Deep Listening Communions

“The deepening perception
of the body’s illusory nature
is one of the most profound
and inspiring realizations
we can have
to help us let go [of dying bodies and minds].

Deep listening
of our mind’s transition-illuminating
flowing nature
is one of the most profound
empowering
enlightening
and inspiring spiritual realizations
we can have
to help EarthTribal cooperative awareness
grow

To help us globally commit
to let go of egotistic
narcissistic
anthropocentric privileged images
of our monotheistic
all powerful, so inhumanely disempowering,
all knowing, so win/lose transcendently inhumanely
unenlightening dark energy,
straight white patriarchal privileged
GodImaged Language
devoid of resonance with my own personal
intimate spiritual inside voices
deep listening to my interrelated multi-regenerational experiences

No longer severed
dissociated
ignored
neglected
wounded
apart from my
and our
cooperatively-held bicameral communication
spiraling reiterative
redundantly revolutionary
bilaterally polypathic
binomially polymathic
polar polyphonic
sensory awareness

That belief in changing
choosing
planning win/win robust multicultural traditions
is a healthier transparent and vulnerable
communication polyphonic frame

And wealthier lifetime way
empowering truth
enlightening life
than further over-investing
in yet more business as usual
left-hemisphere dominant
stuckness in unchanging Either/Or degenerative
monoculturing

AND Earth OrganicTribe
and EgoIndividuating
unhealthy

regenerative health inspiraling

More powerfully light
than over-emphasis
on ego-privileged lose/lose death
through slow
and painful
eco-political monoculturalism
patriarchalism
capitalism
corporatism
colonizing predation,
systematic and strategic
left-brain rationalized
racist and sexist and against trans-multicultural sensed health

and not feeling remorseful about
further future generational seeds
of climate
and monocultural

This deep listening perception
of the body’s intimately felt
non-verbal communication
spiritual nature
is one of the most profound
and inspiring,
empowering
and enlightening,
ecologically natural
and polypathically spiritual realizations
we can have
to help us let go
of win/lose eco-political debates

To grab hold
of more lively

Neglecting Democratic Health

I’m feeling some civil
democratic health
neglect

To re-member
monocultural anthropocentrism
is a mental health crisis

In our U.S. Win/Lose normative
miseducational systems,

In our anti-democratic
unhealthy parenting,
self caregiving,
uncare-receiving deformative win/lose
devolutionary anti-thesis

AntiMessianic
to prophecy ReGenerative Earth’s unParadise demise,
ecologically degenerative
and theologically rationalized:

Earth isn’t Heaven
as Nature isn’t spiritual Nurture,

Derived from ancient win/lose
RedYang autocratic DeathCultures,
warlike celebrations of anthropocentric hubris,
while Earth witnesses
win/lose intention
devolving into loss
and wounds
and suffering
and further loss
and anger about inevitable ego-centered mortality
and fear of win/win multiculturing
ecofeminist cooperative co-passionate indulgence.

Our good/bad faith community clergy
and lay empower/disempower elders
with too much patriarchal capitalistic
monoculturing apartheid experience,
become too comfortable with economic assumptions
of win/lose norms
to advocate for win/win democratically inclusive
empowerment
and other ego health-invested values
to consistently and cooperatively support
and model
and teach
and feel
and think
and preach win/win compassionate and civil
democratic health,

And not judge and blame and shame ourselves
and each other
into further win/lose present unforgiving
and merciless obsessions
and future self-righteous compulsions,

Democratic cooperative co-investments
in health care systems
as if also a spiritual win/win theological insight
into sensory-sexual-regenerative everyday sacred experience,
as if multiculturally a natural win/win ecological awareness

Also congruent with

Supremely Courted Systemic Feelings

I believe it was Alfred North Whitehead,
an early developer of cognitive systems thinking,
who observed frequent miscommunication
and confusion
and chaos
over bilateral complexities
of Set v isolated Individual issues
within a systemic set
of inter-related issues.

This comes to mind
as I listen to another lose/lose partisan debate
about democratic U.S. civil defense
of appropriate constitutional law
and socially egalitarian order
during this current SupremeCourt
public badgering
bullying
verbal ballistics.

