What’s In My Soup?

An important political
and economic issue,
at least for me:

What do I nurture?
What do we invest
and reinvest in?

If this Taoist “jaw” of Great TippingPoint Green Transition
toward Earth’s vast climate healthy wealth
must nurture LeftBrain Yang dominant red
Team competitions with,
and not against,
nationalism’s StraightWhiteMale violent privilege,
then how do EarthResidents also,
and more RightBrain primordially,
nurture Earth’s dipolar co-arising recreation?

Do I even try to nurture natural spirit investments,
conscientious re-ligion,
re-connections of
and for
cooperative secular/sacred reconciliations,
natural/spiritual remunerations,
yang/yin bilaterally restoring
Earth’s vast regenerative,
nonviolently communal,
ego/eco-NonZero balancing emergent Zone
of Heaven/Earth revolving

Co-empathic,
co-gravitating,
co-arising dipolar bicameral communication,
polypathic health/wealth developing systems
for nurturing RightBrain mercy
with LeftBrain restorative justice,
cooperative solidarity
with pro-active hope

That our most transcendent ego-liberal freedoms
remain systemically centered
for nurturing Earth’s Great Green Transitional interdependence

Of species,
guilds,
tribes,
forests,
meadows,
of living spirit/nature
ego/ecosystems,

Articulating,
expressing,
reincarnating,
nonviolently communicating
revisions to win/win ParadiseLost
through win/lose LeftBrain dominant

Woundedness,
separation,
deduction,
division,
reduction,
repression,
suppression,
depression

More afraid of lose/lose nihilistic
degenerative futures

Than angry about loss of
WinHealthy Yang Capital CoInvestments
to WinWealthy Yintegrity
of Earth’s Great Reverse
ReTransitional 20/20 AntiPandemic Promise

Eco-nomial-logically ego-renatured
conscientiously re-ligioning
Poli-Nomial-Culturally eco-nurtured

As HeavenLight’s wealthiest EgoPromise
re-nurtures
EarthPower’s healthiest Pleasure.

New MLK Day Revolutions

I have heard almost nothing about New Year Resolutions
this pandemic year;

Although personal sound waves are filled
replete with incomplete invitations
to take better health care
of personal
and social
and economic
and democratic
and public
and green climate nonviolent communication
wealth optimization

As we move post-millennially
and relentlessly,
perhaps as inevitably
as any self-fulfilling NewYear resolute expectation,
standing win/win apart
from ambiguous anticipation thoughts
with anxious feelings,
foreboding fore-tidings,
Right/Left
affective/cognitive dissonance;
fading resonance.

I have,
in this last pre-MLK week,
noticed an upsurge in human striving voices
invoking dark,
globally embarrassing, humor
and gratitude
for President BullHorn
for straight white male persuading
large majorities of Earth’s citizens,
red and green and yellow and orange,
black and mostly white patriarchally privileged
LeftBrain violently red dominant
RightWing wounded and terrifying,

To NewYear discontinue an elitist direction
we don’t want to continue pursuing,
extracting without explicitly agreeing
to democratically forego our constitutional commitment
to a healthy resilient multicultural republic
both polyculturally healthy and safe
for now,
and for all foreseeable future regenerations.

Many 2020s new year roaring revolution voices
seem to assume liberal v conservative choices
are limited to:
If one is good
then the other is bad,
opposites;

Appositionally,
demonstrably,
comparatively,
even consensually,
recognized as not true to personal
politically co-invested democratic experience
when we are discussing liberally loving
healthy
cooperative communication
and conservatively co-investing
in globally resilient public health
and climate WholeEarth safety.

Liberal left wings
and conservation right winged,
and all of us who faithfully remain
middling muddling in-between,
resolve closer to consensually green healing
than viral and climatic punishing pandemics,
ego-inside and eco-outside
our bilaterally integral sensory bodies,

We are
and often are not
re-transitionally resolved
for personal health
and/or public ecopolitical safety
sacredly cooperative Vocations.

When I feel healthiest and safest,
in this another new year,
in this early decade of Roaring BullHorn 20s,
is when I step outside
to listen for voices
of disenfranchised trees,
scolding squirrels,
babbling brooks,
rippling rivers,
surfing seas,
light conversations
between blue sky and cirrus clouds,
rain on rocks and rolling thunder
anthems

Sung in response to my questions
about what is healthy liberal YangLight
and conservative YintegrityPower?

