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

Disempowering Systems

Systemic racism
is a social/cultural pattern
of racial prejudice
originating within individuals
and their anecdotal experiences
and lack of multiculturally enriching discernment

Shedding light,
and shredding dark,
power analysis,
political and economic,
on patterns of white privileged events
unveils systemic patterns of win/lose empowered privilege
and disempowering lose/lose prejudices,
race and male and heterosexual privileged
anthropocentric unredeeming
lack of communication
events.

Take, for example,
a power analysis of John 3:16:

For God so loved the world [Earth and EarthCreatures]
That He gave His only begotten Son [patriarchal frame]
So that whosoever believes in Him
Shall not perish
But have eternal life.

Literalist
Fundamentalist
Conservative
Evangelical Christians
(should this prove not to be a complex oxymoron)
have supplanted believing in God’s radically interdependent EarthLove
(first phrase)
with doctrinal belief in Jesus of Nazareth
as God’s only begotten, privileged
humane/divine hybrid Son of
StraightWesternWhiteMale
LeftBrain Dominant
Military-Industrialized
Retributive Win/Lose Judging God.

This substitution of belief
in the privileged sacred status
of a Jewish male Teacher
and Prophet,
sharing his potentially viral experience
of Jewish AbbaCreator
as win/win power of universal multiculturing
regenerative Love,
is a culturally profound
early straight white western
(not particularly eastern nature/spirit nondualistic)
privileged-prejudicial moment
of defining God’s economic
and politically empowering grace
in troubling oppositional terms:

First phrase, Regenerative Source is universal Love,
and, third phrase,
Regenerative Source is historically-culturally,
systemically racist.

If, to be orthodox and effectively Christian
is to be spiritually privileged,
then those not born into evangelical Christian homes,
King James Bible reading communities,
Western dominating cultures
are disproportionately
and systematically
and historically under privileged,
disempowered
unredeemed
with less win/win graced
direct experience of Love
Light
Word internal/external
ego-refining/ecopolitical-defining win/win
potential spiritual/natural life optimizers.

Jesus of Nazareth’s prime experiential teaching,
story telling
prophetic “God is multiculturing universal win/win Love”
not revengeful monoculturing
win/lose systemic
racist Judge

Is not resonantly heard,
not resiliently felt,
neither tasted nor seen
through eyes and ears,
hands and heart,
mouth and nose
of straight white male privilege

Too leftbrain dominant
to divinely know
and nondualistically respect
appreciate
primacy of empowering cooperative green/blue Love experience
over disempowering competitive redblooded Lust
for theologically dogmatic unecological lack of relationship,
anthropocentric
xenophobic
narcissistic
individualistic ego-salvific power

To claim sacred wealth of life
for yourself and only your Tribe
by denying truths of sacred/secular empowerment
through win/win cooperative everyday experience
of communion
throughout all EarthTribes

Divine/humane
right/left
yin/yang
green/red
nonviolent communicating Light
of ChristMass Love
Words
Stories of CoRedemption

Democratic,
not autocratic,
experiences both ecologically natural
and theologically spiritual;

Devoid
Cleansed
Wiped Clean of racist,
straight male dominant,
leftbrain misculturing
unhealthy
unwealthy supremacy.

Doors to Power Perception

Sogyal Rinpoche
tells a Doors to Perception story.

Positive and negative feeling individuals
bear witness to a river.

Those more goddess-like
see this river as great
savory
fragrant
nutritious
beautifully resonant
musically harmonic
multiculturally rich,
a transporter of karmic mediation
preferring win/win cooperative
ecofeminist
green energy conservational
and black lives matter liberally transubstantiating
Earth’s indigenous Right
and endogenous Left,
androgynous Left
deducing Right’s inductive
sacred seductive
empowerment values.

