Mr. and Mrs. Spratt

My father,
who tolerated no fat,
predicted I would do nothing right
or good,
much less healthy,
in my lifetime.

My mother,
absorbing nothing too mean or lean,
felt I could do nothing wrong
now,
so probably later as well,
welfare wellness.

Neither my father,
mother,
or I
seemed particularly surprised
when I rose and fell
somewhere in-between
these two extremes,
as do we all
I suppose.

And yet I wonder
about my father’s hierarchical value structure,
placing perfection on Earth’s highest
biggest
thickest welfare state.

And remain silently awed
by my mother’s reverse-hierarchical terms
endearing depths of greatest compassion
for who is deeper
and thereby more robust
than whom.

I suppose this means something
about where sexuality conjoins
sensuality,

About triangular cognitive structures
amid diamond infolding co-relationships,
about 1’s
intersecting 0-Zones,
about light
foreshadowing dualdark reminders
of perfection,
about fullness of time
within timeless absence,
eternally co-arising.

Although,
neither Yang’s ominous
hierarchical value predictions
nor Yin’s generously interdependent
deep learning hopes,
sexual and sensual,
were all that helpful
for adolescent me,
struggling with spectral we.

Elder Journey’s Cooperative Request

The monthly lunch crowd
reinvented our Elder Journey Association
traveling together toward renewal,
resilient
restorative justice,
resonant co-redemption,
revival of reconnecting
through this Great ReTurning Communion.

Our Green Sanctuary Statement:

Love is always unfinished
Green cooperative health business,

Like Life and Hope’s potential integrity,
Living as One, at most, wealthy
by pregnantly listening Womb,

One Green Sanctuary
for future’s distant win/win healthy wealth
continues co-investing…

Cooperative Green Love
is always unfinished health business,

Like Life and Hope’s potential
resilient synergy
journeying hand in winning hand
with resonant nature-spirit integrity.

What we have together learned
of robust reviving communication
absorbs Judith Campbell’s suggestion,
“When your heart speaks,
take good notes.”

And we have listened for greener
more resonant expression,
reincarnation,
“When our heart sings together
we write healthiest choreography
for this sanctuary dance,
co-investing in yet further
younger media arts co-opportunities
of centering community,
resilient senior cooperative household communication
surrounded by healthy green outdoor education centers
for energy democratization,
value and disvalue decommodification,
transparent transport and vulnerable residential reco-feminization
of power
values
energy
for revolutionary cooperative ownership journeys.

We, in solidarity,
would be trans-generators of greening society
toward multiculturing health-wealth Futures.

We each, before we were born,
already experienced compassion
felt in tender embrace
of a nurture nutrition
communal communicating EarthMother
and Her Gaian NewBorn

Bonding our felt original ZeroZone womb,
warmly inviting
and nutritiously wet
Holonic Spirit,

Anima Mundi’s Elder RightBrain
universal ZeroSoul
uniting renewing experiences of EgoLeft
distinctly emerging identity
from undifferentiated and interdependent EarthWeb
of EcoRight
effluent Yin with affluent Yang
flow-strong healthy GreenWombed Habitat.

From such radically inclusive and cooperative origins,
We journey toward an extended family
global in our win/lose hurt
and either/or reductive sadness
to own ancient patriarchal revival opportunities
as both/and
Green/Red Gaian co-redemptive risks
cooperatively sponsored blood and water sacrifices
resonantly planted,
resiliently harvested.

For this Green and Blue and Red,
and all multicultures in-between,
Sanctuary journey,
we invite all Time,
all valuables
all health
all energy
all wealth
all invocations
all gentle compassion,

All co-investments
in always unfinished Love
for journeys into further
Green CoOperative Health Business.

Now, who brought dessert?

Greatest Story Never Told

This story remains unfinished
as do all the best tales told.
Yet I must warn you
it has a happy ending,
not dystopian,
although not a finished
political utopia,
Ever After LoveLife.

