Creolizing Grace

We often lament long-term effects of slavery
on those enslaved across multiple generations.

Enslavement leads to addiction and codependent denial,
then is taught and mentored to enslaved children,
also separated from family and sold,
until third generations and beyond
were dressed in commodified adoptions
and creolizing adaptions
and fear
and anger
and despair
about not born good enough
right enough
correctly enough
healthy enough
timely enough
to gratefully know God’s White Caste Grace.

As hellish as this continuing historic lamentation
co-arises a tale less told of chronic traumatic stress disorder
issuing from slave owners
who purchased human nature
with a contract exchanging money
for rights and responsibilities
and violent terrorism of animal husbandry.

The children of slave owners,
and those who profited by economic and political relationships with this ancient breed
of traumatized neurotic, if not psychotic, people owners
continue a contagious curse of unresolved stress disorders
to the extent we allow ourselves to hide behind
entitled to be superior ego-manias.

To the extent slavery and concomitant addictions
to violence and racism,
xenophobia and sexism,
capitalism and ageism,
(years of potential return on investment)
resolve to heal White Caste Grace,
to that extent we are open to profound creolization of love,
available only through gratitude for sacred dignity
of all God’s Earthly Creations,
in all our polyculturing diversity.

Yet unresolved owning of people,
sex as transaction between buyer and sold,
and more violent ways and means of husbandry
as applied to women and not straight enough men,
children,
poor and vulnerable populations,
criminalized and shamed and disgraced stigmatizations,
all carry these worn threads of traumatic stress disorder,
human natural lives as if competitions to own and control and rent and manage
other angry fear-avoiding people
were compatible with abundant political ecology of grace
and mutual gratitude’s democratically ubiquitous response.

While the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions
greatly expanded the scale of slave and people-owner tensions
and pathological husbandry enculturations,
moral ambiguities about humane patriarchal stewardship
and matriarchal domesticating husbandry repressions
appear to be as old as Creation Stories.

Freedom for healthy interdependent relationships
remain in tension with deeply etched fears of self-enslavement
and angry insecurities about intrinsic grace
and value
and dignity
shared by all Earth’s Tribes,
all God’s Sacred Creations,
continuing internal landscapes of enslaved property
and more exterior climates of growing competitive
rabid
over-heated
over-populated
Yang-dominant
pathology,
rather than Yang/Yin creolizing harmony.

Transitioning from the Industrial and Agricultural Revolutions
into a permaculturally Sustainable Evolution
invites each of us to embrace
this great divide written across each unhealed yet interdependent heart,
part humane slave owner
and part domesticated addict of self-denial,
to continue more resonant matriarchal self-husbandry
with gratitude for healthy grace,
with love for
and with
and of this Earth space,
spiritual interior and natural exterior
creolizing place.

Immigrants Gone Native

I suppose it isn’t rather nice
to think of us this way,
but to the squirrels
and the trees,
the robins and the grasses,
human natures are Earth’s great transitioning immigrants
on this block
we call a planet.

In this newest arrival sense,
I hope and fear,
we are Earth’s greatest immigrant yield,
pushing transitional boundaries
toward radical landscape and even climate caustic developments
Earth prefers somewhat less infestation of,
for every animated creation’s sake.

Even the rivers and lakes
and ice caps
and glaciers complain
about us,
their latest wave of high maintenance immigrants.

Cousins, maybe,
when Earth’s NonHuman Tribes are in a more generous mood.
Extended family drawn from pre-historic RNA,
then those upstart DNA, roots,
yet still evolving emergent family economies
out to uncomfortably embrace our less ecological nonsense,
causing further stress among all our natural-spiritual natives.

Some,
like rattle snakes and scorpions,
seem quite riled up
about our Beacon on a Hill attitudes
toward them,
our originating hosts.
It is, after all,
one thing to become grateful immigrants,
and quite another to become entitled supremacists
and racists
and sexists
where patriarchs rule over,
and too often against,
our matriarchal lines of Earth’s Original Instructions,
embryonic Golden Rule mentors
for native multiculturing thrival,
which survivalist “us-or-them” recent immigrants
to the White House, not to name names,
reduce to food chain narrow-minded nonthinking,
not noticing
Earth chains of nutrition are also lattices,
circling spirals of eco-immigration
journeying together dynamic cooperative systems
of mutually becoming.

Healthy nature networks
have exegetical advantage
seeing and feeling this lattice structured system
of each new species’ generation
producing new immigrants from our wombs
and harvested,
although not necessarily planted,
health wealthing seeds.

