Essential Reading

When asked
by my nephew
for an essential reading list
for PermaCultural Therapeutic Design,
my Taoist thoughts went back
to Unitarian-Universalist
Yin/Yang pre-history,
when Earth produced a theologian,
Dr. Thomas Starr King (1824-1864)
reaching out for non-violent dialogue
across all global healing cultures.

This 1800s Dr. King
would-be global peacemaker
and reflected
and reconsidered humanity
both Universalist YangLeft Dominant
and Unitarian YinRight Prominent,
like EgoCreators
noticing and appreciating EcoCreations
to an Integral PermaCulturing Designer
and Restorer of EarthJust Climates,
WellTimed Nutrition Spaces,
Secular/Sacred Health/Wealth BiLateral
DiaLogical Places.

To everyone’s ecologically cooperative relief,
this Dr. King had a sense of humor,
sometimes dark
and deep,
more resonant with MoonLight seasons
than SunBright reasons

Speaking of power and energy and light,
“The Universalists…believe that God is too good
[healthy, wealthy, beautiful, trusting, radically democratic Lover]
to damn us forever;
And you Unitarians believe you are too good
[wealthy beautiful resonantly trusting and healing Creation]
to be damned.

[to be pathologized,
victim of toxic apartheid,
degenerative monoculturing climates
global hurricanes,
starvation, etc.]

This Dr. King
ecological theologian
spoke with a polyculturally developed sense of irony,
and died one year before
the first National Conference of Unitarian Churches
discussed merging YangLeft Universalists
with YinRight Unitarians,

Like liberal Yankees
and confederated Rebels
inviting creolizing
polycultural carpet-baggers
of good faith ecological relationships
redesigning theology,
preaching non-violent good governance
to those who would post-UnCivil War listen
with positive attitude gratitude,
active polyculturing co-passion.

These EarthPassions percolated for another sixty-five years,
until Frederick May Eliot
mediated patriotic Unitarian Associates
of these Uniting States
for healthy democratic becoming
one cooperatively co-invested health sanctuary

Inviting a serious,
and sometimes more light-hearted
and footed
and bicameral-handed,
discernment connecting
uniting Universalist global wealth redeemers
and healers
with Unitarian interdependent web of secular/sacred human
health/wealth pro-lifers.

Eliot’s Commission on Appraisal,
covenant for global truth and reconciliation,
reported “Unitarians should
[could, might like to]
free themselves from the sectarian spirit
[of apartheid,
bad faith,
partisan, monoculturing nature]
by cooperating more fully
[actively win/win nonzero-sum, regeneratively]
with other denominations,
[good and healthy faith communities],
by taking part in a growing [polycultural] movement
of the Free Church Fellowship
[for non-violent communing sanctuary design
and cooperative development]

And by entering whole heartedly
into the worldwide [swelling/shrinking ecopolitical] fellowship
of religious liberals
[nature/spirit nonsectarian]
in many lands.”
[protected by health conservational EarthTrust.]

Since the 1930s,
Free HealthSanctuary Democratic Communication
has further responded
to Buckminster Fuller’s ecological/theological “Synergetics,”
to Marshall Rosenberg’s “NonViolent Communication,”
to Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects
through “Active Hope,”
to Iain McGilchrist’s “The Master[Mistress] and His[Her] Emissary,”
to Deb Dana and Stephen Porges’
“The Polyvagal[cultural] Theory in Therapy:
Engaging [Inviting] the Rhythm of [win/win cooperative] Regulation.”

To this Taoist GreenDemocrat,
all these additional inside-voiced layers
of systems group attachment
to non-violent human compassion theory
are helpful
yet distract from the outdoor sense of mystical humor
implied in LaoTse’s Sonnets for Self/Other
Ego/Eco GoldenRule,

Earth BiHemispheric Democratic
Health-Nutritional CoGovernance
outside as inside climate therapy,
above as below,
ecosystemic as ego-resilient
green wealth as red-blooded health.

Liberation Library

In my personal political library

Neighboring George Lakoff’s

And Frances Moore Lappe

How could I not have earlier noticed
this empowering alphabetical liberation
of climate co-governing resilience?

