Sustainable Sanctuaries

I’m in the process of joining a Unitarian Universalist Green Sanctuary
communion of All Souls,
in Connecticut.

This is not my first time joining a new intentional good-faith community,
but it is the first time I have signed a Membership Book
of historical,
spiritual,
natural cooperatively intentioned community
which goes back only to 1911.
Some UU sign-up and -in Books
began, and have been more and less healthily sustained,
since the 1600s.

This AllSouls, in New London,
is more of a contemporary Souls membership history story,
mostly of cooperation,
or we could not still exist,
but probably more than sufficient competitions as well.

At least two natural-spiritual multicultural health formation experiences strongly influence how I approach the “Welcome New Member” folder,
placed in my hand by the Membership Committee Chair.

Our seven UU Communion Principles show up inside this folder
on a yellow-green sheet,
mapping a two-pillared alpha through omega arch;
a health construction bridge
between All Souls past and present;
Not a sectarian wall of dogmatic who is and was enlightened
and who is and was yet to be effectively reborn.

My Taoist Yang/Yin bilateral philosophy
intersects with training/experience with Permaculture Design
of natural exteriors
and spiritual interior subclimate development
for therapeutic and regenerative
Zero ZenZone polycultural health robust reformation.

This nature-spirit pancultural view
of Earth and Her/His non-sectarian communal parts
influences how I read through these transubstantiating communal Principles.

The first and last, the alphaYang/omegaYin, two pillars
speak to what Taoist Permaculture Design has ego/eco-systemically unveiled
inside me,
then outside me:

The inherent nutritional worthiness
and natural/spiritual co-arising dignity
of every person,
living with and for cooperatively owned and self-managing plants,
on organic planet Earth
Respect interdependent webs of nutrition, nurturing
subsystems of all changing climates
of which each ego-system, inside
and each eco-system, outside
is a secular/sacred pan-sectarian
networking
holonic
communal
communitarian sanctuary
preferably bilaterally, even multilaterally, non-violent
speaking and listening,
noticing and caring,
not neglecting and abusing,
polypathic co-relational
co-passioning part.

In the epicenter of the remaining five over-arching Principles
about our shared health-seasoned journey
into how we agree to cooperatively grow
as one organic communal to-gathered sanctuary,
The 4-Season Dimension speaks out, holds tightly, for

Freedom, because cooperatively paid forward and backward through multigenerations,
economically
and politically
and psychologically
and ecologically redeeming health
wealth
virtuous cooperative circles
norms, etc
through co-responsible cooperative research
for healthy yang truth
meeting, and never excluding,
wealthy yinternal nutritionally effluent meaning,
robustly transformative,
resiliently co-relational,
resonantly compassioning.

The Second Principle
births spring thaws of EarthJustice,
nutritional equity,
compassionate sanctuaried integrity
in humane/divine
natural/spiritual co-arising newborn, reborn relations
sprouting summer’s fully maturing compassions.

The Third sun-drenched Principle
celebrates transparently enlightening acceptance
and vulnerably naked encouragement
to naturally/spiritually
outside/inside mature,
climax polycultural outcomes,
polyphonic inside singing outside dance,
polypathic spatial Here breathed yangly in
as temporal Now exhaled affluently yin out
in…

Preparing for our future Fifth Principle:
Bicameral harvesting right and left
of conscientious democratic mutually past/future trusting seeds
winnowed
and carefully treasured
in active hope
for yet another season
of EarthSanctuary renewal.

And then, holistically systemic Yin
as the last Sixth Principle
winterish say:
Prophesying Advent of global non-violent communion
over-arching FourSeason PermaCultural Goals
of healthy EarthGreen Sanctuary, warming spring of
peace-drenched communication,
radically lavish inside liberty of universal love,
celebrating unitarian EarthJustice restored
with
and by
and for
and of all cooperatively-owned
interdependent webs
networks
bridges
gardens
holistic organic farms,
sanctuaries producing and consuming and reproducing
WinWin polypathic Souls
of which each healthy ego
is an essential
nutritional
nurtured/natured
whole yin/yang speaking
singing
dancing
graceful EarthJustice
GreenSanctuary part.

It’s a lot to take in
before moving on to the GoldenRule Cooperative Stewardship sheet,
all about therapeutically treating
and sustaining
robustly resilient
resonant
root systems.

Breathing History

Unitarian Universalism
feels as old as Taoism
governs as old as conscientious breathing
Yang strength in
and Yin flow out
smells as fresh as spacious time
in Here
and out Now.

UUs, like Taoists, “affirm and promote respect
for the interdependent web of all existence
of which we are a part.”

We do not affirm
or promote
or even breathe
respect for autonomous walls
against all multicultural life
in which we spin breathless solidarity.

