Teaching Power

Teaching can feel depressingly predative
to younger minds
preferring to not evaporate while preyed upon.

Mentoring can feel more hopefully symbiotic
with younger,
less domesticated minds
preferring to mutually stalk
shared prey of symbiotic and creolizing truths
between generations,
ancient to yet unborn.

Parenting can feel parasitic
to younger minds and bodies
ready to break free
of aging hosts,
relentlessly hoping
to pass along some semblance of grace
as gratitude
for Earth’s co-investing gifts.

Parenting could,
in hypothetical theory,
invite mutuality,
more like benign parasites,
who know and love each other,
moving from harboring co-dependencies
to seeking mutual interdependence
for further good-humored
yet vulnerable
exploitations of honest life as mutual gifting forward.

even vibrant health
can feel like unmitigated competitions
where if I win
then someone else must lose,
when all the most important choices
are between Either Yes
Or No.

I suppose power could feel more limited.
Power to mutually avoid
and live in side by side autonomous silos
of live and let love,
where if I win
then so must you
and if you win
then so must I
and if this generation wins
then so must future generations
where all our mutually avoided choices
issue forth within Both Yes for me
And NotNot No for you.

Teaching power can feel predative,
as mentoring interdependent powers
invites deep harmonic ecology,
sacred symbiosis
of me
as also notnot you.


The Best Way To Go

When I was a new seminarian
I had a favorite parish priest mentor
who told me the best way to die
is while having an orgasm.

I wasn’t sure if I could ask
why he was so exclamatory sure
of his nakedly compromising position.
I did not really know him all that well,
although he seemed to be a swell up kind of Father.

Perhaps I looked a bit nervous
because he hastened to reassure me
the reason he is enamored of orgasms,
of diastatic experience,
is because they transcend our language boundaries
between Eros and Agape.

Orgasms are ecstatic climatic events,
warm full-bodied memories
of mindbody interdependence,
of holistic cooperative ecopolitics within
every organ and cell,
muscle and happy little ego-subsystem
groaning out this profoundly universal Yes!
with both LeftBrain audio-visual Eros
and RightBrain universally interdependent
neural-sensory climate of Agape.

I didn’t know what to say to this bicameral-sexual therapy.
But, if this is an option for how to die,
it does sound like the only good one I have ever heard.

So I said that.
And then my mentor suggested I go home
and practice
living that same way.

Note:┬áTo Fr. Gary Kennedy, who is not on the Catholic Church’s Great Wall of Shame, yet also not on the Church’s Great Wall of Patriarchal Wisdom, where he might more ecstatically reside. With warm gratitude.


Constitutional Rights and Wrongs

An attorney friend of mine once said,
We have two opposing views
of the hows and whys of law and time and natural evolution,
including natural law,
and including U.S. Constitutional Law.

One assumes both natural and spiritual nondual legal obligations
to invite and respond to the friends of our allies
as our potentially cooperative friends,
unless proven to be too contrary,
competitive WinLose.

This is the type of lawyer,
and parent,
and friend,
and fellow-resident of Earth,
democratically multicultural-is-positive voter,
I intend to become
with every breath both Yang-out deductive of Yin-inductive-concave,
with every heartbeat both Yang-flow out toward diastatic climax
and Yin reverse toward aptic-static
to begin again,
with every day and nightmare,
with ever week and month and year
of this,
our Positive PolyPathic Ground
and Air and Fire and Water of Becoming
CoRevolutionaries of Moral Secular/Sacred
ReGenerative EgoHealth/EcoWealth
Yang/Yin EcoPolitical Integrity

Then there are my more amusing, and sometimes terrifyingly unwell, BusinessAsUsual WinLose LeftBrain Dominant types
of lawyers
and parents
and voters,

The enemy of my friends
is probably also my competing ecopolitical enemy,
therefore I shall play
Mutually Assured LoseLose Condemning Belittling Bullying Destruction,
perhaps by aiming first at Islamic NationStates
owning oil and civil and climate unrest.

We shall assume WinLose normative legal ethics
and yet also RightBrain remembers this assumption’s ecological conclusion
is most nihilistically, merely secularly,
reductively, merely naturally,
to Lose sacred dignity of both life and death,
to become a merely entropic dissonant future
absence of health and safety regeneration.

