Walking While Reading

I was walking while reading
because this had been recommended,…

Well,…
actually more like required reading
while walking,
rather than too much blindly reading
while passively impassively sitting through
Earth-reflective stalking exercises

For improving body health
and soul wealth,

Not that these are really two different things,
detached from some primal relationship,
but more like…
Hmmm…
Yang walk and Yin listen,
and leftbrain secular dominant
and rightbrain sacred prominent
harmonic universal-unitarian
egalitarian egos
and interdependent eco-webbed to play
win/win role-plays
games
jazz improvised walking dances
soulfully reading gospel flung
while sung meditation opportunities.

Meanwhile,
and coincidentally,
Barbie and Ken are driving south on Route 8,
talking about stuff
they usually get stuck with talking about
and over
and occasionally even all the way through
each other’s emotional intelligence.

Talking about things like stocks and bonds.

Who stole the food stocks
from the kitchen
and who is out on bond
just now.

When suddenly Barbie noticed me:

“Look Ken,
a guy who can both walk and read
and do them coincidentally!”

“Well, dear, I can walk and read at the same time,
too!”

“Yes dear,
but would you live to tell of it,
here on Route 8,
north or south?
Walk and read meditation
is not as GoldenRule easy
as walking through your own backyard
while chewing gum.
I wonder what he’s reading.”

“Why would that be a question
a normal person might think to randomly ask?
Do you wonder what every reading person you pass
may or may not
could or could not
should or should not
be reading?”

“No, Ken,
Just the ones who pass me by without wonder
or the slightest hint of mutual awe.”

“But…”

“Never mind.
Readers while walking are exceptions
to my active/passive curiosity rule.
Would you like to turn around
so I can ask him
what he’s reading?”

“You’re serious?”

“No, playful and curious.”

“Does reading while walking appeal to you
in some warm and fuzzy sensory way?”

“Maybe.
Depends on what you’re reading.”

“Should I be feeling threatened right now?”

“Only if win/lose feels like a healthy
and holonically integral
noetic intelligence choice, Ken.”

“What would choice have to do with feeling threatened
or holistically supported?
And did those words
just come out of my mouth
in that order?”

“No worries, dear.
You can’t help your yang leftbrain autonomous-deluded self,
but we can
together ask him:

“Excuse me!…
Excuuuuse Meeee…!!

“Me?”

“Do you see anyone else around?”

“Well, this river birch birthed right here,
and that crab grass.
You would be surprised how many people scream at crabgrass.”

“No, I wouldn’t honey;
But probably not anything about ‘excuse me, please.’
Listen,
Ken and I want to know what you’re reading.”

“So,
you just drove down Route 8 south,
saw me walking while reading, going north,
turned around near the cemetery
to drive back north
to ask me what I’m reading?
And people think I’m nuts….
Thich Nhat Hanh,
I’m reading his gospel for compassionate walking
and wellness reading while listening
to sensory-emotive intelligence,
through non-violent nutritiously regenerative communication;
Which makes him a little difficult to grasp
while motorists shout ‘Excuse Me!’
Which I had hoped was an apology for exhausting our air
until another Ken,
when I responded ‘Namaste, no worries’
Said he wasn’t talking to me
but to another Barbie
not regeneratively listening
in his patriarchal sports car.”

Barbie asked me
if I could give her a brief unchoreographed review
of secular walking while sacred listening
to internal left with right
co-arising dipolar
win/win healthier climate conversations.

“I don’t think so,
and my feet and legs and arms and voice
aren’t feelin’ it at all.”

So then she and Ken invited themselves
to leave their car,
or was it a tank?
to walk with me
while reading aloud.

We’re still timelessly traveling along
alone
while reading and listening
together;

Sometimes advocating against
corporate wealth
measured in stocks and bonds,
and recreatively researching self
with other cooperative wealth
measured in health
on our revolving while sacredly listening
EarthWomb

Restoring win/win justice
while Gaian Goddess feels
polyculturing integral ZeroZoned
open-systemic
musical fractal-octaved
spacetime 4D-scaled
and structured
and instructed bilateral co-passion,

Universally timeless yang walking
while unitingly eternal yin reading
democratic climates of health
and kleptocratic pathology.

