Fundamentalism v Evangelical

I believe
I can be an evangelical
multiculturally intelligent Christian
if I am not an anti-historical literalist,
a fundamentally white patriarchal dogmatist,
using holy scripture to divide and conquer
what divine creation has compassioned to regather.

I also know beyond death’s shadow
and within life’s promise
A fundamentally patriarchal believer
in God’s might makes Earth right
cannot be a good news gospel driven
spiritually maturing
evangelical Christian believer
and doer
and follower
of polypathic cosmic-conscious Christ
timelessly embodied.

What is healthy evangelical loving witness
is antithetical to patriarchal fundamentalist dogmatism.

Evangelical Christians follow Christ’s win/win multiculturing heart path
of integrity.
Fundamentalists, fake-Christian and fake-Islamic
and fake empowerers of all faiths
and all natural/spiritual systems,
lead win/lose monoculturing mind pathology
of mendacity.

To learn the difference
between fundamentalism and evangelical vocation
is to know us by our communal natural love
and our divisive anti-spiritual judgments
against those who shrink
down into fundamentally shriveled
win/lose zero-sum narcissists.

Between Heaven and Hell

Singers and dancers,
artists and writers,
philosophers and poets,
academics and health professionals,
parents and teachers,
actors and contemplatives,
grandparents and children,
live and die between Heaven and Hell.

Between Heaven’s interdependent sensory Enlightenment
and Hell’s individual secularized Industrious-Militant Revolutions

Pathology and sin result from severing healthy spiritual tools
for development
from degenerative denatured fake-wealth weapons
for destruction.

Heaven’s tools restore peace
where re-tooled weapons
without divine mercy
redistribute Hell’s sure-fire punishments.

Sacred tools,
like bicameral hearted minds,
were
and are
for hunting,
gathering
harvesting
cooking
serving
cleaning
recycling
composting
regathering,
impressing health-restoring FuturePowers.

Weapons were
and are
for killing
threatening
hating
condemning
judging
repressing
depressing
suppressing wealthy MultiGenerational Matriarchal FlowCycles.

Technological tools,
post industrial,
have evolved from
WorldWideWebs of Heaven
for cooperative social health information

Too often devolved into propaganda weapons
against WorldWideWalls for self-ghettoizing Hell
promulgating competitive anti-social disinformation.

Sacred tools, verbal and non-verbal,
derive from
and help build
heart-paths toward progressive liberties in love
and conserving equitable and responsible compassions.

Secularized weapons
contrive from
and help destroy
other paranoid
rabidly bipolar
mind pathologies.

Sacred tools serve immortal life.
Secular weapons serve up violent death.

Just as word choice
is the smallest detail
of communal win/win communication,

Weapon choice is the smallest
and also least cognitively wealthy, part
of commercial and residential conscious win/win choice-making
well-tooled
politically healthy
true-wealth conserving co-investment,

Articulating
incarnating
re-creating
sacred life evolving in-between
LeftBrain’s ideas of Heaven
and RightBrain’s experiences of Hell.

Between Heaven and Hell

To deliberately
mindfully
with full integrity,
intentionally choose to live
between Heaven and Hell
may be the most sacred gift of all returns.

This Messianic gift
is also the Bodhisattva in-between
back and forth
narrow way gift of discerning
win/win relationship potential
within win/lose past communications,

Sacred opportunity
without secular risk
within, and emerging from,
business as left-brain dominant usual,

Ours to offer each other
through empowering courage–political,
positively invested curiosity currency

[micro through macro economic,
ego through eco logical
zero-prime relational],

transparently uniting-inviting,
so not negatively judging and violating and threatening,

universally vulnerable,
so profoundly multicultural compassion.

To live between Heaven and Hell
is a messianic choice
not only for everyday conversion
into one sacred holonic Body,
but even more intimately
a choice within every moment.

Choices are regeneratively supported
by healthy verbal and non-verbal environments,
sanctuaried sacraments,
sacred ritual experiments
with people,
plants,
planet,
all EarthTribe living species
and organically interdependent ecosystems
inspiring
and inspired by Paradise past
recreating Heaven’s fulfilling future.

Life is this cross
over and back
and forth,
up and down,
in and out,
like breathing in Heaven and Hell
and breathing out Hell or Heaven
in each conscious thought
through mindful choices,
hopeful curiosities,
vulnerable courage,
transparent positive/negative passions

For and against
outward and inward
upward and downward,
between enspiriting inspiring Heaven
and denatured expiring Hell.

