Notes from a Unitarian Child

Once upon a time,
an eight year old
Black and Green and Brown and Red and Blue Lives Matter
ultra-nonviolent kid
wrote an ultra-violet note to him/herself
about stuff s/he needed to full-rainbow recall
if and when s/he ever became
a worn out
stressed out
self-defeated parent:

I wish my dad
and my mom,
like Mother Earth
and GrandMother Moon,
had spent more story time
talking about gravity
and enlightenment tales
and depression fables
and repression epics
and suppression mysteries
of basic fairy flying
like what goes fluttering up
must come mortally down
what goes forward in time
must have come from backward in mythic imagination.

I wish my spiritual mom and natural dad
had thought out loud
more about pictures reducing four-directional wilderness imaginations
as the reverse
of time-organic memories
seducing and securing Earth’s original health intentions.

I hope my future teacher vocation
invests more class time
explaining LeftBrain’s obsession
with starting at the elite top of any logic tree,
then going down the systemic stem and opening/closing branches
to define and redefine Top’s administrative purposes
and subTop uber-branches
over their essentially cooperative,
more than competing, parts,
and resiliently reiterative parts parts,

While spending more future outdoor class time
exercising intuition emerging reverse-time images with organic feelings
starting in ancient WiseElder DNA democratic universal atomic memory
to travel back up a reverse historical health/wealth hierarchy
into this ego-embodied integrity day

More outside classrooms
for nurturing cooperatively-held co-relationships
to be sure all our interdependent parts and climate feelings
throughout our neural network biosystems
are regeneratively communicating
more then degenerating more pathological dissonance,
and unconscious disenchantment with competing ego-healers,
and depression,
and repression,
and suppression of intuitive RightBrain ecological/theological prime relational,
patriarchal/matriarchal co-intelligence.

I hope my fellow story-tellers
will remember to talk and listen to kids,
to sing and dance as kids,
to design and develop with hurt kids,
to lead and follow with suffering at-risk kids
will teach and study
breathing in Yang’s patriarchal deductions
to breathe out Yin’s uniting intuitive primal relationships
between what LeftBrain sees too often
as Either/Or oppositional Truths
as RightBrain feels not enough Both/And appositional Trust
that dawn will continue to follow spectral dusk
has followed dusty dawn of sacred ZeroZone enlightenment

As light follows darkness within egos
and darkness without ecologically conscious
theological experience
of uniting love
as grace
and healthy karma

As uracil’s wisdom loyally follows cytosine’s flow
co-arises Yang’s universal monotheistic
RightWing patriarchy has forgotten
LeftWing matriarchal cooperatively-owned prehistory
of unitarian polycultural cytosine evolutions,
birthing appositional twins
Adenine and Guanine,
Zeus and Diana,
Yang and Yin,
testosterone and estrogen…

I long to remember
co-arising polypathic opportunities
for green peace
restoring Yang/Yin egocenters
rebuilding and feeding and watering
matriarchal ecopolitical justice
growing Earth’s healthiest wealth of DNA
sacred story-shaping ecology strings of co-regenerate Tao.

As a WiseElder,
the formerly eight year old Unitarian added,
at long last,

I hope I can retain hope for everyone,
for all future generations,
all species of loving life,
all incorporated constitutions of and for democratic happiness and welfare,
all healthy ecopolitical love climates
and theological grace frames
and ecological karma stories
for cooperatively owning extended family international integrity
within every polynomial x/y-squared egosystem,
every EarthTribe u/c-squared epic string of co-regenerating Time,
every HereNow Yang/Yin-squared polypathic moment
ever after

ZeroZone Universal ReGenesis
begat an eight year old unitarian child
Black and Brown and Green and Red and Blue
polypathic multiculturing lives
for healthier hoping ultra-nonviolent futures.


Wholes and PlayNice Parts

What is the big deal difference
between universal wholeness
and interdependent HereNow fragmentation?

