Positive Directions

If you have some negative judgment
aimed directly at me, and only me,
I prefer,
in fact require,
expect,
demand you verbally
and directly confront me
with that distancing blame,
assaulting my ignorance
and failures of compassion,
too active dispassion,
furthering Earth’s emerging win/lose dissonance,
violence,
toxic climates
and egocentric narcissism;

Or, informed more fully by nonviolent communication

I am feeling sad,
disappointed in our relationship,
shut down,
angry
because I want our mutual compassion,
my vulnerability to you,
and yours to me,
our cooperatively-held trust,
to invite your directly communicated curiosity,
your hypothetical questions,
your transparency
honesty
integrity
when you observe some message from me
that feels like it carries negative energy,
lack of compassion,
too assertive
past a tipping point of aggression,
a potential trigger for past win/lose stress,
traumatic experience,
miseries of unfortunate events,
dissociation,
cognitive/affective dissonance,
the momentary despair
of not being fully listened to
with compassionate appreciation,
as we each deserve
within this interdependent web
of win/win polypathic
polyphonic
polyculturing
ego/eco-political life.

Sacred Discernment

Perhaps a way to turn
from failed
and often violent
retributive justice
to grab healthy hold
of restorative justice

Would ask,
What is this deep difference
between discerning judgment
and moralistic judgment?

To discern,
and not to condemn,
is mutually empowering
and not autonomously powering over another,
against all Others potentially suspicious,
falling short of my own godlike Mark,
Imprimatur,
Papal Seal of good personal housekeeping.

Moralistic judgment
is a win/lose game
always casting oneself
and one’s own
as protagonist,
self-righteous wise Prosecutor,
representing your State’s infinite not-listening Wisdom.

Discerning judgment
is a win/win game
of cooperative
co-invested compassion.

Discerning judgment
begins with listening for what we already share
in common point of view.

Moralistic judgment
seldom finds time
for such resonant celebration
in cooperatively-held sorrow
and joy,
personal defeat
and political triumph.

Active win/win discernment
bears more humbly in mind and heart and voice,
Do not tear apart
what we can’t put back together
again
and again
and again

As faithfully as healing sunrise
and therapeutic sunset;
As mysteriously
and curiously restoring moon rise
and resonant moon fall.

Resonant Judgments

I would not judge someone
and then some dreadful thing
or some nasty place
or some too distant time.

Let me, instead,
invite judgment from
that one relationship in real spacetime,

Until we each and all resiliently find
what we need
and want
for healthy wealth co-acclimation

Open,
free of negative judgments against,
free to
and for cooperatively changing transubstantiation
known and felt
into warm seasoned creolicizanation
for solidarity
of resilient vulcanintegrationalization,
intra-
and inter-nations.

I would instead be judged in wealthy favor
by some singing simpler one,
healthier flavored for some wavey-swinging hyphenated thing,
abundantly resonant for some pleasantly compliant place,
rooted in solid resilience
for 4D mind-maps left multiculturing race
and emotive time’s
right mind
rhythm seasoned grace
pace of timeless space

Let us inside trade instead,
invite outside gratitude from,
that one perennially cooperative nutritional relationship
in real bilaterally timed Earth space,
timeless intrapersonal place,
humane-divinely transpiring
turning
twisting
twirling
teasing
untruncating grace.

Restoring Supreme HealthJustice

My litmus test question
for supreme and more everyday justice makers
organic bakers
RealTime fakers:

Have you read research results
comparing retributive justice unhealthy outcomes
to those of good-faith restorative
cooperative
justice processes?
Repairing green reparations
rather than locking up long-held repressive sexist lies
and throwing away liberty’s dwindling healthy discernment key
ring of bilateral co-passionate consciousness.

Could you justify voting against abortions
for those you have raped and pillaged
and still wear the mask of restoring justice
for all broken minds and embodied hearts?

When restorative criminal justice
invites and complies with WinWin peace-filling standards,
how much greater the legal-moral constitutional system
inviting and complying with transparent WinWin democracy
standards of and for co-operating health
with wealth
rather than
ego-eco anti-therapeutic lack of mutual invitation

Leaving rapacious room for anthro-centric stages
of monoculturing punishment,
retribution,
revenge
less sacred
and more secular locking up wild ecofeminist creativity
passionate restoring nativity

For historical Win-Lose evolutionary naivety
supplanting cultural Win-Win SpaceTime relativity.

A Few Years Back and Flowing Forth

A few years back,
in the prior millennium,
1993 to be more precise
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
born without a stage name
had his book entitled “The Evolving Self” published,
by which he meant The ReGeneratively Nutritious Flowing Self,
but he was probably shy of too-long, user-unfriendly, titles,
so we have this more evolutionary psychology
which is also about economic and politically cooperative investment
as recommended by mental health professionals,
not that they necessarily are all that ecopolitically correct themselves
when it comes to public health priorities,
but health science trends have been favoring ecologically helpful,
rather than condemning to starvation and thirst and chemical poisoning, medicine
for challenged landscapes and climates for awhile now.
Couldn’t say exactly,
but, you know,
a few years back.

