On Religious Integrity

Let us begin
by explicitly undressing
what may have been
implicitly held
multicultural feelings:

  1. For the overwhelming masses
    of teeming and scheming
    healthy human adults,
    and especially adolescents,
    peak sexual experiences
    are also our peak
    lifetime
    spiritual experiences
    of compassion
    co-passion
    shared orgasmic passion.
  2. Our elder right hemispheres do not,
    because they cannot,
    distinguish between spiritual
    and mental
    health,
    brain
    and body wealth.

With these two declared assumptions,
please join in revisiting
public sector sensitive issues
about constitutionally protected
religious freedom
in the USA,
and probably in other
monotheistic
left hemisphere dominant
cultures,
making privileged spaces
for straight
male sensory places.

Religious expression
is rooted
in spiritual/mental
healthy felt connected
safe experience
of win/win nonviolent communication,
compassionate communion
sacred memories.

Family businesses
and corporate executive boards
and healthcare professionals
are constitutionally allowed
to make choices
inconsistent with our own
interdependent spiritual/mental peak
win/win
panentheistic organic experience

But, such a profound lack of integrity
does not help us develop
a more universally democratic
and multicultural frame
of spiritual/mental health care,
well-being
prosperity
resonance
resilience.

Whether nonviolence practitioners
can be constitutionally obligated
to pay war and military,
violence and win/lose aggression,
consumptive capitalist exploitation,
and weapons development and production
taxes
and yet retain meaningful constitutional protection
for spiritual freedom of co-passionate conscience
becomes left brain cognitively complex,
if not downright chaotic.

Whether faith-based communities
can continue to be tax-exempt
feels as clear as democratic
multiculturally celebrated
separation of nonviolent religious expression
and nation-state defensive affiliation

Why a minute of silent
compassion-focused spiritual/mental experience
feels both constitutionally appropriate
and healthy democracy useful
for opening self/other governance meetings,
team huddles,
graduations and commencements
from and into great
and even smaller public transitional events,
bolstering spiritual/mental health resilience
of shared trust consciousness.

Whether inclusive multicultural
non-supremacist religious symbols,
such as a PeaceDove,
a Chalice of communal hope,
a messianic Manger scene,
and a Menorah,
can be installed in public spaces
to evoke spiritual/mental health experiences
and not toxic memories
of homophobic,
racist,
sexist victimization,
trauma,
and chronic stress experiences,
may depend on how inclusive
and compassionate
our own childhood
and adolescent
peak social health experiences
were celebrated,
revered,
honored,
appreciated.

Whether spiritual/mental health education systems
can effectively exclude
non-supremacist expressions
of positive faith
in peak sensory experiences
in the classroom
may depend on whether we believe
a healthy democracy
is rooted in trust
or in capitalism’s competitive
mutual mistrust.

Whether faith-based non-profits
can apply on equal egalitarian footing
with secular corporate privileged organizations
for compassion regenerating
governing grants
to increase spiritual/mental health experiences,
may depend on whether we are remembering
good faith peak experiences
or bad faith competitive
fear of losing out
bullying experiences.

Whether healthy win/win
faith-based communities
and individuals can,
and even must,
advocate for public policies,
including integral health care,
that are consistent with their membership’s
most personal spiritual/mental health experience,
or not so much

These issues
and peak spiritual experience concerns
about loss of healthy wealth
also pertain to freedom
of nonviolent communication speech.

Compassionate communication,
win/win freedom
of resonant
primal inter-relationship,
is the fundamental healthy democracy
trust experience
on which all other integral rights
to spiritual/mental health
are rooted,
wombed,
incubated,
rewoven,
morphed,
regenerated.

On the other hand,
if we begin with different,
more dualistic
and monotheistic assumptions
about this relationship between synergetic religious
and peak spiritual/mental experience
of everyday sacred connection,
then our constitutional conclusions
may vehemently
and irreconcilably
and dogmatically
differ.

Strategic Considerations

Maybe it’s just me, hanging around with nonviolent communication students and teachers too much. But,

Always the big, “BUT”

But,…maybe AND is more appropriate.

And, if Putin’s big concern is to spoil Ukraine’s hunger to join NATO, then a full military assault seems maybe counterproductive, killing women and children, bombing bread lines and schools. Wouldn’t that kind of thing be why Ukraine is looking for NATO alliance, because of concerns that Putin and his overpaid Generals might forget that carrots are more effective than sticks when you are trying to persuade less wealthy, and more hungry for safety, people that your big stick next door isn’t an unfortunate event threat to their carrot crops and tops, and all those other greens and blues and even reds; who seem to have a peculiar affinity for ballistic sticks, even when spoons of sugar are so much less expensive, less damaging to well-manicured nails, and landscapes. The important classy stuff making up a delicious series of more fortunate events.

