Sustainable Sanctuaries

I’m in the process of joining a Unitarian Universalist Green Sanctuary
communion of All Souls,
in Connecticut.

This is not my first time joining a new intentional good-faith community,
but it is the first time I have signed a Membership Book
of historical,
spiritual,
natural cooperatively intentioned community
which goes back only to 1911.
Some UU sign-up and -in Books
began, and have been more and less healthily sustained,
since the 1600s.

This AllSouls, in New London,
is more of a contemporary Souls membership history story,
mostly of cooperation,
or we could not still exist,
but probably more than sufficient competitions as well.

At least two natural-spiritual multicultural health formation experiences strongly influence how I approach the “Welcome New Member” folder,
placed in my hand by the Membership Committee Chair.

Our seven UU Communion Principles show up inside this folder
on a yellow-green sheet,
mapping a two-pillared alpha through omega arch;
a health construction bridge
between All Souls past and present;
Not a sectarian wall of dogmatic who is and was enlightened
and who is and was yet to be effectively reborn.

My Taoist Yang/Yin bilateral philosophy
intersects with training/experience with Permaculture Design
of natural exteriors
and spiritual interior subclimate development
for therapeutic and regenerative
Zero ZenZone polycultural health robust reformation.

This nature-spirit pancultural view
of Earth and Her/His non-sectarian communal parts
influences how I read through these transubstantiating communal Principles.

The first and last, the alphaYang/omegaYin, two pillars
speak to what Taoist Permaculture Design has ego/eco-systemically unveiled
inside me,
then outside me:

The inherent nutritional worthiness
and natural/spiritual co-arising dignity
of every person,
living with and for cooperatively owned and self-managing plants,
on organic planet Earth
Respect interdependent webs of nutrition, nurturing
subsystems of all changing climates
of which each ego-system, inside
and each eco-system, outside
is a secular/sacred pan-sectarian
networking
holonic
communal
communitarian sanctuary
preferably bilaterally, even multilaterally, non-violent
speaking and listening,
noticing and caring,
not neglecting and abusing,
polypathic co-relational
co-passioning part.

In the epicenter of the remaining five over-arching Principles
about our shared health-seasoned journey
into how we agree to cooperatively grow
as one organic communal to-gathered sanctuary,
The 4-Season Dimension speaks out, holds tightly, for

Freedom, because cooperatively paid forward and backward through multigenerations,
economically
and politically
and psychologically
and ecologically redeeming health
wealth
virtuous cooperative circles
norms, etc
through co-responsible cooperative research
for healthy yang truth
meeting, and never excluding,
wealthy yinternal nutritionally effluent meaning,
robustly transformative,
resiliently co-relational,
resonantly compassioning.

The Second Principle
births spring thaws of EarthJustice,
nutritional equity,
compassionate sanctuaried integrity
in humane/divine
natural/spiritual co-arising newborn, reborn relations
sprouting summer’s fully maturing compassions.

The Third sun-drenched Principle
celebrates transparently enlightening acceptance
and vulnerably naked encouragement
to naturally/spiritually
outside/inside mature,
climax polycultural outcomes,
polyphonic inside singing outside dance,
polypathic spatial Here breathed yangly in
as temporal Now exhaled affluently yin out
in…

Preparing for our future Fifth Principle:
Bicameral harvesting right and left
of conscientious democratic mutually past/future trusting seeds
winnowed
and carefully treasured
in active hope
for yet another season
of EarthSanctuary renewal.

And then, holistically systemic Yin
as the last Sixth Principle
winterish say:
Prophesying Advent of global non-violent communion
over-arching FourSeason PermaCultural Goals
of healthy EarthGreen Sanctuary, warming spring of
peace-drenched communication,
radically lavish inside liberty of universal love,
celebrating unitarian EarthJustice restored
with
and by
and for
and of all cooperatively-owned
interdependent webs
networks
bridges
gardens
holistic organic farms,
sanctuaries producing and consuming and reproducing
WinWin polypathic Souls
of which each healthy ego
is an essential
nutritional
nurtured/natured
whole yin/yang speaking
singing
dancing
graceful EarthJustice
GreenSanctuary part.

It’s a lot to take in
before moving on to the GoldenRule Cooperative Stewardship sheet,
all about therapeutically treating
and sustaining
robustly resilient
resonant
root systems.

Engaging the Family Laundry

Perhaps infertile
incomplete
unwashed memories
of elder v younger,
Goliath v David,
crusades v communion
critical, yet part of chronic, events
speak extended family disengagement truth
to powerful dirty laundry engagement failures.

That disclaimer said,
I have two incomplete conversations
in mind and heart
and what I hope I will eventually learn
from mistakes in anemic compassion
too thin for nobler listening opportunities.

