Sacred Ecology

I first ran across this term
Sacred Ecology
while reading Gregory Bateson
sharing a phylogenic
and holonic creolization
of biological ecosystemic language
with others speaking of integrity
as more primal and powerful
than ecopolitical and psychic separations
of ecosystemic feelings-Right Sacred (0)Soul
and egocentric developing language facts-Left Secular (0)Sum,
balanced together
also captured by WinWin Cooperative-Matriarchal Gaming Cultures
following Nutrition’s ReGenerative Flow.

Vandana Shiva,
in Staying Alive
Women,
Ecology,
and Development
might agree with my own growing appreciation
for Matriarchal Reparations.
It’s time, straight guys,
to return Earth to more Her/His
Yin/Yang
cooperative Tipping Point balance,
rather than perpetual patriarchal squabbling.

Outcomes Ms. Shiva prescribes,
with some Taoist-Zeroist embellishment
are as follows:

1. Grow matriarchal localization and eco-regionalization
instead of ever more patriarchal lives matter most globalization–
Which looks a great deal like competitive capital-infested nationalism.
So, a corollary of #1:
Decrease ecopolitical fascination with national patriotic identities
as both too egocentric large and too Earth-uncentric small,
patriotism as anti-matriotic repression
within nationalistic supremacist ego-identities.

2. Yin as WinWin nonviolence
instead of competing over-aggressive Yang domination,
Right with Left bicameral balancing,
as per Edward DeBono and Julian Jaynes,
and maybe Gregory Bateson’s double-bind
notnot Sacred WuWei Ecology,
also spoken of by Ronald Laing
as a pathologist
and by Positive Psychologists
of diverse healing campuses
and therapeutic vocabularies.

3. CoOperative equity
and nondual co-arising reciprocity
instead of overbearing toxic competitions
within global through local
economies and sacred ecological politics.

4. Respect for sacred matriarchal nutritional integrity
of nature-spirit bicameral consciousness
and all Earth’s spiritually-naturally integrative co-arising species.

5. Understanding humans as part of,
instead of as patriarchal masters over,
natural-spiritual ecosystemic climates
and bio-systemic interior and exterior landscapes.

6. United Nations matriarchal protection
of nutritional production,
rather than fake junkfood,
overly-commodified and domesticated,
and put out as totally commercial bullshit pasteurized health assurance realities,
and promotion of biodiversity polyculturation
in cooperative production
and actively balancing Yin/Yang co-arising consumption,
education,
deep sacred ecological learning,
as also matriarchal/patriarchal uniting nations wisdom.

I recently heard some talk about United Nations structural reform.
At first,
it seemed to have nothing to do with Sacred Ecology,
or any active hope thereof and therefore.

Yet, I wonder if we might consider
restricting national delegates
to previously poor and disenfranchised women of color
with their GLBT global through local alliances,
at least for a postmillennial era
for redeveloping
reweaving
climates of cooperative health
rather than more of nationalistic
and sexist
and racist
and violent Other.

This might be called Matriarchal Reparations
for ecopolitical change
driven by (0)Sum WinWin
restorative reforesting peace and justice
for all EarthTribes
uniting integrity as nations
actively supporting WinWin bioregional health networks–
which would most certainly require an upgrade
in our ecopolitical wealth reparations
for restorative EarthJustice.

GirlCutt Voices

What sustains life are sacred values,
so what cannot sustain becomes pathological.

Matriarchy is about nurturing and care-giving,
protecting life and conserving cooperative energies;
yet that implies that patriarchy devolves to controlling
and competitive care-receiving,
destroying life as WinLose necessary
to violently offend against further competing failures of energy.

Patriarchy: Producing for this WinLose generation.
Matriarchy: Conserving for next WinWin generations.

Don’t call that defense,
call it what it is,
offensive militarism
plutocratic nationalism
which acts like baseball fields used to perform in the U.S.:
If you build it
we will come to exploit it.

A fratricidal nationalistic ecopolitics
is also a suicidal WinLose ecologically cynical strategy
against future generations
who will never become,
never emerge
because we refuse to prioritize
WinWin organic nurturing processes
of co-empathic conservation
as mental and physical healthy climates;
basic synergetic hygiene.

Freedom Seekers
was the next generation vision
of our Original Freedom Fighters;
not so much to merely perpetuate younger fighters
rather than seekers first.

