Local Living Matters

I hear things right side down
and bottom left side up
as I get older
so consider the source.

Anyway,
I hear Colchester Connecticut Democrats,
and some cross-registering Republicans,
want to establish
a multicultural health commission
concerned about military
and local police mercenaries
feeling discriminated against,
picked on,
unloved,
left out,
under-valued,
ignored,
neglected,
abused,
shot at.

T Rocko is concerned
such a vast investment
in multicultural respect,
solidarity of resonance,
integrity of long-term resiience
through commitment to public dialogue
rather than contentious debate,
could only be justified
with quantitative data

Adding up how much
anti-militarism
and anti-police prejudice
exists
and costs
in Colchester.

In this political
and economic moment
of social cooperative distancing,
dissociation,
scape-goating,
rabid polarization,
toxic partisanship

We need a baseline,
says he,
of mutual disregard,
to measure regenerative progress
and/or degenerative retrenchment
from community integral investments
in health remediation,
inclusive wealth
for future cooperative governing generations.

Rudko,
self-appointed sole guardian
of our public investment purse,
responds,

Supporters of Armed Lives Matter
are “making a generalization…
not based on facts”
that silence means discontent,
speaks echo-chamberly
of feeling an unhealthy
lack of mutually fulfilling safety

Too risky
for speaking up transparently
to listen vulnerably
to all cooperative opportunity “Other”
and “Alien”
and “Immigrant”
And especially Not Straight Male Dominant
voices,
narratives,
aggressive predation stories
of relentless win/lose debate
rather than cooperative win/win dialogue
with social and multicultural intelligence.

UnNatural Climates

Speaking of climate health
and multicultural wealth,…

Yes. You have a question?…

Were you here for our previous session?…

No, I mean our most recent dialogue,
published just before this one….

OK.
Well, we were speaking of,
while deep listening to,
natural health systems
and spiritually nurturing ecopolitical wealth networks….

Natural climate health
and spiritual,
multiculturing conservational
conversational wealth,
of whole organic
open living systems
temporally unidirectional,
yet spacetime ZeroZone multilaterally
polypathic leftbrain
and polyphonic rightbrain….

Yes.
Thank you for your questions.
Anyone else?

OK, so I will assume those still present
and silently contemplating
were here for our prior guided dialogue
about non-violent communication
with religious rightwing dualists
fundamentalists
evangelically leftbrain dominant
monoculturally sinful and/or ignorant

Of a crucial difference,
severance,
double-binding oppositional bipolar divide,
a barrier to mutually helpful communication
we experience
between a sacred, theological experience
of reconnecting
reknotting
religion

And a secularized natural ecological relationship
of disconnecting
segregated
degenerating
privileged
violently closed
monoculturally supremacist
anti-religious dogmatic theory
of supremely autonomous anthropocentrism…

Yes,
like only humans
could live fully in Heaven
as on healthy Earth.

Which is much more about violently sinful nature
and fear of natural-spiritual sensory compassion
and closed system mortality
and anti-holistic
open handed eco-political democratic experience
within multicultural spirit optimization networks,

Leftwing/rightwing
bicamerally non-violent communication,
compassionate communion,
cooperative dialogue
restoring EarthTribe
natural health with spiritual wealth
democratic discernment

Speaking of climate health
and multicultural wealth….

Yes.
More, rather than less,
where we left off
in our prior right on
dialogical session.

The Big Fascist Elephant

Once upon eternal time,
all philosophers
and theologians
and ecologists,
published and unpublished,
credentialed and indigenous,
elders and children
and all ages in-between,
alive and dead
and all health indicators in-between,
got together
to sort out our competitive win/lose mess
of competing theories
about just what is this elephant
star of our BigTent historic stage.

Some,
especially straight men of color,
but many others as well,
argued the head of this fascist elephant
is racism.

Others,
especially straight white women,
and their feminist allies,
argued the head of this pathological creature
is patriarchalism.

Others,
especially LGBTQ wo/men,
and their straight allies,
were sure this fascist elephant head
is homophobic sexism.

