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.

I Have A Son

I have a son
who worries

His economic vocation
requires a political vacation
from the rest of us
and perhaps even light of sun

Which hardly feels sustainable
or resonant
and certainly not win/win resilient.

I have a son
so brilliant
he could choose to hunt
and gather shopping carts
at Walmart

And find a way
to help shoppers feel
he is vacationing
with
and for all of us.

I have a son
whose most visible mistake
is believing his anger and fear
stem from missing invitations
to enter his one true
politically correct
and socially esteemed
vocation

As if any employment
he could embrace
would not become more sacred
by his warm communication,
cooperative invitation,
profound sublimation,
ecosystemic renunciation
of fear
to make wrong
ego-uncentering annunciation
articulation
of what he means
by joining in
with this multiculturing humane race

Of confusing
competitive and cooperative
eco-political pace.

Enrichment

What opposes enlightenment?

Endarkenment?
You know, like dusk,
evening,
end of a day
through end of time
on living Earth.

What opposes empowerment?

Disempowerment.

What might oppose Earth’s enlightenment
and/or empowerment?

For me
or throughout all multiculturing history?

Possibly both?

I see ego darkness,
depression,
fecklessness?
inability to cause
and/or perpetuate health,
safety,
individual powerlessness.

Do disease
and insecurity
and lack of effective power
feel like ways of experiencing poverty,
absence of healthy robust choice
for you,
as seems to be true of my experience?

Yes,
but poverty does not feel like a synonym
for dark feelings
or disempowerment.

Poverty, like racism,
feels more political,
economic,
more ecosystemic.

What is the opposite of ecosystemic enlightenment
and/or empowerment?

Ego isolation,
unsystemic pathological darkness
and/or disempowerment,
disease,
nonemployment,
absence of meaning or purpose,
economic depression,
recession,
political suppression,
dissociative sublimation,
narcissistic idolatry,
monoculturing rage,
violent zero-sum win/lose capitalism,
religious-cultural apartheid,
ecopolitical suicide,
globally generic genocide,
climate exhaustion,
ego-autonomous annihilation

Do these seem to oppose global
and individual
and local enrichment
for you?
as they do for me.

Perhaps what opposes positive multilateral energy
is always some unilateral form,
political
personal
familial
social
psychological
neurological
theological
ecological
economic
cultural
religious,
of impoverishing experience.

The Rabbi’s Awesome Mother

She associated awe with unvoiced age.

Her son often enthused
about awesome tech-paced change,
empowering opportunity,
but, for her,
youth is an age for voicing wonder
as elders remember awesome quiet connection
back with memoried Time.

She found elder awe memories,
structures,
originating imprints,
in trees from humble
yet awesome nuts and seeds,
formed back in timeless forests

Where nutritional root systems
meet yang-strong trunks,
boldly growing toward sunlight,
flirting quietly with moonlight’s fertility
starring light shining our way
from how many awesome staring years ago?

Now enlightening her empowered wonder
about this sensory sexiness
of trunks on root systems
so old she can’t quite recall

How could time carve hoary beds
with rivers of resilient water
flowing down Time’s journey
from wondrously young
toward awesome complex landscapes
of connection
re-connection
volition
revolution
solution
resolution
passion
co-passionate secular communication,
sacred communion.

Maybe if she goes on wondrous line
and writes about these awesome Times
they will become both more musically beautiful
and reconstructed true,

More passionately ageing together
with respect for Earth’s revolving
gorgeous flowing wisdom
and joy for multi-sectored
strong true handsome.

Impertinent Zealotry

Pertinent Compassion

Impertinence
reminds Roshi Susan Murphy,
refers not only to Trumpian rudeness
crudeness
ruthlessness
but also irrelevance
to Earth’s Kingdom
at Compassionate Healing Hand.

I was watching “Silence”
of zealous colonizing missionaries
learning therapeutic compassion
by growing more relevant to cultures
languages
indigenous to unwashed aliens
suffering from capital-zealous impertinence
of selfishly empowered elites.

