Premium Member Healing Earth
Resilient phylogeny is to resonant homology,

As neurological balance
is to psycho-sociological harmony,
as cooperative economics
is to democratically compassionate politics.

Polyvagal neurological win/lose connections
and win/win polypathic/polyphonic reconnections
and lose/lose disconnections
predicate socio-psychological healthy v pathological choices
for ego-centering rooted in eco-systemic resonant wealth 
for multiculturing health optimization.

"What I want in life is compassion,
a flow between myself and others

Premium Member Anger Management
I'm rereading Marshall Rosenberg's chapter on Anger,
The big challenge for nonviolent communicators.

Marshall, a StraightWhiteMale psychotherapist,
repeatedly refers to feeling disappointment
escalating into Loser-shamed anger
sometimes further escalating into defensive
red-hot blaming Rage
risking lose/lose nihilistic outcomes for oneself
and anyone in our self-righteous
zealous
fundamentally egocentric paths.

The Man from Darwen

Came there a man from Darwen,
In the heart of the Lancashire Hills,
A Town of industrial landscape,
Coal Mines and large Cotton Mills.
These times of hardship and struggle,
Left its scars upon the folk,
Working class agents of Victoria,
Amidst black chimney...Read More

Premium Member Planning for Grace
Last night I arrived very late
for a GRACE planning team meeting.
GRACE's mission advocates against
all things racist,
whether systemic
or the normal chaos of antipathy
and sin 
against everyday non-violent win-win
choices

Pandemic
Solo it came; embedded in the droves.
They covered bodies with once whitened sheets. 
Assembly lines carry them to the stoves.
Stench of death and burnt flesh along the streets.

I am doubtful now of ignorance’s bliss.
Red flag; just another blown forewarning.
Death; ‘tis...Read More

How much simpler
and yet vastly more complex,
diversely resonant,
past decisions to hire the credentialed professional elite
also choices not to hire a charismatic
brown-skinned
ecofeminist,

And how much more resilient
urgently cooperative
corporate win/win covenant repercussions might have been
if we stopped compartmentalizing,
and started intersectionalizing,
creolizing
transubstantiating
synergizing
integrating

co-arising and co-gravitating

Premium Member Let's Be Kinder
In his essay "Let's Be Reasonable" 
Rev. Todd Eklof [The Gadfly Papers]
reduces reasonable to logical;

This is a common left-brain dominant error,
confusion between deductive premises
and coldly reductive conclusions
calculated assuming cause v effect linear formulas
more than feedback loops
of complex neurological relationships,

Premium Member Sabbath Culture
Watching this new sabbath begin,
darkness born of dusk,
dawn birthed by night,

I wonder about comparisons
between everyday logic
and systems restoring thinking,
feeling primal relationship
between verbal analogic
and nonverbal spacetime metaphor,
4D revolving EarthMaps,
seasonal/fractal missions
all designed for deep healing

between linear cause-effect sequential history
and resonant/dissonant

Premium Member Ecological Prosperity
Growing up on God's impoverishing family farm,
he learned to hide his work
in tissues of unearthly privacy.

Regenerating in Earth's richly resonant nutrition,
she recovered her playful avocations
in ecosystemic response
to global over-grasping issues
of under-conscious
her/his-storied
positive domesticity

Over-privatized
so powers under-privileged;
personalized
so shy of compelling
retelling publicity

Premium Member Homage to Integrity
Mental and physical health
require,
and contribute to,
Integrity.

Integrity has two faces,
internal and external,
climates dominant and subordinate,
cultures poly-inclusive and mono-segregated,
bilateral frames of reference
dipolar
co-arising
appositional.

Internal integrity
anticipates left with right hemisphere confluence
and is anxious when diverse left v right experiences
unfold cognitive/affective dissonance,
diminished think/feel resonance,
fear and anger

A rational frame of reference
for multicultural Taoism,
preferred by UniversalYang
and deferred with UnitarianYin,
regards experiences of systemic racism
and white straight male privilege
not only within each individual,
but within each community,
each faith community,
each ecopolitical energy-organizing sector
across this global EarthTribe.

This Taoistic reason/feeling approach

Premium Member I Wonder Why
I wonder why
this perennial topic of death
does not interest me

Even my own
evokes cold detachment
rather than invoking warm 
heated attachment to denial
anger
disappointment
body betrayal.

Death cast in dull shadow
by my fascination with my own mortal
double-boundaried life

Which came from lives
not mine
and returns,
fades
disperses? perhaps,
explodes?
implodes?

My sanctuary
includes an anti-racism team.

Our closest synagogue ally
has an anti-defamation league.

Both my Team
and our League
are against contempt for Earth

We are composed of anti-patriarchal feminists
not against non-violent actions,

Fight for freedom

I dreamt we cut their heads off
The counter-revolutionaries who resisted
The rising of the masses

Their era ended
Our liberation began
Then reality time chimes in
Is this new world at hand?

Nor in others fighting back

Alan Simpson,
a Wyoming Republican,
not known for his socialist ways
nor his sacred communion means of public discourse,
cried out in our Great Dark Night
of white bold

"Money's dominance over politics
isn't merely one problem of many
our country faces.
It is the problem!"

Premium Member Restoring Deeply Conservative Progress
Our old nemesis,
capitalism,
is much older than democratic theory,
and even older than profoundly resilient democratic practice,
which is rather like Christianity--
often communion preached
and seldom democratically and multiculturally proficient,
fruitful,
viral,
contagious,
multiplying economic loaves
and politically empowering fish.

Capital-rooted values
derive from tribal chiefs,
elite healers and clergy,
and, more recently,
in...Read More

EarthMother's unwilling Emissary
asked each faith community
and patriotic party
what they thought and felt
about God's preferential option for the poor,
despised,
criminal,
homeless,
wounded and powerless women and children,
physical disabilities,
sick,
terrified,
rabid with anger and fear,
enslaved,
addicted,
insane.

As traumatized as I am
by the history of organized elitist creeds,
including religious and judicious,

I am even more terrified
by my experience of disorganized unnatural spirituality,
dissociated bicamerality,
unenchanting mono-laterality,

anthropocentric chauvinism,
inhumane unnatural straight white male business as usual...Read More

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..."

Fear of personal
and disconnecting
ego-success
feels reasonable to me

Too much adulating feedback
from old friends vaguely envious
that I would place myself above 
and before them
sacrifices integrity
more resonant with us,
immersed in ecosystemic success,
embodied health,
resilient Earth-rooted wealth.

Children
especially straight white physically-privileged adolescents,
have grown self-empowerment rights
