Dear Sue

Dear Sue,

I am remembering our strong negative responses
to the young woman who surreptitiously read
her aunt’s very private diary,
filled with vulnerable statements
of the most intimate nature
and transparently lusty spirit,

Yet, though secretive,
then took a bold black marker
and wrote vulgar, poisonous words
on most every previously locked and hidden page,

And yet, even here
she used her own judgmental inside voices
but wrote in her younger innocent brother’s hand.

We both found her choices highly distressing;
difficult to even read, imagine
squeamish to hear from a young niece perpetrator
or an old aunt victim.

I wonder if this is because we can empathize with both
the obstreperous and egocentric young, disturbed
with adult hidden and disruptively vulnerable agendas,
rebellions,
sometimes hedonistic
sometimes narcissistic,
usually both, back and forth
like yang then yin,
patriarchal power lust, then matriarchal depression
in response to chronic economic and political repression.

Do these actions,
intimate hidden self-disclosures
followed by a too yangishly adolescent monoculture’s mocking inspiration,
venomous uncaring,
toxically rapacious expressions,
aggressive actions and word choices,
with fully uncensored malicious intent,
speak to deep listening
yet camouflaged through deflection,
distraction,
political sleight of hand,
giving off responsibility to some,
most any, Other
our own wounded skeletons of silent memory?

Powers brought to a very exclusive co-arising table of one,
acting as a duplicitous two,
bipolar in passive-aggressive
depressive-manic responses
to surprising disclosures
of older, respected, staid hidden agendas
written by those we have truly loved
and hoped to continue loving
without remainder, reserve,
without this unexpected erupting hidden agenda
to protect ourselves from what feels creepy
too manic or paranoid,
smelling of hidden conspiracies
to express attraction
in ways deviant from our own proper expectations
for our own,
and Other’s, therapeutic integral behavior.

I thought of that wicked niece,
and our responses to her perfidy,
after a dream last night
in which Donald Trump
was writing curse words
with a bold black marker
in his dominant RightWing hand
all over his concrete wall

And then all over the original Jeffersonian Declaration
of Interdependence
away from white narcissistic,
patriarchal,
unenlightened royal privilege

And then Sorcerer’s Apprentice Trump
ruthlessly
blackly wrote dirty jingoisms on,
stabbing at,
our original Adams and Jeffersonian
compromised democratic constitution

Written with compassionate radical trust intention
trying to declare all creatures,
slave and free,
enlightened plants and planet,
equal in everyday enchanting dignity,
assuming great prosperity benefits of polycultural cooperative economies
internationally fertile,
valid,
effective for well-being
of all the people,
plants,
planet,

Still to this Trumpian day falling politically short,
still awaiting fulfillment
by those who can read and write more skillfully,
non-violently
less passive-aggressively,
less conspiratorially
less toxically enraged by WinLose multicultural losses
across the pages of our transparently democratic
yet divine
intent.

Anyway,
it seems we recognize this aversion to hidden narcissism
through empathy, cooperatively empassioned
in each other as a polypathic strength
strongly shared.

Thank you for speaking in solidarity
for a healthier, effluent ecofeminist affluent flow power
as we read across the pages of our own hopeful history books,

Still holding old school faith
found in each other’s passioned eyes and ears
and relentless spiritual-natural senses
of positive and negative and double-negative humors,
tumors benign and cancerous
rumors of magical queendoms
at our open liberal loving left hand,

Where agendas may be hidden
but not from shame or blame weapons
so much as reserved for our own tool-shaping pleasure
to disclose when and as we choose
and as our gifts for compassionate co-empathy
are most multiculturally needed,
exercised,
stretched toward optimally resonant
resilience for all people,
young nieces and old aunts certainly included,
and MotherTrees
and humbler passioned plants
and MotherLanded planet.

Through Thick and Thin

I think it might be John Rawls
who writes about
thick and thin justice sandwiches.

