Religious Ties That Bind

Religion
could be more spiritually grounded
in healthy ecological relationships
were theologians and governors
to remind each multiculturing Other,

This re-connecting work
of religious economic and political enculturation
is less about unchangeable past history of TruthSpace
and more about continuous,
resonantly reculturing
EarthBeauty Time

Less about petrified fear
anger
unhealthy distrusting demonic place
and more about fluid compassion,
safe
timeless double-binds of graced eternity.

Double-binds are sometimes recognized
in moral theology–
damned if you do
and damned if you don’t;

Seldom blessed if you do
and grace if you don’t.

Two negatives equal a positive
but two polarized positives
equal a mess of confusion.

R.D. Laing connected verbal communication
between individual victims
and socially empowered authorities
like parents
and teachers

And perhaps evangelical theologians
demanding we love God
more than Ego,
Yet if we understand Ego
as merely autonomous from God’s omnipotent grace,
then we have not yet
personally enough
accepted God’s love
into our self-made hearts.

Double-binds are double-negatives
as double-binary x’s and y’s,
1’s and 0’s,
binomial prime relationships
like Yang and Yin
and dipolar bonds of appositional association

Co-defining
eco-refining Earth’s regenesis
with fractal DNA and RNA
double-bilateral structures

Like 4-dimensional spacetime
of co-arising
co-acclimating bi/di-polar dynamics
either/or AND both/and
left resonant
with right hemisphere interdependent communication
non-violent,
so, compassionate–

These are not often enough
positively re-ligioned
re-connected
rewoven into the fabric
of double-binding win/win choices,
healthy, mutually trusting, democratic discernment,
nondualistic dialogue
theological and ecological,
psychological and neurological,
organic and democratic,
sexual and sensual,
historic and cultural,
memory and mysterious hope

For dipolar co-gravitating
spiritual death and natural life
ecosystemic experience,
systemic divine climax,
sacred wonder
and secular
spiraling
recycling
regenerating awe

Root
to branch
to flower
to seed
new/old root re-ligioning systems.

I’m Fine

His life felt sick.
Filled with ick

And she was sighing,
inside dying.

Yet, when asked,
her response
entirely unresponsive,
“I’m fine.”
puts her compassionate listener
in a double-bind.

Do I ask her if she is intentionally lying
or irresponsibly
out of her self-isolating mind?

Neither one
feels more kind
and patient,
still, uncommunicating
and yet curious.

Could it be
she is embarrassed
about being merely mortal?

A caregiver
without sufficient tools
or even weapons
to assure EarthTribe’s
resonantly healthy non-confrontations
with degenerative trends
sometimes overwhelming
normal regenerative
narrative twists and bends,

A mother
who must only be
an omnipotent caregiver,
without sustained support
as one of us
co-arising care receivers?

What good is universal health care giving
without reciprocal
compassionate care receiving?

And, how could we,
why would we,
when should all Earth’s caregivers
deny our patriarchal climates
of pathology?

When our allies are sick
and filled with unanticipated ick.

Agreeing to DisAgree

I have noticed
in negative strong
long feeling settings
a willingness
to accept impatience
to reluctantly embrace tolerance
and Agree to DisAgree.

Yet, to equate this conclusion
with cooperatively
and actively Agreeing to Positively Agree
with anticipation
rather than further win/lose anxiety
would be to overvalue tolerance
and to underestimate
differences between systemic logic
and self-deceiving fallacy.

We do not meet
win/win standards of nonviolently held energy,
powers of positive communication praxis,
by Agreeing to DisAgree,
shrugging
and leaving the dialogue
with win or lose, who knows?
back to hopeless stuckness,
but now further entrenched
in frustrating
increasingly impatient,
look some other way
tolerance

Of a society
too dumb to GoldenRule agree
to act as decent as a healthy family,

And too ignorant
to co-invest in present
and future green integrity.

To believe agreeing to disagree
is sufficient for short-term bridges,
let us be forewarned
agreeing to not yet agree
on reassuring regenerative plans
for healthy green democracy,

Is quite far from cooperative value enhancements
of agreeing to co-passionately agree
we are here together
for all EarthTribe’s health and safety

Multiculturally cooperative
eco-political regenerativity,
revolutionary 20/20
democratic positive energy.

Fragrance v Odor

My new forest and park neighbors,
mostly birds
squirrels
and strangely curious
and ravenous rabbits,

Have become accustomed to,
spoiled by,
fragrant green sanctuary
ancient fertile memories.

But, today
our neighborly horse farm
must be cleaning house.
This smells of too rich compost
upstaging even more gracious green.

