And Everyone In Between

In theology,
and healthy ecological
and pathological relationships,
I know self-righteous fundamentalists
and nonviolent nondualists,
and most everyone else
processing together
win/lose
either/or
in-between
both/and.

Odd,
how such an abstraction
between fundamental uniformity
of sacred energy
and nondual co-arising unity
of divine light,
can sever a healthy
humane
polynomial balance,

A harmonic resonance
championed by the newer
fundamentally either/or deductive processes
of verbal language
calculating oppositional contrasts,

And the other flowing from ZeroSource memory
reincarnating nondualistic both/and inductive
karmic intentions,
preference for healthy
ecosystemic
appositional comparisons,
balances,
20/20 vision…evolution…regenerative resolution.

In ecological compassion
between egoLeft and ecoRight,
Yang NorthWest and Yin SouthEast,
and theological wealthy
positive co-relational wisdom
between EarthNature and co-arising HolySpirit,
national cultures and global climates.

I know denialists of good faith
good humor
and good healthy
multicultural extended democratic
green families,

And I know apparently wiser co-arising
dipolar both/and
nondualist wisdom seekers,

LeftBrain dominant
and RightBrain spiraling
ecologically and theologically evolving
20/20 nonviolent nondualist revolutions

In fractal spacetime
4D prime polynomial co-passion,
as P approaches balance
as also N(NP

Equals

Full/Empty ZeroZone regeneration health trends,
as DNA fractally encscripted
prophesied
proclaimed
celebrated multicultural language
for EarthHealth rights/wrongs
regenerative health/wealth trends,
often confused with degenerative health v wealth choices.

Sometimes
the greatest nationalistic karmic therapy
is to never violently prefer
to capitalistically
patriarchally
prophetically
militaristically
aggressively
playground bully
international terrorist
go it alone,

Individually
culturally
socially
economically
politically
nationally
and even as a humane enspirited
sacred species
of multicultural mediators,
global health optimization advocates,

Permaculture Designers
for democratic empowerment,
restoration,
and dense dancing polyculturally stable outcomes,

Restorative Justice Court Officials
against criminalization
and revenge
and racism
and white male privileged heterosexism,
and further xenophobic violence,

NonViolent Communicators
of nutritiously compassionate co-investments
in healthy shared futures,

Students of systemic theology,
and ecological healthy relationships,
knowing fundamentalists,
terrified about biologically unhealthy
lack of natural sexual relationships,

And nonviolent nondualists,
advocates of universal resolutions
for healthy light,
and unitarian
interdependent webs of reweaving
beautiful moonlit EarthRivers
of flowing Humane Justice.

Fundamental Correctness

Healthy robust meditation,
taught
in diverse schools of thought,
theological
through ecological,
biological,
psychological
sociological
and neurological,
begins with correct posture.

But, “correct” does not mean
only one orthodox way.

Correct
is more about medians
than evangelical means,
favoring balance,
centering practice.

Correct
accommodates diversity,
cultural differences
and universal similarities
of humane bicameral consciousness.

Correct posture,
like correct theology
and correct understanding
of ecological relationship,
is about polyphonic correlation
and not monoculturing stagnation.

Yet, correct posture,
correct health care,
correct political and economic relationships,
are not merely subjective,
not merely “relative”

Any more or less than correct theories of relativity
are merely subjective,
chaotic,
degenerative,
entropic.

Rather, correct postures,
frames,
forms of discernment,
notice,
healthy curiosity,
good humor,
structure,
transparent networks,
resilient systems,
are correct
as they are in left/right
west/east
north/south
ego/eco balancing relationship,
noticing tipping points

Toward Yang’s natural revolutions
in mountainous significant space
and Yin’s spiritual evolutions
co-arising spiraling valleys of time

Where polypathic relationship
correctly resonates
polyphonic resilience.

