What I Want

What I want,
probably need,
from people of compassionate
active
positive faith
in sacred covenants
in healthy energy democracies,
in cooperative co-empathic learning systems:

Integrity,
Impressive co-investments
rather than depressive divestment,
Integral cooperative ownership
more than autonomous competitions,
Intimately transparent management
stewardship
facilitation
multiculturally vulnerable mediation
among and within Earth’s holonic
holy
living webs of compassionate communication,
energy,
bicameral healthy/wealth

Intelligence, cognitive and affective,
deductive and inductive,
individual and contextual,
ego and eco,
left and right hemisphere nonduality
co-passion
co-invested balance in harmony
polypathic synergy
polyphonic
creolizing polycultural
polytheistic cooperative underlying values
for democratic global health
as EarthWealth

Is what I want,
intrinsically
intuitively need,
from people of compassionate
explicitly active
positive faith in sacred covenants,
in health-energy democracies,
in cooperative
co-empathic
deep learning communication systems.

What Is Love’s Difference?

What is the difference
between an anti-theist
and a pro-humanist?

What is the difference
between a terrorist
and a terrific zest?

What is the remainder
when subtracting NonZero-Sum WinWin EarthBodied outcomes
from Zero-Sum WinLose capital incomes?

Why do
Permaculture Designs
and Restorative Sacred Justice Resolutions
share the same healthy wealth goals?
If they do,
and why don’t they,
if they don’t?

What is the health value comparison
between competitive LeftBrain dominant educational disciplines
and cooperative Right/Left predominate deep learning co-invitations?

What is the therapeutic value
noticing differences between invidious comparisons
and virtuous contrasts,
between bipolar oppositions
and dipolar co-arising appositions?

What is difference
and sameness
within non-violently healthy communication
and compassionately wealthy co-empathy?

What are cooperative tipping point systems
in-between ecological LeftBrain health-cultures
and theological RightBrain sanctuary climates?
Between secular
and sacred,
nature
and spirit,
exhale
and inhale,
compete against pressure
and cooperate with atmosphere?

What is the difference
between a win/lose agnostic
about Earth’s sacred integrity
and a Win/Win bicameral humanist
within Earth’s health-optimizing
revolving
returning
recycling
repurposing
reweaving
redeeming
resonant
resilient
regenerative synergy?

What is cooperatively owned
pantheistic DNA
and profoundly democratic-trust energy,
bicamerally trans-humanistic,
polyculturally self/other empowering,
Win/Win co-investment
in wealth of health nutritional
bio- and geo-systems,
ego- and eco-therapeutic networks
yang- and yin-healing operations?

Keeping Healthy Hearts

I see and hear a great overlap between
left-brain dominant education,
straight white male privileged political power,
and capitalist win/lose
Elite ballistic gamesmanship.

But, as importantly,
what do you hear
see
feel
believe about ingredients for healthy democracy
and for degenerative
fading public health
and competitive uncivil miseducation?

I have been listening,
sometimes with active curiosity,
sometimes with excruciating patience,
for what we will do
to make Earth healthy again,
to make these United States wealthy again
and not quite so depressing and angry and narcissistic,
to make my family life happy again,
to make my ego more resiliently compassionate again.

I would love to clearly hear
to more safely see
to warmly feel
your vision of local economic
political
public and private health,
your dreams of everyday
ecological and/or theological Paradise.

Meanwhile
I have been writing my dreams
and visions.
These are times of longing
but also imagining radical
and profound belonging,
green communion,
cooperative democratic ownership
and mutual non-violent management,
co-responsive, positive correlational, administration,
compassionately responsible civility,
regenerative win/win civic duty
that feels safer,
warmly sufficient and more significant,
transparently known and knower of more neighbors
including our Elder Trees,
GrandMother Moon cycles and recycling nutritional systems,
Father Sun’s enlightenment,
EarthMother’s cooperative empowerment,
EcoFeminist co-investment.

