For White Boys Only

New Economics is Feminist Economics,
about cooperatively nurturing healthy nutritional investments
rather than WinLose dyspeptic high risk
beat-down 
over-testosteroned 
divestment competition games.

Have you seen a 1950's Lemonade Wars painting?
Two girls, both white of course,
dressed for young Republican success
scowling at each other on a pristine deserted street
of the tree-lined suburban variety,
arms folded across their angry relentless middle-class chests,
shoulders hunched down for their LoseLose anger battle.

Each stands before her lemonade stand,
across the street from one other,
each with a sign that originally says 10 cents,
but with a bold line across it,
replaced below with a somewhat smaller 5 cents,
also crossed out,
followed by a 2 cents price war notice,
about which the entire neighborhood apparently would not give 2 cents
to get involved.

Would this be less surprising if we were looking at two white boys?
How about two brown-skinned boys?
Does the humor have more of an edge to it?
Or perhaps it's no longer funny at all.
Maybe more about just another racist stereotype
about not having 2 suburban cents between them,
about what is intelligent multicultural economic behavior.

Do you think it more likely two girls might have formed a cooperative?
Placed their two tables into one larger street presence,
faced their two signs both up and down the street
to better alert oncoming traffic,
rather than aim them across the street at each other
like weapons of mutual disdain,
splitting their take at the end of a lovely day
chattering away with and between more convivial customers.

But, probably less likely for two boys from the 50's and 60's.
Today, I'm not so sure.
Perhaps boys and girls, and all between,
are learning a healthier,
more fertile,
way of doing the math,
finding profit through cooperative ecopolitical relationships.

We have feminist psychology and therapy and medicine
and politics
and theology and history and sociology
and probably anthropology, for all I know.
Research and theorem proofing and disproofing
more likely to unfold through networking circles
of mutual nurturing
than competitive marching in financial-support squares
of irrational distinctions without seminal difference.

So, why is New Economics not called Feminist EcoPolitics?
Maybe it is, but not where I live
and not where I have read,
but I still hope to see more cooperative lemonade stands
across suburban and urban and rural divides,
blending gender divides to make lemonade out of,
well, whatever you have of potential nourishing value,
discarding over-heated presumptions of competition,
to pour out equivalent assumptions of cooperative ecopolitics,
where Golden Rules apply transgenderally
as Golden Ratios reply transculturally,
producing Golden Elixirs of inclusive consumer satisfaction;
this day we will have done well.

Pink Vulnerability


I continue to feel
the searing pain. 
ever constant.
so keen.
Not the kind
    that heals fast,
      open wound that closes.
But, the kind that stays vulnerably
       with the passing years.
Three decades 
        and still counting.

Woe to this pain!
With laden anguish, 
The heart's bemoaning.
Thinking it was born
     without a name.
Only to find then
     at a much later time;
giving in.
Oblivious now.
Unashamed
    that my bosom groans,
        complains.

EcoTherapist Conventions

Truth is a feather 
pushed off to the other side.

Truths are a body of feathers
within which our bodies reside.

OK, students of life’s healthiest purposes and meanings,
it’s time to regather, if you would be so kind.

Namaste.

[Silence]

[My EcoTherapist is trying to recall our bicameral minds with ecological bodies.]

[More kinda creepy silence.]

[I wonder if I have time for a cigarette.]

How do you understand “mind” as other than “body”?

[OK, she leads with a dualist assumption
for a session advertised as nondualist,
so the correct answer must be,
I don’t.]

Which, mind or body, do you believe came first,
or do you believe,
as I do,
consciousness and biosystems co-arise nondually?

[I knew it!
Biosystems are self-identifying consciousness-rememory 
DNA-encoded systems, or RNA, if you’re a tree or something green,
from before the time when physical root systems
transubstantiated into metaphysical regenerate root bilateral,
then bipedal, 
then bicamerally balancing,
eco-political systems.
I remember our history of biological evolution co-mentoring sessions,
out on the coral reefs of time’s surfing copresence.]

If mind emerges from reiterative and redundant and resonant neural-cellular development,
in these, and probably other, senses co-arising nondually,
then what do you think could survive of your Ego identity
upon total biosystemic flatline demise of your natural-chemically elementary cellular body?

From where would sensory consciousness and memory emerge?
From when, and for how long?

[Hang on there now. I’m stuck back on the where question, 
which I think should probably default as Nowhere,
Ego emerges from nowhere?
No, no, If dead,
then Ego as sensory consciousness and memory is nowhere
at that time, and on into the future of EarthTribal evolutionary history.
No such phenomenon.
No such experience within continuous Earth-spinning Time.
I think?
But only as long as I dance this Ego-consciousness string
I am]

As your mindbody decomposes,
is this really still your Ego’s story?
In that future time of opportunities for health and relationship
and transactions,
capacities for ongoing communication,
you struggle to face their mortal loss now, projecting forward,
we struggle together to find faith 
these lost opportunities are not your post-critical event
of loss, decay, absence, inevitable physical and mental defeat.

[I don’t even have faith that anyone will think that day
has come even one day too soon.
Nor would I care to invest in such an unwise faith.]

Or,
in the face of this inevitable termination of Ego’s mindbody story,
do you, 
as unfolding conscious memory-string of continuous information,
transform into your nutritionally reiterating responses and contributions
yet reverberating within EarthTribe’s ReGeneration Story?

Is your Ego expanding out toward Earth’s Story?
pregnant pregenetic, nearly timeless Creation Story,
out and yet deeply into this Elder (0)Riginal Intent.

Body memory transforming within ecopolitical truths of post-taoist beauty,
remembering—revolving—rewinding—reweaving
ecologic of Ego/Eco balancing
embryonic bicameral
dipolar cognitive/affective neural emergence
(0) CommonsCentered DNA/RNA code—syntax
healthy reverse development instructions
for normative natural/spiritual
mind/body elational resonant resolutions
giving oneself birth into this body’s time
as giving ourselves freedom
for time’s codependent love of light ourselves.

[My self-image emerges rather far toward the depressive side
of love as ecoconscious light myselves.
Oh, wait, maybe that connection between agape as Basic Attendance,
understory of all those relational dramas, and nonrelational boredoms,
and fears,
and angers,
and….]

Memories,
knowledge,
thoughts,
comprehension,
dissonance and dismay,
feelings of elation and relation,
anticipation,
innocence,
ignorance,
love and hate,
anger and fear,
all Ego’s products,
as Ego, in turn, is produced
by unfolding DNA instructions
within a nurturing DNA-developed warm embryonic pronoic womb
living in this specific time
within  Earth’s evolution of continuing ecosystemic health-consciousness.

[Oh, I get it, health as therapy-consciousness.
Puts a postmillennial twist on post-doctoral medicinal sciences.
Kind of self-serving, though, 
unless all humane-nature is for ecotherapeutic vocations,
in dying as in living,
in living as optimally visible through mortality’s timeless lens.]

What we inherited from Elder wombs of Time’s incarnation
is what Ego becomes
to cherish as responsible authority
rooted within teleologically exegetical historic evidence
unveiling regenerative evolutions as cooperative nested-networks,
and to let go free as a last pay-it-forward gift
to nurture future healthy regenerations of time
bilaterally echoing
fractal-polypathic light,
(0)-TaoWombTime.

[Why do I feel like I could use a bath
more than a cigarette?]

Time,
dualdark
deepdense Ego-Ecohypnotic co-elational learning bright,
white octaving night,
protons merging eco-lateral binomial electronically issuing waves
as Yes! reweaves notnot 
yinyin
WinWin embryonic-yet.

[I’m wondering if there is something in Taoist water
that regenerates this wu wei balance
spinning through my bicamerally revolving mind
as body?]

Could you become as curious about other’s Ego development stories
as you have obsessed about your own?

[Wait a minute,
when did I give you the OK to label me as self-obsessed?
Or maybe the balance point here 
invites comparisons between obsessive curiosities,
in which case
perhaps my own Ego health constant revival
does indeed lie most mortally on my failing mind.]

If so,
please note differences
but memorize Earth’s natural systemic similarities,
especially about what we all want our end to say
one day's capacities for love as peace,
about gradually subsiding incapacities of anger Ego losses
and fear of/for future Earth as sacred compost, 
transubstantiating post-climatic residency.

Namaste.

[Namaste.
Oh wait,
was I supposed to write that out loud?]

YangTruth with YintegralBeauties

Beauty, like Truth,
speaks eternal promise
of timeless decomposition.

Flexing Grace
effects empathic Truth
optimizing promise prophets past
reiterating Golden Mythic Creation Stories.

Many have mentioned strength of compassion
and tenacious flexibility of mutual mindfulness
as Two Horses to effective political-economic
natural-spiritual sufficiency.

Most dominant Yang encultured poli-economic operators
require less YangTruth voice
and more cooperative listening Yintegrity,
less powering over by opting first for powering cooperatively 
WinWin toward truly engaging, multiculturally embracing, outcomes.

Yang speaks integrity of fertile passion,
need,
wants,
often urgent.
Yin is aptic-optic-empathic,
yet also can step up to polypathic,
mindful selfless, and too spineless, flexibility
for more competitive deductive-reductive exercises.

Too Yin oppressing cultural feelings,
absence of Yang SelfPassion singing in harmony with CoPassion,
brings depression
about oppressive Yang's nondual pouting doubting absence.

Passionate integrity Left
with grateful flexibility Right,
together,
can bring mindfully optimal strength 
to face conflict,
even climatic boundary issues and situations,
tipping toward nutritional doors needing further opening,
tipping away from toxic possibilities 
currently trending toward more monoculturally closed-door competitive stink,
decay finalizing cay's original embryonic promise
toward polyculturing health.

