Contract Against Greatness

In Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”
she paints a nationalistically wealthy saint
where also lives a monochromatically utilitarian narcissist,
sucking on attachment to fame and power
for bought and sold ZeroSum accounting Souls.

If the perfectly powerful pure patriarchal patriot
were your own Atlas father,
you might feel certain
he would prefer you grow to be Trumpian
and probably not a peace activist
vegetarian;
certainly not half-naked Gandhi.

Donald Trump
is the formerly cooperative democratic Enlightenment-inspired,
white privileged
monoculturing logical conclusion
to a now almost fully win/lose left-hemisphere autocratic disenchantment
predicting our PostIndustrial Totalitarian Revolution
and Anti-Christian
Anti-Islamic
Anti-Spiritual Experience
dogmatic left-commodified hemispheric Rapture;
not to be confused with Rabbi Heschel’s left with right integral
spatial wonder regenerating timeless awe.

Donald Trump
as the shrugging Atlas UnPresident
of boring old-fashioned cooperative win/win spiritual hopes
and global fake-fundamental ego
non-conservational
win/lose ecopolitical
monocultural aspirations,
And yet also,
a shadow perhaps,
of ecological/theological respirations,
still silent speaking against his predator rights of wealthy nations
in his “Art [and Reductive Science] of the Deal.”

Nowhere, in his Chapter Two,
“Trump Cards: The Elements of the Deal”
will we find any value for win/win ego/ecological cooperative evolution;
Like the evolution you and I have
every left-hemisphere dominant day
and right-hemisphere prominent win/win night.

While climate restoring Schumacher activists
advocate Think Small,
Trump begins with “Think Big”
and autonomously take out win/lose contracts
against a more civil win/win empowering multicultural society
with explicit constitutional commitments
to natural/spiritual Enlightening nondualistic prosperity,
well-being
global,
and national,
and communal,
and familial,
and personal health/wealth care.

“Protect the Downside
and the Upside
Will Take Care of It[My]self.”
In this second Trump principle of the Big Deal
we see more the science and math of his egocentric,
monoculture supremacist,
anthropocentric terrorism;
His prejudice against God’s weak and vulnerable migrants
outside U.S. borders,
and illegal immigrants inside U.S. borders.

Here, in TrumpLand of win/lose zero-sum dealmaking,
healthy diversity is anti-natural
and ‘bad boy’ bullying sacred law and order
assumed to be an appropriate response
to a pernicious communioned interdependent threat
to wealthy monoculturing uniformity–
never mind about polypathic right/left integrity.

The entire global biodiversity of regenerative species
gloriously together sing out, and in,
restorative win/win peaceful creolizing anthems,
to the contrary-reversion principle
yang/yin
win/win polyphonic re-integrity.

“Maximize your [EgoCentric] Options”
by never getting too attached to winning just one deal;
Yet do remain ego-invested in autonomously winning all deals,
all places and spaces,
all the time
reinvesting in left-hemisphere dominance
as if a fully universal map
for an unbalancing ego-uncentric territory.

“Know Your Market”
instinctively overpowering
and repressing right-hemispheres
preferring win/win co-investment
in the healthier contagion of compassion,
peace,
possibly even democratically-held joy.

“Use Your [Either Win or Lose] Leverage”
rather than return to compassionately empower
our healthiest democratic win/win co-leverage,
capital co-invested leverage,
cooperative employee-ownership leverage.

Notice that “Use Your [access to capital wealth] Leverage”
sounds quite different than Principle 11
in David Holmgren’s
“Permaculture Principles
and [Poly]Pathways Beyond Sustainability”
where cooperative permaculture designers
actively caution each other
not to assume you
and/or a nation-state
are on the right health track
just because it is an overly wealthy
beaten-down pathway to anthropocentrism
and narcissistic xenophobia,
“Use Edges
and Value the Marginal.”

And so this Trump v sacred cooperative economics
culture-war continues,
polyculture v monoculture,
yanging our way toward climate apocalypse
rather than a 2020 healing win/win yin/yang revolution.

Trump advocates
“Enhance Your Location”
autonomously owned for personal yang profit.
Holmgren invites us to
“Obtain a [cooperative win/win yin] Yield”
sufficient for ego and eco-empowering resilience.

Trump, Get the [EgoCentric-AnthroCentric] Word Out”
so philanthropic Atlas,
bearing the messianic suffering of Earth,
now degenerates into self-glorifying President Narcissus.
Holmgren, “Apply Self-Regulation and Accept Feedback.”

Trump, “Fight Back.”
Holmgren, “Integrate Rather than Segregate.”

Trump, “Deliver the Goods,” as fast as possible.
Holmgren, “Use and Value Renewable Resources
and Services,”
cooperatively managed by left-hemisphere’s natural secularity
and right-hemisphere’s sacred integrity,
economic ecology.

Trump, “Contain the [personal checking account] Costs.”
Holmgren, “Catch and [public regeneratively] Store Energy,
nutrition,
non-violent communication,
wealthy health care of planet,
people,
plants.