Sacred Economic Promise

waiting for climate restoring notice,
then commitment,
then multigenerational solidarity
of memory and re-imagination,

and slow-growing omega co-investment,

reciting co-empowerment,

inviting perennial ages,
retelling culturally emotived power stories

PolyPathic Political Populace

In another millennial time and Chinese/Russian place,
Taoism began as aphorisms and poetry
about political philosophy,
articulating a bicameral tension
between Conservative Yangers,
patriarchal universalist ego empire builders,
and Unitarian Progressive Yinners, WinWinners,
a matriarchal cooperative
integrative network of nurturers,
(the longer the list of adjectives and adverbs,
the less important history would prove us to become cooperatively disintegrated)
empty of any sectarian-deductive labeling,
and supremacist framing, function.

Hence, everyone knows the principles of InterdependentYang and EmptyYin,
and usually metaphorically associate them with Male and Female,
and Positive and Negative,
yet few have economically and/or politically defined
the governing power of Tao.
We have the Tao of most everything,
without necessarily being clear about what the label Tao
adds to most anything.

In another millennial time and New England and Baltimore place,
Reverend Channing proposed to replace the Holy Trinity
with God the LeftBrain Dominant patriarchal EgoFather[Mother],
with universalist regenerative credentials of deduced historic effectiveness,
and the RightBrain Unitarian matriarchal OverSoul
of Grace
and Flow
and Karma
and Princess (0)-Sum Prime Relational Energy
of ecoconscious integrative potential,
all four nondual sisters co-arising cooperatively together
in ecopolitical health
and bicameral safety Paradise
of DNA with RNA Solidarity in fractal-nutritional seasons
with reasons of regenerative health,
Original Tao Intent.

Or, something LeftBrain Universal God
and RightBrain OverSoul EcoConscious Unitarian
like Yang Ego discontinuous competitions
with Yintegral EcoIntegrity CoOperative Networking
and WinLose evolutionary model of mutual degeneration
with WinWin ecological model of regenerativity.

It is this Unitarian 0-sum RightBrainBody OverSoul
that Reverend Julian Jaynes explores
as how we are prodigal son and daughter and transgender Egos,
and OverSoul Atman PolyPaths of EcoConsciousness,
Prodigal Unitarians
progressing Ego health and safety Conservationism,
played WinWin with LeftBrain ego-centric
ecological discernment of optimally cooperative evolution
rather than BusinessAsUsual LeftBrain idolatry
of competitive capitalistic revolutions,
and concomitant WinLose violence
in the name of peacemaking,
and pathological lack of long-term consciousness
in the name of climates and landscapes of and for healthy freedom,
optimally self-liberating safety,
polypathic integrity.

“…[T]here is something else to be observed
as you study your own [prodigal bicameral] nature.
It is a something of supreme importance….
Suppose you observe [several of ego-you] in your daily consciousness,
now one,
now the other
asserting itself in thought and behavior;
who is it,
let us ask,
who is it
or what is it
that does the observing?”

Polypathic ecoconsciousness
of time’s flow,
regenerative and too often chaotically Left-Right dissonant.

“Are you not conscious of still another [Elder RightBrain] self,
larger and more inclusive than the others,
that seems to be standing outside watching them,
counting them,
criticizing them,
applauding them?”

holonic matriarchally cooperative face
of Father Patriarch LeftBrain.
Brahma is Tao of Gaia.

“Who is it that wonders?”

Which God and/or Goddess do you most idolize
as RightBrain BiCameral OverSoul?

“There are times when you fall so completely into the possession of one of these smaller selves [Ego-ideals],
that you lose all consciousness of the one [Earth-Matriarchal ReGenerator] watching outside.
It is only afterward that the presence of the [Gaia-Climate OverSoul] watcher
is seen and felt.
There are other times
when the [ecoconscious] watcher
seems to be on the guard [silent defensive-dissonant-repressed] all the time,
and while the lesser personalities [LeftBrain Dominant ego-idols] are having their way,
is continually sounding the word of [condemning patriarchal] rebuke
or [matriarchal health and safety nurturing] encouragement….
You may call it [prodigal] conscience,
or moral [polypathic] sentiment–
anything you please.
I like to give it the name I have already used
and call it the real
or the larger [OverSoul, RightBrain EmBodied NonDual CoArising] self.”

