I Feel MisGuided

It feels misguided,
yet I do not feel misled,
to aspire to fame, measured in assets
and/or in power to influence others,
capital and social benefits
possibly acquiring famous
and infamous allies
in glorious success
ingloriously dramatic defeat
of naked front page stories.

It feels safer
and healthier
for resiliently wealthy outcomes
to aspire to unnoticed integrity
with other win/win healthy players–
neighbors earn extra safety points.
or even partially, realizing
it is for this we are born
and yet belong already
sacred subjects more than secular objectives,
sympathetically with,
and compassionately of,
living Earth

Both humane naturally competitive interest
and divine spiritually cooperative
multicultural investment.


I might have once lived
on a planet
in an actively green multiculture
of Holistic-Organic Nature/Spirits

Green spiritual ecofeminist climate activists
are at least equal to natural red-blooded egopatriarchal
swelling sticks,
thinking in Lose/Lose nihilistic
white privileged preferring
straight male trucker dialects
more orthodox and safe
than furry dark panthers
speaking in baritone deep passions

While sinking within our/their
capital-unnaturalistic Win/Lose
old school Theory of MonoCapitalistic Patriarchal Evolution

As if Earth were created
by a fascist monotheistic patriotic nationalist
and, of course, a courageous champion
of competitive win/lose rights
to choose “later” on the Climate-Loser side,
white western male monocultural disempowerment
of dominant Trumpian vintage.

Short term capital LeftBrain losses
deferred on out
into also now even longer
long longing terms
with degenerative ecopolitical trends,

Like borrowing
on our children’s evaporated corporate
win/lose capital-industrial-militarization
lose/lose anthro/theo/eco/ego/bio/neuro/zero energy
future degenerative naturally spiritual
restorative justice
seeking historic win/win amends

We might once live
on a planet
with an actively green multiculture
democratically formed
of Holistic-Organic Nature/Spirits
living on
and with
communion win/win properties
of multicultural mediation
through full-six sensory
non-violently felt communication
non-nasty tasting
non-aggressive touch
voices, inside and/or outside,
20/20 revolutionary sight.


In Our Distance Circle

Once upon time’s center
grows two permaculturing farmers,
multicultural mediators
of Earth’s healthy polypathic remainder,

And, surrounding them,
seven elders
and their cheer leading mascot
of disabling foolery

Arriving each spring
in his wheeled chair
to witness
and sometimes loudly prophecy,
to entertain with his win/win intentions,
studying compassionate economics
and empowering politics
and enlightening neurological communion
v dissonance.

These aged and playful snowbirds
form a Wisdom Circle
conjoined by all farmers

Committed to Earth’s health care
in humble Vermont neighborhood places
spaces balancing Green Lives Matter races
into organically interdependent co-investments.

This Circle plans cooperative gardens,
MultiCulturally designing
and redesigning shared outdoor climate spaces
in and on now abandoned places
they purchase together
to divest of Green Commons neglect
and invest in a local cooperatively-held enterprise

With land and water and healthy air-based capital
where patient customers
become curious partners
contributing cash
but also labor,
and nutritional equity,
gracious investment
and/or benignly viral infestment.

This Green Wisdom Circle
plants fruit and nut trees,
vegetables EarthMothers insist they eat
and would like as much as fruit sweet
if they remain of right/left balancing mind.

They plant hemp,
and make baskets
and yoga mats
during dispersed winters
into the retiring diaspora
season for planning futures
of health restoring EarthJustice.

Circles of weavers
and knitters
turn lambs
into shorn sheep
into yarn
into blankets
winter masks
with ear muff handles.

this Circle will reincarnate Wisdom
into Fire Circles for compline meditations
and story telling
into Singing Circles
of care medication
for young through old,
for those present living now,
and here dead
and yet to arrive
within all sacred regenerating species,

Egos circling within ecosystems,
interweaving networks
of TruthSeeker Circles
sharing win/win BeautyVisions,

Communion Farming Centers
within nonviolent communication systems
for engaging nutritional health,

Sacred ZeroCore recovery Allies,
not Lone Warriors,
within Earth’s fully present
care giving as receiving.


