Unfinished Exodus

As Exodus tells his story,
Moses was compelled by God
and then invited,
commissioned by inside/outside Voice,
and bv voices of Israel’s extended people
to lead them through forty desert years
of sometimes nomadic wins
and mostly immigrating losses
in a competitively shared wilderness.

just as they approached the Promised Land’s border,
now matured
multigenerationally seasoned
regeneratively prepared for entry
into this great Middle Eastern creolization journey
in-between Earth’s secular/sacred history
of multicultural peace-making,
win/win environmental envisioning
and compassionate planning
and cooperative implementation,

Just as Moses could climb a sacred yang mountain
and look across rich heavenly green Promise
in Yahweh’s chosen yin valley
of profoundly interdependent
complexly transcendent

Moses suddenly understood right then
right there,
he would die before he could live
among those who would cross over
to complete this epic historic pilgrimage
toward compassionate climate of Promise,
both secular and sacred majesty,
patriotic epiphany
of resilient
healthy demo/theo-cracy.

I see our post-millennial Boomer regenerative process
restoratively wandering through this win/lose forty year
post-industrial wilderness
toward epic climate pollution risks
and monocultural loss
for polycultural wins
of ego-left/eco-right opportunity.

with now,
on this very cusp of 2020 robust revision,
I know we will not live
to see health optimizing
resilient Promised land and waters,

Although I have lived and loved to locally
and globally,
and politically,
and economically long to grow
migrant green integrity.

And my autonomous left hemisphere feels disappointed
unfairly deprived about this unfinished migration,
Frustrated because cooperative liberal love,
active compassion,
is so obviously healthier for all travelers riding Earth,
wealthier than competitive fragmenting mistrust,
conserving climatic rage
about our globally
and locally unfinished industrial business.

At the same time
my dipolar interdependent right hemisphere
remains timelessly silent
on topics of ego-left mortality.

S/he may not distinguish
between first yang-patriarchal inhale
and last yin-matriarchal exhale
because this Zen ZeroSoul,
this Holy Nature/Spirit
is one
with that of Moses,

With all Messianic pilgrims,
With all bodhisattva peace mentors,
With restorative peace and justice integrity Advocates,
wandering a post-industrial green wilderness.

Polypathic Moses
of Earth’s great exodus Rapture
into unfinished healthier life
wealthier transformational business
of regenerating Promise,
for transgenerating lands and waters,
mountains and river-valleys,
mortally unfinished transcendent Eminence
and immortally interdependent Imminence,
Yang universal being with Yintegral uniting
resilient becoming
yet unfinished Exodus
into climatic healthy Promise.




Baby Boomers and Bummers

Most Baby Boomers started out hoping to leave life
having continued our Great ReGenerativity,
our progressively recycling becoming through economic extraction,
boundless growth of optimal Win-Wealth is also Win-Health.

We are the last generation
hoping to autonomously leave more than we have taken in.
To give back,
to pay forward investment in Earth’s cooperative health and safety insurance,

In this early post-millennial era,
we have a great transitional cultural dissonance
between those who continue believing it is merely realistic,
rationally nihilistic,
to give up on this hopelessly disconnected non-renewable dream,
already not accessible to our post-millennial consciousness
of internal and external climate pathologies.
And, on the other hand,
there remain those of relentless active faith
that we are here at this time,
invested in this transitional moment,
increasingly WinWin
continuously short- and long-term evolving time
to learn from Father Sun and His revolving voice of Wind
to balance healthy continuous consumption
with wealthy production of renewables;
that life is for continuous cooperative reinvestment
and not time for ignoring WinLose waste,
sub-optimization of energy’s continuous potential resources.

As we turn from seeking regenerative continuity
for the span of one humane natural generation,
toward the span of one humane-divine Earth’s life span,
old territorial WinLose issues,
flying under banners of nationalistic patriotism,
fade into the waste stream of survival of the bullyist,
more continuously renewed by a new Earth Tribal cooperative ownership,
a self-with-other WinWin identity nurturing caregiving and receiving,
regenerative health as all things not degeneratively hoarding wealth
of nations,
of individual egos,
as this new Left with Right double-binding ego/ecoconsciousness
evolves renewably and continuously accessible.