And
We are those more patriarchal straight white privileged.
Whether monoculturing husbands
or suppressed green ecofeminist
EarthMothers with dam-bursting restorative justice rights
to vote for miserably polarized
and contentious speakers,
rather than more cooperatively discerning
non-violently active listeners,
health care resonant researchers
and climate care legislators
and benignly win/win trans-reformative administrators

Religiously remaining focused
and spiritually framed
on how hellishly ravaged
our monotheistic
and competitive monopolistic
theocratic win/lose assumptions
about river grace racing economies
have become polluted
toxic waste streams
ending in chemically satiated swamps
rather than healthy river mouths

Positive power suppressed negative karma
about the eyes of Goddess Earth Visions
and the ears of Evangelical HellRaisers
Patriarchal Terrorists
Narcissistic MonoTheocrats

Evaporating into
lose/lose monoculturing warp-drive,

aka “Climate CHANGE”
equals Earth’s ZeroZone summative core

Full=1.00%
Empty=00%
PatriarchalYang power
perceptual prejudice

And yet,
this Doors of Perception story
ends with the assumption
of Incommensurable EcoSystemic Information,
further logically concluding
from this enthymematic
unstated win/lose assumption
about the empowering value of co-empathic feelings,
of sacred green eco-feminist compassion,
of standing downstream of history’s polyculturing
multiculturing
resonantly resilient healthy wealth multicultural flow system,
the ZeroZone Capital ReSource
of the River’s flowing downhill acquisitive structure,

Both bipolarized banks agree,
flowing downstream health power
is our humane economic resource
and Earth’s political ZeroZone Source

Of whatever that redemptive baptismal
and sacred cleansing
nutritious
nurturing water
cooperatively-owned
and altruistically managed

And/or polluted,
toxic waste stream

MotherEarth owned
and transported
by deep learning river beds
of communication health power dreams
of ecosystemic communication delivery

Become power systems of neurologically win/win
v win/lose
v lose/lose
polyphonically bicameral
felt integral and holy,
healthy and safe,
wealthy and beautiful

Rightbrain wild
and leftbrain infamous,

Goddess EarthTribal
and Patriarchally Hellish,

Yin trans-regenerating
Yang’s anthrocentric ZeroZone
secular/sacred Source
for material and temporal ReSources

To notice each river’s full rainbow
of whatever you call that flowing
as compassionately downstream
as time flows
water-powered energy
from up to down

As Earth-born nutritional delivery systems
root down to up sunlight,
as air-born nutrients
burn daily East to West,
when facing the river bed’s Northern Source,
also Right to Left
North in winter’s frozen discontent,
South in summer’s midstream swelling climax.

2020 Roaring Constitutional ReConstructions

Alan Simpson,
a Wyoming Republican,
not known for his socialist ways
nor his sacred communion means of public discourse,
cried out in our Great Dark Night
of white bold
and climate cold
fragility,

“Money’s dominance over politics
isn’t merely one problem of many
our country faces.
It is the problem!”

Perhaps neither Wyoming
Republicans
or Alan Simpson
would mind this contextual paraphrase,

Capitalism’s competitive
LeftBrain cultural and educational systemic dominance
against healthy multicultural empowering politics
isn’t merely one complex problem
of many win/lose communication complications
our 2020 Species faces,

Yet does not RightBrain see
as absence of WinLeft/WinRight cultural
and climate
intersectional wisdom.

We have become LeftBrain predative
partisan capitalists;
THE win/lose,
degenerating toward lose/lose economic-political
climate problems
of either/or partisanship,
religious fundamental bipolar creeds of elitist bad faith,
tolerant of secularized apartheid

Devoid of sacred active win/win hope
for organic ecological theology
or theologically health-metaphoric
muse-metaphonic
music-polyphonic
harmonic metapathic
resonant polypathic
resiliently co-empathic
co-passionate ego/ecology.

All of which
strangely reduces Alan Simpson’s original version
to a summary democratic constitution
condensed milk of RightBrain both/and flexible resonance
urgently, yet more warmly,
seeking health/wealth rememory
regrowing out and in climate cultures
toward expanding win/win global family.

Restoring Deeply Conservative Progress

Our old nemesis,
capitalism,
is much older than democratic theory,
and even older than profoundly resilient democratic practice,
which is rather like Christianity–
often communion preached
and seldom democratically and multiculturally proficient,
fruitful,
viral,
contagious,
multiplying economic loaves
and politically empowering fish.

Capital-rooted values
derive from tribal chiefs,
professional healers and clergy,
and, more recently,
in the era of empires and nation-states,
royalty miraculously arriving by divine right
and sacramental enlightenment
of Elite EcoPolitical Persons,
recognized by exclusive rights of supremely royal birth–
entirely dissociated from loyalty of natural systemic rebirth.

