Golden Climate Values

JudeoChristian monotheists,
from fundamental conservationists
on back to radical creolizing multiculturists
inspiring nature-spirit co-revolutions,
declare YHWH to be unchanging,
in constant loving relationship with planet Earth
and all EarthTribes

And therefore constant integrity,
synergy,
creativity,
regenerativity,
macaronically iconized as creolizing fertility.

Mystics and prophets,
seers and heretics,
science-fiction and deep ecology writers,
teach a more complex view.
God as constantly unchanging Change,
both restoratively therapeutic
and retributively traumatic Processor,
co-arising regenerative flows of Win-Win nutritional history
with degeneratively evaporating energy.

Mahatma Gandhi
and many others after,
and probably before, him
taught and mentored
Become the Change today
you long for Earth’s Change tomorrow.

So,
putting all this theology and ethology together,
if God is constant ClimateChange
and Gandhian mentors are wise
to advocate our becoming Beloved Change today,
right and left within this timeless NOW,
then this would be another way of saying
and doing

We could all cooperate better
as polypathic, yet with merely mortal EgoMemories,
descendents of Elder gods and goddesses
polyculturally co-creating restorations
healing Earth’s sacred growing ClimateChange,

CoMessiahs
who are also,
in this limited atmanic
EarthBound
ecoHeaven-At-Hand sense,
Bodhisattvas restoring
Ego/EcoJustice CoMentorships,
within as without,
as below, so above

Karma-yogis
practicing
humility of EarthLove–yagna multicultural embracing praxis,
compassion of positive faiths, truths, trusts–tapas co-empathic disciplines,
generosity of cooperative hope–dana GoldenRule social pragmatism.

And of these three,
the greatest diastatic culmination
is Love.

Which some may see as Golden Matriotic EarthDaydreams
and ultra-violet
by dualdark competing nightmare-powers
of constant ClimateChange.

Tao of Optimal Health and Climate Care

Nursing and nurturing
can often be used synonymously.
To nurse a baby
is first to nurture a cherished infant.

They share a nutritional history
of healthcare giving
and receiving,
delivered best and most durably
when care works coincidentally both ways
in all Win-Win bilateral directions.

Up and down and laterally across hierarchies,
networks,
dialectal frames,
nutritional and health-care intentional environments,
healthy communities,
extending families,
multicultural tribes,
polyculturing landscapes.

Nursing,
unlike surgery,
is not done as well to and for patients,
from above and without,
and is best done within nurturing gratitude for sufficient patience;
hands on bilateral therapeutic relationships.

Surgery,
like the word abortion,
is about severance,
causing Win-Lose severing effects,
cutting out our regretfully accepted
as necessary loss,
minimizing pathology
as an acceptable exception
to our Hippocratic Oath,
our Golden Rules
of economic and political health-care etiquette,
laws
and just wars against pathology orders.

If healthcare giving and receiving
becomes monopolized but supremacist surgeons,
determined not to accept risk of failure
on their competing against death and decay watch,
within their sphere of authority
and responsibility
and lifeskills,
then supreme surgeons might declare warlike strategies,
wars and fights against
our own holistic multicultural historical integrity
of identity itself, our humane egoselves,
severing us from all other interdependent species
and revolving-nurturing eras
of sacred historic nature.

Surgeons too deductively distracted
by chopping up
and shooting at
and stabbing at
and enslaving
and hating
and fear-mongering
and terrorizing our own Ego-polyculturing selves.

Surgeons medically over-invested in healthcare severance
from our own EarthNature healthcare vocations
and shared nursing identity
as restorers,
as nurturers,
as caregivers
and receivers
healing Embodied EgoCenters within
our nurturing Sacred EcoHome.

Surgery will tolerate cutting hands off
as retribution for theft and greed.

Nursing is most abundant
when hands are left and right on,
inviting appropriately grateful
and humbling therapeutic touch,
voice on,
resonantly singing in multicultural chorus,
feet on,
investing in co-redemptive restorative directions,
minds within
Earth’s bilaterally revolving Sacred Homes,
bicamerally within,
dipolar healthcare
nurturing v stabbing-in-the-competing-bad-back climates without.