A rational matriarchal Gaia theistic belief
in an Original ReGenerative Source
could be both theologically universalist
with regard to root source of divine intelligent ecopolitical empowerment,
and teleologically secular-unitarian
with regard to evolutionary Omega Point
of humane polypathic healthy,
and rationally co-mentoring abundance.

Both history and science,
our own eyes and ears,
remind us phylogeny is polypathic
across both DNA and RNA branches
of our regenerative tree of life.

So it is our Earth’s systemic ecology is polyculturally progressing
across all economic/political nutritionally positive/positronic relationships.

In this post-millennial time in Gaia’s growing climate pathology,
Tao means Conserve/Progress ecopolitical healthy climates
of positive cooperative regenerativity,
resonantly inside as reiteratively outside,
below as above
before Space as after Time
positive as double-binding negative
Yang as YinYin
WinWin (0)-sum PolyPathic Prodigality.


Rev. Julian Jaynes quotes are from his “Coming to One’s Self” homily, published in Magic Wells: Sermons…, 1922. ¬†As noted in prior pieces, I read Reverend Jaynes’s theology through his psychologist son, Julian Jaynes, who wrote a seminal evolutionary theory of bicameral consciousness development, very much in synchronicity with Gregory Bateson’s concept of Sacred Ecology.


Just Say Yes

Just say yes
to not yet gone
not yet going against your way
not yet becoming distrusted distasteful dissonance.

Those of us more blessed in the Positive Psychology department,
and yet perhaps all of us somewhat more opaquely,
enjoy qualities of life that we all do want,
and an equal number of negative appositional qualities
that we would do better without.
These are, by definition,
and by comparison with their more positive counterparts,
as confluence is to discover dissonance,
as integrity grows to uncover late-great decompositional transitions,
as healthy climates recover from comparatively compromised unhealthy subclimates.

We all want more beauty
so less ugly.
We want more good
and less bad.
More truth
so less equivocating untruths.
We all want more healthy places and spaces and times
and paradigms
so less pathology of mind and heart and soul and body,
distresses of internal climates.

We all want cooperative economic and political relationships
and less rabid competing and terror
distrust and hatred.
We all want more power-with
so less power-over;
or do we?

We all want neither too much
nor too little.
We all want our self-optimizing time delivered neither too late
nor too soon.
These function as a prime-relational fractal of temporal double-bind,
wu-wei Tao Tipping Point
of (0)Zen mutually shared SpaceTime wants,
with their counterpart not-wants,
natures both kind and unkind humored.

We all want more peaceful order
so less stressful chaos now,
and to stay with us forever,
neither too soon nor too late,
but just rightly positive balanced
on tipping point of eternal now.

We all want
not too soon with not too late
quality of time,
as not too much and not too little Basic Nutritional Space
within Earth’s timeless co-present sacred place.

Polynomial values = notnot polypathic disvalues
as YangSpace = notnot YinTime wu-wei balance.


Christ and Laotse

A Tao (0)Mega Tipping Point Zen-Christ
could become no better or worse than your own spiritual experiences
of your own bicameral mindbody of Christianity.
These Christ-icons are all made of the same LeftBrain yeast
becoming fully diastatic bread
becoming RightBrain’s fully diastatically Beloved Community Body.

Jesus of Nazareth
was neither the first nor last
to recognize both Self and Other
as bread of life
sun of life
light of life
son/daughter of life
words of life
yeast of life
body of life
body and blood of life.

On the other hand
Laotse may have been the first and last
to see Self within syncretically enculturing ElderOther
dipolar yeast health-diastolic,
avoiding more static flat-line pathologies.

