Narcissists Unanimous

I might feel grand
aspiring to omnipotent
omniscience

Whereupon omnipresence
might feel less necessary,
or even possible,
or desirable

In a secularized
reduced
dissociated apartheid,
sacred Us v sinful Them

An omnipotently inflammatory place
for every Other individual thing
and all Other routine
and orthodox Things,

Omnipresent capital events
in anonymously rational
linear
fundamentally dualistic frames

Either sacred Me
or secularized You
will win our antagonistic win/lose
evolving worldview news

Preferably reduced from
supremely anthro-privileged
down deep into
my ego’s highest omnipotent potential
best win/win omniscience sacredly encircled
to ubiquitously favor
least global cost
and most localized efficient
ego/eco healthcare
resonant balance

In a way not omnipotently possible
nor omnipresently invited
nor yet omnisciently compassioned

If only we were more adept
at losing win/lose
and playing win/win
Gods and Goddesses,
OmniPresent Icons
and OmniPotent Idols

Inviting sacred Gaian EcoFeminist spaces,
omnisciently omnipotent places,
unconditionally disregarding
LeftBrain Iconic Narks
Phallic Idols,
profit prophets
for Narcissists Unanimous.

Gods of Power

If God
and gods
and other paternal powers
resource love,
and not hate

And if we believe
that love fades
with encroaching fear

Faith strong rooted
in personal
and professional
and economic
and local
through global
trauma experience

And if god
and great paternal rulers
and warriors
and heroes
are free of Loser fear

If straight white paternal privilege
felt more free to grow omnipotently capable
of unconditional multicultural regard
for EarthTribe’s surviving health
and regenerating wealth
and recreated Earth thrival

Then it seems likely to me
that victims,
self-victimized
and/or other-victimized,
of and for addiction
loss
pain
trauma
chronic stress
poverty
disempowerment
incapacity of reliable health care
for all EarthTribes,

Victims of LeftBrain patriarchal education,
parenting by verbal and physical domination,
preaching by intimidation and shaming,

Victims of peers
siblings
and professional colleagues
for punishing and mutual blaming,
escalating mis- and dis-communication

Miss out on bicameral deep sacred learning,
parenting by safe and healthy cooperation,
preaching by mentoring and listening,
peers for healing mutual mediation
and panentheistic re-framing
opportunities for compassion’s integral redaction
of sacred EarthJustice HerStory

Understoried womb
of soulful nutritional
nurturing EarthMother
regenerating ecopolitical soil,
seeds,
nuts,
polyculturing eggs

These are all potent Paternity’s most sacred
loving
engaging
co-redemptive
co-invested opportunities
for expanding mindfulness,
consciousness,
enlightened co-empathic empowerment

Free of chronic fear
angered by traumatic
patriarchal inhumanity
severance
apartheid
dissociation
imprisonment
enslavement
excommunication
marginalization
disinvestment.

Here lies sacred curiosity
to replace
win/lose aggressions
with courage to embrace
win/win
health is social wealth
naturally spirited impressions.

Fathers of communication
and learning problems
engaging compassionate
nonviolent opportunities
to expand emergent win/win resilience.

Fearless, unconditionally loving
gods
and lesser rulers
most sacredly informing
therapies for trauma,
chronic stress,
fear,
anger,
self-rabid righteousness

Anthrosupremacist narcissism,
lust for monopolies
of secularized,
capitalized Paternalistic
monotheistic
unrealistic over-powers
expensively waged against

Peacemaking unconditional regard
of fearless
flawless
ominipotently omnipresent
omnisciently panentheistic
polyculturally healthy
emotion intelligence

Nonviolent communications,
restoring free freedom
to restory
patriarchal traditions
militarized punishing injustice systems

With monocultural tendencies
monotheistic theologies
monopolistic
traumatized
neglected and abused ecologies,
eco-matricide

But, if God
and gods
and other paternal powers
resource love,
and not hate

And if we believe
that love fades
with encroaching fear

We might also trust
that loves grows more resilient
with cooperative win/win
intent to democratically
and globally initiate
create
recreate
omnipotently mindful
trauma-informed
resonantly sacred
communionation

