Class of 1970

When I was in my Michigan high school
I found something both promising
and sacred,
portentous with rural, yet also urbane, PositivEnergy,
in and among our graduating classes
of 1970.

Ending with mindful roundness
of Zero.
Preceded by almost octave fullness
of sacred potentiating Seven.
Echoed more gobslappingly
by double-digit Nineteen,
promising most of us
a transmillennial journey
toward WiseElder restorative therapies,

Sacred healing ceremonies
and daily co-invested
deep learning eco/theo-logical lives
with 2020 Revolutionary Vision.

The 1900s of our DNA development
preached Ego’s know-how
to EcoSacred ZeroSoul 70s
need and hope to know why-now

The 80s will surely turn us toward Beloved Muses
living in EcoVillage Beloved Communities
of restored EarthSoul Peace.

A universal PeaceCorp journey
through why and how individual de-militarized Egos,
by EarthSpirit above
and EarthSoul within,
interdependent Zero Prime Identity Relationship
with divine Spirit inspiration

Entirely at 2000 home
in a coming
revolutionary active hope
toward 2020 Truths with Beauty
Tipping Points of double binary boundaries
bilateral lives
in soon coming EcoVillage Habitats.

Beloved communities
cooperating political sacred trusting Friends,
Bodhisattva Collaborators,
restoratively healing CoMessiahs,
Western patriarchal WinLose Souls
with Eastern matriarchal nondual WinWin
DNA-RNA Solidarity,
Advocates of and for ZeroZone Spirits.

Both secularly portentous
and sacred Wonder
and Awesome PositivEnergy Spirits
emerging from 0000 toward 2020
through our incarnate
multigenerational stories

Both spatially LeftBrained deductive
and temporally JustRight inductive resilient
YangSpirits looking up and out
with inside resonant YinZero-Soul

Looking ecstatically forward

after our fifty years
in deep listening learning wilderness

resilient-resonant multiparadigmatic eyes

Alpha through Omega
double-binding Yang strong past
with Yin flowing future
dipolar restorative WinWin
ZeroZone healing
of too many bipolar 19s and 7s
with their intrinsically irrational issues
shading understories,
cooperative co-incidences.

So why is
Let Peace Begin With Me
typically sung
in ZeroZone C-Major Yang
and four-part yinternal harmony
of ZeroSoul
for slow march paced
toward wellbeing
Yang/Yin bipolar now dipolar
nondueling so love co-arising
to Let Peace Begin
with 2020 We?

In 2020 Business As CoOperative EarthFirst Usual,
why do Beloved Musing Entrepreneurs
so often do well
and become WiseElder ahead?

In 2020 forests,
why do Yang cooperativists
prosper through restorative yin-therapies?

Cope well with a bit of climate pathology
without over-reacting
by trying to eat and hoard too much of Earth
in our own time?

Thereby depriving
all our potential post-millennial generations
their fair share of living baptismal water purity,
loving fertile soil and soul responsibility,
knocking on wind-blown doors
of healthy possibility.


Urbane History MathLessons

I have a hardbound copy of
“The City of Hartford 1784-1984”
although most of this coffee table story
of unfortunate events
takes place between 1850 and 1950s,
before and after the UnCivil War,
like the U.S. Catholic Church
and many MainLine Protestant WiseElder headcounts,
reaching peak population
during the 1950s,
followed by a slow declining landscape
of pathological degenerativity.

Numbers stand out.

The still published Hartford Courant
began as a weekly Connecticut Courant
in 1764.

In 1938
a hurricane brought us 7.4 million dollars in damages
and 4,000 homeless human lives,
not necessarily in that reported order
of moral priority.

This was the first hurricane in 123 years.
But, our history book back in 1815 records,
nor rewards,
no damages or homeless or lost lives
from hurricanes or otherwise.
No lives that mattered
on this timeline.

Between 1850 and 1900
“Fires and Catastrophes”
result in loss of 53 lives,
about ten per decade,
one per year,
and $1,190,000 in lost property values;
about $220,000 per decade.

These same numbers during the subsequent fifty years,
from 1900 through 1950,
are 216 dead,
a 400% increase in the wrong direction,
primarily due to a Ringling Brothers Circus Fire,
which does not report
any loss of elephants
or lions
and tigers
and bears,
much less wicked monkeys.

Damages grow from the previous century’s total
just over one million,
to over $11 million
between 1900-1950;
about $2,200,000 per decade–
a ten-fold mean depression in prosperity.

