Reason To Celebrate

I overheard you say
you are planning a big celebration
for later this year,
when Trump is defeated
for re-election.

I am ready to be invited,
if you would be so kind
to reverse your motives
to celebrating positive alternatives.

I have an uncomfortable memory
that celebrating the former regime’s end
feels alarmingly Trumpian,
rather than introducing a new 2020 green deal
healthier wealth for everyone.

It is this negative anger
growing to more negative fear
that most defeats our capacity to touch each other
with mutual trust,
democratic health,
civil trust in a wealthier future together
than climatically apart.

Earth yields some clues
warmly regarding necessary and sufficient ingredients
for a healthy swamp,
a positive capital co-investment,
an economically resilient,
politically resonant,
multiculturally effective democracy.

Stuckness
She does not choose to celebrate.
MotherEarth
and EarthMothers of all regenerations
vacuum up and sweep out
intolerance.

A competitive model of capital extraction
rooted in devouring our own habitat,
our own win or lose militarized young,
our Earth’s pathological neglect,
is incompatible
antithetical
to a resiliently healthy eco-democracy
recomposing our own healthy born
win/win expectant
left with right,
not left v right, children.

Healthy robust systems
are cooperatively owned
and multiculturally managed
and polyculturally celebrated
by organic nurturers of ego/eco-resonance,
left and right deep bicameral learning nutrients,
informed by Earth’s democratic history
of multiculturing nutrition,
life,
warm truths and trusts,
integral ways
and ego/eco-democratic robust means

Bicameral
Bilateral intelligence
Binomial double-bound
not not pro-green transitional
great reweaving manifestations,
inaugurations,
cooperatively-owned celebrations
leaving no one behind,

Not even straight white male narcissists,
emotionally wounded children
of all ages and parties,
naked emperors
seeking sycophantic celebrants.

Universal-Unitarian Trinity of Zero

Atheism,
for a Taoist
and for U-Us
and Zeroists,
and Not ZeroSumists,
and Positive ZeroZone Therapists,
is synonymous with Agnosticism
and maybe Gnostic BiCameral Consciousness.

Healthy skeptics,
but not pessimists,
Agnostics understand how win/lose leftbrain either/or dominant
intelligent people
confuse Atheism with AntiTheism
but do not internally suffer from these competing
and ambivalent
anxious
depressing confusions.

For both a Taoist philosopher-writer-composer-musician-muse
and a UU multicultural Truth/Power lover,
it feels unbalanced to be open only to appreciating Universal Theists
and closed to the unitarian
interdependently egalitarian AntiTheists among us,
all potential allies along life’s loving theological
ecologically co-relational journey

Just as it is Left with Right hemisphere wrong, both thought and felt,
to accept a culturally reinforced Thesis
but not a multiculturally contextual
appositional
compare and contrast AntiThesis,
like YangStrength with YinFlow,
like Left with Right bilateral unwinged communion,
like Outside with Inside climate solidarity,
like Left Privilege with or against Dark Fragility,
like Elite cooperatively with
or competitively against NonElite,
like Win/Win with Lose/Lose spectral re/de-generativity,
like Ego WealthyIdentity with and against EcoSystemic Healthy Individuation…

Between internal MonoTheistic Spirit
and external AntiTheistic Nature
lies a multicultural pandemic of economic
investing/divesting theologies

Our subjective
and objectively felt personal knowledge
win/lose evolves,
lose/lose revolves,
win/win resolves

I’ve noticed, so far,
along my UU-Taoist journey:
PolyTheism
PanTheism
Zeroism
PanEnthemematic Communionism
MultiCultural Win/Win ReGenerativism
Health/Wealth Nature/Spirit CoOperativism,
sadly, Win/Lose Capitalism

And have no doubt
we will, across eternal time
and timeless space
know and grow
unknown and despised and revised
many more variations
on this Yang/Yin
Thesis/AntiThesis
EgalitarianUniverse Rights / InterdependentUnity Responsibilities
LeftBrain Dominant / RightBrain Prominent
WarmThoughts with FluidFeelings
dipolar co-arising
Ego-Theo-Eco-triumvirate
trinitarian without capital
heady
egotistic
narcissistic over-investment in Trumpistic Triumphalism
of leftbrain autonomous illusion

Truth and Beauty and Trust
actively looking for
easier not not co-passion themes
of past faith
with future hope
for today’s sufficient love.

