Listening for Healthier Scripts

I know,
in both head
and anemic heart,
other climate healers
right here and now,
compassion theaters
across Earth’s internationalized space
and throughout tribal time
breathe integrity’s potential
acting
thinking
feeling out and in there and here
somewhere close
and somewhere far
across Earth’s polluted oceans,

Yet my own everyday
immediate family relationships
neither speak nor hear
anything of this cooperative win/win integrity.

What am I?
What are we
listening to instead?

Internal climates of despair
about outside long-weathered detachment,
disintegration,
desecration,
degeneration

Win/Lose competitive commodification of life,
evolution of ego-expansion,
anthro-history hubris of detachment,
now rabidly fragmenting
into organic ecosystemic empires
of self-isolated would-be communicators
for and against our future experiential lose/lose outcomes,
or maybe win/lose, though highly unlikely,
in a ZeroSum,
winner takes all, capitalized Wealth economy,
or maybe win/win personal and public
economic and ecological
political and empowering prospects
of secular/sacred integrity scripts
scriptures

Regenerative transcriptions
still powering with
not not degenerative inscriptions

To Lose exterior nature, is to Lose interior spirit;
To Lose secular faith, is to Lose sacred hope;
To Lose integral health, is to Lose integrity wealth;

To Lose RightWing Win/Lose zealous zero-zone dominance,
is to Lose LeftWing ego-liberated,
not interdependently ecocentric,
climate health EarthTribe prominence.

To Win/Win
breathes in and out transubstantiation,
just this here and now,
appositional cooperative,
secular/sacred compassion.

Curious,
such lack of re-attaching courage
to give voice to feeling needy
for shared compassion
with each other,
within our families, extended and nuclear,
within ourselves, eco-big and ego-small,
as with Earth’s exterior healthier climate
prospects for future familial regenerators
of all species,
and parties,
and local communities,
and global universities
of ecological/theological inter-relationships.

Liberation’s Pride

I wonder if fully liberated consciousness
can only focus on integrity
becoming;

If partial consciousness
and unconsciousness of left with right awareness
is the default of dis-integrity,
of wandering through detachment
of unwanted apartheid
and mutual apathy
about integrity’s personal
national
global governing pride,
organic capacity to know
and appreciate
with active listening
and non-violently speaking
compassion.

In “Why Liberalism Failed”
Patrick Deneen
wonders aloud
if Business As Win/Lose Usual
is “the dying gasp
of an old white working class
and the lashing out
of debt-burdened youth”
disenfranchised from classic Enlightenment
and Reformation hope
in a global
multicultural climate
of integral healthy-wealth.

Deneen worries,
as does post-millennial emerging consciousness,
We are 20-20 witnesses
of climatic pre-revolutionary ecosystems,
and so, thereby,
victims of individual ego-systemic failure
due to lack of active consciousness,
active hope for liberating organic integrity.

Complex Reformation/Enlightenment,
EitherOr/BothAnd integrity
co-arising democracy’s win/win cooperative trust,
now at risk of becoming
a failed natural experiment
in multiculturing organically proud curiosity,
integral courage
to listen with compassionate attachment
before speaking foolishly
of competitive
detached
mendacious mechanisms.

Human experience is not rooted
in win/lose evolutionary machine models
of robotic mutual autonomy, detached,
Although these attributes
lie within the organic planting and harvesting skill set
of left-brain’s active integrity,
listening for how best to seed
and feast on co-empathic health awareness.

This morning
my Fetal Alcohol inspired
dis-integrity daughter
pulled out her tight white T-shirt,
a gift from her brother’s African-American nurse,
liberated,
proud.

In big black letters,
except for the hot pink cursive “ignoring”
her black on white shirt announces,
defiantly,
“I’D LISTEN TO YOU
BUT ignoring YOU
IS SO MUCH EASIER.”

Polarized self v other,
ego v eco,
left v right,
northern white patriarchal privilege
v southern ecofeminist integrity
of all courageous curiosities
except racist and sexist intolerance,
disintegrity,
does involve and invest heavily in “ignoring”

But, resulting detached and mechanistic models
of win/lose global lack of positive
liberating
progressive
organic experience,
are not easier to consciously perceive,
they’re just less extended family pride awareness,
too disassociated identity
reified from integral roots
of EarthMother’s multicultural compassion.