In 1956
the burning of St. Joseph Cathedral
and St. Patrick’s Church
quickly add another $5,250,000,
bringing us to about $16.5 million burned
and otherwise catastrophied away.

With growing human population values
and investment in our healthy infrastructure
technology and buildings,
transportation and entertainments,
comes greater risks and costs
for sustaining healthy educated lives,
quickly escalating challenges for resilient goals
of healthy-wealthy loves,
theological grace
and ecological karma.

Lives authentically and universally pro-sacred life,
not merely secularized anthropogentric
and extractively commodified
and deductively reduced to a less demanding moral standard
of merely tolerating LoseLose abortions,
totalitarian sociopathologies,
retributive punishments
of divinely inhumane climate pathology.

To grow in pro-life extending communities
is to develop restorative healing
born matriotic of
and for
resilient health
and resonantly distributed WinWin buoyant wealth,
sustainability of nutritious
nurturing Yang with Yin co-arising climates,
both healthy interior
and exterior wealth-regenerate landscapes.

Restoring resilient peace
is hampered by punishing
and suppressing symptoms,
eliminating histories of social anti-life wounds,
aborting darker NegativEnergy subpersonalities.

Healing lack of wholeness,
horizontal ego restoration
bred and fed across extending family regenerations of leveling time,
And vertical economic-above
and ecological-within
WinWin wholeness
reweaving ZeroZone Prime Relationships
within Matriotic Earth DeepSoul,
with Patriotic SunGod NatureWest-SpiritEast Yang
bilaterally resilient daily
annually perennial compassion.

Resiliently, resonantly loving
synergetic grace-karma
in-between ego wholeness journeys
and rebuilding pro-life environmental
family enhancements,
eco-sacred WiseElder supportive listening
learning to speak in polycultures,
polyphonically meta-paradigmatic–
like colored facets of a rainbow.

Polyculturing resilient outcomes
for individuals,
and neighborhoods fading without healthy
WiseElder multicultural resonance,
yin-Earthshade away
without wealthy YangLeft-SunLight
resonantly healing communities.

Reducing climate fires and catastrophies
asks more than communities
with passively cooperative co-invested theo/ecoLogical Education
for resonant secular/sacred politics
advocating cooperatively-owned democratic economics,
spiritually-naturally healthy dipolar cultures,
featuring nutritious food production and local organic consumption,
energy democracy regeneration,
absorbing more pro-life wealth resilience protection.

We also need family and
neighborhood-embedded mentors
teaching-listening ego-health development
through our movement and song,
not mere words lacking experiential depth
through humaneLeft-divineElderRight
WiseElder wealth resilience.

Resonant universal pro-life communities
emerge RightBrain cooperative protection,
nurturing vital multicultures
felt as healthy polycultural learning environments.

Resilient community histories
seek resonant family futures
active Left-Right balancing adults,
WiseElder potentials
for WinWin nurture,
cooperatively secular/sacred nondually re-educating
initiate listening with next deep learning generations
eager to revitalize
sacred, yet also deductively secular,
polycultural nutrition practices.

Healthy children still seek other PositivEnergy democratic mentors,
allies economically Left
and aesthetically Right
sociopolitically Left with Right,
Left naturally embodied
Right spiritually WiseElder
PermaCultural mind consciousness.

Resilient communities and cultures
grow resonant individual mindbodies,
bilaterally conscious co-investors,
ZeroZone self-identified WinWin persons,
whether individual or incorporated conglomerations,
WinWin EarthGaia Souls
understory songs and dances
revolving resonant WinWin SunGod Yang
Revolutioning Spirits
therapeutic WinWin resonance.

Resiliently self-organizing communities
compost WinWin organic subsystems
capable of local cooperative responses
to sometimes catastrophic Tipping Point changes,
universal ego-in and eco-out systemic environments,
notLose in and notLose out
bilaterally cooperative commitments.


Resilient bilateral creolization,
opposing competitive colonization,
presents a ZeroZen polynomial set
of non-violent cooperative ideas
to WinWin re-engage
with dipolar consciousness complexity,
reweaving resilient resonant cooperatives,
YinIn and YangOut,
ingredients giving health-wealth wise rise
to Yang with Yin, and not against,
bilaterally revolving healthy resonance loving outside
bicamerally revolutionary
wealthy resonant resilience inside

With glinted eye
toward 700 future regenerations,
whether in urbane GoldenRule Hartford,
or EarthTribe ZeroZones elsewhere.


