Wounded Integrity

Inspired, in part, by the neurological insights of Iain McGilchrist and the polycultural outcomes of Permaculture Design for a healthier-wealthier Earth, and the polyphonic healing potential of restorative justice systems, and the peace potential for non-violent communication, internal and external.

To totally trust Earth invites
no one perfectly correct health path

Suggests we will find no wealth path
totally corrupt.

To commit to our best way
for healthy now
in this quasi-wealthy place
and this RealTime,
with resources accessible
may be irredeemably wrong
only in our potential
for egotistic excesses,
non eco-woman Earthy enough.

Polypathic balance,
polyphonic harmony,
polynomial integrity,
polymorphic bilateral intelligence;
these are the love
and faith
and hope
and wisdom
of revolutionary compassion
for ourselves
as part of EarthOther

Forgiven climate trespassers
as we forgive
our inhumane ecological debts

Empowering further ego-recentering
in curious pathway nonjudgment
by patiently enlightening,
choice enlivening–

Past Yang left-brain autonomous,
Future Yin right-hearted interdependent–

Ego/Eco-systemic experience,
bilateral balancing memory,
healing compassion’s doubled
yet untroubled image.


Summary note from deepest and most repressed chakra voice:  Some of us are penises, homo and hetero, some of us are vaginas, cooperative and competitive, but all of us are equal in being assholes, with potential for pollution and for fertilization.


Healing BodyMinds

After Yang’s struggle
seismic seizures

Dawn’s Yin’s peace
without grasping
even life v death

Before Yang’s next struggle
battling ego’s timeless absence

Like Left hemisphere’s
embodied dominance,
shadow subject
of objective dreams

Then Right hemisphere’s energy prominence,
bilateral compassion;

Yang’s ego-natural body
reincarnating Yin’s primordial
eco-spirited mind

Where polynomial 1
seizes 0
to make polypathic 1,
and not not reproducing polyphonic 0,
and every revolving
hypersuasive tipping point

HolyWinded Spirit’s Earthly journeys–
Wealthiest introspection
for healthiest extraspection;
atomic images
becoming shivered waves.


Social Engagement

She says she’s fine with it

With social distancing

It’s her normal defiant
absence of resonant integrity.

In fact,
thanks to the magic of World Wide Webs
she now has all day
to bask in messages she can choose
as resonant
and “bad” humored dissonant
social engagement
and political disengagement,
and disempowering
now her whole day/night choice
of sounds good-humored sung
and bad-rumored hung
out for risky social distance voice.

Polyphonic prosody
is like polypathic integrity
except older,
often wiser,
and wealthier.

Harmonic humored sounds
predict virally rumored rounds
of global ego/eco-therapy,
bicamerally wiser resonance,
bilaterally health systemic resilient
and wealth politically economic

Power tensions,
as my oppositionally defiant daughter
might more mindfully intend,
resound “Fine!!!!!!!!!!!”
roared like a weapon
might not(not) question double-rewinding Fine?
if you could ask me nicely for a hug
so we return to smiling, Fine

As pastel hugs
and shrugs
dawning viral light.


Sighed Earth’s River

I heard a new term today,
sighed Earth’s River,
“spiritual intelligence.”

I have become familiar with
cognitive intelligence,
before that emotional intelligence,
before that contextual intelligence,
similar to climate intelligence
throughout life’s tributaries,
and root well-springs.

My waters do not claim these are strengths;
more familiar as opportunities
for further flowing redevelopment.

just as I am not entirely clear
where emotional awareness ends
and environmental noticing begins,
so too,
where might Earth’s physical context end
and sacred Spirit’s awareness transcend signs
sighs heard?

I wonder,
rooted in my ego-centering experience,
if feelings flow toward ego inside wet identity
as contextual warm intelligence
ebbs from eco-outside co-investment;

If eco-political context,
empowering and disempowering
natural flowing energies,
baptizes with awe and wonder,
spiritual intelligence of universal individuation,
river-bedded identity
co-arising heart-felt rhythms,
surfing up and down,
smiles clown
and frowns crown

Polypathic signing language,
polyphonic rhythm,
polyculture flowing systems,

Analogical EarthNature
unveiling metaphoric Spirits,

Secular purpose
compelling sacred meaning

Signing reasons,
sighing seasons
pushing up
and flowing down.


Invitation to EarthHealth

Again, with Adam Robersmith,
Taking It Further emphasizing cooperative value choices
in each compassionate win/win moment
of sacred economic/ecological dialogue,
covenants of non-violent respect for multigenerational
resilient outcomes.

