Better Health Crisis Planning

How much simpler and yet vastly more complex, diversely resonant, past decisions to hire the credentialed professional elite also choices not to hire a charismatic brown-skinned ecofeminist, And how much more resilient urgently cooperative corporate win/win covenant repercussions might have been if we stopped compartmentalizing, and started intersectionalizing, creolizing transubstantiating synergizing integrating regenerating co-arising and co-gravitating Win/Win assertiveness with non-violent communication Training, CoInvestment Practice, Multicultural Restorative Justice experience, Truth and reconciliation, Remuneration of cooperatively-owned health values, Interdependent ecological and theological merit, Compassion wealth If we could hear her outloud notice: I feel sometimes angry sometimes fearful, sometimes courageous sometimes curious, and always disappointed that I took this vulnerable risk to transparently offer all that is my leadership gift and then experience why this is still not enough: Because I lack leftbrain dominant credentials, Because I do not speak with cold white patriarchal dispassion, Because I do not know disconnection as capital-business as usual, Because I will not despair of win/win felt outcomes as if win/lose default unrealistic. What then, following this assertively non-violent vulnerability, this win/win compassion, this transparent noticing of: Systemic Win/lose trending toward Lose/Lose monoculturalism, Systemic racism without racist system conscious intention, Militarized patriarchalism, LeftBrain dominant Either/Or deductive-reductive Linear cause/effect logic, Analogical purpose over metaphoric meaning, MonoCapitalTheology over Integral HealthWealth Win/Win Ecology? What compassionate ego/ecotherapeutic truth and restoring peace and reconciling EarthClimate Justice might we more critically return to next? Perhaps I might find our communal life safe enough to share: How angry I am that I cannot hear our cooperatively-owned anger that both neoliberal and neoconservation of military-industrialized capitalism, that worship of winlose and lose/lose violently transparent intent continues blatantly budgeting to invest in more war, in more hate-crimes, in more automatic death sentences, in more EarthWealth faster and deeper extraction of multigenerational resources, in more corporate short-term blind investors in win/lose landfalls instead of cooperative owner-workers invested in win/win health. I am angry and terrified, deeply and widely win/lose disappointed and lose/lose despairing when I cannot hear and feel and see and know our mutual terror and anger about this Earth and Earth HealthTribe and Positive Energy Democracy CRISIS of Ego v Eco of Yang v Yin of Left v Right of Thought v Feeling of Secular v Sacred of West v East of North v South of Elite v NonElite of White v Black of Either v Or of Bipolar v Dipolar of Competitive Arising v Cooperative CoGravitation of 1 ZeroZone Nomial v Non-0 Zone Bilateral Prime Relationship. I am angry and terrified internal and external lose/lose climates worship Capitalism while marketing greed as Catholic GoodNews of Holy-Elite Predative Communion. Sacred meals and global EarthHabitat separating us in our shadowed silos of nontransparency and nonvulnerably hiding the bread and wine reserves violently defended, if necessary, codependent absence of integrity, positive communication, cooperative EarthClimates of polypathic health, polyphonic resonance, polycultural wealth, universal sacred cooperative employment co-invested in mutual warm listening corporate incorporated health-capitalized rich polycultural paths truth ways means life passions Angry and terrified, courageous and curious.
