Still Processing: Please Don’t Wait

Does sacred MotherEarth
too often want to stop
to process Her nuanced feelings?

Does our desecrating Dad
too seldom demand we stop
to consider grace
and win/win gratitude
for creation
as it has systematically developed
to this current post-millennial date?

Revisiting loyalty to Earth’s global systems
of nutritional economics
and cooperative psychological
bicameral enlightenment
of healthy democracy
bipartisan empowerment

Solidarity with RightBrain integrity
restoring EarthJustice
nonviolent ecofeminist
co-invested communication

Deep listening
to identify EarthPatriotic feelings
of safety,
provision,
protection

And more matriotic co-passionate needs
and wants,
felt voices
and thought choices
for healing
from PatriarchalCapitalism
chronic LeftBrain overstressed disorder

Haunted by night mares
ing about feckless EarthMothers
stalled to win/lose process competitions
in autonomous lack
of polycultural communing

Win health to win safe wealth
bicamerally reprocessing
nondualistic thoughts with interdependent feelings.

Cannabis Culture

Already an apology is due,
which is only better
than one already overdue,

Yes, I know cannabis
is a place of multiple
and diversely celebrated
subcultures,

And, yes, I realize chaos
and complexity may be civilly sipped
and thirstily gulped
from diverse alcohol
subcultures,
pedigrees,
castes of enumerated strength,
weakness,
risk,
opportunity.

Even so,
although it may feel peculiar
to follow this bi-cultural thought experiment

Let us explore
what we might heuristically mean
by a Cannabis Culture (CC)
versus Alcohol Culture (AC),
as we might pursue a feminist
versus patriarchal history.

I have two CC sons
in their AfricanAmerican 20s,
both politically and economically at high risk
of lifetime failure to thrive.

To mental light
and physical power survive,
younger son is dominated by dark fear;
older sun by redhot anger
burning against an ecopolitically punishing system

With win/lose
hostile
white privileged
lack of good and healthy
RightBrain
interdependent networking manners

Oblivious to CC dense
possibilities
for healthy
cooperative
multi-therapeutic intent;

Stuck in blood poisoning
AC self-traumatizing medication
worthy of a patriarchal
capitalist
straight
white supremacist wounded child
traumatized by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Hostile
oppositional
defiant
aggressive
curiously threatened by CC organic-fed
and clear watered
bicameral awareness
of polypathic climate anxiety

About outside degenerating subclimates,
faltering public, global healthcare systems
and concomitant inside struggling
polycultural CC values
for multiculturing ego-health
encountering empathic eco-wealth.

It interests CC biased me,
and causes grave AC concern,
that RightBrain prominent
younger son’s disenfranchising fear
wishes older sun’s angry hot potential allies
were more LeftBrain curious
about therapeutic values
of nonviolent communication.

Angry-CC suns are often under-
and unemployed, in part,
because their trauma medication
is a hiring barrier
to securing a secular job,
and to attracting a sacred vocation,
while their AC former friends
and learning peers,
more white and patriarchally privileged
pass with patriotic fervor
their blood
and uncriminalized background tests.

Angry-CC solar flaring suns
demand their Fear-CC brothers
and timid sisters
aggressively demonstrate empowering eco-political courage
to erupt CC hegemony.

Yet all the CCs and ACs above
behave as if we suffer less
because of our employment marginalizing,
and potentially criminalizing, choices

And feel as if we win more
when we suns and windblown daughters
recognize and appreciate each AC/CC
bicamerolling Other

When we organize deep CC nonviolent listening circles,
open to our patriarchal
capitalist
straight
white AC
LeftBrain degenerative nemesis.

Alcohol-natured and Old Cannabis-spirited
indigenous nature/spirit wisdom
among bicameral polyculturalists
could synergetically co-mediate global thinking
and feeling

Bilaterally rebalancing internal
external co-passion communions

Globally conscious
Ego/EcoSystemic CC
politically resonates with
and for
and of public health solidarity systems
reconnecting all bicamerally co-binary
eco-wealthy EarthTribes.

Employment Trauma

My protagonist today,
a Gay Black Religious Mature Male,
not quite ready for silver-grey Obama temples

Is off this morning
to a new full-time job,
8 to 5,
Monday through Friday.

He has been out of his calming,
regular custodial collared routine,
for over two years,

And has long been anticipating just this kind
of post-traumatic economic morning.

Up with the sun,
shower,
shave,
dressing just showman right–
not shaman flashy
but not beatdown polyester–
lunch in his red and white pristine cooler
generously filled with fresh
wholesome food

He is not feeling
like he will be able
to eat.

His stomach is Post Traumatic Employment Stress
churning.

He looks into his refrigerator
while telling me
he is in knots
and at least half a mind wishing to not show up,

To tell them he doesn’t think right.
Doesn’t feel he can get through his uncontrolled fear
and self-loathing for not manning up
while They background check
his suffering character references.
He doesn’t think or feel he can survive this day
even though he has no doubt he can do this job
better without Them.