FullFlushed Trump Cards

He begins
commenting on Chuang-tse
who was commenting on Laotse’s
“Exalt not the wise
So that the people shall not scheme [win v lose]
and contend [in partisan debate];”
Wait, am I in the wrong place
or the wrong day
and or time?
The title drawing me here
and now
is “The Prophetic Function of Trumpism”
Exalt not self-promoting grandeur,
So democratic culture
shall induct win/win resolutions together
and resonate with sacred integrity.
so maybe this is the right place
but ahead of our time,
like prophecy
and not-not double negative paradoxymorons;
Exalting the transparently invulnerable
unwise leader.
He came like a doctor
to treat a diseased patient.
We will cooperate
like a health care climate
to retreat with a wealthy EarthPhysician.
He came like a good son
proffering medicine to a father
sick from neglect.
S/he will come
as a loving FatherLight
investing in multicultural meditation
within a Messianic ChristChild
who has been sick
from an EarthClimate of neglect.
For in the world of perfect peace,
no value was placed
upon exalting the wise,
or putting the capable men in position.
For on a multiculturally healthy Earth
restoring justice as peace,
abundant win/win values
overwhelming  win/lose capitalism
will not be invested upon abusing
and violating the unwise,
instead committed to restoring healthy egos
to cooperative leadership positions.
The president
was like the top of a tree
unconsciously transcendent,
and the people lived like the deer
in the forest.
Cooperative circles of residents
will return as root systems
of a sacred EarthTree
communicatively communioned,
and egosystems will again live
like nutritious extended families
of mammals
amid a forest of MotherTree icons
to and for climate health,
future seeds
and wombs
of Bodhisattva EarthMother.
Doing right,
they did not know
it was called justice.
Having gone violently wrong,
punishingly win/lose,
manna v mammon,
capitalistic top to bottom,
we have deeply learned
we are called to cooperative
democratic peace.
Kind to one another,
they did not know
that it was called humanity.
Having been unkind
egotistically against each polarized Other,
we have deeply and multiculturally learned
we are divinely called humane.
They were straight
and did not know
it was called faithfulness.
We will also be LGBTQ
and will not doubt
wealthy culture calls to octaves
of climates in full color.
They were proper,
and did not know
it was called honesty.
They were improperly Yang hemisphere imbalanced,
and will become witnesses
to compassion’s universally cooperative yintegrity.
They moved about
and called to one another for help,
and did not call it favor.
They will immigrate and emigrate
for climate restoration
and co-invest in each other for help,
and call this restoring Earth’s optimal justice.
their actions left no trace
and their events
left no record.
our future actions
and wise words
will leave no history conquering trace
and EarthTribe’s creative events
will leave no monoculturing
monosyllabic history,
no summery
drawing together past
meets present
prophetically greets future,
no re-membering conclusion,
no polling trends
for restoring EarthJustice health
as our prophetic bicameral measure
of cooperative vocational wealth.



True and False Beliefs

believe in universal exemption
from Earth’s cooperatively resilient wealth
of resonantly-held holistic health.

at our best,
believe in universal redemption
with EarthMother and LoveFathers’
cooperatively gracious compassion.

at our most transcendent heights
and intimate depths,
believe in experiencing universal causation,
resonant correlations
of atoms and waves,
of staid matter and flamboyant energy
of space revolving place
and spiraling evolutions
causing effective sacred time:

Invested with transcendent
through intimate Earth,
natural vision
through spiritual listening,
polypathic thoughts
and caused by
polyphonic feelings.


From Our Front Porch

attached decks,
intimate places for alfresco,

These make a difference
between a fortressed house
and a transparent home,
between an ego castle
and an eco-habitat.

We also spread rhododendron bushes
and hostas,
flowers and ferns
around our stone
and concrete bound foundations.

We want stable defenses
but prefer to camouflage houses
in organic color,
life giving and taking shapes.

