Great Power Transition

We come,
at a trail’s trial turning,
to an impermeable ego-flaming wall.

All remaining between us
and history
since bilateral beginnings of our ZeroWalled Time
is this Yang barrier
double-binding before to after identity

Between humane solidarity
and Earth’s solid eco-habitat;
between us and living Earth joy,
swaying wildness,
sunlight on oceans,
early spring songs,
fogged-in mornings of gloom
doom
dark walled tomb…

Will we co-arise
Earth’s sacred ego-dominance together now
or unsolidly apart,
not long later?

Will we let yang with yin
left with right
dipolar consume
whatever resonant body identity
we have twisted
to transpire our seasonally climatic lives?

Sending us on and out each morning
through trembling memory of yang barriers,
a WiseElder power radiance,
a changed yang-purging yin-squared diamond
transubstantiating event
dialectically positronic
flickering interdependence
re-becoming EarthTribal breath re-inspired
expiring healthy atmosphere remediation,

Another moody not yet waiting
and not yet gone longing
ZeroWall,

Boson of Earth’s potential spacetime,
universal integrity,
holonically uniting spirit.

 

Inspired by Anita Barrows, “Questo Muro”

Ego Ecstasy

I wonder
in powerful awe

If I can see
as well as hear
a timeless difference
between ill-timed ego-annihilation
and health-trained ego-fragmentation
into awed synergetic complex wonder,
chaotic eco-ecstasy.

If I can hear
as well as see
full-timed integrity
so dense
robust
resilient
I am optimally fulfilled
by cooperatively silent celebrity.

Next To Godliness

What would you say,
if yours to freely choose,
lies closest to godliness:
Cleanliness/purity,
Integrity,
Compassion,
Resilient health,
Wise wealth?

Why?

Does your answer change
if this question changes to:
What lies closest to Gaian Earth Goddessness
for you?

If your nearby synonym changes, why?
If not, why not?

These questions came up
when I was looking for a dissertation topic
for InterReligious Dialogue and InterNational Diplomacy.

My Big Question statement began:

The technology and philosophy of dialogue,
diplomacy,
conflict resolution,
restorative justice,
peace-making,
non-violence,
WinWin solutions,
derive from philosophy,
theology,
natural and social sciences,
and perhaps even abstract psychotherapeutic geometrics.

Rather than asking the more classical academic questions
of how are public health empowerment resources
better and worse than each other,
how do they best practices differ?
Perhaps it is more fruitful to diversely
and interdependently
compare these health/pathology paradigms
to search for their most resilient therapeutic WinWin communion
and wealthy holonic promise.

And so I began inviting the widest,
most diversely multicultural, dialogue
about what are our highest health and therapeutic priorities
for cooperative people
who understand godliness and/or Gaian-ness
as at least sufficient power
for synergetic integrity
to generate light
out of nondual darkness.

Which, on living Earth,
has produced some astounding evolution of compassionate grace history,
polycultures,
polyphonics,
polynomial WinWin communication,
polypathic ways
and ego/eco-balancing
and cooperatively centering means
to godliness
and/or Gaian-nest integral hypotheses.

Liberal Love’s Failure

One answer to Patrick Deneen’s question,
Why Liberalism Failed,
not necessarily opposed to Deneen’s own
more LeftBrain position,
yet considerably shorter,
is:

Profoundly democratic liberalism,
like Christianity,
has failed because it has not been multiculturally tried,
to paraphrase anti-colonialism
and non-violent communicating
Mahatma Gandhi.

Strangely,
this may also be a kind of corollary
to respond to a different title,
How the West was Won,
which would thereby postulate
How the West was Lost
by Win/Lose capitalist pretensions
to overpower Win/Win resilient integrity.

The Public Health-Wealth Dissertation

What lies closest to godliness for you?

Cleanliness/purity,

Integrity,

Compassion,

Resilient health,

Wise Win/Win wealth

Other

 

Why?

Does your answer change if the question turns to:

What lies closest to Gaian EarthGoddess for you?

If so, why?

If not, why not?

 

These questions came up as I was looking for a dissertation topic for Euclid University’s PhD in Inter-Religious Dialogue and International Diplomacy.

On Euclid’s website we read something about what this is all about:

“Interfaith diplomacy is an important and new emerging field of research, notably in view of ongoing inter-religious [Win/Lose] conflict, mass migrations [not unrelated to climate change, and trending in that further unfortunate pathological Lose/Lose direction], and grave issues related to radicalization [and concomitant economic and political concerns of growing belief and behavior and investment in apartheid, monoculturing silos, self-ghettoization, and viral tendencies toward Lose/Lose rabid climates of disintegrating terrorism, dualistic nature v spirit theologies, degeneratively entropic absence of robust cooperativity—lack of Win/Win systems thinking, integral multicultural dialogue and design—fading polycultures of democratically liberal love and economic/ecological health development through Win/Win creolization rather than more Business As Usual Western commodification of sacred, integral, holonic, nonsectarian, interdependent Earth].”

Then we can read something about why:

“Euclid’s specialized PhD degree focuses on interfaith practice and the actual application of interfaith skills in the [healthy] community [of non-sectarian, non-violent, non-partisan, non-nationalistic, non-sadistic, non-masochistic cooperative democratic discernment of Win/Win integral responses to outstanding issues seeking effluent equity and affluent interdependent systems, ecosystems, egosystems, governing systems, co-governing systems, eco-governing green systems,…], rather than the advancement of [merely] academic [left-brain dominant, commodified, Win/Lose default Either/Or competitive contradicting and dividing what God may have originally kept Both/And bilaterally bicamerally and binomially cause/effect, Alpha/Omega, Left/Right, Yang/Yin, patriarchal Either/Or and matriarchal Both/And perpetual-flowing matriarchally sacred nutritional integrity kept together for further healthy-wealth Win/Win discernment, discussion, dialogue, non-sectarian diplomacy] knowledge for it’s own sake.”

