Strong Health Defense

Avoiding risk
is not always the best way to feed
and assertively, but not overbearingly, water
resilient opportunities.

Patriarchalism
is not always the best way to build
resilient ecofeminist cooperative opportunities.

It may too often be exclaimed,
“The best offense
is a strong defense.”

Defensive strategies
begin to look remarkably aggressive,
even left-brain overbearingly offensive.

I don’t recall the reverse claim,
“The best defense
is an affluent
effluent offense.”

Probably because this is not necessarily true
to resiliently healthy experience.
Mosquito repellent bracelets
seem more sustainably effective
than bombing my entire lot
in predator/prey life
with toxic insecticide.

And yet,
I’m not sure that the more popular aphorism
is any more true or false.

The most resilient and powerful defense
against suffering and loss,
against climates of pathology,
already feels too self-isolating
timid
lacking in healthy robust curiosity,
too anti-degenerative
to actively regenerate hope
and cooperative faith
and win/win co-passion
and gratitude
for courage to face new frontiers of awareness
with those
and that
now less known,
less connected,
less resiliently
resonantly etched into our global gratitude
attitude experience.

If we were to re-image offensive strategies
to grow win/win economic/political gratitude
as Yang-strength,
universally
mutually empowering;

And, Yin-effluent flow
as defensive ecofeminist opportunities,
invitations to ease off the left-brain dominant
competitive
either/or thinking
enculturing win/lose
inflaming gas,
We might find ourselves with feminists
resisting patriarchal extraction histories
predicting only future Loser economics
and Loser ecological disempowerment
of otherwise healthy robust futures,
Yang-offensive and Yin-defensive balance.

But, resistance without resilient win/win offensives
does not effectively balance our tipping point
double-bound offensive/defensive optimization,
inviting us toward cooperatively-held articulate
resilient healthy purpose,
robustly wealthy sacred meaning
experiencing Yang-health
as Yin beauty-wealth,

Universal offense-wealth
as unitarian defense,
slow-grown communal
ecofeminist
ego-political win/win integrity;
healthy-wealth optimization,
right-brain prominent enculturation,
resilient both-offense-and-defense resonance.

A frog in a patriarchal well
does not know the great ecofeminist sea.

Outside Health Habitats

Many of our most integral
holistic
spiritual,
re-ligioning,
re-connecting,
loyal pursuits
lead us on an individual
inside well-worn faithful path
that monoculturally separates
internal inside climate issues
from Earth’s vast extended family
outdoor voices
of concern and comfort.

Higher multiculturing
multi-generational
poly-regenerational truths
are also deeply sensed
outside inside quiet contemplation,
alone within four straight flat walls,
autonomously separate fragments
of global life/death epic issues

Inside silent still
contemplating past rounds
fired by negative Muses of DeGenerative Change
draws distorting hard distraught
fundamental flat walled lines
boxing in sad egos
trapped inside eco-habitat outdoor stifling
and freezing
toxic separation
within/without
severing our win/win rightbrain inside voice
from our win/lose left outside choices
as if two oppositionally defiant climate issues.

As if we are condemned to an unsustainable
bipolar
duality of mind
more chronically dispassionate
than a singular
creative dipolarity
of heart/mind
felt/thought
trust/truth

Pursuing
inviting our win/win ego/eco-nutritional truths
physically-sensually whole,
while severed from outside voices,
harmonic and dissonant muses,
longing for in/out communion,
diminishes emerging full rhapsodic chords,
Earth-sung moments
achieving wider stretching intimacy
engagement
climax

Integrity with those ecologically around us
theologically and historically within us,
healthy and pathological cultures
win/win and lose/lose,
living and dying climates
and all becomings
win/lose rounds of compromised win/win inside/outside change
in-between harmonic intervals
of full-octave Earth scale resonance,
resiliently polypathic.

Inside creations
grow more resiliently healthy
when surrounded by supportive outside meditations,
medication,
ego’s ecotherapy of healthy choice.