So University of Chicago Psychologist Dr. Csikszentmihalyi,
as, presumably, many other health advocates,
worrying about all Earth’s many pathologies,
ended the prior millennium’s story of self-evolution,
self-and-other redemption,
with some questions
here posed to CEO of Earth’s ReGenerative Times,
a richly-hued and deeply nutritious paper
too often ignored by her health professional acolytes.

Csikszentmihalyi: What are your thoughts,
your nutritionally evolving trends,
toward forging a ReGenerative Futures Fellowship?

CEO: My health and nutrition trends are your thoughts
toward our co-operative future.

Csikszentmihalyi: What kind of information about your ecopolitical environment
would be most useful for you to have first?
How could you get it?

CEO: I was born through histories of DNA nutritional information
about what feeds and what poisons our ecopolitical environment.

Cooperative power could better optimize
with stronger Left/ElderRight ecobalance,
so either/or deductive thinking
could also incorporate both/and polypathing ambivalent feelings,
so LeftBrain’s self-deluding fascination with reified oppositionals
could become re-embedded
within ecological history’s nondual co-arising appositionals.

So, first information regarding regenerative light as nutrition we already have.
We could better comprehend this syncretic information
with a massive enculturation of bicamerally balancing ecopolitical landscapes
and subclimates.

Csikszentmihalyi: At present, what are the major obstacles that prevent regenerative health from developing in your community?

CEO: Right hand up,
swearing on a Bible,
to patriotic God
to never tell a decompositional lie,
my biggest pathology is too much LeftBrain dominance
not only in my day to day ecopolitical choices
and value-judgments
and priorities for helpful organic co-operative therapies
but also through our AnthroElder language-listening skill development
of and for nature/spirit dynamic creative redemption stories.
Our self-optimizing future fellowship potential
told through folk-tales deeply influenced by, and enhancing, cocktails,
or, even better, more organically-centering substances.

Czikszentmihalyi: Are the problems mainly economic, political, or moral?

CEO: Yes.
Those three together,
rather than holding them less fruitfully apart.

Czikszentmihalyi: Do they involve lack of vision or creativity?

CEO: Absence of recreative vision
is imagination uninformed by evolutionary sciences,
bereft of Left-historic power greets Right-Her nutritional enculturation
as EarthTribe’s economic story of equivalent investment.
LeftBrain is historically-experientially orthodox,
and thereby longs for RightBrain’s more fertile,
eisegetically empathic,
nutritional feelings about ecopolitical health v pathology.

Czikszentmihalyi: Have you ever been involved in grass-roots action? If so,
what did it accomplish?

CEO: To date,
we continue unfolding embryonically cooperative,
organically-fractal (0)-sum ecopolitically fertile DNA
as what you might think of as ‘grass-roots.’
Then again,
you may be thinking of DNA’s
wider RNA extended families with grass-root systems.

What you see
is what you get
regarding what we have accomplished
for cooperative struggling with
v. too competitively struggling against
Earth’s Originally Intended grass-roots nutritional ecopolitical actions
and reactions,
and networks of multicultural health
in tension with monocultural pathologies.
ReGenerative Times doesn’t need more freedom to say whatever condemning slanderous story we might think of,
and we do need more freedom from
LeftBrain’s monoculturing supremacist
egocentric pathologies,
which are,
by definition,
not ecopolitically correct balanced nutrition
for either public or private health concerns,
including issues about not enough cooperative economic health.

Czikszentmihalyi: Are you comfortable with the idea
that the shape of the future
depends on how you invest your psychic energy now?

CEO: Well, the Taoist word for comfortable is contentment,
which the Buddhists, and maybe even Abraham et. al.,
seem to define as absence of suffering,
resonantly co-redemptive health rather than dissonant pathology.

Contentment is our psychically positive-balanced
ecopolitically cooperative powers-with and through co-empathic trust.
So trust in what is healthy, and good nutrition, and safe and secure,
and warmly ecotherapeutic
for future regenerators of Earth’s landscapes and climates
would seem to be our ReGenerative Times way to
truth with beauty invest.

Czikszentmihalyi: What consequences do you draw from this fact?

CEO: To optimize our regenerative health,
we look for absence of cognitive-affective dissonance
born in WinLose assumptions
that ecopolitics and ecologic are not always positively played WinWin,
through mutually held co-empathic trust
absorbing past mistrusting anti-polypathologies.

If I may summarize,
economic landscapes of cooperative nutrition
recreate climates of health-producing Earth Rights politics,
appositionally co-arising greater awareness
of Earth-Devolving Wrongs
as politically and economically incorrect,
sacrificing abundant health.