PolyPathic Political Populace

In another millennial time and Chinese/Russian place,
Taoism began as aphorisms and poetry
about political philosophy,
articulating a bicameral tension
between Conservative Yangers,
patriarchal universalist ego empire builders,
and Unitarian Progressive Yinners, WinWinners,
a matriarchal cooperative
polypathic
multicultural
integrative network of nurturers,
(the longer the list of adjectives and adverbs,
the less important history would prove us to become cooperatively disintegrated)
empty of any sectarian-deductive labeling,
and supremacist framing, function.

Hence, everyone knows the principles of InterdependentYang and EmptyYin,
and usually metaphorically associate them with Male and Female,
and Positive and Negative,
yet few have economically and/or politically defined
the governing power of Tao.
We have the Tao of most everything,
without necessarily being clear about what the label Tao
adds to most anything.

In another millennial time and New England and Baltimore place,
Reverend Channing proposed to replace the Holy Trinity
with God the LeftBrain Dominant patriarchal EgoFather[Mother],
with universalist regenerative credentials of deduced historic effectiveness,
and the RightBrain Unitarian matriarchal OverSoul
of Grace
and Flow
and Karma
and Princess (0)-Sum Prime Relational Energy
of ecoconscious integrative potential,
all four nondual sisters co-arising cooperatively together
in ecopolitical health
and bicameral safety Paradise
of DNA with RNA Solidarity in fractal-nutritional seasons
with reasons of regenerative health,
Original Tao Intent.

Or, something LeftBrain Universal God
and RightBrain OverSoul EcoConscious Unitarian
like Yang Ego discontinuous competitions
with Yintegral EcoIntegrity CoOperative Networking
and WinLose evolutionary model of mutual degeneration
with WinWin ecological model of regenerativity.

It is this Unitarian 0-sum RightBrainBody OverSoul
that Reverend Julian Jaynes explores
as how we are prodigal son and daughter and transgender Egos,
and OverSoul Atman PolyPaths of EcoConsciousness,
Prodigal Unitarians
progressing Ego health and safety Conservationism,
played WinWin with LeftBrain ego-centric
ecological discernment of optimally cooperative evolution
rather than BusinessAsUsual LeftBrain idolatry
of competitive capitalistic revolutions,
and concomitant WinLose violence
in the name of peacemaking,
and pathological lack of long-term consciousness
in the name of climates and landscapes of and for healthy freedom,
optimally self-liberating safety,
nurturance,
regenerativity,
polypathic integrity.

“…[T]here is something else to be observed
as you study your own [prodigal bicameral] nature.
It is a something of supreme importance….
Suppose you observe [several of ego-you] in your daily consciousness,
now one,
now the other
asserting itself in thought and behavior;
who is it,
let us ask,
who is it
or what is it
that does the observing?”

Polypathic ecoconsciousness
of time’s flow,
regenerative and too often chaotically Left-Right dissonant.

“Are you not conscious of still another [Elder RightBrain] self,
larger and more inclusive than the others,
that seems to be standing outside watching them,
counting them,
criticizing them,
applauding them?”

OverSoul,
Atman,
holonic matriarchally cooperative face
of Father Patriarch LeftBrain.
Brahma is Tao of Gaia.

“Who is it that wonders?”

Which God and/or Goddess do you most idolize
as RightBrain BiCameral OverSoul?

“There are times when you fall so completely into the possession of one of these smaller selves [Ego-ideals],
that you lose all consciousness of the one [Earth-Matriarchal ReGenerator] watching outside.
It is only afterward that the presence of the [Gaia-Climate OverSoul] watcher
is seen and felt.
There are other times
when the [ecoconscious] watcher
seems to be on the guard [silent defensive-dissonant-repressed] all the time,
and while the lesser personalities [LeftBrain Dominant ego-idols] are having their way,
is continually sounding the word of [condemning patriarchal] rebuke
or [matriarchal health and safety nurturing] encouragement….
You may call it [prodigal] conscience,
or moral [polypathic] sentiment–
anything you please.
I like to give it the name I have already used
and call it the real
or the larger [OverSoul, RightBrain EmBodied NonDual CoArising] self.”

A rational matriarchal Gaia theistic belief
in an Original ReGenerative Source
could be both theologically universalist
with regard to root source of divine intelligent ecopolitical empowerment,
and teleologically secular-unitarian
with regard to evolutionary Omega Point
of humane polypathic healthy,
wealthy,
and rationally co-mentoring abundance.

Both history and science,
our own eyes and ears,
remind us phylogeny is polypathic
across both DNA and RNA branches
of our regenerative tree of life.

So it is our Earth’s systemic ecology is polyculturally progressing
across all economic/political nutritionally positive/positronic relationships.

