Swamp Babies

When participating in a HealthCare Future Search,
you are invited
to explore a personal timeline
as well as a global timeline
of critical healthcare events
in your past,
present,
and future.

HealthCare personal and political
and nurture-investment learning
begins early and ubiquitously
for new born and reborn ZeroZones
of all species

But, one of my earliest entries
on any personal and political timeline
is self-nurturing stimulation,
raptures,
wonders and awes,
paradise masturbation,
draining the compost swamp.

My parents were missionary-positioned
midwest monogamously StraightWhite Privileged
Republicans
but also underprivileged small family farmers
and matriarchal gardeners,
themselves raised
watered and fed
by missionary-positioned dairy farmers,
but also experts at cooperative HealthCare technologies
milking the tits of cows–
draining their nurture-swamps.

I recall lectures against premarital sex
out of contractually marketed wedlock
only for privileged orthodox swamps,
Yet total silence
on the non-subject of self-stimulating
HealthCare management
to avoid blueball
redblooded pressures,
competing tensions
with cooperative predilections
of and for belonging longing.

A much later Grace entry
on my personal gratitude HealthCare timeline
was becoming a parent,
When suddenly,
unexpectedly,
what was good for my firstborn son’s HealthCare
became what was also good enough
for my personal post-adoption
HealthCare for family swamps planning.

If sleeping through the night
was not in his best nutrition-feeding interest,
then not sleepy mine either.

Fortunately,
to place this co-redemptive miracle on my Future Search timeline
does not require I can explain how it arrived
remarkably self-with-SacredOther
co-nurturing stimulation.

My journey from competitive intrapersonal HealthCare
toward cooperative interpersonal newborn health-wealth care
feels as quickly under-capitalized normal
as an overnight co-adoption placement,
a co-revival natural-spiritual experience,
a reborn together rapture
from which I never fully recovered
my strictly autonomous intrapersonal swamp–

If only because isolated decaying swamps,
although immensely fertile,
are not healthy long-term habitats
for mammalian autonomy–
way too many bugs
and the water is unthinkable.

 

The first entry on my global cooperative HealthCare timeline
is noticing WinWin HealthTrends
As alike as we are polyculturing adults,
newborns of all mammalian DNA-prescribed species
are much more HealthCare giving for
and receiving from parents
and teachers
and WinWin Future Mentors

Sometimes cooperatively draining our pathological swamps together
and sometimes competing too secretively autonomous
in supremely unspoken self-governance,
our personal shame
hiding within global swamps of politically toxic blame.

My second global FutureSearch entry
in our cooperative HealthCare timeline,
is when I also noticed
that newborns emerge from nutritious swampy wombs
to hopefully return to elder compost swamps.

Swamps highly fertile,
regenerative environments,
richly resilient OpenSystems
and deeply resonant with polypathic life,
from early spring rutting croaks of bullfrogs
through winter’s red cardinal love song.

ReBorn cooperative HealthCare
draining and timeline composting
personal through global
under-valued swamps
hosting lower risk sacred revival
for higher opportunity secular thrival–
WinWin EarthTribal.

Earth First

America First
is a RightWing monocultural intention
currently championed by Trumpians
and Republican Aristocracy of Evangelism
Tea Partiers,
by xenophobic paranoids
and sociopathic fascists,
by the economically blind
deaf
and angry
bigoted
terrified shouters;
just the opposite of dumb,
yet not cooperatively mindful either
of our global polycultural DNA roots
with universal democratic intent
toward international Golden Rules.

First,
“America” does not equal USA.
And America is even more than just North America,
including Central America,
now framed by a RightWing mental-spiritual Wall
against Mexico,
and, as for South America,
as any good Republican Catholic
(which may be a political-religious oxymoron)
or Protestant Evangelical
(which may also be a BadNews/GoodNews oxymoron)
will quickly remind us,
is the Wildly Wrong Hemisphere,
suspiciously socialist,
spiritually ambivalent,
even for a God
who was reputed to love
the entire Earth, equitably,
and is HimHerSelf more of a cooperativist,
in HisHer radically magnanimous love,
than an isolationist,

God does not keep all the best toys
for those awaiting
our long promised,
yet perpetually delayed,
Rapture.

This anciently felt Win-Win Rapture itself
has become more of a monocultural Win-Lose harvest
of pro-life WhiteHat born-agains
who define pro-life quite narrowly
to advocating for yet unborn human life
at risk of abortion,
without mentioning other
politically
and socially
and ecologically
and economically climatic abortions
on their peculiarly NonRapturous Way.

