Smashed Turkey YamJam

My parenting totem
was the Hawk
of bicamerally perfect egocentric vision
usually greeted by a loud Yang squawk
and vigorous walk
in the other wrong direction.

My WiseElder totem
is the Turkey,
CoMessiah of CoRedemptive Dying
as notnot loving EarthTribe’s future lives.

At eight,
my totem was muse Dragonfly,
greeting and bowing
to Eastern red sky dawns,
mysterious wordless delight.

Yet also warning me,
to get to Hawk yang strength
on into Turkey WiseElder resilient years
I must bear through
mym early adulthood Bear totem,
adolescent polypathic dirges
of synergetic introspection,
lust for perenially nutritious Hibernation Dreams
of eremetic Earth
as Paradise
now climatically
and critically
and pathologically overpopulating Lost,
awaiting total colonization of spring
as AmericaFirst Welfare Found.

Although
these multicultures and DNA tinctures,
scents and colors,
from Eastern DragonFly
through Southern Bear
through Western Hawk
through North American Turkey
were not inter-relationally accessible
until I learned
to translate polypathic Turkey
into polyphonic fractaled
perennially recycled
ego healthy ecowealth.

Turkeys
prefer resilient WiseElder years
and bearing hawk regimes
cooperatively thriving.

To sustain Dragonfly endurance
through WinLose competitions
Business as not-WinWin Usual.

Turkeys
appreciate sleeping through roosting nights
without WinLose nightmarish interruptions.

Turkeys
cannot tolerate
LoserEgo against Loser EcoPolitics
because such lack of self and other esteem
breeds darkish NegativEnergy climates
of pathology.

Turkeys
link their WiseElder ego-internal loops
and caustic lumps
with their EcoNatural external climates
and improvising clumps.

WiseElder Turkeys
and Hawks
and Bears
and muse-dreaming DragonFlies
bear through nuturing Energy Democracies,
co-operative restorations Turkey-invested
fully grateful
for mythic GoldenRule
ecopolitical WinWin
co-relational structures.

WiseElder Turkeys
LeftBrain polytheistically pray,
but never prey,
and beg
and full-flight non-violently demand
other WiseElder Turkeys
to EarthLove our WinWin way back
to reconnect Grazing Commons
where lies now our epic pathology mess.

Mature resilient Turkey multicultures,
with natural-spiritual nondual
inside-outside DNA assumptions
prefer to grow restorative multigenerational justice
with all nutritional positive energy Tribes
of and for Democratic Life
and no more plutocratic
AntiTurkey suffering death

And have the turkey nerve
to call this Commons Easter Rights
of cooperative WinWin SuperGodSun Might,
and Thanksgiving,
and InterDependent Turkey Day.

Turkeys
Left with Right
West with East
interdependent Yang with nondual empty Yin
Zero-WinWin summations
reweaving bilateral wu-wei memories
spiraling slow flow
like turkey gravy
made with goat’s milk
on steaming organic smashed yams.

My ultraviolet turkey gravy
has a lot to say
which might not be the case
after just this one bright day.

She sings in pro-life
spiraling colors,
She speaks to restore
health-wealthing odors.

My bilateral nondual turkey
holds up outside racing natures
to her inside harmonic spirits,
hoped for well-nurtured egocenter
gathering inside wellness EcoCentering Schools
of improvising WinWin acclimation support
without WinLose distractions.

She worships Father’s Sun
and Matriarchal HolySpirit Earth
nondual GodNatured EarthSoul
with interior SacredGaia AnimaMundi

Crippled America, But Growing Good

I was reading Trump’s Crippled America the other day…

I’m sorry to interrupt, but why?
Isn’t his Unreality Show more than taxing enough already?

Well, more than sufficient, actually,
but I was trying to figure out
what he believes a non-gimpy America
would look like.

Fascist scary, am I right?

Like a pilot
for yet another dystopian vampire series.
Anyway,
he keeps describing himself
as not only a rich man
but a nice man.

But not a crippled good man.

Right.
I’ve heard him declare some of his relatives are good.
And then there were the Nazis in Virginia,
also some good people there.
Just having a bad day
at the same time
in the same unfortunate little place
by coincidence,
but good people,
with democratically healthy intentions.

Probably reminds him of his Republican Party.

