Why do ecologists

ReGenerating Trust

And,
Why do multiculturists
disvalue active DisTrust
as DeGenerative
Negative Apartheid DisCommunication?

And,
Why are all these
polypathically together
Cooperative + more win/win empowering
as contrasted with Competitive (-) MisTrust
Mis-UnCentered lack of Integral Communion’s

Note:

See also “Spiral Dynamics: mastering values, leadership, and change” by Don Edward Beck and Christopher C. Cowan, kinda like ghost transliterators for the bicameral systemic healthy redevelopment thinking of Clare Graves, restructuring Earth-Contextual Intelligence as spiral ing dynamic fractal/octave/bilateral/trilateral polymetric multiculturally revolutionary DNA-iconic structure for cooperative planning, compassionate communication, designing polyculturally healthy EarthRegenerative outcomes. 

There is also a helpful synopsis in wikipedia.com, if you search “Spiral Dynamics.” My own work with this creolizes (attempts to co-acclimate, in a Gregory Bateson cooperative define/refine kind of way) Spiral Dynamics with Integral Permaculture Design principles of compassionate EarthCentric planning for healthy redevelopment of radically democratic, non-anthropocentric cooperatively-invested, resonant and resilient design.  Which, indeed, does sound very much like either a Clare Graves sentence, and/or a Bucky Fuller paragraph page-long sentence.  Which is probably why I tend to write prose in poetically licensed horizontally blocked disguise, in some form of left/right internal communicating, guiding guise.

Neglecting Democratic Health

I’m feeling some civil

To re-member

is a mental health crisis

In our U.S. Win/Lose normative

In our anti-democratic

A Healthier Patriotism

My own patriotic U.S. extended family,
historically,
and currently
remains StraightWhiteMale privileged
in our collective memories,
if not imaginations,
of spiritual communion
with all the more privileged saints
present,
past,
and future

But, we have also suffered
from rather too much faith in capitalism,
which, like democracy,
is frequently faulted as miserable,
but also lauded as better
than all the socialistic
communistic
devilistic
totalitarian
fascist
foreign
threatening
terrifying
anger-inducing alternatives.

Capitalism of our encultured
multigenerational minds
with left-hemisphere dominant brains
favoring natural secularized competitions
between saints and sinners
of diversely threatening monocultural privilege,
persuasions fundamentally supremacist
for democracy in theory
so long as not in perceived conflict
with self-serving capitalism in daily personal practice,
natural and spiritual,
secular and sacred,
ecological and theological.

We are egocentric
sometimes narcissistic
always bootstrap individualistic
evangelical redemption ecopoliticals
but focused on BadNews
of our need to invest in violent self-defense
against Marxist communism out there
in Hell

Not to be confused with commitment to GoodNews
of sacred divine communion
within our privileged StraightWhiteMale places
of apartheid worship
in awe and wonder
dogmatically committed to our StraightWhiteMale God

Made military-industrialized
in our best capitalistic,
not really quite so democratic paternalistic
image of left-hemisphere
StraightWhiteMale rightfully empowered
historical/cultural dominance.

So, there we have it,
this chaotic bilateral dissonance
between our powers of political democratic enlightenment
through whole open-systemic dialogue,
and our confusion about economic uncooperative self-empowerment
at the necessary (either/or thinking) cost of Other disempowerment,
gone sadly win/lose awry
through endless polarizing debate assumptions

That if someone wins,
then all others playing our eco-political game
must lose,
which sounds very much like
survival of the fittest
rightest
left-brain dominant species
OVER AGAINST
Earth’s whole open system
green/blue
ecological/theological success.

Like our dominant left-hemisphere academic theory
of secularized win/lose evolution
is more anthropocentrically capital-headed
and self-righteously defensively effective
than Earth’s sacred WINblue/WINgreen
ego/eco-politics
of polypathic political dialogue
empowering through GoldenRule democratic resilience,

And right hemisphere
polyphonic economic enlightenment
co-invested through Golden Octave Ratios
in interdependent multicultural dialogue,

Holonic nonzero sum,
polynomially left GroupTheory
and polyvagally bicameral right/left Win/Win GameExperience

My extended global
multicultural family
history and future
with more resonant
healthier cooperative democracy
embedded in Earth’s ecosystemic wealth,

Co-invested across multi-generations
of MotherEarth’s wise-dialogue
win/win eco-political
eco-feminist regenerators

Not of colonizing political
and anthropocentric economic privilege
but of democratically co-invested integrity
in sacred green/blue communion.

