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.

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

Deep Listening Communions

“The deepening perception
of the body’s illusory nature
is one of the most profound
and inspiring realizations
we can have
to help us let go [of dying bodies and minds].

Deep listening
of our mind’s transition-illuminating
flowing nature
is one of the most profound
empowering
enlightening
and inspiring spiritual realizations
we can have
to help EarthTribal cooperative awareness
grow

To help us globally commit
to let go of egotistic
narcissistic
anthropocentric privileged images
of our monotheistic
all powerful, so inhumanely disempowering,
all knowing, so win/lose transcendently inhumanely
unenlightening dark energy,
straight white patriarchal privileged
GodImaged Language
devoid of resonance with my own personal
intimate spiritual inside voices
deep listening to my interrelated multi-regenerational experiences

No longer severed
dissociated
ignored
neglected
wounded
apart from my
and our
cooperatively-held bicameral communication
spiraling reiterative
redundantly revolutionary
bilaterally polypathic
binomially polymathic
polar polyphonic
sensory awareness

That belief in changing
choosing
planning win/win robust multicultural traditions
is a healthier transparent and vulnerable
communication polyphonic frame

And wealthier lifetime way
empowering truth
enlightening life
than further over-investing
in yet more business as usual
left-hemisphere dominant
stuckness in unchanging Either/Or degenerative
monoculturing
dying
fading toward ego/ecosystemic
viral and rabid Lose/Lose Earth
AND Earth OrganicTribe
and EgoIndividuating
unhealthy
unwealthy
fading sensory
disebodied
desensitizing
absence of resilient sensory-systemic
natural spiriting
regenerative health inspiraling
communal deep listening lives

More powerfully light
than over-emphasis
on ego-privileged lose/lose death
through slow
and painful
eco-political monoculturalism
patriarchalism
capitalism
corporatism
colonizing predation,
systematic and strategic
left-brain rationalized
racist and sexist and against trans-multicultural sensed health
exempted from anti-win/win GoldenRule
retributive unjust systemic
humane-ego/divine-ecosystemic
dualistically excused
disconnected
un-religioned
secularized
commodified
enslaving
eco-politically addictive
win/lose cynical
narcissistic
anthropocentric
either/or thinking
and not feeling remorseful about
further future generational seeds
of climate
and monocultural
pathological predation.

This deep listening perception
of the body’s intimately felt
non-verbal communication
spiritual nature
is one of the most profound
and inspiring,
empowering
and enlightening,
ecologically natural
and polypathically spiritual realizations
we can have
to help us let go
of win/lose eco-political debates

To grab hold
of more lively
and playful
win/win discussions
dialogue
discernment
co-investment
empowerment
systemic enlightenment.

Healthy Life v UnWealthy Death

In the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying,
Sogyal Rinpoche writes, unconvincingly,
to my left-grained dominant ears,

“No suffering,
however dreadful
[and even mortal]
is
or can be
meaningless
if it is dedicated
to the alleviation
of the suffering
of others.”

This abstract act of “dedication”
sounds suspiciously left-engrained
global monoculturing dominance
to me,
Looks like over-rationalization,
denatured theory of hypothesized sublimation,

Feels like arguments
for a spiritualized view of
disemobodied “sublimation” of sexual desires
that would merely replace,
by act of superego-divine willpower,
one disconnected set of sensory attractions
for another.

As if left-preyed reason
could control our natural
and spiritual flow of hormones,
the multicolored elixirs of right-trained connecting
and disconnecting feelings.

Anyway,
[kinda got lost in my analogy
which is more of a right-strained metaphoric
metphonic
polypathic
polyphonic non-verbal search for felt connections,
primal reconnections
preconnections
unconnections
co-relations
positive and negative
attachments and aversions
empowerments and disillusionment],

I can imagine:

No suffering
loss
humiliation
excommunication
death of organic
left-prayed dominant EgoSystem,
however dread-filled,
is
or can become,
meaningless
if this event
can be connected,
and constantly reconnected
to enlightening
and thereby empowering
the alleviation of Others
ecosystemic suffering
loss
degradation
disconnection
apartheid,

Death of an organic
right-light prominently absorbing
Whole Open EarthSystem
of spiraling
revolving
Life and Death

Reweaving
ReGenerations,
MultiRegenerations,
InterConnections
of life systemic
sacred Power

Secularized Light,

BiLaterally resilient
Positive Universal-Unitarian
Strong-InterFlowing
Yang-Yin Energy,
BiCamerally Bright.