He says he is rich and nice;
but does not say he is good
or could become better,
or in any way ego crippled,
fractured by love
for innocence of intimate life
as gift.

I don’t suppose he’s just being coy.

I see Trump as coy
even less than Trump as nice.
He all but uses the word “bully”
describing how he ended up in military school,
where he also had unspecified issues.

Didn’t we call those reform schools
back in the day
of childhood self-righteousness?

No, dear,
reform schools were supposed to be about education
to restore sanity.
Military school is about going the other insane direction,
polyunsaturated war-mongering and ballistic bully threats
against foreign property,
which, unfortunately, includes people
and their pets.

And livestock,
gardens and farms,
food and fiber
and spiritual philosophy.

Unworthy causes for erections
and elections
for some not so nice people.

Like un-reformed bullies?

Like over-fertilized monoculturing bullies
writing contracts out again Crippled America.

That doesn’t sound good.

Or nice.
Or even particularly rich
for that matter.

I wonder if too much money,
in an aggressively colonizing
capital-infested culture
leads to too much power
to do even more aggressive violence
against natural-spiritual riches
of Earth
and Her Heavenly ways and means,
cooperative design
and intelligent equi-lateral nutritional planning.

I wonder if rich WesternWhite men
who hope they are becoming more refined,
nicer bullies,
but won’t even pretend to be good,
are any more likely to become good healthy humans
than to pass through the crippled eye
of a discerning wu-wei needle.

Crippled eyes
to stand in solidarity
with the rest of us sinners
doing our best
to learn powers of love
over nice and rich bullying evil.

Restoring Peaceful Climates

Retribution and restoration
share a concern for justice as balance
of responsibility with authority.
But retribution is coercive
while restoration democratizes therapeutic cooperation,
invites grace and love and mercy
for oneself
as for others.

Retributive justice
pretends a violation of our multicultural Golden Rule
leaves no option but to set our WinWin potential aside
and move toward WinLose and LoseLose retaliation.

This sin of missed opportunities
to restore health between individuals,
between specialized economic and political interests,
between invested cultures,
between Earth’s collaterally operating species
between internal Left and Right hemispheres
as between Earth’s dualistic West
and nondual Eastern metaphysical hemispheres
degenerates into further cooperative-affective dissonance
rather than internal peace,
and further punishing competitions
in reaction to past fears and angers and terrors,
inquisitions and impositions of power from Above,
when regenerative restoration
calls for growing balancing powers from within
whom we indigenously could be
reweaving regenerative justice and peace.

Restoration is an invited exchange of therapeutic powers
where retribution ignores further abuse and neglect
and disempowerment
of both predators and prey.

If our Earth-manifest destiny
is to predatively colonize
until all land and water,
airwaves and energy for light and heat and cold
is privately governed and hoarded
by an overpopulated species
of Might Makes Right
always Trumps Golden Global Rules,
then we are a culture grown to expect retributive judgments
where restorative ego and ecotherapies
are more readily
and cooperatively
Self as originally part of Matriarchal Other
manifesting-mentoring cooperative WinWin destinies,
while that other
predative
colonizing
pirating
privatizing
secularizing
degenerative destiny
is just more oppressively fake bad judgment news.

We could rejoin Earth’s natural sacred grace,
restorative reforesting therapies
composed of Golden Global Peace and Justice,
gift economies of gratitude.

Retribution is a competitive choice
to pursue degenerating ecopolitical relationships
where WinWin restorative therapies
wait in the bicameral wings of consciousness
to promise regenerative peace with justice,
within internal landscapes
as externalized balancing climates,
economies of ecological power balance
through active restorative
redistributive
mutual gifting intent
of sacred gratitude
for Earth’s nurturing
nutritional investment
in natural-spiritual humane life,
cooperatively maturing ecopolities.

TransGendering Trumpisms

Trump started it,
with his arguments against transgender people
in the military violence business
of nationalism.

He seems to think trans-thinking
could not be sufficiently focused,
disciplined,
willing to accept ego-sacrifices
as necessary for successful long-term peaceful outcomes.

While this does seem to be an issue,
this lack of focus and self-discipline,
for some in the long-term healthy peace achievement business,
anyone who is transgender
and yet willing to gamble on thriving in a military culture
is not likely to suffer in those ways,
unlike lack of congressional climate of health care outcomes,
and far removed from a Trumpian,
late-decadent Victorian,
All Supremacist WhiteHouse.