Advent Funerals with Birthdays

The coincidence of Advent
and the HW Bush eulogies
reminded me of DJ Trump’s challenge
to laugh about himself
at least as quickly as he laughs against others.

As compared to any recent US President,
he comes in dead last
for his appropriate humility,
willingness to sacredly listen, empathize with generosity,
and least place for his ability to nurture resilient international peace,
and I am not sure these two challenges
are merely side-by-side coincidental.

Other challenges seem to come with the Yangish motivation required to even become a credible candidate.

Presidential candidates
at least since the Civil War,
if not the Revolutionary War,
are not generally known for saintly sacred listening
to and for healthy multicultural developments,
domestic or foreign,
domestic and yet foreign
to those unschooled in WinWin health-power whisperings,

Noticing positive deviance
advocated and praised and blessed first well-humored,
before negative pedestrian bullying rat races continue
with all paranoid Win/Lose stripes
madly pursued by monoculturing manic political stars.

This Advent day of HW Bush eulogies
was also my oppositionally defiant daughter’s seventeenth birthday.
When I asked her for an allegorical meaning
for the Sleeping Beauty fable
she dismissed the story
as another patriarchal humorless female Messianic staple
for achieving EarthJustice happily ever after
by mere kiss of Prince Charming
after she had done all the heavy emotional lifting
required to rebuild sacred communion
with resilient good humor.

But, she is more interested in discussing Robin Hood
and Little Red Riding Hood,
all the potential messianic Hood leaders
who know predative patriarchal wolves when they see
and hear
and smell them,
even in hooded disguise,
transparently lying on their own grandmother’s bed
and Bibles
and thrones,
about being more committed to democratic good-humored healthy constitutions
advocates for sharing communion with all
before defending their own ego-centric hindquarters.

My fetal alcoholic seventeen year old daughter
knows wolves when she hears them
in government threatening humorless voices
or more entertainingly violent industrial corruption predators.

Feminist Hoods can themselves taste wolf hunger
for royal hunting and riding
and devouring innocent WinWin democratic youth,
separating them from their naive healthy multiculturing forests,
composed by
and for
and of naturally diverse and good-humored habitats.

She can smell satiated predators
growing hungry for vulnerable healthy integrity
stealing back fleeting power from Win/Lose playing wolves
by investing economic and political trust
in those still living natural-humored life
as a normal spiritually connecting re-investment.

Hooded egos still know this spiritually enchanted forest life
as a naturally reconnecting hope
for healthy happier,
more co-redemptive,
EarthJustice futures.

And so the eulogies
and my daughter’s exegetical birthday party progressed
through Cinderella’s king and queendom
at healthier humored EarthJustice hand
after marrying her Prince of Adventuring Revolutionary Peace.

On through the Three Little Pigs
enjoying shared wolf-soup communion
with all EarthTribe’s piglets and cubs,
dolls and stuffed bears
communioned while sitting down grace-fully together.

She hears this same polypathic humored journey
in every diversely sacred narrative
she leads and listens,
smells and tastes and feels
hope for Earth’s wealth
of future everyday health
for democratic constitutions,
disability stories,
eulogies inviting salvific humor.

This coincidence of birthday and funeral
reminds me of our sacred challenges
to laugh communally among ourselves
more than jeering a viral twittering weapon
against the vulnerabilities of others.

After Dinner Reflection

What are you grateful for,
I asked my 420 post-millennials,
not expecting to hear much
beyond Thanksgiving Dinner bounty.

For extended family
good relationships
and even those more challenging
with those still here,

For those no longer more than ultra non-violently visible,
For those yet to become mature healthy adults,
For future generations waiting in our eggs and sperm
Together nurturing slow-grown potential.

And for good food
like apple crisp
fruitful everyday deep-dish respect,
mutual nutritional engagement,
health investments
for gratitude giving
and thanks taking,
slow
and resonant
nourishing 2020 pre-communion.