In this post-millennial time in Gaia’s growing climate pathology,
Tao means Conserve/Progress ecopolitical healthy climates
of positive cooperative regenerativity,
resonantly inside as reiteratively outside,
below as above
before Space as after Time
positive as double-binding negative
Yang as YinYin
WinWin (0)-sum PolyPathic Prodigality.

 

Rev. Julian Jaynes quotes are from his “Coming to One’s Self” homily, published in Magic Wells: Sermons…, 1922.  As noted in prior pieces, I read Reverend Jaynes’s theology through his psychologist son, Julian Jaynes, who wrote a seminal evolutionary theory of bicameral consciousness development, very much in synchronicity with Gregory Bateson’s concept of Sacred Ecology.

Distinctions of Difference

This sun-warmed March morning
while slowly stretching
in my sedate senior way,
I wondered how I might blame myself
for religious teachers
forgetting most often
that healthy minds are also healthy bodies,
living on and in healthy relationships
and neighborhoods,
enculturing planet.

Who could I blame
for secular science and arts
and health-nutrition teachers
forgetting most often
that healthy bodies are also polyculturally well-fed minds?

Differences of mind and body
are merely in our nondual mindbodies.

While I can discern distinction
I find no functional difference
between natural bio-harmonic functions, frequencies, and formative outcomes,
and ecosystemic mind-balance integrative acquisition.
Isn’t this the reverse corollary
of survival of the fittest?

Thrival of the most confluently balancing mindbodies
is also survival of the least dissonant inside with outside.
Just, even more so,
like Yang-face with Yin-grace.

Perhaps it would help
if I stretch just a bit longer,
if we could learn to stretch-see together,
dipolar AND nondual co-arising
Yang is with Yin
as Body is with Mind
as Left-Dominant Bodymind is with Right-DiPolar-Reverse Mindbody
as Universal is with Unitarian-Integral
as Energy is with cooperative Spirit
as Nature is to (0)-soul Spirit
as Speed of Light is to Nurturing Healthy ReGeneration of all EarthTribes.

Speed of light is about the amount of time
we still have to complete this anthro-vocation
with all Earth’s Tribes.

ReGenerate Earth Yin co-mentoring SunGod
bilateral dipolar revolving
4-season of temporal perennial revolutions,
rather like RNA and DNA,
fractal-functionally speaking.

Prime Relationship distinctions
with dipolar
negative correlational tensegritive
appositional differences,
where two LoseLose wrong notnots
make one WinWin MidWay healthier right.

I wonder if I ever finished those stretches.
I must be losing my polycultural nondual co-not-so-much-arising mindbody….

So Many Struggles, So Little BiLateral Time

Why does sacrilegious
mean struggling against sacred religion
rather than struggling with re-ligioning divinity
as notnot dividity?

How could prodigal sons and daughters
struggle against their prodigy potential,
yet not struggle with their prodigious potentiality?

When would a natural spirit
struggle against spirituality
rather than struggle with nondual spirited-correlational nature?

Which reminds me,
why does human nature
mean struggling against nature
rather than struggling with articulating integrative humane race
within and toward co-arising nature?

Where does contentiousness
suggest warring against contentment
rather than wrestling with nondual content?

How did death economic reassurance
land on “life insurance”?

Who thought mental dis-ease
could not be compatible with mental health
emerging overdue internal uneasy conversations?

Why isn’t anger management
more importantly love optimization development?

How could eco-normative cooperative evolutionary transactions
have become ecodislogical monochromatic competition
to store nutrients in safe deposit boxes
where they become detrimental risk of loss
with inevitably unsafe-able death?

If elation
predicts relations
predict correlations
then why not evolution
predicts revolution
predicts ecorevolutionary systems,
merging regenerative love of EarthTribe health?

If bilateral past-future time co-gravitates,
then why wouldn’t bicameral love/anger Left
with dipolar symmetry/dualdark fear Right
co-arise?

Why would a natural eco-spirit inductive-recessive
notnot nondually evolve a spiritual ego-natural deductive dominant?

If mythic creation stories of why we live
articulate dualdark logos dipolarity of how we purgatively die
while living within a WinWin naturally regenerative,
integral,
and unitarian Earth-Home-Universe,
then how are not all cultural nurturances
both universal and unitarian econatured?

How could a healthy integral, integrative re-ligion
re-tying
re-knotting
re-membering
re-linking,
re-syncing bicameral verb
become such a toxically divisive
anthrocentrically universal noun?

Why couldn’t nurture DNA nature
as DNA-nature eco/ego nondually dipolarizes nurturing love,
integrity as positive-regenerative?

Why isn’t bilateral Time
spelled “Tao”
and defined as self-reiteratively progenitive EcoPresence?