What co-passionately discerning choices
can we make today
the next day
next week
next month
next season
next year of seasons
restoring environmental
and cooperative economic
and multiculturally healing justice?
Rather than punishing ourselves
and others
for violent win/lose past
privileged injustice
rooted in fear
climates of internal monoculturing ego-anxiety.

In sacred covenants we have already engaged,
what healthy choices for extended family resilience
do we already support
with win/win cooperative environmental gratitude
and multiculturally interdependent
binomial left/right
20/20 empowering EarthJustice?

Let us refuse to remain stuck
in Ego-LeftBrain v. Eco-RightBrain fear
climate anxiety
systemic dispassionate despair,

Instead choosing one universal
regenerative win/win
health-faithful action
in every compassionate moment.

Let us remember
our Universalist/Catholic
Earth-multicultural heritage
and engage inherited BiLaudato Si wisdom,
On BiCameral Care for Our Common Creation,

To chart restoring a just,
globally holy holonic,
and sacredly resilient path
compassionately communioned forward

With other Thames River Valley goodfaith communities
Hearing Youth Voices
for FRESH-New London County
indigenous and immigrant and emigrant
elite and non-elite
non-violent listening

To invite this day’s cooperative stewardship
communication of Land
and Water
and Health
and Energy
and All Sainted Souls
democratic EarthTrust

Through this Mountain of PeaceSpace
flows a 20/20 BiCameral River
of polypathic healing EarthTime,
Here as also Now,
Safe as also Sufficient,
Peace as also JustUs,
NonViolence as also CoPassion.


Better Public HealthCare Planning

How much simpler
and yet vastly more complex,
diversely resonant,
past decisions to hire the credentialed professional elite
also choices not to hire a charismatic

And how much more resilient
urgently cooperative
corporate win/win covenant repercussions might have been
if we stopped compartmentalizing,
and started intersectionalizing,
co-arising and co-gravitating
Win/Win assertiveness with non-violent communication Training,
CoInvestment Practice,
Multicultural Restorative Justice experience,
Truth and reconciliation,
Remuneration of cooperatively-owned health values,
Interdependent ecological and theological merit,
Compassion wealth.

If we could hear her outloud notice:

I feel sometimes angry
sometimes fearful,
sometimes courageous
sometimes curious,
and always disappointed
that I took this vulnerable risk
to transparently offer all that is my leadership gift
and then experience why this is still not enough:

Because I lack leftbrain dominant credentials,
Because I do not speak with cold white patriarchal dispassion,
Because I do not know disconnection as capital-business as usual,
Because I will not despair
of win/win felt outcomes
as if win/lose default unrealistic.

What then,
following this assertively non-violent vulnerability,
this win/win compassion,
this transparent noticing of:

Systemic Win/lose trending toward Lose/Lose monocuturalism,
Systemic racism without racist system conscious intention,
Militarized Patriarchalism,
LeftBrain dominant Either/Or deductive-reductive
Linear cause/effect logic,
Analogical purpose over metaphoric meaning,
over Integral HealthWealth Win/Win Ecology?

What win/win compassionate ego/ecotherapeutic truth
and restoring peace
and reconciling EarthClimate Justice
might we more critically return to next?

Perhaps I might find our communal life safe enough
to share:

How angry I am
that I cannot hear our cooperatively-owned anger
that both neoliberal and neoconservations
of military-industrialized capitalism,
that worship of winlose and lose/lose violently transparent intent
continues blatantly budgeting to invest in more war,
in more hate-crimes,
in more automatic death sentences,
in more EarthWealth faster
and deeper
extraction of multigenerational resources,
in more corporate short-term blind investors in win/lose landfalls
instead of cooperative owner-workers invested in win/win health.

I am angry
and terrified,
deeply and widely win/lose disappointed
and lose/lose despairing
when I cannot hear
and feel
and see
and know
our mutual terror
and anger
about this Earth
and Earth HealthTribe
and Positive Energy Democracy CRISIS
of Ego v Eco
of Yang v Yin
of Left v Right
of Thought v Feeling
of Secular v Sacred
of West v East
of North v South
of Elite v NonElite
of White v Black
of Either v Or
of Bipolar v Dipolar
of Competitive Arising v Cooperative CoGravitation
of 1 ZeroZone Nomial v Non-0 Zone Bilateral Prime Relationship.

I am angry
and terrified
internal and external lose/lose climates
worship Capitalism
while marketing greed as
Catholic GoodNews of Holy-Elite Predative Communion.