Born of CareTakers

Born of wombs
for premeditated health
and restoring nutritional wealth,

We might warmly anticipate
a more win/win democratic living Earth communion,
more like an organic gardening womb
than a lose/lose political capital-overinfested swamp,
filling in with unhealthy communities,
filling in with dysfunctional nuclear-ballistic families
and tribes,
filling in with shame and blame starving
thirsting
habitat-less
unwarmed
isolated self-righteous
non-leftist individuals,

Longing to return
from whence we Earth CareTaker came.

Before wounded parents
and win/lose mentors and teachers
of competitive debate
and not cooperative
civil civic discussion
began our partisan disloyal-to-Earth debates.

Wounded left-brain dominant verbal
win/lose
either/or debate enculturation,
is important as a first step
to understand our chosen
and/or assigned,
bought and paid for
health/wealth cooperative position
to defend
and grow
and win
with either my way
or Earth’s benighted highway.

But, wounded parents,
mentors,
teachers,
preachers are apt to omit the second step
of debate preparation:
Get into your opponent’s head(s).
What will they say
do
think
feel
to persuade your shared audience,
if not you,
that your Earth CareTaker position
is, in fact, not healthy
not wealthy,
not robustly rightbrain resonant
and profoundly leftbrain resilient?

Will they say you are well intended
but are too liberal
in your polypathic/polyphonic love?

Will they find your healthy longings
for ecological and theological intersectionality,
secular and sacred interdependence,
too extravagant,
too ambitious,
too liberal,
too costly,
too unsafe,
too naive,
too non-violent for responsible defense
from their own already-anxious win/lose offense?

Our own self-unfulfilling lose/lose
nihilistic
mortal
dissociated
disinvested prophecy?

How will you cooperatively win/win?
How might we regeneratively
resonantly
resiliently respond to courageous curiosity
with warm appreciative inquiry,
with warm accompaniment
remembering way back
to that originally unwounded
and EarthCoPassionate
warm wet womb?

LeftBrain debate may be Earth’s healthy prologue
but RightBrain appreciative warm-felt dialogue
is EarthCare Discerning epilogue;

History
is to Destiny
as win/win polypaths
are to polycultural health/wealth outcomes
for all God’s Earth CareTakers.

PowerSource

Some see power as personal,
feel light as intimate belonging,
interpersonal hope and faith and love.

For these,
life’s experience and memory
are theologically driven from above,
explained,
hoped for,
and feared when lost,
abandoned
neglected
repeatedly abused.

Others hear power as planetary evolution,
sometimes climaxing in intense revolutions
of painful loss
and gainful passion
within nature/spirit nonduality

Transcending autonomous ego-body/mind association
and dissociation.

For these,
love’s compassion and losses
are ecologically embedded,
reiterated,
actively hoped for,

And feared economic and political
and ultimate individuating risk
of fading through fragile depressed eco-unlogical despair
and suppressed political terror
about co-passioning Earth’s mortality,

As if this personal Goddess
could someday die
while humanity claims Rapture
elsewhere.

Two Mints In One

My multiculturing sanctuary
includes an anti-racism team.

Our closest synagogue ally
has an anti-defamation league.

Both my Team
and our League
are against contempt for Earth
and all Her natural/spiritual Tribes and Systems,
Networks and PassionStories.

We are composed of anti-patriarchal feminists
not against non-violent actions,
and against non-verbal
and verbal
and pre-verbal
and reverberating
not-healthy communications.