Seek and ye shall find.
Don’t seek,
and we still fight on.

This is neither the time to become hypnotized
terrorized
or even merely reactionary against Trumpians
in this postmillennial moment of climaxing climate pathologies,
our perfect storm;
yet it is also a critical time
to not continue being responsive
to patriarchal anthropocentrism
in all its …ism aspish apeish forms.

Why should U.S. women continue paying federal taxes?
Investing further resources in WinLose politics,
when we could, instead,
invest in WinWin cooperative ownership
of Earth as our mutual share-held Commons.

We could instead invest our tax dollars
in planting trees
and building stronger cooperative ownership
including deep learning and healthing ego/ecosystems,
and investing in WinWin ecopolitical,
and personal,
sacred and naturally regenerative games,
work and recreation,
networks of positive matriarchal co-discernment,
springing up from pockets and guilds of mutual subsidiarity.

This is not just a U.S. women’s federal tax boycott,
but all women who feel suppressed
and know oppression of cooperative investment
in and of and for future generations,
all conservationists of Earth’s healthy futures,
including our own,
and our families,
and our neighbors,
all allies boycotting nationalism
to co-invest in global cooperative nutrition-building networks
of WinWin sacred ecology,
both multicultural and polypathic,
creolizing polycultures
of and for regenerative health
from (0)-sum now
through interdependent evermore
Deep Learning Time for CoOperative ReEducation.

Nationalism is a political landscape problem.
Matriarchal eco-repatriation is our ecopolitical climate of resolutions.
All living systems vote yes with our cooperative lives;
no with our degenerative ego-exhaustion.

If not now,
when?

If not you,
whom?

If not here,
where?

If not this regenerative potential,
then what remaining degenerativity?

If not for love,
then why bother?

Military offensive strategic norms
derive from fear that cooperative love
will not and cannot grow powerful enough
on the other side of a line we have drawn
in our minds.

And this fear
is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
For where fear rules our inter-relational policies
and international controlling procedures,
then love must thereby fade
from a fear-mongered collective mind
abandoned to pursue monopoly games,
drawing ever more fading lines
in quicksands of mistrust
in and on Earth’s profoundly robust cooperativity,
standing-by nutritional potential
for mutual loving contentment.

It’s not that competitive WinLose capitalism is bad
or intrinsically patriarchal evil,
it’s more that cooperative WinWin capital investments
work better
longer
for healthy conservation of multiculturing wealth.

No taxation
without equitable cooperative representation.
A classic ring
with a touch of postmillennial zing.

Taxing investments sustaining healthy life are sacred values,
so what cannot
and must not pretend to
sustain ecological wealth becomes pathological plutocracy.

Republican Mothers’ Day

“The ways in which we apply these [polypathic-empathic] abilities
to controlling the excesses of growth and expansion
[by nurturing multicultural empowerment and creolization]
over the next century
will be the greatest [health-wealth nondual] test
of our [r]evolutionary [and democratic WinWin]
sophistication.” D Holmgren, Permaculture, p. 73

Sophistication is not
jingoism
nor tokenism.

Democratic evolutionary sophistication
requires integrity,
invites and nurtures polypathic integrity.

Until our League of Women Voters
becomes a Legion of EcoFeminist Speakers and Listeners,
Leaders and CoOperative Followers as CoInvestors.

Until our Democratic National Party
becomes a PolyCultural International Health Party.

Until our Republican Party
becomes a CoOperatively-Owned EcoTherapeutic Wealth Development Place.

Until each educational school
becomes a permacultural paradise
for HealthWealth Mentoring,
a remedial safe space
for battered and neglected
abused and exploited
Republican girls and women.

Until each Town Meeting
becomes part of an EarthTown CoOperative Discernment Network.

Until each political campaign
becomes a NonViolent Communication progression
of and for EcoPolitical CoOperative Trust
of and for Earth’s Peace as Ego/EcoJustice.

Until supremacist Plan and Type A
competing WinLose Yang
reweaves equivalently
with Plan and Type B
nurturing WinWin Yin.

Until Left deductive dominance
conjoins again with Right inductive nutrition v toxin.

Until masculine strength with endurance
also means EcoFeminist nurturance
through mutual cooperativity.

Until day
becomes not so much nightmare.

