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.

Sins of Our Fathers

In hindsight
I suspect my dad silently hoped,
secretly conceived,
vicariously needed his dream
I would become a multi-talented musician.

He said, No.
behind my mother’s gentle apron
strings of soft-voiced disappointment,
but also hidden within unspoken fear
of Catholic influence
when I was invited to join
The Vienna Boy’s Choir.

I was too young.
I would be missed–the farm was an absorbing enterprise.
I wasn’t ready.
They weren’t ready, yet,
to let go.

But, then offers of guitar
and piano
and trombone lessons,
and choir
and worship music leader
soon followed,
as if from straight white watered
washed
and lied patriots
blessed by prize-giving patriarchs
who listened barely long enough
to hear I was marketably good
as an entertainer,
a professional,
not just another deep soul singer
or deeply soiled male dancer.

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.

Mother-Son Happy Talk

I said to my son,
He said back to me,
To be honest with us,
I’m worried

We want to be happy
while bypassing disciplines of left-brain healthy
is not too right-brain cooperatively sappy.

But, after my ancient lifetime of trying
directly for prosperous happy
that may or may not lead to left-brain healthy,
that may or may not lead to right-brain wealthy,

I hope you can benefit
from what we redundantly say,
more than what I’ve actually done
in front of you
and behind your back,
confronted you,
denied,
and what I’ve failed to take left-with-right back.

We want to be happy
and to win wealthy left-brain ego-fame
however flashingly synaptic
even at the price of ignoring natural/spiritual resilient healthy
is not all that win/win polyanna maniacally sappy
nor lose/lose despairingly immoral crappy

So I have done
and we long to be done
with such lose-happy and lose-wealthy self-prophetic life confusion
profusion
contusion,

Of unhappy cognitive left
and disaffected unwealthy right
dissonance

provokes short-term wounded choices for mere satiation
because long-term resiliently healthy happiness
feels too right-brain prominent sappiness
suffering left-brain crappiness

Both un-together remaining mutually blind
to integrity of global win/win GoldenRule manners,
uncrappy and unsappy,
too remotely not experienced on our shared big mainframe
but maybe flimmery-glimmers of light emerge
in more everyday lighter healthy,
wealthy,
and wise here/now
space/timeless moments.

To be honest with you,
I’m worried
we want to know abundant happiness
without accepting and committing to our win/win integrity
as ego/eco-systemic
left/right cooperatively integral
Red/BlueGreen
yang-fire/yin-water
holistic nonsectarian
non-partisan
non-violently communicating health vulcanizers,
optimizers,
re-creators,
transubstantiators,
creolizers,

With happy inter-hemispheric ego/eco-logicality
speaking dipolar bi-loyally
in cooperatively resilient
health/wealth solidarity

Which I think everyone would regeneratively agree
is not too sappy
nor too degeneratively crappy
to remain responsibly happy
despite all our co-arising snappy facts
without contextual slappy feelings.

Birthing,

There Ought to be a Golden Rule

There ought to be a law

If CEOs ignore firestorm conflagrations
expanding in strength
and endurance
And ignore wet windstorms
wiping out resident populations,
humane and Republican
and otherwise,

If CEOs meanwhile invest all their twitter toilet time
and anti-green revolutionary rallies
expanding hate conflagrations
of disinformation
about their patriotic healthy opposition,
and not one unmediated word,
much less “praying with feet” investment
in ecological and theological economic therapy,
multicultural healing sins of Great White Fathers,

Then we get to choose
a healthier,
more sane,
less treasonous
CEO.

And he gets to choose
a healthier,
more sane,
less fractured
therapeutic habitat.

HummingBirds and SpiderWebs

Where might we see

Where might we hear

Where might we hear

Dystopic Opiates

Paraphrasing Dickens
speaking of Great Expectations
through Pip’s distraining voice,
Our worst religious weaknesses
and political meannesses
and self and other deprivations
are usually committed
for the sake of avoiding elitist people
whom we most actively distrust.

On the other hand,
trust invites vulnerability
as distraining poverty embraces wealth,
honesty,
integrity,
expanding democracy
and cooperative co-investment.

Oppressive religious and cultural repressions and suppressions
are opiates of multiculturing people
When monoculturing elitists
offer religious opiate addictions to domesticating ritual
thereby over-ruling democratic spiritual experience
of daily natural and cooperative liturgies.

Polycultural non-elites,
like young organic gardeners of polyphonics
and ecofeminist transgendering designers,
thrive best within an alliance
of the gentle and broken,
vulnerable and open
to new cooperative intimacies,
gentrifying neighborhoods and families
and hearts
designed by rural-memory values
for nutrition that also nurtures,
health that also wealths,
climates embracing edible and richly colored landscapes,
mindshapes
of and for regenerating
future generations
of and for polycultural cooperative EliteNetworks,
neither opiated
nor nervously nirvanaed nellies
nor disappointed
that WinLose investment
didn’t turn out
as WinWin actively hoped for
through EcoPolitical Constitutions
reborn in and through each matriarchal ego/eco-doublebound
organic governing womb,
probably not so Dystopically Opiated,
at least in our moments of original cooperative conception.

