Note:

See also “Spiral Dynamics: mastering values, leadership, and change” by Don Edward Beck and Christopher C. Cowan, kinda like ghost transliterators for the bicameral systemic healthy redevelopment thinking of Clare Graves, restructuring Earth-Contextual Intelligence as spiral ing dynamic fractal/octave/bilateral/trilateral polymetric multiculturally revolutionary DNA-iconic structure for cooperative planning, compassionate communication, designing polyculturally healthy EarthRegenerative outcomes. 

There is also a helpful synopsis in wikipedia.com, if you search “Spiral Dynamics.” My own work with this creolizes (attempts to co-acclimate, in a Gregory Bateson cooperative define/refine kind of way) Spiral Dynamics with Integral Permaculture Design principles of compassionate EarthCentric planning for healthy redevelopment of radically democratic, non-anthropocentric cooperatively-invested, resonant and resilient design.  Which, indeed, does sound very much like either a Clare Graves sentence, and/or a Bucky Fuller paragraph page-long sentence.  Which is probably why I tend to write prose in poetically licensed horizontally blocked disguise, in some form of left/right internal communicating, guiding guise.

UnRepentant Self Idolaters

“The simplicity
of total trust
is one of the most powerful forces
in the world.”
Sogyal Rinpoche

The Rinpoche’s faith
in radically democratic trust,
feels too wildly green-inclusive madness
to address the therapeutic mediator’s,
and/or non-violent communication mentor’s,
and/or EarthCentered restorative justice student’s
non-elite, grassroots-biased dilemma:

“Oops, this unrepentant predator,
too patriarchally
and capitalistically ego-centered,
is both dissociatively wrong
and illicitly
and immorally
pathologically winning
privileged yet again.”

A similar faith statement
to the Rinpoche’s
feels closer to a median mediator’s mark:

The integrity
of fully informed
and resilient democracy
is one of Earth’s deepest empowering functions
found in cooperatively win/win compliant WorldViews
spiritually
and naturally,
co-arising political
co-invested economic
ego/eco-systemic responsibility.

To recognize, re-cognize,
re-generate
re-create
my informed healthy best interest
cannot diminish your most robust,
nor future generations’ most resilient,
self/other GoldenRule interests,
while still multiculturally meeting democratic cooperative standards
of strong/flowing resonance

For cooperatively informed civil
civic
personal
political
economic
psychological
sociological
multicultural trust intelligence
without neglecting
left-hemisphere ego-centering compassion,
co-passion,
ego/ecosystemic bilaterally contextual passion

As cooperative citizens of empowering States
and Municipalities
and EarthCentric Incorporations,
and WorldView Ego-Eco Recentering Mediators
Mentors
Therapeutic Mensches
CoMessiahs for Earth Peace/Paradise
Bodhisattvas for Inside/Outside
Spiritual/Natural Voices

Deeply heard and appreciated
as integral residents with integrity
enlightening Earth LifeSystems
and compassionately communicating,
listening for and speaking of,
democratically healthy trust communities,

Where multiculturing diversity
is appreciated
and win/win strategic compliance
with ego/eco-systemic bilateral flexibility,
creolizing flow,
transubstantiating functional standards
for cooperative democratic stewardship
promotes further GoldenRule revolutions,

GoldenStrength Ratios,
GoldenElixir Win/Win TrustFlow
essential for empowering
and enlightening health/wealth trust:

“Oops,
not so much co-gravitating
entropically fatigued
unhealthy bipolar
reactive win/lose competitions,
patriarchal
capitalistic
theocratic
corporate business as usual distrust.”

Yet rather more
left/right-winged bicameral democracy,
co-arising dipolar trust,
faith, if you please,
in active

ego/eco-systemic
dipolar

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.

Earth feels undone.

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

A Healthier Patriotism

My own patriotic U.S. extended family,
historically,
and currently
remains StraightWhiteMale privileged
in our collective memories,
if not imaginations,
of spiritual communion
with all the more privileged saints
present,
past,
and future

But, we have also suffered
from rather too much faith in capitalism,
which, like democracy,
is frequently faulted as miserable,
but also lauded as better
than all the socialistic
communistic
devilistic
totalitarian
fascist
foreign
threatening
terrifying
anger-inducing alternatives.

