Attachments and Aversions

I wonder if
what Buddhist classic meditation teachings
refer to as “attachments”
and “aversions,”
a Western medical doctor
might label with different words,
such as addiction
and dissociative diversions.

In both frames
negative illusions may be recognized
and appreciated
as deep opportunities to learn;

Negative delusions are not accurately cognized
and are depreciated
as too risky
not to repress
and hide
from any therapeutic
transporting
transparent (not self-shaming)
and vulnerable (not self-blaming)
communication
with our contemplative EgoTherapist within
and our medical-model EcoTherapists without.

Positive illusions,
attachments and/or addictions,
may be accurately cognized
as sensory attractions,

Whether smells and/or tastes,
touch and/or feelings,
sight and/or sound,
eco-reception and/or mind/body communication,
exterior and/or interior,

May have potential
to therapeutically transport
away from addiction
and toward less ego-obsessive attraction,
and away from self-serving,
potentially predative, attractions
to positive sensory pleasure,
cooperatively intended
hoped
faithed
loved,
eco-politically
and personally
and bilaterally
and bicamerally healthy wealth
of becoming completely satisfied
sufficient
simple
centered in HereLeftYangSpace/NowRightYinternalTime
and in past sensory satisfying memories
and in future images
imagination of pleasures
climatically encompassing
all of the above.

Addiction to cooperative multicultural
multigenerational
regenerational
and bicameral
bilateral peak sensory experiences
could be a healthier opportunity
than addictions to competitive ego-monoculturing
and mono-atheistic
and autonomous predator/prey
sensory risk ambivalence

Where things don’t necessarily smell
or taste inviting,
don’t necessarily feel grateful to touch
or feel inside my mindbody,
don’t necessarily transcendently transport
when compromised win/lose beauty seen
and ambiguously uninviting truth heard,
falling short of healthy co-addiction
to Earth’s vast multicolored wealth
of sensory ultra-nonviolent
compassionate
EarthTribe Yintegrity.

Taoist Skills

 

Yin listens for baseline safety,
absence of aggression,

While Yang speaks up
and out
for social
political
economic significance
without tainted infamy;
saintly synergetic
means not sinnerly energetic.

Yet ego safety
rests more likely yin flowing
in our autonomous insignificance
through resonant democratic choice-making
co-passionate Yang political health
economic wealth
worshiping sacred transcendence
of felt and needed EarthMother
and Her neighborly starlight
regenerating baseline health as safety.

Holy Wind

These are post-revolutionary gay ’20s,
without pre-revolutionary SpeakEasies,
replaced with ListenHard
to global climates of LeftBrain dominant despair.

Margaret Meade encourages
invites
urges small winds
assembled in privatized circles,
yet still dreaming of love’s great evolving liberty,
winning healthy democracy
to win wealthy economies
to win resilient ecology
to win resonant polypathic theology,

To remember
small compassioned groups
are the only Holy Winds
to ever have started cultural revolutions
more matriarchal,
less patriarchal,
more yin,
less yang,
more LeftWind sacred,
less RightStorm secularized
militarism
corporate uber-rights of egocentric personism,
colonialism,
monoculturalism,
totalitarianism,
racism,
straightism,
anthro-supremacism,
UnHoly EarthRage nihilism.

And so our children led us out
from our WarmBreeze Sanctuary,
All Souls monotheistic
toward Republican Party Leadership Committees,

All Souls polytheistic toward Green Party Conclaves
for win/win economic/ecological sacred new deals,

All Souls atheistic
synergizing local Democratic Party Counsels,
conventions for green democratic inventions
in and for and of healthiest,
most resonant and resilient,
dipolar co-arising wealth,

All Souls agnostic creolizing Libertarian Party compassion
for those within segregated ideological atmospheres,
too removed from personal-political-economic-ecological experience,
longing to be free as Holy
WindStorms
restoring peace as EarthWind Justice
renaturing trusted warm atmospheric experience
heart-felt
as well as mind-thought.

Within these several atmospheric dialogues
each Party noticed our mutual self-knowing interests
in cooperative green health care,
given as received co-passions
exhaled as inhaled,

But now more Sacred Wind of revolution
restoration
regeneration
reweaving
restructuring
more coperative democratic wealth
of Holy Wind health,

Robust
as resonant
as resilient
brilliant polypathic
polyphonic
bicameral bi-polynomial
bi-lateral thinking/feeling Revolution WindStorms

In compassionate democratic delight
yet conserving liberal futures
in more warmly nurtured children,
still wet-wombed Holistic Occupiers
Earth-worshiping WindStorm
resolutions,

Supported win/win consensus
by all leadership Parties,
and it began right here
in this All Souls Holy Climate

Listening out and down into these revolutionary gay ’20s,
without Green SpeakEasies as yet
but still non-violently co-invested in ListenHard Parties
to global climates of RightBrain ecofeminist
indigenous Holy Wind,
still singing through one small ultra-violet voice.

