Feeling is Believing

To feel is to believe
without reason.
To realize is to believe
with reason.

To feel is to believe
in a spiritual inside touch,
surprising humor
torrential flood
without conscious reason.

To realize is to believe
in my natural inside reach,
surprising good and bad subconscious humors,
rumors,
tumors,
torrential potential soul flood,
with both ecological-left secular
and theological-right sacred reasons
for healthy v pathological seasons
of life,
love,
lush subclimates of harmonic compassion.

Faith in Politics

Faith in politics is not popular.
Other than optimistic civics teachers
and elected office holders,
faith feels troublesome
when mixed with social empowerment
over Others.

“Others” holds and hides broad diversity:
children
women
people of color
prisoners
slaves
indentured servants
pets
cattle
sheep
farms
plantations
ranches
watersheds
melting ice caps
rising sea levels
polluted air
worn out topsoil
sewage disposal and highway and military systems
industrial production and consumption and devolutions…

Good faith in power
is faithful to power WITH Others,
WITH win/win co-aspirations,
and ego/eco-active non-ZeroSum hope
for health increasing more
openly contagious co-integrity.

Bad faith in power
builds reasons to justify
power against and over Others,
with win/lose evolutionary ZeroSum assumptions
about economic closed entropic-trending systems
currently favoring Western white privilege.

The faith

[belief
reason
emotional and cognitive intelligence
left-brain win/win active hope
and right-brain felt love, compassion, integrity, co-empathy]

of Messiahs

[and Bodhisattva PeaceCorp Warriors, global mustard seed planters,
Hiawathas and Renewable Energy (inside and out) Advocates,
and Ancient EcoFeminist Wisdom Healers]

is rooted in early cooperative intent
to push together toward light

[integral harmony singing Voices of Other
health
mutual empowerment
happy, inviting climate therapy
potential for personal
and global
integrity].

Good faith in politics
seeds active hope
for multicultural empowerment,
co-passioned love for synergetic health
as also true organic wealth.

Faith in healthy empowerment
is as original

[seminal
ZeroZone right-brain prominent
sacred
sacramental
integral
creative
rebirthing]

as our first pilgrimage
from EarthMother’s womb
into this timeless light
of healthy passage
into interdependent passions
yet including autonomous
re-creative tension
promulgating win/win revolutionary intent.

Healthy intent
to see with both eyes equally

[curiously
courageously
secularly Left-Either/Or
and sacredly Right-Both/And
cooperatively win/win
nutritionally strategic]

To hear
both future right-healthed
multicultures
and past left-wealthed
polycultures
listening with
and then speaking up and out for organic
Faith in health-power
multipoly-pathic Voices

Still wise enough
to avoid monopolizing integrity’s Light.

Nature Preserves

I don’t know many people so urbanized
they would not prefer a nature preserve
and star light
for neighbors, day and night,
over a new developed suburbanization.

Not too many people smile
when they drive by a familiar farm
with woodlands,
now scraped and scaped,
graveled and turfed,
cut down and razed with concrete foundations,
ready for more humans
not preserving natural relations
with more diverse species.

Nature preserves
promote both natural and spiritual reserves.

External nature preservation
emotionally walks
senses
feels and smells and touches
internal spiritual reserves,
sanctuary,
sacred habitat.

Most of us still cherish
natural multicultural places
as also spiritual polyphonic spaces
to visit,
know as cherished neighbors.

Few of us still live and love
as residents among sacramental traces
of past Paradise.

Even if right-brain’s emotional integrity of Earth sensed
as an interdependent matriarchal reservation
for restoring justice
through multicultural preserves
for inclusively democratic peace
has atrophied
to prefer the smell of asphalt
and chemically treated turf,

Together,
we can still remember
sacred ecological relationships,
glowing star lit nights,
cherished campfire habitats
following only DNA’s inspired multicultural health
as spirited happiness
instructions.

Natural wisdom
that what is good,
even for autonomous ego-development,
is also healthy
for sacred Nature’s preservation,
including Humane Places,
natural
sacramental,
emotionally and cognitively intelligent
Reservations

about what is healthy progress
and what is impoverishing regress.

