Curiously Wealthy Paths

Vulnerability brings both risk
and opportunity.

Within a creolizing love communion,
intuitive sensitivity produces healthy heart-path outcomes
for oneself
and others,
with opportunity for win/win escalation,
contagion,
cooperative curiosity
that overwhelms,
yet mutually embraces,
competition-edged courage;
risky competitions in courageous transparency.

What need of courageous vulnerability
where and when curious transparency
quickly wins this healthy good day?

For all within Earth’s sacred wealth communion
so radically
co-passionately invited,
conservative with courageous competing risks,
liberal in interdependent love opportunities
creolizing life’s communal invitations.

Tools Become Weapons

LeftBrain uses words
like communal tools
and autonomous weapons

While RightBrain invites rhythms and patterns of sound
and silence
like poetry
and lyrics,
sometimes angry and frightened turbulence
sometimes loving and reassuring sibilants
murmuring Earth’s quietness.

Of these,
LeftBrain weaponed words
cannot be truly free
speech to unwarned
so unprotected
listening libertarians,
messages fired against militant non-listeners
already armed to demolish
voices unprepared for retribution.

Healthy tools become deadly weapons
when used against
those they were transparently designed
to vulnerably serve
strength of LeftBrain truth
as RightBrain’s chiming beauty.

Without these two
held proactively together,
free speech is any message
from any medium
tragically unfree.

Fractured Caregivers

“If I could turn you on,
if I could drive you out of your wretched mind,
if I could tell you
I would let you know.”
R. D. Laing

Ronald Laing
was a troubled psychotherapist
and a notoriously terrible non-dad
who heard dark voices in double-binding schizophrenia.

Knots of contradictory negative emotions,
needs,
troubling demands and troubled expectations
non-verbally underlying attachments,
sensed relationships
between two people
and within families,
and other,
larger
eco-politically Stated, and officious, Voices.

I need you
to want to be with me
not because I need you
to care for me
and about us.

I do not need you (society, Earth)
to want to be with me
because I need you
to care for me
and about us;
regeneratively double-bonded.

Laing could not see
these two “not”s
as both/and resiliently knotted
at peace with each other’s harmonic in-between strains;

The geometrics
of and in-between not-not
can equal a positive.

His solution was inclusive rebellion.
I wonder what mine will be,
has been.

I hope for a 2020 revolution

rather than left-brain detachment deflowered.

Faith in Politics

Faith in politics is not popular.
Other than optimistic civics teachers
and elected office holders,
faith feels troublesome
when mixed with social empowerment
over Others.

“Others” holds and hides broad diversity:
children
women
people of color
prisoners
slaves
indentured servants
pets
cattle
sheep
farms
plantations
ranches
watersheds
melting ice caps
rising sea levels
polluted air
worn out topsoil
sewage disposal and highway and military systems
industrial production and consumption and devolutions…

Good faith in power
is faithful to power WITH Others,
WITH win/win co-aspirations,
and ego/eco-active non-ZeroSum hope
for health increasing more
openly contagious co-integrity.

Bad faith in power
builds reasons to justify
power against and over Others,
with win/lose evolutionary ZeroSum assumptions
about economic closed entropic-trending systems
currently favoring Western white privilege.

The faith

[belief
reason
emotional and cognitive intelligence
left-brain win/win active hope
and right-brain felt love, compassion, integrity, co-empathy]

of Messiahs

[and Bodhisattva PeaceCorp Warriors, global mustard seed planters,
Hiawathas and Renewable Energy (inside and out) Advocates,
and Ancient EcoFeminist Wisdom Healers]

is rooted in early cooperative intent
to push together toward light

[integral harmony singing Voices of Other
health
mutual empowerment
happy, inviting climate therapy
potential for personal
and global
integrity].

Good faith in politics
seeds active hope
for multicultural empowerment,
co-passioned love for synergetic health
as also true organic wealth.

Faith in healthy empowerment
is as original

[seminal
ZeroZone right-brain prominent
sacred
sacramental
integral
creative
rebirthing]

as our first pilgrimage
from EarthMother’s womb
into this timeless light
of healthy passage
into interdependent passions
yet including autonomous
re-creative tension
promulgating win/win revolutionary intent.

Healthy intent
to see with both eyes equally

[curiously
courageously
secularly Left-Either/Or
and sacredly Right-Both/And
cooperatively win/win
nutritionally strategic]

To hear
both future right-healthed
multicultures
and past left-wealthed
polycultures
listening with
and then speaking up and out for organic
Faith in health-power
multipoly-pathic Voices

Still wise enough
to avoid monopolizing integrity’s Light.

E-motive Economics

Emotional intelligence
is best watered
with transparency
and fed through vulnerability.