It is ever so much easier
to retain a stiff upper lip,
and shut your over-twitterish hatefilled mouth,
when thou art Queen Bee of the Hill,
than when one of the many transgender soldier bees,
defending your right to lay really tragic
not-funny eggs
in full view of a not skeptical enough
Republic.

Perhaps we would all be better off
if we only nominated for President
people who had successful experience not only as Governors
or Senators
or even Vice Presidents,
but also some successful transgender experience.

For to become Trans
is a lifespan progress.
Not only unity of focus
and discipline of bilateral selves,
but also an intuitive feel for balance
between the virulent egocentric
and the viable possibilities for cooperative eco-centric diversity,
and a sense of appropriate
and inappropriate
use of color.

Color,
not only variations on yellow
with red
with blue,
not only black and brown
with diverse hues and textures of white and pink flesh,
but also colorful language
pattern and rhythmic texture,
tone,
ranging scales of operatic drama
but also peaceful romantic moonlit nights
here in this focused,
balancing,
colorful spacetime place
transgender celebrates
as a peaceful,
yet fertile,
diversely promising womb of Earth.

Perhaps we could also improve leadership
for all Earth’s health care giving
and receiving,
by closing the Senate
to straight white males
of any age.
We employ far too many of those
in the incompetent House of NonRepresentatives
to achieve successful unity,
balance,
and color.

Bullies focus on their monoculturing intents
and violent purposes, as necessary,
as self-justified,
so are not known for skill sets
involving polyculturally balancing
ecopolitically healthy outcomes,
much less any Commons sense
of polyphonic color,
much less any politically liberating sense of humor.

For this full design package,
we could more successfully turn
to society’s transgender victims,
soldiering on with and without us
if we could just keep up
with their divinely inspiring
senses of and for balancing peaceful
yet radiant
colors of integrity,
both inside
and out.

Matriotic Trust

The organic building of a coordinated artist
begins with reconstructing competitively clumsy LeftBrain technicians.

Whether learning to play the piano
or learning to communicate in some new language
or learning to adopt,
and/or adapt,
norms and nuances of some new cultural environment,
human nature starts, and started, with RightBrain
as inductive unconscious autonomic pre-programmed DNA/RNA receptivity,
double-bind fractal-octave resonance,
to and with and as externally and internally triggered changes,
and builds out deductively
reductively decomposing complexities of some performance system
we notice in some other,
including other humans,
we are attracted to in some positive empathic-trust way,
inviting further trust.

But, stumbling across an anomalous situation,
a creature,
human or not ambiguously felt
and has become historically suspect,
we distrust due to negative threat,
aggressive competitions
where we would have normally anticipated cooperation;
or maybe just too loud and stinky
to mutually ignore in some tolerant kind of way.

From perennially positive systems
soliciting and supporting our further WinWin nutritional relationships,
and from our negatively toxic attritions,
our deductive LeftBrain builds labels
to reduce the whole gestalt
into its cause-effect cycling and spiraling parts
until we can predict
to our satisfaction,
and sometimes hypnotizing horror,
how to regenerate/degenerate this behavior with our own mindbodies
through deliberate,
step by consecutive technical step,
building technique until this new pattern,
sequence of rhythms within interdependently cooperative performance,
becomes what we call “second nature”
internalized,
as automatic as finding our ways back home.

But, this second nature,
whether learning to perform a song
that is also a compelling and resonant emotive narration,
or venomously screaming threats at anyone you perceive as unlike your own egocentric self,
in some unenlightened way,
becomes incorporated into Left and Right Brain reiterative appositional flow.
Technically learned performance
moves from Left-deductive
toward Right-inductive co-arising nondual
nature-nurtured habit of “second nature” expression,
thought,
activation of a mastered behavioral-affective constellation
of interior/exterior activity,
as natural as writing with your left
or right
dominant hand.

Given all the above,
when and why would becoming a violent aggressor
become an ego-acceptable,
LeftBrain deductive dominant choice
of encultured instinctive response to “non-kin”
as opposed to “not yet kin”?

