On Capitalizing Plants

A Commentary on

“A Note on the [Patriarchal-Capitalist] Treatment
of Plant Names”
by Robin Wall Kimmerer, p. 385
BRAIDING SWEETGRASS:
INDIGENOUS WISDOM,
SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE,
AND THE [SACRED] TEACHINGS
OF PLANTS

I too often accept
with nary a LeftBrain dominant thought
that our verbalized labels
for individual EgoPersons
are RoyallyCAPITALIZED.

To write
“Marvin Appletree”
would be to strip my tree
of His/Her sacred status
as an EarthTribe indigenous
child of MotherEartha
long before my own anthrosupremacist
sense of owning Real Estate
and all the Othered squatters
breathing anonymously on It.

It would be LeftBrain laughable
to write “Mosquito”
if this were in reference
to a flying insect,
any non-individuated
yet potentially annoying
predative Other.

LeftBrain Capitalization
conveys a certain Either/Or divisive distinction,
difference,
pejorative dissociation,

The anthrosupremacist position
of humans
normatively communicating outside
our sacred Grand Canyon spaces
and our own Creations
and our own proprietary Estates
esteemed private and corporate ownership
within a Patriarchal hierarchy
of CAPITALIZED Beings.

Economists have widely adopted
the win/lose Capitalism convention
of not sufficiently capitalizing
investing in the common sacred values
of organic plants
and animals
unless they are included
in a HumanNature narrative
for an official sacred space
place LeftBrain labeled
Holy Spirit Natured Sanctuary.

Thus, the first blossoms
of my favorite RightBrain cooperative gift:
Spring bursting flowers forth
in sacred organic Forests

Are LeftBrain written
as bloodroot
and the pink star
of a California Yosemite National Park
tiger lilly.

This seemingly natural
non-spiritual LeftBrain normative
verbal rulemaking
in Either EgoMine/OrAlienOther labeling
expresses deeply held competitive win/lose assumptions
about HumanNature monopolized
monotheistic
dualistic exceptionalism,

That ego-privileged speakers
and writers
are valued sacredly different
and monotheistically better
than other EarthTribe
panentheistic
Holy Nature/Spirited species
acting as our Othered
also-ran un-invested backdrop,

Mere organic environment
with only the Truth
and Beauty
we so royally assign
on our magnanimous best healthy days
and benign wealthy nights
to revere our Sacred Elders.

Indigenous wisdom
recognizes
reconnects
re-ligions
polycultural co-relationship
of all interdependent organic Beings

As equally 7th Principle
unitarian sacred
and ecopolitically
universally important

RightBrain imported
transpositioned
communioned
co-passionate

Not in a Patriarchal hierarchy
of ecopolitical scarcity
to merely win/lose survive
otherwise degenerative lose/lose nihilistic
genocidal
ecocidal outcomes

But a PolyCultural Blue/Green Global Communion
eco-revolving gifts
spiraling circles
of EarthTribe Left/Right balancing life
includes RightBrain emotive love impressions.

So, in my LeftBrain universal ego-narrative
as in my RightBrain sacred
unitarian love life,

I break,
disconnect to reconnect,
without ego-LeftBrain partisan blinders,
to write
and speak
and sing
and dance freely

With my MarvinGaye AppleTree,
with they WiseHeron
and Boisterous Walrus
spirited natures
when I value a panentheistic
ego-person,
human Holy NatureSpirited,
or not;

And sing Health and Safety
Truth and Beauty
bicameral secular/sacred Anthems
of EarthTribe maples,
herons,
and bicameral balancing humans

When I value a LeftBrain
EitherMe/OrWe category
AND a RightBrain
holonically
multiculturally
polyculturally
poyphonically
polypathically felt
polyvagal complexly abundant
co-passionate win/win

Yang-strong/yintegral-flow
universal/unitarian
secular/sacred reconception
of consumer commodities
as productive
meaningful
mindful BiPartisan Gifts

Voting by sacred presence
for resilient EarthTribe
Left-healthy
and Right sacred safety

Democratic recycling
revolving
dynamic breathing in from above
as out from below
co-passion balancing
MotherEartha energy.

Sensual Synergy

I think I shall always see
a creative tension
within aesthetic equity
not Earth-focused beauty
but sensory health
of intimately true
integrity

When I feel painfully
non-erotically oppressed
health repressed
wealth suppressed

I can imagine what I could do
more powerfully
differently
enlightened therapeutically
exotically
music resonantly
muse cooperatively
more inclusive, equitably
with positive values relentlessly
curious sacred silent
serenity

Imagining all my ways,
re-imaging all my personal passion days
as if I had been
a sold out
sex starved
activist

Not my own
silently faithful
protagonist,

But unfaithful internal antagonist,
virally self-blaming
shameful
capital patriarchal oppressor
of all those leftwing
neglectfully disabled
behind.

