Dad’s Control Issues

Have you seen,
or even felt,
an historical coincidence
between monotheism
and patriarchal theism
and competitive ChosenPeople
monoculturing control issues?

Have you heard
resonant compassioned languages
polyculturing herstoric redevelopment,
ego/polytheistic
nondualistic integral multi-regenerational experience
in-between cooperative ecomatriarchal green theists
and competitive multicultural EarthTribe Circles
thrivalist Ecological Interdependent Spirals
co-empowering multigenerational ReCycles
within co-operative
ego/eco-empowering
Left/Right-Economic Winging
singing bicameral
enlightening secular/sacred bipartisan
co-governance

And Win/Win co-investment
in sublimely divinely competitive
yet playful teams
and tribes
and local community opportunities
to avoid win/lose survivalist
patristic devolutionary risks

By embracing win/win thrivalist
ecofeminist revolutionary opportunities
to polyculturally embrace compassion
when we are at high pandemic
rabid fear and anger frisk.

Outside v Inside Strategy

When Donald Trump
ran against very Presidential Obama,
that he did not look
or sound like a win/win public sector leader,
or even commit to expanding healthy democracy,
worked well for him.

His favorite public relations strategy
is to win first place coverage on the evening news
by whatever entertaining means available.

This helped him win the electoral college
playing to a Christian RightWing
and straight white patriarchal-capitalist privileged
left-brain military-industrialized
win/lose monoculturally dominant
Base

As an inexperienced
entrepreneurially successful entertainer,
a wealthy self-made star,
a corporate-savvy business manager
ready for the big disempowering liberals screen

As viewed by those hungry for anyone
who would recite the RightWing mantra
that Right to Life
does not imply
Right to Public/Private Health,
regenerative
cooperative well-being
of all sacred organic LifeSystems,

Liberal and conservative
and all multiculturing varieties
of lovers and compassioners,
saints and sinners,
in between

Which is more of a right-brain
interdependent
both/and holistic
Holy Spirit way
of revisioning 20/20 bicameral life
revisiting mature
experienced
co-empowering
co-enlightening
bilateral Truths.

Anyway,
Trump’s strategy
backfires as re-issued
from the White House in 2020
now more than ever
dominating lead story national news
still looking alarmingly unpresidential.

Make America Great Again
by disempowering Liberals again
and by Grabbing Earth’s Balls and Tits Again
looks and feels tarnished
swampish,
yet another rich entitled
straight white patriarchal
scumbag politician
living in a powerful mansion
with nothing to say
about my mental/physical health,
nothing to support healthy family life,
no clue about affordable health care,
denying the biggest crisis of global history,
our international health emergency
also known as climate warming,
no ideas about empowering multiculturally healthy democracy
rooted in public trust-governed cooperative win/win systems,
no messages for those seeking natural or spiritual health,
bereft of any hope
for ecological or theological safety.

His biggest asset for the 2016 presidential election
is now his deepest
and widest liability
for 2020 re-election
as a RealTime BiCamerally EcoTherapeutic President,

Who sounds
and looks
and possibly smells
and touches
and feels democratically health-wealthy
Presidential;
not quite so greasy fast-food swampish,
grabby,
greedy,
narcissistic;
more of a fatuous clown
than a facetious entertainer.

DisConnecting Dogmas

Our humane-empowering species,
steeped in regenetic history
of human nature connecting
disconnecting
reconnecting
preconnecting,

Has an unfortunate tendency,
especially in Abrahamic historical traditions,
to imagine that our own religious tradition
is not only free of historical-cultural adaptation
but also the one supremely right-wing Way
orthodox Truth
healthy Life.

And, further, guilty of inhumane hubris,
of condemning those outside our dogmatic Fold,
our LeftBrain dominant individualistic EgoFrame,
to lack of redemptive grace,
to after-life Hell,
to lack of true communion
within today’s Earth
holonic
regenerative Spirit
of inclusive win/win recommunication,
empowerment
and enlightenment,
sacred awe
and secular wonder.

Due to this patriarchally influenced
left-brain privileged assumption,
HumanNature lives disconnected
in a win/lose racing economy,
determined by our orthodox religious
and other monoculturally privileged associations
and dues,
catechisms
and formative scriptural over-simplifications
and decontextualized
unhistoricized
dis-enculted
starkly isolated from human experience
studies,

When the practices
and beliefs
of those raised inside the Fold
become obviously heterodox,
our too often StraightWhiteMale authority voices
move toward excommunication,
shunning future cooperative
mutually creolizing empowerment,
remaining true-blue
dogmatically zealous
about our hidden
left-brain dominant
Earth-colonizing
anthropocentric mission,
messianism,
millennialism

And this left-brain overpowered indulgence
has repeated this disconnection,
this unredemptive severance,
this patriarchal apartheid preference
since prehistoric nature/spirit indigenous tribes,
long before Abrahamic written stories of Judaism,
Christian redevelopment,
and Islamic reform came into Earth’s empowering
and enlightening
constantly changing
evolving
revolving
spiraling regenerative connecting
communing
communicating traditions
nutritions
communions shared by all God’s living creatures.

