Sexier Santa Passions

Community trauma prevention
sounds not so sexy
to absent-minded mayors
and perennial kleptocratic players

And growing a regenerative Learning Community
isn’t really ecojust about restoring
healthy democratic justice
for a somewhat sexier
and robust multicultural environment.

Both of these Win/Win Game Theory
trauma-informed learning theory applications
remain paternally erectile
mountainously synergetic
strength functions
of community YangWoke experience

And valleyed ecofeminist
indigenously EcoMatrimonial Wise
for growing integrity’s flow
of nonverbal ecstasy
nonviolently yin
peak rebirthing experience
polycultural win/win wombed learning
co-passionate communionation

Sacred root chakra souled
and yet carnal

Bottoms UpRising

Nothing grows naturally
or resiliently,
and certainly not perfectly,
from the top down
or from the outside in

Including pyramids
and sustainable nutrition economies
and healthy
organic
democratic systems.

Some things
that do grow virally
from outside in
and/or over-powering
top down:

autocracy
cancer
kleptocracy
pyramid schemes
viral colonies
capital expansionism
invasive species
toxicity
pollution
trauma

I once spoke at a condominium meeting
about cooperative democratic values
for self-governance

Advocating for transparent
and inclusive choicemaking

And grassroots community maintenance

And social
and skill-sharing events

Sweat-equity
and time/talent exchange
cooperative economies.

The condominium’s attorney,
whom the large majority of members
were about to terminate
along with the autocratic landlord
investor board chair
who hired him
to come to this annual meeting
and explain,
rationally
and legally,
why the residents could not do
what they wanted to do,
which was mainly to get rid
of him
and his organized trauma
straight-white-male Patriarch,

This smug condominium attorney
stood up
when I had finished
to lecture members
and correct me
about we actually do not live
together in a co-invested democracy;
we live in a from-above Republic.

He was slyly speaking
at both the local condo level
and the national corporate
capitalized Republican level

Because, he continued,
unit owners have elected leaders
given exclusive authority to vote on
governance issues
that the uninformed
and unelected laity
lack responsibility
(and possibly
StraightWhiteMale capacity)
to decide.

He misjudged his audience.

This republican authority from above
and from outside
power-over totalitarian business,
rather than power-within democratic empowerment,
was precisely the problem
this meeting had been organized
to resolve,
by democratic recall.

The attorney had his power analysis
backward.

If we are,
in our core
root residential membership
a healthy
and actively cooperative
win/win intentional
health-is-social-wealth
democracy FIRST
FOREMOST
FOUNDATIONALLY

The grassroots of our self-governance
are more likely to elect empowering
and enlightened republican leaders
with a resonant
and resilient
empowering within view
valuing transparency
and multicultural inclusion

For sustainable local
and global choice-making
from the integral
happy
synergetic
robust top

The celebrated envy
of all our benign
and collaboratively empowering
neighbors

Noticing with multicultural wonder
and polycultural awe
that nothing grows naturally
or resiliently,
and certainly not perfectly
or sacredly
or democratically,
from the top down
or from the outside in.

ThanksGiving CommunioNations

ThanksGiving advances

Arising thoughts about boundary breaching risks
and perennial partisan issues
and deep listening opportunities.

Perhaps only the Othering
and Othered One Percent
instilling in their children
and future grandchildren
that extended family meals
are never an appropriate time
or sacred space
to speak of desecrating politics
or sanctimonious religion
and, above else,
nothing remotely suggestive
of personal sex histories
and fantasies.

And yet,
from a deep power analysis perspective
of richly co-invested feelings,
these three,
together,
form a developmental narrative
of how spiritual empowerment,
RightHemisphere felt,
and natural enlightenment,
LeftHemisphere considered
and reconsidered
and preconsidered
and formerly unconsidered
thoughts

Develop toward co-passion,
gratitude,
resilient capacity for giving
and receiving Thanks

However agnostic
atheistic
monotheistic
polytheistic
and/or panentheistic

Our sensory sexual systems
are indigenous,
forming already
before we are born,
known,
heard
and smelled
and tasted.

Religious
or even anti-religious enculturation
speaks to our sensory-spiritual
mental
metaphysical experiences

Peaks and valleys
on a range from empowering positive feelings
and negative diesmpowering associations
with metaphysical thoughts
and physical feelings,
attitudes,
belief systems
dreams
and nightmares

Sometimes closed,
and therefore entropic,
and degenerating,
claustrophobic
and pathological

And sometimes open
and whole
and regenerating,
trusted
and healthy
and resilient.