“Our program places a special [Win/Win] emphasis on contemporary Islam, Muslim-Christian [Abrahamic patriarchal cooperatively co-investing in fertile multicultural and ecologically healthy wealthy self/other-optimizing integrity, authority, responsibility, resilient Win/Win stewardship of power, light, life, economic Zero-interest smart green co-investment,…] dialogue, modern [liberally cooperative green-conservation of left/right, north/south, west/east co-dominant experiential] secularism, as well as de-radicalization [non-violent communication through compassionately resilient cooperative health-supporting words and trusted Golden Rule Win/Win deeds] and [ecologically ecclesiological knowledgeable and wise mutual-polyculturing] mediation.”

 

So, when I was invited to present a dissertation topic, I suggested:

The technology and philosophy of dialogue, diplomacy, conflict resolution, restorative justice, peace-making, non-violence, WinWin solutions, derive from philosophy, theology, natural and social sciences, and perhaps even abstract psychotherapeutic geometrics.  Rather than asking the more classical academic questions of how are these better and worse than each other, how do they differ, perhaps it is more fruitful to diversely and interdependently compare these health/pathology paradigms to search for their most resilient therapeutic WinWin communion and wealthy holonic promise?

Using a combination of Systems and Game Theory, I have a dissertation interest in looking more closely,

with a local interfaith community of ecological/theological dialogue, at any two or three of the following sources to see how their analogical mapping (Gregory Bateson, Ecology of Mind) might combine to inform a robust nonsectarian healing process for Earth’s wounded economic and political climates, natural and spiritual, secular and sacred, and how we might enter into a secular/sacred non-sectarian health-and-climate-care implementation cooperative mission for healing our local Earth, wounded plants, and EgoLeft/EcoRight

Paul Tillich/Arthur Peacocke      Christian theology                       dialectal panentheism

Charles Eisenstein               cooperative economics                  sacred WinWin evolution

(possibly in dialogue with Universal/Unitarian principles)

David Holmgren            permaculture design (integral)         multicultural health outcomes

Robert Norton                       communications theory                   enthymematic reiteration

To my surprise, this Win/Win cooperatively facilitated research proposal was rejected as not germane to the purposes and implementation focus of the Win/Win Inter-Religious Integrity Dialogue and Public Resilient Health Diplomacy PhD program, with stipulated intent to remain responsive to a United Nations cooperative Win/Win Earth Health Service training project to derive the most resilient terms possible for global co-investment.

So, instead of facilitating a local inter-religious and international dialogue, which would be expensive, sacrifice some trees, burn some gas and oil, it occurred to me to invite you into an even larger community of dialogue about what are our highest public and private health priorities for multiculturally cooperative people who understand godliness and/or Gaian/Marian EarthGoddessness as at least sufficient power to intend enough cooperative integrity for generating light out of nondual darkness.

Which, on living Earth, has produced some astounding evolution of compassionate grace history, and some other, darker herstoric repressions.  Even so, we each seek to facilitate and mentor polycultural resilience, polyphonic resonance, polynomial Win/Win communication, polypathic ways, and ego/eco-centering means toward divinely-humane healthy truth of wealth-abundant beauty. Or so it seems to me, which is why my answer is:

To co-facilitate good faith integrity of Earth’s vast health/wealth potential.

Dubious Differences

What is the difference between a Rescuer
and a Facilitator?
A codependent
and a resilient health-enabler?

Why?
If we insist we must have at least one,
What is a difference
between a pan-sectarian Messiah/Bodhisattva,
a co-inviter into health-fertile mutual service
And, a compassioned co-facilitator,
an eco/ego-therapist,
An Other/Self-cooperative healer?

As for the first,
I look for a distinction,
unconscious or not,
between LeftEgo’s self-dominant intent
for internal wealth-serving service,
growing more fame and less infamy,
more adoration and less apathy,
self-rescuing from an anonymous pit
of unprominent history;

On the other hand,
the Facilitator is an equal opportunity rescuer
for both Ego and Ego’s healthy EcoHabitat,
including planet,
animals and plants and people,
foreign forests and HereNow complex technocratic cities,
far away deserts and internal oceans of motion,
former golden days and still perpetual nights,
past nutrition and future health,
ancient tribes and future families.

As for differences
between sacred CoMessiahs
and eco-over-ego secular therapists,
perhaps the difference between an integral spirit of abundant faith
and a robust soul for healthy and humble HereNow agnosticism,
like John Rawls’ vulnerable veil of self/other unknowing,
perhaps this is one of those distinctions between metaphysical identities
without a RealTime physical nature difference,

The dubious difference between non-violent sacred communication
and enthymematic,
nondual-WinWin,
secular co-passionate discernment,
between LeftBrain active hope
for future cooperative healthy-wealth understanding,
and RightBrain historical faith
in ancient wealthy-health tribal experience

DNA’s secular/sacred nonsectarian history
of rescuing ourselves
from dubious
dead-end
unhealthy differences.

What’s the difference between what’s metaphysically uplifting
and what’s physically integral,
interdependent,
synergetic?

Maybe both are heavier
and one promises to co-arise lighter?
