Life On Top

I long to be the top new-green leaf
on the tallest swaying spring breeze tree
in my florid fragrant late-spring neighborhood.

Not to lord myself
as superior to all my more fundamentally plebeian brethren,
but to celebrate this vast sisterly view
of who we sunlit glowing are
becoming toward summer’s climax together,

Then falling gracefully
in full colored autumn,
when I will have the longest downward flighting float
of all migrations

Becoming, once again,
a sacred part of snow-covered soil
feeding next spring’s tallest new-green leaf
of All transregenerators.

Standard
Red and TrueBlue Family

Red and TrueBlue Family–4

Dear Siblings Three,

At least three of us four
have survived this first round
of sharing our seeing Reds
and ourĀ  feeling Blues.

At this point
I imagine our eldest sister
reading with interest,
and/or possibly contempt,
and holding all these things
in her heart and mind.

The other three of us,
two Blue,
elder Brother Red,
each have told our stories,
reviewed our positions
during this first year
of the Trump CEO
Public Sector Administration,
USA.

I did not find an explicitly stated value
or disvalue
shared by all three of us.

There are, of course,
several values and disvalues shared by the two Blues,
Kerry and me,
and two disvalues
shared by RedMike and BlueKerry
are loss of freedom
and loss of safety.
And, although I didn’t say so,
I would certainly put these two
squarely in my disvalues column
as well.

Integrity is a positive value
mentioned by both RedMike and BlueGerald, me.
While BlueKerry does not use the word
I know her well enough to appreciate
this also fits transparently within her values lens
just as venality and mendacious subterfuge
are disvalues
both Blue and Red CoHeld,
and yet too often targeted
by cash-fed multinational media.

Apparently
as we love integrity
we are also fascinated by its evil opposites,
like Lot’s wife
looking over her climate holocaust shoulder
when it would be way better for her health
to dwell on the PromisedLand in front of her.

Blue responses
emphasize health care giving
and sacred gift economy receiving,
restorative justice and peace,
and ecological education
as therapeutic values.

Mike’s Red response
emphasizes moral code,
law and order,
retributive justice
and defensive technologies and personnel
as more saliently held values.

Yet,
these are apparent differences of priority,
not necessarily oppositional Win-Lose differences.
Points of contrast invite comparison
and need not predict disloyalty of mutual incompatibility.

To my surprise,
and dismay,
I do see some points where active RedValues
seem to also be active BlueDisValues,
double-binding Win-Lose Boundary Issues:

RED / BLUE
Divine rulership-authority / degenerate monoculturing climates, cultures
Military strength / loss of global and national safety thru violence
Monocultural intent, monopolistic monotheism / sacred polyculturalism

As I look at these three,
they begin to look like three faces
of one tension
within a shared Sacred PolyPathic Intention:
Retributive blood justice through crusading JustWars
conjoining
Restorative EcoJustice through BiLateral PeaceMaking.
Old Testaments
within New Grace Contexts.

From a Red evangelical Christian frame,
this takes me back to Jesus Christ’s
prime Messianic message
and function
and purpose:
Jesus came to save this entire creolizing Earth
through Abba’s restorative grace economy,
baptism through living water and full enlightenment,
healthy light transubstantiating His Judaic Law and Order
retributive sacred justice through blood sacrifice Traditions,
through just-wars and OldSchool self-righteous jihads
and military might of Caesar’s commodifying Win-Lose coin,
colonizing violence all now washing away
by baptism of Messianic-Bodhisattva redemption,
polypathically sacred,
polyphonically sung and danced
by and through rivers of sacred world-citizen enlightenment,
bilaterally cooperative spiritual experience
of polyculturing Grace
for a world so loved
God created
to regenerate Christ’s EarthBound Eden,
perpetually reborning.

First Nation’s creolizing sacred healthy invitation,
multicultures of and for Earth gratitude,
is Second Constitution’s colonizing,
and King James Bible-rooted,
EnLightenment Intent,
away from monotheistic totalitarianism of Royal Rulership
in favor of polyphonic truths of grace
in democratically evolving cooperative trust,

Father of ego’s Hope,
Son of Earth’s Great Transitional Faith in MultiCulturing Grace,
Spirit of (0)Tao Primal Relationship
humane/divine
through ReStorative EgoPeace
within Sacred EcoJustice
as nature-spirit mentored
by MotherEarth.