Vulnerability becomes accessible
through practicing win/win courageous expectations
even in the most enduring partisan win/lose spaces,
secular and sacred

Transparency becomes articulate
through practicing multicultural curiosity
active and benign and free of prejudgment
and western white straight male
military-industrialized,
sometimes too fat and monoculturally self-satisfied
to become more than tolerant,
throwing outbound left-brain dominant
impatient-worded weapons
where right-brain interdependent active curiosity
listening tools
and win/win moderating skill-sets
for watering left-cognitive
and right-emotive
polyphonic intelligence
might foster rational reasons
to support resilient ego/eco-health care,

Receiving and giving balanced economic
ego-logos/eco-mythos
emotional intelligence,
emotive motives
best curiously watered
with courageous transparency
and fed through con-celebrated vulnerability.

Natural Tea Intelligence

“Nature yields to artifice,
not artifice to nature.”
Iain McGilchrist

Winning yields to lost and last identity,
not ego-loss to healthier winnings,
more ecosystemically robust.

LeftWing values for transparent
inclusive
democratic rights
more than royalistic wrongs,
yield to RightWing
nationalistic
white supremacy,
not artifice to integrity
of healthy climax powers.

Integrity yields to dualistic mendacity,
not artifice to InTegriTea,
seasoned by and with Earth
Mothering experience,
memory,
longing,
promise,
passion…

Embracing compassion yields to anthro-hubris snarcyschism,
Win/Win gives out to Lose-society/Lose-individual
divided cynicism,
not Lose/Lose mendacity
found in TegriTerrestrial Tea.

Drinking inTegri Tea
is a wonder spatial
awesomely timeless temporal
way to set aside sufficient Right
over not enough Left time
to communion within
and out our perpetually migrant sensual selves.

When I drink in TegriTea,
I only drink ego’s eco-integrity.

I don’t need to think
about tomorrow’s objectives
but also feel with fellow-migrant in TegriTea subjective
workers yielding to co-players,
mentors yeilding emotive facilitators
of compassioned communication.

I can stop all my alien divestments
while I drink in TegriTea.

When ego stops disembodied abstractions,
I can double-bind eco-attending
in natural/spiritual TegriTea.

There and here
only InTegriTea’s vast watering potential.

Here embodied
and Now timelessly temporal
is only we/me
in TegriTea
co-passionate inspiraling

Between me
and Inte-gritty
natural/spiritual
outside/inside connection,
re-connecting soil and soul.

I don’t want or need a cell phone
or computer
or even language
to watch and listen in TegriTea’s communion.

In RightWing dominant fact,
because I’m not emotionally speaking,
I can wealthier track
within this co-passioning in TegriTea

Ego breathes in,
I am aware inTegriTea’s fragrance
is here,
Ego is aware
my RightWing dominated body
smells in TegriTea feeling
and I’m eco-aware
that passion’s passing InTegriTea
grows healthiest
in resilient HereEmbodied
Now in TegriTea.

“Drink in TegriTea!”
invites a ZeroSoul Zen command
to bring me back
to our true
and trusted EarthMother wounded womb.

Don’t just think about and around
emotionally intelligent communion.

Be Here embodied
Now minded,
climate united in TegriTea.

I am trusting
this vortex time is by climate invitation
and not by paranoid
absence of co-present passion.

I am not yet a spiraling shadow;
I am embodied health
in TegraNation process,
and Earth outside knows
and inside feels
rations and reasons,
loves and passions

This Here/Now
a bilateral vortex in TegriTea’s cup,
deep and yet wide
yang and yet yin binomially stretched out
and down,
north
and south,
west
and east,
right
and left out
and in my tea-washed
tea-fueled
tea-nourished
tea-nurtured
in TegriTerrain co-passion,
spatial spiraling Wonder
returning hiccup in timeless Awe.

LeftWing green nature tea
yields reluctantly
to RightWing disembodied
spiritualized fake-zeal,
not RightWing unhealthy secular artifice
to LeftWing sacred health,
liberally sacred loving
liberate ionic
ironic
iconic IntegriTease’
emotionally intelligent Nature

Yields to artifice,
not cognitive artifice
to sacramental Nature.

Life On Top

I long to be the top new-green leaf
on the tallest swaying spring breeze tree
in my florid fragrant late-spring neighborhood.

Not to lord myself
as superior to all my more fundamentally plebeian brethren,
but to celebrate this vast sisterly view
of who we sunlit glowing are
becoming toward summer’s climax together,

Then falling gracefully
in full colored autumn,
when I will have the longest downward flighting float
of all migrations

Becoming, once again,
a sacred part of snow-covered soil
feeding next spring’s tallest new-green leaf
of All transregenerators.
