BlackTaoism v WhiteFascism

Taoism
is about LeftBrain Win/Lose Yang
when divorced from Win/Win Yintegrity

And also about
Yang/Yintegrity
Ego/EcoSystemic
bicameral
multiculturally Green
democratic Win/Win
BiPartisan Communion

Taoism
is about Yang personal experience
of feeling self-satisfied,
healthy EgoCentering

And also about further Yintegrity needs,
ecosystemic challenges
for resiliently optimizing wealthy EarthComPassion,
global climate polycultural
health/wealth resonance.

Taoism
is about Yang’s non-violent communication
remembering past win/win health/wealth values
resonantly felt Truth
and democratic TribalTrust;
multicultural memories
of matriarchal ego-personal experience

And also
about Yintegrally holistic needs
to nurture compassionate
co-empathic multicultural communion,
singing gospel folk dances,
green indigenous eco-communication
re-imaging future win/win wealth resilient
LeftBrain win/lose dominant challenges

Against,
disassociated competitions in-between
cognitive Left/Right affective dissonance
wounding
degenerating Earth’s monoculturing
nationalistic
bipolarizing ecopolitical red climates
of StraightWhite Western
military violent
capitalistic RightWing narcissism.

Taoism
is about why all Earth life-systemic
organic cultures
ask Great Green EcoTransitional Questions

About Yang’s past Change experience
divorced from Yin;
unfettered self-satisfied narcissism
natural/spiritual pathology,
Anti-Yintegral’s Green Communion feelings,
persistent addictions to fear and anger
about LeftBrain monocultural supremacy’s emergent history
predicting BusinessAsUsual
EarthExtractive
fascist FasterSchisms.

What’s In My Soup?

An important political
and economic issue,
at least for me:

What do I nurture?
What do we invest
and reinvest in?

If this Taoist “jaw” of Great TippingPoint Green Transition
toward Earth’s vast climate healthy wealth
must nurture LeftBrain Yang dominant red
Team competitions with,
and not against,
nationalism’s StraightWhiteMale violent privilege,
then how do EarthResidents also,
and more RightBrain primordially,
nurture Earth’s dipolar co-arising recreation?

Do I even try to nurture natural spirit investments,
conscientious re-ligion,
re-connections of
and for
cooperative secular/sacred reconciliations,
natural/spiritual remunerations,
yang/yin bilaterally restoring
Earth’s vast regenerative,
nonviolently communal,
ego/eco-NonZero balancing emergent Zone
of Heaven/Earth revolving

Co-empathic,
co-gravitating,
co-arising dipolar bicameral communication,
polypathic health/wealth developing systems
for nurturing RightBrain mercy
with LeftBrain restorative justice,
cooperative solidarity
with pro-active hope

That our most transcendent ego-liberal freedoms
remain systemically centered
for nurturing Earth’s Great Green Transitional interdependence

Of species,
guilds,
tribes,
forests,
meadows,
of living spirit/nature
ego/ecosystems,

Articulating,
expressing,
reincarnating,
nonviolently communicating
revisions to win/win ParadiseLost
through win/lose LeftBrain dominant

Woundedness,
separation,
deduction,
division,
reduction,
repression,
suppression,
depression

More afraid of lose/lose nihilistic
degenerative futures

Than angry about loss of
WinHealthy Yang Capital CoInvestments
to WinWealthy Yintegrity
of Earth’s Great Reverse
ReTransitional 20/20 AntiPandemic Promise

Eco-nomial-logically ego-renatured
conscientiously re-ligioning
Poli-Nomial-Culturally eco-nurtured

As HeavenLight’s wealthiest EgoPromise
re-nurtures
EarthPower’s healthiest Pleasure.

New MLK Day Revolutions

I have heard almost nothing about New Year Resolutions
this pandemic year;

Although personal sound waves are filled
replete with incomplete invitations
to take better health care
of personal
and social
and economic
and democratic
and public
and green climate nonviolent communication
wealth optimization

As we move post-millennially
and relentlessly,
perhaps as inevitably
as any self-fulfilling NewYear resolute expectation,
standing win/win apart
from ambiguous anticipation thoughts
with anxious feelings,
foreboding fore-tidings,
Right/Left
affective/cognitive dissonance;
fading resonance.

