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.

Oh,
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.
Anyway,
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,
synergetically,
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
feeding
watering
nonviolent ecological communication
and experiential regenerative theology.

Well, my goodness!
Look at the time…

Exactly,
the space within bilateral time,
Here within timeless Now,
Yang strong atoms
Yin flowing spiraling strings of waves,
LeftBrain dominant monoculturalism
undermining RightBrain prominent multicultural communication
unfolding in-between
chaos and complexity

Alpha and Omega
One and Zero bionic
bilateral double-binding
bicameral
natural ecological egos
and spiritual theological-neurological eco-habitats
sacred within as climates secular without
health reforming multicultural wealthy experience,
collateral compassions
of Zero NonSum-ologies;

Each of these
WinWin strategies
for healthy resilient systems.

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

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

Looking for Love in Right Places

I find
hear
see
right hemisphere prominently feel,

But cannot quite touch
something sexy
about left/right cooperatively resonant
waves of wealthy ego-rooting
eco-rooted health.

I suppose
whether felt as sexy
or more generically sensory,
depends on neurological origin
and completion
of sensory information
and climatic exportation.

Spiritual resonance experiences qualities
of our multicultural
EarthBound journey together
and apart

As naturally resilient outcomes
of felt left/right integrity,
glimpsed and heard
when resonantly touched,
bring consensual pleasure

And,
sometimes,
as inclusively appropriate
invited
graced,

Sensually sexy disciplines
of physical passion,
metaphysical waves
of revolutionary
resonant compassion
minding
and reminding
20/20 loving insight
through restoring
by healing
global EarthJustice integrity,
sensory spirit of sexual nature.

Wanted: Master of Awe and Wonder

From birth,
I,
and perhaps others
from rebirth,
seek a spiritual master

With profound male maturity
to connect spiritual mastery
with natural sensory mastering events,
narratives,
non-verbal
and verbal relationships
bonding
double-binding
birthing
and rebirthing co-passionate story,
mundane
and cosmic events
integrally felt and known together–
impossible apart

With mature disciple
disciplined reception
masterfully given
potential for mutual pleasure
to please me,
compassion’s please
pleasing perpetual integrity,

A journey from local
through global,
back
and forth,
in
and out,
rising
and falling again

Immensely deep
and dark
wide multiculturing explosions,
preferred master powers
imploding copassionate integrity,

Of felt sensory awareness,
sensually touched consciousness
spiritually grasping enlightenment
sexually gracing co-empowerment.

God Is Love: Love Is God

A problem with using scripture
as a spiritual guide

More prominently
more fundamentally
more evangelically
than establishing a relationship with a mentor
a teacher
a spiritual director
facilitator
mediator
between egocentric LeftBrain dominant reading
and ecosystemic RightBrain sacred listening
for integrity
synergy
interdependent nuance
healing
divinely restorative justice,

When we first hear,
“God so loved Earth”
we naturally conclude
such compassion is incompatible
with God so loved all of Goddess Earth’s
living indigenous Tribes
regardless of colors
like green
red
yellow
brown
purple
violet
ultra-violet,
even burnt orange,
and black and white
which are more about oppositional contrasts
of light
and melanin
than any color
shade
tone brilliance or dullness
of left or right mind.

Then, later in the same verse
beloved by monoculturing missionaries,
we read
“Whosoever believes in God’s Son
will not perish
but have eternal life.”

As if these words also read,
“Whosoever does not LeftBrain hear
about God’s Great Messianic Historical Event
will perish
and will not have eternal life.”

Which RightBrain feelers for integrity,
listeners and discovers
of Win/Lose redemption-committed multicultural mediators
like Holy Spirits
universal Win/Win lovers,
compassionate teachers
and healthy resilient ecofeminist leaders
can transparently
and vulnerably hear
as a false negative corollary,

An illicit LeftBrain sin of omission
inappropriate for a universal EarthLover God

Made in humane LeftBrain verbal images
of judgment
Straight White Patriarchally entitled
to blame
and shame Others for ignorance
sin
failures of win/win universal principles
to remember to keep sacred
as Sabbath and Scripture
all Golden Rule everyday compassions

Both LeftBrain true Facts
and RightBrain beautifully interdependent Relationships
of Inform/Export-Communic-ation

Communion
Tran-substantiation
Creolization
Re-Ligion
PolyEmpathic Integrity
of individuals’ secular thoughts, local
and synergetic sacred feelings, global.

UnNatural Generalists

I am more of a generalist
than a specialist
on nature
and on nurture,
on secular
and on sacred,
on ecological healthy relationships
and on theological interdependence.

Still,
like most reflective beings,
nourishing my interconnected rightbrain
while understudying leftbrain dominance
as a species
finding our spiritual natures
mysteriously segregated
from more natural nurturings.

