Enrichment

What opposes enlightenment?

Endarkenment?
You know, like dusk,
evening,
end of a day
through end of time
on living Earth.

What opposes empowerment?

Disempowerment.

What might oppose Earth’s enlightenment
and/or empowerment?

For me
or throughout all multiculturing history?

Possibly both?

I see ego darkness,
depression,
fecklessness?
inability to cause
and/or perpetuate health,
safety,
individual powerlessness.

Do disease
and insecurity
and lack of effective power
feel like ways of experiencing poverty,
absence of healthy robust choice
for you,
as seems to be true of my experience?

Yes,
but poverty does not feel like a synonym
for dark feelings
or disempowerment.

Poverty, like racism,
feels more political,
economic,
more ecosystemic.

What is the opposite of ecosystemic enlightenment
and/or empowerment?

Ego isolation,
unsystemic pathological darkness
and/or disempowerment,
disease,
nonemployment,
absence of meaning or purpose,
economic depression,
recession,
political suppression,
dissociative sublimation,
narcissistic idolatry,
monoculturing rage,
violent zero-sum win/lose capitalism,
religious-cultural apartheid,
ecopolitical suicide,
globally generic genocide,
climate exhaustion,
ego-autonomous annihilation

Do these seem to oppose global
and individual
and local enrichment
for you?
as they do for me.

Perhaps what opposes positive multilateral energy
is always some unilateral form,
political
personal
familial
social
psychological
neurological
theological
ecological
economic
cultural
religious,
of impoverishing experience.

Love’s Constant Complexity

Interesting
that Christian theologians
have traditionally agreed
God is unchanging

Because steadfast in love,
loyal in omnipresence,
faithful to omnipotent powers,
all with regenerative intent.

Yet Eastern philosophers
look at these same healthy
safe
empowering traits of Earth’s complex
cooperative
regenerate nature,
and see,
and/or hear,
organically sense,
this universal enlightenment
unveils a metaphysical reality
of sacredly relentless Change.

God is as unchanging
as transient thoughts
and feelings of complex compassion,
responding to Nature’s strength
through flexibility,
unconstant evolution
through constant revolutions of Earth
and all Her interdependent Tribes,
Forms,
Functions,
Flow.

Western patriarchal
capitalistic concern
about a changing God of love
and retributive justice
and unEarthly peace
in a rapturous Heavenly future
may include issues of confusion,
miscommunication
between Nature’s complex cooperative Relationality,
and secular Theories of Relativity.

If everything is relative
to everything else,
then morality,
health,
safety of unchanging natural
and spiritual principles
become shifty,
unreliable,
unpredictable,
potentially dissonant,
evil,
degenerative,
pathological,
dissociative,
terrifying,
terrible
more than terrifically co-relational,
cooperative,
loving,
uniting through mutual flexibility
more than uniform
through unchanging orthodoxy.

But, Eastern nondualistic theory
is rooted in multicultural nonviolent experience
of fluid Relationality,
compassionate cooperativity
of constant win/win healthy natural change
which does not suggest nihilistic chaos
of space v time
or mass v energy

Instead,
constant nuanced regenerative relationship
of time equals space-cubed proportionality,

Zero polyphonic energy
regenerating One
polypathic co-relational Universe

Naturally within
and spiritually surrounding
Earth’s constant/correlative
enlightening co-empowerment.

Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
pseudo-science,
nondual
nonviolent
inscrutable
paradoxical
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
analogy,
theological ecology.

Polynomials,
western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
free,
liberated,
communal saints
and divided sinners.

Permacultural Grace

I wonder what it means
we are a multicultural species
still capable of waging war,
employing ballistic terrorists,
investing in capitalism’s ruthless game
of surgical monopoly
to become patriarchs of bloodied mountains,

This feels related,
perhaps co-arising,
with inability to distinguish
an ecology of natural grace
from an efficient economy of spiritual just rewards,

Ego’s self-righteous returns
for prudent win/lose strategic investment
in owning Earth,
pieces of the property pie,
and renting human secularized resources
by the mundane weekday hour,
or contractual time-clock year

Leaving behind jubilee years
hopes and tears
and sabbaths
for those naturally deprived
and spiritually poor;
meat to feed future real-world war machines.

Victories and defeats in war,
terror,
shouting-matches,
strategic aggression against maligned characters,
colonizing predation,
political and religious monopolization
of win/lose investments
in overpowering persuasion–
These can all be earned,
but not graced.

Love,
life,
health,
natural/spiritual hybrid wealth,
awe,
compassion,
gratitude,
kindness,
mercy,
cooperativity,
synergy,
regenerativity,
integrity,
restoration,
resonance,
healing,
co-redemption,
communion–
These are signs and wonders,
powers and co-arising principalities
of wondrous grace,
and cannot be earned
or reductively unlearned.

What could be evolving purpose
in outrageously degenerative wars,
deliberate intent to terrorize
and counter-terrorize,
hate,
oscillating cycles of anger and fear,
evil humors
and cynical financial investments
against each sacred Other,
against Earth’s habitual health?

What could be revolving meaning
in ecosystemic wealth
of co-passionate powers,
religions of polycultural kindness,
multicultures of cooperative integrity,
Earth’s sacred economies
of permaculturing grace?

Trump’s Intake Interview

Hello,
you’ve reached the EcoTherapist Cooperative.
How can we help you
without bringing harm to Others?

