We continue to use Her more like a shameful toilet than her delivery system of upstream pure and nutritious drinking water would suggest she had coming from former deep green estuaries Root flow systems sacredly emerging functions from deep EarthMother's darkest primal wu-wei womb, dipolar co-arising health is wealth compunction, conservation. Ancient indigenous wisdom suggests we would be healthier if we didn't dump on MamaEarth, from whom we safely drink, should we hope to keep hunger and thirst at bay with and for future regenerations Pursuing our healthiest dipolar nature-spirit co-arising win/win wealth of ecopolitically enlightened nutrition And empowering fertile poop repurposing for cultivating improved soil health trends Ego- and Eco-systemic permaculturing design, cooperative planning, nonviolent implementation priorities for local community co-invested resilience.