When democratic political theory of inclusive,
non-elite,
eventually ecofeminist empowerment developed
into our straight white patriarchal U.S. Constitution,
we did not have enough multicultural experience,
and ecologically regenerative understanding,
to recognize that democracy is rooted in feelings of trust
and economic cooperative experience,
co-investment in what Game Theorists define as

NonZeroSum Win/Win ecopolitical outcome resilience

Resonant experience of cooperative ownership,
stewardship of compassionate properties
that can only be immorally misunderstood
as autonomously purchased with capital
and therefore ethically owned
controlled
exploited
deflowered.

Organic self/other
ego/eco
left/right bicameral management
remains conservatively rooted
in feelings of historic and cultural solidarity
on progressive journey toward resonant secular meaning
and resiliently sacred purpose.

Instead of noting that health
and well-being
and prosperity are endemic to cooperative win/win health systems
more than the chronic stress
typical of competitive win/lose strategies,
U.S. democracy is conservatively assumed to protect and defend capitalism,

Exclusively private wealth-accumulation,
and later incorporated anthropocentric self-investment
dissociated from OtherEarth Matriarchy,
becomes de-royalized personal patriarchal ownership.

Divine powers
and personhood
become disassociated from royalty
by right of birth,
and democratically re-associated with everyday inheritance
of anthropocentric royalty
accompanied by requisite meritocracy
of past familial,
and private corporate,
capital-wealth accumulation.

God the Father’s blessing
is evinced by bounteous ownership of currency;
not to be confused with natural energy democracy,
powers of naturally recycling currents of motion,
emotion
immolation
demotion
re-motion
premonition

At this point,
democratic health
and ecological/theological resilience
have been dissociated from moral virtue,
divorced from cooperative win/win wealthy systems
and divested from multicultural womanist networks
of co-empathic empowerment.

Our task,
rooted in this historic-cultural ecology of theological history,
Left/Right bicameral analysis,
may be seen as how to win more resources for and with non-elites,
left marginalized by win/lose rightwing capitalism,
no longer aligned with a green democratic trust
non-violent agenda for peace restoring EarthJustice;

As Jesus of Nazareth probably said,
we will always have the poor with us,
within us,
even if only poor in anti-natural,
unlovely and felt unloved, spirit.

We might also see this Great Transition
as a multicultural challenge
to deeply conserve healthy democratic progress,

Great opportunity to Reweave capitalism
into cooperatively-invested health care,
matriarchal giving while patriarchal receiving empowering
win-Self/win-Other models
for non-violent relationships
with Earth’s global climate,
with Interpersonal EgoSystemic CoOperating CoInvestment climates,
and MultiCultural EcoSystemic climates

Cooperatively polypathic/polyphonic,
left/right
universal/unitarian
yang/yintegrity
atomic/wave-linear co-relational
envisioned/deeply sensed empowerment,
renewing enlightenment era democratic resilient health
as also resonant economic wealth,

Promising compassionate
polycultural-nutritional-deeply prosperous
natural/spiritual outcomes.

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.

Hijacked Identity

I awake again with this left-brain thought
that an economic conservative
about balancing his ever expanding budget
looks at my mountainside forest of firs
as a green commodity
for potential exploitation.

Yet when this same conservative
resides in this same fir forest,
now threatened by a large lumbering corporation,
he sees these same trees,
like himself,
as prey
in a win/lose zero-sum value-retention game.

Then I have this right brain passion
that an ego/eco-logically harmonic nondualist,
all about right responsible relationships,
feels and acts with compassion toward these same trees
in this cooperative win/win forest
internally governed by WiseElder firs, regenerative,
from whom we learn
to nutritionally
resiliently,
naturally,
spiritually climax
and recommence together, after loss,
in secular/sacred solidarity
of co-passioning seeds
structured to anticipate four-seasoned wealth givers
and receivers
of Earth’s forested pro-active health care,
robustly optimizing self/other value maintenance.

These reviewed landscapes are not mutually exclusive.
Yet only the last is cooperatively left and right
nondualistically inclusive,
like ethical truth with aesthetic beauty,
compassion spiritually foresting natural integrity.

Relationships Difficult to Imagine

It’s difficult to imagine
a liberal hearing “capitalism”
where a conservative fears too progressively individualistic
“liberalism,”

It may be difficult to imagine
too liberal with win/lose secular commodification
of fragmented life,
choosing majority rule democratic process compromises,
sacrifices of disorganized rabblish losers,
played as if we were win/lose tokens
in an epic Monotony Game,
each autonomously hoping to be reborn
into privileged status,
to wear the final egocentric crown
before all the less fortunate losers wander off
in cynical despair
of ever winning life’s final multi-regenerational lottery.

