Sharing Is Caring

Yesterday
I heard someone say
To cure police
and military violence,
we need a NonTrumpian change of culture.

Sometimes revolutionary changes
include conserving feminist elements
of ancient healing cultures;

Intent to reward multicultural inclusion
rather than hanging on to patriarchal
and capitalistic monocultural supremacy–
a culture of exclusion,
excommunication,
and extraction from Earth’s communal nature
and spirit.

Sometimes we need to restore justice
and peace to our own soil
and souls
before we are ready to grow
healthy seeds of primal relationship,
healthcare,
compassion,
into wealthy win/win Paradise.

I have also heard it said,
If you show mercy
to a sociopath,
And if you merely shun
an imperialistic narcissist,
you will only fuel future selfish outrage.

But, I have lived with oppositional defiance
neurologically hard-wired
for adolescent megalomania
and know that punishment,
revenge,
violence,
anger,
fear,
and hatred fuel further sociopathology

Not fertile healing warmth
of transparent and vulnerable attachment,
healthy curiosity,
abundant care,
nonviolent communication,
compassion,
gratitude for opportunities
to explore win/win polycultural outcomes
ecologically healthy
and communally wealthy
erupting into global healing
theological experience of grace.

My daughter
with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
listens by the hour
to a kids song,
“Sharing is caring.
Be kind to everyone.”

But, we train our police,
and our soldiers
and teach our political party
and economic investors
the opposite
retributive
competitive
hostile
paternalistic
capitalistic
win/lose
zero-sum
monoculturing shadow
of ecofeminist multicultural truth
and beauty,
nature
and spirit.

The false peace of tolerating mutual win/lose hostility
is a sin of freedom’s omission
to reconnect with EarthBeauty’s greater gracious half.

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.

Love’s Constant Complexity

Interesting
that Christian theologians
have traditionally agreed
God is unchanging

Because steadfast in love,
loyal in omnipresence,
faithful to omnipotent powers,
all with regenerative intent.

Yet Eastern philosophers
look at these same healthy
safe
empowering traits of Earth’s complex
cooperative
regenerate nature,
and see,
and/or hear,
organically sense,
this universal enlightenment
unveils a metaphysical reality
of sacredly relentless Change.

God is as unchanging
as transient thoughts
and feelings of complex compassion,
responding to Nature’s strength
through flexibility,
unconstant evolution
through constant revolutions of Earth
and all Her interdependent Tribes,
Forms,
Functions,
Flow.

Western patriarchal
capitalistic concern
about a changing God of love
and retributive justice
and unEarthly peace
in a rapturous Heavenly future
may include issues of confusion,
miscommunication
between Nature’s complex cooperative Relationality,
and secular Theories of Relativity.

If everything is relative
to everything else,
then morality,
health,
safety of unchanging natural
and spiritual principles
become shifty,
unreliable,
unpredictable,
potentially dissonant,
evil,
degenerative,
pathological,
dissociative,
terrifying,
terrible
more than terrifically co-relational,
cooperative,
loving,
uniting through mutual flexibility
more than uniform
through unchanging orthodoxy.

But, Eastern nondualistic theory
is rooted in multicultural nonviolent experience
of fluid Relationality,
compassionate cooperativity
of constant win/win healthy natural change
which does not suggest nihilistic chaos
of space v time
or mass v energy

Instead,
constant nuanced regenerative relationship
of time equals space-cubed proportionality,

Zero polyphonic energy
regenerating One
polypathic co-relational Universe

Naturally within
and spiritually surrounding
Earth’s constant/correlative
enlightening co-empowerment.

Spring Dog and Falling Eagle

Spring Dog,
like any terrorist
I’ve ever not quite met,
not seen eye to eye,
not found knowable,
not fathomable,

Out to see the world
and form colonies
to feed his cancered Ego,

Taught his hungry disciples
that success
goes to those who push
most resiliently.

I have worked on fear
we are heading for a confrontation,
where Earth must win
and Spring Dog must
inevitably
depopulate.

