Mr. and Mrs. Spratt

My father,
who tolerated no fat,
predicted I would do nothing right
or good,
much less healthy,
in my lifetime.

My mother,
absorbing nothing too mean or lean,
felt I could do nothing wrong
now,
so probably later as well,
welfare wellness.

Neither my father,
mother,
or I
seemed particularly surprised
when I rose and fell
somewhere in-between
these two extremes,
as do we all
I suppose.

And yet I wonder
about my father’s hierarchical value structure,
placing perfection on Earth’s highest
biggest
thickest welfare state.

And remain silently awed
by my mother’s reverse-hierarchical terms
endearing depths of greatest compassion
for who is deeper
and thereby more robust
than whom.

I suppose this means something
about where sexuality conjoins
sensuality,

About triangular cognitive structures
amid diamond infolding co-relationships,
about 1’s
intersecting 0-Zones,
about light
foreshadowing dualdark reminders
of perfection,
about fullness of time
within timeless absence,
eternally co-arising.

Although,
neither Yang’s ominous
hierarchical value predictions
nor Yin’s generously interdependent
deep learning hopes,
sexual and sensual,
were all that helpful
for adolescent me,
struggling with spectral we.

A Healing Society

When directors of social justice,
whether parents
or teachers
or community leaders
or religious leaders
and eco-political livers,
lovers address EarthJustice
by recommending immersion experiences,
journeys to commune with hurting populations
and species
and systems,

We provide a better justice service
by remembering that most vulnerable populations
suffering from diverse systemic subclimate pathologies
are not human societies
associations
communities
families
individuals eco-political.

If social justice advocates
have any doubts about this,
please consider communing with trees,
producers of renewable oxygen,
useful for the soul function of breathing;
conversing with topsoil nurturers
helpful for recycling nutrition;
consider an immersion experience with boundary swamps
and mouths of rivers
quenching salty ocean thirst,
harboring birds
immersing with tasty insects
rodents
snakes.

In this face of Earth Not-Justice,
we find outdoor life
a long immersion journey
from infant crawling on picnic blankets
to ocean front death shrouds,
tombs within meadows and gardens,
woodlands fueled by radiant sunlight,
fertilized by fully committed bodies
of fibers
fleas
fish
fowl
fungi
frogs
foliage.

Where
and when
and how
could such unfinished immersion end
with EarthJustice?

Although not sure,
not whole,
perhaps this journey only begins
and ends
with outdoor people,
longing to return to solidarity
with trees
and tides
and tale-winds.

Elder Journey’s Cooperative Request

The monthly lunch crowd
reinvented our Elder Journey Association
traveling together toward renewal,
resilient
restorative justice,
resonant co-redemption,
revival of reconnecting
through this Great ReTurning Communion.

Our Green Sanctuary Statement:

Love is always unfinished
Green cooperative health business,

Like Life and Hope’s potential integrity,
Living as One, at most, wealthy
by pregnantly listening Womb,

One Green Sanctuary
for future’s distant win/win healthy wealth
continues co-investing…

Cooperative Green Love
is always unfinished health business,

Like Life and Hope’s potential
resilient synergy
journeying hand in winning hand
with resonant nature-spirit integrity.

What we have together learned
of robust reviving communication
absorbs Judith Campbell’s suggestion,
“When your heart speaks,
take good notes.”

And we have listened for greener
more resonant expression,
reincarnation,
“When our heart sings together
we write healthiest choreography
for this sanctuary dance,
co-investing in yet further
younger media arts co-opportunities
of centering community,
resilient senior cooperative household communication
surrounded by healthy green outdoor education centers
for energy democratization,
value and disvalue decommodification,
transparent transport and vulnerable residential reco-feminization
of power
values
energy
for revolutionary cooperative ownership journeys.

We, in solidarity,
would be trans-generators of greening society
toward multiculturing health-wealth Futures.

We each, before we were born,
already experienced compassion
felt in tender embrace
of a nurture nutrition
communal communicating EarthMother
and Her Gaian NewBorn

Bonding our felt original ZeroZone womb,
warmly inviting
and nutritiously wet
Holonic Spirit,

Anima Mundi’s Elder RightBrain
universal ZeroSoul
uniting renewing experiences of EgoLeft
distinctly emerging identity
from undifferentiated and interdependent EarthWeb
of EcoRight
effluent Yin with affluent Yang
flow-strong healthy GreenWombed Habitat.

