Life Feels Easier

It feels easier.
That’s why,
or so she believes.

Why she associates death
and climate pathology
with fear of her ego’s eco-mortality
and vaguely remembered anxieties about enslavement;
living death to human identity,
if not all commodified Natures.

Yet, it feels harder
to associate death
with indentured spiritual servitude,
often confused with fundamentalist dogma,
evangelical demagoguery,
politically disempowering religiosity,

Assiduously associated with patriarchal colonization
and straight western white male privilege,
and left brain violently indenturing commodification,
renting human Ego minds
with individualized bodies,
uniquely felt spirits
with thoughtful,
living mortal natures

Associating freedom
with human potential
and at least divine acquiescence,
if not gratitude.

Freedom Requires Peace

Ecological relationship
forms theological and ego-logical minds,
both omnipresently transcendent
and intimately eco/ego-political;

Both enlightening
and empowering

Earth justice
from interdependent EarthTribe peace
toward cooperatively invested freedoms
for compassion
both right hemisphere inclusive feelings
and left hemisphere deductive thoughts,
reductive-inductive;

Both ecosystemic Beauty
and ego-recentering Truths;

Multiculturally co-passionate,
non-violently communal,
restoring theological peace
as ecologically balanced justice

Where life becomes peaceful medication
love is freedom’s EarthSoul meditation.

AntiChristian Trump

Communion does not approach dawn
to vilify our most public egotistic victims
and predators.

Who would it help
to dismiss, with terrifying labels,
iconic
reproductions of sacred history?

But, global legends
contain lessons
for our interdependent
deep cultural learning.

What is a Western Messiah,
an Eastern Bodhisattva?

A wise leader
who sacrifices personal health
safety
enlightenment
immediately transcendent empowerment,
on behalf of those left behind,
poor in spirit,
wounded in nature,
fractured in mind and body.

So, an AntiChrist
is self-serving,
a worshiper of mammon,
a capitalist pig,
if you prefer,
although this feels unfair
to the contented
peace-loving reputation
of healthy pigs.

An AntiChrist
would weigh the value
of personal
and corporate quarterly,
and annual,
and election term profits
more heavily
more selfishly
more anti-Christian
more anti-Islam
more anti-Buddha
more anti-peace
more anti-health
more anti-compassion
than the value of aging lives
most transparently vulnerable
to this post-millennial Virus.

No naturally healthy
and spiritually wealthy
and religious person,
whether disciple of Christ
or follower of Mohammed
or contemplative with Buddha
or ecofeminist as yin-faced Laotse,
could look
and listen
and feel
and think
with cooperative integrity
to discover restorative fruits
of the Holy Spirit
and/or indigenous HolyWind
in the Nationalist Republican
and narcissistic Capitalist Trump
administration

Competing against multicultural campaigns promoting
Love,
faithfulness to wealth of health,
hope for conserving Earth’s living safety,
gentleness,
kindness,
long-suffering patience,
goodness,
integrity,
meekness,
peaceful democratic compassion.

By our active love for Other,
for the immigrant,
the sinner,
the pagan,
for even those who are privileged
and intolerant supremacists
and bullies,
are we known as not AntiChrists.

None of us can prove
by salvific action
or fruitful compassionate deed
that we are redeemed Christians.

But all of us can disprove
by unhealthy degenerative divestments,
by selfish actions,
by pathological misdeeds,
by violent and intentionally misdirecting words,
that we are unredeemed AntiChrists;

Not that I believe Biden
and the not green and non-violent enough Democrats
are likely to invite,
much less multinationally enact,
the global healthy wealth Second Coming
of Earth’s peaceful rapture.

Health Addictions

Health brings freedom to live
intentionally
resplendently
maturely
resonantly
integrally
regeneratively
compassionately
resiliently
kindly.

Freedom is personal,
but also social,
political
but also economic,
ecological
but also theological.

Health requires freedom from addiction
to beliefs:

Some people are born to rule
and own Earth,
while others are born to be serfs
and slaves,
laborers
and frightened/angry addicts.

Some people are born
to be born again,
while others are born
to be unredeemed,
idol worshipers,
poor,
sinners.

Some straight males are born to be White
Evangelical Supremacists,
while others are born
to be Other.

Some people are born to extract
from healthy Earth
as they choose to expand personal
and corporate materialistic “wealth”.

Others are born to be entertained by,
and sometimes envious of,
these violent stories
of capitalistic rape
and plunder.

