RealTalk Parties

What if political parties
all over Earth
were invited together to sign a covenant
at a We The BiCameral People Party;

A covenant to never nominate or endorse or vote for a candidate for public office
without economic
and political
and environmental
and psychological
and socio-cooperative logical training
in non-violent communication skills,
verbal and non-verbal.

This experience,
publicly documented,
multicultural design certified,
quantified,
qualifies facilitators of RealTalk
inclusive and contagious public health
to con-celebrate virtuous GoldenRule circles
and green ecosystemic
climate wealthy public/private lives

RealWalk more robust than Win/Lose necessarily tolerant voices
unheard herded, not invited,
into what RealTalk could become
a more resilient deeper learning
as a Win/Win trusting health democracy.

What if Christian Law and Moral Order Schools
required first year retributive justice Win/Lose classes
as legal baseline Business As Win/Lose Usual,
And second year restorative peace and justice
outdoor green ecogame robust nutrition classes
in moral virtuous circles
Transactional Business As Healthy Win/Win Usual,

And third year liberal-green/conservational-red
left/right
ego/eco-justice
private/public health care resilient
mediation life skill tipping-pointers
toward Win/Win co-inviters,
as favorably contrasted
against Lose/Lose long-term UnDead
UnReal ClimateWalk of death skill commodifiers?

What if health-stretching tolerance
became, again, a re-creative tension
between growing Win/Win eco-resilience
and not so much toxic Win/Lose ego-dissonance?

Instead,
compassionate left/right resonance
liberal/conservational
+1/(-,-)0 polynomial
greenblue, aqua,ultra-violet,
sometimes plainly gorgeous/monocultural imperialist red,
left-wing/right-boot
ego-march/eco-systemic fancy flight
bilaterally conservative
of ego-marching/eco-dancing balance,

Functional RealWalk Yang strength/
Flowing RealUnTalk Yintegrity,
atomic/wave-linear,
precessive/recessive (Bucky Fuller)
patriarchal/matriarchal
fragmented complexity
with an impossible fractal-holonic-rainbow understory
densely learned polypathic.

What if restorative justice,
for GoldenRule WinWin covenant violators,
were RealWalk invitations
to a reverse-potlatch,
unkleptocratic green sanctuary event
for paying Lose/Lose offender taxes
to co-invest in less Win/Lose ZeroSum violence
against Win/Win emergent organic re-membering
resilient GoldenRule cooperatives
established in our original democratic

composed entirely of sacred covenanted co-relationships

To never ever choose Win/Lose candidates
hoping they won’t become another Lose/Lose nominee
for RealTalk RealWalk cooperative public office
or even private healthy-wealthy
intrapersonal left/right
Win/Win
un-sociopathic health practice.

Green Body of Christ

When I was a child
my evangelical family
went to People’s CoOperative Bible Church,
to rapturously pray and praise our privileged preachy partialness,
political and economic and social and environmental,
spiritual against physical apartheid
of superior, divinely-inspired, theology,

Yet, somehow rooted in mission-driven competitions
against the fullness of non-sectarian time
sufficient to bring inclusive nutrients,
liquid and capital-hoarded assets for future rainy
blizzard blustering
dominant days,
at least six per week
severed from Sabbath’s cooperatively wondrous Kingdom
at open-systemic nurturing hand,

Celebrated by declaring our victorious Communion
on God’s glorious not capital-driven work on Sunday
seated in humble chairs of classroom youth,
eventually wooden pews of adult authority
in our small
segregated
AllWhite People’s Sectarian Bible Church.

I recall not even one Sunday School lesson
about what the Holy Historical Body of Christ
might have to do with our potential
Green MultiCulturing Spirit of Healing Christianity,

Nothing about tensions between communion
and monocultural supremacist apartheid,

Nothing about walls between WinWin healthy sacred interdependence
and WinLose stringent secular autonomy of capitalism,

Nothing about Great NonTransitional Divides
between cooperative passions and competitive dispassions,
between Heavenly to-gatherness
and too much Earthly apartness,
between celebration of health
and holocaust of anthro-centric pathology.

