Red and Green Christians

Let’s start with a fundamental flaw of fundamentalist fake-Christianity,
a literary flaw within literal non-interpretation of historical creation
and sacred development.

This is true of radical jihadist Moslims as well,
although we both know you think you’re more special
and politically and morally correct,
so, we can stay focused
on Christian evangelical faith communities
in the United States,
especially in Red-dominant States.

mature Christian conservators of God’s peace and divine love justice
must stop interpreting the words and teachings
and moral-sexual code for healthy v pathological activities
as if JesusChrist had a dualistic view of Spirit,
of Abba
or of human nature as a whole
separated from Earth’s nature,
and as if He lived within a Trinitarian GodHead metaphysical Universe
without a JesusChrist humane-divine nondual Body.

If you truly have the faith of a mustard seed
that JesusChrist taught and lived
in a nondual humane-divine MindBody,
then this explicitly invites us to consider nonduality,
both divine spirit
and humane sacred
conjoining this interdependent Body of Christ
on Earth.

When Jesus says
Why do you worry about stupid stuff
because God made sacred flowers too
and which of you
is arrayed with that much festive splendor,
that diversity of color and beauty and Grace,
a truly Christian evangelist of this nondual teaching,
would not respond with:

“Oh, right,
but that’s just generic secular natural organisms
and physiological development processes,
but not about how God the Creator Father
arrays humanizing nature.”

That separation of Earth’s natural systems
from sacred humanizing spirits
you will not find in Jesus’ words or teachings
or metaphysical code
or moral v immoral law and order of restorative grace.

Although Trinitarianism,
and the dualism separating
Holy Spirits against secularizing Fallen nature
and patriarchal economic and political aristocratic-plutocratic dominance
against matriarchal EarthMother planters and harvesters,
those annoying motherly nurturing issues,
were alive and well
when Roman Catholic St. Jerome
was playing eeny, meany, miserly moe
with sacred stories
and parables
and poetry
and history of God’s inspiring voices,

And dualistic competitive assumptions were still there,
only now starting to military-industrialize
the entire complexion of intriguing inspiring voices
for Holy Wars and Crusades
when the newer King James Interpretation of sacred history,
literature and stories,
sickness and disease,
floods and holocausts,
wars and burning cities with innocent children included
came into your evangelical dualistic minds
and shared fundamentalist culture of Red.

So what?
you have probably already asked.

With this error,
with this lack of personal
and political
and economic integrity,
you have harmed me,
and you have probably insulted my evangelical Christian mother,
who raised me to love
as deeply and widely
as Jesus nondually loved all Earth,
all Earth’s polycultural and multicultural diversity,
as part of one already redeemed
interdependent Body of Grace.

Grace is for those who just say Yes to love
wherever we see love invited,
one arrayed with God’s love,
with CreatorGod’s relationship with each hair
on each head,
with constantly counting all those drab, yet sacred, sparrows,
and wherever hairs are to be even most inconveniently found.

To believe otherwise,
that this sacred reign of God
on this Earth
in this time of Great Transitional Climate Change
is to interpret the words and teachings of JesusChrist
as if He did not mean them literally
of nature as spirit
and spirit as nature.

That he did not literally mean
He invites us to replace addiction to deadly blood sacrifice politics
with a cooperative economy of grace,
Earth as nondual gift,
life as fundamental gratitude
for those natural and spiritual arrayed gifts
available for eyes that see,
ears that hear.

As available as universal baptism of living waters
flowing through our veins
feeding and nurturing even the flowers
with their most festive arrays
and those drab sparrows
and all that inconvenient hair,
even when teased and bleached
to near extinction.

You have harmed me
in a way that forces you to see me
as a person who chose to become sinfully gay,
while actually having been born sacredly heterosexual.

I know this is not true about me,
or about any person with a gender preference
I have ever known
well enough to ask them:

Did you choose to be, whatever?
When did you choose to become, whatever?
Would you still be you
if the prepubescent you
had chosen to become otherwise?
Did it ever even occur to you
that you had a choice
of whom to find attractive
in either an erotic or agapic way?

