Seminal Enlightenment

When I was in an interfaith seminary
I noticed three models
for understanding a faith community’s purpose
in a democratic and diverse society.

  1. Conservation of SelfRighteous Anger

To compete with,
and thereby degenerate the powers of,
sin and evil and ignorance
in a monoculturally untrustable
hedonistic
degenerating society
destined for just rewards
of hellfire and damnation
because untrustworthy
and untruthfully obscuring privileged
eco-political capitalist patriarchalism.

  1. Liberating from EgoCentered Fear

To rescue us individual sinners,
benighted Earth defilers,
from our capitalist-patriarchal
competitive
oppressive
suppressive anti-feminist
homophobic
racist
ageist anthropocentrism;

To redeem our hopelessly negative
deviant bad health choices,
monoculturing,
left-brain dominantly encultured
verbal miscommunications,
disunions,
despairing experience of eternal apartheid,
loneliness,
unease and disease.

  1. Empowering win-ego/win-eco CoMessiahs
    To cooperatively enlighten each Other
    to grow in compassion
    and non-violent integrity of communication,
    internal communion experience
    and external harmonic community
    for active eco-political hope,
    cooperatively empowering faith,
    deep learning multicultural love.

When I went to Public Administration graduate school,
I, thereby,
noticed three models
for understanding a democratic constitution’s purpose
in a healthy society.

  1. Red Anger Management
  2. Blue/Green Repurposing Win/Lose Fears
  3. Ultra NonViolet
    Whole EarthPeace
    Open ZeroZone
    Win/Win EgoEco-Systemic
    BiCameral CoOperative Empowerment

A Healthier Patriotism

My own patriotic U.S. extended family,
historically,
and currently
remains StraightWhiteMale privileged
in our collective memories,
if not imaginations,
of spiritual communion
with all the more privileged saints
present,
past,
and future

But, we have also suffered
from rather too much faith in capitalism,
which, like democracy,
is frequently faulted as miserable,
but also lauded as better
than all the socialistic
communistic
devilistic
totalitarian
fascist
foreign
threatening
terrifying
anger-inducing alternatives.

Capitalism of our encultured
multigenerational minds
with left-hemisphere dominant brains
favoring natural secularized competitions
between saints and sinners
of diversely threatening monocultural privilege,
persuasions fundamentally supremacist
for democracy in theory
so long as not in perceived conflict
with self-serving capitalism in daily personal practice,
natural and spiritual,
secular and sacred,
ecological and theological.

We are egocentric
sometimes narcissistic
always bootstrap individualistic
evangelical redemption ecopoliticals
but focused on BadNews
of our need to invest in violent self-defense
against Marxist communism out there
in Hell

Not to be confused with commitment to GoodNews
of sacred divine communion
within our privileged StraightWhiteMale places
of apartheid worship
in awe and wonder
dogmatically committed to our StraightWhiteMale God

Made military-industrialized
in our best capitalistic,
not really quite so democratic paternalistic
image of left-hemisphere
StraightWhiteMale rightfully empowered
historical/cultural dominance.

So, there we have it,
this chaotic bilateral dissonance
between our powers of political democratic enlightenment
through whole open-systemic dialogue,
and our confusion about economic uncooperative self-empowerment
at the necessary (either/or thinking) cost of Other disempowerment,
gone sadly win/lose awry
through endless polarizing debate assumptions

That if someone wins,
then all others playing our eco-political game
must lose,
which sounds very much like
survival of the fittest
rightest
left-brain dominant species
OVER AGAINST
Earth’s whole open system
green/blue
ecological/theological success.

Like our dominant left-hemisphere academic theory
of secularized win/lose evolution
is more anthropocentrically capital-headed
and self-righteously defensively effective
than Earth’s sacred WINblue/WINgreen
ego/eco-politics
of polypathic political dialogue
empowering through GoldenRule democratic resilience,

And right hemisphere
polyphonic economic enlightenment
co-invested through Golden Octave Ratios
in interdependent multicultural dialogue,

Holonic nonzero sum,
polynomially left GroupTheory
and polyvagally bicameral right/left Win/Win GameExperience

My extended global
multicultural family
history and future
with more resonant
healthier cooperative democracy
embedded in Earth’s ecosystemic wealth,

Co-invested across multi-generations
of MotherEarth’s wise-dialogue
win/win eco-political
eco-feminist regenerators

Not of colonizing political
and anthropocentric economic privilege
but of democratically co-invested integrity
in sacred green/blue communion.