Capitalism of our encultured
multigenerational minds
with left-hemisphere dominant brains
favoring natural secularized competitions
between saints and sinners
of diversely threatening monocultural privilege,
persuasions fundamentally supremacist
for democracy in theory
so long as not in perceived conflict
with self-serving capitalism in daily personal practice,
natural and spiritual,
secular and sacred,
ecological and theological.

We are egocentric
sometimes narcissistic
always bootstrap individualistic
evangelical redemption ecopoliticals
but focused on BadNews
of our need to invest in violent self-defense
against Marxist communism out there
in Hell

Not to be confused with commitment to GoodNews
of sacred divine communion
within our privileged StraightWhiteMale places
of apartheid worship
in awe and wonder
dogmatically committed to our StraightWhiteMale God

Made military-industrialized
in our best capitalistic,
not really quite so democratic paternalistic
image of left-hemisphere
StraightWhiteMale rightfully empowered
historical/cultural dominance.

So, there we have it,
this chaotic bilateral dissonance
between our powers of political democratic enlightenment
through whole open-systemic dialogue,
and our confusion about economic uncooperative self-empowerment
at the necessary (either/or thinking) cost of Other disempowerment,
gone sadly win/lose awry
through endless polarizing debate assumptions

That if someone wins,
then all others playing our eco-political game
must lose,
which sounds very much like
survival of the fittest
rightest
left-brain dominant species
OVER AGAINST
Earth’s whole open system
green/blue
ecological/theological success.

Like our dominant left-hemisphere academic theory
of secularized win/lose evolution
is more anthropocentrically capital-headed
and self-righteously defensively effective
than Earth’s sacred WINblue/WINgreen
ego/eco-politics
of polypathic political dialogue
empowering through GoldenRule democratic resilience,

And right hemisphere
polyphonic economic enlightenment
co-invested through Golden Octave Ratios
in interdependent multicultural dialogue,

Holonic nonzero sum,
polynomially left GroupTheory
and polyvagally bicameral right/left Win/Win GameExperience

My extended global
multicultural family
history and future
with more resonant
healthier cooperative democracy
embedded in Earth’s ecosystemic wealth,

Co-invested across multi-generations
of MotherEarth’s wise-dialogue
win/win eco-political
eco-feminist regenerators

Not of colonizing political
and anthropocentric economic privilege
but of democratically co-invested integrity
in sacred green/blue communion.

Bodhichitta Joy

Bodhichitta:

Is a supremely multicultural
golden elixir
overcoming sovereignty of death,
fear of mortality,
anger against loss
and suffering
and dispassionate inhumanity.

Is an inexhaustible
infinite
poly-rational treasure
eliminating,
absorbing,
healing poverty
in
and on
and over Earth’s orbiting
revolving
spiraling seasonal path.

Is supreme medicine
that quells
dispels Earth’s disease,
monoculturing unease,
swells polyculturing ease,
communion,
multiculturally intelligent communication.

Is a tree sheltering all living creatures
wandering
wondering
tired
retired
retreading this cooperatively-held path
of conditioned
reconditioned,
autonomously
interdependent,
mortal existence
immortal consciousness.

Is a universal bridge,
nutritional language,
healthy wealth
leading to liberal liberating liberty
from unhappy,
stingy,
conserving,
hoarding states of defensive birth
and child uncare.

Is a dawning moon of mindbodies
dispelling
respelling tumorous torment
of disturbing conceptions,
perturbing new moon misconceptions,
burbling cognitive dissociative dissonance,
gurgling bicameral full moon resonance.

Is a great sun
ultimately removing misty ignorance
of MotherEarth icons,
EarthMother original sources
resourcing our ecofeminist healthy home
in joy.

LeftBrain Avatar

LeftBrain thinking,
not an avatar
of compassionately feeling
emergent healing systems,

Chilly baptismal waters
of equanimity
do not typically suggest a warm bath
in multicultural
and global
democracy.

Is it possible,
reasonable,
healthy,
therapeutic
to carry gifts of resonant love
and extend them to those
evoking a long history
of patriarchal anger
and “vengeance is capital-invested mine”
disempowering fear?

How would this,
could this,
“should” this,
might this be different,
better
than fueling codependent anxiety
without realistically anticipated reform,
curiosity with transcending cooperative courage,
win/win communication out
without
win/lose return
back in,
external faithfulness without active internal hope?

