Health Addictions

Health brings freedom to live intentionally resplendently maturely resonantly integrally regeneratively compassionately resiliently kindly. Freedom is personal, but also social, political but also economic, ecological but also theological. Health requires freedom from addiction to beliefs: Some people are born to rule and own Earth, while others are born to be serfs and slaves, laborers and frightened/angry addicts. Some people are born to be born again, while others are born to be unredeemed, idol worshipers, poor, sinners. Some straight males are born to be White Evangelical Supremacists, while others are born to be Other. Some people are born to extract from healthy Earth as they choose to expand personal and corporate materialistic "wealth". Others are born to be entertained by, and sometimes envious of, these violent stories of capitalistic rape and plunder. Multicultural dreams of inclusive democracy, expanding throughout all cooperative economic strata, encompassing all politically engaged genders, all nations and tribes, all positive energy systems to regenerate a global health network of wealthy freedom for all interdependent creatures globally here below, and those who fly, and revolve, and generate light power energy, These are ancient indigenous dreams of non-addicted trust, non-dualistic Truth, polycultural free-trade outcomes for EarthDwellers, EarthPatriots EarthLovers EarthSabbath Worshipers. Regardless of age gender race left-brain dominant enculturation, colonizing violent history, capitalism's win/lose supremacist games, energy's zero-sum secularizing theology, degenerative ecological fears and angry unfree fossil fuel addiction, consumer-driven overpopulation, lack of freedom to sleep safely, to live healthy outside in familial communion with Original Sacred EcoFeminist Earth, etc. The Dali Lama, born to sainthood? a view I doubt he would support, says his religion is kindness. Perhaps his spirituality resonantly respects EarthMother's kindness and unkindness-- much easier to do outside than inside a dimly addictive unfree temple.
