This InBetween Climate

This in-between place
and time
and space
is queer.

Neither the straightforward seer
of new beginnings
nor the recalcitrant rear
of old sweet and sour endings.

Bicameral climates of transition
listen for our most humane imaged left
and see through our most divine beauty right
symbiosis,
complexly bilateral metaphor,
secular and sacred transubstantiation
substantiating disempowering empowerment of creolization,
of co-investments, elite and non-elite,
of left investors
co-arising right effluent divestment
away from competing capital-headed
Business As Usual

In-between lose/lose alpha-point of birth
and win/win omega warm felt beauty
harmonious destiny,

Sacredly holistic resonance
co-passioning left-hemisphere resilient liturgies

Of songs verbally and non-verbally danced
rhythms entranced
co-gravitating with and toward trans-regenerative stories
of competitively deep curious and queer cooperations,
steeped in-between courageous analogical health
as meta-phonic wealth,

Ecologically robust polypaths
toward polyphonic metaphor.

Departheid Attachment

He once met a girl named Divestment,
She once heard a boy name Detachment,
they tangoed as two
and tangled til blue,
Then bore a misery child of deportment
divisioned DePartment.

S/he once met a god for Attaching
and heard herself named for Reproaching,
they tangoed as two
then tangled til through,
Then bore a hope for encroaching
HealthGrowing

There once was a feminist named Courage
who met a patriarch named Curious,
they tangoed as two
then tangled, tis true,
Creating compassions less Furious.

Faith in Politics

Faith in politics is not popular.
Other than optimistic civics teachers
and elected office holders,
faith feels troublesome
when mixed with social empowerment
over Others.

“Others” holds and hides broad diversity:
children
women
people of color
prisoners
slaves
indentured servants
pets
cattle
sheep
farms
plantations
ranches
watersheds
melting ice caps
rising sea levels
polluted air
worn out topsoil
sewage disposal and highway and military systems
industrial production and consumption and devolutions…

Good faith in power
is faithful to power WITH Others,
WITH win/win co-aspirations,
and ego/eco-active non-ZeroSum hope
for health increasing more
openly contagious co-integrity.

Bad faith in power
builds reasons to justify
power against and over Others,
with win/lose evolutionary ZeroSum assumptions
about economic closed entropic-trending systems
currently favoring Western white privilege.

The faith

[belief
reason
emotional and cognitive intelligence
left-brain win/win active hope
and right-brain felt love, compassion, integrity, co-empathy]

of Messiahs

[and Bodhisattva PeaceCorp Warriors, global mustard seed planters,
Hiawathas and Renewable Energy (inside and out) Advocates,
and Ancient EcoFeminist Wisdom Healers]

is rooted in early cooperative intent
to push together toward light

[integral harmony singing Voices of Other
health
mutual empowerment
happy, inviting climate therapy
potential for personal
and global
integrity].

Good faith in politics
seeds active hope
for multicultural empowerment,
co-passioned love for synergetic health
as also true organic wealth.

Faith in healthy empowerment
is as original

[seminal
ZeroZone right-brain prominent
sacred
sacramental
integral
creative
rebirthing]

as our first pilgrimage
from EarthMother’s womb
into this timeless light
of healthy passage
into interdependent passions
yet including autonomous
re-creative tension
promulgating win/win revolutionary intent.

Healthy intent
to see with both eyes equally

[curiously
courageously
secularly Left-Either/Or
and sacredly Right-Both/And
cooperatively win/win
nutritionally strategic]

To hear
both future right-healthed
multicultures
and past left-wealthed
polycultures
listening with
and then speaking up and out for organic
Faith in health-power
multipoly-pathic Voices

Still wise enough
to avoid monopolizing integrity’s Light.

BiPolar Questions

If my right hemisphere
deep roots around in dreamy primordial emotions
longing to see morning’s money sunlight,
to color early midmorning questions
green ideas
emerging bilateral conversations
dialogue about mystery
and overly-commodified history,

Does my left hemisphere
emerge stems
then leaves
then fertile flowers, articulate?

then seeds, implicate
healthy integral potential
longing to incarnate portentous
afternoon’s pretentious communal activities
preparing to sing and slow dance summer evenings

While repurposing reverent questions
worthy of a night’s rooting
right hemisphere prominent
meditations.

Touching With Kindness

Some parents and cooperative school teachers
and classroom and bus aides and drivers
are discussing government regulations
restraining transportation providers
from providing therapeutic touch,
because of an over-compensation
for emotional dysfunction behaviors
leading to appallingly irreverent touch.

Toxic touch critical events
predict long-term non-lifegiving,
non-wellbeing consequences
in young
vulnerable,
transparently frustrated learners

Typically,
healthily born with WinWin internal/external co-relational cognitive assumptions,
confluent expectations,
positive neural receptivity is therapeutic
while negative interceptions are toxic,
pathological.

We discuss our unhappiness
about current administrative restraints
on giving healthy therapeutic touch,
but no such caring restrictions apply
to receiving healthy
appropriate
therapeutic touch
from our wounded,
Win/Lose fragile,
fragmented,
cognitive-affective dissonant disarranged
kids.

We seem to be heading in a direction
that would more positively hypothesize,
Despite past risks of exposure to toxic touch,
and apathetic untouch,
we do not want to restrain therapeutic touch
with our arms and hands,
our feet walking and dancing in cooperative solidarity,
stepping out rhythmically, together
with our voices of kindness,
mouths speaking and singing
with ringing patterns of kindness,

Integrity fully-embodied
to support resilient WinWin therapeutic touch relationships.