How are they combined
to make one Left/Right
bilateral identified whole?

In an organic system,
a mindbody, for illustrative purposes,
perhaps a mature branched-out tree trunk
supported by a subterranean root feeding network,
whether ecosystemic outside
or egosystemic inside,
separating WinWin cooperative organs
leads to expectations of natural/spiritual dividing death,
abandoning each neglected interdependent part
to stand and fall nakedly Lose/Lose alone,

Positive mutual trusted default Virility,
Resilience hijacked by LeftBrain dominant
Either Win Or Lose bipolar
fundamentally autonomous claustrophobic terror,

Development of cooperating
competing labels
for language interdependent with co-relational experience
studies healthy WinWin organic communal communicating ways

Noting LeftBrain developed deductive dominating capacity
to tear away interdependent transubstantiating pieces
of universal creolizing ionizing wholes
While also inductively RightBrain remembering
how we originally worked and played
holistically combined together.

I want to dance time backward
to sing our larger CreationStory multiculturing view.

Wholeness is a polypathic health goal
Interdependence is a polyphonic wealth outcome–
resilience with resonance

An EarthTribe ubiquitously democratic Place
we can sacredly return to
with Left deductive YangEgo
and Right inductive YinEcoRelational
reawakening Prime ZeroZone win/win
within multiculturing health/wealth polypathic us.

WinWin personal and political history
slowly unfolds, refolds, prefolds, folds
before our revolutioning newborn eyes
as we expand our DNA family organic vision
to see matriarchal cooperative universal ZeroZones
Global composed of interdependent health care Local
Wealth previews, reviews, unviews,
double-binding Ego/Eco Creation Stories.

Perhaps the primal difference
between LeftBrain Universalists
and RightBrain Unitarianists
is this difference
Between which one hand is clapping
Which one foot is dancing
Which one integral voice is cooperatively co-passioned
SecularHere with Sacred MultiCultural-MultiGenerational Now.


Higher and Deeper Powers

I was noticing that those in the Unitarian Universalist Association,
with which I am more or less anonymously affiliated
in some far too abstract way for personal comfort,
believe in three prime sources for their (our) truth search,
rather like a revised holonic trinity,
equally at home for Buddhist monk
or Islamic or Christian not-quite-so-fundamentalistically BothAnd alive.

The first of these is a Higher Power.
Now this must have been written by the Yang Universalists
within the Universal-Unitarian assembly,
because every wholesome Yin Unitarian knows
that what is a Higher Power for Universalist Yangers
is also a Deeper Power for Unitarian Yinners
bilateral BothAnd winners;
so, a HigherYang/DeeperYin Power.

Then we come to the second source,
YangLife and YinDeath.
Now any fully bicameral balanced Unitarian-Universalist,
just as any Taoist,
knows there is always something of Yin within Yang
and vice versa.
Just as there is something of our daytime lives
in our nighttime dreams,
and sometimes our inductive dream work
presents bilaterally incisive insights
into next morning’s Tipping Point meditation
on and for and of the breathless balance
of ego- and eco-consciousness,
empathically trusting in healthy YangLife
and safety of exhaling final YinDeath,
leaving further climatic paradoxes
and coaxial dialectic nondualities
for future regenerations to sift through,
comprehend and decompose,
and then reweave again,
as full-octave light emerges from dark
so life emerges from embryonic death
the absence of discontinuous life at egocentric levels
posing both risk and opportunity
in wider and deeper nutritional Earth-centric becomings.

Finally, we have sacred texts,
the YangLogos and YinMythos of experience
reflected in the memory language of Wise Elders,
presumably filled with both Higher and Deeper Powers.

So, that’s it.
We have the Higher PatriarchalUniversalist Power
with the Deeper BiCameral Learning MatriarchalUnitarian Power
living and dying to WinWin nature-spirit nonduality together,
as written in the fusing-fractal DNA and RNA
of each sacred ecological phylogenically regenerative
and co-operative
reproductive rights and wrongs re-creation story.

