Gospel Rewrites

I think, and sometimes fear,
we have two ways, maybe more,
to read the four holy gospels,
and any sacred scripture,
and any regeneration/degeneration story
of creative tension,
win/win sweet spot future aspirations
midst win/lose historic raw spots
of past experience.

We can read Earth’s inspired articulations
as a book of spiritually correct answers,
removed from complex historical-cultural context
in a move toward fundamentally correct creed development
for moral
and political
and economic
and ecological correctness.

we can listen for Earth’s expirations
and inspirations,
reading and listening to naturally spiritual correcting questions,
embedded in universal historical
and uniting multicultural content
of fundamentally healthy development
for resiliently robust climates
and cultures,
timeless times of spiraling revolutionary win/win
ego/eco-logical balance corrections.

If we too readily approach sacred scripture for morally correct answers,
we are likely to forget
divine purpose seeks better,
more inclusive,
courageous and curious health questions.



Following Our Rules

In our Sharing Circles
we have a ground rule
to share a one speaker at a time floor
and unitarian silent listening support

And rules to not verbally share uninvited commentary
agreements or disagreements
during, and after,
this formalized Circle.

Speakers are invited to share from experience only,
not from someone else’s story,
experiential and/or theoretical,
parental and/or academic,
personal and/or professional.

This is a Closed Circle
of verbal communications,
a rhetorically autonomous inside job
only silently noting our egalitarian
side by sideness
of authority


Silent Passion…

If we are a composition,
we enter an historic symphony of solo voices
implicitly singing our universality
experiencing time’s nurturing
and severing qualities
and relentlessly insufficient quantity,
except when anyone else is speaking
business as too coldly
or too warmly

In our Reading Circles
our implicit ground rule culture differs
more in favor of the spontaneous spoken word,
this good news,
and bad fake news,
gospel we scribe together,

Usually one voice leading
a sustained melodic theme,
sometimes harmonic and splendid,
sometimes dissonant and diminished,
inviting in compassionate responses,
major and minor,
listening for counter-melodies,
for analogies
curious oxymorons,
outrageous internal pun fun,
and maybe the occasional reason,
held with soft determination
and not hard determinism.

Participants are invited to share
harmonic voices of MeToo
and to gently question why
my own dissonantly deviant choice
traps me in feeling detached,
less certain,
more certain we must be missing
some counter-balancing dirge of risk
and full-circle opportunities
for evolving peaceful revolutions.

We sing in Open Circle rounds
of theory meets experience
greets political philosophy
and primal attachment theory
applications to all relationships
ego logical and unlogical and anti-logical
and dis-passionate,
conscious and unconscious and suppressed consciousness
and more dispassion,
and ecological and ecosystemic
and healthy climate logical
for growing reading circles
into speaking and listening communion rounds
of timeless symphonic conversation,
dia-logos about favored/unflavored mythos.

Cooperative conveners
encourage each other
to speak from felt experience
of belief and disbelief
in some published teacher’s expression of experience
with timeless patience and time-heavy impatience,
of joy and sorrow,
courage and curiosity,
compassion and dispassion,
intimacy and repulsion,
about some subject’s story,

Where it does and does not meet our own time
chosen and not chosen
political and personal
economic and ecological
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
regressive and progressive
inhaled and exhaled
patriarchal and matriarchal
competitive and cooperative
vulnerable and transparent
longing and belonging

New yet old
wealthy when healthy,
democratic when not kleptocratic,
integral when not fragmenting,
unitarian when not too universally closed
to further sacred gospel co-inspirations,

Timeless unity
yet eternal open university,

Secure rounds
yet within freeing surrounds,

Cultural sweet spots
within historic raw plots.


Peaceful Revolutions

as we shall see
is inevitably
win/win felt revolutionary resonant
more powerfully experienced
than win/lose evolution
thought theoretically resilient.