Disempowering Systems

Systemic racism
is a social/cultural pattern
of racial prejudice
originating within individuals
and their anecdotal experiences
and lack of multiculturally enriching discernment

Shedding light,
and shredding dark,
power analysis,
political and economic,
on patterns of white privileged events
unveils systemic patterns of win/lose empowered privilege
and disempowering lose/lose prejudices,
race and male and heterosexual privileged
anthropocentric unredeeming
lack of communication
events.

Take, for example,
a power analysis of John 3:16:

For God so loved the world [Earth and EarthCreatures]
That He gave His only begotten Son [patriarchal frame]
So that whosoever believes in Him
Shall not perish
But have eternal life.

Literalist
Fundamentalist
Conservative
Evangelical Christians
(should this prove not to be a complex oxymoron)
have supplanted believing in God’s radically interdependent EarthLove
(first phrase)
with doctrinal belief in Jesus of Nazareth
as God’s only begotten, privileged
humane/divine hybrid Son of
StraightWesternWhiteMale
LeftBrain Dominant
Military-Industrialized
Retributive Win/Lose Judging God.

This substitution of belief
in the privileged sacred status
of a Jewish male Teacher
and Prophet,
sharing his potentially viral experience
of Jewish AbbaCreator
as win/win power of universal multiculturing
regenerative Love,
is a culturally profound
early straight white western
(not particularly eastern nature/spirit nondualistic)
privileged-prejudicial moment
of defining God’s economic
and politically empowering grace
in troubling oppositional terms:

First phrase, Regenerative Source is universal Love,
and, third phrase,
Regenerative Source is historically-culturally,
systemically racist.

If, to be orthodox and effectively Christian
is to be spiritually privileged,
then those not born into evangelical Christian homes,
King James Bible reading communities,
Western dominating cultures
are disproportionately
and systematically
and historically under privileged,
disempowered
unredeemed
with less win/win graced
direct experience of Love
Light
Word internal/external
ego-refining/ecopolitical-defining win/win
potential spiritual/natural life optimizers.

Jesus of Nazareth’s prime experiential teaching,
story telling
prophetic “God is multiculturing universal win/win Love”
not revengeful monoculturing
win/lose systemic
racist Judge

Is not resonantly heard,
not resiliently felt,
neither tasted nor seen
through eyes and ears,
hands and heart,
mouth and nose
of straight white male privilege

Too leftbrain dominant
to divinely know
and nondualistically respect
appreciate
primacy of empowering cooperative green/blue Love experience
over disempowering competitive redblooded Lust
for theologically dogmatic unecological lack of relationship,
anthropocentric
xenophobic
narcissistic
individualistic ego-salvific power

To claim sacred wealth of life
for yourself and only your Tribe
by denying truths of sacred/secular empowerment
through win/win cooperative everyday experience
of communion
throughout all EarthTribes

Divine/humane
right/left
yin/yang
green/red
nonviolent communicating Light
of ChristMass Love
Words
Stories of CoRedemption

Democratic,
not autocratic,
experiences both ecologically natural
and theologically spiritual;

Devoid
Cleansed
Wiped Clean of racist,
straight male dominant,
leftbrain misculturing
unhealthy
unwealthy supremacy.

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.

Cancel Culture

Dear Donald,

Your emperor’s nakedness
is transparently showing
in increasingly risky
vulnerable political ways.

Thought I should remind you,
“Counter Culture”
is short
for Anti-Multicultural Health Care
politically giving
and economically receiving,
sacredly empowering
and secularly enlightening
cooperative co-investments
in global health
of compassionate wealth.

Other than your handful of retweets,
you could teach yourself to un-narcissistically see
and hear,
kindly touch
and responsibly feel,
millions of silent
resistant
non-retweets

From those feeling not too safe
about our healthy futures
as individuals
and as residents of a living planet.

