Resilient Health Care Systems

Competitive economic experience
breeds business as usual
capital-growing cultures
with a special preference historical
for white privilege patriarchal
remembering and designing
left-brain dominant educational systems.

Cooperative ecological economies
breed more organic networks
of permacultural health
and nutrition
and communication experience,
with a special historical preference
for ecofeminist Earth-empowered
deep learning
listening
noticing prime primal attachment relationships
between internal ego-
and external eco-
systemic balance,
harmony,
interdependent equity,

RightBrain HealthWealth Prominent ,
liberal leftwing progressive,
freedom from isolated loneliness,
depression,
repression,
suppression,
AND
LeftBrain WealthHealth Dominant,
conservative rightwing defensive,
freedom to impressively
robustly
compassionately
nutritiously thrive

without eating the less brilliantly aristocratic help

and remembering to at least say
Please and Thank You and You Are Welcome,
is where civil rights end
and co-responsively begin.

Kleptocracy

I’m reading this book about germs and guns and steel
and pre-history
and human history,
predators and prey,
and people praying they won’t be predatored.

You know,
light bedtime reading.

So, this guy who wrote the book…

No, not the Daniel Quinn thing.
Quinn thinks the beginning and end of our nutritional civilization story
is food production.
He forgets we can also hear cooperative health
and overly-rabid pathologies,
like CEOs calling “bleed the poor to feed those already too rich”
“tax cuts”.

I mean,
I guess they are tax cuts
if you happen to be in the top 20% US income bracket,
but that seems to miss the healthier democratic point
that Lower 80% Lives Matter Too.

No, not Quinn,
it is this younger guy,
Jared Diamond,
who probably never even met Thomas Merton.

Diamond mentions “kleptocracy”
where I would have used “plutocracy”
or “aristocracy”
rather than “democracy”
but this sounded too kleptomanic
to nutritiously feed integrity
of national health
and personal
and family
and non-elite wealth.

So I had to look up this kleptocracy word
to see if it might be the economist’s view
of the political scientist’s view
of plutocracy.

And, sure enough,
here it is,
right, but feeling very wrong,
on dictionary.com:
“A government or state in which
those in power exploit national resources
and steal”

This sounds familiar
from the Declaration of Independence,
in which the original USA forefathers
informed the British aristocracy
that we are all done
with the stealing of natural and human resources
thing they called “taxes” and “fees”
and the white male property owners
(including slaveowners)
called tribute
and extortion.

Meanwhile I was listening to the Cohen testimony
about some plutocratic kleptocrat
racist extortionist
buying and selling his white privileged way
into our way too WhiteHouse
extolling the unabashed value of WinLose capitalism,
so long as those born into “Win” households
remain unfettered from their colonizing
and extorting
and racist
and homophobic
and xenophobic lack
of any semblance
of traditional Christian virtues
or Islamic virtues,
or Buddhist virtues,
or Taoist virtues,
or Hindu virtues,
or Jewish virtues,
or democratic constitutional well-being
and prosperity virtues.

So, there you go,
I’ve already learned my new word for this plutocratic day
and kleptocratic nightmare.

Who knew?
We have words for everything
someone might ever need
to slice and dice
and serve up,
like food production
to grow less healthy
uncivilized undemocracies.

Civilizing Savages

I stumbled over Paul Tillich’s translation
of the MessiahMentor’s Other Great Commission.

The Great Commission we learned in Sunday School
was to go out and convert the barbarians
and savages to Christianity.

Yet this Other Great Commission feels like a necessary prerequisite,
like requiring Statistics 1
before wandering on into the further abstractions of trending probabilities
and improbabilities
that savages could become barbarians
and barbarians become civilizations
of savage-barbarians
as uncovered in Statistics 2.

Tillich’s version of St Matthew (5:48) reads
“You must be all-inclusive as your heavenly Father is all-inclusive.”

Jesus has been exegeting perfect love
as favorably contrasted against not-so-perfect love,
and the conclusion summarizes with
YHWH as the perfection of all-inclusive love,
so this is also our civilizing humaning-divining destiny,
this perfect all-inclusiveness,
which would seem to necessarily include
the nature worshipping savages
and the MightMakesRight barbarians
within us all.

But, what I wonder,
from my presumably partially redemptive civilized perspective,
is how could becoming all-inclusive perfection of love
be anything less than taught by God the LogosHeavenly Father
and mentored by Goddess the MythosEarthly Mother?
These two faces of one co-arising nondual all-inclusive love
of the hunters and gatherers,
the MightMakesRight Patriarchal
and the Cooperative Matriarchal barbarians,
and the strong-masculine/nurturing-regenerative-flow
civilizing as creolizing LeftYang bodyminds
and RightYin mindbodies.

To perceive oneself as one of the holy civilized
rather than barbaric unwashed
seems to deny the endemic creolization,
adaptation,
adoption,
co-opting,
extracting from what was before
that is the matriarchal-cooperative nutritional stuff
of a nurturing emergent co-acclimating civilization.

