Touching With Kindness

Some parents and cooperative school teachers
and classroom and bus aides and drivers
are discussing government regulations
restraining transportation providers
from providing therapeutic touch,
because of an over-compensation
for emotional dysfunction behaviors
leading to appallingly irreverent touch.

Toxic touch critical events
predict long-term non-lifegiving,
non-wellbeing consequences
in young
vulnerable,
transparently frustrated learners

Typically,
healthily born with WinWin internal/external co-relational cognitive assumptions,
confluent expectations,
positive neural receptivity is therapeutic
while negative interceptions are toxic,
pathological.

We discuss our unhappiness
about current administrative restraints
on giving healthy therapeutic touch,
but no such caring restrictions apply
to receiving healthy
appropriate
therapeutic touch
from our wounded,
Win/Lose fragile,
fragmented,
cognitive-affective dissonant disarranged
kids.

We seem to be heading in a direction
that would more positively hypothesize,
Despite past risks of exposure to toxic touch,
and apathetic untouch,
we do not want to restrain therapeutic touch
with our arms and hands,
our feet walking and dancing in cooperative solidarity,
stepping out rhythmically, together
with our voices of kindness,
mouths speaking and singing
with ringing patterns of kindness,

Integrity fully-embodied
to support resilient WinWin therapeutic touch relationships.

One of my daughter’s school transportation providers
learned therapeutic massage from a yogi,
Who began their first hands-on learning class
by reassuring those about to receive a student’s touch,
and those about to give their first intentionally focused massage,
that there is only one mistaken choice to avoid,

Massage, any form of verbal or non-verbal touch,
turns from therapeutic default
through toxic abandonment of communication, untouched apathetic restraint,
and also when too aggressive, much more so when actively violent,

Toxins,
nonverbally and/or verbally non-communicating counter-therapies
are Win/Lose neural neglect,
lack of therapeutic mindfulness,
to not touch by therapeutic intent at all,
whether with our WinWin intending hands
or solidarity voices
or any other of Earth’s neural receiving and giving
eco-therapeutic receptors.

So, I remind my daughter
of what the yogi message therapist said,
We only want to touch with kindness,
With our hands
and with our voices,
with our preferably dancing bodies
and our more therapeutically singing mouths
and signing hands
and signaling feet.

Her transport team listens,
laughs,
maybe a touch more relaxed
about possibilities for therapeutic WinWin touching
wounded Win/Lose dis-encultured students
on their often too-neglected journeys
in well-being life-skills
for enhancing healthy wealth resilience.

While us caregiving adults
continue to cooperatively talk without touching
among our comparatively privileged selves.

Who I Am Right Now

Who are you?
he asked perpetually, patiently
because I invited him to do so
until our time for contented me
to discover his diversely integrated/fragmented identities,
stories,
critical acting
and singing
and dancing
and warring
and terrorizing
and confronting events
right now,
and in past network iterations
and throughout future synergetic neural regenerations
of lifeline transgenerational memory.

Who are you?

I am an interdependent neural-systemic journalist,
a witness hoping to WinWin reconnect
with cooperatively invested communion ego-courage
to know and appreciate you,
your inhabited past
and echoing future
and my own best regenerative green sanctuary ego-self.

Who are you?

I am curious
about your enchantment
with interdependent neural webs
of communication,
toxic and therapeutic,
between humane capital heads,
comparing and contrasting green economic and nutritional co-investments
in democracy, not privilege,
usually cooperative,
but sometimes dissonantly suffering competing bodies
longing for relief
from EarthTribe’s WinToday to LoseTomorrow mortal enculturations,
wounding marks of perpetually anticipating tensions
about who we are
and are not yet
together.

Who are you?

I am future cooperating courage
to believe our WinWin dreams
and needs,
our hopes
co-arise positive and negative feelings
for and of, against and fleeing from,
green optimizing sanctuary communion
communities,
families,
hearts and minds
restoring polypathic neural democratic trust
communi-nonstatic
creolizing
vulcanizing resilience
between what we think and feel and resonantly say
and where we choose to use
our therapeutic hands and feet,
left dominant minds
punishing and restoring health-right holistic bodies,

Interdependent therapeutic webs
of natural body and spiritual minds
bent toward co-passionate green-means-healthy-grow relationships,
non-sectarian
non-partisan
non-violent
non-apartheid
non-privileged patience
with partial WinWin green sanctuary communions

Actively hoping for EarthTribal DNA interdependent stringing messages
within EarthPlaced integral HereNow messengers
listening, then gratefully speaking
Namaste.

