I am holding this page open for eventual use by people coming from diverse backgrounds who would like to relate their practices and understandings of 'life, environment & people' to the fundamental principle of natural inclusion (and vice versa).
If you would like to be included, please get in touch via the 'Feedback' page.

Patience (the elusive quality) - The kind of patience described here, which allows rather than tries to force wisdom to emerge from within and in accord with actual life experience, is very much the kind of patience that is needed truly to understand and appreciate natural inclusion. And it is indeed the kind of patience that is very much lacking in the rush of modern culture to compete and problem-solve at a stroke.

(EXPERIMENTAL) ‘HAIKUS’: OF THE NATURAL INCLUSION OF SPACE AND ENERGY With grateful acknowledgements to Alan Rayner and Zhixing Wang. You will see that I am adopting a flexible version of ‘Haiku’ for the purposes of expressing what is fundamentally simple, but complex in formal language, in as economical a fashion as I can. Please see them as ‘work in progress’ for truthfulness and felicity; other ‘haikus’ may eventually appear…..have a go?
Lime-trees, late summer-drowsy, Full-leaved in evening-sun, prepare for Seed-fall; Survival-capsules, ready to open, shoots sprouting.
Slow river meanders; Light reflects on waters; dark beneath; Tuned-in, see fish, swim.
Pre-dawn Dreaming-Presences from Constellations Reflect cultural-genocide: Even the rocks weep.
Space, receptive, invites; Energy, fluxing, responds. I dance, flow-form.
The Big-bang, then ‘creating’ stops? The void is timeless, always receptive, energy-circulates: Co-creation continues….
A discrete, portable ‘space-bag’ body; An aggregation of ‘parts’, internally-merged, spurious whole? Space renders us dynamically-coherent.
Trees are water-fountains, Communing through (also-sentient) mycelial channels: Mere ‘sticks in the ground’?
Dao, (still, loving receptivity); Qi, (vitalising Life-energy), responds: Mutual inclusions.
A fully-integrated, embodied ‘Unity?’ My ‘Presence’ cannot be so rigorously defined ‘Dynamic-Coherence’ feels better.
Solid, rigid, tight, dead-cog? Me, a machine-like discrete entity, an ‘absolute singularity’? Better: alive, loving, distinctly-unique, relaxed, flowing.
Our Dragon claws funnel energy; As our blood flows, internal spaciousness expands. No-mind flow-movement, non-action?
Gluon particles stick bits? Space, (reckoned inert, discountable) Pools-together.
Merge-fully to ‘Unity’? Complete separation? Human urges, and injunctions, yes: Un-natural extremes make for ‘objectifiction’.
