In Our Taoist Zone

Yang (1) and Yin (0) Zones
are place-holders,
polynomial variables
for appositional co-arising relationships,
tensions, creative and not so much,

Such as white and color,
monoculturalism and multiculturalistic transubstantiation,
RightWing and RightBrain
conservative of past and progressive into compassionate future
elite and non-elite, in political philosophy
and history
of colonization with active hope for creolization,

Patriarchal and EcoFeminist polycultural intent,
healthy wealth,
win/lose competitive games
pretending not to want win/win cooperative


Peace Mediating Poetry

Thanks so much for forwarding
these John Paul Lederach stories
of un-learning academic approaches
to peace mediation.

I wonder if you remembered
my ongoing certification process
for justice-restoring mediation
in complex multicultural conflicting histories;
which are typically antithetical to resilient peace
through ongoing safe and healthy relationships.

With this background,
I was struck by “un-learning”.

To regain his poetic heart,
to remain resonant interdependently forward,
to give priority to emotional intelligence,
to remain actively curious about multicultural context,
and win/win strategic roots of issue-devolution,
we do well to relearn left-brain dominant communication lessons
to co-arise right-mind prominent compassionate listening
before speaking of how to win more,
or at least lose less,
through competitive win/lose
either/or assumptions
contrary to the opulence of Nature-Spirit
function and flow ZeroZone patterns
everywhere immanently transcendent.

From this non-dualistic place
un-learning academic cognition hierarchical models,
maps pointing up to win
and down to comparatively lose conflicts
of self-survival interest,
feels more like relearning both/and,
higher and wider and deeper points
of left with right minded skills,
loves within interdependent complex feelings
curious cooperative historical interests,
emerging courageously power-with
2020 re-vision anticipations.

May Sarton, sometimes a poet, observes
“It is good for a professional
to be reminded…
professionalism is only a husk,

That the real person
must remain an amateur,
a lover of the work.”

“…if to be a poet
means allowing life to flow through one
rather than forcing” love/life
“to a mold the will has” calcified;…

“If it means learning…
the day shape[s] the work,
not [just] the work,
the day,
and so live toward essence
as naturally as a bird
or a flower”

In a meadow
arrayed in warm-lit splendor
health and beauty,
healthy beautiful wealth
optimized by transcendent right-brain interdependence,
metaphoric neurological relationship,
theological re-communication,
holonic co-operation with Earth-wombed Mother’s
healthiest past through future.

We are increasingly invited,
by left with right minded correlations,
to want to do
what our healthiest ego says we must,
and to love what we ego-must
do to ego-eco-theo-logically want
to retain wealth of cooperative inter-communion,
healthy immanent/transcendent relationship climates
becoming/being the opposite of excommunicated,
the apposition of impeached
by disloyal and hate-filled over-reactions
heralded by the insufficient love
of our hierarchical and too-monocultural forefathers

Invites us to restore EarthJustice
one momentary win/win relationship choice
in a lifetime of sacred multicultural invitations.


Praising EcoFeminist Climates

Economically comfortable civilians,
without militarized propaganda indoctrination,
without physical neglect or abuse experience,
without religious blame and shame intimidation,
may sustainably recognize themselves as safe,
while stressed about why they do not matter,
do not feel needed
or even uniquely loved and wanted.

We are not born this way.
When an infant
receives no environmental cues
providing chronic stress
about “Am I safe?”
then the right-brain’s, “Do I matter?”
remains dormant,
within early co-empathic win/win default.

The social
and political
and economic question of interdependent value
is assumed to be Positive
when the left-brain is resiliently satisfied
about ego-safety,
thrivability for the foreseeable future
rooted in rapidly growing environmental nutrition experience;
ecologically healthy,
more than pathological,
climates of enculturation.

I have learned,
especially during my win/lose adolescent exploration years,
but not only then,
that meeting all criteria for physical safety
speaks to the Negatives healthy mindbodies must avoid,
toxicities endemic to social-political risks
of left-brain dominant intelligence,
but only implicitly hints at co-arising dipolarities
of and for our interdependent wealth healthy identity
through win/win communication,
intersectional effectiveness,
sacred meaning and spiraling vocation,
secular purpose and cooperative avocation.

The feminist,
knowing s/he is against patriarchy
and concomitant monocultural corporatism,
monopolistic commodification of social values,
colonizing win/lose hyperactive intent
rooted in supremacist
safe and secure sense of entitlement,
yet not able to articulate what s/he is for,
is a good example
of one who believes s/he could be safe
on a right-brain prominently interdependent
win/win matriarchal Earth,
but has no active enculturation
to thereby uncover egoleft-ecoright
health-wealth interdependent meaning.

