I guess you could say I'm a bit mundane,
Old, overweight, shrinking and inane,
I love poetry, crime fiction and astrology
(What do you mean, "That's a tautology!").
My ideas, that I'm not actively chasing,
Are about etymology, salt, and horse racing,
I feel disbelief, indignation...Read More

Kabir II 57
What are mental aberrations when in a deep state of meditation by focusing on rejecting all thoughts and senses, and allowing the body to exist autonomously?

To call them visions is to purely describe the minimalistic tangible visual evidence of the...Read More

The Rich And Famous
Written: by Tom

Too many view themselves as being upper crust,
just because they have more money than another.
But does that mean they deserve our undying trust,
with opinions they attempt to sway or smother. 

They exist on a pedestal...Read More

A peaceful dawn in a verdant rainforest 
Stretching and lowering their head submissively
Two tiger cubs in a fun frolic play and kittens yowl
Actively under trees, limbs, and leaf brushes passivity
Hugs, scratches, bites, and tiger growls 

Along comes a black heart...Read More

Premium Member Essential Reading
When asked
by my nephew
for an essential reading list
for PermaCultural Therapeutic Design,
my Taoist thoughts went back
to Unitarian-Universalist
Yin/Yang pre-history,
when Earth produced a theologian,
Dr. Thomas Starr King (1824-1864)
reaching out for non-violent dialogue
across all global healing cultures.

This 1800s Dr. King 
would-be global peacemaker
noticed
and reflected

Healing Win/Lose EgoNomial Intent

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.

So sings my mitochondrial DNA
when I listen deeply
to all prior matriarchal regenerations
speaking in still 
soft 
timeless win/win voices

Especially about polycultural outcome opportunities
and monocultural injustice 
incoming risks.

What About the Bermuda Triangle
There are places within this world
which are filled with paranormal mystery,
arousing curiosity and looking into their history.

The Bermuda Triangle arouses much interest
as the news spins stories of missing ships,
actively seen on radar and then no more blips.

Skies over this phenomenal...Read More

Premium Member Caring
Do all people we deem “friend” truly care
about us? Probably not. Do we
care deeply about each of them?
Perhaps we don’t! How dare I
say that? Do all of us
sacrificially
consistently
actively
show we
care?

I heard from PrimeAryan DT
that socialism kills nations.

I thought it was fascist totalitarianism
that killed nations,
the lack of democratic social intelligence,
social investment,
non-violent communication,
restorative, 
therapeutic 
win/win social justice.

who seemed ancient and fragile to me,

Premium Member Enough to be Dangerous
Do you know the concern?
"S/he knows just enough
about a through z
to be dangerous."

I am uncomfortably familiar
with this analysis,
a weapon often wielded
from ivory towers
overly influenced by ideology
masquerading as theory
rooted in statistically measured experience,
severed from historical-cultural,
biological-neurological indigenous context.

Even so,
one feeling I am...Read More

Atheism,
for a Taoist
and for UUs
and Zeroists,
and Not ZeroSumists,
and Positive ZeroZone Therapists,
is synonymous with Agnosticism
and maybe Gnostic BiCameral Consciousness.

Healthy skeptics,
but not pessimists,
Agnostics understand how win/lose leftbrain either/or dominant

confuse Atheism with AntiTheism
but do not internally suffer from these competing

Premium Member Power Sources
Some see power as personal,
feel light as intimate belonging,
interpersonal hope and faith and love.

For these,
life's experience and memory
are theologically driven from above,
explained,
hoped for,
and feared when lost,
abandoned
neglected
repeatedly abused.

Others hear power as planetary evolution,
sometimes climaxing in intense revolutions
of painful loss
and gainful passion

I honor the day of Canada’s birth
on July 1, 1867, a nation rooted in democracy
began to grow and flourish
irrigated by its people’s sweat, blood, and tears.
I’m lucky to have inherited that Canadian culture
rich with tradition and diversity.
For liberty’s an unequivocal...Read More

Premium Member Something Borrowed
My grandmother often advised
"no need to borrow trouble."

My grandmother-in-law warned
"you don't need to look for trouble
because it will find you,"
which seems a better fit
with my own experience
with actively soliciting trouble,

for discounted risky value,

Why is music
more emotionally important than rhetoric?

Why is grace-full dance
healthier than verbal prance?

So many public health questions
more important than private answers...

And yet, has not actively opened our sanctuary

Ever wonder if someone 
you're talking to is actively 
paying attention, or simply 
watching your lips move?

in perspective for someone impervious
to common sense? Words go into

Life is a scrimmage for eternity,
At birth we’re put in the game,
and how we perform is crucial.

And even though we may fumble, God will forgive,