So, now I bow
in Taoist-Christian gratitude
for these our gifts
and invite our minds and hearts
to speak through One Grace Way,
bicameral Truth,
bilateral times in loving Life
restoring Eden’s global ReGenesis.

When I was a fundamentalist egocentric child,
I listened and spoke as an innocent child asking Why?
When we ecopolitically mature into One Body of Bodhisattva-Christ,
we speak polypathically
and dream polyphonically
to ask Why Not?

In Jesus’ eternally transubstantiating Name
and Word
and Way
and Truth
and Timeless Life,
Your Brother Gerald,
inviting our most generous 2020 responses
of and for mutual democratic trust
in divinely generous truths
we all can share on Earth
as in Eden’s Heavenly Promise.

Praising Our Feminist Wind

Our forest habitat
gusts breezes
across our skins,
as darkness slowly turns
toward bright sky light.

My son
who cannot walk
nor speak his name
talks vociferously forth and with
and adding as this morning breeze
together part of Her embrace,
playful tickles
across his advocating happy Yanging face
teaching out and taking in, as possible
what and whom is impossible
for any of us to see,
whether blind as he
or sighted as we
might actually hope to be.

D is an avid scooting son
toward virgin forest greetings,
able to smell and feel morning seasons and rhythms
of days and night,
dark and persuasively gusty bright
flow of solar and lunar breezes
across our democratic EarthBound skins,
nurturing solidarity
older than concrete avenues toward cities
of overwhelming unforesting,
unraveling
tribes producing what once was nutrition,
good food more than fake food,
healthy love of gusty bright mornings
over toxic repressed-yin darks,
nightmares of climate acclimation
to separating multi-sensory linguistic pathologies.

D’s life is liturgy of love
blemished only by occasional aversions to entrapment
and suffering alone
when we might become possible
to produce healthier webs of cooperative nurture
together,
Dad and D
as We.

Daranyani D,
celebrating sacred forest winds
as feminine matriarchal principles
gracing his brown naked skin.

Diversity of days and holonic nightdreams,
democratic nutritional pluralism,
principles of forest reweaving civilizations
older than cities
surrounded by fading cultures of wealth
through deforesting this EarthTribe Morning
which,
on its very best warm gusty day,
has become worthy
of concelebrating Daranyani D’s
forest optimizing breezes,
liturgies of EarthTribe’s
Secular Out and Sacred In

Just like his preachy, but basically happy, ElderDad
co-eco incarnating
our forest habitat
gusts breezes
across our skins,

GirlCutt Voices

What sustains life are sacred values,
so what cannot sustain becomes pathological.

Matriarchy is about nurturing and care-giving,
protecting life and conserving cooperative energies;
yet that implies that patriarchy devolves to controlling
and competitive care-receiving,
destroying life as WinLose necessary
to violently offend against further competing failures of energy.

Patriarchy: Producing for this WinLose generation.
Matriarchy: Conserving for next WinWin generations.

Don’t call that defense,
call it what it is,
offensive militarism
plutocratic nationalism
which acts like baseball fields used to perform in the U.S.:
If you build it
we will come to exploit it.

A fratricidal nationalistic ecopolitics
is also a suicidal WinLose ecologically cynical strategy
against future generations
who will never become,
never emerge
because we refuse to prioritize
WinWin organic nurturing processes
of co-empathic conservation
as mental and physical healthy climates;
basic synergetic hygiene.

Freedom Seekers
was the next generation vision
of our Original Freedom Fighters;
not so much to merely perpetuate younger fighters
rather than seekers first.

Seek and ye shall find.
Don’t seek,
and we still fight on.

This is neither the time to become hypnotized
terrorized
or even merely reactionary against Trumpians
in this postmillennial moment of climaxing climate pathologies,
our perfect storm;
yet it is also a critical time
to not continue being responsive
to patriarchal anthropocentrism
in all its …ism aspish apeish forms.

Why should U.S. women continue paying federal taxes?
Investing further resources in WinLose politics,
when we could, instead,
invest in WinWin cooperative ownership
of Earth as our mutual share-held Commons.

We could instead invest our tax dollars
in planting trees
and building stronger cooperative ownership
including deep learning and healthing ego/ecosystems,
and investing in WinWin ecopolitical,
and personal,
sacred and naturally regenerative games,
work and recreation,
networks of positive matriarchal co-discernment,
springing up from pockets and guilds of mutual subsidiarity.