If you had been given a choice,
If God came down from Heaven
maybe even in a dream
and said,
“OK, it’s time to choose,
those hairs are about to emerge from new places,
Who won this battle?”
How could you choose
to exchange the gifts you were conceived with?

So now,
if you’re following this most unlikely hypothesis
of gender identity choice,
If I didn’t choose this,
then I was recruited
by my very much happy heterosexual
evangelical fundamentalist Christian parents.

Even my evangelical Christian older brother and sister,
and my Unitarian Universalist younger sister,
who agree on not much,
will all tell you
that this recruiting thing
did not happen to me.

My older siblings
are in this sad position,
Either I chose to become homosexually perverse,
deliberately choosing a life of sin,
despite all persuasive evidence of everyone I trusted and loved
during my pre-adolescent years,
or there is a dualistic interpretation of JesusChrist’s words and teachings
that they have assumed was actually there in scripture,
but in fact they falsely believe is there
because they have been religiously indoctrinated
to deny their own spiritual-historical experience
of grace.

To deny our own histories
and herstories of truth,
loyalty to sacred integrity of our internal natural
and external spiritual
sacred climates of loving healthy love
with hating pathologically competitive hatreds.

Restorative healing grace
invites economies of polyculturing love
and these are not to become confused with
retributive justice politics
of dualistic injustices and war-
and hate-mongering.

Imagine growing up in a world
where Jesus taught you must grow up into mature polysexuality
and this was accepted and presumably experienced as true
by all you loved and trusted
except you,
hopelessly heterosexual only.

We would sing
“Onward Christian Soldiers
marching off to war…”
and you would worry
how you might possibly stay under range
of our automatic rifle fire.

That is the harm you have brought to me
through not believing in the nonduality of Earth’s Matriarchal Nature
and God’s Holy Spirit
as per the literal nature-spirit teachings
and parables of JesusChrist.

And this is the retributive monotheistic harm
you have brought into this Nation’s sacred patriotic commitment
to protect and conserve grace-arrayed beauty and health
of this Mother Land
and all of Earth’s sacred interdependent multicultures
of internal
and for external
climates of health
through less competitive dualistic pathologies.

All are invited to restore justice and peace
to turn away from OldSchool retributive injustice
and not-so-divinely inspired violence,
to vocations of healing
and not for judgments against others,
as if any one way of becoming
were not replete with multiculturing truth
and polypathic nondual sacred loves.

Imagine you were born into a RedState
where only you could see in full color,
but you have read experiences of GreenStates
in full polycultural glory.
Would you believe God is calling you
to punish all those who could only see in black and white?
Or inviting you to restore your RedState
to GreenState Traditional Arrays of Grace?

Red and TrueBlue Family

Red and TrueBlue Family–4

Dear Siblings Three,

At least three of us four
have survived this first round
of sharing our seeing Reds
and ourĀ  feeling Blues.

At this point
I imagine our eldest sister
reading with interest,
and/or possibly contempt,
and holding all these things
in her heart and mind.

The other three of us,
two Blue,
elder Brother Red,
each have told our stories,
reviewed our positions
during this first year
of the Trump CEO
Public Sector Administration,

I did not find an explicitly stated value
or disvalue
shared by all three of us.

There are, of course,
several values and disvalues shared by the two Blues,
Kerry and me,
and two disvalues
shared by RedMike and BlueKerry
are loss of freedom
and loss of safety.
And, although I didn’t say so,
I would certainly put these two
squarely in my disvalues column
as well.

Integrity is a positive value
mentioned by both RedMike and BlueGerald, me.
While BlueKerry does not use the word
I know her well enough to appreciate
this also fits transparently within her values lens
just as venality and mendacious subterfuge
are disvalues
both Blue and Red CoHeld,
and yet too often targeted
by cash-fed multinational media.

as we love integrity
we are also fascinated by its evil opposites,
like Lot’s wife
looking over her climate holocaust shoulder
when it would be way better for her health
to dwell on the PromisedLand in front of her.