Why are polycultural languages and values and political economies
dual-destined
to emerge polypaths
toward regenerative ecologos of bilateral co-arising global polyculture,
guilds and cooperative networks emerging nondual revolving Time,
as SunGod rises with prodigious eco-hope
yet nocturnally arrests with prodigal ego-suffering,
jonesing about hope
invested in justice
as one more dawn of life incarnate-memory?

DNA/RNA Solidarity Beatitudes

Firmly established Golden Rule justice
is not fluidly tipped out.
Yang has a firm grasp, does not easily let go,
as LeftDeductive Dominance tends toward internally competing constipation,
and emergent fat deposits.

From generation to great regeneration,
Yang’s universalist power for anthrocentric justice
shall unceasingly fail to optimize EgoYang’s
full polycultural regenerate-health potential.

As more fully composted in each natural living system,
co-passion will become genuinely inclusive ecopassion;
harvesting and foresting and fertilizing healthy compost
within oneself-family,
ecological passion will optimize abundant wealth
of nutritional value;
Co-invested with neighborhood and friends,
local cooperative economies and political parties,
co-arising passions will positively
and exponentially multiply;
Organically fertile health in nation-states
co-arises cooperative investments
and more competitive divestments,
to prosper self-organizing cooperative networks
of polycultural wealth,
more equitable climate/culture changes
and revolutions,
Fertilizing and nurturing Earth,
co-arising empathic passion will co-redeem Earth’s Justice.

Therefore:
According to the individual’s co-arising deductive/inductive bicameral fluency,
eco-mentor decomposition within Left-Right balancing Landscapes;
According to the family’s
co-arising ecological passion values,
within as without,
decompose this family’s endosymbiotic functionality
and also those more dysfunctional trends
heading toward eventual pathology;
According to the Unitarian-Universalist Beloved Community’s
co-arising productive investments
in naturally co-arising systems uniting truth
with universal regenerate integrity,
dialectically decompose our co-arising
evolutionary/revolutionary
therapeutic v. monocultural-trending investments,
in cooperative love of polycultural health
and divestment of competitively commodified anger-fear wealth,
discerning economic policy as ecological political justice
within ourselves,
our species,
and our Earth,
global-Universal
yet embryonic-Unitarian,
emerging toward nutrition-balanced
Universal Uniting RNA/DNA Integrative Home,
as Bucky Fuller’s Synergetic Spaceship Earth.

Polyculturally established Golden Bicameral Rule ecojustice
will pour out most regenerate health.
May it be so.

 

Note: The tone of this piece borrows heavily from Laotse; but there are also Buckminster Fuller and correlated Unitarian-Universalist cultural elements, some systems theory, especially through the lens of Permaculture Design for both Interior and Exterior healthier and more sustainable landscapes, climates, ecosystems as nested cooperative-health-potentiated ecocultures.

Einstein and Bucky’s Fifth Quarter

Bucky:
Why didn’t you remind people
that relativity of spacetime relationship
is double-bound and fractally rhythmed
under he Commons Metric Assumption
of 3 spatial and 1 bilateral progenitive time dimension
equals a Zero-Moment spacetime-centric
balancing thermodynamic theory?

Einstein:
Why didn’t you choose my word “relativity”
rather than your more positive-slanted “synergy”
in your geometrics of universal consciousness?

Bucky:
Eulerian prime relationality is midway positive
but also double-knotted and fractal negative,
as convex-within.
If Synergetics has a positive stance,
it may also be true
that “relativity” has a negatively-reductive slant.
Zero-Core Concave/Convex Universe
as Prime Relationship
feels more nondually transparent
than a Universal Theory of Relativity…
but, oh yes, by the way,
this Relativity of space and time story
takes place
within our shared assumption
of 4 equidimensional dynamics
as Prime Fractal SpaceTime Relationship.

Einstein:
I don’t recall saying anything about fractals,
although I did stipulate a 3-Space and 1-Time
Universe
as we know it in human-consciousness.

Bucky:
But c-squared begins with a fractal.
Square roots
regenerate metric-logical fractals.
To commodify the speed of light’s 0-Core Time
as “c-squared”
is to point directly at Bohm’s Implicate Order
of fractal form and functional dynamic syntax
st-ringing theory.

Einstein:
You think too much in ecologic.
Math and physics
boil and toil and trouble
more inclusively as Group Theory.

Bucky:
Well,
have you been following what Thurston
and Perelman
and those folks
have been saying
about the double-elliptical binding 0-soul core
of any integrative,
confluent,
and logically possible,
rational system?

Einstein: No, zero is much too small
to timelessly hold
my eternally universal interest.

Bucky:
Not that I always need the last word
but zero is also much too timeless
to share your expansive consciousness.

Einstein:
Hah!
That was a good one.
