ReStoring EarthPeace

Now that Restorative Justice
has raised her Gaian ecological purpose,
to restore multiculturing peace
in polyphonic
polypathic Turquoise Eden,
how do you continue to justify
a win/lose Retributive Justice evolutionary philosophy
of law and moral order
as contributing to healthy
regeneratively revolutionary democracy?

Asked the ecosystemic Judge
of UnitingNations jurisdiction.

Restorative Justice
was never intended to be effective
where either victims
or predators
are unwilling,
often incapable,
of re-engaging in cooperative
win/win dialogue,
egalitarian discernment
in-between Trust
and MisTrust
and hostile DisTrust.

So you argue
win/win regenerative assumptions
of natural/spiritual creatures
are not safely,
and not realistically, accessible
for all the healing dreams and purposes
endemic to our Gaian muse of Justice?

An insufficiency
of experience
with healthy democratic peace;

how will continuing to primally rely on win/lose retribution,
where victims and a healthy society
are presumed to Win
by punishing criminals
and Loser scoflaws,
lead us toward this noble,
and globally multicultural, goal
of achieving healthy democratic peace
for all Earth’s regenerative creatures?

Retributive Justice
is the State’s weapon
to protect the Common Good
from further injustice,
a deterring threat;
not a tool
or medicine
toward an actively remediating peace,
or international,
or public resonant health.

How do you respond
to peace therapeutic win/win possibilities
of multiculturally mediated dialogue
to bring together victim compassion
with wrongdoer remorse,
without hyperactive threat of criminalization;
As compared to current Retributive Justice outcomes,
case loads,
imprisoned and exploited populations
of marginalized misfits,
disproportionately poor
and dark-skinned?

Traditional patriarchal systems
do not over-invest
in democratic health
or rights
of our predative
and victimized,
raped and pillaged citizens,
as these are not well-established
in win/win cooperative investments.

I’m not sure
arguing for further patriarchal
competitive win/lose capital-investments
helps your justice through win/lose punishment
You invite the Court to question
whether anyone is capable of sufficient Trust
toward resiliently democratic peace,
internal as external,
to actively communicate egalitarian
healthy democratic choice-making,
Facing toward compassion,
facilitating win/win disciplines,
expanding ego-recentering non-violence
therapeutically mediating ecosystemic compassion.


Turquoise Pond

Earth’s turquoise pond faces,
green life
blue reflecting

Re-membering under each calm surface
re-ligioning disparate
dispolarizing themes
of Spiral EcoPolitical Dynamics,

Surrounding forest factors,
time flowing forward
and re-connecting backward,
spirited and well-natured space,
health-reconditioning place,
win/win ego/ecosystemic democratic
developing pace

Awakens EarthHumane empowering systems
within curious individuals
living amid courageous global multicultures

Designed to win/win strategize with,
and co-acclimate to,
co-articulating BlueHealth/GreenWealth
calm-faced repositions.

Some individuals may be born
deviantly blue/green
in and out
through timeless spiraling time

apparently placid,
yet full
ripe mindbodies

Win/win reset for a 20/20 turquoise millennium
just beyond green/yellow current depolarizing horizons
of most non-red Others
human and not not quite extinct
instincts of non-violent thoughts
with eco-feeling climates.

In this best of health/wealth EarthTime,
positive psychopolitical feminists
are revered as non-violent bodhisattvas
and matriarchal messiahs,
20/20 peace-revolutionary visionaries.

In other bubbling
autocratic red-dominant times,
Turquoise ecofeminists are imprisoned,
pimped out,

for a healthier
calming wealthier
pond-faced place
in Turquoise Timeless Time.


GreenDemocratic Health Images

Imagine your healthiest body
is a democratic
self/other empowering organism

most nutritionally,
nurtured by an also open,
dynamic win/win preferential,
revolving planetary universe,
in many sacred times and places
also known as MotherEarth.

your democratic bodymind
is an open
co-invested re-centering,
co-acclimating interior and exterior
bilaterally systemic infrastructure
for democratic health,
rooted in mutual trust.

