Hearing With CoPassioned Eyes

S/he listens for powerful words
and hears deeper moving sounds
resonant sighs
empowering peace replies
corroborated with his eyes.

I see Her capitalized nurture meaning
and trust what remains visible
long after forgetting short-lived
persuasive
purposes he has veiled
and she unveils

Especially when sight
displays dissonance
betraying trusted
faithful sensate confluence

Without faithless flaws
bad-humored
mistrusted words
vicious circled tumors
not consonant
with what I can hear
and see nonviolently
however nonverbally
with sacred communion eyes

To perceive
regard
anticipate
compassion
slowly disregarding fear
of chronic
addictive win/lose compulsive problems
regardless of past disempowering angers
without unguarded win/win passions.

When I can see Her story
I can hear my narrative
spiritually unfold
naturally inside

MetaPhysically where
and sacred when
and soulfully why
s/he speaks
through his lovely
wholesome open eyes

And listens with unguarded ears
to words for power’s integrity
communionating robust agency,
and not against win/win vivacity,

Widening deeper
enlightening
elegant round unsound
intricately felt soul-filled sounds

Intimately touched trust
resiliently seen as heard
resonant resounds.

Stepping Outside to ReGather

Easy to get stuck inside
my heads outside
our neglected hearts

Breathing in and out togather
fumes of historically fueled
graphite sheeted walls
too all-encumbering to smell
as monoculturing trauma

Failure to wonder
nuanced appositional

looking for mediating

still felt alone inside

Cumbersome

Hard to remain unstuck

Bruising Words

Words too often have rough edges,
bloody histories,
lines more defined
than relentlessly imaged cliffs,
worshipping sacred sunlight shades
of high hazards

Coveted risks
more than needed opportunities
to hard wall wail against wild creations
unmoved by words
without animated calling
longing
belonging
or wooing wilderness

Offending worded weapons
seducing well-schooled tools

Sounds with edges
and without

Opening and closing
edgeless sighing pause

Slowly awaiting surf’s slow
slurried
soft
slavish turn
to reach for shores
absorbing thoughtless
sand-grained
edges.

A CoInvested Intervention

A multicultural proposal
for a bipartisan Intervention,
not to be confused
with drilling a nervous root canal.

  1. I take responsibility

What I am feeling
about myself.

What I believe I need
for my health
and safety.

What I want
from you.

Then
What you are feeling
about yourself.

What you believe you need
for your health
and wealth of thriving resilience.

What you want
from me
to support your journey.

  1. I embrace curiosity

What I am feeling
about you.

What I believe you need
for your health
and thriving sense of safe resilience.

What I want
for you.

Then
What you are feeling
about me.

What you believe I need
for my health
and safe resilient wealth.

What you want
for me.

  1. We support compassion

What you are now feeling
about us.

What you believe we need
for our here and now health
and co-invested wealth.

What you now want
from and for
us.

Then
What I am now feeling
about MeWe communal Us.

What I now believe we need
for longterm resonant health
and resiliently balanced
mindbodied wealth.

What I now want
from and for
sacred
co-invested
Us

Doing win/win better
than addiction to avoiding
and then angrily drilling
yet another nervous root canal.

The Mural Project

Education Secretary Ellen,

Some of us
on the EarthCare Team
and also the Transport Solutions Committee
for special projects
are wondering
and, frankly, hoping

Your green STEAM students
and teachers
might research,
design,
and help residents paint
a historically accurate
AND polyculturally exquisite
series of murals

On our two-tiered
upper, more transcendently hopeful,
and lower, more historically faithful,
retaining walls

After our crumbling concrete parking pads
and steel-framed industrial artifacts
are hauled away
with respect and gratitude
for future repurposing

Our Transport Solutions
and EarthCare Elders
hope to use this transitional moment
to divert water runoff
to north and south bermed
and graceful descent
down toward our sacred RiverGaia,
rather than continuing to run
race
to disgrace our wet unhealthy basement

