Self Regard

Opportunities to rest
in unconditional self-regard
also present risks
of unmitigated narcissism.

While self-respect
is a prerequisite
for pursuing resonant win/win integrity’s
full bodied potential savor
flavor
favor

MeWe co-passion
for EgoSelf
as also part of
sacred EcoOther
co-arises global
unconditional regard
for healthy life
over harmful death
and all conscious
curious creatures
in-between Alpha
and Omega
great transitions.

Ego wealth of self/other compassion
values love
above all else,
although perhaps more could be said
for an unconditionally regarded
sense of humor,

Ego/EcoSystemic joyful
resilient compassion
remains cooperatively therapeutic
powering through competitive
narcissistic trauma histories

Of win/lose closeted
micro-aggressions
miscommunicating
what was originally intended
to express warm unconditional regard
for oneself
as part of cherished Other

Dipolar
(not bipolar)
co-arising regard
co-gravitating toward
a shared sense of healthy humor

Which is a loving fruit
of the Holy Spirit
the serious narcissist lacks
in his dominating patriarchal
capitalist
anthrosupremacist
EarthView

Of unconditional
LeftBrain prominently learned
disregard
for empowering cooperatively curious
and warm
and enlightened joyful
bipartisan co-relationships

Loving
open
transparent
vulnerable
non-judgmental
means compassionate
unconditional Me-and-We
integrally cooperative regard.

ThanksGiving CommunioNations

ThanksGiving advances

Arising thoughts about boundary breaching risks
and perennial partisan issues
and deep listening opportunities.

Perhaps only the Othering
and Othered One Percent
instilling in their children
and future grandchildren
that extended family meals
are never an appropriate time
or sacred space
to speak of desecrating politics
or sanctimonious religion
and, above else,
nothing remotely suggestive
of personal sex histories
and fantasies.

And yet,
from a deep power analysis perspective
of richly co-invested feelings,
these three,
together,
form a developmental narrative
of how spiritual empowerment,
RightHemisphere felt,
and natural enlightenment,
LeftHemisphere considered
and reconsidered
and preconsidered
and formerly unconsidered
thoughts

Develop toward co-passion,
gratitude,
resilient capacity for giving
and receiving Thanks

However agnostic
atheistic
monotheistic
polytheistic
and/or panentheistic

Our sensory sexual systems
are indigenous,
forming already
before we are born,
known,
heard
and smelled
and tasted.

Religious
or even anti-religious enculturation
speaks to our sensory-spiritual
mental
metaphysical experiences

Peaks and valleys
on a range from empowering positive feelings
and negative diesmpowering associations
with metaphysical thoughts
and physical feelings,
attitudes,
belief systems
dreams
and nightmares

Sometimes closed,
and therefore entropic,
and degenerating,
claustrophobic
and pathological

And sometimes open
and whole
and regenerating,
trusted
and healthy
and resilient.

Here
where resonant metaphors emerge
more helpful social communication boundaries
change
morph
conciliate
creolize,
embrace win/win sexual
and religious
and political strategies

Unlike win/lose work
remains politely segregated
from win/win play
at tearing down judgmental
stress and trauma boundaries

Like dark and light,
seriously competitive vocations
remain dimly dissociated
from humorously cooperative vacations
from old capitalist school
patriarchal business as bottom-line
competitions for short-term profits

While investing in
more long-term fruitful
political relationships
can also become explicitly sexual
and/or implicitly religious,
spiritual
and natural,
mental
and physical powers
of not only self-righteous internal governance
but also Other governing fair
and equitable
and integral power relationships,
cooperative win/win
and/or competitive win/lose
and/or despondent lose/lose.

After the second glass of wine,
with the kids off at their G-rated table,
and football announcers
creating white
and blue and black and brown
and hot red seething
tight shoulder and hip pad testosterone
distracting noises
and visions
and revisions
in life’s sensory underground
and background

It might be appropriate
to ask about a cherished Other’s
sexually political spiritual energy lives
as if trauma-reducing resilience
through nonviolent communication
deeply
sacredly
integrally matters

When healthy and safe communication
remains politically felt
and religiously thought
and neuro-sensory shared
becomes welcome curiosity
and invited transparency
and cherished vulnerability,
what has never been courageously discussed
may also be what empowers thankfulness
and enlightens this Gratitude Day

For rich sensory meals
and peak experiences,
for robust political laughter and joy,
and spiritual integrity
of resiliently good humor
and health-enlightened
smells and tastes and looks
and wealth-empowering grace

We might yet give thanks
this religious
and political
ThanksGiving Day,
including both neuro-sensory fulfilling peaks
and over-stuffed purgation valleys.

