Mixing Politics and Religion

My grandfather
seemed wise with years
walking his rural spiritual path
in a relentlessly white
Christian dualistic church
dividing sinful nature
from sacred spirit.

He counseled:
Do not mix
religion and politics.

I wonder
how he would feel
about this mix
of sacred and profane
if he were to meet
my out lesbian activist
senior UU minister.

Clearly
we have mixed up
our religious community
within our local political culture

When we called
this clergy person
we did not ask her
to leave her politics
at any sacred
and ordained door.

On the contrary
we recognize
and celebrate
that she
and we
are politically empowered
and disempowered identities
with naturally spiritual experiences,
family traditions
and theological agendas.

I wonder
if my grandfather would realize:
If calling an out
feminist lesbian
as our minister
mixes religion
and politics,
against his well-meant advice

So too:
Calling a straight
white male
as his first
and second
and third
and fourth
and fifth
and sixth…
pastor
was also mixing politics
and religion
and sexuality

Also against his own patriarchal
not feminist,
monotheistic
not polytheistic,
monoculturing
not polyculturally resilient
healthy advice

Especially for a family farmer
valuing crop
and income diversity
who started out
as an adolescent
relying on organic horsepower,
spirited stallions
and mares
capable of peak experiences
and making ponies
and fertilizing fields
with sacred regenerative practices
for exercising political agency

Giving birth
to future
naturally religious
politically empowered
and disempowered
gender role identified bodies

Yang strong
and Yintegral flowing
wu-wei admixtures of secular politics
and sacred enculturing religious
integrity

Monotheistic
and polytheistic
and panentheistic
and atheistic experiences
cooperatively inclusive

Resiliently polycultural
political and sexual
dynamic communicators
within enlightened tribes
and across empowering species.

ReBuilding Paradise Lost

Paradise
like Rome
is not built
and not rebuilt
and rebuilt
and redeveloped
and healed
and redeemed
in one 24-hour
cycle
and recycle
and revolving
round day v night,

And/or
appreciatively regarding both day
and dualdark
rich and fertile
souled and soiled
night.

So too
my personal
and political
and economic
and ecological
and theologically reformed
unconditional win/win regard,
like God’s
and not EarthMother’s
and not Buddha’s
and maybe not Allah’s
and not Atman’s
and not Gaia’s
and not Diana’s
and not Blue Heron’s
and not Dragonfly’s,
has become Christian Reformed Evangelistic
LeftBrain dominantly complicated
to resiliently hang onto cooperatively coinvested peace
for more than a day,
or even an hour

Instead
we are distracted
dismayed
by chronic win/lose stress,
By early childhood trauma experiences
of community original win/lose sin

Capitalized by zero-sum competitive
closed cause/effect linear
either/or bipolarizing fundamentalism,
either unconditionally regarded
as saved,

Or discontinuously disregarded
as damned:
too sacredly holistic,
too round paradoxical circling,
too wide open-systemic
intuitive ecofeminist
panentheistic goddess worship
womanly unmanly mysticism
wicked womb witchery
emasculation
slutty butchery.

Original sin
remains monotheistically addicted
to fear and anger
about panentheistically sensuous
Eve
and big black seductive Serpents
offering MotherEartha’s Apple Pie.

Various Mosaic Law reformers
of Patriarchal-Capitalism
LeftBrain dominant commercial imbalance,
including Jesus of Nazareth,
have suffered and died
to powerfully
panentheistically
indigenously
return to wisely rooted
win/win bipartisan co-passion
and active co-investment

Deep rooted in dualdark soul
and soil of love’s co-present
peakish causes
and valleyed effective
affective
and reflective experience

Reforming my win/lose original zero-sum
competitive
predative
judgmental
self-righteous
greedy assumptions
about humanity’s essential step
away from win/win Paradise,
our mortal Achilles’ heel
of ego-self v. eco-other,
rather than ego+eco sacred EarthMother,
primal potential
for lose/lose disintegration
and for win/win regeneration,
and all not-quite-so-original
win/lose in-betweens,

Round Win/Win
Win/Lose
Lose/Lose octaves
of whole
open sensory
globally universal
organic paradising neuro-systems
nested and networked
working cooperatively co-invested
co-passionately
co-relationally
co-intelligently
co-therapeutically together
better than monotheistically divided
judged,
poles apart.

A win/win Holy
Open Whole EarthSystem,
non-zero sum cooperatively co-invested
Original Paradise Theory
of polycultural communion
feels like it could multiculturally attract
inter-religious
and meta-paradigmatic health and safety advocates
scientists
artists
musicians
muses
comedians

Integrating our capital,
our gut,
and our sacred grown round root,
and full core intelligent curiosity
pregnant with polypathic paradigms,
both secular and sacred narratives,
myths about integral Paradise potential,
transcendent Heavens
of original win/win systemic
sensory
sensual
sexual Paradise potential
for regenerative
unconditional healthy regard,
resilience
through robust wealth
of cooperative resonance.

