To Grow Peace

To faith communities
and fraternities,
brotherhoods
and sisterhoods
and sororities,
non-profits
pro peaceniks,
cooperative associations

Do not deceive yourselves.
Continuing on a monocultural
dissociated
navel-gazing path
of internal v external
navel v social gazing

Not inter-religious dialogue
about our shared peace
compassion opportunities,
political trust,
economic co-investment
is also not healthy,
not economically
or politically sustainable,
not even safe.

Monocultural silos
like food silos
and academic specialization silos
are not polyculturally
or polypathically
or polyphonically sung orchestrations,
playing preludes
for peaceful
prayerful resilience.

Isolationism
leads to militarism
as surely as inclusive gathering
and regathering
expands our economic
and political communionation

Global consciousness
of what we can, together
hope
and faith and good-humor
for a round encircling public health
and safety agenda.

Sacred silos
are iconic
of patriarchal erections
which are wonderful
but not sufficient
for resilient peaceful fertility,
regenerativity,
reconnection,

Polycultural
multicultural re-ligion
of Earth’s vastly diverse
peak and valley co-immersions.

Do not passively believe
that Sunday morning monocultural apartheid
does not contribute
to weekday despair
depression
dissociation
of polycultural paradise potential

Not utopian,
but an ongoing global
human adventure
in becoming together
healthier and safer
than any one community
nation
continent
ecosystem
bioregion
can become

Worshipping apart
from glorious Gaian
panentheistic integrity

Which cannot deceive ourselves
into remaining in claustrophobic
monocultural marching squares
rather than dancing
in polycultural spiraling circles
of good faith
and humor,
healthy
and safe,
more resiliently peaceful communications
than religiously supremacist
apartheid.

ThanksGiving CommunioNations

ThanksGiving advances

Arising thoughts about boundary breaching risks
and perennial partisan issues
and deep listening opportunities.

Perhaps only the Othering
and Othered One Percent
instilling in their children
and future grandchildren
that extended family meals
are never an appropriate time
or sacred space
to speak of desecrating politics
or sanctimonious religion
and, above else,
nothing remotely suggestive
of personal sex histories
and fantasies.

And yet,
from a deep power analysis perspective
of richly co-invested feelings,
these three,
together,
form a developmental narrative
of how spiritual empowerment,
RightHemisphere felt,
and natural enlightenment,
LeftHemisphere considered
and reconsidered
and preconsidered
and formerly unconsidered
thoughts

Develop toward co-passion,
gratitude,
resilient capacity for giving
and receiving Thanks

However agnostic
atheistic
monotheistic
polytheistic
and/or panentheistic

Our sensory sexual systems
are indigenous,
forming already
before we are born,
known,
heard
and smelled
and tasted.

Religious
or even anti-religious enculturation
speaks to our sensory-spiritual
mental
metaphysical experiences

Peaks and valleys
on a range from empowering positive feelings
and negative diesmpowering associations
with metaphysical thoughts
and physical feelings,
attitudes,
belief systems
dreams
and nightmares

Sometimes closed,
and therefore entropic,
and degenerating,
claustrophobic
and pathological

And sometimes open
and whole
and regenerating,
trusted
and healthy
and resilient.

Here
where resonant metaphors emerge
more helpful social communication boundaries
change
morph
conciliate
creolize,
embrace win/win sexual
and religious
and political strategies

Unlike win/lose work
remains politely segregated
from win/win play
at tearing down judgmental
stress and trauma boundaries

Like dark and light,
seriously competitive vocations
remain dimly dissociated
from humorously cooperative vacations
from old capitalist school
patriarchal business as bottom-line
competitions for short-term profits

While investing in
more long-term fruitful
political relationships
can also become explicitly sexual
and/or implicitly religious,
spiritual
and natural,
mental
and physical powers
of not only self-righteous internal governance
but also Other governing fair
and equitable
and integral power relationships,
cooperative win/win
and/or competitive win/lose
and/or despondent lose/lose.

After the second glass of wine,
with the kids off at their G-rated table,
and football announcers
creating white
and blue and black and brown
and hot red seething
tight shoulder and hip pad testosterone
distracting noises
and visions
and revisions
in life’s sensory underground
and background

It might be appropriate
to ask about a cherished Other’s
sexually political spiritual energy lives
as if trauma-reducing resilience
through nonviolent communication
deeply
sacredly
integrally matters

When healthy and safe communication
remains politically felt
and religiously thought
and neuro-sensory shared
becomes welcome curiosity
and invited transparency
and cherished vulnerability,
what has never been courageously discussed
may also be what empowers thankfulness
and enlightens this Gratitude Day

For rich sensory meals
and peak experiences,
for robust political laughter and joy,
and spiritual integrity
of resiliently good humor
and health-enlightened
smells and tastes and looks
and wealth-empowering grace

We might yet give thanks
this religious
and political
ThanksGiving Day,
including both neuro-sensory fulfilling peaks
and over-stuffed purgation valleys.

