Migrant Souls

I currently conjoin with AllSouls,
a sacred green communion of saints
and sometimes sinners.

A few live together,
couples,
extending families
reaching multiculturally out
through AllSoul roots
regenerating pasts,
transforming future generations
now repressed by fear of global climate pathology
as thick and toxic
as lose/lose ecopolitical nihilistic soup,
thin survivalist Rapture-gruel,
paranoid hope in Hail Mary magic.

Most Souls live apart
but actively search for significant others
from within communal enculturing walls,
this Green Sanctuary
of compassionate win/win hope.

Some find just one significant spiritual/natural nondualistic Other.
Others find more.
A few have, to date, found none
within
because already over-invested,
or just right and left infested,
in Souls without this Green Sanctuary cooperative
of climate health communities.

We share an interdependent norm
inviting personal restraint
against choosing too many Significant Others,
lest their significance to you
dissipate into complex insignificance,
chaotic lack of forward co-passions,
over-scheduled communion communication events,
constant sacred/secular communal celebrations
of nonduaistic dual muses,
constantly talking and listening to insiderunonvoices

While outside significant other voices
continue Earth’s seasonal celebrations
without our even AllSouls noticing
appreciating
inviting
hosting
serving Significant OtherSouls.

This year
we are planning to rebuild our Green Sanctuary.
During this reconstruction time,
somewhere between forty years
and forty days,
we will become a migrant people again,
seeking returns to our multicultural communion roots.

Some Souls will stay with AME cousins.
Some will hang out in Green Synagogues
and Temples
and Mosques
and Native FireCircles.

A few,
more prophetically inclined,
will revisist uncomfortable left-brain dominant Fundamentalists
who barely trust even God to Father
an understudied and unserved Goddess EarthMother.

Evangelists still claiming God cannot be both transcendently omnipotent
unchanging Yang
and yet intimately fluid ecofeminist omnipresent
compassionate yinternal Holonic Spirit
of left with right brain interdependent sacred win/win Souls
for healing growing left-brain climate pathological runawayvoices,

Glutted with punishing trends,
sins of power-lust Fathers
inflicting absence of sacred significant Other
future compassionate mothers and dads
restoring great-grandchildren health,
failing to thrive
as truly Christian communions,
Souls of and for rapturous Green Compassion.

During this multicultural migrant Time,
we will regather on Sunday afternoons
to plan how we will interfaith heal our multiculturing divisions
to restore our polypathic multiplications
of healthy watered fish
and wealthy slow-raising bread
kneading and healing past absence
of significant Other green commmunions
with active win/win designs for personal
familial
communal
local subclimates of ego/ecotherapeutic
global AllSoul Sanctuary,

Freshly returned
from migrant communions
with our interfaith healthy
and significant OtherSouls.

Fundamentalist Compassion

What is dogmatically
unchangingly fundamental to Christianity,
and to all win/win positive faith systems,
is certainly not capitalism’s ZeroSum economic assumptions
in which winner god takes all
from loser satan.

But, what is fundamental compassion’s truth
is profoundly sacred
globally open-systemic theology
of HolySpirit co-passion
eco-compassion could multiculturally become
integrity’s great transitioning potential
healthiest wisdom wealth.

What is ecstatically changing
deep and wide
to learn positive win/win bicameral neuropsychology
is another ecologically co-passionate
systematic re-creation theology.

If you have read
Iain McGilchrist’s
“The Master and his Emissary:
The Divided Brain and the [Un]Making of the Western World”
or
Julian Jaynes’
“The Origin of Consciousness
in the Breakdown
of the Bicameral Mind”
or
Edward DeBono’s “[Bi]Lateral Thinking”
or
Robert Norton and David Benders
“Communication and Consequences:
[Natural/Spiritual] Laws of Interaction”
or
Rob Brezny’s
“Pronoia is the Antidote to Paranoia”
preferably more simultaneously
than sequentially,

Does your experience while reading feel anything like?…

Euphoric self/other-perpetuating climax
double-boundary refining
binomial self/other co-passioning
courageous and curious discovery

Uncovering within Earth’s natural/spiritual recovery,
explicating/implicating unfolding
yang/yintegral
ego/ecological balancing
virtuous win/win verbing un-renouned
explicate/implicate circles
of effluent ecofeminist/affluent ego-patriarchal
subjective/historical enculturing objectives
healthiest optimizing wealth.

