Slow Grown Grace

Poetry
like unpartnered,
unteamed,
slow dancing

However rhythmically precise,
concisely devised

Does not dance well
in a highly competitive
youth-oriented
commercial entertainment market

But,
does better
in cooperative venue voices,
disproportionately enthused by ancient women
investing in large-print choices,

Preferring off-line accessibility,
and not too expensive!

More deeply embedded
in soulful
left and right co-empathic
slow grown engagement.

Empowering CoInvestments

Feeling economically extorted
is like recognizing our collective guilt
regarding past ecological extractions.

Cooperative motives
for proactive economic health investments
are harbingers
re-enactments
co-investments in positive
resiliently democratic
ecotherapeutic communication outcomes.

Economic justice
of a particular exchange,
of any one transactional communication event,
depends not only on the mutually invested/divested
short-term
and decontextualized
un-historicized local outcome

But also,
restorative economic justice
moving toward global cooperative communication peace
depends on mutually non-competitive
non-violent
co-passionate investment intent
for long-term
historically re-contextualized
ecological health benefits
to our global regifting,
gratitude enlightened,
politically empowering economy.

Extortion is reverse face
of pro-active giving
gifting
gracing
forgiveness
liberating redemption
from isolation,
non-communication,
excommunication,
marginalization,
criminalization,
starvation,
extraction from our social capital economy
predicting more global extortion
from our communally wealthy
ecologically healthy
relationship patterns.

So too,
extraction is reverse face
of reinvestment,
natural regeneration,
spirited sacred redemption
of co-investors hearts,
co-messianic hands and feet,
co-bodhisattva roots
fed by historically multicultural,
economically wealthy voices
and ecological healthy choices

For deeply empowering
enlightening absence of distorted
competitive
extractive
kleptocratic extortion

Of historically empowered Haves
from monoculturally disempowered,
poor in spirited, HaveNot

A fair share of healthy communication potential
for re-investing
in cooperatively empowering
compassionate co-investments

And not so much feeling forced
into economic extortion
furthering ecologically unhealthy extraction
from resiliently wealthy co-investments
in future health restorative
regenerations.

Graceful Barbara

To Barbara

When Peace Warriors fail to breathe further into Earth’s sacred time,

they do thereby commend multicultural We

The People who are faithfully left behind

to continue cooperatively breathing out

our Bodhisattva Anthemed Paradise.

Grace…

Well, love then…

Most certainly compassion

Passions know we so richly deserve
what is Earth’s most passionate need,

Resonant voices belong
in Earth’s impassioned longing,

Resilient humane health passions
cannot cost Earth’s desecrated illness,

Knowing we so robustly reserve yintegrity
of Earth’s most luminous yanged out synergy,

Grace breathes in multiculturing laughter
and spews her wealth
of Earth’s polycultural health,
in and out
no longer inhaled
so no stronger exhaled
as any less
than our continued breath
in Earth’s most graceful solidarity

Of EcoParadise
breathed sacredly in pace together
and out for EarthGrace,
Passion’s timeless EgoPleasure

Breathing in Me
timeless revolutions
still breathing out healing faith
in EarthTribe wealthy We
non-violently

Recommending graceful meanings universal
Black EcoFeminist Lives expiring out
EarthMother’s wealthiest pray

Recommencing secular uniting purpose
enough for this continuous,
yet right now feeling discontinuous,
internal healthy day

Of inside unspoken grace…

Well, then bold
as well-sung love…

And, most healthy danced
EarthWealthiest compassion.

Not Often Enough

Sometimes,
not often enough,
I connect with all the good Ones
who grow so much in me

And
when we re-member these times
lost in right now space,
We gather no grand finale harvest

But remain so very grateful
for whom We have been
and where We have gone
and when We might romp once again
before this time’s curious end.

Bending just, and unjustly, around
life’s next grateful
fateful
corner,

Zero summing all these great Ones
who grow so much in graceful We.