Martha Rogers,
nurse educator extraordinaire,
describes me,
and you,
as whole,
open,
and, like all living natural systems,
temporally unidirectional.

Although, perhaps an important difference
between rightbrain spiritual
and leftbrain natural lives
of reflective bicameral awareness
is our capacity for imagining
temporal bidirectionality–

Enspirited time imagined running
forward and back again
from today’s starting point
or last night’s
or tomorrow’s

Especially when leftbrain comes into active verbal dialogue
planning healthy networks,
designing wealthy
natural/spiritual nurturing
yang/yin
left/right
ego/eco-systems
of non-violently secular and natural,
AND compassionately sacred and spiritual

Whole
Open
polypathic/polyphonic
living generalist paradigms
for active/reflective
restorative justice healing dialogue

Applicable to both natural climate health
and spiritual multiculturing wealth.

Steadfastly Unsure

I remain unsure
of how to reliably
robustly
resonantly
resiliently
and yet autonomously distinguish
between contemplative leisure
and contempt provoking laziness.

I remain unsure
why Eastern metaphysicians,
spiritual/natural nondualistic teachers
continue to describe
ego as not only ignorant
of identity’s leisurely origins,
but also lazy-eye False;

And,
in a positive corollary,
I remain steadfastly unsure
Why ego’s experience of living Earth
is not merely an insufficiently delusional lens
but also is taught
as an unnecessary laziness of mind illusion

Blocking truer natural polypaths
and more beautiful polyphonics,
octave harmonies of sight and sound,
air and water
and tables of cooperative/competitive
electronic-fractal contents
of touch with feeling,
physical with metaphysical experience.

This confusion,
about necessary ego individuality
and unnatural EarthMother detachment,
not normal segregating experience,
insufficient multicultural health
to thrive wealthy resilient EarthTribes,

Leads to teaching Ego and EcoExperience
as entirely False
because only partially TrueHealthy
is a stumbling block
for straight white western patriarchal minds
dualistic consciousness
theoretical awareness
capitalistic investments and
social-cultural transfers
through win/lose eco-politically privileged
distorted education systems
not provoking deeply nutritious
and widely nurturing
polycultural design and outcome education
for Beautiful Truths
artistic sciences
theoretical/experiential musecological metric systems

Of LeftBrain dominant entitled EarthDwellers
as autonomous real estate owners
experiencing some measure
of white patriarchal
fundamental dualistic success
in sacred eco-health v. secular ego-wealth
win/lose propaganda wars

Where ego identity
is necessary to secularly survive
but hardly sufficient to spiritually thrive
ecosystemic resilience

And experiencing Earth’s healthy climates
is not only naturally True
leisurely ego-wealth
but also more than sufficiently lazy
spiritual Beauty

Power for both nondualistic
reliably unsure hemispheres
to declare egos
and Earth health
and pathology phenomena False
feels unnaturally lazy
and unspiritually rushed,

Like rightbrain expansive East-West
dialogical communion Wisdom
being compressed
into True or False
leftbrain dominant soundbites.

Bad May Be Good, Someday

But probably not today
will positive neurological compassion
express without win/lose capitalistic traces
of intent,
expecting only win/win cooperative discussion
and deliberation
and bicameral discernment,
these eco-politcally empowering hopes
and dreams
and non-violent communication investments
will restore EarthTribal Peace

Earth MatriarchalPeace
is also positive
sacred ecofeminist
green power

Doors to Perception
Revolving changing nutritious light
communication
and nondualistic dark bicameral healthy memory

Restoring caretaking and caregiving EarthJustice
is also democratic grassroots inclusive energy,
positive and negative historic multiculturing/monocultural root systems.

Energy is
EmPowered Mass is
spatial place
and transportive time-power is political
whether involving the cooperative politics of a root system
or the more competitive politics of run-away monocultural
colonization by one species
against all polyculturing Other species,
cultures,
subclimates,
theocratic ecosystems,
Green Goddess YinRivers of Transport,
GrandMother Full/Empty MoonLight
SunLight ReSourced ReFlection.

Compassionate global win/win communication
light=energy=ecopolitical therapy opportunity
could restore health-optimizing EarthJustice,
multiculturally mediating EarthTribe Peace,
including GrandMother Moon,
both Full and Empty,
someday,
but not tonight.

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
proctologists
urologists
cardiologists
and invasive neurologists.

I must concede
not prickly enough
indeed
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
of reverse hierarchical
above Truth lies downside Beauty.

