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.

Healthy Empowering Economics

I was a Taoist
philosophically and spiritually
metaphysically and physically
long before my Public Administration classes.

Which may be poignantly of interest
because the original Taoist teacher,
LaoTse,
taught sensory experiences
of Yang-testosterone energy
and Yin-estrogen synergy
for a bicameral governing audience
with questions about how to empower egocenters red/yellow
and ecosystems blue/green
equitably,
as democratically healthy as possible,
while avoiding libertine chaos.

One of the most useful,
and curious, DeepLearnings
that emerged in these Public Health Governance classes
with Public Wealth Management professors
is the yang/yin interplay
between capitalist economics,
with a profound Western monopoly on defining “value,”
AND democratic politics
of self and Other,
Me and We,
empowerment objectives.

When RightWing economic conservatives
look at the Constitution,
They see YangPatriarchal scripture
demanding sacred fealty,
defining orthodox hierarchical structures
to achieve “stay in the nationalistic competitive Black”
and bottom-line financial balance
between outgoing investments
and incoming returns
in experienced social
cultural
historically accumulating
nationalistic GNP value,
and don’t worry so much
about Earth’s capacity to repair
gross nationalistic consumption;

As if democratic virtue
is a free market bankable investment
for the personal governing pleasure
of those most successful
at capitalism’s win/lose game
of empowering/disempowering patriarchal
monotheistic straight-white values.

On the other hand,
LeftWing political liberals
step into embodied
full-sensory mindbody circles
to listen for Yin-ecofeminist
historical/cultural wisdom

Refining multicultural revolving spirals
of democratic power to cooperatively achieve
“you don’t always have to color within dogmatic lines”
in basic black
or business grey
or maybe brown
or navy blue conservatism,
and also notice top-line integral balance
between outgoing economic empowerment
and incoming democratic returns
in co-empathic
globally multiculturing
historically inter-weaving
EarthTribe deep cooperative listening skills

As if democratic health
is a revolutionary blue/green/yellow/red/purple/orange
multi-regenerational co-investment language
for interpersonal pleasure governing
those most successful
with capitalizing on Yang’s testosteroned win/win strengths
for deep learning
enlightening Yintegral ecofeminist
ecopolitically encircling
revolving
repurposing
reweaving
regenerative values.

Bankable cooperative re-investments
for ecosystemic present
and future Turquoise/Ultra-NonViolent regenerations
of self/Other governing
multiculturally intelligent
communicators.

Intimate CoMessiahs

Sexually powerful energy,
longing for healthy
deeply resonant experience
of regenerative compassion,
both natural and spiritual,
metaphysically leftbrain
but yet embodied rightbrain,
reconnecting bicamerally sensory consciousness,

When combined
with disciplined
adult, and yet not fully mature,
religious passion for multiculturing fulfillment,
yet still grasping toward short-term ego-privileged
ultimate climax,
sensational satiating experience

Is a highly volatile mixture.
Dangerous ground.
Deeply treacherous.
Filled with yellow and red striped
CAUTION signs,

Icons of rich potential blessing
through resonant
non-violent
vulnerably transparent
communicating co-passionates,

Which is not equivalent to,
nor the probable outcome of,
not sharing with today’s
and tonight’s multi-sensory receiving audience
of the typically one-on-one intimate moment
what you have persuaded yourself
the engorged
engaged Other needs
and wants to hear
then see,
to touch
then feel,
to taste
then smell
to fully invest
in being naked
with you.

Great sexual partnering
does not begin
with good marketing communication skills,
talk without integral action

But, great sexual experiences
do begin and end
with resonantly
richly
robustly balanced
compassionate listening,
feeling,
smelling skills
explicitly communicating
your shared/unshared values
for long-term co-empathic sensory experience
through sensual communication

Including sexually committed
cooperatively co-empathic
naturally spiritual
long-resilient active compassions
in solidarity with all EarthTribes
in compelling felt, heard, fragrant climates
of unsettling ecstatic copulation

As soon as our unsexy wars
and aggressions end in timeless peace
overcoming both internal theological
nature v spirit ambivalence,
and external ecological
secular v sacred indifference.

Sexual integrity
is not a mainstream path
toward bodhisattva
and messianic compassion,
much less completion.

It is not a shortcut,
although long-term ecstatic belonging
with Earth and all Her sexy Tribes
may be an outcome of mature
ecofeminist compassion.

Whether true or not
I remain cautiously aware
I am not yet mature enough
to curiously
and courageously
know,
explore,
systemically and resonantly design,
compassionately and multi-sensually
polypathically and polyphonically
ecologically and theologically redevelop.

Turquoise Pond

Earth’s turquoise pond faces,
green life
blue reflecting

Re-membering under each calm surface
re-ligioning disparate
dispolarizing themes
of Spiral EcoPolitical Dynamics,

Surrounding forest factors,
time flowing forward
and re-connecting backward,
spirited and well-natured space,
health-reconditioning place,
win/win ego/ecosystemic democratic
developing pace

Awakens EarthHumane empowering systems
within curious individuals
living amid courageous global multicultures

Designed to win/win strategize with,
and co-acclimate to,
co-articulating BlueHealth/GreenWealth
calm-faced repositions.

Some individuals may be born
deviantly blue/green
in and out
through timeless spiraling time

Calm,
apparently placid,
yet full
ripe mindbodies

Win/win reset for a 20/20 turquoise millennium
just beyond green/yellow current depolarizing horizons
of most non-red Others
human and not not quite extinct
instincts of non-violent thoughts
with eco-feeling climates.

In this best of health/wealth EarthTime,
positive psychopolitical feminists
are revered as non-violent bodhisattvas
and matriarchal messiahs,
pathfinders,
20/20 peace-revolutionary visionaries.

