Masked Medical Missionaries

Not sure why
USA red
relentlessly white
and not so much blue WholeEarth patriots
have consistently
selflessly supported
medical missionaries
vaccinating against every unmasked
health threatening disease
erupting in tribal life
of darkest social systemic Africa

Yet fail to co-empathically embrace
basic
fundamental
win/win evangelically redemptive
bipartisan public health care
here in domestic
Straight White
USA Christian
flag-waving homes

Where live and breathe
our own at-risk children

And climate threatened grandchildren

And pandemonic RightWing denihilistic
degenerating public and private health prospects
for great grandchildren

Who might hope to survive
for more than another wealthy
humane-divine century

Sacredly meaningful
unmasked
transparent
and multiculturally vulnerable
co-empathic
polypathic
public and private
EarthBound health.

Fear of Failure

I know you don’t want to hurt
or even disappoint
me

And I know you don’t want to hurt
yourself.

Yet still your shame
and self-blame hurt

Your self-judging
punishing closet frame
suffocates our transparent life
my caring curiosity craves,
and mutual vulnerability
our sharing courage braves.

Addiction to feeling happy
is not free
and connected to sensory satisfaction
nor to ego significant gratification
and certainly not natural and spiritual bilateral wealth
of healthy feeling substantiation,

Which, as you know,
I also recognize as body and mind healthy
choice voices.

Before you even small voice object,
I also recognize you may feel natural
or spiritual choice
has nothing to do with driving off
without “goodbye,
see you safely soon.”

If no physically tolerable choice
of resources to feed serotonin
and water dopamine,
I know, from years of isolated,
neglected experience,
how frightening loss of lonely ego-powered control
can feel.

Speaking not of choice,
but inside swatting interminable Voice
never still
until you self-shame
and blame
hiding hurts
and unfree frames
us both,
unhappy you,
not Here,

And me
loving enough for Us,
not yet Now

Still worrying
what will voiceless nonchoice happen
disempowered There
and unenlightened Then
suddenly Amen

Our silently uninvited End.

Summer Saturday

On a Michigan farmer Saturday
in August,
anticipating tomorrow’s evangelical Sabbath,

When late summer vacations
invoked pre-sacred house cleanings
more unusually light,

Heading outside after lunch
into this spectacularly breezy
blue billowing
discontinuously cumulus cloudy
in-between radiant sky blue
infinite wonder

Into this awesomely long leisurely afternoon
becoming one of those special kids
sent out to rediscover solitary play
while Mom clears HER kitchen
to fill our kitchen
with impossible fragrance
of Sunday dinner rhubarb pie
or fresh strawberry shortcake,
whipping vanilla or banana cream
while boiling sweet yellow corn,
baking mac and ancient cheddar cheese
for this evening’s pre-dusk compline dinner.

On this first summer celebrating Saturday
of low humidity
and temperatures predicting September 70s

Out past our red barn
and past its barnyard lily pond
and into golden stubbled hay fields,
sheared sexy contoured face
of my temporarily uncloseted gay imaginings
hoping for YangGod’s sexiest face
smiling in sabbath of return

Continuing on
to private green cool woodland
to nakedly climb a favorite tree
skin to naked bark,
full-bodied embrace
of this fabulous shared EarthLife
transparent
and open
and breezy free with God’s inclusive hope.

Out to play
and pray
this day
and month
and vacation
and re-creation
will never end

Or end,
if time must continue,
in moonlit radiant peace,
night dreams
of asking into perfect Sabbath.

Wealthy Defense/Healthy Offense

Fear-based legislation,
more against our diverse pathologies
than for our multiculturing health relationships,

The attempt to govern negative emotions,
outcomes of poor communication,
is always
and everywhere
a corrupt effort,
a suboptimizingly ineffective
unhealthy
impoverishing
unenlightened political
and disempowering economic
uncooperative idea.

The opposite may also be true power
and beautifully enlightening;

That love
and gratitude,
positive attitude rooted legislation
is always fertile
and everywhere regenerative,
a restorative justice
and peaceful experience,
idea,
communication,
choice,
decision,
positive electrical election
for a healthier wealth climate,
individually interior
and globally exterior,
metaphysical
and physical,
sacred
and secular,
induced
and reduced,
inhaled
and exhaled.

