Born of CareTakers

Born of wombs
for premeditated health
and restoring nutritional wealth,

We might warmly anticipate
a more win/win democratic living Earth communion,
more like an organic gardening womb
than a lose/lose political capital-overinfested swamp,
filling in with unhealthy communities,
filling in with dysfunctional nuclear-ballistic families
and tribes,
filling in with shame and blame starving
thirsting
habitat-less
unwarmed
isolated self-righteous
non-leftist individuals,

Longing to return
from whence we Earth CareTaker came.

Before wounded parents
and win/lose mentors and teachers
of competitive debate
and not cooperative
civil civic discussion
began our partisan disloyal-to-Earth debates.

Wounded left-brain dominant verbal
win/lose
either/or debate enculturation,
is important as a first step
to understand our chosen
and/or assigned,
bought and paid for
health/wealth cooperative position
to defend
and grow
and win
with either my way
or Earth’s benighted highway.

But, wounded parents,
mentors,
teachers,
preachers are apt to omit the second step
of debate preparation:
Get into your opponent’s head(s).
What will they say
do
think
feel
to persuade your shared audience,
if not you,
that your Earth CareTaker position
is, in fact, not healthy
not wealthy,
not robustly rightbrain resonant
and profoundly leftbrain resilient?

Will they say you are well intended
but are too liberal
in your polypathic/polyphonic love?

Will they find your healthy longings
for ecological and theological intersectionality,
secular and sacred interdependence,
too extravagant,
too ambitious,
too liberal,
too costly,
too unsafe,
too naive,
too non-violent for responsible defense
from their own already-anxious win/lose offense?

Our own self-unfulfilling lose/lose
nihilistic
mortal
dissociated
disinvested prophecy?

How will you cooperatively win/win?
How might we regeneratively
resonantly
resiliently respond to courageous curiosity
with warm appreciative inquiry,
with warm accompaniment
remembering way back
to that originally unwounded
and EarthCoPassionate
warm wet womb?

LeftBrain debate may be Earth’s healthy prologue
but RightBrain appreciative warm-felt dialogue
is EarthCare Discerning epilogue;

History
is to Destiny
as win/win polypaths
are to polycultural health/wealth outcomes
for all God’s Earth CareTakers.

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.

Difficult Discernment

We were discussing a line
between reasonable compromise
and unconscionable denial
in this time of rapidly escalating fragmentation

When I thought I heard a raw spot
deepened and widened by dissonant history
of disagreement,
antagonistic feelings about noetic consciousness
of past pathological
bad climate events.

Yet
when I ask how you feel
about how we are responding to your position,
story,
exposition,
entrenched in anxious missed communication opportunities
to share your own excitement,
You respond by blaming yourself
for not making your experience clear
quickly enough
given our limited time for co-invested commitment.

Is that your raw spot?
Our limited consciousness
about raw and bleeding climates of mortal turmoil
metaphysically remembered
through past regenerations/degenerations of limited time,
inevitable demise of relationship
currently valued by investment felt
in a more win/win
than win/lose history of personal communication,
communion,
mutually compassionate understanding
feelings of safe yet free dialogue
between appreciative teachers
who are first curious and compassionate listeners,

Listeners to now,
co-presence of ancient raw and therapeutic places
for terror and nurture,
for replanting and reharvesting,
for teaching and listening,
for articulating painful memory
and reflecting on therapeutic future response,
for win/lose plots within win/win commitment spots,
for curious thoughts
and feelings of emergent integrity,
experiential and yet re-membering
co-presently teaching here with active listening now
for past and future emotional voices,
some with, and many without, full consciousness
of responsive choices

For discussing discernment
between reasonable win/lose climates of compromise
and unconscionable denial
of life impeaching raw spots
in this time of rapidly escalating fragmentation,
where inclusive vulnerability
would better seek and find integrity.

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.

Emotional Intelligence

Glutted left-brain information media
actively hope to understand

Why does emotional intelligence
speak to egocentric concerns
of mortality and discomforting toxic defeat,
loss and difficult win/lose everyday choices
in a calming voice for unself-conscious contentment?

What is this ZeroSoul content of contentment
to feel we are right
sentient full beings
here co-present
within eternal now relationships of compassion
affiliating on this Earth
in our co-passioning interdependent webs
of health co-operative
wealthy co-investment

Without mortal loss,
suffering;
Without unwanted walls between us
and them.

Why does emotional unintelligence
speak too loudly
intolerantly
of Earth-UnCentered constant concerns
of inhumane immortal overpowers
and toxic LoseHealth/LoseWealth
RightWing left-brain dominant choices
in cacophonous dissonant voices
claiming no rights to contentedly tolerate
only healthier multicultures
of win/win emotional intelligence?

The Public Health-Wealth Dissertation

What lies closest to godliness for you?

Cleanliness/purity,

Integrity,

Compassion,

Resilient health,

Wise Win/Win wealth

Other

 

Why?

Does your answer change if the question turns to:

What lies closest to Gaian EarthGoddess for you?