Going back to my original list
of environmental hazards to avoid
for left-brain sustainable safety security,
absence of militarized lose/lose
cognitive/emotive co-arising complex chaos
does not explicitly invite peaceful win/win compassionate communication,

Avoiding physical neglect and abuse is necessary,
but not at all sufficient,
to sustain emotional appreciation and active support
through healthy wealth
of cooperative inter-relational experiences,
recreative joy and profoundly creative celebration,
like making robust resonant harmonies
regenerating music’s internally felt dance,
not only solo,
but with a partner,
within a family,
a community of peers,
a shared globally mediated stage
of song and dance
resistance and celebration
of shared compassion.

Avoiding religious blame and shame games
is not sufficient
to discover natural/spiritual nondualistic win/win
compassion games
defining wealth as refining health,
uncovering right-brain resonance
by discovering left-brain resilience,
explicating opportunity for meaning
without implicating great risk of unsafe egocentric purpose,
informing yang/yin robust intersectionality
without exflowing left or right mindbody egalitarian intelligence.

It remains easier to let go of win/lose patriarchal cultures
as we become more adept
with grabbing hold of win/win ecofeminist climates.


The DNA Web; Not RNC Wall

Resilient Climate Consciousness
as old as DNA,

Indigenous spiral ways of regeneration
invite revolutionary principles from yang equal egos
through yin eco-interdependent integrity
double-boundary systems
developing ecological economies of emotion,
deeply wealthy opportunities
for knowing resilient climate health.

This original integrity way of life,
not risky death,

(1) Prejudicially favors living cooperatively re-connecting
with our DNA extended family
from both sides
ecofeminist sacred East
and patriarchal secular West.

(2) This LifeWay invites bilateral/bicameral mindfulness
of win/win opportunities
to extend sacred compassioning attachments,
to re-incarnate past secular harmonic agreements.

(3) In this way
we have developed
with every attractive win/win opportunity,
distractive win/lose risk,
and unattractive lose/lose
all living future desecrating experience
of relationships fragmented
conscious of climatic stress,
unconscious systems unraveling,
anti-conscious against integrity’s re-connecting health
with wealth potential.

(4) This DNA Way
sustains resilient health systems
of Earth’s synergetic web
resonating collaboration

(5) Through bicameral processes
of cooperative ego-win/eco-win
co-passionate experience

(6) And our natural-yang/spiritual-yin
left with right
ego with eco-therapeutic climate consciousness

(7) Prejudicially favors living cooperatively
with our DNA health/wealth
extended EarthTribe family…

Are You Still Talking?

Said Liberal Left
to Conserving Integral Right,
I’m not sure why
yet you still treat win/win progressive cooperative opportunities
as if hiding a covert coven risk
of loose
loser LeftWing evil conspiring ecofeminists
struggling within a strictly secular political agenda box
of anti-white privileged patriarchy.

Said Integral Right,
to Liberal Left,
We’re still working together.
Sparring maybe,
but not really boxing,
I seem to golden shadow hear,
our reweaving seasoned win health
win wealth
secular left
sacred right cooperative
co-governing hope.

Responds Liberal Left
to Integral Right,
I thought you all were invested
in capital infestment monopoly players
in Right makes Might nationalistic Paradise,
autonomous LeftBrain RightWing win
to lose LeftWing
not ZeroSum polyculturing prominence.

CoResponds Integral Right win/win ZeroZone,
multiculturing dominance
to, and with, Liberal Left,
We sound,
to me,
in harmony.

Progressive conservants
prefer to divest of anthro-history’s
ClimateHealth kleptocracy
of inhumane toxic un-naturality.

We might depolarize today
providing a new old-designing win/win cooperatively graced day
yet not quite so much LeftBrain dominant
plowing win/lose through right of might
bipolar rutted debate paths
and sluggish streams of struggling semi-consciousness.

Said Liberal secular Left
back with Integral sacred Right,
Instead of win/lose business as usual,
we might together uncover
what we can only together rediscover
in-between renewing healthy climates,

EgoLeft inside
and EcoRight extending synergetically outside,
Reweaving win health to win wealth cooperative
co-passionate re-investments
of wealth forms
and organic health functions
in history and future herstoric restories
of culture and religion,
of deduction and induction of cognitive and emotive,
reductive fragmenting theories
and inductive fragments of climate integrity,

When yang loves not-not yin
interdependently win/win
balances health-soul inside
as wealth-nature outside
once again
polynomially languaged
and enumerated

Polypathically not only secular,
not only sacred,

Said Liberal Left speakers
while Integral Right co-passionately listened
for healthier multicultural consciousness,
pro-matriarchy patriarchy courageously felt
transparently heard

…of cats in here/now shadow boxes
extending timeless ZeroZone mortality
of identity ecopolitics
of overheated dogs in there/then races
back through not not ZeroSum…

Said Liberal Left secularizing mouth
to Integral Right sacred polyphonic ears.
