Performance Grade Meditations

In my ecotherapeutic world view,
right brain and left stratosphere friendly,

I know two interdependent types of people,
Mushy Meditators
and Prickly Performers.

These two, together, help all of us win,
democratically and multiculturally,
when Performers
listen to
and read more compassion remediating Meditators’
performance medications.

And,
frankly, it would also help shape up
and encourage peak experience resilience
if Meditators
would Perform with more cooperative co-investments
and ecopolitically win/win compassion
where dutiful Truth actively celebrates joyful Beauty
when neuro-sensory bliss
explodes into throbbing wonder
and climaxing awe.

We need,
(or is it just me?)
compassionate integrity
more LeftBrain high
and deep learning RightBrain bicameral
transregenerative win/win joy communion,
locally
and nationally
and globally not stern PatriarchalCapitalist competitions

Better resilient resistance
through ecofeminist
multicultural LeftBrain OverPerformance Cancellers

Counselors for patriarchal Performance addiction
cancelling further capital competitive investment
in dark rumination
rather than win/win mushy Meditation
medication

Inducing my ecotherapeutic world view,
right brain and left ecopolitically friendly.

Catholic Daze

I recall
from Catholic seminal
seminary daze,

Frocked monastic gaze
vowed nerve-systemic chastity,
self-sacrificing poverty,
political obedience
to a Great StraightMale Master
of God’s paradise reclusive House
filled with sacred humane
Men’s Room Only vocations.

Yet I experienced these three
Green Commons commitments
in reverse Taoistic
NonZeroistic chronology
of sacramental EarthCentric interest:

Without fully embodying
sensory-neural obedience,
trust
good faith
good humor
LeftBrain healthy secular Truth
as also
RightBrain safe sacred Beauty,

Then poverty of spirit
is a bitter
exploitive pill to
MonoCapitalistically swallow
before too many competitive weeks
and months pass anxiously by

Without neuro-sensory chastity
invoking my healthy regenerative compassion
only when informed
by universal climax wealth experience
of sacred
nature-spirited poverty
of co-invested
co-infesting
cooperatively creolizing Light
and Power;

Theologically ecological poverty
of StraightWhiteMale divinely-endowed
anthrosupremacism
could best be re-invited
into WinWin cooperative co-investment
when transparently vulnerable
through healthy matriarchal prime Attachment,

Further reinforced
by post-pubescent
sensory-neural sacred climax
worship
and praise,
silent awe
and verbalized
and verbalizing
and reverberating wonder,

Obedience to Taoistically balanced
ego-patrilinear LeftBrain verbalized
through nonviolently, multiculturally felt
wants,
healthy co-invested thrusts,
trusts,
truths

As also EcoWomanist
RightBrain sacred felt silence,
integral reception

Green cooperative unitarian communion

Deep listening for empowering
sacred information
inhalation

Also enlightening
dusty secularized disobedience,
pathological need for win/lose subservience,
posturing as win/win obedient
Earth Healers,

Regenerative repairers
of active nonzeroistic healthy ego-hope
from EcoMotherly masters
vowing past
and present
and future
green/blue EarthWealth

PostPandemic HealthWealth

One year ago
our hearts and minds
were socially
and politically
and economically divided
about universal health care
as a restorative prerequisite
to growing unitarian wealth
of EarthJustice compassion.

Today
regardless of where we may find
identify
celebrate our active hope
for growing a resilient multiculturing community

We feel no clear post-viral divide
between health care
and EarthTribe’s social solidarity,

No great non-transitional
separation of secular caste
of sacred calling
between social solidarity
and indigenous integrity
of interdependent healthcare;

No vast dualistic shadow
between First Egalitarian HealthPrinciples
and Seventh Interdependent WealthSystems.

Health care,
like social caring,
like politically empowering compassion,
like economically enlightened co-investment,
can never again return
to a pre-global pandemic view
of healthy democratic energy
as a strictly private
commodified
anthroprivileged self-investment
by win/lose might of fight
makes dominating right
singularly bright.

Whole Open EarthClimate Care
Ego/EcoSystems
predict healthy resilient babies
and a renewing win/win
bicamerally empowering
enlightening species

Restored from a starving
isolating angry
and fearfully monoculturing
disregard for polyculturing

PostPandemically restorying
Her ravenous
and cancerously conflicted womb

Sacred Falling Stars

Once upon a time a gymnast teacher told a girl,
and all her classmates,
to gather around the trampoline
to spot the student currently bouncing on the trampoline.
They circled around
to volunteer a ring of imperfect
but positively intended
desire to help,
should the witnessed bounce go horribly
accidentally wrong.

This same request for a spot was one familiar to this same girl,
and these same classmates,
when they were bench pressing at the gym,
not because the teacher asked,
but because the fully abled weight lifter asked
if they could work out together,
and spotting each other during the bench press
was simply Standard ReAssurance Operating Procedure
for humane care givers
and receivers.