Healthy Empowering Economics

I was a Taoist
philosophically and spiritually
metaphysically and physically
long before my Public Administration classes.

Which may be poignantly of interest
because the original Taoist teacher,
LaoTse,
taught sensory experiences
of Yang-testosterone energy
and Yin-estrogen synergy
for a bicameral governing audience
with questions about how to empower egocenters red/yellow
and ecosystems blue/green
equitably,
as democratically healthy as possible,
while avoiding libertine chaos.

One of the most useful,
and curious, DeepLearnings
that emerged in these Public Health Governance classes
with Public Wealth Management professors
is the yang/yin interplay
between capitalist economics,
with a profound Western monopoly on defining “value,”
AND democratic politics
of self and Other,
Me and We,
empowerment objectives.

When RightWing economic conservatives
look at the Constitution,
They see YangPatriarchal scripture
demanding sacred fealty,
defining orthodox hierarchical structures
to achieve “stay in the nationalistic competitive Black”
and bottom-line financial balance
between outgoing investments
and incoming returns
in experienced social
cultural
historically accumulating
nationalistic GNP value,
and don’t worry so much
about Earth’s capacity to repair
gross nationalistic consumption;

As if democratic virtue
is a free market bankable investment
for the personal governing pleasure
of those most successful
at capitalism’s win/lose game
of empowering/disempowering patriarchal
monotheistic straight-white values.

On the other hand,
LeftWing political liberals
step into embodied
full-sensory mindbody circles
to listen for Yin-ecofeminist
historical/cultural wisdom

Refining multicultural revolving spirals
of democratic power to cooperatively achieve
“you don’t always have to color within dogmatic lines”
in basic black
or business grey
or maybe brown
or navy blue conservatism,
and also notice top-line integral balance
between outgoing economic empowerment
and incoming democratic returns
in co-empathic
globally multiculturing
historically inter-weaving
EarthTribe deep cooperative listening skills

As if democratic health
is a revolutionary blue/green/yellow/red/purple/orange
multi-regenerational co-investment language
for interpersonal pleasure governing
those most successful
with capitalizing on Yang’s testosteroned win/win strengths
for deep learning
enlightening Yintegral ecofeminist
ecopolitically encircling
revolving
repurposing
reweaving
regenerative values.

Bankable cooperative re-investments
for ecosystemic present
and future Turquoise/Ultra-NonViolent regenerations
of self/Other governing
multiculturally intelligent
communicators.

ReStoring EarthPeace

Now that Restorative Justice
has raised her Gaian ecological purpose,
to restore multiculturing peace
in polyphonic
polypathic Turquoise Eden,
how do you continue to justify
a win/lose Retributive Justice evolutionary philosophy
of law and moral order
as contributing to healthy
win/win
regeneratively revolutionary democracy?

Asked the ecosystemic Judge
of UnitingNations jurisdiction.

Restorative Justice
was never intended to be effective
where either victims
or predators
are unwilling,
often incapable,
of re-engaging in cooperative
interdependent
win/win dialogue,
egalitarian discernment
in-between Trust
and MisTrust
and hostile DisTrust.

So you argue
win/win regenerative assumptions
of natural/spiritual creatures
are not safely,
and not realistically, accessible
for all the healing dreams and purposes
endemic to our Gaian muse of Justice?

An insufficiency
of experience
with healthy democratic peace;
yes.

And,
how will continuing to primally rely on win/lose retribution,
where victims and a healthy society
are presumed to Win
by punishing criminals
and Loser scoflaws,
lead us toward this noble,
and globally multicultural, goal
of achieving healthy democratic peace
for all Earth’s regenerative creatures?

Retributive Justice
is the State’s weapon
to protect the Common Good
from further injustice,
a deterring threat;
not a tool
or medicine
toward an actively remediating peace,
domestic
or international,
private
or public resonant health.

How do you respond
to peace therapeutic win/win possibilities
of multiculturally mediated dialogue
to bring together victim compassion
with wrongdoer remorse,
without hyperactive threat of criminalization;
As compared to current Retributive Justice outcomes,
case loads,
imprisoned and exploited populations
of marginalized misfits,
disproportionately poor
and dark-skinned?

Traditional patriarchal systems
do not over-invest
in democratic health
or rights
of our predative
and victimized,
traumatized
feminized
marginalized
raped and pillaged citizens,
as these are not well-established
in win/win cooperative investments.