Later,
we were walking while reading
because this had been recommended…

Cooperative Learning

I think
and feel
it would be a good
and healthy change
if schools,
at all levels,
and parents,
of all nations,
taught our young
more about win/win cooperative
thrival passions
than win/lose competitive
survival dispassions.

Even better,
and more urgently primal,
seminal,
revolutionary,

We might become a good
and healthy climate change
if students and teachers
and children and parents
and listeners and preachers,
followers and leaders
listened to our young and old
with more win/win compassionate hugs
than win/lose competing survival detachments,
neglects,
disconnected abuses
learned through lifetimes of wounds
and non-win/win potential integrity
fractures,

Deeply and widely learned
from struggling unfree parents
and robotic behavior-commodified,
multiply and then divide,
left-brain dominant teachers
and schools
and monocultures
and nationalistic nonself-governors.

Sometime During the Night

Sometime during the night
I knew what was more right
to sing our songs
with great yang might
and soft yintegrity’s not wrongs.

We could sustain our notes
within this singing circle,
whether loud or soft,
but not too soft
to slowly feel our pitch
veer yinly flat.

Whether bright or dull,
vibrato or flat-line pure linear
waves of yang/yin sounds
to hear
to uniformly match dipolar
co-arising
and multiculturally mixed.

Then, as we listen and sustain,
we are free to retain our interdependent voices
of dissonance and confluence,
of dissent and harmony,
of resistance and peace,
and also free to change
toward growing harmony
or growing disharmony.

And, as we listen for re-alignments
in our ego/eco-voicing stream of time,
we grow free to hear with right-hemispheric wholeness
of our collective chord changes,
fluctuations,
together soft,
now growing louder,
softer,
bolder,
more peaceful
until fading into silent joy,
listening to our echoing after-ring power
of collective yang/yin reweaving memory.

We are no different,
on our better win/win communicating days,
of listening to curiously understand
than actively speaking out and up
for ego/ecological resilience
timelessly echoing,
both vibrato and flat-line
peacefully ever mountain/valley after.

Earth Sanctuary

I live in a curious network of relationships,
most quietly quite lovely
and a few more intensely challenging
unrelation shipped-out

In here both/and building awareness
is our non-verbal norm
of gesture
intent
confluent action
with congruent thought
reactions,

While large-scale one-way either true or false
linear messages spread out like win-or-lose economies
and politically powerful influences
to commodify,
to perpetuate tomorrow’s consumer of either/or noise

Not as courageously authentic
and curiously integral,
holistic
as our original Earth Paradise
networking win/win potentiality
reweaving shared reality

So much positive opportunity
for improvement;
So little negative risk
of unmovement.

I hear far more win/lose
than I can possibly win/win co-respond.
This is both intensely challenging
and yet, curiously,
quietly quite lovely.

A Realer World

When I’m preparing my garden
for the drama of planting
a multicultural communion
lovely above
and interdependently rooted below,
inside human voices
sound pre-occupied with unremediated mediocrity,
unreality,
what does not richly nurture
what cannot deeply re-nature.

Non-violent communication,
like poetry,
and planting,
is about HOW co-relational win/win messages
therapeutically happen,
metaphorically co-arise consciousness.

Compassionate communication theory,
and love experience,
are about WHY co-relational win/win messages
are healthy-wealth optimizing,
and happen, and do not happen,
enough in each win/lose suffering
competitive
egocentric day
on anthrocentric mis-cultured,
capital-infested,
distractedly inhumane
unreal Earth.

Whether our analysis is driven by compassionate communication
gesture,
behavioral structure,
bilaterally supportive mindfulness,
or win/win bicameral game theory
or healthy/pathological custodial systems
regenerative opportunity/degenerative risk-avoidance analysis,
or co-relational left/right
ego/eco-recentering intervention technologies,

We all,
from west to east,
from north to south,
from left to right,
from day to night,
from green to ultra-violet,
from explicate to implicate,
from flower to root,
want to improve political and personal nutritional relationships,
opportunities for growing win/win robust consensus
consciousness,
and minimize toxic and high-risk absence of co-relational
therapeutic
supportive intent.

