Imagine your healthiest body
is a democratic
self/other empowering organism

most nutritionally,
nurtured by an also open,
dynamic win/win preferential,
revolving planetary universe,
in many sacred times and places
also known as MotherEarth.

your democratic bodymind
is an open
co-invested re-centering,
co-acclimating interior and exterior
bilaterally systemic infrastructure
for democratic health,
rooted in mutual trust.

If your brain is in charge,
this is a democratic charge,
a coordinating
complexly inter-communicating
organic whole system responsibility,
leaving no individual organ or health function
irresponsibly behind.

Not an autocratic,
from above,
hierarchically patriarchal,
head-mind over felt-body matter,
unilateral authority
capable of long-term
win for leftbrain dominant mind
only at the cost of a lose
for rightbrain democratic
interdependently felt nature/spirit
body/mind bicameral communion intelligence

Bilaterally ego/eco communing communication
looking for win/win neurological
whole system
democratic resolution of health issues,
pathologically autocratic cancers,
cognitive/affective predations,
viral dissonance,
rabid and rogue behaviors,
win/lose anthropocentric ego-inflations,
lose/lose terrors and global humiliations,
rather than win/win wonders
and sacred awe of Earth’s resiliently healthy
democratic regenerativity.

Now, recall important political statements
influencing your own development:

A family is not a democracy.
A classroom is not a democracy.

Both implied “should not be” statements
almost certainly true
in your own predominant civil empowerment/disempowerment
formative experience,

Embracing win/lose
either-me/or-you competitions
between empowered teachers and preachers
and not yet mature and experienced
sometimes you win,
usually you don’t,
children and adolescents
and young adults,

Many of whom,
especially those poorer and darker,
will graduate into military-industrializing subcultures,
where patriarchal
leftbrain dominant autocracy
of commanders
over enslaved
and rented both/and repowering bodies
become reduced to untrusting tools
and win/lose
high risk strategic weapons.

These young left-brain autocratic adults
will certainly not be gathering rich Trust experience
in democratic dialogue
over autocratic debate
about the weakness
of win/win EarthJustice restoring democracy.

So, is it possible to hear?

Families, like competitive classrooms,
intending young life healthy empowerment,
often autocratically disempower

An economic and political warning;
A challenge to overcome not-yet mature democracy
rooted in experience of robust cooperative Trust,
rather than an unintended civics lesson
in rabid leftbrain dominant autocracy,
as if capitalism
were patriarchally inevitable
as racial
and sexist
and homophobic
and xenophobic
and anthropocentric apartheid.

As if mutually mistrusting
competition for individual investment power
were democratically healthier
than win/win cooperative models
for shared mind/body
eco/ego-systemic wealth,

Resonant trust,
resilient love,
trusting compassion

Imagining our healthiest bodies
are democratic
self/other empowering
Earth responsible organisms.