ReAttachment Therapies

Dr. Sue Johnson,
developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy,
rooted in an Attachment Theory
that organic creatures live healthier
more robust
compassionate
and prosperous lives
when their original womb relationship
and earliest parent/child interdependence
is more warmly attached
and less coldly detached,
and certainly not absent,
stolen for social protection disservices,
lost,
threatened,
and/or strategically bombed,
abused,
and then chronic Industrious Revolution neglected.

This Emotionally Focused Therapy
is also RightBrain emotionally intelligent Attachment motivated
counter-cultural to LeftBrain dominant patriarchal history.

Where LeftBrain Yang
applauds heroic autonomous
strong and silent messiahs,
and/or aggressive and loud Terrorists,
Narcissists,
and infamously Victorious Colonizers;

RightBrain Yin
flows out Her polyphonic non-verbal calming webs
of healthy domestic-internal nutrition,
cooperative
nurturing
integral
synergetic mutual emotional intelligence, co-passioning
ego-inside and eco-outside therapies.

Such interdependent therapeutic environments,
climates, if you prefer,
are also invited by Permaculture Design
as contrasted with patriarchal AgriBusiness,
factoring,
fracking,
fragmenting,
fissioning,
fracturing degenerative monocultural strategies
which historically appear as if aggressive and violent colonizing threat
is only worth mentioning
if we identify with the HumusTribe
or disposable tree commodities
or most any resident of an undisturbed sweet grass meadow

Under a sunny June blue sky
with billowing white cumulus pillows
floating like great benign ships, unStated
gracefully presenting a fragrant breeze,
flowing with an invisible
yet enlivening
downstream destination,
promising to return again
one perfect every day.

Or, should I say,
Former resident
of now paved and exhausted meadows?

ReAttachment Therapies,
rooted in original parent/child healthy interdependent experience,
are also found between resilient adult couples
and calm, slow-grown eco-village communities
and good polycultural faith communities
like organic extended family farms,
left-brain Universalists also right-brain Unitarians,
and Quaker Meetings for Win/Win consensus-building,
and in Zen Buddhist orgies of silent sensual stillness,
and Taoist ecopolitical Tipping Pointers
toward more Yintegrity
for less Yangominous narcissistic mendacity,
as if mountains were even secularly possible
without sacred valleys,

More liberal left love
for less stingy “I got my personal fundamentalist religious rights” anger
and fear of multicultural spiritually co-attaching values
and hate for elitist theoretical powers

[either/or unbalancing disambiguous
both/and balancing ambiguity]

through bad-humored
punishing patriarchal god-icons

[and good-humored
healing matriarchal goddess-incarnations],

Bear economies
leaving us lazy squirrels
and too lame
and slow
and tame Turtle Islanders behind
to smell more than our fair share
of Loser toxic exhaust
where once blossomed meadowed flowers.

ReAttachmentTherapy
is sometimes called Restorative Justice
instead of Retributive Patriarchal Punishment,
Cooperative Win/Win Game role playing
instead of Capitalism’s Win/Lose racist colonizing work,
Communion
instead of invasive LeftBrain dominant sexist fragmentation.

ReAttachment Therapy
is sometimes called active love, polypathic
instead of absence of requited, co-redemptive compassion,
polyphonic
well-sung,
yang/yin yinyang redanced
through past and future meadows.

Fragments of Earth

Fragments of voices
like phrases of song
are accepted inside
as not too horribly wrong.

But whole operas,
learned dissertations,
and uncertain scientific recreations
are not accepted outside
without establishment’s substantial reservations.

Indigenous wisdom hears
and reveres interdependent wholeness
while modern patriarchal strength
is willing to sacrifice independent fragments
to preserve overpowering social lengths.

If space is heard
in wholeness
versus inter-connecting fragments,
How different is this totalitarian
transcendent view?
When universal time
expects unchanging chronic wholeness,
constipating stuckness,
rather than interdependent holistic fragments
co-acclimating of and for this WholeEarth.

Fragmented voices
swallow sounds of hopelessly isolated individuals
inside and outside
when not listened to
with totalitarian absence of reassurance,
lack of personal appreciation,
or denied basic healthy identity tolerance.

These sounds
and song fragments
universally disintegrate Now,
against Past,
and Future
dispassioned
cycles of colonizing
violent revolutions.

Voices for fundamentally supremacist religion,
like choices for national monoculturing “patriotism”
sound terrifying when Wholeness
becomes transcendent universal Patriarchy,
kleptocratic,
rather than internally uniting Matriarchy,
messianic.

