Rejoining Work With Play

Dividing work from play,
like noting night not day,
is useful in a left brain dominant way
yet not so good
in right and left to-gathering
communicating say.

In my most real
and sacred trust right mind
no profound difference I find,
not even any healthy reason to distinguish
secular and physical work
from sacred mental play,
cooperative investment
from perpetuating multicultural empowerment,
communicating humors, dark and light,
virtuous polypathic and polyphonic
reiterative exchange loops,
harmonious circles,
seasons of processing health
producing nutritious wealth,

Sacred trinities of ego
and eco
and double-binding ego/eco
searching truth statements
about compassionate regenerative EarthBound patriotism
to this planet home of humored Earth,

Host of work and play
wealth and health co-passioning experience
left-autonomous either secular or sacred
with both natural and spiritual rights more integral
re-creative process
and nondual Eastern passions,

Cognition from emotion,
being from becoming,
ego belonging Left from eco-longing Right
universal secular nutritional memories
from unitarian tribal experience
originating in EarthMothers’ eco-wombed Communion
health-wealth Commons
politically empowering
economic win/win healing ecology
re-wombed,
re-connecting,
re-collecting,

In my most real and sacred true right mind
I find
no profound secular difference,
not even any sacred healthy reason
to distinguish
or extinguish
secular physical engagement
from sacred mental cooperative commitment.

Making Earth Great Again

Do we still belong together,
long to compassion with each other
more than against?

Do we still believe
Earth is more of a regeneratively developing memory
than a degeneratively unraveling lack of cherished experience?

Can we still distinguish between
organic becoming
and autonomous mechanical being
despite over-heated and windy climates
of migrating left/right change,
global west/east
and U.S. nationalistic south v north
and non-communal ambiguous faith commitments
to commodifying capitalism and communal communion of saints
and sinners,
and anti-win/win compassionate parenting,
and not not disassociative anthropocentrism,
and chronically stressed win/lose egocentrism…

I don’t believe I have,
and you have,
and They have one right answer
to this question of compassionate solidarity’s
true and trust potential.

But I do have active faith
we could create a safe discussion
for ways we do still feel win/win healthier together
than win/lose apart,
and ways we do not,
and in-between do not not,
yet unresolved polynomials,
networking interdependent paradigms
toward healthier wealth.

I do have active hope
we could choose to hold us win/win wealthier together
than autonomously apart,

More resilient than further win/lose fragmentation
of a healthy civil democratic
liberal arts and sciences informed
by original multiculturing wombed resonance
great turning away from further degenerating
our climate woundedly fracturing
disempowering futures apart.

A lifetime of win/win conversions
comes down to how we everyday ask
and every breath and heartbeat answer
these questions,
Do we still belong together,
long to compassion with each other
more than against?

Contract Against Greatness

In Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”
she paints a nationalistically wealthy saint
where also lives a monochromatically utilitarian narcissist,
sucking on attachment to fame and power
for bought and sold ZeroSum accounting Souls.

If the perfectly powerful pure patriarchal patriot
were your own Atlas father,
you might feel certain
he would prefer you grow to be Trumpian
and probably not a peace activist
vegetarian;
certainly not half-naked Gandhi.

Donald Trump
is the formerly cooperative democratic Enlightenment-inspired,
white privileged
monoculturing logical conclusion
to a now almost fully win/lose left-hemisphere autocratic disenchantment
predicting our PostIndustrial Totalitarian Revolution
and Anti-Christian
Anti-Islamic
Anti-Spiritual Experience
dogmatic left-commodified hemispheric Rapture;
not to be confused with Rabbi Heschel’s left with right integral
wonder regenerating timeless awe.

Donald Trump
as the shrugging Atlas UnPresident
of boring old-fashioned cooperative win/win spiritual hopes
and global fake-fundamental
non-conservational
win/lose ecopolitical
monocultural aspirations,
And yet also,
a shadow perhaps,
of ecological/theological respirations,
still silent speaking against his predator rights of wealthy nations
in his “Art [and Science] of the Deal.”

Nowhere, in his Chapter Two,
“Trump Cards: The Elements of the Deal”
will we find any value for win/win ego/ecological cooperative evolution;
Like the evolution you and I have
every left-hemisphere dominant day
and right-hemisphere prominent win/win night.

