Sighed Earth’s River

I heard a new term today,
sighed Earth’s River,
“spiritual intelligence.”

I have become familiar with
cognitive intelligence,
before that emotional intelligence,
before that contextual intelligence,
similar to climate intelligence
throughout life’s tributaries,
branches
and root well-springs.

My waters do not claim these are strengths;
more familiar as opportunities
for further flowing redevelopment.

But,
just as I am not entirely clear
where emotional awareness ends
and environmental noticing begins,
so too,
where might Earth’s physical context end
and sacred Spirit’s awareness transcend signs
seen,
sighs heard?

I wonder,
rooted in my ego-centering experience,
if feelings flow toward ego inside wet identity
as contextual warm intelligence
ebbs from eco-outside co-investment;

If eco-political context,
empowering and disempowering
natural flowing energies,
welcomes,
invites,
embraces,
baptizes with awe and wonder,
spiritual intelligence of universal individuation,
river-bedded identity
co-arising heart-felt rhythms,
breath
surfing up and down,
smiles clown
and frowns crown

Polypathic signing language,
polyphonic rhythm,
polyculture flowing systems,

Analogical EarthNature
unveiling metaphoric Spirits,

Secular purpose
compelling sacred meaning

Signing reasons,
sighing seasons
pushing up
and flowing down.

To Free The World

I heard today
a corporate goal
“To free the world of cancer.”

What I heard, instead,
“To free the Earth of human toxic nature.”

Often rooted
in feelings of not belonging,
not being good enough,
not even fitting in sufficiently,
too toxic,
unbenign,
too loudly aggressive
and/or quietly sinister
to be known and appreciated as I am,
as we are,

Can easily confuse discriminating effect
with intent to discriminate against,

Can confuse left-hemisphere deductive cultural privilege
with Straight
White
Male
middle-class through filthy rich
Militaristic-Capitalistic Supremacy.

I worry
our left-hemispheres invest too much
in from-above theologically-driven
retributive justice for sins of our Fathers
and anthropocentric analysis

Before noticing possibilities
for win/win economic/ecological
co-passionate empowering feelings
responsible wants
ecofeminist needs,
longings to win by others losing their patriarchal sense of belonging,
longings to win with others winning,
longings to not lose too awfully much more
while over-privileged
over-fed
over-watered
and emotively under-educated
right-hemispheres continue to lose hope of safety,
to lose faith in economic/ecologicaql co-investment
through resilient/resonant cooperative thoughts
and feelings and actions,
non-violent communications and co-educations
featuring GoldenRule energy democracy
listening and speaking,
acting and reflecting,
regenerating positives and degenerating negatives

Which generally involves
a great deal more curiosity-driven listening
for win/win neglect,

And a lot less brazenly proclaimed shaming
and blaming
for past win/lose abuse,
like a cancer
rabid and viral Yang
overpopulating living Earth
while not worshiping Her

Right hemisphere
sacred flow of yin-time
dipolar co-arising ecological
health-resonant
warm-latticed womb
of energy democracy motions,
more win/win
empoweringly benign.

Congressional Grace

I’m still reading Your Resonant Self,
by Dr. Sarah Peyton,
speaking of how contempt
destroys relationships
formerly cooperative
and, thereby, healthy.

Disgust about oneself
and contempt against Other
are interrelated,
like ego and eco,
like Yang and Yin,

“Humans seem to be capable of disconnecting from others
[and our disgusting selves]
on a large scale
or small scale.” (p. 209)

I’m reminded of listening to the Trump Impeachment Debate,
hearing contempt for democratic dialogue,
for loyalty to trust,
transparency,
vulnerability to unmediated light,
healthy curiosity,
courage to choose compassion,
for self and other,
for ego and eco,
rather than contempt.

Not that congressional debates
are suddenly plagued by partisan win/lose rhetorical strategies.

As a communication
and a psychology major,
I learned ancient techniques for persuasion,
for attitude change.
But, an underlying safe
non-partisan environment
of mutual trust,
of loyalty to a healthy Earth,
precludes giving way to the contagious temptations of contempt
against any OtherParty,
disgust about endemic economic and political corruption
of my own run-away win/lose internalized Party.

