Complicated Relationships

In complicated relationships,
and complex story telling
with regeneratively developing
and degeneratively undeveloping characters,

Personalities with powers to inflict harmful
punishment,
and healing
forgiveness,

Shunning
and harassment
or compassion,

Neglect
and abuse
or solidarity,

Who switches from and
to positive
to negative,
and back again
first
and last

Depends on where and when we choose to begin
our journey down selective memory’s avenue
of speaking and reacting
and not listening and responding,

But this primary choice
of Alpha and Omega point
is further influenced
by what we choose to notice
and assume is perceivable,
malleable,
alive

And what we fail to remember
to reconnect
to return again
to restore
to omit
to set aside
to assume

Among all our political and economic
civil and uncivil history of individual relationships
and family systems
and community networks
and EarthTribe polycultural species
come and gone before
on Earth’s round revolving stages
of unfolding
unraveling

And refolding
reforming
redeeming
rewinding
regenerating
restoring historic healthy relationships.

Empowering CoInvestments

Feeling economically extorted
is like recognizing our collective guilt
regarding past ecological extractions.

Cooperative motives
for proactive economic health investments
are harbingers
re-enactments
co-investments in positive
resiliently democratic
ecotherapeutic communication outcomes.

Economic justice
of a particular exchange,
of any one transactional communication event,
depends not only on the mutually invested/divested
short-term
and decontextualized
un-historicized local outcome

But also,
restorative economic justice
moving toward global cooperative communication peace
depends on mutually non-competitive
non-violent
co-passionate investment intent
for long-term
historically re-contextualized
ecological health benefits
to our global regifting,
gratitude enlightened,
politically empowering economy.

Extortion is reverse face
of pro-active giving
gifting
gracing
forgiveness
liberating redemption
from isolation,
non-communication,
excommunication,
marginalization,
criminalization,
starvation,
extraction from our social capital economy
predicting more global extortion
from our communally wealthy
ecologically healthy
relationship patterns.

So too,
extraction is reverse face
of reinvestment,
natural regeneration,
spirited sacred redemption
of co-investors hearts,
co-messianic hands and feet,
co-bodhisattva roots
fed by historically multicultural,
economically wealthy voices
and ecological healthy choices

For deeply empowering
enlightening absence of distorted
competitive
extractive
kleptocratic extortion

Of historically empowered Haves
from monoculturally disempowered,
poor in spirited, HaveNot

A fair share of healthy communication potential
for re-investing
in cooperatively empowering
compassionate co-investments

And not so much feeling forced
into economic extortion
furthering ecologically unhealthy extraction
from resiliently wealthy co-investments
in future health restorative
regenerations.

Life Feels Easier

It feels easier.
That’s why,
or so she believes.

Why she associates death
and climate pathology
with fear of her ego’s eco-mortality
and vaguely remembered anxieties about enslavement;
living death to human identity,
if not all commodified Natures.

Yet, it feels harder
to associate death
with indentured spiritual servitude,
often confused with fundamentalist dogma,
evangelical demagoguery,
politically disempowering religiosity,

Assiduously associated with patriarchal colonization
and straight western white male privilege,
and left brain violently indenturing commodification,
renting human Ego minds
with individualized bodies,
uniquely felt spirits
with thoughtful,
living mortal natures

Associating freedom
with human potential
and at least divine acquiescence,
if not gratitude.

Designing Healthier Democracy

Green democratic design,
like PermaCulture Design,
intends polyculturally resilient nutritional outcomes
for global, as for local, interdependently co-attracted ecosystems
composed, in designing part,
of social-ego communication networks.

Nutritionally attractive outcomes,
and not so much toxically extractive capital incomes,
are naturally and spiritually favored by democratic energy co-investors,

Including,
more recently,
AgriCulture’s capital investments in extracting nutrients without replacing,
harvesting forests without planting,
maintaining,
mutually nourishing multicultural saplings,
now sadly recognized as monocultural
unattractive Business As Usual
leading to toxic fading
fragmenting
global and local sustainable extended energy-family incomes
shrinking future Earth resilience
to feed corporate short-term strangling wealth,
capital-infested.

PermaCulture Design,
like democratic energy of attraction redesigns
for resolving kleptocratic energy of extraction undesign,
like nondualistic indigenous wisdom of a win/win GoldenRule child,
may distinguish,
but would never divide,
as capitalism does,
organic forest health
from permacultural everybody wealth.
