Death of Dreams

Our children must not die before their parents or parental dreams die with them. And, for those without children, this is easily empathized because our dreams must not die before we do. Without them our best selves have already left whatever misery and boredom remains for further degenerating absence of purpose. As our own remaining children step into young adulthood wise parents often continue listening for their dreams. In this way, as our own immortal dreams and fantasies fade, younger dreams become our own extending future. Here, in the imperative parental vocation of restoring therapeutic justice and peace to dream love's future, is where I hear resounding Millennial Generation Silence Absence of healthy economic and political dreams for healing over-heated competing climates and landscapes. Restoring inclusive predator and prey justice and healthy pre-recycling parenting and dreams of timeless youth all begin with loving to know Why? If you have parented a healthy verbal two year old, you may remember these challenges of Why and concomitant insufficiencies of time to summarily reply Why not? Why do we dream in language and icons of mythic sacred relationship? And how do pre-linguistic babies dream in resounding color? Why do I dream of a revolving Fallen Eden evolving forest-garden restorative relationships, sacred and secular Paradise Dreams revisited revised rewinding reweaving Millennial ReGeneration Dreams? Healthy ecopolitical futures still Yang with Yin eating from fruit trees of Sacred Loving Dreams despite Secularizing NonDual DarkDeath we cooperatively own and appositionally manage root systemically together ReStorative Yang EdenSpace with ReDistributive Flowing YinNurture Time-- spiraling bilateral timeless Mythic Logosed Times of and for PostMillennial Therapeutic Dreams asking how and when and cooperating where already and why not? A healthy parent must not lose sacred-secular Dreams or we all die dreamless forever, retributing further anger and fearing frustrating injustice language and icons of unweaving Earth fallen eternally to burn for asking God WhyNot?
