Healthy Bicameral Faith

What could be good
without growing healthy?

What is your faith community’s redemptive
and healing
empowering
and enlightening theology
and/or ecologically regenerative
communion
reunion
religion
reconnection
reweaving
restoring Earth’s healthy faith justice,
globally recommunicating peace,
greenest resilient compassion?

Whether your healthy good faith community
communication
communion-invested experience
is in a cathedral
or a town hall
or belief in a retributive court system
or daily loyalty to a military hierarchy
or a corporate industrial team
for extracting
and exploiting
Earth’s natural and sacred resources,

Invested by past regenerators
in healthy good faith ecosystems
and promised trust to future regenerations
of wealthy full-faith
humanely compassionate egos, recentering
bicameral
bilateral
binomially listening questions
for healthiest faith systems.

What is Earth’s healthy faith
empowering
and enlightening
intention?

From whence emerges
historically multi-generational
multicultural endowments
for regenerating cooperatively intelligent
and actively compassionate residents,
worshippers,
adorers,
global green patriots,
good healthy faithed citizens,
sacred communicants?

What is Earth’s experiential history
of human healthy faith?

From what healthy hearts
emerge strong theological experience
and eco-historical
multicultural
multigenerational
practical
mystical,
creative liberating processes
systemically natural/spiritual
bicameral,
bilateral,
binomial,
bisensual
ecological healthy faith
in compassionately
impassioned communication?

And where you live
and breathe
and healthy faith,

What was your favorite
good faith community’s empowering
enlightening mission:

When first locally established?

When originally emerging
as a social-cultural
economic-political
new faith practice,
movement
for empowering
and enlightening future communal
cooperatively co-invested generations?

And before patriarchal
capital-invested
left-brain dominant predation,
monoculturing
oppressive colonization,
How might pre-historic
nature/spirit nondualistic
locally enlightened minds
and empowered hearts
and compassioned root systemic
humane/divine EarthBodies
compare resilient strength
and resonant flow
with today’s local
and/or global
faith community theological experience
and ecological practice?

How will future empowering health care
and enlightening multicultural faith
in robust sensory wealth
become divine EarthJustice restorative
and/or ecologically-humanely
bilaterally
bicamerally
binomially
bisensory co-empathically
nurtured light,
natured power,
spirited compassion energy?

What could become multiculturally good faith
while growing wealthiest questions
concerning local
and celebrating global
compassionate health?

DisConnecting Dogmas

Our humane-empowering species,
steeped in regenetic history
of human nature connecting
disconnecting
reconnecting
preconnecting,

Has an unfortunate tendency,
especially in Abrahamic historical traditions,
to imagine that our own religious tradition
is not only free of historical-cultural adaptation
but also the one supremely right-wing Way
orthodox Truth
healthy Life.

And, further, guilty of inhumane hubris,
of condemning those outside our dogmatic Fold,
our LeftBrain dominant individualistic EgoFrame,
to lack of redemptive grace,
to after-life Hell,
to lack of true communion
within today’s Earth
holonic
regenerative Spirit
of inclusive win/win recommunication,
empowerment
and enlightenment,
sacred awe
and secular wonder.

Due to this patriarchally influenced
left-brain privileged assumption,
HumanNature lives disconnected
in a win/lose racing economy,
determined by our orthodox religious
and other monoculturally privileged associations
and dues,
catechisms
and formative scriptural over-simplifications
and decontextualized
unhistoricized
dis-enculted
starkly isolated from human experience
studies,

When the practices
and beliefs
of those raised inside the Fold
become obviously heterodox,
our too often StraightWhiteMale authority voices
move toward excommunication,
shunning future cooperative
mutually creolizing empowerment,
remaining true-blue
dogmatically zealous
about our hidden
left-brain dominant
Earth-colonizing
anthropocentric mission,
messianism,
millennialism

And this left-brain overpowered indulgence
has repeated this disconnection,
this unredemptive severance,
this patriarchal apartheid preference
since prehistoric nature/spirit indigenous tribes,
long before Abrahamic written stories of Judaism,
Christian redevelopment,
and Islamic reform came into Earth’s empowering
and enlightening
constantly changing
evolving
revolving
spiraling regenerative connecting
communing
communicating traditions
nutritions
communions shared by all God’s living creatures.

One way of reading the economic
and political turns in the Gospels
is to see the story
of Pharisees
Saducees
and TaxCollectors
as Jewish authorities
who wanted to excommunicate EarthCreator’s Messiah
for stepping outside dogmatic institutional lines
of orthodoxy
and institutional
corporate
empire investment.