And what is more Trumpian
nationalist
elitist Republican
pathological would-be autocratic fascism,
worship of richly narcissistic wounded
persons of exorbitant interest,
punishing power,
uninformed dissonant delusions,

Where StraightWhiteMale privileged
capitalist corporate minds
have falsely advertised resilient
and resonant bicameral fortunes
toward nationalistic
militaristic extractive wealth,
not so much durably thriving health
and safety through defensive win/lose strategies
strong pro-active
non-connective
violent colonizing aggressions
for mutual lose/lose
predator/prey assured destruction.

Sometimes Earth’s January voices
seem to predict
and celebrate
full climaxing
resiliently thriving healthy wealth.

Sometimes they warn of wounded and broken
personal and public,
social and political
and economic monocultural
non-MLK celebratory pathology.

But,
most of this NewYear resolving time,
especially when I’m working on MLK-Era
Revolutionary Green Resolutions
for restoring Ego/Earth-balancing Justice,
and WholeEarth Multiculturing Peace,
these nature/spirit,
inside/outside,
ego/eco-voices ignore my quests for wise discernment
because egocentric questions,
provided by past memories and future imagination,
are unworthy of macro-ecosystemic attention.

If the only choice I offer is:
“Should I live in a toxic,
fossil-fuel burning condo
or in a toxic,
fuel-burning trailer park?”

Why would such ancient god and goddess voices
and smells,
sounds and senses,
respond to these unintended wounds
and win/lose competitive broken messes?

Asking for less than wisdom
to always resolve win/win
revolutionary green new era decades
inviting questions and resolutions
exploring
remembering future images
of liberally conserving celebrations.

Mercy’s UnBlind Justice

I suspect mercy may be more resiliently empowering
for optimizing multicultural health
as compared to uniform law
and ordered, cookie-cutter, justice
unresponsive to ubiquitous mitigating circumstances
of unique spaces
and relentlessly changing times.

Mercy recognizes society’s environmental
historical contributions to loss,
to absence of equitable justice
more aware of each individual perpetrator’s responsibility
to society
to family,
to local community

Society’s justice,
without nurturing
restorative mercy,
speaks decontextualized
un-nuanced authority of capital-measured economic systems
including reasonable and fair expectations
of retributive law,
imprisoning neglect
and sometimes violently punishing order.

I wonder if both justice and mercy
improve therapeutic co-arising potency
restoring merciful justice
AND
revising metaphysically just
equitable
reuniting mercy,
co-redemptively resolving
what Earth has positively conjoined
in thoughtful truth
and felt beauty

Breathing,
re-animating,
enspiriting
inspiring nature’s in and out climates
of seasonal development,
undevelopment,
redevelopment,
anti-development,
pro-development,
fractal phases of leftbrain space
mercifully greeting,
halfway meeting,
bilateral rightbrain TaoTime

With merciful multicultural anticipation,
so less competitive room
for monoculturing white justice anxiety.

Grand Old Trump Party

President Trump,
shortly after his singularly smelly election,
declared emphatic comparisons with Elder Republican
Abraham Lincoln.

Early on,
he described Lincoln as his kindred political soul,
admired mentor,
and the former President he was destined to most resemble
in spirit and success;

Presumably not including assassination
causing an abrupt end to his second term in office,
won by a landslide–
even if mainly because the ancestors of many Trump loyalists
were not in a northern political position to vote that year.

More recently,
President Trump,
not one to drop names of people who don’t actually exist
outside his own narcissistic imagination,
relayed the uninvited twitter message,
People tell him,
apparently hoping for the privacy of anonymity,
that he is already the greatest Republican President
in US history,
including Abraham Lincoln,

Who would be so supportive of Trumpian caging of children,
supportive of DT’s mockery
of women,
of people with disabilities,
of those homeless,
of people poor,
criminalized
traumatized by violence…
The list goes on in a remarkably non-Lincolnesque
non-spiritual
unChristian
snarky kind of way.

I imagine the President has heard Lincoln’s observation about trust
so necessary for even a quasi-healthy democracy,

“You can fool all the people
some of the time,
and some of the people
all the time,
but you can’t fool all the people
all the time.”

President Trump isn’t known for being a reader
outside consuming twitter posts
and Fox non-news banners,
but it seems he might have heard,
possibly read,
this Lincoln proverb as a challenge,
or just went with optimizing the promise that he could fool some people
all the time–
good enough for government work.

