by my nephew
for an essential reading list
for PermaCultural Therapeutic Design,
my Taoist thoughts went back
when Earth produced a theologian,
Dr. Thomas Starr King (1824-1864)
reaching out for non-violent dialogue
across all global healing cultures.
This 1800s Dr. King
would-be global peacemaker
and reconsidered humanity
both Universalist YangLeft Dominant
and Unitarian YinRight Prominent,
noticing and appreciating EcoCreations
to an Integral PermaCulturing Designer
and Restorer of EarthJust Climates,
WellTimed Nutrition Spaces,
Secular/Sacred Health/Wealth BiLateral
To everyone's ecologically cooperative relief,
this Dr. King had a sense of humor,
more resonant with MoonLight seasons
than SunBright reasons
Speaking of power and energy and light,
"The Universalists...believe that God is too good
[healthy, wealthy, beautiful, trusting, radically democratic Lover]
to damn us forever;
And you Unitarians believe you are too good
[wealthy beautiful resonantly trusting and healing Creation]
to be damned.
[to be pathologized,
victim of toxic apartheid,
degenerative monoculturing climates
This Dr. King
spoke with a polyculturally developed sense of irony,
and died one year before
the first National Conference of Unitarian Churches
discussed merging YangLeft Universalists
with YinRight Unitarians,
Like liberal Yankees
and confederated Rebels
of good faith ecological relationships
preaching non-violent good governance
to those who would post-UnCivil War listen
with positive attitude gratitude,
active polyculturing co-passion.
These EarthPassions percolated for another sixty-five years,
until Frederick May Eliot
mediated patriotic Unitarian Associates
of these Uniting States
for healthy democratic becoming
one cooperatively co-invested health sanctuary
Inviting a serious,
and sometimes more light-hearted
and bicameral even-handed
uniting Universalist global wealth redeemers
with Unitarian interdependent web of secular/sacred human
Eliot's Commission on Appraisal,
covenant for global truth and reconciliation,
reported "Unitarians should
[could, might like to]
free themselves from the sectarian spirit
partisan, monoculturing nature]
by cooperating more fully
[actively win/win nonzero-sum, regeneratively]
with other denominations,
[good and healthy faith communities],
by taking part in a growing [polycultural] movement
of the Free Church Fellowship
[for non-violent communing sanctuary design
and cooperative development]
And by entering whole heartedly
into the worldwide [swelling/shrinking ecopolitical] fellowship
of religious liberals
in many lands."
[protected by health conservational EarthTrust.]
Since the 1930s,
Free HealthSanctuary Democratic Communication
has further responded
to Buckminster Fuller's ecological/theological "Synergetics,"
to Marshall Rosenberg's "NonViolent Communication,"
to Joanna Macy's Work That Reconnects
through "Active Hope,"
to Iain McGilchrist's "The Master[Mistress] and His[Her] Emissary,"
to Deb Dana and Stephen Porges'
"The Polyvagal[cultural] Theory in Therapy:
Engaging [Inviting] the Rhythm of [win/win cooperative] Regulation."
To this Taoist GreenDemocrat,
all these additional inside-voiced layers
of group/systems attachment
to non-violent human compassion theory
yet distract from healthy life's outdoor sense of mystical humor
implied in LaoTse's Sonnets for Self/Other
Ego/Eco GoldenRule co-governance,
Earth BiHemispheric Democratic
outside as inside climate therapy,
above as below,
future image as past memory,
ecosystemic as ego-resilient
green wealth as red-blooded health.