I have,
in this last pre-MLK week,
noticed an upsurge in human striving voices
invoking dark,
globally embarrassing, humor
and gratitude
for President BullHorn
for straight white male persuading
large majorities of Earth’s citizens,
red and green and yellow and orange,
black and mostly white patriarchally privileged
LeftBrain violently red dominant
RightWing wounded and terrifying,

To NewYear discontinue an elitist direction
we don’t want to continue pursuing,
extracting without explicitly agreeing
to democratically forego our constitutional commitment
to a healthy resilient multicultural republic
both polyculturally healthy and safe
for now,
and for all foreseeable future regenerations.

Many 2020s new year roaring revolution voices
seem to assume liberal v conservative choices
are limited to:
If one is good
then the other is bad,
opposites;

Appositionally,
demonstrably,
comparatively,
even consensually,
recognized as not true to personal
politically co-invested democratic experience
when we are discussing liberally loving
healthy
cooperative communication
and conservatively co-investing
in globally resilient public health
and climate WholeEarth safety.

Liberal left wings
and conservation right winged,
and all of us who faithfully remain
middling muddling in-between,
resolve closer to consensually green healing
than viral and climatic punishing pandemics,
ego-inside and eco-outside
our bilaterally integral sensory bodies,

We are
and often are not
re-transitionally resolved
for personal health
and/or public ecopolitical safety
sacredly cooperative Vocations.

When I feel healthiest and safest,
in this another new year,
in this early decade of Roaring BullHorn 20s,
is when I step outside
to listen for voices
of disenfranchised trees,
scolding squirrels,
babbling brooks,
rippling rivers,
surfing seas,
light conversations
between blue sky and cirrus clouds,
rain on rocks and rolling thunder
anthems

Sung in response to my questions
about what is healthy liberal YangLight
and conservative YintegrityPower?

And what is more Trumpian
nationalist
elitist Republican
pathological would-be autocratic fascism,
worship of richly narcissistic wounded
persons of exorbitant interest,
punishing power,
uninformed dissonant delusions,

Where StraightWhiteMale privileged
capitalist corporate minds
have falsely advertised resilient
and resonant bicameral fortunes
toward nationalistic
militaristic extractive wealth,
not so much durably thriving health
and safety through defensive win/lose strategies
strong pro-active
non-connective
violent colonizing aggressions
for mutual lose/lose
predator/prey assured destruction.

Sometimes Earth’s January voices
seem to predict
and celebrate
full climaxing
resiliently thriving healthy wealth.

Sometimes they warn of wounded and broken
personal and public,
social and political
and economic monocultural
non-MLK celebratory pathology.

But,
most of this NewYear resolving time,
especially when I’m working on MLK-Era
Revolutionary Green Resolutions
for restoring Ego/Earth-balancing Justice,
and WholeEarth Multiculturing Peace,
these nature/spirit,
inside/outside,
ego/eco-voices ignore my quests for wise discernment
because egocentric questions,
provided by past memories and future imagination,
are unworthy of macro-ecosystemic attention.

If the only choice I offer is:
“Should I live in a toxic,
fossil-fuel burning condo
or in a toxic,
fuel-burning trailer park?”

Why would such ancient god and goddess voices
and smells,
sounds and senses,
respond to these unintended wounds
and win/lose competitive broken messes?

Asking for less than wisdom
to always resolve win/win
revolutionary green new era decades
inviting questions and resolutions
exploring
remembering future images
of liberally conserving celebrations.

UnShelved EarthPassions

If I were to step into
and onto
and around
and through,
in and out of WholeEarth
as one ecosystemic
interdependent
unitarian
integral
holistic
holy nature-spirited ZeroZone

Of ego-sheltering identity,
embodiment,
multiculturally emergent incarnation,
polycultural individuation process,

For just one timeless polypathic moment,
I might hear
and feel RightWing religiously-held bad faith,
envy,
chronic win/lose patriarchal anxiety,
straight white male privileged anger,
ego-systemic xenophobic fear

As a ZeroZone therapeutic problem
neglecting win/win polypathic,
polycultural virtues

Of also experiencing LeftWing scientifically-held good faith,
appreciation,
critical joy climaxing win/win matriarchal anticipation,
non-binary multicultural feminist democratic compassion,
ecosystemically polytheistic,
polypathic,
polyphonic,
polyvagal neurological win/win,

