Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
pseudo-science,
nondual
nonviolent
inscrutable
paradoxical
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
analogy,
theological ecology.

Polynomials,
western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
free,
liberated,
communal saints
and divided sinners.

Silent Skirmishes

Words as offensive weapons
dwell on ugliness of bad-humored life.

Words as effective tools
dwell on beauty and truth
of good-humored health,
empowerment,
love.

Yet, swords become plowshares.
Plowshares are used as unwieldy swords.
Regenerative intent becomes degenerative chaos.
Degenerative discontent becomes regenerate
tipping point
within silent complexity.

Can words become weapons
for active peace?
And still tools
feeling quietly unresolved internal wars?

Between curious ancient communioned minds
and courageous ego bodies,

Between original health-tooled womb
memories
And today’s wealth-weaponed tidal means,
unsustained strength
yet resiliently flowing ways,
transparent brother dissonance
voicing sister confluence
through empowering vulnerability;
revolutionary stillness
actively listening
between quiet health-wombed rememories.

Wisely employed wellness tools
for feminist well-being weapons;
cooperatively-managed words
for hearing embeautied Truths,
re-seeing Ways,
rekindling communicating Lives;
revolutionary politics,
awesome economics,
wondrous revitalization,
compassionate communion.

Spring Dog and Falling Eagle

Spring Dog,
like any terrorist
I’ve ever not quite met,
not seen eye to eye,
not found knowable,
not fathomable,

Out to see the world
and form colonies
to feed his cancered Ego,

Taught his hungry disciples
that success
goes to those who push
most resiliently.

I have worked on fear
we are heading for a confrontation,
where Earth must win
and Spring Dog must
inevitably
depopulate.

Earth’s journey
away from terror
and toward compassion,
experiences success
with those who cooperatively pull
toward nutritious multicultural resonance.

Spring Dog
dismisses EarthMothers
as too weak
and poor in Spirit,

Not yet realizing
His poor in Spirit
is Falling Eagle’s
rich in cooperative MotheringNature.

Summer Otter
mediates between these ways of seeing
slippery slopes toward owning Earth
encourage Spring Dogs
to treat EarthTribes,
human
and OtherWise,
as natural
unspirited,
secular resources,
owned domesticated elements for harvesting
to feed
and heat
his Winter Hawk nest,
for further capital-infestment

Further fueling Falling Eagles
to pull toward more cooperative
reinvestment.

Impertinent Zealotry

Pertinent Compassion

Impertinence
reminds Roshi Susan Murphy,
refers not only to Trumpian rudeness
crudeness
ruthlessness
but also irrelevance
to Earth’s Kingdom
at Compassionate Healing Hand.

I was watching “Silence”
of zealous colonizing missionaries
learning therapeutic compassion
by growing more relevant to cultures
languages
indigenous to unwashed aliens
suffering from capital-zealous impertinence
of selfishly empowered elites.

This, in turn,
reminded me of Trumpian impertinence
regarding health and safety offensive disregard
of a people,
my people,
our people,
a democratically inclusive nation,
but also,
in this time of growing climate pathologies,
a health-impassioned species

Interdependent with thousands of indigenous alien species,
all breathing invested and divested polluted air
just as fire ebbs and swells,

And dries up all drinking water
just as Earth’s skin absorbs
and impertinently dries out
burns out
plays out
resilient compassion for human colonizing impertinence
climatically building,
evaporating clean air
and pure and pertinent waters
of Earth’s primal safe baptism.

Impertinence is deaf and blind
and capitalistically dumb
in abusive reaction against Earth’s relevant
sacred
health care voices
and multicultural healing intentions.

When Trumpians campaign
and vote against global health care
of pertinent compassion,
boycott audaciously healthy democratic hope,
We are not bicamerally remembered,
heard
and felt
and supported
and well represented
by disregarding past legislating Democrats and Republicans,
and all creolizing in between
conserve and liberate,
who would not deny any creature
an affordable health care
giving and receiving compassionate act,

Which should not be confused
with unaffordable
colonizing
death-supporting zealotry.

Toxic reactions against health and safety
exclude care for and with those most likely to suffer first
from lack of pure and pertinent drinking water
healthy soil
for people
and our interdependent plants,
troubled by zealous smoke and fires
colonizing dried out dispassions
resisting more bicameral healing pertinence
of better healthcare climates
audaciously wealthier
and multiculturally therapeutic past

Wise and pertinent missionaries,
permacultural designers,
compassion empowering facilitators
of and for restoring peaceful justice
arrive on new adventure shores
to grow co-empathic love,
co-passioning health,

First to listen
and learn
indigenous health and climate care values
and core disvalues
already implanted
through sacred MotherEarth’s
green-blue eco-political voices

Democratically speaking of what is least likely resonant
with too violent and zealous forgetting
to see
and hear
and think
impertinence of rude Red horizons
predicting further climates and internal landscapes
of diseased fear and anger
co-arising dispirited and denatured hate

While surrounded still
by Earth’s reciprocal Green-Blue chorus
of more quietly passioned living waters
restoring peace circles
regenerating audaciously warming fires
under cold lent full moon skies
pertinent with healing light compassions.

