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?

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.

Moving Through Urgent Forests

I claim a sit-spot
in a wildlife sanctuaried forest
just beyond my backyard,

And cycle there
while seeking a primary distinction
between sexual and sensual feelings
filters
frames,

Already peddling toward suggestions
my motivations for this direction
could be impure,
prurient,
certainly less than perfection,

But,
I am not right-brain deterred,
This forest is my familiar territory
where fools
and wise men
fear to tread
on resonant ecofeminists.

When seeking
imagining
experiencing
remembering sexual possibilities
and impossibilities,
attractions
and distractions
and unattractiveness
along my recycling way,
these remain ego-centered
self-serving
egotistic patriarchal,
left-brain economic-politically strategic,
monoculturing further dominance.

Sensuality
is more interdependent,
co-relational,
co-empathic
co-passioning
integral
intimate awareness
of external mind touch
with internal heart feelings,
heart-pumping uphill
and soul-relaxing downhill,
inhilling
and exhilling.

Waves of contrast
speak of comparative dipolar motivators
more longterm both/and satisfying sensuality,

Contradicted
against shorterm dualistic urgency
for my immediate sexual release,
my internal-only organic polyvagal climax
quickly moving from transcendent forest life
to demi-segregating death,

And then riding on in
and out
to reconnect with my ego/eco sit-spot
with embodied sensual narrative
of this one sacred/sexual life
living polypathically
lived rememory
reliving naked forest life
hopefully again
and recycling pleasure seating again.

Practice makes perfect,
so our great everyday pilgrimage teachers
messiahs
boddhisattvas,
ecofeminists one and all,
say
and do,
ride
and walk
and talk
with integrity’s most resilient sexual/sensual/spiritual
reforesting win/win public/private wealth
reassur-dance
transcendent/intimate
global/local health potential.

Damp Grey Climate

On rain drenched mornings
words may feel too heavy
to absorb dense Truth,

May smell too bleached
to taste thin Beauty,

May sound too restrictive
to recreate revolutionary visions.

Yet, absence of words
may sound too drenched
in universal drizzle
to comfort,
to circulate lively blood
for warm interior climate cleansing

Rain water
distilling
tomorrow’s more fertile
silent soil
silk skinned soul.

UnNatural Climates

Speaking of climate health
and multicultural wealth,…

Yes. You have a question?…

Were you here for our previous session?…

No, I mean our most recent dialogue,
published just before this one….

OK.
Well, we were speaking of,
while deep listening to,
natural health systems
and spiritually nurturing ecopolitical wealth networks….

Natural climate health
and spiritual,
multiculturing conservational
conversational wealth,
of whole organic
open living systems
temporally unidirectional,
yet spacetime ZeroZone multilaterally
polypathic leftbrain
and polyphonic rightbrain….

Yes.
Thank you for your questions.
Anyone else?

OK, so I will assume those still present
and silently contemplating
were here for our prior guided dialogue
about non-violent communication
with religious rightwing dualists
fundamentalists
evangelically leftbrain dominant
monoculturally sinful and/or ignorant

Of a crucial difference,
severance,
double-binding oppositional bipolar divide,
a barrier to mutually helpful communication
we experience
between a sacred, theological experience
of reconnecting
reknotting
religion

And a secularized natural ecological relationship
of disconnecting
segregated
degenerating
privileged
violently closed
monoculturally supremacist
anti-religious dogmatic theory
of supremely autonomous anthropocentrism…

Yes,
like only humans
could live fully in Heaven
as on healthy Earth.

Which is much more about violently sinful nature
and fear of natural-spiritual sensory compassion
and closed system mortality
and anti-holistic
open handed eco-political democratic experience
within multicultural spirit optimization networks,

Leftwing/rightwing
bicamerally non-violent communication,
compassionate communion,
cooperative dialogue
restoring EarthTribe
natural health with spiritual wealth
democratic discernment

Speaking of climate health
and multicultural wealth….

Yes.
More, rather than less,
where we left off
in our prior right on
dialogical session.

For Greener Salvation

Merely personal green salvation
is necessarily incomplete,
All by myself,
sure to face sinful defeat.

Yet universal climate redemption
cannot become sufficiently replete,
to help my heart feel
less ignorantly stuck on re-delete

For monocultural remediation
we historically
and culturally at least try
multicultural mediation,
nonviolent communication,
polypathic emancipation,
polyphonic optimization.