Not Making War

In anti-social economics
for escalating violence
and waging war,
what matters most
is who
and/or what
you actively distrust
divest enough to sustain revenge
and imprisoning
dissonant
dissociative dispassion.

In politics,
as diplomacy
and peace-building
and making love,
what matters most
is who
and/or what
you invest in trust
enough to create
and recreate compassion.

In healthy
and safe ecopolitics,
what matters most
is who
and/or what
you co-invest with trust
and do not secretly distrust
enough to recreate
therapeutic compassion
letting go of hate
before it’s too late
for traumatic unknowns
to become outgrown
historic dispassions
disappointments
disarray,
health and safety

than settling for win/lose

is better than lose/lose

like an unconditionally
cooperatively regarded “No Way!”

To lack of sacred enabling integrity
which lose/lose traumatizes
decontextualizes

Compassion’s unconditionally flowing
reforming polytheistic love

Is life’s bilateral
metaphysical potential sanctity,
dignity,
enabling wise integrity
regardless of physical abilities
and left-brain dominant
verbal articulation
enabling communionation
capacities

To write about
moderation in all metaphysical
and physical declarations
and implementations
of RightWing

Therapeutic JustUs

Lori Gottlieb
describes mental health mediators
and dream translators
prescribing more cost-effective therapeutic questions:

Who am I?
What do I want?
What’s in my natural health/spiritual wealth
bilaterally balancing way?

What do I want more:
to autonomously control
OR
to be part of some monopolizing,
possibly monotheistic, Thing
bigger than egocentric Me?

May morph
more effluently co-therapeutic
than affluent expertise advice
into:
What do I want
to safely control
AND YET ALSO
be part of some EarthTribe
polyculturally intelligent Relationship?

Healthier
more inclusive
and indigenous
and holistic
and organic
and resilient
than excluded
and punished
and wounded
and thereby imprisoned
and victimized Me

And my LeftBrain capitalized dominance
affluently attracts Gottlieb’s rational health
and safety questions
about wounded AnthroEgos

AND my RightBrain effluent impressions
of slow-growing ecopolitical affluent feelings
grow improved for win/win cooperative global thrival
midst monoculturing win/lose competitive survival
of local health and safety therapeutic improvement
as a resilient panentheistic stress-reducer
organically connected cooperative management

more effluent trickles
and streams

Truly therapeutic
EarthTribe resilient polycultural wisdom
is more of an effluently joyful

is what the New Testament

Exploring MidTerm MindBodies

Our minds play

everyday unrenouned

not mere anthro-elitist despair

distressed loss
into polarized unaware

Lose/Lose geno/eco-cide

The opposite proposition

profoundly rich environments resiliently felt
but not always win/win seen,

Like an ego-built mortal prison
and more like an EarthTribe prism
for metaphoric myths

Wise Old GrandMother Moon

polytheistically Golden Ruled

Our EarthTribe minds
play an eisegetical
hypothetical win/win game
transubstantiating our doubting
LeftBrain dominant minds
translating our body messages,
embodied neuro-sensory context,
environmentally felt and touched
as if by amused metaphoric

Poof!
Those icky PatriarchalCapitalists
finally voted out of monoculturing
degenerative
climate traumatizing
stress-triggering

CoOperative Communion

These people I safely know
who like to healthy grow
fail to distinguish
between cooperative housing
and cooperative households

Which
as we all seem to know
although textbooks often fail to show
include cooperative gardening
and cooperative farming
and possibly cooperative
organic management
of a polytheistic living planet.

In each interdependent case
we explore something together,
some primal trinitarian relationship
between healthy resilience
and safe transitions
and beautifully balanced
resonant energy

Synergy produces
co-arising fruits of sexual
sensual
and sacred exotic
erotic regenerate sensations

Further witchy wonder which,
like a resonantly tasty
and fragrant,
richly brown and black
white and green
orange and yellow
red textured
robust stew,

Cooperatively touch
and feel
and show
and thereby know
a primally sublime
healthy
safe
and beautiful home.

Funeral For A BiPolar Alien

Friends,
Trumpians,
EcoFeminists

We gather here
to no longer hear divisions
across a win/lose
zero-sum aisle
so we can see revisions
within a win/win
nonzero-exponential
future free of buried guile.

