Natural Tea Intelligence

“Nature yields to artifice,
not artifice to nature.”
Iain McGilchrist

Winning yields to lost and last identity,
not ego-loss to healthier winnings,
more ecosystemically robust.

LeftWing values for transparent
inclusive
democratic rights
more than royalistic wrongs,
yield to RightWing
nationalistic
white supremacy,
not artifice to integrity
of healthy climax powers.

Integrity yields to dualistic mendacity,
not artifice to InTegriTea,
seasoned by and with Earth
Mothering experience,
memory,
longing,
promise,
passion…

Embracing compassion yields to anthro-hubris snarcyschism,
Win/Win gives out to Lose-society/Lose-individual
divided cynicism,
not Lose/Lose mendacity
found in TegriTerrestrial Tea.

Drinking inTegri Tea
is a wonder spatial
awesomely timeless temporal
way to set aside sufficient Right
over not enough Left time
to communion within
and out our perpetually migrant sensual selves.

When I drink in TegriTea,
I only drink ego’s eco-integrity.

I don’t need to think
about tomorrow’s objectives
but also feel with fellow-migrant in TegriTea subjective
workers yielding to co-players,
mentors yeilding emotive facilitators
of compassioned communication.

I can stop all my alien divestments
while I drink in TegriTea.

When ego stops disembodied abstractions,
I can double-bind eco-attending
in natural/spiritual TegriTea.

There and here
only InTegriTea’s vast watering potential.

Here embodied
and Now timelessly temporal
is only we/me
in TegriTea
co-passionate inspiraling

Between me
and Inte-gritty
natural/spiritual
outside/inside connection,
re-connecting soil and soul.

I don’t want or need a cell phone
or computer
or even language
to watch and listen in TegriTea’s communion.

In RightWing dominant fact,
because I’m not emotionally speaking,
I can wealthier track
within this co-passioning in TegriTea

Ego breathes in,
I am aware inTegriTea’s fragrance
is here,
Ego is aware
my RightWing dominated body
smells in TegriTea feeling
and I’m eco-aware
that passion’s passing InTegriTea
grows healthiest
in resilient HereEmbodied
Now in TegriTea.

“Drink in TegriTea!”
invites a ZeroSoul Zen command
to bring me back
to our true
and trusted EarthMother wounded womb.

Don’t just think about and around
emotionally intelligent communion.

Be Here embodied
Now minded,
climate united in TegriTea.

I am trusting
this vortex time is by climate invitation
and not by paranoid
absence of co-present passion.

I am not yet a spiraling shadow;
I am embodied health
in TegraNation process,
and Earth outside knows
and inside feels
rations and reasons,
loves and passions

This Here/Now
a bilateral vortex in TegriTea’s cup,
deep and yet wide
yang and yet yin binomially stretched out
and down,
north
and south,
west
and east,
right
and left out
and in my tea-washed
tea-fueled
tea-nourished
tea-nurtured
in TegriTerrain co-passion,
spatial spiraling Wonder
returning hiccup in timeless Awe.

LeftWing green nature tea
yields reluctantly
to RightWing disembodied
spiritualized fake-zeal,
not RightWing unhealthy secular artifice
to LeftWing sacred health,
liberally sacred loving
liberate ionic
ironic
iconic IntegriTease’
emotionally intelligent Nature

Yields to artifice,
not cognitive artifice
to sacramental Nature.

Healthy Arts

A sometimes Yin
sometimes Yang
climate health advocate,
reading Thich Nhat Hanh,
unlyrically speaking of the Arts,
Muses of Communication,
creating resiliently wealthy Community,

S/he warmly considers
Why is such a simple book
so difficult to remember,
and breathfully incarnate?
Soaring through each chapter
for the third time
in less than an historic decade,

She notices
before “Art of Communicating”
Thich Nhat Hanh wrote
Science of “Fear.”

Fears about courageously communicating
even within our left and curious right hemispheres
about either/or
thought v feeling
dominating Western sciences
for dualistic cognitive nature v emotive spirit research
overpowering both/and Eastern acts of compassion,
compression
expansion

S/he holds these sacred communion keys
close within his vest,
listening for peaceful control
of that which leaves her
listening impassioned nest.

She speaks harmonic mantras
for love of understanding
when suffering arises
so too do fear
and stressed out waiting ominous boredom,
without nurtured lives of courage
climate planning.

Despite lapse of peaceful memory,
s/he’s more mindful now of vocational communions
in global interweaving communities
continuing resilient international health communication

When s/he practices
zen re-reads
time re-practices
curious compassions
overwhelming Western fear-filled praxis.

Positively Deviant

She seems afraid to say too much
and not listen enough.

Perhaps fear of becoming misunderstood
and, worse, too quickly dismissed,
her moment,
even in this small-staged sanctuary,
unnoticed
under-nourished
unfed
unwatered.

She wants to share with us
her deviant dissonant sufficiency
usually seen as negative degenerating autonomy
but, occasionally, in epiphanies of positive
ecologically healthy
revolutionary ZeroZen deviant resonant potential,

Receptive tingling silence
thumping and breathing
autonomously ringing singing
timelessly herstoric
within domesticating unreal world paradise,
unwombed worn integrity re-memories
echoing between nightseed dreams
and switching off her leftbrain daily alarm.

