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.

Seeking Sanctuary

Diaspora Dwellings

On my way into our sanctuary
this past Sunday morning
a woman I had met in choir
was strangely inclined
to share her family history.

Her dad came over from Ireland
because he wanted better opportunities
for his healthy future.

Here he meets his wife
and they have kids
who also have kids
now living the post-millennial nightmare
of what the TrumpCard worshiping U.S.
has most degeneratively isolationist become.

I mentioned that I had never been.
My made-in-Ireland newsboy hat
had only hung in U.S. pubs,
mostly not so green as we might wish,
and had only covered my North American dreams
of a more robust wealth
of future health
for myself
and my African American husband
and our four adopted brown-skin wounded kids
with mental and physical,
mind and body,
spirit and soul uncompetitive challenges.

Challenges now further threatened by bleak climate choices
to pursue RightWing Business As Assault
Competitions to extract Earth’s ecofeminist original values
faster
and faster
and harder thrusting against naked wombs,
angry and filled with fear
we cannot hoard enough power
against the Great Winter
of our own LeftBrain dominant
paranoid prophecy.

And increasingly schizophrenic,
don’t you sometimes inside-outside Voices think?
My new fellow diaspora migrant added,
cooperatively curious,
and not at all competitively overpowering.

Before cars
and planes
and trains,
Before carriages
and carts
and wheels
Irish moms and dads would never have imagined
their homes
as other than our future home,
as other than great-great grandkids home
as it was on into a distant WiseElder
health-rooting past projecting future health.

Diaspora dreams
would have been just for tribal survival reasons,
I suppose.
Which sounds eerily like how I feel
about my kids WiseElder future prospects
challenged by angry supremacist voices,
classically un-evangelical,
philosophically dividing sinful ego-natures
from virtuous eco-spirits…

Yet these are what God originally created together…
Well, I get sidetracked
when I gaze into this awesome abyss
of LeftBrain’s curious diaspora nature
returning to RightBrain spiritual sanctuary
of what paradise Earth could become
after Her diaspora integrity returns.

Where our children can EarthTribe thrive again
by cooperative work and play with our conservative challenges
mental and physical
theological and ecological
spiritual and natural
secular and sacred
liberal healthy while conserving wealth
of deep learning democracy
for challenged diaspora solidarity.

I think about leaving the U.S.
especially in the last couple weeks,
and the last couple years,
now that I think of empty hearts and diamonds adulation
while never once mentioning darker promises
of clubs
and non-elite spades for burying our drowned
and burned
and shot.

This feels less and less like a healthy
safe
cooperative democracy for my wounded diaspora kids
to learn how to play WinWin games
rather than WinLose patriarchal lies
against the cultural wealth potential of equality
for matriarchal
WiseElder
ecofeminist
healthy RightBrain curious climates…

Inclusive of wounded,
voiceless,
brown-skinned children.

Precisely.
Me Too,
my Irish diaspora friend
sadly added,
thinking about her own adult children
increasingly uncomfortable about their distance
dissonance
and lack of hope in co-investment,
fading faith in loyalty to EarthTribe’s diaspora
cooperatively engaging our co-migrating selves.

But my own dad’s
and mom’s journey
began in the MidWest,
and their mom and dads came from Europe,
and their moms and dads
came from migrant EarthTribes
before carriages
and carts
and diaspora enabling wheels.

Where could we go
that could guarantee safe and healthy water,
regenerate soil,
fresh and liberally democratic conserving sanctuary,
bicamerally resonant consciousness,
robust ecological with theological WinWin culture,
cooperative egalitarian intent and design,
restorative justice,
peace for planet,
plants,
and people?

I assume that’s a rhetorical diaspora question.

She invited me to a potluck dinner
in her non-Irish home.

I continued my journey
into our migrant gathering sanctuary,
wondering about souls and wonder and imagination
before curious carriages
and courageous carts
and even simple wheels,
when horses and trees were our whispering neighbors
and prophets predicting healthy grass and water
satisfying next seven regenerations
of challenged children
hoping for their healthy chances
to become tomorrow’s WiseElder sanctuaries.

What Health-Searching Voters Want

Financial supporters,
including tax payers,
prefer to invest most in thriving healthy results,
mental,
physical,
spiritual,
natural,

Health interdependent
and wealth autonomously held,

Responsive
and yet rationally authoritative,

Personally felt
and yet publicly well researched,

Spiritually passionate
and yet naturally logical,

RightBrain spontaneous
and yet LeftBrain properly processed,

Orthodox familiar family
and yet undomesticated wildly green-red re-constitutive
transubstantiating
creolizing
blending healthier multicultural
Ego-loving
and yet deep eco-learning

Our ZeroZone Health-Target Population,
includes those chronically experiencing pathological climate outcomes
mental,
physical,
spiritual,
natural disabilities
disassociations internally interdependent
and yet externally Left-autonomous

Either/Or egos with Both/And ecohabitat health hopes
Naturally organic
and yet spiritually inorganic

Responsive weather-whisperers
and yet responsible
well-researched climate forecasters,

Spontaneously compassionate
and yet cooperatively reasoned,

Ecstatic
and yet slow-growing mutual enchantment,

Family familiar experience
and yet humanely committed to global democratic energy
co-investment,

Loving ultra-violet integrity
and yet deep learned red-heart synergetic,

Ego strength
and yet EcoTherapeutic fluent flow,

GreenEmbodied resiliently articulating logos
and yet long resonant RedHearted mythos.

When logos/mythos host a green/red stakeholder’s meeting,
we invite today’s ZeroZone chronically hurting
secular/sacred wounded
disabled
pathologized victims,
criminals,
terminally silenced by chronic non-elite Left-Right disassociative
disabilities
to gather around WiseElder outdoor/inside fire-circles

To pass the pipe of logos responsibilities
and baton of mythic authority to speak
about passion for healthier climates
inside and outside,

Ego and eco
therapeutic restoring re-foresting schools,
towns,
nations,
continents,
Earth.

Listen
to what we most love to say
sing
dance
And what They,
perhaps unlike ourselves today,
do not say
cannot yet sing
would perhaps never choose to associatively dance
even if their cooperative legs
were still both logically responsive
and responsibly authoritative,
kneeling to show secular with sacred respect
for our patriotic-matriotic Earth,
shared green with red home
East with West,
South with North.

Only include all four-season reasoning Allies
in our FirstNative Tier UltraViolet Zone,
inviting all ZeroTarget unbalanced
wounded
disassociated eco-voices
as our first chronic gathering
to unanimously vote for better outside healthy choices
cooperatively owning inside wealth reform
for improving healthier lives,
housing,
gardens and farms,
energy and transportation,
communication and
cooperative ownership land
synergetic management
for All

Especially those most currently wounded
among our Zero Target
integral
ego-eco GoldenRule
inhabitants
and yet co-habitating voters,
investors in wealth of healthy
green liberating climates
with red conserving cooperative
DNA-design and ecological
theological co-management.