He wants to give up,
walk away if he can’t freeze
in his more health and safety habitat place.

I am stunned into silence.
This is hard to hear,
to link up with how excited he was
to apply
and to get a call
from his would-be “nice guy” supervisor,
after meeting suspicious him.
He told me how surprised he was
to feel like this Straight White Male
was one of the good,
reasonable,
non-toxic guys.

Eventually,
after our anxious potential hero heads out
with heavy feet
and knotted stomach,
I recall how he might have felt
when he left his last full-time employment day,
dismissed
without notice.

His employment record reads “tardiness.”
But, off his common knowledge record
is a victim of systemic racism,
a supervisor’s personal superiority prejudice,
global heterosexist homophobia.

Victimized by StraightWhiteMales
for being who he is,
and not getting support from brown-skinned guys
he thought were potential allies
because he has no proper heterosexual credentials.

Talk therapy may be widely used
to prepare his LeftBrain to reconstruct
past traumatic experiences.
The therapeutic goal,
to resolve through better contextual understanding
in a LeftBrain verbal
rational way.

This can be helpful, I suppose,
but PostTrauma disordered victims
need PreAbundant nurturing anticipations
fading frozen fears
of further victimization,
economic and/or political trauma
due to personal identity rejections
that have historically been cause for criminalization,
colonization,
enslavement,
sending out evangelical missionaries,
in nationalistic Patriarchal/Capitalist
drunken salvific supremacist history.

Dissociative experience of eco-political trauma
is as deep margins felt
in our RightHemispheres
interdependent serotonin/dopamine fading flight
outside our BusinessAsCompetitionUsual,
patriarchal-capitalist,
Either in
Or out,
deductive verbal labeling LeftHemispheres

Capable of calmly,
curiously,
courageously distinguishing thought-out purposes
for our win/lose past behaviors
within an overwhelming evolutionary
Fight Makes Patriarchal/Capitalist Right
competitive manly worldviews
justifying punishing severances.

Trauma,
to ecological
and psychological
and economic
and political relationships,
deeply retains fear and/or anger
neuro-sensory systemic
terrifying memories

Post-Loser re-victimized
by re-experiencing active distrust,
dissociation
as the opposite of Attachment’s sacred experiential promise
of cooperative peace,
Win/Win behavioral and verbal communing safety,
personal health prosperity
on a planet growing in eco-wealth anticipating provisions.

In my protagonist’s developmental
special employment case,
I also hear theological trauma–
deeply felt shame
and blame,
and White-righteous Straight Capitalist/Patriarchal
judgment.

Such deep trauma responds most resonantly
to having a positive gain experience today,
this morning,
while filling out pre-employment paperwork,
feeling those he meets are divinely delighted
and delightful.
Then he may feel already a bit relieved.

He may, thereby, rediscover sufficient environmental resonance
therapeutic courage
to continue showing up with a positive,
let’s get it cooperatively done,
nonviolent gratitude attitude

To open sufficient hope
for potential healthy and safe team players,
we all need respect
for human and civilizing rights,
but we are transformed
by downright resiliently appreciative
multiculturally experienced values.

Each day, at work and play,
can invite affirmation
for polypathic transparency

The gospel’s “Poor in Spirit”
are our vulnerable person-ego identities,
expecting merely reasonable
eco-therapeutic compassion
and actively hoping
for polyculturally intelligent communication.

Best therapeutic practice
for anger
fear
hate
greed
exploitation
enslavement
criminalization
colonization
predation experiences
ruminating traumatic employment narratives
are new compassionate work and play environments
of cooperative courage
to get through our shared sacred vocations
in this another EarthBeauty
and SacredTruth
re-education day.

All Mattering Employment’s vocationally Great Again
meaning is found in our economically felt
politically experienced solidarity,
our cooperative win/win generosity,
our co-investment
in pro-active peace
and co-passion;

Not our traumatic enslavement,
repressive employment,
and past discrimination
by retributive Patriarchal/Capitalist
straight white gatekeepers
who have also had traumatic losses.

Perhaps our collective traumatic experiences
are more systemically acute
for those with more difficult personal
and political
and economic births
into a Straight White Patriarchal/Capitalist religion
where one’s own dark and queer embodied experience
may be unjust
unhealthy cause
for a traumatic can’t win Loser
Life is a slow
unfair death sentence

Uttered by LeftBrain dominant
Patriarchal/Capitalist
anti-peace communications.

