Appropriate Cultures

Cultural ownership,
disproportionately lavished upon kings,
the occasional ecopolitical queen,
white male Republican Senators,
elite corporate CEOs
overdriving inside monocultural management
feeding consumer acquisitive appetites

Leads to cultural entitlement, encroachment?

Elitely leads to cultural appropriation,
where I win appropriate proportions
as your disproportionate loser misfortune,

And,
sometimes to multicultural creolization,
where everyone wins Golden Rules and Ratios
co-arisingly together.

Written On Our Hearts

Some issues,
some opportunities,
are written across great Western and Eastern cultures,
Northern and Southern economies,
Left and Right hemisphere structured minds,
breathing out- and in-forming lungs,
beating in- and then out-flowing hearts.
Flight toward freedom
and open-air healthy impressions,
and fight against racial oppression,
health depression,
patriarchal suppression,
competing capitalist corporate repression

Frighten by blaming
and anger by shaming
people
who might otherwise consider sharing responsibility
for growing climates and monocultures of fragility.

Our individual and collective win/lose contempt
fear
anger
hate acted out
expressed verbally and non-verbally
leave wounds,
disproportionately worn by NonElites;
poor, regardless of color, gender, but especially our young,
girls and women,
LGBTQ individuals, families, multicultural communions,
people exhausted by incorporated straight
white
LeftBrain Either/Or competitive
male dominant
anthropocentric fragility
divesting of healthy EarthClimates
unraveling through too long histories
of colonizing ecopolitical Elitist cultures.

When a society is rabidly growing rage,
fear and anger climates
frighten and anger people,
especially young and old NonElites
too close
yet too far from cooperative Green NewDeals
we expected from EarthMother’s earliest
and most resonant Womb and Breast.

Our Elite/NonElite journey
to WholeSelf/Other learning
to express fear and anger
looks for Green NewDeal ways
to heal
ourselves
and all creatures sharing Earth with us;
all living systems,
all subclimates,
all habitats,
all communions, sanctuaries, asylums, ghettoes of apartheid,
our covenanted and un-covenanted Allies,
Alliances,
extended families cooperatively co-investing
to heal fear and anger apart-ism
win/lose wounds,
by reorganizing our cooperative re-investments
in repairing healthy wealth of MotherEarth
and lesser elite/non-elite coalitions
cooperative-owners
public/private health investors

Following dipolar structured scripts
written across each ego/eco-living heart
pumping nutrition in,
then out,
and in again,
out again
breathing in,
then out,
then in again
health,
predicting outgoing wealth
informing,
then outgoing
wealth in
as health outcome
co-investing experiential climates
balancing tipping points
of internal externalizing nurture,
warm accompaniment
restoring peace incoming
as justice outgoing
di-polar co-arising
recreative intention
self/other perpetuation.

Spangled Star Banners

Oh say, did you notice
a national predative anthem?
Moving immediately
urgently,
without reflection of starlight
sent or received,

From waving flags predicting weapons
fueled by complexly masculine
emasculating
militarized corporate industries
of mutual defensive risks
against international cooperative opportunities
to coinvest

In smoke-filled dawns of manifest destiny
toward freedom for all
self-righteous straight white males
especially with a divine right
as Earth’s owners of enslaved
exploited property,
and home to the brave mercenaries
of death
and dying
and divestment technologies.

This anthem
is based on a patriarchal
powerful
psychological
and spiritual
and natural
and ecological
theological error.

Nowhere in our personal experience
nor our economic or political history
do we fight for freedom.

We do fight against oppression
but we flee,
apart or together, toward freedom.

Emigration is about exodus
toward hope and freedom.

Declaring wars,
expressing
and investing
our collective fears and angers,
These are about lands taken from reserved,
and feminized
and marginalized
and enslaved laborers,
forced immigrants into non-elite oppressions
of nationalism
patriarchalism
elite v non-elite dualism,
divides,
absence of win/win communication,
xenophobia
monoculturing suppressions
repressions

Where polypathic left with right win/win prominence
longs for polycultural confluence
rather than cognitive/affective dissonance,
flag waving
nationalistic predative anthems
sung empty-heartedly
with elitist left-brain opulence.

