Growing Competing Anxieties

What is the best available treatment
for cancerous climates of anxiety?

Well,
imagine you were born in a USA
time and place
when we knew only one retributive model of justice,
both internal theological punishment for being merely mortal
and external anti-ecological.

Now imagine you live in a Win/Win
time and place
wherein Restorative Justice Peace Warriors
are also PermaCulturing Designers
of natural landscapes,
internal and external,
and spiritual-experiential-sensory climates,
internal and external,
nondually co-arising.

Best still-available long-term therapies
for growing Wonder and Awe
and Grace and Good Karma Climates,
long-term restorative health co-designers,
for democratic regenerative polyculturing outcome optimization
WinWin planning and strategics and praxis,
and not so much merely against
Republican DeGenerative MonoCultural Income Hoarding for Plutocrats,
dissonance,
disarray,
dismay,
decaying Win/Lose
toward Lose/Lose (0)Soul Trends,
4D RealTime double-binding nihilistic
denialism of Win/Win ego/ecotherapeutic
sacred/secular co-equivalence,
cosmic cosmological co-incidence.

Original Intents and Purposes

Original New Yorker Intents and Purposes

So who did you expect
to actually elect,
Vandana Shiva?

from Uniting Constitutions of MotherTrees

Tribes and groves
grow forests together
forming more therapeutically perfect Unions
of unity yin-flowing integrity,
not quite so much uniformity
of Yang’s violating offensive strengths
for deductively commodifying
financial quantities of economic justice
as real estates for all,
yet blind to yin’s qualities
of restorative
ecotherapeutic mercy for our best-intending selves
living here together
as one MotherTree
reconstituting Tribes
for regenerative
Golden Natural Rule
outcomes.

Natural rules
are also sacred therapies
with collateral intent
toward investing in general Welfare
of We the People
on our one Planet
with our Plants
for mutual loving predation of Yang
and matriarchal-yin beloved prey
victims
our shamed and blamed criminalizations
and marginalizations,
boundary issues of being in wrong places
with non-therapeutic intent
during bad Apple times,
when this most perfect EarthTribe Welfare
encounters climates of pathological risk.

Those who become citizens
of UnitingStated democracy
are born residents of Earth’s MotherTree CoOperative
committed to uphold this uniting general and more perfect Welfare
of individuals within ecotherapeutic families,
of families within EarthTribe Constituted First Native Nations,
for this Nation of and for democratic health care
giving therapeutically forward
toward future EarthTribe ReGenerations
and health care receiving restoring justice backward
since (0)-Soul
WinWin Space with Time
began our shared Welfare dream
of restorative ego/eco-therapeutic justice,
mutual mercies of noticing
who is upholding our more perfect healthcare Welfare,
and who is more like holding it up
like NRA evangelizers
standing fascist and allegedly saluting
flagpoles of fake plutocratic patriotism
and fake news of competition’s superiority for marketing purposes
and fake therapeutic constitutional intent.

Summary of Amendments
regarding self-impeaching anti-patriotic free speech
and behaviors
and grab and assault word choices toward further violence:

If the proposed public sector administrator
cannot run on a therapeutic record of cooperative ownership
and democratically evolving development
committed to clear health care giving and ecotherapeutic receiving

And if
instead defines our proposed future public administration
as against Whatever health care and receiving laws
and restorative justice rules
currently in ego- and eco-therapeutic place,
as being mostly against the Opposition’s Whatever here
as against the Opposition’s Whatever there,
without capacity to say or behave
as one might expect of a mature healthy ecotherapist
familiar with restorative justice
as therapeutically active hope
for our more perfect generic Welfare
as families
and communities
and as a nation
within a community of nations,

Then,
please,
with future 2020 perfect revisioning opportunities
just around our three year corner,
let us look very much
in exactly the opposite
optimal yin-flowing yang dipolar strengthening direction
for optimizing positive and therapeutic restorations
of health care,
thanksgiving as grace-receiving.

We’re all on a more perfectly uniting EarthTribe
revolutionary resurrection
of reforesting Paradise direction,
but probably best not to put the white guy with the Presidential erection
right there in the fake news director chair,
or twittering toilet
for that matter.

Notes:
Talk about the shame of Rome
burning while Caesar played with his
fiddle!
What about the blame of playing Trump
to inflame the entire planet
while playing with his
twitter messages?
Who let that happen?

It wasn’t the Council of MotherTrees,
I can tell you that for sure.
We have not yet been re-enfranchised,
given free-and-equal voice.

I think he learned his leadership skills
from New York’s taxi drivers.
But don’t blame them,
this was certainly not their original intent.

Waking Up Despair

Waking up to despair,
sadness,
bone-tired at war with a beeping alarm clock,
an alarming list of immediately urgent responsibilities
without an opportunity in sight,
or at least not this first despairing fright,
at end of night.

If this sounds familiar
as at least your normal Monday through Friday,
you probably need a better way toward bed
the night before.

Most likely, earlier.