Now it’s time to turn this listening/speaking table,
Who are you?

Then, for a later session,
How are we resiliently green cooperative communicators
communing communion communal
compassionate sanctuary together?

And,
please avoid terms like
communistic communalist
because that raises all sorts of toxic
anti-social isolating unkindness and impatient paranoia
and misunderstanding of original WinWin democratic motives
moving toward green social well-being prosperity,
as if liberality of love
could toxically threaten conservational green therapeutic defenses
found in robust democratic webs of deep resilience
rather than patriarchal fake-walls of privileged resistance.

These Liberating Truths

I’m musing with Jill Lepore,
historian (Harvard feminist, but definitely within brackets of general interest),
through eight hundred pages of These Truths
telling an other U.S. herstory.

She starkly says,
“Slavery is political”
while I had been thinking more of addictive economic
and punitive domestic relationships,
enslaving social absence of healthy relationships,
Dr. Lepore reminds me
about powerful natural/spiritual inter-relationships,
where overpowering addictions meet underpowering enslavement.

Nationalistically political
community-toxic apartheid,
personally oppressive-repressive ego-supremacist pathological
for both LeftBrain long-term smart investors
and RightBrain universal-frame cooperatively sentient property(ies) development.

LosePredator/LosePrey colonizing politics
again this historical effect
of insufficient interdependently synergetic web-spinning together
a healthier WinWin history/herstory
of ego/eco-normative
nature-spirit ZeroZones,
left-rights
yang-yins
Universal mountains of suppressed affluent strength
with
Unitarian eco-valleys of depressed effluent flowing grace,

Deductively autonomous truth labels
with
Inductively not-interdependent/not-fragmented flow
of ambidextrously apathetic suppression of impassioned feelings

Competitive Either/Or
with
CoOperative Both/And
nondual co-arising networks of communion,
ComPassionately owned nutritional RightBrain sentience,

Although perhaps not quite so much LeftBrain
dominantly effective/affective sentences.

ReImaging history
re-employing fertile/stagnant qualities
re-deploying LeftDominant language
of RightWing over-reactionary capital-royalist apartheid
competitively bought and sold with an ego-defeating loss,
disinvesting oppressions,
repression walls,
depression webs

RePlaced by healthier
more ego/eco-therapeutic
LeftThought and RightFeeling positive non-platitudes
actively hopeful re-creative tensions
interdependently webbed, networked
images for binding positiveYang with negativeYin,
egalitarian double-binary binding
negative past personal/political effects
inviting more positive WinWin future health causes,
more opportunities for deeply and widely trusting democratic communion,
natural and spiritual,
pan-sectarian
polypathic HereNow
ZeroZone spacetime
4D co-relational integrity,

Growth of cooperative power opportunities
for owning compassionate freedom,
and not so much LoseLose politics of slavery
and walls
and anti-herstoric
patriarchal LeftBrain dominant privilege

To invest in writing
and publishing
and reading eight hundred pages
of cooperative freedom v competitively enslaving U.S. life
pro-healthy political regenerative voice,
speaking truth to degenerative commodified economic
anti-ecological death of a healthy
multicultural future climate opportunity,
historically declaring cooperative integrity life
or death of violent non-solidarity.

ReGenerating 2020 Hope

I once heard,
Hope is what can positively happen
after listening to all the realistic facts
and then continuing in good faith anyway.

I also heard,
Cynicism about others,
like narcissism about oneself,
is sadly generative,
contagious

Just as hope about others
and compassion with oneself
are happily generative,
contagious.

Both negative and positive attitudes are generative,
but hope is cooperatively regenerative
while external cynicism,
like internal narcissism,
like ecopolitical fascism,
is degenerative,
competitively contagious.

