Empowering Integrity

Verbal microaggressions
[You are a liar!]
neglect non-violent humanity
as macroaggressions
[uninvited explosions with intent to kill],
rather far beyond verbal bullying,
physically retaliate against abusive inhumanity,
seldom too fastidious
about recognizing collateral damage
to people
planet Earth.

Critical mistrust
[how does this defend democracy?]
may yet remain mindful of Golden Rules,
active hope for our own
and Other’s cooperatively-owned
healthy future

In a wide and deep in-between room
State bounded by blind trust
unearned by prior relationship experience
[forgiving kleptocracy
while continuing to empower future theft]
are more typically associated with learned win/win memories
in prior associated categories of relationship
[I suppose censure could be merciful shaming]–
these become compassionate benefits,
compromised by doubt
[requiring apology to global victims
suffering from narcissistic abuse
of climate-healing powers].

But self-promoting oligarchy
leads more robustly toward active distrust of those who
and consistently play win/lose
[with well-being, health, and universal prosperity
stipulated goals of democratic constitutions]
apparently too comfortable with their own retributive
disempowering addictions
to see and hear and smell and taste
ecological and theological win/win health benefits
of restoring interdependent peace

For liberal love resilience
and conserving resonance
through cooperatively co-invested justice–

Non-violently impeaching win/lose compromises
against democracy’s multicultural health benefits
without lose/lose
micro- and macro-aggressive doubt
about what behaviors support healthier democracy
and what responses further feed pathological plutocracy.




Gadflies and HoneyBees

Where to begin
in the middle of cold and dark
winter’s solstice,
healthy green life’s time
of impeachment,

Where does this all rightfully
and left sacredly end?

These are expansive gadfly questions,
issues of complexly dipolar reason,
leftbrain dominant
either-or thinking
we are either thinking or feeling
rather than conscious of both,
and neither sufficient
without the necessary other.

and passion
win competitive evolutions
only to lose cooperative revolutionary
dipolar and co-arising,
bipolar and co-exhaling.

We dissociate cognitive reason
from rightbrain’s more original intuitive-sourced feelings.

like balanced Taoists,
advocate our 7th Principle
about interdependent
co-passioning webs
of non-violent life communing love,
cooperative empowerment,
bicameral egopatriarchal/ecofeminist
NonZero-Sum Win/Win contextual
counter-capitalism multicultural,
WinLeft’s liberal egolove
to WinRight’s healthiest conservational ecolife.

So, let’s not continue
beginning with a full-spectral blue
and red
and ultra-violet synergy,
but confine our response
to questions not yet leftbrain asked

And notice, instead, dark and light green,
in-between sunny courage yellow
and curious and long-hidden orange,

Merging and emerging
what comes after RightWing Red depressions
of Earth’s healthiest well-being values.

If Earth’s children are, sometimes
not particularly egocentric,
not especially competitive,
more artistic and wounded, perhaps,

And not necessarily human,
maybe a chick,
or a colt,
a cub,
a matriarchal egg, etc.

you are a Wise EcoFeminist Elder,
an organic gardener
looking out for your healthy flock,
your child with disabilities,
your own chronic climate anxiety of win/lose stress,
expecting Aspergerish cooperative co-arising warm compassion
in-between memories of win/lose competitions
and images of future win/win cooperative democratic empowerment
through co-invested polypathic communication,
polynomial relationship,
polyphonic compassion.

You probably would think/feel yourself merely reponsible
for protecting your co-empathic young
from white predative nationalist hate,
from self-unfulfilling prophets of egalitarian apartheid
without hope of interdependent healthy regenerativity,

You would probably want to be reassured that:

1. Your young adult understands what s/he will be hearing
is driven by leftbrain competitive
emotionally dissociated
deductive/reductive dominating
monocultural identity,
at best, no more elitist right
than non-elitist wrong.

2. The right to free and responsible speech
(U-U Principle Four)
has a reverse corollary,
usually unconsciously assumed

S/he has the freedom not to listen
to unfree
potentially toxic
one-sided presentations
and leftbrain lopsided verbal debates
with straw ecofeminist
cooperative social investors,
indigenous citizens of sacred MotherEarth
before denizens of any nation-identified State,
or supremacist Tribe.