Maybe I missed that non-violence teaching Sunday,
But I did not miss experiential theology lessons
of tensions between heterosexual patriarchal monocultural evangelism
and Heaven’s vast radically inclusive promise
of a polycultural
non-apartheid
eternal communioned outcome for Earth-dwellers,
especially for child-like peacemakers,
Holy Spirit inheritors,
regenerators,
co-messiahs within this one secular/sacred Body of Christ.

Active hope for such enchanting holistic bodies
and spirits of vulnerable and transparently loving Messianic Missions,
in the West,
and Bodhisattva PeaceWarriors,
in the East,
felt, even then, as a child,
like emotionally interdependent
enchanting intelligence.

Perhaps,
if we could all arrive in everyday Sabbath Heaven,
in absence of six-day capital over-invested apartheid,
we might discern warmer inviting Lights
are also Truths
and communioned Ways
to sing God’s/Gaia’s EarthBound greening praise

As when we first began
in Planet’s CoOperative Bible Church.

Why Ask Why?

Mommy,
why do we need Presidential Alerts
right now
before I’ve finished my ice-cream dessert?

Because he’s a scary guy
my son.

Why is he so scary?

Because he’s a bully against health
and patriotic loyalty to Earth’s future
multicultural life,
my well-nurtured daughter.

Why is he against health care?

He’s for his own wealth development.

Why is he for his own wealth care?

Because his mother never taught him
health care begins at home
and must have interdependent room
to spread out from there.

Why does health have to spread?

Because otherwise true wealth dies.

Why does wealth die?

Because Earth’s climate quickly turns
toward global degeneration.

Why is Earth going to hell?

Because we made some bad choices.

Who is We?
and why did We make bad choices?

Because We have bad habits
of settling for empty sovereignty
of a failing adult supremacy system.

Why is our system failing?

Because mature adults fail to ask enough questions
of ourselves,
and then with co-arising healthy others.

Celebrating Heroes

I want to respond
to the retired Marine
who watched Democratic Congressional Leaders
during the State of our crippled Union event,
disappointed at how their patriotism,
their loyalty to sacred sacrifices of soldiers
appears too tepid,
jaded,
ungrateful
as compared to more thunderous enthusiastic applause
and standing ovations of Republican Leaders.

I have noticed this too
both during various national bipartisan rhetorical events,
and also within my conscientious objector self,
And I wonder about my own hesitation
to celebrate military heroism,
as if this were an oxymoron,
like military peace intelligence.

For me,
such internal heart-warming applause
is chilled by my own half-empty embarrassment
that I have gone through my recent months and years
perhaps too full of willing tolerance
for moral assumptions too big to fail,
that we are OK to predatively place
other men and women,
regardless of culture or religion or nationality,
and their necessarily neglected children,
in harms toxically unnecessary way.

An heroic investment
far too expensive for developing healthy persons,
plants,
or planet.

This is not how we wisely invest
in sacred Earth’s climates
and healthing cultures.

My celebration of military heroes
remains perennially muted
by my unease about planting future threats
by paying springtime federal taxes
because I conscientiously object,
for spiritual experience
and religious belief reasons,
how large the mountainous percentage
invested in threat of death and dying
and paying ever-mounting interest
on past military industrialized deficit
overheating budgets.

Stolen from potential health
and well-being
of Earth’s future generations
spread throughout all Earth’s sacred residents
now terrified of upcoming ballistic climates.

I should have tried harder,
more conscientiously,
to invest in restoring ballasts of co-operative climates.

So, I intend no disrespect
for courage
and honor
and heroes
for those who have survived
violence and
fear and
anger and
greed and
political pretensions of Elitists
too old to fight themselves,
but just rightwinged enough
to invest in further armaments,
and thereby profit nicely.

I feel no disrespect
for those who have not survived
and will not survive,
much less thrive in pathological death-culture.

But nationalistic applause
and praying for God’s blessings on U.S. First and Last,
Right or Wrong,
feel consciousness unsettling
when I experience God’s applause
for love and peace
and not our hate and
fear and
anger and
violence against each other,
regardless of religion or
culture or
national origin
or gender
or color
or age,
born,
long gone,
or yet unborn.

I know God too omnipotent and omnipresent
to respect inhumane national apartheid boundaries.

