Coming Courageously Home

I’m returning home
from a bag it yourself grocery,
and listening to an African-American novelist
respond to questions,
actual open-ended real NPR questions,
like old school inquisitive journalists once asked
before the polarizing days and nights
of fake right/wrong answer questions
and their concomitant fake avoid entrapment non-responses.

Anyway,
I don’t hear his name,
or the title of his latest published work,
although it may be The Water Dancer
but then again, maybe not.

You would think I would be too embarrassed
to courageously publish
this piece
so carelessly
unsystematically researched.

But, he says,
“We do not do well
to expect courageous behavior
from systems”
or something to that political and economic effect.

Thinking with him about the slavery/property-ownership system,
about capitalization and colonization and commodification systems,
my first response
is to celebrate
this profound and wise soundbite,
both quotable
and true to my own experience
of disempowering monoculturing systems.

But, then I think of several exceptions
to the cowardice incentivizing rule
of authoritarian systems,

Like wildly robust cooperative ecosystems
and even vulnerable volunteer ego-systems,
biosystems zealously loyal to win/win compassionate outcomes
without which we would have no language systems
or experience of courage
or cowardice,
integrity or fragmenting mendacity.

Yet, why does he so boldly say,
and why do I so instinctively and enthusiastically agree,
that systems produce win/lose compromising
servile
bureaucratic timid behavior?
Too often hidden shadows
lurking behind deliberate non-communication.

This free and brave individual
competing against an unhealthy craven society
is a plot line
that seems to go back to Adam and Eve
playing blame and shame
with their Great Systemic Gardener.

Then I realize
it’s not that organic systems are unsupportive of co-invested courage,
it is corporate systems,
monetized systems,
colonizing systems
extractive technocratic systems
producing commodification of secularized values,
reduced from sacred courage and integrity and health

Rather than inviting wealthy health values
into our responsive compassionate selves
working and playing in cooperatively owned
and managed,
responsible and authoritative,
nutritious and nurturing,
courageous and curious
flow systems of commonly-held ergodic energy
good healthy humor
vocations positive,

Invocations wealthy and robust
with co-inspiring witness
courage
listening and speaking unflinching compassion,
candor for self and other mutual health care
embodying interdependent Golden Rules
and zero ego/eco-ratio zones of co-acclimation.

Destroying curious and stressed systems
demands bad humored win/lose bullies
detached
careless
mindless
broken.

Creating resilient robust systems
invites good humored win/win courage
commitment
constantly changing curiosity.

Breathless Change

There seems to be,
at least for me,
an important difference
between wanting to change people
and wanting to heal toxic feelings and beliefs.

When I exhale
into
and on
and under,
side by side
and through
and inside Earth’s climate,
I do not expect to change Earth culture,
but I do hope to heal too passive separation,
lack of co-inviting intimacy.

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
unrelationship
anti-relationally
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
re-connections
left with right
ego with eco-therapeutic climate consciousness

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

The Climatic Collaboratory

I don’t recall whose inspired idea it wasn’t
to invite the math professor
into our Therapeutic Collaborative Laboratory.

I do recall when I first heard her speak
of cooperative polynomial qualities
for improving ego/eco-therapeutic communications.

She was, of course,
in the back of the room.
I noticed her on my way in,
wondering if she might be a drag queen
prepared to go onstage during our Tea Dance,
scheduled much later on this sultry summer day
at Unitarian University,

Where all our truths combined are universal,
and no segregated truth
could possibly be trusted
without timeless collaborative scrutiny,
labored oratory
struggling to survive another day
in this urgent spacetime Laboratory.

I don’t remember
exactly what the facilitator’s question was,
but our topic was how to best quantify
evidence for Continuous Quality Improvement
of HealthCare
for Earth
and for all EarthTribes of interdependently webbing life.

I do remember
she did not raise her hand,
nor ask for the wooden talking stick,
but barged right in and on
as if bottled up impatience
could be spilled
to fill this collaborative space
through time.

