Muse of Integrity

HeartChoice,
the Why
of my prayers,
invocations,
anxieties,
deep learning anticipations

Music of Integrity
throughout compassion’s timeless
walking wounded prayers

Felt inside Win/Lose violent history
of uncivil suffering
mystery
of Either/Or non lullaby

Discord rooted and stuck
in fundamental lack of soul
for multicultural flowing courage
swelling BothNature/AndSpirited lungs
and throats
and tongues
and bicameral hearts
and bilateral hands
discovering capital heads
in copassionately curious root
HeartChoice
compelling well-sung

HeadVoice,
the What of my prayers,
invoking lyrics

Win/Win bicameral health/
wealth of vocal ecopolitical analysis
advocating Golden Ruled individuals

Witnessing trauma’s global light
shedding shadows
whispering ecotherapeutic local power,

Enlightened mystic minds
within empowered bodies,

Balancing egos
within harmonic neuro-ecosystems
spiraling binomial
double binary dynamics
healthing HeadVoice
co-invested wealthing

HandReJoice,
the How of my active prayer
as dancing DNA regenerations
choreographing bilateralized experience
that social-psycho consciousness
is not first a matter of unsung healthy faith
but of primordially felt resonant wealth experience,
through co-empathic copassionate music practice

Singing staffed ribbons
inscribing vibrato octaves sung
well-rung resonance
both multicultural
and nonviolent,

Both nutritional
and win/win cooperative communal
ego/eco-therapeutic corollary chorus
resounds

Searching out resilient myths
of beauty’s truthful history,
thought as felt
co-empathic mystery

Unfolding Head
and Hand
and Heart

TriPolar bilateral communication
of vastly deep healthy wealth
long-term resilience
speaking up for WholeEarth Open
Radiant FullSpectral Light
and SoundPower Systems

For achieving the How
of our cooperative
co-invested operas
and spoken word projects,

Beauty prayers
hummed in mythical well-being
vibrating therapeutically together

Growing less isolation nightmares
and “Fix Apartheid SundaySin For Us”
empty prayers
invoking militarized self-righteousness
and other dystopian
Straight White privileged
AnthroSupremacist
LeftBrain Dominant
universal nation
patristic capital invocations
advocating
Either EgoWins/Or Eco-Loses

ZeroSum
Closed NeuroSystemic

Cognitive/Affective dissonance
socio-psychological trauma
chronically stressed
disintegrative miseducating losses
outweighing cisintegral muses

muse dynamic systems

Avoiding unhealthy prayers
for unwealthy

Pandemonic Hope

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining”

I remember someone recently resaying
what has long lain unsaid
inside my paradoxical head,

When asked if I believe in God,
I don’t know what to say.

I might not believe in your God,
at least on my worst
pain-darkened day.

And,
I seem to believe in my own
only in those rare rain-free moments
healthy ego- and eco-gratifying

When I am having a climax heart
and head
song
and dance remembering
re-ligioning
reconnecting EarthMoment

Shared with at least one Other,
perhaps for our first through last time
in this
our day of sacred synergy

Sustaining
surrounding
celebrating a yellow morning
mellow sunrise
promising this wealthy day
without soggy rain

As we prepare to health harvest
warmly fragrant sun-dried hay
I quietly say

So, there is a God,
after all.

“And I believe in love
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God
even when he is silent.”

These two additional beliefs
feel like one Relief Belief
to my bicameral head choice
and heart voice.

For it has often been said
and felt
that God is love

Especially when
Matriotic HolySpirit of Love
doesn’t act like a Patriarchal Fool

And, by that,
I reference my own sociopathology
of privileged entitlement
monoculturally over-invested
in capitalist Straight
White
Earth Predations
Colonizations
Extractions
Rapaciousness

But,
my most courageous inscriptions
of whispering hope
often not felt enough
sacredly chosen silence
in spaces between
my LeftBrain dominant
distracting notes

Where my own AnthroSupremacism
falls vibrantly listening
to responsively hear
Elder MotherTrees
sigh
and breeze

Silently praying
for strong rooted
cooperative integrity

Within this organic Green Communion
forest of hands on
generating regenerous Hope.

Note:

Pandemonic Hope is part of a series of theological reflections offered to and from the All Souls Unitarian-Universalist Choir in New London, Connecticut. 

“Inscription of Hope” was composed for the Nebraska Choral Arts Society and Children’s Chorus by Z. Randall Stroope, in conversation with a Russian Folk Tune.  His lyrics are drawn from an inscription on cellar walls hiding Jews in Cologne, Germany, during World War II. Stroope’s own 1994 reflection on the significance of these words, in this Holocaust pandemonic context, “Hope was all they had to hold on to; hope was their only bridge to a brighter [nonviolently restoring justice] tomorrow.”

ForeGiving CelEmbracions

We all have had worst days and best days,
good and bad days and nights
works and plays.