Mesmerizing,
I’m sure,
temporized the Earth Therapist,
while human nature
military-industrializes ancient cooperative relationships
the remainder of EarthTribes
continue to evolve and emerge,
breathe out and in
bilateral gooey prickles
social and natural
metaphysical and physical
ecosystemically informed egocenters,
communitarian capitals,
well-timed spatial places

Not knotted polyvagal positive theories
of EarthMother’s original neurological root systems,
bicamerally restructuring
to emerge new leftbrain capital-invested upstarts
of deductive
reductive
extractive
either/or dominant thinking

When too engorged,
unilaterally engaged,
prejudicially divested,
unknotted,
untied,
profoundly detached
yang v yin pathology
for sufficiently prickly/gooey
mountainous river valleys of in-between
ego/ecometric bardos balance

Living/dying
inside outside EarthTribe
cooperative bilateral empathy
ecologically theological,
naturally social sacred,
historically multicultural,
anciently new green organic age,
biological neuro-system flowing

Fractal DNA
primal four dimensional spacetime
not ZeroSum

ZeroCore
prickly full of Either/Or bilaterals
and gooey Both/And bicameral
not not empty
enthymematic reiterations
of prickly force Yang
and gooey flow Yin,
win/lose exploration
and win/win absorption,
exhaling capitals
and inhaling communions,
natural empowering light
and social enlightening beauty
of positive eco-political psychology.

In Our Distance Circle

Once upon time’s center
grows two permaculturing farmers,
multicultural mediators
of Earth’s healthy polypathic remainder,

And, surrounding them,
seven elders
and their cheer leading mascot
of disabling foolery

Arriving each spring
in his wheeled chair
to witness
and sometimes loudly prophecy,
to entertain with his win/win intentions,
studying compassionate economics
and empowering politics
and enlightening neurological communion
v dissonance.

These aged and playful snowbirds
form a Wisdom Circle
conjoined by all farmers

Committed to Earth’s health care
in humble Vermont neighborhood places
spaces balancing Green Lives Matter races
into organically interdependent co-investments.

This Circle plans cooperative gardens,
MultiCulturally designing
and redesigning shared outdoor climate spaces
in and on now abandoned places
they purchase together
to divest of Green Commons neglect
and invest in a local cooperatively-held enterprise

With land and water and healthy air-based capital
where patient customers
become curious partners
contributing cash
but also labor,
beauty
and nutritional equity,
gracious investment
and/or benignly viral infestment.

This Green Wisdom Circle
plants fruit and nut trees,
vegetables EarthMothers insist they eat
and would like as much as fruit sweet
if they remain of right/left balancing mind.

They plant hemp,
and make baskets
and yoga mats
during dispersed winters
into the retiring diaspora
season for planning futures
of health restoring EarthJustice.

Circles of weavers
and knitters
turn lambs
into shorn sheep
into yarn
into blankets
socks
sweaters
skullcaps
winter masks
with ear muff handles.

Eventually
this Circle will reincarnate Wisdom
into Fire Circles for compline meditations
and story telling
into Singing Circles
of care medication
for young through old,
for those present living now,
and here dead
and yet to arrive
within all sacred regenerating species,

Egos circling within ecosystems,
interweaving networks
of TruthSeeker Circles
sharing win/win BeautyVisions,

Communion Farming Centers
within nonviolent communication systems
for engaging nutritional health,

Sacred ZeroCore recovery Allies,
not Lone Warriors,
within Earth’s fully present
compassionate
care giving as receiving.

Good and Bad

“Shih” translates into Good
as “Fei” becomes Bad.

And so moral textured oppositions
continue:
Right and Wrong
Healthy and Pathological
True and False
Win and Lose
Healing peace and Punishing revenge

Yang and Yin
distinguish rational appositions,
not sufficient as Either/Or left-brain calculations
and necessary Both/And right-brain
correlative associations

Like Yes and (not) No,
Positive and (not) negative
Is and (not) Is Not
EgoCenter and (not) EcoSystem
Inside and (not) Outside
Wax and (not) Wane
Rise and (not) Fall

Each of these implied
double-binding terms of co-related contrast
includes an enthymematic hypothetical boundary
bound with both Full and Empty Zero
languaged as not numeric
or stagnantly spatial framing
but more dynamic temporal dipolarity
co-arising into consciousness

Ego’s secular empowering Zeroness
is also EcoZerofilling articulation,

Healthy democratic
and not pathologically autocratic,

Trusting cooperation
is not over-capitalistic competition,

Moral value evolution
is other than merely rational avocation,

Deduction
is not precluded by induction,

Thoughts
are not absent of feeling,

Moral balance
expects more than relativistic legal shadows,

Conserving Earth’s lifetime resilience
is not merely avoiding EgoCentric
cognitive/affective dissonance,

LeftBrain truthful polypaths
are not instead of RightBrain beautiful polyphonics,

Polycultural EarthTribe outcomes
are not sufficiently predicted
by Monoculturing narcissistic incomes.