Tao of Yang body-life
reverse-facing double notnot humored YinYin
wu wei’s flow of diastatic ego-death,
reproduces a great deal of in-between cognitive-affective dissonance,
so the devil appears within details
inscrutable Eastern nondual co-arising ecometric politics of namaste,
LeftBrain Western enculturation dominance
tolerates, with chronic stress irritations,
all our yeasty Taos
of full 7-Grain Sabbath Breads of Life
longing to conjoin
in and through Beloved Spirit-Natured Communities.

I suppose a Jewish therapist
deeply immersed within the Torah,
reading words of Jesus
in the first three gospels
might easily imagine these the teachings
of an often depressed schizophrenic
with compulsive self-obsession
as a sacrificial lamb
living in an unredeemed economy,
but this sidesteps sacred truths,
yeast does transubstantiate diastolically through organic bodies,
a positively deviant virus becoming fertile nutritional commodities
for anthrocentrically benign-as-healthy
wealthy evolving purposes,
etching yet evolving through yeasty regenerations
of self-redeeming health with beauty generations.

If the original primal Christian intent
was also the Tao of Self+Other ecoconscious
egocentric sacrifice to (0)Zen Center,
then Jesus of Nazareth was also transubstantiating
Eastern nondual co-arising ecology of nature-spirit mindbodies
into Jewish sacred organic ecopolitically correct sheepish language.

But, this inquisition about
humane icons with divinely evolving spirit-souls,
each holonically RNA/DNA integrative-proportional-relational
instructions for a folding
prefolding fractal Universe of organic health becoming
continues within each living cell’s core rooting system,
each yeasty plasmatic culture,
each health v pathology subclimate
with four equivalent seasons,
trinitarian LeftBrain traces
across bilaterally eternal co-present notpast/notfuture
RightBrain time.

Elder RightBrains never die,
they simply enter and exit deep erotic/agapic sleeps,
co-arising positives as notnot quite so much is more.


Sacred Ecology Channel

“…a network.., in the local [RightBrain] language,
is called ‘mandala’.
I’m more [LeftBrain] comfortable
with the word ‘ecology,’
but they’re very closely overlapping ideas.
At the root,
is the notion that ideas [like energy and climates] are interdependent,
interacting, that ideas [unlike regenerative climates,
organic nutritional processes
like evolutions of
Earth and Ego and Anthro Creation Stories] live and die.
The ideas [with co-arising negative feelings of distrust
as cognitive-affective dissonance]
that die do so
because they don’t fit with the others.
[Until they do; then they’re called revolutionary.]
So I thought I would try to unravel for you
some of the ecology [climatology, cosmology],
something of the position and nature of the [RightBrain] ‘sacred’
in the [LeftBrain] ecological system.”
Gregory Bateson, p. 265, Sacred Unity: Further steps to an ecology of mind.

Ideas with feelings attached,
like ecological subclimates,
internal landscapes,
health/pathology-delivering nutritional systems
of ecopolitically effective/dissonant communication,
and these Self+ElderOther enculturing strings of self-optimizing RNA/DNA
can pathologically die
because they do not fit confluently
with and for and of Earth
and Her great transitioning Universe.

While many teachers and prophets,
writers and philosophers,
scientists and community public/private ecopolitical health developers,
have shown an articulate interest
in the sacred mandala
ecological climate of nature-spirit bicameral mind,
(Jaynes, Bateson, Jung, R.D. Laing, Laotse, Bucky Fuller as Convex/Concave)
most have examined economic cooperative minds without political bodies
as stand alone elephants in a laboratory room,
rather than a healthy eating and pooping economy
herding with other likely mindbodies
on and in Earth’s multiculturally complex dialectal subclimates
ranging from regeneratively nutritional
through starving stagnant purgative drought.

Political ecology of sacred organic healthy choices
and other, more high risk eisegetically competitive ideas
with their ambivalent wu wei Tippy off-centered feelings,
these, like egos,
unlike ecoRightProportion-Only TemporalMinds,
reweave life and death cycles all our own
within Earth’s multicultural healthing ecopolitical network,
sacred integrative ecology.

Earth’s creation evolves regeneratively
because both here and there
both is and notnot is
a divine creator shadow within each and every ego
cooperatively supported
by each living cell’s prime-thermodynamic
seeking ionic/ergodic co-gravitating balance within