 

Note: Holy Wind is a left-brain dominant anglicization of the Navaho vocalization for “atmosphere” and “dynamic climate change.”

Universal-Unitarian Trinity of Zero

Atheism,
for a Taoist
and for U-Us
and Zeroists,
and Not ZeroSumists,
and Positive ZeroZone Therapists,
is synonymous with Agnosticism
and maybe Gnostic BiCameral Consciousness.

Healthy skeptics,
but not pessimists,
Agnostics understand how win/lose leftbrain either/or dominant
intelligent people
confuse Atheism with AntiTheism
but do not internally suffer from these competing
and ambivalent
anxious
depressing confusions.

For both a Taoist philosopher-writer-composer-musician-muse
and a UU multicultural Truth/Power lover,
it feels unbalanced to be open only to appreciating Universal Theists
and closed to the unitarian
interdependently egalitarian AntiTheists among us,
all potential allies along life’s loving theological
ecologically co-relational journey

Just as it is Left with Right hemisphere wrong, both thought and felt,
to accept a culturally reinforced Thesis
but not a multiculturally contextual
appositional
compare and contrast AntiThesis,
like YangStrength with YinFlow,
like Left with Right bilateral unwinged communion,
like Outside with Inside climate solidarity,
like Left Privilege with or against Dark Fragility,
like Elite cooperatively with
or competitively against NonElite,
like Win/Win with Lose/Lose spectral re/de-generativity,
like Ego WealthyIdentity with and against EcoSystemic Healthy Individuation…

Between internal MonoTheistic Spirit
and external AntiTheistic Nature
lies a multicultural pandemic of economic
investing/divesting theologies

Our subjective
and objectively felt personal knowledge
win/lose evolves,
lose/lose revolves,
win/win resolves

I’ve noticed, so far,
along my UU-Taoist journey:
PolyTheism
PanTheism
Zeroism
PanEnthemematic Communionism
MultiCultural Win/Win ReGenerativism
Health/Wealth Nature/Spirit CoOperativism,
sadly, Win/Lose Capitalism

And have no doubt
we will, across eternal time
and timeless space
know and grow
unknown and despised and revised
many more variations
on this Yang/Yin
Thesis/AntiThesis
EgalitarianUniverse Rights / InterdependentUnity Responsibilities
LeftBrain Dominant / RightBrain Prominent
WarmThoughts with FluidFeelings
dipolar co-arising
Ego-Theo-Eco-triumvirate
trinitarian without capital
heady
egotistic
narcissistic over-investment in Trumpistic Triumphalism
of leftbrain autonomous illusion

Truth and Beauty and Trust
actively looking for
easier not not co-passion themes
of past faith
with future hope
for today’s sufficient love.

WombManish Conclusions

I would feel our way
toward green restoring justice Earth

Designing integral peace
through Default Mediating Networks
remediating LeftBrain dominant
win/lose thoughts
sniffing toward retribution
before settling into stagnant
self-satisfied
smug silence,
substituting for cooperatively restoring peace.

My resolution opportunities
are as HUGE as my cognitive dissonance stuckness,

What competitive difference could I possibly not make,
pre-structure,
autonomously build,
perennially fight for
and against?

Bicameral Taoists assume
presume
consume
either/or intellectual
and both/and moral commitment,
thought, yet felt,
natural, yet spiritual,
ecological, yet theological,
polypathic, yet polyphonically robust,
most viralish resilient, when also virtuously resonant.

My deep twinned
twining
inter-regenerational natural spirit
demands win/win modeled responses
profoundly left/right bilaterally intersectional.

I find myself
a retributive justice victim
while planning to become
a restorative peace advocate.

My ego has problems
our ecosystem has pathology;
My egosystem finds warm wet wombed resolutions
our economic re-creations would win/win resolve.

My litany of personal care
sacred vocations
siloed intentions
each day
grows longer than
all my competing days
and cooperatively-held nights.

My rainbow communion
has a deliberate monocultural divestment cause,
shaped by centuries of left-brain patriarchal extraction
benefiting producers with greatest capital resources
for purchasing further empowerment.

This is ego-centrism
narcissism
denialism
fundamentalism
dualism
nihilism defined by alienated Other,
and capitalism refined by supremacist We.

My litany of dying places,
formerly sacred spaces,
now objectively and subjectively less healthy wealthed,
less integral,
more win/lose evolving
toward lose/lose devolution,
combine to predict climate failure,
within
as without,
ego-unhealthy
as eco-unwealthy.

