Seeking Wealthier Questions

Said the evangelical
straight white male
God-privileged Pastor
to the UU lesbian black ecofeminist
Reverend:

You are not feeding your flock,
You are not spiritually nurturing
with scripture teaching,
You are not preaching
religious family value answers

Your faithful community
remains hungry for divinely inspired fulfillment,
redemption,
salvation from Heaven v Hell ambivalence
about moral and civil
Health v Pathology
values v disvalues
degeneratively equivalent
to regenerative equity
and communal interdependence

as also Feminist RightBrain AntiThesis
cooperatively regenerating

Our faithful want empowering wealth
of enlightening non-violent communion,

of Christ’s gospel passion.

Said the lesbian black ecofeminist
in curious response:

You are right
to perceive your sacred

Gathered in individualistic search

But you are wrong
to suggest this is also true

The Self-Invested Boss

Straight from the New York Times,
The Macho Appeal of Donald Trump:
We saw him being a boss

A take charge kinda’ narcissistic guy;
just the kind of win/lose business capitalist
to Make America Even More Competitive Again,

Especially if you have always enjoyed
StraightWhiteMale privilege

And never sworn to defend
a democratic health care agenda
for the well-being of all the people
and plants
all over the planet
at all times,
in all federally-associated
and invested places,
sacred spaces.

Others saw and heard
a self-invested capital-privileged
narcissistic Boss,
of an old
and extremely tiring supremacist vintage,
who never could be a successful multicultural business manager
in the private sector,
much less a successful multicultural democratic facilitator
of public health and safety information
in our nation’s
and our regenerative Earth’s
best and brightest
cooperatively facilitated eco-political
resiliently robust interests.

Would you want him to be your boss?
Your dad?
Your teacher?
Your preacher?
Your mental and/or physical health care provider?
Your economic prophet?
Your family’s political co-empowerment advisor?
Your banker?
Your fearless leader
so full of fear
of anyone
not a wealthy
hopelessly secular and profane
competitive real estate marketer
and straight white male privileged owner
like him?

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.

Investing in HealthPower

I think the political left
makes too much noise
about enlightened democratic goals
of our LeftBrain dominant
white property-owning
ForeFathers

To be respectfully
and resonantly heard
by economic RightWing Christian,
and other Supreme-Dogmatist,
capitalists who don’t make enough noise
about Jesus’s multiculturaly liberating GoodNews

That win/lose capitalism belongs
to systems supporting economic privilege
while powers of global
liberal
lavish
radical
profound Love
belong in multi-faith cooperative enterprises,

Sacred Communion
divinely empowering Realms
Heavens
Paradise
and humanely enlightening
even the most merely natural and secularized EarthTribes
of co-redeeming deep listening circle value,
Commons Truth,
empowering Ways,
enlightening Means,
embodied healthy Beauty,
restorative Justice,
resilient Peace

Perhaps if we could bicamerally invite
a multicultured fluent
multicolored spectral dialogue
we might discover a democratically healthy Constitution

Influenced both by RightWing GodLanguaged
historical
new-nationalistic patriotism
to build a sense of solidarity,
and by LeftWing EarthCooperative economics
to build healthy
cooperative multicultural values

Regenerating blue/green/red/yellow/blue/purple/orange

Within Ultra-NonViolet EcoPolitical Circles

LeftBrain Avatar

LeftBrain thinking,
not an avatar
of compassionately feeling
emergent healing systems,

Chilly baptismal waters
of equanimity
do not typically suggest a warm bath
in multicultural
and global
democracy.

Is it possible,
reasonable,
healthy,
therapeutic
to carry gifts of resonant love
and extend them to those
evoking a long history
of patriarchal anger
and “vengeance is capital-invested mine”
disempowering fear?

How would this,
could this,
“should” this,
might this be different,
better
than fueling codependent anxiety
without realistically anticipated reform,
curiosity with transcending cooperative courage,
win/win communication out
without
win/lose return
back in,
external faithfulness without active internal hope?

Is it possible,
and even responsible,
more or less therapeutic,
to deeply burn with anger against Trumpism,
the blind excesses of narcissistic fascism
somewhat democratically turned over to empower a fool
by a near majority of lose-ego/lose-eco ignorant voters,
inexperienced with sufficient cooperative bicameral ecopolitics
to discern enlightening differences
between democratic love
and autocratic fear
of losing face,
noble retributive reputation,
emotionally satisfying financial success
far beyond simple ecosystemic life sufficiency?

Who might we become
if compassionate patriotism
were so democratically inclusive
our object of win/win regenerate love
could settle for no less object
than sacred green/blue
yellow/red
purple/orange,
and black/white at night
polypathic
polyphonic
polynomial equals not not polynomial
democratic
sacred-secular equanimity
of rightmind equals left-embodied EarthJustice,

To be faithful
to nothing less than full EarthTribe compassion
within empowering
as without democratically enlightening.

For me,
if I can expand my sense of loyalty,
commitment,
appreciation,
love for Donald Trump,
at least as much as I fear
all the leftbrain reasons to to be angry with him,
angry about what he deliberately fosters,
angry about what has led him away from democratic We,
to the very threshold of self-righteous
inhumane fascism,
climate terrorism,
that he iconically represents,

Then I can expand into a larger picture
mirroring the loving kindness
deep learning Source
and ReSource
for all that brings us to this moment
in globally polarized Time
to find our unwinding way back
back
back

To all-embracing love
for Original enlightening
empowering
democratic
multiculturing
co-passioning SummativeSource

Of BlackHole degenerative
yet integral lives matter
splatter spacetime dances
flirting with joyful rhythms
in becoming undivided
once and twice
and thrice again

Within 4D spiraling revolutionary frames
of sacred grace,
compassion,
beauty,
serene foregiveness
for lack of history’s win/win
sin
of leftbrain win/lose thinking

Stinking
slinking lack of rightbrain win/win
democratic
EarthPatriotic
interdependently viral feelings
extracting and extending
out to all rationally angry
and systematically terrified EarthTribes.

