Variation On ‘Giving To’

An important truth of compassion therapy
endorses co-investment,
cooperatively sharing from a back-and-forth healthy heart,
to receive a wealthier, more resonant, mind,
improved by NonZero-Sum win/win inspirations
more strongly than Zero-Sum win/lose aspirations.

To improvise on a Giving To
Ruth Bebermeyer melody,

I always feel less given to
when you won’t take from me–
When you don’t understand the joy I feel
when heard by peaceful you.

And, you don’t know
my giving is not done
to put you in my awe,
but because I want to grow this love
I feel to win with you.

To receive life’s grace
may be Earth’s greatest health.
There’s no way we could separate
the two–Earth and life
grow wealth.

When Earth gives to me,
I give you my receiving.
When you won’t hear from me,
I feel Earth not given to,

when you take from me,
I can feel Earth given True.


Note: “Given To” lyrics by Ruth Bebermeyer, found on the album, “Given To”, and published in J. Rosenburg’s “Nonviolent Communication” as practiced in “Compassion Therapy” as felt in “EarthHealth Resonance”  through sacred economic co-empowerment.


Virile Veracity

Sacred communion,
taken in by mouth
and nose
and ear
and eye
and touch,
compassionately felt in community,

Becomes left-brain anxious about competitive totalitarian communism
while right-brain celebrating cooperative win/win Green Commons
of ancient reproductive health,
bilaterally twinned,
binomially intertwined,
bicamerally belonging

Yet longing not to become entirely ego-absorbed
without remaining cherished interdependent identity,

Part yet whole;
Whole yet apart
whole Earth polypathic
polyculturally communal,

Left secularly invincible
either/or powers of thinking
with sacred Right both/and feeling invisible

Transparent flexibility
mixed with absorbing love,
together breeding Integrity

Coming of age,
Going of non-change

Viral spirals
downward viciously viscous
and upward
virtuously visionary,


Identity discovered through relationship,
nutrition recovered through nurturing nature,
culture uncovered through history,
theology covered through ecology,

Transcendent revolution through immanent evolution,
communal experience through communication,
secular thoughts through sacred apparitions,
motions through emotions,

Here through now,
Space through time,
Community through communion.


As I Understand It

If I understand correctly,
and this seems infinitesimally likely,
which is nearly infinitely unlikely,
but anyway,
If we do think bilaterally,
then we have regular imagined
and remembered,
reweaving and unweaving,
diversity through spacetime,
and then we also have RealTime 4D diversity,
and also perversity,
which is primarily,
and maybe Prime Relationally,
0-Sum absence, as in vacuum,
of healthy diversity.

I am a student
of practical and therapeutic Political Science.
They called it Public Administration,
as in Civil, and not so much UnCivil, Service,
and Community and Economic Development
and Creolization
when I went to grad school.

And teachers and mentors added nutritional elements
of PermaCulturing Design
to achieve more PolyCulturing LongTerm EcoPolitical Outcomes,
where “eco” stands short for cooperative economics
and ecological
and ecosystemically rational health care
and receiving
through mutual balance of diversity,
which is,
more or less,
the absence of monoculturing ecopolitical dualdark perversity,
like being for social and cultural and financial and further empowering cancerous sickness
rather than well-culled and spread around wellness.

I must have missed something
because this appears fairly
dipolar appositionally clear,
as in not opaque,
nondual balancing between diversityYang
and perversity not-yet-squared Yin,
where double-binding knot-squared
equals 0-Sum regenerative fractal,
like Eulerian prime-relational function
and like RNA,
and Her plant spawned phylogeny
of respiratory and digestive and root bilateral ecopolitical systems
of and for nutrition and expulsition,
should there have been such an eliminating
reverse exformational

Where “Her” above
always refers to Special Case Mother Earth,
as appositionally contrasted with “Him”
without Her RealTime,
can become kind of a patriarchal dominant
pain in the health and climate care-receiving
which is more of a desecration
and deductive dominant history
fascinated with perversities of NOT harmonic Special Case
patriarchal LeftBrain languaged dominance,
and NorthWestern Hemispheric domesticating
and commodifying totalitarian tendencies
to underestimate everything Yin correctly.

If I understand correctly,
as per Bucky Fuller,
in Synergetics 2 (pp. 427. 446-7)
Special Case
is always four equivalent spacetime equals RealTime diverse dimensional
quantitative information of the physicist,
a subset of the whatever dimensional,
and occasionally somewhat perverse metaphysicist
and ecopolitical generalists,
less both Left with RightBrain bilateral-diverse Conceptual
of Yang as convex universal system expansion
for radiating co-arising information energy integrity,
ionics as also bionic

Yin as a dualdark symmetrical co-gravitating internal system,
more “yinyin” as double-binding notnot
shortening equivocation
with universal system co-terminous internal contractions,
also concavely Eulerian-squared
equivalent with polynomial Special Case
radiant co-arising nondual
EcoPolitical 4D Yang/Yin Space-with-Time Qualitative System
with diverse polycultural
and perverse monoculturing
4D polypathic RealTime visible and invisible,
polynomially and notnot yet quite polynomially reweaving
as also co-arising nonduality.

as I said,
this seems only infinitesimally RightBrain likely,
so nearly infinitely LeftBrain unlikely,
that I heard all this bilaterally correctly
as 0-sum multiplying assets
through one bilateral-fractal octave
of ecopolitically developing octaves
equals me,
age 64,
in wonder and awe
about what feels likely diverse balancing,
and what is shocking as perversely monocultural
crimes against one’s own both Right and LeftBrained EcoCentric Ego
against all healthcare giving and receiving Humanity,
as against cooperative WinWin diversity information
OVER competitively perverse WinLose dulled imaginations
toward climate health
of EcoPolitical Mother Earth.


Humane Nature’s Seasons

Tao is Like the Sea
flowing and floating Within,
soul without incarnation,
soil without fertility.

Tao is absolute and has no name.
Uni-versal absolute Not-Not knotted Logos
without rope.
Though Nature unfolds.
Universe cannot be economized, commodified, used
If Wise Shamanic Rulers could sustain undefiled Universal Nature,
Earth would Yin-yield their YangHumaned Nature within,
as panentheistic without.

YangHeaven and YinEarth join,
And fertile compost rains solar-lunar rays,
Beyond human nature’s deductive-only reason,
Yet intuitively natured equivalently within all natural systems.

Our Left-Brained Dominant Culture generated Logos.
With deductive labels, sets, and static systems,
We regeneratively optimize by knowing when to stop,
Wisdom discerns nature’s systemic tipping points,
exempt from danger and dissonant decay.
Tao-Universal Intelligence on and in and above Earth
Ecological to solar rivers of gravity’s waves
reposing in the sea,
polymorphing Earth’s perennially regenerate wise-seasons.

Universe is Human Nature’s Sea of Mindfulness.

Seasons ripen for post-Aquarian  Fall harvest,
At long-last our millennial season for empirical
reductive-deductive Self-Bullying
now bidextrously obsolete
with ambidextrous
PermaTeleological Redemptorist ReGeneration.

Tao incarnates Universal Co-Intelligent Wisdom
as Buddha’s messianic-karmic Left-Right
West-East balanced brain.

We are Earth’s coincidental Sea-sons-and-daughters
reflecting Her universal wisdom enlighteration.


Note: This piece is a post-millennial transposition of Laotse’s “Tao is Like the Sea,” p. 172, Modern Library, Lin Yutang, ed., 1948. It also plays with nature’s 4-season regenerative functionality as human’s nature’s universal “cognitive-consonance” Sea of eco-normativity.
