DeMerited Privilege

Some people
see reverse racism
as justified by genetic meritocracy
and historical seniority of sacred monocultural grace
not quite so generously bestowed
as one might more paradise
have multiculturally hoped.

So, some people
see affirmative action
as too liberal with love
too affirming reactionary.

So, some people
see assertive responsiveness
as PositivEnergy ecofeminist reply
to reverse racism
and sexism
and anthro-patriotic nationalistic supremacism.

So, some people
see anthro-supremacism
as RightWinged
patriarchal RedMeat.

So, some people
see patriarchalism
as red-faced egocentrism,
longing to rebelong
in green Paradise days
of GoodNews scriptured Olde.

So, some people
see xenophobia,
reverse ecological
and political empowering face
of rabid LeftBrain egocentrism,
and RightBrain racism
and sexism
and anthro homophobicism

So, some people
fake homo sapien
eco-resonant WiseElder minds
with ego-resilient bodies–
inside spiritual climate health
without regenerative outside natured wealth.

Recreating Healthy Rapture

Christian evangelicals
of GoodNews for spiritual elites
and BadNews for nature agnostic non-elites
radically separate scriptures
describing a divine EarthCreation Story
of past one-week strategic development,
kept in one sacred sciences department,

Away from
evolutionary/revolutionary scripture predicting
future EndTime judgment.

Spiritual anthrocentric Rapture Narratives,
foreshadow nature-embodied Hell on the Negative side
and timeless spiritual Paradise
on the Positive-Redemptive Side
of individual through cosmic
Eco-Theo Logical unfolding
of history’s Great PassionStory.

Yet divorcing our CreationStory
from biblical Rapture Narrative
assumes a dualistic view
of natural past v spiritual future worlds
nature created and spiritual re-creating
rather than a nondualistic dipolar nature
is our outside view
of spirit as our inside shadow
of deep cooperative learning/competitive hating
experiences.

This dualistic anti-evolutionary nature creation event
before and outside
spiritual rapture/holocaust extreme bipolar prediction
for people of all consumed nations
is not supported by Jewish polycultural awareness
of Jesus’s nature/spirit outside/inside time

Nor
by His parables and teachings
holding nature and spirit analogically
and ecologically together,
the flowering spiritual wealth of flowers
as seen in multiculturing grace
of naturally diverse beauty

The suggestion,
If your spirit develops envy and lust
then best to pluck out your own natural eye,
before someone else does it to you.

Jesus of Nazareth
grew up in a culture
of Samson nature-spirit rapturous nonduality.
Spiritual Positive strength
grew with the natural evolving length of hair
on Samson’s superhero head.

Once nature is grasped
as an outside convex view
of Earth’s Creation history,
then Spirit remains an inside concave view,
ego to eco,
natural identity to spiritual individuation
of each healthy individual’s Positive/Negative
Rapture Narrative

Speaking in polypathic feeling-sensory nutrition languages
for Ego-Eco double-binding therapeutic Passion Stories,
mendacious dark
and integrity light.

Evengelical nature Emperors
wear no scripture-inspired spiritual clothes,
much less rapturous Wonder and Awe arraignment.

Transparency

If I were not a GAY white male
living in the USA,
I wonder if I would have grown my LeftBrain up
to so easily hear
Donald John as Head Pharisee
for privileged religiously-held Nationalism–
a totalitarian fake-idol
substituting fake-patriotic raptures
against sacred polyculturing outcomes
for all multiculturing
underprivileged creolizing
natural agnostic and spiritual religious Cultures.

Susan Werner asks
“If God is good
and God is great,
Why is your heaven so small?”

If USA is good,
right or wrong, and
If USA is patriotically great,
loyal to democratic principles of active healthy cooperation
and therefore morally divine,
Why is your current CEO Pharisee of Privilege
so egotistically small,
so badnews mendaciously tiny,
rather than globally sacred
ecologically Great Transitioning
toward restoring climates of polypathic healthy wealth?

If God’s timeless polyphonic Paradise
is too narrow,
too spiritually elitist,
for those of us naturally and/or spiritually underprivileged
victims of Trumpian Win/Lose privileged Rapture smallness,
then how sure are you
you have never had a queerly unorthodox sensual thought?
A flicker of sacred matriarchal woundedness?
A flash of natural wet warm wombishness?
An addictive glimmer of longing to reassociate
with sacred Virginal MotherEarth?