So,
conclusions drawn
from this heuristic negative correlation,
thought/felt experiment experience:

Not only be careful
what you don’t legislatively
and judiciously wish for,
also become more creative
with why we do wish for
more abundantly healthy cooperative
sensory/sexual life through death,
spiritual regenerativity
through natural degenerativity
of ego-fearful issues,
solutions,
resolutions,
green democratic constitutions
global corporations
interdependent/static energy networks
therapeutic/pathological governing systems.

Gadflies and HoneyBees

Where to begin
in the middle of cold and dark
winter’s solstice,
healthy green life’s time
of impeachment,
excommunication,
dormancy?

Where does this all rightfully
and left sacredly end?

These are expansive gadfly questions,
problems,
issues of complexly dipolar reason,
leftbrain dominant
either-or thinking
we are either thinking or feeling
rather than conscious of both,
and neither sufficient
without the necessary other.

Light
and passion
win competitive evolutions
only to lose cooperative revolutionary
awareness,
dipolar and co-arising,
bipolar and co-exhaling.

We dissociate cognitive reason
from rightbrain’s more original intuitive-sourced feelings.

Unitarian-Universalists,
like balanced Taoists,
advocate our 7th Principle
about interdependent
intersectional
co-passioning webs
of non-violent life communing love,
passion,
cooperative empowerment,
bicameral egopatriarchal/ecofeminist
yang-yintegrity
spatial-temporal
NonZero-Sum Win/Win contextual
counter-capitalism multicultural,
bilateral
WinLeft’s liberal egolove
to WinRight’s healthiest conservational ecolife.

So, let’s not continue
beginning with a full-spectral blue
and red
and ultra-violet synergy,
but confine our response
to questions not yet leftbrain asked

And notice, instead, dark and light green,
in-between sunny courage yellow
and curious and long-hidden orange,

Merging and emerging
what comes after RightWing Red depressions
of Earth’s healthiest well-being values.

If Earth’s children are, sometimes
not-straight
not-white
not-male,
not particularly egocentric,
not especially competitive,
more artistic and wounded, perhaps,

And not necessarily human,
maybe a chick,
or a colt,
a cub,
pup,
kitten,
calf,
a matriarchal egg, etc.

And,
you are a Wise EcoFeminist Elder,
an organic gardener
looking out for your healthy flock,
your child with disabilities,
your own chronic climate anxiety of win/lose stress,
expecting Aspergerish cooperative co-arising warm compassion
in-between memories of win/lose competitions
and images of future win/win cooperative democratic empowerment
through co-invested polypathic communication,
polynomial relationship,
polyphonic compassion.

You probably would think/feel yourself merely reponsible
for protecting your co-empathic young
from white predative nationalist hate,
from self-unfulfilling prophets of egalitarian apartheid
without hope of interdependent healthy regenerativity,

You would probably want to be reassured that:

1. Your young adult understands what s/he will be hearing
is driven by leftbrain competitive
either/or
emotionally dissociated
deductive/reductive dominating
egocentric
monocultural identity,
semi-consciousness,
at best, no more elitist right
than non-elitist wrong.

2. The right to free and responsible speech
(U-U Principle Four)
has a reverse corollary,
usually unconsciously assumed

S/he has the freedom not to listen
to unfree
dissociated
potentially toxic
one-sided presentations
and leftbrain lopsided verbal debates
with straw ecofeminist
green
cooperative social investors,
voters,
residents,
indigenous citizens of sacred MotherEarth
before denizens of any nation-identified State,
or supremacist Tribe.

3. I would not think/feel
I am “coddling” my adolescent dependents,
whether human in formation
or a yearling pony,
by inviting them to anticipate discussion
with win/win non-violent intent,

That we are good
and natural
and healthy
and democratic
to assume restorative green resilience
of all ecosystems
and all subclimates,
whether internal or external,
whether yin or yang,
whether unitarian or universal,
whether ecofeminist or egopatriarchal,
whether sacred Left interdependent ecosystemic
or secular Right egocentric capitalists,

Dialogue is always a healthier choice
for a wise green energy democracy
then violent
overly competitive debates,
with zero-sum win/lose relational/nutritional assumptions

As if win/lose capitalism makes democratic nurturing sense
despite win/win empowering green
original sacred-mind and secular-body
bilateral revolutionary intent,

Where rational regenerative history
greets intuitive resonant mystery
with deep green learning respect.

