Violence Separates Us

My senior minister just now
pointed out and in toward Washington
aware of this extraordinary Time.

Violence separates us
from the ordinary
every time,
she speaks from her own experience.

I quickly agree.

Then, notice ways I do not agree
if violence denotes
feelings of violation.

Violence does not separate military time
from ordinary civilian time;
we call that chronic stress disorder,
mental problems,
spiritual issues,
weaponized opposition.

Violence does not separate
poor people
marginalized people
ignored, neglected, and abused species,
animals,
trees,
rivers,
oceans,
soil,
air,
Earth,
from ordinary
Business As Usual Time.

This statement reminds me
of two opposing experiences
in my own life,
white privilege,
where violence is what happens to other people,
and gay male child,
all growed up in a homo-hate environment,
where ordinary violence was about what I deserved
if I were caught
being me.

We want violence to be the exception
to cooperative economics,
nonviolent communication,
restorative EarthJustice politics,
empowerment,
enlightenment experiences
of multicultural healthy wealth,
for all EarthCreatures
and living ecosystems.

Still,
on this dark night
it feels hard to painfully remember
that violence is more exceptional
to ordinary experience
for some Haves
as compared to HaveNots.

GreenDemocratic Health Images

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

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

Notice
your democratic bodymind
is an open
holistic
ego/eco-centering
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,
capitalistic
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
organic
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
spirit/nature
sacred/secular
eco/ego-systemic wealth,

Resonant trust,
resilient love,
trusting compassion

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

Spangled Star Banners

Oh say, did you notice
a national predative anthem?
Moving immediately
urgently,
without reflection of starlight
sent or received,

From waving flags predicting weapons
fueled by complexly masculine
emasculating
militarized corporate industries
of mutual defensive risks
against international cooperative opportunities
to coinvest

In smoke-filled dawns of manifest destiny
toward freedom for all
self-righteous straight white males
especially with a divine right
as Earth’s owners of enslaved
exploited property,
and home to the brave mercenaries
of death
and dying
and divestment technologies.

This anthem
is based on a patriarchal
powerful
psychological
and spiritual
and natural
and ecological
theological error.

Nowhere in our personal experience
nor our economic or political history
do we fight for freedom.

We do fight against oppression
but we flee,
apart or together, toward freedom.

Emigration is about exodus
toward hope and freedom.

Declaring wars,
expressing
and investing
our collective fears and angers,
These are about lands taken from reserved,
and feminized
and marginalized
and enslaved laborers,
forced immigrants into non-elite oppressions
of nationalism
patriarchalism
elite v non-elite dualism,
divides,
absence of win/win communication,
xenophobia
monoculturing suppressions
repressions

Where polypathic left with right win/win prominence
longs for polycultural confluence
rather than cognitive/affective dissonance,
flag waving
nationalistic predative anthems
sung empty-heartedly
with elitist left-brain opulence.

Praising EcoFeminist Climates

Economically comfortable civilians,
without militarized propaganda indoctrination,
without physical neglect or abuse experience,
without religious blame and shame intimidation,
may sustainably recognize themselves as safe,
while stressed about why they do not matter,
do not feel needed
or even uniquely loved and wanted.

We are not born this way.
When an infant
receives no environmental cues
providing chronic stress
about “Am I safe?”
then the right-brain’s, “Do I matter?”
remains dormant,
unquestioned
within early co-empathic win/win default.

The social
and political
and economic question of interdependent value
is assumed to be Positive
when the left-brain is resiliently satisfied
about ego-safety,
thrivability for the foreseeable future
rooted in rapidly growing environmental nutrition experience;
ecologically healthy,
more than pathological,
climates of enculturation.

I have learned,
especially during my win/lose adolescent exploration years,
but not only then,
that meeting all criteria for physical safety
speaks to the Negatives healthy mindbodies must avoid,
toxicities endemic to social-political risks
of left-brain dominant intelligence,
but only implicitly hints at co-arising dipolarities
of and for our interdependent wealth healthy identity
through win/win communication,
intersectional effectiveness,
sacred meaning and spiraling vocation,
secular purpose and cooperative avocation.

The feminist,
knowing s/he is against patriarchy
and concomitant monocultural corporatism,
monopolistic commodification of social values,
colonizing win/lose hyperactive intent
rooted in supremacist
safe and secure sense of entitlement,
yet not able to articulate what s/he is for,
is a good example
of one who believes s/he could be safe
on a right-brain prominently interdependent
win/win matriarchal Earth,
but has no active enculturation
to thereby uncover egoleft-ecoright
health-wealth interdependent meaning.

Going back to my original list
of environmental hazards to avoid
for left-brain sustainable safety security,
absence of militarized lose/lose
cognitive/emotive co-arising complex chaos
does not explicitly invite peaceful win/win compassionate communication,
communion,
community.