Thereby diverting soiled water stains
from historic runoff narrative face
retaining walled epic paintings,
perhaps combined with etching,
to tell a true and beautiful tale
about this sacred place
where we live
and work,
garden
and enjoy our EarthCare classroom
residence,
inside and outside

As did indigenously wise
Elders before us

And RiverGaia
learned Her future shape and flow
from ancient predative
cold
relentless icey white glaciers,

As will future natural construction
and deconstruction regenerators,
Thermal students
of green STEAM polyculturing Elders,
including co-invested us

Learning new Truth
and old Beauty Stories

Of how EarthCare givers
and health-care receivers
survived mistrust
to compassionately,
nonviolently
exquisitly thrive together
more better
than apart.

Laboratory Life

In our scientific
secular
sometimes ecological
paradigms

We speak
and feel monocultural solitude
versus polycultural amplitude

Colonizing internal dry complexities
versus creolizing moist outside chaos
decomposing uncreative tensions
lack of creative intentions

Meanwhile,
within our gospel choirs
sacred
systematically theological
polytheistic
and polyphonic
transubstantiating polynomially
equipoised poetic
polytheistic paradigms
expressing timeless robust resonance

We feel hopeful
while actively listening
especially for polyculturing Beauty
balancing
straight white forefathers’
monotheistic trust
and, possibly, monopolistic lust
for anthrosupremacist Truth

Together
creolizing healthy integrity
rather than colonizing wealthy competitions

These recreative therapeutic co-intentions
co-relations
co-investments
co-operations
co-peak memories
of sweaty sweet co-passions:

Immanently felt
politically empowering
and lawful
and eminently awesome
and hopefully not laboratoried
experimental awful

AND transcendently experiential
macro-economic green cost-aversive theories
for micro-health/wealth effective-attractive
and ethical peak neurosensory experience

Revolving global peace gospel
evolving through local justice restoring
secular laboratories
repurposing sacramental health
and wealth-thrival
indigenous enlightenment.

Therapeutic Climate

EarthMother grows impatient,
despite her curiosity driven
cooperative inviting polyculture
reconnection with SunFather’s Great White
monotheistic climate
of Patriarchal-Capitalist classroom
RightHand saluting
salutary competitions.

Your historic move,
S/He dissonantly
defiantly intones,
from sacred panentheistic peak experiences,
which are inherently dipolar co-arising,
to monotheistic judgments
punishing the bipolar sick people
for manic/depressive original sinning

Is also a monoculturing move
away from sacred arts and scientific
metaphysical traditions
favoring polycultural communion
fueling resiliently synergetic health care

Swimming
and floating
and flowing
Indigenous Wisdom
more accessible
and engaging
and attractive
than a mere secularizing staid set
of Patriarchal-Capitalist
win/lose survival of the strongest dogmas
resisting sharing wealth

Outside your monotheistic
dualistic secular v sacred dividing
bipolar nature v spirit
as body v mind dissonance

Rooting in traumatic win/lose
zero-sum
closed entropic lose/lose despair

Degenerative despondence
loss
stress
trauma
predicting cosmic existential
climate dopesick anxiety

Wrote EarthMother’s neurosensory
bilateral systemic theology
for multiculturing
metaphysical review

Win/win re-connecting
inter-religious panentheistic
empowering incursions
into Wholy Enthymematic

health is positive wealth
physical/metaphysical

River Voice

Here lies what this aged Indigenous River
thinks s/he needs
and wants, perhaps,
but most emphatically feels,
from us.

We continue to use Her
more like a shameful toilet
than her delivery system
of upstream pure
and nutritious drinking water
would suggest she had coming
from former deep green estuaries

Root flow systems
sacredly emerging functions
from deep EarthMother’s darkest
primal wu-wei
womb,
dipolar co-arising
health is wealth compunctions.

