The 2020 Restorative Justice Proposal

It may have been the WiseElders Circle
that commissioned the GrantWriter’s first proposal.
Yet others claim it was the Young Adults,
And Pfizer prescribes New London’s original health proposal
came from their own blood stream advocates,
And the Coast Guard Academy remembers an early defensive proposal
to heal and protect local drinking waters
going more cooperatively coastal.
But, to each and all,
the GrantWriter responded,
as I recall renewing atmosphere:
Resiliently successful co-investment proposals
cannot be written in just one academic
unfelt Voice
of monotheistic
monocultural
monopolistic choice.
So each congregation,
organization,
affiliation
sent a delegation of four
to a multi-party convention.
Each participant was a member
of the Green
and/or Libertarian
and/or Democratic
and/or Republican MultiParty,
or agreed to roleplay warm familiarity
with one of these four primal platforms
investing primary priorities
in economically cooperative campaigns
and politically therapeutic co-investment intentions
not aggressively looking for full-out contention
to attract mediattention,
unmediated chronic tension.
Instead of debates
within and between these four Parties,
the GrantWriter invited small groups of four
to take turns listening
to repeated questioning,
“Who are we most longing to become?”
Dialogue ensued
not encouraged to research every naked win/lose competitive difference;
But, instead,
to capitalize win/win cooperative opportunities
to include highest priorities
as those voiced by all four health/wealth co-arising Party voices.
The GrantWriter notes:
Dear New London mayoral candidates
for all four Parties on our 2020 ReVision ballot,
The diverse congregations of New London
invite you to attend our Cooperative Dialogue Convention;
Not to speak,
but to listen,
as each small group reports out their longings,
findings,
truths with win/win consequences,
What each of us most longs to co-invest
to cooperate
to come and go viral
across all cultures
climates
and living systems,
Acts of cooperative compassion
for healing individual residents,
families and taxpaying households,
and untaxed community service properties,
communities of co-investment,
healthier resonant climates
and wealthier resilient multicultures.
Think of it as, for you, our guests, a silent auction
where everybody wins
because no one’s health is down and out
for highest bid.
Feel free to take pictures
and copious notes.

Greatest Story Never Told

This story remains unfinished
as do all the best tales told.
Yet I must warn you
it has a happy ending,
not dystopian,
although not a finished
political utopia,
Ever After LoveLife.

Where this story begins
remains a mystery,
like a definition for “Tao”
more obscure than refining Yang
with Yin sublime co-relationship,

Which is, and is not,
equivalent with white and black,
and all curious colors in-between
masculine and feminist,
left-brain dominant strength
and right-brain prominent flow;
liberties egalitarian and freedoms interdependent,
powers and passions,
climates and cultures,
natures and nurtures
secular and sacred,
ego- and eco-systemic
wealth as health,
love as life…

I believe
somehow
this unfinished end
revisits our Green Sanctuary origins,
Earth as Eden,
Humane life as divine love
where Gaia danced with interior/exterior humane voices
long before humanity was a tremor in Her womb
of left-brain dominant verbal becoming retold history.

Whether such a vast stage of DNA origin,
hoary with memoried and imagined Time,
affluently historical
and effluently cultural,
this is,
or hopes to one day become,
The Greatest Story Not Ever Told,
if only because we have been so Business As Usual
win-losing recycling spirals
conjoining Alphas and Omegas,
great transitional beginnings
with endings not yet visible,
or even vicariously heard,

Not ever completing
all Win/Win interdependent co-relationships
TaoTime invites
offers
with compassion,
gratitude,
curious courage,
transparent vulnerability.

But, you were asking about New London
in particular place and time,
a Connecticut town of about 30,000,
home of the Coast Guard
and Pfizer
and a Unitarian-Universalist Center
everybody knows as All Souls
and most every multicultural body repeats
their logo,
“Where all Souls are welcome.”

Strangely enough
I think the GrantWriter
was from out of town,
without any long-term relationships in New London
government
or business
or our eclectic religious sector.

The GrantWriter:

Such profound disconnection
feels uncomfortable
discomforting
not comfitting
inappropriate
for growing deep and wide compassion roots.