Where this story begins
remains a mystery,
like a definition for “Tao”
more obscure than refining Yang
with Yin sublime co-relationship,

Which is, and is not,
equivalent with white and black,
and all curious colors in-between
masculine and feminist,
left-brain dominant strength
and right-brain prominent flow;
liberties egalitarian and freedoms interdependent,
powers and passions,
climates and cultures,
natures and nurtures
secular and sacred,
ego- and eco-systemic
wealth as health,
love as life…

I believe
somehow
this unfinished end
revisits our Green Sanctuary origins,
Earth as Eden,
Humane life as divine love
where Gaia danced with interior/exterior humane voices
long before humanity was a tremor in Her womb
of left-brain dominant verbal becoming retold history.

Whether such a vast stage of DNA origin,
hoary with memoried and imagined Time,
affluently historical
and effluently cultural,
this is,
or hopes to one day become,
The Greatest Story Not Ever Told,
if only because we have been so Business As Usual
win-losing recycling spirals
conjoining Alphas and Omegas,
great transitional beginnings
with endings not yet visible,
or even vicariously heard,

Not ever completing
all Win/Win interdependent co-relationships
TaoTime invites
offers
with compassion,
gratitude,
curious courage,
transparent vulnerability.

But, you were asking about New London
in particular place and time,
a Connecticut town of about 30,000,
home of the Coast Guard
and Pfizer
and a Unitarian-Universalist Center
everybody knows as All Souls
and most every multicultural body repeats
their logo,
“Where all Souls are welcome.”

Strangely enough
I think the GrantWriter
was from out of town,
without any long-term relationships in New London
government
or business
or our eclectic religious sector.

The GrantWriter:

Such profound disconnection
feels uncomfortable
discomforting
not comfitting
inappropriate
for growing deep and wide compassion roots.

So, I did what I do,
I wrote an unfinishable proposal
about how to grow a resiliently healthy love life
in and with and for New London,
about why we each and all need a new win/win cooperative theory
and practice
for regenerative climate development;
so also against degenerative overheated
and frozen anti-health development.

Too much of my own learning experience
emphasized the sterile science
and dyspeptic un-communioned arts
of grief about lose/lose monoculturing climate terror trends,

So what would the opposite polycultural outcomes
of such environmental disaster feel like?
Look like?
Taste like?
Sound like?

How would we reattach to sacred gratitude
as a win/win species?
Now living in side-by-side autocratic/democratic silo communities
wrestling with win/lose economic capital-hoarding competition models
for natural and spiritual and financial survival.

Where are our active gratitude models
for win/win healthy wealth optimization?

One day
listening to Pamela Sparr,
not New London talent,
but encountered in an All Souls reading circle book,
Justice On Earth,
we cooperatively evolved five steps
Out of Our Silos and Selves:

1) Propose a bolder win/win,
left/right,
ego/eco-balancing
prophetic resilient image
of a mutually compassionate ecopolitics.

2) Develop communally incarnated courage
multicultural curiosity
capacity to listen
naturally left and spiritually right
ego-eco-theo-logically taoistic nutritional.

3) Look for win/win gratitude experiences
outside our side by side religious sanctuaries
and inside organic health farms
of resiliently ego-masculine
resonantly eco-feminist communication.

4) Engage with radical outdoor Earth voices
for interdependent co-passion
building up and out
and down and in
multicultural communion.

5) Increase win/win
polycultural gratitude
for health/wealth inspired
co-refining secular/sacred experience
of cognitive/emotive
culture/climate transformation.

 

Note:  First in a series of integral win/win cooperative health system proposals.

Bigger v Deeper Egos

The belief that we become healthier,
healed,
redeemed
through commitment to some power
bigger and higher than just ourselves
follows left-brain dominant teaching,
and appeals to patriarchal thirsts
for robust ego empowerment.

Right-brain prominent feelings
do not disagree with,
dissonantly conflict with,
this bigness metaphor
but monotheistic universalism is not right-brain resonant,
while depth is everything
everywhere
every interconnected potential Time
of radically profound interdependent Identity.

Ego identity
feels emerging from
and returning to
deep ecosystemic nutritional streams
of curiously submerged becoming
co-passionate together
as facets of one boundless
unfathomed ZeroZone
double-bound
bilateral win/win becoming whole
holy
holonic
synergetic
integral.