Blue responses
emphasize health care giving
and sacred gift economy receiving,
restorative justice and peace,
and ecological education
as therapeutic values.

Mike’s Red response
emphasizes moral code,
law and order,
retributive justice
and defensive technologies and personnel
as more saliently held values.

these are apparent differences of priority,
not necessarily oppositional Win-Lose differences.
Points of contrast invite comparison
and need not predict disloyalty of mutual incompatibility.

To my surprise,
and dismay,
I do see some points where active RedValues
seem to also be active BlueDisValues,
double-binding Win-Lose Boundary Issues:

Divine rulership-authority / degenerate monoculturing climates, cultures
Military strength / loss of global and national safety thru violence
Monocultural intent, monopolistic monotheism / sacred polyculturalism

As I look at these three,
they begin to look like three faces
of one tension
within a shared Sacred PolyPathic Intention:
Retributive blood justice through crusading JustWars
Restorative EcoJustice through BiLateral PeaceMaking.
Old Testaments
within New Grace Contexts.

From a Red evangelical Christian frame,
this takes me back to Jesus Christ’s
prime Messianic message
and function
and purpose:
Jesus came to save this entire creolizing Earth
through Abba’s restorative grace economy,
baptism through living water and full enlightenment,
healthy light transubstantiating His Judaic Law and Order
retributive sacred justice through blood sacrifice Traditions,
through just-wars and OldSchool self-righteous jihads
and military might of Caesar’s commodifying Win-Lose coin,
colonizing violence all now washing away
by baptism of Messianic-Bodhisattva redemption,
polypathically sacred,
polyphonically sung and danced
by and through rivers of sacred world-citizen enlightenment,
bilaterally cooperative spiritual experience
of polyculturing Grace
for a world so loved
God created
to regenerate Christ’s EarthBound Eden,
perpetually reborning.

First Nation’s creolizing sacred healthy invitation,
multicultures of and for Earth gratitude,
is Second Constitution’s colonizing,
and King James Bible-rooted,
EnLightenment Intent,
away from monotheistic totalitarianism of Royal Rulership
in favor of polyphonic truths of grace
in democratically evolving cooperative trust,

Father of ego’s Hope,
Son of Earth’s Great Transitional Faith in MultiCulturing Grace,
Spirit of (0)Tao Primal Relationship
through ReStorative EgoPeace
within Sacred EcoJustice
as nature-spirit mentored
by MotherEarth.

So, now I bow
in Taoist-Christian gratitude
for these our gifts
and invite our minds and hearts
to speak through One Grace Way,
bicameral Truth,
bilateral times in loving Life
restoring Eden’s global ReGenesis.

When I was a fundamentalist egocentric child,
I listened and spoke as an innocent child asking Why?
When we ecopolitically mature into One Body of Bodhisattva-Christ,
we speak polypathically
and dream polyphonically
to ask Why Not?

In Jesus’ eternally transubstantiating Name
and Word
and Way
and Truth
and Timeless Life,
Your Brother Gerald,
inviting our most generous 2020 responses
of and for mutual democratic trust
in divinely generous truths
we all can share on Earth
as in Eden’s Heavenly Promise.


Cain and Abel

The story of Cain and Abel
is also a history of Yang and Yin
when pitted against each other
rather than regeneratively struggling with creative tensions.

Cain was a hunter,
a predator
killing other blooded species
for nutritional purposes,
competing against other self-defensive creatures.

Abel was a gatherer,
a farmer
nurturing facilitation of multi-generational non-blooded species
also for nutritional purposes,
cooperating with other defenseless creations
other than a few thorny challenges
to Abel’s happier WinWin harvest,
unmarked by gore and heart-stopping death.

God loved both
just as they were.
But Cain,
always hunting in a presumed WinLose competitive forest
against other food-chain species,
became concerned that God loved Abel more,
then jealous,
then angry and impatient with feelings of inferiority,
somehow diseased in projected sacred eyes
for harvesting as was his preference.

