The Americans

“I do not see what right any one would have
to object to calling this part
[the South American mainland],
after Americus
who discovered it
and who is a man of intelligence,
Amerigen,
that is, the Land of Americus,
or America:
since both Europa and Asia
got their names from women.”
Matthias Ringmann, cartographer, 1507

With the bringing down of statues
and the renaming of sacred temples,
I am reminded of Biblical tearing down
of shrines to Baal,
the turning of politically and religiously correct
cultural backs and shoulders,
hands and feet,
heads and capital investments
away from our own idolatrous sins
of anthro-centric history.

Fair enough,
but, to gaze upon which new god
and goddess?
Green and Black sacred lives,
and red blood of The Lamb
and yellow SonLight
and blue Marian EcoFeminist
and ultra-nonviolet EarthMother Moon.

So many colors to choose
or not to choose
yet avoid new temples to Baal;

A crisis of risk and opportunity
dissonance and resonance
divestment and investment
degenerative and regenerative intent.

A critical discernment
between infamous and famous,
natural pathology and spiritual health.

What surprises me
in this current revolutionary purging
of racism
and violent colonialism
and rapacious patriarchalism
and perniciously predative mono-sexism
and almost hopeless anthropocentrism
is the resilience of Amerigo
[also Americus] Vespucci,
extractively merchanting
and mapping
and scientific explorer source
for “America”.

We had, in the 1500s,
The Americas,
South, then North
invested cartographers
led by Mr. Americus.

Indigenous populations,
now become Native Americans
in North America,
also used maps,
if not externally sketched in two dimensions,
then internally felt in spacetime four
spiraling through green seasons
of nutritional communication
bearing future fruit
and healthy seeds
and wealthy wombs.

Then came the United States of America.
Not, more humbly,
United States of North America
in part
because mappers and Earthologists
were not yet in resonant agreement
about whether this wild new West,
although now clearly not East India
with NearEast Indians,
is one united continent
or now eroded into two.

Here,
anthropoids had a choice,
to honor academic investor Americus
as next to godliness,
or,

Recognizing that fame does not become us,
further invest this new global map
in rediscovered new age Western Earth,
lying in sacred direction of divine sunset
for those cartographers
and astrologers
residing in full moon rising Europa

Before these United States of America
and without the bondage of critical events
in EuroCentric historic story,
neither infamous nor famous
indigenous risk takers
and opportunity seekers
built temples
to deities Amerigo
found idolatrous

Which he might also have considered
as further resourced roots
of gods and goddesses
appropriate to Black and Brown and Green Lives Mattering
to RedBlooded EarthTribes
of saints and sinners
resonant and dissonant

Regenerative and degenerative
cooperatively co-invested and competitively divested

Win/win communal and win/lose capitalistic,
interdependently incorporated
and violently individualistic,

Liberal in democratic love
and stingy with constipated constitutional conservatism,
ecofeminist and egopatriarchal,
Green ReBidenuclear
and Red UberTrumpian.

Statues of,
and temples dedicated to, Americus
are difficult to find,
thus,
even more difficult to tear down.

But,
for those who can recreate such sacred history,
systematic theology,
ecology of healthy and pathological relationships,
neurological psychology,
polypathic muse-cology
of polyphonic risk
and opportunity,
the first moment of cultural exhale
invites individual climate purgation,

This much is obvious
to our natural senses,

However,
our second moment of inhale,
this is my returning revolutionary question,

Will we replace academic extractive Amerigo
with Uniting Global States
of GreenBlue Earth?

Or something more idolatrous
like patriarchal
racist
and revengefully capitalistic
UberTrumpian Baal?
NeoColonizing Hate and Fear?
MonoCulturing Anger?
Lone AnthroWarriors of Narcissus?
Naked White Emperors of Americus?

A NonViolent Glory Prayer

Share with me
this day,
this night,
what will feed my neighbors
as my hungry self.

Forgive me
my theocratic excesses
as I forgive my ancestors
for arguing anthro-hubrisisms.

Lead me
into Earth’s compassion.

Deliver me
into full bicameral consciousness.

For our wealthy bodies
are our healthy minds
eco-political power
as neuro-psychological grace.