A question is asked
in defense of
an individual health care policy
scheduled to soon reappear
on the constitutionally controversial
democratic health care
and resilient wealth defensive
Supreme Court docket.

Yet the democratic historical system
of evolving eco-political enculturation
education
expansion
win/win reflection
co-invested viral multicultural infestation
global and local peace restoration
(not so much win/lose pontification)
is seldom explicitly voiced
as a shared discussion experience
bicamerally favoring global health outcomes
through mediating and mentoring
compassionate communication safety.

In part
because systemic questions
frames
contextual intelligence
curiosity about responsibly held concerns
are better processed
more democratic-health accessible
more empowered
more enlightened
through open-systemic dialogue
than closed win/lose individualistic egocentered debate.

A central multicultural systemic question
has to do with the U.S. constitution
as a de-contextualized
de-historical monocultural dogmatic document
of a closed set democratic rights tradition
both static
and fundamentally originalist
as Democracy’s Holy Grail

Standing apart from a regenerative EarthSystem
of expanding
enlightening
empowering
democratizing win/win co-empathic history
extending our family
and sacred tribal
and secular state consciousness
to include all public life-health systems
for restoring justice
and compassionate peace-felt communication networks.

Which was more the multicultural value mindset
of Enlightenment Era
constitution-signing
U.S. StraightWhitePatriarchal ForeFathers,
largely left-brain dominantly educated
and competitively rewarded
for verbal debate acumen
more than more right-brain
ego/eco-systemic thinking and feelings
potentially win/win healing
more than win/lose further elitist wounding.

Declaring democratic health
interdependently determined to promote optimal
integral well-being
by turning away from

Autonomous apartheid
hierarchical defensiveness,
patriarchal,
supremely narcissistic
from-above
closed
unchanging
divinely designated elite monoculturalism
monotheism
egocentrism
anthropocentrism
of a StraightWhiteMale
made in God’s patriarchal capitalist
win/lose jealous and punishing
retributive,
and not redemptively re-distributive,
EarthHistoric System

As if a ProDeath Network
of compromised competition choices
too comfortable with military-industrialized
win/lose defense of democratic nationalist constitutionalism
rather than win/win compassion
for democratic global natural/spiritual
bicameral
bilateral
binomial communication-empowering systemic health
evolving
revolving harmonically resonant Constitutions
accessible to past through future optimizing
public and climate health wealth

To, eventually,
as historic multicultural consciousness expands,
and restorative egalitarian justice systems evolve,
as RightBrain interdependent enlightenment flows out,
and as LeftBrain ego/eco-centering empowerment strengthens,

Become a truer
more multi-goodfaith balanced,
healthy systemic democracy
of and for all residents,
humane natures
and divine spirits,
people and plants
and bioregionally cooperative
win/win
healthy systemic
local through global planet.

A better systemic question
for a healthier democratic nation
and Earth:

How do you support
the continuing eco-political WinElite and WinNonElite
emergence of empowering health care giving
and enlightened wealth care receiving
within your own growing
resonant and resilient
multiculturally co-empathic communicating
EarthJustice system?

Or are your mentoring
and modeling aspirations
for healthy interdependence
for wealthy multicultural democratic values
somewhat less enlightened
and more disempowering
than supporting our original democratic experiment
in ongoing self/other GoldenRule
evolving co-governance systems?

Responsible and co-responsive,
vulnerable and transparent,
actively curious and quietly courageous,
win/win committed yet good faith humored,
anti-unrepentent predative monoculturing systems
by multiculturally favoring
restorative healing democratic justice

For all God’s sacred creations
voices
climates
cultures
held in original historic
pre-historic,
verbal and non-verbal and pre-verbal
healthy democratic World SystemicView
and View of EgoRecentering
CoAcclimating
CoPassionate Communicating mindbodies
of sensory reception
collaborative absorption
synergetic digestion
neural-integral multicultural communication
systems
invoking organic individual
yet integrally singing and dancing
resonant
and resilient,
sacred
and secular,
theological
and ecological,
internal
with external,
egocentered
with ecosystemic voices.

