Spangled Star Banners

Oh say, did you notice
a national predative anthem?
Moving immediately
urgently,
without reflection of starlight
sent or received,

From waving flags predicting weapons
fueled by complexly masculine
emasculating
militarized corporate industries
of mutual defensive risks
against international cooperative opportunities
to coinvest

In smoke-filled dawns of manifest destiny
toward freedom for all
self-righteous straight white males
especially with a divine right
as Earth’s owners of enslaved
exploited property,
and home to the brave mercenaries
of death
and dying
and divestment technologies.

This anthem
is based on a patriarchal
powerful
psychological
and spiritual
and natural
and ecological
theological error.

Nowhere in our personal experience
nor our economic or political history
do we fight for freedom.

We do fight against oppression
but we flee,
apart or together, toward freedom.

Emigration is about exodus
toward hope and freedom.

Declaring wars,
expressing
and investing
our collective fears and angers,
These are about lands taken from reserved,
and feminized
and marginalized
and enslaved laborers,
forced immigrants into non-elite oppressions
of nationalism
patriarchalism
elite v non-elite dualism,
divides,
absence of win/win communication,
xenophobia
monoculturing suppressions
repressions

Where polypathic left with right win/win prominence
longs for polycultural confluence
rather than cognitive/affective dissonance,
flag waving
nationalistic predative anthems
sung empty-heartedly
with elitist left-brain opulence.

Praising EcoFeminist Climates

Economically comfortable civilians,
without militarized propaganda indoctrination,
without physical neglect or abuse experience,
without religious blame and shame intimidation,
may sustainably recognize themselves as safe,
while stressed about why they do not matter,
do not feel needed
or even uniquely loved and wanted.

We are not born this way.
When an infant
receives no environmental cues
providing chronic stress
about “Am I safe?”
then the right-brain’s, “Do I matter?”
remains dormant,
unquestioned
within early co-empathic win/win default.

The social
and political
and economic question of interdependent value
is assumed to be Positive
when the left-brain is resiliently satisfied
about ego-safety,
thrivability for the foreseeable future
rooted in rapidly growing environmental nutrition experience;
ecologically healthy,
more than pathological,
climates of enculturation.

I have learned,
especially during my win/lose adolescent exploration years,
but not only then,
that meeting all criteria for physical safety
speaks to the Negatives healthy mindbodies must avoid,
toxicities endemic to social-political risks
of left-brain dominant intelligence,
but only implicitly hints at co-arising dipolarities
of and for our interdependent wealth healthy identity
through win/win communication,
intersectional effectiveness,
sacred meaning and spiraling vocation,
secular purpose and cooperative avocation.

The feminist,
knowing s/he is against patriarchy
and concomitant monocultural corporatism,
monopolistic commodification of social values,
colonizing win/lose hyperactive intent
rooted in supremacist
safe and secure sense of entitlement,
yet not able to articulate what s/he is for,
is a good example
of one who believes s/he could be safe
on a right-brain prominently interdependent
win/win matriarchal Earth,
but has no active enculturation
to thereby uncover egoleft-ecoright
health-wealth interdependent meaning.

Going back to my original list
of environmental hazards to avoid
for left-brain sustainable safety security,
absence of militarized lose/lose
cognitive/emotive co-arising complex chaos
does not explicitly invite peaceful win/win compassionate communication,
communion,
community.

Avoiding physical neglect and abuse is necessary,
but not at all sufficient,
to sustain emotional appreciation and active support
through healthy wealth
of cooperative inter-relational experiences,
recreative joy and profoundly creative celebration,
like making robust resonant harmonies
music,
regenerating music’s internally felt dance,
not only solo,
but with a partner,
within a family,
a community of peers,
a shared globally mediated stage
of song and dance
resistance and celebration
of shared compassion.

