Lone Warrior Rides Again

I wonder how much,
if any, distance
we might uncover
between The Lone Warrior
surrounded by weary white YesMen,
and The Naked Emperor
surrounded by timid white YesMen.

Both Warriors and Emperors
long for those they serve
by ruling over,
by disempowering healthy democratic voices
of critical dissent,
to wake up to their personal
omnipotent
privileged vision
and sacred words,
their supremely authoritative
and defensively authoritarian
win/lose knowledge

That competition to serve as YesMen
YesWomen
YesChildren
is the only appropriate role
for weak serfs;
those with too humble
poverty of spirit
and degenerative win/win nature,=
integrity
responsibility
compassion

Rather than daring
to look into our own Lone Emperor
richly naked eyes
of narcissistic disappointment.

Like all of us,
all Naked Warriors ever healthy long for
is to be appreciated
and played with
by peers
of resonant
compassionate integrity
caring
health wealthing.

The nakedly lonely
Warrior Emperor
of win/lose capitalistic politics
is not what EarthTribe had in mind
as reborn worshipers
cast our famous ballots
for EarthMother’s sacred
non-yeswoman birth

Back
back to enlightenment
of GrandMother Moon.

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.

A Feel for White Privilege

Sometimes I need to hear
what straight white male dominant privilege
what racism
what degenerative ungreen anthro-supremacism
what xenophobia and yin-repression
what homophobia sounds like
and smells sour and acrid and decaying

Before I can fully appreciate,
invest in,
and investigate what regenerative EarthJustice
and multicultural communion
eco-womanist green resilient health care trends,
climate optimizing wealth
inclusively democratic cooperative reweaving
looks like

And feels more like
a robust organic garden

Than extracted
exhausted
deduced-reduced
irreparably severed
fracked
fornicating
capital-hoarding oil and gas fields

Or kleptocratic
partisan
military-industrial business parties

Where not wearing masks
has become a denialist symbol
of health disdain
as compared to financial profit worship,

Climate and culture of wealth-fundamentalists
and anti-SacredEarth evangelicals
and unpatriotic disowners
disloyal to Earth’s healthy democratic constitution.

Sometimes I need
a degenerative religiously fascist reminder
Where there is no healthy EarthCentric culture,
There could be
No resiliently regenerative
multiculturally democratic
healthy climate.

Stretching Health Care

My oldest friend,
and older, too,
has a daily yoga practice
of self-care,
which I would healthier emulate.

But, when I mentioned this
as rich in comparison
with my own brief leg stretches
while tube-feeding my son,
and occasional too brief dancing
and jumping
with my cerebral palsied daughter,

He responds
to my neglect of self care
with self-deprecating acclaim
for my daily investment
in young adult bodies
inhabiting wounded child concerns.

I recognize this response
in literature of sacred messiahs
and family health care martyrs
and extended family matriarchs
and secular ecofeminist mentors
of selflessness,
ego annihilation,
empty nesters,
nonself-investors.

While all such roleplays,
diurnal through eternal,
are counter-cultural,
with redemptive value
and stretching of compassion,

I question their/our capacity for resilience
as even the most cooperative
win/win co-invested economist
would question total eco-investment
through absolute ego-divestment,
outgoing care for health
while bleeding out all internal wealth
of energy
power
light.

Yoga stretches internal minds
to resonantly balance
external bodies
fully re-creating
co-acclimating
resonant resilience.

This stretching,
toning
touching
feeling
balancing
centering
communicating
cooperative empowering
compassionate enlightening
I could do with my son
and my daughter
daily,
and perhaps timelessly,
with sufficient commitment
and imagination,
creativity
and regenerative health
intent to optimize
our shared systemic wealth

Stretching from where we are
toward when we will become
together in shared passion.

Social Health Practices

Natural in and out practices,
like breathing
and heart beating,
are unlike distinctively spiritual bad habits
and corrupt missionary customs
and toxic chosen-people rituals
teaching dark powers feeding LoseLose unhealthy ego-intention
and somewhat lighter powers
of LoseEgo to WinEcoHealthy sublimations,
like surfing oceans
and upstream/downstream healing rivers
of gravity centered Earth
attacking Raptured WhiteMale Supremacists.