Anyway,
the unfortunate girl bounced sideways when one of her knees gave out
and she came flying directly toward our spotter
who did her very best to get out of the way,
to go to the other side of the street,
to walk on by,
to pull out her cellphone camera
to get it all delightfully recorded
for the more proper punishing authorities.

The teacher was
(1) concerned for the wounded
splattered girl on the matted
and yet still not inviting
floor, and
(2) furious with the spotter turned distant recorder.
When the classroom administrator asked, “Why?”
the girl said her father told her not touch others
at risk of injury
on their way down
because she might be liable for post-touch injury
and, besides, it’s not like she’s going to be financially rewarded
should she be successful with mitigating harm,
so, there is no “on the other hand” potential reward system
worth mentioning.

It’s the same reason she,
and those witnesses huddled
in a supportive constellation around her,
pulled out her star-gazing
witnessing camera
while George Floyd struggled to “I can’t breathe” communicate
while being deliberately suffocated
to overpower him when he was already down,
and about to blink
wink out.

The liability attorneys
and corporate accident insurance actuaries
get paid bigger bucks to tell front-line administrators
why touch
and help
and prescriptions
and medical procedures should be denied,
because the risk of trying to care for each other,
when it just isn’t enough,
is a last touch liability.
And, on the other hand,
there is no reward for the person,
the agency,
the health care giving and receiving
reassurance win/win anticipating
corporate system
doesn’t economically
cooperatively exist.
Compassion doesn’t pay–
it just regenerates more health care risk
and personal star witness liability.

Care giving,
especially for those who have already sustained transparent
vulnerable losses
in their compromised physical and mental health lives,
is responsible for first and last caring touch of hand and voice
every day,
every custody minute of care,
whether standing behind,
in best-effort solidarity,
or standing nearby,
spotting each win/win cooperative constellation,
reassuring wounded OtherStars.

Care giving opportunities,
health care spotting for each other, pays poorly,
when compared with what star corporate liability insurance attorney
and accountants
use to buy second homes;
sometimes including financial bonuses
for successfully avoiding any realistic possibility of harm,
unnecessary financial loss.
Care giving with active compassion
bears a long patriarchal tradition of being feminist underpaid
to believe cameras up,
but hands and eyes down,
deflect,
stand back,
don’t get involved–
are not politically disempowering
run-away capitalist actions and inactions.

Potential financial risk for helping to prevent further harm,
for doing your win/win best,
for cooperatively investing in all sacred stars,
for health care compassion,
for nurturing at-risk humanity in the face of immediate injury,
wounds,
losses,
suffering,
especially falling risk to marginalized persons of color,
it doesn’t pay well to the left brain dominant
patriarchal corporate
win/lose zero-sum mind–
but really is what life is all about,
at its most invigorating compassionate best chance
of win/win solidarity success
to the right brain feminist
constellation of enlightening hearts.

Today Is Different

Today is assiduously
religiously different,
as I review our local RiverEast News.

Every week
Mike Thompson writes a solid Editorial
in a compelling voice.
I expect to only add
my hearty sacred
happy secular “Amen!”

Our nearly fearless Editor and Chief
calls for political “ACCOUNTABILITY!”
like so many others on bipolar Left through Right,

And those still hanging on
with battered nails
to quickly fading dipolar
in-between HAVE-NOT
anthrocultured primacy race
and HAVE
cash class
co-empathic consciousness
that renters and owners need each other
like borrowers and banks
yet feel as competitively apart
as victims and predators,
droning prey and patriarchal colonizers

Insurrectionists,
nihilistic HAVE-NOT anarchists
military industrialized
invade our sacred capitalistic space,
so now, I read,
“there needs to be
accountability.”

I do not disagree, BUT…
AND would you not agree
our shared future will be healthier,
and co-investing wealthier,
if predators claim their own responsibility
for exceeding civil and civic
democratically cooperative authority
through more slow-grown discernments

Rather than passionate placards
preferring hot
and sometimes armed
debate
drama
extraction
capture
imprisonment
enslavement
debacle
bacchanalia,
angry selfie Theater

Fueled by manufactured Bud
more than ancient cannabis buds.

Our angry Editor
lashes nationalistic Republicans out of town,
especially the transcendently unEarthly
Vice President Pence,
praying for “healing” and “unity,”
and not even close enough
for government work
invoking a sacred benediction
through end of term ACCOUNTABILITY!
of blind justice,
thus retributively more equitable
punishing non-mercy
served against irresponsible
angry words
and violently desecrating actions.

Interesting,
I also hear President Biden
passionately praying for “healing” and “unity”
Unity
Unity,
and more silent about punishing justice
held up to public scrutiny
of LeftBrain dominant, Accountability–
not so much RightBrain felt prominent,
CoResponsibility.

Retributive justice of Accountability
is for punishing
the autonomously guilty.

Restorative justice of CoResponsive
Responsibility
is for healing,
and resiliently lasting,
peaceful,
healthy interdependent unity

By divesting of autonomously unEarth-responsive
economic anthrocentric capital gains
and politically privileged responsibility
of patriarchal
capitalistic
military-industrialized
corporate empowered monoculturing supremacy,
anthro-irresponsible intent.