These boundary vistas
speak of heart felt reminders
our habitat is rooted
in Earth’s wilderness

In vulnerability
hidden from transparency
except with those who share our sacred space
and upon,
within our co-passioned present time,

Presence bonding,
re-membering past wildness
anticipating future re-generative
re-bounding win/lose less
for more win/win paradise

Just barely 2020 visible
and silently audible
and fresco fragranced
and tasted,
and so nearly touched
longing into belonging
on our cooperatively-owned front porch.


Healthy Democracy

Democratically effective governance
of people
and planets
cannot begin with degenerative violence
without ending as militant predation,

Which does not sound like healthy
and cooperative co-invested democracy
even to a child
familiar with playground bullies.

Rather than roots in “retributive justice”
religiously licit order,
healthy democracy stems from restorative win/win peace,
multicultural nature spirits
and bio-systemic sacred wisdom,

At least interdependent wisdom enough
to avoid militaristic patriarchal predation
and pollution
of all that Earth holds sacred.


Making Cooperative Power

All regenerative energies,
like sunlight
and Permaculture Design
and Restorative Justice
and love
and compassion
and empathy
and contextual intelligence
and multicultural mediation
and non-violent communication,
are interdependently One,
in original embryonic matriarchy.

So all degenerative entropic trends
are separating identities
reverting back into One
timelessly eternal Source,
as positive health intended,
of course.

Divine energetic voices
appear in sunlight’s daily emotions,
climaxing transitions at lunch time
and waning remissions
in deep learning economic dreams
of sacred shadowed night,
mystic mystery
mysteriously ambiguous,
paradoxical win v lose
double-binding boundaries

Sensing right-brain dreams
are sacredly iconic stuff,
ether, light and dark,
atmosphere, loud and soft,
sensory, fragrant and disgusting,
healthy and pathological,
multicultural and monocultural
eco-balanced and/or ego privileged

Without west hemisphere supremacist language
within which God’s permacultural perennial voices
can still be actively heard
speaking humane-divine inspiration

As clear
transparent water
timelessly envelopes bubbling rivers,
burbling wet root systems
preferring healthy plants
and soils
and NonZero-Sum economic souls
and politically organic zones
and naturally/spiritually curious sums
and oxymoronic Source,
primal co-relationship
still bicamerally balancing healthiest wealth

Waxing and waving in
and waning and reweaving out
octaved light
and fractured fractal darkness
empowering health
by disempowering dispassionate demagoguery;
uniformly stagnant,
violently tongued and pitchforked extraction,
white privileged segregation
and dark nonwhite diminished,
anti-golden rule.

Punishing Voice
substituting profane nationalistic patriotism
for regenerative trusting democracy,

And substituting international disloyalty
for multicultural win/win Golden EcoPolitical Rules,

And substituting colonizing patriarchalism
for EarthTribe patriotism,

Loyalty to EarthJustice
extinguished by nightmares,
haunting revisions of demonic demagoguery

AntiAngelic dreams following TheLight
of bicameral communication,
and multilaterally
restoring EarthTribe justice,

As originally spoken
through Primal Sacred Relationship
with Goddess Voices perennially ecofeminist,
organically green,
inspiring and expiring,
ego and eco therapies
of wealthiest resilient health.

deep learning therapeutic rooted
in EarthMother’s embryonic wealthy attachment.


Organic Therapy

Sogyal Rinpoche,
and all the Rinpoche family before him,
prescribes therapeutic merit
of contemplating my Master’s face.

For ecotherapists
the Master of Regenerative Intent
is also Mother Earth’s face,
multicultural health
in ecological/theological harmony.

like ancient saints and sacred scriptures,
teachers and teachings,
oral tradition Tellers
and Experiential ReTellers,
do not distinguish
between secular ecological relationships
and sacred theological co-passions

Because we cannot see
or hear,
or touch,
or smell any difference
that makes a difference
between exterior left-hemisphere dominant
and interior right-hemisphere ecofeminist

In appositional dialogue
and not unhealthy oppositional debate.

whether because of dualistic blindness
or nondualistic wisdom,
or both physical experience
and metaphysical theory,
or all above and below
tipping points of universal mediation,

Gazing on the Face of Earth
is, for this ecotherapist,
a growing awareness
of changing enlightenment,
beginning with dawn source East
and ending with dusk’s last gasp
surrounding light’s enculturing dominance
fading from East toward West.