Binding Conversations

I try to live
and feel
and think
and strategize win/win
in that in-between left and right
systemic ecology and global, multicultural theology,
natural relationships and spiritual polypaths,
resilience and resonance,
yuang and yin
explicating and implicated,
extrinsic and intrinsic,
inhale and exhale,
impression
and depression repression suppression recession oppression,
positive and not negative
1 and 0 double-binary

Universal One:
Our Yang goal,
to merge with multicultural empowerment
beginning with polypathic conservations
of intersectional webs
for regenerative life EarthSystem,
And polyphonic
positive harmonic
liberal lovers

Unitarian Zero:
Yin mentoring
reconnecting
religioning
energy democracy
within cooperative becoming
belonging health
supplanting left-brain dominant egocentered
longing for autonomous
divisive wealth
control
empire-building disempowerment
of all Alien win/lose predators

Universal One:
Rather than colonizing history’s
diversity into a single monocultural Yang dogma,
Taoism, like Zeroism,
is a nondualist philosophical tradition
to which no patriarch
has ever been historically validated
with overpowering win/lose colonizing effectiveness
and capitalistic wealth

Unitarian Zero:
Belonging to Earth’s creolizing
multiculturing ecological process
of regenerative health empowerment,
in a 2020 nonsermon
not entitled “Why Unitarian Universalism is Living”
non-revered EcoFeminists sing
and fire-circle dance
to experience reconnected ecological religion
that has always HolyWind and Spirit
indigenously existed everywhere,
and to which everyone
of polypathic left and polyphonic right
ego/eco-balancing health/wealth note
throughout herstory
has always belonged

Safely
securely
meaningfully
purposefully
sacredly and secularly
spiritually and naturally
theologically and ecologically
yin with yang
right with left
Both/And with Either/Or
intuitively felt and deductively thought
imagined and remembered
reconnected
religioned

win/win compassioned
primally empty empathic ego
and secondarily
bicamerally
fully ecosystemic,
timelessly eternal
becoming and belonging
refining and defining
inhaling and exhaling
precessing and recessing
re-investing and divesting…

Zealots and Evangelists

Within sleepy sheep folds
of retributive divine justice
postponed til kingdom comes
and diva queens go
to hell where we sinfully belong
like all unfaithful Negroes
refusing to shuck and jive
custody of bicameral eyes
and disconnection of stereophonic ears,

Discovering within these quiet unexamined folds
remains an uncreative fundamental tension
between evangelical healing justice
and bad faith zealotry,

Between good news of God’s universal EarthLove
and dark colonizing missionary zeal
to overpower alien health and happiness,
compassion and gratitude for global regenerate nature
spiritual nondualism.

Zealotry of StraightWhiteMale scriptural reconstructions
in Western roots fed by colonization memories
of overpowering violence.

Evangelical multicultural good news
roots are living watered
by creolizing necessities,
communal simplicity,
non-elite sufficiency
found in multiculturing non-violent domestic herstories,
communication circles ecofeminist
compassioned philosophies
of ecologically green resonant theology,
restorative win/win EarthJustice,
permacultural health-system therapies.

Zealotry is born of punishing bad faith
in colonizing memories.

Evangelism is born of healing good faith
in polycultural creolizing visions.

Zealotry is extrinsically LeftBrain dominant
and anti-Christlike.

Evangelism is intrinsically RightBrain prominent
and EarthCreation healing.

Which version of Christianity
do you find supported
by Republican StraightWhiteMale TrumpCards?

How might this compare unfavorably
to GreenDemocrat ecofeminist compassion therapy
if you are more of a Gospel Health-Crusading Evangelical?

UnClassified Intelligence

Health has become climatically important
to understand
as well as experience
a fundamental difference,
and yet psychological
and neurological association,
between colonization
and creolization

For a healthy democracy
within this our extended family,
our benevolent associations,
our wealth-restorative reassociations,
our non-profit corporations,
our national
and state
and local
and global good public health governments
with strong and flowing unclassified intelligence,
contextual,
felt as co-arising co-empathic
and our own self-identity’s Left and Right resonant hemispheres.

Starting with win/lose colonization,
because secular NonSabbath history
is so replete with violence
in this modern capital-industrial competitive era

Of patriarchal and militarized violence
overpowering non-elite
nonCaucasian populations,
natural and spiritual resources,
healthy positive energy commodities,

Colonization employs win/lose self-assertive
insertion
excavating dissociations
demanding compliance
from eco-political non-elite Properties,
commodities human and otherwise.

A narcissist colonizer
may believe he (usually) is a benign colonist
engaging in short-term win/lose violence
to achieve long-term win/win benevolence
resonance
faithful win/win resilience.