From such radically inclusive and cooperative origins,
We journey toward an extended family
global in our win/lose hurt
and either/or reductive sadness
to own ancient patriarchal revival opportunities
as both/and
Green/Red Gaian co-redemptive risks
cooperatively sponsored blood and water sacrifices
resonantly planted,
resiliently harvested.

For this Green and Blue and Red,
and all multicultures in-between,
Sanctuary journey,
we invite all Time,
all valuables
all health
all energy
all wealth
all invocations
all gentle compassion,

All co-investments
in always unfinished Love
for journeys into further
Green CoOperative Health Business.

Now, who brought dessert?

Green Sanctuary Propositions

Who are you most longing to become?

How we answer this is different for an ancient rooted tree
than for a recent immigrant
searching for a niche of stable self-sufficiency.

Who we already have become together
feels more important to thriving groves of WiseElders
than to adolescent immigrants
actively learning creolizing bilingual skills
still coming together for survival.

So too, offering Sanctuary,
becoming Sanctuary,
inviting Sanctuary,
is rooted in Green complex nutrients
for feeding
and warm wet watering
whispering easier
cozier
more accessible nutrients
for everyone–
but especially appreciated
by more recent emigrants
to a new garden of hospitality,
of multicultural cooperation,
of shared cooperative residence
and patterns of safe,
sometimes exciting, new transport
toward healthiest wealth.

A gardener’s intent
to both offer and share sanctuary
may provoke well-nurtured gratitude
in a recent annual immigrant,
but a more sleepy and self-satisfied entitlement
in mature seniority of perennials,

Yet, primordially feeling and speaking,
we are all immigrants newly becoming together
with each new dawn,
and determined to cooperatively rest
in grateful dreams
with each renewing dusk.

Who are we most belonging
by becoming Green Sanctuary
together?

Some guilds of mutual interest
and investment
invite growing a cooperative sanctuary for food,

Other teams choose cooperatively owned and managed shelter,
gardens,
farms,
transporting cars and trucks
and bikes and horses,

Others focus on cooperatively owned and managed soil,
observing that democratically co-invested compost,
like capital,
recalls healthy savings in a nutritional bank
for cooperative food constituents.

And so it went,
whether Republican or Democrat,
Libertarian or Green,
Who we want to become together
is more cooperatively resilient,
more robustly compassionate
and co-empowering,
so less aloof
alone
smug and self-satisfied
about our competitive win/lose economic
and partisan histories of colonization;

When, truth become remembered,
we are all reborn naked
and needy
immigrants.

The 2020 Restorative Justice Proposal

It may have been the WiseElders Circle
that commissioned the GrantWriter’s first proposal.
Yet others claim it was the Young Adults,
And Pfizer prescribes New London’s original health proposal
came from their own blood stream advocates,
And the Coast Guard Academy remembers an early defensive proposal
to heal and protect local drinking waters
going more cooperatively coastal.
But, to each and all,
the GrantWriter responded,
as I recall renewing atmosphere:
Resiliently successful co-investment proposals
cannot be written in just one academic
unfelt Voice
of monotheistic
monocultural
monopolistic choice.
So each congregation,
organization,
affiliation
sent a delegation of four
to a multi-party convention.
Each participant was a member
of the Green
and/or Libertarian
and/or Democratic
and/or Republican MultiParty,
or agreed to roleplay warm familiarity
with one of these four primal platforms
investing primary priorities
in economically cooperative campaigns
and politically therapeutic co-investment intentions
not aggressively looking for full-out contention
to attract mediattention,
unmediated chronic tension.
Instead of debates
within and between these four Parties,
the GrantWriter invited small groups of four
to take turns listening
to repeated questioning,
“Who are we most longing to become?”
Dialogue ensued
not encouraged to research every naked win/lose competitive difference;
But, instead,
to capitalize win/win cooperative opportunities
to include highest priorities
as those voiced by all four health/wealth co-arising Party voices.
The GrantWriter notes:
Dear New London mayoral candidates
for all four Parties on our 2020 ReVision ballot,
The diverse congregations of New London
invite you to attend our Cooperative Dialogue Convention;
Not to speak,
but to listen,
as each small group reports out their longings,
findings,
truths with win/win consequences,
What each of us most longs to co-invest
to cooperate
to come and go viral
across all cultures
climates
and living systems,
Acts of cooperative compassion
for healing individual residents,
families and taxpaying households,
and untaxed community service properties,
communities of co-investment,
healthier resonant climates
and wealthier resilient multicultures.
Think of it as, for you, our guests, a silent auction
where everybody wins
because no one’s health is down and out
for highest bid.
Feel free to take pictures
and copious notes.