Now the 3-Source trinitarian story takes us to the 7 Principles,
which some permaculturists would expand out to 12,
while spiraling octavists, and maybe sufis and artists, stop at 8,
but nature reweaves as a regenerative bilateral-fractal 4
seasons of health and safety regenerativity,
or cooperative ownership and self/other governance,
if you are a Yin-Unitarian NonZero-Sum economist
or a Yang-OneEarthClimate politician
or possibly even nondual BothAnd alive and growing
out your extending UU-Taoist family,
the wu wei in-between horizontal and vertical spacetimes
where Earth and Sun/Moon radiant Sky
nondually co-arise seeds,
and other bilateral root and branching health and safety systems
seeking both Higher and Deeper Powers
of reproductive
reweaving continuous life and discontinuous death,
sacred regenerative texts;
not to become confused with degenerative twitters.


Breathing While Thinking

Yang unveils landscapes of textured thought
while Yin brings climates of swelling and ebbing feelings.

yin affective unconscious
with yang deductive conscious labels and language of natural,
and sometimes oddly unnatural, uncomfortable, relationships,
humane consciousness
searching for divine polypathic continuous timeless eternal flow
of further regenerativity
both discontinuous nutritional thoughts
and continuous maturing revolutions of co-arising
co-digesting feelings;
Yang discontinuous Ego-embodied
convex upon Earth’s historical stage,
yin continuously matriarchal ecologos
ecosystemic concave
within Earth’s herstorical narratives of embryonic feelings
surfing mists
where grey yin oceans
ambivalently blend flowing foggy yang sky.

Where Yang follows oppositional
Either this Or that categorization
into contrasting bipolarities,
Yin co-arises appositional
Both some of that And maybe some of this too,
comparative dipolarities.

Yang, if you are an evolutionary naturalist,
is health power of nutritional regenerativity,
while Yin nurtures symmetrical internal balance
of mutually safe co-digestive degeneration;
decomposition dipolar effacing regeneration.

If you are a PermaCulture Designer,
Yang is about the structure of your regeneratively-intending nutrition landscape,
while Yin notices the feeling climates of decompositional potential,
degenerative winter
co-arising regenerative diastatic climaxing regenerative summer,
self and other cooperative
interdependent polyculturing,
multiculturing political-health as eco-wealth,
in contrast to winter’s purgative monopoly of hibernation.

If you are a Universal-Unitarian,
Yang is your Ego’s universe-embodying health and safety world views,
while Yin is your more matriarchal-unitarian
nurturing defensive climates
of domestic integrity and cooperative tranquility;
Earth ecoconscious mercy with peacefilling ego-swelling-indwelling feelings.

This relationship between regenerative Yang
and degenerative, or decompositional, Yin
is easy to remember,
as easy as remembering to induct air into your lungs,
from Yin-purged toward Yang diastatic,
and then deducting out from Yang full-regenerated
toward Yin-degenerating.

Our breath is deductively toward Yin
and inductively toward Yang,
while our bicameral minds
are deductively LeftYang dominant
and inductive-affective feeling-Yin Right nurture-dominant.

YangLeft deductive ego-conscious universe-building,
while YinRight inductive uniting ecoconscious Earth-nurturing.

God the ReGenerative Father in,
Mother Earth decomposing waste out.
What is waste for Ego,
also nurtures the trees we have not yet killed,
landscapes of textured root-systemic thought production
as climates consuming ecopolitical feelings.


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
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,
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?”

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,
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.


Biconceptually Healthy Political Climates

With Julian Jaynes
we find an egocentric languaged LeftBrain
developing reasons to sacredly love our healthy RightBrain inductive-integrative SacredPower feelings of Earth’s co-relationship with LeftBrain’s Self-ReGenerating Identity
of BiCameral Ego/Eco-Consciousness.