Ancient indigenous wisdom
suggests we would be healthier
if we didn’t on MamaEarth,
from whom we eat and drink,
should we hope to keep hunger
and thirst at bay
with and for future regenerations

Pursuing our healthiest dipolar nature-spirit
co-arising win/win wealth
of ecopolitically enlightened nutrition

And empowering fertile poop repurposing
for cultivating improved soil health trends

Ego- and Eco-systemic
permaculturing design,
planning,
nonviolent implementation priorities
for local community resilience.

Resilient Redemption

Probably few of us
have capacity
to see ourselves
as both Angel
and Demon.

Many of us
have had the experience
of demonizing
and punishing ourselves
for sins of the past
extending into our present
festering
unresolved trauma.

Hopefully many of us
have also had the experience
of forgiveness
and saving ourselves
from sins of the future
because someone shared with us,
in some effective way,
that nothing
is always your autonomous fault

If only because
no organic creature,
anthro or otherwise,
is born
or can survive
radically autonomous
from non-ego centers.

Personal identity
follows interpersonal
ecosystemic individuation
developmentally
causally
and effectively.

I hear healing opportunity
in this responsible
yet not solely responsible
both/and way of consciousness

As well as traumatizing risk
of denial,
too cheap self forgiveness,
too easy hiddenness
of our secret
most private
feelings of guilt
about harming another

Both intentionally
and without malice,
accidentally.

A woman’s reluctant decision
to abort may feel unresolvable
between angelic win/win desires
and demonic win/lose fears
and angers

As might
her reluctant decision
to buy a gun
and several ominous rounds
of deadening ammunition

To protect herself
and her children
from traumatic demons
at her flimsy door

Not considering
her lack of experience
with braver angels
hoping to reassure her.

Therapeutic angels
may also wait,
curiously
and impatiently,
outside that same door,
searching for health’s
most wealthy bell
to dispel
shared dark shadows

In-between silent demons
we abhor
and sacred angels
we redemptively adore.

Healthy Life Integrity

I find a consistent
constitutionally protected value
hidden in Preambulation
and historical Declaration
reaffirming U.S. healthy democracy,
our Holy Grail.

Life
liberty
pursuit of happiness
well-being

During Enlightened Elder
1700s,
and still largely our worldview today
in deindustrializing MidWest
sweltering South
acid raining East
and, most mystically,
among empowered Californians
and Oregonians
and Washingtonians,

Healthy democratic intent
for integrity of humanity
supports HEALTHY life,
INTERDEPENDENT liberty,
and win/win pursuit
of resiliently SUSTAINABLE
happiness,
well-being,
peace.

This non-issue
of our constitutional republic,
with healthy,
growing
still-evolving
dynamic democratic intent,
purposed with sacred meaning
to nurture and support
HEALTHY life

Becomes more obvious
when considering what an “ethic of life”
would look like
if our eloquent ForeFathers
and wise GrandMothers
had UNhealthy life
as an economic
and political aspiration

Any quality of life,
regardless of how compromised
pathological
sinful
demented
unhappy
joyless
violent
pathological
ignorant
greedy
belligerent
traumatized
chronically stressed
dissociated
severed from a shared reality
of cooperative peace
and co-invested contentment

Could not be a consistent ethic,
or family morality,
of HEALTHY life
for all organic creations,

Not preferential for Straight White Men,
but a healthy polycultural democracy
to support healthy
interdependent
sustainable human lives
of all cultures,
inter-religious beliefs,
compassionate feelings,
nonviolent communications.

More recently,
ecologists
and creation theologists
and climatologists
have added an interesting footnote
to healthy democratic aspirations

If we would have
nutritionally
politically
economically healthy resilient lives,

Then we need
and want
to extend our democratically appreciated agenda

To include HEALTHY lives
of oceans,
forests,
river systems,
air,
bioregions,
food chain
interdependent
sustainable
life-care systems.

As far as I know,
my Republican friends
and family
share this expectation of our governors,
legislators,
executives,
court systems,
to seek HEALTHY life care

And, not so much
PATHOLOGICAL
diseased lack of caring
for all Earth’s sacred tribes,
species,
networks,
cooperative win/win
organically interdependent
sustainable health-care systems.
