspirations.

RightBrain polycultural networks
do not reductively function
to secure nation-privileged markets
supporting merely abstract,
detached
lack of freedom
to trust Nature with Spirit
primally secure co-liberations
of co-passionately listening love.

RightBrain cultures
impassion with and for
delighted LeftBrain less ego-consumed
reductive
deductive

Love of Earth History

Love of history
commences a health and pathology journey
toward totalitarian terror
and unitarian awareness,
fragmented numbness of prey
and integral consciousness
of co-empathically benign predators
casing out

Framing one Earth-rhetorical spiraling event
within which herstory
of commodified
and domesticating victims
remains too unlargely untold
to optimize healthy climate trends.

Each spatially boundaried community,

and what would a multiculturing organic community become
without an unstable, yet robust, boundary?

Hey,
knock it off,
you’re messin’ with my flow…

Each spatially boundaried community
and each temporal regeneration
is a revolving rhetorical event,
often oscillating between left-brain dominance
through predative dualism,
detachment,

From right brain herstoric
domestic security prominence
and ecofeminist patrol,
praying for secular/sacred nondual matriarchal awareness,
co-passions yang and yin restoried,
virtue valued,
and not so much viciously devalued

Historically between RightWing loyalist redcoats
and LeftWing patriotic bluecoats,
compassion constitution composers
scripture writers and healthy wealth translators
speakers and listeners
patriarchs and matriarchs

Contrasts between economically privileged protectionists
and eco/theo-logically co-empowered
egalitarian liberationists.

Each story
novel
poem
life
year of mutually regenerating health seasons,

Each predator/prey
healer/habitat-habitual-healing day,
each dream
each image
each memory
each memory of a fading feeling-thought
a rhetorical historical event
which begins with noticing a spiritually developing subject
and our objective natural stage

Earth framing sacred reverence
revering historical political egos
in our economic ecological win/win health habitat,
this primal evolving compassionate consciousness
communing between self today
and other
yesterday’s tomorrow now

Choosing primal graced win/wins
and, when confronted, often settling for win/lose,
left or right,
ego or eco,
self or other,
humanity or divinity,
Either/Or or Both/And
fragmentation or contrasting mutual sublimation,

And, when defeated,
tolerating detached nihilistic lose and lose,
left and right,
ego and eco,

If not yet totally planet
and people
and plants
and soil
and water
and air
dead today,
all that much more likely to collapse tomorrow.

What good is an objective ego
without even one subjectively sympathetic eco-stage?

Who could invent humanity
without first feeling historic divinity?
CoPassioned attachment as ancient as umbilical cords
and DNA strings

Herstoric strands of historical win/win rhetorical events
take the epic story
and globally interdependent changing web of life
protracted
stretching out regenerational identity
eager for exploring
curious perennial attachments to past
seasons of generations
and future potential integrity
of well-timed space place
in-between left and right co-rhetorical events,
changing herstoric bilateral story

Veering away from lose/lose
irrationally feels and feeds chaos
entropically off
into dual dark dispassions

Wondering how such an unlikely rhetorical
natural
spiritual event
as Earth’s curious history
could have ever not not become
wealth of health’s inter-grateful
DNA/RNA structures
staging spiral/fractal
spirit/natures feeling rhetorically
dialogical potential,

Polypathic
polyphonic
polynomial
and not not polyculturally neurological
psychological
ecological
theological
health-logically resilient
resonant
restoring
reweaving
reversing
preversing
persevering history
courageous
curious
co-passionate bicameral herstory

When and where eternally resilient eco-life
is also not not timelessly
breathlessly compassionate ego-death.

Changing Thought Systems

It is known throughout Earth’s anonymous
unanimous Commons,
Systems are hard to change.

The more macro-competitive,
Yang-strong,
The more difficult of all conversion stories

Over pernicious decades,
We tend to add “isms”
to pathological ends
of these global systemic issues.