One way of reading the economic
and political turns in the Gospels
is to see the story
of Pharisees
Saducees
and TaxCollectors
as Jewish authorities
who wanted to excommunicate EarthCreator’s Messiah
for stepping outside dogmatic institutional lines
of orthodoxy
and institutional
corporate
empire investment.

Rather than adapting,
co-acclimating to Jesus’s spiritual experience
of a Creator Abba
of regenerative
nurturing
co-passionate Love,
These WealthyElite saw their own unchanging Torah,
established commandments
educational and administrative regulations
dogmatic structures
and long histories of authoritative rabbinical interpretations
of Jewish Law,
as a final
closed religious system,
too privileged,
too Chosen,
supremely endowed with Yahweh’s divine teachings,
to be inconveniently challenged
by anyone with a deviant spiritual experience.

Academic awareness of positive integral deviance
is a modern empowering
enlightening
reconnecting hope with good faith.

What might we learn from this disconnecting
dogmatic
dark side of our GoodNews epistles?

Perhaps less arrogant
and internally preoccupied authorities
might appreciate our more multiculturally healthy milieu
within which all historically developed traditions,
cultures,
religions
have emerged
to describe connection integrity
and proscribe disconnection chaos.

Perhaps our positive deviant minds
and hearts
and spirits
and souls could be encouraged
to find a better religious tradition fit
to become more integrally accepted
and interdependently valued
as s/he/they continue their spiritual/natural journeys
into empowering multiculturally synergetic Truths
enlightening Ways
compassionate Lives,

Rather than the current hubris
of excommunicating
from the one and only True sacred Fold
in divine flowing rivers
of polyculturally communing
sacred EarthTime,

Revolving
evolving
spiraling regenerative climate and culture Changes,
positive diversity,
healthy empowering Missions
for enlightening wealthy spirit/nature vocations,

Reconnecting where each individual
has been,
accepted as now experienced,
and pointed in a new community support direction
toward that good faith
we hope to multiculturally become,
tomorrow’s peaceful practitioners
restoring Justice For All,
with no one left outside Earth’s
empowering local
enlightening global
Fold.

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.”

In Our Distance Circle

Once upon time’s center
grows two permaculturing farmers,
multicultural mediators
of Earth’s healthy polypathic remainder,

And, surrounding them,
seven elders
and their cheer leading mascot
of disabling foolery

Arriving each spring
in his wheeled chair
to witness
and sometimes loudly prophecy,
to entertain with his win/win intentions,
studying compassionate economics
and empowering politics
and enlightening neurological communion
v dissonance.

These aged and playful snowbirds
form a Wisdom Circle
conjoined by all farmers

Committed to Earth’s health care
in humble Vermont neighborhood places
spaces balancing Green Lives Matter races
into organically interdependent co-investments.

This Circle plans cooperative gardens,
MultiCulturally designing
and redesigning shared outdoor climate spaces
in and on now abandoned places
they purchase together
to divest of Green Commons neglect
and invest in a local cooperatively-held enterprise

With land and water and healthy air-based capital
where patient customers
become curious partners
contributing cash
but also labor,
beauty
and nutritional equity,
gracious investment
and/or benignly viral infestment.

This Green Wisdom Circle
plants fruit and nut trees,
vegetables EarthMothers insist they eat
and would like as much as fruit sweet
if they remain of right/left balancing mind.

They plant hemp,
and make baskets
and yoga mats
during dispersed winters
into the retiring diaspora
season for planning futures
of health restoring EarthJustice.

Circles of weavers
and knitters
turn lambs
into shorn sheep
into yarn
into blankets
socks
sweaters
skullcaps
winter masks
with ear muff handles.

Eventually
this Circle will reincarnate Wisdom
into Fire Circles for compline meditations
and story telling
into Singing Circles
of care medication
for young through old,
for those present living now,
and here dead
and yet to arrive
within all sacred regenerating species,

Egos circling within ecosystems,
interweaving networks
of TruthSeeker Circles
sharing win/win BeautyVisions,

Communion Farming Centers
within nonviolent communication systems
for engaging nutritional health,

Sacred ZeroCore recovery Allies,
not Lone Warriors,
within Earth’s fully present
compassionate
care giving as receiving.

Sharing Is Caring

Yesterday
I heard someone say
To cure police
and military violence,
we need a NonTrumpian change of culture.

Sometimes revolutionary changes
include conserving feminist elements
of ancient healing cultures;

Intent to reward multicultural inclusion
rather than hanging on to patriarchal
and capitalistic monocultural supremacy–
a culture of exclusion,
excommunication,
and extraction from Earth’s communal nature
and spirit.

Sometimes we need to restore justice
and peace to our own soil
and souls
before we are ready to grow
healthy seeds of primal relationship,
healthcare,
compassion,
into wealthy win/win Paradise.

I have also heard it said,
If you show mercy
to a sociopath,
And if you merely shun
an imperialistic narcissist,
you will only fuel future selfish outrage.

