SomeTimes

Everything growing so wild
and faithfully beneath
the sky,
wondering why we are the terrible
part of creation

Yang privileged
to refuse our yin-feminist flowering,
our own more cooperative ownership
and transparently universal management
of yang wants,
diseased not wants,
with, and not against,
yin wealthy yet non-elite
feeling

Now suppressed absence
of healthy resilient
green echoing eco-school

Safe Home

SafeHome is not so much a real place
as a destiny longed for
on our lifetime journey toward dynamic well-being,
too healthily robust to fear growing homeless and friendless.

SafeHome is not an unchanging Paradise,
statically without resonantly changing,
slow-turning nutritious seasons,
ups and downs,
ins and outs.

Such conservative stability, uniformity
could never be my red-blooded idea
of brilliantly resilient Heaven.

So, when Earth’s climate pressures,
internally and externally competing
to my point of ego-aggression,
notice chronic stress climbing up my back
and shoulders,
brain stem and frontal cortex
concerned about politically left and personally unself-righteous depression,

When cynicism about never ever loving enough WinWin RealTimes
RealTalk
Real cooperative integrity walks
into co-passioning solidarity,

Then my SafeHome destined child and parent voices
prefer WinWin economic ecological sanctuary
removed from WinLose habitual habitats,
dissonant stuckness
never ever feeling like healthy SafeHome resilience.

Homes resonantly sustained
First, by dynamic cooperative resonance
with all EarthTribes
occupying cooperative health vocational preoccupations

And, Second,
actively seeking sanctuaries cooperatively facilitating,
feeding,
watering,
fueling ongoing multicultural nutritional development

HealthyWealth SafeHomes
plant and harvest socially compassionate,
interdependent health-resonant relationships,
polyculturally resilient,
spiritually and naturally polypathic, nonsectarian,
democratically positive energetic, dynamic systems
forming SafeWombed
flow-functions,
universal inside survivor memories
of cooperative sanctuary, originally outside warm wombs

From SafeWombs
emerge WinWin infants, then young and free children
who become WinWin parents and teachers and gratitude preachers,
eco-listeners and ego-speakers
longing for compassionately cooperative SafeHome returns,
pilgrimages toward universal solidarity,
unitarian SafeHome interdependence.

A long strong ZeroZone SafeHome
for robust reunification
within EarthTribe graced communions, healthy
green cooperatives,
permaculturally wealthy
deep learning lifetimes
for green STEAM educational placements,
safe ZeroBalancing carbon-based residencies
in WinWin learning civilizations.

Dear Ivy

Dear Ivy,

I am sorry we did not receive even just a moment to say goodbye
and thank you to each other
for all those school bus rides we took together,
you in your harness,
and me in my wonder
about what’s coming next
from your talking head
to mine.

It is time for me to move on
to another student,
but I am happy to leave you in Miss Josie’s care.

I know she will enjoy your time
invested in each other,

Listening and taking turns speaking kindly with each other,
Singing and maybe even a little dancing together,
reading and drawing as light and bumps allow.

Maybe you can teach each other
some new KnockKnock jokes.

KnockKnock.
Who’s there?
Sandi.
Sandy who?
Sandy sandwiches
are not good for you.

KnockKnock.
Who’s there?
Josie.
Josie who?
Jo see for yourself,
Open the door!

I am grateful to have so many silly and lovely memories
of you
to take with me.

And, the greatest farewell gift you could give me
is your reassurance
that these same warm and happy memories
of us
are what you will carry with you
throughout your great adventurous journey
into well-being.

Warmly yours,

Sandi

Sandi who?
Sandy snacks
are not so good for you.

Note:

My behaviorally disordered ADHD and fetal alcoholic daughter, with abandonment issues and deep-seeded food anxiety issues, suddenly lost her long-standing school bus aide, probably to compassion burn-out.  Ivy can be a profound motivator of impatience in those around her, even with deep and widely developed caregiving and receiving skills. This is the farewell that I think Ivy would have found more therapeutic than the isolating complexities of disappearance without explanation or expressed gratitude for what did co-relationally work for so long.

To be clear, not saying goodbye was an administrative decision from above; not what Ivy’s aide wanted for herself or for Ivy.

Beyond LeftBrain Intelligence

In Beyond Religion
the Dalai Lama offers non-sectarian roots of compassion
to motivate global cooperative behaviors
and inner mentally nurturing health values.

He begins with the assumption
his readers are asking,
How and Who are we
to become more compassionate,
kinder,
more forgiving,
more health v pathology discerning?
Not just in our root passionate intent
but in our actual co-invested behavior.

We already respond to such questions
by educating our health/wealth nondualistic hearts.

We already work to restrain negative behaviors
with anger and fear mindful
non-mongering
anti-competitive nonself-marketing management.

We already combat and absorb,
acclimate and cooperatively sublimate
destructive emotional impoverishing tendencies.

We already aspire to cultivate ego-health values,
passion,
patience,
contentment,
self-forgiveness for past and future woundedness,
peaceful sufficiency of time and well-being,
left and right bicameral discipline toward mutually transparent confluence,
and co-operative eco-political generosity, paid forward
from one DNA-inspired wealth generation
to those healthy co-arising next.

