Cherishing DiaLogical Earth

More Yang/Yin Conversation with Adam Robersmith

Robersmith (p. 47, Justice On Earth):
“…science is showing us something important:
We are affecting our climate
and ecosystems
in ways that are detrimental to life
on the planet
and to how we live.”

Yin: Science and conscience
are discovering and uncovering important health wealth:
We are degenerating our climate
and formerly more robust ecosystems
in ways that are detrimental to life
and love
and win/win restorative justice
on Earth
and to how we could more non-violently live
cooperatively together
rather than competitively apart.

Robersmith: “We know that we need to change how we act as a species.”

Yin: We feel how we are transforming
how we do not win/win act
as if we cared about our own extended future
as a healthy and wealthy species.

Robersmith: “We should have changed as a nation long ago,
yet we have not.”

Yin: We could restore global justice as one EarthTribe identity,
yet LeftBrain Straight White Male Dominance
has not gone in this Both/And non-violent direction,
heuristically tolerating Either/Or
Ego v Eco
HealthySelf v WealthyOther
Left v Right intolerance.

Robersmith: “Scientists are offering research that has been confirmed repeatedly
and making predictions that should frighten us all into behaving
differently,
yet change is not coming as many of us would expect.”

Yin: Consciousness invites cooperative research
confirmed by redundant thoughts and feelings
predicting what will frighten and anger
and what could heal and ease us all
into inviting win/win cooperative eco-political ownership,
non-violently resilient.

Robersmith: “Research shows that our acts disproportionately affect the poor
and oppressed
all over the world,
yet we continue to use harmful technologies and resources.”

Yin: Consciousness bicamerally feels and knows
our win/lose left-brain dominant acts
disproportionately and adversely influence poor
and oppressed
and ourselves
non-elite populations all over Earth,
yet we continue to use toxic energy,
fuel,
violent technologies
and non-repurposed natural/spiritual resources.

Robersmith: “It seems that simply presenting information is not enough.”

Yin: It seems that presenting terrifying
run-and-throw-away
indigestible shame and blame information
is not enough.

Robersmith: “Scaring people with doomsday scenarios–
even if they are based on our very best knowledge–
does not produce sufficient change.”

Yin: Scaring ourselves with lose/lose doomsday scenarios–
even though rooted in our best democratic healthcare knowledge–
does not produce resonant
win/win gratitude attitude.

Robersmith: “In fact,
it often creates resistance.”

Yin: In cooperatively felt fact,
we create self-isolating
emotional shame and blame resistance
to violent messages of despair.

Robersmith: “Making pollution
and waste
and overconsumption sinful
or shameful
has some effect,
but not enough to change how we behave
as a culture
or make policy as a nation.”

Yin: Framing pollution
and waste
and disassociating from win-now/lose-future overconsumption
as anthropocentrically sinful
and elitist shameful
has some eco-political power,
but not sufficient to restore health
to how we behave as a communal
covenanted
sacred polyculture
or make policy as a state,
a locality,
a municipality,
an extended family.

Robersmith: “While these debates continue,
people around the world suffer
with changes they are unable to ameliorate,
and those with the least power
and resources
suffer most of all.”

While win/win-seeking dialogue does not continue,
EarthTribes competitively suffer
with isolating military-industrialized capitalism as usual
we are unable to heal,
and those people
and species
and regenerative macro-living systems with the least ego-resonant power
and privately-held resilience
and natural/spiritual
health/wealth resources
suffer most dualistically divided of all.

Social Justice Does Not Kill Nations

I heard from PrimeAryan DT
that socialism kills nations.

I thought it was fascist totalitarianism
that killed nations,
the lack of democratic social intelligence,
social investment,
non-violent communication,
restorative,
therapeutic
win/win social justice.

My grandparents,
at least on my mother’s side,
who seemed ancient and fragile to me,
often opined,
“When you lose your health,
you love everything.”

I don’t know if they literally meant everything:
your faith,
your active hope,
your love,
your integrity,
your egocentric voice,
your hate,
fear,
anger,
obsessive-compulsive wealth,
despair,
cynicism,
narcissism,
xenophobia.

Probably they meant only everything good,
all things social,
Beauty fading into inconsequential,
Truth into lack of significant meaning,
Life into absence of future purpose.

I was young and apparently immortal
and could not hear their wiser warning.

Now older,
I find I have little more to add
to health’s imperative
standard for resilient Wealth:

much older and more integral,
historically and multiculturally deeper
than money,
or even humanity;

older, even, than verbal communication
about healthy v pathological social-system experience.

So, why isn’t this same observation
first on the list of every political party’s platform,
every faith community’s regenerative mission statement?

If we lose our democratic win/win social health,
we’ve lost our greatest wealth.

If we optimize
our actively co-invested trust
in global interdependent health,
we regain our most resilient dreams
of cooperatively-owned wealth,
communal peace
served up with personal integrity.

“Make America Great Again”
whether triumphantly declared as “mission accomplished”
or somewhat more humble,
errs in dreaming way too small

When we could more robustly
courageously
compassionately choose
“Make Earth Healthy Again”

Which would, of course,
also make America wealthy
in all the democratic social positives,
and none of the aristocratic anti-social negatives

again?

I guess sometimes healthy restorative justice
is more like exploratory win/win polycultural justice,
more pro-social green peace meadows
than elitist
monocultural
grab and crab grass.

