Healing Earth

Resilient phylogeny is to resonant homology,

As neurological balance
is to psycho-sociological harmony,
as cooperative economics
is to democratically compassionate politics.

Polyvagal neurological win/lose connections
and win/win polypathic/polyphonic reconnections
and lose/lose disconnections
predicate socio-psychological healthy v pathological choices
for ego-centering rooted in eco-systemic resonant wealth
for multiculturing health optimization.

Win/Win cooperative economic models
predict healthy democratic
bicameral political empowerment

While Win/Lose competitive capitalism
predicts unhealthy anti-social climate pathology
contrary to Earth-centered
democratic Win/Win
regenerative energy governance.

Neurological Left/Right hemisphere bicameral balance
predicates
associates regenerative health trends
for both ego homology and ecosystemic phylogeny.

Continuing Either/Or dissociative
competitive assumptions
of zero-sum Win/Lose LeftHemisphere
WestHemisphere monocultural dominance
predicts further virally degenerative climate developments,
internal socio-psychological
and external eco-political

As resilient eco-political networks
are to resonant ego-womanist
natural health/spiritual wealth-wombed
strong/flowing
Yang/Yin
Left/Right
epi/geo/ego/eco-healing sacred Earth.

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,
branches
and root well-springs.

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

But,
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
seen,
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,
welcomes,
invites,
embraces,
baptizes with awe and wonder,
spiritual intelligence of universal individuation,
river-bedded identity
co-arising heart-felt rhythms,
breath
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.

UnClassified Intelligence

Health has become climatically important
to understand
as well as experience
a fundamental difference,
and yet psychological
and neurological association,
between colonization
and creolization

For a healthy democracy
within this our extended family,
our benevolent associations,
our wealth-restorative reassociations,
our non-profit corporations,
our national
and state
and local
and global good public health governments
with strong and flowing unclassified intelligence,
contextual,
felt as co-arising co-empathic
and our own self-identity’s Left and Right resonant hemispheres.

Starting with win/lose colonization,
because secular NonSabbath history
is so replete with violence
in this modern capital-industrial competitive era

Of patriarchal and militarized violence
overpowering non-elite
nonCaucasian populations,
natural and spiritual resources,
healthy positive energy commodities,

Colonization employs win/lose self-assertive
insertion
excavating dissociations
demanding compliance
from eco-political non-elite Properties,
commodities human and otherwise.

A narcissist colonizer
may believe he (usually) is a benign colonist
engaging in short-term win/lose violence
to achieve long-term win/win benevolence
resonance
faithful win/win resilience.

A nihilist lose/lose
“I give up” colonizer
might believe Earth’s nature is inherently sinful,
to be overpowered by divine grace,
then burned and raped,
extracted and enslaved
for a vengeful
self-righteous
manic-depressive SacredRight v SecularLeft
mutual interior colonizing war
against egocentric fear and anger
and anthropocentric hate
blindly against Earth’s win/win regenerative,
ecopolitically creolizing,
ecological
co-relational
restorative justice,
co-healing hope
co-empathic peaceful HealthNature.

Which brings us to creolization,
a linguistic ecopolitical term
for non-elite pidgin communications,
normally within a recently overpowered
colonizing context,
in process of becoming a newly co-inspired
win/win multiculturing language,
a prominently celebrating narrative
of our Left/Right
Win/Win healthy/wealth,
our ecopolitically resonant democratic co-governance,
our cooperative ownership and green enlightened management,
as one global
creolizing
transubstantiating
Sabbath communal EarthTribe.

Left v Right win/lose colonization
is a Yang dominant
oppositionally competitive bipolar autocratic face
of Left/Right Win/Win creolization,
Yang/Yin cooperative
democratic co-arising Elite/NonElite
dipolar multiculturing
restorative justice
multiculturally designing
a new healthy climate,
a bilaterally resonant Janus-face
for achieving global climate
polycultural
polypathic
polynomial metaphoric
long-term resilient
health/wealth optimization outcomes.