Technology of YangNature,
like ecology of sacred YinNurture
begins with regenerative secular tools
for Yang’s original EarthPatriotic intentions

As seen and felt
in seasonal choreography,

Economies of nutrition tales
and transactional double-boundary strings
of double-binding attachment
to win/win multicultural health outcomes

And ecofeminist re-attaching holistic circle cords
whisper epic revolutionary rhetorical events,

Life song evolution stories
of unchoreographed spontaneity,
win/win tools for freedom
to dance with yin-spirit
more graceful integrity
than marching monoculturally
in service of LordMaster
autonomous, so venomous,

Feminist theologians,
like ecologicians,
urge us to refrain from devolutionary lose/lose narratives
apocalyptically dominating our sacred win/win climate view.

We seem,
at our optimistic best,
ambivalently capable
of re-creating our own leftbrain dominant
technocentrically industrious destruction
of Earth’s original organic multicultural operations,

Cooperative muses of sound,
tasting secular health without
sacred wealth within

ReMembering raw spot pathology events
with competitive distrust
and divestment,

SelfRighteously justifying our weapons
for severing nature’s healthy future
from spirit’s robust wealthy past
sweet spot renaissance complexities
musically resonant history
ecologically resilient,

LeftBrain dominant
worshiping RightBrain pre-eminent
original EarthMother creolization,
co-acclimating tool
for transubstantiating
individuation of Yang/Yin identity balance
double-binding co-perseverance,
ego/eco-therapeutic non-weapons
for true wealth success
worshiping beauty of Earth’s historic PeaceMuse

Dissonant music recreates
our own leftbrain dominant destroyer
of multiculturally robust outcomes
now evolving into a radically different left/right harmonic creature
we have no reason to fear
or suspect of becoming any relationship less than a healthy climate
of resilient wealth.

Our popular leftbrain dominant monoculture
evolves a merely technological hubris march
toward co-disempowering astronomical Testosterone,

Win/Lose ZeroSum geometrically predicting
our losing climate pathology future
unable to neuro-musicologically accept
cooperative win/win harmonic responsibility
for natural/spiritual symphonic
ecosystemic healthy wealth

By not over-investing
in leftbrain technologically entertaining
explosive adventure myths
and apocalyptic histories,

Prophecies born of right-wing Rapture anxieties
taking perverse escapist pleasure
nihilistically distracting our embodied ego-centers
with anti-musical fascist portrayals
of our LoseLeft v LoseRight powerlessness,
naked organic humanity v MotherEarth’s climate revenge,

v EarthMothers freely choosing to prey upon their own resiliently nurturing wombs,

of freedom to choose win/win
healthy climate pre-revolutionary lives
with more bilaterally balancing harmonies
favoring resilient health/wealth
perfect third bicameral choice
of rhetorical voice
her with his co-passionate fertile story
revolutionarily un-weaponable.

PolyNomially healthy Muses
co-revolving sweet spot
not not
PolyPhonically resonant,
rich Music.

Mystery of internal music history,
like communal external ecology,
grows inevitably
win/win revolutionary
when more powerfully tooled multiculturally
than weaponed win/lose
dissonantly evolutionary.


Bank in Trust CoInvestors

In cooperative detective work,
including Earth scientific research,
we are told to follow the money
much more often
than feeling invited
to follow the nutritional health investors
and the toxic pathology attackers

Whether our trail is a criminal
or political
economic impassioned journey
of discovery.

In healing arts and role play,
we are more often invited
to find nutritional root systems
consuming nutrients
to support an organic win/win ego-system
within Earth’s ecosystemic web
of original polyculturing health intention.