Love's strength is coordinated integrity,
cooperative flexibiity,
promising mutually mindful gratitude outcomes
for endless generations of Earth's Tribes.

Balanced together,
truth and beauty as passion with multiculturing flexibility,
both universalist Yang and unitarian Yin
synergetically square-dancing bilateral capacities
for receiving love
and for loving influence, production,
expression,
articulation within co-arising Now's invitations
into further evolving Grace.

Optimal health/wealth strength in each Eternal Moment
dynamically balances integrity and flexibility,
confluence and yet also the glad-joy memories
of dissonance lost, with gratitude, for strengths of flexibility,
curiosity, empathy.
Old School gut polyculturing wisdoms.
New Economics political ecotherapeutic optimization,
EcoConscious CoOperating ReGenesis.

A new (0)-Core PostMillennial health/pathology ruddered threshold
establishing to pursue and play further WinWin deviance
into ecological norms
re-centering
re-membering evolutionary/revolutionary calibrations past,
more deductively inclusive of other organic polynomials,
balancing positive with double-negative polypathic variables,
ideas,
moments equivalently between past and future
paradigms,
co-evolving systems;
political power positives,
economic co-investment in therapeutic futures
with long-term slow-growth
nutritionally cooperative 
positive 
(0)Riginal Health EnCulturing Intent.

Prophesying evolutionary outcomes 
among still-emergent polyculturing EarthTribes,
to date,
save for those already passed entirely away,
harbingers of what we are invited to cooperatively change.

Who Are You

In the Work That Reconnects,
we have a dialogue exercise
in which Person A asks Person B
"Who are you?"
several times over a few minutes,
as it feels right to reprime this exploratory pump;
then person B does the same for person A.

The person hosting, facilitating, enabling
this reiterative question's redundant possibilities
is merely an echo-present listener,
noticing diversity within these multiple evolving responses,
without judging good, bad, ugly, or even indifferent,
quietly hearing rhythms of longing for love
between the crippling cracks of anger and fear,
compelling and compiling self with other hatred,
pathology.

The question,
Do all these diverse self-descriptions truly fit
this same love v. anger-fear polyculturing-multisystemic elephant?
does not usually arise.
Rather,
we accept all these scrabbling voices
and hats
and feelings
and ideas
and beliefs
co-occurring within one bilateral
positive-health v. negative-pathology mindbody ecosystem,
seeking diastatic fullness
richness,
poly-empathic
polymorphic communication,
design, development, co-empathic investment,
and cooperative-integrative implementation outcomes,
at the end of this elephant's rhetorical day,
if not sooner.

Why is this not always the case
when we ask our friends and families,
our public sector leaders 
and financial sector investors,
"Who do you hope we are becoming?"

What loves are we preparing to invest in 
and which past angers and future fears to divest of?

What indicators can I give
that I already invest in cooperatively regenerate health
agendas,
platforms,
designs and intentions,
co-mentoring therapeutic diapraxis
of which I preach so positively to others?

I know you support restoring regenerative health to our soil
and preserving clean water,
as I do.
So does it bother you,
as it does me,
that we still contaminate our water with poo and pee
instead of investing in nutrition-starved soil,
where both could be positive resources 
countering past neglect and abuse,
rather than doubly-negative pathology?

We say we support cooperatively vibrant and healthy local economies
and empowering political vitality,
so does it bother you,
as it does me,
to so often hear "either-or" deductive reductivism
and wonder why not first cooperatively consider "both-and?"

I appreciate what you just said
and I wonder if adding X might make your idea
even better.
Do you agree,
or maybe you see concerns for yourself and others
new to me,
of which we might learn together?

Could a cooperative election or social change campaign
begin with compiling interdependent hopes and wishes
and loves of Who Are You?
thereby more smoothly avoiding stuckness-traps
of fear and anger and dissonant pathological constipative outcomes.

Could investing both-and cooperative communication norms
better lead toward co-investing in healthy wealth,
politically strong-embraced policies,
procedural and dialogical transparency,
polyculturally inclusive design and development and discernment
of poli-eco-logical therapy
v. multi-morphic pathology;
co-arise local through global health outcome networks,
diastatic eco-normativity,
embracing each and every sacred Person A and B response
to Who are we?

If Time is Money

Does your money derive from health-regenerative investments?

Well, what could that mean?

Do you make your money, honey, 
with both light and dark co-arising memory
of midway love and peace intent,
avoiding anger-fear monoculturally competitive
dominant-power relationships,
and struggles against others,
against Earth,
choosing to struggle with cognitive-affective
chronic neural-temporal dissonance,
indicators of imbalance issues,
and opportunities for more polyculturally nutritious
sensory-neural-nutritional
regeneratively-integrally-intended 
ecosystemic polyculturing health-trend outcomes?

Is that your elevator speech, or Pledge of Allegiance to ReGenerative Health?

I thought it was a question that assumed
you don't like elevator pitches 
for more money being removed from your pocket,
whether asking or being asked,
don't matter,
bad timing to invest in one elevator ride.

Try it again,
what is this regenerative health investment
you think we both have in mind and body?

Is your time and money invested
in this cooperative stream of Earth's regenerate evolution,
co-arising revolution of transition crisis times
as ecoconscious bilateral,
and, by the way, 
therefore evolving-emergent as bicameral-neural,
light of logos fractal-ecologic?

I most certainly hope not!!!
That sounds much too grand for EgoMe.

But, your most active stage of hope,
the one more important than all those that could possibly follow,
is now,
this moment,
is always the permaculturist's nutritional Zero-Centric Zone of Ego/Eco
regenerative development and focus.

Before you in each relationship and transaction,
political and economic,
two primal principles of cooperative economic investment,
possibly of interest to philanthropic,
and religious,
and large-scale public economic/political health-culture research investors,
but most certainly of interest to EgoYou.

Such a sweeping scale of regenerativity.
Are you sure you can deliver such rich fertility
with my money?
Where are your outcomes of such vast healthy wealth?

You need not search this mindbody proposal
to see if I am community invested,
if time and life are money-valued commodities,
my money and health and regenerative potential
for sale or rent,
in exchange for what quality of money,
what source of health investment
absorbing dualdark angry-past pathology?

This proposal comes to you
through deep-nested communities
of co-cultural time as light investment.

What are your layers of cooperative political
and economic investment,
where lie these mutually-subsidiary networks?

My communities are interdependent communicators,
co-empathic autonomic
rich paradigmatic intent and permacultural practice.

Are your health outcomes of potential interest
only to our human tribe,
or is there a cooperative DNA/RNA synergy 
demonstrated in your proposal design,
budget,
and/or installation-investment plan?

Which cooperative investment communities appear
as higher risk potential divestors
due to internal monoculturally-dominant
political and economic assumptions? 

How do you propose to avoid Business As Usual 
anthrocentric-normative trends?

Who do you propose will hope and plan to do business with you,
and how,
through mutual barter, and/or cooperation?
And who intends to continue doing business competitively,
without you? And why?

Who do you hope and plan to invest in
and not invest in,
to achieve healthy helpful outcomes,
and what and how,
whether barter, competition, or cooperative absorption
into our Help As Health Bank?

Your proposal outcomes,
for each moment and day and year,
like your own embryonic Ego life,
should demonstrate early investors,
how you will optimize  polyculturally inclusive outcomes
of equitable harmony,
especially if you are not beginning
with a clearly articulated 
and balanced 
health-regenerative theory
root-systemic base
to compost rich fertile health-enculturation.

I will consider your proposals
each and every moment of each day and night
of mutual ecoconsciousness,
asking where does this proposal fit best 
within our cooperative health-as-help portfolio
with other potential investments at this time,
and/or
to consider in light of prior 
and still ongoing 
cooperative-healthguild investments,
and their comparative health v. pathology outcomes
for future regeneration
of Earth's polyculturing Time.

Please be sure any investment opportunities
explicitly measure future polycultural sensory-health 
against current comparatively monocultural,
over-competitive economic and political status-quo risks,
not only within your Nature-Investment Program Outcomes
but also how nutritional results
will be winnowed and seed-selected,
decomposed to enrich
your own future regenerative Interior Landscape,
your health lives of love
with your original and ongoing cooperators,
yourselves in aligning/maligning relation with others.

Perfect, all here and accounted for.
So, how are you investing and divesting
as our
"Cooperative Help As Health Bank"
ecological economic and political health
permacultural proposal
within your own time as money investment portfolio?

Sweet River Man

Let's wait for the sunset one summer's day
down by the river where I always liked to play
we can kick off our shoes and bury our feet in the sand
come on please be my sweet river man
We can call the wild geese up with a little dab of feed
or jump in the water a little too deep
in that old Red River we can laugh and sing
take me by the hand, make that leap

Write our names in a heart in the sand
you can be my sweet river man
and I'll be your sweet lady river friend
we can hold on for life and scare the catfish twice
anything’s possible that time of day
my white sundress is a little bit dirty
from that red water that always stays so murky

I wouldn't want to be any other place
than down by the river where I always liked to play
and when the moon comes out tonight
and the stars shine bright
your sweet river lady
is going to sing to her sweet river man under the moonlight

watch those stars shooting in the dark as you hold me tight
until we see the sun start to rise
yeah down on the river where I always liked to play
nothing’s changed much since I was just a babe
but now I share with my sweet river man, my favorite place to play

Doing the Math

When I was eight
I knew that Paradise could not be humane only
and yet be justly and omnipotently divine,
when a Great Horned Owl
breathed her last sacred breath toward me,
left alone
while she flew away
to where I would follow
in my adult time.