Is it possible,
and even responsible,
more or less therapeutic,
to deeply burn with anger against Trumpism,
the blind excesses of narcissistic fascism
somewhat democratically turned over to empower a fool
by a near majority of lose-ego/lose-eco ignorant voters,
inexperienced with sufficient cooperative bicameral ecopolitics
to discern enlightening differences
between democratic love
and autocratic fear
of losing face,
noble retributive reputation,
emotionally satisfying financial success
far beyond simple ecosystemic life sufficiency?

Who might we become
if compassionate patriotism
were so democratically inclusive
our object of win/win regenerate love
could settle for no less object
than sacred green/blue
yellow/red
purple/orange,
and black/white at night
polypathic
polyphonic
polynomial equals not not polynomial
democratic
sacred-secular equanimity
of rightmind equals left-embodied EarthJustice,

To be faithful
to nothing less than full EarthTribe compassion
within empowering
as without democratically enlightening.

For me,
if I can expand my sense of loyalty,
commitment,
appreciation,
love for Donald Trump,
at least as much as I fear
all the leftbrain reasons to to be angry with him,
angry about what he deliberately fosters,
angry about what has led him away from democratic We,
to the very threshold of self-righteous
inhumane fascism,
climate terrorism,
that he iconically represents,

Then I can expand into a larger picture
mirroring the loving kindness
deep learning Source
and ReSource
for all that brings us to this moment
in globally polarized Time
to find our unwinding way back
back
back

To all-embracing love
for Original enlightening
empowering
democratic
multiculturing
co-passioning SummativeSource

Of BlackHole degenerative
yet integral lives matter
splatter spacetime dances
flirting with joyful rhythms
in becoming undivided
once and twice
and thrice again

Within 4D spiraling revolutionary frames
of sacred grace,
compassion,
beauty,
serene foregiveness
for lack of history’s win/win
sin
of leftbrain win/lose thinking

Stinking
slinking lack of rightbrain win/win

Attachments and Aversions

I wonder if
what Buddhist classic meditation teachings
refer to as “attachments”
and “aversions,”
a Western medical doctor
might label with different words,
such as addiction
and dissociative diversions.

In both frames
negative illusions may be recognized
and appreciated
as deep opportunities to learn;

Negative delusions are not accurately cognized
and are depreciated
as too risky
not to repress
and hide
from any therapeutic
transporting
transparent (not self-shaming)
and vulnerable (not self-blaming)
communication
with our contemplative EgoTherapist within
and our medical-model EcoTherapists without.

Positive illusions,
attachments and/or addictions,
may be accurately cognized
as sensory attractions,

Whether smells and/or tastes,
touch and/or feelings,
sight and/or sound,
eco-reception and/or mind/body communication,
exterior and/or interior,

May have potential
to therapeutically transport
away from addiction
and toward less ego-obsessive attraction,
and away from self-serving,
potentially predative, attractions
to positive sensory pleasure,
cooperatively intended
hoped
faithed
loved,
eco-politically
and personally
and bilaterally
and bicamerally healthy wealth
of becoming completely satisfied
sufficient
simple
centered in HereLeftYangSpace/NowRightYinternalTime
and in past sensory satisfying memories
and in future images
imagination of pleasures
climatically encompassing
all of the above.

Addiction to cooperative multicultural
multigenerational
regenerational
and bicameral
bilateral peak sensory experiences
could be a healthier opportunity
than addictions to competitive ego-monoculturing
and mono-atheistic
and autonomous predator/prey
sensory risk ambivalence

Where things don’t necessarily smell
or taste inviting,
don’t necessarily feel grateful to touch
or feel inside my mindbody,
don’t necessarily transcendently transport
when compromised win/lose beauty seen
and ambiguously uninviting truth heard,
falling short of healthy co-addiction
to Earth’s vast multicolored wealth
of sensory ultra-nonviolent
compassionate
EarthTribe Yintegrity.

From What I Hear Here

What you hear
may depend on where you sit
to listen.

What our left hemispheres hear
as cross-pollinating,

occasionally manic strings
of inbred analogy,

Between physical and metaphysical
between secular and sacred
between ecological power
and theological light

Our right hemispheres
see and feel
as polypathic

polyvagal

Polynomial entertaining truths
for symmetrical beauty,

Healthiest stable wealth