3. I would not think/feel
I am “coddling” my adolescent dependents,
whether human in formation
or a yearling pony,
by inviting them to anticipate discussion
with win/win non-violent intent,

That we are good
and natural
and healthy
and democratic
to assume restorative green resilience
of all ecosystems
and all subclimates,
whether internal or external,
whether yin or yang,
whether unitarian or universal,
whether ecofeminist or egopatriarchal,
whether sacred Left interdependent ecosystemic
or secular Right egocentric capitalists,

Dialogue is always a healthier choice
for a wise green energy democracy
then violent
overly competitive debates,
with zero-sum win/lose relational/nutritional assumptions

As if win/lose capitalism makes democratic nurturing sense
despite win/win empowering green
original sacred-mind and secular-body
bilateral revolutionary intent,

Where rational regenerative history
greets intuitive resonant mystery
with deep green learning respect.

4. And we are not really ‘coddling’
to rationally expect non-violent discussion
begins with compassionate win/win listening
for points of cooperative agreement,

Usually more significant
than win/lose points of runaway disagreement,
regardless of cultural color appreciation
or species gratitude,
or the healthier humor of leftbrain egopatriarchal dominance
passionate about cooperative rightbrain ecofeminist prominence.

Reason-rooted StraightWhiteMale gadflies
sometimes have trouble hearing
and appreciating the interdependent power
of 7th interdependent identity principles
in balance with
1st co-relational
co-passionate dignity principles

Of egalitarian freedoms to speak
and interdependent responsibilities
to listen for win/lose issues
to discern win/win cooperative resolutions.

Gadflies may tolerate
dissonant monoculturing fascist risks,
rather than resonantly co-responding
with confluent
interdependent opportunities,
which are more of a honey bee
kind of humming green consciousness,
both wealthy mind-thought
and healthy body-felt.


Congressional Grace

I’m still reading Your Resonant Self,
by Dr. Sarah Peyton,
speaking of how contempt
destroys relationships
formerly cooperative
and, thereby, healthy.

Disgust about oneself
and contempt against Other
are interrelated,
like ego and eco,
like Yang and Yin,

“Humans seem to be capable of disconnecting from others
[and our disgusting selves]
on a large scale
or small scale.” (p. 209)

I’m reminded of listening to the Trump Impeachment Debate,
hearing contempt for democratic dialogue,
for loyalty to trust,
vulnerability to unmediated light,
healthy curiosity,
courage to choose compassion,
for self and other,
for ego and eco,
rather than contempt.

Not that congressional debates
are suddenly plagued by partisan win/lose rhetorical strategies.

As a communication
and a psychology major,
I learned ancient techniques for persuasion,
for attitude change.
But, an underlying safe
non-partisan environment
of mutual trust,
of loyalty to a healthy Earth,
precludes giving way to the contagious temptations of contempt
against any OtherParty,
disgust about endemic economic and political corruption
of my own run-away win/lose internalized Party.

But, I have two points
seen more clearly through Dr. Peyton’s “Resonance”:

we are capable of national disconnecting shared-identity contempt
against threatening Other
because we were born win/win capable,
from warm attachment healthy birth
of cooperative compassionate development
toward healthy adult/adult resilient relationships,
rooted in our shared destiny
as bicameral EarthDwellers,
Mother EarthWomb Integralists.

contempt grows nationalistic partisanship
because localized compassion can also go viral,
contagious wealth of health-empowerment values
making resonant living systems possible,
re-creative potentiating

As darkness
can be noticed as dark
only by those capable
of remembering light,
power womb enlightenment,
Christmas Birth,
Easter EgoDeath,
Republic elitism,
Democrat non-elitism,
rhetorical contempt,
non-violent narrative,
red rightwing rage,
green leftwing synergy

Wishing all ego-parties
and ecosystems
healthy wealth of EarthPassionate ChristMass
political body-minds
economically double-bound nature-spirits
secular-sacred cooperative co-investors
both out and in
within Earth CoPassion.


