Old Run Ins and Outs

Ran into an old friend
just the other day.

Has to have been
50 years
another way.

She made that big mistake
of asking what I’ve been up to.

Well, I’ve been studying
systematic multicultural theology
and, then, regenerative ecology.

that sounds nice.
Probably keeps you out of trouble.

Yes, well, I guess it is nice,
but not trouble-free.
Another word
might be “athletic.”

Like soccer?

More like gymnastics
and long distance running.
have you ever heard of Process Theology?
It has a first Christian cousin
in Creation Theology,

Brought to us sytematically
by Matthew Fox,
but also rooted more experientially,
by both Eastern and Western nature/spirit mystics.

Well, sounds like I have some homework
to do–to catch up.

Just Google process theology
or creation theology
or, better, both
and see if you can see
positive correlations
for those with ears
to hear.

Ok, well, thanks.
I’ll get right on that.

Then, look up regenerative ecology,
restorative environmental justice
and try creation ecology–
and maybe positive psychology’s Theory of Original Matriarchal Attachment.
See if they all sound alike
more paradigms for sprouting polypathic
nonviolent ecological communication
and experiential regenerative theology.

Well, my goodness!
Look at the time…

the space within bilateral time,
Here within timeless Now,
Yang strong atoms

had to check my texts.
Kids, you know.
Never stop being a responsible parent
or friend.
Were you still talking?

If a verbal communicator
or sits
or squats in a forest
of non-listeners,
is the cooperative communicator speaking
or just talking within myself?


Deepest and Wisest Use

Real estate buying and selling businesses,
competitive capitalist agency

Began with commercial
corporate relocations
and quickly spread
to domestic competitions
to sell high
and buy low.

Highest and best competitive use
has become an industry maxim
for facilitating transactions
of human housing habitats–
less concerned than another time
for humane home sacred ecohabitats.

How would real property look and sound,
touch and feel,
smell and taste
healthier and wealthier
if we were to reconsider this maxim?

Real healthy estate agency
and mnultigenerationally mediates
deepest and most robust
cooperative occupancy!
ego/eco polypathic presence!
cooperative economic awareness!
active democratic political consciousness!

For me,
this reweaving of cooperative win/win facilitation,
leadership through nonviolent listening
to clients,
potential clients,
future cooperative ownership
immigrants and emigrants,

Speaks to and with green new deal
cooperative housing mediation,
restorative justice communication
to foster healthier,
more robust,
resilient communities

Of multicultural
regenerational trust,
care giving and receiving,
democratic prosperity
and economically resilient well-being,
rooted in our indigenous tribal memories
and flowering as our future cooperative housing
and healthiest environmental communion habitat
bilateral health/wealth
ego/eco-conscious balance,
natural rhythms,
spiritual patterns of healthy seasons,
internal and external
habitats of self/other-optimizing
downsizing climate risk,
by upsizing cooperative health opportunities.


On Democratic Compassion

A Unified Account of Causation, Constitution, Persistence, and Emergence

Rögnvaldur Ingthorsson

Metaphysics of properties,
I explore the prospects of a causal explanation of constitution, persistence, and emergence. I will suggest that the idea that causation involves the mutual manifestation of disposition partners allows us to think of compound entities as mutual manifestations of dynamic interactions between the parts that constitute them, and their persistence as a result of that dynamic interaction. However, I think we need to modify the conception of mutual manifestations. The mutuality has been described in terms of the equal importance of so-called disposition partners—pairs of active and passive powers—while the interaction between the objects that wield such powers is characterised as unidirectional; one object acts while the other receives the influence of the action. This view is challenged by the fact that the natural sciences do not recognise any form of unidirectional action. Instead they depict all interactions as perfectly reciprocal, in the sense that whenever one object exerts an influence, the other simultaneously exerts a proportional influence of the same kind on the first, but in the opposite direction. I suggest that to accept the reciprocity of interactions only strengthens the viability of a causal account of constitution, persistence, and emergence.