Thick justice
may be more deeply embedded, richly spread
in regenerative pursuing time,
producing and serving healthy wealth relationships,
often digestively motivated
to achieve nutritional communion goals,

While thinner justice
lies closer to today’s contemporary bread
of legalistic compliance issues,
what minimally defines a reductive
democratic
barely legal sandwich,

Avoiding lusts and greedy aggression of privileged political evangelists
yet lacking robust internal absorption
of richer ethical behavior,
proper interdependent moral discipline
rooted in normative co-operativity
and not impatient competitions for more sectarian power
for, and marketed by,
those who already have too much well-fed apartness authority
to retributively enforce laws
against consumers of too much thin privatized poverty
to serve the already privileged evangelists first and better,

Too thin justice not even intended to be fair
to those who have inferior capital wealth
and are legally treated as if we are also least
among emotional intelligence.

As a gay male child
of the 50s and 60s
in white privileged North America,
I know something about this apartheid
of power and authority to choose
between popular wealthy disciplines
of punishing deviance laws
as thinly contrasted against robust ethical discernment
of multiculturally embedded deep and wide and thick inclusive listening,
polypathic learning through Left deductive legal
and Right inductive moral
co-intelligence

Restoring communication bridges between thinning out procedures,
policies
propriety,
and deeper, thicker, more robust ethical justice
informed by a positively compassionate psychology
encouraging us to follow our nutritional bilateral Light,

A thick polypathic Light
for some thin from-above theistic, producing sacred v secular apartness,
for others a-theistic, polyculturing internal communion,
for a few, Tipping Pointed toward narrow truth-ways
of polyphonic ringing Words
producing EarthJustice Rights,

Some fertile combination of these severed two
thin through thick sandwiches,
spiritual-theological intent
and natural-ecological means,
like organic peanut butter liberally spread
with unsweetened red raspberry conservations,
communing toward resilient
restorative
thickly thought and felt justice intelligence.

Which precludes confusing undisciplined narcissistic injustice
with legal democratic constitutional practices
preserving communal peace-mongering truth processes
economic and political,
ecological and theologically mutual correcting intelligence
reaching back to earliest nutritional seeds
of robust digestive discernment resources
for distinguishing impoverishing thin threats
from robust wellness opportunities
for better
richer
communal sandwiches,

Healthier servings of LeftEmbodied legal disciplines
avoiding seeds and roots of violent apartheid hoarding
and sectarian privileged intelligence intent,

Instead, making love with RightMind deep digested
polypathic intelligence
polynomially deep listening
for legal/moral learning
impatient Yang’s autonomous conservative tendencies
to overpower matriarchal cooperative thick communion
feeding Yin’s more robust nutritional compassion.

These two binomial appositionals,
justice thin and not injustice thick
co-arise discovered bridges
between what is communion healthy sufficient justice
and what are wealthy WinWin Right emotional intelligence
to non-violently do,
to peacefully say,
to justly become,
to cooperatively be,
to restore just climate non-apartheid health resources
internally buttered
and externally breaded.

To follow LeftBody visual dominant Ways
is also to listen for RightMind discerning recessed voices
remembering optimal WinWin nutritional past events,
experiences as deep and wide sandwiched
as polypathic DNA just intelligence,
spreading strings of nurturing
warm wet wombed
non-visually felt SpaceTime,
Here with Now just co-passioned right.

Breathing compassionate nutrition in,
blowing nurturing discernment co-operatively out and up
Regeneratively rich feedback loops as old as wombs
and fertile MotherTrees
with leaves
and nurture-discerning root systemic
just-us trust
left with just right crust,
not too thin or thick
for universal uniting communion.

ReWeaving Walls Into Webs

We each have this fundamental choice
to know our mistakes as a relentless wall
oozing passions of superior severance
prohibiting successful futures
more like choosing compassions together

Or,
to rediscover past mistakes
as an uncovering web
toward a more cooperative future
less shaken apart,
less stone-walled by Win/Lose competitors,
more inviting,
even enchantedly compassionate,
regathering health toward integrity’s networking wealth.

