Ironic Revolving History

Interesting
is it not?

Not so GrandChildren of immigrants from Europe,
seeking religious freedom
and economic advantage
and almost certainly of self-examined HAVE-NOT status,

Because, if not of personally
and economically
persecuted persuasion
and unenlightened neglect
and politically disempowering abuse.
then why would these wise GrandElders
have immigrated
toward this more cooperatively enlightened health
and empowering democratic safety
promised MotherLand?

Interesting that some of their NotSoGrandChildren
are now feeling Elitely entitled
to StraightWhiteMale libertarian privilege,
are evangelically entitled,
chosen children and then adults
for wild red rapture DeathCulture fantasies,

Dark conspiracy theories
to explain chronic HAVE-Not economic
or political
or even right-mind personal status

Supporting ego redemptive nihilistic insurrections,
ecofeminist rape,
and pillage,
and strange black guerrila mob lynching theater
defensively justified anthro-supremacist extraction rights
without exploiting left elitist government officials
snobbishly intellectual
know-nothing betrayers
of those left neglects,
leaving under-privileged behind
without academic elitist learning

Not to trust
green clerical ecofeminists
storming mainstream privileged liberals

In love,
preaching EarthDay promises
of win/win co-redemption,
restoring divine natural EarthJustice,
healing the win/lose sick
and tired
and already retired,
and low self-esteemed,
wounded and broken

Without LeftBrain relevant
interdependent natural compassion creation stories,
recreation development narratives
severed from RightBrain spiritually interdependent
sensory impassioned memories

Of RightWing judging wounds,
steeped in red-blooded American StraighWhiteMale
blaming and shaming,
revengefully right reactionary
against intolerable and ungrateful GrandChildren
too multiculturally alien

Immigrants,
underemployed spiritual pilgrims
seeking new EarthVisions

ReVisions of Old Testament hospitality
GoldenRules of polycultural religious light
of freedom,
economic cooperative powers
of resilient ego-health
and EarthDay safety

Win/Win cooperative Paradise,
green democratic delivery of Heaven
away from self-proclaimed HAVE-NOT Hell
monoculturing
Not So Grandchildren daily ZeroSum lack

Of liberally civil love,
civic status,
multiculturally re-connecting,
religioning NonZero Souls
found interesting,
are we white systemic privileged not?

NotSo GrandChildren of poor and tired immigrants
from Europe,
too often weak and broken and tired,
suffering losers and sometimes
too heterodox sinners,
seeking multicultural religious freedom
and more cooperative economic advantage
and almost certainly hoping for integral green compassion
in ego-as-ecoOther re-examined
HAVE-NOT sufficient green cooperative
healthy democratic
win/win bicamerally empowering
enlightening interdependent status,

Because, if not interesting,
then continue spinning
win/lose patriarchal
LeftBrain dominant history
instead of win/win matriarchal
co-enlightening mystery
of green ecofeminist win/win powers.

Costs of Freedom

The value of individual freedom
seems impossible to quantify
without at least knowing,
What is this freedom for?

What is this freeing political and economic purpose?

Will my freedom
and your egalitarian
side by side
sometimes competitive
sometimes cooperatively multi-sided
liberty
liberate us to live in robust wealth
of interdependent multicultural health?

Is this individual freedom’s disvalue
to die in unhealthy,
boring,
lonely,
divisive pathology
of pretend autonomy
for individualistic lack of thriving polycultural wealth?

Challenged by economic and social distancing,
Stuck in quantitative and qualitative commodity losses,
both monetized and uncommunicated values
for healthy wealth of democratic multicultures
felt robustly freeing
resonant
resilient health systems
thriving through win/win interdependent communications
where we have leisurely and always sufficient time
to take a warm breath
together

Revaluing messages reminiscent
of earlier critical nationalistic times
when The only thing we had to fear
was straight white patriarchal nationalistic fear
itself.

