Ecological Conversion

“…the ecological crisis is also a summons
to profound [theological] conversion.”
#217, Laudato Si’, Pope Francis

Those who benefit from a StraightWhiteMale privileged,
LeftBrain dominant,
Patriarchal-Capitalist
monotheistic image for God’s anthrosupremacist omnipotence,

May have trouble recognizing
that UnStraight,
UnWhite,
unprivileged ecopolitical victims
try to thrive with win/win Left/Right bicameral intelligence
despite chronic trauma histories
of Patriarchal-Capitalism

Still stubbornly believing in our PolyCultural-Communion
CommonGood
to experience health-wealthy faith,

Trust in our panentheistic
and intersectionally integral benefits,
kindly compassionate relationships
ego-internal/eco-external political,
empowering and enlightening co-empathic experience
of sacred Earth’s restoration
through healthy democratic integrity
of internal local culture and external global climate,
democratic trust and integrally universal beauty

Intersectionally just,
balanced north/south
west/east
ego/eco-therapeutic win/win
blue above and green below
seen from above with full-spectral resonant potential,
organic ego-internal theology of conversion
feeding and fed by
eco-external logical relationships of positively trusted
felt beauty,

Secular or sacred segregation
causing LeftBrain dominant traumatic dissonance;
integral sacred/secular RightBrain interdependent
CommonGood Trust

Kind compassioning
inter-religious
intersectional
polypathic/polymathic
polynomially/polyvagally balanced
NonZero Zone 1/0 double-binary

Positive psycho-ecopolitical trust
Win/Win strategy
is way healthier
and graceful
than Lose/Lose nihilism
of blind faith that patriarchal capitalism
wounds
predict active hope that polycultural communion
invites trusted sacred beauty
of health-wealthy win/win peace,

Past through future best cooperative
ecological/theological
nature/spirit indigenous trust practice
for healthy/wealthy beauty
synergy
integrity

For those who benefit with,
but not under,
healthy straight white males
with left/right bicamerally abundant wealth
as safe health prosperity,
protection

Deeply resonant listening
and widely resilient speaking
through multicultural
nonviolent communicating
anthro-trusted
Earth beautiful regenerations.

Critical Race Theory

My problem with Critical Race Theory is that, unfortunately, systemic racism is not theoretical; it is experiential, behavioral, measured, and quantified.

Calling systemic racism a “theory” is a disparaging and dishonest strategy because racist event and patterns of relationship and non-relationship are not merely theory; nor is systemic racism rationally reduced to an as yet unproven explanation for historical events. Neither critical nor chronic caste-specific prejudice, nor marginalized v elite power analysis are merely theoretical, contingent, not yet fully vetted hypotheses awaiting confirmation, or lack thereof. Scientific method has been multiculturally applied to caste-based economic and political non-elite v elite experiential data.

Analysis of experience is not theory. Race differential analysis may be premised on a positive and/or negative hypothesis about discriminatory effect, bias, prejudice, caste alliance, multicultural health, and/or monocultural pathology, scarcity or abundance of positive v negative relationships, differential measures of trust, empowering and/or disempowering intent, but none of these hypothetical predictions about measurable relationships remains abstractly theoretical; removed from quantified experience.

Critically analyzed hypotheses may come from deeply interconnected or special case theoretical roots. Systemic racism has emerged from economic and political caste hierarchical systemic relationships statistically significant. Profound differential power and investment opportunities have been unequivocally established. Cooperative and/or competitive power predictions reflect multicultural cooperative thick and competitive thin investment relationships.

To believe that racist attitudes are merely personal prejudice, not responsive to deep and widely learned social systemic constructs, is equivalent to believing that all cultural perceptions remain free of historical sensory-neural experience. All observations, consciousness, analyses, theories, experiences, hypotheses rely on an integrated empowering neuro-sensory organic SYSTEM.

A shared language system is rooted in a deeper and wider communication system. Communication is biased toward positive as multiculturally robust health. Negative communication is to active distrust as absence of communication is neurologically associated with mistrust outside one’s own monocultural received view. Trust issues are neuro-sensory systemically understood as pathological; not positively healthy.

Critical race dialogue requires a nonviolent communication system characterized by compassion, in order to become more resonant across caste-based dissociation, blocking resonant relationships that could, at least theoretically, transcend past deeply held distrust and mistrust of systems supporting patriarchalism, capitalism, and racism.

Breaking Through Nationalism

Yuval Noah Harari
suggests that Nationalism’s
Big Three Nemeses are fear of
nuclear holocaust,
degenerative climate trends,
and Business As Usual disruptions
of eco-political technology.