Comedy of Impeaching Errors

The Republican congressmen,
and I do mean white privileged straight men,
came to their Democratic opposition
concerned about how depressing
December can be,
and all of winter,
come to think and feel
of dark discerning Advent,

So maybe we could stage
a comedic debate
about Trumpism,

To say the most extravagant truths
and untruths
and anti-truths
repeatedly aimed across each other’s non-listening brows,
to speak to American voters back home
of how much more reasonable they are

As they learn to transparently discuss
what we pretend to vulnerably debate,
as if we truly cared
about what our great
great grandfathers
thought and felt about great enlightenment era
liberal democratic theory
rooted in theoretical
without much experiential
cooperative co-investment,
social-political well-being
more deeply rooted in inclusive trust
and not disloyal royal mistrust
and not unconstitutional anti-trust
against global democratic social, psychological, ecological-theological health,

Wealth of trusting solidarity
subcultures and subclimates,
lefts and rights,
global ecology and local economy,
all more cooperatively amusing and good-humored,
like Ben Franklin more
and like Benedict Arnold less.

The greenish Democrats
felt this white nationalist comedy proposal
a great impeaching drama idea
to be staged immediately
with straight-forward urgency

To defend universal mental health-care
constitutional well-being inside covenants
and other serious bicameral empowering matters.

So, while winking left-eyed,
these farcical RightWing stand up comedians
and repeatedly
reminded horrible Green Democratic Predators,
Pretentious Prosecutors of True Public Health and Safety,
they are thereby,
and heretoforth,
staging a painfully tragic revolutionary Coup,
without the military, just yet.

The Democrats respond,
repeatedly underlining
a most portentous liberal educated view:

The climatic sky is falling,
but you want to argue about differences
between our great
great grandfathers,
overly exercised about capitalist political theory,
while all white male privileged
and many, if not most,
slave-owners and hopelessly straight,
some of whom actually sold off property
(now liberally known as non-elite labor force)
to pay off their cooperative membership dues
to financially launch this non-partisan
revolutionary confection
known as the U.S. of A.

why does the prospect of President Pence
lead you to so quickly claim
a revolutionary Coup,
a denial of your Republican RightWing
straight white privileged incorporated patriarchy
that nominated
this unlikely anointed duality?

Now rabid Republicans
smell some not so funny meat:

You have hated Trump
since we profitably nominated him
and his Christianity Today muzzling
and smug side-kick
praying for a better heterosexual Rapturous Day.

This kangaroo Pelosi court
is not about green and clean and healthy people
and planet;

It is also not about narcissism
and anthropocentrism
and xenophobia
and greed
and disassociative psychosis
and climate anxiety,
and over-populated rabidity,
and unhealthy patriarchal morbidity,
and globally tragic pathology
and other LeftBrain too-dominant associated pathologies.

But, this charade
reminds of your original ill-intent
against the cooperative win/win healthcare needs
of The People!

Almost half of whom
actually voted for this Trumpian self-promoting Messiah
of monocultural climate pathology Denialism,
not realizing that underneath his InExperienced Emperor clothes,
lurked a naked anti-trust of Other,
anti-SacredTrust in Transparent Truth,
against Health/Wealth Faith,

Invested in AntiHope for a Great Unraveling Body
of AntiChrist Red UnHealthy
straight White male and Earth CoFragility,
reactionary repression

Where once lived Right-tragic and Left-comedic
AnthroPrivilege of conscious good-humored Communication
and healthier wisdom about Fake AnthroSupremacy
of unconscious BadHealth DisConnection,
Lose/Lose absence of wealthy associations,
cooperative co-investments, past through future
win/win green democratic communions,
secularLeft and sacredRight

The Great Impeachment Debate
was discussed
and win/win v lose/lose v win/lose non-partisan discerned
by multicultural mediators,
restorative justice green-economy pundits,
permaculture design integral-ZeroZone value optimization ecologists,
LaughTherapy compassionate Buddhists,
Tao NonZeroSum NonViolent NonDualists,
Ego/EcoFeminist Therapists,
Indigenous FireCircles,
Owls and Hawks and Eagles and Ravens and Crows,
Air and Fire,
Soil and Water,
Atmosphere breezes
stirring deep and wide Waters
resiliently seeking Resonance,
Sweet ProPeachments
Ways and Win/Win Means.