If so,
did you happen to notice
whether or not, or something in-between,
this integral/holonic perceptual frame
was more cognitive/affective confluent with THC?

If so,
did your mindbody seem to be producing/consuming
a self/other-perpetuating oxytonic flush/rush?

If so,
have your friends/family become more opently curious
about your newish win/win integrity
as contrasted with your earlier unreformed
fundamentally competitive win/lose evolutionary theories
rooted in lose/lose ultimate ego-centric mortal fears
and angers
and devilish mortal self-hatred?

As expressed in cognitive/affective chronically stressed voices
and depression
and emotionally disassociated messages
about left-brain courage
and right-brain curiosity,
Yang awesome strength
and Yin integrity’s potential wonder

To re-consider all the unfolding left-brain facts
of Earth’s unraveling lose/lose trends,
And then push through to win/win ecofeminist matriarchal joy
in polypathic
polyphonic
polynomial paths

As EarthMother’s Way
fills each ego-balancing day
and eco-polyphonic night
with co-polypathic
polynomiaLeft
echoes not-not bilaterally affective
multi-enculturing Right.

Nothing Is Not Lost

Hear unsilenced hope here,
Nothing is not lost.

Hopelessness is the enemy
of justice.

Music resounds appositionally
against fear.

Anthems rise solidarity
within eco-righteous anger.

Praise conserves liberal motion.

Emotion co-arises dipolar cognitive/affective passions.

Climate pathology may not become
the responsibility of white privilege.
Yet, healthy climates may heal
both our oppression of Earth’s sacred integrity
and our white privileged victimizations.

Wealthy multicultural opportunities
re-present risks for and of further monoculturing fragmentation
apartheid
disassociations
conserving silos
of hopelessly unfree silence.

This is our liberal conserving health agenda,
Earth wealth
cooperatively inclusive,
interdependently webbed.

We know we are conservatively listening win/win leaders
when liberally correct agendas
are also Earth-centered conservational anthems
singing courageous praise
against the fake win/lose face
of either totalitarian power
or universal fear.

Active hope
is the ally
of Earth’s great restoring justice
for all,
they and we
eco and ego
yin and yang
universal health and unitarian wealth.

If all faith speaks with liberal political correctness,
so too
all hope erupts from silent win/win conserving power
noticing risks of disempowering silence
missing opportunities for re-empowering healthy natural wealth
between all souls
among all soils
all fearful angry lynching
all courageous songs unflinching.

Music heals through wind and water carried
keening
secular mundane hate
become sacred epic texts
re-formed ego-wind with eco-water
singing unsilenced sorrow.

Hear hope here.
Nothing is not lost
through complacent silence.

SuperIntentional Perry

I know you were intending
to facilitate an adult faith formation
discernment process
appropriately resonant for AllSouls,
here today
lingering tomorrow
and reborn memories of yesterday,

Then this process seemed to disappear,
Which seems curiously queer,

So, I am wondering if it is too late
to volunteer
to help facilitate
an Integral Permaculture Design
process
toward holistic, and interdependent,
universal and unitarian
Faithful Healthy-Wealth Formation,

A searching integrity process
designed to regenerate co-equal
health and faithful climate therapists
for transparent and vulnerable indoor places
and outdoor non-violent communicating spaces
to grow green resilience inside/outside together
ego/eco-therapeutically.

If I might help
don’t hesitate,

Warmly,

Gerald O Dillenbeck, MDiv, MPA,

ReGenerating 2020 Hope

I once heard,
Hope is what can positively happen
after listening to all the realistic facts
and then continuing in good faith anyway.

I also heard,
Cynicism about others,
like narcissism about oneself,
is sadly generative,
expansively powerful,
contagious

Just as hope about others
and compassion with oneself
are happily generative,
exponentially win/win contagious.

Both negative and positive attitudes are generative,
but hope is cooperatively regenerative
while external cynicism,
like internal narcissism,
like ecopolitical fascism,
is degenerative,
competitively contagious,
inviting a long, slow, painful
lose/lose death.

