Sacred Communion Skills

I try not to speak
ahead of feeling certain
I have something of health value
to wealth contribute
in this our neuro-sensory Commons.

Yet, more curiously significant
for our cooperative longterm resilience
as an EarthTribe communing species

I hope to deeply
and widely listen
for ambiguous
paradoxical
uncomfortably nuanced
and complex emergent feelings
becoming anxious anticipations
and creatively stressed
polycultural examinations
polytheistic aspirations

Inspirations
we each
and all together
have complex relationships
for healthy win/win values,
against unhealthy lose/lose disvalues,
and unresolved win/lose misvalues

To co-invest in integral
synergetic
healthy energetic wealth
of positive co-empathic
whole holonic
holy systemic
relationships

Within EarthTribe’s full
holistic
graceful win/win
verbal and nonverbal
speaking and listening
secular and sacred
win/lose and win/win
community

Communications
of bilaterally co-empathic
deep learning
trauma-freeing
eco-cooperative communicators.

When We Grow

If we don’t know where we are going
this morning
this day
tomorrow
this week
this month
this winter
promising spring

Then we will continue to feel stuck
repressed
depressed
not impressed
with monocultural threats
and monopolistic climate traumas
of random stressful win/lose
and terrifying lose/lose
loss of agency
to choose sacred
cooperative resurrection

Degeneratively stuck
in tragically competitive
aggressive
terrifying
angry raging
bullying
matricidal
militaristic
police state
abortive
disassociated
rightwing feudally anthropocentric
unmindful and vengeful
MotherEarth’s name is mud.

If we don’t know where we are going,
then we are less likely to arrive
in Paradise
than when we do know

Boundaries
between democratic
ecofeminist health

And pathologies
autocratic
paternalistic
monotheistic
monoculturing
defending monopolistic anthro-wealth.

If you don’t know where I am going,
then we are less likely to arrive
EarthTribe panentheistic together
than when you do know

When we are healthy growing
we are more likely to feel alive
curious
anticipation
drawn outside our bodies
talk talk talking minds
our LeftBrain dominant dogmatic shelters
from nature’s polytheistic storms
and peaceful paradise
ecofeminist WholeSystems
holonic spiraling
round emergent
indigenously wise potential

Where and why we can spiritually discern
what EarthTribe wisdom
we have win/win strategically
naturally learned

Trust
and cooperatively co-invested health
are not where we are going
when we do not distrust
kleptocratic RedHanded willful wealth
ego-inside
and anthro v eco
systemically win/lose
devolution outwide

Fearing monotheistic omnipotence
above all humane elsewhere
polytheistic nondestinations
wandering far from resilient wealth
with health-industrialized
Business-As-Usual
rightwing UnChristian
NonFundamentally Indigenous

Rather than wealthiest
from within win/win journeys
in panentheistic
Holy Spirited
compassionate
unconditionally self/other
co-regarded destiny
of cooperative care
for this morning
this day
this week
these creations
this season
transitioning from Holonic Scene
toward AnthroHubris Scene

Unconditionally warm regarding
secularly given win/win
historic learning
as also
sacredly received peace
destinations

Enlightened
and empowering
bicamerally co-discerning

Regenerative
red-hearted
encultured
toward Whole Earth systemic
thoughtful destinations
invoking natural fairness

Reflecting green/blue living
spirited
peaceful
provoking feelings
to fully engage this morning
this day
this season
this year
this decade
this EarthLife shared
in destiny.

When Wondering Why

When wondering why
Earth is
as S/He are

Follow green capital wealth,
he monopolistically advised
for playing more catastrophic
future win/lose games

And yet,
also lead to future win/win learning
with full-spectral
deep mindful
panentheistically organic
green vegetation nature,
and blue sky nurture,
and red skies at night nutrition

Dusky and well-moisturized
nonviolent communication
trauma-informed physically robust health
of a non-anthrosupremacist
nonverbal planet
invites cooperative metaphysical wealth
of a synergetic EarthTribe
unitarian experience

Currently wondering why
Earth is
as S/He are

Where two or three
green gift economies
and green polycultural ecologies,
and green empowering theologies
are thriving worldwide win