Trump, “Have Fun” making more wealth-acquiring
colonizing
win/lose deals.
At whose expense?
Holmgren, “Produce No Waste,”
which sounds a bit left-hemisphere Victorian
and purist,
maybe even ideological,
to a Trumpian,

But, is originally intended
to return a cooperative messiah leadership profit
to reconsider not not ZeroSum geometrics
may also become biometric
polypathic-polyphonic
Zero ZenSouls
of Yang/Yin
Left/Right timeless
health/wealth Tao,
both universal and unitarian,

Which seems like a better place to end
than the Conservative Science
of Making the Trumpian ShortTerm
Win/Lose
lowest commodified denominator
Deal.

Cultures,
including business cultures,
and democratic public sector cultures,
are either multiculturally healthy
or monoculturally pathological,
or somewhere in-between
integrity and audacious mendacity.

Mother Spider Webbing Days

Co-empathic passions
like hearts with flowers,
mothers with soft sunny spring shower days,

Develop interdependent webs
of both/and intimacy,
like bodies with loving minds
wrapped around loving partners
and cooperative vocational co-owners,

Regenerating love life
lived win/win optimally well,
like an organic ecofeminist farmer
dancing nutritional poetry in fertile field
re-membering heirloom beauties,
present cooperatively developing family,
present within seeds of future generations
and past polypathic nutrient nurturers,
enculturers of win/win multi-regenerational health.

Upon our ego deathbeds,
this great terminal either/or culminating identity event,
this both/and co-passioning quality opportunity
of left-mind’s secularly embodied health
and right-mind’s sacred wealth
reconnect with passionate interdependent Others
resiliently mattering most
both/and resonantly intelligent
within Earth’s continuously emerging
win/win
health/wealth multiculturing opportunities,

Co-passions inviting imperatives
of flex-stretching both/and attachment
live better lives,
healthier inclusive loves.

Yet
capitalism and patriarchalism
learned by left-brain dominance
where balancing right-brain ecofeminist prominence
could better drive our co-passioning polypathic train
of historic healthing events,

In which win/lose capitalism
invites us to over-invest in ZeroSum competitions
for disempowering Other’s co-passions,
rather than inviting reinvestment
in emotive connection,
ZeroSoul timeless inter-relationship

Despite epic nutritional growing years
of oxytocin both/and evolution
to relentlessly nature/spirit quest
yin-belonging
integral intimate organic connection webs,

While Yang too-autonomous monoculturing supremacy
resists redefining wealthy people
as those healthy enough
to not need either/or left-dominant
ZeroSum ego-identified
anthropocentric predation over Others,

Building a dispassionate monoculture of either/or cognitive fundamentalism
is at radically compassionate both/and odds
with any interdependent organic multiculturing body/mind
secular-biological/sacred-ecological interdependent
EarthMothered identity.

Liberal LeftWing Flight

It has been said
Charles Darwin was not happy
with leftbrain’s Survival of the Fittest
without rightbrain’s ecosystemic health roots
in Thrival of the Fittin-ingest,

Which Bateson,
and other systemic ecologists,
would later call interdependent co-acclimation,
and Jane Gordon politically theorizes
rare histories of win/win creolization
with much healthier outcomes
and wealthier too,
than leftbrain’s fascination
with wealth-acquiring colonization.

Foolish leftbrain dominance,
so unaware history has regeneratively concluded
there is no lasting resilient wealth
without ecosystemic EarthClimate health.

Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations
produced similar unease
about evolutionary theories
denying the primally obvious
Health of Interdependent NationStates
through robust natural/spiritual Earth consciousness,
co-passioning double-binding nonduality,
like bipolar either Yang or Yin of reductive ZeroSum reasoning
and dipolar both Yang with Yin of inductive ZeroSoul co-nurturing.

While Adam Smith’s leftbrain wrote,
“The necessity of civil government grows up
with the acquisition of valuable property…
till there be property there can be no government,
the very end of which is to secure wealth,
and to defend the rich
from the poor.”

His more interdependently ecosystemic rightbrain
was feeling,
“The opportunities of civilizing governance grows up and out
with the acquisition of healthy interdependent properties
of communal co-acclimation…
till there be cooperatively integral properties
there can be no ego/ecosystemically thriving co-governance,
the very beginning through end of which is to secure health,
and to defend the poor
from the kleptocratic colonizations
of the too leftbrain dominant rich.”

Where “capitalism permits wealth
to purchase,
own,
and profit from natural resources,”
notes Kenneth Cloke’s ecosystemic analysis,

There also,
integralism, integrity,
invites health to invest in,
to cooperatively own wealth,
and resiliently benefit with nondual natural/spiritual resources,

Not only LeftBrain “exhausting the land on which our food is produced,”
but also RightBrain feeding our soil-souls
from which our sensory nutritional awareness is rooted
and wombed;

Not only “poisoning the water we drink
and polluting the air we breathe,”
But also healing the living waters we consume
and collaboratively purifying the air trees breathe
and bicameral lungs digest
ingest
outgesture;

Not merely “the sale and consumption of fossil fuels,
irrevocably heating our planet,
altering our weather,
raising sea levels,
extinguishing countless species
and threatening the survival of millions,
if not all species”…

But also re-investment in natural/spiritual
left/right systems
interdependently cooling our robust planet,
re-acclimating our weather,
re-lowering sea levels,
cooperatively planting and nurturing countless species
and fostering the thrival of ecosystemically resilient millions,
if not all left/right
yang/yin balancing
anthro/eco-systemic life
on secular/sacred
deductive/inductive
unfolding explicate/refolding implicately co-arising
win/win binomial ZeroSoul compassion with Earth.