Sacred meals and global EarthHabitat
separating us in our shadowed silos
of nontransparency
and nonvulnerably hiding the bread and wine reserves
violently defended, if necessary,
codependent absence of integrity,
positive communication,
cooperative EarthClimates
of polypathic health,
polyphonic resonance,
polycultural wealth,
universal sacred cooperative employment
co-invested in mutual warm listening
rich polycultural paths

Angry and terrified,
courageous and curious.


We Began Somewhere NonViolent

We all began somewhere
not our own.

All life began somewhere
within Earth’s regenerative systems
not our own,
as did Earth
Her EcoSelf.

No one is autonomously entitled
to sustained ego-awareness,
much less self-promoting narcissism.

Earth began someplace
beyond His/Her own north v south,
west revolving east
re-evolving west,
inside v outside,
inhale v exhaling organic
ergodically balancing life systems

Regenerating in and out
down and back up
and tipping conscious points
in seasonally revolving light,

Earth’s ecosystemic wholeness
also may be
and become
bilateral political correctness,
democratically self-correcting
only if His/Her outcomes
are multiculturally developing
non-violent regenerative
nurturing growth,
empowerment of organic Earth’s entire
sinking ship, on which non-20/20
competitive verbal debates
struggle against
cooperative non-violent,
and typically non-verbal dialogue,

Actions and reactions of co-passion
may be Left politically correct
through intentionally cooperative economics
and communication
where Right politically correct
has unintentionally devolved into unhealthy
too rabidly competitive
win/lose capital-driven
[not full-body health derived]
economics supporting apartheid segregation
of multiculturally nurturing histories,
too distant from GoldenRule internal/external Original Intent
for wealthy regenerative outcomes,
inhaling expansions,
exhaling contractions,
meeting in transitional cooperative inspirations…

Climates distracted by dissonant disempowerment,
bullying by supremacist inhumane Elites
gratuitously ungrateful
overinfested in negative Yang violence,
and micro-economic EarthCommons aggression,
mis- and dis-communication,
absence of positive-positive relationship,

Financial divestments
against that sacred Other
from which we are all derived,
whether theologically
or ecologically,
or both/and,
while playing win/lose power games–
politically incorrect.

EarthSource is a living planet,
but threatened now,
where correctness is not democratically,
revolutionary healthy regenesis

And incorrectness
is plutocratically
leftbrain too Yang-dominant
veering off toward a too autonomous
too anthropocentric
pathologically degenerating EarthClimate.

RightWing elitism,
measuring loyalty by
Either we are all orthodoxically uniform
Or they are wrong,
rather than
Polyculturally inclusive
healing monoculturally exclusive
nested scales of healthy reverse-hierarchy,
wherein appreciative
curiously warm invitation
overwhelms mere tolerance
of win/lose historical separations,
dissonance between cognitive left
and affective right

Creolization succeeds
and supercedes leftbrain’s contingent ego-colonization,

RightBrain ecofeminist circles
surround leftbrain egopatriarchal
autonomously competitive hierarchies,

LeftWing natural interdependent correctness,
non-elitist green democracy,
from compassionate EarthSource intent.


Reasoned Bicameral Balance

A rational frame of reference
for multicultural Taoism,
preferred by UniversalYang
and deferred with UnitarianYin,
regards experiences of systemic racism
and white straight male privilege
not only within each individual,
but within each community,
each faith community,
each ecopolitical energy-organizing sector
across this global EarthTribe.

This Taoistic reason/feeling approach
to big systemic issues
is more tipping point analytical,
probably inspired by polypathic bicameral Bucky Fuller,
And not so much monopolized by
micro-identity ego-afflicted elitism,
supremacy ideologies,
victimization debates
about how mine
is unfortunately bigger than yours.

Tao mindfulness
would prefer not to hear,
much less see or feel
Yang abusing
or even neglecting victimized Yin,
further Business As Usual
sometimes violent
Left hemisphere predations
or even verbal cultural misappropriations
depreciating healthy values
of cooperative Win/Win Right hemisphere resonance.

and other universal either/or egopatriarchal thinkers
and unitarian both/and ecofeminist feelers,
prefer the non-violent web
of secularYang with sacred Yintegrity,
bilaterally balanced
egopatriarchal competitive Type Yangs
fascinated with
and ceaselessly curious about
ecofeminist coopertive Type Yins,

Written dipolar co-arisingly
across the hemispheres of each heart,
each left with right non-violently winged
bi-hemispheric universal Soul,
and written across the outdoor climate geospheres
of Earth,
more multiculturally inclusive
on this larger stage
of healthy democratic energy,
more resilient polyculturing empowerment.


