Prodigal Parenting

When I read the Prodigal Son story
I do my best to find my own story
empathizing with both brothers
as victims of injustices
learned through self and other punishment
and economically dominant political control
by others,
heavily investing in self-victimizing images.

Then I try to see how this all feels
for their restorative justice and peace-invested patriarch,
advocating for healing motivational causes
and hurtful family-divesting behaviors.

Then I wonder
if I would prefer that Father
to a birthright to own me father
who believes it is his totalitarian sacred vocation
to control my soul’s polypathic directions
and my other sensory erections
and affections
and dis-affections for victimizing victimless-criminals

Which is, by accessible logic
and ecologic,
an oxymoron worthy of evaporation
like degenerative military-intelligence
and like gun-control,

As if the entire pathological point
of investing in hate- and fear-mongering
is something other than to control your situation,
which can only be sufficiently protected by owning
and transporting,
selling and buying and competitively trading,
and seriously investing in guns
as if the U.S. Constitution has nothing else to say
about healthy self-defense,
and growing well-being,
and unity,

Preferably through automated military-grade weapons
for arming your home-militarization school
of and for further ToughLove competitions
in Win-Lose (0)-Sum HardKnocks
especially for unredeemably hopeless criminals
who obviously don’t know Jesus,
much less an omnipresent regenerative Gaia Goddess
of ReStorative Justice and Matriotic Cosmological Peace.

Because you missed that half-day in school,
while out behind the woodshed,
bullied for cranky behavior
or deviant imagination
or verbal risk-taking
rather than being invited
to embrace MotherEarth’s natural-spiritual experiences
and co-investments
in Win-Win Golden Rules,
like water your wilting flowers
and not your exponentially prodigal weeds.

Or perhaps a bilateral Tipping Point resolution
reweaves
hidden in bicameral co-tensions,
intentions,
problems,
issues,
noticing basic ego-eco co-presence,
breathing in and up Yang,
out and down Yin speeds of bilateral restoration flow,
co-acclimating light
from Here’s phylogenic-interdependent fullness
through Now’s hologynic-emptiness…

Actually,
I usually get stuck on empathizing with the Prodigal Son
as victimized and enslaved through retributive punishments
for his victimless crimes,
other than against his own ego-health,
which isn’t wise
but not exactly cause to create a victim either.

I seldom move on to how grateful I would hope to be
to have back my brother who rejected us
back when he might have been more fun
to hang out with.

As for the ReStorative Justice Advocate
and Green CoOperative Farmer Father
for 7-Generations of Tribal Peace,
that co-empathic thought experiment
is way past my pay grade.

How Do We Say God?

How do we say God,
and why does it matter?
If whatever I do say
both is and is not good.

What is sufficient
to define a Creator?
The Sufis remind us
we face God each way.

How do we fix this
divine restoration?
To put back together
what anger tears apart.

Why do we want peace
and not just between terrors?
If God is our Alpha
then hate’s not Omega.

Why do we punish?
Our great hurts need healing.
How are we judging
those we have not yet faced?

How do we see God,
and why could this matter?
If health’s stretched out planning
builds more arms creating splatter.

If God is for health care,
and how could S/HE not be?
Then Love can’t be measured
in automated artillery.

Where is our rich soil
and how have we tilled it?
Or have we over-drilled it
for more blood and gore?

Why do we say God
and how does it matter?
For restoring Christ’s graced peace
sacred seeds grow together.

 

 

These lyrics more or less work with “Foregiveness”, by Susan Werner, on her The Gospel Truth CD.

BornAgain GrandKids

Your grandfather wants to apologize
not just for voting for Donald Trump,
but also for praying he would continue in Presidential Office
with YHWH’s fertile blessings
of sacred ChristCentered Hearts and Minds,
economic and political leadership of divine Retributive Judgment.

Honey,
I think you’re about to lose them
with this punishing narrative.
Why don’t you just tell them he’s sorry
for loving Donald’s Mutual-Assured Destruction,
Lose ecologically now to Lose again economically later
verging off toward
Oops! I guess I blew-up and out the grandkids
without future healthy
cooperative
multiculturing generations
of most any species.

Most any, yes…
but human nature-spirits have already received
redundant fire and water and hurricane warnings,
Prophecies of Awesomely Awful Climate Pathologies
to come in time for our grandkids,
and their probably not bothering with any kids,
and then possibly a faithful remnant
of their potential grandkids,
hopefully more Win-Win acclimated.

So I need to let them know
this was a fault shared by a large vocal USA minority
of supremacist
patriarchal
monotheistic fundamentalists
with retributive justice is JealousGod on their fixated minds
building toward revolutionary
HellFire and Brimstone eruptions
of global ecopolitical conflagrations
and species-generalized holocaust.

