The Pleasure Principle

I’m not sure what Freud’s Pleasure Principle is all about,
or was about Health and Safety;

Whether it’s in
or out,

Whether hedonistic
and narcissistic
or the mundane
secular
capitalist
corporate product
of efficient sexual therapy
and heartless entertainments.

Whether the Principle is applicable
only to secular masters
for optimal “sacred rights” experience

Or also accessible to sacred slaves
as our secularized vocation
to provide for our nasty property owners,

Whether it is the primary purpose
of capitalism’s efficient,
if ruthlessly competitive,
corporate monocultural deformation
into post-climax apathy
and cynicism
and cruel and unusual punishments,

Yet, somehow,
as I merge into this stream
of organic fossils
still miraculously refueling,

I am sure this Pleasure Principle,
Beacon of Health and Safety Bliss,
Paradise Pursuit

Could only be entered
by those wise enough to recognize
it is cooperatively
globally
multiculturally owned,
managed interfaith communion,
interdependently experienced
and multiplied

Into raptures
of organic/cosmic
internal/external climates
of and for personal
political
economic
ecological
theological
neurological win/win Climax

Of spaciated bilateral Time
dynamically equals revolutionary bicameral Space
in NonZero-Sum
open-holistic yet still emergent
equipoise waves
of self/other co-conscious
co-passionate
co-empathic
co-intentional
co-operative comm-union comm-unication.

Well,
thanks for sharing all that.

De nada;
my Pleasure.

Old Run Ins and Outs

Ran into an old friend
just the other day.

Has to have been
50 years
another way.

She made that big mistake
of asking what I’ve been up to.

Well, I’ve been studying
systematic multicultural theology
and, then, regenerative ecology.

Oh,
that sounds nice.
Probably keeps you out of trouble.

Yes, well, I guess it is nice,
but not trouble-free.
Another word
might be “athletic.”

Like soccer?

More like gymnastics
and long distance running.
Anyway,
have you ever heard of Process Theology?
It has a first Christian cousin
in Creation Theology,

Brought to us sytematically
by Matthew Fox,
but also rooted more experientially,
synergetically,
by both Eastern and Western nature/spirit mystics.

Well, sounds like I have some homework
to do–to catch up.

Just Google process theology
or creation theology
or, better, both
and see if you can see
positive correlations
for those with ears
to hear.

Ok, well, thanks.
I’ll get right on that.

Then, look up regenerative ecology,
restorative environmental justice
and try creation ecology–
and maybe positive psychology’s Theory of Original Matriarchal Attachment.
See if they all sound alike
more paradigms for sprouting polypathic
feeding
watering
nonviolent ecological communication
and experiential regenerative theology.

Well, my goodness!
Look at the time…

Exactly,
the space within bilateral time,
Here within timeless Now,
Yang strong atoms
Yin flowing spiraling strings of waves,
LeftBrain dominant monoculturalism
undermining RightBrain prominent multicultural communication
unfolding in-between
chaos and complexity

Alpha and Omega
One and Zero bionic
bilateral double-binding
bicameral
natural ecological egos
and spiritual theological-neurological eco-habitats
sacred within as climates secular without
health reforming multicultural wealthy experience,
collateral compassions
of Zero NonSum-ologies;

Each of these
WinWin strategies
for healthy resilient systems.

Sorry,
had to check my texts.
Kids, you know.
Never stop being a responsible parent
or friend.
Were you still talking?

If a verbal communicator
stands
or sits
or squats in a forest
of non-listeners,
is the cooperative communicator speaking
or just talking within myself?

Silent UnPrivileged Stories

When I was a Big Brother
for Jason,
an African-American 10 year old male,
we went into his apartment
so he could look around
for a long overdue library book.

As I accompanied him
from room to sparsely furnished room,
looking in nearly vacant closets,
cupboards,
drawers,
the only book we found
was a phone book,
looking silently neglected
much more than actively abused.

My first white male privileged
feelings about his Mom
had to do with blaming her
for probably not even feeling ashamed
for her irresponsible choices
while economically and politically administering
their bookless house
in this pre-WWW information age.

But, then I began asking questions.
What could Jason tell me
about his Mom’s life
when she was his age?

What were stories
familiar to her,
read
or retold
or experienced
and re-experienced,
therapeutic or traumatic?