How would one become attracted to,
and sustained by,
becoming a dissonance-creating and expanding bully,
an aggressor against potentially immigrating strangers as aliens,
labelled collectives of ecosystemic individuals, hives, nests, pests
who have not themselves ever actually exhibited threatening behavior
toward yourself,
or those you already perceive as “kin”?

It seems that terrorism and bullying
might also be rabidly aggressive behavioral-affective negative patterns
which can be as competitively-reiteratively contagious
as cooperative trust
in healthier patterns of becoming together
rather than thrusting and parrying apart.

In WinWin as NonZero ReGenerative Game Theory,
and in Feminist EcoPolitical CoOperative ReProduction Theory,
learning resonant-positive nurturing behavioral norms
anticipates nonzero-sum, nonpatriarchal-competitive, outcomes,
WinWin bilateral equivalence
that normatively anticipates pay-it-forward more of the same
as long as everyone follows Left-Right learned
behavioral-affective Golden Rule matriarchal-maturation patterns
toward mutually nutritional “second nature” norms.

What is actually Elder brain stem “first nature”
is profoundly matriarchal-cooperative ownership and governance
except under unusual survival Win-Lose pressures of past experience
as environmentally reconceived.

It is here
in anomalous primordial seas
of survival of the “I Win so You Lose” fittest
where might makes our ego’s self-optimizing right
to survive today
despite knowing that doing so by accessible aggressive means
predicts more of the negative same,
or even more escalating,
risk of loss tomorrow.
But, this is not normative “first matriarchal-love nature”
just as it is not first-nurture,
for if zero-sum survivalist toxicity
were our AntiGolden Rule primordial soup
from which we arrived at this time on Earth,
then human LeftBrain dominant nature
could never have evolved decompositional technique at all.

Declaring private or very public wars against alien terrorists
is a suboptimizing zero-sum choice
to play a negative LoseLife-LoseLife Game
unless no nonzero-sum option has been more diplomatically learned
that we have not yet responsively tried.

The zero-sum “I must win” so “You must lose” of Either-Or bottom-line producer-over-consumer-oriented capitalism,
with competitive ownership rather than cooperative ownership WinLose assumptions,
is a sub-optimizing economic and political performer,
still trying to relearn our first-nature matriarch-nurturing health and safety.

Capitalism as might-makes-right evolutionary theory
is patriarchally LeftBrain dominantly deductively mislearned,
technologically over-shot,
ecologically over-grazed ecopolitical error
in its unmitigated incarnation
away from baseline cooperative matriarchal stewardship
and nurturing co-management roots.

Ecologic,
like sacred syncretic Logos and Mythos,
is prime relationally,
primally Original Matriarchal Source,
WinWin,
notnot zerosum,
for the same reason economic transactions
and politically positive relationships between kin,
extending out to neighbors
and those perceived more ambiguously as extending-extensive biological kin,
are rooted in continuous Left-Right ego/eco-balancing extensions
from co-empathic trust as positive and normative health-roots,
embryonically matriarch-regenerative,
while actively anti-pathic, sociopathic distrusts
are suboptimizingly negative and violently degenerative.

Economic-political distrust’s sole positive evolutionary function
is in decompositional hindsight,
to break poor outcomes down
into their devolving cause-effect interrelationships
over reiterative reactive time,
to remember how these healthy relationships and wealthy transactions
of equivalently grateful WinWin
pay-life-forward communication broke down,
or simply never fully emerged
due to socio-political and economic climates
of ego-over-competitive neglect.

“the conscious-unconscious [YoungerLeftYang-ElderRightYin] cooperative interplay
also applies in full to moral behaviors.
Moral [cooperative] behaviors are a skill set,
acquired over repeated practice sessions
and over a long time,
informed by consciously articulated [LeftBrain languaged] principles and reasons
but otherwise “second-natured”
[back and forth] into the cognitive [Left, Right] unconscious [balance].”
Antonio Demasio, “Self Comes To Mind, Constructing the [WinWin ReGenerative] Conscious Brain”, p. 287

“I see permaculture as
the use of [WinWin Game] systems thinking
and [notnot 0-cooperative] principles
that provide the organizing [regenerative-positive] framework
for implementing the above vision [of nutritional abundance].
It draws together the diverse ideas,
skills
and ways of [cooperative ownership as governing stewardship] living
which need to be [ecopolitically] rediscovered
and [regeneratively] developed
in order to empower us to move
from being [co]dependent consumers
to becoming [matriarchally] responsible
and [cooperative-]productive
[ecological WinWin] citizens.”