Rather than adapting,
co-acclimating to Jesus’s spiritual experience
of a Creator Abba
of regenerative
nurturing
co-passionate Love,
These WealthyElite saw their own unchanging Torah,
established commandments
educational and administrative regulations
dogmatic structures
and long histories of authoritative rabbinical interpretations
of Jewish Law,
as a final
closed religious system,
too privileged,
too Chosen,
supremely endowed with Yahweh’s divine teachings,
to be inconveniently challenged
by anyone with a deviant spiritual experience.

Academic awareness of positive integral deviance
is a modern empowering
enlightening
reconnecting hope with good faith.

What might we learn from this disconnecting
dogmatic
dark side of our GoodNews epistles?

Perhaps less arrogant
and internally preoccupied authorities
might appreciate our more multiculturally healthy milieu
within which all historically developed traditions,
cultures,
religions
have emerged
to describe connection integrity
and proscribe disconnection chaos.

Perhaps our positive deviant minds
and hearts
and spirits
and souls could be encouraged
to find a better religious tradition fit
to become more integrally accepted
and interdependently valued
as s/he/they continue their spiritual/natural journeys
into empowering multiculturally synergetic Truths
enlightening Ways
compassionate Lives,

Rather than the current hubris
of excommunicating
from the one and only True sacred Fold
in divine flowing rivers
of polyculturally communing
sacred EarthTime,

Revolving
evolving
spiraling regenerative climate and culture Changes,
positive diversity,
healthy empowering Missions
for enlightening wealthy spirit/nature vocations,

Reconnecting where each individual
has been,
accepted as now experienced,
and pointed in a new community support direction
toward that good faith
we hope to multiculturally become,
tomorrow’s peaceful practitioners
restoring Justice For All,
with no one left outside Earth’s
empowering local
enlightening global
Fold.

Healthy Democracy Candidates for 20/20

Skills for best qualified candidates
for healthy democratic leadership
on my Ultra-NonViolent
WinEgo/WinEco-bicameral short list
for 20/20 revisioning

During a global climate challenge
and multiculturally-felt crisis
of left-hemisphere risk
of further red dominance
and right-hemisphere opportunity
of integral blue/green Earth-health potential:

  1. Commitment to,
    and demonstrated experience with,
    blending and harmonizing win/win dialogue
    within a resonant multicultural collective
    of interdependently co-refining
    resident-designed cooperative
    economic and politically co-empowering
    projects

e.g. Integral Permaculture Designed bioregional therapy
to make local-acting/global-feeling communities
healthy again

  1. Rhetorical record demonstrates consistent focus
    on health and safety
    of all living creatures
    as one integrated
    cooperative
    eco-political system
    designed for natural/spiritual
    yang/yin
    secular/sacred
    left/right
    west/east
    north/south
    separatistic/interdependent
    either/or thinking and both/and feeling
    bipolar dominant and dipolar recessive
    bilaterally holistic resilience.

e.g. MultiFaith Mediator
following ecological/theological systemically integral principles
for secular/sacred
capital/emotional
deductive/inductive co-investments
to expand ego/eco-systemic NonViolet Communion
creolization multiculturing circles
for one united local/global economy
of cooperative,
universally democratic,
co-empowerment.

  1. Mature adult experience
    using human LeftEmbodied
    RightMind tools
    for compassionate resonance,
    through nonviolent communication
    and positive faith philosophy,
    verbal and non-verbal,
    thought and felt,
    personal and interpersonal,
    local and global
    levels of organic organization.

e.g. Multicultural Mediation experience
of a critical public health issue
looking for co-investment solutions
to remediate pathological climate degeneration.

  1. Demonstrated capacity
    to clearly articulate
    personal ego-development
    as a sensory/sexual healthy holonic part
    of a planetary,
    eco-systemically We-conscious,
    natural/spiritual nondualistic Golden Rule
    democratically applied
    within our Whole OpenEarth System

e.g. Public Administration experience
with composing global cooperative economic network maps
and/or labor and tool exchange transactions
for enhancing and extending holistic health/wealth ecosystems.

  1. Ability to produce
    a coherent public and climate health platform
    for bicameral revolutionary green peace networking
    modeled after well-established
    Deep Learning ecological/theological
    polycultural health paradigms,
    environmental and neuropsychological sciences,
    and/or aesthetic metaphoric nature/spirit
    metaphysical relationships

e.g. Restorative justice reforms for remediation
to normatively replace retributive injustice deformities
producing politically toxic criminalization
and economic marginalization
and socio-cultural
multigenerationally systemic degeneration
decapitalization
decrepitude
and not so much positive
active faith in humane-divine
attitude,
much less healthy eco-political candidates

  1. Resonantly speaks and acts
    cooperatively
    for ego-minimalist choices
    and eco-passionate
    fully co-invested
    living healthy EarthWealth

e.g. Advanced training and experience
with non-violent communications,
philosophies
ecologically regenerative theology
with greatest health-sustaining secular effects
through least wealth of compassion’s sacred loss.

