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.

A NonViolent Glory Prayer

Share with me
this day,
this night,
what will feed my neighbors
as my hungry self.

Forgive me
my theocratic excesses
as I forgive my ancestors
for arguing anthro-hubrisisms.

Lead me
into Earth’s compassion.

Deliver me
into full bicameral consciousness.

For our wealthy bodies
are our healthy minds
eco-political power
as neuro-psychological grace.

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.

Sharing Is Caring

Yesterday
I heard someone say
To cure police
and military violence,
we need a NonTrumpian change of culture.

Sometimes revolutionary changes
include conserving feminist elements
of ancient healing cultures;

Intent to reward multicultural inclusion
rather than hanging on to patriarchal
and capitalistic monocultural supremacy–
a culture of exclusion,
excommunication,
and extraction from Earth’s communal nature
and spirit.

Sometimes we need to restore justice
and peace to our own soil
and souls
before we are ready to grow
healthy seeds of primal relationship,
healthcare,
compassion,
into wealthy win/win Paradise.

I have also heard it said,
If you show mercy
to a sociopath,
And if you merely shun
an imperialistic narcissist,
you will only fuel future selfish outrage.

But, I have lived with oppositional defiance
neurologically hard-wired
for adolescent megalomania
and know that punishment,
revenge,
violence,
anger,
fear,
and hatred fuel further sociopathology

Not fertile healing warmth
of transparent and vulnerable attachment,
healthy curiosity,
abundant care,
nonviolent communication,
compassion,
gratitude for opportunities
to explore win/win polycultural outcomes
ecologically healthy
and communally wealthy
erupting into global healing
theological experience of grace.

My daughter
with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
listens by the hour
to a kids song,
“Sharing is caring.
Be kind to everyone.”

But, we train our police,
and our soldiers
and teach our political party
and economic investors
the opposite
retributive
competitive
hostile
paternalistic
capitalistic
win/lose
zero-sum
monoculturing shadow
of ecofeminist multicultural truth
and beauty,
nature
and spirit.

The false peace of tolerating mutual win/lose hostility
is a sin of freedom’s omission
to reconnect with EarthBeauty’s greater gracious half.

Visiting the Buddha

We were visited by a baby
yesterday.

It felt good to bow
into her glittery brown eye level,

To speak of whatever came to mind
which was mostly about her truth
and blossoming beauty

Knowing she would not judge
and would listen
patiently
as long as I might care
to continue our song
of aging story.

Her response,
to continue sleeping
or to smile
while feeling
feeding eye to eye
mutual warmth

This is what I remember
wanting most
to speak about,

To remember
on this Memorial Day

Visited not yet by a victim
of war
but by a wise innocent
for peace.

Integrity’s Keys

“The key to finding a happy balance
in modern lives
is simplicity.”
Sogyal Rinpoche, Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

A health wealthy key
to finding empowering balance
is synergetic simplicity.

Cooperation is simple
where competition is more complex.

Synergy restores peace;
dissociative energy punishes past injustices.

Complex synergetic patterns are beautiful;
chaotic entropic enervation is darkly dissonant.

Synergetic simplicity invites integrity;
capitalistic competitions consume
and produce self v other unraveling.

Integrity empowers further courageous curiosity;
dissonance disturbs past aggressive discouragement.

A wealthy health power
exploring integrity
embraces compassionate simplicity.

Golden Tongues and Silver Bullets

Freedom of speech
is less about freedom from suppression
when more about freedom toward mutual dialogue,
cooperatively held impression
to co-invest in active democratic hope.

Perhaps this is why
First Amendment non-violent communication values
grow in heart-felt significance
as Second Amendment rights to bear violent arms
recede in multicultural salience
safety
security
sanity.

This causal hypothesis
feels further supported
by First Amendment’s second part,
freedom to peacefully assemble,

More likely peace found through cooperative dialogue
than lost, again, through ballistic debate,
whether presidential or non-presidential,
featuring the sound of my own heated voice
drowning active hopes of all others present
here and now
longing to be heard
and known
reminded we belong First together

Not Second
to bear arms and words,
weapons against each other.

Having the right
does not make it right
to be violently
and egotistically wrong.

Strategic Ignorance

The best preventative and remedial antibiotic for narcissism,

whether internal or external, or both,

is to strategically ignore their aggression.

Do not feed or water bullies.

Pretend you cannot see or hear or even smell them,

and those parts of yourself,

internal voices,

most predative.

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.

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
pets
plants
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
transparent
vulnerable
healthy future

In a wide and deep in-between room
estate
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
dissonantly
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.
