To Attain Earth Care Diversity

"Taoism is solution life concept
teaching Yin Yang balance harmony
harmony in opposites achieved."

Western
common opposition
concept

disharmony
battle of sexes
apparently

male
female held
conceptions

are not complementarily.
This bodes ill for marriage survival
relationships between men

women in a post modern
liberated world where educated minds
meet among gender mine fields?

In rural agricultural
China genders attained harmony
necessary to survive.

Harmony was also realized secret
of survival in high Peruvian Andes
in a time before conquistadores

destroyed evolved harmony
with disease greed blood lusts
destroying agrarian empires.

But before Spanish invaders
laid siege to all not tolerated
local evolved life concepts

invader not esteemed understood.
What was Andean Cosmovision?
Did beautiful inspired philosophy

exist a tinku confirming rules
of life inspiring social harmony?
To attain earth care diversity

to respect nurturing earth mother
communities of people nature
spirits defined by insight shaman

must become souls of enlightenment
accepting mother earth micro-cosmos
as sacred diverse animated harmonious.