ReStoring EarthPeace

Now that Restorative Justice
has raised her Gaian ecological purpose,
to restore multiculturing peace
in polyphonic
polypathic Turquoise Eden,
how do you continue to justify
a win/lose Retributive Justice evolutionary philosophy
of law and moral order
as contributing to healthy
win/win
regeneratively revolutionary democracy?

Asked the ecosystemic Judge
of UnitingNations jurisdiction.

Restorative Justice
was never intended to be effective
where either victims
or predators
are unwilling,
often incapable,
of re-engaging in cooperative
interdependent
win/win dialogue,
egalitarian discernment
in-between Trust
and MisTrust
and hostile DisTrust.

So you argue
win/win regenerative assumptions
of natural/spiritual creatures
are not safely,
and not realistically, accessible
for all the healing dreams and purposes
endemic to our Gaian muse of Justice?

An insufficiency
of experience
with healthy democratic peace;
yes.

And,
how will continuing to primally rely on win/lose retribution,
where victims and a healthy society
are presumed to Win
by punishing criminals
and Loser scoflaws,
lead us toward this noble,
and globally multicultural, goal
of achieving healthy democratic peace
for all Earth’s regenerative creatures?

Retributive Justice
is the State’s weapon
to protect the Common Good
from further injustice,
a deterring threat;
not a tool
or medicine
toward an actively remediating peace,
domestic
or international,
private
or public resonant health.

How do you respond
to peace therapeutic win/win possibilities
of multiculturally mediated dialogue
to bring together victim compassion
with wrongdoer remorse,
without hyperactive threat of criminalization;
As compared to current Retributive Justice outcomes,
case loads,
imprisoned and exploited populations
of marginalized misfits,
disproportionately poor
and dark-skinned?

Traditional patriarchal systems
do not over-invest
in democratic health
or rights
of our predative
and victimized,
traumatized
feminized
marginalized
raped and pillaged citizens,
as these are not well-established
in win/win cooperative investments.

I’m not sure
arguing for further patriarchal
competitive win/lose capital-investments
helps your justice through win/lose punishment
cause.
You invite the Court to question
whether anyone is capable of sufficient Trust
toward resiliently democratic peace,
internal as external,
to actively communicate egalitarian
restorative
healthy democratic choice-making,
Facing toward compassion,
facilitating win/win disciplines,
expanding ego-recentering non-violence
therapeutically mediating ecosystemic compassion.

GreenDemocratic Health Images

Imagine your healthiest body
is a democratic
self/other empowering organism

Ideally,
most nutritionally,
nurtured by an also open,
living,
dynamic win/win preferential,
evolving,
revolving planetary universe,
in many sacred times and places
also known as MotherEarth.

Notice
your democratic bodymind
is an open
holistic
ego/eco-centering
co-invested re-centering,
co-acclimating interior and exterior
bilaterally systemic infrastructure
for democratic health,
rooted in mutual trust.

If your brain is in charge,
this is a democratic charge,
a coordinating
complexly inter-communicating
organic whole system responsibility,
leaving no individual organ or health function
irresponsibly behind.

Not an autocratic,
from above,
hierarchically patriarchal,
capitalistic
head-mind over felt-body matter,
unilateral authority
capable of long-term
win for leftbrain dominant mind
only at the cost of a lose
for rightbrain democratic
organic
interdependently felt nature/spirit
body/mind bicameral communion intelligence

Bilaterally ego/eco communing communication
looking for win/win neurological
whole system
democratic resolution of health issues,
pathologically autocratic cancers,
cognitive/affective predations,
viral dissonance,
rabid and rogue behaviors,
win/lose anthropocentric ego-inflations,
lose/lose terrors and global humiliations,
rather than win/win wonders
and sacred awe of Earth’s resiliently healthy
democratic regenerativity.

Now, recall important political statements
influencing your own development:

A family is not a democracy.
A classroom is not a democracy.

Both implied “should not be” statements
almost certainly true
in your own predominant civil empowerment/disempowerment
formative experience,

Embracing win/lose
either-me/or-you competitions
between empowered teachers and preachers
and not yet mature and experienced
sometimes you win,
usually you don’t,
children and adolescents
and young adults,

Many of whom,
especially those poorer and darker,
will graduate into military-industrializing subcultures,
where patriarchal
leftbrain dominant autocracy
of commanders
over enslaved
and rented both/and repowering bodies
become reduced to untrusting tools
and win/lose
high risk strategic weapons.

These young left-brain autocratic adults
will certainly not be gathering rich Trust experience
in democratic dialogue
over autocratic debate
about the weakness
of win/win EarthJustice restoring democracy.

So, is it possible to hear?

Families, like competitive classrooms,
intending young life healthy empowerment,
often autocratically disempower

An economic and political warning;
A challenge to overcome not-yet mature democracy
rooted in experience of robust cooperative Trust,
rather than an unintended civics lesson
in rabid leftbrain dominant autocracy,
as if capitalism
were patriarchally inevitable
as racial
and sexist
and homophobic
and xenophobic
and anthropocentric apartheid.

As if mutually mistrusting
competition for individual investment power
were democratically healthier
than win/win cooperative models
for shared mind/body
spirit/nature
sacred/secular
eco/ego-systemic wealth,

Resonant trust,
resilient love,
trusting compassion

Imagining our healthiest bodies
are democratic
self/other empowering
Earth responsible organisms.