Also at risk of AmericaFirst monoculturalism,
which confines promised Rapture of Earth’s economy
to the competitive supremacy
of U.S. Trumpian BusinessAsUsual Elites,
the big and fat OnePercent
of our global colonizing US wealthy persons,
investing heavily in AmericaFirst policies,
which,
if more honest,
would be called
Top 1% of U.S. First and Last
PatrioticWinners v MatrioticLosers.

AmericaFirst
is a sugar-sweet way of saying
“The rest of y’all don’t matter.”

This is not the long promised Christian Rapture
of strong and healthy polyculturing democracy
as might possibly have been hoped for
by Constitution signing ForeFathers
born of more ecologically sound ForeMothers,
perennial gardeners and organic farmers
who were not, themselves,
particularly enamored of the top aristocratic OnePercent
in their 99% American nation-building immigrant time.

AmericaFirst
like all monocultural elitist intentions
and political investments,
forgets that economic and political walls,
once built,
work both ways,
and work against polycultural health
of economies
and political democracy of energy,
and positive nutrition ourselves,
ecology of global health care giving
and good Rapturous ecstatic climate receiving,
even for the Elite 1% of U.S. aristocracy,
and their potential 7th Generation grandchildren.

AmericaFirst
is aggressively rooted
in an inhumane replacement
of sacred restorative healing,
democracy’s inclusive vocation
of One Nation UNDER a Loving God,
within a LivingGod,
of and for a Positive Healthy PolyCulturing-Outcome God,

Setting aside secularized retributive justice models,
rooted more in God’s divinely-inspired Anger
as also Wrath against those who are too tolerant
of death
for Earth’s NonElite future generations
than actively pro-life of Earth
as iconic of all HerHis sacred forms
and flowing healthywealthy functions
toward regenerating Sacred EarthFirst.

We have no Christian-Republican Rapture on its way
if and when AmericaFirst finally arrives,
aborted from Earth’s diverse sacred natures
and cultures
and spirits
and dead on distinctly non-rapturous
anti-conservative of life arrival.

This is not just about climate change;
this AmericaFirst fake-rapture threat
predicts a future of ongoing
degenerative
climate pathology.

AmericaFirst is a punishing pathology
against all;
including the Elite U.S. OnePercent.

According to the Institute for Policy Studies,
already the twenty wealthiest U.S. citizens
have slightly more wealth to share among themselves
than do the lower 50% of U.S. residents,
who,
by the political way,
live disproportionately in RedStates
currently under advancing assault
by hurricanes and floods,
fires and tornadoes,
drought and shrinking aquifers,
chemically saturated rivers
and increasingly barren soil
and uprising polluted oceans.

But, hey,
what the self-inflicted hell;
AmericaFirst, right?
Never mind about Old School
restorative justice and peace,
nutritional polyculturing outcomes,
pro-sacred life
rather than limited to suboptimizing
anti-secularized death,
while supposedly worshipping a God
of EarthCreation and Love.

These are outmoded democratic ideals
for a healthy multicultural environment,
EarthFirst economy
and political subclimates.
And who retains any good faith
in such liberating,
but sadly fading,
Win-Win pipe dreams?

Shallow Mountains: Deeper Valleys

Reading U.S. Political Platforms

First I read Senator Obama’s Audacity of Hope
to strengthen cooperation
between Left and Right Wings
of our patriotic-matriotic equivalently empowering Eagle.

Then I read CEO Trump’s Crippled [Business of] America:
How to Make America [Rich Business] Great Again
by crippling our stronger multiculturing left wing
so it is more anemically shallow in monoculturing lack
of strengthening balance,
with struggling right wing mutual non-violence values
becoming pervasively fractured.

Given this clear choice
between Win-Win Left and Right ecopolitics
and Lose-Lose crippled Right against deeper Left,
I simply could not find much of a balanced choice
between true Earth patriotism
and fake USA-FascistFirst PATRIOTIC JINGOISM
bought and sold by Win-Lose PreMillennial Colonizers
without respect for Win-Win Postmillennial Creolizers.

Crippling mendacity
is political fascism
through propaganda
and fake piety,
religiosity mistaken for authentic spiritual experience,
maturity,
wisdom,
discernment,

Healing hope
is cooperatively audacious,
our only good multiculturing faith
for healthy future generations
sharing Earth’s revolving blue-green banner
of permaculturally wealthy fertility.

Regenerativity abounds
rebounds
through healthier climate and landscape choices,
more internal with external,
ego with eco,
yang with yin;
not YANG to cripple yin even more.

Trump’s offer is to become our CEO BreakAnotherLeg Surgeon,
50% voted in charge of weakening both competing and dissonant Wings
by running against younger yin authors and voices,
audacious platforms rooted in multiculturing hope.