“In MacroEconomic studies,
ecological and political resilient health care
empowers optimization
through co-passionate
co-operative
capital-investment,
or at least this seems true
whether inclined toward LeftBrain polypathic
or RightBrain polyphonic, better sung than said, muse-theory.”

Silence ensued
as both our lefts and rights
invited a collaborative exchange
to see if we might individually
and then collectively
make any sense of this,
but she went on to fill this vacuum
with nervous left-brain inferior interior complexities…

“Resilient health care consumer optimization
is also organic health care producer creolization,
together pursuing win/win resonant attachments
best when rooted in trust-based
deep learning cooperative communication”

“But, optimizing such resilience
invites a balanced collaborative event
in which left-hemisphere polypaths
find equal interdependent rights
within not-not co-passionate teachings
against lose/lose degenerative
unnatural
untruth trends,
AND
right-hemisphere poly-musicians
artistic talent refines win/win regenerative
sacred
co-operative
interdependent
wealth-orchestral trends.”

Such resonance was unprecedented
in our Collaboratory.
Silence,
now compromised by some soft slight snoring sounds,
continued.

“This bilateral balancing algorithmic metaphor
notices Tit for Tat Win/Win game strategies
are left-hemisphere deduced
as either EgoTit or EcoTat,
while our laboratory’s right-hemisphere induces both EgoTit
and EcoTat more heuristically held
in alpha rhythms co-arising integrity
of +1 universal polynomial language
equals (-,-)0-sum-core,
a more co-present uniting interdependent web
of not yet Yang and not yet Yin double boundaries
in our internal yin/yang bilateral spacetime labs

For prime 4D cooperative Tit/Tat
resilient DNA regenerative
optimization trends.”

I don’t recall
if this was the tipping over point I fell asleep
or if I did continue with more lucid notes

“Like the co-passionate original relationship,
health/secular and wealth/sacred co-empowering interrelationships
of thymine and cytosine,
adrenaline and oxytocin,
testosterone and estrogen,
x and y polynomial binomials 1 and 0
ecologically numerological
ego-unitarian integrity
and eco-habitat’s EarthUniverse balance
when (+) equals double-binding binomial (-,-)
interdependently health resilient
cooperatively harmonic,
not so chaotically competitive.”

I turned over
in this Collaborastoried silent rest,
wondering how long before recess
so we could go outside
to sing and Tea Dance
with the drag queen in the back row.

“Resonance, like music,
is not so chaotically competitive
and not so complexly,
darkly negative breeding negative
chronically stubborn left-hemisphere supremacy
secularizing predative either/or thinking
while evolutionary feelings,
if external v internal
then internal v external climates of dissonance, degenerative
mistrust within chronic dominant aggressives,
creating rabidly critical climates
of monoculturing despair,
hopelessness about future resilience
of healthy
humane
democratic
multicultural self/other-governing resonance
of all spacetime Collaboratories.”

It briefly occurred to me,
with some rush of paranoid alarm,
maybe the math professor’s laboratory
has no Off switch.

“Metaphor
within meta-collaboratory systems
within interdependent webs
and strings of bilateral time
and umbilical nature/spirit nutritional cords
of passionate co-attachment relationship
speak and listen back through space
toward our original tipping point
of bilateral co-arising
4Dimensional fractal/octave ZeroZone
timeless
spaceless
not insufficient not time
co-gravitating yang/yin health
found inside regenerative nature/spirit ZeroCore sums
co-arising win/win soul algorithmic networks
curiously exploring integral collaboratory health potential.”

I remember walking out
in side by side silence,
induced by sleep
or seduced by alpha rhythmic slumber
or deduced within Earth’s win/win gaming spacetime
I don’t remember
if the math professor
really was a drag queen,

But, I do remember
she was sitting
then standing,
listening
then speaking
from the back right through left row.

Wanted: Better Health Care Systems

I’ve heard it said,
and seen it done,

“This currency of capitalism
is the very venomous root of all evil.”

And, I’ve heard good cooperative capitalists say,
perhaps a bit too loudly,

“Not money, this root,
merely innocent paper and metal-based resource,
but human natural win/lose evolutionary greed,”

Selfish inhumane spirits indeed
are Earth’s rapacious demon seed.