When I first read this list
of his global Three,
the one that stood out
at least for me,
to potentially
break through our tendency
to see through lenses
nationalistically
is Earth’s great climate pathology.

Still,
all three are LeftBrain dominant,
StraightWhiteMale privileged,
Patriarchal-Capitalist nationalistic systems
of scientific deductive-rooted secularism
and defensive
extractive-infested
militarism.

Aside from a home habitat
in WholeEarth Crisis,
extinguishing all hope
of future health
is our cooperative multicultural wealth
regenerations,
our ability to distinguish
which of these three
is most transparently
exploitive and disempowering
our SunShine EcoSystem,

To dialogically determine
which is most polyculturally vulnerable
to inflaming
already repressive Patriarchal/Capitalism,

Which is most unenlightened
and monotheistically RightWing
StraightWhiteMale
LeftBrain dominant

May also be the unholy Fascist fascinated
demonizing ecowomanist healthy choice
and Earth as sacred Goddess
panentheistically denying,
Holy Nature/Spirit indigenous defying,
climatically degenerative Nationalism, yes,
but also, more fundamentally dualistic,
AnthroSupremacism
over ecofeminist healthy wealth
of fertile sacred Earth

Where monoculturing climate “change”
may become most easily defined
by Yanged out RightWing predation
fueled by a competitive economy
of hierarchical
from-above scarcity,
rather than from-within
ecological integrity.

Then again,
I could also see win/win opportunity
for health as wealthy polycultural activity
in immigrating away from global fear
of nuclear hostility

Emigrating toward global polypathic thrival
post-secularizing revival of cooperativity
principles of Eartherapeutic Energy
as healthy integral democracy,

NonViolent Communication fueled
by
and for
and with Whole
Holistic
Holy EarthTribal
win/win systemic
sacred global integrity.

UnOrthodox Grace

Unorthodox grace
is not limited to restoring healthy face
that your queer sexual wealthy place
is not your disgrace;

Deviation from hetero-statistical means
is your sacred gift
from EarthQueen

Outstanding difference
is not only
and always
your heavy depleting responsibility;
but also your socially enlightened
and culturally empowering opportunity.

We are not illegitimately unknown
and excommunicated
first and foremost by seed planters
overruling births that could not feel more legitimate
to those innocently born
and those giving graced birth
through organic solidarity–
graced labor rights
of compassionate re-creation.

We are also not legitimately known
by who or what we hate;
But we can become redeemed
by who and what we love.

We may have no more choice
about who
and what
and when
and where
and why
and how we express love
than choice to respond with awe
and wonder,
or boredom
and disdain,
to Earth’s natural inspiring
holistic spirited Beauty
Truths of trusted grace

Revisited each dawn and dusk,
each spring and autumn,
each ocean surf and mountain breeze,
each deepening sea and elevating land,
each plant and harvest,
each beginning and ending
empowering light and dark muses

Of graced beauty
which feels racing true
and recasting healthy,
of the highest
and deepest EarthMother legitimacy,
for safest
universally uniting resilience,

Resonantly robust
multicolored wealth
of unorthodox mind
embodied grace.

A Healthier Patriotism

My own patriotic U.S. extended family,
historically,
and currently
remains StraightWhiteMale privileged
in our collective memories,
if not imaginations,
of spiritual communion
with all the more privileged saints
present,
past,
and future

But, we have also suffered
from rather too much faith in capitalism,
which, like democracy,
is frequently faulted as miserable,
but also lauded as better
than all the socialistic
communistic
devilistic
totalitarian
fascist
foreign
threatening
terrifying
anger-inducing alternatives.

Capitalism of our encultured
multigenerational minds
with left-hemisphere dominant brains
favoring natural secularized competitions
between saints and sinners
of diversely threatening monocultural privilege,
persuasions fundamentally supremacist
for democracy in theory
so long as not in perceived conflict
with self-serving capitalism in daily personal practice,
natural and spiritual,
secular and sacred,
ecological and theological.

We are egocentric
sometimes narcissistic
always bootstrap individualistic
evangelical redemption ecopoliticals
but focused on BadNews
of our need to invest in violent self-defense
against Marxist communism out there
in Hell

Not to be confused with commitment to GoodNews
of sacred divine communion
within our privileged StraightWhiteMale places
of apartheid worship
in awe and wonder
dogmatically committed to our StraightWhiteMale God

Made military-industrialized
in our best capitalistic,
not really quite so democratic paternalistic
image of left-hemisphere
StraightWhiteMale rightfully empowered
historical/cultural dominance.