To comprehend myself as patriarchal/matriarchal civilizing
speaks first to becoming all-inclusive mentor of love,
including all the YangNature and YinSpirit
of my barbaric heritage,
remembering adolescent hormonal waves of supremacy v intimacy,
and embracing my own TerribleTwos savagery;
I must eat when I am hunger,
drink when I am thirst,
sleep when I become tired of all Other.

This perfection of all-inclusive bicameral love
emerges the first clue how to share good co-redemptive news
to be found within every holonic tradition,
every ergodic rhythmed transition
of which we are each a necessary,
but never autonomously sufficient, part,
in our savage through bicamerally civil maturation,
mutual-creolizing acclimation.

Ergodic: like holonic, only dynamically inclusive,
as holonic is statically exclusive of partiality.
A process (progress, evolution)
in which every sequence
(stage, regenerative frame, co-acclimating development)
and/or sizable sample
is equally representative of the whole
(as in all-inclusive holiness).
A creolizing progress toward 100% Yang probability
that any dynamic state (stage, regenerating frame) will recur
AND
zero-sum LoseLose improbabiity
that any regenerative-creolizing-acclimating state
will never recur; Yin-entropy-virginity-emptiness.

Perfectly all-inclusive love
like YHWH’s
as MotherEarth’s
is ergodic-holy-holonic acclimation,
from RightElder brain stem savage EitherYang/OrYin,
Out/Or-In,
identity formation,
through barbaric LeftBrain Both/And RightBrain co-emergence
of adolescent coming of nature-spirit competitive age,
and too occasionally more civilizing cooperations
with EitherBoth/OrAnd mutual balancing acclimations,
on toward more all-inclusive Left/Right co-arising nonduality
of perfect WinWin love,
within as without,
Yin dialectic bilaterally ergodic (matriarchal-cooperative)
as Yang deductive holonic,
uniting savage barbaric civilizations of cooperativity
with universal divine inspirations,
creolizing acclimations
becoming even better ecopolitical news
about both private and public health trends and probabilities.

From this view,
it seems curious that Pope Francis
would look back through vast histories of spiritual experience
and find memories of God’s priestly invisible hand
and mind and regenerative bodies within married men,
but not married women,
especially within that long permacultural history
of motherhood nurturing perfect all-inclusive love,
from savage infants through two year olds,
through barbaric hormone-drenched adolescents,
on through maturing-civilizing-acclimating adult children
of all genders and gender preferences.

What could be more priestly stewardship,
and yet also prophetic promise,
than giving blood-baptism’s birth
and ergodically nurturing healthy continuous support
through all our holy all-inclusive diversity stages
within WinLeft-WinRight
bicameral nondual co-arising,
and civil-cooperative,
BothBarbarian/AndSavage
becoming all-inclusive love?

Maturing Up Together

When you hear justice
do you also listen for responsive mercy?
Or are you more likely to feel merciless revenge
against uncivilized behavior
swelling vibrant adrenaline
baptizing your self-righteous bloodstream?

If revenge is your best defense
against chaotic complexities of anti-social behavior,
If punitive humiliation is this justice you would mentor,
live by,
protect,
then you will be an often disappointed,
and disappointingly ineffective,
parent,
and would best stay far away
from anything in law enforcement
and civil defense,
and gun permits.

Advocates and defenders of justice for all
are deep lovers of intentions and behaviors
positive humored
seeking their notnot negative unbalancing
of empty cleansing rituals including Society’s ecopolitical liturgies,
obsessive-compulsive demoralizing ruminations,
ruinations,
ramblings and echoes of great and small climatic transitions
quaking Earth’s moral imagination
steeped in Anthro cultures and histories,
kind and not-unkind.

Justice without mercy
is like reactivating love without peace,
like trying to actually mentor love
without internal and interdependent contentment
that we are in this life together,
all both guilty and innocent of most everything one might imagine,
until we fall apart
to reweave yet another new day,
with notnot strictured Elder shadows,
mercifully thrown together
as not-not fully grown regenerates.

Talking over Tea

Do you share my concern that your happiness and healthy life are too ephemeral,
short-lived?

No! Why? Do you know something I should know?

Not likely.
Just wondering,
awed by your capacity,
your relentlessly positive energy for life,
despite the odds of too-soon demise.

Do you share my concern that your happiness and health are ephemeral and short-lived enough
to harvest their wealthier sustainability through more cooperative logistics,
strategies of love,
designs of recreativity,
plans for healthier social and economic policies,
domestic and otherwise?

Of course.
Who wouldn’t.
Oh, that’s right,
perhaps someone substituting yangish eros for yin’s full-flowing agape.

Hmmm?
I know agape as Greek for Tao-balanced Basic Attendance.

