Gifted Doorways

“Grief can be a doorway to love.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

Grief can open toward gratitude
As loss can open doors to access gain

As trauma can open hearts
to therapeutic brains

As neglect can foster curious compassion

As depression
can incite active
co-empathic impressions

As double negative sociopathologies
can notice doorways
to positive psychologies

As double-binding
dualdark entropy
can open space
for positive double-binary energy strings
of co-empathic
multiculturing time

As isolating sadness
can open doors
to love’s transcendent gladness.

Small Powers Everywhere

This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine

Wide and longing
for committed dialogue
not surrounded
by elitist debate,

Win/lose games,
Zero-sum asinine assumptions
requiring ego-infested shadows

Resisting win/win opportunities
of healthy
democratic dialogue

Between constituencies,
residents sufficiently humble
to become students together
and unschooled
unprofessional parents
and not totally enlightened teachers
and investigative staff
and neighborhood enquiry co-investors
in this democratic
nonpartisan
Thermos On Thames Experiment.

Where the School for Daily Integrity
hosts community resources
co-engaging win/win resolutions
producing cooperative educational opportunities
to practice
practice
compassionate praxis
nonviolent communication
to restore EarthJustice,

Where co-investors co-invite
contributions around ecofeminist friendly circles
just close enough for everyone
to hear all respected neighbors
who will not be Othered

Because we are learning,
through this pandemic of anxiety,
to anticipate more than climate floods
and fears,

Both risks
and opportunities,
dissonance
and resonance,
chaotic cacophony
and complex symphony
entrusting our capacity
for resilient health and safety
co-governance.

Not another negative
Business As Sadly Usual
competitive ZeroSum game
of wounded ego-survival
until some future small light day
still dimly hoping for big bright
ecosystemic
polycultural
multicultural win/win robust community

Co-mediation
co-operation
co-invested co-dominions
engaging spring EarthDay celebrations

Of locals feeling active hope
and mutually earned trust
predicting environmental ideas
for healing Earth’s injustices
blighting compassionate
nonviolent communication,
which would be more transparent,
risking tender lights
for growing better humored
kindness

Where silence of executives
administrators
managers
means they are deeply listening
for how we can empower each other
through heartfelt consent

And cold dark silence melts,
no longer resisting Truth
to continue postures
of professional
authoritarian
legalistic
quarterly profit-preserving business
without also recognizing long-term threats
of flooding rivers
and subzero icy windstorms.

Straight white patriarchal privileged
incorporated silence means resistance
to sharing inclusive powers
with autonomously dimming lights

Rather than unveiling
wide and bright kindness moving
away from monocultural
either/or debate,
repressing fears about surviving future floods
fears
and famine

Rather than inclusively hoping
to thrive
with good humored faith
in INTEGRAL MARKERS
of democratic health
calling for this circle
to embrace trust-rebuilding
co-empathic engagement

Feeding
and watering each individual’s strengths
and cooperatively held assets
rather than punishing our weaknesses
of fear and anger,
passive mistrust
and active distrust

Further afflicting executive professional disadvantage,
dissociations
dividing shadows
weapons for continuing
White Patriarchal privileged
and disempowered
and unenlightened
talking Heads of lined up Authority

Speaking down,
darkly withholding honest
well-lit encircling dialogue
about our shared health
interactive safety
compassionate wealth
anticipations through actively
engaging transparent dialogue

While sitting around our annual fire circle
celebrating songs and dances
of green ecofeminist healthy lights
inviting yet another safe spring thaw

Inspiring this engaging light of ours
to let our best divine co-dominion
co-investments shine.