Through this widening narrative moment
of multigenerational conjecture,
hypothesis,
questioning,
contemplating,

I also learned to question
what traumatic straight white male stories
are experienced by gay
and bisexual
and transsexual 10-year-olds,
regardless of racial identification,

And by 10-year-old girls,
perhaps regardless of racial identification,
or even further amplified
by being doubly,
and silently, outside
straight white patriarchal privilege.

I found myself
suddenly
tearfully
incapable of briefly imagining
much less deeply,
unflinchingly contemplating
the trauma
of growing up poor
and lesbian
and black or brown
or too red
or too yellow
without any books
or stories,
read
or retold
or experienced
about how her 10-year-old life will matter,
could be healthy, someday,
would ever be felt safe,
unless held shamefully silent,

Not appropriate material
for books
or retelling
or experiencing straight
white
male dominant stories,
economic
and political narratives
about retributive trauma
and not multicultural
restorative
democratically inclusive therapy.

Moving Through Urgent Forests

I claim a sit-spot
in a wildlife sanctuaried forest
just beyond my backyard,

And cycle there
while seeking a primary distinction
between sexual and sensual feelings
filters
frames,

Already peddling toward suggestions
my motivations for this direction
could be impure,
prurient,
certainly less than perfection,

But,
I am not right-brain deterred,
This forest is my familiar territory
where fools
and wise men
fear to tread
on resonant ecofeminists.

When seeking
imagining
experiencing
remembering sexual possibilities
and impossibilities,
attractions
and distractions
and unattractiveness
along my recycling way,
these remain ego-centered
self-serving
egotistic patriarchal,
left-brain economic-politically strategic,
monoculturing further dominance.

Sensuality
is more interdependent,
co-relational,
co-empathic
co-passioning
integral
intimate awareness
of external mind touch
with internal heart feelings,
heart-pumping uphill
and soul-relaxing downhill,
inhilling
and exhilling.

Waves of contrast
speak of comparative dipolar motivators
more longterm both/and satisfying sensuality,

Contradicted
against shorterm dualistic urgency
for my immediate sexual release,
my internal-only organic polyvagal climax
quickly moving from transcendent forest life
to demi-segregating death,

And then riding on in
and out
to reconnect with my ego/eco sit-spot
with embodied sensual narrative
of this one sacred/sexual life
living polypathically
lived rememory
reliving naked forest life
hopefully again
and recycling pleasure seating again.

Practice makes perfect,
so our great everyday pilgrimage teachers
messiahs
boddhisattvas,
ecofeminists one and all,
say
and do,
ride
and walk
and talk
with integrity’s most resilient sexual/sensual/spiritual
reforesting win/win public/private wealth
reassur-dance
transcendent/intimate
global/local health potential.

We May Become A Time

We may have found a time
in human maturation
when our history of depression
becomes unveiled mutual suppression
of healthy impressions,

We may be coming upon a time
of opportunities for climate ministrations
to reverse spiritual dehydration
of ego-souls
and our co-habitating eco-soils
for healthy safety.

There may come a space
on Earth’s revolutions
when natural LeftBrain
abstract deductions
listen with less WholeEarth violence
resistance
secularizing dissonance
to Earth’s ancient RightBrain inductions,
invocations,
win/win invitations,

When physical
personal
political
economic knowledge
follows EarthMother’s original teachings
metaphysically multicultural,
interdependent
eco-political wisdom

Indigenously rebecoming
our return to Here with Now,
3DSpace with 2Dipolar Times
EgoSoul within becoming healthy EcoSystemic
anti-racist
pro-Green EarthJustice,
rebecoming NonViolent CoEmpathic UnDuality
verbal/non-verbal confluence
LeftBrain ironic coincidental Space
with RightBrain iconic co-operative Time

May be coming upon this 20/20 SpaceTime
in humane win/win playtime
of bicameral maturation,
nutrition,
communication,
win/win administration

Is better than
win/lose health and safety values
for masturbation

Is better than
total lose/lose patriarchal castration.

We may have found a
Once Upon Our EarthTime
in human eco/ego-political
Right/Left
Yin/Yang maturation
when our history of depression
becomes unveiled mutual suppression/repression
of healthy ecological
and safer theological impressions.

Great Faith Revolutions

I suppose we might uncover
many differences in theologies,
Eastern and Western,
Southern and Northern.

One of these differences
is not fundamentalism itself,
which appears on both polarized sides
of the natural/spiritual worldview aisle.

