Patriotic Parenting

Parents exercising totalitarian rights to abuse and neglect WinWin family governance resolutions for restoring peace with EarthJustice climates, develop unfortunate children perpetually longing for their revengeful turn at decompositional bat. Families pulling through well-anchored weeds of life's, love's, collected and too quickly grown redundant detritus, hoping to break free into a center pond of tranquility, fond spacetime place, to escape entrapment of loss and mere mortal limitations of and for restoring justice to remaining boundary areas of vulnerability, integrity with unsettled loss, degenerating constraints of relationships producing sad loves regret for restraint when letting go of LeftBrain only oars, taking slower time to float more deeply richly co-learning fuller depths and heights within yin willow shrubs reaching down for retribution's thirsty waters And yang cedar canopied giants cooperatively waving up preaching of centering harmonizing restoring winds for late summer morning delight. Parenting is like growing and knowing trees, both forward into regenerative futures and backward down toward their nutritious Elder willowing, culture creolizing, sacred transubstantiating root centers. Vraksha mother tree functions are economically and, more sacredly, ecologically cut and yet politically virgin uncut. Mahiruha people grow both on and in EarthMothers. Sakhi trees have cooperative evolving arms and olive branches and therefore multiculturing sacred roots. Padapa people inhale therapeutic water through our natural root systems as we exhale enlightenment through our languaged falling leaves of abundant harvest trees. Taru trees bring cooling shade to EarthTribes yet heat and fuel through winter's NewMoon lack of bright. Agama parents cannot move their RightWingOnly Exegetical Traditions yet can wave and weave an reweave history through cooperative patriarchal-matriarchal bicamerolling nights. Palasi trees have enlightening leaves so also central common trunks cooperative with healthbound nutrition, up and down toward sacred reforesting root systems. Vanaspati people are those bearing only fruit and harvesting only our most polypathically healthy seeds. Vanaspatya trees fruit and flower and pollinate cooperatively and deflower competitively. Osadhi parents die after fruitful life ripens and before fruits, now beloved, currently repotentiate. Virudhi willow shrubs and Yang cedar forests reach root systemically sacred down toward re-baptismal multiculturing waters, yet preaching up, of, and for reweaving canopied cooperatives of co-gravitating late summer healthy winds. Parents exercising MotherTree EarthRights to restore reforesting justice well beyond center ponds of freedom for wallowing exhalations anticipating cedar's mighty polypathic inhale through waving canopies of shading sunlight, recreating networks of dappling rainbow delight.