Avoiding religious blame and shame games
is not sufficient
to discover natural/spiritual nondualistic win/win
compassion games
defining wealth as refining health,
uncovering right-brain resonance
by discovering left-brain resilience,
explicating opportunity for meaning
without implicating great risk of unsafe egocentric purpose,
informing yang/yin robust intersectionality
without exflowing left or right mindbody egalitarian intelligence.

It remains easier to let go of win/lose patriarchal cultures
as we become more adept
with grabbing hold of win/win ecofeminist climates.

Cooperative Play Day

Within our UU extensive family,

When did universal salvation
become uniform non-redemption?

When did worshiping Earth’s Divinity
become celebrating humanity’s Humanism?

When did unitarian win/win webs
wombs
root systems
eggs
seeds
umbilical cords of compassion’s DNA nutrition,
living forests,
dynamic oceans,
multiculturing climates,
robust atmospheres,
harmonic communions
robust re-creation stories
become smug and self-satisfied win/lose evolution theories,
supported by side by side religious walls
of mutual theology-trumps-ecology exclusion
of right-brain felt inclusions?

When will we universal-leftbrain and rightbrain-unitarian nondually notice,
Yang with Yinclusive,
EgoPatriarch with EcoFeminist appreciate,
that “ecological exclusion”,
like “military cognitive/emotive win/win intelligence”
is an extended anti-family oxymoron?
Both left-brain dissonant
and right-brain longing for resilient resonance.

When do we remember
to celebrate competitive win/lose Labor Day
by growing
and demarginalizing
cooperative win/win Play Day?

Plowshares into Swords

Capital is the original weapon
for blasting apart nutritional health
from commodity wealth.

If capital is human history’s non-ecological economic risk,
Then cooperative investment is our original tool
for healing nutritional wealth
as compassionately felt
GoldenRule opportunity health
for achieving win/win affective and effective politics,
ego-personal
and eco-social

In Love and War

You’ve heard it said?
All’s fair in love and war!

Well,
most ethicists,
even war-mongering philosophers,
disagree with the “All’s fair in war” part,

As do just everyday Earth-patriotic folks
who loyally prefer not to be bombed
and automatically rifled
just because some crackpot(s)
in the nearest capital city plutocracy
decide to make war,
using our kids and tax dollars,
instead of love,
co-passion,
solidarity with Earth’s pro-life health.

All ethicists,
and folks who find compassion
to responsibly risk vulnerability
of a loving relationship,
disagree with the “All’s fair in love” side
of this unmindful equation.

Fairness, equity, of powers to freely say
Yes
or No
to another’s invitation into passion
is a prerequisite to sustainable love,
grace,
mutual integrity of thought and feeling,
regardless of how short- or long-term projected.

It would be more valid
and validating
to observe,
All is at risk in both love and war,
but, unlike violent acts of hate
and fear
and anger
and greed,
risks of love are often fairly balanced
with opportunities for growing healthy cooperative resilience
together,
and certainly not warring unfairly apart.

Health Economy

Systems,
cognitive and experiential,
spiritual and natural,
sacred and secular,
are paradigms,
mature revolutions and still partial evolutions,
with WinWin orthodox pretensions
and yet carrying our own WinLose seeds of destruction
dis-integration,
dissonance,
non-golden rules and irrational ratios
within as without,
yin as yang.

Planning systems clarify who or what “x” is
by deeply understanding how we healthy want
and wealthiest need
x to proceed, continue unfolding,
to evolve not-x, continue revolving,
to restore positive x/y therapeutic action.*

Paradigmatic practitioners evaluate outcomes at least annually,
especially during Advent,
before and after Winter Solstice,

Noticing which trends move us cooperatively
toward WinWin universal compassionate resilience

And which devolve too LeftBrain competitively
toward WinLose dissonant narcissism,
often supported by nationalistic
privileged paternalism,

By competitive over cooperative power-models of Evolution,

By faces of a regally distant
never-changing,
yet omnipresent, EarthCreator God,

By positive/negative health paradigms
emerging WholeSystem polypathic nutritional wealth
of GoldenRule compassion.