But, I have two points
seen more clearly through Dr. Peyton’s “Resonance”:

One,
we are capable of national disconnecting shared-identity contempt
against threatening Other
because we were born win/win capable,
from warm attachment healthy birth
of cooperative compassionate development
toward healthy adult/adult resilient relationships,
rooted in our shared destiny
as bicameral EarthDwellers,
EarthTribe,
Mother EarthWomb Integralists.

Second,
contempt grows nationalistic partisanship
because localized compassion can also go viral,
global,
universal
contagious wealth of health-empowerment values
making resonant living systems possible,
re-creative potentiating

As darkness
can be noticed as dark
only by those capable
of remembering light,
power womb enlightenment,
empowerment,
passion,
compassion,
advent,
Christmas Birth,
Lent,
Easter EgoDeath,
Republic elitism,
Democrat non-elitism,
rhetorical contempt,
non-violent narrative,
red rightwing rage,
green leftwing synergy

Wishing all ego-parties
and ecosystems
healthy wealth of EarthPassionate ChristMass
political body-minds
economically double-bound nature-spirits
secular-sacred cooperative co-investors
both out and in
within Earth CoPassion.

DisOrganized Religion

As traumatized as I am
by the history of organized elitist creeds,
including religious and judicial,

I am even more terrified
by my experience of disorganized natural spirituality,
dissociated bicamerality,
unenchanting mono-laterality,
win/lose egocentrism,
narcissism,
lose/lose climates of nihilism,
anthropocentrist chauvinism,
inhumane unnatural straight white male business as usual supremacy,
left brain dominant elitism.

I get it,
I notice,
unpopular conflict of legitimate interest decisions
have followed win/lose monotheistic
competitive
stress-inducing
sleep-depriving
evolutionary economic modeling
of mortal depression trends,

But,
we could expand this win/lose left-brain dominant assumption
to include confluence of multicultural interests,
multiplication where lies monoculturing divisions,
summations where now lie win or lose negations
of all that lies outside patriarchal structures
of incorporated militarized competitions.

We might, together, warmly notice
chaotic decisions follow monoculturing elitist paths
of least win/lose Business As Colonizing Usual memory patterns.

We might refocus
away from in-toxic-ation with lose/lose mortal nature systems
oppressed by win/lose monopoly, at best, future aggressive prospects
for EgoCenters v EcoEarth natural power economies,
eventual inevitable loss,
depression,
degenerative ultimate pathology trends
of dissociation.

We might notice
who chooses to make elitist SWM corporate
retributive justice decisions.

We might notice,
with more win/win warm empathy,
disproportional placement of military-industrialized young adult wounds,
reducing sacred MotherEarth to a convenient waste disposal site,
natural (so un-spiritual?) resource extraction,
repression,
and anthro-centric theft,
pollution of air,
water,
soil,
left-brain dominant minds,
win/lose informed deformed anti-bodies.

We might notice
several displaced non-elite subcommunities
subclimates suspicious of SWM enculturation
having been history’s stress absorbers,
racist
and elitist
and sexist
and homophobic dissociation,
segregation,
apartheid,
non-elite capital income prejudice
and win/lose ecopolitical perpetuation,
limited win/win communication access,
left/right co-empowerment life-skills,
co-relational peace intelligence,
co-empathic intention toward healthiest wealth,

We might win/win notice
limited access to mind and body health resources,
assurances,
restorations,
reweavings,
regenerations of integral wealth and value polities

Listening with more multicultural right-brain intelligence
and speaking with less monocultural left-brain verbal dominance,
on behalf of noticing
rigvht’brain’s long matriarchal ecofeminist herstory
of interdependent
domestically and globally intersectional metaphor,
poly-paradigmatic health systems
for win/win EarthMother thrival.

We might notice
this 2020 bicameral revolution
revisions every win/lose Business As Usual
systemic thing

Into an interdependently living
organic
global, yet universal
integral
synergetic
multicultural communication
co-relational
regeneratively resilient
energy democracy.

As traumatized as I am
by the history of organized religion,
I am even more terrified
by Earth’s subclimate of succeeding spiritually
without also winning EarthRight naturally.