If your brain is in charge,
this is a democratic charge,
a coordinating
complexly inter-communicating
organic whole system responsibility,
leaving no individual organ or health function
irresponsibly behind.

Not an autocratic,
from above,
hierarchically patriarchal,
head-mind over felt-body matter,
unilateral authority
capable of long-term
win for leftbrain dominant mind
only at the cost of a lose
for rightbrain democratic
interdependently felt nature/spirit
body/mind bicameral communion intelligence

Bilaterally ego/eco communing communication
looking for win/win neurological
whole system
democratic resolution of health issues,
pathologically autocratic cancers,
cognitive/affective predations,
viral dissonance,
rabid and rogue behaviors,
win/lose anthropocentric ego-inflations,
lose/lose terrors and global humiliations,
rather than win/win wonders
and sacred awe of Earth’s resiliently healthy
democratic regenerativity.

Now, recall important political statements
influencing your own development:

A family is not a democracy.
A classroom is not a democracy.

Both implied “should not be” statements
almost certainly true
in your own predominant civil empowerment/disempowerment
formative experience,

Embracing win/lose
either-me/or-you competitions
between empowered teachers and preachers
and not yet mature and experienced
sometimes you win,
usually you don’t,
children and adolescents
and young adults,

Many of whom,
especially those poorer and darker,
will graduate into military-industrializing subcultures,
where patriarchal
leftbrain dominant autocracy
of commanders
over enslaved
and rented both/and repowering bodies
become reduced to untrusting tools
and win/lose
high risk strategic weapons.

These young left-brain autocratic adults
will certainly not be gathering rich Trust experience
in democratic dialogue
over autocratic debate
about the weakness
of win/win EarthJustice restoring democracy.

So, is it possible to hear?

Families, like competitive classrooms,
intending young life healthy empowerment,
often autocratically disempower

An economic and political warning;
A challenge to overcome not-yet mature democracy
rooted in experience of robust cooperative Trust,
rather than an unintended civics lesson
in rabid leftbrain dominant autocracy,
as if capitalism
were patriarchally inevitable
as racial
and sexist
and homophobic
and xenophobic
and anthropocentric apartheid.

As if mutually mistrusting
competition for individual investment power
were democratically healthier
than win/win cooperative models
for shared mind/body
eco/ego-systemic wealth,

Resonant trust,
resilient love,
trusting compassion

Imagining our healthiest bodies
are democratic
self/other empowering
Earth responsible organisms.


Healthy Democracy

Democratically effective governance
of people
and planets
cannot begin with degenerative violence
without ending as militant predation,

Which does not sound like healthy
and cooperative co-invested democracy
even to a child
familiar with playground bullies.

Rather than roots in “retributive justice”
religiously licit order,
healthy democracy stems from restorative win/win peace,
multicultural nature spirits
and bio-systemic sacred wisdom,

At least interdependent wisdom enough
to avoid militaristic patriarchal predation
and pollution
of all that Earth holds sacred.


Shameless Chauvinism

we admit
living Earth chauvinism.

Our home
and favorite planet,
better, not necessarily bigger,
in our collective opinion,
than all other revolving planets,
orbiting through four dimensioned images
flowing maps
expanding frames
dynamic paradigms

More nurturing to us
than all stale constellations combined,
unchanging orthodoxy,
staid stillness
of an inflexible compass pointing out
prophecies of light versus inside dark,
warm life against cold dead unturnatives.

Our love of life on Earth,
like revolving regenerations ourselves,
begins with noticing Her colors
stellar blue and primordial green
with flickering highlights of flaming red,
bold yellow,
burnt orange,
blustering purple and violet,
bashful pink horizons in transition,

All harmonic signs elevating life
from dead stardust
and flowing baptismal water.