Yet,
somehow,
despite all our narratives
that healthy Paradise of Love
overpowers unhealthy demons of hate,
God’s monotheistic
anthrosupremacist
not at all unconditional
win/lose judgmental disregard,
like my own,
remains patriarchally
and capitalistically addicted
to long term degenerative trends

Like suicidal ideation,
Traumatic Stress DisOrder,
corporate and corporal greed,
loneliness,
repression,
ecofeminist suppression,
nationalistic straight white exceptionalism,
monoculturally self-righteous genocide
and, now, sacred EarthMatricide

Blind
and deaf
to natural
spiritual feelings
longing for Earth Matrimonial Paradise

Needing resilient health and safety
panentheistic global systems of care,
unconditional regard
wanting universal salvific health
through unitarian yintegral wealth
of cooperatively co-invested
PolyCultural-Communion

NonViolently communicating
win/win panentheistic
Here/Now
Space/Time
Body/Mind
Nature/Spirit Paradise
fomenting virulent indigenous wisdom
restoring unconditionally resilient regard

Which,
like Rome
and like Peace,
is not built
and rebuilt
in one 24-hour day.

Healthy Compassion Parties

I am deeply concerned,
worried,
anxious
that We The Humane Healthy People
need to calmly
and firmly say:

The Republican NATIONAL Party
no longer supports:
Public Health,
Mental/Spiritual Health,
Planetary Climate Health,
Cognitive/Emotive Integrity
Resilient Economic Wealth
Healthy Democracy.

A therapeutic
redemptive revival
of a trusted
true
and patriotic
Grand Old MultiCultural Party
requires pruning back through historic
toxicity
to the Eisenhower administration
channeling the Lincolnesque longing
for a more civil discourse
between those who are enslaved,
those who feel economically
and politically oppressed,
between loyal adversaries
sure of a United State of commitment
to public wellbeing,
green environmental and economic prosperity,
empowering profoundly co-empathic public health
and conservational safety.

My own Michigan
white privileged
homophobic
evangelical ChosenPeople
monotheistic father
never would have voted for a Hillary Clinton,

And he never would have voted for a Donald Trump
because of Anti-Christian vainglorious pride
in having no experience,
including veteran experience,
defending humane health
and sacred social safety.

The RNC owes We
The MultiCultural Democratic People
an apology
and reparations,

A therapeutic
bipartisan peace plan
for national resilience,
for global green health,
and for ecological-economic safety,
sanity,
EarthResonant security.

Hedonistic Hate

When we compare the numbers
and percentages of innocent,
trusting lives lost
in significant part because of Christian
militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic judging fundamentalism,
punishing Afghanistan
and other Islamic cultures
over the past four or five decades,

To the number
and percentage of innocent
economically and politically trusting lives
lost in significant part
because of Moslem militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic vengeful fundamentalism,
punishing the U.S.
and other NorthWestern Christian cultures

The outsized scale of human
and environmental casualties
in Afghanistan
does not redeem Bin Laden’s terrifying success
on 9/11.

But, this difference in chronic ballistic stress
does suggest why
a well-capitalized terrorist
was able to garner so much economic
and political support
from those already too familiar
with sudden
tragic
violent losses of family
and friends
on 9/11.

This is not to say U.S victims
and non-victims (should there be any)
asked for vengeful death
nor deserved such tragic
excruciating loss,

But
these same losses
may remind us
we, as a democratically healthy
responsible wealthy nation,
a polycultural society,
could have listened with more extensive
bilaterally compassionate ears
and mass mediated eyes,
to the rapacious horror,
loss,
trauma,
fear,
anger,
hate,
chronic anxiety,
post- and pre-traumatic stress disorder

Perpetuated by militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic
dogmatic
RightWing
LeftBrain dominant privilege
elitism
supremacy
autistic autocracy
greedy kleptocracy
dissociative denialism

Doubt in cooperative polycultural powers
of global compassion

Breaking Through Nationalism

Yuval Noah Harari
suggests that Nationalism’s
Big Three Nemeses are fear of
nuclear holocaust,
degenerative climate trends,
and Business As Usual disruptions
of eco-political technology.

When I first read this list
of his global Three,
the one that stood out
at least for me,
to potentially
break through our tendency
to see through lenses
nationalistically
is Earth’s great climate pathology.

Still,
all three are LeftBrain dominant,
StraightWhiteMale privileged,
Patriarchal-Capitalist nationalistic systems
of scientific deductive-rooted secularism
and defensive
extractive-infested
militarism.

Aside from a home habitat
in WholeEarth Crisis,
extinguishing all hope
of future health
is our cooperative multicultural wealth
regenerations,
our ability to distinguish
which of these three
is most transparently
exploitive and disempowering
our SunShine EcoSystem,

To dialogically determine
which is most polyculturally vulnerable
to inflaming
already repressive Patriarchal/Capitalism,

Which is most unenlightened
and monotheistically RightWing
StraightWhiteMale
LeftBrain dominant

May also be the unholy Fascist fascinated
demonizing ecowomanist healthy choice
and Earth as sacred Goddess
panentheistically denying,
Holy Nature/Spirit indigenous defying,
climatically degenerative Nationalism, yes,
but also, more fundamentally dualistic,
AnthroSupremacism
over ecofeminist healthy wealth
of fertile sacred Earth

Where monoculturing climate “change”
may become most easily defined
by Yanged out RightWing predation
fueled by a competitive economy
of hierarchical
from-above scarcity,
rather than from-within
ecological integrity.

Then again,
I could also see win/win opportunity
for health as wealthy polycultural activity
in immigrating away from global fear
of nuclear hostility

Emigrating toward global polypathic thrival
post-secularizing revival of cooperativity
principles of Eartherapeutic Energy
as healthy integral democracy,