Unsheltered,
transparent,
vulnerable,
eternally curious
compassionate Fruits of EarthSpirit communication,

Internally ego-centered
when also timelessly EarthImpassioned

In our personal
and interpersonal
and transpersonal experiential learning ways,

RightWing,
LeftBrain,
Either/Or,
fundamental capitalistic deductive Win/Lose
sometimes overpoweringly violent Red Dominance

Is also premature green
Left/Right bicameral,
double-binary,
balancing
ecopolitical win/win promise
through compassionate Earth-systemic communication

Of curiously courageous Light/Power,
Heaven/Earth,
Scientific/Religious,
ego/eco-revolutionary win/win passions
unsheltered

CoEnlightening
Ego/Eco-empowering
if we were to step in and out
of WholeEarth ecosystemic
integral nature-1/spirit-0 Zone
of ego/eco-cooperatively unsheltered identity,
polypathic co-investment process

Interdependently held
for just one timeless eco-political moment,

We might hear and speak,
experience and know
left and right cooperative,
deductive thought and inductively felt bicameral
health and safety,
compassionate
EarthPeace communication.

Mercy’s UnBlind Justice

I suspect mercy may be more resiliently empowering
for optimizing multicultural health
as compared to uniform law
and ordered, cookie-cutter, justice
unresponsive to ubiquitous mitigating circumstances
of unique spaces
and relentlessly changing times.

Mercy recognizes society’s environmental
historical contributions to loss,
to absence of equitable justice
more aware of each individual perpetrator’s responsibility
to society
to family,
to local community

Society’s justice,
without nurturing
restorative mercy,
speaks decontextualized
un-nuanced authority of capital-measured economic systems
including reasonable and fair expectations
of retributive law,
imprisoning neglect
and sometimes violently punishing order.

I wonder if both justice and mercy
improve therapeutic co-arising potency
restoring merciful justice
AND
revising metaphysically just
equitable
reuniting mercy,
co-redemptively resolving
what Earth has positively conjoined
in thoughtful truth
and felt beauty

Breathing,
re-animating,
enspiriting
inspiring nature’s in and out climates
of seasonal development,
undevelopment,
redevelopment,
anti-development,
pro-development,
fractal phases of leftbrain space
mercifully greeting,
halfway meeting,
bilateral rightbrain TaoTime

With merciful multicultural anticipation,
so less competitive room
for monoculturing white justice anxiety.

Grand Old Trump Party

President Trump,
shortly after his singularly smelly election,
declared emphatic comparisons with Elder Republican
Abraham Lincoln.

Early on,
he described Lincoln as his kindred political soul,
admired mentor,
and the former President he was destined to most resemble
in spirit and success;

Presumably not including assassination
causing an abrupt end to his second term in office,
won by a landslide–
even if mainly because the ancestors of many Trump loyalists
were not in a northern political position to vote that year.

More recently,
President Trump,
not one to drop names of people who don’t actually exist
outside his own narcissistic imagination,
relayed the uninvited twitter message,
People tell him,
apparently hoping for the privacy of anonymity,
that he is already the greatest Republican President
in US history,
including Abraham Lincoln,

Who would be so supportive of Trumpian caging of children,
supportive of DT’s mockery
of women,
of people with disabilities,
of those homeless,
of people poor,
criminalized
traumatized by violence…
The list goes on in a remarkably non-Lincolnesque
non-spiritual
unChristian
snarky kind of way.

I imagine the President has heard Lincoln’s observation about trust
so necessary for even a quasi-healthy democracy,

“You can fool all the people
some of the time,
and some of the people
all the time,
but you can’t fool all the people
all the time.”

President Trump isn’t known for being a reader
outside consuming twitter posts
and Fox non-news banners,
but it seems he might have heard,
possibly read,
this Lincoln proverb as a challenge,
or just went with optimizing the promise that he could fool some people
all the time–
good enough for government work.

President Trump made it clear,
even before his Inauguration Day,
that only those people who could appreciate the splendorous beauty
of his naked narcissistic garments and greed would:

  1. get to heaven,
  2. become TrumpMedia empowered
    to hate multiculturally resilient democratic constitutions
    and healthy co-governance systems.