Either our technological win/lose economy
or an alternative ecological win/win evolutionary model
begins with all consuming positive creation values
to recreate healthy vocations
and climax each season of co-arising attachment
each co-acclimating day
and each market quarterly report

Earth’s internal holistic win/win production pattern
and our corresponding nutrition nurturing rhythms
are framed as positive co-relationship,
ego/eco-systemic co-acclimation
of long-term health/wealth trends

Within Earth’s external multiculturing ages
of slow-grown
and re-cyclical
spiraling open systemic
polyculturing wealth development
designed to serve future consumer/producer balancers
of optimal nutrient-harmonic values,

From consumer wealth
of Earth-centric cravings
through producer health
of bilaterally informed
cooperative ego-centric conservation conversations

Win/Win dipolar co-arising positive value communication networks,
garden spaces for sacred vocations,
organic family farms,
global multicultural communities
enjoy cultures of win/win ThereThen/HereNow health intention,
cooperatively owned
and eco/ego-managed.

To cynically choose, instead,
to worship our Western white male privileged
leftbrain dominant
anti-democratic capital monopoly,

To prefer, instead,
win/lose anti-revolutionary market games
of war
and Attachment Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
and Lazy-X Either/Or thinking
and win/lose feeling fundamentalistic
anti-mystic undetectived rage,
feels increasingly climate threatening
for wealthy win/win nutritional extended-family values.

Legal win/lose punishing governing structures
and capital-win/lose investment networks
together reinforce deconstruction
of organically cooperative networks
recomposing traditional win/win evolutionary values
not inviting overpowering ecopolitical monocultures
of climate pathology denialism,
industrial over-consumer-induced blindness,
dispirited senselessness,
neurologically disconnected genocide

In a technological
industrial monoculturing patriarchal system,
root democratic consumers
become replaceable tools
disposable win/lose-acclimated under-achievers
in what might have been a positive value-rooted
secular consumer/sacred producer
ego/eco-passionate win/win cooperative

Tocqueville Talk

Patrick Deneen follows Tocqueville
speaking of risks to Western liberal democratic experiments,
great personal enlightenment adventures
seldom calm within a federating kettle
of competing selected fish,
and usually not cooperatively resilient
for health optimization
of local community peaceful resonant wealth.

In Tocqueville’s time and place,
liberal democracy evolved from feudal win/lose pre-industrial aristocracy
overpowering non-elite serfs, and lesser natural organic beings,
royal kleptocrats,
universal white privileged patriarchs
by right of land and title inheritance
supported by Divine Might Makes Right
evolutionary theologies.

As Deneen liberally repeats,
capital-invested democratic consumer legitimacy
to cooperatively contract individually manifest
humane superior spiritualized dignity
is rooted in monocultural presentism,
fragmenting mono-generational cultural contracts
with multi-regenerational fields
and nutritional species
mellow meadows
robust mountains
and calm river valleys.

Where Divine covenants
signed, sealed, and delivered
to predator Aristocrats
were rooted in creeds
Divinely inspired scriptures,
holy creation stories
sacred pre-historic memories,
usually of patriarchal governors
and their court-appointed entertainers,
fire-circle dancers
loyal soldiers
and oral legend-tellers,

Presentism fragments intergenerational liturgical-nutritional commitments,
argues Tocqueville,
repeats Deneen.

Yet liberal love integrates compassion
for all Earth’s regenerative/degenerative species
verbally historic and non-verbally pre-historic
patriarchal and matriarchal
deduced and induced
Divine EarthMother co-passion
multiculturally articulate co-enlightenment covenants
through cooperative win/win listening Time

Sacredly interdependent
traditionally nondual resilience
of Taoistic co-relational covenants

Indigenously spiraling
precessive/recessive iconic
dialogical EarthTime’s win/win sanctuary, ergodic.

Patrick Deneen follows Tocqueville
speaking of risks
and appositionally implied opportunities
for Western/Eastern liberal democratic experiments,
great personal North/South enlightenment adventures
seldom calm within a federating creolizing kettle
of competing win/lose
yet cooperatively win/win selected fish
swimming through climate surfing risks.


Through Thick and Thin

There are no walls
too thick to complete absorbing hate.

We knit together no fragile win/win webs
of interdependent cooperativity
too thin to resiliently invite
timelessly emergent love.