Your neglected ecotherapist,

MultiCulturing MotherEarth

UnderStated Yet OverHeard

I’m not comfortable
talking about racial differences,

Or even racial
or sensual similarities.

I know what you mean
or maybe I do.
Something intimate and personal
about melanin
and hair qualities
and what lies red-blooded
under shared and segregated skin.

I remember when long hair quantity
was an anti-patriarchal political statement,
maybe even economic;
But not qualities
like “good” hair
or “black” hair
or “kinky” hair
or “Aryan” blond hair
or “much too blond” hair.

I’m uncomfortable
talking about kinky sex, too.

I’m hearing something about mixing
personal and political.

I know, right?

Like, when did the decision to have a baby
or not,
because of emergent climate pathologies,
impending drought
and hunger

Pandemics

Floods

Fierce and frightening windstorms

Failure of insurance
and financial
and healthy-democratic v fake-populist government systems
become more than merely personal?

I don’t know.
I’m starting to see reality of power-centers
the eco-Other way around.

Meaning…

That personal climates
and characteristics
are also politically empowering
and/or disempowering,
often with economic
investment and/or divestment
implications;
Not partisan, especially,
but essentially political,
like positive and negative cultural power.

When was the last time
someone told you,
“It’s not personal,
I’m just not ready to commit”
Or
“It’s not personal,
it’s just a time and money budget problem”
Or
“an administrative decision”
“come down from corporate”
“change in [impersonal, generic, general] policy”
“a decision [choice] made upstairs”
about a group of individuals
of which you, unfortunately,
are a now unwanted part.

As if,
because it’s political
or economic policy,
it can’t become legitimately felt as personal
disempowerment
or even familial empowerment;
like capitalistic corporately learned responses
to cultures of melanin
and kinkiness.

My favorite
is when people ask me
not to confuse religion
with politics
and economics.

I know, right?
Like most of Earth’s human population
could
or would place their faith
in politically impoverished
or economically disempowered
counter-cultural
communitarian cooperative communication
and spiritual and sensory education
and ecofeminist formation failing systems

Like ecologically failing subclimates
and theologically monoculturing racism
and sexism
and straight white patriarchal privileged
left-brain dominant systems.

Personal systems.

And political.

And economic.

And social-psychological

Multiculturally transmitted

Whether by democratic constitutions
or divinely inspired scriptures
or patriarchal lines of spiritual masters
teachers with diverse levels of aboriginal melanin,
and good or kinky hair,
and those upper eyelid folds
I’m not sure I Western trust…

Polite Political Distance

I hope I would
find a difference
between cooperative masturbation
and making passionate love
if I could

I wonder if I should
recognize ego’s fulfillment
as more leftbrain secularized
and the other
as Old Green EcoSchool sacred
and red-blooded.

I hope a brief career
as a prostitute
was brief because I could not produce
a sultry fascinated look
for commercial leftbrain purposes.

I would not
because I could not
and perhaps it is not a flaw
in character
that the issue of should not
never co-arose.

I also wonder about my brief career
as a model.

I could not produce
the gift of an impassioned smile
for commercial purposes,
or at least not a smile
photographers found resonant,
nor sufficiently resilient
for longer term consumption.

Again, I would not
because I could not
force what my rightbrain felt
should co-arisingly
responsively flow from wealth
of safe and co-relational health,
secular and sacred.

I had a not brief enough career
as a commercial writer
for human development,
childhood
and young adult
and cooperative community development
agencies
for more warm than polite
politically empowering agency.

I could not fail to notice
how commercial professional fundraisers,
also known as beleaguered Executive Directors,
replaced original founders
whose hearts co-empathically arose
with compassion to serve,
and live in personal
and familial,
even tribal and global, solidarity
with all poor in spirit
disenfranchised from Earth’s sacred nature.

I retired
when I could not fail to notice
I was a white male privileged
commercial writer
for a straight white privileged
corporate culture
no longer even dreaming
of non-commercial solidarity
with those we were white privileged
to serve with increasingly secularized
mediocrity
of indentured servants
rather than rightbrain co-empathically committed
to robustly co-relational
co-passionate
cooperative attachments

Within EarthTribe’s unprostituted
organically whole
yet spiritually open
co-empowering relationships.