This, in turn,
reminded me of Trumpian impertinence
regarding health and safety offensive disregard
of a people,
my people,
our people,
a democratically inclusive nation,
but also,
in this time of growing climate pathologies,
a health-impassioned species

Interdependent with thousands of indigenous alien species,
all breathing invested and divested polluted air
just as fire ebbs and swells,

And dries up all drinking water
just as Earth’s skin absorbs
and impertinently dries out
burns out
plays out
resilient compassion for human colonizing impertinence
climatically building,
evaporating clean air
and pure and pertinent waters
of Earth’s primal safe baptism.

Impertinence is deaf and blind
and capitalistically dumb
in abusive reaction against Earth’s relevant
sacred
health care voices
and multicultural healing intentions.

When Trumpians campaign
and vote against global health care
of pertinent compassion,
boycott audaciously healthy democratic hope,
We are not bicamerally remembered,
heard
and felt
and supported
and well represented
by disregarding past legislating Democrats and Republicans,
and all creolizing in between
conserve and liberate,
who would not deny any creature
an affordable health care
giving and receiving compassionate act,

Which should not be confused
with unaffordable
colonizing
death-supporting zealotry.

Toxic reactions against health and safety
exclude care for and with those most likely to suffer first
from lack of pure and pertinent drinking water
healthy soil
for people
and our interdependent plants,
troubled by zealous smoke and fires
colonizing dried out dispassions
resisting more bicameral healing pertinence
of better healthcare climates
audaciously wealthier
and multiculturally therapeutic past

Wise and pertinent missionaries,
permacultural designers,
compassion empowering facilitators
of and for restoring peaceful justice
arrive on new adventure shores
to grow co-empathic love,
co-passioning health,

First to listen
and learn
indigenous health and climate care values
and core disvalues
already implanted
through sacred MotherEarth’s
green-blue eco-political voices

Democratically speaking of what is least likely resonant
with too violent and zealous forgetting
to see
and hear
and think
impertinence of rude Red horizons
predicting further climates and internal landscapes
of diseased fear and anger
co-arising dispirited and denatured hate

While surrounded still
by Earth’s reciprocal Green-Blue chorus
of more quietly passioned living waters
restoring peace circles
regenerating audaciously warming fires
under cold lent full moon skies
pertinent with healing light compassions.

Mindful HealthCare

Spiritual minds
invite healthy natural bodies
to curiously enjoy safe and significant,
secular and sacred, rhythms
of bicameral co-regulation,
trilateral ego/eco/theo-communication

Further embracing polyphonic
rightbrain resonance
exploring leftbrain polypathic resilience

Of spiritual minds
inviting healthy natural bodies

When We Can Dance

When you can dance
Don’t walk

When you can together sing
Don’t monologically talk

When you can bicamerally love
Don’t just try not to be quite so bipolar lost
afraid and then angry and then afraid…

When you can exercise compassion
Don’t just wear out passion

When you can creolize communions
Don’t colonize others’ ghettos
and gated lack of multicultural community

When you can shout Yes!
Don’t just mumble I’m not not Sure?

When you can cooperatively transubstantiate communion
Don’t just competitively devour disunion

When you are invited into an epic liberating journey
Don’t just conservatively progress

When you can preserve Earth’s vast beauty
Don’t just conserve Business As Usual half truths

When you can accelerate joy
Don’t slowly push on braking sorrow

When you can embrace rightbrain fulfilling feelings
Don’t just calculate leftbrain acquisitive thoughts

When you already feel curious
Don’t slow down for building up courage

When we can access democratically shared recovery
Don’t autonomously seek ego-invested relief

When you can hear and smell cooperatively-owned home
Don’t continue shopping for a visually competitive house

When you can hear and smell a resonantly-managed mind
Don’t continue fantasizing your most beautiful competitive body

When you can hear and smell resiliently healthy Earth
Don’t continue autonomously struggling for a wealthy planet

When you can live with globally compassionate significance
Don’t settle for slowly dying in local safety

When you have freedom to liberally love regeneration
Don’t conservatively worry about freedom from degeneration
While you can still dance
Don’t just walk

While you can walk
Don’t just crawl

While we can positively crawl together
Don’t just negatively crave alone.