LeftBrain RightWing Dominance

When reading
and singing
and dancing poetry,
enspiriting Earth’s choreography,
I need not check my LeftBrain dominance
at rhetoric’s RightWing healing door,

But bring PatriCapitalist Him with me
at least once more
to heal and restore

What EarthMothers wisely preach
and indigenously practice
and adore

No severance
between Earth’s natural systemic Truths
and Ego’s spiritual reanimation
restoring healthy EarthyBeauty
thriving
resilient abundance

By letting go
of peevishly competitive
LeftBrain dominantly domesticated
satiated
uneducated
about regenerative systemic design

And, thereby RightWing overgrown
predative
desecrating

Former sacredly healthy green climates
now more pathological
by over-petted Anthros
over-self invested,
Earth infesting pests

With voracious AnthroDivine appetities
of LeftBrain dominant parasites
preying on RightBrain prominent
EarthMother feminists

Who now lament,

“Straight White PatriCapitalists:
can’t resonantly love with’em,
can’t resiliently live without’em.”

Healthy Climate Culture

We are here
sexing
and singing
mindfulling our Perceptions and Questions
together in this now present
gifted Time

To eat and work together
for our cooperative
and ancient thriving health care,
of course,

But,
also,
and perhaps even more pre-historically
pre-anthrosupremacy,
to sing and dance together
to win/win play our root vibrant chakras,
and cooperatively think
by feeling together
sharing co-invested sacred wonders
and compassionately embodied awe,
of course,

And to embrace our EarthTribe sexuality,
our wild natural spirited climates
of climax and relax,
elapsed spacelessness
and relapsed time
of Yang and Yintegral
Heaven/Earth CoOperative Peace

Between ego Patriarchs
and ecosystemic Matriarchs,
transgenderal
multigenerational
regenerative democratic
organic organizing

Evermore sacred,
less merely secular sensory-neural systemic
LeftBrain verbalized reflections
transmutations
transfigurations
transcendent transubstantiations

Climax Yangish revolutions
of a sacred penetrating mountain
baptized in EarthPowered ecofeminist flow
of HereDivine/NowHumane
bilaterally resonant enlightenment
delight

For a global health/wealth
positively developing
unfolding
reweaving climate
of this
our politically correct time together
within Earth’s Great PolyCulturing Communion.

Touch the Earth, Reach the Sky

Touching Earth,
reaching sky.

I walk salt shores
where all Souls fly
over joy’s ocean,
under sad bad lands
my faith in quests
we could understand.

Touch this Earth
to feel our sky.

Wise fools ask
our reasons why,
In glad lives
our answers glow,
in sad love
we learn to grow

To heal our Earth
and teach this sky

We are born
while I shall die,
Life’s my time for in between,
to build you a star,
to chase our dream

Touching Earth
while feeling sky

Hugging laughter
feeds my cry,
May I see
what we can give
for future’s child
to sacred live

We touch this Earth
to reach light’s sky

Soaring courage,
healthy high,
All Souls joining
in Earth’s flight
to touch Her right
I reach through night
for love’s last
last
last splendid sight.

This variation on Grace Lewis-McLaren’s hymn  (#301, Singing the Living Tradition) is dedicated to All Souls-PlanetEarth, especially New London, on the occasion of our Great Return, September, 2021.

Stepping Out Migration

Regardless of culture,
of religion,
of national residency,
of hemispheric presidency,
of gender,
of sexuality’s vast pantheistic diversity,

When humans step out of our shelters
into a riotously gorgeous
and fresh
perfect warm sunshine breezy
natural day,
we feel positive healthy passion

Is what we have been needing
and what and/or whom
we are currently sacred graced
to feel and know timeless compassion.

