Allah and Buddha were Talking

You know what I think sometimes? said Allah to Buddha, Of course you do and yet you don't. I think I gave this gift of language because you have a uniquely humanurtured gift of comprehending and transposing and translating languages thru-out each and all Earth tribes, but primally amongst your anthro-Allah loving selves. Buddha thinks we under-invest using this cooperatively intended gift to speak clearly and honestly with candid integrity about what "I need" and what "I really do not need more of, or any longer." Perhaps at work in your vocation you get along confluently, most folks act professionally and politically and socially and economically and ecologically and healthily correct. Yet, notice next time perhaps even within yourself, within your family, with your spouse, with your kids especially with those teenagers, how much time do we invest prattling happily and sometimes ranting unhappily along about what we want or wish for, don't want and would never care to see or hear again; now compare to your investment conversing about what you most need and what you most critically, yet also chronically, most specifically do not need in your healthy intended and practiced life, and in your death-trending non-life of false wealthy abundance, yet ultimate loss. We might turn to our professional colleague at work say "I could use a cup of coffee." but we would probably never say, "I need more stimulants in my system or this situation will put me to sleep." We might say to our oppositionally obsessed daughter, "If you throw that one-eyed Zoe doll down the stairs again in the middle of this clunky throbbing night, you can predict its immediate demise in the trashcan of life!!!" but seldom think to say "I need for us to figure out a less alarming way for you to wake me when you need my attention, and for you to let me sleep when you merely want me." Why are we more comfortable telling our life partners, "I don't feel like it tonight" and less comfortable adding, "but a back and foot and scalp massage would be heaven." Seems like we would all be somewhat healthier wealthier and wiser if we were more articulate about our bodies' "need" language while less reductively focused on our little ego's cognitive "want" "don't want" messages. And, for that matter, Allah adds it might be nicer if your national and global political conversations followed this same trend of ecological body integrity with Buddha-mind communication patterns. Rather than "If you keep killing those innocent victims, I'm going to spank you and starve you." as if sociopathology had not had quite enough of both rather than co-mentored love, what about, "I do not need you to lead us toward more death. I do need you to do what we elected and supported and expected you to do, to facilitate positive health and wealth trends for me and all Earth's Tribes, for life, and all Time's incarnating needs for health right now, through future's timeless generations, positively trending outcomes rooted in needs and not needs, not-so-much about what you want and don't want for your small-minded anthro-exclusive future." Our global Buddha body, Earth as Sanghakaya multisystemic incarnational economic school of ecojustice, evolves religious as cultural sanity screaming for cooperative healing while speaking PC through appropriate channels how nice we could all be through competing for wealth by following Allah's nature and nation-building rules of healthy reason, inclusive organic seasons without threat of treason. Our bodies need to compete cooperatively even more than our minds want to cooperatively compete. It We IS ISn't crazy sane to not to kill communicate against with those you "Allah "Allah creation has has not created" destroyed" without with first terminally sharing killing Allah Allah creation's beauty and joy ugly and sorrow hospitality ballistics generosity competitive selfishness integrity. mendacity. When economic interest in ego exceeds equivalent value for eco-logical interest and comprehensive assurance coverage in healthy wealth optimization, then ego mind operates out of cognitively dominant "want" messages rather than bodily-centered "eco-need" messages, rich environmental responses, and healthy dialogue of about and for optimizing life trends. How could we incarnate create regenerate economic or psychic wealth and health not eco-logically balanced, positively trending toward "beloved" or "climax" healthy-wealth nutritional optimization meeting Continuous Quality Improvement Permacultural Standards of Positive Design and universally-uniting, integral, dialectic Development? And, even if we could, Buddha body would hate it and Western mind would disrupt into further cognitive-reductive dissonance, rather than this emerging eco-consciousness of Allah's incarnating mind as body-wisdom, seeing while seeking continuous religious experience.