Greatest Story Never Told

This story remains unfinished
as do all the best tales told.
Yet I must warn you
it has a happy ending,
not dystopian,
although not a finished
political utopia,
Ever After LoveLife.

Where this story begins
remains a mystery,
like a definition for “Tao”
more obscure than refining Yang
with Yin sublime co-relationship,

Which is, and is not,
equivalent with white and black,
and all curious colors in-between
masculine and feminist,
left-brain dominant strength
and right-brain prominent flow;
liberties egalitarian and freedoms interdependent,
powers and passions,
climates and cultures,
natures and nurtures
secular and sacred,
ego- and eco-systemic
wealth as health,
love as life…

I believe
somehow
this unfinished end
revisits our Green Sanctuary origins,
Earth as Eden,
Humane life as divine love
where Gaia danced with interior/exterior humane voices
long before humanity was a tremor in Her womb
of left-brain dominant verbal becoming retold history.

Whether such a vast stage of DNA origin,
hoary with memoried and imagined Time,
affluently historical
and effluently cultural,
this is,
or hopes to one day become,
The Greatest Story Not Ever Told,
if only because we have been so Business As Usual
win-losing recycling spirals
conjoining Alphas and Omegas,
great transitional beginnings
with endings not yet visible,
or even vicariously heard,

Not ever completing
all Win/Win interdependent co-relationships
TaoTime invites
offers
with compassion,
gratitude,
curious courage,
transparent vulnerability.

But, you were asking about New London
in particular place and time,
a Connecticut town of about 30,000,
home of the Coast Guard
and Pfizer
and a Unitarian-Universalist Center
everybody knows as All Souls
and most every multicultural body repeats
their logo,
“Where all Souls are welcome.”

Strangely enough
I think the GrantWriter
was from out of town,
without any long-term relationships in New London
government
or business
or our eclectic religious sector.

The GrantWriter:

Such profound disconnection
feels uncomfortable
discomforting
not comfitting
inappropriate
for growing deep and wide compassion roots.

So, I did what I do,
I wrote an unfinishable proposal
about how to grow a resiliently healthy love life
in and with and for New London,
about why we each and all need a new win/win cooperative theory
and practice
for regenerative climate development;
so also against degenerative overheated
and frozen anti-health development.

Too much of my own learning experience
emphasized the sterile science
and dyspeptic un-communioned arts
of grief about lose/lose monoculturing climate terror trends,

So what would the opposite polycultural outcomes
of such environmental disaster feel like?
Look like?
Taste like?
Sound like?

How would we reattach to sacred gratitude
as a win/win species?
Now living in side-by-side autocratic/democratic silo communities
wrestling with win/lose economic capital-hoarding competition models
for natural and spiritual and financial survival.

Where are our active gratitude models
for win/win healthy wealth optimization?

One day
listening to Pamela Sparr,
not New London talent,
but encountered in an All Souls reading circle book,
Justice On Earth,
we cooperatively evolved five steps
Out of Our Silos and Selves:

1) Propose a bolder win/win,
left/right,
ego/eco-balancing
prophetic resilient image
of a mutually compassionate ecopolitics.

2) Develop communally incarnated courage
multicultural curiosity
capacity to listen
naturally left and spiritually right
ego-eco-theo-logically taoistic nutritional.

3) Look for win/win gratitude experiences
outside our side by side religious sanctuaries
and inside organic health farms
of resiliently ego-masculine
resonantly eco-feminist communication.

4) Engage with radical outdoor Earth voices
for interdependent co-passion
building up and out
and down and in
multicultural communion.

5) Increase win/win
polycultural gratitude
for health/wealth inspired
co-refining secular/sacred experience
of cognitive/emotive
culture/climate transformation.

 

Note:  First in a series of integral win/win cooperative health system proposals.