New immigrant generations,
young ones,
may better know and sense
our mutually emergent immigrant status,
circling back toward Original Golden Rule Instructions,
to enfranchise all life
as liberally
inclusively
graciously
polyculturally
as mutual positive outcome possible
to better sing and dance
our proudly shared immigration histories;
co-celebrants interdependently polypathic
and polyphonic.

More than just a humble postscript,
this play of natures
across Earth’s immigration stage proclaim:
If natural and spiritual reason supports democracy
as healthy,
and totalitarian WinLose ecopolitics as pathological,
for human natures emigrating toward health
including happiness
including prospects of co-operative wealthing outcomes,
then Earth’s historical evolutionary grace
kindly invites us to recall
by reconstructing,
What is good for human nature
must remain good for all Earth natures,
animated becomings,
or our native host species
never would have given residency to us,
this last great transitional wave of vulnerable immigrants.

Just because these older waves of immigrants
can’t talk our democratic talk
does not mean they don’t walk
our health and pathology walk.
When in doubt about such radical co-franchisement
ask fading glaciers
and polar caps
how they are voting with their melts
while human natures continue
to stomp our immigrating feet,
hold our newborn breath,
until we hear more blue-green matriarchal,
turquoise regenerate cycling for some
who study emigrating bilateral spirals.

WinLose temperature elevating tantrums,
holding nature’s collective breath captive,
waiting for rebirth of co-animating choices
as Earth’s Tribes of EcoImmigrants
flowering spirals,
effective spells
inciting this one last great co-immigrant transition
into reborn matriarchal,
also cooperatively-owned partner patriarchal,
full-living color,
inviting each and all
to never fade out
to all Western NorthernWhite Capitalists
pursuing monocultural supremacy
of WinLose entropy,
empty dissonance,
white noise of Other Absence.

Squirrels and trees,
robins and rivers,
have chosen us to emigrate from past times
with them
toward our mutual co-enfranchisement.
So, no fair anti-ecologically disenfranchising them,
our native healthing
happy
prosperous democratic hosts.

AntiClimatic Cabinetry

Community organizers
and multiculturing regenerators
and organic whole food farmers
all agree
we tend to end up
back to where historically empowered nutritional voices started.

Look at all these old white men
in their predominantly red meat patriarchal ties.

Is this a cabinet
made of polyculturing organic containers
for regenerate multicultural growth?

Or a funeral
for the not too soon departing
all WhiteHouse?

Thought Experiments

It is interesting to consider a national economy,
and a personal economy,
as iconic of our ionic political empowerment,
and competitively anti-ionic disempowerment;
so economic marginalization
becomes an icon for political victimization
and political opportunity for future WinWin healing.

This way of seeing an iconic/ionic primal relationship
within eco-politics
might support an evolutionary historical view,
which, if reversed in time,
might take us back to an imaginary moment
in each of our LeftBrain developments,
when nutritional wealth was an iconic referent
to a health-empowering referee,
organic-ionic cooperativity
as political integrity-flow of multiculturality.

While I’m not sure exactly how all this cooperative iconic economics of political health investment balances out,
my gut tells me
if you make a common economic mistake
of valuing one life (especially one’s own) differently than another,
for example
the U.S. historical investments in Native Americans and African slaves
as compared to White slave-owners and other farmers,
investment in white men as compared to women of any color,
then we have effectively de-valued all of humanity’s overall cooperative-integrative health potential.

We fall from history’s cooperatively-intended syncretic grace;
incarnate bad chi.

When what is economic wealth-valued LeftBrain
becomes what is also politically/personally health-valued RightBrain integrity,
then we achieve MidWay ecopolitical abundance of flow,
grace,
chi.

Autumn’s Failing Consciousness

New England’s post election trees
shed a few teary waving leaves.
Morning sky tries to shine resilience
yet lingers in ominous grey overcast
of silent waiting through despair.

In Michigan and Wisconsin and Pennsylvania
tens of thousands of mothers
who cherish their daughters
are beating themselves up about yesterday;
longing for a do-over
to avoid confidence in false predictions
of safely voting their libertarian ecoconsciousness,
or too quietly staying home
to rake falling fertile leaves.

Failing leaves feel their personal mortality,
too old, over-extended, to survive another bitter winter
of ex-patriation
while maternal nurturing root systems survive through hibernation,
deeply embedding in Earth’s nutritional compost
of yeasty faith,
waiting for another Advent ecopolitical Season.