4. And we are not really ‘coddling’
to rationally expect non-violent discussion
begins with compassionate win/win listening
for points of cooperative agreement,

Usually more significant
than win/lose points of runaway disagreement,
regardless of cultural color appreciation
or species gratitude,
or the healthier humor of leftbrain egopatriarchal dominance
passionate about cooperative rightbrain ecofeminist prominence.

Reason-rooted StraightWhiteMale gadflies
sometimes have trouble hearing
and appreciating the interdependent power
of 7th interdependent identity principles
in balance with
1st co-relational
co-passionate dignity principles

Of egalitarian freedoms to speak
and interdependent responsibilities
to listen for win/lose issues
to discern win/win cooperative resolutions.

Gadflies may tolerate
dissonant monoculturing fascist risks,
rather than resonantly co-responding
with confluent
polyculturing
interdependent opportunities,
which are more of a honey bee
kind of humming green consciousness,
both wealthy mind-thought
and healthy body-felt.

White Dad Confession

I have USA raised
and LeftBrain Dominant branded
and capitalized
AfricanAmerican sons
disassociated from Earth
as a healthy,

Instead too narrowly focused on what Straight White Western Men think,

Too EgoCentric
AnthroCentric
Xenophobic
Earth-Alienated
to indigenously
timelessly cherish

uncolonizing
uncapitalizing
unhomophobic
Species of healthy wealth regeneration

and perhaps even 20-20 re-imagine
sensually
deductively
inductively
thought and felt,
yanged and yinned

ComPassion
Love
Solidarity

Resonance
Resilience
Robust Regenerativity

So much more
than life-as-slow-dying objectives like
Avoid prison
Avoid police
Avoid criminalized economic behavior
Avoid shamed and blamed political misbehavior
Avoid Xenophobically Colonizing
Incorporatizing White Western Male
Capital MonoTheistic Ownership

Yet also
Avoid CoOperative CoInvestment
Avoid SacredEarth Communion
Avoid EcoFeminist Persuasions
Avoid Healthy WealthCare Giving and Receiving…

Strong Health Defense

Avoiding risk
is not always the best way to feed
and assertively, but not overbearingly, water
resilient opportunities.

Patriarchalism
is not always the best way to build
resilient ecofeminist cooperative opportunities.

It may too often be exclaimed,
“The best offense
is a strong defense.”

Defensive strategies
begin to look remarkably aggressive,
even left-brain overbearingly offensive.

I don’t recall the reverse claim,
“The best defense
is an affluent
effluent offense.”

Probably because this is not necessarily true
to resiliently healthy experience.
Mosquito repellent bracelets
seem more sustainably effective
than bombing my entire lot
in predator/prey life
with toxic insecticide.

And yet,
I’m not sure that the more popular aphorism
is any more true or false.

The most resilient and powerful defense
against suffering and loss,
against climates of pathology,
already feels too self-isolating
timid
lacking in healthy robust curiosity,
too anti-degenerative
to actively regenerate hope
and cooperative faith
and win/win co-passion
and gratitude
for courage to face new frontiers of awareness
with those
and that
now less known,
less connected,
less resiliently
resonantly etched into our global gratitude
attitude experience.

If we were to re-image offensive strategies
to grow win/win economic/political gratitude
as Yang-strength,
universally
mutually empowering;

And, Yin-effluent flow
as defensive ecofeminist opportunities,
invitations to ease off the left-brain dominant
competitive
either/or thinking
enculturing win/lose
inflaming gas,
We might find ourselves with feminists
resisting patriarchal extraction histories
predicting only future Loser economics
and Loser ecological disempowerment
of otherwise healthy robust futures,
Yang-offensive and Yin-defensive balance.