It’s difficult to imagine
a too liberal Both/And RightBrain
patiently suffering,
tolerating,
sometimes wrecklessly codepending on
a too conservative Either/Or LeftBrain
monoculturing
capital-hoarding economist,
a strictly utilitarian
technocaratic
patriarchal
bureaucratic monopolist
monotheist,
sleepy and unfeeling monotonist.

It’s difficult to imagine
a LeftBrain
dominated only with win/win compassion
to restore global Earth-centered justice
and multiculturing peace
as a more appropriate response
to climates of bicameral partisanship,
inside Left with Right hemispheres
as outside West with East,
conserving both transcendent sainthood
and not losing incarnate soul,
playing Win/Win nice with
Win liberally compassionate multicultural empowerment
and Win conservative health-wealth economies
of evangelical
natural-spiritual
ego/eco-governance.

It’s difficult to imagine
living fully without original primal
double-binding
not-not ZeroSum nurturing memory
of EarthMother’s wombed Paradise,
spoken through listening voices
of transubstantiating DNA instructions
for personal through global resilient 4D regeneration.

It’s difficult to remember
when LeftBrain natural spring health
also meant RightBrain spiritual autumn wealth
of economic empowering co-passion.

The UnAlter Call

Our UU ecofeminist minister
was verbally accosted one Sunday morning
after celebrating multicultural peace
and respect
and integrity
sufficient to restore private ego- and public eco-justice.

This was far too much to take in,
to peacefully and holistically rake in,
for a visiting,
perhaps stalking,
apartheid anti-socialist

Whose most engaging
personable mentors and teachers
had already shared the correct win/lose answers,
either true or false,
either sacred or secular,
either spiritual strength or natural relativistic evil
of right-brain’s both/and integral tolerance-stretching levels,

Which his left-brain never over-indulges
much less dances
or sings with,
in multicultural head and heart voice.

So he angrily confronted
our UU minister
with “You must not tolerate such eclectic multicultural celebration!
These and those deviants are too wounded by original sin
for God to authoritatively save
from your universally wrong uniting perdition.
We need non-partitioned apartheid to sever us best
from those others, too wildly sensual and sinful worst
misbegotten creatures of Satan!”

“I cannot tolerate such radical integrity
or even, maybe odd, tolerance
to sing and dance,
to sit and pray,
to stand and march
polypathically and polyphonically together.
Especially on a sacred Sunday morning
when you should be worshiping God of time’s revolutionary creation,
polyculturally completed in seven 24-hour days
and monotheistic nights.”

“You should be on your knees
to the One true jealous and punishing win/lose Father!”

Our ordained covenant-keeper of universal resonance
and unitarian resilience,
concerned about whether Father MonoGod might be left-brain armed,
informed her avowed antagonist,
a clear and way too present threat
to building interdependent win/win webs
where all his win/lose walled-off answers
somberly declared ‘don’t even think about feeling deviantly
about anything!’

“Like you
I do not tolerate intolerance
when it is shouted against me,
but perhaps when morally appropriate boundaries for tolerance are asked
and invited for discussion
while actually hoping for some response
that could include all of us
if willing to change enough
to tolerate compassionate criticism
for not beginning with questions “Why?”
before providing answers to What
you and I must not find
appropriate to tolerate.”

Then she asked me to drum our drums
and sing a healing song
while she danced and shook a consecrated rattle
in smoky incensed circles
like any witch doctor might think to sternly do,

Whether tongue in cheek
or not
I could not say,
as I was singing
and beating her rhythms
with integrity of tolerance,
in mutual celebration
of great transitional nudging questions

And not not knotted paradox
of not tolerating double-bound intolerance
within as not without

And hating haters
which seems difficult for consistent self-esteem
and win-me/win-you co-integration,
or even win-left/win-right ego/eco-transubstantiation.

Our mono-supreme nationalist,
hater of radical sabbath love,
did not speak of his surprise
but effectively and affectively acted
with discomforted exit
and discomforting alarm.

I’m sure with many questions
but probably not better ones
than his pre-existing either/or condition
would allow in tolerable responses.

