Man/Sha Legends

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.

Bigger v Deeper Egos

The belief that we become healthier,
healed,
redeemed
through commitment to some power
bigger and higher than just ourselves
follows left-brain dominant teaching,
and appeals to patriarchal thirsts
for robust ego empowerment.

Right-brain prominent feelings
do not disagree with,
dissonantly conflict with,
this bigness metaphor
but monotheistic universalism is not right-brain resonant,
while depth is everything
everywhere
every interconnected potential Time
of radically profound interdependent Identity.

Ego identity
feels emerging from
and returning to
deep ecosystemic nutritional streams
of curiously submerged becoming
co-passionate together
as facets of one boundless
unfathomed ZeroZone
double-bound
bilateral win/win becoming whole
holy
holonic
synergetic
integral.

Big and from-on-high colonization
is never historically resilient,
is always unsustainable,
except when intended
and multiculturally experienced as creolization,
benign largess, invitation
from deep compassionate pockets
of resonantly sacred generosity.

Left-brain either-or thinking
about how to be part of bigger
universally monotheistic Power
can become confluent with right-brain both-and feeling
becoming more deeply etched
ego-identified faith in action
within eco-individuating awareness
of nature’s interaction,
deeply spiritual compassion.

Where left-brain egos long to be part of a higher power,
right-brain win/win prime
ego/eco-relationality
belongs immersed in reconnecting deeper co-passioning rivers
of healthy energy streams
flowing up from enlightening dual-dark Source,
sacred resources,
silent webs of becoming
deep wells of resilient resonant belonging.

PlayDate Victories

Parental labor days and nights,
memories and contemporary echoing traumas
of declaring Hippocratic Commitment victories,
“No one got much hurt today,”

“Non-violent communication” prevails,
verbally and non-verbally laborious,
locally and globally viral,
monoculturally and multiculturally,
on our best days,

But “not violent” is such a negative
empty
cold
humorless LeftBrain way
to say,
to communicate,
resiliently resonant communion’s
articulating
heart-felt possibilities.

We have hope and faith potentialities
for cooperative spirits of life and love,
As well as secular natures of competitively incorporated death
and corporate loss,

But only one ZeroZone uniting Holy Nature/Spirit,
not only co-invested in non-violent life and love,
but further committed to solidarity
of resilient uniting life as resonant universal love,

Where Fear-of and Anger-about
past lose/lose competitive trauma
cannot repeat their either/or
exclusive
devolutionary Names.

DoublEdged Prophets

In prophecy
we often fixate
on time’s unprofitable passage,
on degenerative change
on long-neglected reform
on our need to redeem our time
now past.

Yet this notice of opportunities and risks
for future climates of pathology and health
is surrounded by an implicit right-hemisphere awareness,
a felt prophecy
pre-verbal
erupting from compassionate tenacity
of resilient health-wealth Time re-membered,

Matriarchal womb nurtured,
this prophetic nutrition of communal circles
and resonant spirals,
waxing and waning waves
of emotively implied pre-formation,
primal ZeroZone re-attachment
back through
and to
All Souls Yang-unfolding and Yin-refolding
universal and unitarian
strong-flowing
prophetic TaoTime;

Time tenaciously prophetic,
compassionately redeveloping integrity of health re-connected with wealth
left rationality with right synergy
polypathic thought with polyphonic feeling;

Courageous Either/Or with curious Both/And
ego/eco-logic;
Vulnerable with Transparent
prophetic polyculturing communication.

EarthTribe GameSystems

An important difference
between climate health (win/lose toward win/win thrivalist)
and climate pathology (win/lose toward lose/lose non-survivalist)
is a discerning capacity
to invite slow-reweaving
deep sacred learning relationships
Rather than further incite fast-unraveling shallow unrelationship
between ego-nature secularity
and Earth-nature immanently-sacred identity
and Earth-spirit transcendently ZeroSoul non-individuation
integral co-consciousness.

It may help
to image leftbrain dominant
as defaulting toward either/or logistics of separation,
building ego-voiced distinctions,
And
rightbrain ecofeminist interdependent both/and bilateral networks
of win/win co-responsiveness,
nurturing EcoVoice integrity,
EarthMother synergy,
Gaian ergodic energy,

A sacred feminine vibration inside
and outside
co-attaching boundary climate
of nurturing uncutting-slow-edged invitation
into co-responsive permeable climates
of delight in Truths
where MultiCultural Beauties
are robustly felt health systems.

Gaian sustained health experience
invites into deeper love
and wider extended compassion resonance
when synced with leftbrain either/or logistics,

Which,
when Left into fast and shallow competitive divisions,
become cancerously self-inviting
prophecies of self-fulfilling fear
that Ego is not enough as mortal ZeroSum identity,
and never was not irreplaceable part of ZeroSoul
to love eternally win/win integrity
while living here as irreducibly Now
by graced Beauty invitation
of Left with Right bicameral hospitality

In-between natural/spiritual integrity icons
of EarthMother nurturers
speaking rebirth unfolding baptism’s warm wet slow-grown redemption memories
through the Way of seeds in soil,
the Truth of wombs in Soul,
the Life of secular-ego/sacred-eco RootSystems
in nature/spirit communal EarthTribe

Neurologically connected,
psychologically positive,
sociologically integral,
ecologically synergetic,
theologically systemic,
politically creolic,
biologically consilient,
geological EarthTribe health energy,
democratic invitation
into a more cooperative wealth/health-based win/win economic paradigm
of empowerment
for enlightenment,
ecstasy.