So, spiritual practices,
like instinctively natural habits
(including breathing
heart beating
drinking clean water
eating our vegetables),
and multicultural customs
and compassion rituals,
teach powers of WinWin healthy intention
and somewhat darker powers
of WinLose competitive capitalistic pretensions
of egocentric Selves
and chauvinistic Societies

Supposedly democratic Societies
so capitalistically impoverished
we cannot afford public health care,
leaving even our wealthiest
to live with private health beware.

Health,
like pathology,
depends on relationships,
which may be spiritually invested
with compassion,
and are too often unnaturally divested
to feed toxic overpowering dispassion.

Better Public HealthCare Planning

How much simpler
and yet vastly more complex,
diversely resonant,
past decisions to hire the credentialed professional elite
also choices not to hire a charismatic
brown-skinned
ecofeminist,

And how much more resilient
urgently cooperative
corporate win/win covenant repercussions might have been
if we stopped compartmentalizing,
and started intersectionalizing,
creolizing
transubstantiating
synergizing
integrating
regenerating
co-arising and co-gravitating
Win/Win assertiveness with non-violent communication Training,
CoInvestment Practice,
Multicultural Restorative Justice experience,
Truth and reconciliation,
Remuneration of cooperatively-owned health values,
Interdependent ecological and theological merit,
Compassion wealth.

If we could hear her outloud notice:

I feel sometimes angry
sometimes fearful,
sometimes courageous
sometimes curious,
and always disappointed
that I took this vulnerable risk
to transparently offer all that is my leadership gift
and then experience why this is still not enough:

Because I lack leftbrain dominant credentials,
Because I do not speak with cold white patriarchal dispassion,
Because I do not know disconnection as capital-business as usual,
Because I will not despair
of win/win felt outcomes
as if win/lose default unrealistic.

What then,
following this assertively non-violent vulnerability,
this win/win compassion,
this transparent noticing of:

Systemic Win/lose trending toward Lose/Lose monocuturalism,
Systemic racism without racist system conscious intention,
Militarized Patriarchalism,
LeftBrain dominant Either/Or deductive-reductive
Linear cause/effect logic,
Analogical purpose over metaphoric meaning,
MonoCapitalTheology
over Integral HealthWealth Win/Win Ecology?

What win/win compassionate ego/ecotherapeutic truth
and restoring peace
and reconciling EarthClimate Justice
might we more critically return to next?

Perhaps I might find our communal life safe enough
to share:

How angry I am
that I cannot hear our cooperatively-owned anger
that both neoliberal and neoconservations
of military-industrialized capitalism,
that worship of winlose and lose/lose violently transparent intent
continues blatantly budgeting to invest in more war,
in more hate-crimes,
in more automatic death sentences,
in more EarthWealth faster
and deeper
extraction of multigenerational resources,
in more corporate short-term blind investors in win/lose landfalls
instead of cooperative owner-workers invested in win/win health.

I am angry
and terrified,
deeply and widely win/lose disappointed
and lose/lose despairing
when I cannot hear
and feel
and see
and know
our mutual terror
and anger
about this Earth
and Earth HealthTribe
and Positive Energy Democracy CRISIS
of Ego v Eco
of Yang v Yin
of Left v Right
of Thought v Feeling
of Secular v Sacred
of West v East
of North v South
of Elite v NonElite
of White v Black
of Either v Or
of Bipolar v Dipolar
of Competitive Arising v Cooperative CoGravitation
of 1 ZeroZone Nomial v Non-0 Zone Bilateral Prime Relationship.

I am angry
and terrified
internal and external lose/lose climates
worship Capitalism
while marketing greed as
Catholic GoodNews of Holy-Elite Predative Communion.

Sacred meals and global EarthHabitat
separating us in our shadowed silos
of nontransparency
and nonvulnerably hiding the bread and wine reserves
violently defended, if necessary,
codependent absence of integrity,
positive communication,
cooperative EarthClimates
of polypathic health,
polyphonic resonance,
polycultural wealth,
universal sacred cooperative employment
co-invested in mutual warm listening
corporate
incorporated
health-capitalized
rich polycultural paths
truth
ways
means
life
passions

Angry and terrified,
courageous and curious.