Not a branch,
not even a twig stirs from frosty lethargy
wondering Why?
Why would we decide slavery must be illegal
because immoral
yet sexual and capital and incorporated predation
remains legally and morally ambiguous,
as if wealth of male supremacist nobility
were God’s full harvest of regenerative moral gifts,
excusing by betraying grace
this fortunate entitlement
of LeftBrain enduring cockiness
to welcome this winter’s misery,
Earth’s hiatus from integrally nurturing ecology.

Hiding even the sun’s radiant morning glory
from disunited piles of leaving ballots
already preparing to fertilize richer soils
in four more autumnal climate years.

Ecology of Political Trust

TaoTime as ZeroZen Centered

Simple really, this Eastern Creation Story,
imagine all your energetic muscle tissue tribes,
alternating static yin with diastatic yang,
imagine Elder skeletal cells
and structural embryonic marrow-systems,
imagine rivers of vessels and veinish pumping systems,
rhythms and swirling patterns,
revolving neural synaptic-aptic communication systems,
and of course your skin cells
and all those amazing organic mind cells
with their internal and external eco-systemic issues
and economic transfer of nutritional-flow busyness-networks,
all following one health v pathology regenerative ecological model
of cooperative internal/external self-governance.

We are all relatively healthy incarnations,
still breathing and beating and conscious,
ecologically self-optimizing homeostatic ego/eco biosystems,
sharing a (0)centric historical-cultural genetic cooperative network
ecological and polycultural within all DNA/RNA scripted systems,
and multicultural within humane bicameral systems,
organic health-cooperative EarthTribal networks
of nondual co-arising
Yang-Left-Deductive
Yin-Right-Inductive
co-empathic trust
in beloved community truth
as ecologically balancing
mindful
humane
self-optimizing
regenerate beauty
as active love,
eco-political intelligence.

As yin-balanced within,
so yang-empowered without.

Political and economic cooperative empathy,
a private and public, but also ego-intimate
articulating evolutionary empathic capacity
to care about nurturing health and safety environments
for the young.

Remember when powerful political leaders
vocationally cared about healthy futures
for their grandchildren’s grandchildren?

Neither do I.

Future generations,
future regenerators,
future YangYin regeneration of ecosystemic time
as uracil/cytosine strings
informing dipolar co-arising memory,
folding
unfolding
refolding revolutions of evolution’s embryonic organic time.

Courage to lay down Yang macho-male dominant supremacy
is often found in love for nurturing welcomers,
graceful hospitality,
integrity of maleness remembered within embryonic power-flow,
co-empathic matriarchal reception
of love’s cooperative compost
enthymeming positive intentions.

If we cannot remember how to play and strategize
with the imaginative WinWin innocence of a prepubescent child,
then we might try to imagine courage
as open receptivity of a leaf
absorbing light
to produce a more positively empowered atmosphere
for growing future trees with deeply healthy root systems,
producing hard-shelled yang nuts
with nutritional-regenerate yin bilateral development instructions
written across each and every EarthTribe incarnation,
living now between ElderPower past
and FutureFlow of TaoTime ReGenerators.

New Year ReSolution Discernment

Time for New Campaign Year ReSolutions,
perhaps informed with some new political economy
discernment questions.

Why is a free market
most accessible to those with the largest investments
in marketing?

Could this be the same question:
Why are our free political elections
most accessible to those who invest most heavily
in self-marketing?

Why does suppression or oppression or repression,
some kind of taxing expression,
of the free cooperative-barter labor market
feel related to the rapidly increasing disecological cost
of and to Earth’s formerly free commodities,
elements,
information,
co-arising intelligence,
ecosystemic integrity,
and possibly some cooperative hunting and gathering nutrients, while avoiding poisons, research?

Why does it cost so much
to market the economic policies and political procedures
intended to evolve healthy cooperative free markets?

Why does freedom from fearful need for
–debt forgiveness
–redemption
–absolution
–ever more efficient competition and untimely death
feel so much like freedom to give
mutually cooperative absolution
–for being human,
–for not being humane enough for our own SuperEco Awareness,
–for not being unnatural enough
for your EgoCenter to entirely forget
your cooperative political and economic RNA regenerative roots?

Why do I feel
and not feel
free to participate in competing racist/sexist eco-political networks,
structures,
systems,
when I buy groceries and clothes,
every time I support an
–overly anthro-indulgent,
–over-commodified
–overly toxic
–overly carbon-footprinted
–overly Left-brain dominant
corporation,
including political party corporations
competing for market shares in votes,
and how do I feel free to support overly incorporated candidates
for overly-commodified public offices?

Why does an independent permaculturist
sound like an oxymoron,
while a cooperative permaculturist network
sounds like deeply nutritious redundancy?
