Gods of Power

If God
and gods
and other paternal powers
resource love,
and not hate

And if we believe
that love fades
with encroaching fear

Faith strong rooted
in personal
and professional
and economic
and local
through global
trauma experience

And if god
and great paternal rulers
and warriors
and heroes
are free of Loser fear

If straight white paternal privilege
felt more free to grow omnipotently capable
of unconditional multicultural regard
for EarthTribe’s surviving health
and regenerating wealth
and recreated Earth thrival

Then it seems likely to me
that victims,
self-victimized
and/or other-victimized,
of and for addiction
loss
pain
trauma
chronic stress
poverty
disempowerment
incapacity of reliable health care
for all EarthTribes,

Victims of LeftBrain patriarchal education,
parenting by verbal and physical domination,
preaching by intimidation and shaming,

Victims of peers
siblings
and professional colleagues
for punishing and mutual blaming,
escalating mis- and dis-communication

Miss out on bicameral deep sacred learning,
parenting by safe and healthy cooperation,
preaching by mentoring and listening,
peers for healing mutual mediation
and panentheistic re-framing
opportunities for compassion’s integral redaction
of sacred EarthJustice HerStory

Understoried womb
of soulful nutritional
nurturing EarthMother
regenerating ecopolitical soil,
seeds,
nuts,
polyculturing eggs

These are all potent Paternity’s most sacred
loving
engaging
co-redemptive
co-invested opportunities
for expanding mindfulness,
consciousness,
enlightened co-empathic empowerment

Free of chronic fear
angered by traumatic
patriarchal inhumanity
severance
apartheid
dissociation
imprisonment
enslavement
excommunication
marginalization
disinvestment.

Here lies sacred curiosity
to replace
win/lose aggressions
with courage to embrace
win/win
health is social wealth
naturally spirited impressions.

Fathers of communication
and learning problems
engaging compassionate
nonviolent opportunities
to expand emergent win/win resilience.

Fearless, unconditionally loving
gods
and lesser rulers
most sacredly informing
therapies for trauma,
chronic stress,
fear,
anger,
self-rabid righteousness

Anthrosupremacist narcissism,
lust for monopolies
of secularized,
capitalized Paternalistic
monotheistic
unrealistic over-powers
expensively waged against

Peacemaking unconditional regard
of fearless
flawless
ominipotently omnipresent
omnisciently panentheistic
polyculturally healthy
emotion intelligence

Nonviolent communications,
restoring free freedom
to restory
patriarchal traditions
militarized punishing injustice systems

With monocultural tendencies
monotheistic theologies
monopolistic
traumatized
neglected and abused ecologies,
eco-matricide

But, if God
and gods
and other paternal powers
resource love,
and not hate

And if we believe
that love fades
with encroaching fear

We might also trust
that loves grows more resilient
with cooperative win/win
intent to democratically
and globally initiate
create
recreate
omnipotently mindful
trauma-informed
resonantly sacred
communionation

Courageous teachers
who remain curious students,
Enlightened parents
who remain win/win empowered children,
Rulers
who remain cooperative co-governors,
Patriarchs
who remain resiliently co-invested
ecofeminists,

Messianic heroes
who repair local trauma
with bodhisattva global reinvestment
in peace

Conservative paternalists
restoring green climate justice,
fearlessly engaging omnipotent integrity
of curiosity’s copious compassion

On sacred land
and sensate seas
where kindness
and mindfulness
are free
of fear
and anger,
trauma
and chronic stress,
which cost everyone

Including omnipotent God
and monopolistic corporate gods
and the lesser patriarchs
of scriptured history
exploring integrity,
most therapeutically sacred

Natural manly health
is also spiritual goddess EarthWealth,
co-passionate
spiraling
bipartisan communal potential.

Health ReNewing Years

Polymorphic design

local through global

When we recognize
what inspires healthy polycultural design

Is both stress-reductive
good humored

Then,
in this Here and Now

Growing Healthier Hopes

For measuring fleeting successes
of punishing policing justice,
we have overly relied on recidivism rates
in response to curiosity about
How to decrease crime.

For enjoying compassion
of restorative
healing justice,
we rely on win/win mediation
to grow deep resonance
and widely resilient integrity

In response to curiosity about
How to increase health
and safety
and happiness
locally egotherapeutic
and globally ecotherapeutic.

Retributive justice
fails a healthy and safe
wellness society
as it continues to punish
and excommunicate wounded
win/lose damaged criminals.

Meanwhile
community-based visions
for restoring wellbeing
equity
justice
become increasingly effective
and resilient
as parents
and teachers
and leaders
shift our victimization focus
from CRIMES, violent and/or financial,
to healing victims of TRAUMA

Personal
and systemic,
political
and economic,
locally genocidal
and globally ecocidal.

ThanksGiving CommunioNations

ThanksGiving advances

Arising thoughts about boundary breaching risks
and perennial partisan issues
and deep listening opportunities.