Yes, well same transformational difference.
These language distinctions become complex
because of our continuing struggle with Yang dominating Yin,
Eros dominating Agape,
culturally responding by basically becoming a climate-change bitch.
Sorry,
I can’t find a more civilized English translation
for yin’s revolutionary anger with yang’s culture-dominating eros
when we could remember our Earth-balancing agape primal relationship,
not just in bed and during team time,
although those do come immediately to mind,
but also more politically, economically, ecologically,
systemically harmonic,
integrative, if you will.

No offense taken,
but this reminds me,
what is your relationship,
if any, between boredom, basic attendance, and bliss?

Other than all those bees,
it seems basic attendance lies between boredom and bliss,
a midway, or tipping point, perhaps.
A “wear your everyday clothes, having tea in-house” way
of balancing yin’s excesses of sensory-cognitive internalization
with yang’s excesses of ecoconscious elation,
which is very nice, and beautiful,
but can be distracting for Business As Cooperatively Usual,
everyday-wear purposes.

Rather like now.
My basic attendance neither grasps for happiness,
nor despairs of ego’s ephemeral absence,
lack of interest in whatever you just offered as a mix of nutrition and sometimes more dissonant pathology
in the too-slow time of my under-investment in our more active agape.

I believe we both want what’s healthiest for this tea right now,
appropriately wealthy cooperative attendance
to Earth’s multicultural voices,
most certainly including each other’s.

Yes, so tell me more about this blend of AsiaticTao and GreekAgape,
your perfection of imperfect love,
always both too enormously grand,
overwhelmingly much,
and yet never deep and stable enough to fully follow,
boundlessly insatiable agape
as quenchingly ravenous eros thirst.

Oh, that’s too dear,
communicating about my imperfect life,
or even my personal agenda,
my hot issues of our immediate day,
or trying to,
prior to remembering our love,
mutuality,
our cooperative intent,
basic attendance as CoMessianic Occupiers,
hosting a civilized and proper tea
but without any hot water yet.

Having all ingredients,
knowledge,
resources needed for such an ambitious and worthy social undertaking,
while our best benign hosting intentions evaporate,
undermined by failure to establish communication’s foundation,
a primally mutual presence of engagement,
bilaterally enthymematic,
or even multi-laterally,
with larger rhetorical and therapeutic events than this simple bilateral tea.
I’m thinking even tribal events,
familial,
but also big political and economic systemic events of enculturing history.

Hot water fuels a civil politically cooperative tea
as passion fuels love,
as agape fuels life,
as life remembered and reflected,
experienced together becomes creative expression,
articulation,
transaction,
transportation of information between tea-time mindbodies
sharing our mutually-held Basic Attendance gestalt,
for and with myself and others.

I would add others as Earth’s interdependent Tribes
when discussing ecosystemic communication,
although here, for our larger sacred purpose,
yin-flow of water’s bilateral function,
freely shared and loved and known to compose DNA’s gestalt,
need not be quite so warm,
within these less domesticated circles of Tribal communication.

Water as Basic Attendance baptism
mutually recognized as our shared heritage of environmental history,
becoming Earth’s language biosystems steeping our genetic tea leaves
in and through Earth’s Basic Attendance waters,
rhetorical gestalts with mutually benign flow
and interdependently reiterative function,
transposition between Earth’s great and small transitional becomings,
searching and researching our tipping points
of Earth’s climatic healthy water,
wealthy therapeutic yin-flow of yang’s dipolar mutual reverence
for Earth’s majestic Elder EcoLogic.

Most certainly including a proper tea
lived, loved, and communicated therapeutically
within EarthTribe’s Basic Attendance
extending back through regenetic healthy Elder Commons
and forth
toward shared nutritional teas of tomorrow’s predicted cooperativity.

I love our freedom of time and capital to invest in cooperative frequencies,
functions, and rhetorical forms of life
lived together as active loving orthopraxis,
rejoining Earth’s healthy YangEros with wealthy YinAgape,
a more thermodynamically balanced blend of tea time,
turning away from mediocrity
suboptimizing Earth’s healthier potential climate outcomes.

Cultural scars awake yin’s too dormant flow,
leading from extended familial tribalisms toward Yang’s dominating empiricism,
EmpireBuilding Totalitarianism,
leading from nature’s evolving equity
toward Yang’s ruthlessly domesticating Slavery of Self and Other,
hubris of “owning” bio and ecosystems,
leading from Earth’s nature-spirit of cooperative basic attendance
toward contractual Welfare States of Mind
exacting indentured servitude of decreasingly valued self-commodity,
leading from Earth’s civil rights of ecobalance
toward too-Yanged civilization through empire-building reductive competitions
to control Earth’s domestic events,
revolving teas of integrative empathy
cooperatively served throughout each of love life’s warm-poured moments.

Do you share my concern that our tea is growing cold?

No. Why?
Do you know something I should know?

No. Just wondering,
awed by your basic attendance capacities,
your relentlessly positive energy for agape,
despite the odds of too-soon love’s imperfect demise.