Green flowing fullness
no longer mourned
for lost love of deep polytheistic
polyculturing wealth
buried in deep
indigenous
metaphoric meaning

RedBlooded LeftBrain anthro-alien exceptionalism
may open whole resurrection systems
to universal anthro-healing skillsets
widely re-educating
re-birthing
re-incarnating analogical
ecological
theological shared purposes

For getting,
and not forgetting to get,
out of bed healthy
and potentially happy
win/win optimistic

Even on this cold
wet grey Monday morning
buried inside claustrophobic
windowless
closed door
meet and meet
and greet and regreet
and regreet meetings
curiously scheduled
and rescheduled
and unscheduled
and overscheduled burials
of hidden win/lose agendas

Continuing sacred graveside
all afternoon
on into early dusk
late life
of peace returning
eventide outside

Benediction
for formerly divided
green ecofeminist aliens
and our redblooded
health happy wealth
of inside/outside allies.

Treasuring the Educator

A former friend of mine
tricked me into becoming
something I am not

The volunteer President
of our condo association,
a position I clearly cannot afford
midst trifling disassociations.

We were starting our Autumn tradition
of arguing about next year’s budget
which typically continues
until we recommend something utterly preposterous
to our membership
which they will certify
remains inevitably inept
and fail to ratify.

As usual
I had brought my manicure
and pedicure kit
and was just starting to work on my nails
when I noticed our Treasurer
became more animated
whittling his thick stick
as he became more concerned
about what residents are losing

More than interested
in what resilience we all might gain
by cooperatively discussing
what we hoped to win
by remaining together to complain
rather than lose
by fostering further
whittled down polarization,
debate,
predative Patriarchal Capitalist
zero-sum economic games
not for the faint hearted to explain
and weak-nailed to refrain,
furthering our political apartheid
without EarthJustice
therapeutic rebate

Our parsimonious Treasurer
operates from a presumed strategic position
of holding Aces
in all four empowered
and enlightened suites,
empirical voices,
win/lose trumping win/win choices:

  1. Legal institutional document authority
    which provokes a yawn,
  2. Political membership voting power
    with an 88 to 5 majority
    on his oppressive side,
  3. Economic responsibility
    to our tax and fee paying majority
    with neglected cuticles, and
  4. social-cultural expectations
    for rational
    Straight White Male privileged
    self-interested
    capitalist business behaviors
    like playing golf
    and paying lap dancers
    to do what I would gladly do for free
    if I could avoid these dreadful
    defeating meetings.

While switching to my feet,
I also noticed
our tax-payer responsible Educator
vigorously responded
while vehemently knitting two
and furiously purling three

She moves away from
prior win/win positions
favoring therapeutic strategies
when she votes against
a loan for beat-down residents
to fix our leaky
crumbling corporate problems

Rather than abstaining
because now,
unlike last week,
she has become unclear
about whom
and possibly why
the Treasurer
and the Accountant
and the Bookkeeper
will debit just the 88 Residents
or the 5-vote School
for improvements
exclusive to the residential side
of our sadly governing equation.

I also notice
our scarf-knitting Educator
has moved away from supporting
a win/win trade formerly championed:
White Mansion for the School
and Glass Factory for the Residents

Now she contests this even-steven
to invest in another strategic competition,
win/lose backpedaling,
now claiming disproportionate future values
for bargaining,
debate positioning,
repolarizing
while she rips out yet another ribbing row,
another year too ripped off
not grow

Perhaps,
one day in our dismal future
we will see where this might go

More cooperatively thawing
drawing toward win/win center
for indigenous sacred wisdom values:

  1. licit equity of whittling natures
    and knitting medicine spirits,
  2. politically crafted co-empathy,
  3. economic health-nailed co-investments, and
  4. socially therapeutic
    restorative justice
    favoring win/win strategic right
    and left-handed
    and footed
    health is polyculturing wealth
    communication

Because clearly this night
we are not having our best
multicultural non-fright
cooperative mediation
of momentary delight

Wherein we retain well-manicured focus
on what we anticipate
moving forward more beautifully together
rather than lost in whittled down anxiety
about what we will never support

For lack of egocentric
anthropocentric
monotheistic
monocultural predative gain

As our corporate Treasurer’s win/lose strategy
to some better deferred peace day
EarthJustice regain
without all our polarizing
hocus pocus

To retain a more regenerative win/win wedding
less autonomously win/lose divorced

More cooperatively
and therapeutically discussed
of course
while I re-examine my left pinky
with absent minded disgust

About a now former friend of mine
who tricked me into becoming
some hang-nailed treatment
I am not.
