Weapons Down Anger

Anger is such a useful learning silence tool, when not too short-term ballistically reactive, weaponized. I have seldom noticed when my own hot-burning issues cold turn into a Self and Other harsh punishing vengeance weapon. When left unnoticed, unmedicated, unmeditated by forgiving lack of ego-supremacist humility By explicit co-invested intentions of nonviolent verbal communication informed by nonverbal win/win felt intuition, bipartisan green consensus For paying forward residual profits of bicamerally balanced co-passionately held co-investments Now silently neglected in a more long-term LeftBrain dominating colonizing monoculture of win/lose shame and blame Other Alien Enemy Xenophobic supremacist lingering long before and after royalist reactionary revenge, Playing with BusinessAsUsual Zero/Sum Closed degenerating risky systemic compromises Falsely agreeing to disagree about who profits more from Mutually Assured Destruction yet feeling everybody loses in an overheated war, no one left to silently reflectively keep score Detente camouflaging unresolved potential for healthy and safe win/win cooperative green economic and political integrally compassionate resolution. Perhaps this angry turn to burning out red hot revenge, retribution, win/lose capital monopolistic, vengeful and jealous, self-righteously extractive and divinely-inspired overbearing patriarchal straight white monotheistic Omniscient ego-saving face of nation-states reporting dull Loser unhealthy climate fading statistics sometimes more masochistic depressed about deserving emotional and erotic neglect and physical dispiriting abuse from EcoFeminist Earth CoArising in other less than sanely sacred spaces, sadistic capitalistic gotcha games Short-circuited most win/win effectively by bodhisattva-grade Win/Win co-invested commitment LeftBrain out loud disagreeing against RightBrain felt Othered depressed repressed suppressed disagreement feelings Cognitive/Affective co-punishing dissonance stress chronic underlying trauma of silence rewarmed toward therapeutic potential co-arising cooperative reflection While quietly accepting and silently celebrating renewing awareness of inhumane win/lose Business As Usual rediscovered as less powerful and health enlightened than win/win cooperative co-investment in democratic co-governance sharing caring about all Lose/Lose traumas, big and small, recent and long ago Renewing spacious multiculturing revivals recommiting to humane/divine Win/Win restorative justice, therapy of active musing polycultural polyphonic polypathic joy of Open Organic Systems EarthTribe's regenerative life inclusive love rerooting sacred hope That agreeing what is LeftHemisphere health care giving communion and receiving resilient resonance is also RightHemisphere intersectional safety secure unitarian interdependence, serene universal security When and where short-term uniting ego/eco dancing dopamine greets long-term universally co-passionate singing serotonin As night dawns dance revolving into each new ego/eco-systemic bicameral play day Remembering silent righteousness trailing stone cold anger silent sails back through pre-history of polyvagal neuro-systems Long long before international anger became such a useful learning silent tool when not RightWing fired up Leading to ballistics as if short-term war might finally lead to peaceful climate health As nonviolent co-empathic silence leads toward active cultures musing forth healthiest compassion.