I’m not sure
arguing for further patriarchal
competitive win/lose capital-investments
helps your justice through win/lose punishment
cause.
You invite the Court to question
whether anyone is capable of sufficient Trust
toward resiliently democratic peace,
internal as external,
to actively communicate egalitarian
restorative
healthy democratic choice-making,
Facing toward compassion,
facilitating win/win disciplines,
expanding ego-recentering non-violence
therapeutically mediating ecosystemic compassion.

Light/Dark Powers

If a maturely individuated ego…

Honey, you just left out most of us.
Could you work on being more inclusive?

is organically
holistically SelfAware,
codedefining as
Not some Other conscious egocentered person,

Some Other living sensate creature
composed of interdependent
organic health-maintenance and development functions,

Including reproductive capacity,
regenerative fertile potential
inherited
for repurposing
recycling into Earth’s polyglot future,

And, if Earth
is also an organically living
global ecosystemic Habitat
revolving and recycling
within universal light and dark energy fields,

Expanding complex positive energy systems
and chaotic negative entropic potentials

Not ZeroSum
and, more positively, Win/Win co-gravitating
ionically re-ligioning systems
re-connecting
re-weaving

re-emerging from interdependently dancing Black Holes,
dark spiritual energy chakras
for transport
and Whole Open Systemic ReDevelopment Processes,

Admittedly, a grandly dark-staged IF,
yet,
if interdependently holistic ego systems
interact within a universal win/win energy environment
of unitarian meta-energy balancing light/dark
health/pathology systems,

Then where could GodSun
and EarthGoddess starlight
have SuperEgo bilaterally emerged from?
SuperOther than our original
multicultural
prime ZeroSum double-binary
co-empathic relationship

Fertile light Mother
and darkly embryonic sacred Child
co-empathically polypathic
Polymathic
Polyphonic
Poly-metamorphic
Polyphoric
Polyvagal energy
positive light
inviting self-conscious rebirth

Of deep
dark
wounded postpartum
unwinding win/lose
empowering/disempowering
wombs
with BlackHole commencements

As YangBright truths and trust
greet YinDark sacred beauty,

As regenerative democratic life
predicts and evicts
degenerative unrevolving death
of continuously monoculturing
patriarchal egos

Marching in predative capital-infested squares,
rather than dancing
in BlackLife Matter
holistic energy chakras,
bright and beautiful.

Cerebral CoOperativism

Capitalism
is an economic strategy
and/or theory
that harbors no inefficient room
for healthy democratic love,
to live or die trying
(and not slowly fade away
not trying)
and for concomitant
co-arising
co-relational
positive correlational
ego/eco-relational
co-passionate
compassionate
wealthy multicultural values.

Cooperativism
is an inclusive incorporating culture,
with an economic systemic plan,
a politically healthy theory
rooted in democratic
and robust multicultural
win/win privileged values.

Expectations of cruel
and unusual win/lose punishment
strategies for fake
disempowering
undemocratic justice
is what runaway cascading capitalists
dream of drowning in
each nightmare night
of winners v losers politics.

Anticipation of kind
and natural/spiritual win/win rewards
for restoring Earth’s healthy green justice
is what cooperativists
wake up to
each co-arising economically buoyant
democratic dawn

Of ecosystemic RightHemisphere rest
prevailing over
anthro-centric LeftHemisphere restlessness
about Yang global
v Yin spinal spiraling
health empowering emphasis
of multiculturally cooperative patriotism
over monoculturing capitalist fealty.

Please Do Panic

Writing yet another note to my straight white CongressMan,
asking him to Please, Do Panic
about all this fear-based non-legislation
undemocratic fascist
nationalistic Win/Lose evolutionary corrupt
democratic devolution
going on around
and within us,

I’m wearing a white 1970s vintage Tshirt
from Castro Street’s Don’t Panic
political resistance and celebration
apparel.

Fifty years later,
I think it is well past time
to take the cooperativist
win/win panic plunge,

With a bold
black framed message:

THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT
IS WRONG

My son’s Haitian-American nurse,
married
and straight
as a military-industrialized arrow,
without the slightest quiver
of vocalized doubt,

Sexy darkbrown skin,
greying at his wisdom temples,
and a devout capitalist 7th Day Adventist
family provider man
of second or third evangelical generation,

Wants to know
if he, in 2020,
is affiliated with what my Tshirt says
to the Religious Right of 1975.