This polyculturalistic/multiculturalism suffix,
negative appendage,
suggests a pejorative problem
of systemistic stuckness,
where once may have lived
a potential for positive
polypathic and polyphonic change
toward Earth’s greener,
more flexible,
Commons.

Ism labels warn of possible toxic contents
including racism,
of course,
and white privileged patriarchalism.

These two appear to be old friends,
as do colonialism
and Catholicism
and globalism
and monotheism,
often hiding diverse and sundry mob-rule
in sinister shapes
of secular poly-tickle-listic hyphenated atheism.

Other systemic cousins
on my networking mind
are liberalism
and capitalism
and communism
and socialism
and fundamentalism
and dualism,
separating spiritual development opportunities
from natural undevelopment risks.

Sometimes, though,
usually when I am not in crisis
but feeling emotionally vulnerable anyway,
I wonder if these impenetrable global
and nationalistic
systemic issues could call out
and in
for healthier cooperative thinking.

Not a direct assault on,
most certainly not a war against,
exterior competing systems,
But a more indirect dialogue
inviting a change in individual
and familial
and indigenous communal thinking
about win/win systems.

This cooperative bilateral thinking
scientists have labeled systemic thinking
and multicultural artists have seen and heard
smelled and tasted
touched and felt
sung and danced
as Earth ecosystemic feeling of interdependent living

Organic
integral journeys toward global meta-systemic utopia,
where naturally perfect systems thinking
syncs with
spiritually pure communion feeling.

For example,
patriarchalism becomes,
in this explicit in-between double-bounded way,
not only a chronic risk to Earth’s survival
but also an immediate everyday opportunity
to imagine aloud,
to touch with voice and hand,
to walk boldly, sometimes baldly, with feet and mind

Into a ZeroCore place
where two or more overpowering competitive Yangisms
might change evolutionary to revolutionary directions,

Directions revolutionary to evolutionary change might
grow toward one or less
matriarchal cooperative ZeroZone
of Yinistic integrity
for rebirthing regenerational
resilient
resonant happiness,
healthier nests,
wealthier eggs,

Synergetic seeds, all about potentiating possibilities
integral-spiritual
bilateral-fractal DNA discernment systems
thinking about what we are more health-cooperatively feeling

Change for wealthier harmonic becoming ecofeminist
less patriarchal,
so more yang-enthusiastically matriarchal.

Within these boundaries of vulnerable dialogue,
what have appeared to be static constipationisms,
mutual opportunistic issues,
also feel unveiled yin-flow nutritionistic
toward cooperatively appositional opportunities
to feel internal spiritual transactions,

Transubstantiations,
transliterations
into natural potentialistic,
not so much transcendently spiritualized isms,

Instead, macro-global systems
of Yang’s golden meta-health network
polypaths traveled,
Polyphonically felt absence
of perennially unfree spiritualisms,
primarily and primally due to a collective change of nutritional thinking
in systems growing healthier.

Cooperatively realistic lives
more powerful than competitive unreal estateisms,
acquired ownership of ismic properties
impregnably fragmented plots
and states of suspiciously marginal boundaries

By left-brain dominant apartheid thoughts
overpowering right-brain co-prominent organic nurture-systems
feeling
touching realistic baptismal waters plenty warm
and not yet boiling over power.

More transystemically webbed
natural spirits
than monoculturally walled

Nature against
co-passioned spirits
with ecological/theological integrity
changing meta-thought systems
felt as holistic networks for well-being.

Exhaust

Asking why our partisan democratic experiment
appears to be
failing feels like asking why our global climate
appears to be
failing feels like asking why old age
appears to be
a failing.