So, I did what I do,
I wrote an unfinishable proposal
about how to grow a resiliently healthy love life
in and with and for New London,
about why we each and all need a new win/win cooperative theory
and practice
for regenerative climate development;
so also against degenerative overheated
and frozen anti-health development.

Too much of my own learning experience
emphasized the sterile science
and dyspeptic un-communioned arts
of grief about lose/lose monoculturing climate terror trends,

So what would the opposite polycultural outcomes
of such environmental disaster feel like?
Look like?
Taste like?
Sound like?

How would we reattach to sacred gratitude
as a win/win species?
Now living in side-by-side autocratic/democratic silo communities
wrestling with win/lose economic capital-hoarding competition models
for natural and spiritual and financial survival.

Where are our active gratitude models
for win/win healthy wealth optimization?

One day
listening to Pamela Sparr,
not New London talent,
but encountered in an All Souls reading circle book,
Justice On Earth,
we cooperatively evolved five steps
Out of Our Silos and Selves:

1) Propose a bolder win/win,
left/right,
ego/eco-balancing
prophetic resilient image
of a mutually compassionate ecopolitics.

2) Develop communally incarnated courage
multicultural curiosity
capacity to listen
naturally left and spiritually right
ego-eco-theo-logically taoistic nutritional.

3) Look for win/win gratitude experiences
outside our side by side religious sanctuaries
and inside organic health farms
of resiliently ego-masculine
resonantly eco-feminist communication.

4) Engage with radical outdoor Earth voices
for interdependent co-passion
building up and out
and down and in
multicultural communion.

5) Increase win/win
polycultural gratitude
for health/wealth inspired
co-refining secular/sacred experience
of cognitive/emotive
culture/climate transformation.

 

Note:  First in a series of integral win/win cooperative health system proposals.

AllSouls CoOperative Residence

I wish to fully live
then richly die
non-violently communing with AllSouls
in cooperative team resonance,
resilient restoring justice green residence
eco-governing NewLondon’s energy democracy,
WinWin co-arising loss
of LoseLose Ego PrisoNest,
plutocratic capital-infested monotheism

I hope we wish to cooperatively network gratitude
for opportunities to restore peacefully robust forests
and resonant oceans
reweaving health optimizing Truth
and BeautyWealth enculturation,
multi-transparent
and accessibly co-passioned
as ultra-violet moon light,
RealTime or imagined.

I would avoid consequences for RightWing capitalist BusinessAsUsual
LeftBrain dominant weekday time
is a pre-millennial devolutionary dance
With elevated RightBrain intuitive prominence
of GoldenRule ecological arts
and theological sciences

And GoldenRatio psychological iconic crafts
Tipping wu-wei points toward ecopolitical health
rather than climatic consequences of sinful monoculturing hubris
of not-so-divine anti-sociological anthro-centrism
recreating this wearing out spacetime zero-zone universe
Capital over-invested in paranoid pathologies

My communion rituals imagine
sacred AllSouls CoOperative Residences
we already sanctuary share
in community rooms and land trust networks
for dancing and singing ecotherapies
story-telling and painting and writing,
planting and harvesting active communion
in outdoor sacred spaces,
AtlanticOcean boundary places,
Earth wild transition phases,

NewEngland revolutionary non-violent traces
rooted in nature/spirit eco-theology
co-arising healthy
cooperative
universal
ego-nurturing residents
reweaving All PolyCultural Souls

Communing climate bereavement choirs
composed of retired
and disabled adults
with children, as time and space allow

Schooling outdoor green homes
taught with challenged kids
and the young of too many species

Gathering all ages in our EcoSchool Cafe
for jazz and comedy improv
live and also podcast

For weekend disability day and night care giving
and receiving communion

Regardless of polypathic disability
cooperative location for residential sanctuary care
inside as outside,
universally before and integrally after
each sacred HereNow momentary communion
delivered and received.

View from a Sanctuary

He retired to his sanctuary
on the Eastern shore of the Thames River
three years ago,
an often frustrated permaculture organizer
for building cooperative social health
by creatively communicating climate wealth
growing ZeroZone positive multicultural tao-energy.

This proves reclusively frustrating
in large part because non-taoist neighbors and family
are unfamiliar with his iconic language
and green cooperative health faith
in democratic natural/spiritual
absence of violent communication
and perfect vacuum of conspiracy theory prejudice.