Appropriate proactive therapeutic touch
avoids Win-Lose aggressions,
political isolations
and threats of violence,
social severance of the EliteSurgeons
working against NonElite Nurses,
diagnostic surgery of what MedicinalEarth has conjoined
to organically co-nurture together.

Humbling Gratitude

Monasteries,
both Western and Eastern,
traditionally practice

The Way of Poverty,
A trusting Truth of Chastity,
And a Life of Obedience

To both spiritual and natural authority,
laws,
rules,
practices
both political and ecological
within their diverse sectarian cultures.

Yet this tripartite theme
of natural/spiritual discipleship
follows a nutritionally mentored practice
of both Western Messianic Princes of Peace
and of Eastern Bodhisattva Matriarchal PeaceWarriors

Preaching a Way of Gratitude,
Practicing a Truth of Compassion,
Projecting a Life of harmonic Humility

Within and Without;
within human nature
and also throughout all Earth
as SacredHome, oikos, Eco
with many subclimates,
diverse landscapes,
interrelated species
of and for Earth’s Gaian sacred nature.

A Way of Gratitude
embraces
a Life of profoundly democratic Humility,
avoids plutocratic ego-supremacist hubris,
and grows most abundantly within multiculturing Truths
of compassionate Win-Win choices.

Humility of Ego
avoids fake piety,
finds fake patriotism profoundly sinister and unfulfilling,
grows co-passionate within gratitude’s SacredHome embrace.

Gratitude of Ego
grows polyculturally co-invested with Humility
in awe of all sacred Earth’s Regenerative Natures,
Cultures,
HealthyClimates,
Wealthy-Fertile Landscapes.

And here,
in this sacred EarthSpace and Time
of timeless mythos-logos NOW,
YangLeft EgoCenters
and YinRight EcoCentrists nutritionally embrace
co-passionately nurturing,
restoring ego-peace as also eco-justice.

So too, individual MotherTrees
of Life and Death
reforest Earth’s ecojustice
and cooperatively matriotic peace.

Not merely a Win to Lose
Way of economic poverty for some,
but Win-Win Truth of compassionate wealth for all SacredCreation,
Life of natural-spiritual obedience and abundance
within ecological and ethological laws of meaning
purpose
ritual
celebration
polypathic wonder.

Within full-diastatic
CoMessianic-Bodhisattva harmonic multicolor,
LeftBrain science of cooperative economic humility,
RightBrain arts of compassionate polyculturing health,
conjoined within
positive good health Faith
actively restoring ego/eco-therapeutic Win-Win gratitude
incarnating Sacred Gaia’s karmic Grace.

Playing Old Maid

I recall a card game
probably extending back past the 1950s
called Old Maid.

There was also Authors
and a few other choices
less popular with me.
But Old Maid sticks in mind
as blatantly sexist
and ageist
and, for a country kid
in redneck rural Republican Michigan,
the most fun
of admittedly limited card playing options.

Whoever was stuck holding the Old Maid
at end of game
was the biggest loser,
for obvious reasons.

Who would want to be associated
with that old and useless appendage?

National politics in the U.S.,
all about the marketing, purchase, and sale
of two-year
and four-year terms of public greed responsibility,
increasingly reminds me
of OldMaid gamesmanship.

And, yes,
I don’t really mean gamepersonship.

This game for avoiding loss
of responsibility and authority,
loss of face
rather than gain of grace,
embracing mutual Wins
of shared commitment to health
and cooperatively prosperous safety,

This game in which the OldMaid
is played by aging fossil-fuel industries
played-out too often militarized
ballistic violence,

These OldMaid industrial choices
have most ballistically justified
plutocratic wars
inviting young,
and often most marginalized,
players
to live with losses to OldMaid political stuckness
in the name of patriotic duty,

Although not matriotic integrity
to our own healthy hands
for better Win-Win games
and political
and economic
and personal
and family therapy strategies,
less violently impinged by nationalistic traumas,
fear of losses
holding OldMaid over-industriously held cards.