But, resistance without resilient win/win offensives
does not effectively balance our tipping point
double-bound offensive/defensive optimization,
inviting us toward cooperatively-held articulate
resilient healthy purpose,
robustly wealthy sacred meaning
experiencing Yang-health
as Yin beauty-wealth,

Universal offense-wealth
as unitarian defense,
slow-grown communal
ecofeminist
ego-political win/win integrity;
healthy-wealth optimization,
right-brain prominent enculturation,
resilient both-offense-and-defense resonance.

A frog in a patriarchal well
does not know the great ecofeminist sea.

Military FireWork

He said the undiplomatic cost
to all of us freedom celebrators,
to firstborn sons and daughters,
to last born future children,
would be far less
than its liberating value.

Value for and against whom?

Value for and against what healthy purpose?

Value for and against which wealthy constituents?

Because he couldn’t listen

Pursuing Democratic Health

Democratic pursuits of healthy constitutions
and health policy discipline
are often associated with growing compassion,
enlightenment values
for well-being and happiness,

And peace and happiness, in turn,
associated with prosperity, both natural and spiritual wealth,
never one without the other.

This historical association includes integral global prosperity
hoped for during the Great Enlightenment
climaxing during the 1700s
as our democratic spirited
and natured USA was busy being born.

Health, like wealth,
can be measured in quantities compared across time,
sometimes trending bigger and more robust
and sometimes sadly smaller and more stagnant,

But, health, as wealth, also feels warm flowing
in effluent rivers and root nutritional systemic qualities
of multilateral WinWin positive compassion,
tossed back and forth in everyday discourse,
through LoseLose negative ego-mania
echoing cognitive silos of dissonance.

Personal health, like wealth,
prosperity of happiness and warm nests,
can be thought about as short-term
sufficiency for each moment composing one lifetime,

Or more long-term confluence,
multi-regenerational,
mother’s warm womb to daughter to grandmother’s womb,
back and forth through time
remembered and projected healthy wealth
into our co-passioned nutritional future.

Global democratic health,
like self-governing compassionate wealth,
can be measured in cooperative quantities of lifespans
and consumer market potential
compared to productive efficiency
measured against cost of labor
and materials
and energy consumed/produced,
and pollution
and waste,
compared against Win/Lose inefficient competitions
and Lose/Lose energy resources
of ecological/economic global failure,
and waste,
and contrasted to Win/Win co-investing compassion trends.

Earth’s health, like wealth,
can become more synergetically understood
as qualities of multicultural integrity,
flow,
growing robustly effluent,
affluent nutritional depth, width,
buoyancy, multicultural beauty
speaking polypathic truth to monocultural predation,
degradation from Paradise potential
degenerating to WeedPatch mendacity,
hypocrisy,
lunacy,
rabidity
of narcissistic fear-mongering
twittering
while treating Earth as though a personal AntiGolden Ruled Toilet,
garbage disposal

A rabid rat’s nest
rewriting Golden HealthRule democratic constitutions
to best serve northern
and western white patriarchal monoculturing degenerators
of military industrialized hate and threat commodity climates
growing personally
and politically
and economically
and socially unhealthy
and psychologically unwealthy
and way anti-democratic unwise,

Anti-healthy wealth of white male privilege
dispassionately apathetic toward healthy quantities
and wealthy matriarchal flowing qualities.

Constitutional Rights and Wrongs

An attorney friend of mine once said,
We have two opposing views
of the hows and whys of law and time and natural evolution,
including natural law,
and including U.S. Constitutional Law.

One assumes both natural and spiritual nondual legal obligations
to invite and respond to the friends of our allies
as our potentially cooperative friends,
unless proven to be too contrary,
competitive WinLose.

