He Curiously Listens

He listens for my integrity;
our highest and best destiny

As if interred in our children’s
still living oral tradition
Then captured in post-millennial
historic textbooks
on cooperative eco-politics

Illustrating what I did
and did not do
for/against future regenerous climate health
when these same children experience
their children’s
children
appearing resilient
against degeneratively persistent
health wealthing doubt.

What I have imagined doing
win/win with others
I have seldom done.

What we have cooperatively planned doing
win/win with and for and of others
we have seldom undone.

What I have not imagined doing
by my self
investment
he could not easily imagine
to proclaim health
resiliently accomplished

ReInvesting more
in what would otherwise remain personal turf
behind some gilded
and tightly closed
front door
of alternating deep peaceful solitude
and further anticipation
of comfortably laureled silence,

Enough,
at last,
he said

With my righthand
lonely panic
writing in lamenting internal voices

Waiting for his first large-staged break
into an appreciative and prepared audience
to receive each other’s great health-systemic wisdom
wealthing win/win networks

As transubstantiated
by our own integrity experience.

Gaia Steps Out

Gaia steps out
to listen

She may roar in full voiced
crescendo

Then retreat, hiding
anticipating with global delight
diminuendo

Tomorrow
our first perfect win/win day
when no win/lose to lose/lose
has unpromisingly happened
to trigger my anxiety,
innuendo

Of win/win delight
empowering Sun’s sacred
yellow persevering light

Gaia will step out
virginally tomorrow
when magically
and/or tragically invited

To step on out
without even Her inner ego
climate listener
to awesomely admire
what She would have said
if She had only win/win felt
to think dipolar co-arising
Green/Blue cooperative compassion

Stepping into nonviolent dialogue
communications in/exforming
health with wealth
non-zero interdependently reconnecting
today’s worst day potential
with tomorrow’s best day opportunities

Stepping up and out
in defiant celebration
of Earth’s primal gift economy
empowering
and enlightening
democracy’s stealthy health
into and through
20/20 non-custody of systemic eyes
and listening ears
in regenerative win/win review

Stepping into
Green ego/eco-climate balance
double-binary both/and dipolarity
of patriarchalism
monotheism
racism

anthro-supremacism
more risky
when USA patriotically made
in His straight white male image.

Stepping through

devolutionary theories
of surviving orthodox straight white
anthro-capitalistic Win sacred Spirits
by Losing secularized natural sensory feelings

Stepping beyond repressing
Indigenous left/right co-emergent wisdom
bicamerally walking

Gaia steps boldly out
for green cooperative interfaith
multiculturing re-ligions
of EarthTribe’s polyculturing wealth
for cooperatively nurturing species

Stepping through
this Great Green/Blue Transition
restoring EarthLoyal salvation
of NonZero Holy Animated SoulPowers
fed and interfaith fueled
by Sun’s radiant gusty
lusty warming ecological winds
and GrandMother Moon’s ultra-nonviolent
EarthPeace dreams
of light and power

Stepping into calming clouds
shading our green/blue yellowing sphere
with fading frost polarities
emerging brown drought dust spots
and slowly rising warming oceans
surfing up super-wet hurricanes
and windstorms

She steps on
in response to some safety question
about healing filling silence
when the only voices still available
are outside creature voices

Stepping into Gaian ancient narratives
of revolutionary light
sweeping aside dualdark bilateral feelings,
evolutionary progressive win/win process
for thriving ecopolitical wealth
of winds fertilizing warm waters

Gaia steps toward Heaven shining
on EarthEmpowering Justice,
ego/eco-systemic
bicameral Green/Blue/Red Peace

Stepping regeneratively win/win,
generatively win/lose,
degeneratively lose/lose

Gaia steps around
and over
and under today’s worst health pandemic
to invite tomorrow’s integral sacred promise
providing a safe healthy space
and future paradise time
when no bad thing
could possibly yet have already happened
except anxiety
about win/lose anxiety

Foreseeing an unforgiving
merciless Green Gaian Rage
against our super-redwinged
anthroprivileged selves

Yet, even so,
Gaia bicamerally steps out
to non-violently listen

mediate
restore interdependent Ego’s
healthiest EcoJustice

UnRepentant Self Idolaters

“The simplicity
of total trust
is one of the most powerful forces
in the world.”
Sogyal Rinpoche

The Rinpoche’s faith
in radically democratic trust,
feels too wildly green-inclusive madness
to address the therapeutic mediator’s,
and/or non-violent communication mentor’s,
and/or EarthCentered restorative justice student’s
non-elite, grassroots-biased dilemma:

“Oops, this unrepentant predator,
too patriarchally
and capitalistically ego-centered,
is both dissociatively wrong
and illicitly
and immorally
pathologically winning
privileged yet again.”