Later on in the evolution of Positive Psychology,
we find Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
with competitive egocentric dominance
too often ecopolitically suppressing RightBrain flow of integratively abundant,
healthy as also wealthy,
regenerative more than degenerative Positive/Negative Psychology.

Then we come to George Lakoff’s concept of economic and political “BiConceptualism”
which also dynamically evolves nondual co-arising bi-consciousness
of ego-conservationing eco-progressive flow:

“If you have a single, all-encompassing worldview, you use the same basic [healthy bio/ecological systemic] values all the time. It’s easier to be a total conservative or [and] a total progressive [through bicamerally mature-regenerative, confluent rather than dissonant, integrative Left/Right development].”

“But given a human brain,
it can be almost as easy to be biconceptual–
except that moral contradictions do occur
and resolving them does take work by the [cognitive dissonant] brain,
in particular the ventromedial prefrontal cortex [which is the same struggling with/against place Julian Jaynes identifies with reiterative empathic/antipathic maturational evolving of bicameral ego-humanLeft with sacred-ecological Elder Right nurture-systemic-flow consciousness].”

“Biconceptualism is made possible by the [bicameral] brain. First, there is mutual inhibition [either-or messages of mistrust, mutual immunity],
which permits conflicting [cognitive-affective dissonant] modes of thought,
but only one at a time.
Second, there is the difference between general modes of [deductive-Left vertical-hierarchical] thought
versus the special cases [of experiential-affective exegetical memetic bilateral memory RightBrain analogical-ecological trust/mistrust/distrust climates of regenerative/degenerative bicameral fertile-health flow].
Neural[double] binding is the [bio/ecosystemic] mechanism for applying a general [paradigmatic] mode [gestalt] of thought to a special [Left-Right enduringly dissonant rather than resonantly confluent] case, say,
applying general conservatism to health care [as ego-reassurance insurance], or applying general progressivism to global warming [also about climates of health care].”

“In many cases the [network double-] bindings are long-term or [exegetically bicameral-confluent] permanent,
sometimes they are short-term and may [eisegetically, heuristically] change [float, flow back and forth, ebb and flow between conservational EgoLeft and
progressive-integrity EcoRight].
Someone who starts out being a [Yang] conservative on [powering-over] an issue may change;
that is, the neural [double] bindings from the conservative mode of thought to the details of the issue
may be [revolutioned appositional] replaced
by neural [double]bindings from progressive [Yin-integral nutritional transliterative] thought to the same [ecological health-fertile v pathology-virginal-sacred empty (0)-Core-Source-Sum-SoulFlow] issue [within each nonlanguaged timeless right-now co-present moment of bicameral (0)-HealthBalance Consciousness].”

“The two worldviews are modes of reasoning [and empathic/antipathic feeling],
sometimes [heuristic languaged] conscious,
most often unconscious [unlanguaged empathic trust in maturing EgoTruth as Health-MultiCulturing PolyPathic Tradition].
They are general,
above and across [paradigmatic regenerative-Positive network] issue areas.
General conservative [yang ego-WinLose survivalist dominant] reasoning
and general [Yintegral eco-empathic therapeutic wealth-optimizing flow] progressive reasoning can occur on any health v pathology issue–
in economic [health] policy,
in foreign [political health] policy,
on the [healthy or not so much] environment,
about social [health] programs,
about [health and healthy] education
and [finally] health care,
about [healthy biconceptual NatureLeftDominantYang-SpiritRightYintegral eco-bilateral co-arising systemic] religion,
and so on.”