Hell of a Heaven

Both paradise and hell
have their detractors.

I find some exaggerated truth
in this belief–
one person’s paradise
is another’s hell.

An eternity
of worshiping an unchanging
omnipotent
omniscient
omnipresent
mono-egotistical god
is not my idea of healthy re-creation.

I have never heard this
in reverse–
One person’s hell
may be required
for another’s paradise.

Heavenly Capital Adoration
begins to sound like sexist
and xenophobic
and anthropocentric rationalizations
of rampant capitalism

Sublimation as extension,
perhaps a corollary,
justifying capitalism and slavery,
violent settlers’ colonialism,
systemic racism
and straight white male
and left brain deductive domination
over who is empowered
to define
and refine
and confine
and double-bind
winners’ Paradise
v losers’ Hell.

If paradise is a healthy
wealthy place to freely live,
And hell is a pathological
divested
infested
under-invested
patriarchal chested
rapaciously unbreasted
place to not be
ecofeminist sufficiently,

Then losing bad humored,
terrifyingly rumored,
anti-organically tumored
hell is a dualistically shocking way
toward winning good humored
terrifically enamored,
organically amored paradise
of integral win/wins;

Economic and political
Neurological and biological
Ecological and geological
Egological and theological

Secular and sacred
Natural and spiritual

Space and time
ZeroZoned and TaoBalanced.

That said,
I doubt
we are without
universal Paradise
as absence of Hellish attributes

Such as autocracy
and kleptocracy,
fascism and racism
are multiculturally known
and felt as hellish.

Healthy democracy
may not be
a monotheist’s Paradise,

Still,
democracy’s win/win potential
for cooperative ownership and management
speaks louder than capitalism’s win/lose reductions
of ego’s participative paradise
in omniscient theocracy.

From Our Front Porch

Porches,
attached decks,
patios,
intimate places for alfresco,

These make a difference
between a fortressed house
and a transparent home,
between an ego castle
and an eco-habitat.

We also spread rhododendron bushes
and hostas,
flowers and ferns
around our stone
and concrete bound foundations.

We want stable defenses
but prefer to camouflage houses
in organic color,
life giving and taking shapes.

These boundary vistas
speak of heart felt reminders
our habitat is rooted
in Earth’s wilderness

In vulnerability
hidden from transparency
except with those who share our sacred space
inside
and upon,
within our co-passioned present time,

Presence bonding,
double-binding,
re-membering past wildness
anticipating future re-generative
re-storative
re-habituating
re-acclimating
re-bounding win/lose less
for more win/win paradise

Just barely 2020 visible
and silently audible
and fresco fragranced
and tasted,
felt
and so nearly touched
longing into belonging
on our cooperatively-owned front porch.

Another Racism Forum

Our Black Lives Matter team was hosting
another monthly forum on racism,
as regularly scheduled,
anti-patriarchal business as usual.

The facilitator opened with a question,
asking for a show of hands.

“If you had to choose
between two nominees for public office,
or any form of executive leadership,
one promising multicultural compassion
and the other pledged to national or corporate strength
of will-power,
one emphasizing win/win care-giving and -receiving
and the other loyally getting the practical
win/lose competitively prioritized jobs done
as quickly as possible,
which would you vote for?”

Republicans in our gathering,
although not many,
favored win/lose realistic and efficient will-power,
and the Democrats favored win/win compassion,
and the large majority of Independents
either didn’t raise their hands at all,
or raised their hands both times,
or raised both hands in a fist
and just left and right retained positions of resistance.

The facilitator followed up,
“Now, what if a Green Party candidate
integrated these two cultures;
Campaigning for a resilient public/private health care climate
of strong-willed compassion
in solidarity with all Earth’s balanced
co-empowering
deep and wide
networked inter-relationships?”

For this, an arcing, unsnarcing, rainbow ovation,
and little more unhealthy
elitist
business as usual.

BlackBird Pie

What do you need right now?

I feel like I would enjoy a long retreat
from human voices,
a free to reverse
get out of jail vacation
from inside voices,
especially my own.