Buddha Listening

Buddha is deeply listening

My esteemed teacher
kindly reminds me,

“To see the master
not as a [merely natural] human being,
but as the Buddha himself,
is the source [and resource]
of highest blessing.”

But,
not necessarily the deepest blessing
for all EarthBodies
seeking spiritual multicultures
of regeneration.

For ecofeminists,
reincarnations of The Buddha,
win/win green
yet still appearing
and reappearing Male,

Remains win/lose disappointingly dissonant
with Padmasambhava’s Promise,
“Complete devotion
brings complete blessing;
absence of doubts
[especially about issues of health and environmental safety]
brings complete blessing;
absence of doubts
brings complete [win/win] success.”

It concerns me,
this universally intended
therapeutic resolution
for optimizing spiritual enlightenment
for all internal multicultural valuers

Still,
in the town where you live,
in the heart you won’t give,
fails to recognize
a healthy green new deal
ecofeminist
may find it easier
if Master
were maybe more Matriarchal,

If male characteristics of The Patriarchal Buddha
could give more multiculturing room
to daughters and sons
and all trans-sensory in-between buddhas
and Positive Deviant Messianic EcoDesigners
and Feminist Carpenters
and Restorative Green Justice ReCyclers
and Climate Health Activists

Matriarchal Teachers
primally schooled by MotherEarth,
Goddess Gaia
Green NonPartisan CoPassionate Communicators
CoOperators
Win/Win Ego/EcoSystemic L/R dipolar gamers,

PolyPhonically conscious
of PolyPathic amusing thought experiments
spiritual
and sensual
and sensory

As Buddha,
deeply ecofeminist
and widely multicultural, listens.

Sharing Is Caring

Yesterday
I heard someone say
To cure police
and military violence,
we need a NonTrumpian change of culture.

Sometimes revolutionary changes
include conserving feminist elements
of ancient healing cultures;

Intent to reward multicultural inclusion
rather than hanging on to patriarchal
and capitalistic monocultural supremacy–
a culture of exclusion,
excommunication,
and extraction from Earth’s communal nature
and spirit.

Sometimes we need to restore justice
and peace to our own soil
and souls
before we are ready to grow
healthy seeds of primal relationship,
healthcare,
compassion,
into wealthy win/win Paradise.

I have also heard it said,
If you show mercy
to a sociopath,
And if you merely shun
an imperialistic narcissist,
you will only fuel future selfish outrage.

But, I have lived with oppositional defiance
neurologically hard-wired
for adolescent megalomania
and know that punishment,
revenge,
violence,
anger,
fear,
and hatred fuel further sociopathology

Not fertile healing warmth
of transparent and vulnerable attachment,
healthy curiosity,
abundant care,
nonviolent communication,
compassion,
gratitude for opportunities
to explore win/win polycultural outcomes
ecologically healthy
and communally wealthy
erupting into global healing
theological experience of grace.

My daughter
with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
listens by the hour
to a kids song,
“Sharing is caring.
Be kind to everyone.”

But, we train our police,
and our soldiers
and teach our political party
and economic investors
the opposite
retributive
competitive
hostile
paternalistic
capitalistic
win/lose
zero-sum
monoculturing shadow
of ecofeminist multicultural truth
and beauty,
nature
and spirit.

The false peace of tolerating mutual win/lose hostility
is a sin of freedom’s omission
to reconnect with EarthBeauty’s greater gracious half.

Auspicious Superstition

What are differences
and similarities
between suspicion
and superstition?

One seems rooted in natural
and sinister
causes.

The other in spiritual
and ambiguous
pauses
and becauses.

Although suspicion
could be about grace,
causes of anonymous compassion,
yet of a physical
and natural
source–

Probably not metaphysically
spiritually
resourced.

Whether suspicions
and superstitions
are of negative
or positive
or ambiguously curious intent,
may have more to do with what we can hold
and invite
with an open hand
and mind

Than what we feel we must grasp
and autonomously own;
extract from living Earth
for mere ego-serving purposes.

What differences
and similarities
co-arise
between anxiety
and anticipation?