It took me eight cycles of octave eight
to realize why
Paradise must include nests for fowl
and seas for fish
and surf's bilateral co-gravity.

Because a monocultural Paradise
would be oxymoronic,
economically and nutritionally ridiculous,
not ecologically sustainable,
because not multiculturally
and polypathically healthy intelligence
of regenerative ecopolitical design.

Everybody knows that Heaven
begins and ends in an organically holistic Earth Garden,
with zero-balanced waste stream,
yes?

Love of Wisdom: Philosophy

Why isn't philosophy written most wisely
also poetic verse,
both-and analogical ecology?

While classic philosophic historians
continue this great debate
about which is most important,
truth or beauty?
this same political philosophy pit drifted off a bit from science
as economics shifted wealth away from health.

When did love of wisdom become distracted with comparing strengths
of richest truths as beauty's creative health?
Psalmists and poets have multiculturally declaimed and loved
their deepest and wildest cross-breeding space,
wisdom place.

I seldom enjoy Analytic Philosophy
or Continental Literature,
where most anything could and did mean something
but who knows what exactly
as we never cut and slice Earth up the same way precisely twice
because you can never go quite home again
nor should we necessarily try
to compete to conclude this language game. 

Juxtaposition strong and weak, as a Taoist, 
sounds like appositional dipolarity of Yang (strong) and Yin (weak). 

Ecological principles of permaculture design, 
principles of development, 
including investing in research into mindbody decomposition,
planting yang's monocultural seeds of logical truth and harvesting yin's beauty, 
may embrace this same dipolarity 
achieving Yang Monocultural Universality of Truth 
by flowing optimal Yin Polycultural Diversity, 
DNA/RNA's Harmonic wu wei Beauty, 
dialects and guilds of deep ecological balance 
and regeneratively healthy futures.

Juxtaposition also appears in Buckminster Fuller's Synergetics, 
and other evolutionary-weak through revolutionary-strong theories 
of intelligent RNA/DNA fractal-rooted design. 

Then again, we find dipolar appositional dynamics with David Bohm, 
ExplicateYang v. ImplicateYin Universal/Integral Orders, 
probably analogically equivalent to Fuller's ConvexYang v. ConcaveYin,  
nonduality of ExteriorYang with InteriorYin 
Janus-faces of ecological double-binding temporal harmonics,
focused on the far more wise regenerative space 
where Yang's truth of language 
defines Yin's beauty of balanced proportion, 
as positive equals symmetrically double negatives, 
and light's time equals dualdark cosmology of NOW.

I'm jus' say'n,
when Philosophy lost touch with TrueLove as PolyCulturingWisdom,
wealth devolved away from balancing analogical health,
of politically well-published communication
strings of DNA's regenerative health-centric 
True Creation Story Poems
of rhymes with reasons,
language signs of seasons.

Why are nondual philosophical poets
analogically juxtaposing ecologists?

Windstorms of Neglect

Dearest Sons
and dearest Cinderella StepSister,
I regret ways I have failed each of you.

From today's view of memory clips,
frames as farms of teaching-learning times,
my Great Lover Eldest, yet perpetually unfulfilled,
AfricanAmerican urban male Thug,
driver of van repurposing other's grateful loss,
transporting toward highest and best
ecologically healthy use.

You needed me to choose to continue bedside reading 
just a little longer,
you wanted me to choose family-no-phone daily dinners,
just a little longer,
to choose not to add StepSister
to your adolescent chaos.
Your challenges with reading 
other people's emotional verbal rhythms
and rhymes with reasons,
speak to me of missed opportunities
to invest more eye-to-eye and same-room time,
rather than those other more nutritious monocultural choices,
the kind my dad made without me.

You needed and deserved more time invested
in revesting what it could mean to learn together
about muse and music,
about rhythms with natural rhymes,
cultural songs and political sounds and rapping economic voices
of poetry as temporal rounds of time's seasons
investments in political
with cooperative economic treasons.

My middle shy wilting flower
MidWay Fluent Son.
Co-empathic gifted and cursed,
Polypathically resonant,
and therefore often suffering
through over-heated bright,
you needed more shared sun-screen time,
a partner in your fascination
winning cooperative relationships
bartering transactors,
on-line cooperatives,
competing team strategic outcome choices.

Life Game Outcome Values
assessed against Cooperative Economic and MultiCultural Political WinWin
PolyChromatic Objects with PolyPathic ReGenerating Objectives.

I always love our mutual wins
cooperating "both-and" cultural opportunities to share,
avoiding our competing "either-or" risks of wrong presumptions,
encoding Game Theory versions of Golden Rules with Natural Ratios
applied to all golden-natural ecosystemic relationships,
transactions bilaterally light and dualdark,
4D (0)-centric,
Tao-Soul Revolving RealTime,
BiLaterally Revolutioning LeftThink to RightFeel 
to Left sadtry again.

My youngest son
who has no bodylanguage filters,
who cannot voice his temperate words
with languaged rhythms and icons,
to you I leave a human race
that has already paced too fast
to be sure we can sustain
a future that could support
your incubator and medical needs
in your own future's less viable infants.

Who will sing with our damaged children in their own keys
of rhythm and joy and laughter,
where will your song be heard
as cherished elder-music memory?

Who will remember to tap your shoulders and back
and bounce your bum to the beat
of gospel and rhythms of blue light
speaking through your skin
"I hear it too, as do you?"

Who will hold you through 
internal earthquakes
rolling across inside neural plates
seizing chaotic rhythms,
waves of seismic volcano rebirth,
struggling waves
surfing up and down
in as out as in again...?

You I leave your mindbody
as your beautiful song
and daily liturgy of dancing sounds
in resonant colors
of your warm love of light and scents transcendent
echoes of singing voices past,
ringing flowers singing
flowing through your veins,
beating your thumpthump heart,
breathing your in-out balanced flying mind as body.

My struggling StepSister Princess
baptized in embryonic toxic chemicals,
mixed slyly with MotherManna,
you are born to Yang monoculturally through
Cinderella life,
as Princess or Ugly StepSister,
your moment by moment,
hour by hour,
day by day choice.

For you there can only be one Sun Goddess
of EgoMe,
for whom all others were divinely sole-vested
for worshiping your Cinderella feet.

You vigorously want
and need 
and expect Prince Charming
good and beautiful and truly healthy
and kind,
loving and good-faithing,
listening and fulfilling each hope
instantaneously,
whether for more or critically far less,
to have sole control of all you know,
exterior robotics serving interior ego-manic,
to Yang about by day,
and struggle against all night,
playing WinLose games of confrontation,
either-or assumptions,
when both-and are so obvious
with more bicameral-temporal-neural balance
than you could ever become.

I have given you all I have to invest,
all my Zero-interest EgoLeft/EcoRight MindBody
could think and dream of
to play and sing and story 
in our puppet fable rhythms
of superheroes and romantic witches
of hope as a shared magic smile
over humor that is most certainly 
not politically correct.

You sing up,
I dance down.
You say smile,
I smile frown
upside down.
You say yes,
I say notnot.
You say why,
I say forgot.
You say did not,
I say you caught me,
our co-elating truth,
StepSister don't know how
to give a shit,
to return our opposite
with her own,
economy of survival
in her made up
why dogs eat cats
dipolar dissonantly dialected
neural challenged world.

Dearest Sons and Daughter,
I regret our losses
and celebrate your resilience
to keep coming back into our new day,
despite past windstorms of neglect.

Why

"Universe to each must be
All that is, including me.
Environment in turn must be
All that is, excepting me."
       Buckminster Fuller

Evolving Universe to each must become
All integrity that is, including me.
Regenerative Environment in turn must become
All that co-arises, excepting Ego Memory.

"Synergy
means behavior of whole systems
unpredicted by the behavior of their parts
taken separately."
     Fuller

ReGenerativity means healthy nutritional potential
of whole Earth-in-nested-Heaven
co-emergent systems
unpredicted by time's dynamic dimensional behavior
of bilaterality
deductively reductively taken separately.

Spiritual ReGenesis means healthy behavior
of whole natural ecosystems
unpredicted by the dynamics of Ego Memory alone
reductively reiterated separately from BiCameral EcoConsciousness.

History of Nature's Synergetic Enculturation Design and Development
includes PermaCultural ReGeneration of nature-spirit nondual landscapes,
includes prime-relational-time 
healthy unfolding of humane-as-sacred bicameral nature-spirit
as nondual sensory-cognitive-neural reception
and resonant articulation
of nutritional-integral landscapes,
gestalts,
soul soils and transactional skins
morphing endosymbiosis
balancing Earth-time's ectosymbiotic reculturing health agenda.
.

History of RNA to DNA fractal equivalence,
dynamic dialectical design
developed dipolar eco/ego-holonic self-reiterative consciousness
of Yang as light bright diastatic potential
coterminous coincidental co-arising co-gravitating
Yin's dualdark neutral (0) PlaceHolder-Centric
ballast of harmonic DNA-octave folding and unfolding
refolding and prefolding bilateral flow of Time
regenerating healthy organic ecosystemic spatial articulation
through correlations surfing back and forth multi-reiterative,
revolving day as notnot night's primal root systemic
ReGenesis.

RNA fractals are to PolyNomial SpaceTime resonance
as natural ecosystems are to bicameral temporal-neural resolution,
integral-unitarian syntax-exegesis of co-gravitating bilateral Time,
karmic grace of nutritional systemic balance,
and more dissonant self-correcting imbalance.