Perhaps only the Othering
and Othered One Percent
instilling in their children
and future grandchildren
that extended family meals
are never an appropriate time
or sacred space
to speak of desecrating politics
or sanctimonious religion
and, above else,
nothing remotely suggestive
of personal sex histories
and fantasies.

And yet,
from a deep power analysis perspective
of richly co-invested feelings,
these three,
together,
form a developmental narrative
of how spiritual empowerment,
RightHemisphere felt,
and natural enlightenment,
LeftHemisphere considered
and reconsidered
and preconsidered
and formerly unconsidered
thoughts

Develop toward co-passion,
gratitude,
resilient capacity for giving
and receiving Thanks

However agnostic
atheistic
monotheistic
polytheistic
and/or panentheistic

Our sensory sexual systems
are indigenous,
forming already
before we are born,
known,
heard
and smelled
and tasted.

Religious
or even anti-religious enculturation
speaks to our sensory-spiritual
mental
metaphysical experiences

Peaks and valleys
on a range from empowering positive feelings
and negative diesmpowering associations
with metaphysical thoughts
and physical feelings,
attitudes,
belief systems
dreams
and nightmares

Sometimes closed,
and therefore entropic,
and degenerating,
claustrophobic
and pathological

And sometimes open
and whole
and regenerating,
trusted
and healthy
and resilient.

Here
where resonant metaphors emerge
more helpful social communication boundaries
change
morph
conciliate
creolize,
embrace win/win sexual
and religious
and political strategies

Unlike win/lose work
remains politely segregated
from win/win play
at tearing down judgmental
stress and trauma boundaries

Like dark and light,
seriously competitive vocations
remain dimly dissociated
from humorously cooperative vacations
from old capitalist school
patriarchal business as bottom-line
competitions for short-term profits

While investing in
more long-term fruitful
political relationships
can also become explicitly sexual
and/or implicitly religious,
spiritual
and natural,
mental
and physical powers
of not only self-righteous internal governance
but also Other governing fair
and equitable
and integral power relationships,
cooperative win/win
and/or competitive win/lose
and/or despondent lose/lose.

After the second glass of wine,
with the kids off at their G-rated table,
and football announcers
creating white
and blue and black and brown
and hot red seething
tight shoulder and hip pad testosterone
distracting noises
and visions
and revisions
in life’s sensory underground
and background

It might be appropriate
to ask about a cherished Other’s
sexually political spiritual energy lives
as if trauma-reducing resilience
through nonviolent communication
deeply
sacredly
integrally matters

When healthy and safe communication
remains politically felt
and religiously thought
and neuro-sensory shared
becomes welcome curiosity
and invited transparency
and cherished vulnerability,
what has never been courageously discussed
may also be what empowers thankfulness
and enlightens this Gratitude Day

For rich sensory meals
and peak experiences,
for robust political laughter and joy,
and spiritual integrity
of resiliently good humor
and health-enlightened
smells and tastes and looks
and wealth-empowering grace

We might yet give thanks
this religious
and political
ThanksGiving Day,
including both neuro-sensory fulfilling peaks
and over-stuffed purgation valleys.

Democratic Trust

When I drove away from the family farm
to embrace my freshman year
at the University of Michigan
in Vietnam-era 1970,

I was planning on majoring in political science
which later turned into a double major
in communication theory
and positive neuro-psychology

Persuasion,
cognitive/affective bicameral
conserving/liberating bipolarizing dissonance,
and more resonantly trusted
positive therapeutic attitude change.

What I do recall from PoliSci 101:
The well-researched underlying root value
for any healthy,
safe,
resilient democratic polyculture
is not LeftBrain polypathic intelligence
and certainly not more RightBrain
election campaign persuasive beauty,
but profoundly inclusive TRUST

Which,
when I later worked in theology,
rediscovered in what religious traditions
monotheistically refer to as FAITH
and/or
polytheistically embrace as COMPASSION.

Trust also turned out to become
the primary underlying value
for resilient communication
and deeply resonant
mental/spiritual robust health
and neuro-systemic safety

Slow-growing increased capacity
for unconditional regard
of people
and our plants
and our cooperatively-managed planet
developing public health urban areas
and cultivating regenerative farms.

I find it disappointing
and tragic, then,
that our disuniting State schools
coach young democratic residents
in win/lose debate
but not win/win trusted
faithful
cooperatively-intended
nonviolent dialogue.