Big and from-on-high colonization
is never historically resilient,
is always unsustainable,
except when intended
and multiculturally experienced as creolization,
benign largess, invitation
from deep compassionate pockets
of resonantly sacred generosity.

Left-brain either-or thinking
about how to be part of bigger
universally monotheistic Power
can become confluent with right-brain both-and feeling
becoming more deeply etched
ego-identified faith in action
within eco-individuating awareness
of nature’s interaction,
deeply spiritual compassion.

Where left-brain egos long to be part of a higher power,
right-brain win/win prime
ego/eco-relationality
belongs immersed in reconnecting deeper co-passioning rivers
of healthy energy streams
flowing up from enlightening dual-dark Source,
sacred resources,
silent webs of becoming
deep wells of resilient resonant belonging.

PlayDate Victories

Parental labor days and nights,
memories and contemporary echoing traumas
of declaring Hippocratic Commitment victories,
“No one got much hurt today,”

“Non-violent communication” prevails,
verbally and non-verbally laborious,
locally and globally viral,
monoculturally and multiculturally,
on our best days,

But “not violent” is such a negative
empty
cold
humorless LeftBrain way
to say,
to communicate,
resiliently resonant communion’s
articulating
heart-felt possibilities.

We have hope and faith potentialities
for cooperative spirits of life and love,
As well as secular natures of competitively incorporated death
and corporate loss,

But only one ZeroZone uniting Holy Nature/Spirit,
not only co-invested in non-violent life and love,
but further committed to solidarity
of resilient uniting life as resonant universal love,

Where Fear-of and Anger-about
past lose/lose competitive trauma
cannot repeat their either/or
exclusive
devolutionary Names.

Cooperative Play Day

Within our UU extensive family,

When did universal salvation
become uniform non-redemption?

When did worshiping Earth’s Divinity
become celebrating humanity’s Humanism?

When did unitarian win/win webs
wombs
root systems
eggs
seeds
umbilical cords of compassion’s DNA nutrition,
living forests,
dynamic oceans,
multiculturing climates,
robust atmospheres,
harmonic communions
robust re-creation stories
become smug and self-satisfied win/lose evolution theories,
supported by side by side religious walls
of mutual theology-trumps-ecology exclusion
of right-brain felt inclusions?

When will we universal-leftbrain and rightbrain-unitarian nondually notice,
Yang with Yinclusive,
EgoPatriarch with EcoFeminist appreciate,
that “ecological exclusion”,
like “military cognitive/emotive win/win intelligence”
is an extended anti-family oxymoron?
Both left-brain dissonant
and right-brain longing for resilient resonance.

When do we remember
to celebrate competitive win/lose Labor Day
by growing
and demarginalizing
cooperative win/win Play Day?

Resonant Health Resilience

I’m not against left-brain
right-wing dominance
so much as I am for
right-brain
left-wing prominently appreciating
depreciating left-brain
right-wing dominant economics
and political disempowerment
of Earth’s vital climate health,
collectively and individually,
globally and locally,
exponentially and intimately
transparent and vulnerable
communal relationship.

I’m certainly not against optimizing resilient health.
And, I am also for optimizing resonant integral beauty
with feeling multicultural trust,
cooperative win/win beauty standards for choice making
familiar with both/and co-passioning solidarity
replacing relentless stress
out-lining/in-lining a full spectrum of resilient health awareness.

I am not against global thinkingism
and self-satisfaction;
But I am also for local acting,
reflecting,
communing,
win/win prioritizing,
discussion and dialogue
with intent to cooperatively implement
health-wealth journeys
bicamerally informed
by resiliently resonant truth/beauty changes
into commonly-held wisdom economies,
beauty ecologies,
healthy integrity.

I am not against pathological
absence of rational solidarity;
I am for healthy purpose,
wealthy meaning,
communion experience,
local planning and implementing
global compassion.

I’m not against civilian civility;
But I’m much more impassioned
inspired by a global through local society
of polycultural wealth through health solidarity.
