Power Is Personal

So, is this personification of political systems? asked the organic ecologist. Or politicization of intimately yet transcendently secular and sacred personal economic-nutritional analysis of health-wealth trends? asked the macrosystemic economist, in his rather too long projecting way of exploring means and medians and in-betweens. And both? asked the theologian after listening to each as Other, DefaultNetworkAssociations (DNA) betwixt enscriptured lines of historical metaphonics. Just because we do not reside together, sharing identical labels, need not mean we journey apart. Just because my neighbor, my enemy, those I don't know, those I fear, former friends and family who have angered me believe in a personal God the Supreme Straight White Father theology does not mean they, like I, can not also feel Earth's climate like an interpersonal Gaian ecology of healthy sacred regenerative emergence into a win/win superlative rapturous future life together more healthy than residing degeneratively apart. We all speak the same emotional language. Humor and health, good and bad, speaks and sings and dances and enacts and dirges and reacts a universal win/win, win/lose, lose/lose bilateral climate language; eco-political heaven and hell, and all that lies more mundanely in-between killing us climate softly. Just as adolescent loss of a lover to suicide steps into an endless shaming/blaming toxic story of depression, ego-repression, ecosystemic suppression of positive affect, of hope for healthy relationship, of faith in wealthy resonant communication, So too it is not theologically or ecologically or ego-rationally insane to fear, and become angered by genocide of our entire species shamed by our own stubborn win/lose dissociation, climate capital-pigheaded stiff-necked degeneration, rabid suicide ideation through lack of Golden Rule Rapture, win/win integrity, theo-eco-ego triumphal integration.