No one wants to be in unlovely public office
when the last drop of oil
and last glistening gasp of gas
wears through now useless OldMaid pumps
and pistons,
unhappy triggers
and transdegenerational switches,
unlubricated OldMaid economic bitches.

No one wants to be in office
holding the last OldMaid dry-humped card
from a 1950s stacked deck
when 2020 revisions
change climate changing hands
into feminist story books
of how our generation
deliberately and stubbornly chose,
like stiff-necked self-chosen people
of OldMaids and PatriarchalMen,
counter-intuitively choosing the climate pathology card,
fascinated by our own death
and the death of our habitat
and the death of any future
of humane proportion and design,
rhythm and pattern.

When we have so many post-millennial cooperative Win-Win options
to actively hope
and act
and restoratively plan
and therapeutically draw climate health
for both ego and eco justice
and global peace for all,
including sacred Elder Matriotic Maids.

If only Old Feminist Maids and Matriotic Men
had written all required history
and civic lesson school books
and ecopolitical philosophy texts
and medicinal prescriptions
and legislated cooperative multicultural ethics
lesson plans
to practice
practice
practice
cooperation,

I wonder if having the Elder Matriot card
would have been how to win our Win-Win game,
and to do so,
would require letting go of all Old FakePatriot cards
of plutocratic,
and often patriarchal,
Lose-Lose economic-ecological exploitations,

Also post “ClimateChange”
known and named
as habitually competitive ClimatePathologies
longing to restore ClimateHealth.

Past Portentous Futures

My past,
part of this present,
yet not desperately all
or I live too mortally
in our past;
still breathing
heart beating
but no other present signs
of hopeful life.

Just so,
this present
part of our future,
yet not all,
Or we have already died
without our Great Promise;
reluctantly
still shallow breathing
heart dissonantly beating
yet without future active hope
for love;
or end of fear for hate.

I did not intend retiring
into this exclusive vicinity
of domestic quasi-therapeutic family
as my end of future,
but this new beginning
when my past
and our extending present
meet in wealthy gratitude.

I learn positive attitude,
avoiding negative acerbic platitudes,
about others less present
to past pathologies
predicating,
but not reliably predicting,
potential full integrity
of Love’s healthy co-arising futures.

As I age
my true confessions
and growing quieter celebrations
invite and seek to find
this larger future stage
of immortal themes
for incubating cooperative cakes
not left or right out in Eden’s rain
but danced and eagerly devoured inside
outside rappers and rhythmers,
rockers and rollers,
writers and dancers,
performers and story-tellers,
comedians and tragic permacultural operators
lyricists and logists,
whole-group systemitizers and sacred ecologists,
atheists and theists,
competing economists and cooperative empowerers,
concelebrating Win-Win game siblings
enraptured by our own
and others
multiculturing
polypathic
operatic and epic creation
and re-creation,
redemption
and restoration
and reforesting
and polycultural outcome
stories.

Stories
about vulnerable climate pasts
part of this extending present,
but not at all without future hope
within already retiring
co-present re-memories.

Our deepest future stories
share our widest past
articulating each present moment’s vast potential
of vulnerability to doubt
for integrity of Love’s
great transitioning stage,
cooperatives loaned and borrowing
past patriarchally pretentious
macaronic
anthromale-eccentric
ParadisePromise.

Patriarchal Fundamentals of Spiritual HotCake Baking
left out too long
and fat
in the rain;
not so rich,
not so good.

My LeftDominant past,
part of this present,
yet not desperately all
YangLeft without YinRight
or I live mortally,
and tragically,
in our patriarchal past;
still breathing
heart beating
but no other present signs
of hopeful Matriotic-Patriotic
EquiValent
Life.

BornAgain GrandKids

Your grandfather wants to apologize
not just for voting for Donald Trump,
but also for praying he would continue in Presidential Office
with YHWH’s fertile blessings
of sacred ChristCentered Hearts and Minds,
economic and political leadership of divine Retributive Judgment.

