Healthy Compassion Parties

I am deeply concerned,
worried,
anxious
that We The Humane Healthy People
need to calmly
and firmly say:

The Republican NATIONAL Party
no longer supports:
Public Health,
Mental/Spiritual Health,
Planetary Climate Health,
Cognitive/Emotive Integrity
Resilient Economic Wealth
Healthy Democracy.

A therapeutic
redemptive revival
of a trusted
true
and patriotic
Grand Old MultiCultural Party
requires pruning back through historic
toxicity
to the Eisenhower administration
channeling the Lincolnesque longing
for a more civil discourse
between those who are enslaved,
those who feel economically
and politically oppressed,
between loyal adversaries
sure of a United State of commitment
to public wellbeing,
green environmental and economic prosperity,
empowering profoundly co-empathic public health
and conservational safety.

My own Michigan
white privileged
homophobic
evangelical ChosenPeople
monotheistic father
never would have voted for a Hillary Clinton,

And he never would have voted for a Donald Trump
because of Anti-Christian vainglorious pride
in having no experience,
including veteran experience,
defending humane health
and sacred social safety.

The RNC owes We
The MultiCultural Democratic People
an apology
and reparations,

A therapeutic
bipartisan peace plan
for national resilience,
for global green health,
and for ecological-economic safety,
sanity,
EarthResonant security.

Climate Reparations

Come by here, Lord,
Kum ba ‘eah;

Come by here, Land,
Kum ba yeah;

Come by here, Love,
Kum ba yah;

Oh, EarthSoul Mama,
come by here!

Someone’s singin’
Someone’s swingin’

Someone’s in pain
Someone’s dyin’

Someone’s laughin’
while Someone’s weepin’

Someone’s prayin’, LandedLady,
Kum ba here.

Each of us contains
a therapeutic difference
Between bad news trauma
from suffering and pain
untimely lost,

Amid degenerating chronic loss
of resilient healthy prospects

Someone’s coming, Land
with aging bones,
with deep Earth longing
to appreciate this difference

Between ego and eco-fragmentation
despair of timeless souls,
capitalization
commodification
buying and selling out
positive regenerating hope
for negative ungenerously depraved profits.

Come by here, EarthBodies
of wisdom to re-attach repairing climates
with vulnerably resonant messages,
re-memories of Earth’s detritional enslavement,
of apartheid bought
and sold embodied souls

From non-elite historic elders past
prayin’ for reparations
restoring youngsters health wealth futures,

Home safe journeys, Earth reparations
kum ba here.

Listening for Sustainability

My daughter,
with Fetal Alcohol crippling emotional intelligence damage
and Cerebral Palsy perpetual TerribleTwo
“is too many,
because Earth is all about ego-defiant me”
has taught herself
to attach her lips,
and sometimes her wet licking tongue
when she is feeling particularly needy
and/or playful
or maybe just hungry,
to my male dominant capitalist-head
when she needs to feel noticed
attached
connected
invested in
better.

This Saturday morning
she commits the unpardonable sin
of waking up before seven a.m.
Eleven is closer to her business as usual.

After bath and costuming,
both accomplished with as little support from me,
autonomously distracted, as possible,
she goes to our kitchen
to watch her favorite animated song and dance loops
on It’s All About You
Tube.

I am hanging out with my son,
also with cerebral palsy,
but unable to walk without balancing assistance
and unable to talk in either direction,
talk back or proclaim forth,
which is more his sister’s favorite skill set.

After a few minutes
of only slightly compromised peace
this sunny summer Saturday morning,
the daughter comes in
to demand her support staff (me)
prepare her royal breakfast (immediately).

I invite her to self-serve.

She says No!
repeatedly
while I remind her
she is capable of going to the freezer,
extracting one microwave pancake and sausage
on a stick,
wrapping it in one square of paper towel,
opening the microwave door,
placing it on the rotating glass plate inside,
closing the door,
pushing 1, 0, 0,
waiting for the ding,
and removing her breakfast by holding the stick,
waiting for it to cool,
removing the paper towel,
and devouring the pancake,
then the sausage,
as usual.

She responds
I want you to do it.

I respond
I want you to do it.

“No, Help me!”

“I am helping you!”

“No!
You do it; not me!”

“Why?”

“Because I”m watching my tablet.”

“And I’m trying to meditate
and write!”

“No! Help me!”

So, I ask for a time out.
We have been at this same impasse countless times.
It’s a ritual,
obsessive and compulsively lose/lose.
We are both not listening
while we are also not meditating
and watching
and writing healthier song and dance stories.

What’s happening here?
You know you can make your own breakfast.
Is this about not wanting to be alone?
Do you want me to show you
how crazy I am about you?

“Can I have a kiss?”

And then we do the “my lips on your head”
And “my head on your lips” ritual.
I give her a back and shoulder massage
while she has her therapeutic attachment breakfast.