Green Cultures

Inside my elegantly intuitive,
but SupremelyWhite Male neglected,
and cooperatively We-managed RightHemisphere,

Grows a nutritious nuancing

EnRiching Sacred KinShips

Be kind to others
As you would have even your ecopolitical enemies
and win/lose ZeroSum competitors
be kind,
feel kinship,

listen cooperatively,
take turns co-investing in win/win solidarity
with ecological empowering

Be not unkind to

As you would not have even your Lose/Lose

Is not quite the same
as either proving

begets necessarily ecological kind co-relationships

Not bipolarizing out of control
not judging

criminalizing

neuro-sensory
co-passionate prime non-zero kind attachment

Zone of internal

Who really just don’t have time

Choosing Happiness

Tonight I heard a terminally cancered
yet not cancelled
singer songwriter say
“I can’t wait for life to not be hard
before choosing to be happy.”

She spoke well from her own experience
and I remain moved,
but also curiously confused
about physical v mental
hardness.

For someone with chronic depression
or suffering from loneliness,
chronic climate anxiety,
lack of nonviolent
and actively compassionate communication,
pathological attachments,
monocultural self-depreciation,
transparent and vulnerable dissociation,

For someone profoundly missing
resonant and resilient
spiritual and natural healthy wealth,
mental and physical,
sacred and secular,

Our primary suffering
includes not having ego-empowering
and cooperatively enlightened choices
to be happy,
nor healthy.

Although, perhaps more individual choice
can be slow-grown
to positively engage EarthMother’s outside nurture
with robust healthy integrity,
intent,
cooperative investment practice,
courage,
active curiosity and hope,

Lurking,
hanging out,
furtively searching around dark mystic
re-connecting sacred corners
for co-empathic compassion,
light,
power,
sufficient win/win energy
not feeling outside alone
as also inside lonely,

Not feeling heterosexual
as also homophobic,
any more

Or less than I can
and will power
to enlighten health wealthiest opportunities

Here as Now engagement
is not over There and Then war
against PatriarchalCapitalist PC Them v Healthy Us

Left spatial seen
and heard consecutive Right deductions,
temporal happiness reductions,
felt and touched cumulative inductions
of each ego LeftBrain dominant voice
is not hopelessly PC alone
bereft of ecosystemic RightMind
felt Here/Now happy
healthy EarthMother’s solidarity choice.

To choose existential EarthHappiness,
sacred celebrating sacramental joy,
divine con-celebration,
is to choose to extend
and embrace polyculturing health

InsideSpace as Outside PC Time,
Ego as part of Earth’s healthy resonating
WholySpirit inspiring
to choose optimizing integral AnthroWealth
of ego/eco-resilient compassion

PhysicalHere/MentalNow
throughout Earth’s integral
Space/Time well-being,
with flashes of healing happiness
leisurely breaking through
like dawn seducing sunlight.

UnWeaponed Education Tools

Sacred health
is also secular green wealth
integrity
is a Taoist
non-zeroist yang/yintegral
inclusive tool for progressive social ecology

Collaboratively informed with co-arising
co-gravitating
co-empathic
co-passionate
multiculturing processes
of cooperative interreligious
inter-reconnecting
intersectionally recommunicating theology.

This bicameral balancing re-education project
for developing healthy organic communication
reweaves RightSide cultural wealth prominence
with LeftSide climate health dominance
for and of all interdependent
inter-communing embodied minds

Deep and wide listening and seeing,
feeling and touching,
smelling and tasting
sensory-neural polypathic systems

Are our empathic metacommunication ego systems
re-connecting
re-ligioning internal nutritional economic exchanges
with external communication sensory networks
experienced across a health/wealth variable range
from projecting Lose/Lose
violent outcomes
through protecting Win/Win
nonviolent incomes.

Nutrition’s neuro-sensory integrity messages
respond to ecologically resilient health relationships
and EarthJustice energy democratization,

Win/Win nonzero-zone cooperative games
for repurposing inclusive polycultural values

Progressively communicating
nonviolent green communions
transubstantiating
theologically resonant wealth
developing
tools that cannot become

against fluid wealthing

Curious UnChosen Gifts

To my StraightWhiteMale
right-wing
left-brain
monoculturally dominating brothers,
and your antifeminist glamorous
amorous womanly allies,

You have not yet heard me,
if you only hear my resistance,
sharing my non-culpable experience
with non-choice of gender attraction
and gender identity.

It’s not only that my queer gender identity
is not my fault,
because not my choice;
but also my gender identity
and sensory-neural attachments, as also true of yours,
are my sacred gift.

CoArising identity and CoGravitating attraction ,
like awareness and consciousness,
are not just heavy social responsibilities,
but also enlightened
and empowering opportunities.

We’re not legitimately known by who
or what
we hate and hurt;
But we can be redeemed by who
and what
we love and heal.

We may have no more choice
about who
and what
and when
and where
and why
and how we love,
than choice to respond with awe and wonder,
or boredom and disdain,
to Earth’s natural enspiriting Beauty

Of dawn
and dusk,
spring
and autumn,
ocean
and mountain
restorative reconnections

Which feel both Healthy
and True,
of the deepest
and highest
and yet safest resilient
and resonantly robust multicolored wealth
of nonchoiced
unfaulted gifting grace.
