DisConnecting Dogmas

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

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
regenerative Spirit
of inclusive win/win recommunication,
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,
and formative scriptural over-simplifications
and decontextualized
starkly isolated from human experience

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
anthropocentric mission,

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
spiraling regenerative connecting
communicating traditions
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
and TaxCollectors
as Jewish authorities
who wanted to excommunicate EarthCreator’s Messiah
for stepping outside dogmatic institutional lines
of orthodoxy
and institutional
empire investment.

Rather than adapting,
co-acclimating to Jesus’s spiritual experience
of a Creator Abba
of regenerative
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
reconnecting hope with good faith.

What might we learn from this disconnecting
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,
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,

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,

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,
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,
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.