This may have a causal effect
negatively reproducing Patriarchal-Capitalist
competitive mistrust relationships

Further embedding runaway
vicious circle revenge
militarism
racism
homophobia
sexism
ableism
punishing
criminalizing
imprisoning
Othering justice systems

Lacking robust muscularity
to restore and reward
positive ego-
and eco-
and anthro-therapeutic Trust
through proactive teaching
and studying
and mentoring
and mediating
win/win dialogue skills

For pro-active
cooperative co-investments
emotional,
financial,
political,
ecological,
theological

Polypathically reinforcing
a great healthy
and safe EarthTribe
polycultural university

Universe for engaging
co-passionate trust
in integrity,
synergetic relationships,
cooperatively therapeutic respect

Re-inspecting emergent Trust
through transparent
and vulnerable dialogue,
discernment

Intent to embrace healthy
and safe democratic communication
systems

Useful trust-building
for restoring cooperative farms
and urbane justice areas
we call
United humane States

Which was on my mind
and heart
when I drove away from the family farm
and my high school debate team
to embrace my freshperson
political scientist year
at the University of Michigan
in Vietnam-conflicted
mistrustful 1970.

Therapeutic JustUs

Lori Gottlieb
describes mental health mediators
and dream translators
prescribing more cost-effective therapeutic questions:

Who am I?
What do I want?
What’s in my natural health/spiritual wealth
bilaterally balancing way?

What do I want more:
to autonomously control
OR
to be part of some monopolizing,
possibly monotheistic, Thing
bigger than egocentric Me?

May morph
more effluently co-therapeutic
than affluent expertise advice
into:
What do I want
to safely control
AND YET ALSO
be part of some EarthTribe
polyculturally intelligent Relationship?

Healthier
more inclusive
and indigenous
and holistic
and organic
and resilient
than excluded
and punished
and wounded
and thereby imprisoned
and victimized Me

And my LeftBrain capitalized dominance
affluently attracts Gottlieb’s rational health
and safety questions
about wounded AnthroEgos

AND my RightBrain effluent impressions

To A Superior Judge

I could not do what you are mandated to do
every day on society’s justice bench,
weighing retributive justice
against restorative healing.

I cannot look at police
and correction officers’
routinely criminalizing vocations,
and injudicious levying of fines
against the young
and black
and brown
and homeless

Punishing prison sentences
for the most obvious trauma victims
of chronic blue-shirt bullying,
theft,
not really clever lies,
racial profiling,
diminishment
and derision by militarized
and miseducated
mercenaries of a rabid Estate.

My son,
now twenty-seven,
was not expected to reach full emotional maturity
until his early thirties,
as evinced by research on ADHD.

However,
that pessimistic projection
may be optimistically skewed,
not accounting for trauma histories
common to significant learning disabilities,
nor a special education black male experience
in a racist and homophobic “corrections” society.

Economic and political maturity
security
integrity
may never arrive at the Promised Land
for the young black male
separated from his birthmother during infancy
to be parented by a mixed-race gay male couple,
having to defend not only himself
but his out gay younger brother
from predative peers
under the radar
of teachers
and school administrators
disabled by “zero tolerance”
means zero compassion
retributive justice
dysfunctional trauma systems.

This is the third time that police officers have failed
to include in their self-righteous reports
that they took hundreds of dollars out of my son’s pocket
and put it in theirs,
and triumphantly reported only a fraction
of the high quality,
organic cannabis found in his car,
while the majority disappeared

Not reported,
not seen,
not returned;
stolen from my young
black
homeless,
high school diploma with a fourth-grade education,
son.

If my oldest son could easily choose to work
at a full-time
living wage job

If he could get to work on time,
on the right remembered schedule,
with a reliable car,
and feel like he was not being judged,
ridiculed,
and bullied by peers
and supervisors,
shamed and blamed for not being smart enough,
clever enough,
quick-witted enough,
middle-class white enough,
man enough,
successful enough,
then he would not choose to spend long hours
and sleepless nights
delivering the only therapeutic self-medication to others
that has helped him numb the pain
of childhood,
community,
chronic post-traumatic stressors
which have led to his current social,
economic,
and political ostracization,
and potential imprisonment.

I am a certified multicultural community mediator,
so my training is about how to most effectively support
those experiencing trauma
and actively looking for restorative peace
and resilient social justice
therapeutic outcomes.

Mediators begin with identifying the victim(s) feelings
safety needs
and healthy wants,
and then explore the probability
that perpetrators too are victims
of childhood,
community,
and environmental
trauma histories,
fraught with
win/lose zero-sum
contextual stress
critical and chronic
non win/win events.

From that lose/lose potential perspective,
my son has been repeatedly victimized
by police officers
defensively trained
to tolerate their own predative
bullying behaviors.

If anyone would benefit from jail time,
and/or fines,
it is the perpetrators of organized,
anti-social crime.

But, again,
from a restorative justice perspective,
blue-shirt officers, too,
have been victimized by a militarized,
miseducated retributive justice system,
rooted in judgment,
blame,
and shame

And not compassion,
curiosity,
and contextual intelligence

Which is why I could not do
what you are mandated to do.

With unconditional regard,

GD, MDiv, MPA,
and heartbroken DD’s Dad