Others,
especially positive psychologists
and communication system theorists,
encouraged more resonant dialogue
about how this fascist elephant
is led by either/or deductive
reductive left-brain cultural dominance.

Others,
especially social psychologists,
whole system thinkers,
eco-political pathologists,
permaculture ZeroZone restorative healers,
advocates for restorative justice as peace,
cooperative economic ecologists,
WholeEarth systemic theologians
advocated multicultural co-mentoring
non-violent communication
to better see and hear
heal and not punish,
feel and think
with full mindbody intelligence
about how this fascist elephant
of Western hemisphere dominant capitalism
win/lose favors egocentric monoculturalism
elitism
narcissism
ethnocentrism
anthropocentrism
through metaphoric polypaths
dreaming
streaming
scheming all of the above.

Polycultural CLIMAX

There is nothing more healing,
within my own limited experience,
than a good
vulnerable
cooperative
compassionate
co-invested CLIMAX.

There is nothing more of a good
full-body
well-being CLIMAX
then healing,
restoring peace,
ease,
co-passion,
ego/eco-political justice,
democratically-held and interdependently evolutionary,
expansive,
after-glowing flow.

The thesis that environmental climax triggers
do not cause my love
or anger,
do not make me loving
and do not make me angry,
Is like saying my testicles
do not make me horny;
It’s all in my lustful head.

Like believing Donald Trump’s rabid win/lose narcissism
does not make me angry,
and could not trigger my anger,
were it not for choosing my own egocentric
and capitalistic
and predative
and extractive
and dissociatively unhealthy
rabidity.

I agree it is useful not to collapse
neurologically felt autonomic agency
with social-psychological learned triggers,
but severing environmental stimuli
from internal negative causes,
and otherwise positive choices,
too often results in blaming
shaming
and prejudicially judging
the victim’s underlying values
and traumatically learned experience
lacking choice-making toward win-win empowerment
and ecosystemic compassion,

Left/right bicameral
polyphonic resonant flow
with polypathic resilient strength

To remember no cooperative choice
could be more naturally/spiritually healing,
than an ecologically/theologically good
vulnerable
nakedly transparent
compassionate
co-invested CLIMAX.

Sacred Discernment

Perhaps a way to turn
from failed
and often violent
retributive justice
to grab healthy hold
of restorative justice

Would ask,
What is this deep difference
between discerning judgment
and moralistic judgment?

To discern,
and not to condemn,
is mutually empowering
and not autonomously powering over another,
against all Others potentially suspicious,
falling short of my own godlike Mark,
Imprimatur,
Papal Seal of good personal housekeeping.

Moralistic judgment
is a win/lose game
always casting oneself
and one’s own
as protagonist,
self-righteous wise Prosecutor,
representing your State’s infinite not-listening Wisdom.

Discerning judgment
is a win/win game
of cooperative
co-invested compassion.

Discerning judgment
begins with listening for what we already share
in common point of view.

Moralistic judgment
seldom finds time
for such resonant celebration
in cooperatively-held sorrow
and joy,
personal defeat
and political triumph.

Active win/win discernment
bears more humbly in mind and heart and voice,
Do not tear apart
what we can’t put back together
again
and again
and again

As faithfully as healing sunrise
and therapeutic sunset;
As mysteriously
and curiously restoring moon rise
and resonant moon fall.

Congressional Grace

I’m still reading Your Resonant Self,
by Dr. Sarah Peyton,
speaking of how contempt
destroys relationships
formerly cooperative
and, thereby, healthy.

Disgust about oneself
and contempt against Other
are interrelated,
like ego and eco,
like Yang and Yin,

“Humans seem to be capable of disconnecting from others
[and our disgusting selves]
on a large scale
or small scale.” (p. 209)

I’m reminded of listening to the Trump Impeachment Debate,
hearing contempt for democratic dialogue,
for loyalty to trust,
transparency,
vulnerability to unmediated light,
healthy curiosity,
courage to choose compassion,
for self and other,
for ego and eco,
rather than contempt.