Integrity as revered and worshiped,
sung and danced
by both health Reformers
and would be wealth EnLighteners,

Left activists
and Right bicamerally active listeners
to proud liberated integral memories
and future climates of win/win images
mapping organically interdependent experience,
political and economic
Yang thought and Yin felt
co-passioning integrity.

Experiential Origins

When we lose access
to our most primal Other,
our EarthMother experience
dreamily following DNA’s developmental scripts,
original sacred scripture
of external habitats
becoming internal identities,

We lose not only our spiritual sense of security
but also our natural taste for liberty,
independence,
Freedom to go out from our well-conserved womb
and subsequent multiculturing habitats,
home-base to liberally spread seeds of compassion
as we have always known our purposed meaning,
natural-spirited DNA
unfolding and infolding identity.

When personal identity loses access
to natural sight
we can still hear internal spirit memories.

When we lose access
to natural taste
we can still feel ancient spirits in our starving stomachs,
in our insecure and unfree
and too secure and unliberated
and right enlightened integrating
creolizing
co-acclimating guts.

When we lose capacity
to touch organic nature
we can still feel internal integral spirits,
most without self-conscious voices,
perhaps a few with cries for liberty
and security
or death.

We can smell nature
to know which unseeable spirited winds
waft from which directions,
up and down
left and right
north and south
past and future generations
of light’s actively encultured hope, secure
and unfreedom in despair.

What we naturally lose
we organically incarnate DNA-integrity
gained so far
as individuals,
as species,
as multicultural becoming fragments
extending DNA-latticed families
tribes
living multi-generational laced-web systems,

Sometimes playing external nature with internal spirit Win to Win
for liberating compassion,
and sometimes playing sinister nature v spirit
secular outside v sacred inside detached win/lose
no longer actively securing and freeing enlightened restoration
of communal Truth and Beauty integrity;

DNA’s future health/wealth
timeless nurturing
original wombs and integral webs
co-revolving health-wealth thrival.

When we retain conscious attachment
to our primal Other,
and Her primal Others,
our EarthMother experience
originates sacred re-scriptures
speaking through nature
and listening through secure and freeing spirits
of cooperative DNA health development
ego/eco-identity.

Why Capitalism Failed

I’m reading a publication of Yale Press,
a “centrist” polemic against the LeftBrain’s libertarian excesses,
and against RightBrain’s sinister shadow
of totalitarian uniformity
playing nihilistic lose/lose
on a global interpersonal
public sector stage three
of nationalistic climate annihilation,

Where RightBrain’s win/win golden shadow
prefers indigenously universal integrity,
communion of ancient multicultural diversity,
playing democratically healthy win/win games
on an intrapersonal through global climate stage four
of 20-20 revolutionary peace
as also restoring LeftBrain cognitive bicameral consciousness.

Here I’m finding a Roman Catholic skewed analysis
of a “sexual revolution”
as sinister shadow
of Enlightenment attraction to individual freedoms
over social responsibility
and even public sector moral rules
of natural/spiritual law.

While I can see and feel historic accuracy here,
at the same time
this Liberalism
as described
is not at all the Liberal Religion I experience in UU,
or even the Liberal Education
I receive and give
in compassionate win/win dialogue
and everyday conversation.

Nor is this misnomer for Patriarchal Capitalism
what I experience with Friends
and in mature mainline Christian meetings
communions
sanctuaries from win/lose zero-sum
Business As Monoculturally Usual
way too theoretical and theo-unlogical and transcendent
to inform everyday natural communication,
much less ecologically healthy relationships.

Nor is libertine sexualized pathology
what I have experienced in the Liberal multicultural love
of compassionate Earth,
multiculturally interdependent EarthTribes,
and ecologically healthy inter-relationships
of natural/spiritual compassion.