While climate restoring Schumacher activists
advocate Think Small,
Trump begins with “Think Big”
and autonomously take out win/lose contracts
against a more civil win/win empowering multicultural society
with explicit constitutional commitments
to natural/spiritual Enlightening nondualistic prosperity,
well-being
global,
and national,
and family,
and personal health/wealth care.

“Protect the Downside
and the Upside
Will Take Care of It[My]self.”
In this second Trump principle of the Big Deal
we see more the science and math of his egocentric,
monoculture supremacist,
anthropocentric terrorism;
His prejudice against God’s weak and vulnerable migrants
outside U.S. borders,
and illegal immigrants inside U.S. borders.

Here, in TrumpLand of win/lose zero-sum dealmaking,
healthy diversity is anti-natural
and ‘bad boy’ bullying sacred law and order
assumed to be an appropriate response
to a pernicious communioned interdependent threat
to wealthy monoculturing uniformity–
never mind about polypathic right/left integrity.

The entire global biodiversity of regenerative species
gloriously together sing out, and in,
restorative win/win peaceful creolizing anthems,
quite to the contrary reversion principle
from yang/yin
win/win polyphonic integrity.

“Maximize your [EgoCentric] Options”
by never getting too attached to winning just one deal;
Yet do remain ego-invested in autonomously winning all deals,
all places and spaces,
all the time
reinvesting in left-hemisphere dominance
as if a fully universal map
for an unbalancing ego-uncentric territory.

“Know Your Market”
instinctively overpowering
and repressing right-hemispheres
preferring win/win co-investment
in the healthier contagion of compassion,
peace,
possibly even democratically-held joy.

“Use Your [Either Win or Lose] Leverage”
rather than return to compassionately empower
our healthiest democratic win/win co-leverage,
capital co-invested leverage,
cooperative employee-ownership leverage.

Notice that “Use Your [access to capital wealth] Leverage”
sounds quite different than Principle 11
in David Holmgren’s
“Permaculture Principles
and [Poly]Pathways Beyond Sustainability”
where cooperative permaculture designers
actively caution each other
not to assume you
and/or a nation-state
are on the right health track
just because it is an overly wealthy
beaten-down pathway to anthropocentrism
and narcissistic xenophobia,
“Use Edges
and Value the Marginal.”

And so this Trump v sacred cooperative economics
culture-war continues,
polyculture v monoculture,
yanging our way toward climate apocalypse
rather than a 2020 healing win/win yin revolution.

Trump advocates
“Enhance Your Location”
autonomously owned for personal profit.
Holmgren invites us to
“Obtain a [cooperative win/win] Yield”
sufficient for ego and eco-empowering resilience.

Trump, Get the [EgoCentric-AnthroCentric] Word Out”
so philanthropic Atlas,
bearing the messianic suffering of Earth,
now degenerates into self-glorifying President Narcissus.
Holmgren, “Apply SelfRegulation and Accept Feedback.”

Trump, “Fight Back.”
Holmgren, “Integrate Rather than Segregate.”

Trump, “Deliver the Goods,” as fast as possible.
Homgren, “Use and Value Renewable Resources
and Services,”
cooperatively managed by left-hemisphere’s natural secularity
and right-hemisphere’s sacred integrity,
economic ecology.

Trump, “Contain the [personal checking account] Costs.”
Homgren, “Catch and [public regeneratively] Store Energy,
nutrition,
non-violent communication,
wealthy health care of planet,
people,
plants.

Trump, “Have Fun” making more wealth-acquiring
colonizing
win/lose deals.
Holmgren, “Produce No Waste,”
which sounds a bit left-hemisphere Victorian
and purist,
maybe even ideological,
to a Trumpian,

But, is originally intended
to return a cooperative messiah leadership profit
to reconsider not not ZeroSum geometrics
may also become biometric
polypathic-polyphonic
Zero ZenSouls
of Yang/Yin
Left/Right timeless
health/wealth Tao

Which seems like a better place to end
than the Conservative Science
of Making the Trumpian ShortTerm
Win/Lose Deal.

Cultures,
including business cultures,
and democratic public sector cultures,
are either multiculturally healthy
or monoculturally pathological,
or somewhere in-between
integrity and audacious mendacity.