My daughter smiles,
leaves the room without further demands,
goes back to the freezer,
pulls out a Blanketed Pig
on a stick…

I go back to writing
about resilience
and remediating potential lose/lose Earth climates
and emotionally cooperative reparations.

My son goes back to sleep,
having had a good belly laugh
at our curiously outspoken craziness,
reminding me
Curiosity is a more effective left-hemisphere tool
than working hard to feel right-hemisphere patience
in the face of apparent weapons
wielded by alien win/lose forces
in an otherwise win/win potentiated
interactive ego/eco-system.

He sits up,
groaning
repeatedly,
until I re-emerge
aware
He needs a diaper change,
on this peaceful sunny summer Saturday morning
riding still-revolving climates of Earth
re-creating green-blue-red
ultra-nonviolent win/win living systems
of actively communicating co-enlightenment.

Maybe we’ll have lunch on the backyard deck
under our barn red umbrella
as the Thames River continues to flow downstream
from northern stars
toward southern sun sustaining states.

Power: Love v Whatever

What might it take for love to conquer anger
fear
hate?

How is holistic compassion already more contagious than a-holistic self-hatred,
we-hatred?

There is more than one way to hear a**holistic here,
but they all have to do with sectarian divides,
sometimes felt more intimately, reductively personal,
and sometimes more transparently, seductively political,

Sometimes closer to home-caused and owned,
and therefore remedied,
and sometimes more great transitional,
and therefore more uncooperatively and disintegratively,
deductively,
unholistically,
sectarianly,
violently communicating
and pro-actively transporting
toxic viruses across monoculturing unhealthy unwealthy
absence of passionately healing opportunities.

Growing holistic compassion,
like growing organic THC,
depends on environmentally empowering supports
for positive,
healthy,
resilient relationships
with all Earth’s co-passionate NatureSpirit systems
and ecotherapeutically integral strategies
for wealth optimizing health,
mental and physical,
spiritual and natural,
theological and ecologically inter-related,
co-arising dipolarities
of contrasting inside and outside Janus-faces
internally/externally co-passionate.

Compassion for oneself opens doors
and windows of consciousness
to pro-actively discuss changes toward robust health
with others
within an authentically wealthy and responsive society
with mainstream healing,

Rather than too often punishing deviance from bullish patriarchal nihilism,
meekly acclimating to non-relational toxic neglect,
failure to nutritionally appreciate yourself,
ourselves,
for who we truly
compassionately already are,
at least in our best positively deviant moments.

So, there lies our individual fundamental key to happiness
by moving from self-punishing habits of thought
and feeling entitled to misdemeanors
and even more aggressive and violent felonies
unreceptive
unpardonable blocks to this journey turning toward compassion
for oneself
spouse
kids
neighbors
community
state
nation
animals
plants
Earth, now
past
and compassionately revolutionary future
Great GoldenRule Transition.

Investing in self-judging voices,
You screwed up again!
You are worse than useless!
You are lazy,
have no healthy work ethic,
want to play all the time
like an irresponsible two year old!
On and on and on…

Such self-afflictions are way less compassionately healthy
than calmly accepting past errors,
sins against compassioning humanity,
without absolving yourself of therapeutic reparations,
carrying all these negatives more lightly
as also enlightening potentially positive partial truths
validly applied to all of us
on our worst days
and most uninvited moments
reacting to perceived neglect, abuse,
shame
blame
diverse toxic pain

While living together in God/Gaia’s city (farm, sanctuary) on the Hill
is more about our universal SuperEgo’s bicameral pilgrimage
to restore Earth’s original holistic compassion.

Passion between a judgmental LeftBrain,
seeking retributive justice,
and a more compassionate RightBrain holism,
longing to restore resilient peace,
wealth of health,
without division between LeftBrain’s sectarian divisions
between what is natural and what grows spiritual

Secular/Sacred cultural divides
grow invisibly transparent outside/inside contrasts
in ancient WilseElder RightBrain memory,
rooted in narcissistically sectarian and co-passioned experience,

WinWin v LoseLose,
political health v economic/ecological toxicity,

Domestic/Global co-passions,
bicultural
binomial
supported by multicultural cooperative responsibility
for actively pursuing health through positive passions.

Passion opens doors to external/internal,
even international/individual
compassionate ecopolitical health outcomes,
planning,
aspirations,
deep learning environmental incoming support
for further positive passion iterations

Deepening robust webs and buds of healthy future
secularLeft/sacredRight WiseElder evolutions,
DNA structurally supported
WinWin non-violent expectations
self-reported

Positive psychological
and political
holistic compassioned powers
polypathically as accessible as green organic grass.