This downgrade
calls to me
recalling former toxic smells,
fossil fuel exhausting,
were sooo… much more degenerative.

Horsey compost
lies between love’s light life fragrance
and dark skinned death
of odorous Earth.

Yet, comparing distances
between green forest
and horse fragrance
and transported stinky fractures
through sacred climates ecological
resonant and resilient airs
and gusts
and breezes,

Comparative distances
continuously,
yet consecutively, change
what one might argue
is a contrasting wealth of difference,
+1, to -1, with midway
horse-powered zero neutral

Feels more like two-thirds healthy fragrance
and only one third toxic

Feels closer to three-fourths salient
to one-fourth punitive memory
from here
and now perspective,

Feels closer to seven-eighths
to one-eighth formerly deranged
of a revolutionary
resonantly regenerative
fractalling
resiliently redundant
multicultural sensory/spiritual
nurturing
re-communicating natural octave
of Golden Ratio/Rule comparison,

At last
resiliently resonant.

RePurposing Anger

At last,
we are angry with each other
coincidentally,
simultaneously,
which may be a coincidence,
but probably not;

Depending on active faith
in linear cause-effect relationships,
leftbrain dominant yang powers,

And/or
circular dipolar co-arising
co-passioned effective unpolarized relationship,
causes v effects = effective causal recycles
of rightbrain both/and recessive yintegrity.

Now,
at last,
we have set our synergetic communication stage
to test this ancient hypothesis
that two negatives
are equal to a potential positive co-passion,
as polynomials
may equal not not polynomials

Where positive
also equals leftbrain healthy
and rightbrain safe

And negative anger
equals leftbrain liberally
communication healthy
when rightbrain feels conservatively safe,

Despite never considering this internal hypothesis
because of patriarchal
dualistic
win/lose capitalistic faith
in not not equivalent potential
for ego/ecosystemic win/wins

Despite respite death through life
ego/eco-recycles
repurposing timeless eternity
of unity
more flexibly equitable
than uniformity
of leftbrain thoughts
with rightbrain feelings.

In Our Distance Circle

Once upon time’s center
grows two permaculturing farmers,
multicultural mediators
of Earth’s healthy polypathic remainder,

And, surrounding them,
seven elders
and their cheer leading mascot
of disabling foolery

Arriving each spring
in his wheeled chair
to witness
and sometimes loudly prophecy,
to entertain with his win/win intentions,
studying compassionate economics
and empowering politics
and enlightening neurological communion
v dissonance.

These aged and playful snowbirds
form a Wisdom Circle
conjoined by all farmers

Committed to Earth’s health care
in humble Vermont neighborhood places
spaces balancing Green Lives Matter races
into organically interdependent co-investments.

This Circle plans cooperative gardens,
MultiCulturally designing
and redesigning shared outdoor climate spaces
in and on now abandoned places
they purchase together
to divest of Green Commons neglect
and invest in a local cooperatively-held enterprise

With land and water and healthy air-based capital
where patient customers
become curious partners
contributing cash
but also labor,
beauty
and nutritional equity,
gracious investment
and/or benignly viral infestment.

This Green Wisdom Circle
plants fruit and nut trees,
vegetables EarthMothers insist they eat
and would like as much as fruit sweet
if they remain of right/left balancing mind.

They plant hemp,
and make baskets
and yoga mats
during dispersed winters
into the retiring diaspora
season for planning futures
of health restoring EarthJustice.

Circles of weavers
and knitters
turn lambs
into shorn sheep
into yarn
into blankets
socks
sweaters
skullcaps
winter masks
with ear muff handles.

Eventually
this Circle will reincarnate Wisdom
into Fire Circles for compline meditations
and story telling
into Singing Circles
of care medication
for young through old,
for those present living now,
and here dead
and yet to arrive
within all sacred regenerating species,

Egos circling within ecosystems,
interweaving networks
of TruthSeeker Circles
sharing win/win BeautyVisions,

Communion Farming Centers
within nonviolent communication systems
for engaging nutritional health,

Sacred ZeroCore recovery Allies,
not Lone Warriors,
within Earth’s fully present
compassionate
care giving as receiving.

Permaculture Designs

Multicultural Appreciative Design
begins with how we nutritionally feel,
nurtured or afflicted,
resonant and/or dissonant about a few issues,
spiritually healthy
and naturally wealthy,
growing out
into more robust global matters.

Polycultural outcome win/win strategies
follow principles of cooperative economy
and regenerative choice-making
to improve health care giving
and receiving
for each humane resident’s sacred habitat.