I wonder if I would
find a difference
between codependent political masturbation,
between Trumpian self-serving administration,
and founding democratic Fathers
making passionate non-commercial love
if I could
and should.

The Americans

“I do not see what right any one would have
to object to calling this part
[the South American mainland],
after Americus
who discovered it
and who is a man of intelligence,
Amerigen,
that is, the Land of Americus,
or America:
since both Europa and Asia
got their names from women.”
Matthias Ringmann, cartographer, 1507

With the bringing down of statues
and the renaming of sacred temples,
I am reminded of Biblical tearing down
of shrines to Baal,
the turning of politically and religiously correct
cultural backs and shoulders,
hands and feet,
heads and capital investments
away from our own idolatrous sins
of anthro-centric history.

Fair enough,
but, to gaze upon which new god
and goddess?
Green and Black sacred lives,
and red blood of The Lamb
and yellow SonLight
and blue Marian EcoFeminist
and ultra-nonviolet EarthMother Moon.

So many colors to choose
or not to choose
yet avoid new temples to Baal;

A crisis of risk and opportunity
dissonance and resonance
divestment and investment
degenerative and regenerative intent.

A critical discernment
between infamous and famous,
natural pathology and spiritual health.

What surprises me
in this current revolutionary purging
of racism
and violent colonialism
and rapacious patriarchalism
and perniciously predative mono-sexism
and almost hopeless anthropocentrism
is the resilience of Amerigo
[also Americus] Vespucci,
extractively merchanting
and mapping
and scientific explorer source
for “America”.

We had, in the 1500s,
The Americas,
South, then North
invested cartographers
led by Mr. Americus.

Indigenous populations,
now become Native Americans
in North America,
also used maps,
if not externally sketched in two dimensions,
then internally felt in spacetime four
spiraling through green seasons
of nutritional communication
bearing future fruit
and healthy seeds
and wealthy wombs.

Then came the United States of America.
Not, more humbly,
United States of North America
in part
because mappers and Earthologists
were not yet in resonant agreement
about whether this wild new West,
although now clearly not East India
with NearEast Indians,
is one united continent
or now eroded into two.

Here,
anthropoids had a choice,
to honor academic investor Americus
as next to godliness,
or,

Recognizing that fame does not become us,
further invest this new global map
in rediscovered new age Western Earth,
lying in sacred direction of divine sunset
for those cartographers
and astrologers
residing in full moon rising Europa

Before these United States of America
and without the bondage of critical events
in EuroCentric historic story,
neither infamous nor famous
indigenous risk takers
and opportunity seekers
built temples
to deities Amerigo
found idolatrous

Which he might also have considered
as further resourced roots
of gods and goddesses
appropriate to Black and Brown and Green Lives Mattering
to RedBlooded EarthTribes
of saints and sinners
resonant and dissonant

Regenerative and degenerative
cooperatively co-invested and competitively divested

Win/win communal and win/lose capitalistic,
interdependently incorporated
and violently individualistic,

Liberal in democratic love
and stingy with constipated constitutional conservatism,
ecofeminist and egopatriarchal,
Green ReBidenuclear
and Red UberTrumpian.

Statues of,
and temples dedicated to, Americus
are difficult to find,
thus,
even more difficult to tear down.

But,
for those who can recreate such sacred history,
systematic theology,
ecology of healthy and pathological relationships,
neurological psychology,
polypathic muse-cology
of polyphonic risk
and opportunity,
the first moment of cultural exhale
invites individual climate purgation,

This much is obvious
to our natural senses,

However,
our second moment of inhale,
this is my returning revolutionary question,

Will we replace academic extractive Amerigo
with Uniting Global States
of GreenBlue Earth?

Or something more idolatrous
like patriarchal
racist
and revengefully capitalistic
UberTrumpian Baal?
NeoColonizing Hate and Fear?
MonoCulturing Anger?
Lone AnthroWarriors of Narcissus?
Naked White Emperors of Americus?