Both virally empowered oppressor
and unenlightened victim,
cosmic interdependent equity

Lacking compassion,
health integrity,
deep learning
balanced Yang inhaling
Yintegral exhaling
cooperative
Both/And balance

Synergy’s co-empathic
multi-sensory potential
for balancing healthy personal
neurally incorporated
individual wealth care

To re-imagine wellbeing
through polyphonic song
and horizontal dance
polyvagal mediation.

Advent of Serenity

Which sounds healthier
to you?

Advent Serenity
or Christmas Birthing Terror

Separate identity comes from sacred Mother
and embryonic Child
interwoven bio-roots

As awareness of serene light
emerges from safe
and warm
original wombed
dark nutritious night

As regenerative individual delight
of nascent
flowers integrity’s potential
to evolve from organically disconnecting
birthing powers

As LeftBrain ego identity
revolves with sacred democratic integrity
of healthy EarthMother
imprinting each divine Gaian infant

Trusting Truths
born of Serene Beauty

Like purple Health
co-acclimating red/blue Wealth

Like C centered resilience
emerging from A/E re-membering resonance

Like positive 1
mediating serene
NotFull/NotEmpty 0
co-emergent
double-binary compassion.

Learning to Accept

Thank you Stathi,

I thought this was going to be about Learning to Accept

degenerating ancient bodies
degenerating soulful minds
a degenerating,
indigenously NatureYang/SpiritYintegrally wise EarthTribe
of Organic EcoSystemic MultiReligious PolyCultures:

PanenTheistic
StraightWhiteMale Universal-West MonoTheism v. [and] Queer Spiral EcoFeminist PeaceActivist Unitarian-East PolyTheism,

AnthroSupremacist MonoTheism North 1/0 Sacred EarthMother PolyCultural South

[co-arising dipolar bicamerality]

PatriCapitalist Dominant RightWing/
MatriCommunion Indigenously EcoFeminist LeftWing

[potential for bicameral self and other restoring justice]

Within a more internally/externally
breathing in healthy and breathing out wealthy EarthClimate of Integrity

[GoldenRule, nonviolently applied to one’s own EgoLeftYang Hemisphere
by EcoSystemic RightYintegrity’s Sacred ReGenerative BiHemispheric Potential.]

Which is a journey all about learning to accept that win/lose PatriCapital LeftBrain Universal dominance can be forgiven,
especially as we deep learn
and nonviolently listen
for

PolyCultural Communion,
RightBrain Unitarian prominence
can become MultiCulturally
EcoPolitically
BiCamerally
ConCelebrated
CoPassionate
CoInvestments in thriving Win/Win Health/Wealth optimizing

Creolizing,
sacred inside/outside communion transubstantiating
regenerative healthier climate futures
for win/win thriving
co-investing
cooperatively GoldenRule organizing
EarthTribal regenerations
of bicameral balancing
ego-health/sacredEarthWealth amplitude
gratitude
positive ecopolitical attitude
ecofeminist organic platitudes
from way, way back

before U.S. history,
before English language
before European human history,
before linguistic language
before homosapiens
to DNA’s Left/Right spiraling
health/wealth
nature/spirit
outside/inside
strong/flow
regeneratively climaxing
dipolar co-arising wisdom.

That said, and even bicamerally so,
my LeftBrain ego identity still thought this was going to be about Learning to Accept
eternal win/lose anxiously, chronically traumatic pre/post stress, cognitive/affective dissonance,
strong win/lose evolutionary competitive human natural
PatriCapitalist overwhelming
win/win timeless NonZero Soul
ecofeminist underdogs
[RightWing often thought of as MeToo# []itches]
for aregenerative healthy democracy
by wealthy resilient way
of bicamerally climaxing overflow

Instead of Learning to Accept
LeftBrain dominance
as if it were monotheistically
Straight White Western “MaleGod”
monoculturally inevitable
AnthroSupremacy.

Listening for GodWords

I don’t know,
S/He said,

(right winged left
exhaled downstream
past everyone’s egopaled head)

If God is dead
and also much too Capitalistic,
LeftBrain dominant hegemonalistic

(like water to a philosophical shark)

If God is straight
and white
and a patriarchal supremacist accountant
calculating monoculturally ambitious values

Then maybe also monotheistically antagonistic,
or at least apathetic,
about polyculturally healthy
ecopolitical womanist wealth,
without apartheid walls.

Surely not both,
disempowering abuse
and unenlightened neglect,
that couldn’t be,
replied S/He
choosing His verbal LeftBrain voice

(Either/Or reductive,
conservative,
reactive,
sometimes deafly patriarcolonizing)

stressed by harmonic Both/And resonance
and timelessly reconnecting RightBrain choice

(polycultural ego as ecotheistic).

S/He thinks
God must not be

an angry white capitalist old man
in the sky
to vengefully judge
and win/lose evolution justify
historic cash reparation millions
of Winning CapitalBuilding patriotism,
so Lose unempirically marginalized
brown-skinned Goddess Worshipers,

S/He feels
God must not remain
an Original Natural Law Judge
too comfortably drinking
from homophobic
xenophobic waters,
issuing AnthroHomoSupremacist decrees,
dogmas against win/win indigenous
body/mind health care issues
exceeding His own RightBrain
multicultural mediating experience
with brain dead and yet body alive
expertise.