Earth’s journey
away from terror
and toward compassion,
experiences success
with those who cooperatively pull
toward nutritious multicultural resonance.

Spring Dog
dismisses EarthMothers
as too weak
and poor in Spirit,

Not yet realizing
His poor in Spirit
is Falling Eagle’s
rich in cooperative MotheringNature.

Summer Otter
mediates between these ways of seeing
slippery slopes toward owning Earth
encourage Spring Dogs
to treat EarthTribes,
human
and OtherWise,
as natural
unspirited,
secular resources,
owned domesticated elements for harvesting
to feed
and heat
his Winter Hawk nest,
for further capital-infestment

Further fueling Falling Eagles
to pull toward more cooperative
reinvestment.

Who Are We?

In the Work That Reconnects,
we have a dialogue exercise
in which Person A asks Person B
“Who are you?”
several times over a few minutes,
as it feels right to reprime this exploratory pump;
then person B does the same for person A.

The person hosting,
listening,
facilitating,
enabling this reiterative question’s redundant possibilities
remains an echo-present listener,
noticing diversity within these multiple evolving responses,
without judging good,
bad,
ugly,
or even indifferent,
quietly hearing rhythms of longing for love
between crippling cracks of anger and fear,
compelling and compiling self with other hatred,
pathology.

The question,
Do all these diverse self-descriptions truly fit
this same love v anger/fear polyculturing elephant?
does not usually arise.

Rather,
we accept these scrabbling voices
and creolizing hats
and complex feelings
and chaotic ideas
and multiculturing beliefs
co-occurring within one bilateral
positive-health v. negative-pathology mindbody
ecosystem,
seeking Alpha/Omega Point zeroistic fullness
holistic richness,
poly-empathic
polymorphic communication,
design,
development,
co-empathic investment,
and cooperative-integrative implementation outcomes
at the end of this elephant’s rhetorical event,
if not sooner.

Why is this not always the case
when we ask our friends and families,
our public sector leaders
and financial sector investors,
“Who do you hope we are becoming?”

What loves are we preparing to invest in
and which past angers
and future fears
to divest of?

What indicators can I give
that I already invest in cooperatively regenerate
health agendas,
nutritional wealth platforms,
designs and win/win intentions,
co-mentoring therapeutic diapraxis,
active multicultural listening
of which I preach so positively to others?

I know you support restoring regenerative health
to our soil,
and preserving clean water,
as I do.

So does it bother you
as it does me,
that growing Earth pathology
is bicamerally euphemized
eulogized
as inevitable climate “change”?

We say we support cooperatively vibrant
healthy local economies
cultures
good humors
and empowering political vitality,
so does it bother you,
as it does me,
to so often hear “either-or” deductive
left-brain dominant reductivism
and wonder why not first cooperatively consider
ecofeminist “both-and?”

I appreciate what you just said,
and I wonder if adding X,
and even Y,
and maybe even YY=XY,
might make your idea even better.
Do you agree,
or maybe you see concerns
for yourself and/or others
new to me,
of which we might more curiously learn together?

Could a cooperative election,
a vacation from judging and blaming and shaming,
a social-neurological peace revolution campaign,
begin with compiling interdependent win/win hopes
and wishes
and loves of Who Are You?
and Me?
as We?

Thereby more smoothly avoiding win/lose stuckness-traps
of fear and anger
and dissonant
pathological constipation
non-outcomes.

Could investing both-and cooperative listening norms
better lead toward co-investing in healthy wealth,
politically co-empowering policies,
procedural and dialogical compassion transparency,
polyculturally healthy design
and development
and wealthy discernment
of poli-eco-logical therapy
v. multi-morphic climate pathology?

Could deep cooperative listening
co-arise local
through global
health outcome networks,
climax ecstasy as mere everyday eco-normativity,
embracing each and every sacred Person A
and B response
to Who are We?

Restoring Inside Justice

Healing Win/Lose EgoNomial Intent

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.

So sings my mitochondrial DNA
when I listen deeply
to all prior matriarchal regenerations
speaking in still
soft
timeless win/win voices

Especially about polycultural outcome opportunities
and monocultural injustice
incoming risks.