Gadflies and HoneyBees

Where to begin
in the middle of cold and dark
winter’s solstice,
healthy green life’s time
of impeachment,

Where does this all rightfully
and left sacredly end?

These are expansive gadfly questions,
issues of complexly dipolar reason,
leftbrain dominant
either-or thinking
we are either thinking or feeling
rather than conscious of both,
and neither sufficient
without the necessary other.

and passion
win competitive evolutions
only to lose cooperative revolutionary
dipolar and co-arising,
bipolar and co-exhaling.

We dissociate cognitive reason
from rightbrain’s more original intuitive-sourced feelings.

like balanced Taoists,
advocate our 7th Principle
about interdependent
co-passioning webs
of non-violent life communing love,
cooperative empowerment,
bicameral egopatriarchal/ecofeminist
NonZero-Sum Win/Win contextual
counter-capitalism multicultural,
WinLeft’s liberal egolove
to WinRight’s healthiest conservational ecolife.

So, let’s not continue
beginning with a full-spectral blue
and red
and ultra-violet synergy,
but confine our response
to questions not yet leftbrain asked

And notice, instead, dark and light green,
in-between sunny courage yellow
and curious and long-hidden orange,

Merging and emerging
what comes after RightWing Red depressions
of Earth’s healthiest well-being values.

If Earth’s children are, sometimes
not particularly egocentric,
not especially competitive,
more artistic and wounded, perhaps,

And not necessarily human,
maybe a chick,
or a colt,
a cub,
a matriarchal egg, etc.

you are a Wise EcoFeminist Elder,
an organic gardener
looking out for your healthy flock,
your child with disabilities,
your own chronic climate anxiety of win/lose stress,
expecting Aspergerish cooperative co-arising warm compassion
in-between memories of win/lose competitions
and images of future win/win cooperative democratic empowerment
through co-invested polypathic communication,
polynomial relationship,
polyphonic compassion.

You probably would think/feel yourself merely reponsible
for protecting your co-empathic young
from white predative nationalist hate,
from self-unfulfilling prophets of egalitarian apartheid
without hope of interdependent healthy regenerativity,

You would probably want to be reassured that:

1. Your young adult understands what s/he will be hearing
is driven by leftbrain competitive
emotionally dissociated
deductive/reductive dominating
monocultural identity,
at best, no more elitist right
than non-elitist wrong.

2. The right to free and responsible speech
(U-U Principle Four)
has a reverse corollary,
usually unconsciously assumed

S/he has the freedom not to listen
to unfree
potentially toxic
one-sided presentations
and leftbrain lopsided verbal debates
with straw ecofeminist
cooperative social investors,
indigenous citizens of sacred MotherEarth
before denizens of any nation-identified State,
or supremacist Tribe.

3. I would not think/feel
I am “coddling” my adolescent dependents,
whether human in formation
or a yearling pony,
by inviting them to anticipate discussion
with win/win non-violent intent,

That we are good
and natural
and healthy
and democratic
to assume restorative green resilience
of all ecosystems
and all subclimates,
whether internal or external,
whether yin or yang,
whether unitarian or universal,
whether ecofeminist or egopatriarchal,
whether sacred Left interdependent ecosystemic
or secular Right egocentric capitalists,

Dialogue is always a healthier choice
for a wise green energy democracy
then violent
overly competitive debates,
with zero-sum win/lose relational/nutritional assumptions

As if win/lose capitalism makes democratic nurturing sense
despite win/win empowering green
original sacred-mind and secular-body
bilateral revolutionary intent,

Where rational regenerative history
greets intuitive resonant mystery
with deep green learning respect.

4. And we are not really ‘coddling’
to rationally expect non-violent discussion
begins with compassionate win/win listening
for points of cooperative agreement,

Usually more significant
than win/lose points of runaway disagreement,
regardless of cultural color appreciation
or species gratitude,
or the healthier humor of leftbrain egopatriarchal dominance
passionate about cooperative rightbrain ecofeminist prominence.

Reason-rooted StraightWhiteMale gadflies
sometimes have trouble hearing
and appreciating the interdependent power
of 7th interdependent identity principles
in balance with
1st co-relational
co-passionate dignity principles

Of egalitarian freedoms to speak
and interdependent responsibilities
to listen for win/lose issues
to discern win/win cooperative resolutions.

Gadflies may tolerate
dissonant monoculturing fascist risks,
rather than resonantly co-responding
with confluent
interdependent opportunities,
which are more of a honey bee
kind of humming green consciousness,
both wealthy mind-thought
and healthy body-felt.