Reasoned Bicameral Balance

A rational frame of reference
for multicultural Taoism,
preferred by UniversalYang
and deferred with UnitarianYin,
regards experiences of systemic racism
and white straight male privilege
not only within each individual,
but within each community,
each faith community,
each ecopolitical energy-organizing sector
across this global EarthTribe.

This Taoistic reason/feeling approach
to big systemic issues
is more tipping point analytical,
probably inspired by polypathic bicameral Bucky Fuller,
And not so much monopolized by
micro-identity ego-afflicted elitism,
supremacy ideologies,
victimization debates
about how mine
is unfortunately bigger than yours.

Tao mindfulness
would prefer not to hear,
much less see or feel
Yang abusing
or even neglecting victimized Yin,
further Business As Usual
sometimes violent
Left hemisphere predations
or even verbal cultural misappropriations
depreciating healthy values
of cooperative Win/Win Right hemisphere resonance.

Taoists,
and other universal either/or egopatriarchal thinkers
and unitarian both/and ecofeminist feelers,
prefer the non-violent web
of secularYang with sacred Yintegrity,
bilaterally balanced
egopatriarchal competitive Type Yangs
fascinated with
and ceaselessly curious about
ecofeminist coopertive Type Yins,

Written dipolar co-arisingly
across the hemispheres of each heart,
each left with right non-violently winged
ego-out/eco-inside
bi-hemispheric universal Soul,
and written across the outdoor climate geospheres
of Earth,
more multiculturally inclusive
on this larger stage
of healthy democratic energy,
more resilient polyculturing empowerment.

Elder Journey’s Cooperative Request

The monthly lunch crowd
reinvented our Elder Journey Association
traveling together toward renewal,
resilient
restorative justice,
resonant co-redemption,
revival of reconnecting
through this Great ReTurning Communion.

Our Green Sanctuary Statement:

Love is always unfinished
Green cooperative health business,

Like Life and Hope’s potential integrity,
Living as One, at most, wealthy
by pregnantly listening Womb,

One Green Sanctuary
for future’s distant win/win healthy wealth
continues co-investing…

Cooperative Green Love
is always unfinished health business,

Like Life and Hope’s potential
resilient synergy
journeying hand in winning hand
with resonant nature-spirit integrity.

What we have together learned
of robust reviving communication
absorbs Judith Campbell’s suggestion,
“When your heart speaks,
take good notes.”

And we have listened for greener
more resonant expression,
reincarnation,
“When our heart sings together
we write healthiest choreography
for this sanctuary dance,
co-investing in yet further
younger media arts co-opportunities
of centering community,
resilient senior cooperative household communication
surrounded by healthy green outdoor education centers
for energy democratization,
value and disvalue decommodification,
transparent transport and vulnerable residential reco-feminization
of power
values
energy
for revolutionary cooperative ownership journeys.

We, in solidarity,
would be trans-generators of greening society
toward multiculturing health-wealth Futures.

We each, before we were born,
already experienced compassion
felt in tender embrace
of a nurture nutrition
communal communicating EarthMother
and Her Gaian NewBorn

Bonding our felt original ZeroZone womb,
warmly inviting
and nutritiously wet
Holonic Spirit,

Anima Mundi’s Elder RightBrain
universal ZeroSoul
uniting renewing experiences of EgoLeft
distinctly emerging identity
from undifferentiated and interdependent EarthWeb
of EcoRight
effluent Yin with affluent Yang
flow-strong healthy GreenWombed Habitat.

From such radically inclusive and cooperative origins,
We journey toward an extended family
global in our win/lose hurt
and either/or reductive sadness
to own ancient patriarchal revival opportunities
as both/and
Green/Red Gaian co-redemptive risks
cooperatively sponsored blood and water sacrifices
resonantly planted,
resiliently harvested.

For this Green and Blue and Red,
and all multicultures in-between,
Sanctuary journey,
we invite all Time,
all valuables
all health
all energy
all wealth
all invocations
all gentle compassion,

All co-investments
in always unfinished Love
for journeys into further
Green CoOperative Health Business.