S/He multiculturally senses
God must not prevail
as a MonoCapitalist Banker
abusively over-investing in right wing
lose/lose ecopolitical,
Earth terrorizing,
violent communication conflicts,

S/He polyculturally postulates
Win/Win God could also feel Goddessness
if not so theologically upset and disrespectful
when healthy natural women
wear short-sleeved political shirts
and long-legged economic pants,
and when two natural men
have holy spiritual sex
with each Other,
and not with
(abusively punishing
Straight Judge
violently shaming and blaming)
Him.

S/He remembers
Goddess could also know
how He feels
competitively monotheistic dead,
or at least asleep,
with a secular/sacred vocation
inherited from abusive
and/or neglectful
patrilinear designs from Above

SunGod LawGiver
enscriptured by Straight White Hims
cannot be Yintegral Hers,
not Queer BlackGaian Goddess scribes,
ecstatic worshipers,

(not quite so much dogmatic
dualistic
ecopolitically privileged reconstructionists)

indigenous fire-circle dancers,
recycling Full and DualDark
light night empowerment Wonderers,
awesome enlightenment Wanderers…

But, instead choosing only to become
this DeathCulture God
of StraightWhiteWesternMale Crusaders,
Fight makes Right jihadists,
colonizing inquisitors,
misogynists,
homophobes,
evangelical Capital-gaining pastors,
fundamental dualists

(violently abusive nature survivalist
against Spirit neglectful unthrivalist),

against ecowomanist enlightened empowerment.

S/He reconnectively learns
to this EarthDay
deep win/win regenerative mysteries
of His LeftBrain win/lose universe

(of Either/Or reductive ego monopolitics)

Win/Lose competitive
mono-LeftBrain anthrotheistic
StraightWhiteMale CapitalBuilding patriartick
with punishing judgmental authority
to damn multiculturally undressed
lack of punishing codes

Shunning
and imprisoning
and enslaving
and monetizing neuro-reproductive behavior
of all ego-sensory EarthTribes
engaged in violent through compassionate
interconnected multicultural communication
and religiously nutritional neuro-sensory systems

(for sacred health enlightenment
and secular safe empowerment,
S/He said
hopefully
before SunGod is BlackHole
lives splattered dead).

Metaphistic Beginnings

What do these share,
in common meta-euphoric relationship?

Dignity
Destiny
Dignified Destiny
PreDestined Dignity

Humanity
Integrity
Humane Integrity
Integral Humanity

Spirituality
Ego-Elasticity
Spiritual EgoElasticity
EcoElastic Spirituality?

And how, naturally,
And why, spiritually,
And when
and where
are these so essentially different?

If they are
or ever were
and must be
diverse facets
of natural synergy
and integral spirituality.

We often speak up
and out
for healthy destiny of humanity
but do we also make some sense
projecting wealthy humanitarian destinations
of Earth’s resilient integrity?

And so strong hearted minds
and mind full compassioned hearts
go back and for
flowing in and out functions
Either/Or discontinuous
analogous frequencies
for integral Both/And
metaphoric probabilities

For avoiding toxic LeftBrain dominant
-isms:

Sophism
Capitalism
Nihilism
Sexism
Racism
Colonialism
is not BiCameral MultiCulturality,

Egoism
is not BiLateral Eco-NonToxicity,

Pessimism
is not Ego/Eco-binding
eco-political Optimism,

Ageism
is not resilient Civility,

Nationalistic Patriotism
is not EarthTribe Matrioticity,

Heterosexism,
like Patriarchalism,
too long cancerously embodied
in NonCatholicity,
is not compassionate Christianity,

Evangelicalism
and its monoculturing
StraightWhite MisBegotten punishing god
of universal capital-infested evil,
remain oppressively stuck up
in a devolutionary decaying Tree
of unlovable NonLivability.

What is this LeftBrain dominant-ism
if not also deductive Either Orism
Without RightBrain co-arising
inductive Both/Andicity?

Authenticity
Integrity
Synergy
Felicity
Flexibility
Community
NonMendacity
Nutritionality

Momentous ReTrainStitions

Icons are funny things,
she thought.

Heaven feels like a warm light circle
when we are thriving
and more like a cold dark triangle
of weaponed tipping points
against me
and mine
competitively not communicating
when we are barely surviving
above the mortally terrifying bottom
of God’s most worthless non-elite.

Ancient right-brained heaven
a circle of prominent light
shining down on a mountainous YangEarth
of triangulating Power
to discern Win/Win co-empathic outcomes
for co-redemptive sacred relationships
of YangHeaven/YintegralEarth.

Newer left-hemispheric Earth

at God’s most enlightened transcendent Top,
and Lose/Lose survivalist voices

existential despair.

Here, sun’s circular warm light
co-empathic embracing right
is ironically entrapped
by win/lose survivalist capitalistic
elitist
patriarchal
heterosexist monoculturing might
of hierarchical pyramids
to past unchanging royalist traditions
of might makes God right
more than win/win liberally loving