Religion is regenerate polypathic egolove/ecohealth polyculturation,
not a great transitional competition 
between grace spirit tradition and evil disrelational and fickle nature,
unless economies of cooperative relationship achieving health as wealth are severed
by distorted ecologies of competitive Win-Lose evolution,
unless polities of positive healthy light-following spirituality
and happiness
and mutual gratitude
are reduced to mere competitive economics
of double-negative LoseLose runaway
reiterative, but eventually degenerative,
ecosystemic feedback loops of deadly despair.

Time, progenitor of natural spaces,
places,
plants and interior psychological landscapes of human nature,
evolves co-gravitationally bilateral,
revolving spirals of light Yang
co-terminously dipolar
with Yin dualdark shadow flowing eco-thermodynamic ballast,
dual-binding negative boundaries of dialectical formation
articulating Alpha BigBang
as (0)Mega Diastatic Prevolution,
emergent harmonic becoming
of Beloved Communicating Community,
ubiquitously accessible to deductive/inductive human nature,
follow the light
of Earth's revolving nurture,
as noon enlightens midnight memory.

Bicameral ego-awareness 
merges holonic integrity 
of Earth's Yanglight-Yindualdark 
revolving in Time's BiLateral Way,
co-arising nondual eco-consciousness
of full life as bicamerally balanced mindbody light,
full death as absence of light's elational-dynamic diastatic presence.

Yet, where lies this perfect vacuum of dualdark synaptic?

RightMindBody Eco-Environment conversations in regenetic turn must be
all that is present-tense 
polyculturating nature-spirit nonduality,
in absence of LeftMindBody EgoPast/Future LanguagedMe.

Why bicameral dialectical what
follows Earth-time's light
stretching to regenerate dipolar notnot binomial equi-valent why
of time's bilateral revolution abundantly unfolding,
predicting when polynomial spacetime 
resonates and dissonates diastatic polypathic eternal resolutions
Great PostMillennial CoOperative EarthNetwork Revolution,
brought through peer-to-peer permacultural RNA/DNA ecotherapeutic solidarity
and ecological economics of healthy values
as (0)-centric norms of time's regenerate unfolding-refolding light.

What I Didn't Know

People, Places, and Things I Didn't Know I Trusted

I rather suddenly, and belatedly,
realized I trust the highest and best use for language,
for every community and communication of faith,
for every school and pedagogical political enculturation,
for every farm and forest,
for every government, including self-replicating government,
for every recreation and arts center,
for every human and animal and Earth service agency,
for every family and tribe and species,
for every ego centered identity
of every age past and to come,
is to become the very best PermaCultural Designers and Developers possible,
to achieve outstanding Continuous Quality Improvement
Health and Safety ecological balance,
multicultural,
political,
economic,
inclusive of multi-regenerational outcomes.
Our highest and best polyculturing vocations,
given our current ego as anthrocentric health v pathology situation
and creation story.

Our PostMillennial Creation Story
began in response to an AgriBusiness As Usual environment
moving away from balanced political and economic norms
about harvesting what you plant,
transgender, and transgenerational complementary equivalence
of authority and responsibility.

This PostMillennial PermaCultural pedagogy of poli-economic design
and development
draws on older nutritional root systems,
reseeding agribusiness norms
with cooperative poli-economic principles 
for not only planting mutual subsidiarity
and harvesting complementarity of regenerative health-trends,
but also incorporates polypathic hunting and decompositional gatherings
of mutually enriching engorging celebration of wisdom 
through past and future generations,
assuming a benign cooperative (0)-sum interest
co-arising trusting Host
incarnating our landscaped universe of mutually subsidiary parasites,
cooperatively loving our health-balancing yin-principle
of integral-complementarity,
co-empathic trust,
integrity of health-normed polyculturing evolutionary compass.

In PermaCulture Design environments,
communication follows and leads a nutritionally-intended flow stream,
with both confluent and some dissonant suboptimizing resonance,
but producing basic healthy trust in WinWin communication
within and between Informed/Exforming/Exformed/Reforming potential.
"Waste" is pathology, loss,
dissonance within outcomes,
but heard as a potential poli-economic resource,
a suffering that will teach us something
we need to learn 
about how to never plan for WinLose outcomes.
never settle for less than (0)-remainder Ego-ReGenerative Trust,
CoArising Empathic Balance.

In PermaCulture Development planning,
our first rule is to do no harm,
following the principle of mutual subsidiarity.
A corollary of note to program and policy developers
and contract writers
and pundits,
be careful about what and whom we ask for,
rather than with,
and where we may under- and over-project
ecological healthy outcomes in response to client investment.

When organizing and developing well-integrated ecosystems,
we optimize design by giving political preference
to self-organizing,
cooperative empowerment Principles of Complementarity,
what Bucky Fuller comprehended more universally as Synergy,
and Love of healthy integrating balance-harmonics.

Community organizers and builders,
religious co-empathic trust organizers,
international communication developers and discerners,
public and private therapeutic dialogue facilitators,
health lobbyists and economists,
all recognize that where one ends up
is hugely and persistently boundaried
by where and when and why one starts.

Business As Usual
does not trust mutual subsidiarity
except in embryonic through innocent young child incarnations,
with DNA-driven original ecosystemic norms 
of fractal-complementary fold/unfold thermodynamic balance.

But my more permacultural business as usual
begins with diversely entwined
mutually defining and enriching,
protecting and promoting,
grassroot and vision-seed investors,
wisely trusting our multicultural anthrocentric planning process 
and nutrition-balancing budget.

My PermaCulture Trust in integral,
holistic,
and sacred principles of complementarity
operates under and within geometric,
biometric,
systemic primal relationship assumptions
of kosmic original intent:
We are all poli-economically within this Golden Rule Universe together.
Everyone,
regardless of species or ecosystemic dialect and rhythm of identity,
is a potential Golden Rule PermaCultural Ally,
CoMentor
in a (0)-core landscaped Universe.

Metaphor and story,
analogy and biology,
ecology and teleology and theology,
syllogisms and algorithms
mutually comprehend this eternal moment's orthopraxis
of (0)-footprint bicameral co-empathic trust.

This radical and profound active trust
is our complementary faith
in time's unfolding nutritional balance,
our understory of pedagogical deep-learning structures
found within religion,
ecology,
trees,
minds as also bodies,
moments and days and years and centuries of evolving history,
ReGenerative Open EcoSystemic Design.

If this PermaCulture word had been visible to Bucky Fuller,
writing about synergetic bio- and eco-systems,
he might have entitled his universalist prosepoetry
and design scriptures
PermaCultural System Design and Development.

When Thomas Kuhn's Problem of Incommensurability
points to
Solutions of CoEmergent MultiParadigmatic MultiRegenerational Commensurability,
then I recognize dissonance
within a more resonant meta-paradigm
as more than hopeless suffering.

We act in cooperative trust
that dissonant
notnot
Absence of Potential Resonance,
feelings of poli-economic longing for relational resolution,
become our teachers of opportunities 
to avoid monocultural-trending climatic ego-identity crises.

Noticing absence of fully matured relational trust
unveils potential for more deeply integrating
exegetical truths of mutual subsidiarity 
with eisegetical agapic-beauty of complementary vocations.

Why settle for self or other;
not healthy-wealth WinWin?

Slow Down the Clock

When we get old with arthritis in our bones we make thoughtful decisions about the use of our time. We can amuse our grandchildren while our children inhabit their jobs. We can volunteer to help others like a wolf that knows how to hunt. We can do something creative with our hours and work toward an outcome that warms people’s hearts.

We have options about what to do with our days. We can sit alone in our homes like the last drop of water left on a rock, or we can behave like practiced magicians who can slow down the clock with the snap of two fingers and live like an elder who is not afraid of the dark and be more inclined help our family and friends as they voyage down the highway of time.

Still Around

I had cancer a while back 
and  at last year's  Thanksgiving I threw a football and I 
could barely send it a couple of feet
After a tasty Thanksgiving feast 
this year I picked up a mini football
and played catch for about 45 minutes
And man, did that feel good!

Education as if All Deaths Matter

Political Science of Eco-Educational Vocations

Really? That’s my topic?
Didn’t Paulo Freire already do this one?

Oh, I see..ecosystemic learning and mentoring,
including pedagogical development systems
doing the best we can,
bless our matriotically nurturing hearts,
to figure out our own deep ecosystemic
co-empathic consciousness
of regenerative ego-health
as eco-truth
as bilaterally balancing bouncing beauty.

We could suggest educational self-learning systems 
begin with bicameral balloon listening skills,
balancing our internal fusing networks
with our octave sounds of light’s and dark's mysterious rhythmic patterns,
surfing radiant Sun sweeping Earth’s pregnant wet skin.

From surf in and out listening
to noticing in-between spaces,
both 1+1 dipolar appositional,
but also 1x1 nondual co-arising spaces between enthymematic places,
some with bicameral communication faces
and bodies responding to cooperative
and competing learning-listening Others.

Pedagogical EcoSystems
synergetic listening communication networks,
deep learning political science
of noticing both cooperative multicultural/polycultural health
and competitive monopolistic/monocultural pathological trends
with runaway climate cultures
of negative-dissonantly-hyperactive feedback,
exercising restraint through Anger Management,
sustained occupiers of Yang dominance
longing to reweave unraveling of belonging within both
science and religion of living v dieing 
as natural-spiritual ecosystemic function
PrimeYang PolyNomial Plus
cooperatively co-arising
YinYin notnot 
WintoWinto-gather
double-bind temporal reverse LoseLose egoconsciousness
of mutual spinning our wheels,
twiddling our thumbs
InBetween empathic trusted
exegetically harmonic healthy learning to learn
ecologic’s internally confirmed  
eisegetically heuristic polypathy,
regenerative evidence of cooperative political-empathic sciences.

