Practicing Positive Psychology

Today we hear Positive Psychology is hot. To not agree is to be both negative, and a snot; too cognitively dissonant arrogant and dino-snore-a-lot. When your loved one tells you, for the thousandth time, "You never listen to me" you have been invited to a challenge of double-binding negativity. You will not find it helpful to respond that you often listen, quietly disagree, and proceed along your positive intended way. Your family bond will not grow ripe with healthy wealth by responding "I hear, listen, consider your dissonant perspective, and find it unpersuasive that I should change to join your comparative insanity." How much simpler all these positivist 'ologys, logic and its logos mythic roots, would be, if Einstein's Theory of Relativity had been called something more operatic, like "PolyTheorem of PrimalRelationality." How many deeper roots would feed Positive Psychology if we could understand Positive functions of Cognitive Dissonance, if we could find Full-Live MetaSystem surrounding Half-eviL Reverse-Temporal-DecaySystem, learn contention knocking on contentment's door of awareness, learn longing's silent scream for belonging bicamerally balanced. We listen with our Cognitively Dissonating Deductive Left, but we health-hear with our Positive Self/Other Inductivizing Right. Sanity begins where insanity leaves off. Rational minds work to retain coincidental analogical confluence, bi-reiteratively multisystemic Relational Balance. Dr. Jaynes' bicameral balance meets Mr. Bucky's polypathic Universal Intelligence, Synergetics translated into relational self/other cooperative integration. Co-arising coherency of Right-Left self-consciousness embraces cognitive/affective dissonance for deductive purposes, while cognitive/affective Right-brain confluence conjoins Positive Psychology with Positive Deviance Theory to sum our squares and Fullerian cube roots and forming systems, equals: Zero-Sum ecological Win-Win therapeutic harmony, economic equivalent gift-it-forward life transactions of nutrient healthy wealth of superconsciousness. EcoTherapy is Positive Psychology's mutual mentoring praxis of Permaculture Design, with intent toward Climax Beloved Community optimization, sustainable for at least Seven Generations of Earth's DNA/RNA life. ReGenerating revolutionary recycling systems articulate Universal Intelligence of Bicameral DNA/RNA temporally unfolding fractal-harmonic syntax. Nature, including humane nature, character, intelligence, information, evolves DNA, thus Elder RNA-rooted, code as Prime Perennial-Fractal, the four seasons of Alpha-Omega TippingPoint reasons. Elder Right temporal brain function reaches back to RNA's static/synaptic chronic/critical ecological paradigm of consciousness, deep coincidental learning, co-arising ecological paradigms of intelligent love, stimulus-response as before-after gestalt dynamic positively induced development, values, norms, health as wealth, synergetic integrity of thermodynamic balance, permacultured design and resolution of growth and development cycles and recycles evolving Beloved, out of cognitively dissonant "still-not-colistening", Communities and Guilds in-process. All this wealth of information hiding inside the Emperor's outside-in-visible deductive clothes, turning inside-out and upside-down toward co-balancing integrity, deferred mutually subordinate dominance, of Left-Yang's deductive power conjoining Right-DoubleNegative Yin's inductive flow, co-arising Positive/Negative confluent/double-dissonant super-syntaxed "Yes dear, I am listening both to you and to my self, still learning how we can both win sustaining love's reiterative game of positively cooperative redundant spiraling multiculturing healthy life."