Safe Space

Am I safe now?
Are we safe?

Is it safe to listen here?
To speak of over there?

Is Earth safe to sing?
Safe to dance with?
Safe for new birth?
To spin past romance?

Does life matter
if no one’s noticing?
Remembering?
If no one’s vocation
is to sacredly listen?
while all creation refills silent gaps.

Are we safe now?
Reborn silent angels,
angels of light,
pushing back this dark night.

PolyPaths Toward WarmFelt Metaphonics

A childhood memory warmly reminds

A game of Where’s the Thimble,
hidden by a gang of siblings,
or just one strategic sister,
left for me to rightly find
as I wander through our living room,
following bilateral cues,

You’re cold,
freezing really.
Now you’re getting warmer.
No, not that way,
toward winter.
Now you’re getting hot…
now boiling,
burning up!

Temperature
changing through time
as metaphor
for sacred thimble climates
hidden among spatial options.

When thinking analogically,
a left-brain comparative contrast communication culture
sounds like resonantly fed
warm nutrition,
feeding and watering social hunger
and thirst left upon righteousness

While miscommunication,
deliberate mendacity
ruins our cooperative game,
analogous to toxicity,
pathological fragmentation,
predicting further degenerative disarray,
poor menu planning,
lack of win/win co-intentional play.

Meanwhile,
if feeling metaphorically,
a right-brain both/and comparative integrity
looking for a healthier re-enculturation process,
a more holistically satisfying experience,
climax
culmination where two or more frames of reference,
trees of paradigm relationship,
are not only thought of as side-by-side, either/or
but also felt as inward nuclei, root systems
co-passioning outward climate boundary gates
breathing in/out
nutrition/extraction.

Here, nutrients
well-digested
may also feel robust and happy,
healthy warm communication,
becoming warmer communion,
tropical creolization,
radical metaphor, yes,
but, much more significantly fundamental,
seminal for all win/win healthy global species,
metaphonic rhapsody,
polypathic polyphonics.

As left-brain polynomials
are ecologically
and theologically
and egologically
and ethologically not(not) potentially co-operative
polynomial integrity

As ZeroZone’s entropic in-between emptiness
predicts timeless intersectionally communicating fullness
of Alpha/Omega scripts
humane/divine
secular/sacred
ego/eco
YangPower/Yintegrity.

But, said the right-brain the(0)logist
to the left-brain ec(o)logist,
“Why might this be so?”

Why might left-brain’s ego-centering life
become love’s left/right win/win ocean
of DNA fractal potentialities?

Regenerative win/lose life’s global multicultural love
caring through warm cooperative theists,
reverse bilaterally refined
by not despairing, competitive atheists
longing for community,
not quite so much unfeeling entropy,
cold ecological relative analogy
of warm and full
theologically humane/divine immanent relationship.

Polyphonic polypaths
shout cold against analogical famine,
metaphoric numbness.

Resolutions
compare win/lose problems
to win/win solutions
in sacred stories of and about ego-lives
metaphors for epic trans-regenerational loves
suffering cold history
in search of warm thimbled happiness.

Competitive co-arising analogies
need not suppress cooperating metaphors
where warm regenerate acceptance
is not cold bad news tolerance
of competitively mendacious mediations
against brothers and sisters,
cousins,
future aunts and uncles,
extending metaphoric families
of EarthTribes
turning and returning polycultural integrity
encouraging warm resonant faith
within good news living resilient rooms
and networks of global health/wealth communication.