Humane Earth worship
includes, on better resonant days,
all communing EarthTribes
living within multiculturing song
and liturgical dance
of wealthing health,
celebrating well-being,
resilient being well

regathering celebration of life
in all Earth’s majestic sacred forms
and revolving patterns,
rhythms of dark
then light,
then inside,
then after,

guilt free,
born again,
eternal living Earth


Permacultural Grace

I wonder what it means
we are a multicultural species
still capable of waging war,
employing ballistic terrorists,
investing in capitalism’s ruthless game
of surgical monopoly
to become patriarchs of bloodied mountains,

This feels related,
perhaps co-arising,
with inability to distinguish
an ecology of natural grace
from an efficient economy of spiritual just rewards,

Ego’s self-righteous returns
for prudent win/lose strategic investment
in owning Earth,
pieces of the property pie,
and renting human secularized resources
by the mundane weekday hour,
or contractual time-clock year

Leaving behind jubilee years
hopes and tears
and sabbaths
for those naturally deprived
and spiritually poor;
meat to feed future real-world war machines.

Victories and defeats in war,
strategic aggression against maligned characters,
colonizing predation,
political and religious monopolization
of win/lose investments
in overpowering persuasion–
These can all be earned,
but not graced.

natural/spiritual hybrid wealth,
These are signs and wonders,
powers and co-arising principalities
of wondrous grace,
and cannot be earned
or reductively unlearned.

What could be evolving purpose
in outrageously degenerative wars,
deliberate intent to terrorize
and counter-terrorize,
oscillating cycles of anger and fear,
evil humors
and cynical financial investments
against each sacred Other,
against Earth’s habitual health?

What could be revolving meaning
in ecosystemic wealth
of co-passionate powers,
religions of polycultural kindness,
multicultures of cooperative integrity,
Earth’s sacred economies
of permaculturing grace?




Power of Compassion

Most Republicans I’ve had the admittedly too infrequent pleasure
of listening to
assume financial wealth
is a greater public responsibility
and opportunity
than very much secondary social wealth
of healthy relationships,
resonant and democratically inclusive resilience.

And, Green Democrats
seem to share a world view
giving primal priority to values of social wealth,
multicultural co-investment
in people,
planetary inter-relationships,
global compassion.

So, a simple Thought Experiment
in competitive v cooperative relationality:

Imagine you are the ultimate capitalist success story
Playing a zero-sum win/lose game,
you always win,
so everybody else loses.
Eventually all financial assets,
natural resources,
human resources,
belong to you.
There remains no financial competitor left standing.
You are Earth’s omnipotent predator
of all economic value.

What happens to the value
of your capital liquid assets
at the moment you achieve
your perfect monopolistic success?
a perfect vacuum of other economic competitors?

Now, imagine social relationships
are our root source of value.

You develop cooperative relationships
that branch out into a global nurturing
and mutually nutritious network
of co-empowering healthy communication
until, finally, no one stands outside
your robust caring cooperative,
your multiculturally resonant social system.

At the exact moment of perfect synergetic interdependence,
when loneliness,
antagonistic lack of peaceful relationship
is nothing more than a pre-millennial memory,
what remains of your social,
and cooperative economic value?

How would you ever finish spending
and extending
your social capital co-investments?

So, when Republicans
and not-so-Green Democrats
sternly inform me
We need a solid Business Model
for a robust and resilient government
and for perpetual economic growth,
I am always curious to learn
which Business Model they have in mind,

Competitive win/lose? Like capitalism,
Or cooperative win/win?
Like sacred Earth communion.


AzaRiah’s Earth Requiem

He was too old
to speak of active hope
for ancient creamy dreams
not yet boldly told

Inviting curious homeless nomads
to imagine what we could become
if we were not yet brazenly born
into this time of tragic burning,
predicting hunger,
and coastal drowning nakedness.

Into this epic brown despair
AzaRiah was innocently born
within fading red shadows
of a crumbling
white cathedral.

She never knew an old Golden Era
of endless capital expansion
and monopolistic worship
defying GoldenRules
applied to those like her,
the least and blackest last
of Earth’s Golden SpaceTime Ratio.