Voices sung in dissonance-stretching harmonies

[of oxymorons,
re-creative tensions,
dichotomies
between competitive left minds, theoretical,
and cooperative right bodies, experiential,]

listen, instead,
for interdependent global Wholeness
co-arising universally personal multicultural fragments
of empowering integrity,
political symphony,
economic synergy,
artistic epiphany,
capital cooperativity,
universal fragmentary synthesis.

Fragments of voices
like phrases of song
are best accepted inside
like outside
if not too horribly long.

Faith in Politics

Faith in politics is not popular.
Other than optimistic civics teachers
and elected office holders,
faith feels troublesome
when mixed with social empowerment
over Others.

“Others” holds and hides broad diversity:
children
women
people of color
prisoners
slaves
indentured servants
pets
cattle
sheep
farms
plantations
ranches
watersheds
melting ice caps
rising sea levels
polluted air
worn out topsoil
sewage disposal and highway and military systems
industrial production and consumption and devolutions…

Good faith in power
is faithful to power WITH Others,
WITH win/win co-aspirations,
and ego/eco-active non-ZeroSum hope
for health increasing more
openly contagious co-integrity.

Bad faith in power
builds reasons to justify
power against and over Others,
with win/lose evolutionary ZeroSum assumptions
about economic closed entropic-trending systems
currently favoring Western white privilege.

The faith

[belief
reason
emotional and cognitive intelligence
left-brain win/win active hope
and right-brain felt love, compassion, integrity, co-empathy]

of Messiahs

[and Bodhisattva PeaceCorp Warriors, global mustard seed planters,
Hiawathas and Renewable Energy (inside and out) Advocates,
and Ancient EcoFeminist Wisdom Healers]

is rooted in early cooperative intent
to push together toward light

[integral harmony singing Voices of Other
health
mutual empowerment
happy, inviting climate therapy
potential for personal
and global
integrity].

Good faith in politics
seeds active hope
for multicultural empowerment,
co-passioned love for synergetic health
as also true organic wealth.

Faith in healthy empowerment
is as original

[seminal
ZeroZone right-brain prominent
sacred
sacramental
integral
creative
rebirthing]

as our first pilgrimage
from EarthMother’s womb
into this timeless light
of healthy passage
into interdependent passions
yet including autonomous
re-creative tension
promulgating win/win revolutionary intent.

Healthy intent
to see with both eyes equally

[curiously
courageously
secularly Left-Either/Or
and sacredly Right-Both/And
cooperatively win/win
nutritionally strategic]

To hear
both future right-healthed
multicultures
and past left-wealthed
polycultures
listening with
and then speaking up and out for organic
Faith in health-power
multipoly-pathic Voices

Still wise enough
to avoid monopolizing integrity’s Light.

Nature Preserves

I don’t know many people so urbanized
they would not prefer a nature preserve
and star light
for neighbors, day and night,
over a new developed suburbanization.

Not too many people smile
when they drive by a familiar farm
with woodlands,
now scraped and scaped,
graveled and turfed,
cut down and razed with concrete foundations,
ready for more humans
not preserving natural relations
with more diverse species.

Nature preserves
promote both natural and spiritual reserves.

External nature preservation
emotionally walks
senses
feels and smells and touches
internal spiritual reserves,
sanctuary,
sacred habitat.

Most of us still cherish
natural multicultural places
as also spiritual polyphonic spaces
to visit,
know as cherished neighbors.

Few of us still live and love
as residents among sacramental traces
of past Paradise.

Even if right-brain’s emotional integrity of Earth sensed
as an interdependent matriarchal reservation
for restoring justice
through multicultural preserves
for inclusively democratic peace
has atrophied
to prefer the smell of asphalt
and chemically treated turf,

Together,
we can still remember
sacred ecological relationships,
glowing star lit nights,
cherished campfire habitats
following only DNA’s inspired multicultural health
as spirited happiness
instructions.

Natural wisdom
that what is good,
even for autonomous ego-development,
is also healthy
for sacred Nature’s preservation,
including Humane Places,
natural
sacramental,
emotionally and cognitively intelligent
Reservations

about what is healthy progress
and what is impoverishing regress.

Often,
in left-brain dominant prose,
We invest capitalized empowerment intention
investment in unnatural domesticated places,
re-nouns and pro-nouns more Proper,
speaking of independent ego-autonomy’s
drive-by missions,

And,
we fail to naturally reserve more capitalization
for what feeds our Spiritual Integrity Preservation.
