Keeping America Safe

A prayer for God to bless NativeAmericans is also a reminder of traditional political mindfulness, basic awareness of our economic investments in security. No one "keeps" this confederation of uniting states safe with alien immigrants unless we invite them. Second, prayers for sustaining safety assume the U.S. is safe now, and/or implies concern that we are at alien risk. There are many ways to become ecologically and economically and politically and culturally and physically and mentally and spiritually safe and unsafe. We are each on a continuum of health v pathology as individuals, as is each of our States, as is this Nation as a whole ecopolitical system. Third, "America" refers to two continents, one to the north and one to the south. A U.S. safety and health security measure could both be and not be appropriate health and safety policy and procedure for this quartile of Earth. It seems to me we are heading in an ecologically unraveling, and therefore increasingly unsafe, direction, more immediately for our coastal nations and, yes, still somewhat united Red v Blue aligning States. Fourth, "safe" for and from what alien influences and why? Traditional conservative minds tend to exegete the Preamble to the Constitution and perhaps even the Declaration of Independence. Here we read we are united in healthy pursuits of happy prosperity. We also read we are uniting with nutritional freedom to articulate a multicultural relationship with God, free of dominating, power-over controlling religious-political constraints, restraints, and economic leverages or punishments against alien spiritualities. Preferably no inquisitions for bowing to the East. If we all did, then God might see the humor of AnthroCentrists bowing and worshiping toward each Others' rear ends; Find it good and proper and call us a full polyculturally wise day mutually inviting co-immigrant humility. Does separation of religious from self-governance declarations and constitutions intrinsically grow tension with our desire to be safe for ecopolitical prosperity? This was, and perhaps remains, a radical social experiment, in part because diverse religious systems, institutions of intended regenerative self-perpetuation toward safe and healthy governance throughout Time's eternities, are the nutritional stuffing of political powers over and powers with, powers under and powers without. The multiculturing of a shared safe and healthy politically powerful Teleology is not ecologically equivalent is not educationally equivalent to the dumbed-down secularization of U.S. society and supremacist culture. We both under- and over-sell our political ecology of multi-enculturation purging ourselves of faith and empathic trust in each other, faith in Earth's creative cooperative health and multigenerational sustainability; Bleaching such faith out of public EarthFirstNative discourse, especially public education, and most especially out of deep listening-learning mindfulness about our own uniting states of ecopolitical trust and alien mistrust and learned anthrocentric distrusts, our positive faiths and negative ego-ethnocentric prejudices within our interior landscapes and across the North and South American Natural Landscape of a remarkably ecologically co-evolving, polyculturing, dynamic-revolving Earth. Such science and education can only predict closed-system entropy, while nature-spirit deep learning comprehends open-systemic co-empathic loves, integrities, nondual truths as symmetrical beauties, multiculturing evolution of Time our regenerational transgenerational selves. To keep the U.S. safe from absence of health through ecological learning from past successes and mistakes, to keep us healthy for future generations, which is your priority? 1. Aiming deadly and toxic ballistics at whoever we currently consider aliens and rabid infestations inflicting terror outside our own boundaries, or 2. Aiming health as ecopolitically cooperative policies and procedures at the aliens and rabid infestations within our own skins, and stated boundaries. Prophets, Medicine Men, preachers and teachers, shamans and seers, saints and messiahs and bodhisattva warriors, mystics and gurus, even motivational speakers and Anger Management therapists throughout the history of languaged culture itself have looked into our futures within every color and multicultural creed to remind us we will become positively known for our regenerational love, our evolving capacity to cooperate, as generously and gratefully as ecopolitically possible, until no monoculturing terrorist would choose to live in his lesser environment of fundamentalist exclusions of nurturing-fertile matriarchy, such as that co-mentored with Gaia as Earth-BioSystemic EcoPolitical Intelligence, Regenerative Health. Our best health and safety American offensive for positive change on Earth remains as always a multiculturally integrative loving ecopolitical internal constitutional defense. We already declared our interdependent political will to grow freedom from supremacist nationalistic-religious tyrannies against the good cooperative multicultural nutritional faiths of our co-evolving Elder Tribes. We have already written a Constitution for co-arising nondual states of mutual-enlightenment, for multicultural ecopolitical health and safety and prosperity outcomes. We just need better practice. Our lack of adherence to our own cooperatively shared nature-spirit traditional ideals threatens further climatic overly-competitive, ballistic distrust and monocultural devolution, disarray, dissonance, decay. Keeping Earth safe may be a monotheistic mandate. If so, we become one united state of being free for further multicultural evolution of health and globally inclusive climatic safety. May our multiculturing God continue to bless all our North and South Americans to bless all our polyculturing healthy EarthTribes.