Possibly,
but I have always known you
as part of a Spiritual Right,

Which does not
too liberally judge
outside your own sensory satisfactory experience,

And is informed
and transparently curious
to learn from your own
sensory anticipations
of healthy smells
and wealthy tastes,
what feels good
and touches right,

And to responsibly stretch
your own sensory anxieties/anticipations
without blaming
or ambiguously shaming yourself
for not accepting who you are
right now
in this life
flowing toward
who we will become sacredly together,
spiritually and naturally,
tomorrow.

Which must,
in good right faith,
inevitably become a more rooted choice
to not be some other spiritual
or anti-spiritual life,
sometimes anxious about monoculturally competing
and other times anticipating
multicultural engagement
to be most naturally/spiritually right
in the ZeroZone pocket
of just Right EarthNursing balance.

Finding right religion
in natural/spiritual sensory experience;
your own phenomenological journey
embeds our shared ontological history
of sensory
neurological reweaving
re-ligioning psychological
left/right
yang/yin ancient sensory co-arising climax
of co-awareness,
consciousness,
co-operative con-scientiousness,
Ego/Eco-Systemic Balance.

My son’s 7th Day Adventist
Black Lives Matter
Haitian-American straight male nurse responds,

“Thank you.
That’s true.”

“Where can I find this shirt?
I would like one to wear
to our church picnic.
My extended Right spiritual family
will have many paniced health questions.”

And concerns
about green democratic wealth, I add.

“And, as you say,
some surprisingly grateful
gospel faith
anticipations.”

Turquoise Communion

Eastern non-violent communion teachers
pass along a sacred tradition
that enlightened moments
of healthy integral life
predict wealth optimizing death
of future moments
for verbal left-hemisphere dominant
society of Man v Woman,
Yang v Yin
Left v Right bicameral
bilateral co-arising
Life/Death balancing resilience,
regenerate/degenerate

Organic/ergodic
ionic/bionic/ironic good-humored energy
electing electrically transporting wealth
of non-violent choices
to more resonantly balance
decisions toward propulsion
with repulsion,

More fully leaving discontinuous acts
and dissociative scenes
and dissonant communication
for indigenous multicultural Turquoised
ultra-nonviolet
ancient full moon celebrations

Vacationing at enspirited home
within sensory sexual climaxes
without residual sensual needs
to transport further aggression
where good win/win healthiest wealth
could not return toward red and angry life
on Earth’s most beautiful green/blue
frames restoring Justice

In EarthTribe’s multicultural society
at Peace,
rest,

Just distant enough from efficient death
to remember intimate generosity
transporting communions
recalling richest green/blue Life
for healthy non-violent EarthSystems.

Earth’s Superior Wisdom

Revolving Earth knows
from ancient sense-sexual
life experience

That we,
as global EarthTribe regenerators,
do simultaneously experience
seasons of summer north
and winter south,

That we do
already know
and financially appreciate
dualistic capitalism West
and nondualistic Both/And communion
ancient indigenous East multiculturalism,

That we are
already bicameral
Either/Or deductive Left bipolar hemispheric
and Both/And inductive Right dipolar spheric,

That triangulation
of health care choices,
win/win
win/lose
lose/lose
has many warm and healthy,
safe and wealthy,

Communioned States of Ecstasy

Lying under the dynamic heart
of ancient theological reflection
is experience,
as is true of any resonant theology
of ecological relationships
between resonant feelings
and resilient energies;

Experience
and ecological reflection about
compassionate
spiritually-felt communion,
touch
sensations
pressures
and plunges
of win/win universal relationships.

A theological term
for this heightened
and deepened
and widened cooperative
contemplative management
and ownership
and mutual becoming together
sacred experience
is “transubstantiation”

Of exterior wine
as also interior blood shared,

Of natural bread
as also spiritual embodiment,

Of Yang health energy
as also Yin wealth
of win/win light flow
between
and among visualized
smelled
tasted
felt
shared sensory chakras,

Of exterior nature
as also interior spirit,

Of secular bipolar experience
and ecological reflection,
as also sacred dipolar transposition,
co-empathic
bilateral
both/and compassion,
and theological/ecological
spiritual/natural energy
for co-embodied healthy contemplation

Of outside being
as also inside becoming
compassionate win/win communion
sacredly together
urgently needed,
and climatically wanted
even more than co-emergently needed
seeded,
co-invested
much more than segregated apart,
antagonistically win/lose co-divested.

Transubstantiation of health care communion
empowerment politics,

Love overwhelming
economically unenlightened win/lose competitions
for more prevention of future
individualistic
anthropocentric
nationalistic pathologies.

Transubstantiation,
like communion,
the ultimate win/win
therapeutic
ego/eco-political experience;
resonant Right
resilient Left.