I travel deeply within
uncovering my own complicit
explicit win/lose structures
of left-brain over-power,
self-authorization,
competitive organization
right-brain abusive
and degeneratively fragmenting EarthSoul
within without,
universally unitarian.

With courage
and curiosity
and more cooperative conviction
and commitment to interdependent dignity
equality
multicultural intersectionality,
I remain invincibly invisible
united within
and whereby
Energy’s vast universal democracy.

The 2020 Restorative Justice Proposal

It may have been the WiseElders Circle
that commissioned the GrantWriter’s first proposal.
Yet others claim it was the Young Adults,
And Pfizer prescribes New London’s original health proposal
came from their own blood stream advocates,
And the Coast Guard Academy remembers an early defensive proposal
to heal and protect local drinking waters
going more cooperatively coastal.
But, to each and all,
the GrantWriter responded,
as I recall renewing atmosphere:
Resiliently successful co-investment proposals
cannot be written in just one academic
unfelt Voice
of monotheistic
monocultural
monopolistic choice.
So each congregation,
organization,
affiliation
sent a delegation of four
to a multi-party convention.
Each participant was a member
of the Green
and/or Libertarian
and/or Democratic
and/or Republican MultiParty,
or agreed to roleplay warm familiarity
with one of these four primal platforms
investing primary priorities
in economically cooperative campaigns
and politically therapeutic co-investment intentions
not aggressively looking for full-out contention
to attract mediattention,
unmediated chronic tension.
Instead of debates
within and between these four Parties,
the GrantWriter invited small groups of four
to take turns listening
to repeated questioning,
“Who are we most longing to become?”
Dialogue ensued
not encouraged to research every naked win/lose competitive difference;
But, instead,
to capitalize win/win cooperative opportunities
to include highest priorities
as those voiced by all four health/wealth co-arising Party voices.
The GrantWriter notes:
Dear New London mayoral candidates
for all four Parties on our 2020 ReVision ballot,
The diverse congregations of New London
invite you to attend our Cooperative Dialogue Convention;
Not to speak,
but to listen,
as each small group reports out their longings,
findings,
truths with win/win consequences,
What each of us most longs to co-invest
to cooperate
to come and go viral
across all cultures
climates
and living systems,
Acts of cooperative compassion
for healing individual residents,
families and taxpaying households,
and untaxed community service properties,
communities of co-investment,
healthier resonant climates
and wealthier resilient multicultures.
Think of it as, for you, our guests, a silent auction
where everybody wins
because no one’s health is down and out
for highest bid.
Feel free to take pictures
and copious notes.

Sacred Reconstructions

I was waiting for my discussion circle to show up,
about to conclude our reading of “Sacred Instructions”

When I saw a list above the server
in the library of Unitarian-Universalist wisdom,
Ten Things to Remember:

The past can’t be changed.

Opinions don’t define your reality.

Everyone’s journey is different.

Judgments are not about you.

Overthinking will lead to sadness

Happiness is found within.

Your thoughts affect your mood.

Smiles are contagious.

Kindness is free.

It’s OK to let go and move on.
In my Taoist way,
I took notes,
while transliterating the yin side:

The past can’t be changed.
But can it be redeemed?

Opinions don’t define your reality.
But feelings do.

Everyone’s journey is different.
So your journey is not replaceable.

Judgments are not about you.
They are about us using punishing weapons
before trying empathic, and diplomatic, listening tools.

Overthinking will lead to sadness,
and bureaucracy.
But under-feeling will not lead to gladness,
or democracy.

Happiness is found within.
While sadness remains without;
and both are found in felt conversation
of climates within
and without.

Your thoughts affect your mood.
Your climate effects your feelings
about what you can and cannot do
about your mood.

Smiles are contagious.
So are frowns.

Kindness is free.
Meanness is prohibitively expensive.

It’s OK to let go and move on.
It’s also OK to hang and move in
to win/win hopes
and move through mutual detachment issues,
histories more curiously reattaching together
through mature listening skills.

Resilient Health Care Systems

Competitive economic experience
breeds business as usual
capital-growing cultures
with a special preference historical
for white privilege patriarchal
remembering and designing
left-brain dominant educational systems.

Cooperative ecological economies
breed more organic networks
of permacultural health
and nutrition
and communication experience,
with a special historical preference
for ecofeminist Earth-empowered
deep learning
listening
noticing prime primal attachment relationships
between internal ego-
and external eco-
systemic balance,
harmony,
interdependent equity,

RightBrain HealthWealth Prominent ,
liberal leftwing progressive,
freedom from isolated loneliness,
depression,
repression,
suppression,
AND
LeftBrain WealthHealth Dominant,
conservative rightwing defensive,
freedom to impressively

nutritiously thrive

without eating the less brilliantly aristocratic help

and remembering to at least say
Please and Thank You and You Are Welcome,
is where civil rights end
and co-responsively begin.