Something like that,
yes dear.
Try to tell them we’re sorry
about the Trump thing
without also scaring off their grand-kids
and possibly their Win-Win cooperative grandkids,
more polypathically ecopolitical
and into ReStorative Healing Justice as Grace,
Matriotic Earth Peace,
CoMessianic Judeo-Christian Communion
of Nature-Spirit EarthWonder
and DeMilitarizing Awe,
Bodhisattva PolyCultural Outcome Health and Safety Planners
and Advocates
and Warriors for Global Peace ReStorations,
more integrated ZeroSoul binomial Economic Health
as political EarthTribe ecological wealth optimization,
and other Sacred MotherEarth Ego/Eco CQI Outcomes,
bilaterally Bayesian trend
(0)Sum
Win-Win ReGenerative Outcomes.

Yeah,
but wouldn’t want to scare off the fundamentalist
anti-intellectual great-great-great grandsons,
and further repressed
suppressed
depressed granddaughters,
anti-democratic
anti-egalitarian
anti-humane-divine nondualism,
anti-multicultural
dualLeft-darkRight
totalitarian bad-faith pathological remains
of a once great society.

By then
we’ll have this sacred species as EarthTribe Future investments down
and up to mystical-mythical-ecological confusions,
chaos and complexity Confucians,
or maybe PostMillennial Taoists
of and for ReStorative Justice
and Global Green EarthTribe Peace,
through mutually assured health and safety
timeless and eternal love,
which is seldom discovered
or delivered,
evolved
or much less invited
or even sustainably revolutionary
at the end
of a Lose-Lose (0)Sum gun.

Not to mention the unlikely prospects
of restoring humane-divine love
through an entire global jihad
or HolyWar
or JustWar retributive punishment theory
for Fallen Natures
of competing Infidels.

Honey,
you’re scaring the grandkids again,
and shrinking the great great great grandkids
beyond restorative dimensions of ecojustice
and peaceful dreams.

Sorry love.
OK, kids,
bedtime begins now.
Time to put on your sackcloth and ashes,
and please wait until morning
to report all Revelationary Nightmares,
dualdark evil-live horses,
deductively dominant cosmological disinvestments
away from good-faith truth and trust-telling,
watering the anti-gospel weeds
and not watering to bloom polyphonic flowers
singing full-octave colors
of Grace greets Karma.

Speaking of Karma…

And lack of grateful Grace…

I wonder how the healing service is going
over at the King James Bible Church
for all those Donald Trump voters.

Kellyanne’s Fake Constitutional Rocks

“The Second Amendment is a bedrock principle of our Constitution…”
Kellyanne Conway

Dear Kellyanne,

Thanks so much for standing in
for the apparently unavailable
and dull, predictable Constitutional lawyers,
and the U.S. historians,
and also the legal philosophers
of social justice and moral ethics
with your own fresh minority opinion
of one NRA wanna-be lobbyist.

Before I saw your latest entry
in the OutRageous JunkNews competition,
which has become more hotly contested
as of post-Trumpian patriotic late,
I had actually,
you know,
read, once or twice, what the Constitution itself
has to say
about what are its own bedrock principles.

Here are our bottom-line goals
as stated in the Preamble itself:

1. “to form a more perfect Union”
which would probably leave out most forms of investment in domestically competing violence,
fear-mongering,
and even anti-feminist anger-mongering.

2. “justice”
which does not seem to be later defined as
private and public sector arms racing
to see who can first acquire the most
or biggest
or fattest
or fastest
or longest ballistic toys.

3. “Tranquility”
with a capital T
not a capitol Trump Business As Competitively Usual
as you might spell that word,
a synonym, here, for Peace,
with a capital and capitol P,
for Please could you get over your unprincipled verbal garbage
for just one contemplative retreat,
it would do you,
and possibly those around you,
so much ecotherapeutic good.

4. “common defence”
Not spelled UnCommon Offense
amongst our otherwise Unioning selves,
so specifically,
explicitly,
clearly,
transparently excluding domestic rights to bear or bare ballistic arms,
not even talking about knives,
or sling shots,
or those really big rubber bands
that my brother used to snap me with
on the back of my own redneck patriarchal ass.

Which is why we had to have a Second Amendment
because the bedrock principles of the Constitution
explicitly exclude
what we had to include
in the Second Amendment,
because, unlike the First Amendment,
which actually is, arguably, redundant with remaining bedrock principles,
the Second Amendment most extravagantly and democratically and transparently clearly is NOT:
“promote general Welfare”
“Liberty” to the signers and us, and our “Posterity” kids too
which are the real original health care giving and receiving framework
or bedrock
for the standard democratic justice terminology of that time,
as well as our own post-millennial time
and mental space
and nation growing regenerative place,
and not so much over-investment in degenerative ballistics.

So,
if by “bedrock principle”
you mean seminal values
of the Signers’ Historically Manifest Intent,
on one side of recorded history
you have the Preamble
then the Body of the Constitution
then the First Amendment.

Then you have the
“Oops, British rights of citizens to self-defensive armaments
within domestic borders,
which,
by the way,
did not necessarily include the right to bear arms across state lines,
or even county lines,
or even outside one’s own village,
or even outside one’s own property,
but, regardless,
is hopelessly outweighed in the competition for
“Most Bedrocked Constitutional Principle
for Preserving this More Perfect Domestic Union”
by most anything on the Preambling list above.

