Green Sanctuary Propositions

Who are you most longing to become?

How we answer this is different for an ancient rooted tree
than for a recent immigrant
searching for a niche of stable self-sufficiency.

Who we already have become together
feels more important to thriving groves of WiseElders
than to adolescent immigrants
actively learning creolizing bilingual skills
still coming together for survival.

So too, offering Sanctuary,
becoming Sanctuary,
inviting Sanctuary,
is rooted in Green complex nutrients
for feeding
and warm wet watering
whispering easier
cozier
more accessible nutrients
for everyone–
but especially appreciated
by more recent emigrants
to a new garden of hospitality,
of multicultural cooperation,
of shared cooperative residence
and patterns of safe,
sometimes exciting, new transport
toward healthiest wealth.

A gardener’s intent
to both offer and share sanctuary
may provoke well-nurtured gratitude
in a recent annual immigrant,
but a more sleepy and self-satisfied entitlement
in mature seniority of perennials,

Yet, primordially feeling and speaking,
we are all immigrants newly becoming together
with each new dawn,
and determined to cooperatively rest
in grateful dreams
with each renewing dusk.

Who are we most belonging
by becoming Green Sanctuary
together?

Some guilds of mutual interest
and investment
invite growing a cooperative sanctuary for food,

Other teams choose cooperatively owned and managed shelter,
gardens,
farms,
transporting cars and trucks
and bikes and horses,

Others focus on cooperatively owned and managed soil,
observing that democratically co-invested compost,
like capital,
recalls healthy savings in a nutritional bank
for cooperative food constituents.

And so it went,
whether Republican or Democrat,
Libertarian or Green,
Who we want to become together
is more cooperatively resilient,
more robustly compassionate
and co-empowering,
so less aloof
alone
smug and self-satisfied
about our competitive win/lose economic
and partisan histories of colonization;

When, truth become remembered,
we are all reborn naked
and needy
immigrants.

Occupying Revolutionary ZenSoul

What is wrong with deficit-growing expenditures
to continue supporting LeftBrain industrialized secular present
and past well-financed war-mongering threats
against nations
and people
and plants
and planet?

And nuclear ballistic arm-building,
and a Hummer and automatic defense rifle
for every Red, White, and TrueBlue household,

But shovels,
hoes and rakes,
seeds and trees
oceans and forests
and GoldenRule SacredEarth positive attitudes
are optional,
under-valued under-invested in future
Patriotic-Matriotic
Win-Win
Ego-EcoBalancing Systems
of politics,
governance
learned from ecological parents
and SacredEarth-Soul Schools
of and for Restorative Healing Education.

This is not really such a great post-millennial stretch.

We already have abundant Cooperative Ownership,
self-other governance incorporated guilds,
networks,
cooperative businesses
and corporations
for food and fiber and fabric and weavings
for design and planning

Health service production for and with consumers,
co-passionately cooperative WinWin investors
and strategic designers
such as the Tellus Institute,
WinWin restorative ego-ecotherapeutic models
such as Work That Reconnects,

We already have deep spiritual ecology,
going back to notnot doublebinding acclimating Bateson
with De Bono and Julian Jaynes
struggling in Thomas Kuhn’s revolutions of paradigmatic creolization,
on back to Buddha’s EmptyEgoLeft
balancing Interdependent Sacred EcoSoul Right,

On back to LaoTsu’s Yang with Yin is WinWin
while mountainous Yang over-ruling valley Yin
is AnthroCentric Hubris
of degenerative WinLose dominance,
dissonance,
chaos

When we could choose De Bono’s bilateral complexity,
fractal double-bound octaves
of neural-sensory memory
regenerating
reweaving SevenGeneration Futures
remembering SevenGenerations
of grace-invested WinWin karmic past.

This is future SacredElder training.
It could be bicamerally useful
reincarnating Congressional Offices
and CEOffices
and Uniting International Health and Welfare Offices

Not just of and for the Unitarian-Universalists,
not reserved to EarthCreation GreenChristians
and Moslems
and Hindus,
and Buddhists,
and Quakers,
and Early Colonial USA EnLightenment Age
Sunday Schools
and Shabbat Schools
and Catholic Schools
and Private Theological and Liberal Arts and Political Sciences Schools.

