Today Is Different

Today is assiduously
religiously different,
as I review our local RiverEast News.

Every week
Mike Thompson writes a solid Editorial
in a compelling voice.
I expect to only add
my hearty sacred
happy secular “Amen!”

Our nearly fearless Editor and Chief
calls for political “ACCOUNTABILITY!”
like so many others on bipolar Left through Right,

And those still hanging on
with battered nails
to quickly fading dipolar
in-between HAVE-NOT
anthrocultured primacy race
and HAVE
cash class
co-empathic consciousness
that renters and owners need each other
like borrowers and banks
yet feel as competitively apart
as victims and predators,
droning prey and patriarchal colonizers

Insurrectionists,
nihilistic HAVE-NOT anarchists
military industrialized
invade our sacred capitalistic space,
so now, I read,
“there needs to be
accountability.”

I do not disagree, BUT…
AND would you not agree
our shared future will be healthier,
and co-investing wealthier,
if predators claim their own responsibility
for exceeding civil and civic
democratically cooperative authority
through more slow-grown discernments

Rather than passionate placards
preferring hot
and sometimes armed
debate
drama
extraction
capture
imprisonment
enslavement
debacle
bacchanalia,
angry selfie Theater

Fueled by manufactured Bud
more than ancient cannabis buds.

Our angry Editor
lashes nationalistic Republicans out of town,
especially the transcendently unEarthly
Vice President Pence,
praying for “healing” and “unity,”
and not even close enough
for government work
invoking a sacred benediction
through end of term ACCOUNTABILITY!
of blind justice,
thus retributively more equitable
punishing non-mercy
served against irresponsible
angry words
and violently desecrating actions.

Interesting,
I also hear President Biden
passionately praying for “healing” and “unity”
Unity
Unity,
and more silent about punishing justice
held up to public scrutiny
of LeftBrain dominant, Accountability–
not so much RightBrain felt prominent,
CoResponsibility.

Retributive justice of Accountability
is for punishing
the autonomously guilty.

Restorative justice of CoResponsive
Responsibility
is for healing,
and resiliently lasting,
peaceful,
healthy interdependent unity

By divesting of autonomously unEarth-responsive
economic anthrocentric capital gains
and politically privileged responsibility
of patriarchal
capitalistic
military-industrialized
corporate empowered monoculturing supremacy,
anthro-irresponsible intent.

Why is it,
Mr. Editor,
I wonder wander
as I moondrift flow along,

Why is it more important
or realistic
or essential to punish
before moving on to heal:
to set apart and imprison,
to judge
and shame and blame,
before reconsidering unity
through faithful
multicultural dialogue?

This military-first preference
seems to reflect Chief RedCommander
inciting rhetoric
echoing Hitler’s strengths
of hate and violence
and deadening threat
of powerful justice
developing full-throttle
exclusively through our patriotic
overpowering position
of autocratic STRENGTH!

To hold the Alien EcOther
revengefully Accountable.

Actually,
as I dimly recall
my own unfortunate experiences with punishment
and healing warmth restoring healthier wealth
of personal political empowering responsibility,
nonviolent communication
includes inviting proactive practice
of compassionate therapy
through restorative justice,
pursuing multicultural pace
of EarthPeace,

More polytheistically matriarchal
than monoculturally
LeftBrain soulless solely Accountable
for missing opposite experience opportunities
more typically therapeutic
and conveniently,
even co-responsibly,
CoOperative Truths
building healthy democratic Trust.