Which seems sad.
A lost opportunity,
for our ego/ecofeminist minister
and music me,
to nudge and stretch and grow
our tolerant co-integrity

To tolerate violating answers
to win/win questions
he, then we,
forgot to ask
about this paradox of hating haters
and only loving privileged lovers

Reminding me of several songs
about growing in love with love’s mankind,
but not sabbath people
in heat against hate,
sad about despair,
glad about integrity of wealthy mental health.

Wait A Minute!

Did I hear that wrong?

On my way for another appointment
with the vampire bleeding Quest,
big stage conversations on the radio
travel way too fast
for me to stay tuned in
at my normal liberal-conserving pace.

A single new mom
is surprised to learn about herself.
Her post-parted mother self
is less excited about getting back to work
out in the “real world.”

Wait a minute!
When did the real nurturing home environment
become the unreal world?

Back when most of us were serfs
and slaves,
shipping clerks
and slap-happy farmer families,
wasn’t family life cultural realness?
And outside employment
our unreal
mechanistic crazy ant-nestedness?

When and why did that turn
right side down?

Then she argued,
without waiting for slow to learn me,
against those who blame the childcare victim
by challenging employers AND employees
to do better
balancing work and home life
with bi-transcendent presence.

She finds this adds undue bilocation pressure
on parents to find ever more efficient
and effective employee-parent balancing acts
in multi-tasking lack of fully engaged bicameral presence.

We need systemic change,
she says,
although I fear that’s what Donald Trump would also say,
in another UnReal Wounded World’s competitive runaway favor.

Wait a minute!
Don’t throw out the new-balancing baby
with our dirty economic laundry water!
Don’t argue against Ego/Eco balance needed
to embrace, again,
healthy Cultural Balance.

A culture so out of balance
that competitive Win/Lose economies
now monopolize our encultured RealWorld,
and cooperative Win/Win parent/child empowerment
has become privatized UnReal Healthy CounterCulture.

Then, less than a minute later,
Republican spokespersons
described President Trump as vindicated
by Mueller’s executive report
finding insufficient information to prove collusion
with Russia
and/or obstruction of justice
within America.

Wait a minute!
Is no proof of colluding with a violent
totalitarian
kleptocratic regime
threatened by our flagging healthy transparent democratic culture
and cooperative Win/Win mutual empowerment,
really vindicating
an out-loud vindictive plutocrat
too smart to go to Vietnam
and too slick to campaign for principles of un-commodified love and integrity
rather than against recession of pathological hate and mendacity?

First, he said Russia
was helping Hillary in the voting booths
of 2016.

Then, when it became clear some foreign agency
was trying to help him by hurting her,
He said it wasn’t his good buddy Putin
or his Allies.

Then, when it became clear
it was Kremlin-sponsored interference,
He said, repeatedly, No Collusion!
because his campaign knew absolutely nothing
about anything
(which, out of context, sounds plausible).

Then, when it became clear
his campaigners did meet with Russian representatives
offering to do the political nasty
to Hillary,
He said, just “No Collusion!”
without qualifiers.

Then, when it became clear
the Trump campaign had nothing to say
about having met, without reporting, foreign agents
involved in dirty propaganda tricks
in U.S. media markets,
He still said only “No Collusion!”

But, wait a minute!
Now we have been asking
why wouldn’t a patriotic nationalist leader
true-blue military industrially empowered
not jump out of his white privileged skin
to be the first to squeal on the bad bully guys
for playing mean loser-take-all
disempowering undemocratic politics?

Wait a minute!
Short of transparently unveiling how the Trump campaign
proactively attempted to let everyone know
these hostile actions taken
against the integrity of our democratic electoral system
for RealWorld informed voters,
how is No Collusion! (probably)
sufficient to vindicate
some nationally elected leader of a wounded democracy
apparently intent on breaking all Ten Cooperative Commandments
as shamelessly as possible?

Wait a minute!
What happened to obstruction of healthy restoring-trust
bicameral justice?

By the time I returned home
to my RealWorld,
I was already exhausted
trying to keep up with
a patriarchally privileged
Win/Lose
UnReal
left-unmindful dominant brain
right-mind suppressed
with monoculturing
colonizing
secularizing
privatizing
narcissistic bullying intent.

I’ll be alright though…
Just give me a minute.
