What Are We Learning
What have you learned from your family experience
that influences your position
on public health and safety,
national health defense
and economic offensives you might propose
for healthier individuals
and even planet Earth, hopefully?
Could you give me an example
of what might qualify as a politically satisfactory answer
Well, I parent four teenagers,
three require special support environments and resources
to foster improved learning outcomes.
I have concerns
none of the schools,
from the most elite private
to the mental health specialized therapeutic public,
seems to have deep learned their way into
how to avoid adversely depressing and repressing my kids' growth potential
into a more polyculturally articulated
and multisystemically accessible
self-optimizing ego-healthy mindbody,
much less an effective communicator,
much less an effective deep ecosystemic listener and learner.
We each seem to start into our learning lives
thinking and feeling deductively and inductively
with all senses listening for dialects of feeling and function
until our enculturing institutions
interrupt with mental-physical health disservice,
suboptimizing with more didactically addicted
deductive memorization performance outcomes,
thereby missing days and years of lifetime healthy cooperative political
and interpersonal relational communication potential
while investing in competitive excesses
of Left mindbody dominant commodification
of learning how to live into life's most regeneratively
anthro-preoccupied not-listening opportunities,
we accept unacceptable risks of unbalancing angers and fears
as anthro-supreme species
sharing primal bilateral temporal intelligence
with all DNA/RNA syntaxed living cells
We are of and for Earth's polyculturing cooperative relationships
with internally symbiotic dipolar nondual ecosystemic functions
of purpose and deep regenerative meaning.
I didn't pick that up in school,
nor have my kids found any support for
this way of enculturing holistic health
to regenerate polyculturally optimal outcomes.
a health insurance company,
knows more about mindfulness training,
health and self-care as Earth-care consciousness,
while our schools,
which could be our kids' healthy-love-of-polycultural-learning assurance incubators,
focus more on anger and risk management.
I'm wondering if anything like this comes up from your experience
of how our social
and sometimes even our "health" institutions
do not practice basic mindbody health-medicine principles
of cooperative ecoconscious relationships and transactions,
or aspire to regeneratively optimize future cooperative learning outcomes.
Why isn't human history taught
as our still-evolving language
and nutritional enculturation
and toxic deculturation
ecopolitical healthy love-as-learning
EarthTribe's re-creation story?