Investing in HealthPower

I think the political left
makes too much noise
about enlightened democratic goals

To be respectfully

by economic RightWing Christian,

Perhaps if we could bicamerally invite
a multicultured fluent

we might discover a democratically healthy Constitution

Influenced both by RightWing GodLanguaged

to build a sense of solidarity,
and by LeftWing EarthCooperative economics

Nurturing Faith

How does one nurse,
nurture,
feed and water,
parent,
teach,
mentor
facilitate,
mediate,
advocate for,
witness to,
listen for good healthy faith
in globally resonant possibilities,
in universal holistic integrity?

Of course
I do not know
how to answer your question
without you.

But,
I do know
my answer
to this question,
rooted in my own experience,
will most certainly NOT include:

Invest heavily in Earth’s demise
as a living planet,
as a beautiful home,
as our future
regenerational
healthy and safe habitat,

As matriarchally iconized by MotherEarth
Queen Gaia
Queen Sabbath
Green EcoFeminist Eden
Positive Yin Flow with Yang Power

Holy

Great Faith Revolutions

I suppose we might uncover
many differences in theologies,
Eastern and Western,
Southern and Northern.

One of these differences
is not fundamentalism itself,
which appears on both polarized sides
of the natural/spiritual worldview aisle.

Yet within primal fundamental faith commitments
remains a profoundly appositional orientation,
between good faith
that each creature
is born fundamentally win/win enlightened,
in positive psychology
and in Eastern theology;

And bad faith
in Patriarchal Western traditions,
that all of segregated monotheistic
human nature
is born fundamentally win/lose disempowered
by sin and attachment
to ignorance,
illusion,
craving,
addictions,
rampant sensuality,
promiscuous and deviant sexuality,
a rather negative monocultural psychology
of a vengeful punishing spirituality

In tension with healthy attachment
to natural creatures,
to Creation,
to ReGenerative Fundamental Principles
of multicultural cooperation.

Strange, however,
in the narrative
spreading across developmental psychology,
matriarchal prime attachment theory
ecofeminist sociology and history,
global religious multicultural green
indigenous tribal wisdom,
and positive psychology,
our ecological natural
and theological spiritual narrators
begin with win/win DNA sacred scripture
cooperatively read between EarthMother nature
and Her co-acclimating fertile nurturing eggs
of integrity’s potential nutritional health,

After birth
comes the Great Fall
of RightBrain win/win
interdependent worldwideweb
for all EarthTribel,

Childhood transitions toward win/lose
LeftBrain verbal and deductive dominance,
iconized by secular capitalistic
monopolistic
patriarchal
competitive ego-perpetuating aggression
violence
colonization
enslavement

And LeftBrain rationalizing racist economics
and political straight white male privilege
to disempower victims
and sinful perps

Declaring exemptions to fundamentally Positive Golden Rules
against those who fail to scoff
at multicultural fundamental commitments
of ecofeminist Whole Earth
nature spirits.

A third moment in this narrative
reweaves Fundamental PreBorn Attachment
with Original PostBorn Sin,
making up Great Turnings
LeftBrain dominant
RightBrain prominent
overpowering Win/Lose capitalistic monoculturing
2020 revolving toward renewing polycultural
Transitions,

A mesmerizing three part story
of narrow ways
and means
and dipolar co-arising truths
moving toward remembering
our fundamental Born Again
Win/Win CoPassions

Of health optimizing wealth,
secular and sacred,
yang and yin,
left and right,
West and East,
North and South
theological ego/eco-fundamental bicamerality
for redemptive green and global
multicultural
Great Faith Revolutions.

Executive Summary:
To optimize Great Faith Revolutions,
all ingredients of Make America Great Again,

Peak Empathic Experiences

Send me no more peak polypathic experiences.

They are too dear
for my everyday time budget
of liberal
liberated
liberating
resonantly exhausting compassion.

I am too addicted
to conserving resilient peaks,
avoiding dissonant valleys
of mundane anonymity
sometimes winning
sometimes losing
in-between equanimity
integrity of co-empathic
co-arising intent
for more co-operatively rooted
heights of sacred generosity
reciprocally felt gratitude,
positive, democratically sustainable attitude.