We benefit from anciently permacultural contracts
with Earth’s Nurturing Educational Trees and Plants,
creating a breathable atmosphere
into perpetuity,

Primal Educational Contracts with Earth’s SoilRights of Sacred Skin
breathing in rich nutrients of light’s composting fuels
and forms
and heroic functions,
breathing out frequencies of revolving
recycling
healthy ecosystemic biologic embryonic music,
resoundingly harmonic CQI ReGenerative ReCycling ReVolution Standards
of global health and safety,
political truth as economic beauty,
education and defense from undue monochromatic deadly dissonance.

Prime Pedagogical Listening Contracts with Earth’s Waters,
to hear them,
thirsty beauty as truth flowers,
confining weeds to healthy encultural BusinessAsUsual shares,
trading shade for regenerative worms and strings of roots,
ecosystemic Time's matriarchal twining
bilateral selves,
regenerating cells
of paradigmatic multicultural political eco-evolutioning research scientists
deep-learning/earning enculturing rich systems.
 
In-between,
wu wei Golden Ruling kule,
if it means not-this not-that
then adding betweens also means
at least some
of both this way
AND that way,
make each more better, OK.

Fundamentalism,
like terrorism,
is antithetical to both politically wise and profound science
and religious-ecosystemic development stories
of sacred listening
and noticing rebirths of Messianic Suns articulating EarthMothers 
nurture-loving fertile values,
deep learning enculturation’s biologically embryonic history
of nonverbal 
nonviolent (normative as BusinessAsUsual as CoOperative Evolution),
natural sciences, not unnatural devolutional dissonance
as told and foretold by Mother Nature's EarthTribal EgoSelves 
deep learning health-culture listening systems,
listening to life as love, fundamentalist distrust as hate,
to death as absence of active multiculturing synergy,
opposite of deep enculturing rich dense cooperative integrity-life;
the contrasting spectral tipping point
from monocultural, monopolistic,
terrors of deadly killing supremacist fundamentalism,
following sacred idols with no nutritional clothes,
no fuelling powers,
no reality other than continuously vacuuming absence of co-empathic trust.

Earth's Final Answer

A society
culture
religion
humane species
forgetting,
or more likely under-valuing,
how to regeneratively suffer loss
may never have learned to face our universal fear of death
as a badge of permaculturing respect,
dignity through suffering sacred absence
where once we knew nondual co-arising relational life
together incarnate.

In response to loss of love's opportunity for further cultivation,
incarnation of life's positives and double-negative equivalencies
of loss to lose ego death's ubiquitous omnipotence,
we could reverse our Interior and Exterior Climate feedback loops,
turn down our YangLeft competition
another half a notnot notch,
where loss to EgoDeath equals WinWin
for society
for internal and external cultural climates
for reconnecting personal identity
as timeless revolving of Earth's holistic loves
and/as/from/toward death's dualdark TransParent BiLateral CoGravitational Primal Time
of EcoConsciousness
as SelfAwareness of HereNow Light's CoArising NonDual ReVolution.

An absence of integrative dignified death culture,
mourning process for love's loss,
reflects a lack of good and peaceful humor
for Earth's lively lovely enculturation
of regenerative health and beauty,
right as now-ness,
Tao (0)-Balanced Left/Rightness,
where Tao begets co-gravitating dualdark exformation,
dipolar light = CommonsSquared = PrimeEulerianUnitarian-Integral Function.

Failure to celebrate life
merging light's co-investment in stretching love,
emerging norm equivalent to denying death's dark ultimatum,
translating light's co-arising dualdark CoPresence.

Ego,
each AnthroNature,
emerges bicamerally embryonic from warm-heated light,
as each SuperEco/Ego
each Earth(0)-Balanced DNA/RNA fueled cell
speaking intergenerational fertility,
memories of timeless love unfolding,
folding,
refolding climates
toward prefolding Post-BiCameral Earth (0)-centric DiPolar
HumanConsciousness.

Each Ego loss
a sacred loss from Earth's pay-it-forward evolutionary economy;
each Earth gain
a natural win for cooperative EarthTribe future love,
healthier global culture 
sharing a natural-religious sensory awareness 
of ironic double-negative nondual WinWin  sustained fertile humor,
ProGenitors joining in our DNA-designed celebration of life
as notnot death's grand eulogy
for Internal/External Climate TaoBalance.

We each live on in loving light
or not so much,
depending somewhat on the dignity we hold
for each other's natural right to live and die gracefully,
with freedom
with gratitude for this climatic great transition,
toward our cooperative beloved climaxing
(0)Mega Point.

Cultural wounds of enslaving others
stretch a profound investment in basic integrity
of nature's equitable evolutionary intent,
dissonance feeds on evolution as competitive survival of mightiest wealth,
rather than revolutionary health as cooperative thrival
of our self as other co-optimizing EarthBalance 
resurrecting PostMillennial ReGeneration.

Springing strong-rooted sense of cooperative and actively curious humor,
co-arising nondually throughout each love-filled feisty day and embracing night
of generation's future
living toward climatic religioning conscientific balance
of Tao's bilateral bicameral Time,
in which incarnation explicates restraint on Ego's imagined freedoms
of ownership and power
as disincarnation implicates freedom of Earth's diastatic,
nutritiously universal EcoConsciousness,
co-arising, co-present light
revolving day into dualdark night
of Queen Shabbat
as GrandMother Moon's warm multiculturing integral light.

It is this dream of ego-death
inviting future's health-incarnate life,
regenerating Earth's Tribal Balance,
that understories each moment's daytime active love,
backdrop aria 
bookending vibrant grand climatic opera;
ReGeneration Story.

What our global political and economic climate could most invest,
in this PostMillennial Moment,
becomes integral religious sense of Allah's zen-scientific humor,
beauty truly loves terrifying death-as-emptiness,
expressing diastatic fullness of implied autonomic intent.

May truth in each repose
bring each diastatic cooperative bliss,
evolving rich nutrition
for future smiling contented political and economic peace 
with justice for this replete Universal PolyCulture Network of
EarthTribal ReGenerations,
Internal as External (0)Soul Landscapes of Time's Eternal Light;
Active Love 
CoArising CoOperative DiPolar Yang/Yin Balance  
of DualDark DiaStatic Potentiality 
(O)Virginal WinWin EcoLogical Integrity's Universal Teleological Intent,
enspirited day explains night
as nature's night blankets each mythic spiritual dialect,
speaking our regeneration story,
reiterating resonant resolving harmonies
conjoining Earth cathedral grace 
and Sun's yang-fueled karma.

Earth Day Voices

Voices of creation speak Type A and Type B,
and polyglot dialects through Z, 
somehow under what lies in shadow
from B through Z,
anyway, Type A conscious I am alive
in this indoor moment
awake but not directly sun-absorbing right now,
uniquely articulating, yet deeply holonic 
DNA embryonic
with all Earth's tribal livelihoods
speaking our economic ecologic among ourselves.

My Type B right mindbody reminds through night shadows
fearing Type A loss, ego's death of cultural dominance
may remainder only unconscious undead absence of awareness.
More comfortable as Type B eternal grace plan
to re-emerge through dualdark threshold
into Earth's free-floating timeless absence of incarnate memory.

Feeling futile for my Plan A ego
but all part of Plan B's co-mentoring designs as A-B,
now only dancing shadow voice, double-binding time's revolving daily meeting pace,
home as Plan Z ZeroZen nest,
Type A through Z polyculturally ecstatic,
static NOW speaking through Type A's closed windows and doors,
sweeping down chimneys
and up through cold damp basements whispering nighttime's A-B dissonance,
absence of warm co-empathic resonance.

Each of time's voices speaking through each day and night,
some more balanced and resonating deep ecology,
others echoing, struggling, dissonating to not disappear
in anthrocentric ghetto of despair,
needing wider voices of enculturing air
speaking in deep learning dialects of enriching bird song,
Earth's bilaterally languaging design volution.

Yang triumphant Type A days
bound in knots of complexly ambiguous anthro health-toxic communication,
hunting for responsive reiteration
delivering and consuming richly fertile imagination
of Type B-A limbo-dancing hand with hand,

polypathic paradigmatic landscape redesigning
time's culture-nurturing investment opportunities.

What and who and which and why for lunch?

Type A rhetorically dominant days
present high noon risk of failure to Type B co-arisingly thrive.
Inside looking out where I prefer to belong
listening and speaking monoculturally
echoing through my ego comfort and family discomfort chambers,
familiar ghetto gestalt of Left mindbody language
translating while thirsting for deep health rhythms
through each rhetorical Earth day's abundant voices
dialects double-bound to Present now
by shared regenerative syntax,
dialects of co-empathic ecoconsciousness.

Type A yang asks Type B yin, who are you anyway,
shadowing my AnthroVoice?
My B-Yin responds, we are you as nutritional and toxic lights

We want to be happier,

as we step into Earth's Daily Reality,
as we deflate our EgoAnger Fear,

Our cooperative DNA research
reveals a realistically positive attitude

with ego-learning logical merit

To live each day as if (0)-centric eternal
is to love EarthDay's co-emerging plans,
while consulting with one's most delighted

as self-other relational identity.

Any day that feels more confined by fear and anger
than refined by love
as healthy desire for ecoconscious contentment
for Ego as for each EcoCentered Other,
is another day invested
in learning what Earth Day means
by resolving love your enemies,
to know and respect Ego's fears and angers,
contentious boulders
along Earth Day's Tao River
flowing abundantly revolving Time.

