Liberal LeftWing Flight

It has been said
Charles Darwin was not happy
with leftbrain’s Survival of the Fittest
without rightbrain’s ecosystemic health roots
in Thrival of the Fittin-ingest,

Which Bateson,
and other systemic ecologists,
would later call interdependent co-acclimation,
and Jane Gordon politically theorizes
rare histories of win/win creolization
with much healthier outcomes
and wealthier too,
than leftbrain’s fascination
with wealth-acquiring colonization.

Foolish leftbrain dominance,
so unaware history has regeneratively concluded
there is no lasting resilient wealth
without ecosystemic EarthClimate health.

Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations
produced similar unease
about evolutionary theories
denying the primally obvious
Health of Interdependent NationStates
through robust natural/spiritual Earth consciousness,
co-passioning double-binding nonduality,
like bipolar either Yang or Yin of reductive ZeroSum reasoning
and dipolar both Yang with Yin of inductive ZeroSoul co-nurturing.

While Adam Smith’s leftbrain wrote,
“The necessity of civil government grows up
with the acquisition of valuable property…
till there be property there can be no government,
the very end of which is to secure wealth,
and to defend the rich
from the poor.”

His more interdependently ecosystemic rightbrain
was feeling,
“The opportunities of civilizing governance grows up and out
with the acquisition of healthy interdependent properties
of communal co-acclimation…
till there be cooperatively integral properties
there can be no ego/ecosystemically thriving co-governance,
the very beginning through end of which is to secure health,
and to defend the poor
from the kleptocratic colonizations
of the too leftbrain dominant rich.”

Where “capitalism permits wealth
to purchase,
own,
and profit from natural resources,”
notes Kenneth Cloke’s ecosystemic analysis,

There also,
integralism, integrity,
invites health to invest in,
to cooperatively own wealth,
and resiliently benefit with nondual natural/spiritual resources,

Not only LeftBrain “exhausting the land on which our food is produced,”
but also RightBrain feeding our soil-souls
from which our sensory nutritional awareness is rooted
and wombed;

Not only “poisoning the water we drink
and polluting the air we breathe,”
But also healing the living waters we consume
and collaboratively purifying the air trees breathe
and bicameral lungs digest
ingest
outgesture;

Not merely “the sale and consumption of fossil fuels,
irrevocably heating our planet,
altering our weather,
raising sea levels,
extinguishing countless species
and threatening the survival of millions,
if not all species”…

But also re-investment in natural/spiritual
left/right systems
interdependently cooling our robust planet,
re-acclimating our weather,
re-lowering sea levels,
cooperatively planting and nurturing countless species
and fostering the thrival of ecosystemically resilient millions,
if not all left/right
yang/yin balancing
anthro/eco-systemic life
on secular/sacred
deductive/inductive
unfolding explicate/refolding implicately co-arising
win/win binomial ZeroSoul compassion with Earth.

Where leftbrain’s either + or (-,-)1
is also rightbrain’s resolution
both + and (-,-)0-Soul,
like positive psychology polynomials
equivalently health/wealth valued
as not-not polynomial
neurologically interdependent polypathic web systems,
inviting both wealthy rightbrain polyphonic co-passion
and further leftbrain healthy curiosity.

Note: This piece is heavily indebted to the dialogue and conflict resolution work, growing more robust resilient democracy systems, as found in Kenneth Cloke’s “Politics, Dialogue and the Evolution of Democracy.” concerned with how to win/win discuss race, abortion, immigration, gun control, climate change, same sex marriage, and other Hot Topics.

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.

Yang/Yin ComPassion

If you are a Zen Buddhist
a Taoist,
where wealthy resonant homology
interdependently co-governs global developing history,
past through WiseElder resilient future,

And homology co-arises pre-born
DNA-nurtured
Win/Win healthy phylogeny
of matriarchally-born Earthlings,

If you are a Zeroist,
or an in-between Zoroastrian,
not asha (1) and not all druj (0) either,

You may know,
and perhaps even over/under-stand,
what it means to your ego
to contemplate regenerative in-between,
thin toward fat,
pregnantly interdependent
contemplative ZeroNest
outside Win/Win Earth-centering
inside still a little twisted EgoCentric Win/Lose
short-term One survivalist,

Which turns out to become
a whole lot more than constricted
and narrow-minded degenerating one-ness
of integrity without mendacity;

Unless by one-ness
your non(not-Zero) Ego
experiences integrity
of inside health
reflecting outside wealth,

A community’s healthiest universal destiny
is rooted in humanity’s wealthiest unitarian integrity

Which, in return,
leaves universal Zeroists with nothing much to say
while busy balancing yang-left
with yin-right co-consciousness
unitarian full blown-out flow

Which, in re-return,
is why Zen Buddhists
don’t have much to breathing teach
in-between the win/win Earth’s
asha and bilaterally not-not win/lose druj
within appalling Apollo/Dionysian
non-sectarian languages