In this light’s day
my brown-skinned daughter
with lively brown crossed eyes,
born addicted to alcohol,
leaves the light and darkness of my home
to enter a residential facility

Paid for by the State of Connecticut
and staffed by a non-profit Lutheran agency,
with professional behaviorists
and egotherapists,
left and right hemisphere teachers
of deep learning
spiritual emotions with natural thoughts,
natural thoughts expressing spiritual
sensory sensed
healthy healthed feelings,
co-arising Earth’s facial ease
v disease,
light v dark,
empowerment v entropy.

But, even today,
as we finish packing
and travel for an hour
and go through this postVirus placement,
the profound and most significant drama
of light unfolds
across the Face of our exterior Mother

Where sun and shadow
again sweep
and climax
and wane

Where seasonal climate
and daily temperature and humidity,
rooted in yesterday’s pre-millennial climate
and global subclimates,
branch out
toward tomorrow’s regenerative
and degenerative
health wealth and pathology stealth trends,
co-arising this day’s unique permacultural opera

and celebrating operations
of daily changing
uniquely evolving
resiliently revolving Face
my daughter’s new and old homes
of light and shadow
resolutely best embrace.


Temple of Grain

They prayed a Buddhist prayer:

And may we cooperatively dwell
in Earth’s great equanimity
free from attachment
and dispassionate aversion.

As regenerations continued this bodymind practice,
MotherEarth Attachment transposed
disassociated from healthy relationships
with all empowering
and enlightening creatures,
and was replaced by “greed”
and correlated “envy”

Greed rooted in fear
individual egocenters are not enough identity,
bodies carrying minds
with unspoken messages,
they did not have enough;

Envy co-arising anger
as greed invokes fear
about insufficient empowering time
and inadequately enlightening life.

They rediscovered envy co-arising anger
because we are born with win/win attachment promise
but discover our autonomous mortality
through death of lovers and enemies,
and all creatures in-between,
through suffering dreams
of those with timeless robust health
and greed
for immortal wisest wealth.

And this is how these NeoBuddhists
reconnected ancient metaphors
of Taoist non-zero sum roots
left/right bicameral intelligence
Yanged and Yinning

And this is one way
we might both start
and conclude
each mindbody full day
free from greed
and envy
and patriarchal aversions.


Love’s Constant Complexity

that Christian theologians
have traditionally agreed
God is unchanging

Because steadfast in love,
loyal in omnipresence,
faithful to omnipotent powers,
all with regenerative intent.

Yet Eastern philosophers
look at these same healthy
empowering traits of Earth’s complex
regenerate nature,
and see,
and/or hear,
organically sense,
this universal enlightenment
unveils a metaphysical reality
of sacredly relentless Change.

God is as unchanging
as transient thoughts
and feelings of complex compassion,
responding to Nature’s strength
through flexibility,
unconstant evolution
through constant revolutions of Earth
and all Her interdependent Tribes,

Western patriarchal
capitalistic concern
about a changing God of love
and retributive justice
and unEarthly peace
in a rapturous Heavenly future
may include issues of confusion,
between Nature’s complex cooperative Relationality,
and secular Theories of Relativity.

If everything is relative
to everything else,
then morality,
safety of unchanging natural
and spiritual principles
become shifty,
potentially dissonant,
more than terrifically co-relational,
uniting through mutual flexibility
more than uniform
through unchanging orthodoxy.

But, Eastern nondualistic theory
is rooted in multicultural nonviolent experience
of fluid Relationality,
compassionate cooperativity
of constant win/win healthy natural change
which does not suggest nihilistic chaos
of space v time
or mass v energy

constant nuanced regenerative relationship
of time equals space-cubed proportionality,

Zero polyphonic energy
regenerating One
polypathic co-relational Universe

Naturally within
and spiritually surrounding
Earth’s constant/correlative
enlightening co-empowerment.