The Big Fascist Elephant

Once upon eternal time,
all philosophers
and theologians
and ecologists,
published and unpublished,
credentialed and indigenous,
elders and children
and all ages in-between,
alive and dead
and all health indicators in-between,
got together
to sort out our competitive win/lose mess
of competing theories
about just what is this elephant
star of our BigTent historic stage.

Some,
especially straight men of color,
but many others as well,
argued the head of this fascist elephant
is racism.

Others,
especially straight white women,
and their feminist allies,
argued the head of this pathological creature
is patriarchalism.

Others,
especially LGBTQ wo/men,
and their straight allies,
were sure this fascist elephant head
is homophobic sexism.

Others,
especially positive psychologists
and communication system theorists,
encouraged more resonant dialogue
about how this fascist elephant
is led by either/or deductive
reductive left-brain cultural dominance.

Others,
especially social psychologists,
whole system thinkers,
eco-political pathologists,
permaculture ZeroZone restorative healers,
advocates for restorative justice as peace,
cooperative economic ecologists,
WholeEarth systemic theologians
advocated multicultural co-mentoring
non-violent communication
to better see and hear
heal and not punish,
feel and think
with full mindbody intelligence
about how this fascist elephant
of Western hemisphere dominant capitalism
win/lose favors egocentric monoculturalism
elitism
narcissism
ethnocentrism
anthropocentrism
through metaphoric polypaths
dreaming
streaming
scheming all of the above.

Imposed Unemployment

These matters of imposed sequestration,
home health quarantine,
residential segregation,
safety zone re-education

Can also become
contemplative solitude
growing sacred mindfulness,
healthy wealth revision,
2020 wealth of health
bicameral precision,
monoculturing capitalist rescission,
dipolar non-division;

Social,
political,
economic communication
significantly emerge from personal preference
but also left-hemisphere patriarchal enculturation
no different than propaganda
if delivered with both left and right-hemisphere
collusion intent,
unnaturally sinister,
calculating desecration,
the stuff of deep state
and dark conspiracy theories

Either True or False
or both/and complexly
ego/eco-bilaterally ambiguous,
subtle,
nuanced thought with unpolarized feelings
for interior nurtured spiritual intention
and exterior nutritional natural extension,

Discernment of which solitary seeds
and subterranean root systems are health watered
and wealth weeded,

And which are treated like worthless weeds,
not to be watered with contentment,
fed with commitment,
nourished for cooperative values,
cherished within ecosystemic futures,
compassioned.

This weediness of ego-neediness
prays for non-preying return
to ecosystemic communal fullness.

Parents for Peace

So what sane parent
would intentionally lead their family
into internal
or external war,
right?

Well, apparently former political
and religious extremists,
neonazis,
Islamic fundamentalists,
Christian fundamentalists…

Oh, wait,
I’m not sure their Republican White Nationalist
AntiDemocratic First Amendment,
kleptocratic and oligarchical Second Amendment
LeftBrain rabidly ballistic dominant
Anti-natural/spiritual nondualistic health intentions
are yet media-conscious enough,
yet, still, these fake-Christians among us
are visible as far too comfortable
with Mammon’s military-industrial ballistic defense

So terrified of Sodom,
Parents for Terrorist Religious War
and Threat of FinalRapture Weapons
neglect to notice
their own naked butts
delightedly backing toward beastly Gomorrah.

Anyway, with or without reformed Christian NeoFascists,
Parenting for Peace
is against militarism,
possibly for the usual costly inhumane and environmental
and economic reasons,
but also because,
as mental health-recovering parents,
and grandparents,
and future great grandparents,

They see military-corporate theft
and associates
like colonialism,
and missionary zealous patriarchalism,
and sanctuary apartheid racism,
and homophobia,
and sexism,
and anthropocentrism,
and xenophobia
as corporate public health hazards.

Rabidity,
like subclimates of health,
wears both an internal, mental, spiritual face,
and an external, physical, natural Earth EcoSpace;
codependently negative, pathological,
as transectorally positive, eco/theo-logical
robust future health potential.