Start there to follow co-investments
and here to lead cooperative compassions
toward optimizing personal health
also includes restoring social wealth opportunities
to grow more elegant
and civil
and enlightened
and depolarized
and less stress-triggering

To integrate social
green
panentheistic capital growth outcomes
with red-is-right fisted trauma prevention
and reducing green climate desecration anxiety

Thereby planning to harvest
improved eco-political health care
giving

And global co-empathic wealth
warm
wet
wombed
sacred soul and soil
and sea and seasons

CoPassionate green fragrances
felt
and formed
and functioning

Flowing out past
win/win recognitions
intuited sacred grace

Health Yang-given out

Wealth Yin-received in
futures wondering why
Earth is
as S/He are

Repair Justice to Restore Peace

Before restoring perfection,
perpetual pleasures
of prosperous peace

I remain responsible,
compulsively responsive,
habitually receptive
to repairing win/lose
past competitive aggressions,
negatively suppressive
non-communications

My resilient repentance
must include self-forgiveness
for over-stressed addictions
to trauma repressors,
for failing to do my best
on a bad day

I usually fail to trust win/win strategic play
and work my best truth
healthiest way,
wealthiest co-managed gift
of sensory sensate
not always so elderly sedate
indigenous life

Among compassionate EarthTribe
redeemed through co-empathic curiosity
impressed by organic co-invested communication.

I struggle toward win/win intentional
restorative justice
adeptly mediating win/lose
bipartisan conflicts
exploring nonviolent communionations

At peace
remaining cooperatively responsible
responsively receptive

Quietly
anonymously
relentlessly repairing wounds
of AnthroSupremacist elitist cold regard
felt both outside blaming
and inside shaming

For cashing out of warm wet pleasures
of unconditional regard
too cheaply
too quickly
too sadly

Even for LeftBrain verbal narcissists,
smugly patriarchal
dishonorable corporate pirates

Champions of retributive poverty-punishing
justice of mercenary prison/court/police/military
monocultures
preying on our young
homeless,
stressed,
terrorized
and traumatized

Left rightwing outside
StraightWhiteCorporate patriarchal visions
of never needing to repair
vicious win/lose circles
growing capital monopolies
rooted in monotheistic true health values
for win/lose survival
of the RightWing anthropocentric
inhumane bigoted fittest

Devolutionary pathology
inviting further monoculturing climates
tipping toward
ecocidal trauma ideation,
warm and humid stress
fire and wind wilding
while wicked partisan polarization issues
distract my highest and best
therapeutic intentions

Before restoring perfect
perpetual communication pleasures

And prospering bicameral
dipolar co-invested balance

Cooperatively invested
in co-empathic curious gifts
for a more resonant
resilient
EarthTribe sacred peace.

Health ReNewing Years

Polymorphic design
for kids from one

wondering how to see
local through global
EarthJustice trauma prevention
more clearly through

When we recognize
what inspires healthy polycultural design
of polypathic minds

Is both stress-reductive
good humored

and good trauma-informed contextual governance

Then,
in this Here and Now

Bottoms UpRising

Nothing grows naturally
or resiliently,
and certainly not perfectly,
from the top down
or from the outside in

Including pyramids
and sustainable nutrition economies
and healthy
organic
democratic systems.

Some things
that do grow virally
from outside in
and/or over-powering
top down:

autocracy
cancer
kleptocracy
pyramid schemes
viral colonies
capital expansionism
invasive species
toxicity
pollution
trauma

I once spoke at a condominium meeting
about cooperative democratic values
for self-governance

Advocating for transparent
and inclusive choicemaking

And grassroots community maintenance

And social
and skill-sharing events

Sweat-equity
and time/talent exchange
cooperative economies.

The condominium’s attorney,
whom the large majority of members
were about to terminate
along with the autocratic landlord
investor board chair
who hired him
to come to this annual meeting
and explain,
rationally
and legally,
why the residents could not do
what they wanted to do,
which was mainly to get rid
of him
and his organized trauma
straight-white-male Patriarch,

This smug condominium attorney
stood up
when I had finished
to lecture members
and correct me
about we actually do not live
together in a co-invested democracy;
we live in a from-above Republic.