Despite this understory of irritating belief-faith dissonance,
I choose LoseLose Mutual Destruction
perhaps because no one sufficiently mentored
what it could promise to continue cooperatively within our larger

My Legal Counselor said,
Mother Earth is my healthiest and most nutritiously balanced

and Executive Orders,
about friends of friends as friends WinWin assumptions,
he himself both naturally and spiritually

I so wish he had run for CoOperative President

committed to enforcing a Constitutional Law
most nutritiously and organically rooted in WinWin-only choice-making,
assuming friends of friends are friends,
rather than more of the same old
I’m Not Listening!
because I can’t stop talking about my FearMongering ParanoidEgo SelfIdentity,
so I’m issuing this memo from
ME: CEO of These United WinLose Corporations
TO: All bicamerally functional WinWin Civil Servants,
constitutionally self-identifying your LeftEgo/RightEco consciousness
for optimizing health and safety cooperative investment futures:

Always assume the enemies of all our allies,
(and I might be SuperPatriotically sure that our
‘Allies’ probably are quickly becoming a set of None, Zero,…
I’m feeling really conflicted about WinLose economics v politics
within our NATO strategy–
more logical to go WinLose separatist-fascist)…
As I was LeftBrain saying,
Always assume WinLose strategic competition is best for health and safety outcomes,
rather than continuing with the Constitutional
Evolutionary Historical Evidence
supporting a more organic Network of InterDependent CoOperation
toward One HealthySacred Body of ReGenerativity,
and away from DeGenerate Supremacies of State
WinLose Disempowerment of Liberty for All.

I suspect those more WinLeft BothAnding WinRight optimized
toward Ego/Eco Balancing patriotic civil service,
not uncivil disservice,
will have constitutional issues
with how such WinLose Assumptions of Mutual Destruction
resonates with US Constitutions
of Original WinWin EcoPolitical CoOperative Intent,
that friends of friends are also WinWin assuming and inviting friends
in NonDualist Enlightenment,
both West and East Philosophical
about ThermoDynamics of EcoPolitical YangConserving/YinProgressing
Nurturing-Integrity of Health and Safety Global thru Universal Intent.

May BioSystemic-ReGenerative EarthHearts forgive my friend,
the WinWin EcoTherapeutic Attorney
and Parent
and Voter as Breather and BiCameral Heart-Beater,
for not having spoken
as resonantly as he positive-health polypathically practiced
reproduced these thoughts with feelings of co-empathic well-being.

Are we here to help each other toward more cooperatively healthy-regenerative lives?
Or do we still WinLose compete to persuade each other of why we cannot all WinWin together,
which is why we originally came to each other
to figure out how to do.

Will you only tell me why I EitherOr can’t;
or also add why we BothAnd could regenerate Earth’s Constitutional Beloved Community future?


Conserving Enlightening Systems

“Overcoming misleading [economic and political] metaphors
that are physically [naturally, ecosystemically, phylogenically] in [and of]
your [ecological-organic embodied] brain
is never easy.”
George Lakoff, The Political Mind, p. 47

Unless, as Bucky Fulller so synergetically and consiliently,
Yang-confidently and Yin-confluently, suggests,
unless you provide a new and healthier cooperative analogical system.

LeftBrains with RightHearts

LeftBrain ego challenges
are also investments
in cooperatively struggling with RightBrain understream flow,
understories of recreative grace,
positively trending karma,
or against, trying to swim directly upstream,
competing with RightBrain’s laterally co-arising flow skills of integration.

Our moment by ego/ecoconscious moment choices
are in where and how and why
to LeftBrain invest in positive challenge
and/or divest of cognitive negative problems.

While this either-or competition
is actually also both-and cooperation
when we are at our Left-Right best,
most maturely skilled in deep ecological learning,
we lean more heavily into both-and challenges
with RightBrain integrative polypathic multicultural comprehension,
co-empathic co-arising Left/Right mutual-subsidiarity trust,
and more lightly on either-or mistrust problems
with LeftBrain ego and anthrocentrist ignorance
of RightBrain’s timeless understory
of nutritional co-gravitating integrity.

Minds, brains, hearts, lungs, hands, feet
are embodied,
part of an organically healthy,
and sometimes more unhelpfully pathological,
ecopolitical biosystem.

So LeftBrain deductive reasoning,
logical rationality,
is also RightBrain embodied ecological,
phylogenically emerging within holistic matriotic nurturing,
growing out from Ego/Self:Eco/Other co-embodied composting wombs
co-arising nondual polypathic power-with empathy.

Following Julian Jaynes’ ethological theory of bicameral emergence,
and phylogenic historic-memetic evolutionary evidence,
LeftBrain’s polynomially languaged rationality
is primally embedded in RightBrain unlanguaged unconscious
notnot Tipping Point ecological-moral integrity development,
discernment toward multicultural integrity as climate health norms,
ego-values rooted in ecological thermodynamics of living systems.

LeftBrain egocentrism
merges with RightBrain eco-consciousness
as we mature
by extending our empathic skills
discerning ecological health
cooperatively, co-redemptively, co-mentoringly, democratically
by divesting of unhelpful self-and-other condeming pathologies,
an unwillingness to mentor co-empathic “both-and” acclimation;
especially when we feel surrounded by a mistrusting “either-or” competitive, and not quite so healthily democratic,
sometimes paranoid and terrifying,
ego-supremacist environment.

After all,
what else could divine with human natural transubstantiation be,
other than this ecological polypathic stretch
of our multicultural WinWin Golden Rule?

Left to Right and back again,
reiterative enthymematic revolutions
of Left-Explicate and Right-NotNotImplicating-integrating
co-arising polypathic communications of climate health
and notnot dissonant demonic noise?