One of my daughter’s school transportation providers
learned therapeutic massage from a yogi,
Who began their first hands-on learning class
by reassuring those about to receive a student’s touch,
and those about to give their first intentionally focused massage,
that there is only one mistaken choice to avoid,

Massage, any form of verbal or non-verbal touch,
turns from therapeutic default
through toxic abandonment of communication, untouched apathetic restraint,
and also when too aggressive, much more so when actively violent,

Toxins,
nonverbally and/or verbally non-communicating counter-therapies
are Win/Lose neural neglect,
lack of therapeutic mindfulness,
to not touch by therapeutic intent at all,
whether with our WinWin intending hands
or solidarity voices
or any other of Earth’s neural receiving and giving
eco-therapeutic receptors.

So, I remind my daughter
of what the yogi message therapist said,
We only want to touch with kindness,
With our hands
and with our voices,
with our preferably dancing bodies
and our more therapeutically singing mouths
and signing hands
and signaling feet.

Her transport team listens,
laughs,
maybe a touch more relaxed
about possibilities for therapeutic WinWin touching
wounded Win/Lose dis-encultured students
on their often too-neglected journeys
in well-being life-skills
for enhancing healthy wealth resilience.

While us caregiving adults
continue to cooperatively talk without touching
among our comparatively privileged selves.

Doing Church

Church is usually a noun
for a sanctuary becoming place

But, both church and sanctuary
are scripturally more about revolutionary verbs.

Countering capital-consumer culture
Churching
giving and receiving healthy cooperatively-owned sanctuary
are what good news faith communities do
to earn a reputation
for wealth of love,
gratitude for more hope-filled futures
together,
more than autonomously apart.

Synergetically giving and receiving sanctuary
cannot be done with both integrity
and contempt,
And can be optimized with both gratitude for error
and terrifying opportunities
to fast-extend hopeful compassion,
a positive energy democratic crisis
seeking immediate through long-term
WinWin polypathic outcomes.

Recent choices of a good health sanctuary movement
look back to November of 2016 in the U.S.
and to RightWing fear-mongering plutocratic contests
throughout Earth’s non-violent health-sanctuaries,
lower inclusive standards of liberal ultra-violet integrity
to love each Other,
healthy and not so much
just yet.

Health care exercises active compassion
Which could not include
turning a nakedly competing corporate emperor
into the Nakedly Competing International Emperor
presiding over entitled epi-ego-idolatry centers
conservatively loathing liberal sanctuary movements,
villages,
communities,
extended loving families
of nature/spirits.

Compassion for Naked Emperors
and for our own competing anti-sanctuary ways
invites each green therapeutic vocational call
to re-invest
re-imagine
re-hope for gratefully resilient sanctuary becoming
doing what we still can
integrating active resonant economic hope
with therapeutic ecological purpose
meaning
polypathic ethology
sacred secularity
systematic WinWin theology
of liberating
healthy
resilient
integral love churching
growing greener sanctuaries.

My Nurturing Justice Interview

I was interviewing our Food Justice Coordinator
for Edible Landscape Projects
nurturing democratic peaceful outcome
projections
and trend analysis,
none of which would competitively sell papers.

She asked most of my questions.

I responded, as usual with her,
writing my tension-filled
marketable consumer-driven
and therefore possibly publishable
responses.

She replies to my
Why are Edible Landscapes
a nutritional health and justice priority?
With a question
How are youir own health ingested landscapes
a therapeutic priority for you
and your Tribe?

So I write down some notes
about how restoring nutritional justice
deserves more of my personal investment
because healthy grace
and graceful beauty
are,
and have always been,
democratizing cooperative vocations
multi-generations of EarthTribes
have, and still do, give to ourselves
going way back to cave drawings
and rock gardens,
fragrance and sounds of oceans
and sweetgrass meadows,
shrines to everyday sacred healthcare warriors
and peace-makers and singers
and liturgical rain dancers
for cooperative multi-regenerational
thirsty and hungry receivers.

Gifts of perfect nutrition
absorbed through mouths worshiping at sacred tits
but also eyes
and noses
and ears inhaling grace-filled birdsong forests.

I read this back to her
and asked if this fits
with what she intended to say
about family and community priorities
for restoring edible,
and graceful,
landscape projects.

She says Obviously so.
Nutrition is Grace is love,
she reminds us,
but actively so obviously so.
Not just a passive yin potential power!
she yangs,
Love activates a graceful racing horse
toward nutritional nurturing climates
feeding long-term organically full life–

PositivEnergy Democracy
grace racing
pro-active natural/spiritual Love.

We agreed to meet again
for another cooperatively unmarketable interview
away from our competing racetracks–
a garden venue,
or maybe an organic farm,
an outdoor reforesting classroom
nutritionally re-opened for our self-organizing
PositivEnergy Cooperative’s
inside incubating resilience,

Reweaving sacred health
with secular co-invested wealth.

On my way out
I noticed a notice
for cooperative healthcare managers
and owners:

1. Inflicting market competitions
does not grow affective or effective health cooperations.

2. Punishing revenge against lesser creatures
and their faith systems
is not therapeutically healthy
for growing higher democratic creatures.

3. Harvesting and commercializing Saints
does not grow
Future multicultural Raptures.

4. A tolerated WinLose truce
is not proactive WinWin Grace.

5. Red RightWing apartheid
is not Green LeftWing Peace.