Healthy Conversations

Life as active love evolves toward more polycultural communication,
across both species and time,
within Earth’s Solar EcoSystemic Universe.

While this conversation includes human natured communicators,
we suboptimize our ecological balance
if endo-human discourse monopolizes our lifetime learning dialogue.

A life devoid of communicating with Earth’s diverse languages and dialects,
rhythms and patterns of development and decay,
consumption and root systemic production,
cannot optimally support sustained mental and physical health
of humane mindbodies.

Over-investing in our internal human natural and racing anthro-centric communicating systems
may have both caused and resulted in our atrophied RightBrain “yin” enculturation potential,
perhaps more richly rooted in temporal-neural norms 
of RNA nature-therapeutic cousins,
bilateral 
reverse-hierarchical nutrient fold-flow root-systemic
Elder Tree and Plant Forms with Organically Sustainable DiPolar Balance Function.

When we give thanks and praise
we already often remember to include our namastes and Amens!
for these our more inclusive nutritional conversations,
for Earth’s cooperative economic evolutionary transactions,
for our Open Solar EcoSystem’s sustainable climate Creation Stories,
for interdependent Great Transitions,
for crises co-arising courage to turn down our LeftBrain AnthroAlpha-language enculturation,
to tune back into our wider dialectic capacities
within Earth’s diurnal and perennial,
polycultural praxis,
as read thru (0)-EgoEco Balance
as Yang/Yin Prime Octave Temporal Frequency Harmonic Balance,
as Left/RightBrain BiCameral EcoPolitical Balance of EcoLogical Elders,
speaking DNA fractal-development fold-function open frequencies,
within octave primal 4D equivalent PolyNomial SpaceTime,
Prime-BiLateral CoOperative DiPolar CoArising NonDual ReLovingship
of Earth’s dualdark compost voices
singing Sun’s solar-elational multisystemic octave frequencies
thru HumaneEarth’s evolving ecologic-dialectic 
fractal-syntaxed,
reiteratively autonomic temporal-neural communication network,
WinWin self enlightenment,
self-perpetuating eco-polypathic.

Perhaps the difference between Positive Psychology mental health
and Earth-perpetuating regenerative evolution
is nothing, 
Zeroism self-tautologically dipolar appositional-soul humane-structural defined,
as more cooperative political and economic dialogue networks,
now co-evolving,
CoArising CoOperative WinWin Networks
following digital syntax-fractal rhythms
of reverse-nested octave-byte flow patterns
of healthy nutrient-social-political, and, soon, 
even more cooperative WinWin economic digital languages
of PolyCultural ReGenesis REVolutions
as resolutions of multi-paradigmatic (0)-autonomic temporal/neural associated dissonance,
appositional dipolar with primal Tao-natured confluence.

Now, if you, like me, have yet to finish your first and last cup of decaffeined
quasi-guilty pleasure,

Allah knows that even ants consider this stuff, taken straight,
without any chaser, 
toxic,
what kind of conversation with Earth’s Day am I starting
with this cup of decaf, skimmed milk and refined honey?
Tasty, but probably not self-optimizing mindbody behavior,
stirring up some dissonant caffeine grounds
for further dissonant lack of fluent conversations
if only due to my unceasing need to pee.

anyway, I'm back,
I think,
therefore we are,
this is a lot to take in through our eyes and ears
about our tastes and feels and smells
as Earth’s endosymbiotically evolving conversation
about how to Great Transition
from LeftBrain cultured imbalance,
back to those brief Golden Elixir Moments
in blissful primal EgoMemory,
of knowing love with Earth
as peaceful light and root communication
thru some primally nutritional health system,
possibly dualdark or “notnot” or dipolar yin-rooted
in Earth’s TransParent BlackHole BiLateral CoArising Future-as-Past Memory,
YinYin = WinWin Balancing Universal DiPolar DiaStatic Yang CoOperative ReGenerativity,
(0)RiginalMega Point
of Time’s YangForm with Yin-FractalFunction-Squared
Prime (0) PolyNomial CoArising Frequencies.

For me,
it seems more ego-therapeutic,
and hopefully ecotherapeutic,
to listen to the stars,
the crickets, birds, frogs,
rivers, surf, wind, fire, rain
about this climatic dis-ecological pain we share
than to read the morning paper.

Sometimes I hear more about what my humane Ego truly craves
to see and feel and smell and taste
by listening to music
singing love
sometimes also speaking of love
as food for mutual enrichment,
life’s dialectic open gestalt,
co-evolution,
rather than listening to Presidential non-dialogues,
non-discernment,
competing rather than Both-And cooperative conversating,
rapacious word-weapons
rather than rhapsodies with harmonic,
even operatic,
CoArising Original Design Intent.

And, should mental health
Both-And Positive Psychology
have anything at all to do with steering clear of
LoseLose hierarchical-monoculture-exclusive power structures
of mutual competition,

Opposites Attract

How might our feeling-language
play its stretching role
toward imagining ourselves and others
differently than we believe we,
and they,
truly are?

Can you find a difference between problems, as issues,
and opportunities, as possible resolutions,
in how they feel dark v. light,
but this difference is not that of opposites within themselves,
so much as dialectical cause-effect appositional feeling.

Issues like gun control and climate change
feel too dark and heavy and unpleasant
even to those who also
love guns
and fresh air
and clean water
and nutritious soil
and other healthy things--
well, not so sure about loving guns,
but certainly loving sufficient power to control my future with you.

Anyway,
opportunities to control guns
and re-air issues from a freshly potentiating perspective,
and to water clean health,
rather than develop dark issues and constituencies
living as monoculturally over-consuming weedpatches,
feel lighter,
more enlightened,
perhaps even a bit more,
I don't know,
maybe bicamerally rebalancing
our WinWin Co-Implementation Game.

How might our interior and exterior therapeutic voices
learn to speak 
through cognitive-affective dark-languaged dissonance,
for EcoPresent Consciousness of "light feels good"?

Suicidal Notes

Do you sometimes wonder about your self identity
seen through your lens for suicidal risk as opportunity?

It interests me that this lens
evolves as we age.

In later adolescence,
we often look in the face of transition
from good nutritional outcomes on a small stage
about to enter more competitively sharkish waters
within a significantly larger landscape.

Or so I focused my lens in my younger lack-time of wonder.
Not sure why or how these same transitions did not also apply
to nearly all those nonsuicidal 18-24 year olds,
enjoying a more Positive Psychology.

But now, in later adulthood,
I more often look in the face of a potential suicide
as one with at best mediocre outcomes
on a too-small stage,
often familial, or lack thereof,
about to enter no stage at all,
thinking maybe why postpone this mortal inevitability
of decay.

From younger suicides,
"What would be the point of continuing
this WinLose Game,
when we all feel RealTime drill,
you never clearly win
until you stop losing,
and you never stop losing,
until you stop playing.
Clearly I am about to lose
what I don't feel all that great about
ever having won
at others' expense."

From older suicides,
"What was the point
of taking so long
to end this rigged Lose to Lose
death-embracing game
called life?"

It feels like these despair and suffering questions
co-arise within exponentially more of us,
asking echoing silos
as our encultured Earth moves
into a new revolutionary millennium.

Given the now nearly inevitable demise
of our polyculturally and climatically climaxing
exterior and interior lenses
of healthy hope v. toxic pathological 
and monocultural decline
of ecological
and economic
and political balance,
how do we know
we are more than an overpopulating parasitic blight
riding Earth's mortuary-in-waiting
where Elders remind was once
a healthy regenerative place
to continue living?

Yet it is so important to notice
not only all despairing souls
jumping off roofs
but also healthfully repairing souls
building polyculturally positive-deviant landscapes
of organic and synergetic opportunity,
cooperative networks of resonant resolve
sounding Time's dipolar appositional
issues of despair as opportunities to repair,
still seeking reasonable,
yet deviant,
hope for shared regenerational vocations,
with WinWin reiterating integrity.

No ego is autonomously responsible
for feelings or thoughts,
ideation or even beliefs.
So it is no one's right to judge feelings,
our own feelings,
the feelings-beliefs-ideas of others
as unacceptable or somehow cosmically dysfunctional,
condemning or worthy of global applause
is to take all that we have been given
far too personally,
too unrealistically removed from comparative
and nuancing context
to discern how we might choose to carry on.

It is our responsibility,
personally, and as a species,
to notice trends of suffering and despair,
compared to trends of multisystemic diversity,
polycultural density of nutritional choices,
ranges of harmonic freedom and healthy cultural balance,
as they appear to reflect
and not reflect
our shared experience to date.

Not to judge and condemn failures and despair,
but to praise our most regenerative successes
and love for equitably accessible hope
to include all Earth's cooperative economy
among our emerging synergetic Tribe 
of curious interests.

Up in Smoke it's Reality

Fantasy like Reality can be a disappointment...
Clearing the Air........

He worshipped her from afar...
He had since he was three..
He hid it well , no one knew...
She was his heart’s desire...
With her big bright eyes and her winning smile..
He never thought she would beguile...
Then he turned ten and it was clear..
It had been she who did inspire...
this young man ,with his heart on fire... 
He arrived at seven in the morn...
To help prepare the feast de jour...
He stuffed the bird and chose to make..
Her favourite dessert...fresh Raspberry cake..
He feverishly cut and whipped and stirred..
Grandpa ‘s little helper was becoming quite the gourmet chef...
Then came the time to shower, and get dressed...
He chose his wardrobe carefully...
Making sure that he looked and smelled hmmm good....
She arrived and you could see him beaming proudly...
Everyone feasted on the bird and ate their fill...
He waited on her as I watched..
No one even blinked an eye..
They spoke for what seemed an eternity..
His face could be read for all to see...
Then out of the blue, she excused herself..
And went out on the patio to puff some stuff...
His face went white, I could see his plight..
She chose to be with others you see..
Who foolishly did an atrocity...
The one he worshiped from afar..
Went up in smoke...as she smoked her cigar...