A consensus quickly emerged;
organic systems,
polypathic energy democracies
felt this Impeachment Debate was over-acted,
under cooperatively framed;
overly rhetorical,
under musical, or even lyrical;
overly repetitive
and yet under-resiliently resonant,

And undernourishing of good humor,
under-watered for long-term green health,
under-fed by compassion
and ego/ecotherapeutic bicameral intent
and warm accompaniment happiness.

With inappropriate debate themes
for teaching small children cooperative dialogue skills
and other forms of civil green communion trust
suitable for growing any healthy democracy,

We found bipartisan support
to mutually stop under-investing
in a wealthy sense of bilateral tragic-humor
to re-empower potential climates
now sadly disempowering.

Note: Much of the underlying theme associating healthy humor with feelings of cooperative trust has been informed by a contemporary, yet classic, political empowerment theory that the underlying emotive prerequisite to develop and maintain any truly democratically healthy relationship¬†is trust–more important even than feelings of loyalty, and felt needs of uniformity more than cooperatively-held unity.¬† This provokes a consciousness of left-brain investment in Uniform States in creative/divisive tension with right-brain investment in compassionately United-Interdependent States, of America, geopolitical hemispheres, Earth, extended families, associated species, etc…


SelfThreatening Prayers

With all the impeachment talk,
worried about ecopolitical Trumpian aristocracy,
five more years of narcissistic nonsense,
of white privileged entitlement
of second and third deadened generations
of rich by kleptocratic filth,
Republican APart-heid Oligarchy

I keep wondering
and stressfully worrying
about lack of attention
to everyday Business As Usual
Republic for Religious WhiteRight

An overpowering sacred and secular government
in which all divine Power
is invested in a few WhiteFragile patriarchs,
a missionary dominant LeftBrain class,
evangelically predative,
corporately patriotic,
a self-anointed apartheid sanctuary for PeronsalDivineTruth
and xenophobic distrust of OtherTruths,

I smell a cancerously monocultural government
by the supremely self-selected few
made in God the WhiteFather’s true capitalist greedy corporate image,
competitive against Earth-worshiping beauty,

of My One Way,
My Republic
for which Capitalist Business Stands In For Truth,
My smugly Elitist Life,

Heedless of Earth’s incumbent
radically democratic recombinant
multicultural Death

Without any future hope
of further Oligarchical Republics
for RightWing Rapture.


King Midas Trump

And all he touched turned to…

I wonder how Donald Trump thought
and felt
about his King Midas political narrative
at the time of his electoral college victory.

actually I don’t need to wonder.
He mentioned, once or twice,
how thrilled he was with well-marketed turnout
at his self-celebratory inauguration.

I wonder how these thoughts and feelings might compare
with King Midas despair
thoughts and golden touch feelings
after impeachment of his intentional neglect
for multiculturally inclusive
and healthy wealth of resilient GoldenRule communication
co-attached interdependent values
of a democracy
built on robust and resilient trust.

For any narcissist,
this is a curiously compassionate dispassionate question,
but for a nationalistically successful executive
of win/lose competitions
precluding sight and sound and smell
of win/win green healthy cooperative organic structures
and empowerment platforms
for healthier climate multicultures,
even the GoldenRule is trumped
by GoldenTouch of toxic wealth
prejudicially measured as robust
regardless of absent compassionate health
made more resiliently resonant
through integrity of Left with Right winged golden balance,
equitable ratios
and interdependently blended elixirs
ego-RightWing ebbing
with eco-LeftWing flowing.

Seems to me I remember someone
saying something
about not storing up golden treasures
in trump towers
where moths
and bedbugs
and rust
can so easily spread
mold and moral bankruptcy.