That’s a question I’ve never thought about.
I’m calling for the National Republican Party.
We would like to hire an EcoTherapist
for a consultation
during the 2020 Republican Convention.

How did you hear about us?

I’m not sure.
I’m required to tell you
this request does not come from the White House,
where America is already great again.

So, I’m at least equally DarkState
about whether we are an apparent match
for your internal and external health objectives.
We could probably offer a free intake assessment.

How long will that take
and when is your earliest availability?

For the Republican National Leadership,
our intake process might feel like a life sentence
of self-judgment.
I could facilitate a cooperative assessment
transparently
vulnerably
curiously
integrally
holistically
synergetically
and immediately,
whenever your event organizer
is ready.

Oh I’m not sure we have THAT long.
Impatience to get on with
Making America Extract and Exploit Again
seems like our cultural norm around here,
especially in Business Party Convention Time,
which is sort of all the 24/7
eternal enterprising time
of busyness
restlessness,
longing for some healthy ecotherapy.

So let’s start,
get as far as we can,
and then come up with a date and time
and invitation list
for conventional continuance
and/or unconventional discontinuance
of eco-terrorism’s patriarchal
StraightWhiteMale privileged
Western left hemisphere dominant
degenerative
monocultural miseducation
School of Business As Usual.

I may need to bring someone else into this call
but let’s start
and I’ll take this as far as I can
with my fake security clearance.

That’s fine.
So, what are your ecotherapeutic goals
for the Republican Party?

I wasn’t aware that would be a prerequisite requirement
for the Cooperative’s engagement.

Are you perhaps noticing
that your ecotherapeutic platform
for future action
is currently blank,
as rooted in past lack of investment?

Yes, which is why the Convention Organizer
needs an EcoTherapeutic Developer
to facilitate a platform planning session
during our Convention.

What are your most significant multicultural health concerns
about your internal
and external properties?
landscapes?
cultures?
climates?

Are we talking national
and international real estate interests?
Or personal wealth?

Yes, both internal
and external health/pathology landscapes.
What are your regenerative ecotherapeutic concerns
and your degenerative ego-pathology issues?

Oh, that question is WAY above my pay grade
and security clearance!

No, actually the question is meant to be democratically accessible.
As ubiquitous as the U.S. census,
but I can see where the Republican National Party’s response
to this first cooperative question
might need to be appropriately redirected.
Do you want to bring someone else in right now
or schedule for future intake?

Would you mind holding for a couple minutes?

Our time investment is your health-wealthy time.
We’re here,
with this multicultural health question,
at least until the Rapture
or the degenerative death of all positive energy systems
on and within planet Earth,
depending on your theological
ecological paradigm of choice.

Wow!
I’m not sure this will work
but let me see if Donald
might not duck this question.
…………………………………..

Yes, hello,
this is your President Donald Trump.
I understand you want to thank me for your check.

No, Mr. President,
you have asked the EcoTherapist Cooperative
to plan a platform development session
at your Convention.
I have some questions
to see if this is a good fit for us;
Starting with,
What are your national
and international,
local and global healthy environment goals?
And, how are these informed by your personal
internal therapeutic landscape concerns?

Oh, I see,
Like who am I afraid to shake hands with
and who don’t I want in the same room
to breathe against each other?

I’m concerned that might be a rather long list.
Perhaps it would be an easier use of our time
if you could think of who you would like
to multiculturally shake hands with
and who you would most enjoy
sharing healthy life space with,
breathing compassionately together
rather than degeneratively against.

Could you give me an example?
I’m coming up with nothing.

Maybe you would enjoy greeting
and gratefully conversing with
a Buddhist zen gardener
about the ego-recentering LeftHemisphere
and eco-systemic RightHemisphere
effects of breathing
as economically
and politically healthy conversing
with nearby resilient-wealthy trees.

And how would that make America great again?

Exactly,
that is a question
the EcoTherapist Cooperative
might help your Republican National Leaders
ask of each other
for restoring Earth Justice,
which, yes,
would also make America great again.

OK. Good.
Let’s set it up.
Did you get your check yet?
You know, don’t tell anyone,
but getting my signature on there
was my pre-election marketing idea.
Have you read my book?

The one where you recommend
Have Fun!
regardless of at whoever’s expense?
regardless of how win/lose competitive?
regardless of how anti-ecotherapeutic?
Yes, I find it helpful
for remembering what not to do
to achieve
and conserve healthy wealth well-being,
safety,
and social communication significance,
both RightHemisphere resonant
and LeftHemisphere resilient.

Good; you read it.
Did you buy it full price retail
or get it out of the library,
I wonder.
Anyway, are you having fun yet?
with that check I sent you.
Don’t forget to vote
if we ever have an election.
I’m not sure we really need one right 20/20 now,
with the lamestream media
and those radical socialist immigrants
trying to get in
and take all our StraightWhiteMale jobs
and the deep leftist anti-intelligence State
and…

Hopefully, Not To Be Continued

Revolutionary Earth Balance

“I too dance the rhythm of this moving world.”
Rumi

Ego too dances DNA revolving
spiraling rhythms
patterns
holistic silence
particular tones,

Confluent and dissonant,
comparative and contrasting,
cooperative and competitive,
economic and political
social and psychological

Empowering peaceful balance
within this moving
living
ecologically connected Earth
touched by Day and Night

Ego-centering co-invested light
dancing local
balancing
revolving global
Eco-systemic compassion might.

I too balance
tip-pointed rhythms
within and upon
this moving
revolutionary Earth Day.
