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.

Personal Ecstasy v Political Enchantment

Do you sense a difference
between ecstasy
and enchantment?

Ecstasy draws me out of my ego,
my body
my mind
my autonomous autumnal consciousness,
winter isolated awareness.

And enchantment?

Enchantment draws me in.
More of a seduction,
maybe even curious
invitation.

Ecstasy sounds louder,
bolder,
short-term climatic
and requires loss of ego-centered monopoly games

While enchantment may include promise
of all that bluster
and outsidedness
yet adds the longer sunlight summer
before and after relationship
of seduced out
fascinated
hypnotically co-empathic internal root induction,
promising integrity’s path of quieter seduction,
restoring internal becomings with external belongings

Yet to magically
climatically
mythically appear
on life’s Yang ecstatic
Yin enchanting
horizon of newborn
politically green
spring.

There’s political engagement
Then personal wedding
Then ego/ecopolitical re-engagement
of every spring through winter daily choices.

Enchanting Mother Fish

To find enchanting integrity,
She transparently confronts her disenchantments
with present and past toxic flow,
disempowering absences of synergetic experience,
like rape and enslavement and aggressive commodification,
disharmonic songs
without time and space
for proper therapeutic dance,
desecrating liturgies of everyday.

Disenchantment
unveils what and where
and when and why
newborn
we belong within enchantment,
ecstatic and just plain ornery
ordinary static.

And yet,
we focus on this polarity
as if any one day and night
were all positive ecstasy
or negative static
while darker disenchanting days
of rain and pain
can bring ecotherapeutic memories
of sunny gains
through past regenerations
more than mere degeneration.

As EarthMothers often say
among our own schooling selves
and to our spawning young:

Bad days and nights,
We will know these,
climate health and pathology,
as we also hope for delights.

Choose battles,
Pick poisons,
don’t gulp them all.
Some are more disenchanting nights
with longer darker terms,
more seductively yet reductively
unveiling memory’s disenchanting dust
through past enchantments.

Unorthodox disenchanting rust
unveils potential
for integrity’s more enchanting return
to grace of well-sung cooperative place
and beauty’s eternally relentless face,
pace,
absence of disenchanting disgrace.

Disenchantment with personal
and familial
and community
and state
and school
and religious
and national
and global disabilities
on our worst chaotic dismal days
haunting through our relentlessly stuck nightmares
unveil potential therapeutic integrity
as enchanting special abilities
for multiculturing therapeutic wealth
of cooperatively-held health
through timeless solidarity
of Oceanic Ownership mentality.

As other people’s creation stories,
then other species’ narratives
turn from mere entertaining escapes
from our daily addiction
to a disenchanting society
of Ego’s inside epic endless tale,
and turn toward surprising eco-invitations
to see and hear mutually owned integrity of grace
and mendacity playing with disgrace,

Disenchantment,
motivating escape,
slowly unveils cooperative enchanting potentials
for growing ZeroZone mutual WinWin integrity,
inside out toward light’s everyday enchantment
with EgoHere greets EcoNow,

Integrity’s residential flow
enchantingly co-present

As transparently enchanting
water streams
within and without
a dancing mother fish.

More Change More

So, like I said
awhile ago,
I’m reading until totally dead
“Systems Thinking for Social Change.”

With four primal turning and returning seasons
of natural yet spiritual developments
between dusk of where we disenchantedly are,
and dawn of where we would become re-enchanted
cooperatively together.

Unfortunately,
I cannot see past systemic Stage Zero
Notice resilient integrity
especially by engaging key disabled stakeholders
in our current disenchanting dusk.

The usual dust
stereotypically non-elite,
Stage Zero invites each disabling unity
to re-enchant ecstatic dreams of belonging
restored to hurt sources of hope
yet fractured
wounded
sick
diseased
criminalized
victimized
raped
purchased way too cheaply,
abused
neglected
feared
angered
insane
hearing voices of souls and species endangered
disenchantments inside primal green reforesting
Turtle Island
sacred naked Space
for a stone-soup fire-circle re-commitment celebration.

Green SkyWoman’s revolutionary choir-room
for naming mendacious chirps
and labeling disenchanting bleets,
pecks
and hammers,
bites
and thrusts,
cooks
and eats,
twitters
and tweets
our songs
and danced enchanting journeys
west and east
of any systemically disabled ecstatic species

In MotherEarth’s continuing reforesting project
for healthier DNA wealth
through futures cooperative
global through local systemic resonance.

Change
re-establishing StageZero
outside common RealTime sacred ground
creates inside resonant revisions
of what healthy polypathic regenerators want
to cooperatively achieve.

To less conservatively grasp continuing disenchantments
with where we remain deconstructively stuck
competing for ultra-violet enlightenment
multicultural ecstasy
of polycultural polyphonic blessing
WinWin ZeroZones
of Ego-EcoLogical Resonance.

Here Yang ultra-nonviolent
With Now Yin at least not not green
through aquamarine

Integrity’s stone-soup ancient Paradise Lost,
now new reborn enchantment found
and bound toward NighTime’s ecstatic integrity.