Sometime During the Night

Sometime during the night
I knew what was more right
to sing our songs
with great yang might
and soft yintegrity’s not wrongs.

We could sustain our notes
within this singing circle,
whether loud or soft,
but not too soft
to slowly feel our pitch
veer yinly flat.

Whether bright or dull,
vibrato or flat-line pure linear
waves of yang/yin sounds
to hear
to uniformly match dipolar
co-arising
and multiculturally mixed.

Then, as we listen and sustain,
we are free to retain our interdependent voices
of dissonance and confluence,
of dissent and harmony,
of resistance and peace,
and also free to change
toward growing harmony
or growing disharmony.

And, as we listen for re-alignments
in our ego/eco-voicing stream of time,
we grow free to hear with right-hemispheric wholeness
of our collective chord changes,
fluctuations,
together soft,
now growing louder,
softer,
bolder,
more peaceful
until fading into silent joy,
listening to our echoing after-ring power
of collective yang/yin reweaving memory.

We are no different,
on our better win/win communicating days,
of listening to curiously understand
than actively speaking out and up
for ego/ecological resilience
timelessly echoing,
both vibrato and flat-line
peacefully ever mountain/valley after.

Fundamentalist Compassion

What is dogmatically
unchangingly fundamental to Christianity,
and to all win/win positive faith systems,
is certainly not capitalism’s ZeroSum economic assumptions
in which winner god takes all
from loser satan.

But, what is fundamental compassion’s truth
is profoundly sacred
globally open-systemic theology
of HolySpirit co-passion
eco-compassion could multiculturally become
integrity’s great transitioning potential
healthiest wisdom wealth.

What is ecstatically changing
deep and wide
to learn positive win/win bicameral neuropsychology
is another ecologically co-passionate
systematic re-creation theology.

If you have read
Iain McGilchrist’s
“The Master and his Emissary:
The Divided Brain and the [Un]Making of the Western World”
or
Julian Jaynes’
“The Origin of Consciousness
in the Breakdown
of the Bicameral Mind”
or
Edward DeBono’s “[Bi]Lateral Thinking”
or
Robert Norton and David Benders
“Communication and Consequences:
[Natural/Spiritual] Laws of Interaction”
or
Rob Brezny’s
“Pronoia is the Antidote to Paranoia”
preferably more simultaneously
than sequentially,

Does your experience while reading feel anything like?…

Euphoric self/other-perpetuating climax
double-boundary refining
binomial self/other co-passioning
courageous and curious discovery

Uncovering within Earth’s natural/spiritual recovery,
explicating/implicating unfolding
yang/yintegral
ego/ecological balancing
virtuous win/win verbing un-renouned
explicate/implicate circles
of effluent ecofeminist/affluent ego-patriarchal
subjective/historical enculturing objectives
healthiest optimizing wealth.

If so,
did you happen to notice
whether or not, or something in-between,
this integral/holonic perceptual frame
was more cognitive/affective confluent with THC?

If so,
did your mindbody seem to be producing/consuming
a self/other-perpetuating oxytonic flush/rush?

If so,
have your friends/family become more opently curious
about your newish win/win integrity
as contrasted with your earlier unreformed
fundamentally competitive win/lose evolutionary theories
rooted in lose/lose ultimate ego-centric mortal fears
and angers
and devilish mortal self-hatred?

As expressed in cognitive/affective chronically stressed voices
and depression
and emotionally disassociated messages
about left-brain courage
and right-brain curiosity,
Yang awesome strength
and Yin integrity’s potential wonder

To re-consider all the unfolding left-brain facts
of Earth’s unraveling lose/lose trends,
And then push through to win/win ecofeminist matriarchal joy
in polypathic
polyphonic
polynomial paths

As EarthMother’s Way
fills each ego-balancing day
and eco-polyphonic night
with co-polypathic
polynomiaLeft
echoes not-not bilaterally affective
multi-enculturing Right.

Emotional Intelligence

Glutted left-brain information media
actively hope to understand

Why does emotional intelligence
speak to egocentric concerns
of mortality and discomforting toxic defeat,
loss and difficult win/lose everyday choices
in a calming voice for unself-conscious contentment?