I wonder if this same causal effective explanation might apply to bicameral co-passion and bilateral health investments, and co-gravitation, for that energy matter, temporal binomial inside/outside space, ego eco-ing experiential neurometric prime relationship of left and right hemisphere co-passionate communion; where Yang=1x and Yin=0y-squared to the four dimensional nutritional recycle of octave double-binary fractal strings of regenerative DNA bicameral bilateral ergodic potential structure of compassionate golden rule consciousness.


Positive Neurological Psychology

The problem with positive psychology,
said the good doctor,
it is too social science squishy,
not leftbrain prickly enough
for natural science pathologists
and invasive neurologists.

I must concede
not prickly enough
said the polyvagal systems neurologist,
but sometimes premature complexity
looks like yet another chaos theory,
and sometimes spiritual prepowerment
feels like merely natural enlightenment
yet deja vu,
and sometimes too bilaterally sticky
predicts co-arising redundant dipolarity,

Neurological bilateral structures
of left meets right hemispheres
as West greets East
multicultural mediation
as ego hugs ecosystemic health-rooted trees

And Everyone In Between

In theology,
and healthy ecological
and pathological relationships,
I know self-righteous fundamentalists
and nonviolent nondualists,
and most everyone else
processing together

how such an abstraction
between fundamental uniformity
of sacred energy
and nondual co-arising unity
of divine light,
can sever a healthy
polynomial balance,

A harmonic resonance
championed by the newer
fundamentally either/or deductive processes
of verbal language
calculating oppositional contrasts,

And the other flowing from ZeroSource memory
reincarnating nondualistic both/and inductive
karmic intentions,
preference for healthy
appositional comparisons,
20/20 vision…evolution…regenerative resolution.

In ecological compassion
between egoLeft and ecoRight,
Yang NorthWest and Yin SouthEast,
and theological wealthy
positive co-relational wisdom
between EarthNature and co-arising HolySpirit,
national cultures and global climates.

I know denialists of good faith
good humor
and good healthy
multicultural extended democratic
green families,

And I know apparently wiser co-arising
dipolar both/and
nondualist wisdom seekers,

LeftBrain dominant
and RightBrain spiraling

Half Conscious

She was half listening
to a Tibetan male philosopher.

He spoke in timeless wise prose
by suppressed
Western natural theories of mind.

She heard repressed
Western timely spiritual experiences
of sensual sensory bodies.

He sang lyrically
of cultural vocations
perpetually turned toward enlightenment.

She spoke rationally
of permacultural designs
systemically perpetuating
healthy democratic empowerment.

He thought about natural
multicultural mindfulness
as time’s seamless spatial integrity.

She felt sublime
within polycultural
spiritual embodiment
of Earth’s revolving
nurturing synergy.

He was half speaking
to a Western ecofeminist theologian.


Love’s Constant Complexity

that Christian theologians
have traditionally agreed
God is unchanging

Because steadfast in love,
loyal in omnipresence,
faithful to omnipotent powers,
all with regenerative intent.

Yet Eastern philosophers
look at these same healthy
empowering traits of Earth’s complex
regenerate nature,
and see,
and/or hear,
organically sense,
this universal enlightenment
unveils a metaphysical reality
of sacredly relentless Change.

God is as unchanging
as transient thoughts
and feelings of complex compassion,
responding to Nature’s strength
through flexibility,
unconstant evolution
through constant revolutions of Earth
and all Her interdependent Tribes,

Western patriarchal
capitalistic concern
about a changing God of love
and retributive justice
and unEarthly peace
in a rapturous Heavenly future
may include issues of confusion,
between Nature’s complex cooperative Relationality,
and secular Theories of Relativity.

If everything is relative
to everything else,
then morality,
safety of unchanging natural
and spiritual principles
become shifty,
potentially dissonant,
more than terrifically co-relational,
uniting through mutual flexibility
more than uniform
through unchanging orthodoxy.