Every scientific cause-effect karmic statement
of peak interactive experience
does not have to be structurally
routinely tested
before it is accepted,

But,
to become an accepted hypothesis
of peak cultural interest
it must be capable
of being deductively tested
for sequential,
and co-arising peak,
or appositional unpeak, relationship
consistent
at least within prescribed parameters.

Every faith statement
need not have been personally experienced
before it is accepted
as orthodox belief,

But, good faith must be capable
of leading toward co-arising
climaxes of copassionate experience.

History of great scientific and religious revolutions
provides examples of paradigms
and medicines
and cognitive-affective
natural-spiritual
ecological-theological therapies
found explicitly useful
long before becoming autonomous subjects
of reductive cause-effect
karmic
experiential
experimentally reified verification.

History of great faith revolutions
provides win/win
external-nature/internal-nurture
cooperative examples of medicines
and paradigms
and meditations
and thought experiments
and bicameral polyphonic confluence
found prophetically useful
long before becoming subjects
for inductive co-arising compassion.

Scientific and religious historians
would not reasonably conclude
that testing hypotheses,
of win/win positive correlations,
win/lose negative bipolar reverse correlations,
and lose/lose not/not correlated unpolynomial variables,
independent and dependent
interdependent
codependent bilateral testing is unnecessary
or ill-advised
or acts of leftbrain deductive peaking hubris.

Rather,
ecological and theological theories,
physical and metaphysical,
may be politically
and economically
and spiritually
and naturally
and culturally
and socially
and psychologically
and neurologically significant
even before leftbrain dominant tested
for peak winleft/winright experiential outcomes.

The generation of deductive theory,
like regeneration of inductive good faith statements,
grows out of abstract leftbrain thoughts
conversing with rightbrain feelings,
metaphysical thought experiments
faithfully distinct from win/win climax confirming
or win/lose physically disconfirming
or lose/lose misconfirming unexperience.

Bicameral co-arising positive faith formulation
of scientific and religious
karmic theories of causation,

linear
and/or spiraling spacetime,
leftbrain dominantly reductive
and/or rightbrain prominently inductive,
subtractive
and/or summative,
spatially differentiated
and/or spacetime holistic,

Cooperatively predict healthy resilient relationships
between understanding
and standing under holistic systemic openness
to healing win/win peak experiences,
hope,
faith,
love,
polyempathic compassion.

Capacity to envision
new co-arising ways
of perceiving peak causal phenomena
and to propose powerful prophetic explanations
for good faith
positive health perceptions
is a leftbrain characteristic
of linear-deductive metaphysical formulation,
3Dimensioned orthodox spatial maps
structures,
tropic frames of trophic reference.

RightBrain co-relational observation
and LeftBrain experimentation
do not,
in competitive isolation,
provide bicameral revolutionary peak experience
polyphonic reconceptions
without which
faithful everyday inquiry
is randomly aimless
and dispassionately blind
to peak poly-empathic experiences,

Too unresiliently dear
for ego’s everyday time budget
of good faith liberal
liberated
liberating liberation,
resonantly inhaling exhausted compassions
of history’s polycultural peak experiences.

AntiChristian Trump

Communion does not approach dawn
to vilify our most public egotistic victims
and predators.

Who would it help
to dismiss, with terrifying labels,
iconic
reproductions of sacred history?

But, global legends
contain lessons
for our interdependent
deep cultural learning.

What is a Western Messiah,
an Eastern Bodhisattva?

A wise leader
who sacrifices personal health
safety
enlightenment
immediately transcendent empowerment,
on behalf of those left behind,
poor in spirit,
wounded in nature,
fractured in mind and body.

So, an AntiChrist
is self-serving,
a worshiper of mammon,
a capitalist pig,
if you prefer,
although this feels unfair
to the contented
peace-loving reputation
of healthy pigs.

An AntiChrist
would weigh the value
of personal
and corporate quarterly,
and annual,
and election term profits
more heavily
more selfishly
more anti-Christian
more anti-Islam
more anti-Buddha
more anti-peace
more anti-health
more anti-compassion
than the value of aging lives
most transparently vulnerable
to this post-millennial Virus.

No naturally healthy
and spiritually wealthy
and religious person,
whether disciple of Christ
or follower of Mohammed
or contemplative with Buddha
or ecofeminist as yin-faced Laotse,
could look
and listen
and feel
and think
with cooperative integrity
to discover restorative fruits
of the Holy Spirit
and/or indigenous HolyWind
in the Nationalist Republican
and narcissistic Capitalist Trump
administration

Competing against multicultural campaigns promoting
Love,
faithfulness to wealth of health,
hope for conserving Earth’s living safety,
gentleness,
kindness,
long-suffering patience,
goodness,
integrity,
meekness,
peaceful democratic compassion.