When I was sixteen,
I courageously confronted my dad
about his white supremacist beliefs,
which would not endorse slavery
but were oppressively too comfortable
with White nationalism
and patriarchal white-washed privileged capitalism
Win/Lose meritocracy theology,
teleology,
evolutionary ethology,

God’s chosen evidence of Black and Brown unfortunate
lack of pure enough LeftBrain intelligence
to successfully care for their own intellectual
and physical
property/properties God given
but in a more niggardly way.

After all, if they were as full of divine grace as we are
then they never would have become forced migrant fieldhands
and robotic domestic servants
before we had robotic domestic servants,
properly satisfied with a basic shack,
self-grown food,
cotton-picking and sugar-caning uniforms,

Rented and unrented servants capable of learning
yet not relentlessly driven by passion
for deeper democratic health interdependent webs of life
empowered each day by dense political understanding,
robust economic awareness of who has power to sell
and who has insufficient power to redeem
what could never be naturally-spiritually commodified
without severely wounded ego-disintegrity,
social madness,
political fury.

When I asked my dad,
Why are you so sure people of color,
especially women,
are so intellectually and emotionally and and mentally inferior to you,
the WhiteMan
living in an all white rural community
and all white nationalist church
fully invested in a white
plutocratic
military-industriously colonizing
authoritarian mess?
And an all white school system
and all white county government
all your life?

He could not point to any experience
of his own white superiority
But he could pull out a Reader’s Digest article
regarding research on standardized LeftBrain tests
with unstated lexicon
and linguistic norms
of dialectally empowered WhiteEnglish DominantSpeak.

My WiseElder dad told me to read it
and get back to his more seniority self
if I had any further naive questions.

That was the end of that conversation.
Question asked
and self-declared orthodox textual reference answered.

A year ago
I asked my White nationalist evangelical older brother
if he would vote for D Trumpian again,
and, if so, why?
Given his Christian God of love
and his GoodNews evangelistic vocation
to bring universal peace
and uniting divine justice to all people
everywhere,
now and in rapturous kingdom at near ill-defined hand
of future Heaven
for all eternity,
red and yellow,
black and white,
they are precious
in His sight.

My brother responded,
While troubled by Trumpian narcissism,
and maybe over-wrought cynicism,
Trump’s anti-immigrant
anti-Islam sectarianism
are a good faith fit
for God scripturally written to be pissed off
about pagan idolatrous hedonists
and uppity women
and lying stealing greedy children
and people too stupid to get it
that God has been strategically designed
in a RightWing dominant WhiteMan’s ancient
fascist
apartheid image
of spiritualized
denatured seclusion.

Well, OK,
he explicitly said just the first part,
about keeping out the threatening anti-Christian,
pro-liberal ecofeminist choice,
anti-family values foreigners,
All for building an impermeable moat
around a White privileged patriarchal “Christian” nation
on an awesome well-lit hill,
originally intended to be democratically enfranchised
only for White male property-owners,
possibly including Black and Native American slave property,

But only White property-owners have historically correct autonomous rights
to carry automatic military rifles
and drive gas and oil-hog Hummers to an all-White church
in substantially Black and Brown Flint, Michigan.

When I asked him why keeping Muslims,
and perhaps other Black
and suspiciously Spanish-speaking Brown people out,
was more important to his Christian beliefs
than keeping democratic family health care in
and USA climate therapeutic care
at the top of our global investment budget,
even higher than our ballistic automated threat budget
designed to blow up people
and plants
and planet,
He said he had no interest in that conversation.

The only important conversation for us,
from his fundamental dogma-centered power position,
was how much of the King James Holy Bible
I have properly memorized and adopted,
not adapted,
and invited into my personal everyday relationship with Jesus.

The political Jesus,
unmarried Messiah
and Teacher of following GoodNews Truth
into universal interdependent compassion,
most accessible to a child, wounded and poor in spirit,
when Win/Win Truth invites GoldenRule conflict
between elders and siblings
about signs of extended family integrity
and wonders of divinely humane non-walled communion,
non-apartheid community,
non-violent communication…

Again, I digress
from explicit historical conversations
about experiential evidence for White nationalist privilege
on into internal implications for WinWin empowering communion
where I can sometimes Left with Right childlike balance,
still finding and grasping onto
universally inviting unitarian
co-operative laundry cleaning compassion.