Not that congressional debates
are suddenly plagued by partisan win/lose rhetorical strategies.

As a communication
and a psychology major,
I learned ancient techniques for persuasion,
for attitude change.
But, an underlying safe
non-partisan environment
of mutual trust,
of loyalty to a healthy Earth,
precludes giving way to the contagious temptations of contempt
against any OtherParty,
disgust about endemic economic and political corruption
of my own run-away win/lose internalized Party.

But, I have two points
seen more clearly through Dr. Peyton’s “Resonance”:

One,
we are capable of national disconnecting shared-identity contempt
against threatening Other
because we were born win/win capable,
from warm attachment healthy birth
of cooperative compassionate development
toward healthy adult/adult resilient relationships,
rooted in our shared destiny
as bicameral EarthDwellers,
EarthTribe,
Mother EarthWomb Integralists.

Second,
contempt grows nationalistic partisanship
because localized compassion can also go viral,
global,
universal
contagious wealth of health-empowerment values
making resonant living systems possible,
re-creative potentiating

As darkness
can be noticed as dark
only by those capable
of remembering light,
power womb enlightenment,
empowerment,
passion,
compassion,
advent,
Christmas Birth,
Lent,
Easter EgoDeath,
Republic elitism,
Democrat non-elitism,
rhetorical contempt,
non-violent narrative,
red rightwing rage,
green leftwing synergy

Wishing all ego-parties
and ecosystems
healthy wealth of EarthPassionate ChristMass
political body-minds
economically double-bound nature-spirits
secular-sacred cooperative co-investors
both out and in
within Earth CoPassion.

Political Health

In this body
in which I healthy live

And, in this economic class
in which I study comparative social investments,
some more belligerently competitive,
others reassuringly warm culture cooperative,

We use these health v pathology discernment tools,
experiences,
memories,
images,
predictions,
investment histories,
to understand how we are publicly
and privately committed
to our nutrition nurturing environments
within sacred Earth,
how we secularly are with ecological relationships
violently and non-violently communicated,
competitively ZeroSum debated
and cooperatively NonZeroSum,
plus emergent ecosystemic health multipliers, discussed,
commissioned by alien transcendent, yet fragile, Divinities
communioned by and through EarthMother’s
recycling strings of recombinant DNA.

In this ecologically relational
and economic health body
in which I live,
I cannot hear your communications
as irrelevant to my racial characteristics,
my financial value history
as commodified
in U.S. currency,

In liquid
and frozen
and over-heated assets
and environmental liabilities,
because these are germane to our power assessment
of me as an individual,
within a non-extended monocultural Republic,
And an extended polycultural Species,

Sharing this sacred ecological network
of interdependent organic systems
often green and brown and black
and red and blue
shades of light and shadow
multicultural sanctuary felt
and octave hues and tones remembered
as MotherEarthCentric warm moist memories,

Iconic Source
of all wombed health,
EarthMother resonant wealth

In this body
in which I live
and sometime die.

More Questions

Why is music
more emotionally important than rhetoric?

Why is grace-full dance
healthier than verbal prance?

So many questions
more important than private answers…

I question why
my faith community
provides sanctuary to legally-challenged immigrants
24/7,

And yet, has not actively opened our sanctuary
to local homeless and health-challenged emigrants from outside places
on Sunday mornings, nine to noon,
and during Wednesday evening choir practice,
and during Tuesday evening Green Sanctuary meetings
about Earth justice
and internal/external environmental-contextual fragility,
and other health challenges
for building multicultural well-being,
faith,
active hope

Resonant throughout this local place
and resilient throughout our global pace
monocultural race
of eco-theological climate space
and nurturing time

Sung in transparent octaves of music
more intuitively significant than rhetorical debate;
one heard cooperatively
and the other spoken to win ego-support
and loss to ecopolitical competitors,

Which is not criminal behavior
yet perhaps worthy of impeachment
and excommunication
for anti-communion behavior.