How sure are you of not preferring
innocent transgender lily love for each NewDawn–
Raptures in and of NonViolent Revolutionary Fields?

If we cannot recover
some active multicultural hope of landing together
in God’s jealously occupied
and punishingly withheld Paradise,
if only to avoid monoculturing risks
of hellfire’s sweeping overpopulated damnation
for timeless eternity
of Here with Decomposing/Recomposing Now,
perhaps it is time to recall
Jesus’s God of Love,
WinWin Grace,
restorative ego-ecological
co-messianic
co-operative SpiritNatures,
secular Ego with sacred Eco ZeroZone
nondually co-arising
rapturous WinWin healing.

Transparent secular/sacred ecopolitical vocations
as eco-ministers reforesting wounded Earth
to heal internal addictions to multiculturing Love.

Predators

My older sister,
now in her early seventies,
which was about the last time
she enjoyed a new idea,
in the early 70s, possibly earlier,
I would guess…

She moved to white middle-class
Republican Texas,
with aging Texas sized unresolved adolescent issues,
not too long
after dropping out of Bob Jones University,
southern capital of all-white evangelical anti-Christian racism,
which had fallen prey to unfiltered privilege
of Republican Pharisees,
BadNews for all non-white
non-straight
polycultural ecofeminist Aliens,
therefore not authentically heterosexual white Jesus lovers,
or something patriarchal like that.

Anyway,
a few years ago
I let her know
I had recently been invaded,
not by a goodnews Hetero-Revival,
but by HIVirus.

HI!
I’m Positive.
Don’t pass it on.
Keep me to your loser self.

She emailed me back:
How do you feel about your choices
now?

A few years later
a hurricane went through Texas
and her gated community flooded
resulting in new front porch vistas
of alligators or crocodiles
or whatever Texans have down there,

besides angry straight white privileged Republicans
and Johnson Democrats of suspicious color
and green ecopolitical WinWin persuasions,

swimming upstream
hunting for white-meat prey.

I emailed my sister back,
How do you feel
about your choices
now?

Have not yet heard back.

Reasons for Seasons

Honey.
A question.

One?

For now.
Subject to chain-reaction change.

As long as we’re clear
about our lack of restraining rules.

Quite so, dear.
I’m wondering about that line
“Jesus is the reason
for the Season.”
What was the reason
before JesusSeason?

I mean,
Joseph and Mary
and their parents,
What was their reason
for this Season?
Whatever they called early Winter
back in better
and perhaps somewhat cooler atmospheric days?

They had Hanukkah
I suppose.
But it was more of a political victory celebration
and I’m not sure if it was in December.

What about the Solstice
or fertility rights and wrongs
and other confusing
and often bloody industrious
things of that sort?

Solstice maybe.
But fertility and harvest thereof…
Well, doesn’t sound like the reason
for this Season.

Maybe the butchering and harvest part
if you’re in retail
within Christendom.

Or hospitality.

Speaking of hospitality,
didn’t that visit to Bethlehem
have something to do with an end of year inventory
or census
or something about adding things up
and planning for the future?

So the reason
for this Season
was death and taxes?

Maybe sales tax revenues.
They used to count productive heads.
Now we add up business profits
as Sacred Advent
anticipates income tax Season
with dread.

A very warming thought
dearest.

I think we would do better
to sing
Jesus is A good reason
for the Season.

More of a traditional excuse
for blatant commercialism
and collecting taxes from poor people
for most of Christendom
wouldn’t you say?

You’re so cynical
in the morning.
And by evening
comatose.

That’s right dear.
A range of cynical through comatose.

Which probably has something to do with this dark Solstice.

Another reason for Advent Season.

Another question comes to mind.

Of course, dear,
as we both knew,
your curiosity grows insatiable.

What if Gaia
is just another name
for Holy Spirit?

And Holy Spirit
was just another KingJames name
for Spiritus Mundi
of Greek nondualistic nature-spirit mystics
speaking with Rabbinical scholars
over two thousand years ago,
while Jesus listened?

