Sounds more PoliticallyCorrect?

PatriarchalCapitalism
win/lose strategic

or

PolyculturalCommunion

Which ecologically tastes most healthy
and/or

To me,
there’s somethin’ fishy
about all that controlling economic strategy

Survival Through Revival

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who’s the fairest of them All?

If you were hoping for InterFaith Power and Light,
what might you need to better empower
and enlighten your community
during Earth’s Great UnRaveling?

Perhaps Earth needs global power and light leaders
who qualify for selection
only if they have received
the sacrament of pregnancy.

At least in the Abrahamic
patrilinear
monotheistic
monoculturing traditions,
a missing sacrament of regenerativity
raises questions of why pregnancy
and not Confirmation,
a rite of fertility passage,
equally accessible to all polycultural genders.

While Western theological reflection
has been historically silent,
or at least reserved,
about sacred experience of pregnancy
as more spiritually maturing
than mere preparation of organic plumbing,

This added empathic grace
invites transubstantiation of regenerative service
into life through death tranfiguring solidarity.

Pregnancy is emotionally commited
to enlighten and empower future generations
of leaders pregnant with healthiest wealth
of EarthMother commitment
to nurturing and nursing
nutritional nonviolent communication
with multicultural people of all wealthy faith traditions,
with deep listening plants,
with this empowering healthy
and enlightened co-investing,
co-empathic
co-operatively pregnant planet
Earth.

We may need an international solidarity
of InterFaith Power and Light leadership
implanted and transplanted through conferences
less like a sacred non-elite version
of United Nations for Resilient Public HealthCare

And more like an emergency revival campground
for eulogizing indigenous Earth’s unraveling Anthropocene,

A revival of win/win survival
for repentance from patrilinear monopolistic
intolerable anthrosupremacist tyranny,
terrorism,
triumphalism,

A survival revival for seeing violated and raped,
extracted and exhausted,
dissociated nature v spirit worldviews
of MotherEarth

Divine Reiterative
violent and desecrating justice
may need
to review ReStoring Justice
with new empowering
and enlightening ego/ecotherapeutic eyes
of active PregnantSystemic hope.

EcoFeminists may need to repent
of past partisan
competitive corporate missionary zeal
by restoring poly-nominational
EarthMessianic/Bodhisattva Thrival Justice;

Not merely tolerating RightWing/LeftBrain
patriarchal
monocultural runaway over-reach,

But also learning,
actively listening,
exercising,
practicing
non-violent compassion with
and for the indigenous innocents of All
currently extinguishing species.

Mirror, mirror enlightening Earth’s sacred body,
Who’s empowering All united fairness
of pregnant universal hearts,
dancing through revolving spirit space,
nature singing in unraveling time.

A Spectral Blessing

May Unitarian Universalists sustain
active faith
in Both/And integral feelings/thoughts
co-gravitating intentions,
nuanced principles
of UniversalTruth greets UnitarianBeauty.

In these ways,
in this public health emergency
climatic time,
may we join with good faith multiculturing
healthy democratic Others

Less invested in partisan elite-insider knowledge
and also not feeding and watering
non-elite Outsider fear
and anger of sensory-sexual sanity
necessary for building
and retaining a healthy cooperative democracy

And may we always listen for a resilient,
inclusive wealth optimizing
green new nature/spirit Indigenous Deal
co-investing divinely-humane balance

For restoring healthy ego-sufficient peace
and eco-justice,
throughout our interfaith
ecopolitical
cooperative

Earth’s Sound Round

Sound is vibration
begets round sound,
random noise,
white nuances,
dark soulful nights,
symphonic nests,
harmonic internations

Organic macrolife is self and other
ego and eco empowerment
begets voiced enculturing life

Love is god is power
begets co-passions between tribes
of trees,
toads,

Advent of Silent Waiting

Advent of waiting

for 2020 to end
for 2021 to begin
for Christmas
for Hanukkah
for a new federal healthcare administration
for an old misogynistic maladministration to leave
for new hope
for renewed faith
for multicultural communication virtue
for green global communion peace

can be a taxing time of competitive ego-impatience
and/or a time of active
but silently curious ego/eco-systemic
polycultural healing,

A potentiality space
for transformative compassionate communication,
for deep listening
for time’s healthy systemic possibility
to induct anticipation of resonant resilience
peacefully
quietly overwhelming dissonant disabling anxiety.