A Healing Society

When directors of social justice,
whether parents
or teachers
or community leaders
or religious leaders
and eco-political livers,
lovers address EarthJustice
by recommending immersion experiences,
journeys to commune with hurting populations
and species
and systems,

We provide a better justice service
by remembering that most vulnerable populations
suffering from diverse systemic subclimate pathologies
are not human societies
associations
communities
families
individuals eco-political.

If social justice advocates
have any doubts about this,
please consider communing with trees,
producers of renewable oxygen,
useful for the soul function of breathing;
conversing with topsoil nurturers
helpful for recycling nutrition;
consider an immersion experience with boundary swamps
and mouths of rivers
quenching salty ocean thirst,
harboring birds
immersing with tasty insects
rodents
snakes.

In this face of Earth Not-Justice,
we find outdoor life
a long immersion journey
from infant crawling on picnic blankets
to ocean front death shrouds,
tombs within meadows and gardens,
woodlands fueled by radiant sunlight,
fertilized by fully committed bodies
of fibers
fleas
fish
fowl
fungi
frogs
foliage.

Where
and when
and how
could such unfinished immersion end
with EarthJustice?

Although not sure,
not whole,
perhaps this journey only begins
and ends
with outdoor people,
longing to return to solidarity
with trees
and tides
and tale-winds.

Restoring EarthJustice

I have been reading Jennifer Nordstrom’s contributions
to the resilient Green Sanctuary,
a collaboratory production
giving birth to “Justice On Earth”–
which seems quite different than Donald Trump’s
view of how to rebirth America’s former patriarchal colonizing greatness,
yet again.

“Justice On Earth”
is more about restoring justice on Earth,
improving our ego-and eco-therapeutic healthy form
and flow,
multiculturally ubiquitous principles of energy democracy
and yet unitarian ecofeminist co-invested
in deep and wide-learning Golden win/win Rules,
truths of intersectional
interdependent
living organic webs
optimizing health/wealth nondualistic co-arising outcomes
Left-universal egalitarian rights
speaking and listening nicely with
Right-unitarian integrity responsibilities.

Anyway,
I’ve had trouble getting through page three.

I did sail through the five page Introduction
broght with polyculturing communication wisdom
by Manish
Mishra-
Marzetti,
who sounds like patriarchal poetry,
or maybe a folk song.

Jennifer Nordstrom’s pace
is more feminist race
toward interdependent therapeutic EarthWombs
of water-bearing green sanctuary rivers
for a more first through last gasp life.

She wants her readers to know
we are about to be flanked
by Unitarian Right-hemisphere
and Universalist Left-hemisphere dominant
writers articulating theoretical abstractions
with multicultural creolizing intersectionality,
as taught, more and less integrally,
by Kimberle Williams Crenshaw.

Intersectionality
is to interdependent open-systemic webs of organic life experience
as environmental green-restorative sanctuary justice
invites each of us to conjoin in freedom
of multicultural integrity
compassion,
uniting explicitly sacred and secular
spiritual and natural
metaphysical research
as perennially pursuied
by our 0-soul Holonic CoRedemptive Spirit.

Green Sanctuary peace
can universally broaden Left-hemisphere Yang dominance
and deepen Right-hemisphere yin resonance
polyphonic theory, more left-languaged polypathic communication,
to produce polycultural outcome best practice stories,
more of a right-hemisphere song and dance
intersectional-nutritional therapeutic communication
of complex re-creative healthy feeling-thoughts
in-between
both/and reflectively heuristic
left/right reiterative dialogue,

Articulating Win/Win therapeutic prejudice,
bias for attachment,
against detachment,
for co-gravitation,
interdependent wealth
co-arising dipolar healthy climate transubstantiations,
interdependent power webs of intersectional
revolutionary
2020 ecological-left and theological-right
out ecofeminist bright
light
holistic
accountable
and polypathically connected justice therapy theories.

While “Justice On Earth”
is not filled with Injustice Against Earth stories,
business as win/lose capital-hoarding horrifying legends,
we do visit the history of Green Sanctuary resilient peace
dialogically co-arising
universalYang-unitarianYin systematic energy democracy
of Earth-regenerative Trust,
transubstantiating feeling with thought,
intersectional self-other consciousness,
Integral paradigmatic Ways,
Paths,
Polypaths
toward further experiential-sensory co-atttachment,
CoPresent neural pathway structures
supporting ReCreative Theology/Ecology Analogues.

In which Justice on Earth
is most resiliently measured
in deep powers of cooperatively-held integrity,

Which, again,
feels quite different than the new AntiRepublic
of Trumpian designs
against health/wealth climate greatness.

Developing Healthier Systems

System integrity can grow more deeply resonant
only as diversity grows more widely interdependent.

Diversely rich integrity
longs to universally emerge
unitarian yin-inclusive
and not uniformly yang-dominant,
exclusive
privileged
supremely kleptocratic.

An economic and ecological reason
Win/Lose capital wealth-accumulation values
trend toward historically WesternWhite male racist privileged mono-structures
is because we do not, instead,
cooperatively co-invest time
and energy
and capital
in diversely interdependent integrity;
reconnecting universal yang wealth values
with unitarian interdependent health-norms.

So, anti-racist multicultural ecosystems
are those fully invested
in pro-active historical culture-deepening
and diversely widening
integrity
rather than defensive monocultural rabidity.

Racial justice seeks creolizing metamorphosis,
and not colonizing unilateral supremacy,
as does environmental justice.

Both are health-trending
when cooperatively restoring therapeutic EarthJustice
with pulling together Win/Win integrity,
and not Win/Lose pushed apart disintegration
of bio-
and geo-systemic diversity.