Such practice,
everyday practice,
awareness practices require no special equipment,
no sectarian religious beliefs,
no lack of pro-active commitment to cooperatively vulnerable compassion.

Our global and local vocations,
across vast seas
and on our own thresholds,
to live ethically unitarian, egalitarian
integrally
harmoniously Earth patriotic
resiliently
resonantly
regeneratively with and for all sentient and sensed Others,
with a wealthier GoldenRule sense of health becoming,
is already co-passionately practiced
practiced
practiced independently of any sectarian nature v spirit dualistic intelligence.

Deep natural health and wide spiritual pan-sectarian wealth
educating our cooperatively owned and managed DNA
infused and still faithfully pumping Elder RightBrain
holistic
autonomic hearts
and newer LeftBrain conscientious minds
already co-invest passionate bilaterally committed time,
past with future strings
unweaving and reweaving nature/spirit species,
in multiculturally sustained sensory effort.

Cooperative
integral
global health spirited through locally embodied
efforts to learn kind-hearted health
with wealth-minded integrity

So we can all left/right
yang/yin intelligently benefit
from already enchanting ecopolitical
ego/eco-logical
co-passionate Light,
co-operative Ways,
co-interdependent Truths.

Green MultiCultural Education

CoOperative Teaching and Listening

All major educational challenges,
for both consumers and producers of communication,
call for best outside/inside compassion practices
rooted in cooperative awareness of nutritional flow patterns,
contrasted against toxic stagnation entropy, apathy,
and flowering as WinEgo/WinEco-health values.

For example,
racism and sexism and ageism and narcissism’s generic anthro-centrism,
from back when anthro-cooperative health
became fissured from Earth-compassionate wealth,
are not cooperative eco-habitually resilient values,
while traditional multicultural Golden Hippocratic Rules
are indeed wealthy ethical norms.

Conserving a green non-violent
pan-sectarian Earth future
is a nutrition nurturing matter
of restoring body/mind communicating external/internal climate justice,
now globally and domestically rupturing,

Restoring educational climate justice priorities
is a nurturing matter of consumer/producer health regulations
preferring Win/Win consistent multi-lateral transactional resolutions,
co-operative internal co-investment intent,
practice,
focus,
awareness,
building deep and wide polypathic health-wealth learning everyday
everywhere
with everyone
every moment.

Where there is no health,
no true wealth can survive.
Where there is no embodied wealth of sufficient life,
no true health could thrive.

We learn by listening
to Earth’s great and ancient outside Voices,
non-sectarian sensed,
non-violently encultured,
RightBrain intuited as holistically communicating holiness, holonic longing
to close growing Privileged/Destitute EarthTribe climate gaps
between elite anthro-patriarchal WinLose perception
and universal health/wealth WinWin reality,
long-term multi-regenerational,
warm wombed
cooperative eco-feminist restorations toward health care solidarity
giving/producing
receiving/consuming.

To LeftBrain comprehend these natural body
and spiritual mind cooperative educational challenges,
we co-passion ecological winning health
with growing seasonally recycling communication wealth,
crucial
critical to de-stress toxic climate pathology,
Again,
both deeply within egocenters
and widely without,
mentoring eco-centric co-operational balance.

Ego and Eco,
Left passionate Right,
non-sectarian and non-hostile holistic education
restoring green sanctuary health
cooperative schools for WinNature/WinSpirit
WinBody/WinMind compassionately purposed life,

Teaching non-sectarian therapeutic evolution
of sacred light-communicating revolutions
in non-violent
ultra-violet
polypathic green enhancement,
eco-school felt and thought
through all four seasons
of health development.

All educational green eco-passion challenges
call for best health practices,
eco-systemic and ego-resilient co-mentoring skill sets
cooperatively provoking wealthy multi-enculturing outcomes,
globally embodied and/if locally clean green minded.

More Therapeutic Investments

If my behaviors,
for ill or good,
are embedded in my belief system,
recognized by internally articulating our apparently shared faith
in social sanctuary structures,
habitats,
safe co-operative homes,

Then my actions feed all my psychological
and economic
and political
and educational
and ecologically imagined co-relationships,

Whether I believe good ecosystemic compassion
is more vital
efficacious
powerful
transparent
vulnerable
than smaller
isolated
autonomous
hidden egocentric narcissism,
or not.

Whether we are logic nurtured children
of positive natural outside faith,
or egospirit neglected negative faithless anti-compassion narcissistic subjects
of our own internal jealous angry GodVoices
speaking Negative SuperEgo words
of denatured depression and dispiriting doom.

Even toxic Creators of forbidding deforesting climates
preferentially prefer behaviors
of and for a more robust personal and social health Vocation.

If behaviors,
for health or pathology,
are embedded in natural exterior experience histories,
then actions feed all polypathic paradigms
for learning compassionate spiritual beliefs
in non-sectarian health vocations
swimming in temporal streams of divine nutrition
nurturing humane natural beliefs
widely teaching
deep learning resilient behavioral missions
for sustaining EarthTribe climate life,
healthy beliefs inside as wealthy behaviors outside.
