If you have some negative judgment
aimed directly at me,
I prefer,
in fact require,
expect,
demand you verbally
and directly confront me
and only me
with that distancing blame,
assaulting my ignorance
and failures of compassion,
too active dispassion,
furthering Earth's emerging win/lose dissonance,
violence,
toxic climates
and egocentric narcissism;

Or, informed more fully by...Read More

What I want,
probably need,
from people of compassionate
active
positive faith

Integrity,

Integral cooperative ownership

Intimately transparent management
stewardship
facilitation
multiculturally vulnerable mediation
among and within Earth's holonic
holy
living webs of compassionate communication,

Premium Member Homage to Integrity
Mental and physical health
require,
and contribute to,
Integrity.

Integrity has two faces,
internal and external,
climates dominant and subordinate,
cultures poly-inclusive and mono-segregated,
bilateral frames of reference
dipolar
co-arising
appositional.

Internal integrity
anticipates left with right hemisphere confluence
and is anxious when diverse left v right experiences
unfold cognitive/affective dissonance,
diminished think/feel resonance,
fear and anger

Premium Member We Began Somewhere
We all began somewhere
not our own
and not on our own.

All life began somewhere
within Earth's regenerative systems
not our own,
as did Earth
Her EcoSelf.

No one is autonomously entitled
to sustained ego-awareness,
much less self-promoting narcissism.

Earth began someplace
beyond His/Her own north v south,

Speaking With NonBully VoiceBoxes

Dissociative injustice,
like racist slurs and disinvestments,
retributive oppression
for not being SWM enough,
has ecological roots
in LeftBrain anthro/ego-centered fruit
of fragile disconnected autonomy,
against all competing odds
still struggling to win
against all other elitist competitors
for greatest capital gains
over losses.

Oh say, did you notice
a national predative anthem?
Moving immediately
urgently,
without reflection of starlight

From waving flags predicting elite weapons
fueled by complexly masculine

of mutual defensive risks

It occasionally  occurs to me,

Stagnancy
Stagnancy is an illusion, that I've been choosing.
Barriers of the mind, are the worst kind.
Trapped in the pain, escape is hard to gain.
Drowning in sorrow, makes it hard to see tomorrow.
It feels like I've been walking with a blindfold.

I've heard it said,
and seen it done,

"This currency of capitalism
is the very venomous root of all evil."

And, I've heard good cooperative capitalists say,
perhaps a bit too loudly,

"Not money, this root,
merely innocent paper and metal-based resource,
but human natural win/lose evolutionary greed,"

Often,
personal issues are not entirely about some violation of rights,
but also about politically empowering responsibilities

She knows what it means,

My LeftBrain dominant voice

To think accurately,

resiliently
requires tuning out RightBrain dissonant feelings