Yet within primal fundamental faith commitments
remains a profoundly appositional orientation,
between good faith
that each creature
is born fundamentally win/win enlightened,
in positive psychology
and in Eastern theology;

And bad faith
in Patriarchal Western traditions,
that all of segregated monotheistic
human nature
is born fundamentally win/lose disempowered
by sin and attachment
to ignorance,
illusion,
craving,
addictions,
rampant sensuality,
promiscuous and deviant sexuality,
a rather negative monocultural psychology
of a vengeful punishing spirituality

In tension with healthy attachment
to natural creatures,
to Creation,
to ReGenerative Fundamental Principles
of multicultural cooperation.

Strange, however,
in the narrative
spreading across developmental psychology,
matriarchal prime attachment theory
ecofeminist sociology and history,
global religious multicultural green
indigenous tribal wisdom,
and positive psychology,
our ecological natural
and theological spiritual narrators
begin with win/win DNA sacred scripture
cooperatively read between EarthMother nature
and Her co-acclimating fertile nurturing eggs
of integrity’s potential nutritional health,

After birth
comes the Great Fall
of RightBrain win/win
interdependent worldwideweb
for all EarthTribel,

Childhood transitions toward win/lose
LeftBrain verbal and deductive dominance,
iconized by secular capitalistic
monopolistic
patriarchal
competitive ego-perpetuating aggression
violence
colonization
enslavement

And LeftBrain rationalizing racist economics
and political straight white male privilege
to disempower victims
and sinful perps

Declaring exemptions to fundamentally Positive Golden Rules
against those who fail to scoff
at multicultural fundamental commitments
of ecofeminist Whole Earth
nature spirits.

A third moment in this narrative
reweaves Fundamental PreBorn Attachment
with Original PostBorn Sin,
making up Great Turnings
LeftBrain dominant
RightBrain prominent
overpowering Win/Lose capitalistic monoculturing
2020 revolving toward renewing polycultural
Transitions,

A mesmerizing three part story
of narrow ways
and means
and dipolar co-arising truths
moving toward remembering
our fundamental Born Again
Win/Win CoPassions

Of health optimizing wealth,
secular and sacred,
yang and yin,
left and right,
West and East,
North and South
theological ego/eco-fundamental bicamerality
for redemptive green and global
multicultural
Great Faith Revolutions.

Executive Summary:
To optimize Great Faith Revolutions,
all ingredients of Make America Great Again,
and then hear
then do
then say
then feel
then cooperatively touch
then develop a compassionate taste
for just the opposite
fundamental regenerative erection

UnNatural Generalists

I am more of a generalist
than a specialist
on nature
and on nurture,
on secular
and on sacred,
on ecological healthy relationships
and on theological interdependence.

Still,
like most reflective beings,
nourishing my interconnected rightbrain
while understudying leftbrain dominance
as a species
finding our spiritual natures
mysteriously segregated
from more natural nurturings.

Martha Rogers,
nurse educator extraordinaire,
describes me,
and you,
as whole,
open,
and, like all living natural systems,
temporally unidirectional.

Although, perhaps an important difference
between rightbrain spiritual
and leftbrain natural lives
of reflective bicameral awareness
is our capacity for imagining
temporal bidirectionality–

Enspirited time imagined running
forward and back again
from today’s starting point
or last night’s
or tomorrow’s

Especially when leftbrain comes into active verbal dialogue
planning healthy networks,
designing wealthy
natural/spiritual nurturing
yang/yin
left/right
ego/eco-systems
of non-violently secular and natural,
AND compassionately sacred and spiritual

Whole
Open
polypathic/polyphonic
living generalist paradigms
for active/reflective
restorative justice healing dialogue

Applicable to both natural climate health
and spiritual multiculturing wealth.

RePurposing Anger

At last,
we are angry with each other
coincidentally,
simultaneously,
which may be a coincidence,
but probably not;

Depending on active faith
in linear cause-effect relationships,
leftbrain dominant yang powers,

And/or
circular dipolar co-arising
co-passioned effective unpolarized relationship,
causes v effects = effective causal recycles
of rightbrain both/and recessive yintegrity.

Now,
at last,
we have set our synergetic communication stage
to test this ancient hypothesis
that two negatives
are equal to a potential positive co-passion,
as polynomials
may equal not not polynomials

Where positive
also equals leftbrain healthy
and rightbrain safe

And negative anger
equals leftbrain liberally
communication healthy
when rightbrain feels conservatively safe,

Despite never considering this internal hypothesis
because of patriarchal
dualistic
win/lose capitalistic faith
in not not equivalent potential
for ego/ecosystemic win/wins

Despite respite death through life
ego/eco-recycles
repurposing timeless eternity
of unity
more flexibly equitable
than uniformity
of leftbrain thoughts
with rightbrain feelings.