But also,
even for many with mindfulness practices,
disciplines
with their own short and long-term rewards
for both natural and spiritual health,
remembering gratitude
is our interior face
of grace’s exterior face,
or karma’s exterior influences,
or love’s potential winners winning
full circle in theory,
yet too anemic during this dreaded alarm clock time.

If yours is solely a morning contemplative practice,
after you wave the kids off to school,
after the gym or the run,
after the personal hygiene,
it is already too late
to optimize your opportunity
to wake up with least claustrophobic despair
and most expansive hope
building toward faith
that this day just might be even better
than yesterday,
as utterly remarkable as yesterday appeared
as you were mindfully drifting off to sleep
perhaps even before greeting GrandMother Moon’s
new through full repeat performances.

She’ll be here all week,
visible and sometimes invisible,
guarding your restorative rights and responsibilities
toward regenerating tomorrow’s realistic gratitude
for renewed opportunities
to brush your teeth,
and greet each child and significant other,
to notice if these wake with a smile
toward this day,
or with a scowl
for lack of sleep
or a good dream interrupted,
and recognizing how this is two ways
of saying one important not yet thing
which can build toward despair,
and further lack of more therapeutic dreams.

It is an important personal and also political choice
to prepare for sleep
repairing for tomorrow’s grace
or in dread against our memories of grace’s lack,
apparent absence,
persistently stuck issues
too overwhelming to think or feel our way out of,
through,
beyond.

These are important items for evening contemplation too.
But, when I am making my lists,
I start with minuses,
drift off counting my appositional pluses.
They are both there
within us
if we can choose restorative faith
after our lights turn out.

In this sense
we can choose our karma,
our awareness of positive and negative grace.
Love’s tones of restorative therapy
and retributive punishment,
if not yet quite overwhelming gratitude,
also not awakening to further despair
from chronic days of self with other abuse and neglect.

I continue having a dream
that the night everyone in military-industrialized cultures
drifts off feeling graced with opportunities
to become and do every cooperative thing we can
to guarantee Earth’s future of healthy exterior climates,
that is the night before our first morning
arising together
without overwhelming internal competing despairs.

Faith that this restorative therapeutic day
could unfold no less grand
than this dream we shared
our polypathic
demilitarizing
dis-industrializing
less exhausting night before.

Threatened Organic Economies

“No federal agency should ever…declare war on any sector of our economy”

says EPA chief Scott Pruitt.

I wonder how uncomfortable Secretaries and Parents of Health and Human Services could be

with any Protection Agency

declaring war on all sectors of our human health ecology.

Healthy Attitudes

I suspect what most of us want from our families
and communities
has something to do with living as healthy as possible
for as long as possible,
sustainably,
not just through our own lifetimes
but throughout multigenerational lifelines
from past through future
health regenerators
of nutritional wealth maintainability.

These are families
and communities
breeding loyalty
and gratitude,
positive attitude
although our local Boards of Education
(and don’t even think about federal departments
of competitive miseducation)
seem to not so much cooperatively
and economically
and ecologically
think this through together
as ways and means
for deep mutual gratitude learning,
listening,
speaking and feeling with Earth honoring integrity,
whether you discover this as sacred ecology
or merely secular cooperative economic matriarchal history,
depends on whether you go to Religious High
or Secular Humanist Public High
and deep
and widely grateful
for public patriotic
and domestic sacred matriotic
learning,
healing,
ego with eco-integrity
for Left with Right mutual gratitude,
healthy attitude.

The THC Ordinance

I am fairly new to this Norwick community.
If I recall correctly
we have about forty thousand households here
where the Connecticut River
conjoins the Mohegan and Iroquois Rivers;
originally deep rich virgin eco-forest harmonic.

So when I interviewed the Mayor,
I asked him why he wrote
the Norwick THC Family-Friendly Ordinance?
This came from nowhere.
No one from the local Democratic Party Committee
had mentioned we should soon expect to look
in this ecopolitical direction.

“Well,
the more active committee members tend to put their wallets
where their mouths and noses are currently ingesting,
if you follow?”

OK, so you were all in this together
and it didn’t occur to any of you
this might induce a national spotlight?

“No,
we thought the Norwick Ban on Alcohol Sales
to Those Under the Age of SixtyFive
would probably do that.
The THC Family-Friendly Ordinance,
What’s so unusual
about family-friendly ecopolitics?”

Well I think a critical question
from massive media markets
is where is your well researched positive outcome evidence
that THC is more family friendly
than is depressive alcohol?

“Have you tried both?”

Have you?

“OK, we can do this the long way.
If you have done both, and have a family,
then that is your primary evidence.
If you have only done THC,
then you probably wouldn’t have asked that question
and you would be wondering,
as am I,
why this is not well-reported
and academically taught
and therapeutically resourced
and economically developed
in other eco-friendly centers,
like your THC Friendly ego-eco SelfIdentity
of BiCameral Consciousness.
But, if you have only tried alcohol,
then your evidence
may be in damage to your depressed family relationships.
Now imagine only grandpas and grandmas
controlling who gets the booze in family markets,
and who does not
because young fools will drink and drive
when they can’t even balance on a bicycle!
And, if you have tried neither,
then I guess your best evidence
is to come to a Democratic Town Committee Meeting,
over at the Senior Center,
for lunch
and we’ll give ’em both a try,
but consecutively, never simultaneously,
while watching redundant Washington afternoon debates
on immigration
and taxation
and climate health v pathology
and health care giving and receiving
to see and hear what you suspect
they were drinking and not smoking
during their patriotic red meat power lunches.”