Reforming Democratic Faith

Seems like advocates for cooperatively-invested dialogue
are concerned about indoor classroom experiences
that feel a lot more like debate
or merely academic,
detached,
cold analysis of win/lose evolutionary history,
in which might proves rightwing kleptocratic victories
while lefter democratic peace voices
fade into non-violent
non-verbal communications
just among our oh-so-tolerant lefty hugging selves.

I’ve been talking to our Faith Formation Director
about why Unitarian-Universalist Universities
are
and are not
appropriate educational dialogue multicultures
for any faith formation,
active hope reformation,
compassionate therapy development,
climate health rather than more climate pathology.

It seems that good faith formation
precludes bad lack of trust deformation,
disinformation,
egotistic debate cultures
where winners take all
and losers run off in search of some safer classroom.

For me,
outdoor classrooms feel safer
for win/win multicultural dialogue
between nutritionally communicating allies,
consuming and producing healthy natural elements
like richer soil,
cleaner water,
better air,
balanced ego/eco-systemic climates
where distinctions between wealth and health
are held collectively for further refinement,
and not hoarded autonomously
for further isolating definitions
into either-or thinking
without sufficient emotional intelligence
for both health and wealth of feeling.

Outdoor classrooms
endorse dialogue
about how ecology and theology,
like science and sentience
outside and inside,
refine good trusting faith formation together
more left and right hemispheric
rightwing and leftwing heuristic exploration
toward in-between mutually cooperative discovery
uncovery of win/win potentialities,

Rather than all that inside classroom
business as supremely left-hemisphere academic
egocentric
anthropocentric left v right debate
about whose cold calculating weapons
are best for overpowering warm organic tools
of Earth’s most polycultural producing healthy wealth.

Reforming left and right hemispheric dialogue
feels better,
naturally and spiritually,
holistically and holonically;
outside ecological relationships
forming good faith
of and for inside theological compassion.

Eden Garden Dreams

Gardens,
like dreams
and other multiculturing complexities,
process
and sometimes progress into becoming ripe,
then unbecoming dormancy,
advent of and for regardening
redreaming seeds
preparing to further process

Perennial primal roots deepening into
new spring’s progressive attachment
network of polycultural dream garden nutrition,
aesthetic nurture,
ethical nature,
animating spirit of Earth’s co-arising life.

Eden’s original rising
and subsequent falling Garden
surrounds our GreenTribal Tree
of Ego/Eco-centering Life and WinterDeath.

The Creator’s forbidden foreshadow Tree
of Good and Evil
is a secondary,
yet divinely co-inspired, Tree
on our LeftBrain monocultural way
toward reducing Life to Good
and seducing Death through Evil–

Dreaming up and down
Win to Lose evolutionary models
and capitalism’s mono-atheistic further investments
in secularizing-commodifying Life
while spiritualizing accommodating Death;
praising win-win peace
while raising lose-lose Falls
re-enacting retributive divine greed,
detached disdaining injustice,
childish, perhaps adolescent at best, pettiness.

Evil, like Death,
is no more original
than the Great Fall and Eternal Winter,
whether we see and hear,
taste and touch
as divine Gardeners
or merely regenesis EarthTribal dreamers
of generic Spring uprisings
and Summer sensory climaxes
for Eden’s Tree of cooperatively original EcoLife,
and secondarily hibernating foreshadows of Ego-Death

Waiting
like an original Falling spring
for our ecofeminist deep green learning RightBrain

Rising Up
like a new spring garden,
like a dreaming root-systemic Tree
of GoodLife win-win cooperative processes
and EvilDeath lose-lose competitive climate pathology
of and for further revolutionary
divinely inspired creations,
re-creations,
evolutions and devolutions
in Eden Gardens,
regenerative and degenerative dreams
co-arising good and evil fruit
absorbed by ecofeminists
and devoured by patriarchs

Together
equally interdependent
in good life
through evil death
EarthTribal loyalty,
interdependent patriotism,
universal solidarity,
compassion,
love

Original humane/divine attachment
and secondary wealth detachment
and tertiary health regenesis.