Why is it,
Mr. Editor,
I wonder wander
as I moondrift flow along,

Why is it more important
or realistic
or essential to punish
before moving on to heal:
to set apart and imprison,
to judge
and shame and blame,
before reconsidering unity
through faithful
multicultural dialogue?

This military-first preference
seems to reflect Chief RedCommander
inciting rhetoric
echoing Hitler’s strengths
of hate and violence
and deadening threat
of powerful justice
developing full-throttle
exclusively through our patriotic
overpowering position
of autocratic STRENGTH!

To hold the Alien EcOther
revengefully Accountable.

Actually,
as I dimly recall
my own unfortunate experiences with punishment
and healing warmth restoring healthier wealth
of personal political empowering responsibility,
nonviolent communication
includes inviting proactive practice
of compassionate therapy
through restorative justice,
pursuing multicultural pace
of EarthPeace,

More polytheistically matriarchal
than monoculturally
LeftBrain soulless solely Accountable
for missing opposite experience opportunities
more typically therapeutic
and conveniently,
even co-responsibly,
CoOperative Truths
building healthy democratic Trust.

I’m thinking I learn more powerfully
not from Strength, but uncapitalized weakness,
fluidity,
both/and nuance,
empowering eco-political responsibility
and disempowering ego-individual accountability,
publicized felony revenge
and misdemeanor scorn

Distract from wider experience
deeper Light
by exploring my own disconnected woundedness
evolving lonely feelings of win/lose mortal brokenness

Past failures in responsive civil commitment
to cooperatively hold
and cherish democratic sacred space
at home,
reading the weekly paper,
and WholeEarth abroad,

Rather than my boldest debates
to strongly compete in high risk
armed and violent communication confrontations,

Alarming punitive messages
using win/lose weapons of strong obfuscation,
which are irresponsible,
demanding that EcOthers be held apartheid Accountable
for lack of healthy healing,
cooperative unity,
co-governing skills for building
resiliently healing
trust-struggling
ongoing inclusive dialogue
relationships,

Religiously essential
to any healthy democratic
natural and/or spiritual experience,
constitutional
and/or familial,
anthro-centric
and/or eco-systemic health restoring,
globally political
and/or personal cooperative economics
of ecofeminist
green newLeft/ancientRight deal
co-responsible
resilient
and polypathically resonant
Ego/Earth co-investment

In a different
universally healing
unitarian tomorrow.

The Whole Truth

I wonder if it is even possible
for any one person
to tell the whole Truth,

While yet speaking nothing but the Truth,
defined and experienced to date,
so help me Gods and Goddesses,
mountains and rivers,
Earth’s systemic regenerative voices

The whole Truth
explicitly mentioning oppositional not truths
and further refining as yet
not experienced counter-realities
imagined appositional co-defining Truths
equivalent to undefining not
not double-binding
co-refining win/win Truth
bicamerally felt and thought

Which might be a possible way
to retell WholeEarth’s ecosystemic Truth,
but I imagine only S/he
could definitively reply
in Golden Rule
healthy democratic Truth.

I wonder if it is integrally possible
to speak and actively listen
for WholeEarth’s win/win
health wealthiest
resilient Truth

Co-arising vast ecosystemic Presence
and ego-holistic Humility,
especially about my autonomous capacity
to speak timeless WholeEarth Truth.

Gaia Steps Out

Of win/win delight

Gaia will step out
virginally tomorrow
when magically
and/or tragically invited

To step on out
without even Her inner ego

to think dipolar co-arising

Stepping into nonviolent dialogue

Stepping up and out
in defiant celebration
of Earth’s primal gift economy

restoring EarthLoyal salvation
of NonZero Holy Animated SoulPowers
fed and interfaith fueled

and GrandMother Moon’s ultra-nonviolent

Stepping into calming clouds
shading our green/blue yellowing sphere
with fading frost polarities
emerging brown drought dust spots
and slowly rising warming oceans
surfing up super-wet hurricanes
and windstorms

She steps on
in response to some safety question
about healing filling silence
when the only voices still available
are outside creature voices

Stepping into Gaian ancient narratives
of revolutionary light
sweeping aside dualdark bilateral feelings,
evolutionary progressive win/win process
for thriving ecopolitical wealth
of winds fertilizing warm waters

Gaia steps toward Heaven shining
on EarthEmpowering Justice,
ego/eco-systemic
bicameral Green/Blue/Red Peace

Stepping regeneratively win/win,
generatively win/lose,
degeneratively lose/lose

Gaia steps around
and over
and under today’s worst health pandemic
to invite tomorrow’s integral sacred promise
providing a safe healthy space
and future paradise time
when no bad thing
could possibly yet have already happened
except anxiety
about win/lose anxiety

Foreseeing an unforgiving
merciless Green Gaian Rage
against our super-redwinged

Yet, even so,

Progressive Health Intentions

The opposite of pain

An apposition of ease