I’m thinking I learn more powerfully
not from Strength, but uncapitalized weakness,
fluidity,
both/and nuance,
empowering eco-political responsibility
and disempowering ego-individual accountability,
publicized felony revenge
and misdemeanor scorn

Distract from wider experience
deeper Light
by exploring my own disconnected woundedness
evolving lonely feelings of win/lose mortal brokenness

Past failures in responsive civil commitment
to cooperatively hold
and cherish democratic sacred space
at home,
reading the weekly paper,
and WholeEarth abroad,

Rather than my boldest debates
to strongly compete in high risk
armed and violent communication confrontations,

Alarming punitive messages
using win/lose weapons of strong obfuscation,
which are irresponsible,
demanding that EcOthers be held apartheid Accountable
for lack of healthy healing,
cooperative unity,
co-governing skills for building
resiliently healing
trust-struggling
ongoing inclusive dialogue
relationships,

Religiously essential
to any healthy democratic
natural and/or spiritual experience,
constitutional
and/or familial,
anthro-centric
and/or eco-systemic health restoring,
globally political
and/or personal cooperative economics
of ecofeminist
green newLeft/ancientRight deal
co-responsible
resilient
and polypathically resonant
Ego/Earth co-investment

In a different
universally healing
unitarian tomorrow.

Earth’s Empirical LoveSong

If you see and hear and feel,
smell and taste what’s real
about yourself
within our ecosystemic
polyculturing
eco-political cells

Indigenous to Earth’s changing lively habitat
of co-redemptive
bicamerally resilient

Together co-invested secular yang strong
yet also sacredly yintegral WholeEarth bouncy Flow
co-empathically cooperative

no longer co-incidentally passing
in non-violent

Then what difference remains
between your personal
sacred theological
felt enlightening experience,
and our secular ecological
co-empowering theory,
empirical?

I hoped to write
and boldly sing Earth’s holistic
healing love song,
but all I got
was this coincidental moment,
integrity’s merely academic potential
in-between instead.

Meditations on Regeneration

In meditation,
formally creative
and informally recreative,
and in similar forms of conscious self-medication,
and assiduously non-violent internal
yet bicameral communication,

In all these ways of remembering meditation,
my mindbody neural-sensory receptors

from win/lose monopoly

leftbrain limited theophany
monotheistic and obstructed
by my autonomously segregated human bodymind

Resident of humans only need apply

for passionately impassioned compassion communication,
leftbrain verbal
and rightbrain humane felt
non-verbal non-voices
of positive healing
empowering
enlightening co-investment

But, too often
sequestered in human supremacist apartheid,
negative thinking images
of wildly unenlightened
disempowering detachment
from inhumane historical responsibilities

Infinitely bilateral bromides
become fully win/win restored justice promise
when human meditating spirits
choose to reinvest
in Earth’s creative
democratic
dialogical
Ecological Political Nature

Wildly free to loyally,
peacefully,
joyfully,
polyphonically wander
among interdependent natural/spiritual,
outside/inside,
binomial/bicameral/bilateral
metaphysical both/and co-arising
all creature co-empathic paradigms

Experiencing rebirth
through primal ZeroZone solidarity
for winning essential global health
to also win potential meditative
therapeutic existence
in more than AnthroPersistent,
no less than EarthCreation Resilient
sustainable EarthTribe wealth

EgoEmbodied
multi-cultural physicality
yet also re-cognized
EcoPolitically metaphysical

Empowerment extended far beyond
mere LeftWing humane
enlightenment becoming
less RightWing domesticated

Bicameral consciousness
ensnared by delusions of grandeur
in permanent Homo-sapien privilege
as decreed by a jealous monotheistic god
for contemplative healthy humans only,

Polytheistic
and/or atheistic flies
and mosquitoes
need not apply for well-being inclusion,
for win/win co-investment,
regardless of contemplative
wild world vision
and wilderness intention
to exterminate inhumane
bloodthirsty pests

Democratically prescribed

Old Taoists Always Die

I’m a 68 year aged
ecofeminist Taoist,
Yin Unitarian and Yang Universalist
in a bicameral
dipolar co-arising
Left/Right-UnWinged EarthCentric kind of way

Where “permacultural”
presumes death
and resumes life,
both multiculturally held together
in win/win organically optimized resilience

Depolarizing,
restorative Green EarthJustice
and eco-resonant interfaith green peace
through co-passionate communication