Courageous teachers
who remain curious students,
Enlightened parents
who remain win/win empowered children,
Rulers
who remain cooperative co-governors,
Patriarchs
who remain resiliently co-invested
ecofeminists,

Messianic heroes
who repair local trauma
with bodhisattva global reinvestment
in peace

Conservative paternalists
restoring green climate justice,
fearlessly engaging omnipotent integrity
of curiosity’s copious compassion

On sacred land
and sensate seas
where kindness
and mindfulness
are free
of fear
and anger,
trauma
and chronic stress,
which cost everyone

Including omnipotent God
and monopolistic corporate gods
and the lesser patriarchs
of scriptured history
exploring integrity,
most therapeutically sacred

Natural manly health
is also spiritual goddess EarthWealth,
co-passionate
spiraling
bipartisan communal potential.

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

Spirited Therapeutic Systems

It might become too ironically
and iconically embareassing
to admit
I am taking a (s)hit
while exploring
my latest
and perhaps final
nutritional surmise
compressing peak climax
surprise

A well-capitalized
Systematic Theology
of EcoLogical Systems
is not such
an inviting much
of a moving title

Yet herein
we might energetically
not also massively invite “should”
raise up Yang’s enlightening strengths
without also evacuating Yin’s paradoxical
outgoing flow
of nutritional exchange
from what was brown
and healthy egocentric ownership
going down
into integral potential
for ecosystemic stewardship
as dull
as giving a crap
might not resound

Yang
could become LeftHemisphere’s name
too often verbally expressed
overly impressed with ecologically
abstractly decontextualized
secularized lack of curiosity
about patriarchally
well-capitalized
anal Trumpistic retention

AND
Yintegrity’s dipolar co-gravitating
unconditional regard
for self-therapeutic indigenous wisdom
often nonverbally nonviolently felt
too often ecowomanist suppressed
Yang obstructive repressed
economically and politically oppressed
polytheistic sacred sacramental
excremental integrity
of health care giving
wealth share receiving
nutritionally nurturing
fertile regenerative
co-assets.

Yang dominant
conditional curiosity
about what is safe
and also healthy
to cooperatively
and transparently
black
v brown
v suspiciously blond disregard
too often seeks inside enlightenment
from outside above

While Yin’s anally repressed integrity
wants to soil
and soul empower
by releasing egocentric resources from within
not perpetuating anthrosupremacist
agonizing constipation
pushing down against
royal ceramic throne imbalance

In a frightening gut-wrenching worldview
wherein positive does not quite logically
or ecologically
or analogically
or psychologically
or gastro-intestinally
or polyvagally neuro-systemically
equal not negative

Like 1 outgoing nutritional pole
and 0 outflowing nurturing hole
feel like Yang
unconditionally positive regarding
not not paradoxical Yintegral potential
self-health care
reproducing Earth soil’s
repurposing wealth-share potential
nonzero soul.

Yang integrity
hears
and bears down
with deep-seated dualdark brown
systemic enlightenment
biologically whole
holy open for fertile
Yintegrity.

I painfully need now
and want here
to communally co-hear
coherent co-empowerment
through eco-theological
Yang secular bodies don’t stink
where sacred Yintegral minds don’t blink

Against o-empathic
co-invested
co-binary
polypathic
co-passionate
nonviolent co-governing
polycultural fecal communion

Favoring fertile EarthSoul

Co-operative Win/Win

and wholesome ironic
ego-evacuation

Not quite so
Yangishly Trumpian
triumphalistic
narcissistic
anthrosupremacist
LeftHemisphere dominant

Cooperative EarthCare

Where the Left
supports cooperative
respectful
integral
yet multicultural health care

The Right
conserves against future changes
in hierarchical wealth structures,
thereby augmenting competitive
ineffective class warfare

Rather than universal classroom welfare
where everybody can Left and Right bicamerally learn
healthy cognitive/affective resonant processing
of cooperative needs
and healthy wants

While the educational systems
we shape
and democratize
relearn the primal role
of cooperative positive
and negative competitive feelings

Trust/mistrust
that we are/are not
a gift species to empower all EarthTribe’s health
and safety

More than business as unenlightened usual
capitalist mistrusters
whose main faith is that we are
and must be
divinely ordained
StraightWhiteMale monotheistic God’s gift
to a sinful
unlistening
ungifted
uncaring
unhealthy
unsafe
former organic green garden
of now fallen Eden.

