Progressive Reading Brunch

Chapter 1: Deneen’s Failed Liberalism (Revised Version)

Developing progressivism
within liberalism
further iterates pervasive presentism
of win/win
past through future multiculturalism,

A healing timelessness,
progressivism grounds deep attachment
toward our most sensory-nutritional past,

Particularly radically cooperative customs
and multiculturally bilateral geocentric traditions.

While widely understood to be future-oriented,
climate healthy progress rests on simultaneous assumptions
that healthy resolutions must be synergetically liberated
from past win/lose short-term answers,

And our win/win future
will have as much ecotherapeutic regard
for our culture of health
as we have for our ecofeminist understoried past.

The future is an unknown space,
and those who live in climate pathology
now arrayed in fulfilling patriarchal hostility
to MotherEarth-wombed past primal experience
must acquire detachment toward,
and a toxic win/lose simplistic faith in,
an unknowable commodified and shrinking future wealth.

Those whose view of Earth
is guided by such cynical belief
implicitly understand that our “achievements”
are designed for the dustbin
of lose/lose dis-climating history,

Given that our wounded future
regards us as win/lose stubborn today
and necessarily excommunicated
from resilient promise

Every generation must live
to polyculture ourselves
with past through present consciousness.

Capitalism makes humanity into consumers of Earth,
and unsurprisingly,
its culmination has led each generation
to accumulate scandalous levels of debt
to be left for its under-productive children,

While rapacious exploitation of Earth’s win/win integral resources
continues in the anti-eco/theological fundamentalist belief
that future monoculturing generations
will devise a Rapture fly away way
to not deal with Earth’s depletions.

Chapter 2: Mitchell’s Instructions (Devised Edition)

Earth’s repletion
is exactly what happened to me one day
when I saw myself reflected in the Gaian faces
of those around me on the street
of my hometown.

In this timeless moment,
I recognize I am tied to them
in ways that go beyond previous egocentric understanding
of here/now interrelatedness.

I am not only connected
through some historic thread of life,
but share every multi-sensory health/pathology felt climate experience
with them
in every emotion-noticing way.

This causes me to wonder–
what if we really are all one
healthy/unhealthy natural nest,

Not just in a metaphysically interdependent sense,
but theologically and literally one living sacred being
co-passioning climate experiential sensory-neural life
simultaneously in multiple languaged/unlanguaged forms.

If this were true,
then I am complexly encountering ourself
repeatedly in the faces of ego/eco-therapeutic/toxic people
I meet on every street
throughout all past through future time.

As I begin contemplating that possibility,
another question begins to arise for me.

If am am win/win repeatedly meeting ourself
on polypaths of communication,
how do I show up
in this shared win/win well-met future?

Chapter 3: Johnson’s Tight Attachment Hold (Implied Version)

We pinpoint this showing up healthy time
in our current interrelationship
when we suddenly throw off climate imbalance,
when a small win/lose industrious response
or lack of compassionate response
suddenly seems to change our sense of health and safety
with our polypathic lovers,

When we become caught up
in ego-reacting
in a win/lose way,
We know we are tied into
an industrious win/lose evolutionary Capitalism Dialogue.

Maybe we are also aware
of a revolutionary moment
when we find ourselves reacting very angrily
and with terror

As we go beneath this health/pathology surface
reacting to our deeper historically felt emotions
and unpack, raw through sweet,
this integral moment of toxic climate collapse,

Risking ego/eco-therapeutic win/win cooperative healthcare
as multiculturally unfolding opportunity.

What I Owe

What I owe
my kids
their trees
myself
and you,

A more cooperative way to learn
and live
and earn,

An embrace of diversity,
not an attack of I-win/U-lose perversity,

Awareness of strength through vulnerability
to become appreciated for our transparent integrity,
out strengths, of course, but also weaknesses,
teachers recognized for healing fractures
in history’s more benign synchronicity.

What I owe myself
and you
and future regenerations,

Mindful we are the Paradise
of our nature/spirit Elder’s aspirations,

Conscious of fulfillment
in nutritional-vocational prophecy
and not just toxic extractive profligacy,

Understanding compassion
has two faces,
matriarchal ecofeminist within
patriarchal healthy-wealth equity without,
engaged in interdependent becoming
organic story-tellers
and synergetic music singers
and integral movement dancers
in-between sacred native Promise
and future creolizing Wisdom
generations of past through future
re-generators.

This is my work
in our pandemic climate time,
the work of this non-polarizing privileged life
longing for more universally therapeutic
multicultural
compassion,
Climate healing,
inside iconic
ironic
ionic co-acclimating communal outside
integrity.

I owe myself
relearning natural/spiritual nondualistic listening
spoken of by 4D spacetime
revolving
spiraling WiseElders.

We owe each other
polyphonic relationship
long cooperatively held
and co-managed
with all eco-dancing
healthy wealth of creation,
for re-creation.

I owe our children
turning from the story
of left-
and western-hemispheric domination,
climatic destruction,
patriarchal white straight-male supremacist illness,
to return to our new left/right
West/East EarthTribe emancipation story
rooted in 2020 bicameral cooperative re-vision
re-volutionary health/wealth.

Conscious co-creation
of win/win humanity
and eco-sacred ways of sanity,
of loving
and living
and dying,
being and becoming,
birthing and rebirthing,
developing and redeveloping
secular ideas and multiculturally sacred feelings,
integral compassions,
cooperative research vocations
of constant healing change

Recognizing
with humility,
What I owe you
our kids
myself
is that same cooperative economic
and empowering passion
our WiseElders
hoped for restoring justice
and global peace
They secularly and sacredly
naturally and spiritually,
cognitively and emotively
ego-healing and eco-therapeutically
owed you
our kids
and my own male white yang-privileged LeftWing
and unprivileged-yin victim of RightWing homophobia
self

Changing our bilaterally balancing Story
as transparently
and vulnerably
as left brawn with right brain
possible.