This is not just a U.S. women’s federal tax boycott,
but all women who feel suppressed
and know oppression of cooperative investment
in and of and for future generations,
all conservationists of Earth’s healthy futures,
including our own,
and our families,
and our neighbors,
all allies boycotting nationalism
to co-invest in global cooperative nutrition-building networks
of WinWin sacred ecology,
both multicultural and polypathic,
creolizing polycultures
of and for regenerative health
from (0)-sum now
through interdependent evermore
Deep Learning Time for CoOperative ReEducation.

Nationalism is a political landscape problem.
Matriarchal eco-repatriation is our ecopolitical climate of resolutions.
All living systems vote yes with our cooperative lives;
no with our degenerative ego-exhaustion.

If not now,
when?

If not you,
whom?

If not here,
where?

If not this regenerative potential,
then what remaining degenerativity?

If not for love,
then why bother?

Military offensive strategic norms
derive from fear that cooperative love
will not and cannot grow powerful enough
on the other side of a line we have drawn
in our minds.

And this fear
is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
For where fear rules our inter-relational policies
and international controlling procedures,
then love must thereby fade
from a fear-mongered collective mind
abandoned to pursue monopoly games,
drawing ever more fading lines
in quicksands of mistrust
in and on Earth’s profoundly robust cooperativity,
standing-by nutritional potential
for mutual loving contentment.

It’s not that competitive WinLose capitalism is bad
or intrinsically patriarchal evil,
it’s more that cooperative WinWin capital investments
work better
longer
for healthy conservation of multiculturing wealth.

No taxation
without equitable cooperative representation.
A classic ring
with a touch of postmillennial zing.

Taxing investments sustaining healthy life are sacred values,
so what cannot
and must not pretend to
sustain ecological wealth becomes pathological plutocracy.

Dancing Through Swamps

Mom, did you hear the news about patriarchy today?

Yes, dearest son!
Or no…
I’m not sure.
You mean the gender translation problem?

Not sure we had a problem,
just an honest mistake
we might more empathically suppose.

Perhaps I am too paranoid,
hunting conspiracies
and thereby gathering folly,
yet reversing ancient scriptured words
for penis and vagina
smells hellfire brimstone intentional to me.

So much for my plans to become a priest.

I am so sorry your lack of a vagina
now feels emasculating of your future,
my great-loved son.
What vocation remains
for you to find
now you have become the infertile son
of a sacred matriarchal Priest?

Mom, really?
Tell me you’re not pursuing ordination again.

Why not?
We talk about a priest shortage
brought on by massive defrocking of priests
without the newly requisite vagina.

Maybe I could go into religious education.
Yet, truth told
my head’s not in it,
nor was that an implied penile reference,
teaching all those boys
how and why
when and where
they must now become subservient
to the more robust virtues
of the more sacred vagina.

Maybe you could teach in an all girls school?

But,
I don’t feel like an ecopolitical after-thought,
ready to slurp up only mainstream leftovers.
This reverse translation issue
feels unnatural to me.

Well, of course it does, my son,
you don’t have superior vagina wisdom.

Maybe I need a sex change.

Maybe we all need some trans-regenerational
re-education.

If you say so.
You’re the one for nurturing vagina dialogues.

Sacred Ecology of Game Theory

The healthiest and wealthiest ecological objective
of designing and playing life
is to optimize potential for continuing reiterative plays and transactions
as long as possible.

Win-Lose
EitherEgo/OrEco
ZeroSum monopolies,
such as bottom-line competitive capitalism
and bullying
quickly devolve,
diminish down to one supremacist ego-political Winner.
Yet then this relentlessly Might Makes Right game is over,
and so this Winner only wins to lose the entire cooperative gaming network.

Win-Win
BothEgo/AndEco
NotNot Positive Zero-Sum
double-binding equivalency norms,
such as Golden Ruled,
optimize options of Tit-for-Tat reiterative continuous healthy
and “wrapping in” or “creolizing” inclusive,
gifting-forward,
delayed mutual reward,
robust continuity,
unto perpetuity of this same naturally cooperative gaming network.

Yin-Messianism is too often confused with over-Yanged zealotry,
with Win-Lose Zionism as nationalistic patriotism,
in which
should our nationalistic pretensions of elitism Lose,
such as losing a Vietname War, for example,
then YHWH has also lost,
suffered a demi-death.
Win-Lose zealotry of nationalism will,
if too over-grazing successful,
predict its own idolatrous fall from sacred grace.