What are differences
and similarities
between being a spoke
and becoming an organic part
of a revolutionary wheel
revisioning 20/20 climate climax

An ambiguous
tipping pointed health legend
for global regenerations
of wealthy superstitions.

Permacultural Grace

I wonder what it means
we are a multicultural species
still capable of waging war,
employing ballistic terrorists,
investing in capitalism’s ruthless game
of surgical monopoly
to become patriarchs of bloodied mountains,

This feels related,
perhaps co-arising,
with inability to distinguish
an ecology of natural grace
from an efficient economy of spiritual just rewards,

Ego’s self-righteous returns
for prudent win/lose strategic investment
in owning Earth,
pieces of the property pie,
and renting human secularized resources
by the mundane weekday hour,
or contractual time-clock year

Leaving behind jubilee years
hopes and tears
and sabbaths
for those naturally deprived
and spiritually poor;
meat to feed future real-world war machines.

Victories and defeats in war,
terror,
shouting-matches,
strategic aggression against maligned characters,
colonizing predation,
political and religious monopolization
of win/lose investments
in overpowering persuasion–
These can all be earned,
but not graced.

Love,
life,
health,
natural/spiritual hybrid wealth,
awe,
compassion,
gratitude,
kindness,
mercy,
cooperativity,
synergy,
regenerativity,
integrity,
restoration,
resonance,
healing,
co-redemption,
communion–
These are signs and wonders,
powers and co-arising principalities
of wondrous grace,
and cannot be earned
or reductively unlearned.

What could be evolving purpose
in outrageously degenerative wars,
deliberate intent to terrorize
and counter-terrorize,
hate,
oscillating cycles of anger and fear,
evil humors
and cynical financial investments
against each sacred Other,
against Earth’s habitual health?

What could be revolving meaning
in ecosystemic wealth
of co-passionate powers,
religions of polycultural kindness,
multicultures of cooperative integrity,
Earth’s sacred economies
of permaculturing grace?

Planning for Grace

Last night I arrived very late
for a GRACE planning team meeting.
GRACE’s mission advocates against
all things racist,
whether systemic
or the normal chaos of hate
and sin
against everyday non-violent win-win
choices
policies
procedures
positions
platforms political and economic
sacred and secular
sociological and neurological.

I stepped into discussion of a thesis
that all policies are either racist
or anti-racist.

We were trying out various policies
to see if we could discover which they were.
This reminds me of a popular radio show
outing “HIDDEN RACISM!”

This discernment process
also reminds me of a hiring incident
in our Southern Region
In which a job description
with preference for academic credentials
over indigenous democratic leadership experience
led to hurt feelings of being disrespected
and concerns about systemic white male privilege
within our Unitarian Universalist Association
for egalitarian
and interdependent compassion.

Are budgeting procedures
that begin with authority of last year’s status quo
and are then incrementally nuanced
through recommendations of currently empowered authority figures,
like Treasurers
and CFOs
and Board of Invested,
often age Infested,
Directors,
racist or anti-racist?

Is prejudice just about policies
that must be bilaterally explicated
as healthy or unhealthy for inclusive empowerment,
or is white male privilege also hidden in our procedures,
our therapeutic proposals,
our strategic plans
to do more of the ZeroSum same,
whatever that may competitively be?

What about all our communications,
verbal and non-verbal,
personal and public?

What about all our investments
of time
and money
and positive or negative
or ambivalently uncommitted attitude?

And are all these things
just racist or anti-racist?
Or might they also be
egopatriarchal or ecofeminist,
ageist or multigenerationally inclusive,
nonbinary-phobic or pansexual,
aristocratic or democratic,
communal or capitalistic,
cooperative or competitive,
polycultural or monocultural,
WinWin or LoseLose,
NonZeroSum or ZeroSum,
RightBrain prominent or LeftBrain dominant,
non-violent or violent?

I can hardly wait to read more
about this thesis or antithesis
to find out what I may have missed
all my racist or anti-racist years.
