Cantos of Communion

All relationships
steadfast monotheistic
become stagnant hate

And change becomes
rightly and left weighed
swayed animation
accelerated
and delayed
panentheistic.

Yet we are not entirely changed
from our first health wealthy estate,
transubstantiating positive
by our changed circumference
our becoming does dilate
and integrate,
regenerate

And, returning to our selves
at co-related length
and width
and depth again
each day through night

Do awake
to working play
our cooperative perfection
as if by compassion’s fate

Inward,
outward
undulate.

Note: Inspired by, and respoken with gratitude becoming, Spenser’s “Cantos of Mutabilitie”

Left Getting Right Off

“The left hemisphere’s assault on our embodied nature
is not just an assault on OUR bodies,
but on the embodied nature of the
[sacred EarthMother]
world around us.”
Iain McGilchrist, The Master and his Emissary, p. 440

The WhiteMale monotheistic privileged hemisphere’s attack
on regenerative co-passion
was already our unwell

by time’s orgasmic peak ReGeneration.

With rising eroticism,

and out potential
peak transubstantiated co-passion

Not so much reciting LeftBrain dogma
and re-opening more sensual
sacred holonic,
panentheistic
holy worship

By contrast with monotheism
equating homophobic White AnthroGod
with conserving ZeroSum competitive justice
against Both/And co-operative panentheists

Western white homophobic monotheists
decline their own panentheistic ecofeminist spirituality

White patriarchal capitalism
withering emasculated away
with advancing global
panentheistic sacred synergy,
enthymematic secular awareness
inflaming climate anxiety
is neither healthy
nor safe
nor wealthy
nor compassionate
nor 1/0 sexy.

On Religious Integrity

Let us begin
by explicitly undressing
what may have been
implicitly held
multicultural feelings:

  1. For the overwhelming masses
    of teeming and scheming
    healthy human adults,
    and especially adolescents,
    peak sexual experiences
    are also our peak
    lifetime
    spiritual experiences
    of compassion
    co-passion
    shared orgasmic passion.
  2. Our elder right hemispheres do not,
    because they cannot,
    distinguish between spiritual
    and mental
    health,
    brain
    and body wealth.

With these two declared assumptions,
please join in revisiting
public sector sensitive issues
about constitutionally protected
religious freedom
in the USA,
and probably in other
monotheistic
left hemisphere dominant
cultures,
making privileged spaces
for straight
male sensory places.

Religious expression
is rooted
in spiritual/mental
healthy felt connected
safe experience
of win/win nonviolent communication,
compassionate communion
sacred memories.

Family businesses
and corporate executive boards
and healthcare professionals
are constitutionally allowed
to make choices
inconsistent with our own
interdependent spiritual/mental peak
win/win
panentheistic organic experience

But, such a profound lack of integrity
does not help us develop
a more universally democratic
and multicultural frame
of spiritual/mental health care,
well-being
prosperity
resonance
resilience.

Whether nonviolence practitioners
can be constitutionally obligated
to pay war and military,
violence and win/lose aggression,
consumptive capitalist exploitation,
and weapons development and production
taxes
and yet retain meaningful constitutional protection
for spiritual freedom of co-passionate conscience
becomes left brain cognitively complex,
if not downright chaotic.

Whether faith-based communities
can continue to be tax-exempt
feels as clear as democratic
multiculturally celebrated
separation of nonviolent religious expression
and nation-state defensive affiliation

Why a minute of silent
compassion-focused spiritual/mental experience
feels both constitutionally appropriate
and healthy democracy useful
for opening self/other governance meetings,
team huddles,
graduations and commencements
from and into great
and even smaller public transitional events,
bolstering spiritual/mental health resilience
of shared trust consciousness.

Whether inclusive multicultural
non-supremacist religious symbols,
such as a PeaceDove,
a Chalice of communal hope,
a messianic Manger scene,
and a Menorah,
can be installed in public spaces
to evoke spiritual/mental health experiences
and not toxic memories
of homophobic,
racist,
sexist victimization,
trauma,
and chronic stress experiences,
may depend on how inclusive
and compassionate
our own childhood
and adolescent
peak social health experiences
were celebrated,
revered,
honored,
appreciated.