Trump’s blatant supremacist model
for growing self-engorging power
appears as pre-millennial dated
as does good and healthy hope
and bicameral ecopolitical faith
appear post-millennial hopeful.

This crippling, mountainously monstrous, face
of Trumpian anger
and fascist-feeding fear,
could not be more clear
as just the opposite direction
any sane and rational sacred-engaged population
would choose to Earth and Heaven go
with active multiculturing Paradise hope
for humane-divine cooperation
over further secularing competitions,

For restorative healing powers
over retributive trauma enforcement,

For inclusive great and dense and deep spiritual Loves
over shallows of totalitarian terror.

Humbling Gratitude

Monasteries,
both Western and Eastern,
traditionally practice

The Way of Poverty,
A trusting Truth of Chastity,
And a Life of Obedience

To both spiritual and natural authority,
laws,
rules,
practices
both political and ecological
within their diverse sectarian cultures.

Yet this tripartite theme
of natural/spiritual discipleship
follows a nutritionally mentored practice
of both Western Messianic Princes of Peace
and of Eastern Bodhisattva Matriarchal PeaceWarriors

Preaching a Way of Gratitude,
Practicing a Truth of Compassion,
Projecting a Life of harmonic Humility

Within and Without;
within human nature
and also throughout all Earth
as SacredHome, oikos, Eco
with many subclimates,
diverse landscapes,
interrelated species
of and for Earth’s Gaian sacred nature.

A Way of Gratitude
embraces
a Life of profoundly democratic Humility,
avoids plutocratic ego-supremacist hubris,
and grows most abundantly within multiculturing Truths
of compassionate Win-Win choices.

Humility of Ego
avoids fake piety,
finds fake patriotism profoundly sinister and unfulfilling,
grows co-passionate within gratitude’s SacredHome embrace.

Gratitude of Ego
grows polyculturally co-invested with Humility
in awe of all sacred Earth’s Regenerative Natures,
Cultures,
HealthyClimates,
Wealthy-Fertile Landscapes.

And here,
in this sacred EarthSpace and Time
of timeless mythos-logos NOW,
YangLeft EgoCenters
and YinRight EcoCentrists nutritionally embrace
co-passionately nurturing,
restoring ego-peace as also eco-justice.

So too, individual MotherTrees
of Life and Death
reforest Earth’s ecojustice
and cooperatively matriotic peace.

Not merely a Win to Lose
Way of economic poverty for some,
but Win-Win Truth of compassionate wealth for all SacredCreation,
Life of natural-spiritual obedience and abundance
within ecological and ethological laws of meaning
purpose
ritual
celebration
polypathic wonder.

Within full-diastatic
CoMessianic-Bodhisattva harmonic multicolor,
LeftBrain science of cooperative economic humility,
RightBrain arts of compassionate polyculturing health,
conjoined within
positive good health Faith
actively restoring ego/eco-therapeutic Win-Win gratitude
incarnating Sacred Gaia’s karmic Grace.

Playing Old Maid

I recall a card game
probably extending back past the 1950s
called Old Maid.

There was also Authors
and a few other choices
less popular with me.
But Old Maid sticks in mind
as blatantly sexist
and ageist
and, for a country kid
in redneck rural Republican Michigan,
the most fun
of admittedly limited card playing options.

Whoever was stuck holding the Old Maid
at end of game
was the biggest loser,
for obvious reasons.

Who would want to be associated
with that old and useless appendage?

National politics in the U.S.,
all about the marketing, purchase, and sale
of two-year
and four-year terms of public greed responsibility,
increasingly reminds me
of OldMaid gamesmanship.

And, yes,
I don’t really mean gamepersonship.

This game for avoiding loss
of responsibility and authority,
loss of face
rather than gain of grace,
embracing mutual Wins
of shared commitment to health
and cooperatively prosperous safety,

This game in which the OldMaid
is played by aging fossil-fuel industries
played-out too often militarized
ballistic violence,

These OldMaid industrial choices
have most ballistically justified
plutocratic wars
inviting young,
and often most marginalized,
players
to live with losses to OldMaid political stuckness
in the name of patriotic duty,

Although not matriotic integrity
to our own healthy hands
for better Win-Win games
and political
and economic
and personal
and family therapy strategies,
less violently impinged by nationalistic traumas,
fear of losses
holding OldMaid over-industriously held cards.

No one wants to be in unlovely public office
when the last drop of oil
and last glistening gasp of gas
wears through now useless OldMaid pumps
and pistons,
unhappy triggers
and transdegenerational switches,
unlubricated OldMaid economic bitches.