What Health-Searching Voters Want

Financial supporters,
including tax payers,
prefer to invest most in thriving healthy results,
mental,
physical,
spiritual,
natural,

Health interdependent
and wealth autonomously held,

Responsive
and yet rationally authoritative,

Personally felt
and yet publicly well researched,

Spiritually passionate
and yet naturally logical,

RightBrain spontaneous
and yet LeftBrain properly processed,

Orthodox familiar family
and yet undomesticated wildly green-red re-constitutive
transubstantiating
creolizing
blending healthier multicultural
Ego-loving
and yet deep eco-learning

Our ZeroZone Health-Target Population,
includes those chronically experiencing pathological climate outcomes
mental,
physical,
spiritual,
natural disabilities
disassociations internally interdependent
and yet externally Left-autonomous

Either/Or egos with Both/And ecohabitat health hopes
Naturally organic
and yet spiritually inorganic

Responsive weather-whisperers
and yet responsible
well-researched climate forecasters,

Spontaneously compassionate
and yet cooperatively reasoned,

Ecstatic
and yet slow-growing mutual enchantment,

Family familiar experience
and yet humanely committed to global democratic energy
co-investment,

Loving ultra-violet integrity
and yet deep learned red-heart synergetic,

Ego strength
and yet EcoTherapeutic fluent flow,

GreenEmbodied resiliently articulating logos
and yet long resonant RedHearted mythos.

When logos/mythos host a green/red stakeholder’s meeting,
we invite today’s ZeroZone chronically hurting
secular/sacred wounded
disabled
pathologized victims,
criminals,
terminally silenced by chronic non-elite Left-Right disassociative
disabilities
to gather around WiseElder outdoor/inside fire-circles

To pass the pipe of logos responsibilities
and baton of mythic authority to speak
about passion for healthier climates
inside and outside,

Ego and eco
therapeutic restoring re-foresting schools,
towns,
nations,
continents,
Earth.

Listen
to what we most love to say
sing
dance
And what They,
perhaps unlike ourselves today,
do not say
cannot yet sing
would perhaps never choose to associatively dance
even if their cooperative legs
were still both logically responsive
and responsibly authoritative,
kneeling to show secular with sacred respect
for our patriotic-matriotic Earth,
shared green with red home
East with West,
South with North.

Only include all four-season reasoning Allies
in our FirstNative Tier UltraViolet Zone,
inviting all ZeroTarget unbalanced
wounded
disassociated eco-voices
as our first chronic gathering
to unanimously vote for better outside healthy choices
cooperatively owning inside wealth reform
for improving healthier lives,
housing,
gardens and farms,
energy and transportation,
communication and
cooperative ownership land
synergetic management
for All

Especially those most currently wounded
among our Zero Target
integral
ego-eco GoldenRule
inhabitants
and yet co-habitating voters,
investors in wealth of healthy
green liberating climates
with red conserving cooperative
DNA-design and ecological
theological co-management.

Love’s Great Sanctuaries

Those who win the day
are those who choose love
instead of hate.
Rev. Dr. William Barber

Those who exclude victim inclusion
disrupt everyday sanctuary
for addicted bully perpetrators,
not unlike ourselves.

Those who dream sanctuary all FullMoon night
are those who choose uniting integrity
instead of egocentric universal mendacity.

Those who win each Mr. and Ms. Christ day
are those who choose to believe
Christ was Jesus extended family name
instead of Hate,
evangelically disabling anthro-centrism,
fundamentalistic disassociating from messianic eco-restorations.

The magic of loving messiahs,
like the enchantment of Christmas,
is deeper LeftBrain learned and taught
as more about being fully present to healthy eco-wealth
To be less about becoming egocentrically full
of sufficient political presents for All.

Those who restore everyday magic
are those who choose MotherEarth Love
instead of negative ultra-violent patriarchal Hate
punishing sins and crimes
vengeance offensives against revenge
for sins against MotherEarth’s
health of Ms. ChristSoul–

Ecopolitically housed through history’s sanctuary cathedrals
cooperatively co-governed celebrations
for multicultural green reforesting projects
purposes
plans
procedures
policies
polypathic protests.

Deep learning sanctuaries
are ecologically therapeutic environments
are ecopolitically resilient regenerations
are GreenChrist Mentors
are EcoTherapeutic Bodhisattva Advocates.

Those who win each enchanting everyday
by choosing co-redemptive Love
over demi-urgent fundamental Hate
against healthy
multicultural
EarthSanctuary.

ReFreshing Contract Transparency

Public, or even familial, contracts
with predative purposes and rights given and received
move toward more transparency

So local folks
can better monitor
what’s extracted from our communities
against what’s coming back in
by way of re-investment
in future healthy regenerations
of active hope
and faith
and secular/sacred love.

Imagine what might happen
if contract transparency
were applied to proposed changes
in extractive federal tax and spend policies.

