Ecology of Music

Healthy ecological relationships
are climates easier to hear
when instruments use words
as tools, not weapons,
for planting and harvesting less fear,
for sensing emotions win/win harmonic
win/lose contested, competing for supremacy
of auditory,
predatory self-investment.

That said, and preferably sung,
ecological systems
like songs
are compositions,
richly resonant communications
in complerxly interdependent webs
not sustained through dissonant lose/lose walls

Of entropic silence,
abhorred absence of nurturing communion,
emotionally stifling structure,
full-bodied thirst for hearts absorbing minds
are preferred to sensory detachment,
failure to notice unvoiced climates
of epic sounds unnatural
dis-spirited
unlistening nonperformance,
unmused holocaust.

While win/win vocal music listening circles
are great places to therapeutically hear
Earth’s integral echoing potential,
love’s mutually-held ego-sadness and eco-gladness,
climates of ecological wealth,
inside as outside resonance,
outside as inside co-opportunity
through this environment
of mutually-sung
strong-hearted resilience.

With hope to sing another way
an Other focused day
and night
through ecology’s brightest voice
for regenerate light.

Bored President

I once invested a year
as Board President.
Indeed, I was often a bored resident
of our State Affordable Housing Coalition.

My platform,
to speak grandly
of what was more of a healthy whim,
was for safe and beautiful affordable housing

Habitat is not just an optional frosting
on the State’s health
and wellness
and prosperity cake,

A nurturing confection
to become multiculturally accessible,
co-responsively owned and managed,
and filled with resident ingredients
trained and experienced,
invested and engaged
in supporting each other’s cooperative needs
and hopes
and polycultural faith
in healthy outcomes

Presiding ingredients as essential as 7-grain flour
AND the warm slow-flowing
rich and savory
golden brown honey
of an organic
home-grown
carrot cake.

At the end of my first non-lustrous,
unfrosted year of the healthy carrot,
we were planning our annual conference,
to include our annual meeting,
the election of officers
from a slate nominated by the Board of Directors.

During the Board’s planning meeting,
We first heard from the Executive Director
about the conference theme,
which was to be
“Housing is the Answer”
[to all white male privileged executive financial questions].

Housing is the exclusive answer
to my bigger and better health and well-being cake.

I undiplomatically suggested
perhaps this is a monocultural answer
to a nutritional question
hardly any voters are asking,

Which was, I further supposed,
the reason we have an Affordable Housing Coalition,
to gather our failing corporate wagons
of besieged non-profit housing developers
and their corporate survival lobbyists,
who usually make about three
or four
or even more, times
what their median income residents
take in each year.

I thought, instead,
that affordable,
responsible,
and compassionate housing,
cooperative environments
and structures
and support systems,
are part of the liberating
and secure health care question,
issue,
potential resolution,
integral climate for Earth’s health care,
gardening
and farming,
and feeding,
and repurposing,
and recycling
resident future through past EarthTribe compassion.

Next
we discussed our slate of more mentally healthy officers
for next year.

In the past,
we assumed by hoary precedent
that Presidents
stay president
until their board term expired,
Then we tried to talk some other ambitious,
yet already over-committed, extrovert
to be our unanimously acclaimed
presumably fearless
and nearly flawless
leader,

Second in real world presence and power
only to the Executive Director
and, OK,
maybe third,
after the Financial Director.

Even so,
Board members present and accounted for,
sitting in our wisdom busyness circle,
seemed discouragingly relieved
when I began this agenda item
by announcing that we need to find a new President
because I was clearly not hearing
their politically correct questions
without questions of my own agenda.

I was happy to nominate
a young up and coming Latino leader
from my home town at the time
who was new to the Board.