Which,
actually, I think is good news for you.
Because if the right to shoot at each other
were a bedrock principle
rather than the responsibility to play nice,
and talk non-violently correctly as compassionately,
and cooperate with as much good-humor as bicamerally possible,
then your own enfranchised health,
happiness,
and matriotic prosperity
would be in some serious LeftBrain-RightWing fascist shit,
counter-historically speaking.

By the way,
did you happen to notice
the Constitution’s summary remarks?
just before the last Article on Ratification,
“…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

What is not defined is the difference,
if any,
between a religion
and idol or icon worship.

When I read bedrock justice and peace principles,
and think about them,
and grow passion about them
as explicitly documented Constitutional original historical intent,
and then I read your statement
that the Second Amendment
isn’t really an amendment at all,
it’s more of a gun-toting religious faith
in Up Yours! Better Government Through Ballistics!
it makes me have second thoughts about how far we can reasonably stretch the First Amendment,
to protect non-violent and co-responsible and informed speech
to also cover
religious allegiance to violence
and irresponsible blabber.

The Gardener and the GunShop Owner

Degenerative issues for the gunshop owner
are also regenerative opportunities from the gardener.

Lack of civil civics lessons slacked
for small persons made of evil
is also opportunity to learn love’s live,
is evil respelled backward.

Please stand as you are able
to sing along in your best country western anthemed voice
for more love songs and less unchallenged microphones
feeding fears and angers that some people,
quite country simply,
just perversely choose to become psychopaths
and violently mentally ill,
and thereby wicked evil.

I heard him on the radio
the gun shop owner said
You can’t undo this evil.
Some folks will always think
you and yours would be better off dead.

I heard the gardener
when she said
It must be different where you’re from.
We are taught to feed to deeply live
and stop watering the weeds.

If your kid were at a concert
which would you rather hear?
The gun shop owner’s hopeless evil
so feed us more ballistics faster
or the gardener’s hope to live
through composting root systems
to dig in richer,
warmer schools and families,
nations and estates,
corporations and incarnations
with better healthing vital ballast?

What might we do yet together
if those first two years of school
our teachers taught Make Love Not War
just like the Golden Rule?

I wonder if we’d still require
two years defacing
and refacing
and effacing anger management
through better ballistic bureau owners
recruiting basic training for military violence industrialization
if we simply fed more let love live
to younger generations
so less water for those growling evil weeds.

You can’t talk with a mike to a man
with a shotgun business in both hands
but you can sing and dance
with a WinWin boy
before he’s been watered to want
to fire a gun,
just for self-bruising kicks.

Now our minds might be as one
love for sacred Mother Earth
with our Golden Ruling Sun’s
who don’t make no evil bankrupt children.

Somebody,
please,
turn the gunshop owners microphone off.
Turn off the electricity,
and their/our flooding waters
of overwhelming volume
for mutually accepted hate
and fear
without so much as calculating anger,
not so better managed
with ballistics
should you learn this golden gymnast rule ballastics
of Earth’s yummy rich fed gardeners.

What might we do yet together
if those first two years of school
our teachers taught Make Love Not War
just like MultiCulturing Golden Rules?

Which one is pathological propoganda
and which is nutritional health enculturation?

7 Reasons to Not Talk Gun Control

Today we have a list of seven best reasons
not to even think about talking gun control
after an automatic rifle out of control
critical event,
one for each day of the week.

Monday:
The automated guns might hear us,
and continue automatically firing themselves
into more innocent bystanders
despite the lack of any specific humane intent.

Tuesday:
We will not need to hear the full boring list
of restraining illustrations and constraining anecdotes
about how local solutions
continue failing to deliver needed global non-violence resolutions.

Wednesday’s Child:
We will not have to consider the remote possibility
that global non-violence,
rather than automated ballistic “shoot first” associations
and public and private sector incorporations,
is what international political leaders might reasonably also list
as appropriately adopting sane international WinWin relationships.

Thursday’s Continuing MalAdaptive Child:
The remaining non-gun owners
might not hear the insanity of supporting gun silencers
as a conspiracy to make even more money
selling further violence
than trying to more humbly sell peace.

Fried Out Day:
The remaining gun owners,
within this public sector silence,
buy more time to refuel,
resupply,
propogate,
become fertile and multiply automated death
and dismemberment technologies,
in a world that is already suffering from overpopulation anyhow,
despite all those evil abortions,
and growing hurricanes and floods and tsunamis
and polar melts
and air pollution
and water pollution, etc.
Maybe if enough of us start aiming at each other,
we can shoot our way out of this overpopulation problem.
God knows,
we have been trying long enough
through Ballistic Business As Usual.

Saturday’s Sabbath:
Business As Usual is perhaps the best reason not to even talk about military industrializing civilian controls
after an isolated automatic rifle out of civic and civil control
uncritically
unanalyzed event.

Full Sunday:
There is less money to be made from knives,
and poisons,
and fake piety of
God bless you
in face of historic over-investment in violent rifles
to take out your kid;
the one God blessed you with
until death came
from living in a nation-state
where the simplicity of one gun-one bullet,
in case of emergencies,
could never be enough
for Second Amendment Advocates
of their First Amendment Rights
to speak and act violence or non-violence,
without responsibility or accountability
for which is which.