Often,
in left-brain dominant prose,
We invest capitalized empowerment intention
investment in unnatural domesticated places,
re-nouns and pro-nouns more Proper,
speaking of independent ego-autonomy’s
drive-by missions,

And,
we fail to naturally reserve more capitalization
for what feeds our Spiritual Integrity Preservation.

Love, Love, Love

Love, love, love.
Every needy thing’s about more
and better
love,

Unless you’re at a political rally.
Then we’re all about patriotic, patriotic, patriotic,
Or Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,
Although if we are not free
to feel patriotic or not so much,
then I suppose what is needed
is more Love, Love, Love.

More active compassion,
more listening mindfulness,
more global, if not universal, consciousness,
more robust and resilient relationships
with co-migrant populations,
plants,
planet.

More, more, more
Love, love, love…

Why do we multiculturally long for secular love
and sacred grace
and win/win karma,
yet speak
and endlessly sing
for such long-winded
and short-winged cooperative relationships?

While investing so little time listening
to him
and her
and competitive/cooperative him/her,
as Left makes Right loves Left
full-circle again.

Creator God speaking theological
and creation goddess listening ecological
EarthTribes in love with loving experience

Of and for healthy ego-
wealthy eco-relationships,
wise as also well-being compassions

Listening to, “Love, love, love”
co-investing every communing harmony
playing and working life
through deeper and wider
active listening for timeless love.

Mother’s Mother

My mother’s mother and I were very close.
We needed each other
in diversely validating ways.

She needed to know
experience
hear and see and feel and touch
a healthier love of mutual regard
than she felt she achieved
with any of her three daughters.

I needed to feel
I was some loved adult’s most significant event,
most vulnerable and transparent grace
for who I felt and knew I was
yet to gay become
without any need to change
what I could not internally rearrange.

When I was a senior in high school
this grandmother became sick with cancer
and depression,
mortal doubts and fear.

I knew this
not because I had visited her
but because my parents
and aunts
whispered their hopelessness
before repeatedly reminding me,
There is nothing I can do
to help her
or prepare myself
for such great loss,
perhaps less great,
more relief,
for them.

But they were wrong.
Wrong about my grandmother.
Wrong about me.
Wrong about us, together.

I knew her favorite hymns.
I was her favorite voice.
We needed no other instruments,
percussive or lyrical.
We had enough time
to revisit our music lessons,
Lyrics are tools for young friendship
Not weapons against old enemies.

Precious Lord
take my hand,
Lead me on
when I can’t stand.
I am tired,
I am weak,
I am worn.
Through these trials,
Through this storm,
Lead me on
Precious Lord.

And so we sang
and so I danced
and told her favorite story
of beds too hard,
of friends too soft,
and a child who sings just might

Of Earth too hot
and river beds too soft
and motherlands too cold
and us, now growing distant,
yet singing this last time
just right.

Communal Climate

Share with me,
if you could become so kind,
Which of all your lifetime actions
was not also a reaction?

Which thought
not also a polyphonic feeling
rethought
and stored in memory
across countless regenerations?

Share with me
if you would
and could
and should,
Which of your responses
feels more original
and healthy
and organic
and sacred,
and intimate,
naturally communicated
and spiritually experienced
passion.

Share with us,
if we could become communioned,
all our actions verbal and non-verbal,
rational and not irrational,
all our acquisitional quantity intentions
not not qualitative
win/win co-investing intent,
exponentially left dominant
yet incrementally right prominent,
revolutionary communal strength
and evolutionary tribal wisdom.

Share with me
if we could become communacting,
co-munerative unfractioned,
co-numeratively re-actioned

To share with future,
as past EarthTribe patriotic actors
symbolic
iconic capital dipolar valued
originally in cooperatively developed
left/right heading heads.

To share with me,
if time could become so mindful,
co-passioning ego/eco-metric activities
Earth double-bound geometric civilities
binomial
bilateral
bicameral,

If distancing left would be so kind
to intimately share with ElderRight sacred me,
Why absence of communication
is not neutral
for those who notice,
and those who miss,
and those who are glad of change
and those who also are sad
without healthy co-action
and polypathic
polyphonic resilient re-action,
pre-investment toward communion,
harmonic karma,
resonant grace,
co-passion,
resilient love,

To share with me,
if you could become so loved lover,
Which of all your lifetime actions
was not also egocentering
eco-passioning co-reaction,
creation,
recreation,

To share with us.

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.