Sacred Stewardship

Stewardship
is taking cooperative care of what you don’t own,
giving and receiving care
of what you could not rightfully own.

I could not exclusively own a symbiotic relationship,
a robust string of reiterative emerging communication,
a resonant relationship,
harmonic integrity.

I would most resiliently own nothing
without profound solidarity
lived in economic and politically empowering sanctuary,
free of colonizing intent
through capital-driven reductionism.

With a more ecofeminist cooperative stewardship
arises an ancient,
yet renewing, emerging win/win
bicameral co-passion,

Not about which transcendent spirits are up
and which beastly alien natures are down;

Not either divine
or human,

Not sacred
or reduced to mere mundane secularity,

Not mindfully transcendent
or mindlessly immanent,

Not supreme ecosystemic interdependence
or severely disassociated,
ego-uncentered.

Ecooperative stewardship
is about curious egos within
giving and receiving care
with and from courageous eco-life systems
interdependently cooperative,
more than hidden and competitive,
without prior resonant win/win association.

Stewardship,
both/and cooperative
more than either/or competitive,
bicamerally re-associates
restores
resonates
Left with Right bicameral thoughts with feelings
of warm care received from EarthWombed heritage
returned for Earth’s active compassion given
as received,

Won
as mutually successful,

Divine
as also humane,

Sacred
as profoundly communioned EarthNature,

Ego rights received
as eco-responsibilities cooperatively given
shared
communicated,

Eco-empathically co-relationed,
theologically co-passioned.

Dear Evangelical Brother

Dear Brother,

When we were children
adults often asked us
What do you hope to be
when you grow up?

But, our brothers and sisters
were more likely,
and probably more wise,
to ask
Who would you most hope to become?
To be like?

Which implies, to my unformed ear
and eye,
Which of these adults you know,
or know of,
do you like best
as a mentor
for your own happiest and healthiest,
and most prosperous
future?

I am about to finish reading Iain McGilchrist’s
“The Master and his Emissary.”
And, if I had known Master McGilchrist
as a sixteen year old,
I would probably have said
I want his life
and that’s the guy I want for my BigBrother!
I would be his most zealous emissary.
He’s the one I would become
just alike,
twins if possible.

Twin careers.
Twin ideas.
Twin knowledge and wisdom.
Twin naturality and spirituality
and natural law
and ordered sacredness,
emotionally intelligent communion.

But, that was then
and this is now.
And I wonder if I ever asked you,
not what kind of evangelical Christian
white privileged Western capitalist
doctrinaire thing do you hope to proficiently do
when you finally grow up?

But, instead,
to find the courage to ask you
Who would you,
embodied in Christ,
become like
when you are suffering servanting
in your thirties?

We might have had a lifelong dialogue,
not about creeds and dogma
and theological departures from win/win co-redemptive
cooperative economies,
compared to win/lose capitalist business as secularly usual,
compared to lose/lose degeneratively devilish and bearish economies,
more disempowering long-term climate trends
than empowering hope
faith
love.

We might have thought out loud together
about how Suffering Public and Private Servants
are like a Messiah
like a Bodhisattva Peace Warrior
like a PermaCulture CoOperative Designer
like a Restorative Justice and Win/Win Peace Advocate
like a Green STEAM architect,
a resilient engineer,
or prolific teacher
and skilled listener,

We might hope to combine
gospel references to right-hemisphere Revelationary Sacred Rapture
and healthy left-hemisphere climate preferences
for Evolutionary Secular Promise,

A promised return to sacred/secular
RightWing and LeftWing
become whom we would most like to hear
as faithful health scientists and wealth musicians,

Disciples of sacred wealthy
best means secular healthy
reborn again
reweaving
returning
resiliently recombining
global green Body of Christ experience,
feeling,
thought,
optimally appealing.

I’m sorry for not asking
how I could be a healthier and wiser
gay Christian-Taoist-ZenBuddhist-Native Nature/Spirit Wisdom
inspired and inspiring
younger brother,
more sure with your trust
and inner truths
than without you.