In other bubbling
troubling
autocratic red-dominant times,
Turquoise ecofeminists are imprisoned,
burned-at-the-stake,
banished,
twitter-bullied,
enslaved,
raped,
pimped out,
polluted,
diluted,
seduced,
reduced

Reproduced
for a healthier
calming wealthier
pond-faced place
in Turquoise Timeless Time.

Russell’s Systemic Passions

Bertrand Russell
was intrigued by systems theory,
appalled by systemic racism
within himself and others,
corporations and churches
not recognizing each other’s wisdom
also found in temples and synagogues
and community investment banks
and poor houses.

He was also interested in political philosophy,
power of aristocrats
anticipating growing personal economics
despite offering no respite
to green/blue democratic EarthLovers.

A contemporary of Einstein’s,
who shared Russell’s political philosophy
and perhaps his interest in 4Dimensional
prime NonZero-entropic space/time
co-arising dipolar bilateral systems,

Russell writes,
“The reason physics has ceased to look for causes
is that, in fact,
there are no such things.
The law of [unilateral linear] causality
is a relic of a bygone age,
surviving, like the monarchy,
only because it is erroneously supposed
to do no [win/lose, either/or leftbrain dominant reductive] harm.”

Here, Russell’s parenthetical analogy
betrays his political philosophy
favoring natural/spiritual green co-arising systemic democracy
of We The Healthy MultiCultural People
causing and effecting
monoculturing
narcissistic aristocratic collective fantasies,
anthropocentric Naked Emperors.

Causal systemic power travels down to up,
like root systems toward flowers,
nutritionally before,
secondarily, communication flowing top to down,
like seeds embedding in Earth’s co-invested future
multiculturing fertile soil
bearing multi-regenerational anticipated win/win fruits,

Dipolar co-arising in polyphonic apposition
more normatively nurturing
than win/lose bipolar challenges of monoculturing,
too aristocratically self-delusional
short-term empowering aggressors
leftbrain straight white western male predators
on organic polycultural matriarchal fields
of nature/spirit win/win systemic energy
for which each individual ego
was EarthMother sacred
eco-politically born

For growing systemic
democratic cooperative green energy,
power,
empowerment,
enlightenment
of integrity’s systemic multiculturing potential
for climate health,
internally spiritual ego
as externally natural eco-systemic.

Creative Tensions

Anxiety pulls toward distraction
delusion
un-communication

As anticipation pulls toward absorption
in monoculturing illusions
and/or polyculturing illustrations of interdependence,
miscommunication
and/or bilateral,
or even multicultural communication,

The Earth’s rapid climate degeneration,
now rolling out faster with private transport
and industrialized meat and poultry farming,
and longer with artificial light
and factories birthing plastic products
all night,
moves into a revolutionary height
of global anxiety,
democratically felt

But aristocratically denied
by win/lose devolutionary monocultural leaders
not familiar with win/win revolutionary
polycultural outcomes
multicultural incomes
multigenerational regenerators
meta-morphic appositional (not win/lose oppositional)
dipolar (not bipolarized)
co-arising (and co-gravitating) feelers
thinkers
meditators
grassroots permaculture designers
restoring down to top
AND top to down non-violent communicating justice mediators,

All healers of toxic subclimate
and monocultural win/lose
either/or leftbrain dominant thinking,
are also, at our best,
bicameral ego/eco-systemic anticipators
of win/win global green peace

New through indigenously experienced win/win raptures,
Heaven as Earth organic gardens.

When Singers Meet

When singers meet
and singing greet
we soon begin to dance
or even take a walk
to sacred journey prance

While listening,
often lusting,
for confluence
in previously unexplored
mysterious places

Seeking resonance
fulfilling urgently resilient,
often intimate,
spaces

Times timing
for all who have sung 4/4 before
to dance among these holy
what for faces

Ringing new symphonies
of warm,
and often slightly wet,
heart strung constellations
(concerto consummations).

To the DNC

Do not waste this rhetorical and climatic moment

on redundantly telling us what we already know:

Trumpism is not healthy democracy.

Please do invest this convening

in exploratory dialogue reminding us

of what we already love:

Patriotism is about wealthy EarthHealth

of green cooperative democracy.

Communioned States of Ecstasy

Lying under the dynamic heart
of ancient theological reflection
is experience,
as is true of any resonant theology
of ecological relationships
between resonant feelings
and resilient energies;

Experience
and ecological reflection about
compassionate
spiritually-felt communion,
touch
sensations
pressures
and plunges
of win/win universal relationships.

A theological term
for this heightened
and deepened
and widened cooperative
contemplative management
and ownership
and mutual becoming together
sacred experience
is “transubstantiation”

Of exterior wine
as also interior blood shared,

Of natural bread
as also spiritual embodiment,

Of Yang health energy
as also Yin wealth
of win/win light flow
between
and among visualized
smelled
tasted
felt
shared sensory chakras,

Of exterior nature
as also interior spirit,

Of secular bipolar experience
and ecological reflection,
as also sacred dipolar transposition,
co-empathic
bilateral
both/and compassion,
and theological/ecological
spiritual/natural energy
for co-embodied healthy contemplation

Of outside being
as also inside becoming
compassionate win/win communion
sacredly together
urgently needed,
and climatically wanted
even more than co-emergently needed
seeded,
co-invested
much more than segregated apart,
antagonistically win/lose co-divested.

Transubstantiation of health care communion
empowerment politics,

Love overwhelming
economically unenlightened win/lose competitions
for more prevention of future
individualistic
anthropocentric
nationalistic pathologies.

Transubstantiation,
like communion,
the ultimate win/win
therapeutic
ego/eco-political experience;
resonant Right
resilient Left.