What is this ZeroSoul content of contentment
to feel we are right
sentient full beings
here co-present
within eternal now relationships of compassion
affiliating on this Earth
in our co-passioning interdependent webs
of health co-operative
wealthy co-investment

Without mortal loss,
suffering;
Without unwanted walls between us
and them.

Why does emotional unintelligence
speak too loudly
intolerantly
of Earth-UnCentered constant concerns
of inhumane immortal overpowers
and toxic LoseHealth/LoseWealth
RightWing left-brain dominant choices
in cacophonous dissonant voices
claiming no rights to contentedly tolerate
only healthier multicultures
of win/win emotional intelligence?

Liberal LeftWing Flight

It has been said
Charles Darwin was not happy
with leftbrain’s Survival of the Fittest
without rightbrain’s ecosystemic health roots
in Thrival of the Fittin-ingest,

Which Bateson,
and other systemic ecologists,
would later call interdependent co-acclimation,
and Jane Gordon politically theorizes
rare histories of win/win creolization
with much healthier outcomes
and wealthier too,
than leftbrain’s fascination
with wealth-acquiring colonization.

Foolish leftbrain dominance,
so unaware history has regeneratively concluded
there is no lasting resilient wealth
without ecosystemic EarthClimate health.

Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations
produced similar unease
about evolutionary theories
denying the primally obvious
Health of Interdependent NationStates
through robust natural/spiritual Earth consciousness,
co-passioning double-binding nonduality,
like bipolar either Yang or Yin of reductive ZeroSum reasoning
and dipolar both Yang with Yin of inductive ZeroSoul co-nurturing.

While Adam Smith’s leftbrain wrote,
“The necessity of civil government grows up
with the acquisition of valuable property…
till there be property there can be no government,
the very end of which is to secure wealth,
and to defend the rich
from the poor.”

His more interdependently ecosystemic rightbrain
was feeling,
“The opportunities of civilizing governance grows up and out
with the acquisition of healthy interdependent properties
of communal co-acclimation…
till there be cooperatively integral properties
there can be no ego/ecosystemically thriving co-governance,
the very beginning through end of which is to secure health,
and to defend the poor
from the kleptocratic colonizations
of the too leftbrain dominant rich.”

Where “capitalism permits wealth
to purchase,
own,
and profit from natural resources,”
notes Kenneth Cloke’s ecosystemic analysis,

There also,
integralism, integrity,
invites health to invest in,
to cooperatively own wealth,
and resiliently benefit with nondual natural/spiritual resources,

Not only LeftBrain “exhausting the land on which our food is produced,”
but also RightBrain feeding our soil-souls
from which our sensory nutritional awareness is rooted
and wombed;

Not only “poisoning the water we drink
and polluting the air we breathe,”
But also healing the living waters we consume
and collaboratively purifying the air trees breathe
and bicameral lungs digest
ingest
outgesture;

Not merely “the sale and consumption of fossil fuels,
irrevocably heating our planet,
altering our weather,
raising sea levels,
extinguishing countless species
and threatening the survival of millions,
if not all species”…

But also re-investment in natural/spiritual
left/right systems
interdependently cooling our robust planet,
re-acclimating our weather,
re-lowering sea levels,
cooperatively planting and nurturing countless species
and fostering the thrival of ecosystemically resilient millions,
if not all left/right
yang/yin balancing
anthro/eco-systemic life
on secular/sacred
deductive/inductive
unfolding explicate/refolding implicately co-arising
win/win binomial ZeroSoul compassion with Earth.

Where leftbrain’s either + or (-,-)1
is also rightbrain’s resolution
both + and (-,-)0-Soul,
like positive psychology polynomials
equivalently health/wealth valued
as not-not polynomial
neurologically interdependent polypathic web systems,
inviting both wealthy rightbrain polyphonic co-passion
and further leftbrain healthy curiosity.

Note: This piece is heavily indebted to the dialogue and conflict resolution work, growing more robust resilient democracy systems, as found in Kenneth Cloke’s “Politics, Dialogue and the Evolution of Democracy.” concerned with how to win/win discuss race, abortion, immigration, gun control, climate change, same sex marriage, and other Hot Topics.
