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.

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
feelings of safe empowering wealth
through resonant polycultural
polytheistic vacation,

Universal warm disregard
of pompous kings
and distinguished philosophers
disabled by LeftBrain
RightWing greedy punishment
exclusively disabling
anthro-integral
polyculturally resilient
tipping point balance

Rewarding inclusive RightBrain peace
restoring LeftBrain justice.

Therapeutic JustUs

Lori Gottlieb
describes mental health mediators
and dream translators
prescribing more cost-effective therapeutic questions:

Who am I?
What do I want?
What’s in my natural health/spiritual wealth
bilaterally balancing way?

What do I want more:
to autonomously control
OR
to be part of some monopolizing,
possibly monotheistic, Thing
bigger than egocentric Me?

May morph
more effluently co-therapeutic
than affluent expertise advice
into:
What do I want
to safely control
AND YET ALSO
be part of some EarthTribe
polyculturally intelligent Relationship?

Healthier
more inclusive
and indigenous
and holistic
and organic
and resilient
than excluded
and punished
and wounded
and thereby imprisoned
and victimized Me

And my LeftBrain capitalized dominance
affluently attracts Gottlieb’s rational health
and safety questions
about wounded AnthroEgos

AND my RightBrain effluent impressions
of slow-growing ecopolitical affluent feelings
grow improved for win/win cooperative global thrival
midst monoculturing win/lose competitive survival
of local health and safety therapeutic improvement
as a resilient panentheistic stress-reducer
organically connected cooperative management
re-connecting
iEarthTribe inter-religious narratives
sacredly inviting
more effluent trickles
and streams
and rivers
and oceans
of EarthTribe living
loving indigenous waters

Descended from prehistoric
more polytheistic
matriarchal cooperative economies
of co-invested local democratic

Tipping toward Tao balanced

healthy communing nutritional cycles
and recycles of ecofeminist
fertile restorative justice
regenerative healing wombs

Who are sacred We?

when we most effluently

What does bicameral MeWe intelligence want?

Rabidly emergent RightWing

EarthTribe restorative justice
public health affluence
is also resilient sacred peace
public safety effluence,
reformatively reflowing political ego/eco-integrity,
co-empathic panentheistic compassion.

Unlike our left-hemispheres
taught
and monoculturally
RightWing capital over-invested
win/lose zero-sum assumptions,

Truly therapeutic
EarthTribe resilient polycultural wisdom
is more of an effluently joyful
Eastern bodhisattva peace-growing process
than an affluently measured
messianic critical judgment event

Which I believe
is what the New Testament
good news of Jesus narrative
is ego/eco-systemically
all Holy Nature/Spirited about
indigenously peaceful
Truth affluent
and sacred Beauty effluent,
definitely not RightWing
LeftBrain dominant,
wisdom.

Gifted Doorways

“Grief can be a doorway to love.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

Grief can open toward gratitude
As loss can open doors to access gain

As trauma can open hearts
to therapeutic brains

As neglect can foster curious compassion

As depression
can incite active
co-empathic impressions

As double negative sociopathologies
can notice doorways
to positive psychologies

As double-binding
dualdark entropy
can open space
for positive double-binary energy strings
of co-empathic
multiculturing time

As isolating sadness
can open doors
to love’s transcendent gladness.

Wandering Through History

I wonder
about wandering into sacred history

Back
remotely far
in collective memory
before humanity,

When EarthTribe regenerativity
was all compassionately gifted
divinity,

Panentheistically expressed
in ecofeminist panting Earth’s
great rapturously gifted
economic ecology
of volcanic infilling relationships.

I wonder,
back before male religious cultures
and anthrosexual climates
were our elders sensory
linguistically
meaningfully sacred prime co-relationship
then LeftBrain purposely
separated

In a precisely either/or
dissociative producer/consumer way
away from divine/human companionship
as were sensuality
of morally healthy polycultures
democratically balancing
nonviolent co-governing
communication,

Long
long
before Earth’s great wondrous turning,
before verbal dominance
when religious dogma
overcame spirited natural experience
felt like communioned
EarthTribe reconnection

With all creatures here below
awake outside
riding on sacred Earth,
a land
and sea
of rich communications
enveloped in resonant
musical companionship.

I wonder
if all mammaling muses asked
invited
absorbed animally within
among each creaturely Other
inviting nonviolent hospitality
in healthy democratic return
of wealthy multiculturally religious
sensual
politically empowering communications

Of economically enlightened
theological companions
celebrating co-empathic
real time gifts

Wondering
as we wander
into sacred polycultural
history
of healthy ecosystems

Less Challenging Dances

I find it easier
and, admittedly, more fun
to climb through tough terrain,
piles of leaves,
loose rocks,
debris,

If
and when
my goal is not to push sweaty through
by force of independently superior will,

But
to dance
with EarthTribe’s diverse
and miraculous co-creations,
sometimes feeling monstrous,

While marching
up our co-arising
complexly gorgeous,

Some might say “athletic”
hill.