Taliban Tales

How wrong could I be
were I to assume
most Taliban leaders
in Afghanistan
have aging parents?

Especially mothers,
as it is not specifically healthy
to be a male in such a violent
nutritionally-barren place

And Taliban parents
might also have kids hungry and thirsty
and afraid to give us grandkids,
for economic and political starvation reasons.

It might occur to healthy energy democratic leaders
thinkers and feelers
that feeding
and restoring healthy therapeutic ecosystems
could grow better polycultural Afghanistan wealth outcomes
promised by Allah
and YHWH alike.

Restorative, rather than more extractive, retributive justice
could work more WinWin effectively,
than continuing bad karma retributive violent goals
of assured mutual environmental destruction
and inhumane death and dying and terrorizing
paranoid children,
and other forms of almost incalculable dismay
through strategies rooted in punishment
and threat
and counter-terrorism terror,
visiting the sins of fathers
upon Yang soldiers
and Yin sacred daughters and aging mothers alike.


Wendell Berry’s Boutique

zero-waste stream
permaculturally designed
and cooperatively owned
are no more or less Democratic-Boutique ecopolitics

Than AgriBusiness
extractive anti-ecological
rather than restorative-ecosystemic therapy,
competitively owned
and Business as Usual capitalist-colonizing designed
multinational conglomerates of anthro-hubris greed,
are no more or less Totalitarian Universal Supremacist ecopolitics.

I heard a young woman farmer
raising grass-fed cattle
on her small organic farm
designed to restore health to Southern
RedState topsoil,
as well as to her kids’ kids,
future farmers of Postmillennial America.

She believed the small scale
of her natural-spiritual restorative farming economy
placed her at a disadvantage
to receive government operational loans
as compared to multinational agribusiness conglomerates
using chemicals and pesticides
to kill topsoil
and extract short-term nutritional values
at long-term disinvested cost
to future healthy generations
and their dreams to health-wealth thrive.

A government farm subsidy expert responded:

If we don’t have enough capital to loan to everyone,
we are forced to give priority funding
to larger scale producers
with capacity to provide more than sufficient this-year nutrients
for our large domestic and foreign flooding markets.

She did not mention costs of growing obesity
and simultaneous malnutrition,
dual-poignant trends.

She did add,
The agricultural sector is complex,
composed of large agribusinesses
and small boutique operations,
and all are welcome by UncleDonald to apply,
after first saluting the TrumpTowers,

But she left unchallenged
the Farmer’s original matriotic complaint
of an uneven ecopolitical playing field
that actually favors large patriarchal corporate greed operations
invested in toxic
farming-as-raping sociopathic practices.

As I was listening to the farm subsidy expert
on competitive economics
make her case for giving separate but
only marginally unequal value
to these diverse nutritional scales,
small and more robustly large,
with distinct investment niches
available for public dollar support
of a presumably synergetic-democratic agricultural department,
without conceding undue favor to AgriBusiness multinationals.

Separatists, yes;
Supremacists for BusinessAsUsual, no.

I was starkly reminded
of an OldSchool KKK spokesman
who last year said
the WhiteBrother Klans are racial separatists
but not WhiteMale Supremacists.

It does feel like a pathological distinction
without a healthy,
non-WhiteWashed, difference
for present
or future lives
of and for thriving nutritional diversity,
deep sacred-secular ecological synergy.

When will pre-millennial threats
ever learn how to hear post-millennial therapies
as other than Boutiquely Synergetic?

I know…
I know!…
When we have to grow together
rather than continue failing apart.


Timely Universes

The Universe is the only self-referential reality
in the phenomenal world.
It is the only text
without context.
Thomas Berry

And yet
could no the same
be said of time
as text
without spatial context?

And could this universality of time as text
also become our co-gravitating unity
through co-arising diversity
of spaciating polypathic context?

Octavia Butler
defined God
as Change.

Time changes
or is eternally timeless;
a dead vacuous universal text
swelling and contracting
changes within timeless time
through eternally imaginable context.

If this Universe is God’s text
without further context,
then this co-emerging race through time’s distinctions
prefacing Earth’s voiceless extinctions
proves time’s full infinite eternity
contextualizes nothing more or less complete
than timeless here
as now,

Remembering time’s near completion
without date
or finite ego-measurement;
lacking too-reductive calculations,
deductive text within-
without inductive sacred context
for God’s Left and Right
YangForm through YinFunction

Universe as Sacred Change

Restorative Yang EcoJustice with YinYin-WinWin Peace.