Non-violently communicating outside/inside learning
universal yang-left ego faith regenesis
through yin’s right ecosystemic integrity,

Sung in diminished RightWing straining chords
less monoculturally anthro-centric,
out of harmonic win/win ego/eco-balance,

Which the re-re-returning Universally interdependent revolving Unitarians
seem to never stop talking with and through
freedom from and toward non-violent communion
in-between hyphenated hypothetical
heuristic not-this/not-that
zen-zeroistic
seminal wu-wei
cognitive-emotive confluence

At our best in early spring’s full moon
when outside new born light green buds
and sprouts
appear magically united stars
of ultra-violet bright solidarity
of glowing one-nest
as noticed by zero-ness hearts
seeking beauty dualdark green
ego/eco deeply echoing
divinely humane health/wealth
resilient EarthOrganic brown/black values

In sustainable Zero ZenSouls
remembering Yang/Yin full spectral color
points of original interdependent nourishing light

From and for Holy Matriarchal NewBorn Spirits
with holonic patriarchal Zero Summations
of Earth’s danced asha/durj revolution,

Sung intrinsically
and ZeroZone originally
by health/wealth his(1)/her(0)storic soil,
homological souls
of EarthTime’s win/win evolution.

Beyond LeftBrain Intelligence

In Beyond Religion
the Dalai Lama offers non-sectarian roots of compassion
to motivate global cooperative behaviors
and inner mentally nurturing health values.

He begins with the assumption
his readers are asking,
How and Who are we
to become more compassionate,
kinder,
more forgiving,
more health v pathology discerning?
Not just in our root passionate intent
but in our actual co-invested behavior.

We already respond to such questions
by educating our health/wealth nondualistic hearts.

We already work to restrain negative behaviors
with anger and fear mindful
non-mongering
anti-competitive nonself-marketing management.

We already combat and absorb,
acclimate and cooperatively sublimate
destructive emotional impoverishing tendencies.

We already aspire to cultivate ego-health values,
passion,
patience,
contentment,
self-forgiveness for past and future woundedness,
peaceful sufficiency of time and well-being,
left and right bicameral discipline toward mutually transparent confluence,
and co-operative eco-political generosity, paid forward
from one DNA-inspired wealth generation
to those healthy co-arising next.

Such practice,
everyday practice,
awareness practices require no special equipment,
no sectarian religious beliefs,
no lack of pro-active commitment to cooperatively vulnerable compassion.

Our global and local vocations,
across vast seas
and on our own thresholds,
to live ethically unitarian, egalitarian
integrally
harmoniously Earth patriotic
resiliently
resonantly
regeneratively with and for all sentient and sensed Others,
with a wealthier GoldenRule sense of health becoming,
is already co-passionately practiced
practiced
practiced independently of any sectarian nature v spirit dualistic intelligence.

Deep natural health and wide spiritual pan-sectarian wealth
educating our cooperatively owned and managed DNA
infused and still faithfully pumping Elder RightBrain
holistic
autonomic hearts
and newer LeftBrain conscientious minds
already co-invest passionate bilaterally committed time,
past with future strings
unweaving and reweaving nature/spirit species,
in multiculturally sustained sensory effort.

Cooperative
integral
global health spirited through locally embodied
efforts to learn kind-hearted health
with wealth-minded integrity

So we can all left/right
yang/yin intelligently benefit
from already enchanting ecopolitical
ego/eco-logical
co-passionate Light,
co-operative Ways,
co-interdependent Truths.

Pursuing Democratic Health

Democratic pursuits of healthy constitutions
and health policy discipline
are often associated with growing compassion,
enlightenment values
for well-being and happiness,

And peace and happiness, in turn,
associated with prosperity, both natural and spiritual wealth,
never one without the other.

This historical association includes integral global prosperity
hoped for during the Great Enlightenment
climaxing during the 1700s
as our democratic spirited
and natured USA was busy being born.

Health, like wealth,
can be measured in quantities compared across time,
sometimes trending bigger and more robust
and sometimes sadly smaller and more stagnant,

But, health, as wealth, also feels warm flowing
in effluent rivers and root nutritional systemic qualities
of multilateral WinWin positive compassion,
tossed back and forth in everyday discourse,
through LoseLose negative ego-mania
echoing cognitive silos of dissonance.

Personal health, like wealth,
prosperity of happiness and warm nests,
can be thought about as short-term
sufficiency for each moment composing one lifetime,

Or more long-term confluence,
multi-regenerational,
mother’s warm womb to daughter to grandmother’s womb,
back and forth through time
remembered and projected healthy wealth
into our co-passioned nutritional future.