Until the post-millennial population of Republican women
becomes an oxymoron,
a population of zero,
Empty Vacuous Set
now singing more resonant harmonies
within Interdependent Matriarchal ElseWhere.

The Daily Show and Tell

Dear Toni,

I saw you on The Daily Show
the other day
having your way
with Trevor,
or was it the other way around?
Not sure.

I’m also not sure where we first went wrong,
but I’m sorry for once having thought you my dumb blonde beauty.
Clearly this is not who you are
as you continue to play our family’s conservative version
of Twinkle Twinkle Patriotic Star
and Patriarchal Stripes,
Flags and National Anthems.

Slow as deep rich Honey,
if you wrap yourself any tighter
in our conservatively-speaking at-risk Patriotic Flag,
I worry you might not breathe health both in and out
for long-term regenerativity.

I began hearing you as not just narcissistic
and uncaring about the health and security of my Galveston grandkids,
not to mention our whole extended family
of white male and female children
along coastal Texas over the next 100 years,
but sometimes I think you still confuse healthy conservatism,
which goes way back in our matriarchal nurturing days and ways,
with what sounds more like nihilistic condemnation
of any regeneratively humane future
for economic and politically empowering ecological health,
nondually co-arising like Grandmother Moon
and Gaia Earth,
who gave birth to matriarchally conservative nurturing me,
and therefore also still organically conserving biosystemic you,
my honey sweet smart girl.

I wish you had spent less time defending your right to freely express your mind and feelings,
which, indeed, brother Trevor was not contesting,
so you could have spent more time sharing your mindfulness
about our healthy and secure future,
which continues to be at degenerative risk
by further white male plutocratic domination,
as if patriotically Christian and Enlightenment
ForeFathers would have wished to see
my grandkids moving from Galveston,
toward Houston,
our future frontier of new-coastal engulfing waters.

Setting aside your distaste for all things Progressive-Futuristic,
including the vastly dusty tomes of academically orthodox science
and LeftBrain dominant deductive-only facts,
and evidence of both ecologically regenerative
and anti-ecosystemically degenerative futuristic fantasies
about climate change as urgent climate pathology,
even setting all this aside,
please review our U.S. conservatively patriotic
Right of Left Progressive-Liberal
devil’s advocate agenda.

Somehow I think you lost the first chapter
in my Matriarchal WoManual.
Avoid inappropriate touch and speech at all times;
but also embrace therapeutic touch and speech favoring, as positive,
(possibly even RealTime Millennial Progressive)
future regenerative times.

Please avoid merely repeating past degenerative conservatism
as if beautiful ecopolitical women were merely dumb blind blondes
within our ecologically multiculturing marketplace.

I appreciate that you do not see yourself
as a victim of history,
but more as a victorious Devil’s Advocate,
and I love it when you mention this
despite U.S. women receiving enfranchisement rights
even after Black male property owners in several Northern States.

But, darling,
how on Mother Earth do you think we received this right to vote
for Donald Trump
rather than the candidate who would otherwise become the first woman U.S. President?
Do you think our patriarchal faithful Fathers
climbed off our Mothers in bed
and said,
Oh, yes, you want it?
Sure. Here, it’s yours.

How do you think your rant
against marchers and protesters
sometimes shouting Women’s Lives Matter Too,
your stark disapproval of those who physically demonstrate
that they have not had your same benignly secure relationship
with your rather too-dear U.S. Flag and Patriotic-Only-Need-Apply Anthems,
as heard within post-millennial virtual realities
of Devil’s Conservative Advocate supremacy?

How do you think your active disbelief
in the economic and political necessity,
or even historical effectiveness,
of strident speaking and marching
in public and private spaces and times
would feel to your maternal Elders
during the post Civil War era,
who had no other cooperatively regenerative power?

Perhaps not quite whiney enough?

I am sorry to say,
as I boundlessly love you,
and always will,
I am quite sure your conservative great great grandmother
would be pissed as hell at this,
her post-millennial offspring,
playing at Daddy Trump Devil’s Advocate;
joining the continuing LeftBrain dominant paternalistic
plutocratic team,
when she so vigorously marched and protested for this opportunity for you
to vote for our first woman U.S. President
of a bicamerally Matriotic-Patriotic
Right-Left balancing
post-millennial RealTime U.S.A.