His RightBrain eco-centrism
LeftBrain deductive/inductive bicameral integrity search,
His bilateral historic future synergy,
trilateral energy dynamics,
quad-lateral nutrition cycles
playing virtuous WinWin health games
more than vicious WinLose capitalistic
dualistic WinLose ZeroSum theories
growing internal spirit against external nature,
personal against political,
ego against eco-therapeutic competitions
which could become cooperative constituents
with secular/sacred longings for love
as red sky morning warnings
greet coral sky dusk.

Love growing boisterously loud
contagious
courageous
curious grace
meeting hearts this day bilateral
greeting hearts this night bicameral
dreaming meeting hearts tomorrow multilateral
beating integrity hearts bicameral
this tomorrow’s integral night
absorbing ultra-violet sight.

His new home lies on the Thames River
flowing between Norwich,
former blue heron sanctuary
giving life and feeding Old Green EarthTribes
watering downriver to reforest New London’s community gardens,
cooperative artisans,
green motherland trusters,
Black ProLives Matter Allies,
United MultiCultural Green Ethicists,
coastal bands,
liturgical dancers,
fire-circle story-tellers and peace activists,
restorative EarthJustice advocates.

He has been humbled by crippling Norwich need
for more nutritious green blue heron spaces
and street entertainers
gardeners repurposing public spaces
dancing nutritional arts
and ecovillage well-schooled sciences

And has experienced rebirth
in New London green parties
hosting organic legions of multicultural youth leaders
struggling with recreating non-violent communications
supporting a cooperative casino potlatch economy
re-investing in Thames River CoOperative Enterprises.

This WiseElder hears his River flowing land-trust neighbor
refer to herself
in ultra-violet starlit language
transporting Old Green EarthTribe’s Main Street
for historically cooperative constitutions
incorporating permaculturing development
of polycultural songs
sung by polypathic tidal waters
competing up and cooperating down

Reflecting crystal star light
throughout effluent non-violent nights
remembering
reweaving
dancing sunlight therapeutic days
when love beats love,
beauty meets beauty,
trust invites trust,
faith predicts faith,
hope omits fear.

This Green EarthTribe River feels familiar
growing up in an extended farm family
still pushing and pulling out WiseElders
exploring cooperative ecopolitical climates
restoring peaceful organic forests
tree-lined nutritional MainStreet Rivers
surrounded by surprisingly self-managed meadows,
healthy ego ecosystems
inhabited by wealthy cooperative EarthTribe memories
transubstantiating constitutional healthy non-violent communions
indigenous with colonial
wildly democratic and yet conservatively explosive

Evolution glowing in a revolutionary erection.

FRESH Air

I was invited to the FRESH urban farm
for youth development
of plants and people
and a more nutritionally just planet,
for an interview.

As usual
I began with uncovering
where FRESH compassion
for Earth’s healing
stands and sits and kneels,
laughs and cries,
works and plays,
multiculturally races
and feels stuck right here
in stagnant depressing Now.

What nutritional care giving and receiving services
does FRESH have Here/Now passion for
and feel therapeutically missioned
to claim within NewLondon’s WinWin
ecopolitical goodfaith guilds
and subcommunities,
cooperatively interdependent stakeholders?

We use FoodJustice,
fuel fairness,
Positive Nutritional Energy
to reconnect our subcommunities,
to actively mentor global ecological stewardship,
theological ZeroZone Paradise Management,
Earth sanctity, without being sanctimonious,
to inspire nondual nature/spirit youth leaders
to invite
and incite green restoring change,
nutritionally within
as without.

What would you like to permaculturally design
nutritionally together as EarthTribe
that you cannot nurture autonomously,
monoculturally anthro-centric,
colonizing Win/Lose LeftBrain dominance
stuck in Lose/Lose pathology trends
of Left against Right dissonance.

We would like to reverse
Ecological/Theological racing toward mutually unredeemable
Loss of economic health
caused by shrinking ecological wealth,
under-invested in climate therapy,
nutritionally challenged
by way too much competitive investment
in Either/Or
LeftBrain
autonomous
egocentric
secular dominance
OVER
RightBrain
WiseElder
sacred
green nutritional prominence.

Of course you do.
Why else would you be called FRESH?