No one wants to be in office
holding the last OldMaid dry-humped card
from a 1950s stacked deck
when 2020 revisions
change climate changing hands
into feminist story books
of how our generation
deliberately and stubbornly chose,
like stiff-necked self-chosen people
of OldMaids and PatriarchalMen,
counter-intuitively choosing the climate pathology card,
fascinated by our own death
and the death of our habitat
and the death of any future
of humane proportion and design,
rhythm and pattern.

When we have so many post-millennial cooperative Win-Win options
to actively hope
and act
and restoratively plan
and therapeutically draw climate health
for both ego and eco justice
and global peace for all,
including sacred Elder Matriotic Maids.

If only Old Feminist Maids and Matriotic Men
had written all required history
and civic lesson school books
and ecopolitical philosophy texts
and medicinal prescriptions
and legislated cooperative multicultural ethics
lesson plans
to practice
practice
practice
cooperation,

I wonder if having the Elder Matriot card
would have been how to win our Win-Win game,
and to do so,
would require letting go of all Old FakePatriot cards
of plutocratic,
and often patriarchal,
Lose-Lose economic-ecological exploitations,

Also post “ClimateChange”
known and named
as habitually competitive ClimatePathologies
longing to restore ClimateHealth.

What Might Be Seen

Predication
greets sacred promise
for restoring peaceful justice.

Omnipresent predication
greets polypathic promise
for restoring love as grace-filling justice.

Omnipotently disintegrative powers
of HellFire prediction
too quickly settle for monoculturing retribution,
punishment
due to FallenNature’s past spiritual sins
in absence of paid-forward
gift economies
for notnot co-arising
Sacred Win-Win Grace.

This monoculturing
monotheistic Win-Lose path
is littered with remains,
fossils for patriarchal still-burning altars
and nuclear domestic ballistic economies
of traumatic retribution
rather than therapeutic salvation.

Even before nature-spirit polytheists emerged,
First RNA Nation Trees
within continental forests
held seasonal Earth renewal ceremonies,
water baptism healing circles,
cooperative nutrition networks.

Original forest societies
creolized healthy soil and air and water
rather than colonizing frontiers
with monoculturing missionary zeal
of empire-building vines and weeds
staging a violent strangling coupe
producing degenerative global outcomes.

Trees do not need,
or benefit from,
Fake-Messianic entitlements
to own appropriated property for a good public cause,
to enslave for a just war,
to exploit for a better financial return,
to colonize for greater nation-state empowerment,
to piratize the poor on behalf of the Pharisees,
to vanquish and destroy
Earth’s indigenous sacred wisdom.

A Nationalistic Manifest Destiny
not informed by natural-spiritual forest wisdom,
cannot be truthfully called
a Sacred Manifest Destiny
for all living residents.

Our continental
and trans-continental histories
of LeftBrain conquest
are also herstories
of RightBrain creolization,
of cooperative interrelationship understories,
of EarthCentric giving back integrity of ownership
to cooperatively invest
less in competitive EmpireBuilding,
Yang Triumphant Wealth
of YinForest sacred virgin oppression.

Nationalistic flags do not wave
for deep matriotic relationships
within and among forests.
Patriotic flags
are for naming and claiming,
for blaming and shaming Other’s flagging lack
of uniform patriotic competing relationships.

What Patriarchs
have claimed for HolyEmpire’s Manifest Destiny,
MatrioticForests resonate
with HolyPromised Land
already here
before RedCoats
lost to Blue and Grey UnCivil Commodification Coats
on our way toward military-industrialized camouflage
uniformly dissonant chaos
covering up fake-patriotic absence of integrity.

Purist WhiteHats and SupremacistCoats
waving flags of ownership
while killing native health
of older and wiser forests.

We renamed our sacred forest spirits
after mortal colonizers
with violently protected self-manifest destinies
giving themselves legal rights,
so remarkably generous!
to blow up natural-spiritual interdependence
in just a few degenerative decades,
denuding any sacred signs
of our humane-divine
extending family sacred interrelationships.

Green pastures and healthy waters
of supremacist patriotic destiny
are threatened by natural-spiritual deep relationship
now learning our humane-divine
left-right sacred balancing place.

Sensing LeftBrain entitlement
is no reasonable substitute
for RightBrain sacred authority,
responsibility,
accountability
to not degenerate Earth’s forests
and polluted oceans.

Democratic rights
and publicly agreed Constitutional wrongs
are on behalf of
cooperative sacred Welfare
of all enlightened resident Tribes and Species,
prohibiting rights to kill
as ballistic wrongs,
violently self-sadistic,

Far from actively seeking restorative EarthPeace
and True-Messiah CoRedemptive Justice.