That Gratitude Attitude

Gratitude
A co-empathic sense of trust,
awe,
appreciation of echo-resonant
deep-listening resolving life.

Gratitude 
Autumnal enthymematic taproot of spring-hope,
just as summer's nutritional maturation
unfolds Origin of fertile decompositional mindfulness.

Gratitude
Why Thich Nhat Hanh thinks it important to smile
nutritiously.
Why Positive Deviance works.
Why Positive Psychology works and plays truths with beauty.
Why regenerative political discernment leads
healthier cooperative outcomes
polyculturally maturing
by monoculturally self-governing balancing networks
landscapes.

Mutual Gratitude
diastolically opens toward agapic/erotic love,
provokes lasting happiness and contentment
while sustained in a culture too often neglecting 
more cooperatively embraced and active entertainments.
Necessary and sufficient,
requited,
for fulfilling mindful AS healthy sustainable physical life.

Gratitude
Respect for Earth's grace,
and sustained Mutual Commons Place
leads through hope and toward summer's full faith,
toward fall's harvest of love and bliss;
where We Are One,
and prepare Winter's cycle of hibernating Oneness
in Yin's recessive advent,
facing toward Spring's new birth.

When our intent chooses gratitude
practice becomes centered in mindfulness,
ecoconsciousness.

When intent is co-mindful reiterative modeling,
co-mentoring,
our mutually regenerative practice 
loves life as grateful love ourselves,
Zero-sum economizes grace.

Becoming grace
requires balancing ecology of Nutritional Yang DeductiveCausaLaws
with Love's Yin InductiveAffectiveGrace.
These nondual two are inextricably dipolar linked
as are noticing hope with understanding faith,
yang and yin,
leading, balancing together
toward political/economic health assurance comprehension.

Yin's Grace whispers of hope for a meeting of minds.
To build Yang's value,
resonance,
develop mindfulness,
sing and dance
pray and speak our story,
our history of nutritional laws of nature
with love's grace of spirit,
with gratitude for all those whose voices ring
reverberate
in our ears and minds as bodies.

Gratitude
for autumn's forest falling seed,
inoculating our soils with hope
to be held,
secure,
through winter's politically competitive economy of cold discontent,
decomposition.

Winter brings purgative Advent of dormant hope
without current incarnation of embryonic faith,
which returns to 4-seasoned Earth each reborn Spring
of daily life.

This same gratitude enthymematic seed-root of Positive Deviance,
Appreciative Inquiry,
Basic Attendance,
CoEmpathic Political Trust
between pilgrims traveling Earth's empathic consciousness
of life and death revolutions,
regenerating compost piles of truth as beauty memories.

Gratitude
A graced gestalt,
informed contrast with a nutritional law
of insufficient absorption
into ego-proprietor value-based gestalt,
either-or,
Win-Lose,
healthy-toxic affect.

Mindfulness
balances a bicameral cooperative grace thriving economy
with our midway TrimTab value 
optimizing political survival economy.
This karma/grace gestalt
comprehends OurCommons
as EarthHome Network
to which we equally belong responsibly authoritative
more profoundly,
naturally,
truthfully,
realistically,
sustainably,
normatively,
ethically
than understanding this Commons 
of Earth-Air-Water-Firey flames of information
as property we own,
instruct,
dominate,
enslave,
commodify,
and even lecture with great confusion sometimes.

We do no good presenting our best political-economic lectures
while standing empty-handed in our favorite garden
or forest
or mountain or sea or lake
or home;
far better still to listen to these speak their grace
across grateful ears and eyes and nose and mouth,
to know where we might best begin with bicameral hands
and bipedal vocational feet.

Deep Ecology of Gratitude
growth in depth of regenesis,
an economy of nutritional materialism
co-mentoring bodies of graceful co-ownership
through value transfers with other enculturations present,
past and future sentient beings
at their cooperative GiveGraceForward expansive expense,
co-invested interdependent multigenerational 
benign parasites
disguised as nakedly benign Hosts.

To comprehend this EarthCommons
calls to listen,
with gratitude,
and thereby increase in mindfulness of abundant comprehensive potential,
graceful loving SpiritYin
with nutritional YangNature's Laws and Primal Principles 
of eco-balancing reciprocity.

Were You There

Were you there
when we nailed health culture
to the cross?

Weren't you there?
I thought we were all there!
Wasn't that our Big Bang of an Idea?

Let's just forgive each other for all that angry history
of hurt and loss and painful suffering,
torture and lapses into extermination of subpopulations
based on quite a list of characteristics,
gender and sexuality, age, religion,
occupation, attire, 
placement of domicile within v without walls
of acquisitive EgoAnthro-possession,
and on and on....
Then too we have all that slavery,
adding commodification to the domestication
of our value for healthy human mindbodies.

So, yes, the nail of Angry Cultural Climate
pierces Left's deductive memory screaming past
irrationally unacceptable tolerance
of collective cognitive-affective dissonance
when we are invited into Easter's new-life resonance
of regenerative health trends.

But, I also thought we were all there 
in our more global RNA-centered Right Yin MindBody,
terrified of AnthroEgo's biosystemic culture
of climatic transitions toward timeless demise.
How could YHWH continue to be Father
to Son's Becoming
and yet let His beloved EgoSon die?

Did we misunderstand something about our shared
"child of YHWH" status?
Might we be our Father's first RNA Creation Story,
told and retold through bicameral beating
and breathing
and noticing dipolarity of Time's Him/Her Self-regeneratively
healthy evoluting climate?

I thought our primal crucifixion story
was our co-redeeming health and safety self-perpetuation narrative
of love as synergetic therapy
for angry history
and fear of future shortage of YHWH-Time CoPresent;
you know, the hellfire and brimey damnation scenarios
all the way through
"I never have enough quality time for myself" plot-lines,
long-reiterated issues
and dismay and decay
and all negatively correlated
with healthy, regenerate YHWH-flow
of Time's co-arising Positive trends
(notnot negative, and binomial/bilateral, equivalent),
eating and sleeping, 
communing in generous nutritional climates.

So, how do we get to this true Easter cultural climate
without first getting ourselves down
off that Left-brain over-dominant cross?

I suppose this  is where the Right-brain comes in,
concave and dipolar-temporal recessive tomb,
embracing Ego-purgation.
But, you know, I find it a whole lot easier
to trust it feels and is much safer,
perhaps even a bit relaxing and contenting,
to purge my lungs
when I know we have plenty of fresh nutrition,
healthy cultural climate
to breathe right back in again.

Left-Right bicameral ecoconscious Evolutionaries,
Permaculturist Bodhisattva Warriors,
EcoTherapists and Occupiers,
Medicine Care Optimizers and 7-Generation Sustainers,
PolyPathic Mystics of Revolutioning Peace,
New ZeroInterest Investors
and Lifestyle Mentors and Teachers,
Cooperative Networkers and Game Designers,
it's PostMillennial Time
to design an Easter
cooperative economics
with polycultural politics
actively co-networking Communion!

We keep telling ourselves
this same creation Easter story
every year.
You can't spring Easter season
of new cooperative healthy growth outcomes
without first investing
decompositional temporal-dialectic analysis time
in tomb of winter.
And, you can't dwell within this purgative-embryonic tomb
as womb,
without first letting yourself fall down from all those angry crosses
and using them to devise
primal permacultural mapping strategies
for next year's WinWin health and equity outcomes
this climatic summer of Time's DiPolar Diastasis.

Healthy Living, Wealthy Loving

When I see "evolution"
as a spiritual Creation Story,
then I easily miss evolving
as a natural-regenerative Revolution Story,

And when I wrap warm winter blankets
around my Ego's ReCreation Story,
I create dichotomies and dipolarities
between a morality rooted in neutral soul
and eco-norming blankets,
forming a norm-morality deep rooted
in my eco-spiritual-rational regenetic story
emerging toward Beloved Healthy Communication
and
Cooperatively Balancing Communities
and EcoLove-Management Networks.

Healthy therapeutic conversations
spill over my back fence
under my Buddha Tree of Life,
over my Buddha TaoTree of NotNot Death,
and over my front yard barriers
to step into political and economic cooperative moral spirit
as normal--nature discernment,
to speak love as co-arising poly-dialectic light,
shedding over past decomposing anger
equivocating future dualdark fears
deep down into choice-factories of responsible EgoOwnership.

If our moral syntax speaks in regenerative DNA/RNA,
my, and our,
Creation Story could begin with Uracil begetting Thymine
as one-bilateral co-gravitational dimension begets 4Dimensional SpaceTime,
Zero-Centric-Souled healthy nature,
equivalently co-mentoring NotNot YinYin reverse-temporal Cytosine,
wealthy Spirit of DiPolar TransParent Time's CoPresent Relationship
between PositivePolynomial ConvexForm as now-past
and NotNotPolyNomial 
nondual ConCaving DiPolar 
temporally bilateral 
neural-normal-moral-message future projection functions.

Cytosine-structure as non-languaged YinYin Elder Right MindBody
stretching through WinWin CoOperative Revolutionary Eco/EgoProportions 
and Rhythmic Function,
ReGeneratively Eco/EgoBalancing MoralNomials,
(0)-soul Earth Centric,
on positive evolutionary course
as Win-HealthyLove
cooperatively struggling with
WinLose SubMoralOptimizing Pathology 
of Devolving LeftBrain Uracilly voracious dualdark dissonant future,
alone.