What if a post-millennial
Second Transitional Coming
of Indra’s NetZero Polyphonic Age
was another way of feeling
CoMessianic Sacred Becoming
one Body of continuously Holy EnSpiriting Christendom.

Christ
as ethological reason
for CoMessianic Advent Seasons
gifting grace forward
through Matriarchal Gaian Mundi EnSpiritus.

 

Any good Jewish son,
in historical times and languages of Jesus
the Nazarene,
would know,
If a question of authentic interpretation of teaching,
of Original Intent
of a divine law or teaching,
a nature-spirit rule,
such as a WinWin Golden MultiCulturing Rule,
were to healthy co-arise,
It is a matter of unchanging exegetically orthodox Tradition,
that discerning authorities
turn to Rabbinical lines of the Teacher
in focal point of historical-cultural study.

It might, then, be important to Jesus the Nazarene evangelists
pf truly good ecopolitical news,
to remember Greek nature-mystic nondual philosophies
embraced by pre-industrialized,
AgrarianCentric Gaian EcoSystemic Philosophers
of natural-spiritual polypathic wisdom,

Listening and watching MotherEarth’s
spiraling Win-Win revolutions
and Win-Lose LeftBrain reactionary over-investment
in retributive justice
against egocentric hubris,
and older root degenerative messages

Medicine and Sickness

Medicine and sickness satisfy each other.
MotherEarth is medicine.
Where do you find yourself?
Zen Master Yunmen
China, 800s

Therapy and trauma require each other.
Ecological Earth is nature-spirit therapy.
Where and how
and when
and what
and why
and whom do you traumatize
with small-ego identifying Self?

You cannot resolve dissonance
with traumatic thinking and feeling
and competitive Win-Lose policy making
and economic exchanges
causing natural-spiritual anti-cooperative problems.

You can solve problems
with therapeutically inclusive planning
and ownership
and mutually grateful consciousness,
cognitive/affective therapies
for Win-Win overpowering Win-Lose past trauma.

At what point does therapeutic integrity
become headed toward traumatic disintegration,
more cognitive-affective dissonance
than coherence,
transparency,
safe vulnerability,
rather than depressing
this unlabeled suppression
of integrity our bicameral selves,

Medicine for all Earth’s Tribes,
for restoring virgin forests
and pure oceans,
seas,
lakes,
societies,
cultures,
rivers,
streams,
root ego/ecosystems?

Before he was embraced
by his Democratic Party,
Senator Obama
not yet nominated for U.S. CEO
wrote about political compromise
as contrasted with spiritual integrity.
He quotes Benjamin Franklin,

“I would rather have it said,
He lived usefully,
than,
He died rich.”

The difference between living spiritual integrity
and Business As Usual
rich but dying Trumpism,
as Franklin and Obama see
healthy usefulness,
is something too valuable
to be bought and sold-out for;
While Trumpism
has no eyes to discern
this difference between health and wealth,
between loyal integrity of mutual Win-Win cooperation
and hoarding excessive riches
and influence
against future Win-Lose competitions.

Antagonistic plutocrats,
including zealous evangelical supremacists
filled with religiosity of doctrines and words
and empty of spirituality
informed by personal experience and consciousness,
measure integrity
by buying and selling their compromised competition values,
while a truly integrated democratic disciple of integrity
of healthy usefulness,
uses cooperatively healthy v. pathologically competitive
to measure different Tipping Points
between positive and negative values,
like hoarding,
and other monoculturing supremacist
negative tendencies.

If I were an Obama Foundation,
I would gather private and public foundations
and community organizer Allies,
to support indigenously owned openings
of cooperative MotherEarth Cafes,
where homeless and malnourished and criminalized
and victimized
and ostracized
would gather in PeaceCircles
to read our poetry,
to dance our cooperative rhythms and cycles,
to single our gospel anthems
to feed on and breathe and absorb organic nurture
of and for Audacious Hope,
to learn to play smarter ecopolitical Win-Win games
of healthy integrity.

