Choosing Happy Health

My round white anti-depressants
were trying their faithful best
to listen to my ecofeminist
wise old woman
gardening neighbor,
pulling aggressive weeds

Sharing with me
her morning meditation reflection
immediately after entering dawning eyes
and before exiting her dreamy
comforting
fertile bed

Her opening
and excavating self-invitation
to choose body health nutrition
and mind happiness nurturing
which are snugly associated
for her
like peas and carrots
remembering well-versed voice
intention

But,
not so much for me,
now able to choose health
almost every dawning day
and dusky night
but still struggling
for post-traumatic omnipotence
to thrive toward happiness
by empowered choice,
even if not enlightened voice
articulating all the many thankful ways
remembering well-cultivated rejoice.

What my gardening neighbor
and I speak of
feels like my dull
and darkly present
spatial stuck unchanging place

Which she
unlike me
can also remember
as having evolved through time
from current EarthTribe regenerating days
becoming nurturing seasons
within each annual surviving incarnation

Reversing back toward warm
welcoming first dawn light’s
empowering sacred
thriving invitation.

Democratic Compassion

I believe,
rooted in limited personal experience
of unconditional love,
the purpose of democratic governance
is NOT FREEDOM of individual persons
segregated communities,
self-isolating economic states,
severed biosystemic regions,
patriotic partisan nation-states,
isolated continents.

I believe
even our deepest sacred meaning
for divine governance
is not freedom away from, or toward
god or country,
but to restore
maintain
persevere
in unconditional love
to and from
both divinely healthy
and wealthy humane government.

I believe
compassion is a secular public purpose
and deeply sacred
personally experienced and delighted
sacred meaning
for democratic governance.

I believe
freedom to express unconditional compassion
is the win/win means
to an EarthTribal peace
ending endless competitive win/lose debates,
retributive punishments,
greed-infested governance
of the individual oppressive person
repressive community
suppressive state
degenerative biosystemic region
rabid nation-state
exploited continent.

And I believe,
rooted in limited personal experience
of unconditional love,
this individual living health
is organic win/win wealth
unveiled in interdependent sacred webs
of EarthTribe’s living
co-passionate
green/blue planet.

profound sacredly interdependent differences
between begrudged

oppositionally defying
a jealous and vengeful Jehovah
of retributive justice.

Such thinly disguised
severing No!
Not Healthy!
Greens feel
as not really spiritually
mentally
physically
naturally equal,
healthy,
or resiliently safe
to quietly tolerate
while sacred Earth’s
crust grows climatic
unease.

Mere Tolerance,
rather than warm Curiosity,
democratically healthy Empathy,
doesn’t even meet second-class Sympathy
health and safety standards,
much less first capital co-investment
active hope for feeling

emerging democratic health,
mental

natural whole-sum wellbeing,
wealth optimization
through green-healthy
win/win bipartisan engagement
co-passion
co-empathic parties.

Mediating blue win/lose tolerance
may be a short-term strategy
to win individualistic AnthroSafety here
only to inevitably lose global EcoGreen-health now,

To survive this Red EarthDusk
at the Green cost cusp
of non-thriving future panentheistic regenerations
of tomorrow
can never win/win thrive
Jehovah’s individualistic Rapture
today.

More than Tolerance,
LeftWing liberal green EarthLovers
seek healthy co-empathic enlightenment
and safely cherished gratitude
for longterm win/win resonant
EarthTribe thrival
of a globally cathected
panentheistic
ecofeminist Green
cooperatively-owned
and managed
co-governing humanity.

This CoPassion,
between bilateral therapeutic communion
and bicameral non-violent communication

Grows safe-felt resonance
recycling polycultural green nutrition values
which revolve

ReGenerate
emergently spiraling
positively viral:
Win liberating health
to also Win sacred conservancy
of EarthTribe safety
through bipartisan
co-empathic communication,
rooted in trusted Blue/Green Earth
health/wealth systems.