White Dad Confession

I have USA raised
and LeftBrain Dominant branded
and capitalized
AfricanAmerican sons
disassociated from Earth
as a healthy,
caring,
inviting habitat for well-being,

Instead too narrowly focused on what Straight White Western Men think,
notice,
value,
monetize,
reductively compete to achieve

Too EgoCentric
AnthroCentric
Xenophobic
Earth-Alienated
to indigenously
timelessly cherish
what unwhite
unpatriarchal
unWestern
unviolent
uncolonizing
uncapitalizing
unhomophobic
Species of healthy wealth regeneration
cooperatively remember
and perhaps even 20-20 re-imagine
sensually
deductively
inductively
thought and felt,
yanged and yinned

ComPassion
Love
Solidarity
Integrity
Resonance
Resilience
Robust Regenerativity

So much more
than life-as-slow-dying objectives like
Avoid prison
Avoid police
Avoid criminalized economic behavior
Avoid shamed and blamed political misbehavior
Avoid Xenophobically Colonizing
Incorporatizing White Western Male
Capital MonoTheistic Ownership

Yet also
Avoid CoOperative CoInvestment
Avoid SacredEarth Communion
Avoid EcoFeminist Persuasions
Avoid Healthy WealthCare Giving and Receiving…

Coming Courageously Home

I’m returning home
from a bag it yourself grocery,
and listening to an African-American novelist
respond to questions,
actual open-ended real NPR questions,
like old school inquisitive journalists once asked
before the polarizing days and nights
of fake right/wrong answer questions
and their concomitant fake avoid entrapment non-responses.

Anyway,
I don’t hear his name,
or the title of his latest published work,
although it may be The Water Dancer
but then again, maybe not.

You would think I would be too embarrassed
to courageously publish
this piece
so carelessly
unsystematically researched.

But, he says,
“We do not do well
to expect courageous behavior
from systems”
or something to that political and economic effect.

Thinking with him about the slavery/property-ownership system,
about capitalization and colonization and commodification systems,
my first response
is to celebrate
this profound and wise soundbite,
both quotable
and true to my own experience
of disempowering monoculturing systems.

But, then I think of several exceptions
to the cowardice incentivizing rule
of authoritarian systems,

Like wildly robust cooperative ecosystems
and even vulnerable volunteer ego-systems,
biosystems zealously loyal to win/win compassionate outcomes
without which we would have no language systems
or experience of courage
or cowardice,
integrity or fragmenting mendacity.

Yet, why does he so boldly say,
and why do I so instinctively and enthusiastically agree,
that systems produce win/lose compromising
servile
bureaucratic timid behavior?
Too often hidden shadows
lurking behind deliberate non-communication.

This free and brave individual
competing against an unhealthy craven society
is a plot line
that seems to go back to Adam and Eve
playing blame and shame
with their Great Systemic Gardener.

Then I realize
it’s not that organic systems are unsupportive of co-invested courage,
it is corporate systems,
monetized systems,
colonizing systems
extractive technocratic systems
producing commodification of secularized values,
reduced from sacred courage and integrity and health

Rather than inviting wealthy health values
into our responsive compassionate selves
working and playing in cooperatively owned
and managed,
responsible and authoritative,
nutritious and nurturing,
courageous and curious
flow systems of commonly-held ergodic energy
good healthy humor
vocations positive,

Invocations wealthy and robust
with co-inspiring witness
courage
listening and speaking unflinching compassion,
candor for self and other mutual health care
embodying interdependent Golden Rules
and zero ego/eco-ratio zones of co-acclimation.

Destroying curious and stressed systems
demands bad humored win/lose bullies
detached
careless
mindless
broken.

Creating resilient robust systems
invites good humored win/win courage
commitment
constantly changing curiosity.

Breathless Change

There seems to be,
at least for me,
an important difference
between wanting to change people
and wanting to heal toxic feelings and beliefs.

When I exhale
into
and on
and under,
side by side
and through
and inside Earth’s climate,
I do not expect to change Earth culture,
but I do hope to heal too passive separation,
lack of co-inviting intimacy.