A similar faith statement
to the Rinpoche’s
feels closer to a median mediator’s mark:

The integrity
of fully informed
and resilient democracy
is one of Earth’s deepest empowering functions
found in cooperatively win/win compliant WorldViews
spiritually
and naturally,
co-arising political
co-invested economic
ego/eco-systemic responsibility.

To recognize, re-cognize,

Deeply heard and appreciated
as integral residents with integrity
enlightening Earth LifeSystems
and compassionately communicating,
listening for and speaking of,
democratically healthy trust communities,

Where multiculturing diversity
is appreciated
and win/win strategic compliance
with ego/eco-systemic bilateral flexibility,
creolizing flow,
transubstantiating functional standards
for cooperative democratic stewardship
promotes further GoldenRule revolutions,

GoldenStrength Ratios,
GoldenElixir Win/Win TrustFlow
essential for empowering
and enlightening health/wealth trust:

“Oops,
not so much co-gravitating
entropically fatigued
unhealthy bipolar
reactive win/lose competitions,
patriarchal
capitalistic
theocratic
corporate business as usual distrust.”

Yet rather more
left/right-winged bicameral democracy,
co-arising dipolar trust,
faith, if you please,
in active

A Healthier Patriotism

My own patriotic U.S. extended family,
historically,
and currently
remains StraightWhiteMale privileged
in our collective memories,
if not imaginations,
of spiritual communion
with all the more privileged saints
present,
past,
and future

But, we have also suffered
from rather too much faith in capitalism,
which, like democracy,
is frequently faulted as miserable,
but also lauded as better
than all the socialistic
communistic
devilistic
totalitarian
fascist
foreign
threatening
terrifying
anger-inducing alternatives.

Capitalism of our encultured
multigenerational minds
with left-hemisphere dominant brains
favoring natural secularized competitions
between saints and sinners
of diversely threatening monocultural privilege,
persuasions fundamentally supremacist
for democracy in theory
so long as not in perceived conflict
with self-serving capitalism in daily personal practice,
natural and spiritual,
secular and sacred,
ecological and theological.

We are egocentric
sometimes narcissistic
always bootstrap individualistic
evangelical redemption ecopoliticals
but focused on BadNews
of our need to invest in violent self-defense
against Marxist communism out there
in Hell

Not to be confused with commitment to GoodNews
of sacred divine communion
within our privileged StraightWhiteMale places
of apartheid worship
in awe and wonder
dogmatically committed to our StraightWhiteMale God

Made military-industrialized
in our best capitalistic,
not really quite so democratic paternalistic
image of left-hemisphere
StraightWhiteMale rightfully empowered
historical/cultural dominance.

So, there we have it,
this chaotic bilateral dissonance
between our powers of political democratic enlightenment
through whole open-systemic dialogue,
and our confusion about economic uncooperative self-empowerment
at the necessary (either/or thinking) cost of Other disempowerment,
gone sadly win/lose awry
through endless polarizing debate assumptions

That if someone wins,
then all others playing our eco-political game
must lose,
which sounds very much like
survival of the fittest
rightest
left-brain dominant species
OVER AGAINST
Earth’s whole open system
green/blue
ecological/theological success.

Like our dominant left-hemisphere academic theory
of secularized win/lose evolution
is more anthropocentrically capital-headed
and self-righteously defensively effective
than Earth’s sacred WINblue/WINgreen
ego/eco-politics
of polypathic political dialogue
empowering through GoldenRule democratic resilience,

And right hemisphere
polyphonic economic enlightenment
co-invested through Golden Octave Ratios
in interdependent multicultural dialogue,

Holonic nonzero sum,
polynomially left GroupTheory
and polyvagally bicameral right/left Win/Win GameExperience

My extended global
multicultural family
history and future
with more resonant
healthier cooperative democracy
embedded in Earth’s ecosystemic wealth,

Co-invested across multi-generations
of MotherEarth’s wise-dialogue
win/win eco-political
eco-feminist regenerators

Not of colonizing political
and anthropocentric economic privilege
but of democratically co-invested integrity
in sacred green/blue communion.

What Is Love’s Difference?

What is the difference

from Zero-Sum WinLose capital incomes?

Why do
Permaculture Designs
and Restorative Sacred Justice Resolutions
share the same healthy wealth goals?
If they do,
and why don’t they,
if they don’t?

What is the health value comparison
between competitive LeftBrain dominant educational disciplines
and cooperative Right/Left predominate deep learning co-invitations?