My own largest part of learning to forgive myself
for bad days
of WholeEarth neglect
and win/lose interpersonal compromises,
for bad historic days
of letting go too easily,
too conveniently
forgiving my unforgiving
and unforgiven apartisanship,
for sins of Othering heritage,
for anthro-
and ego-centric supremacy

Is to celebrate our connecting
and reconnecting
wealthiest viral health
safe return
to humanity’s multicultural Home

Silently celebrating my ego’s
largest ecosystemic spaciousness,
deepest wisdom,
widest win/win compassion.

As we learn to con-celebrate
EarthTribe
re-exploring our nondualistic
indigenous
natural/spiritual heritage,

We embrace integral
holistic
holy
transparent
and vulnerably compassionate communications

Restoring green peace
through EarthJustice,

Remerging
regenerative
redemptive co-passion
celebrating my
and our
green eco/theo-logically peaceful
GoldenRule humane/divine identities

WellBeing constellations,
healthy bicameral democratic structures,
harmonic choruses,
fire-circle heated dancers,
multiculturing communion celebrants
cooperatively fore-giving our worst days
becoming our con-celebrated best days
and nights,
works and plays.

ReConnecting Severance

Not saying we’re all the same,
but more same
when sane
than different
even when divergent.

My big TakeAway
from smashing bilateral Edward DeBono,
bicamerally empowered Julian Jaynes,
and bineural systems enlightened Iain McGilchrist
Taoistically together:

What is ecological healthy relationship,
in LeftBrain dominant worldview secular
scientific atheism

Is also theologically interactive experience
to RightBrain recessive sacred aesthetic feelings
and sensory needs
and neuro-systemic health/wealth
strong/flow wants

To avoid LeftBrain dominant distinctions
without possible experiential difference
between ecowomanist
Gaian polytheism
pantheism
and natural/spiritual nondualistic
out/in-sided
Zero/NonZero bicamerally Zoned
natural egobodies inside spiritual TheoMinds
of and for nonviolent multicultural communication.

LeftBrain polycultured
health/wealth systemic
ecopolitical bicamerality
of democratic networks
of nonviolent
verbal/nonverbal communications
evolved from RightBrain prominent feelings

Win/Win original polyvagal neural normative
thrival conditions,
memories,
multiculturing experience
across multiple polypathic regenerations

To restore
and optimize Ego/Earth’s ecological health
and safely defended theological
polytheistic space/timelessly co-relational
ego/eco-passionate wealth

Of resonant temporal enlightenment
and resilient spatial empowerment
co-habiting bicameral win/win flowing
branching eco-minds
with strong integral
synergetic ego-bodies

More structurally
and systemically same
sane
than metaphysically different
dissonant.

Thing One and Thing Two

Things One and Two
visited Fitness Planet Earth,
a land of milk and honeyed promise

NonJudgement NonZero ego-health zone
for nonviolent communication,

Emergent win/win nongrunting
nonslamming
noncursing
active compassion
in language

responsive positive communication

Internally and externally bilateral space
placed promised time
timeless co-empathic consciousness

CoEmpathic meditation

Not win/lose survival of the autonomous fittest
by making my own stressed-out luck;

Instead,
win/win thrival of flexing resilient
fit in ingest

Remaking
reshaping
reconnecting
re-ligioning our cooperative win/win liturgies
lucky co-investments
co-empathic
bilaterally polypathic
resonant RightBrain Feeling ecopolitically engaged

And resilient Left verbalized intentions
of liberal loving logical win/win poli-economic
retributive judgment-free nonzero planetary Zone

For reconnected empowering bicameral enlightenment

For intelligent
cooperative
co-invested
democratically healthy
co-designing future egohealth/ecosystemic
co-relational wealth

Collateralized opportunity
to optimize thrival trends
for planetary
health/wealth fitness,

Said LeftBrain dominant
Thing autonomous ego One
to RightBrain nonverbally flexing
Things bilaterally ecosystemic
and polypathically interdependent,
Two.

Note: This piece is inspired by a combination of  Nonviolent Communication studies and practice and a recent re-entry into Planet Fitness, a judgment free zone for nonviolence and potentially for integral compassionate work and play, cooperative win/win respect, mutual regard, active wealth of healthy embodied bicameral minds, for both cognitive ThingOne and emotive ThingTwo, resilient strength and resonant flexibility.

Between EarthWorld Views

The differences I hear
between Right and Left political Wings
and personal Hemispheres,

Right world views
are capitalistically clear that I
have made more than my fair share
of unhealthy,
unsafe,
uncompetitive,
unenlightened
and disempowering
personal autonomously irresponsible choices.

Left EarthSystemic views
are equally clear/unclear
that We have made too much
patriarchal
nationalistic
capitalist
predative
extractive and degenerative unfair shares
of unhealthy,
unsafe
economic and politically unenlightened
and disempowering
win/lose
and lose/lose nihilistic
dualistic
Othering
Straight White Male privileged
nationalistic
plutocratic rather than democratic
choices.

We each and all
live somewhere between these two views
of sacred Earth
and a Western secularizing
monoculturing World;

Not in logical opposition
but in eco/theo-logical apposition.

Not necessarily a bipolarizing
disempowering
unenlightened experience;
Potentially a dipolar
co-arising power and light
reconnecting integral memory
of CoPassionate feelings
and needs
and win/win cooperative wants.
