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
and translating languages thru-out each and all Earth tribes,
but primally amongst your anthro-Allah loving selves.
we under-invest using this cooperatively intended gift
to speak clearly
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 healthily correct.
perhaps even within yourself,
within your family,
with your spouse,
with your kids
especially with those teenagers,
how much time do we invest
and sometimes ranting unhappily along
about what we want or wish for,
don't want and would never care to see
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
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,
it might be nicer
if your national and global political conversations
followed this same trend
of ecological body integrity
with Buddha-mind communication patterns.
"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,
"I do not need you to lead us toward more death.
I do need you to do what we elected
and expected you to do,
to facilitate positive health and wealth trends
and all Earth's Tribes,
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.
to not to
"Allah "Allah creation
has has not
Allah Allah creation's
beauty and joy ugly and sorrow
generosity competitive selfishness
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"
rather than bodily-centered "eco-need"
rich environmental responses,
and healthy dialogue
of about and for optimizing life trends.
How could we incarnate
economic or psychic wealth and health
not eco-logically balanced,
positively trending toward "beloved"
healthy-wealth nutritional optimization
meeting Continuous Quality Improvement
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.