A big ecosystemic Green Yes!
both Red monotheistic theologians
and Blue panentheistic ecologians
want the promise of anthrosupremacist democracy
to nation-state survive

But,
more than merely tolerating
LeftBrain intolerance
of RightBrain both/and hypothetical ambiguity
in-between secular Green/Blue
polycultural healing ecologians
and sacred Red
mono-theologians
speaking out
acting up
for a harmful judging
blaming and shaming
God made in

punishing
wounding
supremacist images

Our Green-most active hope
lies within what we commonly share:
Polycultural values
for integrity of safe EarthPower
and healthy SunLight,
for developing democratic
forest mountain strength
and river meadow flowing
CoOperative Trust

To health-resonantly,
resiliently-safe Thrive
our Left/Right multiculturally valued wonder
and curiously awesome EarthTribe

Comedic
in our stingy democratic intent
to Tolerate AnthroBlue Laws
as if sufficient for climate health,

And intolerably Tragic
in our sacrilegious
unGreen
militaristic Red demagoguery
as if necessary
for ecopolitical EarthWealth.

Liberating Addiction

I need to talk about addictions,
about my addiction issues,
and maybe yours.

Addiction gets a deserved bad rap
but that doesn’t mean we have no more
than mean-spirited possibilities.

Our first addiction,
and, for the lucky ones,
the functional extended multigenerational
multicultural families
and liberating tribes,
also the last,
is love.

Love,
hidden or wide unwalled open
for another human,
another species,
another culture,
another part of Earth,
and other, costly
medicinal substitutes,

Drugs and alcohol,
guns and loud danger,
cars and sex,
coffee
and comfort
and convenience,
beauty
and enlightenment
and luxury,
notoriety
and money
and security,
all poor substitutes
for the nurturing feel
and natural touch,
nutritional smell and taste,
native sight and sounds
of love.

I have two issues
with addiction.
One is my obsessive-compulsive need
for my next, even better, fix
what’s broken.

I find it humbling
to be cravenly overpowered
by physical and mental,
natural and spiritual, want,

By my longing to climax
resiliently
resonantly
universally embraced by Earth’s most incarnate
and eternal
esteem,
communion,
co-passion.

But, physical addiction
can be softened,
eased,
healed more readily
and stadily
if not for my shame
and hide in the closet
self-judgment,

If not for my weak
and sinful shadow nature,
My need to hide
my darkest fruit truths
about not being in control
of my own autonomous will power.

And, so it is,
I hide my greatest weakness,
my greatest internalized enemy,
and thereby feed and water feelings
of guilt,
self-blame shame,

A failure to grow vulnerable love for others
I cannot see in naked love
and truth
and transparent beauty
because I fear to meet judging eyes
and minds,
voices
conserving dismissive choices.

Secret addictions
have all my darkest powers
of steadfast
and cyclical disempowerment.

Acknowledged addictions
I can call out courageously,
then curiously explore
with my housemates,
neighbors,
teachers and parents,
children and listeners,
supportive groups of similar addicts,
medicating absence of love’s
spiritual wealth
without natural walls.

Fears and angers spoken
and named
thereby weaken
as love swells
for positive addiction,

Which, as long as not risked
stays absent,
even from our healing selves
grasping mercy
for becoming merely mortal
and expecting my birthright
of a health wealthy society
good faith community
family
with multicultural addiction values
and unlovely disvalues

Summarized in GoldenRule behaviors
and positively addicted open
vulnerable
transparent
courageous
actively curious gratitude
attitudes of cooperative disclosure.

This power of my unhealthy addictions
lies more heavily in hiding my self
secret depressions
repressions
suppressions
dark impressions
that true and beautiful,
resonant and resilient love
is too far above
my emotional pay scale,
worthy of our co-redemption,

Too big a reach
to try to open up again,
to share my weak addictions
and strong compulsions
to feel and touch
taste and see
where love was lost
while pursuing lesser
hidden things.