Ecstasy,
climax,
resonance,
robust health as wealth,
Trust as Beauty peace experiences;

All the above
natural/spiritual relationships no grandparent,
too smug and self-satisfied,
would fail to invite,
and not incite,
into our great grandchildren’s wise ecofeminist/masculine
both/and
left/right hemispheric
West dualistic/East nondualistic
slow-grown revolutionary
ecological systemic theology
of health as resilient beauty experience

Everyday
Everywhere
Everytime LeftHere with RightNow
co-presently restoring RootSystemic ZeroSoul peace.

An important difference
between climate health
and climate pathology
is a discerning capacity
to invite slow
and deep integrity
ego/eco-learning relationships.

Worshiping Violence

God,
like Heaven and Earth,
could only be universally transcendent
creative energy

If also unitarian immanent
recreative integrity.

This may appear to be a glitch
to those who believe
we have a manifest divine destiny
to grow
grow
grow and multiply
without concurrent responsibility
to harmony within one shared web of life,
integrity strength with resilient flow.

Contrary to popular capitalistic opinion,
violence,
and threat thereof,
is not a win/lose zero-sum option,

Like slavery
and racism
and colonization,
power-overing is a much more toxic
lose/lose
vicious-encircling
lack of win/win
compassion-optioned choice-making.

Risky,
like choosing clothing-optional strategies
for vulnerable transparency

But,
without the sunburn
and danger of staring,
scaring small children.

Talk of the Town

Luther Vandross recorded a song
that says something like
“We had the best love around…
We were the talk of the town.”

I can’t think of the last time
a greatly famous and resilient love affair
was the talk of even TinselTown;
and certainly not New York,…
maybe Paris?
Hong Kong?
Too Western commercialized, I fear;

Shoot em up
Mow em down

I would love to see and hear the day
I open up my YahooNews
and every viral video window is about resilient compassion,

How passionately the Trump family
comports their compassion together,
transparent and vulnerable,
courageous and curious,
intent on serving Earth’s subclimates
seeking resilient health empowerment.

Maybe a side bar
about how the Pelosi and Trump extended multicultural kin
hang out,
karaoke and canoe together,
share gardening tools,
tell each other scary climate holocaust stories
while circled around a bonfire of un-vanities,
comforted by twinkling stars
and a predictably waning and waxing ecology
of moon enlightenment.

Jesus said,
or maybe it was Paul,
but some patriarchal and powerful
and passionate person,
That followers of Christ’s messianic redemptive way
truth
life,
would be known by their amazing talk
of the town, counter-monocultural,
love for each other,
and Earth’s natural/spiritual beauty.

So, maybe Mahatma Gandhi was right,
alternative compassionate win/win Christian community
is a fine non-violent communication
compassionate idea,
messianically bodhisattva suffering servant designed,
but not yet fully implemented,

Or at least not enough
to fill all these little YahooNews viral windows
with visions of great loves,
like Superman and Lois Lane
or maybe even Barack and Michele
and their kids,
and their kids,
and their health wealthy kids.

It would be grand
to share a planet
with others addicted only to great miulticultural love stories
of communion,
epic tales of cooperative political economies,
co-messiahs of healthy wealth
offering each other a full-bodied minded polypathic hug
rather than the mistrusting
right hand dominant shake up
and shake down
of competitive capitalistic
win/lose monopolistic
gamesmanship.

I long for a compassionate multi-pathic EarthTribe
including Christian evangelists
for God’s creative Kingdom at left
and right co-passionate hand,

And Islamic FatherSun benevolently hospitable
and grateful
fundamentalists
for radical global Win/Win communion economies
built out of mutual cooperative trust
and not national competitive narcissism
in mutual disinterest
and denialism
and nihilism,
and secular-Earth/sacred-Heaven dualism.

Capitalism
begets colonialism,
not mutually cooperative investment
in health
and wealthy creolizing beauty hugs.

Commodification of Earth
begets further mistrusting handshakes,
automated mass shootings
of potentially viral health allies,
great loves,

As colonial win/lose evolution models
develop inevitable lose/lose climate run down
run away
get the hell out of here pathologies
of depression and despair,
great longing for epic EarthLovers to return
becomes the talk of our global village,
turning Left interdependent side up
and Right fragmenting national egotism’s autonomy down

Probably right after singing Imagine
together
a world committed to restoring peace
and great international epic EarthLove stories,
mutual communion passions
to never again think of health vocations
as other than wealth of global village purpose
and resilience of ethological
theological
ecological meaning
as both nothing and everything
beyond health of GreatLove’s everyday ZeroZone experience,

Whether the talk of my town
and your town
or merely the shadow of a wistful smile
while turning off the too early morning alarm
announcing yet another day of longing
for more co-invested compassion
while singing and dancing Imagine

Less military-industrialized lack of emotional intelligence,
less capital colonizing commodifying
our own potential health integrity
of great and wondrous ego/eco-relationships,
healthy natural space
for wealthy organic time.