By our active love for Other,
for the immigrant,
the sinner,
the pagan,
for even those who are privileged
and intolerant supremacists
and bullies,
are we known as not AntiChrists.

None of us can prove
by salvific action
or fruitful compassionate deed
that we are redeemed Christians.

But all of us can disprove
by unhealthy degenerative divestments,
by selfish actions,
by pathological misdeeds,
by violent and intentionally misdirecting words,
that we are unredeemed AntiChrists;

Not that I believe Biden
and the not green and non-violent enough Democrats
are likely to invite,
much less multinationally enact,
the global healthy wealth Second Coming
of Earth’s peaceful rapture.

Waking Up Lumpy

Wake up grumpy
tired
much older than yesterday.

Day fifty-seven,
an irrationally
not nice
non-round number,
since defiantly challenging daughter,
with the contextual right-brain unhealthy intelligence
of a sociopathic alligator,
last came home from school
or anywhere without me.

Remembering her school’s response
when I suggested her six-hours-per-day aide
five days per week
not be switched out every week
or two.
She doesn’t do well with transitions
including interpersonal change,
lack of power to control
a significant Other’s time
to stay
and go.

While aware this is an issue,
their larger concern was burn-out.
Aides couldn’t tolerate the intensity
of her hostility
and constant need
need
need for attention,
for food,
for distraction,
for action,
for…

Wondering how the best of her school supporters
would feel after 228 consecutive
six-hour shifts

Without any supervisor
capable of reassuring me
or him
or her
or them
or us
of how many more to go
without adequate social distancing
within our lumpy quarantine space.

No possible reassurance
or warning
we’re just getting started,
about to end,
over the hump,
or not so much,
actually.

Perfect.

Definite only about feeling humped out
and jumped in
lack of ease,
sucked out potential for unguarded rest.

Feeling sorry for myself,
yes,
but also for her,
and for all of us
who have taken risks
to give long-term care
where receiving care in response
is not a reasonable
or compassionate
expectation of hope-filled ways,
faithful truths,
loving lives

Quietly waking up grumpy
in unsolidarity
unsolitary confinement.

Contagious Health

In A Dog Lick Dog World

Are you feeling sad,
wanting your faith community,
democratic society,
to live more…
live more deeply…
live more widely…

Faithful to wealthy health, yes,
and I wonder if you are angry,
frustrated,
impatient,
wishing for more enthusiastic RESPECT,
more Aretha Franklin listened to
and more explicitly understood,
appreciated?

On my worst days,
anger.
Most days and nights,
impatient,
feeling stuck
in time moving too win/win opportunity slow,
and too win/lose risky fast.
On my best days,
impatient with capitalism
as monotheistically worshiped,
yet also multiculturally curious about remaining hope
for reconnecting personal health
with eco-political wealth.

I’m wondering if I could doubt
my own gastro-intestinal intelligence,
and what Earthly ego would I be
without bicameral ego/ecosystemic balance?

Now I’m confused.
Can you help me understand
how what you are wondering about
responds to my feelings
and win/win faithful needs,
of which I was just now speaking?

It seems like a more elite,
empowered leadership circle
in your faith community
may have trouble appreciating the fuel
investments
nutritional resources that listen quietly
and too tolerantly
too frustrated about win/lose communication patterns,
business as competitively usual
and leftbrain dominantly blind
to win/win nonviolent cooperative communion.

It feels like I am being cast
in the role of an ignored gadfly sphincter,
holding in all my compassion for healthy diversity
of theological ideas
and ecological experiences
digesting cerebrally
and intestinally,
thought
and felt nutrition
seeking healthier contagious outcomes.

I’m feeling amused
about wanting to imagine
what your perfect respected sphincter paradise,
our nonviolent win/win communicating;
what co-empathic inclusive faith community
would look like
and sound like
and smell like
and feel co-invested
and taste healthy
for you.

I feel encouraged
and supported
when you express active curiosity
about my feelings
and needs for healthy community,
safe sanctuary,
green asylum
from violent red-blooded
egocentric
anthropocentric predation.

I’m feeling resonance
yet struggling to actually connect
green restorative asylum
with concerns that “Man’s best friend.”
is a dogged species
no longer confident
our anemic human faith communities,
societies,
associations,
cooperatives,
remain Dog’s best friend.

Now there’s a species that respects sphincters!
