Humbling Gratitude

Monasteries,
both Western and Eastern,
traditionally practice

The Way of Poverty,
A trusting Truth of Chastity,
And a Life of Obedience

To both spiritual and natural authority,
laws,
rules,
practices
both political and ecological
within their diverse sectarian cultures.

Yet this tripartite theme
of natural/spiritual discipleship
follows a nutritionally mentored practice
of both Western Messianic Princes of Peace
and of Eastern Bodhisattva Matriarchal PeaceWarriors

Preaching a Way of Gratitude,
Practicing a Truth of Compassion,
Projecting a Life of harmonic Humility

Within and Without;
within human nature
and also throughout all Earth
as SacredHome, oikos, Eco
with many subclimates,
diverse landscapes,
interrelated species
of and for Earth’s Gaian sacred nature.

A Way of Gratitude
embraces
a Life of profoundly democratic Humility,
avoids plutocratic ego-supremacist hubris,
and grows most abundantly within multiculturing Truths
of compassionate Win-Win choices.

Humility of Ego
avoids fake piety,
finds fake patriotism profoundly sinister and unfulfilling,
grows co-passionate within gratitude’s SacredHome embrace.

Gratitude of Ego
grows polyculturally co-invested with Humility
in awe of all sacred Earth’s Regenerative Natures,
Cultures,
HealthyClimates,
Wealthy-Fertile Landscapes.

And here,
in this sacred EarthSpace and Time
of timeless mythos-logos NOW,
YangLeft EgoCenters
and YinRight EcoCentrists nutritionally embrace
co-passionately nurturing,
restoring ego-peace as also eco-justice.

So too, individual MotherTrees
of Life and Death
reforest Earth’s ecojustice
and cooperatively matriotic peace.

Not merely a Win to Lose
Way of economic poverty for some,
but Win-Win Truth of compassionate wealth for all SacredCreation,
Life of natural-spiritual obedience and abundance
within ecological and ethological laws of meaning
purpose
ritual
celebration
polypathic wonder.

Within full-diastatic
CoMessianic-Bodhisattva harmonic multicolor,
LeftBrain science of cooperative economic humility,
RightBrain arts of compassionate polyculturing health,
conjoined within
positive good health Faith
actively restoring ego/eco-therapeutic Win-Win gratitude
incarnating Sacred Gaia’s karmic Grace.

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.

BornAgain GrandKids

Your grandfather wants to apologize
not just for voting for Donald Trump,
but also for praying he would continue in Presidential Office
with YHWH’s fertile blessings
of sacred ChristCentered Hearts and Minds,
economic and political leadership of divine Retributive Judgment.

Honey,
I think you’re about to lose them
with this punishing narrative.
Why don’t you just tell them he’s sorry
for loving Donald’s Mutual-Assured Destruction,
Lose ecologically now to Lose again economically later
verging off toward
Oops! I guess I blew-up and out the grandkids
without future healthy
cooperative
multiculturing generations
of most any species.

Most any, yes…
but human nature-spirits have already received
redundant fire and water and hurricane warnings,
Prophecies of Awesomely Awful Climate Pathologies
to come in time for our grandkids,
and their probably not bothering with any kids,
and then possibly a faithful remnant
of their potential grandkids,
hopefully more Win-Win acclimated.

So I need to let them know
this was a fault shared by a large vocal USA minority
of supremacist
patriarchal
monotheistic fundamentalists
with retributive justice is JealousGod on their fixated minds
building toward revolutionary
HellFire and Brimstone eruptions
of global ecopolitical conflagrations
and species-generalized holocaust.

Something like that,
yes dear.
Try to tell them we’re sorry
about the Trump thing
without also scaring off their grand-kids
and possibly their Win-Win cooperative grandkids,
more polypathically ecopolitical
and into ReStorative Healing Justice as Grace,
Matriotic Earth Peace,
CoMessianic Judeo-Christian Communion
of Nature-Spirit EarthWonder
and DeMilitarizing Awe,
Bodhisattva PolyCultural Outcome Health and Safety Planners
and Advocates
and Warriors for Global Peace ReStorations,
more integrated ZeroSoul binomial Economic Health
as political EarthTribe ecological wealth optimization,
and other Sacred MotherEarth Ego/Eco CQI Outcomes,
bilaterally Bayesian trend
(0)Sum
Win-Win ReGenerative Outcomes.