We might more clearly notice,
In unfair exchange for cooperatively sharing
an additional One Trillion Dollars in new debt
this year alone
We are opaquely adding
to our degenerative
and destabilizing growing gap
between the 99
and the Great One ecopolitical SuperElite,
disproportionately irresponsible,
yet unwisely authoritative,
for debt repayment schedules
to be aborted by yet unborn oppressed children

Further deficit destabilizing universal affordable healthcare
for all future organic EarthTribes
of all economic and political nations and natures,
all continents and ecofeminist Spirits,
all oceans and all enculturing Muses,

And for such a risky short-term climate-pathology investment,
we are invited to re-invest
about the same amount of cash and resentment
and competing pathologies
and punishing BusinessAsUsual naturally competitive
worthless equity
If we are among the 99,
and somewhat more generous short-term healthcare returns
for the SuperElite Great BusinessOnes
willing to divest away from health
for their own great-great-grandchildren,
should any of them survive
climates of rapidly expanding unwealthy pathology.

Economists
HealthCare students and teachers,
patients and nurses, and sometimes even holistic doctors,
Psychologists
Sociologists
NonPartisan Political Theorists
Ecologists
System Resilience students and teachers,
patients and resisting impatients and therapists,
Game Theorists,
Information/DisInformation TransparentCommunication Systems Analysts
will all consensually
synergetically
multiculturally
integratively
speak WinWin Nature/Spirit Truth
to overly competitive LoseNature/LoseSpirit Violence
of opaque contracts against healthy democratic Constitutions
and constituents thereof

Ecological family economists
observe
long-term deficit unhealth/unwealth spending increases
grow bipolar divides
between the GreatOnes
and the 99s,
divesting of WinWin good nature
and transparent spirited resistance

To opaque health/wealth extractions
while yet cooperatively receiving
unhealthy divestments outgoing
from local cooperative health/wealth communities
for dismantling unwealthy violence
and self-marketing federal partisan pirate privileges
against each healthy-wealth cooperative Other

UnHealth-UnWealth divestments
together
A trail of tears
toward LoseLose monocultural toxic dumps
desocializing
disempowering
anti-resilient
counter-green revolutionary
chronic stress
sleep and nurture deficits
terrifying interior/exterior climate pathology
further fueling disagreeing degenerative survival hoarding strategies,
while forests burn
and hurricane season builds
opaquely ominous…

Rather than transparent
liberally loved PositivEnergy Democracy
and regenerative WinHealth-WinWealth resilience.

This absence of liberating healthy freedoms
and conservative re-investment
in and with and for nature/spirit bipartisan wealthy behavior
reminds me
of the 1980’s
NotSoHidden Contract Against America’s
GoldenRule Health/Wealth Standards
for PositivEnergy Constitutional Law
and Nature/Spirit restoratively re-invested Order.

Great White Father

About those anti-BadNewsMedia rallies
while our SouthWest is burning
and while our SouthEast is flooding
and wet windstorm conflagrating,
feeling the flamed-up wrath
of an angry EarthGoddess,

Why do you plant and nurture hate
and anger
against potential WinWin integral communicators?

Did it not once occur to you
to wonder why you chose to be elected
in this climate precarious time?

Why are you like BadNews zealously mendacious Saul
when we so obviously need a more integrated St. Paul?
Filled and overflowing with healthy integrity,
Holy Matriarchal Spirit-Nature.

Your mockery
and tongue-lashing
and transparent ego-promotion
will not help one child
recall what a great job you did
while made in U.S. of A. family homes
and forests are burning
longer and stronger
every devolutionary decade.

Your egotism
and anthropocentrism
further inflame climate disasters
and absence of accessible health care,
cooperatively given as received,
and healthy wealth of economic and politically reasonable reassurance
that, together,
as a healthy bicameral democracy,
we can rebuild this co-dominating
co-operative constitutional
integrity we so redemptively WinWin need

We need to gather to heal Earth’s climates,
not to destroy them
with bad attitude and vilifying pathologies
rather than gratitude and health-wealth celebrations
to restore justice and invite cooperatively owned peace
into ego/eco-centered green health hearts
and wealth societies
reforesting our WinLose deserts,

Revolve
resolve our storming desserts
for past hubris
of Great White Fathers
demanding missionary colonization
inflaming idolatrous hate
rather than inviting
our seas to still
our surviving trees to witness our worship.

One difference between you
and Barack Hussein
I notice you never mention:

You look at historical outcomes
for nature/spirit WinWin Native Americans
and gleefully declare
“They lost!”
Barack recalls those same disempowering outcomes
and sadly, yet more patriotically, notes
“We all lost.”

I wonder if the burning homes
and trees
can hear that terrifying empathic difference
for future integrity
of a mental and physical
mind and body
spiritual and natural healthy democracy.