Not really Cain’s choice;
just his patriarchal Yangish way,
in contrast to Abel’s more matriarchal Yin-nurturing way
to worship and digest God’s grace
of health nurturing wealth,
nutritional promise.

It was easier for Abel to see
that God blessed both patriarchal hunters
and matriarchal gatherers
to cooperate together
for mutual nutritional purposes,
and healthiest outcomes.

Abel was able to recognize
Yang’s dipolar co-arising value with Yin,
predation and integration,
competition within a cooperatively democratic household
of co-redeeming economies.

Cain’s jealousy crisis
grew into malignantly chronic despair,
until what was not of patriarchal competitions
he treated as matriarchal waste
of God’s wiser Yangish potential,
thereby creating God in Cain’s own image
rather than God’s hybrid nondual potential,
loving both Yang and Yin together
nondually co-arising cooperativity.

So, Cain laid Abel to waste,
he drained Yin’s nurturing blood,
creating dissonance and dismay and death
where YangLeft and YinRight
were meant to competitively cooperate
their mutually controlling nurture
abundantly regenerate

Yet matriarchal nurture
of cooperative WinWin self-organizing,
internally reorganizing,
political systems and economic networks
are not mere waste of failed patriarchal competing
unto monocultural degenerate despeciating outcomes.
Unless we both Left and RightBrain choose
to see our bilateral selves
that bipolar competitive
and insane


Bad News Gospels

The Gospels share a negative understory,
thematic across all four.

However diverse these four voices may be
in describing and delineating Messianic love,
and political-economic priorities for poor spirits,
all four are univocal with anecdotal warnings:
If you are on the supremely powerful hoarding side
referring to those less fortunate than your enlightened self
as mere cowards
and traitors
and sinners
being who they marginally are,
as they perhaps criminally are,
for acting out insanely,
as they compulsively,
but not long-term nurturingly, will,
then you are on a wrong side
of co-redemptive ecopolitical action;
the wrong side of the GoodNews Gospels.

Blaming the victims
of poverty and ecopolitical marginalization
of abuse and neglect,
of addiction and victimless criminalization,
is the Gospel-condemned hypocrisy
of desecrating Pharisees
and Sadducees,
and other clericalist malignant Aristocrats,
Caesars breeding Mammon
rather than CoMessiahs breathing Manna.

If we create an old with new blend of Jesus
as Solomon,
a more positive Gospel message
invites discerning issues of freedoms and rights to say
and/or do and not do
by asking ourselves, and each other:

Will this democratize freedoms to love,
to participate
to cooperate
to look for WinWin resolutions?

And, will this build higher boundaries around monoculturing restrictions
toward further WinLose anger,
chronic hatreds,
while excusing hypocrisies
of supremacists calling themselves on the side of defusing love’s barriers,
removed from cowards,
soft on healthy defense,
fostering long-term economic disaster areas,
deniers of LeftBrain healthy nondual co-realities,
detractors from patriarchal capital-obsessed evolutionary self-aggrandizing theories
as more culturally important
than Matriarchal-ReGenerative CoOperation Stories
about Messiahs
and wise guys, royal as humble-servant birth
of healthy,
courageously cooperative,
mutually trusting and vulnerable ecopolitics.


Theological Traditions

If scriptural exegesis
is also theology as ongoing process,
and process at least hopes for progress,
then no surprise
that Process Theology becomes explicitly evolutionary,
and, more precisely,
a revolutionary regenerative v degenerative emerging process
of polypathic consciousness.

Herein lies an eco-intelligence
if deductively patriarchal dominant–matriarchal submissive,
then also matriarchal bilateral flow inductive;
these two nondual dipolar co-arising
cooperative more than competing bipolar competitive,
capitalist ecopolitical ego-centric,
Might of God’s Jealous Vengeance
Makes Right
as dualdark understory
of ParadisePromise
Ego/EcoProcessing CoOperative CoOwnership,
WinWin BiLateral,
Ionic/Bionic BiNomial.