Global democratic health,
like self-governing compassionate wealth,
can be measured in cooperative quantities of lifespans
and consumer market potential
compared to productive efficiency
measured against cost of labor
and materials
and energy consumed/produced,
and pollution
and waste,
compared against Win/Lose inefficient competitions
and Lose/Lose energy resources
of ecological/economic global failure,
and waste,
and contrasted to Win/Win co-investing compassion trends.

Earth’s health, like wealth,
can become more synergetically understood
as qualities of multicultural integrity,
flow,
growing robustly effluent,
affluent nutritional depth, width,
buoyancy, multicultural beauty
speaking polypathic truth to monocultural predation,
degradation from Paradise potential
degenerating to WeedPatch mendacity,
hypocrisy,
lunacy,
rabidity
of narcissistic fear-mongering
twittering
while treating Earth as though a personal AntiGolden Ruled Toilet,
garbage disposal

A rabid rat’s nest
rewriting Golden HealthRule democratic constitutions
to best serve northern
and western white patriarchal monoculturing degenerators
of military industrialized hate and threat commodity climates
growing personally
and politically
and economically
and socially unhealthy
and psychologically unwealthy
and way anti-democratic unwise,

Anti-healthy wealth of white male privilege
dispassionately apathetic toward healthy quantities
and wealthy matriarchal flowing qualities.

Six of One PolyNomial

An adolescent of the 60s,
now nearly sixty years later,
I still at least half trust
thirty and under agree

If you and I
are not part of our cooperative solution,
then we are part of Earth’s competing subclimate problem,
pattern,
economic ecological policy,
political bicameral procedure…

In fact,
or so I subjectively feel
is objectively pointed fact,
I could agree
this is precisely
an important half-balancing truth,

Because
if we are part of Earth’s cooperative health intent,
motivation, both spiritual and natural,
raison d’etre,
holonic gestalt,
then we are also not not competing co-operators,
as LeftBrain logically calculating
as RightBrain silently listening
for non-violent potential;

Which is why I feel as fact
when +1 is not(not) 0-squared,
then, at last, and least imbalanced,
we are getting some co-operative bilateral ego/eco-binary where,

Both ego-here and eco-there
no longer quite so either/or
Left v RightBrain, and Wing, and Wall
competitively dividing future opportunities
for health care giving
and receiving ZeroZone cooperatively owned
and managed
wealth,

Like a universal patriarchal capitalist Right
bowing namaste with
uni-dipolarian matriarchal sacred communion Left
grace- and peace-full,
which feels awesomely like a square rational
polynomial fact to measure
in a potentially flowing kind
of fleeting non-violent
ultra-violet brilliant
reverse dualdark
non-hierarchically inclusive
WholeSystem True
HolySpirit/Nature
ElderRight/Left Life
warm womb ZeroZone healthy
wealthy wet-flowing binomial Way.

Advent of Climate Depression

After required Thanksgiving Day
and depressing night
I awoke surprised
by release into ego-homelessness.

What could sad night despairs mean?
Reiterating loss of identity
mysteriously appearing on this habitat’s coldly absent roof
of sacred grace
space.

Why would capital depression,
RightBrain suppression
and historic patriarchal suppression
suddenly gang up more gracefully,
less threateningly,
on ZeroZone ego-homelessness
freely chosen
before rudely thrown out
for lack of paternal place.

RightBrain fullness of soul
remains ZeroZen timeless re-identification
one empty homeless side without exterior shelter.
But, for how long could eternity reweave
temporary housed DNA souls
becoming Earth’s healthy resilient lifeline?

Advent invites homeless nurturing adventures
into matriarchal kindness, silent advances
into wildly blind blizzards
binding sun’s enchanting rainbow promise
of watery return to Earth’s temporary spring sanctuary
refueling DNA’s homeless
yet robust
absence of living boundaries

Toward, rather than against, Earth’s healthy wealth
future identity transgenerating
transubstantiating temporary sanctuary
in humane health-identity space,
Earth’s co-arising sacred time
of ego’s secular summer
for ecology’s climate climax.

Mutually homeless failing falling theology pilgrims,
EgoYang and EcoYin polypathic souls
overshadowed
by Earth’s great green sanctuary assigned
to re-study timeless regenetic root systems
playing WinWin ZeroSoul revolutionary games
for homeless trusted identity, sheltering
from wildly wounded wandering
within chronic asylum anxiety,

Lost in lonely inside forests
quaking,
outside breaking,
patriarchal fake-sanctuary voices
inside cooperative matriarchal wombing choices.

A lot of cold windy Dad talk
trumped
in each infant WinWin womb
by Mom’s resolute inside nutritional walk.

Homeless ego child
re-connecting this eco-womb,
preparing to journey home again
each sacred light of wintry advent’s dawn

After thanksgiving days
and depressing night
re-awakening surprise
of ego’s wandering
health-rooted
adventurous soul
revolution dawning in darkest brights.
