Gadflies and HoneyBees

Where to begin
in the middle of cold and dark
winter’s solstice,
healthy green life’s time
of impeachment,
excommunication,
dormancy?

Where does this all rightfully
and left sacredly end?

These are expansive gadfly questions,
problems,
issues of complexly dipolar reason,
leftbrain dominant
either-or thinking
we are either thinking or feeling
rather than conscious of both,
and neither sufficient
without the necessary other.

Light
and passion
win competitive evolutions
only to lose cooperative revolutionary
awareness,
dipolar and co-arising,
bipolar and co-exhaling.

We dissociate cognitive reason
from rightbrain’s more original intuitive-sourced feelings.

Unitarian-Universalists,
like balanced Taoists,
advocate our 7th Principle
about interdependent
intersectional
co-passioning webs
of non-violent life communing love,
passion,
cooperative empowerment,
bicameral egopatriarchal/ecofeminist
yang-yintegrity
spatial-temporal
NonZero-Sum Win/Win contextual
counter-capitalism multicultural,
bilateral
WinLeft’s liberal egolove
to WinRight’s healthiest conservational ecolife.

So, let’s not continue
beginning with a full-spectral blue
and red
and ultra-violet synergy,
but confine our response
to questions not yet leftbrain asked

And notice, instead, dark and light green,
in-between sunny courage yellow
and curious and long-hidden orange,

Merging and emerging
what comes after RightWing Red depressions
of Earth’s healthiest well-being values.

If Earth’s children are, sometimes
not-straight
not-white
not-male,
not particularly egocentric,
not especially competitive,
more artistic and wounded, perhaps,

And not necessarily human,
maybe a chick,
or a colt,
a cub,
pup,
kitten,
calf,
a matriarchal egg, etc.

And,
you are a Wise EcoFeminist Elder,
an organic gardener
looking out for your healthy flock,
your child with disabilities,
your own chronic climate anxiety of win/lose stress,
expecting Aspergerish cooperative co-arising warm compassion
in-between memories of win/lose competitions
and images of future win/win cooperative democratic empowerment
through co-invested polypathic communication,
polynomial relationship,
polyphonic compassion.

You probably would think/feel yourself merely reponsible
for protecting your co-empathic young
from white predative nationalist hate,
from self-unfulfilling prophets of egalitarian apartheid
without hope of interdependent healthy regenerativity,

You would probably want to be reassured that:

1. Your young adult understands what s/he will be hearing
is driven by leftbrain competitive
either/or
emotionally dissociated
deductive/reductive dominating
egocentric
monocultural identity,
semi-consciousness,
at best, no more elitist right
than non-elitist wrong.

2. The right to free and responsible speech
(U-U Principle Four)
has a reverse corollary,
usually unconsciously assumed

S/he has the freedom not to listen
to unfree
dissociated
potentially toxic
one-sided presentations
and leftbrain lopsided verbal debates
with straw ecofeminist
green
cooperative social investors,
voters,
residents,
indigenous citizens of sacred MotherEarth
before denizens of any nation-identified State,
or supremacist Tribe.

3. I would not think/feel
I am “coddling” my adolescent dependents,
whether human in formation
or a yearling pony,
by inviting them to anticipate discussion
with win/win non-violent intent,

That we are good
and natural
and healthy
and democratic
to assume restorative green resilience
of all ecosystems
and all subclimates,
whether internal or external,
whether yin or yang,
whether unitarian or universal,
whether ecofeminist or egopatriarchal,
whether sacred Left interdependent ecosystemic
or secular Right egocentric capitalists,

Dialogue is always a healthier choice
for a wise green energy democracy
then violent
overly competitive debates,
with zero-sum win/lose relational/nutritional assumptions

As if win/lose capitalism makes democratic nurturing sense
despite win/win empowering green
original sacred-mind and secular-body
bilateral revolutionary intent,

Where rational regenerative history
greets intuitive resonant mystery
with deep green learning respect.

4. And we are not really ‘coddling’
to rationally expect non-violent discussion
begins with compassionate win/win listening
for points of cooperative agreement,

Usually more significant
than win/lose points of runaway disagreement,
regardless of cultural color appreciation
or species gratitude,
or the healthier humor of leftbrain egopatriarchal dominance
passionate about cooperative rightbrain ecofeminist prominence.

Reason-rooted StraightWhiteMale gadflies
sometimes have trouble hearing
and appreciating the interdependent power
of 7th interdependent identity principles
in balance with
1st co-relational
co-passionate dignity principles

Of egalitarian freedoms to speak
and interdependent responsibilities
to listen for win/lose issues
to discern win/win cooperative resolutions.