So, there we have it,
this chaotic bilateral dissonance
between our powers of political democratic enlightenment
through whole open-systemic dialogue,
and our confusion about economic uncooperative self-empowerment
at the necessary (either/or thinking) cost of Other disempowerment,
gone sadly win/lose awry
through endless polarizing debate assumptions

That if someone wins,
then all others playing our eco-political game
must lose,
which sounds very much like
survival of the fittest
rightest
left-brain dominant species
OVER AGAINST
Earth’s whole open system
green/blue
ecological/theological success.

Like our dominant left-hemisphere academic theory
of secularized win/lose evolution
is more anthropocentrically capital-headed
and self-righteously defensively effective
than Earth’s sacred WINblue/WINgreen
ego/eco-politics
of polypathic political dialogue
empowering through GoldenRule democratic resilience,

And right hemisphere
polyphonic economic enlightenment
co-invested through Golden Octave Ratios
in interdependent multicultural dialogue,

Holonic nonzero sum,
polynomially left GroupTheory
and polyvagally bicameral right/left Win/Win GameExperience

My extended global
multicultural family
history and future
with more resonant
healthier cooperative democracy
embedded in Earth’s ecosystemic wealth,

Co-invested across multi-generations
of MotherEarth’s wise-dialogue
win/win eco-political
eco-feminist regenerators

Not of colonizing political
and anthropocentric economic privilege
but of democratically co-invested integrity
in sacred green/blue communion.

Disempowering Systems

Systemic racism
is a social/cultural pattern
of racial prejudice
originating within individuals
and their anecdotal experiences
and lack of multiculturally enriching discernment

Shedding light,
and shredding dark,
power analysis,
political and economic,
on patterns of white privileged events
unveils systemic patterns of win/lose empowered privilege
and disempowering lose/lose prejudices,
race and male and heterosexual privileged
anthropocentric unredeeming
lack of communication
events.

Take, for example,
a power analysis of John 3:16:

For God so loved the world [Earth and EarthCreatures]
That He gave His only begotten Son [patriarchal frame]
So that whosoever believes in Him
Shall not perish
But have eternal life.

Literalist
Fundamentalist
Conservative
Evangelical Christians
(should this prove not to be a complex oxymoron)
have supplanted believing in God’s radically interdependent EarthLove
(first phrase)
with doctrinal belief in Jesus of Nazareth
as God’s only begotten, privileged
humane/divine hybrid Son of
StraightWesternWhiteMale
LeftBrain Dominant
Military-Industrialized
Retributive Win/Lose Judging God.

This substitution of belief
in the privileged sacred status
of a Jewish male Teacher
and Prophet,
sharing his potentially viral experience
of Jewish AbbaCreator
as win/win power of universal multiculturing
regenerative Love,
is a culturally profound
early straight white western
(not particularly eastern nature/spirit nondualistic)
privileged-prejudicial moment
of defining God’s economic
and politically empowering grace
in troubling oppositional terms:

First phrase, Regenerative Source is universal Love,
and, third phrase,
Regenerative Source is historically-culturally,
systemically racist.

If, to be orthodox and effectively Christian
is to be spiritually privileged,
then those not born into evangelical Christian homes,
King James Bible reading communities,
Western dominating cultures
are disproportionately
and systematically
and historically under privileged,
disempowered
unredeemed
with less win/win graced
direct experience of Love
Light
Word internal/external
ego-refining/ecopolitical-defining win/win
potential spiritual/natural life optimizers.

Jesus of Nazareth’s prime experiential teaching,
story telling
prophetic “God is multiculturing universal win/win Love”
not revengeful monoculturing
win/lose systemic
racist Judge

Is not resonantly heard,
not resiliently felt,
neither tasted nor seen
through eyes and ears,
hands and heart,
mouth and nose
of straight white male privilege

Too leftbrain dominant
to divinely know
and nondualistically respect
appreciate
primacy of empowering cooperative green/blue Love experience
over disempowering competitive redblooded Lust
for theologically dogmatic unecological lack of relationship,
anthropocentric
xenophobic
narcissistic
individualistic ego-salvific power

To claim sacred wealth of life
for yourself and only your Tribe
by denying truths of sacred/secular empowerment
through win/win cooperative everyday experience
of communion
throughout all EarthTribes

Divine/humane
right/left
yin/yang
green/red
nonviolent communicating Light
of ChristMass Love
Words
Stories of CoRedemption

Democratic,

experiences both ecologically natural
and theologically spiritual;

Devoid

Wiped Clean of racist,
straight male dominant,
leftbrain misculturing
unhealthy

Back the Black and Blue

What do you do
when you’re a black cop
at a Back The Blue protest
with a Black Lives Matter
counter-protest
in front of you,
to left and right,
and possibly pursuing your rear
and career?