The Liberal I am concerned about conserving,
and the Liberals I celebrate multicultural communion with,
are strongly
emotionally committed
co-invested in Earth
and natural law
and spiritual order
as an interdependently freeing web
connecting egalitarian dignity
of all
God’s/Goddesses’/Earth’s
living healthyLeft/wealthyRight
minded-hearted
polypathic
polyphonic
polynomials not-not ZeroSum
becoming bicamerally ego/eco
yang/yin
nature/spirit
secular/sacred liberated lovers
of integrally conservational co-passions.

This Liberal I would myself, with others, conserve
for healthy purpose,
The Liberals I conservatively know
in my own reserved
yet internally changing
creolizing
transubstantiating
co-acclimating
co-passioning way,
would no more let go of our interdependent web
of Earth’s truthful
trusting
and beautiful nature/spirit nondual interface
of Enlightenment,
than grab hold too conservatively
too tightly to individual rights to speak and do
that would infringe on Others’ rights
to freely listen to transparent truths
and behave with openness to change
for growing healthier and wealthier and wiser
vulnerably interdependent Beauty Paradise.

Which, if I recall,
takes us back,
full circle,
to the internally felt Light
that originally
and democratic constitutionally
sparks individual RightBrain Enlightenment Eras,
interdependent nutritional augmentation of organic health-webs,
in response to
LeftBrain Industrial-Weaponed Violent Revolutions,
autonomous capitalism’s fragmentation
born of white male privileged apartheid.

What is midway central
is also narrow-way double-bound
egalitarian Left nature
co-arising
interdependent Right holonic spirit.

Now that’s in the book Iain McGilchrist wrote
and Yale Press also published.

Fundamentalism v Evangelical

I believe
I can be an evangelical
multiculturally intelligent Christian
if I am not an anti-historical literalist,
a fundamentally white patriarchal dogmatist,
using holy scripture to divide and conquer
what divine creation has compassioned to regather.

I also know beyond death’s shadow
and within life’s promise
A fundamentally patriarchal believer
in God’s might makes Earth right
cannot be a good news gospel driven
spiritually maturing
evangelical Christian believer
and doer
and follower
of polypathic cosmic-conscious Christ
timelessly embodied.

What is healthy evangelical loving witness
is antithetical to patriarchal fundamentalist dogmatism.

Evangelical Christians follow Christ’s win/win multiculturing heart path
of integrity.
Fundamentalists, fake-Christian and fake-Islamic
and fake empowerers of all faiths
and all natural/spiritual systems,
lead win/lose monoculturing mind pathology
of mendacity.

To learn the difference
between fundamentalism and evangelical vocation
is to know us by our communal natural love
and our divisive anti-spiritual judgments
against those who shrink
down into fundamentally shriveled
win/lose zero-sum narcissists.

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.

Between Heaven and Hell

To deliberately
mindfully
with full integrity,
intentionally choose to live
between Heaven and Hell
may be the most sacred gift of all returns.

This Messianic gift
is also the Bodhisattva in-between
back and forth
narrow way gift of discerning
win/win relationship potential
within win/lose past communications,

Sacred opportunity
without secular risk
within, and emerging from,
business as left-brain dominant usual,

Ours to offer each other
through empowering courage–political,
positively invested curiosity currency

[micro through macro economic,
ego through eco logical
zero-prime relational],

transparently uniting-inviting,
so not negatively judging and violating and threatening,

universally vulnerable,
so profoundly multicultural compassion.

To live between Heaven and Hell
is a messianic choice
not only for everyday conversion
into one sacred holonic Body,
but even more intimately
a choice within every moment.

Choices are regeneratively supported
by healthy verbal and non-verbal environments,
sanctuaried sacraments,
sacred ritual experiments
with people,
plants,
planet,
all EarthTribe living species
and organically interdependent ecosystems
inspiring
and inspired by Paradise past
recreating Heaven’s fulfilling future.

Life is this cross
over and back
and forth,
up and down,
in and out,
like breathing in Heaven and Hell
and breathing out Hell or Heaven
in each conscious thought
through mindful choices,
hopeful curiosities,
vulnerable courage,
transparent positive/negative passions

For and against
outward and inward
upward and downward,
between enspiriting inspiring Heaven
and denatured expiring Hell.