ZeroZone is first priority,
and then out to spacetime climate periphery.

Once we notice and plan past
Zone One,
Zone Two,
Zone Three,
and perhaps more,
depending on the scale of our restorative justice
healing ambitions,
we eventually conclude by observing
wind and light/shadow patterns,
climate trends
humid and dry atmospheres,
social good humored cultures
and nationalism’s bad humored
political
blaming and shaming
win/lose capital commodified monoculture.

ZeroZone interviews
ask Who Are You
at your healthiest
most nutritionally communicating
win/win eco-political best,
especially in cooperative relationship
with Zone One,
often defined as those spaces and times visited
and felt revisited
at least once per day
and night.

Zone Two,
less frequently,
maybe once a week.
The grocery store,
farmer’s market,
bank,
cooperative credit union,
compost bin,
edible and aesthetically pleasing boundaries,
inviting barricades
between Zone Two
and

Zone Three,
about once a month,
such as ambiguously friendly neighbors.

Zone Four,
once or twice a year,
maybe tracing tentacles out
to the dentist’s office,
the voting booth,
church,
the state park,
the state capital.

Zone Five,
Climate health
v pathology,
Polycultural wealth
v monoculturing degenerativity,

Each of these layered Zones
extending out from each ZeroZone individual,
couple,
family,
cooperative humane residents,
responsible and responsive green new deal team,
restorative justice residential authorities,
each Black Lives Matter intentional community,
each Green Lives Matter advocacy anthro-pod,
sharing a residential labor of love home,

Surrounds
a ZeroZone cooperative,
each Permaculture Designer
is trained to notice,
interview,
multiculturally mediate
bilaterally resilient left hemisphere
and resonant right hemisphere
nonviolent communication win/win relationships
of deductive thought
and inductive feeling,
breathing in
from Zones One through XY-polynomial layers
while also breathing out ZoneZero
feelings about healthy v pathological,
co-relational,
co-passionate climate dialogue
for win/win discernment
of global integrity’s timeless potential
for democratic health, more–

So, by the indirect way,
pathological outcomes
win/lose left hemisphere dominant either/or thinking,
less.

DNA’s Ecological Confession

I live each breath
each day
each month
each season
each year
each stage of lifespan
each life and death cycle
of passionate memory,
between eternal consciousness
and timeless change.

Breathing in non-zero sum
and exhaling zero-sum
and vice versa spatial Time

Who knows significant differences
in such profound zero balancing,
similarities of emptiness
and fullness,
symmetries,
centers,
sources?

Earth’s ecofeminist life span
and Ego’s left-hemisphere
mutually reflect dynamic changing passions,
timeless theological play,
passion’s eternal re-creative work,
eternal wisdom
as of timeless personal knowledge,
polypaths of correlating wonder
wandering in polyphonic
eternal octaved awe.

I need not become capable
of defining regenerative breath
and spirit of dynamic time
to already be bilateral refiner
of Spirit’s renatured fractal Source.

Thoughtless Thoroughfares

The main currents of thought
are feelings about relationships,
positive
and negative climates,
sometimes obscured
confused
by double-binding negatives
incuriously set aside
as merely bad news
and systemic evils

Like racism
applied to oneself
as victim of prejudice
is not reverse racism,
not multicultural intelligence,
for egos steeped
shaped
secured by StraightWhiteMale
supremely valued labeling,

Like sexism
applied to oneself as victim
is not reverse sexism,
is not vulnerability,
for patriarchally wounded souls,

Like fascism
applied to victimized losers
and lepers
and thugs
is not reverse fascism,
does not further healthy democracy,
for aristocratically wounded kleptocrats.

The main stereotypes of thought
are feelings:
About positive healthy relationship,
wealthy attachments,
compassion
empowering left and enlightening right,
liberal resonance
conserving inclusive resilience;
And about negative lack thereof.

Half Conscious

She was half listening
to a Tibetan male philosopher.

He spoke in timeless wise prose
impressed
by suppressed
Western natural theories of mind.

She heard repressed
Western timely spiritual experiences
of sensual sensory bodies.

He sang lyrically
of cultural vocations
perpetually turned toward enlightenment.

She spoke rationally
of permacultural designs
systemically perpetuating
healthy democratic empowerment.

He thought about natural
multicultural mindfulness
as time’s seamless spatial integrity.

She felt sublime
within polycultural
spiritual embodiment
of Earth’s revolving
co-passionate
nutritional
nurturing synergy.

He was half speaking
to a Western ecofeminist theologian.