Fundamentalists ReDefined

Fundamentalists compete with and through struggling evolution
as Transitionalists would further peaceful revolutions.

A patriarchal-historical view
rooted in interpretation of sacred scripture
written by a nondual co-arising NatureSpirit
dipolar appositionally rooted
of and for regenerative health,
that would err on the side of removing the “natural” lens,
leaving only the reified “ego-spiritual”.

In Taoism,
this would be ecopolitical bias in favor of PatriarchalYang
and disfavor, suppression, of MatriarchalYin.

In Unitarian-Universalism,
this would be ecological and ecopolitical bias in favor of Universalist-StaticTruth Elitism,
thereby suppressing Unitarian-TransitioningTruth Cooperativism.

Sacred scriptures were originally said
and eventually written down,
within ongoing enculturing evolutionary intent,
inspired by persuasive and celebratory and terrifying experiences,
for those with eyes to see,
and ears to hear,
Earth’s enspirited nature,
both matriarchal and patriarchal,
and all creolizing non-elite multiculturalism in between.

This evolutionary co-empathic trust
in dipolar NatureSpirit creolization of experience and language
resists fundamentalist over-spiritualized
and under-historic denaturalized,
and patriarchal-elitist languaged and modeled,
and modern Cartesian dualist
Either ReGenerativeSpirit/Or DeGenerativeNature
absences of full BothAnd
nondual co-arising comprehension.

Human language for interpreting traditional systems
is also human ecopolitical LeftBrain expression for understanding transitioning historical systems,
including wisdom from great bilateral nondualist NatureSpirit thinkers
of the permacultural ancient
through modern deductive-reductive-reifying nature struggling against spirit,
science over spiritual expression,
academic world,
together providing a wealth of creolizing paradigms,
where wealth of science could inform healthy nature-spirit teleology,
and natural co-empathic ethological flow functions
and regenerate/degenerate trend analysis
could reform deep WinWin wisdom science,
to help transition us toward nature-spirit nondual observation
and more nutritional
and less toxic
experience of climates and landscapes in revolving transition.

Nondual co-arising deep-transition multicultural,
rather than denatured and reified-spiritualized fundamental,
and permacultural bicameral design revolutions
only bring sensory-neural balance and comfort and contentment,
peace with justice,
as we reconnect to this transitional wonder
and NatureSpirit mystery
of emerging life through regenerative interdependence
rather than merely reductively degenerating fundamentalism,
stuck in the LeftBrain cul-de-sac
of furthering interpretations of emergent scripture
as also furthering supremacist patriarchal elitism.

Unless we open our NaturalSpiritual democratic eyes and ears,
and use our bilateral hands and feet,
and our bicamerally inclusive hearts and minds and voices,
all these multiculturing paradigms
cannot cooperatively co-redeem us
from our own competing egocentric and anthrocentric
foundational excesses.

LeftBrain dominant Fundamentalists are to postmodern evolution
as LeftRight MultiCulturing Transitionalists
further cooperative-creolize
patriarch/matriarch reproductive right-with-left resonant revolutions.

Human nature-spirits,
like all Earth’s BodyMind Tribal Natures,
choose between the exegetical neural path most taken
and the eisegetical sensory-imaged paths less taken,
to compare and contrast their optimally creolizing outcomes
when regeneratively combined
for further transitioning,
further choosing
along further regenerative/degenerative branches
of co-revolutionary becoming.




Follow Earth’s Authoritative Light

Borrowing from David Holmgren, Permaculture Principles and Pathways Beyond [Win-Elite v Lose-NonElite] Sustainability, 2002, p. 1

Health ethics are Beloved Community normative principles
used to guide action toward good and light and right outcomes
and away from degeneratively bad and wrong outcomes,
darkly ego-pathic and monoculturing
rather than polypathically polyculturing.

Regenerative ethics constrain Ego’s Win/Lose (Either/Or) survival instincts
and other ecopolitical constructs of self-interest
competitively driving humane-enspirited-enlightening BothAnd behavior.