To trust other systems, living paradigms,
mature natural and spiritual humans,
co-passionately need to be cooperatively treated…

To act with integral allegiance
as we prefer to WinWin act with all y’s…

Cannot be done both violently and resiliently,
invalidly yet effectively,
competitively against each other,
without deeply listening to not-x,
without looking into our potential victim’s eyes,
without pro-actively extending compassion.

If we look together
at Earth’s modern history of global warfare,
We can see the primary outcome of WW1,
sowing the seeds for WW2.

WW2, however,
began sowing seeds of uniting nations
and universally non-sectarian EarthCare,
healing hate-mongered aggressive wounds
of white patriarchal privilege,
human climate of industrial supremacy,
LeftBrain deductive-reductive plutocracy.

Now, approaching 2020 historic revision
with a new WinWin potential integrity
for WWW post-millennial binomial capacity,
we can compassionately re-image WW3,
inviting each democratic heart
loyal to each cooperatively self-managed nation-state x
allied with all secular and/or sacred non-sectarian EarthTribes y
to embrace compassionate WholeSystem health care
for all climates
all paradigms
all histories and stories and creating cultures
of all compassionate light
revolutions
measuring eternal x
in orbits of bright
wounding and therapeutic Time, y.

Passionate peace longing to understand x
and non-violent surrounding y-compassions,
together x/y belonging,
integrity’s health
resilient wealth.

 

*Math Note: Where x is not any non-polynomial, non-rational paradigmatic y.

Born For Which Purpose?

If you live in a non-sectarian democratic nation
with so much energy
we can lavishly spend boatloads
and plane loads
and tank loads
and truck loads of oily public cash
on killing our own Green Commons,
and threatening all EarthTribes with punishment for…whatever,
and building ever higher physical and emotional walls against foreign tribes,
thereby spreading collateral damage to neighboring species
of animals
and once thriving indigenous plants;

If you live in a place
with so little energy to re-invest in feeding
and watering
and nurturing domestic residents
of all colors and stripes,
spots and star shapes;

Then you live in a nation
too poor in democratically proper health reinvestment
to have earned your blinding undivided wealth of loyalty.

If you live in an overly competitive FirstPatriarchal world
with so much borrowed money
we can competitively buy and sell
sweat and swell the entire planet
currently supporting our too conveniently deniable life that kills style,

Then you live in a codependent insane asylum
about to go bust,
leaving all Earth’s nations
as homeless as a crippled sheep
without a healthy flock,
much less a sacred shepherd
or any semblance of a wealthy heavenly fold.

Invite your ego
your family
your community
your nation,
to look for a higher non-partisan
non-sectarian
non-violent
non-defensive active health goal
encompassing all non-insular wealth objectives.

When achievement of WinWin global health goals is mutually inclusive,
commit to this cooperatively wealthy polypathic direction.

If WinWin is not consensually accessible,
not yet secular Here with sacred Now,
then co-determine healthy corrective actions
moving toward non-violent
non-sectarian
non-partisan
non-defensive therapeutic actions,

Adopt and adapt communication skills
to replace assumptions that winning secular wealth
requires losing sacred health
at home,
inside our own interdependent egos,
with better integrated win health
to win true and beautiful and trusted objectives of wealth
everyday,
this day,
then tomorrow,
and so forth toward inclusive polypathic peace

To restore Earth’s health and beauty trusting future,
We, both left/secular and right/sacred, deep learn
non-sectarian happiness and prosperity
2020 revolutionary nutritional goals
for one globally green democratic health paradigm,
cooperative network disciplines
polypathically deep and wide
where trending investment health is far more blessed
than mere pathology divestment focus.

Making war is not actively investing in health-restoring peace,
And acting ugly does not create beautiful karmic grace
or love
or positive energy investments
or whatever the non-sectarian
non-partisan
non-violating
multi-paradigmatic wealth you choose to call us
more cooperatively nationed
and nurtured
together.