Gadflies may tolerate
dissonant monoculturing fascist risks,
rather than resonantly co-responding
with confluent
polyculturing
interdependent opportunities,
which are more of a honey bee
kind of humming green consciousness,
both wealthy mind-thought
and healthy body-felt.

Pursuing Democratic Health

Democratic pursuits of healthy constitutions
and health policy discipline
are often associated with growing compassion,
enlightenment values
for well-being and happiness,

And peace and happiness, in turn,
associated with prosperity, both natural and spiritual wealth,
never one without the other.

This historical association includes integral global prosperity
hoped for during the Great Enlightenment
climaxing during the 1700s
as our democratic spirited
and natured USA was busy being born.

Health, like wealth,
can be measured in quantities compared across time,
sometimes trending bigger and more robust
and sometimes sadly smaller and more stagnant,

But, health, as wealth, also feels warm flowing
in effluent rivers and root nutritional systemic qualities
of multilateral WinWin positive compassion,
tossed back and forth in everyday discourse,
through LoseLose negative ego-mania
echoing cognitive silos of dissonance.

Personal health, like wealth,
prosperity of happiness and warm nests,
can be thought about as short-term
sufficiency for each moment composing one lifetime,

Or more long-term confluence,
multi-regenerational,
mother’s warm womb to daughter to grandmother’s womb,
back and forth through time
remembered and projected healthy wealth
into our co-passioned nutritional future.

Global democratic health,
like self-governing compassionate wealth,
can be measured in cooperative quantities of lifespans
and consumer market potential
compared to productive efficiency
measured against cost of labor
and materials
and energy consumed/produced,
and pollution
and waste,
compared against Win/Lose inefficient competitions
and Lose/Lose energy resources
of ecological/economic global failure,
and waste,
and contrasted to Win/Win co-investing compassion trends.

Earth’s health, like wealth,
can become more synergetically understood
as qualities of multicultural integrity,
flow,
growing robustly effluent,
affluent nutritional depth, width,
buoyancy, multicultural beauty
speaking polypathic truth to monocultural predation,
degradation from Paradise potential
degenerating to WeedPatch mendacity,
hypocrisy,
lunacy,
rabidity
of narcissistic fear-mongering
twittering
while treating Earth as though a personal AntiGolden Ruled Toilet,
garbage disposal

A rabid rat’s nest
rewriting Golden HealthRule democratic constitutions
to best serve northern
and western white patriarchal monoculturing degenerators
of military industrialized hate and threat commodity climates
growing personally
and politically
and economically
and socially unhealthy
and psychologically unwealthy
and way anti-democratic unwise,

Anti-healthy wealth of white male privilege
dispassionately apathetic toward healthy quantities
and wealthy matriarchal flowing qualities.

Christmas Political Correctness

It’s almost Christmas
when the news caster abouter announces
a precipitous new trend in the U.S.

Now, more tired and climate stressed citizens
are against non-violent Political Correctness
than for political and economic government business
as contentiously nationalistic
and ineffectively partisan usual.

I wonder what the first Christmas would have looked like
if God the Loving Father
had been more Politically Correct
and sent His only beloved ChristChild
into the palace of Caesar Augustus

Who might have celebrated with a proclamation:
“All residents must register,
whether natural born citizens or not,
back in your original place of birth
so you can pay more taxes
to support more soldiers
to make more empire-building weapons
to protect my royal monocultural Reign,
soon to be overpoweringly extended
by God’s great patriarchal meritocracy reward,
Jesus Caesar, free of cooperative Politically Correct weaknesses,
Prince of RomanWar.”

Instead,
birthing Jesus in a shepherd’s barn
to parents temporarily homeless and displaced
by greedy war-mongering machinations
of Caesar Augustus…
Was that effective Politically Correct choice
or not?

Are you an evangelistic Christian
for growing rebirth into non-violent peace communication,
healthy relationships with all God’s EarthTribes,
advocating cooperatively owned and managed wealth and happiness
and resiliently nutritional and nurturing prosperity?

Internally effective prosperity,
mutual friendships
reflecting external natural and spiritual climate health care.

Or,
did God your Loving PolyCultural Father
intervene in history with Political Incorrectness
from your more humble Christmas manger view?

Among homeless immigrants,
animals,
straw,
stars,
angels,
nationalistic violent intent
to unbirth a suffering servant of non-violent Peace,
teaching theological and political points
of healthy effective internal
with environmental co-governance,
natural/spiritual Correctness.

