How To Enchant

I finished reading Sharon Blackie’s Enchanted Life yesterday.

Kind of a How To Do It,
a how to fix BusinessAsUsual textbook
organically rooted in animism,
I suppose a theologist
and maybe an enchanted ecologist,
might duly note.

Although animists are not distracted, usually,
by systematic theologian’s theories and conjectures
about becoming resilient sacred healthy wealth.

Animists are more practical theologians,
learning by dynamically doing
cooperative relationships
and mutually respectful reflections
on these sacred communions,
and sometimes even competitive eco-relationships
competing with MotherEarth’s sense of revolutionary timing
to build our richest sufficient time
as resiliently and fluidly as possible.

Practical theology,
like good pastoral theology,
like good non-violent communication
and being climate manifest
and becoming destiny
and doing dynamic health-skill sets,
is about how we are each called
to fix pathology,
to live every green enchanting day
by cooperatively communicating to restore
full benign being communion
and revolutionary becoming
and polypathic doing
bicamerally ego/eco
left/right
yang/yin
polynomial/polycultural
natural/spiritual practically speaking
as we make everyday bilateral choices
for our own and for our grandchildren’s enchanted thinking
and animist feeling,
seeing 2020 through both global and local EarthJustice lenses.

I do feel a little more positive
glimpsing ecstatic hope
by actively seeking enchanting justice pathways
ego-homeless
in a pilgrim journalist kind of way,
longing to fully be Here with Now,
Space with Time communal
YangResilient with YinResonant co-relational

By doing nature’s robust spirit
investing in wildly evolving forests,
boundary areas,
WinWin frontiers of blissful everyday eco-centeredness
chasing rainbows,
musical octaves,
fractured fractals,
safely enchanted in and on,
with and for, EarthJustice

Enchantment entitling first through last lived chapters,
limned by resilient
resonant
revolving nightdreams.