Now, who brought dessert?

Cooperative Play Day

Within our UU extensive family,

When did universal salvation
become uniform non-redemption?

When did worshiping Earth’s Divinity
become celebrating humanity’s Humanism?

When did unitarian win/win webs
wombs
root systems
eggs
seeds
umbilical cords of compassion’s DNA nutrition,
living forests,
dynamic oceans,
multiculturing climates,
robust atmospheres,
harmonic communions
robust re-creation stories
become smug and self-satisfied win/lose evolution theories,
supported by side by side religious walls
of mutual theology-trumps-ecology exclusion
of right-brain felt inclusions?

When will we universal-leftbrain and rightbrain-unitarian nondually notice,
Yang with Yinclusive,
EgoPatriarch with EcoFeminist appreciate,
that “ecological exclusion”,
like “military cognitive/emotive win/win intelligence”
is an extended anti-family oxymoron?
Both left-brain dissonant
and right-brain longing for resilient resonance.

When do we remember
to celebrate competitive win/lose Labor Day
by growing
and demarginalizing
cooperative win/win Play Day?

Following Our Rules

In our Sharing Circles
we have a ground rule
to share a one speaker at a time floor
and unitarian silent listening support

And rules to not verbally share uninvited commentary
suggestions
agreements or disagreements
during, and after,
this formalized Circle.

Speakers are invited to share from experience only,
not from someone else’s story,
experiential and/or theoretical,
parental and/or academic,
personal and/or professional.

This is a Closed Circle
of verbal communications,
a rhetorically autonomous inside job
only silently noting our egalitarian
nonjudgmental
side by sideness
of authority
responsibility
compassion;

Help,
Thanks,
Wow!;

Truth,
Beauty,
Silent Passion…

If we are a composition,
we enter an historic symphony of solo voices
implicitly singing our universality
experiencing time’s nurturing
and severing qualities
and relentlessly insufficient quantity,
except when anyone else is speaking
business as too coldly
or too warmly
usual.

In our Reading Circles
our implicit ground rule culture differs
more in favor of the spontaneous spoken word,
this good news,
extemporaneous,
and bad fake news,
distemper-odious,
gospel we scribe together,

Usually one voice leading
a sustained melodic theme,
sometimes harmonic and splendid,
sometimes dissonant and diminished,
inviting in compassionate responses,
major and minor,
listening for counter-melodies,
for analogies
metaphors
curious oxymorons,
outrageous internal pun fun,
rhymes
and maybe the occasional reason,
held with soft determination
and not hard determinism.

Participants are invited to share
harmonic voices of MeToo
and to gently question why
my own dissonantly deviant choice
traps me in feeling detached,
uncertain,
less certain,
more certain we must be missing
some counter-balancing dirge of risk
and full-circle opportunities
for evolving peaceful revolutions.

We sing in Open Circle rounds
of theory meets experience
greets political philosophy
and primal attachment theory
applications to all relationships
ego logical and unlogical and anti-logical
and dis-passionate,
conscious and unconscious and suppressed consciousness
and more dispassion,
and ecological and ecosystemic
and healthy climate logical
for growing reading circles
into speaking and listening communion rounds
of timeless symphonic conversation,
dia-logos about favored/unflavored mythos.

Cooperative conveners
encourage each other
to speak from felt experience
of belief and disbelief
in some published teacher’s expression of experience
with timeless patience and time-heavy impatience,
of joy and sorrow,
courage and curiosity,
compassion and dispassion,
intimacy and repulsion,
about some subject’s story,

Where it does and does not meet our own time
chosen and not chosen
political and personal
economic and ecological
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
regressive and progressive
inhaled and exhaled
patriarchal and matriarchal
competitive and cooperative
vulnerable and transparent
longing and belonging

New yet old
wealthy when healthy,
democratic when not kleptocratic,
integral when not fragmenting,
unitarian when not too universally closed
to further sacred gospel co-inspirations,
co-passion,
co-presence,

Timeless unity
yet eternal open university,

Secure rounds
yet within freeing surrounds,

Cultural sweet spots
within historic raw plots.

