Escape Into Silence

Escape into silence
moving out in still morning
across pine needle cushioned trails
toward Earth’s solitary
murmuring river,

Whispering from where we have come
to quietly slip
drift
ripple forward
into an expanding mouth
without inhumane voice

Escape into silence,
comforting respite

Leaving behind human,
even humane
compassionate stories
voices
sounds;
but not memories
fantasies
feelings
choice

These inevitably accompany,
friendly and hard lessons
blending into muffled landscapes,
sea sounds,
silent breezes
teasing past sense

Sensory
sexually imprinted
colored
wordlessly intoned
rhythmed
patterns harmonic
and dissonant
silently desexualized

Needy quiet traces,
tracks
footsteps hungry for most anything,
everyone

But embracing
inviting
all absorbing silence.

Shocking Senior Chakras

It feels difficult,
and more urgent in advanced single age,
when mind and root dominant chakras,
perhaps highest and deep best,
conspire against heart
and root resonant chakra,

Difficult
to conspire toward short term positive outcomes
such seniority should actively deploy
and then peacefully enjoy

While also entertaining
how to deeply respirate toward long term
resilient incoming
and resonant outgoing relationships
such wise elders
could fluidly compassion

With non-violent communication,
win/win cooperative ecopolitical development
conjoining these places
spaces
traces toward one’s own theological temples

Are another’s inviting ecological
co-relational passion
of mind
and heart
and deep rooting chakras.

An Attractive Thought Experiment

In this thought experiment
Adults, at least,
have developed three types of attraction
and attractiveness,
chemistry,
positive and negative
and in-between energy:

Heart attraction,
romantically associated
with touch and feeling,

Mind attraction,
more cognitively associated
with sight and sound
and, perhaps, LeftBrain dissonance
and more competitive
predative instincts,

And root sexual attraction,
primordially associated with taste
and smell,
swallowing
and letting go
biochemistry,
neurologically informed
and exforming passions,
rhythms,
communion and disunion patterns,
non-violent/predative communication structures,
win/win resilient
and lose/lose dissonant,
LeftThought and RightFelt pleasure/unease/disease

Ecological and Theological,
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
physical and metaphysical.

Leisurely Pleasures

Leisure:
Like retirement,
a feeling
achieved through patient paths
of health
and safety.

Pleasure:
A similar feeling
achieved through polypaths
of healthiest wealth
and risky win/win opportunities,
more actively curious
than passively patient.

Resiliently resonant,
leisurely pleasured
sensory awareness
we can no more be
with the same person,
in the same place,
at the same time, twice
Than we can re-enter
the same river twice.

Baptismal pleasure
is less about one time immersion
than full time rapture.

Peak Empathic Experiences

Send me no more peak polypathic experiences.

They are too dear
for my everyday time budget
of liberal
liberated
liberating
resonantly exhausting compassion.

I am too addicted
to conserving resilient peaks,
avoiding dissonant valleys
of mundane anonymity
sometimes winning
sometimes losing
in-between equanimity
integrity of co-empathic
co-arising intent
for more co-operatively rooted
heights of sacred generosity
reciprocally felt gratitude,
positive, democratically sustainable attitude.

Every scientific cause-effect karmic statement
of peak interactive experience
does not have to be structurally
routinely tested
before it is accepted,

But,
to become an accepted hypothesis
of peak cultural interest
it must be capable
of being deductively tested
for sequential,
and co-arising peak,
or appositional unpeak, relationship
consistent
at least within prescribed parameters.

Every faith statement
need not have been personally experienced
before it is accepted
as orthodox belief,

But, good faith must be capable
of leading toward co-arising
climaxes of copassionate experience.

History of great scientific and religious revolutions
provides examples of paradigms
and medicines
and cognitive-affective
natural-spiritual
ecological-theological therapies
found explicitly useful
long before becoming autonomous subjects
of reductive cause-effect
karmic
experiential
experimentally reified verification.

History of great faith revolutions
provides win/win
external-nature/internal-nurture
cooperative examples of medicines
and paradigms
and meditations
and thought experiments
and bicameral polyphonic confluence
found prophetically useful
long before becoming subjects
for inductive co-arising compassion.

Scientific and religious historians
would not reasonably conclude
that testing hypotheses,
of win/win positive correlations,
win/lose negative bipolar reverse correlations,
and lose/lose not/not correlated unpolynomial variables,
independent and dependent
interdependent
codependent bilateral testing is unnecessary
or ill-advised
or acts of leftbrain deductive peaking hubris.

Rather,
ecological and theological theories,
physical and metaphysical,
may be politically
and economically
and spiritually
and naturally
and culturally
and socially
and psychologically
and neurologically significant
even before leftbrain dominant tested
for peak winleft/winright experiential outcomes.

The generation of deductive theory,
like regeneration of inductive good faith statements,
grows out of abstract leftbrain thoughts
conversing with rightbrain feelings,
metaphysical thought experiments
faithfully distinct from win/win climax confirming
or win/lose physically disconfirming
or lose/lose misconfirming unexperience.