Until she smiles
I am impressed by her nothing is sadly wrong
yet everything goes unsanctuary too patriarchally long,

Business As RightWing World gone,
anxiety about personal and political
and social and psychological
and mental and physical health issues
for future climate chaos kids
reversing integrity’s robust synergetic win-win potential.

I notice then
soft teeth with nearly infinite hard work
pain
suffering loss,
alone?

Physically alone,
and not not spiritually autonomous
feminist suffering deviance
often in counterculturing ways
to help others,
more win-lose predominant,
suffer unspoken withdrawal less.

Once
I see her primal eyes smile
and suddenly my own competitive mistrust,
my own positive deviant naked fear,
goes away,
dismissed by curious eagerness.

Compassion therapeutically co-arises.

I ask if she too suffers
without sufficient release
from mutually withheld win-win loneliness,
mistrust of fully disclosed intimacy
vulnerability
co-empathic joy.

She continues
now turning toward wealthy belly laughs
co-operating integrity
mutually vibrating abdowomen,
soul sound of synergy’s vast wisdom
loudly rooting for win-win potential global health
through her sanctuary solidarity,
still curiously becoming.

She seems fearless to listen too much
and eager to not say enough.

She Thinks About Fame

She thinks about fear
with quick step of right foot

And thinks about why
as she swings with strong left

Why she can’t think
of a name
When he’s deep in his greed
for more fame.

Should it not be the case
famous greed has a face?
This greed for His fame
should have Her blazed name
for His infamous Self

Hidden
yet naked
green greed of Her ego-less
to be known
and renowned,
pre-nouned
and revered.

She thinks about envy
to be set apart
with slower right steps
toward most famous of all
on His left.

She worries Her right
to collectively fight
to forget her DearLord’s clearly wrong
infamous death,
A long-term event
in autonomous greed
known only in crossing
His terrorizing Left

He longs for omnipotence
She knows as lack
of changing endurance.

He belongs omnipresently right
She feels nowhere left
to polypathically go.

He wants righteous omniscience
She fears nothing left to learn

Where greed envy colonies
greet Her past sullen deeds
and furious inflamations
wrestling with fear
stepped out and in right
of fame’s polyphonic refining destinations
steeped left

Marching and arching
preening while gleaning
knitting while needing
sleeping while slurping
faming while lurking
blaming in shaming
disgusting and lusting
crusting while rusting
lacking more lucking

Infamous need
to find absence of greed
in original silent green
win/win ultra-nonviolet
Her passioning seeds
His humbling tombed greeds.

Lonely Nest

Loneliness,
of individuals,
families,
communities
and nation-states,
leads insufficient capacity
to prophecy everyone’s collective interdependence,
and thereby remains partially blind
to Win/Win optimal health/wealth outcomes,
which could not be monopolized
by experiential loneliness
felt internal monocultural sadness.

By inviting risk to shift,
nudge,
notice personal/political Lose/Lose depreciations,
bucket lists of long-standing tensions
causing unhealthy cognitive/affective dissonance
unresiliently stuck in slow ego-depreciating mortality,
absence of furthering resilient appreciative-inquiry belonging
within this
and each
and every
timeless Win/Win left-brain fragmenting
ego-prominent compassion-nest
self/other-perpetuating cooperative polypaths
implied within each unprophetic deeply pre-ingested
re-ingesting healthy/wealthy moment,

Irrational spiraling not not ego/ecotherapeutic self-care,
a dynamic healing ZeroZone
away from repressive solid OneNest walls
of silently atoning loneliness,
onelinest
healthy hoping toward impressive implicit webs
for pregnant metaphoric
meteoric Earthiness,
EarthTribe nest.

Large Frame Painting

I used to envy still life painters
longing to see
organic geometric relationships
between full-color light
and irregular isolating forms,

These close to self-identity
and those background wildernesses
of bright and happy adventure
or dark and fear-filled
encroaching climate pathologies
unenduring nightmare epic nights.

Now I find healthier
and happier resilience
listening to biometric interrelationships
within ever changing,
not the least bit still dead,
flowing light formed Yang
nudging more or less happily
toward brightest ZeroCore
dualdark fertile pregnant potentialities
of universal Yintegrity
through sight and sound,

For polypathic touch and taste and feel
with polyphonic fragrances
of spring newborn cries and coos
through winter’s wise dream
musical-comedy/tragedy hibernation,
awaiting further new resilience days
with resonant bright sky nights

Ultra-violet souled,
witness to Earth’s great transitory emotions.

I now envy synergetic, not fragmenting,
creolizing, not colonizing
matriarchal both/and feeling
not so angry dominating patriarchal
either/or straight too queer
for mutual redemption,
resilient co-facilitators of communication
role-playing slow and GoldenRule grown
full-life revolving pictures
speaking nutritionally through cooperatively owned frames

Pursuing resilient health/wealth dreams
in ego’s foreground
as witnessed by polypathic
organic voices with rhythm
and pattern,
beat and light and darkly sung emotions
inviting bright and happy resonantly compassionate adventures
with AllSouls living,
past,
and regenerative future

Which is rather a larger
and more robust life-painting skills
integrity agenda.