This reminds me,
I’ve also heard it said,
and felt depressing loss,
that “Automated guns
are the root toxic cause of massive murder.”

I’ve also heard deer and quail unautomated hunters,
perhaps a tit for tat too defensively military unmindful,

“Not guns at moral fault,”
although not quite so innocent
ballistic metal-based,
or even plastic-paste resource
not the least bit recyclable,
“but human unnatural win/lose mental devolutionary madness.”
Shadowy spirits indeed,
such dark seed.

Seldom have I heard it said,
or felt lose/lose despairingly unresolved debate,
the better identified malignant root
of win/lose violent communications
and malignant divestments of anthropocentric inhumane nature,
is the unfortunate sociopathic RELATIONSHIP
between automated guns
and Might Makes Right
win/lose devolutionary natures,
darkly co-relational,
co-arising bipolar pathology issues
indeed
rotten detaching attachment seeds

Perhaps it would be helpful
if I could hear
what I have most often seen
transparently and vulnerably lose/lose
economic-political capital extracting
colonizing
enslaving
racist
sexist failure to notice
co-arising internal/external tool and currency invested relationships,

These most persistently unhealthy dual roots
of anti-ecological,
competitive,
win/lose economic failure
also the unfortunate politically sociopathic relationship
between capitalism’s commodifying monopoly
on FirstWorld accepted as entitled true value,
reasonable
culturally tolerated
historic might makes right
competitive left-brain dominant greed,
envy
detachment
fragmentation of left/right harmonic co-relational identity,
cognitive/affective dissonance chronic,
becoming acute,
critical ego/Earth climate dysfunctional lack of relationship risks
of long-term industrial revolutionary opportunities

Where MotherEarth
transparently and vulnerably,
courageously and curiously,
rightfully and co-responsibly nurtures
Either/Or polypaths
and Both/And polyphonic polynomials
producing/consuming polyculturally health-rooted outcomes,
nutritional win/win yields
more health/wealth cooperative
in bilaterally conscious minds,
humane hearts,
secular/sacred ungreedy
co-passioning souls.

ReDesigning US Monkeys

Designs we find democratically attractive
include designs for acquiring healthy trust powers
with all others to be positively infected
by our mutual discussion,
dialogue, respectful discernment,
our listening with silently authoritative skills
before responsibly speaking,

Democratic designs acquire cooperative consensual power
of a healthy
robust
resilient
care-giving super-majority,

Messiahs, economic and politically empowering actors,
producers of well-being,
empirical without imperialism,
without pietistic Raptures,
historical escape magic-hatches
removed from RealTime felt and thought integrity,
heart and mind synergy

Still actively listening for remaining white supremaists,
anti-democratic colonizing fundamentalists,
un-evangelicals too clear only about what we are against
while teaching Sunday School
and weekday extractive extorting capitalist competitions,
calling out fellow slum lords,
watching enviously while weapon sales
generously feed automated death lobbyists,
and mystify angry ecofeminists
about what we stand healthy for

Nondualistic, undividing natural health from spiritual wealth
responding to left-brain dominant designs
with monoculturing effects
disempowering into self-isolating fear
and anger
and bigotry,
lack of courageous curiosity
to empathize with anti-democratic intolerance.

This difference between democratic cooperative designs of attraction
and anti-democratic capitalist principles
of egotistical design,
incorporatistic
monoculturing extractions from MotherEarth refinements

Health care supported by all
who would replace aristocratically misshaped
distant patriarchal God the SunFather
with Gaia the Original AtHand EarthMother.

All who would replace left-brain dominant thinking
with left/right bicameral prominence
of win/win
faith/hope
thought/feelings
about ego health attracting eco-wealth
more than worrying too awfully either/or
win/lose much
about extracting ego wealth from everyday resident designers
eco-healthier
nondualistic SunGod/Gaia dialogue refiners
of romance
mythos
logos eco-habitat voices
with theo/democratic cooperative trust empowerment
enlightenment
enjoyment,
awesome sacred/secular wonder
revisiting lavishly holy/holonic designs.