Here
where resonant metaphors emerge
more helpful social communication boundaries
change
morph
conciliate
creolize,
embrace win/win sexual
and religious
and political strategies

Unlike win/lose work
remains politely segregated
from win/win play
at tearing down judgmental
stress and trauma boundaries

Like dark and light,
seriously competitive vocations
remain dimly dissociated
from humorously cooperative vacations
from old capitalist school
patriarchal business as bottom-line
competitions for short-term profits

While investing in
more long-term fruitful
political relationships
can also become explicitly sexual
and/or implicitly religious,
spiritual
and natural,
mental
and physical powers
of not only self-righteous internal governance
but also Other governing fair
and equitable
and integral power relationships,
cooperative win/win
and/or competitive win/lose
and/or despondent lose/lose.

After the second glass of wine,
with the kids off at their G-rated table,
and football announcers
creating white
and blue and black and brown
and hot red seething
tight shoulder and hip pad testosterone
distracting noises
and visions
and revisions
in life’s sensory underground
and background

It might be appropriate
to ask about a cherished Other’s
sexually political spiritual energy lives
as if trauma-reducing resilience
through nonviolent communication
deeply
sacredly
integrally matters

When healthy and safe communication
remains politically felt
and religiously thought
and neuro-sensory shared
becomes welcome curiosity
and invited transparency
and cherished vulnerability,
what has never been courageously discussed
may also be what empowers thankfulness
and enlightens this Gratitude Day

For rich sensory meals
and peak experiences,
for robust political laughter and joy,
and spiritual integrity
of resiliently good humor
and health-enlightened
smells and tastes and looks
and wealth-empowering grace

We might yet give thanks
this religious
and political
ThanksGiving Day,
including both neuro-sensory fulfilling peaks
and over-stuffed purgation valleys.

Lessons Partially Learned

Parents

listen up

We too often act
and feel
the reverse is more quickly

through rigid control,
or at least should
or could
or would like to be enlightened true
more than disempowering false:

Empowering cooperative ownership
arrives slowly
but resonantly
and more resiliently
through enlightened cooperative management

and win/win resonant tenure

And not so much the other
entitled
and self-righteous
stress
and vindictive trauma
competitive way around
treading heavy capitalism’s survival

of our healthiest
trusted ways abound
to cooperatively manage peace
that we would justly hope
to EarthTribe own
into safest perpetuity

A trusted indigenous wisdom franchise
to retrain
and re-educate parents
and teachers,
empower economic programs
and enlighten social service leaders,

and legislators,

supporting lives never autonomously owned
and always sacredly zoned

Claustrophobic Center

Much has been felt
then written
about loneliness at the top

Less written,
yet perhaps far more often felt,
about claustrophobia in the center.

Problems with delegation,
boundaries,
predictable timelines,
responsive management focus,
follow through performance,
competitions to be heard
listened to
appreciated

Nonviolent calm
peace,
by contrast,
invites resiliently harmonic
win/win expansive
sublimely integrating
synergetic intention,
anticipation
slowly pushing out
and fading rabidly frenetic
anxiety,
chronic stress,
unmitigated win/lose trauma histories.

Integrity’s potential,
and not universal win/win perfectionism,
delivers resonantly happy,
wholesome,
healthy,
contented wealthy outcomes,
ecologically reconnected
with mythos
and eros
and ethos
and aesthetics
of panentheistic Paradise Promised

Is not perfectly comprehensive control
of a punishingly comprehensive
self and other governance system
felt as loneliness
near a constantly threatened
egocentric top

Of a patriarchal
capital-infested
win/lose zero-sum monopoly game
of Seize My Autonomous Day

Without unconditional regard
for EgoSelf as primal mentor
of what we look like,
versus what we feel like,
at the top of our AnthroPrivileged lives
without perfect GoldenRule encircling love.

A healthier democratic trust
for expansive EarthTribe circles
of co-empathic investment
may outdoor ease
our anxious indoor claustrophobic disease
fearful of disappointing
both authority figures
and our relentlessly needy constituencies

Angry at loss of privacy,
settling for less than sacred communion experience
within EarthTribe’s full sung range
of polycultural voices

Multiculturing choices
to feel and grow better,
healthier,
safe wealthier together
than dancing,
singing solo apart

On a stage
with a too bright ego spotlight
narrowly glaring at my own soul-embodied
godlike protagonist

Either against my own claustrophic circle
of followers
or standing alone at the supremely pompous top
of those already Othered
and thereby lessened–
followers,
sheep,
rather than cooperatively informed collaborators
steeped in Earth’s sacred
indigenous wisdom
and Sun’s enlightened
whole open systemic focus.