Who would keep you entertained?
Who would you listen to
with affection,
passion,
curiosity,
interest,
engagement,
immersion,
amusement,
without hearing human voices,
including your own?

Maybe I would learn to speak in squirrel scold
and nutty chatter,
in buzzing bee,
whining predative mosquito searching,
warning rattler,
purring and hissing cat,
stoned silly river sibilant
sad satiated sensory sunset
moon rise advent of enlightening mystery
surf breathing ocean, inhaling and slow shushing out
demented and delighted dreamscapes,
hawk warnings
mourning dove reassurances
Earth’s undisputing stillness
still partially well

Blessing silly ravens
cawing out for each other,
“Here we brazenly are, together;”
never having heard of blackbird pie,
unthinkably naive,
unspeakable joy of togathering flight
without tomorrow’s forbidding consequences.

Fragments of Earth

Fragments of voices
like phrases of song
are accepted inside
as not too horribly wrong.

But whole operas,
learned dissertations,
and uncertain scientific recreations
are not accepted outside
without establishment’s substantial reservations.

Indigenous wisdom hears
and reveres interdependent wholeness
while modern patriarchal strength
is willing to sacrifice independent fragments
to preserve overpowering social lengths.

If space is heard
in wholeness
versus inter-connecting fragments,
How different is this totalitarian
transcendent view?
When universal time
expects unchanging chronic wholeness,
constipating stuckness,
rather than interdependent holistic fragments
co-acclimating of and for this WholeEarth.

Fragmented voices
swallow sounds of hopelessly isolated individuals
inside and outside
when not listened to
with totalitarian absence of reassurance,
lack of personal appreciation,
or denied basic healthy identity tolerance.

These sounds
and song fragments
universally disintegrate Now,
against Past,
and Future
dispassioned
cycles of colonizing
violent revolutions.

Voices for fundamentally supremacist religion,
like choices for national monoculturing “patriotism”
sound terrifying when Wholeness
becomes transcendent universal Patriarchy,
kleptocratic,
rather than internally uniting Matriarchy,
messianic.

Voices sung in dissonance-stretching harmonies

[of oxymorons,
re-creative tensions,
dichotomies
between competitive left minds, theoretical,
and cooperative right bodies, experiential,]

listen, instead,
for interdependent global Wholeness
co-arising universally personal multicultural fragments
of empowering integrity,
political symphony,
economic synergy,
artistic epiphany,
capital cooperativity,
universal fragmentary synthesis.

Fragments of voices
like phrases of song
are best accepted inside
like outside
if not too horribly long.

Cultural Blindness

In psychology and communications theory
We notice experiences of cognitive/affective dissonance–

What an anthropologist might note
as a cultural legacy of cognitive blindness–
epically unfortunate events

And a health therapist
might not notice as a pathological orthodoxy
preventing mere health objects of history
from acting and voting
in our own greatest subjective wealth of multicultures
promoting IdentityHealth resiliently-responsible self-interests.

Like voting for DonaldJohn

of the Not Trumpian Orthodox Healthy and Attractive SuperElite
Or, you are in the 1%
but Not Trumpian StraightWhite EgoCentric Myopic PrivilegedMale.

Global Laundry

Laundering wealthy clothes and other valuables,
moments and grand events of baptism,
scrubbing dissonant deposits
into healthy places and times,
is like laundering life with omnipresent love.
When we’re done sitting in solidarity with Earth’s laundry,
it’s probably time to start over,
or succumb to our own stinky mess of pseudo-wealth.

Medicinally,
therapeutically laundering body-minds toward nutritional health
is baptism through redemptive eco-self awareness,
eco-herent eco-operative ecompassioning identity.
A clean chi-body of identity clothes cover
and uncover,
discover,
recover would be co-redeemers of healthy wealth,
in cooperatively naturing systems.

Corporate-sponsored competitive detergents of enculturation
have blinded too many to more permacultural Received Tradition:
human nature evolved through mutual mentorships
of caregiving and nurturance and cooperation
between
within
among
inclusive of all Earth’s Tribes and natural dynamics
and polyculturing systems of mutual solidarity,
like air with fire,
soil with water.