First Uniting Nations

Honey, why doesn’t the United Nations include the First Nations?

Are you asking about Babylon
or Native Americans?
Who were, at the time,
thought to be more like wild Indians
by the movers and shakers of rapid industrializing history.

What about a Security Council
made up of the Maple Tree Nation
and the RainForest Nation
and the WaterDweller Nation
and the WingedFlight Nation?

I suspect that would be a transportation
and a communication nightmare.
Your First Nations
are too wild
and voiceless
for nurturing mutual health and wealth translations.
What language could they understand
and speak together?

Is that why the Security Council
is composed of its current constituencies,
because they share a common health as wealth language
everybody understands
and speaks cooperatively together?

Probably not.

I wonder if they might like to adopt some First Nation Golden Rules
for planting and harvesting.
(adapted from Robin Wall Kimmerer,
Braiding Sweetgrass,
p. 183)

Know the ways of the ones who take care of you,
so you may have the first clue how to take care of yourself,
by taking care of them too.

That would seem to preclude rabid overpopulating infestation
of any one overbearing Species,
or Nation,
or monoculture.

It does shed a variegated light
on UncleSam’s ways of taking and giving care
to existing United Nations
and First Nations
and even His own health and climate care giving
and receiving.

So what’s the next First Nation Planting and Harvesting Protocol?

Introduce yourself,
by re-introducing your active gratitude.
Become, and sustain, accountable integrity
as one who approaches each living system
asking to share cooperative life.

More of a WinWin mutual namaste,
and less of a who grabs whose hand first
and shakes the last life out of it
the hardest and fattest and longest.

I see it more like multiculturing root systems in a forest
waking up to a new spring day
totally in love with each other,
each in a uniquely knowing way.

That does sound like reasonable understory protocol
for a Security Council
surrounded above by a forest of United First Nations.
What’s next, if I may ask?

Ask permission before taking
no more than half.
Accept feedback.
No means not yet,
and sometimes never.
Yes may also include but not yet,
and sometimes always and forever,
more timelessly.
Never take the first
because everlasting keeps the last.

I guess what is first and last
is like figuring out similarities and differences
between First Nations and last natives.

And the first clue and last premonition.
Anyway, take only what you need
and no more than half what appears freely available.
Share cooperatively,
which is more positively, and democratically, sustainable
than competing side by side.
Re-invest respectfully,
with full ecological authority.
Never waste what First Nations have invested in you.
Remain as grateful as possible.
Become a national treasure,
in reciprocity for what you have received.
Succeed with the ones who succeeded toward you
and Earth will revolve Eden forests and habitats
fit for First and Last Nations forever.

Sounds like Yin planting
nurtures health care giving.

And swells like Yang harvesting
health care re-investments
of and for First United Nation ecopolitical grace.


Dystopic Opiates

Paraphrasing Dickens
speaking of Great Expectations
through Pip’s distraining voice,
Our worst religious weaknesses
and political meannesses
and self and other deprivations
are usually committed
for the sake of avoiding elitist people
whom we most actively distrust.

On the other hand,
trust invites vulnerability
as distraining poverty embraces wealth,
expanding democracy
and cooperative co-investment.

Oppressive religious and cultural repressions and suppressions
are opiates of multiculturing people
When monoculturing elitists
offer religious opiate addictions to domesticating ritual
thereby over-ruling democratic spiritual experience
of daily natural and cooperative liturgies.

Polycultural non-elites,
like young organic gardeners of polyphonics
and ecofeminist transgendering designers,
thrive best within an alliance
of the gentle and broken,
vulnerable and open
to new cooperative intimacies,
gentrifying neighborhoods and families
and hearts
designed by rural-memory values
for nutrition that also nurtures,
health that also wealths,
climates embracing edible and richly colored landscapes,
of and for regenerating
future generations
of and for polycultural cooperative EliteNetworks,
neither opiated
nor nervously nirvanaed nellies
nor disappointed
that WinLose investment
didn’t turn out
as WinWin actively hoped for
through EcoPolitical Constitutions
reborn in and through each matriarchal ego/eco-doublebound
organic governing womb,
probably not so Dystopically Opiated,
at least in our moments of original cooperative conception.

Or, we could end less simply Dickens,
with Great Expectations for avoiding:
Our worst religious weaknesses
and political meannesses
and self and other deprivations,
usually committed
for the sake of avoiding elitist people
(and other divine personages,
distraining gods and goddesses)
whom we most actively,
LeftBrain dominantly,