Speaking of aphorisms,
this night of January 6th,
my ecosystemic soul bows to the post-full moonlight
remembering,
“It is always darkest just before dawn.”

I grab onto this hope,
but then realize
Whoever knows this to be true from experience
could only speak this with reassurance
after the first hint of emergent light to the East,
source of sacred light
and EarthlyPower.

Is this as dark as fragile democracy
and patriotic civility must fail
this self-governing experiment?

I can’t quite yet see an Eastern sky of fading stars
although I would love to be vision corrected,
perfected to see light and power
in this climatic polarized time
of win/lose ecopolitical rabidity,
eating our children’s future,
wasting their water
and formerly fertile soil,
and decimating shading fruitful trees.

I can imagine a darker hour.

I can imagine my children
speaking with their grandchildren
about now vanquished land and water mammals,
the improbable kangaroo
and porcupine
and skunk

About former forests of mature trees,
huge plants
strong rooted
and reaching up
and out
much taller than the tallest remaining human;
now aging memories of neighbors lost forever.

Earth’s elder democratic,
healthy,
polycultural,
living biosystems might well survive
our species,

The only one that appears motivated to elect leaders
invested in fooling all the people
all the time,
of ignoring the rights and pleasures,
truths and beauty
of all “lesser” species
and “weaker” people,
now reduced to natural commodities
throughout Earth’s darkest hours.

Violence Separates Us

My senior minister just now
pointed out and in toward Washington
aware of this extraordinary Time.

Violence separates us
from the ordinary
every time,
she speaks from her own experience.

I quickly agree.

Then, notice ways I do not agree
if violence denotes
feelings of violation.

Violence does not separate military time
from ordinary civilian time;
we call that chronic stress disorder,
mental problems,
spiritual issues,
weaponized opposition.

Violence does not separate
poor people
marginalized people
ignored, neglected, and abused species,
animals,
trees,
rivers,
oceans,
soil,
air,
Earth,
from ordinary
Business As Usual Time.

This statement reminds me
of two opposing experiences
in my own life,
white privilege,
where violence is what happens to other people,
and gay male child,
all growed up in a homo-hate environment,
where ordinary violence was about what I deserved
if I were caught
being me.

We want violence to be the exception
to cooperative economics,
nonviolent communication,
restorative EarthJustice politics,
empowerment,
enlightenment experiences
of multicultural healthy wealth,
for all EarthCreatures
and living ecosystems.

Still,
on this dark night
it feels hard to painfully remember
that violence is more exceptional
to ordinary experience
for some Haves
as compared to HaveNots.

Red Green and Blue

Red grows politically angry
about wealthy society’s conspiracy
to keep my ego away
from health’s abundant wealth.

Blue spreads out
economically fearful of anger’s power,
my own loss of leftbrain control,
most times less,
sometimes more
than terrifying competitive victory,
unhealthy monopolization
of light and power,
wealth accumulated
by neglecting
postponing
preempting HaveNot wishes,
accelerating Earth abusive investments
of a powerful
and punishing
highly narcissistic
inhumane
pissed off
judgmentally quivering society,
blatantly unsustainable.

Green ecological relationships
remain hopeful
the conjunction of two polarizing
paralyzing negatives,
anger and fear,
like two negatives
equaling a positive,
will produce healthier wealth,

Not more political envy
and economic greed;
but heavenly peace
and nonviolent EarthJustice.

The Whole Truth

I wonder if it is even possible
for any one person
to tell the whole Truth,

While yet speaking nothing but the Truth,
defined and experienced to date,
so help me Gods and Goddesses,
mountains and rivers,
Earth’s systemic regenerative voices

The whole Truth
explicitly mentioning oppositional not truths
and further refining as yet
not experienced counter-realities
imagined appositional co-defining Truths
equivalent to undefining not
not double-binding
co-refining win/win Truth
bicamerally felt and thought

Which might be a possible way
to retell WholeEarth’s ecosystemic Truth,
but I imagine only S/he
could definitively reply
in Golden Rule
healthy democratic Truth.

I wonder if it is integrally possible
to speak and actively listen
for WholeEarth’s win/win
health wealthiest
resilient Truth

Co-arising vast ecosystemic Presence
and ego-holistic Humility,
especially about my autonomous capacity
to speak timeless WholeEarth Truth.
