Supremely Courted Systemic Feelings

I believe it was Alfred North Whitehead,
an early developer of cognitive systems thinking,
who observed frequent miscommunication
and confusion
and chaos
over bilateral complexities
of Set v isolated Individual issues
within a systemic set
of inter-related issues.

This comes to mind
as I listen to another lose/lose partisan debate
about democratic U.S. civil defense
of appropriate constitutional law
and socially egalitarian order
during this current SupremeCourt
public badgering
bullying
verbal ballistics.

A question is asked
in defense of
an individual health care policy
scheduled to soon reappear
on the constitutionally controversial
democratic health care
and resilient wealth defensive
Supreme Court docket.

Yet the democratic historical system
of evolving eco-political enculturation
education
expansion
win/win reflection
co-invested viral multicultural infestation
global and local peace restoration
(not so much win/lose pontification)
is seldom explicitly voiced
as a shared discussion experience
bicamerally favoring global health outcomes
through mediating and mentoring
compassionate communication safety.

In part
because systemic questions
frames
contextual intelligence
curiosity about responsibly held concerns
are better processed
more democratic-health accessible
more empowered
more enlightened
through open-systemic dialogue
than closed win/lose individualistic egocentered debate.

A central multicultural systemic question
has to do with the U.S. constitution
as a de-contextualized
de-historical monocultural dogmatic document
of a closed set democratic rights tradition
both static
and fundamentally originalist
as Democracy’s Holy Grail

Standing apart from a regenerative EarthSystem
of expanding
enlightening
empowering
democratizing win/win co-empathic history
extending our family
and sacred tribal
and secular state consciousness
to include all public life-health systems
for restoring justice
and compassionate peace-felt communication networks.

Which was more the multicultural value mindset
of Enlightenment Era
constitution-signing
U.S. StraightWhitePatriarchal ForeFathers,
largely left-brain dominantly educated
and competitively rewarded
for verbal debate acumen
more than more right-brain
ego/eco-systemic thinking and feelings
potentially win/win healing
more than win/lose further elitist wounding.

Declaring democratic health
interdependently determined to promote optimal
integral well-being
by turning away from

Autonomous apartheid
hierarchical defensiveness,
patriarchal,
supremely narcissistic
from-above
closed
unchanging
divinely designated elite monoculturalism
monotheism
egocentrism
anthropocentrism
of a StraightWhiteMale
made in God’s patriarchal capitalist
win/lose jealous and punishing
retributive,
and not redemptively re-distributive,
EarthHistoric System

As if a ProDeath Network
of compromised competition choices
too comfortable with military-industrialized
win/lose defense of democratic nationalist constitutionalism
rather than win/win compassion
for democratic global natural/spiritual
bicameral
bilateral
binomial communication-empowering systemic health
evolving
revolving harmonically resonant Constitutions
accessible to past through future optimizing
public and climate health wealth

To, eventually,
as historic multicultural consciousness expands,
and restorative egalitarian justice systems evolve,
as RightBrain interdependent enlightenment flows out,
and as LeftBrain ego/eco-centering empowerment strengthens,

Become a truer
more multi-goodfaith balanced,
healthy systemic democracy
of and for all residents,
humane natures
and divine spirits,
people and plants
and bioregionally cooperative
win/win
healthy systemic
local through global planet.

A better systemic question
for a healthier democratic nation
and Earth:

How do you support
the continuing eco-political WinElite and WinNonElite
emergence of empowering health care giving
and enlightened wealth care receiving
within your own growing
resonant and resilient
multiculturally co-empathic communicating
EarthJustice system?

Or are your mentoring
and modeling aspirations
for healthy interdependence
for wealthy multicultural democratic values
somewhat less enlightened
and more disempowering
than supporting our original democratic experiment
in ongoing self/other GoldenRule
evolving co-governance systems?

Responsible and co-responsive,
vulnerable and transparent,
actively curious and quietly courageous,
win/win committed yet good faith humored,
anti-unrepentent predative monoculturing systems
by multiculturally favoring
restorative healing democratic justice

For all God’s sacred creations
voices
climates
cultures
held in original historic
pre-historic,
verbal and non-verbal and pre-verbal
healthy democratic World SystemicView
and View of EgoRecentering
CoAcclimating
CoPassionate Communicating mindbodies
of sensory reception
collaborative absorption
synergetic digestion
neural-integral multicultural communication
systems
invoking organic individual
yet integrally singing and dancing
resonant
and resilient,
sacred
and secular,
theological
and ecological,
internal
with external,
egocentered
with ecosystemic voices.