Resilient discernment
unveils
Resonant, not at all dispassionate, co-discovery

Empty,
yet pregnant,
enthymematic promising integrity
of each internal/external moment’s Zen ZeroZone potential,
co-operatively LeftYang,
co-passionately RightYin,
Tao of bilateral spacetime
becoming ego/eco-resilient health webs
without prohibitive pathological walls.

CoOperating Ways and Means

Educational Competitions:
“You/We are not motivated to learn
how to take care of yourself/ourselves.”

And,
We are, together, motivated to learn
how to give and receive
personal and social,
political and economic,
theological and ecological health care,
universally intended,
unitarian motivated and discerned.

Competition for resources:
“We can’t change because we are too poor,
have too little health to thrive,
too few nutritional, nurturing resources.”

And,
Together, with explicit therapeutic intent,
we are change,
we are healthy resources
sufficient for this day,
healing processors for this
and each experienced co-operating
co-arising moment.

Universally commodified competition:
“One size fits all, no exceptions.”

And,
Our cooperative health intent and size
flexes to fit our potential therapeutic scale
of authoritative just operations
today,
universally right now.

Competition for power/authority:
“Our aggressive legalistic
and capital-commodified system
is too big to fail,
or even change directions.”

And,
Our eco/theo-logical systems
are just ripe enough opportunity
for WinWin co-operative
healthy
co-passionate
empowering networks
evolving polypathic paradigms
to never stop regeneratively changing,
evolving,
pre-volving,
un-volving,
revolving co-passion,
co-arising gravitation.

Competition for health, resilience, resonance:
“Neglect of health care can’t be fixed.”

And,
Health care can become unfixed and holistic
but best when co-operatively engaged,
discovered through receiving optimal authoritative co-investment
in responsible
proper
proportional
authentic
transparent
vulnerable
therapeutic
polypathic
polyphonic
polynomial optimally wealthy climate care,

Internal and external,
yin flow with yang strength,
matriarchal with patriarchal,
compassionately resonant discernment
with co-operative resilient discipline.

Wealthy unitarian ways
toward healthy universal means.

Resilient Engagement

There is an important difference
between being accessible
and becoming more engaging,
engaged,
engage-able.

To access support and resources
for health care giving
and wealth care resourceful receiving
is not nutritionally sufficient to resiliently
resonantly engage

As non-violent access
to absence of rage
is not peace enough to fully engage

So too,
access to eternal love,
timeless truths,
polypathic wise ways
and polynomially balancing bilateral means
do not, for most of us,
fully engage with Earth’s cooperative interior voices
speaking and listening,
widening and deepening,
outing and in-ing,
outside and inside
Yang and Yin
ego and eco-sourcing
resourcing
pre-sourcing
un-sourcing
anti-sourcing
revolutionary engagement
evolutionary source enabling
health-wealth access
with every day
every body
every thing
every relationship
multi-dependently embracing.

Access to bicameral deductive thought
and inductive feelings of interdependent resourcefulness
and isolating despair,
as outlined by ethologist Julian Jaynes,
and all textures and hues and cries between
Mother’s warm wet womb
and YangHere with YinNow

Is not resiliently sufficient
to resonantly engage bilaterally resilient co-investments,
as taught by Edward De Bono.

Just as access to a lover
is not necessarily sufficient
to fully engage those thoughts and feelings yet unknown,
undisclosed
for lack of trust
we will be GoldenRule treated
by healthy wealth of compassioning WinWin care,

Aware
of interdependent relational space,
accessible to sight,
but also inter-related time,
engaged through deep listening
networks of interdependent historical and cultural causes
evolving toward this engaging ego with eco-effect
for healing and toxic causes yet to follow
through future inaccessible regenerations

We actively hope will be at least as health engaged
as is true
and trusted
with and for
and of Earth’s interdependent inevitable moments,
YangHere further accessing
YinFlow past through future
engaging Now

Ego EcoSourcing,
CoPassions multi-laterally Here,
personal space ecopolitically engaging
relentless health care time.