Peaceful Christmas to Healthy All
multinational residents,
whether Politically Correct citizens of Rome
or Washington
or Mecca
or Bethlehem
reborn through this our non-violent co-passionate messiah vocation

To follow Christ born in a temporary shelter
and in ambiguous paternity circumstances,
surrounded by stars and angels
and by threat of Politically Violent Incorrectness.

May we all become reborn in climates of non-violent health,
reborn in multiculturing friendship,
reborn in compassionate Politically Correct peaceful wealth,
and sufficient clean water
and air
and soil prosperity
for God the Father’s Kingdom
at healthyLeft with wealthyRight hand,
Yang with Yin,
Nature with Spirit effective sojourner feet and minds
and Peace-commissioned bodies,

Reborn PC non-violent self-with-other
co-governing strong intent and flow-practicing
historic scripture-rooted, seeded
Multiculturing healthy Life,
Compassioning Truth,
Loving integral WuWei.

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.

Thanksgiving for Independence Days

Among PermaCulture Designers,
planners and cooperative schemers,
choreographers and mappers,
therapeutic lyricists and historical poets,
and probably comedians,
there is a saying,
a principle of experiential truth:
For every healthy function
we discover many nutritional elements.

This has to do with commitment,
most resonantly shared with GaiaEarth,
to invest in polycultural multi-enculturing functions
to disinvest away from monoculturing
monopolistic pathologies of hubris,
a human environment supremely out of balance
with humane cooperative intent.

An important cultural health function in the U.S.,
as in other enriching societies,
is celebration.

Celebration is a health function
with many memorial and traditional elements.

Two of these celebrations
are in creative tension within U.S. cultural revolutions:
Thanksgiving Day and Independence Day.

Thanksgiving is healthy
and draws on elements of gratitude
grace
Earth and life as sacred ecological relationship,
as our shared evolutionary history
rooted in cooperative nurturing elements.

Independence,
like liberty and freedom,
is also healthy
and draws on elements of revolution,
too easily violent and emphatic disagreements
about redistribution of power and wealth
from royalist plutocratic homes
to mutually cooperative democratic co-investment networks
thankful for this new opportunity
to grow both Thanksgiving cooperation
and often-competitive WinLose crises
on thresholds of new-found Independence Days,
not possible to resolve
without dominance of interdependent Thanksgiving WinWin celebration,
memorials of Earth’s bounty
inviting humane benign parasites of Independence
from Earth’s other native elements,
back into more grateful abundance
through interdependent health functions
of more polyculturally empowering Thanksgiving.

Gratitude warmly embraces growing less defensively reactionary
about our grown-too-nationalistic and egotistic elitist
Independence Days.

To optimize health functions of Thanksgiving
and Independence,
Earth invites us to remember how ecosystems
create these two co-arising intentions together,
as root systems of multiculturing grace
interdependently flower mutually-held and celebrating
Independence Days
with ecopolitics cooperatively-owned and self-governed
liberty for all
capable of reweaving
Earth’s WinWin Thanksgiving Day supremacy
of healthy democracy for maintaining cooperative ecology
rather than over feeding wealth-hoarding plutocracy,
wherein every day is entitled to Christmas gifts
without the gratitude of a healthy Thanksgiving child.

While it is possible to celebrate Independence Day
each in our own King George throne room
and firing-up our own gated backyard grills
of me-first red meat,
Thanksgiving Day more patriotically invites
a table large enough
for all us native creolizing waves of immigrants
to give thanks for all Earth’s healthy gifts
brought together by these
grace-filling
nutritional polyculturing elements.

YangWin-YinWin Economics

She started our discussion of EgoWin-EcoLogicalWin
Eastern NonDual CoArising PoliticalEconomic Theory,
by reminding us that Deductive LeftBrain
has not always been WinLose competitive dominant;
there was a prior emerging moment in prehistory,
more of a herstory,
when WinWin cooperative EgoYang and EcoYin
were both LeftDeductive and RightInductive co-dominant,
when WinWin cooperation
knew life as happy and healthy and robustly bilaterally self-regenerative
and too often interrupted by competitive flee and fly and fight
Business As Unusually Oppositionally Defiant,
calling for active antipathy for physical survival
but normally WinWin cooperatively normed co-empathic trust
for nature/sacred-nurture health and wellbeing thrival.

But,
just as we were about to fall into another revolving trance,
she unexpectedly went off script:

So, here’s one of my growing climatic number of collective stupidities
that really pisses me off.
She said, but strangely without exclamation,
as if too nearly exhausted
to expend-expand further scarce positive purifying,
yet also creolizing, multiculturing, polypathing,
energy.