If so, why?

If not, why not?

 

These questions came up as I was looking for a dissertation topic for Euclid University’s PhD in Inter-Religious Dialogue and International Diplomacy.

On Euclid’s website we read something about what this is all about:

“Interfaith diplomacy is an important and new emerging field of research, notably in view of ongoing inter-religious [Win/Lose] conflict, mass migrations [not unrelated to climate change, and trending in that further unfortunate pathological Lose/Lose direction], and grave issues related to radicalization [and concomitant economic and political concerns of growing belief and behavior and investment in apartheid, monoculturing silos, self-ghettoization, and viral tendencies toward Lose/Lose rabid climates of disintegrating terrorism, dualistic nature v spirit theologies, degeneratively entropic absence of robust cooperativity—lack of Win/Win systems thinking, integral multicultural dialogue and design—fading polycultures of democratically liberal love and economic/ecological health development through Win/Win creolization rather than more Business As Usual Western commodification of sacred, integral, holonic, nonsectarian, interdependent Earth].”

Then we can read something about why:

“Euclid’s specialized PhD degree focuses on interfaith practice and the actual application of interfaith skills in the [healthy] community [of non-sectarian, non-violent, non-partisan, non-nationalistic, non-sadistic, non-masochistic cooperative democratic discernment of Win/Win integral responses to outstanding issues seeking effluent equity and affluent interdependent systems, ecosystems, egosystems, governing systems, co-governing systems, eco-governing green systems,…], rather than the advancement of [merely] academic [left-brain dominant, commodified, Win/Lose default Either/Or competitive contradicting and dividing what God may have originally kept Both/And bilaterally bicamerally and binomially cause/effect, Alpha/Omega, Left/Right, Yang/Yin, patriarchal Either/Or and matriarchal Both/And perpetual-flowing matriarchally sacred nutritional integrity kept together for further healthy-wealth Win/Win discernment, discussion, dialogue, non-sectarian diplomacy] knowledge for it’s own sake.”

“Our program places a special [Win/Win] emphasis on contemporary Islam, Muslim-Christian [Abrahamic patriarchal cooperatively co-investing in fertile multicultural and ecologically healthy wealthy self/other-optimizing integrity, authority, responsibility, resilient Win/Win stewardship of power, light, life, economic Zero-interest smart green co-investment,…] dialogue, modern [liberally cooperative green-conservation of left/right, north/south, west/east co-dominant experiential] secularism, as well as de-radicalization [non-violent communication through compassionately resilient cooperative health-supporting words and trusted Golden Rule Win/Win deeds] and [ecologically ecclesiological knowledgeable and wise mutual-polyculturing] mediation.”

 

So, when I was invited to present a dissertation topic, I suggested:

The technology and philosophy of dialogue, diplomacy, conflict resolution, restorative justice, peace-making, non-violence, WinWin solutions, derive from philosophy, theology, natural and social sciences, and perhaps even abstract psychotherapeutic geometrics.  Rather than asking the more classical academic questions of how are these better and worse than each other, how do they differ, perhaps it is more fruitful to diversely and interdependently compare these health/pathology paradigms to search for their most resilient therapeutic WinWin communion and wealthy holonic promise?

Using a combination of Systems and Game Theory, I have a dissertation interest in looking more closely,

with a local interfaith community of ecological/theological dialogue, at any two or three of the following sources to see how their analogical mapping (Gregory Bateson, Ecology of Mind) might combine to inform a robust nonsectarian healing process for Earth’s wounded economic and political climates, natural and spiritual, secular and sacred, and how we might enter into a secular/sacred non-sectarian health-and-climate-care implementation cooperative mission for healing our local Earth, wounded plants, and EgoLeft/EcoRight

David Holmgren            permaculture design (integral)         multicultural health outcomes

Robert Norton                       communications theory                   enthymematic reiteration

To my surprise, this Win/Win cooperatively facilitated research proposal was rejected as not germane to the purposes and implementation focus of the Win/Win Inter-Religious Integrity Dialogue and Public Resilient Health Diplomacy PhD program, with stipulated intent to remain responsive to a United Nations cooperative Win/Win Earth Health Service training project to derive the most resilient terms possible for global co-investment.

So, instead of facilitating a local inter-religious and international dialogue, which would be expensive, sacrifice some trees, burn some gas and oil, it occurred to me to invite you into an even larger community of dialogue about what are our highest public and private health priorities for multiculturally cooperative people who understand godliness and/or Gaian/Marian EarthGoddessness as at least sufficient power to intend enough cooperative integrity for generating light out of nondual darkness.

Which, on living Earth, has produced some astounding evolution of compassionate grace history, and some other, darker herstoric repressions.  Even so, we each seek to facilitate and mentor polycultural resilience, polyphonic resonance, polynomial Win/Win communication, polypathic ways, and ego/eco-centering means toward divinely-humane healthy truth of wealth-abundant beauty. Or so it seems to me, which is why my answer is:

To co-facilitate good faith integrity of Earth’s vast health/wealth potential.