I do better
when I hear my bicameral ego-spirit
speak our bilaterally equivalent 
time-is-nature's co-arising investment/divestment norm.
Otherwise,
all of my past and future possibilities and risks
co-present
overwhelm elational bliss
of healthy wealth
nondual co-arising regenerativity of co-revolving EarthTribes.

ToeNail Fungus

Injustices, victimization,
oppression and other yucky events
of diverse varieties,
are like toe nail fungus:
1. both alarming and embarrassing
2. who knows where it came from
3. we would appreciate it if it would return
from wherever to whatever,
as long as it's away from me.

My kids taught me everything I never wanted to know
about the sufferings of injustice,
while my husband taught me everything I never wanted to know
about the inadequacies of my pathetic attempts at mercy.

"What happened to the chicken casserole
that was still cooling?!"

I used to believe this was a reasonable question
that I should rationally answer.

"Well, Ms. Fetal Alcohol Daughter
decided to eat it without using her hands,
because you told her not to touch anything.
That's why her face looks like the remnants of baked chicken,
mashed potatoes,
and I believe the green stuff might be peas
from ear to ear and a spot on her forehead
and all over her chin,
although her hands remain surprisingly pristine."

However, over the sometimes tumultuous years
of further victimization and mutual oppression,
I have learned to hear these questions,
about domestic and other political suffering and loss
loudly exclaiming injustice, 
as rhetorical opportunities.

"As a kindness to you
I choose to pretend that was a rhetorical question.
Because we seldom really want to know
from whence comes toenail fungus,
or any other of the diverse angry adolescent behaviors
causing cosmic dissonance
and climatic behavioral disorders
as they are doing their best with defiant-compliance."

I don't know, it just feels kinder to say it,
and see self-neglect of wise choices,
this way.

Makes me feel a little more
like WildYeast absorbing nutritious toenail fungus.

1. Embarrassed and Terrified by my own failures to actively love healthy choices,
all the time,
with every co-fungus I meet.
in each moment of oppositionally defiant dialectical opportunity for redirection
through basic regenerative/degenerative, co-arising MidWay=TippingPoint=Yang/Yin wu-wei 
reiterative dipolar attendance 
to co-empathic bilateral balance.

2. Not really wanting to spend a lot of time thinking about my own climatic interior and exterior landscape history;
health-and-safety issues of self-and-other neglect.

3. Feeling like we already nondually co-arise in this permaculturally regenerative, health-revolving repurposing normative-natural value, merit, worth, dignity, honor, purpose, ecotherapy, coempathic ToeNail Fungus DeComposition, as we cogravitate back where EcoParasitic Elders were comin' from:
your wealth evolves from where you ecologically invest your feet,
avoid infestation,
keep them movin' across healthy soil
in clean water
breathin' fresh breezes.

Wild Yeast
breathing in ecosystemic nutrients
breathing out toenail fungus.

In This Beginning

Exactly where and when does Ego begin,
my creation story introduction,
preface;
and is there anything in there about a sequel?

Identity of EarthTime revolving HeavenlyStimulants,
autonomic memory unfolding Ego's storage capacity,
regeneratively biased in favor of time's continuance,
dipolar dynamics of balance and diastatic-diastolic harmony,
evolving Ego-function rooted in Elder PrimeTime's 
seasons of light and dark landscapes.

Birth through young adulthood
diastolic trending eco-biosystems,
and then from mature adulthood on through disbirth
decompositional interior processing trends
reviewing regenerative exterior experiential forms with ecofunctions
sinking deeply into ecoconscious CoPresent Great Transition
diastatic (0)-soul TaoTime of Yang/Yin co-arising elation,
surfing love of regenerating time ourselves,
reincarnations of all prior generations of history,
children of Earth's RNA Tribes,
eco-polyconscious TransPresent bicameral memory 
refold storage

RE: investment and divestment
for/of/with/toward future regenerating health v. pathology 

TO: Ego-Identity bicameral flowstream neural-temporal incubators,
now evolving toward polypathic maturation 
of multi-paradigmatic Earth-health trends

Choosing Safe Hands

Like you,
I make choices each moment
of each day.
Apparently,
we review those choices each dreaming moment
of enculturing memory.
We choose within a range
of permacultural resonance
--regenerative polycultural long-range potential for nutritional WinWin resolution--
or cognitive/affective dissonance

Dissonance between our
Left Ego's Exterior Landscape,
a land of deductive self-preservation,
of WinLose hypothetical consciousness,
of eisegetically held personal knowledge,
of relevant and significant "fact" beliefs,
of ionic-iconic comparative truth maps
with familiar BusinessAsUsual neural networks
of rhythms and patterns of deeply cultured language;

and our Right Eco's Interior Relational Landscape,
of empathic inductive Self/Other dipolar function,
of polycultural therapy as DNA regenerative WinWin syntax default,
of eco-normative correlation, 
electromagnetic octave frequencies, 
and thermodynamic co-gravitational bionic balance 
co-arising LovePeace v. AngerFear as LoseLose
double-binding unstringing irrational bipolaric dissonance
merging back into death's forgotten threshold
between Interior and Exterior surfing timeless regenerating+decomposing(-,-)
information's dialectical DNA-iconic way. 

These two Primal YangYin as Exterior/Interior Relational Landscapes
of human natural identity
cooperate toward polycultural outcomes,
preference for WinWin self/other-perpetuating 
eco-political choices for outcome design
and personal through global redevelopment.

And/Or, 
we will continue with BusinessAsUsual
bicamerally endosymbiotic competition-driven evolution,
lack of ecoconsciousness most of our days and moments,
reserving this sacred space for moon lit dreams,
within each moment's co-arising elational time.

Human cultural evolution,
for regenerating health and therapy purposes,
emerges choice of Left and/or Right MindBody
BiCamerally Balancing EcoConsciousness.

Emerging freedom to cooperatively will
what we each regeneratively intend
to polyculture our Interior and Exterior Landscapes together,
and freedom to step back
take a cooperative time out
to compare our deductive decompositional subeconomies,
to research diverse tributaries of time's co-arising river,
to calculate comparative health costs
and safety risks right now,
for our children's children,
and for all Earth Tribe's children.

Fortunately, and unfortunately,
we have arrived at a transitional moment
as a human-natured bicameral species,
inviting more of our Left-Right Balancing Interior Landscape moments
so we can share more ecological health;
LeftYang is to RightYinYin
as Exterior Landscape reception
is to Interior Landscape resonance,
balancing regenerative health choice
each now of time's revolution.

That narrow optimizing +Love of Health choice
lies MidWay wu-wei tipping reiteratively back and forth
as Present waves namaste gratitude 
between AngerPast and FutureFear

While this may sound loud and pretentious,
I readily admit wrestling with my 120 pound daughter
psychotropically puffed out
while she wrestles with her instinctive addiction 
to negative synaptic drama investments,
trying to stick a diaper on over her pull-up
and under her dress
feels like trying to force a build-it-yourself thong
on a crocodile.
Even so,
I have a range of choices,
to wrestle against this crocodile,
assuming I am on my own,
a victim of adverse circumstances,
or I could ask her if she would be mindful
of her teeth and claws
and might she possibly pretend
to become an opossum
for just fifteen seconds. 

Like you,
I make choices each moment,
of each day,
and review them at night,
until one morning
we get it more right,
deductively decomposing our inductive regenerative trend analysis
into a more cooperative future integrating plan to practice
another day unfolds
another night to refold.

Healing Touch

There is a certain healing touch
     in ocean waves, the powerful progression of unending undulations, white caps           crashing with determination, dancing with destiny.

There is a certain healing touch
     as the salty strike of ocean air sends serenity and touches all my senses.

There is a certain healing touch
     when the cooling spray from of sea water washes with its’ wetness and soothes           my heated soul.

There is a certain healing touch
     in the silencing and slowing of footsteps as they try to run in sand.

There is a certain healing touch
     in being moved by innocence of children and the sandcastles they command.

Sitting near the surf, I watch the roll of ocean waves, soak up the strike of salty air, am washed by cooling waters, listen for the sound of footsteps in the sand, and am moved by the innocence of children in their play.

Leaders and Watchers

Why do you do as you do
and not do as you don't say?
asked the journalist of the leader,
asked the child of her parent.

Because I like to help
and I do not enjoy recognizing myself
as a selfish hypocrite,
responds the leader
to writers of famous and infamous history,
respond political/economically powerful parents
to children writing co-creation stories.

How do you know you are helping
and not helping retain a flawed toxic elitist system,
maintaining poverty of margins
far below wealth piling into too much power?
asked the cynical divestor
challenging this help-as-health investor,
asked the hurt and wounded child
challenging her health-confessing professing culture.

I doubt I could help
without co-investing in flawed health with pathology
in both political and economic systems,
responds this wu wei leader,
responds this co-mentoring parent,
but what have you noticed
might help more
while collaterally hurting less?

It seems to me,
writes aging journalist,
resonate maturing residents of Earth,
those plans and budgets and stories cooperatively researched and written
by and with and for co-investors in our civil trusting enterprise
sustain more healthy wealth,
with less pathological backwash,
as compared to Business As Usual,
self-hypnotic static monocultures,
winning to lose further competitors toward too-exclusive empowerment.

Why do you notice as you do
and do as you would become?
asked the leader of the journalist,
asks our Elders of their multiculturally extending Tribe.