But, Eastern nondualistic theory
is rooted in multicultural nonviolent experience
of fluid Relationality,
compassionate cooperativity
of constant win/win healthy natural change
which does not suggest nihilistic chaos
of space v time
or mass v energy

constant nuanced regenerative relationship
of time equals space-cubed proportionality,

Zero polyphonic energy
regenerating One
polypathic co-relational Universe

Naturally within
and spiritually surrounding
Earth’s constant/correlative
enlightening co-empowerment.


Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
theological ecology.

western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
communal saints
and divided sinners.


Researching Races WithIn

Racism research
and therapy
often oversimplify
Elite patriarchal against NonElite ecofeminist
LeftBrain dominant complexities

Confusion between LeftBrain privileged and RightBrain fragile,
Elite v NonElite
lack of win/win integrity experience
of RightBrain’s repressed shadows,
felt dark intelligence,
indigenous peace,
ancient wisdom

Modern EgoCentrism,
without EcoCentral communion,
is LeftBrain dominant
Elite self-identity
out of touch
with GoldenRule gratitude,
cooperative democratic wisdom attitude

In a Western dualistic
LeftBrain educational support system
dominantly focusing on cognitive
reductive individualism,

Either always Truly best
or always False and unrewarding
short-hand capitalistic evolutionary world view

In Left with Right creative tension
with co-passionate felt appreciation
of revolutionary Earth
and all Her Tribes,
viewing our win/win
integral spinning world

PolyFramed environments,
internal and external experiences,
interconnected systems,
metaphoric mutual climates of his/her-story,
polyphonic colors and tones and hues
and octaved encircling cries
of polyculturally deep learned resonant re-membrance,
TransRacial Renaissance,
patri/matri-coarising Revolution
Thrival outcomes/incoming.

White privilege and concomitant fragility
through Left v Right apartheid
historically points toward climate
interdependence and fragility,
inside as outside,

Outside terrifying inside anticipations
of both negative risks
and positive opportunities
like double-negative=positives
not not in metaphoric collusion
restoring health/wealth
nurturing/naturing peace,

Racism research
and therapy
complexly bicameral
Elite patriarchal
reweaving NonElite matriarchal
reverse-hierarchical depth,
indigenous nondualistic wisdom.


Reforming Democratic Faith

Seems like advocates for cooperatively-invested dialogue
are concerned about indoor classroom experiences
that feel a lot more like debate
or merely academic,
cold analysis of win/lose evolutionary history,
in which might proves rightwing kleptocratic victories
while lefter democratic peace voices
fade into non-violent
non-verbal communications
just among our oh-so-tolerant lefty hugging selves.

I’ve been talking to our Faith Formation Director
about why Unitarian-Universalist Universities
and are not
appropriate educational dialogue multicultures
for any faith formation,
active hope reformation,
compassionate therapy development,
climate health rather than more climate pathology.

It seems that good faith formation
precludes bad lack of trust deformation,
egotistic debate cultures
where winners take all
and losers run off in search of some safer classroom.

For me,
outdoor classrooms feel safer
for win/win multicultural dialogue
between nutritionally communicating allies,
consuming and producing healthy natural elements
like richer soil,
cleaner water,
better air,
balanced ego/eco-systemic climates
where distinctions between wealth and health
are held collectively for further refinement,
and not hoarded autonomously
for further isolating definitions
into either-or thinking
without sufficient emotional intelligence
for both health and wealth of feeling.

Outdoor classrooms
endorse dialogue
about how ecology and theology,
like science and sentience
outside and inside,
refine good trusting faith formation together
more left and right hemispheric
rightwing and leftwing heuristic exploration
toward in-between mutually cooperative discovery
uncovery of win/win potentialities,

Rather than all that inside classroom
business as supremely left-hemisphere academic
anthropocentric left v right debate
about whose cold calculating weapons
are best for overpowering warm organic tools
of Earth’s most polycultural producing healthy wealth.

Reforming left and right hemispheric dialogue
feels better,
naturally and spiritually,
holistically and holonically;
outside ecological relationships
forming good faith
of and for inside theological compassion.