No, thanks.
You had me with the first option.

“That so.
So why did you bother to ask?”

Because that’s what I wanted to know?

“You wanted to know why we passed a THC-Friendly ordinance
yet didn’t think this was even controversial
from a public health and safety perspective?”

Well yes,
but I’m also wondering why there wasn’t even any Republican opposition.

“You’re new here,
aren’t you?”

I’ll concede that question.
So how’s it going so far?

“Well,
the police and the courts and lawyers
and maybe even the Emergency Wing
at the hospital,
and the ambulance drivers and EMTs
are feelin’ kinda bored and left behind.
Playin’ a lot of cards
and not generating the fees and fines
and insurance reimbursements
and fake non-profit donations
to the Punishing Chambers of Political Commerce.”

That doesn’t sound encouraging.

“On the other hand
the Senior Centers are filled with smokey stories about,
well…
it’s often difficult to say,
but certainly happy about WinWin nutritional outcomes,
so we don’t worry a whole lot
about the synergetic details.”

Anyone else doing better?

“Mainly the poor and suffering,
single-parent low-income households,
homeless and hungry and at-risk
building cooperatively-owned residences
and salvage
and entertainment
and renewable energy industries,
producing song and dance and rhythm
and story telling
and creation parable swelling
street opera sectors
of and for ecopolitical cooperative outcomes.
These are all deeper and wider and probably higher
than healthcare giving and receiving
prior to unanimous Town Council passage.”

So what are your thoughts
about the remaining under-employed,
restorative justice now overwhelming retributive justice,
for our medical and legal pathologist depression problems?

“We were thinking of Anger Management
ego-eco therapeutic classes
through Left and Right
as Yang and Yin
co-arising glasses.”

I worry I may know what that means.

“The reforesting police are supervising and supporting
growth of neighborhood permacultural parks and gardens.
They are also hosting organic interior and exterior wu-wei design classes,
for optimizing both ego and ecotherapies,
yoga and chi gong classes too,
some held at the schools,
from preschool through Norwick High,
and our community college and the technical high school,
and some of the Sabbath and Sunday Schools.
We now have an herbalist division
over at the hospital
that seems to pick up the slack
for their Emergency staff.
And the ambulances transport more plants than people,
seeds,
small fruit trees
for our edible reforesting projects.
It’s called finding the economic cooperative WinWin solution
within the politically bicameral competing Either/Or problem.”

How do these outcomes look for replication elsewhere?

“That would be a better question to ask elsewhere.”

So that’s how you want to end this interview,
with criticizing my culminating question?

“Sorry.
That is an excellent question,
not that you asked for my opinion,
but one I cannot answer
as I am not elsewhere
at the moment.”

Anything else I should have asked?

“Do I really want to write about
why the Mayor wrote
this Norwick THC-Friendly Ordinance?”

Oh, I did ask that question.

“And what did you hear?”

Maybe yes, LeftYang patriarchal;
Maybe notnot doublebinding no
to Lose wealth now
and Lose health later
Right matriarchal Yin.

“Hmmm…
Just enough to restore more vulnerable Tipping Points
of re-acclimating faith
in MotherEarth’s original Green Estates
for reforesting THC-DNA-RNA extended family friendly fractal alliances.”

Couldn’t have written it better myself.

Evening Rainsong

Alone again
yet evening rain falls
cooling fresh breeze voices
anxious for everything,
angry about nothing.

Nothing to do about rain falling
as sure as gravity
of dripping issues
landing in my lap,
splattering naked children’s sleepy heads
and innocent soft shoulders.

Into each life…
Yes,
yet eventide rains inside voices
wet down dwindling life
of tiring consciousness.

If I could not read or write or speak
who would I sing with in new found leisure?
Scattered lyrical thoughts
of painful rain
for evening’s loss of light,
and dawn’s dew drop evaporations
raising praise for might
of rain rising up yet again
to grace some other’s night.

We each sing with rain dying alone,
a humanic nature feeling trapped
alien emigrant returning home
to Earth where all creations fail and fall
to rise again singing through new voices
and hues,
spectral rhythmic
dances of songs and cries
each our lived together owned,
rising up new throated sounds
disintegrated symphonies
of song sung out
toward tomorrow’s rain clouds
capturing moist radiant waves,
wet sounds of song
well-lived yet bound.

I hear too complex songs for living,
polyphonic evening rains
falling down alone
to rise again belonging songs
evaporating praise,
leaking radiance
gathering together.

Into and through each flowing melody
of rebaptising life
dirged this night alone
yet heard as well-sung rain forever.