Which was an undergraduate fascination for me
before moving on to graduate work
in public economic health administration
and, before that,
in seminary,
theologically reflecting on multicultural themes
in neuro-sensory experiences
memories
liturgies
images
icons of AnthroCentric Divinity;

A self-righteously chosen Humane Species
with a long patriarchal
predative history
of inhumane hegemony

Inspired by erupting dominance
of left-brain deductions,
either/or fundamentalistic reductions
of right-brain intuitive inductions,
both/and feelings of ambiguity
between strength of ego-political democracy
and flow of ecological interdependence,
between ego’s identity
and our win/win ecosystemic habitats
through resonant multicultural wealth

So my own healthy future
feels most likely
while swinging back and forth
in my boundary zone hammock
on my back screened porch
on this dark yet moonlit autumn evening

Appreciating an indigenous-spirited warmth
light breezed watching for stars of light
emerging through backlit clouds
from WestWind future regenerations
of Zero/One
Yin/Yang dipolar co-arising
inside/outside

Back and forth
across bilateral time-centering space
on sacred
cooperative
eco-enormous richness
in this life and death
in-between ungraduated place.

Seductive Election Selections

What is the main difference
and primary points of comparison
between being inductively seductive
and becoming deductively submissive?

Between being illusive
and becoming illusioned?

Between being deluded
and becoming delusional?

Between being precluded
and becoming included?

Between being illusory
and becoming luminated?

Between being enlightened
and becoming relit?

Between being permissive
and becoming remissive?

Between being empowered
and becoming more cooperatively repowered?

Between being in survival operation mode
and becoming out thrival co-operative means?

Seductively sexual,
like inductively sensory-neural,
is in the co-empathic eyes and ears,
nose and throat,

of The Bolder Win/Win v Win/Lose Beholder.

Submissive,
like ecopolitically permissive,
co-operates short- through long-term
DominantYang/SubmissiveYintegrity
polypathic/polyphonic

win/win co-empathic communications.

Can a profoundly autonomous individual organism
be yintegrally submissive
without short- and long-term investments
in becoming eco-politically subservient?
Marginalized?
Enslaved?
Raped?
Imprisoned?
Punished?
Mere subjects of lose-economic benefits
and lose-ecological health Revenge?

EcoFeminist Dialogue,
more multiculturally astute
than AnthroPatriarchal Debate,
is also somehow more positively
permissively
democratically

cooperatively deviant,

ProLife Selection Reflections

RightWing evangelical Capitalists
competitively invested in StraightWhiteMale privilege,

And win-ego/win-ecopolitical LeftWing
multiculturally democratic
prominent LiberalLovers
of EarthRights ecofeminist solidarity

Might together stop
to polyculturally notice

Capitalist competitive debates
do not remember
or co-invest in win/win Left/Right dialogue

Seeking bilateral resolutions
also bicameral-interior solutions,

Capital-fed RightWing fundamentalism
of Either/Or reductive
secularized thinking,
even if devoid of resilient health-and-conserving-safety feelings,
is nearly impossible to let go of,

Without also LeftWing remembering
regenerative historical-multicultural his/herstory
of ego/ecosystemic binomial health/wealth restitutions,
restorations of win/win ego/eco-justice,
pre-historic,
pre-violent lose/lose non-verbal communications.

Restoring win/win Left/Right-bicameral wings
of win/win luminous
and dual/dark appositional reverse
face of the bilaterally light/dark
50/50 greyscale full/half
neuro-sensory belonging/bi-lateral longing moon
spiraling dynamic circles
of remembered recycling
repurposing
regenerative health/degenerative nonwealth
EarthTribe polypathic binomial consciousness

That win/lose capitalism
RightWing evangelically fundamentalist
All or Nothing ego-empowerment thinking,
remains cognitively and affectively dissonant
with win/win multiculturally-valued
democratic health
rooted in cooperatively-invested
polypathic
multi-paradigmatic
polynomial = not(not) polynomial
NonZero-Sum
binomial luminous
empowering-enlightening
polyculturing integrity’s
Paradise/Pleasure EarthTribe Potential
for healthiest resilient wealth.