Agreeing to DisAgree

I have noticed
in negative strong
long feeling settings
a willingness
to accept impatience
to reluctantly embrace tolerance
and Agree to DisAgree.

Yet, to equate this conclusion
with cooperatively
and actively Agreeing to Positively Agree
with anticipation
rather than further win/lose anxiety
would be to overvalue tolerance
and to underestimate
differences between systemic logic
and self-deceiving fallacy.

We do not meet
win/win standards of nonviolently held energy,
powers of positive communication praxis,
by Agreeing to DisAgree,
shrugging
and leaving the dialogue
with win or lose, who knows?
back to hopeless stuckness,
but now further entrenched
in frustrating
increasingly impatient,
look some other way
tolerance

Of a society
too dumb to GoldenRule agree
to act as decent as a healthy family,

And too ignorant
to co-invest in present
and future green integrity.

To believe agreeing to disagree
is sufficient for short-term bridges,
let us be forewarned
agreeing to not yet agree
on reassuring regenerative plans
for healthy green democracy,

Is quite far from cooperative value enhancements
of agreeing to co-passionately agree
we are here together
for all EarthTribe’s health and safety

Multiculturally cooperative
eco-political regenerativity,
revolutionary 20/20
democratic positive energy.

Cancel Culture

Dear Donald,

Your emperor’s nakedness
is transparently showing
in increasingly risky
vulnerable political ways.

Thought I should remind you,
“Counter Culture”
is short
for Anti-Multicultural Health Care
politically giving
and economically receiving,
sacredly empowering
and secularly enlightening
cooperative co-investments
in global health
of compassionate wealth.

Other than your handful of retweets,
you could teach yourself to un-narcissistically see
and hear,
kindly touch
and responsibly feel,
millions of silent
resistant
non-retweets

From those feeling not too safe
about our healthy futures
as individuals
and as residents of a living planet.

Your neglected ecotherapist,

MultiCulturing MotherEarth

Silent UnPrivileged Stories

When I was a Big Brother
for Jason,
an African-American 10 year old male,
we went into his apartment
so he could look around
for a long overdue library book.

As I accompanied him
from room to sparsely furnished room,
looking in nearly vacant closets,
cupboards,
drawers,
the only book we found
was a phone book,
looking silently neglected
much more than actively abused.

My first white male privileged
feelings about his Mom
had to do with blaming her
for probably not even feeling ashamed
for her irresponsible choices
while economically and politically administering
their bookless house
in this pre-WWW information age.

But, then I began asking questions.
What could Jason tell me
about his Mom’s life
when she was his age?

What were stories
familiar to her,
read
or retold
or experienced
and re-experienced,
therapeutic or traumatic?

Through this widening narrative moment
of multigenerational conjecture,
hypothesis,
questioning,
contemplating,

I also learned to question
what traumatic straight white male stories
are experienced by gay
and bisexual
and transsexual 10-year-olds,
regardless of racial identification,

And by 10-year-old girls,
perhaps regardless of racial identification,
or even further amplified
by being doubly,
and silently, outside
straight white patriarchal privilege.

I found myself
suddenly
tearfully
incapable of briefly imagining
much less deeply,
unflinchingly contemplating
the trauma
of growing up poor
and lesbian
and black or brown
or too red
or too yellow
without any books
or stories,
read
or retold
or experienced
about how her 10-year-old life will matter,
could be healthy, someday,
would ever be felt safe,
unless held shamefully silent,

Not appropriate material
for books
or retelling
or experiencing straight
white
male dominant stories,
economic
and political narratives
about retributive trauma
and not multicultural
restorative
democratically inclusive therapy.

A Feel for White Privilege

Sometimes I need to hear
what straight white male dominant privilege
what racism
what degenerative ungreen anthro-supremacism
what xenophobia and yin-repression
what homophobia sounds like
and smells sour and acrid and decaying

Before I can fully appreciate,
invest in,
and investigate what regenerative EarthJustice
and multicultural communion
eco-womanist green resilient health care trends,
climate optimizing wealth
inclusively democratic cooperative reweaving
looks like

And feels more like
a robust organic garden

Than extracted
exhausted
deduced-reduced
irreparably severed
fracked
fornicating
capital-hoarding oil and gas fields

Or kleptocratic
partisan
military-industrial business parties

Where not wearing masks
has become a denialist symbol
of health disdain
as compared to financial profit worship,

Climate and culture of wealth-fundamentalists
and anti-SacredEarth evangelicals
and unpatriotic disowners
disloyal to Earth’s healthy democratic constitution.