Your Virtual UnReality Shows
you learned well to help yourself stay away
from inappropriate touch and speech of others
you feel a reactionary need to overpower,
but have yet to begin
this deeper maternal ecotherapy
to always and everywhere regeneratively touch and speak
through Mother Earth’s cooperatively sustaining climates
and landscapes of health and safety
as nutrients worthy of your positive nurturing
(despite also known as post-millennial eco-politically progressive)
for all EarthTribe’s multicultural future regenerations.

Don’t date yourself so much
as an anti-feminist blonde beauty
overly glutted with the conservative diastatic age
of General Eisenhower,
as yummy as that was at the time.

But, this is your time.
Seize it.
CoArise with your cooperative matriotic duties
to speak wisdom
to LeftBrain supremacist Trump Cards.

With at least 7 healthy generations of love,
GrandMother Moon

ebbing my Yang sway
to flow our Yintegral balancing day

Autumn’s Failing Consciousness

New England’s post election trees
shed a few teary waving leaves.
Morning sky tries to shine resilience
yet lingers in ominous grey overcast
of silent waiting through despair.

In Michigan and Wisconsin and Pennsylvania
tens of thousands of mothers
who cherish their daughters
are beating themselves up about yesterday;
longing for a do-over
to avoid confidence in false predictions
of safely voting their libertarian ecoconsciousness,
or too quietly staying home
to rake falling fertile leaves.

Failing leaves feel their personal mortality,
too old, over-extended, to survive another bitter winter
of ex-patriation
while maternal nurturing root systems survive through hibernation,
deeply embedding in Earth’s nutritional compost
of yeasty faith,
waiting for another Advent ecopolitical Season.

Not a branch,
not even a twig stirs from frosty lethargy
wondering Why?
Why would we decide slavery must be illegal
because immoral
yet sexual and capital and incorporated predation
remains legally and morally ambiguous,
as if wealth of male supremacist nobility
were God’s full harvest of regenerative moral gifts,
excusing by betraying grace
this fortunate entitlement
of LeftBrain enduring cockiness
to welcome this winter’s misery,
Earth’s hiatus from integrally nurturing ecology.

Hiding even the sun’s radiant morning glory
from disunited piles of leaving ballots
already preparing to fertilize richer soils
in four more autumnal climate years.

Rise Up Islamic Sisters

Rise up
my African Sisters
speak your truths
of intimacy and death
internal monopolizations of feeling desperately dark
suffocating
with hatred and fear and anger
about your man,
your brother
about your here and now lack of relationship.

Listen up
Islamic Sisters
to these Sisters of Perpetual Wisdom
of self-and-other emancipation:

Husband,
your intimacy and passions
fill me with emptiness and longing
rather than fertility and belonging.

Husband,
you treat your milk cows
and that lazy ass dog with all her pups
better than you treat me.

Brother,
your fascination with hatred
technologies of deadly anger,
your greed for Lose-Lose attention
and respect
replace your comprehension of dignity
and producing life-giving outcomes
to regenerate attention,
interest,
consciousness of positive values
within our ancient culture, spirit, religion,
passing forward to our children’s hope and faith
balancing life with death,
in cooperative favor and support
for this deep ecological love
of intimacy and respect
and mutual cooperative hospitality,
we call “Allah” together
co-messiahs
linked through time and space
of regenerating hope.

Sisters
speak your international
yet intimate truths
of good and evil
life and death
regeneration of abundantly warm feelings
and decompositional analysis
of where your young men go so astray
of what is Islamic-normative
to be fully human
to become a man
worthy of our Splendid Sisters.

Author’s note:

Perhaps it is just me, and, if so, then I am about to expose my embarrassingly remedial ignorance once again. But, ISIS and all the “Islamic” hatred and anger of which they have become iconic, feels like an overwhelmingly young to middle-aged male dominated late adolescent cultural gasp reacting against the comparative freedom and wisdom of  a cooperative and egalitarian society with emergent strong polycultural values, whether tribal, or nationally, or even religiously, labeled.

If so, then perhaps Islamic women will peacefully engage their own cooperative internal revolution, speaking honestly and bravely and truthfully to their brothers, even their husbands, but probably not their fathers. That could get a girl killed in some unfortunate places where Allah’s sense of inclusive faithfulness and solidarity as sacred Host feels climatically absent in this suffering time.