Today,
the only thing we must not tolerate
is straight white patriarchal privileged intolerance
of leftbrain monocultural predation
itself.

The only thing we must not individualistically punish,
and thereby further empower,
is retributive vindictiveness
our monoculturing
colonizing
supremacist selves.

The only nationalistic freedom value we must not shun
is our own interdependent guilt itself

For the undemocratic
unhealthy society
we too often tolerate
at least within our freedom envious selves

Discovering commodified
monopolizing
monotonizing
industrialized
militarized win/lose communication value
is too expensive,
yet I too often empower
asset envy of Others,
especially those felt
as outside my own extended family

Thereby dissociated from my polarizing ego
freedom values for continuing
business as nationalistically
and autonomously usual
monopolizing partisan patriotic
unfreedom reacting against
loyal
liberating EarthJustice patriotism
rooted in multigenerational
co-empathic interdependent identity.

The value of individual freedom
seems impossible to quantify
without at least knowing
how is this freedom for
Earth-enlightened co-empowerment
of healthy communicating lives
multiculturing
multi-generational wealth
of sacredly reflected
secular
multisensory
neurologically systemic
win/win through win/lose experience
not lose/lose absence
of ego-liberating
ecosystemic memories?

Freedom for Global Compassion

Seminar Reflections

Liberal Lovers
invited a 2020 Trump follower
to lead them
to his personal straight white patriarchal trust
in strength
and privileged anthrocentric freedoms
to extract Earth’s wealth as needed
wanted
comforting
and entertaining
and convenient probably at least,
or even at most,
for this generation
of supremely intelligent
LeftBrain dominant
EarthOwners.

When asked where I find myself
debating against his eco-political logic
I had no strategic plan
or well-integrated clue

Why strongly resilient FreedomFrom
crippling environmental
and social capital restrictions
is not a resonantly sustainable balance,

An error in EarthJustice
resulting from discontinuous independence
of ego-individual liberty
to discredit
and divest from
evolving multicultural interdependence
of all multigenerational revolving life systems.

Just as exile from interdependence
may produce restrictions apart from multicultural
compassionate communication

As intellectual property apartheid
does not feel like freedom toward health
sustainably engaged in mature
well-capitalized CommonWealth responsibility,
nor freely invested in egalitarian dignity,
nor automatically re-investing
in democratic trusting healthcare futures.

Freedom to invest in healthy happiness
and freedom from monocultural diversions into sadness
cannot preclude each Other’s continued potentiality
to be known
and felt
as competitive
predative foreign devils
and/or
cooperative
multiculturing co-invested
liberally loving interdependent EarthTribe lives

Happy/sad depolarizing
regenerative/degenerative bilateral revolutions
of lively/deadly
freedom to multiculturally
Yintegrally invest
while enjoying freedom from monoculturing
Anthro-OverPowering
divestments
away from ZeroZone
health/wealth co-responsive
Earth

Suggesting,
now that I have had a moment to reflect,
that Yang’s anthro-freedom strength to
repress Yin’s multicultural free-flowing wisdom
works out better for Yang/Yin resilient health balance
than LeftBrain ego-patriarchal dominant monoculturalism
v RightBrain ecofeminist prominent
deep learning
listening
communing within multiculturalism

ReMembering neuro-sensory creolization
reconnections
compassionate re-ligions
restorations
transubstantiations
liberating communions, given and received
freely harmonic
resiliently redundant communications
of and for EarthJustice.

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.

Freedom Requires Peace

Ecological relationship
forms theological and ego-logical minds,
both omnipresently transcendent
and intimately eco/ego-political;

Both enlightening
and empowering

Earth justice
from interdependent EarthTribe peace
toward cooperatively invested freedoms
for compassion
both right hemisphere inclusive feelings
and left hemisphere deductive thoughts,
reductive-inductive;

Both ecosystemic Beauty
and ego-recentering Truths;

Multiculturally co-passionate,
non-violently communal,
restoring theological peace
as ecologically balanced justice

Where life becomes peaceful medication
love is freedom’s EarthSoul meditation.