Bicameral co-arising positive faith formulation
of scientific and religious
karmic theories of causation,

linear
and/or spiraling spacetime,
leftbrain dominantly reductive
and/or rightbrain prominently inductive,
subtractive
and/or summative,
spatially differentiated
and/or spacetime holistic,

Cooperatively predict healthy resilient relationships
between understanding
and standing under holistic systemic openness
to healing win/win peak experiences,
hope,
faith,
love,
polyempathic compassion.

Capacity to envision
new co-arising ways
of perceiving peak causal phenomena
and to propose powerful prophetic explanations
for good faith
positive health perceptions
is a leftbrain characteristic
of linear-deductive metaphysical formulation,
3Dimensioned orthodox spatial maps
structures,
tropic frames of trophic reference.

RightBrain co-relational observation
and LeftBrain experimentation
do not,
in competitive isolation,
provide bicameral revolutionary peak experience
polyphonic reconceptions
without which
faithful everyday inquiry
is randomly aimless
and dispassionately blind
to peak poly-empathic experiences,

Too unresiliently dear
for ego’s everyday time budget
of good faith liberal
liberated
liberating liberation,
resonantly inhaling exhausted compassions
of history’s polycultural peak experiences.

RePurposing Anger

At last,
we are angry with each other
coincidentally,
simultaneously,
which may be a coincidence,
but probably not;

Depending on active faith
in linear cause-effect relationships,
leftbrain dominant yang powers,

And/or
circular dipolar co-arising
co-passioned effective unpolarized relationship,
causes v effects = effective causal recycles
of rightbrain both/and recessive yintegrity.

Now,
at last,
we have set our synergetic communication stage
to test this ancient hypothesis
that two negatives
are equal to a potential positive co-passion,
as polynomials
may equal not not polynomials

Where positive
also equals leftbrain healthy
and rightbrain safe

And negative anger
equals leftbrain liberally
communication healthy
when rightbrain feels conservatively safe,

Despite never considering this internal hypothesis
because of patriarchal
dualistic
win/lose capitalistic faith
in not not equivalent potential
for ego/ecosystemic win/wins

Despite respite death through life
ego/eco-recycles
repurposing timeless eternity
of unity
more flexibly equitable
than uniformity
of leftbrain thoughts
with rightbrain feelings.

I Have A Son

I have a son
who worries

His economic vocation
requires a political vacation
from the rest of us
and perhaps even light of sun

Which hardly feels sustainable
or resonant
and certainly not win/win resilient.

I have a son
so brilliant
he could choose to hunt
and gather shopping carts
at Walmart

And find a way
to help shoppers feel
he is vacationing
with
and for all of us.

I have a son
whose most visible mistake
is believing his anger and fear
stem from missing invitations
to enter his one true
politically correct
and socially esteemed
vocation

As if any employment
he could embrace
would not become more sacred
by his warm communication,
cooperative invitation,
profound sublimation,
ecosystemic renunciation
of fear
to make wrong
ego-uncentering annunciation
articulation
of what he means
by joining in
with this multiculturing humane race

Of confusing
competitive and cooperative
eco-political pace.

Enrichment

What opposes enlightenment?

Endarkenment?
You know, like dusk,
evening,
end of a day
through end of time
on living Earth.

What opposes empowerment?

Disempowerment.

What might oppose Earth’s enlightenment
and/or empowerment?

For me
or throughout all multiculturing history?

Possibly both?

I see ego darkness,
depression,
fecklessness?
inability to cause
and/or perpetuate health,
safety,
individual powerlessness.

Do disease
and insecurity
and lack of effective power
feel like ways of experiencing poverty,
absence of healthy robust choice
for you,
as seems to be true of my experience?

Yes,
but poverty does not feel like a synonym
for dark feelings
or disempowerment.

Poverty, like racism,
feels more political,
economic,
more ecosystemic.

What is the opposite of ecosystemic enlightenment
and/or empowerment?

Ego isolation,
unsystemic pathological darkness
and/or disempowerment,
disease,
nonemployment,
absence of meaning or purpose,
economic depression,
recession,
political suppression,
dissociative sublimation,
narcissistic idolatry,
monoculturing rage,
violent zero-sum win/lose capitalism,
religious-cultural apartheid,
ecopolitical suicide,
globally generic genocide,
climate exhaustion,
ego-autonomous annihilation

Do these seem to oppose global
and individual
and local enrichment
for you?
as they do for me.

Perhaps what opposes positive multilateral energy
is always some unilateral form,
political
personal
familial
social
psychological
neurological
theological
ecological
economic
cultural
religious,
of impoverishing experience.

Love’s Constant Complexity

Interesting
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
safe
empowering traits of Earth’s complex
cooperative
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,
Forms,
Functions,
Flow.

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,
miscommunication
between Nature’s complex cooperative Relationality,
and secular Theories of Relativity.

If everything is relative
to everything else,
then morality,
health,
safety of unchanging natural
and spiritual principles
become shifty,
unreliable,
unpredictable,
potentially dissonant,
evil,
degenerative,
pathological,
dissociative,
terrifying,
terrible
more than terrifically co-relational,
cooperative,
loving,
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

Instead,
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,
pseudo-science,
nondual
nonviolent
inscrutable
paradoxical
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,
analogy,
theological ecology.

Polynomials,
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,
free,
liberated,
communal saints
and divided sinners.
