A Healthier Patriotism

My own patriotic U.S. extended family,
historically,
and currently
remains StraightWhiteMale privileged
in our collective memories,
if not imaginations,
of spiritual communion
with all the more privileged saints
present,
past,
and future

But, we have also suffered
from rather too much faith in capitalism,
which, like democracy,
is frequently faulted as miserable,
but also lauded as better
than all the socialistic
communistic
devilistic
totalitarian
fascist
foreign
threatening
terrifying
anger-inducing alternatives.

Capitalism of our encultured
multigenerational minds
with left-hemisphere dominant brains
favoring natural secularized competitions
between saints and sinners
of diversely threatening monocultural privilege,
persuasions fundamentally supremacist
for democracy in theory
so long as not in perceived conflict
with self-serving capitalism in daily personal practice,
natural and spiritual,
secular and sacred,
ecological and theological.

We are egocentric
sometimes narcissistic
always bootstrap individualistic
evangelical redemption ecopoliticals
but focused on BadNews
of our need to invest in violent self-defense
against Marxist communism out there
in Hell

Not to be confused with commitment to GoodNews
of sacred divine communion
within our privileged StraightWhiteMale places
of apartheid worship
in awe and wonder
dogmatically committed to our StraightWhiteMale God

Made military-industrialized
in our best capitalistic,
not really quite so democratic paternalistic
image of left-hemisphere
StraightWhiteMale rightfully empowered
historical/cultural dominance.

So, there we have it,
this chaotic bilateral dissonance
between our powers of political democratic enlightenment
through whole open-systemic dialogue,
and our confusion about economic uncooperative self-empowerment
at the necessary (either/or thinking) cost of Other disempowerment,
gone sadly win/lose awry
through endless polarizing debate assumptions

That if someone wins,
then all others playing our eco-political game
must lose,
which sounds very much like
survival of the fittest
rightest
left-brain dominant species
OVER AGAINST
Earth’s whole open system
green/blue
ecological/theological success.

Like our dominant left-hemisphere academic theory
of secularized win/lose evolution
is more anthropocentrically capital-headed
and self-righteously defensively effective
than Earth’s sacred WINblue/WINgreen
ego/eco-politics
of polypathic political dialogue
empowering through GoldenRule democratic resilience,

And right hemisphere
polyphonic economic enlightenment
co-invested through Golden Octave Ratios
in interdependent multicultural dialogue,

Holonic nonzero sum,
polynomially left GroupTheory
and polyvagally bicameral right/left Win/Win GameExperience

My extended global
multicultural family
history and future
with more resonant
healthier cooperative democracy
embedded in Earth’s ecosystemic wealth,

Co-invested across multi-generations
of MotherEarth’s wise-dialogue
win/win eco-political
eco-feminist regenerators

Not of colonizing political
and anthropocentric economic privilege
but of democratically co-invested integrity
in sacred green/blue communion.

Integrity v Privilege

You, like all human embodied minds,
whether individual
or collective, tribal

Right hemisphere feelers,
sometimes left handed,
Left hemisphere thinkers,
dominant right handed,
have suffered wounds,

Self-esteem losses
for not being internally transparent
and externally vulnerable enough
for a holistic communion
of EgoLeft and EcoRight inter-hemispheric integrity
that comes only to a few,
usually with advanced mindbody healthy age,

Ego healthy interdependent bodies
compassionately expanding
throughout Right-hemisphere prominent
multicultural
resonant
interdependent
ecosystemic minds
attracted to other ecofeminist bodies,

Male yang strength of holistic
whole open EarthSystem Truth
with yintegral flowing Beauty

Left compassionate thoughts
supporting Right integral feelings,
sensory healing resonance
underlying sexually energized resilience

Restoring internal justice
overpowering historic wounds
of retributive violence
aggression
repression
suppression
oppression,
absence of win/win impression

Unjustly privileged StraightWhiteMale
LeftBrain dominant systems

Internally conditioned
because externally win/lose
strategically positioned

Capital infested atrocities
over minion invested democracy.

Grasping Distractions

Maybe it’s just me.
So, I’m asking,
as focused, yet open
as I could ever hope to be,

Do negative correlations
between inhaling
and exhaling
Earth’s sensory WorldView
resemble, for you,
too,
a reverse correlation,
dipolar co-arising
appositional contrast,
in-between grasping on
and distracting off?

I am not sure why
this question could be economically
or politically
or psychologically
or neurobiologically significant

In this time of great polarized
climate EarthHealth and Safety crisis,
and yet,
it persistently seems so
as I attempt,
in my EarthView solitude,
to exhale and detract from
left hemisphere verbal
monopolizing
demanding dominance

To inhale and grasp toward
more right hemisphere nonverbal
nonviolent communing
climate therapeutic
in-between re-association
re-syncing thought and feeling
re-communing secular and sacred
re-ligioning

Green
and blue
and red
ultra-violet reweaving
Earth’s climate health
grasping fresh inhalations
and distracting patriarchal stale capitalism’s
white male privileged
pompous hortatorical reiterations
of Fight Makes Godless Right

Grasping or distracting reactionary
nonresponsiveness
to our secular
and sacred longings
for EarthHealth
and DemocraticSafety
non-oppositional points of WorldView.

Democratic Poverty

I was listening to NPR yesterday
on my way to small green group ministries,
when I heard post-millennial Republicans
favor apartheid
while the contemporary urban-green Democrat
favors laziness.

I don’t know if this includes intellectual laziness,
lack of rigor,
and laziness about ecotherapeutic health,
but in either case,
this conflicts with my own experience,
regarding Democrats and lack of healthy motivation
but also of Republicans I actually know,
except perhaps my brother
and a Trump worshiping neighbor,
regarding apartheid as a fundamental religious constitutional right
to Christian evangelical colonizing supremacy
over all 3/5th former slaves
and other less fortunate criminals.

If Democrats are guilty of lazy love for restoring Earth’s
healthy subclimates,
both yin-side
and yang-outdoor voiced,
then what do we call Republican guilt
responsibility
lack of moral authority
to stop blowing each other
and trees
and Earth-habitat up,
both secular nature-systems
and sacred ZeroZone souls
of divine Matriarchal Grace.

When I arrived
to listen
and share non-verbal peaceful space
with my small green group alliance,
we sang and danced and spoke of connections
through active listening
rather than lazy lack of sufficient compassion
with suffering
and wealth of correlational enchantment
courageous coherence,
curious collusion,
collateral for healthy future prospects.

Then we each went home
in our own four directions
until we close our loops together
again next New Moon morning.