We all want to grow mindfulness
of intra- and inter-personal healthy communication
pasts,
futures,
nondually present here with now.

Politically incorrect zero-sum competitive communication,
win/lose egocentric miscommunication,
and anthrocentric excommunication
cause global ill-being

Just as politically correct win/win EarthCentric communication
effects and affects
healthy well-being.

Whether in my real world garden,
or on my unreal gridiron.

Positively Deviant

She seems afraid to say too much
and not listen enough.

Perhaps fear of becoming misunderstood
and, worse, too quickly dismissed,
her moment,
even in this small-staged sanctuary,
unnoticed
under-nourished
unfed
unwatered.

She wants to share with us
her deviant dissonant sufficiency
usually seen as negative degenerating autonomy
but, occasionally, in epiphanies of positive
ecologically healthy
revolutionary ZeroZen deviant resonant potential,

Receptive tingling silence
thumping and breathing
autonomously ringing singing
timelessly herstoric
within domesticating unreal world paradise,
unwombed worn integrity re-memories
echoing between nightseed dreams
and switching off her leftbrain daily alarm.

Until she smiles
I am impressed by her nothing is sadly wrong
yet everything goes unsanctuary too patriarchally long,

Business As RightWing World gone,
anxiety about personal and political
and social and psychological
and mental and physical health issues
for future climate chaos kids
reversing integrity’s robust synergetic win-win potential.

I notice then
soft teeth with nearly infinite hard work
pain
suffering loss,
alone?

Physically alone,
and not not spiritually autonomous
feminist suffering deviance
often in counterculturing ways
to help others,
more win-lose predominant,
suffer unspoken withdrawal less.

Once
I see her primal eyes smile
and suddenly my own competitive mistrust,
my own positive deviant naked fear,
goes away,
dismissed by curious eagerness.

Compassion therapeutically co-arises.

I ask if she too suffers
without sufficient release
from mutually withheld win-win loneliness,
mistrust of fully disclosed intimacy
vulnerability
co-empathic joy.

She continues
now turning toward wealthy belly laughs
co-operating integrity
mutually vibrating abdowomen,
soul sound of synergy’s vast wisdom
loudly rooting for win-win potential global health
through her sanctuary solidarity,
still curiously becoming.

She seems fearless to listen too much
and eager to not say enough.

Operating Instructions

The most important fact about Spaceship Earth,
An instruction manual didn’t come with it.
Buckminster Fuller

A more significant historical fact about giving and receiving healthy life on Earth,
no instruction manual is needed
beyond Business As Usual DNA health-development function

Just look historically around
and follow the most robust, resilient, multiculturing lights
that enchant,
nourish ecstasy,
feed longings for potential integrity
regeneratively emerging across all generations past,

Resonance,
redemptive futures for EarthTribe residents.

If you’re missing zeal
to convert sinners
toward healthier truth,
divine salvation,

If divine redemption
does not fill both you and your potential audiences with ecstatic peace,
love,
healthy understanding,

Then, regardless of how valuable
and valid
your theology,
creed,
scripture,
Clearly these have insufficient power
to instill salvific values–
your own healthy hope for internal and external climates
of peaceful loving integrity.

Instead,
with the greatest missionaries
and most powerful prophets
achieving multinational multiculturing synergetic outcomes,
attracting friends and followers

Listen first to those around you.
Where they hear and smell,
taste and see
their greatest everyday sacred enchantments,
their ecstatic critical secular events,
and pro-actively explore
how these are similar and different to your own experience, ecological,
to your own values and beliefs, theological,

To your own integrity of healthy networks
interdependent,
organic,
ontological
ethological
exegetical.

The most important fact about [organic] Spaceship Earth,
A [cooperative networking] instruction manual
didn’t come [without resilient, globally democratic] it
[Her].