Fragmented Responsibilities

What would it take
to understand
a right to life
includes a right to choose well-being
or failure
for one’s internal identities,
organs,
organisms?
AND
A right to choose
self-embodied empowerment,
health,
is a right to life redemptive choice
over deadening felt loss
of continuous healthy lifetime,
now present
and on through long-term future identities,

Vocations of sacred being wealth
of identity’s integrity,
rooted in EarthTribe experiences,
memories collapsed from all past life-streams.

Perhaps if we reduced abortion charges
rhetoric
from self-righteous indignation against “Murderers”
to a form of relentlessly catastrophic manslaughter
no child of capitalism has not known
at least in lack of active co-investing intention,
passion to open a dialogue door
toward win/win complexly inter-connected solidarity
rediscovered within healing discernment
about who is responsible for choosing this win/lose slaughter
and who is not responsible
for lack of win/win options.

Should we actually find
at least some One innocent enough
to cast the last win/lose might makes right
evolutionary stone
aimed against the rest of us
for massive lack of win/win hope-inspiring integrity

That iconic One
radically free from transparently disvaluing vulnerable lives
and toxic choices
to slaughter part of our sacredly connected selves

Free for listening to our own shared experience
of this interdependent Earth life web,
Longing for more resilient
sure
buoyant healthy,
co-relational, without cancerous mutiny,
co-creation
liberating Earth life for slow-growing ever deeper
interdependent win/win choice,

Wherever
and whenever EarthTribe will listen to loss and gain
freedom and pain
internal yet multicultural GoldenRule voices
against throwing stones
against cooperative-intended health care
as if we and they both mattered;

Mother and child,
EarthMother and naked
vulnerable
divinely humanizing children
reborn into Earth’s continuing potential
for unfragmented Paradise.

Dream Dialogue

Last night
R. D. Laing
re-searched for his original Politics of Experience.

This political research
transubstantiates through sensory-neural communion
of felt right-brain experience
re-gained through integral therapeutic re-lateralship
with MotherEarth’s here re-nowed
cooperative/competitive rhetorical events
empowering further synergetic re-search…

Then Patrick J. Deneen
responded with his strong bipolarized win/lose confusion
about Why Liberalism Failed.

Liberalism,
like capitalism,
begins left-brain dominant re-search
to transubstantiate all human/divine
secular/sacred
Left/RightWing interrelationships,

Beginning with matriarchal nutritional
warm-breasted
empowering double-bonds
of attachment/detachment,

EarthMother/Child co-depend
on communications cooperatively chosen
on the foundation of our mutual win/win service
to rational ego/eco
yang/yin
fragmentation/integration
inside/outside transactive,
left/right mutual health utility
to cooperatively grow secure liberating re-portions
of resiliently transcendent love.

Finally, couples therapist,
Dr. Sue Johnson
asked if we might all co-respond
with prejudice toward natural/spiritual attachment,
starting each warm-breasted day
with a prayer to always Hold Me Tight
in sickness and in strength
for robust wealth of health,

Through this climatic night
of re-search lights too resonantly bright
for resilient win/win soothing multicultural sight,
in ego
and out matriarchally ecological
MotherEarth theological experience

Re-stressing uncertain double-binding
ego/eco-rhetorical events,
potentially re-birthing,
re-connecting too-competitive/not-enough-cooperation lovers
anxious about angry abuse
and/or neglect through fear
of future win/lose toward lose/lose Loss,
suffering,
ignorance,
sin,
non-WinWin co-redemption

This politically experiential way
of working and playing
toward win/win cooperative relationships
not only helps humans divest of competitive win/lose patterns,
but also re-creates re-newed re-sense
of win/win integral Creation’s ZeroZone womb
of original loving interconnection

With win-win EarthMother/Infant,
Interdependent right-brain re-identity/left-brain childhood Individuation,
Sacred transcendent being/Secular becoming transactionally liberated,
Yang secure/Yin freedom of integrity’s potential

Liberally timeless rhetorical re-event dialogues
still holding us left/right re-transubstantiating
empowering sacred communion’s re-experience
of health/wealth
re-living resilience,

Polypathically co-acclimating original deep dream resonance
through transactional politics of sacred experience.
