Voices Doubting Sacred Choice

LeftBrain ponderous
Dominant Voice:

When did fear
of Straight White God’s traumatic punishment
for our sins
and for the Patriarchal/Capitalist sins
of our soiled soul Fathers;

RightBrain Felt as
Positive Health EcoChoice:

Overwhelm our love
for therapeutically restoring
sacred Earth Peace
and humane/divine
cooperative
co-invested Green Win/Win
Eco/Theo-Logical Justice?

Seeking Salvation in Retiring Spaces

Prayers,
sometimes lightly lyrical,
slyly satirical,
self-conscious,
ego-
and anthro-chosen folk
transcendently
yet personally
individually woke,
and sometimes full embodied
passions in Praise Him!
shout out

Echo in-
voking round resonance
with all Earth’s eternal
regenerating lively
lovely resilience.

Prayers
express “I feel”
so invoke “I want,
even actively need”
Trust Statements

Or,
prayers are LeftBrain dominant
performances
of True v False
Health v Pathology
internal v external
enlightening transcendent thoughts
v empowering emotional support,
Reason v Passion Stories.

“Lordy, Lordy
I sure do hope
for active Sunday hope
that Donald Trump
will someday,
although probably not this day,
enjoy a long
and healthy
and unusually quiet,
cruelly serene,
claustrophobically private retirement
into suffering
and mental anguish
over all his many sociopathological
sins against natural
and spiritual,
physical
and mental,
embodied and mindful health care
giving
by receiving
copassionate
co-invested communion.”

In this prayer,
what does grandmother Eartha feel?

Lack of sufficient hope
for robust and healthy redemption,
maybe sadness about humanity’s great fall
into partisan disunion,
probably chronic climate anxiety,
in which She betrays
and is betrayed by
fear of RightWing AnthroSupremacy.

Meditations
on red sky climate warnings
nonverbally remind MeSheWe
together invoke nonviolent polypaths
leading to polyphonic
lyrical and PraiseHim!
for what we all,
with thriving rich resilient souls,
wish for

An unusually quiet,
serene,
private retiring redemption

From Old Testament
PatriCapitalist
Nothern White epic histories
of colonization

We nearly all AnthroSupremely invoke
deep EarthTribal fears
of our own BusinessAsUsual corporate
systemic
nationalistic
white cracker violent
discommunications

And we are all dearly angry
about lack of sufficiently empowering
and enlightening retirement funds
and redeeming facts,

Spiraling polynomially spacious circles
of polyphonic prayers intoned
entombed beyond eternal silence
peacefully polypathic

Invoking
“I feel lyrical” performances
and I need more than mere divine performance
embracing deep Nature/Spirit flow
ing widely polypathic
“Praise Him/Her, We Two!”

Wu-wei extending conscious
polyculturing healthy conscience
continuing compassion’s

Revolution’s Peace PerSpective

Go ahead
Dare to invite him
to a climaxing fall-colored picnic

To read you his obituary for himself
and for you,
subject to future updating

still-evolving revolutions

Then,
my retrospective therapeutic turn
to introspectively review again
past traumas
of EgoSpection
surrounded outside
by his contextual EcoSpectral Spectrum Spectives
warm and cool,
freezing and redhot
climaxing traumatic knots

Not to out loud trust
speaking these Interior Obituary Inspections
about myself
and also His Exterior FullSpectral ReInspected
vulnerable truths, as I would heal them
through more transparent healthy wealth
of mutual compassion
slowly moving forward.

Then,
while opening the picnic basket
and our impassioned historic mouths
to speak of our possible future
re-amending revolution,

We take in all we can become grateful
for receiving now
here,
in this sacred dining
graced reperspective place
through our correlational experienced time
space within this eternally nutritious
nature seen and nurture heard
compassionate communion

In this
our eternally momentary
yet fully spacious
nonzero zoning sacred space

Of two separated

with memories as a Southblack/Northwhite couple
and as parents

LeftBrain RightWing Dominance

When reading
and singing
and dancing poetry,
enspiriting Earth’s choreography,
I need not check my LeftBrain dominance
at rhetoric’s RightWing healing door,

But bring PatriCapitalist Him with me
at least once more
to heal and restore

What EarthMothers wisely preach
and indigenously practice
and adore

No severance
between Earth’s natural systemic Truths
and Ego’s spiritual reanimation
restoring healthy EarthyBeauty
thriving
resilient abundance

By letting go
of peevishly competitive
LeftBrain dominantly domesticated
satiated
uneducated
about regenerative systemic design

And, thereby RightWing overgrown
predative
desecrating

Former sacredly healthy green climates
now more pathological
by over-petted Anthros
over-self invested,
Earth infesting pests

With voracious AnthroDivine appetities
of LeftBrain dominant parasites
preying on RightBrain prominent
EarthMother feminists

Who now lament,

“Straight White PatriCapitalists:
can’t resonantly love with’em,
can’t resiliently live without’em.”

Listening for Healthy Spirits

Listen my son
and you shall hear
strange curiosities
about my spiritual career.

A student of science
Left hemispheric

A student of religion
Right ancient indigenous feelings

With mindbody Left lightpowered thoughts,
ecopolitically sold wealthy mind
bought health embodied
for re-connecting Left dogmatic voiced dominance
with Right esoteric muse mystical prominence

LeftNatural and RightSpiritual rebalancing
sexy minds with sensory-neural systemic bodies
is not so re-ligiously disconnecting

Compared to appositional balance,
more complexly back to front incarnations
of health-sensed unilateral flow-evolving time,
past toward future,
seldom future re-membering past
revolving devolutions
of change forward inevitable time
seasons,

With economic and politically religious reasons
patriarchal capitalists
and ecofeminist cooperatists
mistrust each too secularizing
divorced
dissociative Other,
objectified subjects
of violently miscommunicating history.