Whether spiritual/mental health education systems
can effectively exclude
non-supremacist expressions
of positive faith
in peak sensory experiences
in the classroom
may depend on whether we believe
a healthy democracy
is rooted in trust
or in capitalism’s competitive
mutual mistrust.

Whether faith-based non-profits
can apply on equal egalitarian footing
with secular corporate privileged organizations
for compassion regenerating
governing grants
to increase spiritual/mental health experiences,
may depend on whether we are remembering
good faith peak experiences
or bad faith competitive
fear of losing out
bullying experiences.

Whether healthy win/win
faith-based communities
and individuals can,
and even must,
advocate for public policies,
including integral health care,
that are consistent with their membership’s
most personal spiritual/mental health experience,
or not so much

These issues
and peak spiritual experience concerns
about loss of healthy wealth
also pertain to freedom
of nonviolent communication speech.

Compassionate communication,
win/win freedom
of resonant
primal inter-relationship,
is the fundamental healthy democracy
trust experience
on which all other integral rights
to spiritual/mental health
are rooted,
wombed,
incubated,
rewoven,
morphed,
regenerated.

On the other hand,
if we begin with different,
more dualistic
and monotheistic assumptions
about this relationship between synergetic religious
and peak spiritual/mental experience
of everyday sacred connection,
then our constitutional conclusions
may vehemently
and irreconcilably
and dogmatically
differ.

Feeling Anxious

When I feel anxious,
threatened,
endangered by mortal loss
of an immortality
never organically promised
for perpetual pleasures of compassion,

When I feel anxious
aging toward permanent disability
before my Wise Elder fruition
returns to brain fog
from which I came
in embryonic form
and flow
and function,

When I feel anxious
about unmerited,
or,
even worse,
merited infamy
as my destiny
rather than fame
fortune
flowering time,
what do I need?
want?
crave for pleasure
purpose
practice
praxis
just protocol
performance
peace persistence
proper procedures,
and, perhaps,
sacred organic meaning?

When I feel anxious
do I need
deep verbal and non-verbal connections
to those who share a home
with still embodied me?

Do I want reconnections
with healthy neighbors
co-cultivating an intentional
conscious
aware
woke
win/win curiously active
healthy and safe
green eco-political community?
resiliently resonant communion?
co-passionate communication network?

Does my own internal RightHemisphere
need healthy and safe communion
while my own activist LeftHemisphere
wants to restore justice
through nonviolent communication
between multiculturally informed,
prescient win/win community mediators?

Do I seek fellow hearty
and healthy Me/We sighted
and cited
home-sited organizers?
committed, yet playful, musicians,
political poets,
cooperative co-investors
in healthy democracy
resilient
resonant
buoyant EarthTribe advocates
combining party lines
for win/win strategic thrival

When I feel anxious
do I also need
to solitary write
or sing and dance,
or hum
quietly alone
with no witness
but my own?

When feeling anxious
slowly turns
to considering curious anticipation
beyond dark dread,
must I always remain quite so shy?
about intimacy,
hesitant to publish internal dialogue
free of censoring
potentially consensual fear
about patriarchal capitalist
investments in LeftHemisphere
white privileged
straight male dominance
as the healthy-safe opposite
of conspiracy theories
and transcendently divine
dogmas justifying inhumane
punishments.

When I feel free
to anticipate
our safe and healthy
EarthTribe future,
do I seek
Polycultural Cooperative Investments?
formed by Elder Indigenous Mind,
panentheistically sacred memory
co-empathically robust
health speaking
nonverbally felt
deeply resilient
nutritious
deep nurturing
positive socio-psychological
eco-political
multiculturing wealth.