I wonder if
you might enjoy reading these dreams
of a time when we are not judged
by the color of our skin
or by who we love,
nor even shamed
and/or blamed
for those we can but hate,
who feel too full of themselves
to gracefully tolerate.

I have been noticing
how stuck in a viral climate of anxiety
I feel
while haunted by the first lines
of an “If” poem
(Rudyard Kipling?)
my third grade teacher
knew we must all memorize

“If you can keep your [dream]
when all around you
are losing theirs
and blaming it on you…”

I’m wondering if you,
too,
feel this is our first step
toward climate health,
compassion therapy,
non-violent communication,
cooperative co-investment,
resilient and robustly wealthy democracy,
to share our new
and old green deal dreams
as tools for NonZero Sum imagination
and not weapons
for perpetuating competing ZeroSum fears,
divestment away from NonElite species,
spirited forms of warmly humane nature
win/win revolutionary
when not so much LeftBrain Win/Lose
devolutionary.

I so hope
you will write down and out
to share your green
and full ultra-nonviolent dream with me,
so we can see
which are light
and which are dark,
first steps for us to decide
bicamerally thought
and felt,
bilaterally well fed
mountain peaks of passion
and river valleys of healthiest pleasure.

Dreams of running together
on a Health Platform;
healthy democracy
for wealthy economy
for healthy ecopolity
for wealthy democratic energy.*

 

*Energy Democracy: “…is a way to frame the international struggle of working people, low-income communities, and communities of color to take control of energy resources from the energy establishment–the large corporate energy producers, utility monopolies, and federal and state government agencies that serve their [corporate] interests–and use those resources to [non-violently] empower their communities: literally (by providing energy), economically, and politically.” p. 196, The Community Resilience Reader, edited by Daniel Lerch, Chapter 11 “Energy Democracy” by Denise Fairchild and Al Weinrub

Some of us, sometimes known as Permaculture Designers, would further extend this frame to the global climate struggle of all living creatures and systems, non-elite communities, communities of capital divestment.

New Year’s Recycling Journey

Stepping into a new year,
especially one calling for 20/20 revision
reform
not retribution for anger’s past
but restoration of WinLeft/WinRight bicameral sanctuary,

Stepping into a new ZeroZone Asylum,
positive deviance from leftbrain competitions
deductive,
predicting reductive,
business as usual.

Positive left/right harmonic deviance
invites cooperative resistance
against a shared predative,
light-skinned,
patriarchal,
hopelessly heterosexual privileged enemy
of all the non-elite people
emerging from leftbrain dominant climates
of EarthTribe colonization,
extraction of life,
enslaving monopolization of body-power,
abuse,
disembodied neglect,

Shared asylum against negative lose/lose nihilism,
fake elitist monotheistic Rapture,

Against positive win/win passion,
compassionate communication,
ego/eco left/right yang/yin bicameral therapy.

Stepping into this NewYear ZeroZone
can be yet another
in an undistinguished
degenerative lose/lose series,

Lacking 20/20 sensory-neural
bilateral
binomial
polypathic/polyphonic
co-passioning
revolutionary revision,
restoring peace,
Earth Climate Justice,
inside as outside,
inspiration as exhalation
enlightening as empowering
not-not yin as positive intersectional yang
exponential 0 as multiculturing 1
incoming wealth herstory as outgoing polyculturing health

Ecofeminist 2020
predicting trimtab strategic
global health possibility
of a robust 2121
compassionate
cooperative wealth-climaxing
EarthSanctuary.

May this win/win celebration game
begin not win/lose degenerating all over again,
but, instead, grab hold of regenerative becoming
NewGreen MultiCultural Asylum.

Educating Roots

I have noticed
all my daily educational journeys
begin with,
Where do I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

I come from living waters
as profoundly liberating as the air
we would soon learn to breathe.