For shared agendas
that feel so robustly positive
by discovering mutual resonance
hoping for immediate
through long-term resilience,
cherishing an experience of healthy
cooperative
interfaith family,
It feels surprising how our culture,
verbal and non-verbal language
grow so replete with double-negatives,
double-binds,
not not positives
stuck in fight or flight immobilization

Looking for more robust defining ways
to claim cooperative economies,
compassionate ecofeminist politics,
integral win/win healthy democratic strategies
for ego and eco-systemic
polypathic
polyphonic
therapeutic wealth.

Restoring Deeply Conservative Progress

Our old nemesis,
capitalism,
is much older than democratic theory,
and even older than profoundly resilient democratic practice,
which is rather like Christianity–
often communion preached
and seldom democratically and multiculturally proficient,
fruitful,
viral,
contagious,
multiplying economic loaves
and politically empowering fish.

Capital-rooted values
derive from tribal chiefs,
professional healers and clergy,
and, more recently,
in the era of empires and nation-states,
royalty miraculously arriving by divine right
and sacramental enlightenment
of Elite EcoPolitical Persons,
recognized by exclusive rights of supremely royal birth–
entirely dissociated from loyalty of natural systemic rebirth.

When democratic political theory of inclusive,
non-elite,
eventually ecofeminist empowerment developed
into our straight white patriarchal U.S. Constitution,
we did not have enough multicultural experience,
and ecologically regenerative understanding,
to recognize that democracy is rooted in feelings of trust
and economic cooperative experience,
co-investment in what Game Theorists define as

NonZeroSum Win/Win ecopolitical outcome resilience

Resonant experience of cooperative ownership,
stewardship of compassionate properties
that can only be immorally misunderstood
as autonomously purchased with capital
and therefore ethically owned
controlled
exploited
deflowered.

Organic self/other
ego/eco
left/right bicameral management
remains conservatively rooted
in feelings of historic and cultural solidarity
on progressive journey toward resonant secular meaning
and resiliently sacred purpose.

Instead of noting that health
and well-being
and prosperity are endemic to cooperative win/win health systems
more than the chronic stress
typical of competitive win/lose strategies,
U.S. democracy is conservatively assumed to protect and defend capitalism,

Exclusively private wealth-accumulation,
and later incorporated anthropocentric self-investment
dissociated from OtherEarth Matriarchy,
becomes de-royalized personal patriarchal ownership.

Divine powers
and personhood
become disassociated from royalty
by right of birth,
and democratically re-associated with everyday inheritance
of anthropocentric royalty
accompanied by requisite meritocracy
of past familial,
and private corporate,
capital-wealth accumulation.

God the Father’s blessing
is evinced by bounteous ownership of currency;
not to be confused with natural energy democracy,
powers of naturally recycling currents of motion,
emotion
immolation
demotion
re-motion
premonition

At this point,
democratic health
and ecological/theological resilience
have been dissociated from moral virtue,
divorced from cooperative win/win wealthy systems
and divested from multicultural womanist networks
of co-empathic empowerment.

Our task,
rooted in this historic-cultural ecology of theological history,
Left/Right bicameral analysis,
may be seen as how to win more resources for and with non-elites,
left marginalized by win/lose rightwing capitalism,
no longer aligned with a green democratic trust
non-violent agenda for peace restoring EarthJustice;

As Jesus of Nazareth probably said,
we will always have the poor with us,
within us,
even if only poor in anti-natural,
unlovely and felt unloved, spirit.

We might also see this Great Transition
as a multicultural challenge
to deeply conserve healthy democratic progress,

Great opportunity to Reweave capitalism
into cooperatively-invested health care,
matriarchal giving while patriarchal receiving empowering
win-Self/win-Other models
for non-violent relationships
with Earth’s global climate,
with Interpersonal EgoSystemic CoOperating CoInvestment climates,
and MultiCultural EcoSystemic climates

Cooperatively polypathic/polyphonic,
left/right
universal/unitarian
yang/yintegrity
atomic/wave-linear co-relational
envisioned/deeply sensed empowerment,
renewing enlightenment era democratic resilient health
as also resonant economic wealth,

Promising compassionate
polycultural-nutritional-deeply prosperous
natural/spiritual outcomes.