Hedonistic Hate

When we compare the numbers
and percentages of innocent,
trusting lives lost
in significant part because of Christian
militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic judging fundamentalism,
punishing Afghanistan
and other Islamic cultures
over the past four or five decades,

To the number
and percentage of innocent
economically and politically trusting lives
lost in significant part
because of Moslem militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic vengeful fundamentalism,
punishing the U.S.
and other NorthWestern Christian cultures

The outsized scale of human
and environmental casualties
in Afghanistan
does not redeem Bin Laden’s terrifying success
on 9/11.

But, this difference in chronic ballistic stress
does suggest why
a well-capitalized terrorist
was able to garner so much economic
and political support
from those already too familiar
with sudden
tragic
violent losses of family
and friends
on 9/11.

This is not to say U.S victims
and non-victims (should there be any)
asked for vengeful death
nor deserved such tragic
excruciating loss,

But
these same losses
may remind us
we, as a democratically healthy
responsible wealthy nation,
a polycultural society,
could have listened with more extensive
bilaterally compassionate ears
and mass mediated eyes,
to the rapacious horror,
loss,
trauma,
fear,
anger,
hate,
chronic anxiety,
post- and pre-traumatic stress disorder

Perpetuated by militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic
dogmatic
RightWing
LeftBrain dominant privilege
elitism
supremacy
autistic autocracy
greedy kleptocracy
dissociative denialism

Doubt in cooperative polycultural powers
of global compassion
love
active and provoking hope,
healthy trust in win/win resolutions.

SeedBearer Psalm

Holy EarthSpirit
is our seed bearer.

Our blue celestial universe
could lack nothing

In meadows of green sweetgrass
She enlightens repose.

Into living waters of recomposure
She bears then leads us;
There S/He revives Earth’s co-passioned soul.

She guides me
by polypaths of virtue
not forsaking Her sense-rooted story.

Though we pass through this gloom
doom river valley,
I fear no mountainous trauma;
Within me
your rooted integrity
and your well-seeded womb are here,
to hearten and enlighten us.

You prepare a wealth gardened table
between us
under the eyes of my predative
and hoarding enemies;

You anoint our capital driven values
with multicultural oil,
my catholic creolizing communion cup
brims cooperatively over.

Ah, how interfaith enlightenment
and empowerment pursue us,
every day and night of Earth’s living systems;

My home,
the recreation of ecowomanist
re-imaged Yahweh,

As long as Earth empowerment
revolves around Sun’s well-seeded Womb.

DisConnecting Dogmas

Our humane-empowering species,
steeped in regenetic history
of human nature connecting
disconnecting
reconnecting
preconnecting,

Has an unfortunate tendency,
especially in Abrahamic historical traditions,
to imagine that our own religious tradition
is not only free of historical-cultural adaptation
but also the one supremely right-wing Way
orthodox Truth
healthy Life.

And, further, guilty of inhumane hubris,
of condemning those outside our dogmatic Fold,
our LeftBrain dominant individualistic EgoFrame,
to lack of redemptive grace,
to after-life Hell,
to lack of true communion
within today’s Earth
holonic
regenerative Spirit
of inclusive win/win recommunication,
empowerment
and enlightenment,
sacred awe
and secular wonder.

Due to this patriarchally influenced
left-brain privileged assumption,
HumanNature lives disconnected
in a win/lose racing economy,
determined by our orthodox religious
and other monoculturally privileged associations
and dues,
catechisms
and formative scriptural over-simplifications
and decontextualized
unhistoricized
dis-enculted
starkly isolated from human experience
studies,

When the practices
and beliefs
of those raised inside the Fold
become obviously heterodox,
our too often StraightWhiteMale authority voices
move toward excommunication,
shunning future cooperative
mutually creolizing empowerment,
remaining true-blue
dogmatically zealous
about our hidden
left-brain dominant
Earth-colonizing
anthropocentric mission,
messianism,
millennialism

And this left-brain overpowered indulgence
has repeated this disconnection,
this unredemptive severance,
this patriarchal apartheid preference
since prehistoric nature/spirit indigenous tribes,
long before Abrahamic written stories of Judaism,
Christian redevelopment,
and Islamic reform came into Earth’s empowering
and enlightening
constantly changing
evolving
revolving
spiraling regenerative connecting
communing
communicating traditions
nutritions
communions shared by all God’s living creatures.