Doors to Power Perception

Sogyal Rinpoche
tells a Doors to Perception story.

Positive and negative feeling individuals
bear witness to a river.

Those more goddess-like
see this river as great
savory
fragrant
nutritious
beautifully resonant
musically harmonic
multiculturally rich,
a transporter of karmic mediation
preferring win/win cooperative
ecofeminist
green energy conservational
and black lives matter liberally transubstantiating
Earth’s indigenous Right
and endogenous Left,
androgynous Left
deducing Right’s inductive
sacred seductive
empowerment values.

And
We are those more patriarchal straight white privileged.
Whether monoculturing husbands
or suppressed green ecofeminist
EarthMothers with dam-bursting restorative justice rights
to vote for miserably polarized
and contentious speakers,
rather than more cooperatively discerning
non-violently active listeners,
health care resonant researchers
and climate care legislators
and benignly win/win trans-reformative administrators

Religiously remaining focused
and spiritually framed
on how hellishly ravaged
our monotheistic
and competitive monopolistic
theocratic win/lose assumptions
about river grace racing economies
have become polluted
toxic waste streams
ending in chemically satiated swamps
rather than healthy river mouths

Positive power suppressed negative karma
about the eyes of Goddess Earth Visions
and the ears of Evangelical HellRaisers
Patriarchal Terrorists
Narcissistic MonoTheocrats

Evaporating into
lose/lose monoculturing warp-drive,

aka “Climate CHANGE”
equals Earth’s ZeroZone summative core

Full=1.00%
Empty=00%
PatriarchalYang power
perceptual prejudice

And yet,
this Doors of Perception story
ends with the assumption
of Incommensurable EcoSystemic Information,
further logically concluding
from this enthymematic
unstated win/lose assumption
about the empowering value of co-empathic feelings,
of sacred green eco-feminist compassion,
of standing downstream of history’s polyculturing
multiculturing
resonantly resilient healthy wealth multicultural flow system,
the ZeroZone Capital ReSource
of the River’s flowing downhill acquisitive structure,

Both bipolarized banks agree,
flowing downstream health power
is our humane economic resource
and Earth’s political ZeroZone Source

Of whatever that redemptive baptismal
and sacred cleansing
nutritious
nurturing water
cooperatively-owned
and altruistically managed

And/or polluted,
toxic waste stream

MotherEarth owned
and transported
by deep learning river beds
of communication health power dreams
of ecosystemic communication delivery

Become power systems of neurologically win/win
v win/lose
v lose/lose
polyphonically bicameral
felt integral and holy,
healthy and safe,
wealthy and beautiful

Rightbrain wild
and leftbrain infamous,

Goddess EarthTribal
and Patriarchally Hellish,

Yin trans-regenerating
Yang’s anthrocentric ZeroZone
secular/sacred Source
for material and temporal ReSources

To notice each river’s full rainbow
of whatever you call that flowing
as compassionately downstream
as time flows
water-powered energy
from up to down

As Earth-born nutritional delivery systems
root down to up sunlight,
as air-born nutrients
burn daily East to West,
when facing the river bed’s Northern Source,
also Right to Left
North in winter’s frozen discontent,
South in summer’s midstream swelling climax.

Revolutionary Para-Dime Differences

A difference between compassion and sympathy,

between co-empathic passion
and unilateral YangPatriarchal-empathic,
ego-empowering intent,

Compassion matures passion FOR
to shared passion WITH.

This same emergent fluidity
cannot be said of sympathy
for suffering of Other,
who remains another dissociated Other

Exempted from democratic inclusion
in further considerations
of constitutionally appropriate applications
of Golden Rules
to those who remain
in darker xenophobic shadows
more appropriate for retributive reaction
than restoration to peaceful justice response.

This same contrast and compare
may also apply to political empowerment
and more of the same
competitive economic investment,

to global enlightenment
and more localized, and often nationalized, pockets
of self-enrichment,

to recreative cooperative love
and to recreational competitive lust

Now that some of us
revolutionaries and evangelists
of the ecological 1960s
have been given this great green gift
of old age wisdom,
what on Earth
shall we choose to do with
such awesomely sacred/secular
private/public sectoral nonpartisan