Fear of Climate Success

Fear of Climate Success

If you’re like me,
which probably already reduces the size of my captive audience
to Zero,

Regardless,
if we’re like we used to be
when we were born
with all the potential integrity neurons
of the uniting universe,

Through childhood formed into bilateral rivers
for transporting Win/Lose toward Lose/Lose risky conclusions
and Win/Lose toward Win/Win opportunities
co-arising comparative information

Some neuron trails,
like stars in a misty night sky,
faint,
and only flowing from a causal Source,
somehow more wisely
and sacredly
and greatly elsewhere,
echoing through my ringing
singing integrity
dancing ultra-violet dreams
feeding productive consumer mouths
for articulating LeftBrain developing rivers
of segregated health isn’t necessarily wealth language,
logos.

Other tidal rivers form deeper wealthier underground streams
with diverse ecological
and theological
and analogical
and psychological
and political
and financial
orthodox Both/And Right Brain surfing health/wealth memories
of Both ZeroZone sacred Source origination,
And EgoZone secular mouth of re-creation
flowing in both upriver
and downriver
reiterating loops.

LeftBrain capable of Both/And returning to newborn infancy
re-noticing Outside Voices for ecotherapy
and sacred Celebration

Flowing neural latticed singing stars
shining out Win/Win WiseElder enlightenment,

Holding fire-circle wonder
co-gravitating/co-arising stars and flames
reflecting neural river trails of timeless retold myths
resolving and revolving anthro-cooperative
with eco-logos WinWin nature/spirit stories
co-habiting YangSourced Rivers with YinFlow bilateral returns
primal ZeroZone nutritional choices

Some deeply learned rivers
through orthodox ages of WinWin nutritional evolution
survive the culling of adolescent WinLose
military-industrial
competitively divisive
Either/Or
LeftBrain schools for producers
marketing to information consumers
longing for more robust Both/And hope

Hope remaining
despite lack of responsible faith
in history repeating ourselves,

Good news faith graces sanctuary from blame and shame,
unable to love our EgoClimates for who we are
so unable to forgive our potential EcoSchools
and GreenGrandMother elders
for not remembering to strengthen WinWin
potential Both/And
Cause/Effect
Yang/Yin
Patriarchal/Matriarchal
Competition/Cooperation Cultures
Ego/Eco
Ecological/Theological
climates cooperatively held
for improved bicameral polypathic rivers
of WinWin success.

Health,
inside wealth,

awe,
within wonder,

ecstasy,
predicting enchantment,

integrity,
searing love,

green,
with red,

black,
predicting white,

Either/Or,
searching Both/And,

deduction,
following induction,

reduction,
after seduction,

exhalation,
requiring inhalation,

causal,
when effective,

information,
foreshadowing exformation,

positive,
equal with double negative,

light theology
emerging from dualdark analogical ecology,

sacred,
sublimely secular,

out,
without in,

outside choice,
evoking inside voices,

Win/Lose,
suboptimizing Win/Win,

Yinhaling ecofeminist wombs
Yangforming ego/eco climates
co-arising dipolar integral success.

If your imprinting infant river-systems etched
and sketched
and stretched like mine,
which probably already reduces the size of my captive audience
to one EarthSoul multicultural ZeroZone
for WinWin nutrition strings of neural Right/Left
seasons of reasonable
responsible Both/And healthy energy
without either blaming EcoGods or shaming EgoCenters
for who we WinLose are
and who we WinWin choose to better climate become

SecularYang oceans of thought
with sacredYin
feeling life’s compelling choices
for All Loves Matter.

If you’re still like me,
already reducing the size of our cooperative
health/wealth risks and opportunities
to not not double-binding
poly-dogmatic ZeroSum
deep learning generations
of Earth’s normal ecoschool day
and night,
mythos
and logos,
RealTime entertainment,
and Timeless dreams of ParadiseMusing success.

Waking up to another hopeless all WhiteHouse
Dividing States of competitively irresponsible
RedBlooded Evangelical Supremacist America
without
as within,
inhaled
as exhaled,
sourced
as re-sourced,
resilient
as resonant,
WinLose
to feed and water WinWin or LoseLose Climates
of anthro success
or epic entropic hopeless failure

If you’re like me,
which probably reduces the size
of hopelessly inert witnesses
to one allied cooperative ZeroZone
EarthTribe for Healthy/Wealthy Climates,
inside
learning from outside,
outside
speaking non-violently
cooperatively co-investing
with inside successful WinWin ego-voices,
echoing rivers of recombining neural networks.

If your WinWin Wonder climate
teaches my Awesome inside ecstasy
inviting outside enchantment,
spiritual paradigms
for natural relationship,
bicameral systems
Both/And etched in neural imprints
sketched by recombining health-wealth
original ZeroZone neural roots
nurturing matriarchal ultra-violet’s resounding IntegritySource.

If you’re like me
hopelessly choosing
all loves matter.