Clear and pure passion
is reduced by inside
sensory-neural Doubt,

Win/Lose reductive
deductive anthro-privileged
LeftBrain distraction

As Win/Win compassion
is discounted by ZeroSum Divestment
away from Here/Now experience
resonating sacred rememories
of ancient healthy lifetimes past

As DisPassionate emigrations,
away from theological religious dogma monocultures
into ecological spiritual principled positive polycultures
embracing NonZero Zone emergence
opaquely dissipate Integrity’s therapeutic
sacred green
bicameral secular health
and sacred wealth
cooperative Win/Win potential

Inside AnthroVoice
Earth outside NonViolentChoice
CoPassion
is free of LeftBrain Doubt

As ComPassion

As DisPassion

Regardless of culture,

Earth’s great green diversity

Of ways to step together

Old Green Deals

When I sense a pathway
in between my mountain of narcissistic need
to control my relationships
and all my anthrosupremacist rivered lessons
cause-effect linear
verbal assumptions
with nonverbal consecutive resolving
and unresolved ambiguous feelings

Veering away from dark trauma
blue loneliness
and toward ego- and eco-therapies
of green abundance,

When I feel polyphonic harmony,
synergy between and within my interior biosystem

Deep listening,
and not digging for control,
even eventually,
settling in for perpetual unconditional co-control
both/and nuancing interdependent co-investment,
enlightened co-empowerment
empowering win/win resolutions
of thoughtful conscious feelings,

Transparently rivered valleys
of neuro-sensory unvoiced
win/win resolving
solvent flowing return choice
soothing past win/lose sensory traumatic
in-between

Decisions for economic
Whole Systemic
pro-ecological
co-relational
multi-lateral solidarity
of animus mundi awe,

History encultured

unconditionally regarded,
esteemed sacred space

Of balanced

InBetween old and new
internal sensory rivers of feeling
win/lose anxious trauma
and environmental stress

And anticipating health
and felt wealth of ego/eco defensive
yang/yintegral safety
actively co-investing
in shared economic and pro-ecological,

original prime NonZero Zone,

Critical NonViolence Theory

Compassion does not speak in judgment;
at least not before sufficient listening
on the extending edge of gratitude.

Therapeutic sciences now speak
as one with inter-religious mystics,

That kindness
is physically and mentally therapeutic
for those who receive
and especially those who adeptly give,
facilitate,
mediate
mentor,
empower
while cooperatively enlightening.

While we readily see this bilateral correlation
of kind-therapy
and mean-pathology
when counseling couples
and quarreling kids
and mediating sometimes ancient
multigenerational family disputes,

We less often consider historical
and larger present day applications
to things like slavery
colonization
criminalization
patriarchalism
parochialism
evangelism
apartheid
white supremacy
homophobia
sexism
racism

Competitive capitalist drive to win/lose survive
without cooperative communion to win/win thrive

These utillitarian
punishing
competitive issues are all antithetical to kindness
of multiculturing communions,
to the exercise of healthy democratic communion,
to resiliently transgenerational wealthy communities

Where compassion seldom speaks
in win/lose evolving/devolving judgment,
and not before sufficient win/win
deep dynamic
revolutionary listening.

Engaging Green Integrity

Not competing he
Not fleeing me,
Meaning found
through womyn We,
swimming bicamerally.

Impatient exhale lost,
curious slow-grown inhale gained.

Meaning found
in liberty
gaining win/win energy
as tangible as CapitalHeaded currency,
not autonomously
but interdependently
full-flowing integrity,
synergy.

Denial lost,
engagement gained.

Capital gains
empty with hoard rotted grains
fouled against a wet
sweat polluting air
of unfair drought
consuming future health investments

Perilous for mere
more anthrosupremacist consumers
of vanishing climate comforts

Like health care
wealth of cooperatives
steeped in synergy’s Win,
green in digenous organs
of cooperating natural
yet spiritual infrastructure
absent corrupting hierarchical sin,

Co-investing in
nonviolent intersectional communication
restoring multi-polycultures,
natural cooperative systems
eco-theological
spawning nature’s most spiritual communion

Drenched in digenous DNA’s
health wealthy engaged
enlightening
empowering
integrally interdependent
polypathic
bilateral optimizing
health systemic
wealth of meaning-filled
binomial design

Not so much by He,
Not just freely autonomous ego Me,

Meaning found
through yintegral health-yanging We,
bold integrity unfolding
bicamerally.