Here in this DisUniting,
formerly bicamerally functional, States,
we not only invest good taxpayer money and time
in Uniting Earth’s Nations and Species
for multiculturing Health and Climate WellBeing,
but we ironically host this WinWin ecopolitical hive of cooperative activity,
of positive polypathic becoming,
in the very heart of our Walled Street
financial industrial military invest in WinLose
rabidly-competitive
Anti-WellBeing Constitutional,
every royal-elitist WhiteBread Man for Himself
Empty (0) nihiistic secular UnderSoul
of PreMillennial Survivalist Evolutionary WinLose Pathology.

While, at the very moment in Earth’s climate-therapeutic history
we need to cooperate and groom and feed and nurture
these Uniting Nations and Species
of and for ReGenerative Health,
we elect that goddamned AntiChristian
patriarchal elitist LeftBrain denialist of RightBrain ecological feelings
for health and safety through DNA-RNA solidarity roots,
ecosystemic healthy nature LeftBrain-Win
making agapic nice with wealth nurture RightBrain-EcoWin,
whose only investment in the United Nations
is disinvestment from Global Health and WellBeing!

Now She was getting prerevolutionarily stirred up.

What the Hell kind of tragic-comedy is this
for Earth’s vast stage of emerging humane-democratic
multiculturing polypathic health history?

Why would our collective WinWin intelligence
toward optimizing Health and WellBeing Outcomes
settle for OldSchool WinLose survivalist competitor throwbacks
when we know their governance outcomes will always
ecologically and economically
and politically and socially
and psychologically suboptimize,
will incur risk more than health/wellbeing opportunity,
when WinWin ecopolitics optimizes healthwealth development
over degenerative risk of less future generations
to continue cooperating United Nations and Species?

We began nervously looking around our discussion circle,
avoiding Her too regenerative exclamatory direction,
hoping this was a merely rhetorical question,
some argument She was struggling with
within Her Ego/EcoSelves,
while we continued feeling like prey
who only knew how to co-arisingly pray.

In the brief ensuing silence
no one seemed surprised
when He twittered back,
You’re just a sore and sour WinWin Loser,
like YangMe.

Together we induced back,
We stand apart
Yang struggling against Yin
for all that is UnHoly and Ego/Eco Systemic Loss.

He had the last LeftBrain word,
but we still have our WinLeft-WinRight
alpha through omega cooperative-empathic feelings.

We have created Him
to regenerate WinWin HisElite-HerNonElite Uniting Nations
and CoOperative CoOwnership CoMentoring
Health and WellBeing Species.

He twittered back
i’m still not feeling you,
or even capable of hearing us as one extending resilient family
for Health and CoOperative WellBeing.

That seemed rather long
for a WinLose twitter.

Biological Enlightenment

First off,
this is not pick on George Lakoff day
because I love his Political Mind like a brother.

BUT,
yes,
you knew that was coming,
so let me change it right now

AND,
yes, much of the proletariat-patriarchal Enlightenment Era
of the 1700s was weighted toward Transcendence,
so, yes, a tendency toward disembodied,

AND YET,
if we look toward the more bourgeois-matriarchal sector,
especially all those disenfranchised women birthin’ babies,
but also other disadvantaged perspectives of Enlightenment,
these were very much about natural, healthy regenerative richness,
perhaps erotic wonder and climatic awe,
rather than some spiritual experience
more high-brow agapic,
yet no less,
perhaps even rather more,
integrative flow-abundant
embodied
co-mentored and empathically communicated
reverent and sacred enlightenment,
however democratically common
as our universal experience
of diastatic enlightenment
nurtured within a matriarchal integrative womb
rather than embryonically formed
from a patriarchal transcendent penis.

I don’t think red-neck conservative Republicans
are any less interested in,
or committed to,
or capable of,
healthy enlightening polypathic experience
than are progressive Ivy League academic Democrats,
although I do think that those who have healthier nurtured
integrative communication between LeftYang and RightYin hemispheres
are better at finding the WinWin cooperatively enlightening opportunities
while avoiding unnecessary disembodied pitfalls of WinLose choices
suboptimizing regenerative potential
to experience more positive enlightenment-flow power
rather than more cognitive-affective dissonance,
mistrusting antipathies.

These tend to be those
for whom LeftBrain enculturation dominance,
supremacy,
has been less kind than RightBrain’s matriarchal nurturance.