Lessons Partially Learned

Parents

We too often act
and feel
the reverse is more quickly
and convenient
through rigid control,
or at least should
or could
or would like to be enlightened true
more than disempowering false:

Empowering cooperative ownership
arrives slowly
but resonantly
and more resiliently
through enlightened cooperative management

and win/win resonant tenure

And not so much the other

trusted ways abound
to cooperatively manage peace
that we would justly hope

into safest perpetuity

A trusted indigenous wisdom franchise
to retrain
and re-educate parents
and teachers,
empower economic programs
and enlighten social service leaders,

Not Making War

In anti-social economics
for escalating violence
and waging war,
what matters most
is who
and/or what
you actively distrust
divest enough to sustain revenge
and imprisoning
dissonant
dissociative dispassion.

In politics,
as diplomacy
and peace-building
and making love,
what matters most
is who
and/or what
you invest in trust
enough to create
and recreate compassion.

In healthy
and safe ecopolitics,
what matters most
is who
and/or what
you co-invest with trust
and do not secretly distrust
enough to recreate
therapeutic compassion
letting go of hate
before it’s too late
for traumatic unknowns
to become outgrown
historic dispassions
disappointments
disarray,
health and safety
distancing dismay.

Democratic Trust

When I drove away from the family farm
to embrace my freshman year
at the University of Michigan
in Vietnam-era 1970,

I was planning on majoring in political science
which later turned into a double major
in communication theory
and positive neuro-psychology

Persuasion,
cognitive/affective bicameral
conserving/liberating bipolarizing dissonance,
and more resonantly trusted
positive therapeutic attitude change.

What I do recall from PoliSci 101:
The well-researched underlying root value
for any healthy,
safe,
resilient democratic polyculture
is not LeftBrain polypathic intelligence
and certainly not more RightBrain
election campaign persuasive beauty,
but profoundly inclusive TRUST

Which,
when I later worked in theology,
rediscovered in what religious traditions
monotheistically refer to as FAITH
and/or
polytheistically embrace as COMPASSION.

Trust also turned out to become
the primary underlying value
for resilient communication
and deeply resonant
mental/spiritual robust health
and neuro-systemic safety

Slow-growing increased capacity
for unconditional regard
of people
and our plants
and our cooperatively-managed planet
developing public health urban areas
and cultivating regenerative farms.

I find it disappointing
and tragic, then,
that our disuniting State schools
coach young democratic residents
in win/lose debate
but not win/win trusted
faithful
cooperatively-intended
nonviolent dialogue.

This may have a causal effect
negatively reproducing Patriarchal-Capitalist
competitive mistrust relationships

Further embedding runaway
vicious circle revenge
militarism
racism
homophobia
sexism
ableism
punishing
criminalizing
imprisoning
Othering justice systems

Lacking robust muscularity
to restore and reward
positive ego-
and eco-
and anthro-therapeutic Trust
through proactive teaching
and studying
and mentoring
and mediating
win/win dialogue skills

For pro-active
cooperative co-investments
emotional,
financial,
political,
ecological,
theological

Polypathically reinforcing
a great healthy
and safe EarthTribe
polycultural university

Universe for engaging
co-passionate trust
in integrity,
synergetic relationships,
cooperatively therapeutic respect

Re-inspecting emergent Trust
through transparent
and vulnerable dialogue,
discernment

Intent to embrace healthy
and safe democratic communication
systems

Useful trust-building
for restoring cooperative farms
and urbane justice areas
we call
United humane States

Which was on my mind
and heart
when I drove away from the family farm
and my high school debate team
to embrace my freshperson
political scientist year
at the University of Michigan
in Vietnam-conflicted
mistrustful 1970.