Or, we could end less simply Dickens,
with Great Expectations for avoiding:
Our worst religious weaknesses
and political meannesses
and self and other deprivations,
usually committed
for the sake of avoiding elitist people
(and other divine personages,
distraining gods and goddesses)
whom we most actively,
LeftBrain dominantly,
distrust.

The L Word

The L word,
like the N word,
labels no one with healthy homeostatic balance within society,;
no conservative fellow-conservationist of culture
that we would want to be
and creolizingly become.

The L word
is a political caricature,
a despotic stereotype,
of what is too often economically proven
as also a faithless hypocrisy.

An authentic political person
favoring liberating inclusion
within our systemic power structures
cannot also be an economic autonomous ownership conservative.

A politically bilateral cooperative management model,
where responsibility goes up as authority comes down,
is ultimately supported through cooperative ownership
as public health
stewardship for optimizing multicultural wealth.

To own the L word
is to cooperatively own Earth,
including our nondual co-arising
nature-spirit,
descriptive-prescriptive,
logos-mythos,
yang-yin,
left-right,
deductive-inductive,
double-binding ecopolitics.

Old School Libertarians
had faith in conserving political freedoms for co-empowerment.
PostMillennials would also liberate
our faith that growing economic cooperative ownership,
and self-with-other governance,
is a normative therapeutic prescription
but also an ecological description
of how we organically have derived
optimal regenerative
multiculturally positive outcomes
throughout both history and herstory,
both economically co-owned
and conservationally co-operatively managed.

Who cooperatively owns and manages
your not primarily for elitist profit-growing enterprises,
plans,
designs,
projects,
corporations,
incarnations?
Is it your celestial Board of Directors
and your monopolistic CEO?
Or do you cooperate your days and nights through family-owned busyness and playfulness,
through your local economic and political cooperative networks
of co-owned industry and recreation,
transportation and communication,
communing self/other transport,
your cooperative interdependent ecosystemic States,
your Earth interdependent international economies?

These are each and all for ego/eco-therapeutic climate-liberating health
accruing cooperatively emergent slow-growth wealth
through WinWin regenerative games and choice-making
and self-with-other ownership of our cooperative game ourselves.

This cooperative matriarchal/patriarchal Organic Garden
is already multicultural Shabbat here,
and still not quite cooperative therapeutic economic ownership
of and for regenerative self/other-gratitude governance;
not just anti-climatically yet.

Christian v NotChosen

Life does not necessarily mature into timeless love,
just as yeast is not the entire evolutionary journey for bread,
and the Way may be part of, but not the entirety of,
the Beloved Community.

It is so interesting, for a nondualist at least,
that a profoundly radical Jewish teacher
would say He is the yeast
while We are the embodied bread;
He is the Way,
yet We are the Kingdoms and QueenEarth Shabbats at hand.

Then the men turn it around,
get it all dualistically, cause-effect backwards,
while the women probably knew this Messianic mentor
as bootstrapping our evolutionary fulfilling birthing process
of incoming and oncoming and ongoing cooperative co-messianism.

The patriarchs,
with theo-means not-ecological words in hand,
were too invested in their post-revolutionary need to distance themselves
from the then-powerful elitist threat of Judaic cultural power,
at least by comparison with their post-revolutionary
dualist-fundamentalist Either/Or departure
into before-Christ/after-Christ messianism-already-fulfilled
by the One
who taught himself as the intentional mentoring leaven,
and not the entire cooperative organic co-salvific loaf;
as the only Way He could speak of and for,
but not our entire EarthTribe Garden
of cooperative ecotherapeutic
co-redemptive messianism at hand.

Too bad the wives and mothers,
the nondualist gatherers and not so much the dualist hunters,
didn’t have the education,
or perhaps even the verbal communication skills,
to write down their creolizing nondualist fulfillment narratives
of cooperative nurture,
to recall and cast a nondualist Messiah
who did not come to kill YHWH’s Chosen People,
or His own culture,
the regenerative history flowing through his humane-divining
mindbody,
but to leaven with these Elders,
those who had no ecopolitical Win/Lose self-centered elitist hypocrisies
like the Pharisees and Sadduccees,
those who were not over-invested in the competitive change of Caesar’s coin
from useful for cooperative consuming health
into iconic-only value for producing disembodied hoards of wealth,
and to leaven within us
as one continuously multiculturing
multigenerational
nondualistic-BothJewish/AndChristian
organic creolizing mindbody
of regenerative intention
and vast ecopolitically radical compassion;
like yeast evolving divinely humane bread.