President Trump made it clear,
even before his Inauguration Day,
that only those people who could appreciate the splendorous beauty
of his naked narcissistic garments and greed would:

  1. get to heaven,
  2. become TrumpMedia empowered
    to hate multiculturally resilient democratic constitutions
    and healthy co-governance systems.

Speaking of aphorisms,
this night of January 6th,
my ecosystemic soul bows to the post-full moonlight
remembering,
“It is always darkest just before dawn.”

I grab onto this hope,
but then realize
Whoever knows this to be true from experience
could only speak this with reassurance
after the first hint of emergent light to the East,
source of sacred light
and EarthlyPower.

Is this as dark as fragile democracy
and patriotic civility must fail
this self-governing experiment?

I can’t quite yet see an Eastern sky of fading stars
although I would love to be vision corrected,
perfected to see light and power
in this climatic polarized time
of win/lose ecopolitical rabidity,
eating our children’s future,
wasting their water
and formerly fertile soil,
and decimating shading fruitful trees.

I can imagine a darker hour.

I can imagine my children
speaking with their grandchildren
about now vanquished land and water mammals,
the improbable kangaroo
and porcupine
and skunk

About former forests of mature trees,
huge plants
strong rooted
and reaching up
and out
much taller than the tallest remaining human;
now aging memories of neighbors lost forever.

Earth’s elder democratic,
healthy,
polycultural,
living biosystems might well survive
our species,

The only one that appears motivated to elect leaders
invested in fooling all the people
all the time,
of ignoring the rights and pleasures,
truths and beauty
of all “lesser” species
and “weaker” people,
now reduced to natural commodities
throughout Earth’s darkest hours.

Violence Separates Us

My senior minister just now
pointed out and in toward Washington
aware of this extraordinary Time.

Violence separates us
from the ordinary
every time,
she speaks from her own experience.

I quickly agree.

Then, notice ways I do not agree
if violence denotes
feelings of violation.

Violence does not separate military time
from ordinary civilian time;
we call that chronic stress disorder,
mental problems,
spiritual issues,
weaponized opposition.

Violence does not separate
poor people
marginalized people
ignored, neglected, and abused species,
animals,
trees,
rivers,
oceans,
soil,
air,
Earth,
from ordinary
Business As Usual Time.

This statement reminds me
of two opposing experiences
in my own life,
white privilege,
where violence is what happens to other people,
and gay male child,
all growed up in a homo-hate environment,
where ordinary violence was about what I deserved
if I were caught
being me.

We want violence to be the exception
to cooperative economics,
nonviolent communication,
restorative EarthJustice politics,
empowerment,
enlightenment experiences
of multicultural healthy wealth,
for all EarthCreatures
and living ecosystems.

Still,
on this dark night
it feels hard to painfully remember
that violence is more exceptional
to ordinary experience
for some Haves
as compared to HaveNots.

Red Green and Blue

Red grows politically angry
about wealthy society’s conspiracy
to keep my ego away
from health’s abundant wealth.

Blue spreads out
economically fearful of anger’s power,
my own loss of leftbrain control,
most times less,
sometimes more
than terrifying competitive victory,
unhealthy monopolization
of light and power,
wealth accumulated
by neglecting
postponing
preempting HaveNot wishes,
accelerating Earth abusive investments
of a powerful
and punishing
highly narcissistic
inhumane
pissed off
judgmentally quivering society,
blatantly unsustainable.

Green ecological relationships
remain hopeful
the conjunction of two polarizing
paralyzing negatives,
anger and fear,
like two negatives
equaling a positive,
will produce healthier wealth,

Not more political envy
and economic greed;
but heavenly peace
and nonviolent EarthJustice.

Kindred Spirits

If life’s sacred meaning
is found,
or perhaps never even lost,
through active multicultural regenerativity,

I hope love’s secular purpose
might find me,
and us,
through Earth-responsive recreation,

Like white patriarchal privilege
recalling
compelling matriarchal herstories
of dualdark degenerativity,

Like healthy green spring
is to winter wealthy snow.

He Curiously Listens

He listens for my integrity;
our highest and best destiny

As if interred in our children’s
still living oral tradition
Then captured in post-millennial
historic textbooks
on cooperative eco-politics

Illustrating what I did
and did not do
for/against future regenerous climate health
when these same children experience
their children’s
children
appearing resilient
against degeneratively persistent
health wealthing doubt.

What I have imagined doing
win/win with others
I have seldom done.

What we have cooperatively planned doing
win/win with and for and of others
we have seldom undone.