What is the therapeutic value
noticing differences between invidious comparisons
and virtuous contrasts,
between bipolar oppositions
and dipolar co-arising appositions?

What is difference
and sameness
within non-violently healthy communication
and compassionately wealthy co-empathy?

What are cooperative tipping point systems
in-between ecological LeftBrain health-cultures
and theological RightBrain sanctuary climates?
Between secular

and spirit,
exhale

Theological Mediation

I asked our local Unitarian-Universalist minister
if she could see God
as Original Creative Source of Earth (OCSE).

Eventually,
after a rather long pause,
peaceful, not anxiety producing,
she said Yes.

I asked the Shiloh Baptist Bishop
if he could know God
as Abba,
as did Jesus of Nazareth.

He thought about this,
a rather odd yet warm paternal question,
perhaps a trick?
a test?
But, eventually, trusted us enough
to add his Yes.

I asked the All Souls U-U minister,
Would she be willing to imagine,
to heuristically assume,
for the next hour,
that what she feels inside
and believes outside,
what she hopes and faiths,
compassions as OCSE
might be, or at least slowly become,
synonymous with the more patriarchal sounding Abba,
perhaps yangish Abba
to her OCSE yintegral felt intelligence.

She found this a lot to take in
hold
juggle
and yet listen and speak with integrity
all in this unsafe time of confrontation.
But, Why not?
she asked, rhetorically,
I assumed.

Then I asked the Shiloh Baptist Bishop
the same question,
in reverse,
with Abba still as yang
and OCSE as yin

This felt appropriate,
and not really unorthodox
and therefore theologically safe,
to AfricanAmerican him,
so he said Yes, of course,
history supports an AfroCentric
Original Creative Source
for all human natures.

From there
They seemed to enjoy co-discovering
ecological analogies
for theological regeneration
and degeneration
And theological metaphors
for ecological healing
and wounding.

With nothing much more for me to do
as multicultural mediator of eco/theo-logical peace
restoring win/win justice,
I began outlining
how we might join our choirs
in con-celebration,
singing gospel anthems
while engaging our combined sacred Body
in tai-chi stretches
into and back out of
fluid mindbody positions.

Peace Mediating Poetry

Thanks so much for forwarding
these John Paul Lederach stories
of un-learning academic approaches
to peace mediation.

I wonder if you remembered
my ongoing certification process
for justice-restoring mediation
in complex multicultural conflicting histories;
which are typically antithetical to resilient peace
through ongoing safe and healthy relationships.

With this background,
I was struck by “un-learning”.

To regain his poetic heart,
to remain resonant interdependently forward,
to give priority to emotional intelligence,
to remain actively curious about multicultural context,
and win/win strategic roots of issue-devolution,
we do well to relearn left-brain dominant communication lessons
to co-arise right-mind prominent compassionate listening
before speaking of how to win more,
or at least lose less,
through competitive win/lose
either/or assumptions
contrary to the opulence of Nature-Spirit
function and flow ZeroZone patterns
everywhere immanently transcendent.

From this non-dualistic place
un-learning academic cognition hierarchical models,
maps pointing up to win
and down to comparatively lose conflicts
of self-survival interest,
feels more like relearning both/and,
higher and wider and deeper points
of left with right minded skills,
loves within interdependent complex feelings
thoughts
passions
curious cooperative historical interests,
emerging courageously power-with
2020 re-vision anticipations.

May Sarton, sometimes a poet, observes
“It is good for a professional
to be reminded…
professionalism is only a husk,

That the real person
must remain an amateur,
a lover of the work.”

“…if to be a poet
means allowing life to flow through one
rather than forcing” love/life
“to a mold the will has” calcified;…

“If it means learning…
the day shape[s] the work,
not [just] the work,
the day,
and so live toward essence
as naturally as a bird
or a flower”

In a meadow
arrayed in warm-lit splendor
health and beauty,
healthy beautiful wealth
optimized by transcendent right-brain interdependence,
metaphoric neurological relationship,
analogical
ecological
theological re-communication,
holonic co-operation with Earth-wombed Mother’s
healthiest past through future.

We are increasingly invited,
by left with right minded correlations,
to want to do
what our healthiest ego says we must,
and to love what we ego-must
do to ego-eco-theo-logically want
to retain wealth of cooperative inter-communion,
healthy immanent/transcendent relationship climates
becoming/being the opposite of excommunicated,
the apposition of impeached
by disloyal and hate-filled over-reactions
heralded by the insufficient love
of our hierarchical and too-monocultural forefathers

Invites us to restore EarthJustice
one momentary win/win relationship choice
in a lifetime of sacred multicultural invitations.