I have no thoughts
too thick to withstand win/lose business as usual
evolutionary theories

And no feelings too vaporously slender
too thin to compassionately invite health
for timelessly emergent climates,
in and out
spirit yinning and nature yanged
holy and yet physically whole
open ecosystemic
just right EarthWomb

Right both/and and Left either/or

Changing Thought Systems

It is known throughout Earth’s anonymous
unanimous Commons,
Systems are hard to change.

The more macro-competitive,
The more difficult of all conversion stories

Over pernicious decades,
We tend to add “isms”
to pathological ends
of these global systemic issues.

This polyculturalistic/multiculturalism suffix,
negative appendage,
suggests a pejorative problem
of systemistic stuckness,
where once may have lived
a potential for positive
polypathic and polyphonic change
toward Earth’s greener,
more flexible,

Ism labels warn of possible toxic contents
including racism,
of course,
and white privileged patriarchalism.

These two appear to be old friends,
as do colonialism
and Catholicism
and globalism
and monotheism,
often hiding diverse and sundry mob-rule
in sinister shapes
of secular poly-tickle-listic hyphenated atheism.

Other systemic cousins
on my networking mind
are liberalism
and capitalism
and communism
and socialism
and fundamentalism
and dualism,
separating spiritual development opportunities
from natural undevelopment risks.

Sometimes, though,
usually when I am not in crisis
but feeling emotionally vulnerable anyway,
I wonder if these impenetrable global
and nationalistic
systemic issues could call out
and in
for healthier cooperative thinking.

Not a direct assault on,
most certainly not a war against,
exterior competing systems,
But a more indirect dialogue
inviting a change in individual
and familial
and indigenous communal thinking
about win/win systems.

This cooperative bilateral thinking
scientists have labeled systemic thinking
and multicultural artists have seen and heard
smelled and tasted
touched and felt
sung and danced
as Earth ecosystemic feeling of interdependent living

integral journeys toward global meta-systemic utopia,
where naturally perfect systems thinking
syncs with
spiritually pure communion feeling.

For example,
patriarchalism becomes,
in this explicit in-between double-bounded way,
not only a chronic risk to Earth’s survival
but also an immediate everyday opportunity
to imagine aloud,
to touch with voice and hand,
to walk boldly, sometimes baldly, with feet and mind

Into a ZeroCore place
where two or more overpowering competitive Yangisms
might change evolutionary to revolutionary directions,

Directions revolutionary to evolutionary change might
grow toward one or less
matriarchal cooperative ZeroZone
of Yinistic integrity
for rebirthing regenerational
resonant happiness,
healthier nests,
wealthier eggs,

Synergetic seeds, all about potentiating possibilities
bilateral-fractal DNA discernment systems
thinking about what we are more health-cooperatively feeling

Change for wealthier harmonic becoming ecofeminist
less patriarchal,
so more yang-enthusiastically matriarchal.

Within these boundaries of vulnerable dialogue,
what have appeared to be static constipationisms,
mutual opportunistic issues,
also feel unveiled yin-flow nutritionistic
toward cooperatively appositional opportunities
to feel internal spiritual transactions,

into natural potentialistic,
not so much transcendently spiritualized isms,

Instead, macro-global systems
of Yang’s golden meta-health network
polypaths traveled,
Polyphonically felt absence
of perennially unfree spiritualisms,
primarily and primally due to a collective change of nutritional thinking
in systems growing healthier.

Cooperatively realistic lives
more powerful than competitive unreal estateisms,
acquired ownership of ismic properties
impregnably fragmented plots
and states of suspiciously marginal boundaries

By left-brain dominant apartheid thoughts
overpowering right-brain co-prominent organic nurture-systems
touching realistic baptismal waters plenty warm
and not yet boiling over power.

More transystemically webbed
natural spirits
than monoculturally walled

Nature against
co-passioned spirits
with ecological/theological integrity
changing meta-thought systems
felt as holistic networks for well-being.
