Embedded SpringTimes

Perhaps we all secretly long
to be embedded in perpetual spring time.

My most entertaining pre-pubescent memories
of spring’s most sacred times,
when occasionally left
to my own leisurely adventurous pursuits
outside for further natural/spiritual embedded nest

Include a warm and sunny afternoon
unfolding on Saturday’s mid-western stage,
going to a pond
waiting on the edge of wild
lying on my belly
with my nose nearly touching

Her still surface waters
watching spiders
walk over Her
polliwog organic submarines
waving
going somewhere fins
propelling, with me,
into our Saturday afternoon
nutritional adventures
embedded in feeding FlowSource
well-being entertainments.

Another spring Saturday,
perhaps closer to full pubescent
FlowSource entertaining feelings,

I ran far back into the RoundField
where I knew a solitary MotherTree,
like me,
busy getting dressed up
in Her fulling spring leaves
while I unbusily removed all my clothes
and climbed Her
full body hugging Her trunk,
embracing and thanking each sturdy
warm-used limb
all my forceful way to Her most sacred top

To look and feel together
across this green alfalfa field
with all surrounding trees
a deeply fertile ocean forest
green-radiant slumbering mysteriously back at us,
this happy solitary FlowSource
MotherTree and ResourceMe
unseen WinWin feeling together triumphantly
becoming Be

Indigenously embedding entertainments,
Memories much richer and deeper and older
yet naked and wider and younger
than anything I ever heard or saw mid-winter
coming from inside black and white TV.

Empowering Passions

In passionate psychology,
powers of proactive compassion
are generally thought of in personal
and familial
interdependently relational
perspectives.

In political science,
large-scale powers for proactive compassion
resist reactive competition to merely overpower the opposition,
preferring pro-active energy for liberal love
constrains against investments in conserving capital-hoarding capacities
feeding and fueling multi-generational greed of privileged inheritance,

Social altruism and political violence, passion’s contrasting powers
might restoratively or retributively justify
ethically valid and morally effective resolutions
even if not immediately peaceful and universally democratic,

Robust political powers
are typically thought of as the great and mighty public sector
applying state and national perspectives,
stories,
power histories advocating cooperative public policies
and commercially marketing unnecessarily risky investments in egocentric competition chaos,
reductive consumerism,
conflicting materialism,
greed,
mendacity,
hubris,
anthro-centrism,
aggressive nationalism,
violent racism,
deadly fascism,
enslaving colonialism,
toxic patriarchalism, etc.

In psychology,
we can easily extend cooperative power
to neurology’s integrity of positive energy,
active internal networking,
contrasted with disintegrity of negative power,
fading energy thoughts,
extinguishing co-empathic feelings,
feeding on internal climates of hostility,
paranoia,
rabidity.

In political science
we could extend power as analogous to economic energy,
cooperatively democratic investment in actively healthy compassion,
investment in integrity,
and a darker competitive run-away dysfunctional
nationalistic
supremacist energy unmindful of deadly ecological chaos,
delusional divestments away from nutritionally balanced systems,
disturbing dis-integrity of public sector negative energy,
entropic
nihilistic
health-threatening policies,
procedures,
competitive educational protocol,
psychological preferences for Win/Lose behaviors
and thinking and assumptions underlying unmitigated
fight or flee capitalism.

National health power, and not pathological disempowered feelings,
extend positive energy climates
of active democratic co-passionate WinWin missions

Antithetical to reactive
plutocratic capitalism,
kleptomanic exploitation,
A more narcissistic,
sometimes even sadistic,
sense of fear-mongering
hate-marketing
anger-imaging sedition
from global promise of healthy power futures
for integrity’s compassionate eternal ZeroSum energy,
not not interdependent organic neural roots.

When our individual actions
do not reflect our personal powers for extending compassion,
then we can choose to train
and plan
and network for healthy positive multiculturing change
systems.

But, what to do
when public sector actions,
choices,
priorities,
do not reflect one’s compassionate power/energy political training
committed to international EarthEmpowerment
deep learning,
wide-passioned teaching,
polypathic cooperative education,
co-passionately non-violent listening before speaking?

How do democratically faithful psychological individuals
and compassionate faith-in-action political communities
restore healthy peace
and non-sectarian informed justice for all EarthTribes?

Indigenous,
and yet emigrating;
Immigrant,
and yet already green sanctuaried;
Healthy-life pilgrims,
guest migrant laborers, producers, consumers, families,
evolving communities whose only talking-walking labor
is to survive competitive
commercialized
retributive justice normative educational systems
suspicious of diversely compassionate climates
and politically cooperative co-passionate teachers
advocating long-term green regenerative synergy,
secular with sacred nature/spirit communions,
wealth of authentic long-term health paradigms.

How do we cooperatively and resiliently continue
to financially and communally support
government leadership
compliant, not defiant,
with universally shared non-sectarian values
for a democratically inclusive health and happiness prosperity
of resilient energy systems
rooted in organically compassionate historic constitutions?