Enculturing ecosystemic ethics
evolve mechanisms for growing and extending co-enlightening self-interest,
a more ego/eco bilateral-centered inclusive view
of who and what constitutes “ego-plus-light/dark environment”
evolving a longer-term regenerative/degenerative understanding
of WinWin-good and LoseLose-bad monoculturing outcomes.

The greater the polypathically authoritative power of humane-divine civilization
(due to information/energy equitable accessibility and ownership)
and the greater our concentration and scale of ecosystemic light-power
within our ecopolitical praxis,
the more prescriptively critical ethics become
for ensuring long-term Beloved Community cultural,
and biological,
short-term survival through long-term light-authority thrival.

This ecological view of enculturing ethics
evolves regeneratively central
through the nutritional v toxic development of a post-millennial culture
in, of, and for post-mature climax of paid-out-forward
energy descent
without concomitant authoritative creolizing
ecologically composting
nutritional health-information descent.

Like polyculturing descriptive design principles,
cooperative pay-forward co-investment ethical principles
follow three broad enlightening (v endarkening) maxims
or ecologically polypathic principles:

1. Care of/for Earth; includes, but is not limited to
2. Care of/for people; includes, but is not exclusive of
3. Carefully set authority/responsibility maturing balance limits
to ego’s authoritative light consumption
as double-binding eco-other reproductive responsibiity
and eco-redemptive
redistributing surplus of light-nutrition;
also decelerating degenerative dark-toxic waste.

Health-wealth cooperative principles distill research of and for Beloved Community polyculturing ethics,
as adopted and creole-adapted by older nature-spirit nondual religious
and polypathically multiculturing cooperative groups.

The third principle
embryonically evolves out of the second principle
embryonically evolving out of the first principles of polypathic ecological Earth.

Luke (the HealthProfessional) 11:33-34

The lamp of the body is the eye.
If therefore your eye is polypathically healthy,
your whole body is illuminated;
but if your eye is pathologically ego-supremacist,
your whole body will be dark
[closed off to The Perfect Light, see also Rumi on nature-spirit light v dark].
If therefore the light in you is darkness,
how [monoculturally] great is that darkness!

Dale B. Martin, Biblical Truths: The Meaning of Scripture in The Twenty-First Century, 2017, pp 52-3

These verses are about the importance of [light/dark] perception;
we may say even [healthy] attitude.

If my faculty of observation,
whether of the world,
of other things,
of other people,
of one’s own situation
is bad or unhealthy,
I will myself be in a bad, unhealthy state.
Having good [polypathically mature] perception is necessary for having [and regeneratively retaining] good internal health.
This is not, therefore, just a statement of [descriptive] fact,
though it is that;
it is given as a moral [prescriptive] lesson:
we ourselves are morally responsible for how we perceive things
[light ecologically and dark ego-pathology].
Jesus is telling us to train our eyes to see [ego/eco-conscious enlightened] well,
not badly, not in an evil way.

But this also means we are not destined to only one way of seeing.
We can [re]learn to see [cooperative light v overly-competitive dark] properly.
We can train our eyes to see in a [humane-]godly and [active] loving manner.
And in fact, we [ecologically] have to [descriptively and prescriptively].
Seeing properly–
[humane-]godly [co-operative creolizing] perception,
correct [nondual co-arising light/dark] seeing–
is a learned and practiced [sensory-neural] skill….

Seeing the world around us in a positive [light and negative-dark],
accurate [polypathic ecological] way is a moral,
and social [ecopolitical authority with concomitant] responsibility
(naive optimism that denies the [deauthorizing reverse-authenticating ecopolitically dark competing] facts is no virtue either).

Thus, though [merely personal creolic ecological acclimation] empiricism cannot be an absolutely [exegetical] reliable means to [polypathically] correct knowledge,
we must learn to use it and use [enlightening authority and mutual endarkening responsibility] it well,
even [especially] when doing theology
[and teleology,
and ethology,
and economic and political regenerative purpose,
and meaning of humane-godly lives and deaths].