Sympathy Isn’t Quite Empathy

To affirm and promote acceptance
of one another
and all together one
is to also affirm and promote
growing capacity for active empathy,
not settling for passive,
sometimes also ToughLove aggressive,
sympathy

The best possible outcome
being mere liberating tolerance–
which is still a big evolutionary step up
from conservative survivalist
intolerance,

Which anyone
who is in any way
not BusinessAsUsual
LeftBrain dominant
StraightWhite patriarchal
can tell you,
at probable great anecdotal length
personal
political

education sadly replete
with unsystemic intolerance
of indigenously sacred

That win/lose passive tolerance
is NOT active
democratically healthy
wealthy multicultural acceptance,
an immensely positive moral
legal

natural polycultural
deep immersion value

Omnipotently integral potential knowledge
of why eco-political empowerment
and enlightening wisdom
are more than mere personal win/lose tolerance

Privileged Choice ValentineVoice

My problems
include discomfort
with Money overwhelmingly talks
and talks
and talks political privilege

When not monopolistically
monotheistically
monoculturally screaming
about short-term survival issues,
international violation
of national resource systemic tissues,
long root ego-systemic win/lose fissures.

My Here/Now bigger
eco-empowering global system
concern,
our patriarchally uncivil
red-winged capitalist
runaway extractionist
EarthMother-rapist
climatic issue,

Suffering,
sense of epic historical
left and right winged cooperative loss,

Money’s monopolistic verbing Voice
thereby unilaterally revaluing
safe EarthSurvival choice
in Her claustrophobic
polluted
soul starved
dehydrating
degenerating sacred Chamber
of my own monotheistic wombed
LeftBrain-ranting mind,

Thinking about safe short-term survival
when we would be more prudent
to cooperatively feel reassured
about our long-term global win/win
thrival of love-life on Earth–
including my own EgoIdentity

Which would not silence money’s multi-polyenculturing
co-invested Voice,
empowering healthy democratizing influence
on health and safety EarthChange Choice,

Better
in a lower
and more resonant tone of resource key
for worshiping all EarthTribe Lives
copresent Here with Now

Also with those sacredly curious compassions before
and those naturally recycling nonviolent communions
yet to offer sufficient silence

So I might more actively hope to hear
our more cooperative
globally unmonetized thrival Voice
for restoring health wealthy climates
of green
HereNow
peace-graced Choice
through EarthTribe joyful justice.

Tolerating the Intolerable

I cannot tolerate
those who are intolerant,

I cannot stand
those who take a stand
against unknown others
unlike themselves,
much less than we are truly
health and safety seekers
multiculturally alike.

I can tolerate anything
except intolerance,
most certainly including impatience with myself,
not excluding my esteeming
estimating
assessing
empathizing
sympathizing
realizing
without finalizing
self and others
as myself
in others
as myself
co-empathic within other
cooperatively tolerant relationships.

I cannot not multiculturally tolerate
monoculturally elitist tolerance
of injury to MotherEarth,
of patriarchal-capitalist
straight white incorporated privilege
of which I am so much an unwilling
and unwitting
and unwisely competing un-part.

I can tolerate anything
except intolerant exceptions
to multicultural GoldenRules
to love unto others
as I would be loved,
as I tolerantly,
yet impatiently,
without active curiosity
about afflicting win/lose experiential wounds,
love my left egoself
as eco-other

Best at loving
my more than tolerant
best and brightest ecosystemic Teacher,
Master,
Mistress,
Mother,
Father,
Outdoor GreenGodVoices and Inside Healthy EarthChoices,
CoCreators of all EarthTribes,
as my actively cooperative green Self
as part of LifeSystemic InterDependent Tolerance Habitats,

More of a right-hemisphere tolerated HumanTruth
is also left-hemisphere
awesomely unfathomable EarthBeauty

Sacred vocation into selfless worship
of His/Her barely tolerable comings
and goings,
solstice
and equinox,
inhales
and exhales,
yang tolerant strengths
and yintegrity’s intolerance
of business as usual
lack of win/win
green cooperative inspiration
inhalations,
more tolerant intimations.

I cannot remain uncurious
about my own monculturing,
dualistic,
anthro-supremacist
Sacred EarthMother denialistic
pathological
pedagogical
apartheid tolerance
and disinvestments
away from cooperative polycultural EarthHealth Systems,

Care giving and receiving
democratic
social
public
biological
mental
animated
energetic
ecological
synergetic
pedagogical
theological
eco-political
healthy multi-systemic
poly-paradigmatic resilience

And so I ask
through my intolerably insatiable curiosity,
what is the greatest experience you have had
so far,
of self
as part of other?