Avoiding physical neglect and abuse is necessary,
but not at all sufficient,
to sustain emotional appreciation and active support
through healthy wealth
of cooperative inter-relational experiences,
recreative joy and profoundly creative celebration,
like making robust resonant harmonies
music,
regenerating music’s internally felt dance,
not only solo,
but with a partner,
within a family,
a community of peers,
a shared globally mediated stage
of song and dance
resistance and celebration
of shared compassion.

Avoiding religious blame and shame games
is not sufficient
to discover natural/spiritual nondualistic win/win
compassion games
defining wealth as refining health,
uncovering right-brain resonance
by discovering left-brain resilience,
explicating opportunity for meaning
without implicating great risk of unsafe egocentric purpose,
informing yang/yin robust intersectionality
without exflowing left or right mindbody egalitarian intelligence.

It remains easier to let go of win/lose patriarchal cultures
as we become more adept
with grabbing hold of win/win ecofeminist climates.

Military FireWork

He said the undiplomatic cost
to all of us freedom celebrators,
to firstborn sons and daughters,
to last born future children,
would be far less
than its liberating value.

Value for and against whom?

Value for and against what healthy purpose?

Value for and against which wealthy constituents?

He couldn’t say,
or wouldn’t,
or shouldn’t

Because he couldn’t listen
and wouldn’t savor
democratic peace.

Tools Become Weapons

LeftBrain uses words
like communal tools
and autonomous weapons

While RightBrain invites rhythms and patterns of sound
and silence
like poetry
and lyrics,
sometimes angry and frightened turbulence
sometimes loving and reassuring sibilants
murmuring Earth’s quietness.

Of these,
LeftBrain weaponed words
cannot be truly free
speech to unwarned
so unprotected
listening libertarians,
messages fired against militant non-listeners
already armed to demolish
voices unprepared for retribution.

Healthy tools become deadly weapons
when used against
those they were transparently designed
to vulnerably serve
strength of LeftBrain truth
as RightBrain’s chiming beauty.

Without these two
held proactively together,
free speech is any message
from any medium
tragically unfree.

Retirement Planning

Retirement planning
may feel like civilian planning
as military ballistics continue incoming
so persuasively my objective is not to win
but to get home again,
although I sadly know
home will never be that home of memory sustained
as comparative peaceful compass.

What is my therapeutic vocational problem
retiring from front-line maddening trenches?

How much remaining spacetime do I have,
does Earth have, for living rather than dying,
and why does this feel so spare time
often mere despairing,
and why “spare”
and why “mere”?

Despite books and perhaps entire libraries on human purpose,
meanings,
ethology of nature,
callings for proper industry,
organic integrity of humane function,
whether blessed by divine inspiration
or mere humane perspiration
(and, again, why “mere”?)
I find too precious
this my footnote of non-historic proportion
that my vocation may not truly ever self-optimize
through individual ongoing autonomous discernment,

But also through healthier, more robust, fabric
interdependent
cooperative
democratically woven
of loving WinWin future society

CoDefining culture having let go of Win/Lose
evolutionary violence investment theories
in favor of overwhelming healthy
regenerative retiring revolutions
of Earth’s slower-grown therapies.

This is not Weber’s mechanical society;
Retiring histories are more mysteriously woven
like an organic beehive
ornamenting a strong-rooted universal tree,
or an ant colony
preparing for winter
within an ancient-grounded sanctuary
society for future multiculturing
creolizing
WinWin enchanted colonies.

What happens when we retire
into a newly autonomous vocational choice?
When all prior spacetime investments
appear to have been apprenticeships
toward what?
Dying?
Living with more freedom
for integrity
and WiseElder slow-grown discernment?

We are so hard-pressed to say
and do
and be wise discerners for internal and external peace
when all our training has been for Win/Lose battles

I struggle to prepare for extending family love
in ever more isolating autonomy
from new life invitations.

What does my environment,
our climate,
my experience,
our story about communal health development
still respect
and hope for loving, yet active, peace?

How do we call and gather elders together
to restore this profoundly interactive peace
inside as outside as inside
Earth’s justice
re-uniting integrity
toward universal love
and away from nationalistic violent hate?

Where do secular models
and sacred maps
together tipping point
toward personal
and political
and economic
and ecological
and theological healthy meaning
today,
rooted in all our civilian yesterdays
with hope for this next regeneration
already waiting within these ancient bones
and eyes for climate healing
within
as without,
below
as above,
inhaling old impoverished retributions
exhaling new health restorations
peaceful home

Retiring developments of active hope,
remaining positive energy,
non-violent doing,
being,
communicating,
praying,
experiencing,
medicating,
meditating,
healing,
living to continue breathing in
dying to breath enrichment out once more.