AzaRiah’s stormy education
had no LeftBrain Ego v NotEco luxury
to ponder why 2D full moons
are also 4D revolving half-lit norms,

Why spatial nomials
predict temporal bilateral binomials,

Why positive polypaths
predict not not negative
polyphonic ultra-nonviolence,

Why binary Zero
fulfilling One bipolar Zone
predicts double-binary 0/1
wave-linear dipolar co-arising
win/win DNA resplendent Tone,

Why fractal-structured regenerativity
nativity predicts octave spiraling scales
of resonant
resilient non-degenerativity.

She was much too busy
singing with hurricane winds,
listening for flaming conflagrations
of reactionary hate,
inviting still small ecofeminist circles
to dance again with GrandMother Moon
in compassion’s silent storms,
self and other recreating
perpetual healthcare perception

Belonging in grateful silence
where her grandfathers
spoke with terrified tears
of Earth’s great loud longing.


Reasoned Bicameral Balance

A rational frame of reference
for multicultural Taoism,
preferred by UniversalYang
and deferred with UnitarianYin,
regards experiences of systemic racism
and white straight male privilege
not only within each individual,
but within each community,
each faith community,
each ecopolitical energy-organizing sector
across this global EarthTribe.

This Taoistic reason/feeling approach
to big systemic issues
is more tipping point analytical,
probably inspired by polypathic bicameral Bucky Fuller,
And not so much monopolized by
micro-identity ego-afflicted elitism,
supremacy ideologies,
victimization debates
about how mine
is unfortunately bigger than yours.

Tao mindfulness
would prefer not to hear,
much less see or feel
Yang abusing
or even neglecting victimized Yin,
further Business As Usual
sometimes violent
Left hemisphere predations
or even verbal cultural misappropriations
depreciating healthy values
of cooperative Win/Win Right hemisphere resonance.

and other universal either/or egopatriarchal thinkers
and unitarian both/and ecofeminist feelers,
prefer the non-violent web
of secularYang with sacred Yintegrity,
bilaterally balanced
egopatriarchal competitive Type Yangs
fascinated with
and ceaselessly curious about
ecofeminist coopertive Type Yins,

Written dipolar co-arisingly
across the hemispheres of each heart,
each left with right non-violently winged
bi-hemispheric universal Soul,
and written across the outdoor climate geospheres
of Earth,
more multiculturally inclusive
on this larger stage
of healthy democratic energy,
more resilient polyculturing empowerment.


Empowering Integrity

Verbal microaggressions
[You are a liar!]
neglect non-violent humanity
as macroaggressions
[uninvited explosions with intent to kill],
rather far beyond verbal bullying,
physically retaliate against abusive inhumanity,
seldom too fastidious
about recognizing collateral damage
to people
planet Earth.

Critical mistrust
[how does this defend democracy?]
may yet remain mindful of Golden Rules,
active hope for our own
and Other’s cooperatively-owned
healthy future

In a wide and deep in-between room
State bounded by blind trust
unearned by prior relationship experience
[forgiving kleptocracy
while continuing to empower future theft]
are more typically associated with learned win/win memories
in prior associated categories of relationship
[I suppose censure could be merciful shaming]–
these become compassionate benefits,
compromised by doubt
[requiring apology to global victims
suffering from narcissistic abuse
of climate-healing powers].

But self-promoting oligarchy
leads more robustly toward active distrust of those who
and consistently play win/lose
[with well-being, health, and universal prosperity
stipulated goals of democratic constitutions]
apparently too comfortable with their own retributive
disempowering addictions
to see and hear and smell and taste
ecological and theological win/win health benefits
of restoring interdependent peace

For liberal love resilience
and conserving resonance
through cooperatively co-invested justice–

Non-violently impeaching win/lose compromises
against democracy’s multicultural health benefits
without lose/lose
micro- and macro-aggressive doubt
about what behaviors support healthier democracy
and what responses further feed pathological plutocracy.