Heroes
are those who have gone well past their patriotic duty
far beyond what anyone could honestly
and reasonably ask,
beyond what most of us might expect of ourselves,

Especially while those left behind
remain in free-markets
to profit off the tanks
and submarines
and rifles soldiers bravely carry,
bullets and bombs they aim,
often at the even more profitable investments
of these same 1% Elite,
regardless of International Conglomerate Status.

For those who are persuaded
what was asked
was itself a positive democracy protecting moral act,
standing ovations of buoyant applause
feel resoundly called for
from warmly celebrating hearts.

But, for those of us
who empathize with heroes both alive and dead
regardless of religion or culture or national origin,
who feel such violence reflects our own democracy protecting failures
to conscientiously love all sacred life sufficiently,
Such unmitigated happiness feels heart-wrenchingly wrong.

In face of such selfless investment
in violence and risk to healthy futures
for threatening death
and objectives of destruction,
we more likely bow our disinvested heads,
take a humbled knee,
silent in awe of such uncompelling bad-breathed ambiguity,

Yet not wanting to offend
against such sacred gifts
offered at an unacceptable cost
We never had the conscientious right to ask
another soul to pay.

I do not believe disrespect
is democratically intended
for lack of con-celebrating our violent history’s heroes;
but respectful listening grows more conscientiously compelling
for humility
of political and economic enablers,
co-investors like myself,
with guilt and shame about what others have paid
because we did not act sufficiently
for waging and investing peace,
Incarnating God’s love
for all Earth’s SacredTribes.

Great New and Old Years

Terrorism,
threat of terrorizing shelters
and habitats
and wombs,
seeds and trees,
mountains and valleys,
forests and deserts and oceans,
fear and anger conjuring and mongering and marketing
do not work long-term
because co-passions of love do work
more cooperatively and therapeutically.

Expressing
and impressing
our sacred healthcare vocations.

War does not impassioned sustain
as defensive basis for a society’s
just politics or economics
because peace does work
toward compassions of a culture.

Slavery and habitat-less-ness ultimately fail
because integrity’s empowerment
is passionately more vital.

Evil does not compassion health

Rather than teaching Earth’s military-industrializing LeftBrain dominant adolescent excesses,
we could LeftRight reach
for how and why and when
we have the justified self-righteousness
to blow each other up,
put each other desacralizing down.

These primary judgment and justice tasks
of democratic educational integrity,
parental maturity and lifeskills,
humane ego-ecological wisdom,
listen with Earth’s harmonious Native NatureSpirits,
teach WinLose adolescents,

about how and why and when
we best share this cooperative WinWin vocation
to grow integrity’s EarthSoul habitat co-passions,
egocentric health
AND ecopassionate wealth.

Degrees of Insanity

Is it more insane
to long to grow away from prisons
than to feel we still belong imprisoned?

Are we already prisoners,
lacking images for liberties
and co-arising responsibilities,
of a re-embodied god?

Are we divine authorities
to remake humanity
in our own god and goddess incarnations
free of body limiting imaginations?

Could we imagine
a YHWH who embodies Earth,
cosmologically evolving through spacetime,
revolving
spiraling dense and complex octaves
of color as resonant scales of sound,
fragrance within redundant seasons
of FatherSpace suns and black star-caves
passing through MotherTime valleys and waves?

Imagine we are stardust
coming to see ourselves
as we might bust
hard thrust
know lust
grow trust
blow truth
speak sooth,
unfortunately rust,
imaging ourselves
through redefining us
across healthing regenerations.

Are we less insane
longing our way from prison
belonging free
without cancerously capital-investing cells?

Punishment spells?

BigDaddy will swell
if we tell
I am
where we are;
We are
where we belong.

I can’t cower
if you think that’s wrong
I can only sing
how god wrote my song.

And I can only dance
where Allah could best prance strong.

And we can only breathe
what TaoTime finds notnot
too double-binding long.

I think I would be wrong
to imprison what longs
to virally throng.

Aren’t we more insane
stuck in retribution’s prison
when god cries out for peace
restoring Earth’s freedom
from FalsePatriotic lies,
paternalism fried,
too many species
and future generations
of sacred Time’s regeneration
already died.

If only we had tried
a little less LeftBrain secular crazy
and a lot less RightBrain sacred lazy

Is it less insane
to long to stay in prison
than to know we don’t belong
imprisoned
or enslaved
to insanity ourselves?

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.