When I was trying to persuade those bratty neighbor children that they need not gang up against my less-affluent kids, it didn’t occur to me to lob grenades over the fence, instead of suggesting a pizza party. But maybe that was mainly because I was hungry too, for food, and health, and safe nonviolence.

Momentous ReTrainStitions

Icons are funny things,
she thought.

Heaven feels like a warm light circle
when we are thriving
and more like a cold dark triangle
of weaponed tipping points
against me

above the mortally terrifying bottom

Ancient right-brained heaven

Violence Separates Us

My senior minister just now
pointed out and in toward Washington
aware of this extraordinary Time.

Violence separates us
from the ordinary
every time,
she speaks from her own experience.

I quickly agree.

Then, notice ways I do not agree
if violence denotes
feelings of violation.

Violence does not separate military time
from ordinary civilian time;
we call that chronic stress disorder,
mental problems,
spiritual issues,
weaponized opposition.

Violence does not separate
poor people
marginalized people
ignored, neglected, and abused species,
animals,
trees,
rivers,
oceans,
soil,
air,
Earth,
from ordinary
Business As Usual Time.

This statement reminds me
of two opposing experiences
in my own life,
white privilege,
where violence is what happens to other people,
and gay male child,
all growed up in a homo-hate environment,
where ordinary violence was about what I deserved
if I were caught
being me.

We want violence to be the exception
to cooperative economics,
nonviolent communication,
restorative EarthJustice politics,
empowerment,
enlightenment experiences
of multicultural healthy wealth,
for all EarthCreatures
and living ecosystems.

Still,
on this dark night
it feels hard to painfully remember
that violence is more exceptional
to ordinary experience
for some Haves
as compared to HaveNots.

Rome v Home

It is not necessarily established as True
that all capitalist
and patriarchal red roads
lead back to EmpireBuilding Rome

Ancient Rome as original win/lose supremacist Home
unveils no more than an intuitive health preference
for global eco-political win/win consciousness
as both ecologically True progress
way to restore win/win home
and Beauty’s economic co-redeeming GreenWealth
of peaceful bull-curved
syncopating bicameral heart-beat

and in matriarchal thrivalist cooperative rest

In local communities

on both up and down hill
thrive and survive bilateral pulses,
best day ecological green commitments
and worst red days of egocentric challenges

Inviting further journeys back

that all cooperative

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.

Back the Black and Blue

What do you do
when you’re a black cop
at a Back The Blue protest
with a Black Lives Matter
counter-protest
in front of you,
to left and right,
and possibly pursuing your rear
and career?

Which direction
does your identity choose,
if not to feel troubled
by a false choice
either way?

Is there some platform,
strange principle,
peculiar position
among Mattering Political Black Lives
that you cannot have
a healthy vocation
while carrying a ballistic weapon
and continue being a Black Life
in good and valued standing?

Or, to Back my Blue,
must I succumb
to StraightWhitePatriarchal Privilege?

Are there any color boxes
still widely open
and deeply inviting?

Can I not aspire to become
a non-binary bound,
non-white,
ecofeminist for EarthRights
to health and safety
and peace
and restoring green justice?

Recognizing
and appreciating
only Earth as Master,
Mistress,
Goddess,
Sacred Eden.

Discarding old school memories
of enslaved custody of imprisoned eyes
and ears for hearing,
suppressing custody of healthy taste
and fragrantly smelled beauty,
of cooperative touch
and globally compassionate feeling,

Regarding green lives matter schools
and reschooled deep learning
full 20/20 ownership
of Black and Blue
and Green proud lives
for multicultural mediation.

NonViolent Communication

NonViolent Communication
might become more
democratically and multiculturally accessible
as NonDissonant Communication,

Affectively and cognitively bilateral
and, at least potentially,
multiculturally polyempathic,

contextually intelligent,

Articulated more positively
as Confluent Communication

About experiences of communion
and anti-communion
and miscommunion,

Zero Sourced Humane ReSource

If we come from ZeroSource,
secularly known as OneSource secularly Light,
and sacredly as DivineEnergy,
we still may not conclude
we are interchangeable ReSources.

Life forms interdependent
are not simply interchangeable,
exchangeable
like loose change,
habitual everyday whatevers;
unlike guns and violence
because we have emergent
development,
because we are regenerate organisms;
not gradually deteriorating machines.

We inherit from Source
and we inhabit relationships
further evolving ego’s heartened warmth
toward light
and divested shunning of disheartened cold
away from DivineEnergy.

This trail of tears
in joy and sadness
begins with EarthSource,
and ends with EcoCentering
compassionate ReSourcing
ReConnecting
ReCommunicating
ReStorative ReGenerators.

Some aware of ReLigioning,
and perhaps the better half
not so much.