Continous matriarchal-cooperative creolism, polyculturalism, multiculturalism
lies between Yin-rooted defenseless messianism
and Yang over-shot. totalitarian nationalistic, defensive zealotry.

It is possible to have a healthy interdependent national ientity culture,
but it would be as matriotic as patriotic,
it would not be discontinuously-supremacist nationalistic,
it would be co-messianic,
multiculturally cooperative messianic,
looking for syncretic uniting nations
nurturing healthy Earth climates
and landscapes with polyculturally regenerative outcomes.

It is possible to avoid messiah complexes,
whether personally or ecopolitically public as naked elitist patriots,
by recognizing we are a co-messianic patriotic/matriotic species
for waging Bodhisattva peace and mutual mercy.

Messiah complexes are essentially and idolatrously egocentric,
about what I can do to save the less free and/or loyal and/or pure world;
co-messianism is about what we are One-MindBody doing together
to co-redeem this creolizing recreative EarthTribe.

“[Elitist-purist] permaculture is not the [polyculturally cooperative game] landscape,
or even the skills of [healthy] organic gardening,
sustainable [ecotherapeutic consuming-producing] farming,
energy [informational] efficient [natural] building
or eco-village
[or eco-international matriarchal-cooperative ownership] development
as such.
But it [co-messianic polyculturally positive-healthy outcomes]
can be [cooperatively and transculturally] used
to [democratically] design,
[nondually co-arise] establish,
manage and [co-empathically trust] improve
these and all other [double-binding WinWin] efforts
made by [YangLeft/YinRight balancing] individuals,
households
and communities
[and nations]
towards a sustainable [multiculturally healthy
and democratically safe,
co-redemptive ecopolitical] future.”
David Homgren, “Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability [of Nationalistic Patriarchal OverYanged Patriotism]

The healthiest objective
of playing long sacred life
is to optimize WinWin relationships.
speaking of an individual organism
and an individual interdependent nation.

Matriotic Trust

The organic building of a coordinated artist
begins with reconstructing competitively clumsy LeftBrain technicians.

Whether learning to play the piano
or learning to communicate in some new language
or learning to adopt,
and/or adapt,
norms and nuances of some new cultural environment,
human nature starts, and started, with RightBrain
as inductive unconscious autonomic pre-programmed DNA/RNA receptivity,
double-bind fractal-octave resonance,
to and with and as externally and internally triggered changes,
and builds out deductively
reductively decomposing complexities of some performance system
we notice in some other,
including other humans,
we are attracted to in some positive empathic-trust way,
inviting further trust.

But, stumbling across an anomalous situation,
a creature,
human or not ambiguously felt
and has become historically suspect,
we distrust due to negative threat,
aggressive competitions
where we would have normally anticipated cooperation;
or maybe just too loud and stinky
to mutually ignore in some tolerant kind of way.

From perennially positive systems
soliciting and supporting our further WinWin nutritional relationships,
and from our negatively toxic attritions,
our deductive LeftBrain builds labels
to reduce the whole gestalt
into its cause-effect cycling and spiraling parts
until we can predict
to our satisfaction,
and sometimes hypnotizing horror,
how to regenerate/degenerate this behavior with our own mindbodies
through deliberate,
step by consecutive technical step,
building technique until this new pattern,
sequence of rhythms within interdependently cooperative performance,
becomes what we call “second nature”
internalized,
as automatic as finding our ways back home.

But, this second nature,
whether learning to perform a song
that is also a compelling and resonant emotive narration,
or venomously screaming threats at anyone you perceive as unlike your own egocentric self,
in some unenlightened way,
becomes incorporated into Left and Right Brain reiterative appositional flow.
Technically learned performance
moves from Left-deductive
toward Right-inductive co-arising nondual
nature-nurtured habit of “second nature” expression,
thought,
activation of a mastered behavioral-affective constellation
of interior/exterior activity,
as natural as writing with your left
or right
dominant hand.

Given all the above,
when and why would becoming a violent aggressor
become an ego-acceptable,
LeftBrain deductive dominant choice
of encultured instinctive response to “non-kin”
as opposed to “not yet kin”?

How would one become attracted to,
and sustained by,
becoming a dissonance-creating and expanding bully,
an aggressor against potentially immigrating strangers as aliens,
labelled collectives of ecosystemic individuals, hives, nests, pests
who have not themselves ever actually exhibited threatening behavior
toward yourself,
or those you already perceive as “kin”?