This is the type of lawyer,
and parent,
and friend,
and fellow-resident of Earth,
neighbor,
democratically multicultural-is-positive voter,
I intend to become
with every breath both Yang-out deductive of Yin-inductive-concave,
with every heartbeat both Yang-flow out toward diastatic climax
and Yin reverse toward aptic-static
to begin again,
with every day and nightmare,
with ever week and month and year
of this,
our Positive PolyPathic Ground
and Air and Fire and Water of Becoming
CoRevolutionaries of Moral Secular/Sacred
ReGenerative EgoHealth/EcoWealth
Yang/Yin EcoPolitical Integrity
nondual
co-arising…

Then there are my more amusing, and sometimes terrifyingly unwell, BusinessAsUsual WinLose LeftBrain Dominant types
of lawyers
and parents
and voters,

The enemy of my friends
is probably also my competing ecopolitical enemy,
therefore I shall play
Mutually Assured LoseLose Condemning Belittling Bullying Destruction,
perhaps by aiming first at Islamic NationStates
owning oil and civil and climate unrest.

We shall assume WinLose normative legal ethics
and yet also RightBrain remembers this assumption’s ecological conclusion
is most nihilistically, merely secularly,
reductively, merely naturally,
to Lose sacred dignity of both life and death,
to become a merely entropic dissonant future
absence of health and safety regeneration.

Despite this understory of irritating belief-faith dissonance,
I choose LoseLose Mutual Destruction
perhaps because no one sufficiently mentored
what it could promise to continue cooperatively within our larger
WinWin Earth HealthAsWealth Herstoric Narrative
about how to act and speak and design and plan and game for

and imperatively

My Legal Counselor said,
Mother Earth is my healthiest and most nutritiously balanced
most functionally organic-cooperative
LegalAid EcoFeminist Doctor of Natural/Moral Constitutional ReGenerative Law
and Executive Orders,
about friends of friends as friends WinWin assumptions,
he himself both naturally and spiritually
emerged from,
and of,
and for,
and with,
and toward.

I so wish he had run for CoOperative President
of Mutually ReAssuring ReGenerative Health and ReProducing WinWin Safety,
committed to enforcing a Constitutional Law
most nutritiously and organically rooted in WinWin-only choice-making,
assuming friends of friends are friends,
rather than more of the same old
I’m Not Listening!
because I can’t stop talking about my FearMongering ParanoidEgo SelfIdentity,
so I’m issuing this memo from
ME: CEO of These United WinLose Corporations
TO: All bicamerally functional WinWin Civil Servants,
constitutionally self-identifying your LeftEgo/RightEco consciousness
for optimizing health and safety cooperative investment futures:

Always assume the enemies of all our allies,
(and I might be SuperPatriotically sure that our
‘Allies’ probably are quickly becoming a set of None, Zero,…
I’m feeling really conflicted about WinLose economics v politics
within our NATO strategy–
more logical to go WinLose separatist-fascist)…
As I was LeftBrain saying,
Always assume WinLose strategic competition is best for health and safety outcomes,
rather than continuing with the Constitutional
Evolutionary Historical Evidence
supporting a more organic Network of InterDependent CoOperation
toward One HealthySacred Body of ReGenerativity,
and away from DeGenerate Supremacies of State
WinLose Disempowerment of Liberty for All.

I suspect those more WinLeft BothAnding WinRight optimized
toward Ego/Eco Balancing patriotic civil service,
not uncivil disservice,
will have constitutional issues
with how such WinLose Assumptions of Mutual Destruction
resonates with US Constitutions
of Original WinWin EcoPolitical CoOperative Intent,
that friends of friends are also WinWin assuming and inviting friends
in NonDualist Enlightenment,
both West and East Philosophical
about ThermoDynamics of EcoPolitical YangConserving/YinProgressing
Nurturing-Integrity of Health and Safety Global thru Universal Intent.

May BioSystemic-ReGenerative EarthHearts forgive my friend,
the WinWin EcoTherapeutic Attorney
and Parent
and Voter as Breather and BiCameral Heart-Beater,
for not having spoken
as resonantly as he positive-health polypathically practiced
resolved
regenerated
reproduced these thoughts with feelings of co-empathic well-being.

Are we here to help each other toward more cooperatively healthy-regenerative lives?
Or do we still WinLose compete to persuade each other of why we cannot all WinWin together,
which is why we originally came to each other
to figure out how to do.

Will you only tell me why I EitherOr can’t;
or also add why we BothAnd could regenerate Earth’s Constitutional Beloved Community future?
