Liberation’s Pride

I wonder if fully liberated consciousness
can only focus on integrity
becoming;

If partial consciousness
and unconsciousness of left with right awareness
is the default of dis-integrity,
of wandering through detachment
of unwanted apartheid
and mutual apathy
about integrity’s personal
national
global governing pride,
organic capacity to know
and appreciate
with active listening
and non-violently speaking
compassion.

In “Why Liberalism Failed”
Patrick Deneen
wonders aloud
if Business As Win/Lose Usual
is “the dying gasp
of an old white working class
and the lashing out
of debt-burdened youth”
disenfranchised from classic Enlightenment
and Reformation hope
in a global
multicultural climate
of integral healthy-wealth.

Deneen worries,
as does post-millennial emerging consciousness,
We are 20-20 witnesses
of climatic pre-revolutionary ecosystems,
and so, thereby,
victims of individual ego-systemic failure
due to lack of active consciousness,
active hope for liberating organic integrity.

Complex Reformation/Enlightenment,
EitherOr/BothAnd integrity
co-arising democracy’s win/win cooperative trust,
now at risk of becoming
a failed natural experiment
in multiculturing organically proud curiosity,
integral courage
to listen with compassionate attachment
before speaking foolishly
of competitive
detached
mendacious mechanisms.

Human experience is not rooted
in win/lose evolutionary machine models
of robotic mutual autonomy, detached,
Although these attributes
lie within the organic planting and harvesting skill set
of left-brain’s active integrity,
listening for how best to seed
and feast on co-empathic health awareness.

This morning
my Fetal Alcohol inspired
dis-integrity daughter
pulled out her tight white T-shirt,
a gift from her brother’s African-American nurse,
liberated,
proud.

In big black letters,
except for the hot pink cursive “ignoring”
her black on white shirt announces,
defiantly,
“I’D LISTEN TO YOU
BUT ignoring YOU
IS SO MUCH EASIER.”

Polarized self v other,
ego v eco,
left v right,
northern white patriarchal privilege
v southern ecofeminist integrity
of all courageous curiosities
except racist and sexist intolerance,
disintegrity,
does involve and invest heavily in “ignoring”

But, resulting detached and mechanistic models
of win/lose global lack of positive
liberating
progressive
organic experience,
are not easier to consciously perceive,
they’re just less extended family pride awareness,
too disassociated identity
reified from integral roots
of EarthMother’s multicultural compassion.

Integrity as revered and worshiped,
sung and danced
by both health Reformers
and would be wealth EnLighteners,

Left activists
and Right bicamerally active listeners
to proud liberated integral memories
and future climates of win/win images
mapping organically interdependent experience,
political and economic
Yang thought and Yin felt
co-passioning integrity.