I suppose integrity’s co-empathic potential
for both/and nuanced
warm inviting cooperative regard
might be a contagiously viral
win/win alternative ecofeminist view

Anticipating cooperatively re-integrating
re-connecting
ecological mythic enrichment
of epic Here/Now
epistemological Body/Mind
eternal Life/Love
curiously interdependent Truth/Beauty
restoring Mundane/Sacred
bicamerally balanced
Paradise Lost

In EarthTribe wounded circles,
traumatized,
but not yet broken

While much has been autonomously felt
then written in self-isolation
about uneasy loneliness at the top
and diseased dismay
in a viciously shrinking circle
of traumatic climate despair.

A Year Ago

About a year ago,
as the COVID pandemic
seemed to subside,
then swell,
happily ebb
and yet impatiently flow

About a year ago
I was noticing cold autumn nights
bringing first frost
to my metal windowframes
and to my post-surgery tired back
and neglected aging heart.

Outside corner unit 315
my view to the south
of brownfield industrial waste
not salvaged
when converting this condo place
to residential co-invested space.

Outside all our interior doors,
a CommonsGrace ignored
for at least a decade of degeneration
now accelerating divestment
by investors seeking rental profits

And also by resident owners
who could not feel certain
that others felt shamed
by a stained
and torn carpet,
elevators that sometimes worked,
cracked and vaporously blind windows,
dilapidated doors,
impending rot
and gloom
and financial doom.

Now
a year later
our parking place
awaits demolition,
to become hauled away
dismissed
disposed of,
further disgraced,
to be repurposed
refaced
in some future highway
graveled trace.

A year later
our communication grace
is in transition
from feeling alone
victimized by our own hired hands
and by our Commons Governors
indulging an economy of capital scarcity,
patriarchal politics
of executive privilege,
an implied theology
of StraightWhiteMale
monotheistic exceptionalism,
as if godly wisdom comes down
only from an enlightened professional high,
and not from within
our sacred ecofeminist administrators
teachers
mothers
grandmothers
sisters
at least as swell.

Co-invested in cooperative
win/win resolutions,
ecologically reconnecting EarthCare constitutions,
health and safety non-prostitutions,
Yang strong and Yintegral flow
of bicamerally balancing institutions,
mindbodies for longterm healthy democracy,
transparent bilateral trust

Nonviolent communicators
cooperatively planning
and priority budgeting
to heal our side-by-side loneliness
by reconnecting cooperative care
for EarthTribe Wisdom:
a formerly healthy
polyculturally wealthy
sacred planet,
a multiculturally inviting property
for growing edible and ornamental plants
and health-minded wealth-embodied people,
enlightened LeftBrain strong and vital
empowering RightBrain co-empathic flow
of root
and gut
and sacred peak experience feelings

While planning not just to survive
our individual autonomous lives
but also to thrive
through EarthCare
for at least another 7-Regenerations
of healthier healing LeftBrain
ecological co-relations
and safer sacred RightBrain
panentheistic
EarthMatriarchal
co-empathic re-connections.

Our individual victim histories
of patriarchal-capitalism
now repurposed
to help heal our co-invested residential experiences
with PolyCultural Communion,
rejoining planet Earth’s great transitioning
climate of health and safety enterprise

Rather than hiding in self-judgment
and Othering shame
for moving in
to unhealthy and unsafe
historic property demise.

Healthy Life Integrity

I find a consistent
constitutionally protected value
hidden in Preambulation
and historical Declaration
reaffirming U.S. healthy democracy,
our Holy Grail.

Life
liberty
pursuit of happiness
well-being

During Enlightened Elder
1700s,
and still largely our worldview today
in deindustrializing MidWest
sweltering South
acid raining East
and, most mystically,
among empowered Californians
and Oregonians
and Washingtonians,

Healthy democratic intent
for integrity of humanity
supports HEALTHY life,
INTERDEPENDENT liberty,
and win/win pursuit
of resiliently SUSTAINABLE
happiness,
well-being,
peace.

This non-issue
of our constitutional republic,
with healthy,
growing
still-evolving
dynamic democratic intent,
purposed with sacred meaning
to nurture and support
HEALTHY life

Becomes more obvious
when considering what an “ethic of life”
would look like
if our eloquent ForeFathers
and wise GrandMothers
had UNhealthy life
as an economic
and political aspiration

Any quality of life,
regardless of how compromised
pathological
sinful
demented
unhappy
joyless
violent
pathological
ignorant
greedy
belligerent
traumatized
chronically stressed
dissociated
severed from a shared reality
of cooperative peace
and co-invested contentment

Could not be a consistent ethic,
or family morality,
of HEALTHY life
for all organic creations,

Not preferential for Straight White Men,
but a healthy polycultural democracy
to support healthy
interdependent
sustainable human lives
of all cultures,
inter-religious beliefs,
compassionate feelings,
nonviolent communications.