Where do we draw the compassionate line
around anti-democratic narcissistic violations
of ego- and eco-therapeutic constitutions?
Positively professed for true national democratic health
truly secular/sacred prosperous
non-sectarian happiness
enchantment
ecstasy
WinWin bliss
everyday loving and mindfully interdependent passion.

OldYear Question

Said the last wrinkled brown leaf,
falling toward late dark ecstatic ground
crumbling into wet somber grass,
to the twig
belatedly letting go,

What does eternal healthy life feel like?

But, remembered romance,
enchantment,
resilient nurturing radiance
before and after
twig’s silently reassuring
timeless non-reply.

Climates of Ecstasy

Any difference between feeling horrified, on one hand,
and disenchanted thoughts, on the other,
seem connected to punishing error and folly in others
unlike our self-righteous ego identities
trained to settle for a Win/Lose anti-communal
anti-trusting world.

Such disparities are even less wise when paranoid
and manic,
a difference in degree
between tragically toxic and merely Win/Lose business as usual,
between outside projection and inside rejection
on our shared global potential enchantment stage.

Then, too,
perhaps any disappointing difference between climatic ecstasy
and everyday enchantments,
in-between wu-wei,
still kindly love our best
and healthiest
and most beautiful,
sensual,
graceful local cooperative presence.

Each ecstatic day may bring some of both
cooperative enchantment
and Left v Right disenchanting competitions
to avoid horror and terror out there,
without doubt,
but also everyday disenchantments
of a complex, sometimes chaotic, domestic darkness.

An Amusing Music Muse

I suspect I’m more interested in how Sondheim writes music
than the Beatles,

Although I have no information
to support this paltry hypothesis

Much less could I justify to patient well-versed you
why I also suspect
this tells me something about who I am

And vocationally about who I am meant to be
as a gospel communicating person,
a transporting soul
sharing sung enchantments.

Does linguistic content
inform mystery’s melodic message?

Or do melody and rhythm
reign before shaping
unfolding ecological
psychological
theological lyrics?

Or all of these sacred ingredient voices
speaking with secular integrity
Above?

Deep love learning below

Earthy Ecstasy

To see ecstatic Earth
is to no longer see our home
as merely static,
framed,
quantified,
commodified

Yet,
To see all physical nature as dynamically changing,
ecstatically or more BusinessAsUsual,
is not necessarily to suddenly discover stones
are animistically organic
and ego-conscious.

To find a surrounding universe
or intimate home
ionically balancing,
ergodic repeat patterned,
fractally holonic,
octave tuned and turning,
need not require concluding all things are harmonically alive,
dynamically divine,
polypathic and polyphonic integrity,
climates of eco-ecstasy.

Time between living organic regeneration
and static fossil degeneration
may be a blink
or as slow and steady as a failing tree
falling in Earth’s reforesting nutritional landscape
without hungry humane eyes
for ego show and eco-telling
sacred liturgical dances
cooperative life
written in WinWin EarthTribe songs
in multicultural dialects.

Whether change is predator
or prey,
subjectively overpowering
or self-empowering objective,
infective purposeful cause
or affectively meaningful effectiveness,
theologically omnipotent
or ecologically omnipresent,
depends on rational choices for ego-acquisition
and natural organism ways and means
for healthy cooperative requisitions.

When Earth’s climate healthy optimization
feels like why economic predation
of angry quakes
and risky winds,
floods of despair
and flames of terror

Then organic universe
intensely invites our prey-erful ecstatic instincts
and our messianic natural spirited belonging
to restoring peace
like bird song,
Celebrating resonance of bulbous wombs,
redundant spring flowers,
root systems growing cautious climate re-animism,
curious cooperative nutrition landscapes
of mutual redesign,
courageous WinWin faith
for lost preyed upon regenerations

Sacred integrity’s
Climate health revolution.

UnEarthly ecstasy,
Sacred revolutions.

Time InBetween

I seem to remember
a golden post-toddler childhood
in which each day was a journey
ecstatically timeless,
yet within bookends
of coral dawn
and bruised dusk,
between waking from true timeless sleep
and returning to my evoluting inside place
for adventurous pilgrimage,
courage in face of nightmares,
curiosity looking full-face
between inside enchantments
and outside ecstasies.
But now
I am that parent who calls to liturgical dinner,
harvests and buys the victuals,
plans the sacramental meals
on my better focused days,
administers all cleansing rituals,
defends all rights against retributive trespass
and pollution
of sand and soil and water
sacred energy…

Secular disenchantments
distract from Here we are in this inviting,
yet constantly changing,
day for just us Now,
far outweigh sacred enchantments.

Ecstasy feels like a reserve
preserved for early WinWin childhood
on a glorious summer day of liberty,

While mendacity of time’s turbulence,
downdrafts,
push-back,
competitively usual business
projects lack of time for leisurely enchantments
from unseen dawn
through vaporizing dusk,

Two moments of each outdoor day
unlikely to engage my full, ecstatic,
still-parenting old age presence
remembering enchanting golden childhood.
