Dear Siblings Three,
At least three of us four
have survived this first round
of sharing our seeing Reds
and our feeling Blues.
At this point
I imagine our eldest sister
reading with interest,
and/or possibly contempt,
and holding all these things
in her heart and mind.
The other three of us,
elder Brother Red,
each have told our stories,
reviewed our positions
during this first year
of the Trump CEO
Public Sector Administration,
I did not find an explicitly stated value
shared by all three of us.
There are, of course,
several values and disvalues shared by the two Blues,
Kerry and me,
and two disvalues
shared by RedMike and BlueKerry
are loss of freedom
and loss of safety.
And, although I didn’t say so,
I would certainly put these two
squarely in my disvalues column
Integrity is a positive value
mentioned by both RedMike and BlueGerald, me.
While BlueKerry does not use the word
I know her well enough to appreciate
this also fits transparently within her values lens
just as venality and mendacious subterfuge
both Blue and Red CoHeld,
and yet too often targeted
by cash-fed multinational media.
as we love integrity
we are also fascinated by its evil opposites,
like Lot’s wife
looking over her climate holocaust shoulder
when it would be way better for her health
to dwell on the PromisedLand in front of her.
emphasize health care giving
and sacred gift economy receiving,
restorative justice and peace,
and ecological education
as therapeutic values.
Mike’s Red response
emphasizes moral code,
law and order,
and defensive technologies and personnel
as more saliently held values.
these are apparent differences of priority,
not necessarily oppositional Win-Lose differences.
Points of contrast invite comparison
and need not predict disloyalty of mutual incompatibility.
To my surprise,
I do see some points where active RedValues
seem to also be active BlueDisValues,
double-binding Win-Lose Boundary Issues:
RED / BLUE
Divine rulership-authority / degenerate monoculturing climates, cultures
Military strength / loss of global and national safety thru violence
Monocultural intent, monopolistic monotheism / sacred polyculturalism
As I look at these three,
they begin to look like three faces
of one tension
within a shared Sacred PolyPathic Intention:
Retributive blood justice through crusading JustWars
Restorative EcoJustice through BiLateral PeaceMaking.
within New Grace Contexts.
From a Red evangelical Christian frame,
this takes me back to Jesus Christ’s
prime Messianic message
Jesus came to save this entire creolizing Earth
through Abba’s restorative grace economy,
baptism through living water and full enlightenment,
healthy light transubstantiating His Judaic Law and Order
retributive sacred justice through blood sacrifice Traditions,
through just-wars and OldSchool self-righteous jihads
and military might of Caesar’s commodifying Win-Lose coin,
colonizing violence all now washing away
by baptism of Messianic-Bodhisattva redemption,
polyphonically sung and danced
by and through rivers of sacred world-citizen enlightenment,
bilaterally cooperative spiritual experience
of polyculturing Grace
for a world so loved
to regenerate Christ’s EarthBound Eden,
First Nation’s creolizing sacred healthy invitation,
multicultures of and for Earth gratitude,
is Second Constitution’s colonizing,
and King James Bible-rooted,
away from monotheistic totalitarianism of Royal Rulership
in favor of polyphonic truths of grace
in democratically evolving cooperative trust,
Father of ego’s Hope,
Son of Earth’s Great Transitional Faith in MultiCulturing Grace,
Spirit of (0)Tao Primal Relationship
through ReStorative EgoPeace
within Sacred EcoJustice
as nature-spirit mentored
So, now I bow
in Taoist-Christian gratitude
for these our gifts
and invite our minds and hearts
to speak through One Grace Way,
bilateral times in loving Life
restoring Eden’s global ReGenesis.
When I was a fundamentalist egocentric child,
I listened and spoke as an innocent child asking Why?
When we ecopolitically mature into One Body of Bodhisattva-Christ,
we speak polypathically
and dream polyphonically
to ask Why Not?
In Jesus’ eternally transubstantiating Name
and Timeless Life,
Your Brother Gerald,
inviting our most generous 2020 responses
of and for mutual democratic trust
in divinely generous truths
we all can share on Earth
as in Eden’s Heavenly Promise.