MotherEarth Cafes across these Uniting States
hosting local Democratic Parties
for their open microphone meetings,
setting Town Meeting Agendas,
PermaCulturing Designs for ReStoring Peace and Justice,
in cooperation with Republican Committees
and Libertarian Committees
and Green Committees
and Rainbow Committees
and Feminist Committees
and OrganicGardening Committees
and any integrative cooperative ecopolitical party
who bothers to show up
sharing this belief
in healthy usefulness
for measuring authentically wealthy values
and pathologically disintegrative disvalues.

To contain anything
is to exclude something,
Whether we speak of our interdependent Universes
or our therapeutic medicines,
ZeroSum
Not-ZeroSum
and Not (Not ZeroSum).

Therapy and trauma invite and engage each other.
Ecological Earth is nature-spirit therapy.
Where and how do you continue traumatic
degeneration stories?
And why?

Telling Stories

While there is no story at all
unless it has at least two sides,
when it comes to ego’s narrative lines
and epic paragraphs,
we have great difficulty in casting ourselves
as other than a one-sided protagonist story,
which others might see as including too much self-indulgent glory.

Winona LaDuke
tells a worship story of the Anishinaabe
defending their sacred home
with support from the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,
against further mining investments of commodifying Earth antagonists,
represented by the State of Michigan.

This story is about copper mining investors
against people who worship Earth
as sacred Habitat,
Elders of one EarthTribe extending family,
across species,
and back across first dawn of Time.

You have already guessed who is winning.

Why is that?
The quality of our spiritual and ecologically healthy lives
depends on questions
challenging competitive one-sided empowerment assumptions.

But, you are right, I suspect,
if you guessed that both sides are losing.

The RepublicanRuling White evangelical Christian
State of Michigan
ruled against the Anishinaabe
and against their own sacred Scripture
and spiritual experience.
Water and land, they say,
cannot be sacred,
cannot have spiritual development significance
and deep and rich and wide meaning
because a protected place of worship
must be inside a building.

I don’t have a PhD in King James Bible Studies,
but I do have a Master of Divinity degree
from a duly licensed
and officially accredited Christian seminary
in the U.S.
and I’m fairly sure I remember
Christian Worship takes place,
rather uniquely,
in human hearts and minds and bodies,
wherever they might happen to be located
in space and time,
inside, maybe, but, for many,
preferably outside.
Most of the history in the Bible
is outside worship history.

Surely gardens were Eden’s first cathedrals.
Why would the State of Michigan pretend otherwise?

Why would KingJames Bible thumpers
and HellFire prophets,
patriarchal evangelists
and patriotic disciples of God’s omnipresent Love
allow their regulators and legislators
and executives,
acting in their HolyScriptures name,
tolerate such a clear misrepresentation of worship
as taught and lived by JesusChrist,
pretty much outside
and especially sweating blood in gardens
and walking on sacred water?

Why accept such an absurd misconception of worship
without economic or political
or personal or vulnerable question
this is patently absurd one-sided stealing
for money-making redistribution purposes
from spiritually rich to feed toxic desecration
to all residents of Michigan
and Lake Superior
and Turtle Island.

Absurd to confine worship indoors
to anyone
from anywhere
who has had the natural-spiritual experience
of being born
from any sacred matriotic womb
of God’s EarthTribes.

Intolerable rape of Truth
to any healthy Christian
with opportunities
to worship outdoors
while reading Psalms
and Proverbs
and natural-spiritual Sacred Parables
about harvesting grace
planted in seeds of divine gratuity.

What is truly healthy faith
within our buildings of worship
is merely a pale reflection
of truly spiritual experience
derived long before we built buildings
as defensive shelters
against sacred elements
of MotherEarth.

I have known authentically patriotic Christians
to find more freedom worshiping God
on sacred rocks
born of spirited Lake Superiors
as compared to claustrophobia while boxed up inside
binding fear and threat constraints
of evangelically booming buildings
and fundamental absence of spiritual discernment constraints.

Worship, like Wonder,
looks for God’s ReStorative Justice and Peace,
to let go of stuckness
in Retributive Vengeance is DivinePower
over Lake Superior commodification issues
about who and what and where
is most biblically saved
after God’s Word
has spoken first and last outdoor spiritual experiences,
voices of Earth’s sacred natures
and divinely-inspired Great Spirits.
