Old Run Ins And Outs

Ran into an old friend just the other day. Has to have been 50 years another way. She made that big mistake of asking what I've been up to. Well, I've been studying systematic multicultural theology and, then, regenerative ecology. Oh, that sounds nice. Probably keeps you out of trouble. Yes, well, I guess it is nice, but not trouble-free. Another word might be "athletic." Like soccer? More like gymnastics and long distance running. Anyway, have you ever heard of Process Theology? It has a first Christian cousin in Creation Theology, Brought to us sytematically by Matthew Fox, but also rooted more experientially, synergetically, by both Eastern and Western nature/spirit mystics. Well, sounds like I have some homework to do--to catch up. Just Google process theology or creation theology or, better, both and see if you can see positive correlations for those with ears to hear. Ok, well, thanks. I'll get right on that. Then, look up regenerative ecology, restorative environmental justice and try creation ecology-- and maybe positive psychology's Theory of Original Matriarchal Attachment. See if they all sound alike more paradigms for sprouting polypathic feeding watering nonviolent ecological communication and experiential regenerative theology. Well, my goodness! Look at the time... Exactly, the space within bilateral time, Here within timeless Now, Yang strong atoms Yin flowing spiraling strings of waves, LeftBrain dominant monoculturalism undermining RightBrain prominent multicultural communication unfolding in-between chaos and complexity Alpha and Omega One and Zero bionic bilateral double-binding bicameral natural ecological egos and spiritual theological-neurological eco-habitats sacred within as climates secular without health reforming multicultural wealthy experience, collateral compassions of Zero NonSum-ologies; Each of these WinWin strategies for healthy resilient systems. Sorry, had to check my texts. Kids, you know. Never stop being a responsible parent or friend. Were you still talking? If a verbal communicator stands or sits or squats in a forest of non-listeners, is the cooperative communicator speaking or just talking within myself?