Honey,
I think you’re about to lose them
with this punishing narrative.
Why don’t you just tell them he’s sorry
for loving Donald’s Mutual-Assured Destruction,
Lose ecologically now to Lose again economically later
verging off toward
Oops! I guess I blew-up and out the grandkids
without future healthy
cooperative
multiculturing generations
of most any species.

Most any, yes…
but human nature-spirits have already received
redundant fire and water and hurricane warnings,
Prophecies of Awesomely Awful Climate Pathologies
to come in time for our grandkids,
and their probably not bothering with any kids,
and then possibly a faithful remnant
of their potential grandkids,
hopefully more Win-Win acclimated.

So I need to let them know
this was a fault shared by a large vocal USA minority
of supremacist
patriarchal
monotheistic fundamentalists
with retributive justice is JealousGod on their fixated minds
building toward revolutionary
HellFire and Brimstone eruptions
of global ecopolitical conflagrations
and species-generalized holocaust.

Something like that,
yes dear.
Try to tell them we’re sorry
about the Trump thing
without also scaring off their grand-kids
and possibly their Win-Win cooperative grandkids,
more polypathically ecopolitical
and into ReStorative Healing Justice as Grace,
Matriotic Earth Peace,
CoMessianic Judeo-Christian Communion
of Nature-Spirit EarthWonder
and DeMilitarizing Awe,
Bodhisattva PolyCultural Outcome Health and Safety Planners
and Advocates
and Warriors for Global Peace ReStorations,
more integrated ZeroSoul binomial Economic Health
as political EarthTribe ecological wealth optimization,
and other Sacred MotherEarth Ego/Eco CQI Outcomes,
bilaterally Bayesian trend
(0)Sum
Win-Win ReGenerative Outcomes.

Yeah,
but wouldn’t want to scare off the fundamentalist
anti-intellectual great-great-great grandsons,
and further repressed
suppressed
depressed granddaughters,
anti-democratic
anti-egalitarian
anti-humane-divine nondualism,
anti-multicultural
dualLeft-darkRight
totalitarian bad-faith pathological remains
of a once great society.

By then
we’ll have this sacred species as EarthTribe Future investments down
and up to mystical-mythical-ecological confusions,
chaos and complexity Confucians,
or maybe PostMillennial Taoists
of and for ReStorative Justice
and Global Green EarthTribe Peace,
through mutually assured health and safety
timeless and eternal love,
which is seldom discovered
or delivered,
evolved
or much less invited
or even sustainably revolutionary
at the end
of a Lose-Lose (0)Sum gun.

Not to mention the unlikely prospects
of restoring humane-divine love
through an entire global jihad
or HolyWar
or JustWar retributive punishment theory
for Fallen Natures
of competing Infidels.

Honey,
you’re scaring the grandkids again,
and shrinking the great great great grandkids
beyond restorative dimensions of ecojustice
and peaceful dreams.

Sorry love.
OK, kids,
bedtime begins now.
Time to put on your sackcloth and ashes,
and please wait until morning
to report all Revelationary Nightmares,
dualdark evil-live horses,
deductively dominant cosmological disinvestments
away from good-faith truth and trust-telling,
watering the anti-gospel weeds
and not watering to bloom polyphonic flowers
singing full-octave colors
of Grace greets Karma.

Speaking of Karma…

And lack of grateful Grace…

I wonder how the healing service is going
over at the King James Bible Church
for all those Donald Trump voters.

Red and TrueBlue Family

Red and TrueBlue Family–4

Dear Siblings Three,

At least three of us four
have survived this first round
of sharing our seeing Reds
and ourĀ  feeling Blues.

At this point
I imagine our eldest sister
reading with interest,
and/or possibly contempt,
and holding all these things
in her heart and mind.

The other three of us,
two Blue,
elder Brother Red,
each have told our stories,
reviewed our positions
during this first year
of the Trump CEO
Public Sector Administration,
USA.

I did not find an explicitly stated value
or disvalue
shared by all three of us.