Five WiseElders

Five WiseElders come together
hoping to complete their life circles
resonantly yin, right embodied
sacred light
resiliently yang, left enspirited
secular polypathic bright

Hearing emotions
before seeing to speak changing motions
of flow-strength, river currents spinningly deep
and winningly wide
to move Earth’s deforested
un-glaciered mountains.

I asked them
and they asked me
and each other,
Would you have still come today
if you could only despair
of more win/lose narcissistic business
as monotonously patriarchal usual?

Then a cooperative memory test:
What are your two primal forces
necessary, although perhaps not sufficient,
for social
political
economical
psychological
neurological
ecological
theological change to win yang
win yin experience?

The liberty of prophetic win/lose Crisis
and security of past mutually LovingExperience
now extending from womb toward tomb
in collaboratively somber
summary gloom.

I am already old,
we not so suddenly notice,
if we want to choose a more synergetic EarthLife,
yang/yin love,
left/right resilient balance,
Then we have already aged into our shared climate
of Crisis.

Few more procrastinating uncourageous choices
remain for our aging lack of curiosity.

Remaining time is
and is not
our warmest friend.
Urgency feeds our critical win/win
active climate of resonance-seeking change.

This space,
this partial and potential fire-circle
full of WiseElders
for healing ourselves
by helping to cooperatively health despairing Earth,
must become a resilient sanctuary,
a sacrament-inviting place
timelessly sacred WinSelf/WinOther opportunity
to regain our interdependent non-violent communal grace
of bilateral here/now
yang/yin
left/right
WinOrLose/Both WinAndNot (not) Lose
business as appositioned usual

Left-brain dominance without
also Right-brain integral prominence within
no fundamentalist saint or sinner
and yet also no liberationist
relativist
detached anti-theist
non-correlationist
merely coincidentalist prejudice
against old saints in crisis
and sinners of all ages
in circles for growing robust extending love

On Earth
within all EarthTribes
all spiraling reductions of well-wombed
through tombed
win/win enlightening life

Is not lose/lose dualdark death,
not yet
and not yet passed
past on.

The Naked Emperor Intervention

Oh my goodness!

I was just thinking about Erik Erikson,
psychoanalyst and essayist,
and his social analysis thing
about the U.S.
stuck in perpetual competitive
in-grown
culture-ungrown adolescence.

And Erikson suddenly reminded me of one of my dreams last night.

When The Donald
and a few black-suited security robots
visited AllSouls sanctuary.

I was singing in the choir
to the choir
as white-privileged usual.

But, when he slurped in
our ecofeminist minister
invited him to “Grow up!”

“Stop acting like a junior high
military school bully.
Let go of the golf clubs and take up surfing.
Have more fun
without passing your unpaid bill on
to already unhappy
un-privileged
depreciated ungreat over-populations.
Go back to private life.
Learn how to actively love
and healthily entertain
your own family
with Win/Win non-violent communication games
and organic garden planning
and integral Permaculture Design practices,
and cooperative ownership,
and compassionate self-management.
Try appreciating (not depreciating)
some health/wealth organic farming property.”

“Go back to school
and learn some basic Win/Win community health-organizing techniques
for non-violent resilient communicating
with what you say
and what you listen to
and what you do
and what you choose not to do
still matters to EarthTribe’s future healthy outcomes.”

“Stop pretending to be a Win/Lose adolescent
still trying to remember your Win/Win hopes and dreams
when you were still in your EarthMother
gasping for your first in and out rebalancing breath.”

“I am not your disappointing mother!
We are not your emotionally neglectful and inaccessible parents.
Stop punishing us
for not worshiping the ground
your Win/Lose ZeroSum soul walks on.”

“Do something that might make us want to worship the ground
we walk on compassionately together.”

Then the security robots started snickering
right there in our Green AllSouls Sanctuary.
And then Donald did too
as he turned around to actually blush
(who knew!)
and a bit less slurpily exit,
just like a teenager
slouching out
almost the way he came in,

Except smiling through his blushing Win/Lose eyes
not just his Loseconomic/Losecologic
health-depreciating
critical-noneventful fake-smile mouth.