What I have not imagined doing
by my self
investment
he could not easily imagine
to proclaim health
resiliently accomplished

ReInvesting more
in what would otherwise remain personal turf
behind some gilded
and tightly closed
front door
of alternating deep peaceful solitude
and further anticipation
of comfortably laureled silence,

Enough,
at last,
he said

With my righthand
lonely panic
writing in lamenting internal voices

Waiting for his first large-staged break
into an appreciative and prepared audience
to receive each other’s great health-systemic wisdom
wealthing win/win networks

As transubstantiated
by our own integrity experience.

Gaia Steps Out

Gaia steps out
to listen

She may roar in full voiced
crescendo

Then retreat, hiding
anticipating with global delight
diminuendo

Tomorrow
our first perfect win/win day
when no win/lose to lose/lose
has unpromisingly happened
to trigger my anxiety,
innuendo

Of win/win delight
empowering Sun’s sacred
yellow persevering light

Gaia will step out
virginally tomorrow
when magically
and/or tragically invited

To step on out
without even Her inner ego
climate listener
to awesomely admire
what She would have said
if She had only win/win felt
to think dipolar co-arising
Green/Blue cooperative compassion

Stepping into nonviolent dialogue
communications in/exforming
health with wealth
non-zero interdependently reconnecting
today’s worst day potential
with tomorrow’s best day opportunities

Stepping up and out
in defiant celebration
of Earth’s primal gift economy
empowering
and enlightening
democracy’s stealthy health
into and through
20/20 non-custody of systemic eyes
and listening ears
in regenerative win/win review

Stepping into
Green ego/eco-climate balance
double-binary both/and dipolarity
of patriarchalism
monotheism
racism
sexism
anthro-supremacism
more risky
when USA patriotically made
in His straight white male image.

Stepping through
LeftBrain Win to Lose
devolutionary theories
of surviving orthodox straight white
anthro-capitalistic Win sacred Spirits
by Losing secularized natural sensory feelings

Stepping beyond repressing
Indigenous left/right co-emergent wisdom
bicamerally walking
eco/ego-therapeutic reconnections

Gaia steps boldly out
for green cooperative interfaith
multiculturing re-ligions
of EarthTribe’s polyculturing wealth
for cooperatively nurturing species

Stepping through
this Great Green/Blue Transition
restoring EarthLoyal salvation
of NonZero Holy Animated SoulPowers
fed and interfaith fueled
by Sun’s radiant gusty
lusty warming ecological winds
and GrandMother Moon’s ultra-nonviolent
EarthPeace dreams
of light and power

Stepping into calming clouds
shading our green/blue yellowing sphere
with fading frost polarities
emerging brown drought dust spots
and slowly rising warming oceans
surfing up super-wet hurricanes
and windstorms

She steps on
in response to some safety question
about healing filling silence
when the only voices still available
are outside creature voices

Stepping into Gaian ancient narratives
of revolutionary light
sweeping aside dualdark bilateral feelings,
evolutionary progressive win/win process
for thriving ecopolitical wealth
of winds fertilizing warm waters

Gaia steps toward Heaven shining
on EarthEmpowering Justice,
ego/eco-systemic
bicameral Green/Blue/Red Peace

Stepping regeneratively win/win,
generatively win/lose,
degeneratively lose/lose

Gaia steps around
and over
and under today’s worst health pandemic
to invite tomorrow’s integral sacred promise
providing a safe healthy space
and future paradise time
when no bad thing
could possibly yet have already happened
except anxiety
about win/lose anxiety

Foreseeing an unforgiving
merciless Green Gaian Rage
against our super-redwinged
anthroprivileged selves

Yet, even so,
Gaia bicamerally steps out
to non-violently listen
witness
mediate
restore interdependent Ego’s

freaks at URBAN VIOLENCE!!!

But has only recently reconsidered
more domestic wisdom
moving away from criminalizing
marginalizing
death sentence violating
judiciously punishing
victims of parental

and capitalistically corporate competitive neglect,

LeftBrain ego-wounded addiction
to cheap self-medications,
violent entertainments,
domestic chronic battlefield stressful violence,
economic and educational disinvestment,
social nasty distancing apartheid,
and what does “compassionate communication”
even actively
hopefully mean?

As if individual egos
are solely responsible
to authorize their own
choice of sacred birthing Earthwomb.

My RightWing family
is horrified by spousal abuse,
especially among those lower class
non-straight
non-white

who don’t need no custody of the eye
