Strong Health Defense

Avoiding risk
is not always the best way to feed
and assertively, but not overbearingly, water
resilient opportunities.

Patriarchalism
is not always the best way to build
resilient ecofeminist cooperative opportunities.

It may too often be exclaimed,
“The best offense
is a strong defense.”

Defensive strategies
begin to look remarkably aggressive,
even left-brain overbearingly offensive.

I don’t recall the reverse claim,
“The best defense
is an affluent
effluent offense.”

Probably because this is not necessarily true
to resiliently healthy experience.
Mosquito repellent bracelets
seem more sustainably effective
than bombing my entire lot
in predator/prey life
with toxic insecticide.

And yet,
I’m not sure that the more popular aphorism
is any more true or false.

The most resilient and powerful defense
against suffering and loss,
against climates of pathology,
already feels too self-isolating
timid
lacking in healthy robust curiosity,
too anti-degenerative
to actively regenerate hope
and cooperative faith
and win/win co-passion
and gratitude
for courage to face new frontiers of awareness
with those
and that
now less known,
less connected,
less resiliently
resonantly etched into our global gratitude
attitude experience.

If we were to re-image offensive strategies
to grow win/win economic/political gratitude
as Yang-strength,
universally
mutually empowering;

And, Yin-effluent flow
as defensive ecofeminist opportunities,
invitations to ease off the left-brain dominant
competitive
either/or thinking
enculturing win/lose
inflaming gas,
We might find ourselves with feminists
resisting patriarchal extraction histories
predicting only future Loser economics
and Loser ecological disempowerment
of otherwise healthy robust futures,
Yang-offensive and Yin-defensive balance.

But, resistance without resilient win/win offensives
does not effectively balance our tipping point
double-bound offensive/defensive optimization,
inviting us toward cooperatively-held articulate
resilient healthy purpose,
robustly wealthy sacred meaning
experiencing Yang-health
as Yin beauty-wealth,

Universal offense-wealth
as unitarian defense,
slow-grown communal
ecofeminist
ego-political win/win integrity;
healthy-wealth optimization,
right-brain prominent enculturation,
resilient both-offense-and-defense resonance.

A frog in a patriarchal well
does not know the great ecofeminist sea.
