Today Is Different

Today is assiduously
religiously different,
as I review our local RiverEast News.

Every week
Mike Thompson writes a solid Editorial
in a compelling voice.
I expect to only add
my hearty sacred
happy secular “Amen!”

Our nearly fearless Editor and Chief
calls for political “ACCOUNTABILITY!”
like so many others on bipolar Left through Right,

And those still hanging on
with battered nails
to quickly fading dipolar
in-between HAVE-NOT
anthrocultured primacy race
and HAVE
cash class
co-empathic consciousness
that renters and owners need each other
like borrowers and banks
yet feel as competitively apart
as victims and predators,
droning prey and patriarchal colonizers

Insurrectionists,
nihilistic HAVE-NOT anarchists
military industrialized
invade our sacred capitalistic space,
so now, I read,
“there needs to be
accountability.”

I do not disagree, BUT…
AND would you not agree
our shared future will be healthier,
and co-investing wealthier,
if predators claim their own responsibility
for exceeding civil and civic
democratically cooperative authority
through more slow-grown discernments

Rather than passionate placards
preferring hot
and sometimes armed
debate
drama
extraction
capture
imprisonment
enslavement
debacle
bacchanalia,
angry selfie Theater

Fueled by manufactured Bud
more than ancient cannabis buds.

Our angry Editor
lashes nationalistic Republicans out of town,
especially the transcendently unEarthly
Vice President Pence,
praying for “healing” and “unity,”
and not even close enough
for government work
invoking a sacred benediction
through end of term ACCOUNTABILITY!
of blind justice,
thus retributively more equitable
punishing non-mercy
served against irresponsible
angry words
and violently desecrating actions.

Interesting,
I also hear President Biden
passionately praying for “healing” and “unity”
Unity
Unity,
and more silent about punishing justice
held up to public scrutiny
of LeftBrain dominant, Accountability–
not so much RightBrain felt prominent,
CoResponsibility.

Retributive justice of Accountability
is for punishing
the autonomously guilty.

Restorative justice of CoResponsive
Responsibility
is for healing,
and resiliently lasting,
peaceful,
healthy interdependent unity

By divesting of autonomously unEarth-responsive
economic anthrocentric capital gains
and politically privileged responsibility
of patriarchal
capitalistic
military-industrialized
corporate empowered monoculturing supremacy,
anthro-irresponsible intent.

Why is it,
Mr. Editor,
I wonder wander
as I moondrift flow along,

Why is it more important
or realistic
or essential to punish
before moving on to heal:
to set apart and imprison,
to judge
and shame and blame,
before reconsidering unity
through faithful
multicultural dialogue?

This military-first preference
seems to reflect Chief RedCommander
inciting rhetoric
echoing Hitler’s strengths
of hate and violence
and deadening threat
of powerful justice
developing full-throttle
exclusively through our patriotic
overpowering position
of autocratic STRENGTH!

To hold the Alien EcOther
revengefully Accountable.

Actually,
as I dimly recall
my own unfortunate experiences with punishment
and healing warmth restoring healthier wealth
of personal political empowering responsibility,
nonviolent communication
includes inviting proactive practice
of compassionate therapy
through restorative justice,
pursuing multicultural pace
of EarthPeace,

More polytheistically matriarchal
than monoculturally
LeftBrain soulless solely Accountable
for missing opposite experience opportunities
more typically therapeutic
and conveniently,
even co-responsibly,
CoOperative Truths
building healthy democratic Trust.

I’m thinking I learn more powerfully
not from Strength, but uncapitalized weakness,
fluidity,
both/and nuance,
empowering eco-political responsibility
and disempowering ego-individual accountability,
publicized felony revenge
and misdemeanor scorn

Distract from wider experience
deeper Light
by exploring my own disconnected woundedness
evolving lonely feelings of win/lose mortal brokenness

Past failures in responsive civil commitment
to cooperatively hold
and cherish democratic sacred space
at home,
reading the weekly paper,
and WholeEarth abroad,

Rather than my boldest debates
to strongly compete in high risk
armed and violent communication confrontations,

Alarming punitive messages
using win/lose weapons of strong obfuscation,
which are irresponsible,
demanding that EcOthers be held apartheid Accountable
for lack of healthy healing,
cooperative unity,
co-governing skills for building
resiliently healing
trust-struggling
ongoing inclusive dialogue
relationships,

Religiously essential
to any healthy democratic
natural and/or spiritual experience,
constitutional
and/or familial,
anthro-centric
and/or eco-systemic health restoring,
globally political
and/or personal cooperative economics
of ecofeminist
green newLeft/ancientRight deal
co-responsible
resilient
and polypathically resonant
Ego/Earth co-investment

In a different
universally healing
unitarian tomorrow.