Politics of Mental Health v Pathology

My cerebral palsied incontinent AfricanAmerican FetalAlcohol daughter
asked her teacher if she could be her Substitute
while said teacher will be absent next week.

I was asked for my opinion on the wisdom of accepting this offer:

Ivy will rule with Ugly StepMother tyranny.
She emulates President Trump’s style of self v other empowerment.
With her we call it Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
With him we call it Executive Order.

But then,
I can look at the two of them side by side,
and see why that may be why things are as they are.

Earth’s Messiah Vocation

George Lakoff, in The Political Mind (2008),
speaks to permacultural tension within democratic governance;
between conservative competitions for sufficiently orthodox authority
and progressive movements for more cooperatively integrative empathy.

This purpose of mind,
or human consciousness,
is to evolve further humane integrity of Earth’s-consciousness;
to become more ecologically informed
about climate pathologies,
internal and external,
even global;
to draw together LeftBrain’s authoritative conserving of deductions
with RightBrain’s progressive co-empathic trust in Earth,
in our polypathic need for each multicultural Other,
even for something as politically basic
as having,
articulating,
growing,
refining a well-integrated
and conservatively-responsible
sense of ego-identity.

We have no politically authoritative YangEgo
if there is not first an economically progressive
gift-it-forward
co-empathic Yintegral
Eco-Earth
with nutritionally health-balancing ecopolitical thermodynamics.

Conserving the health of Earth and of AnthroEgos
is our nondual authoritative LeftYang
and co-empathic RightYin
co-arising Climate Health vocation,
as a species,
as members, inheritors and progenitors,
of extended DNA/RNA Solidarity families,
as individual polypathic ego/eco-conscious self-regenerative identities,
avatars of sacred co-intelligent Left/Right PermaCultural Design.

While I try to err on the side of staying positive,
or don’t publish,
I want to veer in that other negative-oppositional direction,
but out of a “here’s what has been helpful for me” place of solidarity,
and not that other conservative-condemning voice of
“you folks have serious climate issues.”

In dealing with my daughter’s Oppositional Defiant Disorder
I have come to see and hear ODD as an indiscriminate form of bullying.
Bullying is normally reserved for strategic targets,
but ODD is a more chronic and democratically inclusive form,
often rooted in early experiences of feeling nutrition-deprived of nurturing.
Regardless, for me,
ODD has become bullying on chronically paranoid steroids,
anger about, and fear of, everybody,
Earth,
life,
touch,
sights and sounds,
the word “no.”

In this sense, ODD and bullying are forms of Climate Healing Denial.
And, that is how I hear national U.S. political and economic leaders
who deny the overwhelming multicultural evidence
that climate change is a climate pathological trend,
which our most conservative spiritual and religious
and moral
and atheistic
and any form of belief in system development at all
agree moves us in the opposite, degenerative, trend
of nature-spirit’s nondual regenerative healing needs
right now.

Not in ten minutes,
when ego is more distracted,
but right now,
and in 10 minutes,
and 10 days,
and 10 months,
and 10 years,
and 100 years.

When our Ego’s go off into a paranoid ODD,
despairing of Climate Health Progress,
inside or outside or usually both,
it’s time to reframe our deep ecology education
about our polypathic healing vocation
through balancing our LeftEgo and RightEco consciousnesses;
psychologically, sure.
But, also Conservative/Progressive
Nature/Spirit
EarthHealth ecopolitically;
nondual,
co-arising.

Neither natural ecosystems
nor sacred spiritual faith experiences
can continue evolving in a healthy regenerative directions
during a crisis of struggling-against despair dissonance
toward chronically monoculturing paranoid climate pathologies
of abjectly nihilistic despair;
chaotic entropic outcomes.

Both Earth’s environment (eco)
and self spiritual identity (ego)
assume and require basic Climate Health
toward regenerative integrity, complexity, to continue evolving together.

As we have orthodoxically and DNA/RNA authoritatively received,
so can we co-invite each other to empathically, and integratively
and polypathically,
and multiculturally,
and ego/eco-consciously
give future healthy-wealthy regenerators
of all Earth’s Conserving-Yang/Progressing-Yintegrating Synergetic Tribes.