After the Annual Conference and Meeting,
and his quasi-democratic elevation by affirmation,

Off to the north side
of the chandeliered ballroom,
holding less than sacred space
for mostly Ivy League graduates
without the good sense to dim the lights
and dance to The Beatles together,
maybe sing “Let It Be”
in multicultural harmony,

The new President confided
that he shares my taste
for the health care giving and receiving cake
and the 7-grain housing
and the golden brown honey
of resilient Earth cooperative residents

But, does not feel
it is safe
or liberating
to talk about that
as President resident.

I was his first clue;
probably not his last.

Sacred Sciences

All sacred science
is health science.

All health care
is wealthy spirited care.

If there is such a thing
as an entirely secular science,
then it is probably an applied,
or “practical” technological discipline
like military science,
how to kill
while preaching a peace-loving society;
extraction science,
how to rape
while selling convenient anthro-hubris comfort
and pleasure;
actuarial science,
how to account for natural values
by discounting healthy spiritual economies
of power
fueling competitive disempowerment;
management science,
how to kill compassion
while fear-mongering anger management
patriarchal history goes to the winner business classes.

What is the most useful
and beautiful
sacred health science?

Most orthodox nature/spirits
might support theological
and historical/cultural scripture studies,
systematically analyzing
the co-passion out of everyday sacramental experience.

I was about to nominate
political empowerment science–
powers divine and profane,
regenerative and devilishly degenerative
articulating
and re-articulating health v pathology messages.

But,
I wonder why not nature’s choreography science
of ecological relationships
and the ethno-centric science of musical theory,
and agricultural permaculturing nutrition design sciences
for polyculturing health cooperative outcomes,
resilient wealth development
through composition of interdependent enculturing elements,
linguistic notation and keys
and frequencies,
evangelical matriarchal history,
ego/ecofeminist communion communication
changing spirited mythos
changing and unfolding re-natured logos?

Which reminds me
of right-hemispheric failure to grasp
any fundamental
literal
originally intended
great divide between scientific and artistic expressive experience,
between integral truths and beauties,
between empirical discovery of how artistic re-creation happens
and artistic expression of why empirical curiosity co-passions
pushing sometimes through vulnerable courage to be changed
by receiving sacred health arts and science
co-passioning skills.

Now, if I could just figure out
a health science hypothesis
about why,
at least theoretically,
I have so much trouble
getting to sleep
in a timely
and mindful
and peaceful
way.

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.

Presidential Comedians

I hear in the Ukraine
there’s a comedian
with no prior political experience
who may become their new President.

I wonder
they did not hear
we tried this model in the U.S.
a couple years ago

With predictable tragic/comedic results
not the least bit friendly
to public multicultural health
sold out
to support feudal monoculturing wealth
of not so funny kleptocrats.

Wandering Sorceress

Maybe because I have on my public health hat,
my ego searches for more ecotherapeutic subclimates.

Maybe because we wear our ego/ecotherapeutic climates inside,
Real Whole EarthTime bilaterally searches
for wealthier public hat health.

Maybe because I’m reading Sorceress and Her Wandering Apprentice:
Gaia and Her Wondering ReSourcefulNest,
Iain McGilchrist’s neurological left and right interdependent networks,
facing Bill Plotkin’s sometimes West and East,
North and South,
bilaterally cognitive and emotive,
health care secularly egocentric
and sacredly ecosystemic direction
erections,

Sometimes facing ego/ecological Wins and mono-illogical Losses
wearing revolutionary eruptive
ego-bilateral hats
invited to return home
to intrapersonal bosonic wombs
by winYin/winYang cooperatively effluent flow-power.
right-implicating/left-explicating…

But, regardless of redundant win/win cognitive resources
for invitations to health-solidarity,
more integrity powerful than win/lose hotly debated
emotive recourse
to liquidating win/lose wealth reservations,

I wonder wander
If national democratic encultured health problems
with unaffordable and inaccessible delivery systems
and win/lose political game-playing
could ever become sufficient
for all pathological capital over-infested conditions,
pre-existing
and newly emerged biotic left-yang information,

Would ego wanderers in ecosystems
be more effectively addressed
articulated
known
more resiliently co-acclimated
through international cooperative win/win dialogue
and decision-making
and global health care design
and effective wealth implementation
through non-violent co-empathic communication?