CoEmpathy
seeks internal absolution
from my own anthrosupremacy

Growing healthier polycultural experience
I want to pass through
my own monoculturing elitism,
too tolerably comfortable with apartheid,
with great anthro-loneliness,
narcissistically elite despair
about genocide
and ecocide.

Full multicultural health care giving
receiving
conserving
preserving
remembers gifts of trust
in EarthTribe’s polyculturing wealthy welfare

WholeEarth supported
by sacred gifts of sunlight,
divinely breathable air,
purely potable water
fertile empowering soil
domestic safety rules
for managing fire
and renewable fuels.

When Wrong Goes Right

When bad choices
speak in wrong voices
delivering shame,
deserving shunning
and irrepressible self-blame,

Reconsider this jump
from bad choices
to “wrong” voices
unable to consider tomorrow’s
potential more right rejoices.

No one of us humans
has divine omnipotent might
to make all the right omniscient choices
spoken belatedly by unchosen judgment voices

To be omnipresently good
and regeneratively healthy
and impenetrably safe
for ourselves
for our loved ones
for our species
for our plants
and living planet
at all times,
in all multicultural inside places,
and polyculturally robust
outside wealthy spaces.

On better days,
well fed and watered and rested,
we may try more benevolent curiosity
about why feeling good
and healthy
can seem so frustratingly short
and insignificantly small
compared to long time
and large resources

Invested by patriarchal god-fearing
straight white corporate capitalists
to entertainingly seduce
and identity reduce
you into isolating bad faith consumer
feelings

Erupting in egocentric
left-hemisphere dominant voices
that habitually collapse
bad
unhealthy absence
of potential right hemisphere co-relational rejoices
into inevitably wrong
unwealthy feminist choices

Speaking in wrong voices
delivering shame
deserving dark fame
swamped by irrepressible self blame.

If your Straight White God’s

Curiously forgiving all

Pandemonic Hope

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining”

I remember someone recently resaying
what has long lain unsaid
inside my paradoxical head,

When asked if I believe in God,
I don’t know what to say.

I might not believe in your God,
at least on my worst
pain-darkened day.

And,
I seem to believe in my own
only in those rare rain-free moments
healthy ego- and eco-gratifying

When I am having a climax heart
and head
song
and dance remembering
re-ligioning
reconnecting EarthMoment

Shared with at least one Other,
perhaps for our first through last time
in this
our day of sacred synergy

Sustaining
surrounding
celebrating a yellow morning
mellow sunrise
promising this wealthy day
without soggy rain

As we prepare to health harvest
warmly fragrant sun-dried hay
I quietly say

So, there is a God,
after all.

“And I believe in love
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God
even when he is silent.”

These two additional beliefs
feel like one Relief Belief
to my bicameral head choice
and heart voice.

For it has often been said
and felt
that God is love

Especially when
Matriotic HolySpirit of Love
doesn’t act like a Patriarchal Fool

And, by that,
I reference my own sociopathology
of privileged entitlement
monoculturally over-invested
in capitalist Straight
White
Earth Predations
Colonizations
Extractions
Rapaciousness

But,
my most courageous inscriptions
of whispering hope
often not felt enough
sacredly chosen silence
in spaces between
my LeftBrain dominant
distracting notes

Where my own AnthroSupremacism
falls vibrantly listening
to responsively hear
Elder MotherTrees
sigh
and breeze

Silently praying
for strong rooted
cooperative integrity

Within this organic Green Communion
forest of hands on
generating regenerous Hope.

Note:

Pandemonic Hope is part of a series of theological reflections offered to and from the All Souls Unitarian-Universalist Choir in New London, Connecticut. 

“Inscription of Hope” was composed for the Nebraska Choral Arts Society and Children’s Chorus by Z. Randall Stroope, in conversation with a Russian Folk Tune.¬† His lyrics are drawn from an inscription on cellar walls hiding Jews in Cologne, Germany, during World War II. Stroope’s own 1994 reflection on the significance of these words, in this Holocaust pandemonic context, “Hope was all they had to hold on to; hope was their only bridge to a brighter [nonviolently restoring¬†justice] tomorrow.”