I’m sorry distant homophobic fears
and perhaps anger?
envy?
repulsion?
fear of predation?
(this part remains unclear)
seem to have kept us from mutually asking,
Who would we most like to become like together
when we are in our sixties
and seventies?

And now,
When this question seems more plausible,
and immediate,
I wonder how different, and yet the same,
are our opportunities to experience
this sacred potential
for re-creating loving Earth, together,
fertile,
healthiest wealth of HolySpirit embodiment
celebrating Her sacred historical birth Brother,

Unlike Jacob and Esau,
reconnected by sacred Matriarchal Wombs
culminating in reborn virginal brothers
saved/not-not saved from lose/lose perdition,
partition,
through both universal-human/unitarian-divine
natural Messianic win/win Spirit,
consiliently sacred,
resiliently secular,

Heavenly stardust Fog
embracing global oceanic dark waves,
currents of timeless
flowing potential color and multicultures,
rhythms and patterns and flow designs,
Living Waters,
truth with trust,
Wombs with Ways toward necessary Light,
nights and co-redemptive days

More WiseElder for sinister sacred Right retributive Judge
and golden secular Left restorative Advocate,
still listening compassionately together,
less fundamentally apart,
with good evangelical humor,
more than bad.

East Meets West Association

The East Meets West Philosophy Association
had their annual 2020 conference in Rio,
when and where anything multiculturally lusty
is more likely to happen,
especially between sunset
and sunrise.

Coincidentally
and existentially
and phenomenologically
and ecologically
and ethologically
and epistemologically,
and astrologically,
and metaphorically,
it was necessarily
and sufficiently
and justly
and truly
and trustingly at dawn
on a sweltering Saturday morning
that their Friday night communion commencement started
a revolutionary new/old system
of rhetorical left/right questions,
meant to impress
more than depress
future polarized regenerations
and generations
of trans-regenerative Philo/Sophias.

These renewed professional
academic
expert
sophisticated
preliminary
heuristic
yet uncompromised consensual issues:

1. What if Earth’s primal meaning
is most satisfactorily
and usefully
and beautifully
and healthily
and resiliently found,
in deep bicameral learning
how to optimize our already co-present regenerative systems?

2. Would co-passions deductively
and inductively
and seductively
and reductively,
but not unductively,
co-arise non-polarizing suggestions
demands
requirements
reasons
rationalizations for our neurological and psychological,
body and mind receptors
and communal DNA senders
to design
grow
evolve
recreate
re-synchronize
our self/other
ego/eco maximizing
global digestive/reproductive systems?

Green cooperative redemptive economies
more powerfully resilient
than overly competitive
burning-out
chronically-stressed
climate
monoculturing hubris systems

Geo-
and eco-
and ego-systems
absorbing healthy/toxic
redemptive/unsalvific nutrient offerings
through our sense and sensual
listening and speaking
communal organs,

From chakra karmic bottom
grace receivers and sacred givers
on up through
livers taking in and pushing out,
and bicameral hearts and lungs
breathing newborn sexless voices in
and breathing out healthy sensual reborn wounded child
warm-wombed song and dance re-memories
non-verbal then verbal,
nutritiously purposed

Connecting up sacred integrity,
reconnecting downstream secular autonomy
deep and widely satisfying dialogue
hoping for inside Apollonian
and outside Dionysian climates
of compassionate
non-pathological communication
communities
co-arising polypathic secular Philo
polyphonic sacred Sophia communion.

3. How might we,
together more than apart,
make the second non-question,
and endlessly unfinished life opportunity,
much shorter,
sufficient,
transparent,
vulnerable for self/other health optimizing
secular left-yang nutritional strength
co-arising
wealthy sacred right-yintegral-fractal-squared-cubed exponential
DNA bilateral structured
nurture-wombing purposeful meaning flow?