Multicultural cooperative community intentions
lighten hoary histories
of personal and collective wounds
and straight white patriarchally privileged competitions,
disappointing divestments
from resilient green social-ecological capital

Curiously accessible
only through narrowly balancing
interdependently collusive health systems
devoid of internally win/lose competitive-bullying tantrums.

Dramatic tantrum competitions
are no substitute for long-term strategic
cooperative healthcare systems
courageously supported
by curiously dipolar co-arising appreciation
for multicultural spaces
in compassionately communicating TransitionTimes

Curious 20/20 Ways
anticipating 20/21 green Means
without need of passive patience
and with great cooperatively-held wants
compelling win/win curiously copassionate

Seeking Wealthier Questions

Said the evangelical
straight white male
God-privileged Pastor
to the UU lesbian black ecofeminist
Reverend:

You are not feeding your flock,
You are not spiritually nurturing
with scripture teaching,
You are not preaching

Your faithful community
remains hungry for divinely inspired fulfillment,
redemption,
salvation from Heaven v Hell ambivalence
about moral and civil
Health v Pathology
values v disvalues

Of Patriarchal LeftBrain Thesis
as also Feminist RightBrain AntiThesis
cooperatively regenerating

cooperatively-held
co-invested safety,

Our faithful want empowering wealth
of enlightening non-violent communion,
sacred
holonic co-attachment memories
of Christ’s gospel passion.

Said the lesbian black ecofeminist
in curious response:

You are right
to perceive your sacred
patriarch-worshipping
capital competitive
win/lose redemption accounting,
nature v spirit theological flock

Gathered in individualistic search
for eco-political Truths,
One right-wing Way

Pulpit provided orthodox answers
straight from God’s unwavering
unilateral
tradition-invoking Voice.

But you are wrong
to suggest this is also true
of our faith community,
cooperatively owned and managed,
co-invested in our synergetic search
for better win/win outcome questions

Rooted in natural/spiritual nondualistic experiences

CoVisioning dynamic health empowering Left

AzaRiah’s Earth Requiem

He was too old
to speak of active hope
for ancient creamy dreams
not yet boldly told

Inviting curious homeless nomads
to imagine what we could become
if we were not yet brazenly born
into this time of tragic burning,
flooding,
predicting hunger,
thirst
and coastal drowning nakedness.

Into this epic brown despair
AzaRiah was innocently born
within fading red shadows
of a crumbling
patriarchal
white cathedral.

She never knew an old Golden Era
of endless capital expansion
and monopolistic worship
defying GoldenRules
applied to those like her,
the least and blackest last
of Earth’s Golden SpaceTime Ratio.

AzaRiah’s stormy education
had no LeftBrain Ego v NotEco luxury
to ponder why 2D full moons
are also 4D revolving half-lit norms,

Why spatial nomials
predict temporal bilateral binomials,

Why positive polypaths
predict not not negative
polyphonic ultra-nonviolence,

Why binary Zero
fulfilling One bipolar Zone
predicts double-binary 0/1
wave-linear dipolar co-arising
win/win DNA resplendent Tone,

Why fractal-structured regenerativity
nativity predicts octave spiraling scales
of resonant
resilient non-degenerativity.

She was much too busy
singing with hurricane winds,
listening for flaming conflagrations
of reactionary hate,
inviting still small ecofeminist circles
to dance again with GrandMother Moon
in compassion’s silent storms,
self and other recreating
perpetual healthcare perception
reception

Belonging in grateful silence
where her grandfathers
spoke with terrified tears
of Earth’s great loud longing.

Enough to be Dangerous

Do you know the concern?
“S/he knows just enough
about a through z
to be dangerous.”

I am uncomfortably familiar
with this analysis,
a weapon often wielded
from ivory towers
overly influenced by ideology
masquerading as theory
rooted in statistically measured experience,
severed from historical-cultural,
biological-neurological indigenous context.