He was slyly speaking
at both the local condo level
and the national corporate
capitalized Republican level

Because, he continued,
unit owners have elected leaders
given exclusive authority to vote on
governance issues
that the uninformed
and unelected laity
lack responsibility
(and possibly
StraightWhiteMale capacity)
to decide.

He misjudged his audience.

This republican authority from above
and from outside
power-over totalitarian business,
rather than power-within democratic empowerment,
was precisely the problem
this meeting had been organized
to resolve,
by democratic recall.

The attorney had his power analysis
backward.

If we are,
in our core
root residential membership
a healthy
and actively cooperative
win/win intentional
health-is-social-wealth
democracy FIRST
FOREMOST
FOUNDATIONALLY

The grassroots of our self-governance
are more likely to elect empowering
and enlightened republican leaders
with a resonant
and resilient
empowering within view
valuing transparency
and multicultural inclusion

For sustainable local
and global choice-making
from the integral
happy
synergetic
robust top

The celebrated envy
of all our benign
and collaboratively empowering
neighbors

Noticing with multicultural wonder
and polycultural awe
that nothing grows naturally
or resiliently,
and certainly not perfectly
or sacredly
or democratically,
from the top down
or from the outside in.

Probing Integrity

Probation sounds too probing,
kinda dirty
and/or messy,
probably says we didn’t work out,

Then reset

try again
with closer
and more sobering supervision.

We all live within win/win shadows
of non-reprobation
non-violence
non-dominant ambiguous supremacies

Probation
precedes Integration
needing wants to work-out
together,
like hypotheses
and conclusions

Reset win/lose competitions
toward win/win cooperative
re-beginnings

Try again
evaluating wider
warmer
happier
more inclusive
polycultural health
and safer resilience
within heated community
and eco-justice brilliance
social
and political
green feminist implications

Of recognizing
appreciating
celebrating
what all creatures want,
regardless of age
nation
tribe
gender
culture

Need to feel spiritually mentally healthy
and physically safe,

To have an eco-political mastery of voice
contributing to cooperative social agency

Connecting
and reconnecting/re-ligioning
re-communing
with other win/win-intentions
non-violently communicating tensions,
on our better days,
and probably micro-aggressively miscommunicating,
on our lesser co-invest
in good-humored retention
non-retributive
days

When our edibles
render us
nearly inaudible
while on loser probation,
not feeling Earth’s promise
of sacred integrity for all

Where right-brain appositions
reconsider left-brain defiant oppositions
in dialectical-fractal mindfulness probations
both hypothetical
and regenerative
hope-filled bicameral
bilateral
bipartisan
binomial integrations.

Mixing Politics and Religion

My grandfather
seemed wise with years
walking his rural spiritual path
in a relentlessly white
Christian dualistic church
dividing sinful nature
from sacred spirit.

He counseled:
Do not mix
religion and politics.

I wonder
how he would feel
about this mix
of sacred and profane
if he were to meet
my out lesbian activist
senior UU minister.

Clearly
we have mixed up
our religious community
within our local political culture

When we called
this clergy person
we did not ask her
to leave her politics
at any sacred
and ordained door.

On the contrary
we recognize
and celebrate
that she
and we
are politically empowered
and disempowered identities
with naturally spiritual experiences,
family traditions
and theological agendas.

I wonder
if my grandfather would realize:
If calling an out
feminist lesbian
as our minister
mixes religion
and politics,
against his well-meant advice

So too:
Calling a straight
white male
as his first
and second
and third
and fourth
and fifth
and sixth…
pastor
was also mixing politics
and religion
and sexuality

Also against his own patriarchal
not feminist,
monotheistic
not polytheistic,
monoculturing
not polyculturally resilient
healthy advice

Especially for a family farmer
valuing crop
and income diversity
who started out
as an adolescent
relying on organic horsepower,
spirited stallions
and mares
capable of peak experiences
and making ponies
and fertilizing fields
with sacred regenerative practices
for exercising political agency

Giving birth
to future
naturally religious
politically empowered
and disempowered
gender role identified bodies

Yang strong
and Yintegral flowing
wu-wei admixtures of secular politics
and sacred enculturing religious
integrity

Monotheistic
and polytheistic
and panentheistic
and atheistic experiences
cooperatively inclusive

Resiliently polycultural
political and sexual
dynamic communicators
within enlightened tribes
and across empowering species.