EarthBalloon Economics

WinWin Balloon EcoPolitics
for growing community health,
said the EarthBalloon economist,
is most effectively improved
by focusing on the bottom
of Earth’s sacred communal balloon,
accepting shared responsibility
for those stuck in ground floor economies
of chronic survival issues,
perpetually repeating despairing depressed circles,

Rather than ignoring root communal problems
to focus on further elevating
the top tier of this our communal balloon,
with counter-historical faith
in trickle-down eco-power distribution theories
of Win or Lose evolution.

Imagine a balloon stuck to a revolutionary universal floor
with wild crazy glue,
prohibiting change in altitude
and positive evolving attitude.

As we pull from the top, hoping to increase freedom,
the bottom front-line becomes most immediately stressed
to survive this more acute chronic health threat
to the whole balloon system.

In between,
our communal balloon stretches out,
so our middling classes become thinner
and the distance between the top privileged one-percent tier,
within our opulent embrace,
and our stuck, comparatively neglected, bottom bitters
grows as we continue with Win/Lose business as usual
competition with invisible Winner Takes All glue,
holding on to dysfunctional threats
against our communal balloon’s healthy
holistically elastic
dynamic
interdependently co-related
co-passioning systemic structure.

However,
if we Win/Win absorb Win/Lose gaming glue
enough to loosen it’s autonomous defensive grip
we can lift our recovering chronically stressed bottom
of this healthier climate balloon.

As bottom outlyers of our communion life
increasingly harmonize voices,
we bring along all our EarthBalloon’s residents

Slowly growing resilient health outcomes
from the most stressed bottom
of our ecopolitical global communion
until more circular overall balance
between outside and inside climate pressures
optimize health buoyancy of our entire
now lifting,
more light-hearted,
balloon communion.

Systemic communal health care decreases
as we competitively continue to focus on narcissistic hopes
of our too wealth hoarding
too freely Win/Lose privileged elite.

Instead,
elevating improvements change communal elastic health-wealth systems
filling out better balanced,
securely mature,
conserved by liberally lifting love intent
with those chronically struggling
for natural/spiritual climate survival
at the bottom of our ecopolitical
robustly elastic
health-empowering
EarthBalloon.

Green Sanctuary Resilience

Earth’s multi-tribal sanctuary,
like any flexible multi-generational home,
like elastically resilient residents
of a nineteenth century
three-family brownstone,
or a centennial extended family farm,
positively grows gratitude
for HereNow integrity
of further co-operative covenanted potential ways
and means to restore Paradise peace intent
for all future healthy EarthTribe residents,
internally transposing self-awareness
as GreenSanctuaried regenerators

Producing more buoyantly democratic covenanted hope to thrive
with LeftBrain non-violent synergy
preferring RightBrain peace-filled, gracious EcoSanctuary.

Internal long-term happiness covenants,
like interior heart climates,
like healthy New Year internalized resolutions,
grow resilient enough to last a year,
or even a co-operative lifetime,
as flexibly needed flow-therapy

Back and forth in Time’s sacred sanctuary of memory
releasing aggressive Win/Lose historical intentions
in favor of ElderRight internal synergy sanctuary
with YoungerLeft’s externalizing everyday integrity,

Together wealthing healthy short-term Wins, contractually agreed
yet also intending to long-term Win global healthy sanctuary
with and for all
organically compliant green covenanted residents past
present
and future
happily divesting away from violent intent and communication
sometimes more silently felt
than exposed as a future need for empowering resilient peace
without over/under-building boundaries.

Universal GoldenRule covenants,
internalized through global DNA expressing balanced health
within Unitarian EcoGreen Sanctuaries
of resilient multi-generational robust wealth,
YangLeft multiculturally active co-operation
within YinRight WiseElder’s sacred holistic preoccupations
grow most mutually hospitable
as an organically bicameral,
intentional GreenSanctuary.