Yeah,
but wouldn’t want to scare off the fundamentalist
anti-intellectual great-great-great grandsons,
and further repressed
suppressed
depressed granddaughters,
anti-democratic
anti-egalitarian
anti-humane-divine nondualism,
anti-multicultural
dualLeft-darkRight
totalitarian bad-faith pathological remains
of a once great society.

By then
we’ll have this sacred species as EarthTribe Future investments down
and up to mystical-mythical-ecological confusions,
chaos and complexity Confucians,
or maybe PostMillennial Taoists
of and for ReStorative Justice
and Global Green EarthTribe Peace,
through mutually assured health and safety
timeless and eternal love,
which is seldom discovered
or delivered,
evolved
or much less invited
or even sustainably revolutionary
at the end
of a Lose-Lose (0)Sum gun.

Not to mention the unlikely prospects
of restoring humane-divine love
through an entire global jihad
or HolyWar
or JustWar retributive punishment theory
for Fallen Natures
of competing Infidels.

Honey,
you’re scaring the grandkids again,
and shrinking the great great great grandkids
beyond restorative dimensions of ecojustice
and peaceful dreams.

Sorry love.
OK, kids,
bedtime begins now.
Time to put on your sackcloth and ashes,
and please wait until morning
to report all Revelationary Nightmares,
dualdark evil-live horses,
deductively dominant cosmological disinvestments
away from good-faith truth and trust-telling,
watering the anti-gospel weeds
and not watering to bloom polyphonic flowers
singing full-octave colors
of Grace greets Karma.

Speaking of Karma…

And lack of grateful Grace…

I wonder how the healing service is going
over at the King James Bible Church
for all those Donald Trump voters.

Irrational Numbers, with Lyrical Pretensions

The number of folks sitting
on the back porch
waiting
for peace to strike,
like waiting for my garden to grow
without yet having planted it.

The number of people
noticing that chronic victims
suffer from critical victimization events,
minus the number who also notice
that chronic crimers
also suffer from critical
criminalization
events.

The number of people
horrified by the number of victims
of prejudicial discriminashunishtion
against their ethnicity,
economic lack of class,
and suitable gender,
and age of maturation
but also unaware
of how we celebrate
positive multicultural discriminations
for diverse ethnicities,
economic cooperative sufficiencies
of fairly decent incomes,
genders, including preferences,
and age-appropriate behaviors.

The number of folks who also see
impoverishment and marginalization,
chronic social criminalization,
whenever they hear it said
of retributive justice,
deterrent incapacitation
and restraint
as additional most negative,
and possibly unnecessary, constraints.

The number of folks we retributively select
willing to settle
for uniform dark punishments
of retributive overkill,
without the slightest hint of redistributive overjoy
most anywhere
for or with anyone,
mistaking this for the unity of restorative purposes
we more peacefully
and co-redemptively
so long for.

The number of excellent scientists and parents
seeking deductively reasoned
learning processes by day
while dreaming inductively co-operatively
seeking warmer compassions through each night.

The number of economists
and politicians too,
of parents
and educators
recognizing communication
through diversely humming channels beyond simply straightforward speaking
and hearing
and watching,
to include RNA’s more regeneratively primal
feeling
and tasting
and absorbing
through rooting systems,
functioning like reverse lickers
and stickers
and salivators
and saps
and pheromone freaks.

The number of scientists
who might somehow come to realize
that tree conversations
could take place through rooting systems
underground,
plus those who also celebrate implications
that tree co-empathic conversations are,
at their highest co-operative best,
currently over our mutually
co-regeneratively
reiterating heads.

The number of folks
who feel complicit
in our punished guilt
plus those who can still celebrate
our nature’s mutually complicit passions,
born both loving predator
and beloved prey,
until parents and Sunday School
and day care teachers teach other not-so-wise.

The number of communication buffs
who think these two populations,
society’s predators and victims
reallllly neeeeed to talk,
and listen,
and not so much both at the same time,
and probably not lick
or hit with a stick
because that would be so icky.

The number of kids
who would predict
that their parents
and teachers
will compete to heat our climates up
so we all can drown together,
regardless of primal
tribal
co-identities.