Respect for Integrity

A competitive path,
society v individual,
to retributive justice
is measured in accountability
of the individual
to respect
the imposed justice system.

More cooperative polypaths,
individual Me AND social We,
to restoring Ego/EcoJustice
are measured in collective integrity

Polynomially
and/or polytheistically balancing
healthy positive energy
slow-growing resilient plants
people
planet

Throughout co-operative
space AND time now
past AND future
health AND safety
natural AND spiritual
physical AND mental metaphysical
regenerations of

Cooperative polypaths
destined to restore Ego/EcoJustice
co-mediating secular/sacred
new age dawning
old school fawning
creolizing integrity

Is definitely not
colonizing
ostracizing
and punishing.

Resilient peace
is not achieved
through dissociative punishment

Traumatic autonomous accountability events
do not have therapeutic outcomes
measured in Earth’s emergent integrity

Because,
as any gang
or tribe member knows,
trauma of past victimization
does not predict
a future of multiculturally
polyculturally inclusive
therapy

Because pathological governance
from predators above
is not resilient health
for those preyed upon
praying for natural
nurturing
nutritional compassion
below

Because systemic trauma
is not therapeutic
Because pathology
is not health
or integral wealth.

Rewarding Inclusion

I doubt it was a philosopher,
more likely an emperor,
but possibly both,
who first explored this sad relationship
between exclusion
and punishment,
colonialism
and repression.

I’ll bet it was a Taoist mother
afraid bad weather would smother
all hope of restoring future peace
who first engaged our glad elationship
between inclusion
and cooperative reward,
creolization
and multicultural
graceful impressions

This, our win/lose
zero-sum
retributive justice point

And yet also our win/win
nonzero-exponential
spiraling
revolving
restorative peace
counter-point

Balancing tipping points
toward cooperative polytheistic
polycultural possibilities,
secular and sacred,
for slow-growing resilient healthy seasons
and polyvagal
universal feelings
of neuro-sensory evolving
revolving safety.

Accidental exclusion
and intentional derision
of people with disabilities
win/lose dismay
disqualification
from LeftBrain
RightWing dominance

Together,
neglect and abuse
co-arise feelings of shame
self v other blame
punishing judgment
for being born
not LeftBrain
RightWing dominant enough
to earn our keep
in a commodified work force
neither enlightened playful
nor empowering peace-filled feelings

Industrially confined to slave
and prison
and asylum labor

PreIndustrially restoring wisdom
includes priority for inclusive
and incisive win/win intended
healing communication,
sustained healthy and safe
nurturing relationships,
growing multicultural
and ecopolitically rewarding trust.

Retributive justice
worships powers of royal affluence
while sacred restorying
of democratically inclusive peace
engages effluent co-powers

Of LeftBrain
RightHeart conserving
enlightened health
through resilient polycultural
anthro-wealth
of cooperative vocation

AND

For RightBrain
LeftHand liberating

through resonant polycultural
polytheistic vacation,

From Vicious to Virtuous

The circling

Exploring MidTerm MindBodies

Since preverbal nature sounds

everyday unrenouned

and outside verbal wealthy
for eco-systemic resilient safety,
not mere anthro-elitist despair
of win/lose zero-sum competition games
unraveling toward disrepair

distressed loss
into polarized unaware

Lose/Lose geno/eco-cide

The opposite proposition

EgoMinds with EcoNeuroSystemic Beautiful Bodies
of elegantly embodied sacred context
profoundly rich environments resiliently felt
but not always win/win seen,
touched with active hope
but not always actually felt filled
with sufficient post-traumatic faith
seen

or felt as energy
or even touchable

Like an ego-built mortal prison
and more like an EarthTribe prism
for metaphoric myths

Wise Old GrandMother Moon

polytheistically Golden Ruled

Our EarthTribe minds
play an eisegetical
hypothetical win/win game
transubstantiating our doubting
LeftBrain dominant minds
translating our body messages,
embodied neuro-sensory context,
environmentally felt and touched
as if by amused metaphoric

Poof!
Those icky PatriarchalCapitalists
finally voted out of monoculturing
degenerative
climate traumatizing
stress-triggering

and for losing win/win resonant healing peace

For legislative