Even so,
one feeling I am sure of
my own too robust expertise
is Intolerance.

And, now I am discovering
I have chosen to join a community
with a multicultural intention
to embrace,
or at least tolerate,
all souls,
all species,
all living systems
except those deemed too intolerant,
too wounded,
for multicultural health
as a resonant indicator
of economic and political wealth.

We are exclusively intolerant
of intolerance
because we would provide safe sanctuary
to all souls,
especially victims of monoculturing intolerance,
of win/lose economic and political supremacy,
strategy
gamesmanship.

I find a tension here
between unconditional love
and lacking sufficient curiosity
and courage
to discuss shared values
and disvalues
with those too defensive
too hurt
too lost
too conservative
to tolerate intolerably queer me,
to tolerate the alien Other.

This reactionary intolerance
of intolerant prejudice
bigotry
often straight white male supremacy,
feels like further breeding ground
for misunderstanding,
segregation,
mutual divestment business as usual,
more win/lose devolutionary anger and fear,
more potential violence,
hate,
war

More egocentric privilege
rather than universal ecosystemic love power

Actively hoping to cooperatively uncover win/win
polycultural resolutions
resiliently curious
and courageous
when in the presence of win/lose competitions
intolerant of active hope
for restoring peace
by retiring retributively inflicted punishment
shunning
non-communication
anti-communion
for past sins of intolerance.

I Would Like To Listen More

I would like to hear
with no urgent need to speak
and to respond
without reacting,
over-acting.

I would like to hear
your experience with faith and faithless communities,
theistic
and atheistic,
sacred
and secular believers
and unbelievers,
communal investment positive
and fear and anger
flight and fight negative,
healthy
and pathological,
resonant
and dissonant.

And I would like to hear the same
about political power experience,
partisan
and non-partisan,
green democratic
and libertarian republican,
militaristic
and more peacefully resonant
green new deal ecopolitical parties
and win/win games of cooperative discussion
and win/lose strategies of capital-headed competitions.

And I would like to share
our hopes and dreams
of future faith cooperative ownership
and empowerment party management
for public healthy climate resonance
and private wealthy resilience,

I would like to hear us sing
for our win/win democratic cooperative suppers,
expressed in liturgical dance,
unrepressed fire circles
impressing nature/spirit bicamerals
locally through globally contagious
listening cameras.

I would invite us to share
where we have been
and where we would like to journey together
for our own health
and climate resonance,
And so our children
and grandchildren
and their children
will look lovingly back on us
gathered here this and future days
to claim their shared health inheritance,

“In their lunch space
and climate public residential time
of great unraveling,

They didn’t just eat together,
they dined smart
and swallowed multicultural grace
until so full of wealthy health
they learned to sing and dance
to pray and play
to faith and power
our way
toward this very resilient
win/win
sacred/secular
right/left bilateral
warm accompaniment day
of cooperative interdependence.”

Our children will benefit
from our social-psychological wealthy interdependent health,
of course,
but also political-economic binomial equity-investment,
polypathic and also not not polynomial balance
theological and ecological
great reweaving analogical,
metaphoric and polyphonic
20/20 listening.

Love, Love, Love

Love, love, love.
Every needy thing’s about more
and better
love,

Unless you’re at a political rally.
Then we’re all about patriotic, patriotic, patriotic,
Or Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,
Although if we are not free
to feel patriotic or not so much,
then I suppose what is needed
is more Love, Love, Love.

More active compassion,
more listening mindfulness,
more global, if not universal, consciousness,
more robust and resilient relationships
with co-migrant populations,
plants,
planet.

More, more, more
Love, love, love…

Why do we multiculturally long for secular love
and sacred grace
and win/win karma,
yet speak
and endlessly sing
for such long-winded
and short-winged cooperative relationships?

While investing so little time listening
to him
and her
and competitive/cooperative him/her,
as Left makes Right loves Left
full-circle again.

Creator God speaking theological
and creation goddess listening ecological
EarthTribes in love with loving experience

Of and for healthy ego-
wealthy eco-relationships,
wise as also well-being compassions

Listening to, “Love, love, love”
co-investing every communing harmony
playing and working life
through deeper and wider
active listening for timeless love.