From this perspective,
it feels luminously simple
to conservatively
and safely
grasp on

Restoring win/win dialectical justice
rather than further win/lose retributive injustice
excommunicating
anti-communing
with those we disagree with,
aptically and synaptically and integrally and appositionally,
at least until we cooperatively select
Earth’s salvific restitution,
sacred/secular co-redemption,
social-capital democratic co-passionate
multicultural Left/Right communion
co-governing
co-investing
empowering
enlightening systems.

The lose/lose opposite of win/win communication,
and experience of communion,
and historic memory
of healthy community economic development
is not aptic non-communication,
mere untrust,
win/lose mistrust;

Opposition to selecting authentic democratic healthy communication
is deliberate lose/lose anti-communication,
anti-healthy-wealth winLeft/winRight feedback systems,
reiterations,
rememories of ego/eco-systemic
thought/felt
multi-regenerational health/wealth

ReVolutions of ecopolitically developed,
conservatively redeveloped,
liberal love predeveloping
undeveloped
enveloped resonant polyphony,
poly-nonegotistic-theistic integrity’s not
not NonZero-Sum
polynomial Left/Right bicameral balancing
integrally empowering
enlightening potential

For selecting green eco-feminist win/win
multiculturally valued wisdom,
rather than continuing on
with Business As Usual
complex and chaotically dissonant confusion,
in this time of continuing divestment
from both Earth and Ego healthcare crisis,
win/lose capitalist-patriarchal hierarchical
straight white male leftbrain dominance,

v win/win multiculture-valuing
ecofeminist democratic circles,

when it is possible to co-redeem
both/and rightbrain multi-interdependent contextual intelligence,
by merely replacing the “v”
with a dipolar co-arising “/”;

where multiculturing leftsides of the waxing moonlight
are Yintegrity’s Paradise Enlightening Promise
and the more monoculturing rightside of waning luminosity
is YangCapital’s Pleasure EmPowering
BeLonging/BeComing

Empowering ReGenerative HealthCultures

Living
is our shared regenerative tradition
as Earthlings,

And dying
is our autonomously
separating
fading degenerative position
as former organic life systems

Anthropoid memory
of matriarchal history
proscribes unrealistic feelings
by prescribing realistic natural images
outside which remain only negatively describable
as unrealistic
untrue
unhealthy
yet felt as darkly spiritual

Perhaps it is not an accident of felt memory

followed by processive thoughts
of acquisition,
of healthy digestion,

But also negative feelings
of dissociation
pathology
aversion
diversion
perversion
verbally-associated reversion
untruthful win/lose or lose/lose evangelical revisionism,

Both positive and negative,
but not positive or negative,
together present pre-visionary awareness
of integral/disintegrating systems
of bilateral discerning consciousness,

EgoLeft/EcoHabitat right-hemisphere integrally balancing
with bias for regeneratively systemic health care
and against degeneratively unsystemic
monoculturally unsustainable

from multicultural
metaphysically ecological

back to eco-invested Earth,
where all polyculturally robust

If more egocentric

begets narcissism
begets colonizing nationalism,

What is transubstantiation

for mental/spiritual democratic Trust?

Through physically dynamic Passion
experienced as in and out connecting CoPassion,

to ecofeminist nature/spirited intuitive ComPassion

Why are healthy robust responses

Transitional Illuminations

“As I leave
this compound body
of flesh and blood
I will know it to be
a transitory illusion.”

Could transitory
embodied illusions
become mindbody gateways

Could hybrid mind/bodies,

spiritual/naturalized neurological feelings
of attachment
to perfect self/other
ego/eco-perpetuating
inside/outside climates of peace
restoring Earth Justice CoAttachment
also become timeless sensory experience
of Integrity’s Universal Promise?