And, when more still,
too quiet to dance,
advance,
transport myself
from points A
through fully alphabetized Z

I sit with members
of my inter-connecting choir
to sing my solo
inside dialogues
and depressingly competitive debates

Rituals of stuck
in ambiguous refrains
and angry rounds
of songs I’ve come to care for
yet fear to unload out loud

Taking turns
to catch up
and on
and on
without permitting any advice
ever
regardless of how unilaterally wise,
nor comment
before this circling non-dialogue
completes the time allotted
for this therapeutic day
of deeply listening monologue.

And then my dance
begins inside
as sung by curiosity.

Open ended,
round and full of comprehensive stretches
across all open intersectional space
and sufficient
efficient
inter-connected time
to rhyme our stories
sung in resonance
of universal therapy
for uniting traumas.

But curiosity
does not predict
responses right
and wrong
or either serenely left
or redly fight.

Curiosity draws
us out toward undiscovered
yet felt recovered
resonance
reconfirming choirs of angels
singing Earth’s therapeutic climates
of bravely danced
resilience.

Parenting From Integrity

Parenting defiant trauma
attached to both hurt child
and wounded parent
needing to continue
co-invested relationships,
positive and constant,
without breaks
in healthy communication,
direct
and, if possible,
playful

Counteracting fear
that both TraumaChild
and I
will pressure ego-me
to choose a Win
for Self
to lose relationship
by distancing from Other;

To choose Me
over We.

I want to choose both Defiance
and Deep Listening
playing win to win together
co-passionate,
positive,
healthy communication

Frustrated by
Lose-Draw-Win
triage decision-making

As if emotionless withdrawn
leftbrain dominant communication
could out-perform
actively hoping
for contagious resilience,
resonant companionship,
mutual enjoyment,
bonded courage,
cultural curiosity
re-educating accurate empathy.

Demagogues and Pedagogues

Proclaimed the trunk to His roots:

A demagogue teaches
and preaches
as my head trunk talks down
to my frontline branches

Lesser beings who had best listen
and learn
my stern
and often punishing expectations

Explained the roots
to Her much-loved trunk:

A pedagogue first listens
at the refining foot
of a sacred grassroot system

To serve compassionate communication,
inclusive problem-solving,
celebreating win/win peak experiences
of resonantly embodied promise,
harmony,
musicality,
integrity,
synergy,
transparency,
vulnerability
to multiculturally omniscient expansion.

Demagogues
require retribution
to survive against win/lose
zero-sum competitions
threatening capital-headed
bloating at the crown

While pedagogues invite restoration
of fully embodied thrival
and win/win uncompromised revival,

Faith in nonzero sum
polyculturally active,
deeply saturating communication,
rooted in past peak communion
courageously curious experiences.

Benediction of Return

May you soon return
not as disempowered
disabled
and woefully unenlightened,
trespassing against integrity,
against peace
and restoring healthy justice

Nor even as an honored
LeftBrain dominating guest.

May you soon return
to our compassionate Home,
where loving voices
speak up courageously
for co-empowering dances
curiously sung
in co-enlightened scales
of benediction.

ReGenerative Health Systems

In Regenerative Design,
dialectical cooperative contrasts
need not also mean
suspiciously diabolical
competitive win/lose opposition
to our own internal RightWing
self-righteously
kinda venomously
prejudiced inside ego-supremacist
voices.

In Regenerative Communication,
sometimes questions
are expressed as peace-intended
hypothetical Truth Statements,
awaiting sacred polycultural transubstantiation
through healthcare giving and receiving
solidarity

Of a global multicultural full-spectrum
wellbeing value system
for cooperatively unitarian co-investments
in uncovering copassionate win/win
universal peace questions.

What is the sacredly felt difference
between integral revolutionary integrity
cooperatively co-investing economics
v. democratic healthy politics
of a restorative justice empowering
EarthView?

Can we compare distinctions
without natural/spiritual differences?
Indifferent LeftBrain
recognizing RightBrain musical
enlightenment,
personal enbrighten nest,
contextual mono v polycultural
co-protagonist messianic responsibility
for diminishing
segregating win/lose

Mentally and spiritually disabling,
overpowering unease
ignoring depressed
neglecting disabled suppressed
mis- and dis-trusting victims

Of needs for polycultural engagement,

and courageous
curiosity stands.

Full nondualistic dipolar spectrum
bicameral Left/Right prominent
interdependent win/win anticipation
too often thwarted climax
by lack of dialectical
co-arising polynomial/polycultural
dipolar interdependence
infusing balance
bipartisan co-engaging

Becoming globally shrill
disabling
wounding non-chill
dissociative
secularized
wounding win/lose prejudice
against right hemispherical
contextual
spiraling win/win co-intelligence

Is like believing our best
intuitive serotonin/dopamine confluence
is not predicted
by noticing 4-harmonic decibel
dialectical fractal strength
of gospel sung chords
in well-deep solidarity

With each discrete 4/4 temperate
rhythmic patterned octave
measuring copassions
metric ageless
co-invested beats

Without also noticing
most of our right hemisphere interdependent feeling
narrative is written in circular
spiraled musings,
reweaving relationships
of fluid win/win
co-empathic consciousness

In and out
flowing integrity’s indigenous well
swell of panentheistic sacred felt
passion stories,
narratives,
anthems,
psalms of diminishing
and augmenting harmonic flow
trends

Felt positive healthy win/win

Which recognize