Which direction
does your identity choose,
if not to feel troubled
by a false choice
either way?

Is there some platform,
strange principle,
peculiar position
among Mattering Political Black Lives
that you cannot have
a healthy vocation
while carrying a ballistic weapon
and continue being a Black Life
in good and valued standing?

Or, to Back my Blue,
must I succumb
to StraightWhitePatriarchal Privilege?

Are there any color boxes
still widely open
and deeply inviting?

Can I not aspire to become
a non-binary bound,
non-white,
ecofeminist for EarthRights
to health and safety
and peace
and restoring green justice?

Recognizing
and appreciating
only Earth as Master,
Mistress,
Goddess,
Sacred Eden.

Discarding old school memories
of enslaved custody of imprisoned eyes
and ears for hearing,
suppressing custody of healthy taste
and fragrantly smelled beauty,
of cooperative touch
and globally compassionate feeling,

Regarding green lives matter schools
and reschooled deep learning
full 20/20 ownership
of Black and Blue
and Green proud lives
for multicultural mediation.

Cancel Culture

Dear Donald,

Your emperor’s nakedness
is transparently showing
in increasingly risky
vulnerable political ways.

Thought I should remind you,
“Counter Culture”
is short
for Anti-Multicultural Health Care
politically giving
and economically receiving,
sacredly empowering
and secularly enlightening
cooperative co-investments
in global health
of compassionate wealth.

Other than your handful of retweets,
you could teach yourself to un-narcissistically see
and hear,
kindly touch
and responsibly feel,
millions of silent
resistant
non-retweets

From those feeling not too safe
about our healthy futures
as individuals
and as residents of a living planet.

Your neglected ecotherapist,

UnderStated Yet OverHeard

I’m not comfortable
talking about racial differences,

Or even racial
or sensual similarities.

I know what you mean
or maybe I do.
Something intimate and personal
about melanin
and hair qualities
and what lies red-blooded
under shared and segregated skin.

I remember when long hair quantity
was an anti-patriarchal political statement,
maybe even economic;
But not qualities
like “good” hair
or “black” hair
or “kinky” hair
or “Aryan” blond hair
or “much too blond” hair.

I’m uncomfortable
talking about kinky sex, too.

I’m hearing something about mixing
personal and political.

I know, right?

Like, when did the decision to have a baby
or not,
because of emergent climate pathologies,
impending drought
and hunger

Pandemics

Floods

Fierce and frightening windstorms

Failure of insurance
and financial
and healthy-democratic v fake-populist government systems
become more than merely personal?

I don’t know.
I’m starting to see reality of power-centers
the eco-Other way around.

Meaning…

That personal climates
and characteristics
are also politically empowering
and/or disempowering,
often with economic
investment and/or divestment
implications;
Not partisan, especially,
but essentially political,
like positive and negative cultural power.

When was the last time
someone told you,
“It’s not personal,
I’m just not ready to commit”
Or
“It’s not personal,
it’s just a time and money budget problem”
Or
“an administrative decision”
“come down from corporate”
“change in [impersonal, generic, general] policy”
“a decision [choice] made upstairs”
about a group of individuals
of which you, unfortunately,
are a now unwanted part.

As if,
because it’s political
or economic policy,
it can’t become legitimately felt as personal
disempowerment
or even familial empowerment;
like capitalistic corporately learned responses
to cultures of melanin
and kinkiness.

My favorite
is when people ask me
not to confuse religion
with politics
and economics.

I know, right?
Like most of Earth’s human population
could
or would place their faith
in politically impoverished
or economically disempowered
counter-cultural
communitarian cooperative communication
and spiritual and sensory education
and ecofeminist formation failing systems

Like ecologically failing subclimates
and theologically monoculturing racism
and sexism
and straight white patriarchal privileged
left-brain dominant systems.

Personal systems.

And political.

And economic.

And social-psychological

Multiculturally transmitted

Whether by democratic constitutions
or divinely inspired scriptures
or patriarchal lines of spiritual masters
teachers with diverse levels of aboriginal melanin,
and good or kinky hair,
and those upper eyelid folds
I’m not sure I Western trust…