Where leftbrain’s either + or (-,-)1
is also rightbrain’s resolution
both + and (-,-)0-Soul,
like positive psychology polynomials
equivalently health/wealth valued
as not-not polynomial
neurologically interdependent polypathic web systems,
inviting both wealthy rightbrain polyphonic co-passion
and further leftbrain healthy curiosity.

Note: This piece is heavily indebted to the dialogue and conflict resolution work, growing more robust resilient democracy systems, as found in Kenneth Cloke’s “Politics, Dialogue and the Evolution of Democracy.” concerned with how to win/win discuss race, abortion, immigration, gun control, climate change, same sex marriage, and other Hot Topics.

To Our NRAss-ociation

To the No Relationship Association,

I suppose we will never find
a healthy way to prove
Lovelock’s Gaian Hypothesis
we have nothing left to lose
by cooperating more Win/Win
and competing less Lose/Lose.

No more or less than we could prove
our sun will reappear
to rise this next tomorrow
any more or less synergetically
than fundamental fragmentationally
apart.

Still, if not true
that love cooperatively empowers
more than hate competitively disempowers,
then how would we understand life becomes
more powerful than non-life’s static being?

If non-life artifacts of becoming
rocks in streams
of living water
shaped of star dust
and gaseous non-relationships
instead of nothing,

How could no thing
emerge from no ballistic space?

And why would no space for belonging
submerge this flow
of universal ergodic time
yang-health forward
restoring yin-wealth
of listening in non-violent
co-passionate DNA communion,
historic past?

Still,
I see your pointed rifle.
I suppose we will never find
a healthy way to wealthy prove
and disprove
unprove
reprove
pre-approve
Lovelock’s Gaian Synergetic Hypothesis
we have no right integrity
left to lose.

First SunRise Service

My first great faith journey
involved exiting EarthMother’s nighttime womb,
without even a first language
except what RightBrain inherited
from noticing emotive taste and feel
and healthy/pathological touch
memories prehistorically Win/Win
and Win/Lose
and Lose/Lose souled
unsoiled either happy or mad,
learning both/and health-resilient midways.

From such humble nutritional/toxic expectations,
and win/lose annunciations
of EarthTribe’s integral potential,
wealthy yang opportunities and yin-unhealthy risks,
through adolescent win/lose romantic invested engagements

On through my own forty-year corporate adult commodified faith journey
ensuing
pursuing my great white-male privileged American dream;

A win/lose business-as-usual pilgrimage
toward my more recent retiring win/win destiny,
for healthy wise-elder now
unhealthy other-wise then

Not really a chosen win/win destination
freely destined to and as begun
with integrity of ego-me inside sacred eco-Other
co-passion for positive
healthy
rational/nutritional purpose

And perennial meaning
this old pre-cortical WiseElder right brain
we have anciently learned interdependence
does not believe in autonomous ego-mortality,

Right brain emotive intelligence
is not overly invested in left brain ego’s embedded fragmentation
co-arising feelings of righteous predative anger
and leftist prayers conserving lose/lose fears
of YangGod’s universally autonomous climate genocide.

Ego’s de-individuation
away from Earth’s healthy habitat
rejoining MotherEarth’s timeless individulting wombs
reproducing integrity’s conjoined co-passioning potential,

ReBecoming as I began
win/win re-entering memories re- and pre-historically souled
unsoiled
inside EarthMother’s first pre-cortical dark night

Becoming bicameral felt
effectively co-caused/effective
neo-cortical ego’s individuating day

ReComposing my first great healthy transformational
co-arising in/ex-formational
re-journey
re-membering my first great transitional
sunrise developmental
co-passioning light/energy service
courageously multicultural
vulnerably global
and transparently personal.

Advent of Lent

All that waits within me
unfulfilled
Awaits within you

Together
appreciating what we could become
like advent
awaiting a great transformational revolution
restoring peace through inside
outside co-arising justice

But also like lent
preparing for Bad Friday,
a revolution of deadly terror
destroying ego’s last fragments
of unchanging stasis inside
outside co-arising climates
individuating identity

In all that longs lonely within you
unfulfilled
Awaits within me
on back to original regenerators
waiting
changing
waiting
breathing in
changing directions
breathing out
waiting
breathing in belonging
once again together

When all Earth’s voices wait within us
unfulfilled
I feel wrong to break my silence

When beauty invites solidarity,
commands more than limp tolerance
of nature’s diversity,
regenerates celebration of integrity
felt
breathed
beat
surfed
sung
beatified.