Personal comparisons
and interpersonal companions
and ego/eco-bilateral
environmental habitual passions
can be divisive
dismissive emancipations

Competing religiously dogmatic theory
and natural/spiritually felt experience
schizophrenically competing
bipolar dissonance
empowers secularizing
minimizing
separating
dividing
unnatural desecration
anti-religious negativity
supremacy
missionary zeal
evangelistic violently prophetic communications
of natural environment mortality
and sinful conspiracy theories
and other bipolar forms and fields
frames and functions and flows
of dissociative bad news.

And,
internal spiritual v natural external contrasts
can yet distinguish analogical resemblances
between nurture and nature

Complementarity of open holistic religious systems
can become complexly unitive,
integral
negentropically cooperative

Rightbrain polyphonically prominent
redeeming our children’s healthy climate
through mutually cooperative
communicating positive wealth
of bicameral energy

Suggests leftbrain dominating
disempowering negativity

And
internal/external contrasts
distinguish metaphoric
multicultural resemblances,
complementarity of whole,
open
non-zero sum systems
can be complexly unitive,
integral
negentropically cooperative

Rightbrain polyphonically more prominent
actively working and playing for green redemption
of healthy bicameral positivity,

So,
Merely personal salvation
is necessarily incomplete,
All by my leftbrain dominant ego-self,
sure to face sinful defeat.

Yet open, whole Earth climate redemption
cannot become sufficiently bicameral replete,
to help my heart feel resonant,
less ignorantly stuck on sinful
short-term profits
unresilient
re-delete,
permanent social-cultural distancing
is also experienced as eco-political apartheid.

For pathological climate remediation
we historically
and culturally at least try
multicultural health mediation,
nonviolent communication,
polypathic emancipation,
polyphonic optimization
restoring green ecofeminist pacification.

Great Transitions

Great transitions became part of human experience
after we gave up on daily nomad lifestyle,
perhaps too bohemian
to have ever actually existed
out of nutritional nurturing choice

As contrasted with necessity
of drought,
floods,
pestilence,
famine,
chronic wars,
climatic absence of healthy peace.

Great transitions
are choices,
positive more than negatively motivated,
to move from one habitat
in space and/or time
to another
that feels more promising,
worthy of trust,
a potential celebration of interactive beauty,
holistic balance,
resilient health,
aesthetically resonant wealth.

Great transitions
have their inhale stage,
before the moving Team appears,
which includes hard and soft decisions
and indecisions,
memories,
and rude reminders
lacking acquisitive memories
about where did all these properties come from,
external
with their internally complementary feelings
of way too much stuff
in my cluttered life,

Happiness to be bringing warm memories along
and sadness to leave so much cold
and neglectful waste
behind the dumpster

And great transitions
also have their less famous exhale stage
after the moving Team
moves on
to facilitate another household’s preferably Great
but sometimes Traumatic
Transition.

Great transitions
in second stage
open one box at a time
to reload new closets
basements
attics
garages
sheds
shelves
entertainment centers
dress drawers
treasure chests
jewelry boxes
safes
mailboxes
kitchen and bathroom drawers
cabinets
medicine cabinets
CD and DVD racks
soundtracks
shoe racks
pot racks
wine racks
over the door hat racks
behind the door spice racks
tool racks and peg boards
hangers
umbrella stands
coat trees
bird feeders
pantry shelves
under the oven drawers
armoires
desks
hutches
book cases
curtain rods
picture hangers
linen closets
nightstands
pillow cases
guest beds

Great transitions
never die
they just fade in
to what remains of yesterday

Sufficient for this new age
of rebecoming
habituated
co-acclimated
seeking a healthier climate,
a wealthier place
for healing uncooperative
lack of felt resilience

To survive
and hopefully thrive
into our next Great Transition,
inhaling into recycling lungs,
exhaling out into greener
more resonantly resilient
Great Earth Habitat.

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.

From Our Front Porch

Porches,
attached decks,
patios,
intimate places for alfresco,

These make a difference
between a fortressed house
and a transparent home,
between an ego castle
and an eco-habitat.

We also spread rhododendron bushes
and hostas,
flowers and ferns
around our stone
and concrete bound foundations.

We want stable defenses
but prefer to camouflage houses
in organic color,
life giving and taking shapes.

These boundary vistas
speak of heart felt reminders
our habitat is rooted
in Earth’s wilderness

In vulnerability
hidden from transparency
except with those who share our sacred space
inside
and upon,
within our co-passioned present time,

Presence bonding,
double-binding,
re-membering past wildness
anticipating future re-generative
re-storative
re-habituating
re-acclimating
re-bounding win/lose less
for more win/win paradise

Just barely 2020 visible
and silently audible
and fresco fragranced
and tasted,
felt
and so nearly touched
longing into belonging
on our cooperatively-owned front porch.

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.