More recently,
ecologists
and creation theologists
and climatologists
have added an interesting footnote
to healthy democratic aspirations

If we would have
nutritionally
politically
economically healthy resilient lives,

Then we need
and want
to extend our democratically appreciated agenda

To include HEALTHY lives
of oceans,
forests,
river systems,
air,
bioregions,
food chain
interdependent
sustainable
life-care systems.

As far as I know,
my Republican friends
and family
share this expectation of our governors,
legislators,
executives,
court systems,
to seek HEALTHY life care

And, not so much
PATHOLOGICAL
diseased lack of caring
for all Earth’s sacred tribes,
species,
networks,
cooperative win/win
organically interdependent
sustainable health-care systems.

Scientific Artists

Scientists,
like health focused democrats,
have universally applicable intentions
when designing research questions.

Artists,
unlike capital-endowed elitists,
enthuse over unitarian themes
of balance and beauty

Egos,
like healthy ecosystems,
polyculturally thrive

Blue Tolerating Red Intolerance

To Ecological Greens
concerned about tolerating

profound sacredly interdependent differences
between begrudged

Such thinly disguised
severing No!
Not Healthy!
Greens feel
as not really spiritually
mentally
physically
naturally equal,
healthy,
or resiliently safe
to quietly tolerate
while sacred Earth’s
crust grows climatic
unease.

Mere Tolerance,
rather than warm Curiosity,
democratically healthy Empathy,
doesn’t even meet second-class Sympathy

to win individualistic AnthroSafety here
only to inevitably lose global EcoGreen-health now,

To survive this Red EarthDusk
at the Green cost cusp
of non-thriving future panentheistic regenerations
of tomorrow
can never win/win thrive

More than Tolerance,
LeftWing liberal green EarthLovers
seek healthy co-empathic enlightenment
and safely cherished gratitude
for longterm win/win resonant
EarthTribe thrival
of a globally cathected
panentheistic
ecofeminist Green
cooperatively-owned
and managed
co-governing humanity.

This CoPassion,
between bilateral therapeutic communion
and bicameral non-violent communication

Grows safe-felt resonance
recycling polycultural green nutrition values
which revolve

ReGenerate
emergently spiraling

Win liberating health

of EarthTribe safety

rooted in trusted Blue/Green Earth

A big ecosystemic Green Yes!
both Red monotheistic theologians
and Blue panentheistic ecologians
want the promise of anthrosupremacist democracy
to nation-state survive

But,
more than merely tolerating
LeftBrain intolerance

in-between secular Green/Blue
polycultural healing ecologians
and sacred Red
mono-theologians
speaking out
acting up
for a harmful judging

for developing democratic

Small Powers Everywhere

This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine

Wide and longing
for committed dialogue
not surrounded
by elitist debate,

Win/lose games,
Zero-sum asinine assumptions
requiring ego-infested shadows

Resisting win/win opportunities
of healthy
democratic dialogue

Between constituencies,
residents sufficiently humble
to become students together
and unschooled
unprofessional parents
and not totally enlightened teachers
and investigative staff
and neighborhood enquiry co-investors
in this democratic

Thermos On Thames Experiment.

Where the School for Daily Integrity

to practice
practice
compassionate praxis
nonviolent communication
to restore EarthJustice,

Where co-investors co-invite
contributions around ecofeminist friendly circles
just close enough for everyone
to hear all respected neighbors
who will not be Othered

Because we are learning,
through this pandemic of anxiety,
to anticipate more than climate floods
and fears,

Both risks
and opportunities,
dissonance
and resonance,
chaotic cacophony
and complex symphony
entrusting our capacity
for resilient health and safety

Not another negative

Of locals feeling active hope

blighting compassionate

Where silence of executives

means they are deeply listening
for how we can empower each other
through heartfelt consent

And cold dark silence melts,
no longer resisting Truth
to continue postures
of professional

legalistic
quarterly profit-preserving business
without also recognizing long-term threats
of flooding rivers

Straight white patriarchal privileged
incorporated silence means resistance
to sharing inclusive powers
with autonomously dimming lights

Rather than unveiling

repressing fears about surviving future floods
fears

Rather than inclusively hoping

in INTEGRAL MARKERS

calling for this circle
to embrace trust-rebuilding

Feeding

Further afflicting executive professional disadvantage,