Could climax of death’s Yang loss
also predict Yin’s deeply seeded memory
of passionate fulfillment
as inevitably healthy DNA’s redevelopment
peacefully, and yet relentlessly, seeding

DisConnecting Dogmas

Our humane-empowering species,
steeped in regenetic history
of human nature connecting
disconnecting
reconnecting
preconnecting,

Has an unfortunate tendency,
especially in Abrahamic historical traditions,
to imagine that our own religious tradition
is not only free of historical-cultural adaptation
but also the one supremely right-wing Way
orthodox Truth
healthy Life.

And, further, guilty of inhumane hubris,
of condemning those outside our dogmatic Fold,
our LeftBrain dominant individualistic EgoFrame,
to lack of redemptive grace,
to after-life Hell,
to lack of true communion
within today’s Earth
holonic
regenerative Spirit
of inclusive win/win recommunication,
empowerment
and enlightenment,
sacred awe
and secular wonder.

Due to this patriarchally influenced
left-brain privileged assumption,
HumanNature lives disconnected
in a win/lose racing economy,
determined by our orthodox religious
and other monoculturally privileged associations
and dues,
catechisms
and formative scriptural over-simplifications
and decontextualized
unhistoricized
dis-enculted
starkly isolated from human experience
studies,

When the practices
and beliefs
of those raised inside the Fold
become obviously heterodox,
our too often StraightWhiteMale authority voices
move toward excommunication,
shunning future cooperative
mutually creolizing empowerment,
remaining true-blue
dogmatically zealous
about our hidden
left-brain dominant
Earth-colonizing
anthropocentric mission,
messianism,
millennialism

And this left-brain overpowered indulgence
has repeated this disconnection,
this unredemptive severance,
this patriarchal apartheid preference
since prehistoric nature/spirit indigenous tribes,
long before Abrahamic written stories of Judaism,
Christian redevelopment,
and Islamic reform came into Earth’s empowering
and enlightening
constantly changing
evolving
revolving
spiraling regenerative connecting
communing
communicating traditions
nutritions
communions shared by all God’s living creatures.

One way of reading the economic
and political turns in the Gospels
is to see the story
of Pharisees
Saducees
and TaxCollectors
as Jewish authorities
who wanted to excommunicate EarthCreator’s Messiah
for stepping outside dogmatic institutional lines
of orthodoxy
and institutional
corporate
empire investment.

Rather than adapting,
co-acclimating to Jesus’s spiritual experience
of a Creator Abba
of regenerative
nurturing
co-passionate Love,
These WealthyElite saw their own unchanging Torah,
established commandments
educational and administrative regulations
dogmatic structures
and long histories of authoritative rabbinical interpretations
of Jewish Law,
as a final
closed religious system,
too privileged,
too Chosen,
supremely endowed with Yahweh’s divine teachings,
to be inconveniently challenged
by anyone with a deviant spiritual experience.

Academic awareness of positive integral deviance
is a modern empowering
enlightening
reconnecting hope with good faith.

What might we learn from this disconnecting
dogmatic
dark side of our GoodNews epistles?

Perhaps less arrogant
and internally preoccupied authorities
might appreciate our more multiculturally healthy milieu
within which all historically developed traditions,
cultures,
religions
have emerged
to describe connection integrity
and proscribe disconnection chaos.

Perhaps our positive deviant minds
and hearts
and spirits
and souls could be encouraged
to find a better religious tradition fit
to become more integrally accepted
and interdependently valued
as s/he/they continue their spiritual/natural journeys
into empowering multiculturally synergetic Truths
enlightening Ways
compassionate Lives,

Rather than the current hubris
of excommunicating
from the one and only True sacred Fold
in divine flowing rivers
of polyculturally communing
sacred EarthTime,

Revolving
evolving
spiraling regenerative climate and culture Changes,
positive diversity,
healthy empowering Missions
for enlightening wealthy spirit/nature vocations,

Reconnecting where each individual
has been,
accepted as now experienced,
and pointed in a new community support direction
toward that good faith
we hope to multiculturally become,
tomorrow’s peaceful practitioners
restoring Justice For All,
with no one left outside Earth’s
empowering local
enlightening global
Fold.