Cynicism flirts with Lose/Lose outcomes
projections
often escalated by competing
“If you think that’s horrible enough,
listen to this terrifying
or merely titillating tale…”

Despite our broken
wounded
depressing cynically competing natures
and narcissistic nurtures
of Business As Usual stories of competing
capital-hoarding ego-centrism,
Active 2020 hope looks for WinLeft/WinRight options,
plans,
eco-operatively reassociating
mutual ego-healing
across all multicultural
and polypathic
non-sectarian
good-faith systems,
cooperatively-owned nutritional networks.

Cynicism projects Earth’s LoseLose demise.
Scepticism questions, doubts, humanity’s WinLose economy
could ever become a long-term healthy trajectory.
Optimism actively hopes a short-term investment
in egocentric deflation, dis-investment, detachment
will lead to long-term Lose to Win
healthier egocentric evolution
some other climate darkening day.

WinWin optimization
cooperatively goodfaiths (gospels), mentor
models short-term through long-term compassionate ecstasy
restoring peace and holistic justice

Green sanctuary 2020 left/right
yang/yin
universal/unitarian (not fragmentarian) revolutions,
regeneration/degeneration options
every bicameral day
every binomial ego/eco-where
with every one
regathering bilateral interior-beliefs
compassioning exterior-behavior.

Regenerate hope is what happens
after listening to all the RealTalk
co-operating healthy passions
any way
any time
any where
everyday.

The Neighbor’s Wife

He’s been struggling with depression,
She said, so then have I.

It’s our bad news
that competing depressions
breed more contagiously
than our cooperative feeding happiness.

Yet our good news grows:
Depression and positive impression
are equally contagious passions
pastimes
eruptions into changing flowstreams of consciousness,
evolving conscientiousness,
naked intention,
interdependent awareness,
enchantment and disenchanting stories,
natural causes spiriting effects causing co-acclimating affects,
positive and negative passions,
pressures,
impressions,
compression.

I’ve been struggling against his self-repression,
she said,
so then he worries about his oppressive powers
financial and political and emotional,
physical and mental.

He doesn’t hit me
or any sentient being
but scares me when he hits
and manhandles against his phone,
kicks against his car,
strikes against his walls and doors and windows,
his property he most interdependently cares about,
relies upon.

This chronic environment of fear,
seeing his violent anger
causes our climate anxiety
and a lack of safely transparent expression,
chronic non-vulnerable repression.

The difference between my suppressed fear feelings
of repression
and his depressed anger feelings,
threatening to disinvest oppression
despite his great attraction to Us,
is a real-talk difference
only if we both know
we are each free to affordably leave,
cut our future health-opportunity losses,
without threat of violent and impoverishing repercussions.

While a free Get Out Of Jail card
and a blinking Safe Exit sign
over our back doors
and front doors
and aside windows
are not much for sharing journeys toward active compassion,
co-operative wonder,
interactive awe,
mutual health and happiness,
prosperous food for mental fitness,
Yet neither is flood insurance
a sign of bad faith in safe and dry land
mutually affordable re-assurance.

Oppression
is aggressive repression
without freedom to exit

And ego repression
is eco-systemic depression
without mutual freedom to catch and re-catch compassion
with and for each faithful interdependent Other,
sentient and sensed as a safe alliance
for absorbing resonance

And practicing mutual reliance,
practicing re-alliance,
practicing integrity of positive contagious co-passions.

Negative depressions stem from lonely longing
origins internal and external,
As positive impressions
grow from practiced compassion,
Solidarity belonging and bred
within eco-cooperative fed
root nutritional systems,

Fitness energy for actively appreciating
each wounded and wounding Other,
including hims
and hers,
transparently discussing fist-vulnerable hands
and heads,
and stomping, kicking feet,
and bad-news phones
and unreliable cars
and imprisoning homes
and patriarchal supremacists

As if all lives
and interdependent relationships
mattered
for continuing depressive competitions
and for altering impressive cooperations.

PanTheism ReConsidered

Atheism,
without narcissistic patriarchally monocultural portfolio
but more matriarchally cooperative polycultural impassioned,
is not necessarily multiculturally anti-theistic.

Theistic
need not be an abbreviation for monotheistic rootedness,
but could remain androgenously agnostic
to include more widely pan-theistic
and more deeply suggest poly-theistic healthy wealth
nondualistic his/her-storied outcomes
strongly felt
and more flowingly thought
transparently and vulnerably outside
our own repressed RightMinds.