Multicultural dreams of inclusive democracy,
expanding throughout all cooperative economic strata,
encompassing all politically engaged genders,
all nations and tribes,
all positive energy systems
to regenerate a global health network
of wealthy freedom
for all interdependent creatures
globally here below,
and those who fly,
and revolve,
and generate light
power
energy,

These are ancient
indigenous dreams
of non-addicted trust,
non-dualistic Truth,
polycultural free-trade outcomes
for EarthDwellers,
EarthPatriots
EarthLovers
EarthSabbath Worshipers.

Regardless of age
gender
race
left-brain dominant enculturation,
colonizing violent history,
capitalism’s win/lose supremacist games,
energy’s zero-sum secularizing theology,
degenerative ecological fears
and angry
unfree
fossil fuel addiction,
consumer-driven overpopulation,
lack of freedom to sleep safely,
to live healthy outside
in familial communion
with Original Sacred EcoFeminist Earth,
etc.

The Dali Lama,
born to sainthood?
a view I doubt he would support,
says his religion is kindness.

Perhaps his spirituality
resonantly respects EarthMother’s kindness
and unkindness–
much easier to do outside
than inside a dimly addictive
unfree temple.

Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
pseudo-science,
nondual
nonviolent
inscrutable
paradoxical
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
analogy,
theological ecology.

Polynomials,
western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
free,
liberated,
communal saints
and divided sinners.

Fruits of Democratic Spirits

Modern minds,
torn by royalist repressions,
hoped democracy would inhale
and expand
freedom.

Freedom from depressing suppression,
lack of creative tension,
safe expression.

Freedom to invest
in post-feudal farms
and families
for future fresh respiration.

Lost were more indigenous memories
of ancient creature comforts,
democratic tribal humors
rumors
tumors benign
and sometimes malignant,
safe and scary,
significant and sacred.

Indigenous wild minds
worn smooth by felt democratic experience,
shared recreative tensions,
cooperative co-acclimation,
cherished freedom for eco-political integrity
more honorably cooperative
than freedom of competing ego-authority

In 2020 hindsight,
ecological
healthy Earth-relationships
for better democratic trust,
predict honorable
resonant
and resiliently touched
theological experience.

Golden Tongues and Silver Bullets

Freedom of speech
is less about freedom from suppression
when more about freedom toward mutual dialogue,
cooperatively held impression
to co-invest in active democratic hope.

Perhaps this is why
First Amendment non-violent communication values
grow in heart-felt significance
as Second Amendment rights to bear violent arms
recede in multicultural salience
safety
security
sanity.

This causal hypothesis
feels further supported
by First Amendment’s second part,
freedom to peacefully assemble,

More likely peace found through cooperative dialogue
than lost, again, through ballistic debate,
whether presidential or non-presidential,
featuring the sound of my own heated voice
drowning active hopes of all others present
here and now
longing to be heard
and known
reminded we belong First together

Not Second
to bear arms and words,
weapons against each other.

Having the right
does not make it right
to be violently
and egotistically wrong.

To Free The World

I heard today
a corporate goal
“To free the world of cancer.”

What I heard, instead,
“To free the Earth of human toxic nature.”

Often rooted
in feelings of not belonging,
not being good enough,
not even fitting in sufficiently,
too toxic,
unbenign,
too loudly aggressive
and/or quietly sinister
to be known and appreciated as I am,
as we are,

Can easily confuse discriminating effect
with intent to discriminate against,

Can confuse left-hemisphere deductive cultural privilege
with Straight
White
Male
middle-class through filthy rich
Militaristic-Capitalistic Supremacy.

I worry
our left-hemispheres invest too much
in from-above theologically-driven
retributive justice for sins of our Fathers
and anthropocentric analysis

Before noticing possibilities
for win/win economic/ecological
co-passionate empowering feelings
responsible wants
ecofeminist needs,
longings to win by others losing their patriarchal sense of belonging,
longings to win with others winning,
longings to not lose too awfully much more
while over-privileged
over-fed
over-watered
and emotively under-educated
right-hemispheres continue to lose hope of safety,
to lose faith in economic/ecologicaql co-investment
through resilient/resonant cooperative thoughts
and feelings and actions,
non-violent communications and co-educations
featuring GoldenRule energy democracy
listening and speaking,
acting and reflecting,
regenerating positives and degenerating negatives

Which generally involves
a great deal more curiosity-driven listening
for win/win neglect,

And a lot less brazenly proclaimed shaming
and blaming
for past win/lose abuse,
like a cancer
rabid and viral Yang
overpopulating living Earth
while not worshiping Her

Right hemisphere
sacred flow of yin-time
dipolar co-arising ecological
health-resonant
warm-latticed womb
of energy democracy motions,
more win/win
empoweringly benign.