The NonTaoist Dialogue

It was observed
among NonTaoist elders,
without formal resolution,

It is past virtuous recycling time
to actively hope future EarthTribe generations
will become smaller
and live more simply
or not live at all.

So what, then,
is left for ego memories to future heal,
to influence in some positively therapeutic way?
What success could remain
when wealth of quantitative healthy generations
must compete ever more relentlessly
against an angry and revengeful Mother Nature
only to die off into extinction
more slowly?

WiseElders note
no need for egocentric immortality
of humane and sacred nature,
yet our ecocentric cooperative successes
become contagious multiculturing conversations,
healing as we dance between
letting go of wealth-aggressive capitalism
to grab hold of health-assertive capitalization,
more cooperative co-investments
across multi-generations of memory,
regenerative images
recreating future generations,
smaller and cooperatively health/wealth wiser
in some mysteriously perennial nature/spirit
dipolar
co-arising
cooperatively self-governing
economic and political
psychological and neurological
unitarian, but not monoculturally uniform,
polypathic/polyphonic Way

We concluded
this NonTaoist elders dialogue
without formal universal-health/unitarian-wealth
cooperative win/win
sweet-spot resolutions,
yet also without further feeding
raw-spot multi-degenerational divested
patriarchally competitive
fragmenting
lack of sufficient integral/spiritual/natural ecosystemic wisdom
to share with both past and future cooperative regenerations,
regardless of size or time,
gender or age

But not at all regardless
of viciously competitive capitalism
or virtuously cooperative capitalization.

Bank in Trust CoInvestors

In cooperative detective work,
including Earth scientific research,
we are told to follow the money
much more often
than feeling invited
to follow the nutritional health investors
and the toxic pathology attackers

Whether our trail is a criminal
or political
economic impassioned journey
of discovery.

In healing arts and role play,
we are more often invited
to find nutritional root systems
consuming nutrients
to support an organic win/win ego-system
within Earth’s ecosystemic web
of original polyculturing health intention.

Either our technological win/lose economy
or an alternative ecological win/win evolutionary model
begins with all consuming positive creation values
to recreate healthy vocations
and climax each season of co-arising attachment
each co-acclimating day
and each market quarterly report

Earth’s internal holistic win/win production pattern
and our corresponding nutrition nurturing rhythms
are framed as positive co-relationship,
ego/eco-systemic co-acclimation
of long-term health/wealth trends

Within Earth’s external multiculturing ages
of slow-grown
cyclical
and re-cyclical
spiraling open systemic
polyculturing wealth development
designed to serve future consumer/producer balancers
of optimal nutrient-harmonic values,

From consumer wealth
of Earth-centric cravings
through producer health
of bilaterally informed
cooperative ego-centric conservation conversations

Win/Win dipolar co-arising positive value communication networks,
garden spaces for sacred vocations,
organic family farms,
eco-villages,
global multicultural communities
enjoy cultures of win/win ThereThen/HereNow health intention,
cooperatively owned
and eco/ego-managed.

To cynically choose, instead,
to worship our Western white male privileged
leftbrain dominant
military-industrial
anti-democratic capital monopoly,

To prefer, instead,
win/lose anti-revolutionary market games
of war
and Attachment Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
and Lazy-X Either/Or thinking
and win/lose feeling fundamentalistic
anti-mystic undetectived rage,
feels increasingly climate threatening
for wealthy win/win nutritional extended-family values.

Legal win/lose punishing governing structures
and capital-win/lose investment networks
together reinforce deconstruction
of organically cooperative networks
recomposing traditional win/win evolutionary values
not inviting overpowering ecopolitical monocultures
of climate pathology denialism,
industrial over-consumer-induced blindness,
dispirited senselessness,
neurologically disconnected genocide

In a technological
industrial monoculturing patriarchal system,
root democratic consumers
become replaceable tools
disposable win/lose-acclimated under-achievers
in what might have been a positive value-rooted
secular consumer/sacred producer
ego/eco-passionate win/win cooperative
both healthy and wealthy
nurturing
empowering
ecological
economic root organic nutritional systems
of polyculturing wellness researched
slow-grown
just right activity

Left/Right harmonically bilateral
bicameral
binomial networking ego/eco-systemic detective work
living win/win within a universal geosystemic spacetime
of four-season cosmic spiraling co-induced/deduced reality.

Polynomial systems become polyphonic detective operations