The number of prophets
recognizing selves
as original native residents
of indigenous EarthTribes,
speaking
and listening
cooperatively for co-planting,
and thereby growing,
ego’s active cooperating peace
as and of and for
eco-restorationelating justice,
Left in rational solidarity with SacredRight,
DNA mutually sniffing RNA’s
optimal Paradisal CoOperating Climates.

The number of folks
still settling for talking and praying
against demonic climate changes,
when we could also be cooperatively planting
and growing
rich climates of health,
cultures of gratitude
at least for and with front porch
EarthFlag-waving
Positive PsychoEcoLogists.

The number of people
who fail to recall
that what ever you were taught as
Orthodoxy’s Sacred Truth,
at one time
was first naturally felt and sensed
as eisegetical WinWin hope,
mutually-licking and sticking
hypo-principaling around theses
with their appositional un- and anti-theses.

The number of systemic processors
actively hoping
for zero-sum
ego-in
eco-out
balancing,
Plus-Plus double-binding
both before
and after notnotnotnot yet
bilaterally timeless linear Time
restoring polypathic RealTime Tipping Points
of ZeroSoul rationality.

The number of Earth’s creatures
waiting for war’s continuing fires to drop
when we could more cooperatively learn
to wait instead for peace’s inside-outside
other secular-sacred nondual loving shoe to drop.

AntiClimatic Cabinetry

Community organizers
and multiculturing regenerators
and organic whole food farmers
all agree
we tend to end up
back to where historically empowered nutritional voices started.

Look at all these old white men
in their predominantly red meat patriarchal ties.

Is this a cabinet
made of polyculturing organic containers
for regenerate multicultural growth?

Or a funeral
for the not too soon departing
all WhiteHouse?

Hypocrisy in OnlyWhite

I am reading
“Democracy in Black”
by Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.
but continue reconstructing this title
“Hypocrisy in Only White.”

Because
when I let my memory
look back to my own self-interests in history
as archaeological digging and prying and discovery,
adventure and curiosity
of my internal ecological development,
I reweave back
through still on-going matriarchal lines
that include,
are shared with,
anyone capable of reading
and comprehending
these words of regenerating memory.

Back
to darker
denser
richer genes and memes
of cooperative to still thrive today,
saving competitions for survival moments.

Back to
better to prey together
side by side
as neanderthal brothers and sisters
than to grow predative
against each other.

This Golden Rule
of dark Afro-Eurasian
equatorial resonant depth
of historical origin
in normative play
at least until we substitute capitalism’s
supremacist agendas
for rationalism’s ego-ecocentric
reweaving memory
of this original Earth Mom
magical and mysterious
then worshiped and danced
ritualed and cooperative ownership co-governing,
then more modern radical eccentricities
forgetting our shared matriarchal
regenetic
memory of dualdark
hypocrisies of merely white inferiority
complexes
disease
dissonance
despair of remaining fully
who we together are,
where we have been
predating history
where we could return
each morning
with greatest polyphonic joy.

To paraphrase David Holmgren
(Permaculture, p. 113)
Containers were one essential organic innovation
necessary for this cooperative agrarian revolution.
Opportunities to refill organically produced bodies
are enormous
transitioning into recycling energy descent
for shared cooperative memory.
Reimaging full organic containers
is far better than sending us
away and down and out for recycling.
Most official ecopolitical waste reduction strategies
place little emphasis
on organic reuse refilling re-educating
deep ecologically learning containers,
or confuse WinWin refueling,
reweaving,
with capitalism’s WinLose recycling,
switching productive containers
into merely consuming eventual empties,
bleached-out white-washed faded hypocrisies
of purest supremacy against nothing
deeply densely
richly resonantly valued.

Two-Edged Blades

A blade of grass
produces health
in annual balancing equivalence
to consuming soil and sun’s wealth.

A human child
given Earth’s sufficiencies,
produces robust health
by consuming soil and sun’s captures
and re-investing wealth
out into this child’s multiculturing exterior.

A wise humane Elder
given Earth’s sufficiencies
and given trust of responsible authority
by a democratically cooperative polity,
Also aspires to produce healthy outcomes
within that community
in balancing proportion
through consuming soil and sun’s captured resources,
re-invested in proportion
to this year’s metabolic wealth,
and to last year’s producer reimbursements,
nurturing future ecosystemic health,
and to each next generation’s producers,
nurtured by this wise care
of Earth’s wealthiest Elders.

A wise, and yet child-like, blade
consumes economic health
to produce cooperatively synergetic political wealth.