Freedom for Global Compassion

Seminar Reflections

Liberal Lovers
invited a 2020 Trump follower
to lead them
to his personal straight white patriarchal trust
in strength
and privileged anthrocentric freedoms
to extract Earth’s wealth as needed
wanted
comforting
and entertaining
and convenient probably at least,
or even at most,
for this generation
of supremely intelligent
LeftBrain dominant
EarthOwners.

When asked where I find myself
debating against his eco-political logic
I had no strategic plan
or well-integrated clue

Why strongly resilient FreedomFrom
crippling environmental
and social capital restrictions
is not a resonantly sustainable balance,

An error in EarthJustice
resulting from discontinuous independence
of ego-individual liberty
to discredit
and divest from
evolving multicultural interdependence
of all multigenerational revolving life systems.

Just as exile from interdependence
may produce restrictions apart from multicultural
compassionate communication

As intellectual property apartheid
does not feel like freedom toward health
sustainably engaged in mature
well-capitalized CommonWealth responsibility,
nor freely invested in egalitarian dignity,
nor automatically re-investing
in democratic trusting healthcare futures.

Freedom to invest in healthy happiness
and freedom from monocultural diversions into sadness
cannot preclude each Other’s continued potentiality
to be known
and felt
as competitive
predative foreign devils
and/or
cooperative
multiculturing co-invested
liberally loving interdependent EarthTribe lives

Happy/sad depolarizing
regenerative/degenerative bilateral revolutions
of lively/deadly
freedom to multiculturally
Yintegrally invest
while enjoying freedom from monoculturing
Anthro-OverPowering
divestments
away from ZeroZone
health/wealth co-responsive
Earth

Suggesting,
now that I have had a moment to reflect,
that Yang’s anthro-freedom strength to
repress Yin’s multicultural free-flowing wisdom
works out better for Yang/Yin resilient health balance
than LeftBrain ego-patriarchal dominant monoculturalism
v RightBrain ecofeminist prominent
deep learning
listening
communing within multiculturalism

ReMembering neuro-sensory creolization
reconnections
compassionate re-ligions
restorations
transubstantiations
liberating communions, given and received
freely harmonic
resiliently redundant communications

Outside v Inside Strategy

When Donald Trump
ran against very Presidential Obama,
that he did not look
or sound like a win/win public sector leader,
or even commit to expanding healthy democracy,
worked well for him.

His favorite public relations strategy
is to win first place coverage on the evening news
by whatever entertaining means available.

This helped him win the electoral college
playing to a Christian RightWing
and straight white patriarchal-capitalist privileged
left-brain military-industrialized
win/lose monoculturally dominant
Base

As an inexperienced
entrepreneurially successful entertainer,
a wealthy self-made star,
a corporate-savvy business manager
ready for the big disempowering liberals screen

As viewed by those hungry for anyone
who would recite the RightWing mantra
that Right to Life
does not imply
Right to Public/Private Health,
regenerative
cooperative well-being
of all sacred organic LifeSystems,

Liberal and conservative
and all multiculturing varieties
of lovers and compassioners,
saints and sinners,
in between

Which is more of a right-brain
interdependent
both/and holistic
Holy Spirit way
of revisioning 20/20 bicameral life
revisiting mature
experienced
co-empowering
co-enlightening
bilateral Truths.

Anyway,
Trump’s strategy
backfires as re-issued
from the White House in 2020
now more than ever
dominating lead story national news
still looking alarmingly unpresidential.

Make America Great Again
by disempowering Liberals again
and by Grabbing Earth’s Balls and Tits Again
looks and feels tarnished
swampish,
yet another rich entitled
straight white patriarchal
scumbag politician
living in a powerful mansion
with nothing to say
about my mental/physical health,
nothing to support healthy family life,
no clue about affordable health care,
denying the biggest crisis of global history,
our international health emergency
also known as climate warming,
no ideas about empowering multiculturally healthy democracy
rooted in public trust-governed cooperative win/win systems,
no messages for those seeking natural or spiritual health,
bereft of any hope
for ecological or theological safety.