Cynicism flirts with Lose/Lose outcomes
projections
often escalated by competing
“If you think that’s horrible enough,
listen to this terrifying tale…”

Despite our broken
wounded
depressing cynically competing natures
and narcissistic nurtures
of Business As Usual stories of competing
capital-hoarding ego-centrism,
Active 2020 hope looks for WinLeft/WinRight options,
plans,
eco-operatively reassociating
mutual ego-healing
across all multicultural
and polypathic
non-sectarian
good-faith systems,
cooperatively-owned nutritional networks.

Regenerate hope is what happens
after listening to all the RealTalk
co-operating healthy passions
anyway
anytime
anywhere
everyday.

WhiteHouse Narcs

I’m hearing considerable chatter about patriarchal narcissism,
which is, indeed, absorbing and darkly fascinating;

But, I do wish we could invest at least twice as much energy
on analyzing climate therapeutic potential
of ecofeminist compassion,
re-synchronizing Time’s sacred-secular co-investments
re-combining healthy bicameral minds
re-linking wealthy co-passionate bodies,
domestic
and external.

Empowering Passions

In passionate psychology,
powers of proactive compassion
are generally thought of in personal
and familial
interdependently relational
perspectives.

In political science,
powers for proactive compassion
resist reactive competition to overpower the opposition,
and energy for liberal love
constrains against investments for conserving capital-driven capacities
for hoarding,
feeding and fueling multi-generational greed,
and the social altruism and violence such powers
might restoratively or retributively justify
as ethically valid and morally effective
even if not immediately peaceful and universally democratic,

Robust political powers
are typically thought of in the public sector,
applying state and national perspectives,
stories,
power histories advocating cooperative public policies
and commercially marketing unnecessarily risky investments in egocentric chaos,
reductive consumerism,
conflicting materialism,
greed,
mendacity,
hubris,
anthro-centrism,
aggressive nationalism,
violent racism,
deadly fascism,
enslaving colonialism,
toxic patriarchalism, etc.

In psychology,
we can easily extend cooperative power
to neurology’s integrity of positive energy,
active internal networking,
contrasted with disintegrity of negative power,
fading energy thoughts,
extinguishing co-empathic feelings,
feeding internal climates of hostility,
paranoia,
rabidity.

In political science
we could extend power as analogous to economic energy,
cooperatively democratic investment in actively healthy compassion,
growing integrity,
and a darker competitive run-away dysfunctional
nationalistic
supremacist energy unmindful of deadly ecological chaos,
delusional divestments
disturbing disintegrity of public sector negative energy,
entropic
nihilistic
health-threatening policies,

National health power v pathological disempowered feelings
extend positive energy climates
of active democratic compassionate missions

Antithetical to reactive
plutocratic capitalism, exploitation,
A more narcissistic,
sometimes even sadistic,
sense of fear-mongering
hate-marketing
anger-imaging sedition
from global promise of healthy power futures
for integrity’s compassionate eternal ZeroSum energy interdependence.

When our individual actions
do not reflect our personal powers for extending compassion,
then we can choose to train
and plan
and network for healthy change.

But, what to do
when public sector actions,
choices,
priorities,
do not reflect one’s compassionate power/energy political training
committed to international EarthEmpowerment
deep learning,
wide-passioned teaching,
polyphonic education?

How do democratically faithful individuals
and compassionate faith-in-action communities
restore healthy peace
and non-sectarian justice for all EarthTribes?

Indigenous,
and yet emigrating;
Immigrant,
and yet already green sanctuaried;
Healthy-life pilgrims,
migrant laborers, producers, consumers, families,
evolving communities whose only talking-walking labor
is to survive competitive
commercialized
retributive justice normative educational systems
suspicious of diversely compassionate climates
and cooperative political co-passions
for regenerative energy trends.

How do we cooperatively and resiliently continue
to financially and communally support
government leadership
defying universally shared non-sectarian values
for a democratically inclusive health and happiness prosperity
of resilient energy systems,
organically compassionate constitutions?

Literature Standards

My standard for literature,
whether romantic
or academically sobering,
and preferably some hybrid in-between,

Literature teaches me
something I had not previously known,
but somehow felt,
about myself.

Even better,
also teaching me something new
about logos life on Earth

And mythic even better,
also teaching me something long implicitly precedented
about loving life
within revolving frames
of evolution’s flaming
and quiet shaming
history.
