Eternal Calm
He did not suppress his yawn.
This evening
I made him listen to my long monologue
On universal disharmony
Advocating the need for discipline and accord.
I should have allowed him to speak,
I have heard his talk on death.
The listeners were left spellbound,
They seemed more...Read More

As I get closer to turning seventy, I'm now looking closer at my longevity.

I find a great deal to learn
from Republican 
Nihilistic Evangelical Rapture
about how to lose eco-political sanity
and lose ecological health.

It feels important to remember
and respect
basic nutritional dumping facts
of public health through reinvestment
and global climate pathology through extraction
blame and shame

Some movements smell,
but...Read More

Premium Member Citizens DisUnited
Awhile back,
in the Dred Scott decision, 
SCOTUS denied rights of citizenship
to people of color
"as a subordinate
and inferior class of beings,
who had been subjugated
by the dominant race..."

So, we need not dig too deeply
to rediscover where straight white male supremacists
and systemic racist...Read More

Premium Member Seasons of Life and Death
Life or death
is a left-brain dominant cultural assumption,
While right-brain is more comfortable
with life and death,
health and pathology,
nuance of co-arising dipolarity.

shout for sustainability!
Ecologists calmly advocate
polycultural energy resilience
to recreate wealthier dynamic ecosystems

While warm psychologists
and embracing psychiatrists
listen for co-relational resonance within 
and between...Read More

I really do believe so.
When one candidate suggests
we eat dead bodies?
I have heard not one hue and cry!

How about Uncle Timothy?
Aunt Daphne might be delish.
Humanburgers  will replace

But no, we squeal like piglets,
over plastic bags and straws.
While gnawing on our beloved...Read More

EarthMothers instinctively birth natural economists
advocating fiscal conservancy
because we cannot sustainably give
beyond nutritional elements we are cooperatively taking in.

what it feels like to slow-grow a robust regenerative economy,

To give birth to healthy robust hope,

To invest in bilateral...Read More

Premium Member Walking While Reading
I was walking while reading
because this had been recommended,...

actually more like required reading
while walking,
rather than too much blindly reading
while passively impassively sitting through
Earth-reflective stalking exercises

For improving body health
and soul wealth,

Not that these are really two different things,
detached from some primal...Read More

What if we live in and out
among and yet autonomously
with and sometimes against
LeftBrain dominant enculturation?

Is it a virtue
of legal, or just plain logical, process

Regardless of therapeutic opportunities to communicate dissent,

How do we get to restoring democratic energy justice
for all EarthTribes?

Especially when those not originally enfranchised
in our GoodHealth Constitutions,
like slaves
like non-patriarchal

If indifference was a virtue
As some claim it to be
Then why doesn’t it serve humanity?
Indifference, unlike love
Is like a plastic plant
Standing perky
Although not growing
Neither roots nor leaves
Let alone fruit
And some fooled by its appearance
Will even want to water it
But the...Read More

A pandemic Christian evangelical error
disparagingly contrasts gospel privileged scripture,
root of all-powerful faith,
with inferior and erroneous Eastern religious traditions,

Like Buddhism
and Taoist
sanctuaries of well-governed enthusiasms,
and Hinduism,
and mysticism
and humanism.

Such prejudice assumes each of these spiritual/natural nondual traditions
intends to also be passionately rooted

In passionate psychology,
powers of proactive compassion
are generally thought of in personal

interdependently relational

large-scale powers for proactive compassion

It's almost Christmas
when the news caster abouter announces