Conversations begun through cooperative invitations
to win/win bilateral therapies
may be intrapersonally
and interpersonally healthier,
more nurturing and nutritional,
than continuing with divided
blaming and shaming
defensiveness and hypocrisy
paranoia and schizophrenia trends
toward further rabid lose ego economic benefits
and lose ecosystemic power viability

Through degenerative white supremacist
nationalistic western supremacy
left-hemispheric dominant win/lose divisive debates
between right-mind prominent cooperative hats
wearing both/and win/win co-facilitators

Resourcing left-ego yang-dominant
competitive either/or ego/eco-manipulators
seeking how to optimize
integrity’s co-operative health/wealth trajectories.

Sinister v Golden Shadows

Not showers; shadows.

Yin speaks,
murmurs really

Talking GoldenShadow
whispering warmly
wetly
hypnotically
fascinatingly
in my left ear.

Notice:
In 2011-12
Bill Plotkin wrote

“Sinister Shadow, projected:
Donald, president of the United States,
refers to the Soviet Union
as ‘the Evil Empire’…
and actually believes this is true.”

True of all 2019 federations,
integrities,
synergy,
healthy wealth,
cooperative and competitive gestalts
he cannot LeftBrain-RightWing win
control over their losses
by narcissistically bullying
his own integral sacred RightBrain co-operative economy
hosting empowering gestalt co-ownership,
LeftBrain tasty satisfying research licks
while listening to RightBrain warm wet whispers.

What President Donald fails to first and last term notice,
RightBrain feels
EgoSubjects need Evil Empire bullying experience
to know other Evil Empires
when they LeftBrain see them
and intuitively Lose/Lose feel them
Right inside green cooperative health potentialities

Whispering integrity’s promise
despite sinister non-golden ruling shadows
projecting out to Eastern ancient bodhisattvas
and back to future Western Win/Lose dominance
projecting messianic capitalistic anthrocentrism
RightWing deforesting Earth again.

GoldenShadow rules against kleptocratic bad economic behaviors
divesting of emerging non-violently communicating global WinWin
counter-enculturing cooperative manners,
Namaste integrity
Left with Right
Ego secular dominance with EcoSacred prominence,

Golden Rules whispered
out of my left ear
to avoid ringingly offensive behavior
WinLeft/LoseRight trending toward RedLose/GreenLose
Ego/Eco dis-integrity double-binds,
degeneration where regenerative politics
was Earth’s original warm wet whisper
floating between overshadowing winds
greeting undershadowing waters

Which,
for this ZeroZone Zen-Taoist,
speaks through YangLeft/RightYin nondual bilaterally integral listening
for warm, wet wombed
Golden Yang/Yin co-operating Shadows
co-passioning Ego/Eco health-systemic
private and public
identity and solidarity win wins

So,
Cooperatively owned and managed
healthy GestaltParadise
is my non-sectarian
non-partisan
non-violent communication game
of mental/spiritual-health optimization,
best played
just the Golden opposite of Sinister Donald’s bully threats
and violently mono-kleptocratic
most cynical threatening promises
of further Lose/Lose bad health and climate un-care–
redSinister fear-mongering v greenGolden co-passionate
planting and harvesting.

Which is about as anti-Christian
and anti-re-ligion
and anti-integrity
and anti-healthy/wealthy families,
anti-domestic through extended RightBrain holonic gestalts
emerging healthy LeftBrain-RightMind bodies
experiencing wealthy RightBrain polypathic health
as any
and every
one EgoIdentity’s optimal green/red wealth

Could possibly NotHealth/NotWealth West/East climate pathology
project beyond a whisper
in 2019
heading for 2020 ReVolutioning Re-Ligious HealthService Integrity
non-sectarian
non-partisan
non-violent
GoldenRule globally cooperative.