His biggest asset for the 2016 presidential election
is now his deepest
and widest liability
for 2020 re-election
as a RealTime BiCamerally EcoTherapeutic President,

Who sounds
and looks
and possibly smells
and touches
and feels democratically health-wealthy
Presidential;
not quite so greasy fast-food swampish,
grabby,
greedy,
narcissistic;
more of a fatuous clown
than a facetious entertainer.

Loving Two As One

awareness and thinking
are to Physical

internal feeling/external touch associations

multicultural health

have nothing to do with,

inside impressed
as also outside already manifest

in tension with not yet premanifest
with co-passionate communing sufficiency,
active curiosity,

I further believe
these integral flowing double-yin = yang variables
are integrally unrelated
and unrelatable sameness,
incommensurable
to strong synergetic Yang binomial
bilateral
bicamerally redundant communications

Because they are one historic

already at mirrored

More of a mutually positive correlational metaphor
of dipolar contrast
than a competitive negative correctional
bipolar analogy
between rightbrain sacred theology
of interdependent democracy
and leftbrain secular ecology
of multicultural communication.

Multicultural enlightenment
co-invites non-violently communicating

Uncomfortable with anthropocentric
theologically verbalized sense of privilege
as a monoculturally divine elitist

The Self-Invested Boss

Straight from the New York Times,
The Macho Appeal of Donald Trump:
We saw him being a boss

A take charge kinda’ narcissistic guy;
just the kind of win/lose business capitalist
to Make America Even More Competitive Again,

Especially if you have always enjoyed
StraightWhiteMale privilege

And never sworn to defend
a democratic health care agenda
for the well-being of all the people
and plants
all over the planet
at all times,
in all federally-associated
and invested places,
sacred spaces.

Others saw and heard
a self-invested capital-privileged
narcissistic Boss,
of an old
and extremely tiring supremacist vintage,
who never could be a successful multicultural business manager
in the private sector,
much less a successful multicultural democratic facilitator
of public health and safety information
in our nation’s
and our regenerative Earth’s
best and brightest
cooperatively facilitated eco-political
resiliently robust interests.

Would you want him to be your boss?
Your dad?
Your teacher?
Your preacher?
Your mental and/or physical health care provider?
Your economic prophet?
Your family’s political co-empowerment advisor?
Your banker?
Your fearless leader
so full of fear
of anyone
not a wealthy
hopelessly secular and profane
competitive real estate marketer
and straight white male privileged owner
like him?

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
win/win
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
interdependent
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;
yes.

And,
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,
domestic
or international,
private
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,
traumatized
feminized
marginalized
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
cause.
You invite the Court to question
whether anyone is capable of sufficient Trust
toward resiliently democratic peace,
internal as external,
to actively communicate egalitarian
restorative
healthy democratic choice-making,
Facing toward compassion,
facilitating win/win disciplines,
expanding ego-recentering non-violence
therapeutically mediating ecosystemic compassion.

Designed to win/win strategize with,

Some individuals may be born

Win/win reset for a 20/20 turquoise millennium
just beyond green/yellow current depolarizing horizons
of most non-red Others

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

In other bubbling

Turquoise ecofeminists are imprisoned,

Reproduced

GreenDemocratic Health Images

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

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

Notice
your democratic bodymind
is an open
holistic
ego/eco-centering
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,
capitalistic
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
organic
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
spirit/nature
sacred/secular
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
plants
places
and planets
cannot begin with degenerative violence
without ending as militant predation,

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

Rather than roots in “retributive justice”
revenge
punishment
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

Shameless,
we admit
living Earth chauvinism.

Our home
and favorite planet,
better, not necessarily bigger,
in our collective opinion,
than all other revolving planets,
stars,
suns,
satellites,
moons
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

Together
regathering celebration of life
in all Earth’s majestic sacred forms
and revolving patterns,
rhythms of dark
then light,
outside
then inside,
before
then after,
being
been
becoming

Shameless,
guilt free,
born again,
eternal living Earth
con-celebrants.