Political minds,
natural bodies,
spiritual individuals
reflecting upon lose/lose thought and felt
tragic and absurdly nihilistic outcomes
where we originally expected win/win Paradise

Found in what is personal and political
and economic re-investment
in health and/or pathology choices

Earth and/or extending families center
toward more health
to also win wealth of yin-flow
potentiating powers slowing down
to process Business As Failure Usual,

Winning capital-monopolized shadow-wealth
to win unhealth of evermore
isolating Yang-strength
to overpower
where matriarchal/child love re-memories
could only empower with hugs
and songs

While asking
why our partisan democratic win/win experiment
in win/lose competitions
appears to be lose/lose
Failing feels like asking why our global climate
appears to be
Failing feels like asking why
old cooperatively-owned communal age
appears to be

Natural Tea Intelligence

“Nature yields to artifice,
not artifice to nature.”
Iain McGilchrist

Winning yields to lost and last identity,
not ego-loss to healthier winnings,
more ecosystemically robust.

LeftWing values for transparent
inclusive
democratic rights
more than royalistic wrongs,
yield to RightWing
nationalistic
white supremacy,
not artifice to integrity
of healthy climax powers.

Integrity yields to dualistic mendacity,
not artifice to InTegriTea,
seasoned by and with Earth
Mothering experience,
memory,
longing,
promise,
passion…

Embracing compassion yields to anthro-hubris snarcyschism,
Win/Win gives out to Lose-society/Lose-individual
divided cynicism,
not Lose/Lose mendacity
found in TegriTerrestrial Tea.

Drinking inTegri Tea
is a wonder spatial
awesomely timeless temporal
way to set aside sufficient Right
over not enough Left time
to communion within
and out our perpetually migrant sensual selves.

When I drink in TegriTea,
I only drink ego’s eco-integrity.

I don’t need to think
about tomorrow’s objectives
but also feel with fellow-migrant in TegriTea subjective
workers yielding to co-players,
mentors yeilding emotive facilitators
of compassioned communication.

I can stop all my alien divestments
while I drink in TegriTea.

When ego stops disembodied abstractions,
I can double-bind eco-attending
in natural/spiritual TegriTea.

There and here
only InTegriTea’s vast watering potential.

Here embodied
and Now timelessly temporal
is only we/me
in TegriTea
co-passionate inspiraling

Between me
and Inte-gritty
natural/spiritual
outside/inside connection,
re-connecting soil and soul.

I don’t want or need a cell phone
or computer
or even language
to watch and listen in TegriTea’s communion.

In RightWing dominant fact,
because I’m not emotionally speaking,
I can wealthier track
within this co-passioning in TegriTea

Ego breathes in,
I am aware inTegriTea’s fragrance
is here,
Ego is aware
my RightWing dominated body
smells in TegriTea feeling
and I’m eco-aware
that passion’s passing InTegriTea
grows healthiest
in resilient HereEmbodied
Now in TegriTea.

“Drink in TegriTea!”
invites a ZeroSoul Zen command
to bring me back
to our true
and trusted EarthMother wounded womb.

Don’t just think about and around
emotionally intelligent communion.

Be Here embodied
Now minded,
climate united in TegriTea.

I am trusting
this vortex time is by climate invitation
and not by paranoid
absence of co-present passion.

I am not yet a spiraling shadow;
I am embodied health
in TegraNation process,
and Earth outside knows
and inside feels
rations and reasons,
loves and passions

This Here/Now
a bilateral vortex in TegriTea’s cup,
deep and yet wide
yang and yet yin binomially stretched out
and down,
north
and south,
west
and east,
right
and left out
and in my tea-washed
tea-fueled
tea-nourished
tea-nurtured
in TegriTerrain co-passion,
spatial spiraling Wonder
returning hiccup in timeless Awe.

LeftWing green nature tea
yields reluctantly
to RightWing disembodied
spiritualized fake-zeal,
not RightWing unhealthy secular artifice
to LeftWing sacred health,
liberally sacred loving
liberate ionic
ironic
iconic IntegriTease’
emotionally intelligent Nature

Yields to artifice,
not cognitive artifice
to sacramental Nature.

Note: Originally inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh’s “Drinking Tea in Mindfulness,” pp. 149-50, The Art of Communicating​.