Too often Left-Brain Dominance
has confused our designer attire and attitudes
facilitator scrubbing functions
mutual mentoring
co-redemptive economic EcoLogical Co-Operative Vocations
with those we have labeled
“Sole Proprietor”
and “Owner” of Nature.
These labels tend to come off
during a healthy permacultural stone-washed thrashing
of decompositional analysis.

EgoCentrism
like AnthroCentrism
and its cousins, RacialElitism,
and CulturalTolerance
fail to wash well
for achieving EcoCentric
PolyCultural
Health-Wealth Optimization Outcomes.

HumanHubris confuses ourselves,
trying to wash our Beloved Dog
as if She were a monopolistically-intended Flea,
resulting in great misfortune
especially for Earth’s future grandchildren
drowning in over-populated toxic pain in the everywhere.
They could have been our much Beloved Community,
if we would regenerate this revolution,
permaculturally washing with Earth’s Nature-Balancing
decompositional soap of ecological intelligence.

Cosmic Comedy Consciousness

Love wants nothing to do

with the everyday affairs of men.

Love’s only intention

is to catch the lover!

Rumi

 

God wants nothing to do

with the routine affairs of men,

God’s only intention

is to catch the lover’s attention!

 

I wonder if Freud’s¬†id¬†transfigured as a sociopathic burning bush

because Freud was drawn toward our shared holy ground of insanity,

internal competition for awareness and consciousness and belonging,

uncovering psychotherapeutic models for highly stressed cognitive dissonance.

 

Had he deep learned himself into Positive Psychology Mentors,

Freud might have grown a more positive consciousness

of self-id-entity as primally

and ecologically,

and economically informed by regenerative natural Supereco

optimizing ego-systemic development compost,

glimpsing paradigmatic Permacultural Design and Implementation,

regenerative standards for achieving and maintaining Climax Community

intimately and internally Yin-landscaped,

within coincidental external Yang landscaped awareness

of Other’s natural systemic ReGenesis.

 

Natural systems not coincidentally balancing

both interior-Yin and exterior-Yang

fail to thrive,

cannot evolve,

become at-risk of de-systemizing,

de-informating,

becoming Non-Polynomial former spacetime information;

a no-longer-incarnating Black Hole Codexed memory loss.

 

Underlying prime organic RNA/DNA fractal tipping-point balancing potentiality,

Bohm’s Implicate Order?

lies prime thermodynamic radiant circumferential harmony

polar-waving gravitational atomic protons,

over binomial QBit TrimTabbing neutrons,

over 4-fold dipolar explicating electrons,

ergodically and ionically synergizing away

back through linear time.

 

We weave agreement:

This Golden Ratioed Earth and all inhabitants

grow stressed in critical climatic transitions,

sprouting both degenerative dissonance

and confluent regenerative trends of

Positive Deviant alternative karmic incarnations.

Our optimal diapraxis,

to notice these currently emerging ecological economic paradigms,

subcultures of cooperative economics and vocations and communities,

and cooperative health care and political discernment for inclusive well-being,

Green Occupier Gaia University Boddhisatvas,

and Permacultural Designers,

Food Justice is Economic Justice is Climate Justice is Ecotherapeutic Justice is Earth Justice.

 

These prune confusion toward prudent understanding of shared core eco-values,

rich with therapeutic seed potential

to plant investment more strategically,

cooperatively,

within our more persistently dissonant negative cultural sociopathology,

divesting from long-term monopolizing and monocultural high risks,

exchanging positively valued Life Id-Entity

to invest in loss of population through monocultural anthropocentrism,

achieving nihilistic trend returns

through lack of conscience, conscientific deductive rationality

and Super-eco balancing awareness.

 

As I more permaculturally comprehend natural system development,

it’s not so much that God is dead,

and it’s not so much that God has an ego-optimizing sense of humor,

it’s more like God is our Supereco polycultural awareness

of dipolar balancing humors trading ego-eco role plays,

enlightening intuitions,

emergent coincidental evolution,

actively peaceful revolutions in cooperative enculturing id-entity comprehension,

recreation,

regenerative ecotherapeutic song and dance.

 

God grows empathetic love

to laugh within our dark places

to light their eco-identity faces.