Gratitude’s Authority

Power’s purpose is shared authority
within a responsive range
of freedom with other responsible neighbors
other reasonable,
non-paranoid,
non-egocentric,
non-violent people
other well-fed and watered animals
other nurturing root systems
powering with other nutritional generations now past
our future integrity potential
power of Here/Now co-authority.

And with each authoritative eco-mission
steps responsible passion
co-responsive left foot, then right,
left…
slow revolutionary emigrating eco-normic-logic
with immigrating ego responses
to what travels between free authority to speak
and bonded responsibility to listen

As issues prioritize
spawn and nurture
double-binding patriarchal missions
with matriarchal passion
wombing EarthTribe re-issues,
challenges for yet unbalanced integrity
of positive/negative energy

Health of all remaining sacred generations
now with burning and decaying secular regenerations
of EarthTribe power’s co-responsible passions

Especially gratitude for ego’s homeless distress
Authority to raise
and nourish
Eco’s responsive nest.

Princess Goldie’s Thanksgiving Dream

Princess Goldie was homeless
somewhere within her Gaian ruling reign.
She walked lost
through this morning’s reforesting project,
learning to spring back together
what had fallen into last night’s cold morbidity.

Princess Golden was hungry
for WinWin rules of nutritional global play.
Her tummy rumbled
as she saw a WhiteHouse
next to a swamp of punishing nettles
not quite distant enough
for peaceful conservation.

She knocked on the WhiteHouse forest floor
but no answer
so she tried the closed door
winning wealthy place
yet losing future healthy space
for hibernating bears and bulls.

Princess Gaia opened what no one had denied.
Then tried to break her fast,
but the first red bowl was too fundamentally hot,
the second, blue, too terrifyingly secular
academic
theoretical
abstractly cold,
while the green third, though smaller heard,
was ideally cooperative communing
just right for immigration.

She tried YangBear’s hard seat of authority
then YinBear’s heart seat of extended family responsibilities
before breaking BabyBear’s imprisonment
in loser retributions
attributions of autonomous sin,
too small for growing winner optimizations
restorations of wealthy health.

Princess Golden
ruled with great nightmarish nappy time
chaotic lack of ecotherapeutic resting school,
then bilaterally governed within matriarchal complex forest
networks of too-soft nurture,
then fell asleep just right
in beds for polypathic dreams
tricameral

BabyBear in-between
PapaBear and MamaBear
speaks within her hibernating open cave
harboring WinWin resolutions
too hot v cold
too hard authority v soft family responsibility
too highly egocentric v holonic ecocentric diversity,
reversity of reforesting reclimating times,
perversity of lack of LeftBrain sleepy time,
university of RightBrain healthy story rhyme,

Princess Goldie’s ego homelessness
reforesting Earth-centering nest.

Love is Healthy

“Give up all hope
for a better [healthier] past.”
Bumper Sticker, on way to church

“Give up no gratitude
discovering a better [healthier] future.”
Homily at Churching Hope Together

“Love [health] is all there is.”
The Beatles

“God [Health] is love.
The Bible

Because anger jumps out upon us
rooted in past images
perpetrating, and yet also victimized by, competing oppression,

Because fear lurks before us
as victims losing bad faith competitions
between LeftBrain expedience
and RightBrain ecological
and theological
prime [health] relational wisdom.

Love is all there is
in each here and now
gratitude for past health,
wherever we can cooperatively re-imagine it,
and hope for future wealth
where we can, together,
enchant light more

To disenchant less fear-mongering
and angry-consuming management
marketed, less effectively now,
to cooperating victims and perpetrators
of past and future climate sabotage

A most unhealthy climate,
inside and out,
to continue dissonantly Occupying,
especially when healthy cooperative climates
are already WinWin Occupying
trusted trusting HereNow hands
and hearts
and feet for occupying healthier climates,
healing EcoSchool sanctuary students
longing to reforest Paradise.