Swing Low Sweet Chariot

One way
I know this afrocentric music,
rather than a eurocentric mere performance piece,
is longing for
a sweet and swinging chariot,
rather than a messiah white and male.

I know
this is a cooperative-felt spirit,
and not so much a competition,
because of how
word choices and round rhythms
combine to pitch longing free safe home.

A freestyle journey
to a rich robust and polycultured freedom
of tribes long living
loving Earth’s peace paradise.

A paradise
western civilization
has not sung or danced,
out loudly joyed about
for far too long
without a warm cooperative song

Swinging low and high
in sweetly waving gold
ruled and ratioed
traveler’s chariot,

Coming and going
racing forth and back
to carry us
in and out of home

To freedom’s too long lost,
stolen, kidnapped
while we were dreaming,
singing and dancing with another day
dreaming nights of disembodied free,

Anxiously anticipating,
weary
and yet warmly welcoming.

Cannibal Prophets

Prophecy is risky
and peculiar.

Prophets so seldom unveil opportunities
to win resilient integrity
without concomitant risks
of unhealthy failure.

Prophets of booming doom
and gloom
far outweigh voices for Golden Rules
and healthy tipping points
toward organic wealthy Ratios
to thrive opportunity rich
and risk free of threatening less
for any players
and for our working/playing Habitat,
Earth
and Her interdependent spacetime webbed ecological Universe,
also theologically known as Heaven(s).

Prophecy
has far less to say about future positive Paradise,

although manifest destiny
toward streets of capitalistic gold
and immaterial timeless life
for humane nature spiritualized souls
day and night Worshiping God the Father,
who is not a person
nor just a holistic Holy Ghost,
and is not Earth
and does not include owls
or dogs
or cats,
and certainly not skunks
or ravens
or vultures,

So Paradise becomes a Heaven
that may sound anti-ecological
to nature and beauty lovers,
a theological projection too transcendent
to remain humane and lovely
using a patriarchal anthro-hubris lens
toward monocultural vapidity,

Which is the opposite of rabidity,
more characteristic of hellish prophecies,
apparently confused with hopes more positive
and unmindfully compelling
fascinating
hypnotic
addictive.

Indigenous prophecies
include Cannibal Giant
who preys,
and never prays,
upon entire Tribes
Nations
and Confederacies of NationTribes
to chop off our heads
and boil them in beezle juice,

A protocol that begins with starvation,
perhaps because of climate degenerative climax issues,
but may continue just to count and hoard skulls
as early currency for Cannibal Giants
and their Warriors
demonstrating patriarchal power prowess.

If Cannibal Giants were themselves prophets
they would predict changes
from now through some future Earth climate
and human culture rooted in change trends
noticed from some past Great Transition time
toward this present moment
in Earth history,

A story with creation winners
and degenerative losers
among us cannibal head-hunters
of capital-hoarding
living in a climate
culture of regenerative/degenerative environmental health
and pathology.

Prophecy is rooted in retrospective
between a left-brain dominant HeadHunter,
a capitalistic win/lose God of theology
and our right hemisphere Gaian Hypothesis
of how to optimize ecological win/wins
in an interdependently latticed economy
predicting future impressive integrity of ego-health
co-arising eco-wealth.

Prophecy issues from cannibalizing roots
to survive,
then nutrition-driven enslavement
for needed agricultural workers,
then capital-development HeadHunter enslavement,
then win/lose head hunters
for industrial revolutions
into national colonies
owned by royal kleptocrats,
then passed to republican capitalists
for corporate profits,
not to be confused with prophets,
now perhaps passing on
toward win/win
left/right bicameral trusting
co-empathic
capital cooperative co-investors
in multi-theological ecology,

Left liberating Gaian hypotheses
and right conservational God of EarthLove
Integrity together prophesying
further climates
of resilient resonance
in past
and through future
regenerative health
predicting less degenerative head-hunter lack of wealth
as measured in trusted
re-memories of Paradise,
bilaterally co-invested,
co-investing,

Ego/eco-investment
in Paradise Prophecy
issuing back and forth,
back space and forth time,
to and fro
for and from
former Cannibal Giants.