NonViolent Communication
and Natural/Spiritual Philosophy
lies in recreative
regenerative win/win tension
with win/lose degenerative
pathologically capitalistic
ego-patriarchal colonization.

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
noticed
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
hellfire,
global hurricanes,
tsunamis,
drought,
pestilence,
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
multiculturing
polycultural carpet-baggers
of good faith ecological relationships
redesigning theology,
preaching non-violent good governance
to those who would post-UnCivil War listen
appreciate
with positive attitude gratitude,
active polyculturing co-passion.

These EarthPassions percolated for another sixty-five years,
until Frederick May Eliot
presided
convened
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,
discussion
dialogue
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
significant
important
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.

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
healthy
wealthy
robust
resonant
resilient outcomes.

What co-passionately discerning choices
can we make today
tonight
tomorrow
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
anger
suffering
loss
dissociation,
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
win/win
health/wealth,
bicameral
bilateral
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
facilitation
mediation
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
brown-skinned
ecofeminist,

And how much more resilient
urgently cooperative
corporate win/win covenant repercussions might have been
if we stopped compartmentalizing,
and started intersectionalizing,
creolizing
transubstantiating
synergizing
integrating
regenerating
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,
MonoCapitalTheology
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
corporate
incorporated
health-capitalized
rich polycultural paths
truth
ways
means
life
passions

Angry and terrified,
courageous and curious.

Holy Wind

These are post-revolutionary gay ’20s,
without pre-revolutionary SpeakEasies,
replaced with ListenHard
to global climates of LeftBrain dominant despair.

Margaret Meade encourages
invites
urges small winds
assembled in privatized circles,
yet still dreaming of love’s great evolving liberty,
winning healthy democracy
to win wealthy economies
to win resilient ecology
to win resonant polypathic theology,

To remember
small compassioned groups
are the only Holy Winds
to ever have started cultural revolutions
more matriarchal,
less patriarchal,
more yin,
less yang,
more LeftWind sacred,
less RightStorm secularized
militarism
corporate uber-rights of egocentric personism,
colonialism,
monoculturalism,
totalitarianism,
racism,
straightism,
anthro-supremacism,
UnHoly EarthRage nihilism.

And so our children led us out
from our WarmBreeze Sanctuary,
All Souls monotheistic
toward Republican Party Leadership Committees,

All Souls polytheistic toward Green Party Conclaves
for win/win economic/ecological sacred new deals,

All Souls atheistic
synergizing local Democratic Party Counsels,
conventions for green democratic inventions
in and for and of healthiest,
most resonant and resilient,
dipolar co-arising wealth,

All Souls agnostic creolizing Libertarian Party compassion
for those within segregated ideological atmospheres,
too removed from personal-political-economic-ecological experience,
longing to be free as Holy
WindStorms
restoring peace as EarthWind Justice
renaturing trusted warm atmospheric experience
heart-felt
as well as mind-thought.

Within these several atmospheric dialogues
each Party noticed our mutual self-knowing interests
in cooperative green health care,
given as received co-passions
exhaled as inhaled,

But now more Sacred Wind of revolution
restoration
regeneration
reweaving
restructuring
more coperative democratic wealth
of Holy Wind health,

Robust
as resonant
as resilient
brilliant polypathic
polyphonic
bicameral bi-polynomial
bi-lateral thinking/feeling Revolution WindStorms

In compassionate democratic delight
yet conserving liberal futures
in more warmly nurtured children,
still wet-wombed Holistic Occupiers
Earth-worshiping WindStorm
resolutions,

Supported win/win consensus
by all leadership Parties,
and it began right here
in this All Souls Holy Climate

Listening out and down into these revolutionary gay ’20s,
without Green SpeakEasies as yet
but still non-violently co-invested in ListenHard Parties
to global climates of RightBrain ecofeminist
indigenous Holy Wind,
still singing through one small ultra-violet voice.

 

Note: Holy Wind is a left-brain dominant anglicization of the Navaho vocalization for “atmosphere” and “dynamic climate change.”