Enlightenment Age 1700s parents
like Mr. and Mrs. Jefferson,
and their son Thomas,
wrestling with personal political feelings about power
within passionate intimacy,
beauty and truth
in tension with enslavement of sacred-nature.

Wondering within and about EarthSoul Light’s Original Intent
for a more democratic economic and political,
personal and natural,
intimate and spiritual Welfare,
health optimizing for all participants in SacredLight,

Followers of CoMessianic Light,
redemptive-cooperative healing warmth,
this Soul
SpiritusMundi
of SacredEarth,
sacred humane dignity
rooted in sacred natural GoldenRule WinWin Law
and Systemic ReStorative Peaceful
Domestic and International
Order,
within and upon
Gaia, still-emerging health teleology
v. pathology.

Order itself
rooted in polytherapeutic imaginations
of DNA-scriptures,
bionic-ionic structures,
fractal-valley folds
and secularizing dissonant unravelings,

EmptyEgoWombs and Interdependent EcoNature-Spirits,
Gaian Holy and Holonic
song and dance epic opera stars
and starlets,
twinklers and twinklettes,
Holonic PolyPathic Lights
occupying revolutionary SacredEarth’s ZeroZen Soul,
anima mundi,
Holy Matriarchal EarthSpirit of EcoMessiahs.

What is wrong with deficit-growing expenditures
to further invest in LeftBrain industrialized secular dominance
rooted in history’s past over-investment in retributive justice

Is the BothAnd Option,
we could mainstream ReStorative Ego/Ecojustice Education
for Future ZeroZen WiserElders instead.

Cooperative Philanthropy

The day our United Way

slurps some Reality Stew

we will change this name

to The Competition Way;

competing for community support with the same constituency

we are teaching to compete with each other

for both community support and service.

Our United Way systemically grows

a Divided Fail.

 

The day our Philanthropic Foundation

absorbs some permaculturing compost,

we will learn to ask whose foundation is this really?

Are we a Foundation of inclusive cooperation?

A Foundation with Golden Rule

applied to all species living now

and in our global future,

incarnated by our Elder species

for this regenerative purpose?

 

Are we a Philanthropic Foundation

created by people

who deeply cared about sustaining life’s integrity

for seven generations?

Are we more a Foundation of confusing competition

for scarce resources,

or a Foundation for regenerating abundant contentment,

goodness,

beauty,

wisdom,

optimized economic policies for cooperative

ecological systems of health and well-being;

for minimizing suffering and exploitive competition,

economic commodification of Earth’s natural elements and systems,

a Commons that includes the lives of human

racing to win before losing our dreams

of teleological faith?

 

Could we become a Foundation for optimizing public policies

for mutually cooperative mentoring

of vocational choice,

of permaculturally,

organically,

integrally,

multisystemically functional, maybe even deeply creative, families

and thereby communities?

 

We stand within this permacultural Foundation

for cooperative mutual-investment guilds,

and networks,

and Climax Communities

for growing global consciousness of eco-identity,

Earth Care as Self and Other Care,

designing our ReGenesis Foundation,

with both interior and exterior landscape applications,

both YinTime and YangSpace information eco-metrics,

mutually mentoring Earth’s polyculturally cooperative eco-logic.

Watching

Noticing each moment,

I feel watched.

Immersed in creation’s coincidental sea,

I hope to hear our past

folding back to inform a thought,

a memory,

a smile.

 

I become benign parasitic prey

of watchers’ redeeming faith.

Their grace absorbs

through warm karma skin

to warmer incarnate guts of hot synergy.

 

These are graced Elders,

watching predictably in my direction

only when I remember to notice them

waving, oscillating, spinning in and through me;

informing my inner space and flow,

settling Earthly tenacious infrastructure.

 

Elixir of breath,

breathing watchers in;

breathing watched insides out.

 

If I notice them

then I am gratefully watched.

When I am grateful for their diastolic prehension

then I graceful watch

together,

forever.

 

We are one event,

become one verb…