And, my answer
ubiquitous in original gifted,
fore-given onto Earth’s
vast green living birthday context

MultiColored in associated feelings,
ranging from
“everyday since ego’s embodied birth
continues my grateful eco-celebration
of positive healthy neuro-psychological systems”
to
“everyday since has been hellishly
wounding downhill.”

It is these latter intolerable losses
and sorrows
and sufferings
painfully defensive monoculturists,
like my egoSelf,
are most likely to impatiently challenge
my yin-flexible plasticity
toward restoring win/win active curiosity

Responding to such hopelessly naive
green optimism
with defensive win/lose intolerance
for risking active healthing hope
of wealthy faith
in lavishly liberal love

When all intolerably long debating
shouting
and highly competitive
corporate marketed evidence
of my lifelong miseducated
and diseducated unhealthy
win/lose normative economic
devolutionary
disempowering
disillusioning
inevitable and intolerable
lose only to mortally lose
nihilistic theorized experience
ignores all green signs
of fore-giving cooperative economics,
co-redemption messianic politics,
restorative justice,
non-violent communication networks,
organic polycultural systems designers,
democratizing health/wealth bicameral tolerance

Today too red egocentrically limited
to progressive green WinWinners
gifting forward political economies
supporting local win/win value communications
intentions
more than tolerant appreciations,
slow-grown sacred applications,
prayers,
anthems

To global green compassion,
far beyond mere tolerance,
for Earth’s GreatCommons,
for Her Indigenous GreenCommunion.

Enough to be Dangerous

Do you know the concern?
“S/he knows just enough
about a through z
to be dangerous.”

I am uncomfortably familiar
with this analysis,
a weapon often wielded
from ivory towers
overly influenced by ideology
masquerading as theory
rooted in statistically measured experience,
severed from historical-cultural,
biological-neurological indigenous context.

Even so,
one feeling I am sure of
my own too robust expertise
is Intolerance.

And, now I am discovering
I have chosen to join a community
with a multicultural intention
to embrace,
or at least tolerate,
all souls,
all species,
all living systems
except those deemed too intolerant,
too wounded,
for multicultural health
as a resonant indicator
of economic and political wealth.

We are exclusively intolerant
of intolerance
because we would provide safe sanctuary
to all souls,
especially victims of monoculturing intolerance,
of win/lose economic and political supremacy,
strategy
gamesmanship.

I find a tension here
between unconditional love
and lacking sufficient curiosity
and courage
to discuss shared values
and disvalues
with those too defensive
too hurt
too lost
too conservative
to tolerate intolerably queer me,
to tolerate the alien Other.

This reactionary intolerance
of intolerant prejudice
bigotry
often straight white male supremacy,
feels like further breeding ground
for misunderstanding,
segregation,
mutual divestment business as usual,
more win/lose devolutionary anger and fear,
more potential violence,
hate,
war

More egocentric privilege
rather than universal ecosystemic love power

Actively hoping to cooperatively uncover win/win
polycultural resolutions
resiliently curious
and courageous
when in the presence of win/lose competitions
intolerant of active hope
for restoring peace
by retiring retributively inflicted punishment
shunning
non-communication
anti-communion
for past sins of intolerance.

CoHabitating Peace

A sustained mystery for more long-term resilient cohabitation
is how to exchange high tolerance for ambiguity,
with, and not for, active curiosity about both/and ambiguity,
vulnerable dipolarity both/anding transparent bipolarity,
merging win/lose stuckness
in our emerging collective illusion
of ego-identity’s fundamental
sacred
monocultural autonomy

Autonomy of identity
as if both necessary and sufficient
before humane/divine multicultural interdependence
could grow more robustly possible,

Rather than this Other historical way around
healthy yinterdependent yindivid-yangation
prior to egalitarian sacred identity
actually co-passioning
healthy dualistic potentiality,

While still in EarthMother’s
ego/ecofeminist sanctuary
of integrity,
secular/sacred co-passioning Womb.

A more sustained mystery of more long-term resilient cohabitation
is exchanging high tolerance for ambiguity,
with, and not for, active curiosity about co-acclimating
trans-regenerations of nurturing timelessness.