I am obsessed with anxiety about climate change.
I own this disability to feel safe
sufficiently secure
to feel confident my granddaughter
will live on a healthier Earth,
will live in a wealthier bicameral empowering situation,
will live for a more cooperative win healthy ecology
to win a truly wealthy
resilient domestic economy.

I’m meeting with some folks from an Episcopal Church
inspired by St. James,
sons of the Lesser Alphaeus
and Greater Zebedee
and James the Just
we could matriarchally say,
and an All Souls UniveralYang
UnitarianYin
BiCamerally Liberal ReAssociation.

All folks who share some concern with Adam Robersmith,
about how we might engage each other
to “Cherish Our World:
Avoiding Despair
in Environmental Justice Work.”
(in “Justice On Earth,” Skinner House Books, p. 47)

My RightBrain ear was listening
with those voices from past generations
speaking in present mitochondrial matriarch-restoring voices
to reassure us of timeless compassion
for EarthTribe’s wealthiest ecofeminist future.

Robersmith: “Watching the public debates about climate change is an exercise in resistance.”

The GrandMothers: Listening to internal dialogue
with changing win/lose climates
actively creolizes resonance.

Robersmith: “It involves a resistance to willful ignorance;
resistance to accepting all statements, especially unsubstantiated ones, as facts;
resistance to the despair that can rise within us as we face the public discourse,
the science,
and the toll taken on human communities.”

The GrandMothers: Cherishing our healing justice process
involves a resistance to willful dissociation
from the intolerable;
resistance to internalizing shame and blame communications,
especially unsubstantiated egocentric
narcissistic
anthropocentric elitism predicting universal injustice
as normless facts;
resistance to NonElite despair
rising within us
as we face StraightWhiteMale dominant
corporate debate,
masquerading as win/win discourse,
discerning and restoring market science
despite the toll taken on multiculturally robust communions.

Robersmith: “Unfortunately,
our individual reactions to human-caused climate change
can also be unhelpful
in terms of finding solutions.”

The GrandMothers: Unfortunately,
individual actions to self-caused
and family-caused
and tribal-caused
and LeftBrain dominant communication-caused
overheating climate change
can also be monoculturally unhelpful
in terms of finding cooperative win/win imagined resolutions.

Robersmith: Some of us are panicking.

The GrandMothers: AnthroSpecies is panicking,
trending toward lose/lose competitive corporate rabidity.

Robersmith: Some are refusing to listen.

The GrandMothers: SWM LeftBrain dominance
continues to violently speak and autonomously act
more than non-violently win/win listen.

Robersmith: “Some are trying to scare everyone into certain behaviors
(whether to reverse or ignore climate change),
and others are just reporting what they think they know.”

The GrandMothers: Some are trying to persuade,
prophecy lose/lose pathology
within everyone
feeding uncertain restraining,
restrictive
retributive justice
and stingy win/lose compromised peace
known as impatient tolerance of further war
violence
divestment away from health
(whether to reverse RightBrain punishing Other
or deny evermore WinElite-LoseNonElite culture not-change),
and others are just reporting
what we think and feel we need safety,
health,
resonant wealth,
resiliently robust compassion.

Robersmith: “With all this debate and reaction,
a problem that is as large as climate change
can cause paralysis,
ineffectiveness,
and despair.”

The GrandMothers: While not listening to what others feel
we cooperatively need,
With all this win/lose political theological debate
rather than win/win economic ecological discernment,
With all this retributive reaction
rather than restorative win/win dialogical communication,
a problem that is as large as climate change
and species mortality
and global extinction of all regenerative energy systems
can cause egocentric paralysis,
competitive win/lose ineffectiveness,
corporate economic despair
about LeftBrain dominant
SWM privileged
violent runaway Win/Lose
Either/Or
Thinking v Feeling
monocultural
monochromatic
monotheistic
monocapitalistic
monoelitist rabidity.

And still inside singsong continues,
a uniting pidgin neurological language
feeling thought integrity:

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.