There are, of course,
several values and disvalues shared by the two Blues,
Kerry and me,
and two disvalues
shared by RedMike and BlueKerry
are loss of freedom
and loss of safety.
And, although I didn’t say so,
I would certainly put these two
squarely in my disvalues column
as well.

Integrity is a positive value
mentioned by both RedMike and BlueGerald, me.
While BlueKerry does not use the word
I know her well enough to appreciate
this also fits transparently within her values lens
just as venality and mendacious subterfuge
are disvalues
both Blue and Red CoHeld,
and yet too often targeted
by cash-fed multinational media.

Apparently
as we love integrity
we are also fascinated by its evil opposites,
like Lot’s wife
looking over her climate holocaust shoulder
when it would be way better for her health
to dwell on the PromisedLand in front of her.

Blue responses
emphasize health care giving
and sacred gift economy receiving,
restorative justice and peace,
and ecological education
as therapeutic values.

Mike’s Red response
emphasizes moral code,
law and order,
retributive justice
and defensive technologies and personnel
as more saliently held values.

Yet,
these are apparent differences of priority,
not necessarily oppositional Win-Lose differences.
Points of contrast invite comparison
and need not predict disloyalty of mutual incompatibility.

To my surprise,
and dismay,
I do see some points where active RedValues
seem to also be active BlueDisValues,
double-binding Win-Lose Boundary Issues:

RED / BLUE
Divine rulership-authority / degenerate monoculturing climates, cultures
Military strength / loss of global and national safety thru violence
Monocultural intent, monopolistic monotheism / sacred polyculturalism

As I look at these three,
they begin to look like three faces
of one tension
within a shared Sacred PolyPathic Intention:
Retributive blood justice through crusading JustWars
conjoining
Restorative EcoJustice through BiLateral PeaceMaking.
Old Testaments
within New Grace Contexts.

From a Red evangelical Christian frame,
this takes me back to Jesus Christ’s
prime Messianic message
and function
and purpose:
Jesus came to save this entire creolizing Earth
through Abba’s restorative grace economy,
baptism through living water and full enlightenment,
healthy light transubstantiating His Judaic Law and Order
retributive sacred justice through blood sacrifice Traditions,
through just-wars and OldSchool self-righteous jihads
and military might of Caesar’s commodifying Win-Lose coin,
colonizing violence all now washing away
by baptism of Messianic-Bodhisattva redemption,
polypathically sacred,
polyphonically sung and danced
by and through rivers of sacred world-citizen enlightenment,
bilaterally cooperative spiritual experience
of polyculturing Grace
for a world so loved
God created
to regenerate Christ’s EarthBound Eden,
perpetually reborning.

First Nation’s creolizing sacred healthy invitation,
multicultures of and for Earth gratitude,
is Second Constitution’s colonizing,
and King James Bible-rooted,
EnLightenment Intent,
away from monotheistic totalitarianism of Royal Rulership
in favor of polyphonic truths of grace
in democratically evolving cooperative trust,

Father of ego’s Hope,
Son of Earth’s Great Transitional Faith in MultiCulturing Grace,
Spirit of (0)Tao Primal Relationship
humane/divine
through ReStorative EgoPeace
within Sacred EcoJustice
as nature-spirit mentored
by MotherEarth.

So, now I bow
in Taoist-Christian gratitude
for these our gifts
and invite our minds and hearts
to speak through One Grace Way,
bicameral Truth,
bilateral times in loving Life
restoring Eden’s global ReGenesis.

When I was a fundamentalist egocentric child,
I listened and spoke as an innocent child asking Why?
When we ecopolitically mature into One Body of Bodhisattva-Christ,
we speak polypathically
and dream polyphonically
to ask Why Not?

In Jesus’ eternally transubstantiating Name
and Word
and Way
and Truth
and Timeless Life,
Your Brother Gerald,
inviting our most generous 2020 responses
of and for mutual democratic trust
in divinely generous truths
we all can share on Earth
as in Eden’s Heavenly Promise.