Forward spirited flow structure
functioning anus universally back
in and forward out stimulating root chakra,
soul,
bilaterally surfing sensations
primordially oceanic.

Bilateral eyes
mirrors of health-seeking WinWins
forward thinking ears
pitched toward future healthy octaves
and safe marching 4/4 rhythms
resonant
and resilient,
left verbal
and right nonverbal communicating
communion sound
prehistoric resounds

Forward reaching arms,
palms up and open
Me embracing We
religiously systemic
sacrificial praising Yang upright
and forward position

To foot forward march
into ecofeminist EarthMother’s
future yintegrally holonic nutrition
and nonviolent communicating co-investments.

Mouth forward speaking
singing back to front,
deep to height harmonic
past through future health care
compassion giving exhales
receiving EarthMother spirited inhales
blowing up our nostrils
and sometimes out our backside
reverse oppositional renal reactions
to slow the venal stench
of our own embodied digestive processes
in partnership with forward sniffing nose

Goes and grows
toward healthy win/win positive
polytheistic
polyculturally rich fragrance
robustly safe wealth
EarthTribe resonant health

Bodies felt flying spirit-mind forward
touched by past voiced
interre-ligioning
health-deductive A-capital-Head
wealth-inductive choice B-Hind

Spiritually massaging
Naturally messaging impositions felt
emerging from anal fear v pleasure
guts angry v paradise found
through feet fleeing v flying
through hearts hyper win/lose tension
v hydrating win/win balance
bicameral

Lungs and throat gasping in
v humming out
sacred/secular reconnecting ohm
Amen

Through Tao’s nonzero zone
sacred refueling minds
naturally embodied
in win/win environmental systems

Ego/Ecotribal

nonviolently listening
for health optimizing

spiritual compassion.

Listen
EarthTribe Feminists
and we shall hear
strange curiosities
about our spirited

Touch the Earth, Reach the Sky

Touching Earth,
reaching sky.

I walk salt shores
where all Souls fly
over joy’s ocean,
under sad bad lands
my faith in quests
we could understand.

Touch this Earth
to feel our sky.

Wise fools ask
our reasons why,
In glad lives
our answers glow,
in sad love
we learn to grow

To heal our Earth
and teach this sky

We are born
while I shall die,
Life’s my time for in between,
to build you a star,
to chase our dream

Touching Earth
while feeling sky

Hugging laughter
feeds my cry,
May I see
what we can give
for future’s child
to sacred live

We touch this Earth
to reach light’s sky

Soaring courage,
healthy high,
All Souls joining
in Earth’s flight
to touch Her right
I reach through night
for love’s last
last
last splendid sight.

This variation on Grace Lewis-McLaren’s hymn  (#301, Singing the Living Tradition) is dedicated to All Souls-PlanetEarth, especially New London, on the occasion of our Great Return, September, 2021.

Between EarthWorld Views

The differences I hear
between Right and Left political Wings
and personal Hemispheres,

Right world views
are capitalistically clear that I
have made more than my fair share
of unhealthy,
unsafe,
uncompetitive,
unenlightened
and disempowering
personal autonomously irresponsible choices.

Left EarthSystemic views
are equally clear/unclear
that We have made too much
patriarchal
nationalistic
capitalist
predative
extractive and degenerative unfair shares
of unhealthy,
unsafe
economic and politically unenlightened
and disempowering
win/lose
and lose/lose nihilistic
dualistic
Othering
Straight White Male privileged
nationalistic
plutocratic rather than democratic
choices.

We each and all
live somewhere between these two views
of sacred Earth
and a Western secularizing
monoculturing World;

Not in logical opposition
but in eco/theo-logical apposition.

Not necessarily a bipolarizing
disempowering
unenlightened experience;
Potentially a dipolar
co-arising power and light
reconnecting integral memory
of CoPassionate feelings
and needs
and win/win cooperative wants.

YangFish in YinWaters

Which feels
healthy to you?
Sounds more PoliticallyCorrect?

PatriarchalCapitalism
win/lose strategic

or

PolyculturalCommunion
win/win organic

Which ecologically tastes most healthy
and/or
theologically wealthy
to you?

To me,
there’s somethin’ fishy
about all that controlling economic strategy
unfolding on a secularized political stage
of win/lose competitions
and bicameral debate

Unable to see outside

Green HumanEquity

If you were to economically invest
in polyculturally healthy ecology

And politically co-invest
in multiculturally wealthy theology,

Then you and we
thou and me
might responsively respect
wealthy co-invested integrity
to reproduce healthy co-empathic engagement.

We wealthy lives
are not egocentrically about competitive security
garnering famous
nor infamous
apartheid places within
and without verbal histories
recreative narratives
prehistoric memories

All about cooperatively winning Earth’s most healthy space
in SolarSystemic,
and somewhat smaller scale
time and space restoring
wealthy health optimizing
win/win ecological strategy

Which is to simply reiterate,
AnthroBiology is equal to individual ego passions
as EarthEcology co-arises
multiculturally living pre-historic nonverbal
on through historic verbalizing,
sometimes singing and dancing,
resonantly and resiliently chancing
EarthTribe compassionate synergy
potential integrity
ionic and iconic equalizing energy,
natural and spiritual,
bilateral and bicameral.