Sometimes I need
a degenerative religiously fascist reminder
Where there is no healthy EarthCentric culture,
There could be
No resiliently regenerative
multiculturally democratic
healthy climate.

My Economic Life, and Death

My life thoughts darkly whisper
of mortality,
hidden,
like shame,

As my death lightly wanders
through eternity,
infinite,
like timelessness.

Economic wealth roots from light,
enlightenment
as
Political health branches through power,
empowerment.

Space captures deducted form
as
Time frees inductive function

As punishing absence of peace exhales
bad monotheistic climates
so restoring justice can refill
creolizing multicultures,
co-passionate dipolar co-arisings
like life
and death
and bicameral paradox
bilateral fractal box
in-between

Space invites unconfined energy,
co-gravitating as
Time remembers unSourced energy,
democratically uniting co-passions
throughout past
and future regenerations.

Left hemisphere ergodically longs
to restore immortal justice
as
Right hemisphere ionically belongs
to wondrously interdependent
contextual
multicultural
transubstantiating
synergetic
holonic
holy
sacred peace
Kingdoms of God
QueenSeas of EarthMother Wombs,
Fathers
and HolonicWinds/HolyWaves.

Yang invests in ecosystemic light
as
Yin divests of egocentric
economic
capitalistic
win/lose anthro-centric
anti-ecological
degenerative
patriarchally predative
LeftBrain monoculturally dominating
power.

Economically cooperative experiences
darkly whisper of mortality,
hidden,
like egotistic shame,

UnCompetitive fear of death lustily wanders
through enculturing eternity,
infinite history,
like angry timelessness.

Permacultural Grace

I wonder what it means
we are a multicultural species
still capable of waging war,
employing ballistic terrorists,
investing in capitalism’s ruthless game
of surgical monopoly
to become patriarchs of bloodied mountains,

This feels related,
perhaps co-arising,
with inability to distinguish
an ecology of natural grace
from an efficient economy of spiritual just rewards,

Ego’s self-righteous returns
for prudent win/lose strategic investment
in owning Earth,
pieces of the property pie,
and renting human secularized resources
by the mundane weekday hour,
or contractual time-clock year

Leaving behind jubilee years
hopes and tears
and sabbaths
for those naturally deprived
and spiritually poor;
meat to feed future real-world war machines.

Victories and defeats in war,
terror,
shouting-matches,
strategic aggression against maligned characters,
colonizing predation,
political and religious monopolization
of win/lose investments
in overpowering persuasion–
These can all be earned,
but not graced.

Love,
life,
health,
natural/spiritual hybrid wealth,
awe,
compassion,
gratitude,
kindness,
mercy,
cooperativity,
synergy,
regenerativity,
integrity,
restoration,
resonance,
healing,
co-redemption,
communion–
These are signs and wonders,
powers and co-arising principalities
of wondrous grace,
and cannot be earned
or reductively unlearned.

What could be evolving purpose
in outrageously degenerative wars,
deliberate intent to terrorize
and counter-terrorize,
hate,
oscillating cycles of anger and fear,
evil humors
and cynical financial investments
against each sacred Other,
against Earth’s habitual health?

What could be revolving meaning
in ecosystemic wealth
of co-passionate powers,
religions of polycultural kindness,
multicultures of cooperative integrity,
Earth’s sacred economies
of permaculturing grace?

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?

Social Engagement

She says she’s fine with it

With social distancing

It’s her normal defiant
absence of resonant integrity.

In fact,
thanks to the magic of World Wide Webs
she now has all day
to bask in messages she can choose
as resonant
and “bad” humored dissonant
social engagement
and political disengagement,
empowering
and disempowering
now her whole day/night choice
of sounds good-humored sung
and bad-rumored hung
out for risky social distance voice.

Polyphonic prosody
is like polypathic integrity
except older,
often wiser,
healthier
and wealthier.

Harmonic humored sounds
predict virally rumored rounds
of global ego/eco-therapy,
bicamerally wiser resonance,
bilaterally health systemic resilient
and wealth politically economic

Power tensions,
as my oppositionally defiant daughter
might more mindfully intend,
resound “Fine!!!!!!!!!!!”
roared like a weapon
might not(not) question double-rewinding Fine?
if you could ask me nicely for a hug
so we return to smiling, Fine

As pastel hugs
and shrugs
dawning viral light.