But, I have lived with oppositional defiance
neurologically hard-wired
for adolescent megalomania
and know that punishment,
revenge,
violence,
anger,
fear,
and hatred fuel further sociopathology

Not fertile healing warmth
of transparent and vulnerable attachment,
healthy curiosity,
abundant care,
nonviolent communication,
compassion,
gratitude for opportunities
to explore win/win polycultural outcomes
ecologically healthy
and communally wealthy
erupting into global healing
theological experience of grace.

My daughter
with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
listens by the hour
to a kids song,
“Sharing is caring.
Be kind to everyone.”

But, we train our police,
and our soldiers
and teach our political party
and economic investors
the opposite
retributive
competitive
hostile
paternalistic
capitalistic
win/lose
zero-sum
monoculturing shadow
of ecofeminist multicultural truth
and beauty,
nature
and spirit.

The false peace of tolerating mutual win/lose hostility
is a sin of freedom’s omission
to reconnect with EarthBeauty’s greater gracious half.

On Doing Nothing

“Do nothing
and everything is done.”
LaoTse

Do no spiritual thing
and every natural climate is finished.

Become no merely natural being
and every spiritual becoming
has already been merrily fulfilled.

Play no win/win nature
and every lose/lose spirit is working out
resolution
integrity
confluence
synergy.

Play only win/win nature
and all lose/lose spirits
zealous
competing
totalitarian
dualistic
bigoted
supremacist
patriarchal
violent
violating
racist
sexist
ageist
xenophobic
narcissistic
egocentric
anthro-testosteroned
become way too much ultra non-violet work
for even the most left-hemisphere dominant
StraightWhiteWesternMale
to become deductively distracted
from inductively healthy
playful
good humored
full moon light for
multiculturing family life.

Do no win/lose capitalistic work
and every win/win playful communion is done.

Or, like he said,
Do No future-planning Thing
and Every past Thing is Done.

There remains
only integrity
of this Moment’s
health-wealthiest play potential.

Who Are We?

In the Work That Reconnects,
we have a dialogue exercise
in which Person A asks Person B
“Who are you?”
several times over a few minutes,
as it feels right to reprime this exploratory pump;
then person B does the same for person A.

The person hosting,
listening,
facilitating,
enabling this reiterative question’s redundant possibilities
remains an echo-present listener,
noticing diversity within these multiple evolving responses,
without judging good,
bad,
ugly,
or even indifferent,
quietly hearing rhythms of longing for love
between crippling cracks of anger and fear,
compelling and compiling self with other hatred,
pathology.

The question,
Do all these diverse self-descriptions truly fit
this same love v anger/fear polyculturing elephant?
does not usually arise.

Rather,
we accept these scrabbling voices
and creolizing hats
and complex feelings
and chaotic ideas
and multiculturing beliefs
co-occurring within one bilateral
positive-health v. negative-pathology mindbody
ecosystem,
seeking Alpha/Omega Point zeroistic fullness
holistic richness,
poly-empathic
polymorphic communication,
design,
development,
co-empathic investment,
and cooperative-integrative implementation outcomes
at the end of this elephant’s rhetorical event,
if not sooner.

Why is this not always the case
when we ask our friends and families,
our public sector leaders
and financial sector investors,
“Who do you hope we are becoming?”

What loves are we preparing to invest in
and which past angers
and future fears
to divest of?

What indicators can I give
that I already invest in cooperatively regenerate
health agendas,
nutritional wealth platforms,
designs and win/win intentions,
co-mentoring therapeutic diapraxis,
active multicultural listening
of which I preach so positively to others?

I know you support restoring regenerative health
to our soil,
and preserving clean water,
as I do.

So does it bother you
as it does me,
that growing Earth pathology
is bicamerally euphemized
eulogized
as inevitable climate “change”?

We say we support cooperatively vibrant
healthy local economies
cultures
good humors
and empowering political vitality,
so does it bother you,
as it does me,
to so often hear “either-or” deductive
left-brain dominant reductivism
and wonder why not first cooperatively consider
ecofeminist “both-and?”

I appreciate what you just said,
and I wonder if adding X,
and even Y,
and maybe even YY=XY,
might make your idea even better.
Do you agree,
or maybe you see concerns
for yourself and/or others
new to me,
of which we might more curiously learn together?

Could a cooperative election,
a vacation from judging and blaming and shaming,
a social-neurological peace revolution campaign,
begin with compiling interdependent win/win hopes
and wishes
and loves of Who Are You?
and Me?
as We?

Thereby more smoothly avoiding win/lose stuckness-traps
of fear and anger
and dissonant
pathological constipation
non-outcomes.

Could investing both-and cooperative listening norms
better lead toward co-investing in healthy wealth,
politically co-empowering policies,
procedural and dialogical compassion transparency,
polyculturally healthy design
and development
and wealthy discernment
of poli-eco-logical therapy
v. multi-morphic climate pathology?

Could deep cooperative listening
co-arise local
through global
health outcome networks,
climax ecstasy as mere everyday eco-normativity,
embracing each and every sacred Person A
and B response
to Who are We?