It seems that terrorism and bullying
might also be rabidly aggressive behavioral-affective negative patterns
which can be as competitively-reiteratively contagious
as cooperative trust
in healthier patterns of becoming together
rather than thrusting and parrying apart.

In WinWin as NonZero ReGenerative Game Theory,
and in Feminist EcoPolitical CoOperative ReProduction Theory,
learning resonant-positive nurturing behavioral norms
anticipates nonzero-sum, nonpatriarchal-competitive, outcomes,
WinWin bilateral equivalence
that normatively anticipates pay-it-forward more of the same
as long as everyone follows Left-Right learned
behavioral-affective Golden Rule matriarchal-maturation patterns
toward mutually nutritional “second nature” norms.

What is actually Elder brain stem “first nature”
is profoundly matriarchal-cooperative ownership and governance
except under unusual survival Win-Lose pressures of past experience
as environmentally reconceived.

It is here
in anomalous primordial seas
of survival of the “I Win so You Lose” fittest
where might makes our ego’s self-optimizing right
to survive today
despite knowing that doing so by accessible aggressive means
predicts more of the negative same,
or even more escalating,
risk of loss tomorrow.
But, this is not normative “first matriarchal-love nature”
just as it is not first-nurture,
for if zero-sum survivalist toxicity
were our AntiGolden Rule primordial soup
from which we arrived at this time on Earth,
then human LeftBrain dominant nature
could never have evolved decompositional technique at all.

Declaring private or very public wars against alien terrorists
is a suboptimizing zero-sum choice
to play a negative LoseLife-LoseLife Game
unless no nonzero-sum option has been more diplomatically learned
that we have not yet responsively tried.

The zero-sum “I must win” so “You must lose” of Either-Or bottom-line producer-over-consumer-oriented capitalism,
with competitive ownership rather than cooperative ownership WinLose assumptions,
is a sub-optimizing economic and political performer,
still trying to relearn our first-nature matriarch-nurturing health and safety.

Capitalism as might-makes-right evolutionary theory
is patriarchally LeftBrain dominantly deductively mislearned,
technologically over-shot,
ecologically over-grazed ecopolitical error
in its unmitigated incarnation
away from baseline cooperative matriarchal stewardship
and nurturing co-management roots.

Ecologic,
like sacred syncretic Logos and Mythos,
is prime relationally,
primally Original Matriarchal Source,
WinWin,
notnot zerosum,
for the same reason economic transactions
and politically positive relationships between kin,
extending out to neighbors
and those perceived more ambiguously as extending-extensive biological kin,
are rooted in continuous Left-Right ego/eco-balancing extensions
from co-empathic trust as positive and normative health-roots,
embryonically matriarch-regenerative,
while actively anti-pathic, sociopathic distrusts
are suboptimizingly negative and violently degenerative.

Economic-political distrust’s sole positive evolutionary function
is in decompositional hindsight,
to break poor outcomes down
into their devolving cause-effect interrelationships
over reiterative reactive time,
to remember how these healthy relationships and wealthy transactions
of equivalently grateful WinWin
pay-life-forward communication broke down,
or simply never fully emerged
due to socio-political and economic climates
of ego-over-competitive neglect.

“the conscious-unconscious [YoungerLeftYang-ElderRightYin] cooperative interplay
also applies in full to moral behaviors.
Moral [cooperative] behaviors are a skill set,
acquired over repeated practice sessions
and over a long time,
informed by consciously articulated [LeftBrain languaged] principles and reasons
but otherwise “second-natured”
[back and forth] into the cognitive [Left, Right] unconscious [balance].”
Antonio Demasio, “Self Comes To Mind, Constructing the [WinWin ReGenerative] Conscious Brain”, p. 287

“I see permaculture as
the use of [WinWin Game] systems thinking
and [notnot 0-cooperative] principles
that provide the organizing [regenerative-positive] framework
for implementing the above vision [of nutritional abundance].
It draws together the diverse ideas,
skills
and ways of [cooperative ownership as governing stewardship] living
which need to be [ecopolitically] rediscovered
and [regeneratively] developed
in order to empower us to move
from being [co]dependent consumers
to becoming [matriarchally] responsible
and [cooperative-]productive
[ecological WinWin] citizens.”