One way of reading the economic
and political turns in the Gospels
is to see the story
of Pharisees
Saducees
and TaxCollectors
as Jewish authorities
who wanted to excommunicate EarthCreator’s Messiah
for stepping outside dogmatic institutional lines
of orthodoxy
and institutional
corporate
empire investment.

Rather than adapting,
co-acclimating to Jesus’s spiritual experience
of a Creator Abba
of regenerative
nurturing
co-passionate Love,
These WealthyElite saw their own unchanging Torah,
established commandments
educational and administrative regulations
dogmatic structures
and long histories of authoritative rabbinical interpretations
of Jewish Law,
as a final
closed religious system,
too privileged,
too Chosen,
supremely endowed with Yahweh’s divine teachings,
to be inconveniently challenged
by anyone with a deviant spiritual experience.

Academic awareness of positive integral deviance
is a modern empowering
enlightening
reconnecting hope with good faith.

What might we learn from this disconnecting
dogmatic
dark side of our GoodNews epistles?

Perhaps less arrogant
and internally preoccupied authorities
might appreciate our more multiculturally healthy milieu
within which all historically developed traditions,
cultures,
religions
have emerged
to describe connection integrity
and proscribe disconnection chaos.

Perhaps our positive deviant minds
and hearts
and spirits
and souls could be encouraged
to find a better religious tradition fit
to become more integrally accepted
and interdependently valued
as s/he/they continue their spiritual/natural journeys
into empowering multiculturally synergetic Truths
enlightening Ways
compassionate Lives,

Rather than the current hubris
of excommunicating
from the one and only True sacred Fold
in divine flowing rivers
of polyculturally communing
sacred EarthTime,

Revolving
evolving
spiraling regenerative climate and culture Changes,
positive diversity,
healthy empowering Missions
for enlightening wealthy spirit/nature vocations,

Reconnecting where each individual
has been,
accepted as now experienced,
and pointed in a new community support direction
toward that good faith
we hope to multiculturally become,
tomorrow’s peaceful practitioners
restoring Justice For All,
with no one left outside Earth’s
empowering local
enlightening global

Poetic License to Kill, or Heal, or Both

I recently read a politically incorrect prolific poet,
or so I thought at the time,
or more felt than thought,
more truthfully,
integrally,

Who said, If poetry is politically correct,
it cannot be poetry.

So, if he is politically correct
in this statement,
is he thereby also not a poet in good standing?

An enigma to which I respond,
If so, then politically incorrect messages
also cannot be poetic,
but tragically disempowering.

Meaning that poetry has power
to change how we feel,
and sometimes listen
and sometimes speak about our relationships.

What are political relationships
if not correctly co-empowering
and incorrectly fragmenting
and disempowering–
without healthy reason
and without wealthy rhyme.

But, now I see this poet’s concern more intentionally.
If a poet’s intent is merely political correctness,
orthodox dogma of some monoculturally dangerous variety,
with no faithful participation
in change,
in our ongoing collective integrity,
potentiating,
developing,
shifting
co-relational organic powers for healthy communicating minds
still hoping to feed and feel healthy bodies,
then wealthy empowerment
becoming metaphorically richer
on Earth’s universal meaning together,
not accessible by apartheid and absolute supremacy,
with synergetic beauty
become mere utilitarian truth,
LeftBrain propaganda
politically severed,
and thereby RightBrain incorrect.

WinWin bicameral therapeutic intent
is politically correct,
empowering,
as seen in narratives of healing
and epic poetry
of time’s co-relational passage
musing into Paradise/Hell
nutritionally/toxically becoming

Where time
celebrates/ignores rhyme
and natural seasons
speak with/without spiritual co-relational reasons.