4. Healthy LeftUniversal affluence
through transparent/opaque
wealthy RightUnitarian effluence?

5. Apollo
not shrugging off,
dismissing and shaming,
Dionysus?

6. Taurus Earth
reseeding
Aquarian Dawn’s Promised Land with Waters?
(Too lusty, perhaps.)

7. Father God
returning
Holonic Nature/Spirits?

8. East nondualism
feeding and watering
Western dualistic wounds
between pre-
and re-embodied Spirit/Nature
and night dream polyphonic secular ZeroSouls
communicating relentlessly about
Ego’s Zero ZenCenters
healthy feeding
wounded wealthy
Blue/Green organic Philo/Sophia Wombs…

Rebirthing
Incrementally and exponentially polypathic co-passioned,
secularly and sacredly polyphonic,
polynomially interdependent,
not yet/still
non-verbing/verbal
pre/re-nouned
ex/informative polynomial,
not-not zero-polynomial,
etc.

Executive Summary:
Every thing and relationship yields to nothing
as no thing and no relationship
no time and no space
yield every thing and relationship and time
and northern/southern place
to grow and know ourselves
as also compassionate communicating Others.

Colorful Cultures

White is fundamental absence of color,
as is evangelical black.
But, white is colorless
due to emptiness
while black
because of good news fullness.

Transparency is presence of visibility
as is not darkness
but transparency is void
where opaque is dense.

Life is absence of death
as death is absence of life.
But, life is full and dense
while death is empty and void.

Promising evangelical integrity of all motions and emotions
actions and reactions
presence and co-presence
in-between radically sacred
and fundamentally secular
cultures of dualistic meaning
evolve courageously bright
with loads of curious light.

Kleptocracy

I’m reading this book about germs and guns and steel
and pre-history
and human history,
predators and prey,
and people praying they won’t be predatored.

You know,
light bedtime reading.

So, this guy who wrote the book…

No, not the Daniel Quinn thing.
Quinn thinks the beginning and end of our nutritional civilization story
is food production.
He forgets we can also hear cooperative health
and overly-rabid pathologies,
like CEOs calling “bleed the poor to feed those already too rich”
“tax cuts”.

I mean,
I guess they are tax cuts
if you happen to be in the top 20% US income bracket,
but that seems to miss the healthier democratic point
that Lower 80% Lives Matter Too.

No, not Quinn,
it is this younger guy,
Jared Diamond,
who probably never even met Thomas Merton.

Diamond mentions “kleptocracy”
where I would have used “plutocracy”
or “aristocracy”
rather than “democracy”
but this sounded too kleptomanic
to nutritiously feed integrity
of national health
and personal
and family
and non-elite wealth.

So I had to look up this kleptocracy word
to see if it might be the economist’s view
of the political scientist’s view
of plutocracy.

And, sure enough,
here it is,
right, but feeling very wrong,
on dictionary.com:
“A government or state in which
those in power exploit national resources
and steal”

This sounds familiar
from the Declaration of Independence,
in which the original USA forefathers
informed the British aristocracy
that we are all done
with the stealing of natural and human resources
thing they called “taxes” and “fees”
and the white male property owners
(including slaveowners)
called tribute
and extortion.

Meanwhile I was listening to the Cohen testimony
about some plutocratic kleptocrat
racist extortionist
buying and selling his white privileged way
into our way too WhiteHouse
extolling the unabashed value of WinLose capitalism,
so long as those born into “Win” households
remain unfettered from their colonizing
and extorting
and racist
and homophobic
and xenophobic lack
of any semblance
of traditional Christian virtues
or Islamic virtues,
or Buddhist virtues,
or Taoist virtues,
or Hindu virtues,
or Jewish virtues,
or democratic constitutional well-being
and prosperity virtues.

So, there you go,
I’ve already learned my new word for this plutocratic day
and kleptocratic nightmare.

Who knew?
We have words for everything
someone might ever need
to slice and dice
and serve up,
like food production
to grow less healthy
uncivilized undemocracies.