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.

Health Addictions

Health brings freedom to live
intentionally
resplendently
maturely
resonantly
integrally
regeneratively
compassionately
resiliently
kindly.

Freedom is personal,
but also social,
political
but also economic,
ecological
but also theological.

Health requires freedom from addiction
to beliefs:

Some people are born to rule
and own Earth,
while others are born to be serfs
and slaves,
laborers
and frightened/angry addicts.

Some people are born
to be born again,
while others are born
to be unredeemed,
idol worshipers,
poor,
sinners.

Some straight males are born to be White
Evangelical Supremacists,
while others are born
to be Other.

Some people are born to extract
from healthy Earth
as they choose to expand personal
and corporate materialistic “wealth”.

Others are born to be entertained by,
and sometimes envious of,
these violent stories
of capitalistic rape
and plunder.

Multicultural dreams of inclusive democracy,
expanding throughout all cooperative economic strata,
encompassing all politically engaged genders,
all nations and tribes,
all positive energy systems
to regenerate a global health network
of wealthy freedom
for all interdependent creatures
globally here below,
and those who fly,
and revolve,
and generate light
power
energy,

These are ancient
indigenous dreams
of non-addicted trust,
non-dualistic Truth,
polycultural free-trade outcomes
for EarthDwellers,
EarthPatriots
EarthLovers
EarthSabbath Worshipers.

Regardless of age
gender
race
left-brain dominant enculturation,
colonizing violent history,
capitalism’s win/lose supremacist games,
energy’s zero-sum secularizing theology,
degenerative ecological fears
and angry
unfree
fossil fuel addiction,
consumer-driven overpopulation,
lack of freedom to sleep safely,
to live healthy outside
in familial communion
with Original Sacred EcoFeminist Earth,
etc.

The Dali Lama,
born to sainthood?
a view I doubt he would support,
says his religion is kindness.

Perhaps his spirituality
resonantly respects EarthMother’s kindness
and unkindness–
much easier to do outside
than inside a dimly addictive
unfree temple.

Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
pseudo-science,
nondual
nonviolent
inscrutable
paradoxical
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
analogy,
theological ecology.

Polynomials,
western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
free,
liberated,
communal saints
and divided sinners.

Fruits of Democratic Spirits

Modern minds,
torn by royalist repressions,
hoped democracy would inhale
and expand
freedom.

Freedom from depressing suppression,
lack of creative tension,
safe expression.

Freedom to invest
in post-feudal farms
and families
for future fresh respiration.

Lost were more indigenous memories
of ancient creature comforts,
democratic tribal humors
rumors
tumors benign
and sometimes malignant,
safe and scary,
significant and sacred.

Indigenous wild minds
worn smooth by felt democratic experience,
shared recreative tensions,
cooperative co-acclimation,
cherished freedom for eco-political integrity
more honorably cooperative
than freedom of competing ego-authority

In 2020 hindsight,
ecological
healthy Earth-relationships
for better democratic trust,
predict honorable
resonant
and resiliently touched
theological experience.

Golden Tongues and Silver Bullets

Freedom of speech
is less about freedom from suppression
when more about freedom toward mutual dialogue,
cooperatively held impression
to co-invest in active democratic hope.

Perhaps this is why
First Amendment non-violent communication values
grow in heart-felt significance
as Second Amendment rights to bear violent arms
recede in multicultural salience
safety
security
sanity.

This causal hypothesis
feels further supported
by First Amendment’s second part,
freedom to peacefully assemble,

More likely peace found through cooperative dialogue
than lost, again, through ballistic debate,
whether presidential or non-presidential,
featuring the sound of my own heated voice
drowning active hopes of all others present
here and now
longing to be heard
and known
reminded we belong First together

Not Second
to bear arms and words,
weapons against each other.

Having the right
does not make it right
to be violently
and egotistically wrong.