Exhaust

Asking why our partisan democratic experiment
appears to be
failing feels like asking why our global climate
appears to be
failing feels like asking why old age
appears to be
a failing.

Political minds,
natural bodies,
spiritual individuals
reflecting upon lose/lose thought and felt
tragic and absurdly nihilistic outcomes
where we originally expected win/win Paradise

Found in what is personal and political
and economic re-investment
in health and/or pathology choices

Earth and/or extending families center
toward more health
to also win wealth of yin-flow
potentiating powers slowing down
to process Business As Failure Usual,

Winning capital-monopolized shadow-wealth
to win unhealth of evermore
isolating Yang-strength
to overpower
where matriarchal/child love re-memories
could only empower with hugs
and songs

While asking
why our partisan democratic win/win experiment
in win/lose competitions
appears to be lose/lose
Failing feels like asking why our global climate
appears to be
Failing feels like asking why
old cooperatively-owned communal age
appears to be
a failing.

Between Heaven and Hell

Singers and dancers,
artists and writers,
philosophers and poets,
academics and health professionals,
parents and teachers,
actors and contemplatives,
grandparents and children,
live and die between Heaven and Hell.

Between Heaven’s interdependent sensory Enlightenment
and Hell’s individual secularized Industrious-Militant Revolutions

Pathology and sin result from severing healthy spiritual tools
for development
from degenerative denatured fake-wealth weapons
for destruction.

Heaven’s tools restore peace
where re-tooled weapons
without divine mercy
redistribute Hell’s sure-fire punishments.

Sacred tools,
like bicameral hearted minds,
were
and are
for hunting,
gathering
harvesting
cooking
serving
cleaning
recycling
composting
regathering,
impressing health-restoring FuturePowers.

Weapons were
and are
for killing
threatening
hating
condemning
judging
repressing
depressing
suppressing wealthy MultiGenerational Matriarchal FlowCycles.

Technological tools,
post industrial,
have evolved from
WorldWideWebs of Heaven
for cooperative social health information

Too often devolved into propaganda weapons
against WorldWideWalls for self-ghettoizing Hell
promulgating competitive anti-social disinformation.

Sacred tools, verbal and non-verbal,
derive from
and help build
heart-paths toward progressive liberties in love
and conserving equitable and responsible compassions.

Secularized weapons
contrive from
and help destroy
other paranoid
rabidly bipolar
mind pathologies.

Sacred tools serve immortal life.
Secular weapons serve up violent death.

Just as word choice
is the smallest detail
of communal win/win communication,

Weapon choice is the smallest
and also least cognitively wealthy, part
of commercial and residential conscious win/win choice-making
well-tooled
politically healthy
true-wealth conserving co-investment,

Articulating
incarnating
re-creating
sacred life evolving in-between
LeftBrain’s ideas of Heaven
and RightBrain’s experiences of Hell.

Experiments in Communication

Life is an experiment
for growing compassionate communication,
as any sex therapist
will tell you;
not too fast
yet not too slow.

Ego/Eco-Investing
is a bilaterally beneficial health experience
designed to sustain resilient communion,
as any child
retaining co-empathic emotional intelligence
may hear
and taste
and see
and smell you.

Integrity is a natural hugging exercise
damaged by leftbrain dominant fragmentation,
as any academic verbal behavioral therapist
or economist
or partisan politician
will cripplingly show and tell you.

Rabidly over-populating win/lose predators
sniff for money,
other useful assets,
capital-infested fed-heads,
any potential nutrients,
Then bleed you dry,
pee, and or poop, on you,
Then move on.

Compassion’s economic profile looks rather different,
more of a healthy cooperative wealth experience
designed to feed,
not ignore,
emotional intelligence,
To sustain resilient ecofeminist communion,
to gather win/win expectant communicators;

Precisely the opposite of dispassion,
an unhealthy dominatrix leftbrain
too western monocultural prominent
loss of rightbrain interdependent emotional intelligence
empowered
outflowing
inflowing power, creolic resonance,
outflowing healthy wealth of resilience.

Love is an empowering experience
of and for polypathic global communication
as any ecotherapist
may respectfully hug you,
and a tree,
equally.