I am feeling said
for all the opportunities I avoided
to escape all the risks
invited by my shortages of curiosity
and patience,

Sad for settling into my most intimate low commons denominator
lack of commitments
neglecting my healthiest potential connections
with other living waters,
natural spirited inspired inspirational experiences

With those who might have had ears to hear,
surf to ebb and swell emotion’s wane and wax,
with low-bar instructions
to stay out of troubled oceans
seas and seasons,
lakes and swampy ponds,
waiting to be industriously drained,
rivers and endless wondering wandering tributaries
of wet extracted nutrition.

Sacred water murmurs more active hope,
a spray tickling across a lucid lupine stream
speaking mountain voices with and through rounded
risky
stones

Actively seeking sights higher
deeper
wider
narrower
there
here
then flowing on into higher water marks
now threatening to swamp organisms
and organizations along the shore
of change in all relationships of Earth.

I feel said
I have not set my well-watered sights higher
than do no harm
to those living waters
flowing forward into time’s healthiest
transparent
vulnerable,
curious and courageous future sluggish currents of nutrition,
prophets of soon to come malnutrition,
and all climatic hopes and fears
angers and sadness
in-between drowning risks
and strong-flowing currencies of win/win
wellness watering opportunity

To notice
all my daily educational journeys
begin with,
Where did I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

Resilient Health Care Systems

Competitive economic experience
breeds business as usual
capital-growing cultures
with a special preference historical
for white privilege patriarchal
remembering and designing
left-brain dominant educational systems.

Cooperative ecological economies
breed more organic networks
of permacultural health
and nutrition
and communication experience,
with a special historical preference
for ecofeminist Earth-empowered
deep learning
listening
noticing prime primal attachment relationships
between internal ego-
and external eco-
systemic balance,
harmony,
interdependent equity,

RightBrain HealthWealth Prominent ,
liberal leftwing progressive,
freedom from isolated loneliness,
depression,
repression,
suppression,
AND
LeftBrain WealthHealth Dominant,
conservative rightwing defensive,
freedom to impressively
robustly
compassionately
nutritiously thrive

without eating the less brilliantly aristocratic help

and remembering to at least say
Please and Thank You and You Are Welcome,
is where civil rights end
and co-responsively begin.

Queer Music

They lived across from each other
on and off the center floor dorm hall,
both on the much discussed
controversial LeftWing side.

Yang perused Yin’s CDs,
“I see you like that queer music,
Elton John
and Luther VanDross
and George Michael.
I didn’t notice that before.”

Yin responds quietly
calmly
amused:

First,
I don’t believe music is gay or straight,
but most everything related in-between
harmonic and dissonant,
diminished and replenished.

Lyrics may be queer or predictable
but usually flow well
either way
telling co-relating creation stories
of nature’s neural positives
and negatives
surfing back and forth
in and out
before and after
here and there
now and then
and yet to climax
polypathic health
as polyphonic wealth.

But, Second,
Feels to me all music,
maybe all muses,
are queer
when I think holistically about it,
us,
them,
verbally thought and non-verbally felt,
internally touched

By a rhetorical moment
we curiously know as music
without noticing how radically unlikely
regenerative processes
compassionate evolutions
could ever reproduce such homo-ingenious sounds,
rhythms,
patterns,
colors,
textures,
stories,
epic original empathic creations
and co-empathic octaved recreations
within such a LeftBrain heterosexual white privileged
RightWing capitalistic
narcissistically greedy
UnQueer Marching Against
the Great Historic/Futuristic muse and prophets
of harmony,
despite dissonance,
resonance,
despite fading resilience of Baby Xers,
polyphonic yin-mused light,
despite polynomial not not
climate of touch and feel dualdarkness.

Meanwhile Yang
couldn’t hear too well
since opening the window
facing spring
listening
to a cranked up RocketMan,
while athletically dancing to hot not unqueer music,
and Yin’s ears swayed tenderly after and before
queer musing
straight talk.