A nihilist lose/lose
“I give up” colonizer
might believe Earth’s nature is inherently sinful,
to be overpowered by divine grace,
then burned and raped,
extracted and enslaved
for a vengeful
self-righteous
manic-depressive SacredRight v SecularLeft
mutual interior colonizing war
against egocentric fear and anger
and anthropocentric hate
blindly against Earth’s win/win regenerative,
ecopolitically creolizing,
ecological
co-relational
restorative justice,
co-healing hope
co-empathic peaceful HealthNature.

Which brings us to creolization,
a linguistic ecopolitical term
for non-elite pidgin communications,
normally within a recently overpowered
colonizing context,
in process of becoming a newly co-inspired
win/win multiculturing language,
a prominently celebrating narrative
of our Left/Right
Win/Win healthy/wealth,
our ecopolitically resonant democratic co-governance,
our cooperative ownership and green enlightened management,
as one global
creolizing
transubstantiating
Sabbath communal EarthTribe.

Left v Right win/lose colonization
is a Yang dominant
oppositionally competitive bipolar autocratic face
of Left/Right Win/Win creolization,
Yang/Yin cooperative
democratic co-arising Elite/NonElite
dipolar multiculturing
restorative justice
multiculturally designing
a new healthy climate,
a bilaterally resonant Janus-face
for achieving global climate
polycultural
polypathic
polynomial metaphoric
long-term resilient
health/wealth optimization outcomes.

NonViolent Communication
and Natural/Spiritual Philosophy
lies in recreative
regenerative win/win tension
with win/lose degenerative
pathologically capitalistic
ego-patriarchal colonization.

Feminist Ecolory

When Yin was growing down
and into belonging
still in EarthMother’s warm wet womb,
she followed her interdependent 0-wheels
of enscripted color and sound octaves,

Appreciation for multicultural sensory integrity,
primal relationships of sight and scale
felt polyphonic longing and/or belonging,
meta-physical creolization,
gratitude for polycultural dialogue
and consensual democratic circles
warm to discernment,
co-empathically seeking full-round consensus.

Meanwhile,
as Left-hemisphere dominant Yang
was colonizing out
and patriarching up,
he conserved 1-universal BusinessAsUsual monochrome
in triumphal shades of dark static non-elite nights
and peak triangulated wealth experiences of white
light
universally transcendent bright.

Yang thought in bipolar Either/Ors
of black or white
while Yin felt through dipolar Both/And
circles and cycles
spirals of nuanced multiculturing colors,
tones,
hues and felt cries
and sighs
and shy.

As they learned gratitude
for each Other’s 0/1 GoldenRule
and 1/0 GoldenRatio preferences of bipolar thought
and dipolar intersectional warm feelings of belonging
they deep learned democratic cooperative compassion
for healthy regenerativity
as positively and politically and economically
and ecologically and theologically
and analogically polypathic,

And mutually-owned disdain
for competitive win/lose longing,
reductive RightWing dominating seductive LeftWing
with aggressively monochromatic degenerativity,
negative paradigmatic dissonance,
both cognitively and affectively ineffective

Especially as Yin deeply repurposes growing down
and in
still under MotherEarth’s warming
wetting
multicoloring NonZero-Sum womb
loving democratic
meta-energetic
ecofeminist healing life.

Power Is Personal

So, is this personification
of political systems?
asked the organic ecologist.

Or politicization
of intimately
yet transcendently
secular and sacred
personal economic-nutritional analysis
of health-wealth trends?
asked the macrosystemic economist,
in his rather too long projecting way
of exploring means
and medians
and in-betweens.

And both?
asked the theologian
after listening to each as Other,
DefaultNetworkAssociations (DNA)
betwixt enscriptured lines
of historical metaphonics.

Just because we do not reside together,
sharing identical labels,
need not mean we journey apart.

Just because my neighbor,
my enemy,
those I don’t know,
those I fear,
former friends and family who have angered me
believe in a personal God
the Supreme Straight White Father theology
does not mean they,
like I,
can not also feel Earth’s climate
like an interpersonal Gaian ecology
of healthy sacred regenerative emergence
into a win/win superlative
rapturous future life together
more healthy than residing degeneratively apart.

We all speak the same emotional language.
Humor and health, good and bad,
speaks and sings and dances and enacts
and dirges and reacts
a universal win/win,
win/lose,
lose/lose bilateral climate language;
eco-political heaven
and hell,
and all that lies more mundanely in-between
killing us climate softly.

Just as adolescent loss
of a lover to suicide
steps into an endless shaming/blaming toxic story
of depression,
ego-repression,
ecosystemic suppression
of positive affect,
of hope for healthy relationship,
of faith in wealthy resonant communication,

So too
it is not theologically
or ecologically
or ego-rationally insane
to fear,
and become angered by
genocide of our entire species
shamed by our own stubborn win/lose dissociation,
climate capital-pigheaded
stiff-necked degeneration,
rabid suicide ideation
through lack of Golden Rule Rapture,
win/win integrity,
theo-eco-ego triumphal integration.