“Can there be authoritarian progressives [YangLeft-YinRight multiculturally-formed and polypathically-functional mature, regenerative absorbing degenerative subclimates]?
In a word. yes.
One reason is that [phylogenic formative Yang] means and [nutritional-ecological Yintegrity] ends can function as different [regenerative health] domains [hemispheres] of experience.
Thus one can have [health-wealth] progressive ends but [Yang LeftDominant] authoritarian conservative means.
One can even, in the extreme, be an authoritarian [yang-patriarchal hierarchical competitive power-over] antiauthoritarian [yin-matriarchal cooperative flow multiculturing nutritional intent].
Imagine someone who runs an advocacy [climate regenerative health] group that is antiauthoritarian [pro from-below nutritional responsibility for/with integrative flow co-arising nondual empowerment] in its [ecopolitical nutritional polypathic multiculturing climate health] goals,
but runs the group itself in an authoritarian [from-above supremacist LeftBrain EgoDominant] way.
Certain union [and faith and health and economic and political] leaders may be hierarchical and punitive in their [Yang LeftBrain dominant] methods,
but [cooperative] progressive in their [regenerative health co-empathic] aims….
There is a name for people with progressive goals and conservative authoritarian [Yang-exegetical (yintegrity-repressed] means: militants!”

[rather than multicultural,

Competing in ToughLove Markets

We often think of how best to compete in a very tough love market.
How to look
and smell
and sound our healthiest and highest commodified use
to attract the interest of others
with both similar and diverse sight
and hearing
and fragrance
of trusting radically profound beauty;

A hot package
but also with a warm compassionate
and curiously nimble heart.

Love’s core of becoming
co-arises truth with nutritional trust,
but with vital thrust unfathomably deep listening enthymeme,
echoing Earth’s co-evolve from tribal co-empathic Elders,
licking and munching
on light flights
of horny stardust.

I call my universal Hot Package “Yang”,
why not?
where others have used
Convex (B. Fuller)
Explicate Order (D. Bohm)
Prickly (A. Watts).

Let’s call Yin, then
warm co-empathic trust-nurturing healthy heart
after all
knowing what we always say,
the longer the title
the less competitive our functional value.

Unitarian Yin, whom others have ConCaved,
Implied, rather dialectically,
generally Gooified into a spiritual metaphysical
notnot polynomial
mystical kind of a double-binding humorous mess,
apparently the opposite of anything
one might analogically or ecologically consider equivalent
to The Hot Packages of EarthNature.

When we were babies,
and even more so prior to this incarnation into grace,
we could not distinguish between Yang’s fertile Hot Package
and Yin’s CoPassioning Heart.

But, as we approach looming adolescence,
we have become more LeftBrain Yang dominant,
a lustier search for Hot Earth Packages
of natural regenerativity
polypathically preoccupies our minds
as maturing anthrobodies.

Now what happens as we age?
into more remembered balance of Yang/Yin maturation,
rediscovering our co-arise nonduality
of not too hot and not too cold Earth Body
blissfully content within a warm compassionate
and curiously nimble mind
as healthy bicameral EarthLover/Loved Hearts.

In this sense
grace’s continuing evolutionary journey
invites our re-ascension into Earth’s embryonic YangYin womb
of Hot Fertile Packages
swimming and surfing
through CoOperatively Healthy Hearts
fueling BiCameral MindBodies
toward Future’s (0)Mega ReGenesis.

[Note from non-languaged Yin,
transliterating reverse of above as below:
Cool Empathic Fragrant Flows
of notnot cameral BodyMind,
without nutritional boundaries of imagination,
from Elder’s (0)Riginal DNA/RNA Genesis.]

[Commentary from Hot Fertile MindBody,
RE: Note above, as below:
Notice absence of health/wealth hoarding,
absence of political-economic unnaturally competitive, rabid motives,
with their nondual co-arising paranoid
disecological absence of healthy purpose
fading off into long-term devolution
of what had been embryonically rational ecoconsciousness.]

Nature abhors a vacuum
of healthy
trusting truths as beauty

As do we all,
hunting and gathering within HealthyWealthy Hot BiCameral Packages,
paradigmatic markets descended from nature-spirit bilaterally root/branched communing trees
in WinWin love with polypathically enlightening
notnot love-systemic cooperative market optimization,
both fusion of in-formation and decomposition of not-so-lovely smelling noise,
swollen absence of listening, glistening grace-filling poise.
