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
and
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.
Finally,
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
monoculturing
swelling sticks,
thinking in Lose/Lose nihilistic
ecopolitics
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
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
cooperatively-owned
communion win/win properties
of multicultural mediation
through full-six sensory
non-violently felt communication
non-pungent
non-nasty tasting
non-aggressive touch
sound
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,
beauty
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
socks
sweaters
skullcaps
winter masks
with ear muff handles.

Eventually
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
compassionate
care giving as receiving.

Allies Toward Nirvana

Our Buddhist alllies,
co-immigrants
moving away from samsara,
like Abrahamic Westerners,
NorthWesterners
and MidWesterners
and East-West Earners,
emigrate toward nirvana–
secular illusion
evolving toward sacred enlightenment,
natural delusion
revolving into spiritual prelusion,

Yet we have this climatic problem
of pathology,
win/lose evil corrupting
ZeroSum energy systems,
power networks,
regenerative empowerment.

Genesis narratives
speak of empowering Eden,
then the Great Unraveling,
Win/Lose decay into samsara,
left-brain dissonant dominance,
Either EgoMe or eco-you,
RightBrain nirvana win/win recession
awaiting remission

Of a wise ecofeminist serpent
where lusty predation
revolted against God our PeaceCreator.

Like Unitarian–RightYin hemisphere–
Universalists–LeftYang-hemisphere–,
Taoists speak not of God as Creator
but of Tao as Regenerative Process
of Earth’s intelligent fractal seasons
reincarnated in DNA’s fractal functions,
double-negative paradox
double-binary primal Four Dimensions
of NonZero-Sum polypathic
neurological nirvana

Evolving from ZeroSum samsara
revolutioning
reverting back toward nirvana

Inhaling EarthJustice
exhaling EgoCentrism
evolving Restorative Justice
revolving AnthroCentrism

Absorbing samsara–
God of capitalism
God of retributive angry injustice
God of systemic racism
God of Yang v Yin
God of Left v Right
God of West v East
God of North v South

Reincarnating nirvana–
polypathic Regenerative Power
BiLateral Light
BiCameral Energy–

Neurological
Ecological
Biological
Geological
Theological cooperative branches
AND root nutritional systems
Revolutionary Win/Win
Meta-MusEcology
for all Allies toward Nirvana.

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.

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?

Turning Tides

She usually hears with her lungs.
He typically sees with his heart.

Until these two learn to take turns,
inhaling
then exhaling,
pumping in
then pumping out
primal ZeroSum communion,

She heard through ancient surfing memories.
He saw through future red and blue blood anticipations

Multiculturally redeveloping strength,
Polypathically relearning flow

Right with Left
East with West
SouthDorsal with NorthVentral
bipolar with dipolar
co-arising through co-gravitating
bicameral
bivegal
bilateral
wandering binomials,
polypathic left natural hearts
recapitalizing polyphonic right spirited lungs

Dancing EarthLife rhythms;
Singing HealthVoiced harmonics.

AzaRiah’s Earth Requiem

He was too old
to speak of active hope
for ancient creamy dreams
not yet boldly told

Inviting curious homeless nomads
to imagine what we could become
if we were not yet brazenly born
into this time of tragic burning,
flooding,
predicting hunger,
thirst
and coastal drowning nakedness.

Into this epic brown despair
AzaRiah was innocently born
within fading red shadows
of a crumbling
patriarchal
white cathedral.

She never knew an old Golden Era
of endless capital expansion
and monopolistic worship
defying GoldenRules
applied to those like her,
the least and blackest last
of Earth’s Golden SpaceTime Ratio.

AzaRiah’s stormy education
had no LeftBrain Ego v NotEco luxury
to ponder why 2D full moons
are also 4D revolving half-lit norms,

Why spatial nomials
predict temporal bilateral binomials,

Why positive polypaths
predict not not negative
polyphonic ultra-nonviolence,

Why binary Zero
fulfilling One bipolar Zone
predicts double-binary 0/1
wave-linear dipolar co-arising
win/win DNA resplendent Tone,

Why fractal-structured regenerativity
nativity predicts octave spiraling scales
of resonant
resilient non-degenerativity.

She was much too busy
singing with hurricane winds,
listening for flaming conflagrations
of reactionary hate,
inviting still small ecofeminist circles
to dance again with GrandMother Moon
in compassion’s silent storms,
self and other recreating
perpetual healthcare perception
reception

Belonging in grateful silence
where her grandfathers
spoke with terrified tears
of Earth’s great loud longing.

Sacred Discernment

Perhaps a way to turn
from failed
and often violent
retributive justice
to grab healthy hold
of restorative justice

Would ask,
What is this deep difference
between discerning judgment
and moralistic judgment?

To discern,
and not to condemn,
is mutually empowering
and not autonomously powering over another,
against all Others potentially suspicious,
falling short of my own godlike Mark,
Imprimatur,
Papal Seal of good personal housekeeping.

Moralistic judgment
is a win/lose game
always casting oneself
and one’s own
as protagonist,
self-righteous wise Prosecutor,
representing your State’s infinite not-listening Wisdom.

Discerning judgment
is a win/win game
of cooperative
co-invested compassion.

Discerning judgment
begins with listening for what we already share
in common point of view.

Moralistic judgment
seldom finds time
for such resonant celebration
in cooperatively-held sorrow
and joy,
personal defeat
and political triumph.

Active win/win discernment
bears more humbly in mind and heart and voice,
Do not tear apart
what we can’t put back together
again
and again
and again

As faithfully as healing sunrise
and therapeutic sunset;
As mysteriously
and curiously restoring moon rise
and resonant moon fall.

More Gadflies and HoneyBees

Gadflies
are not about group hugs.

Communion is more of a catholic honey bee paradigm
of win/win resonant satiation;
A winter seasonal anti-climax of body
but ecstatic dreamy democratic mind feeling
perpetual gratitude attitude,
safe ego
within this significant paradigmatic ecosystem
of compassion communication.

Gadflies are more about spring
and sometimes overwrought
over-heated climatic summer,
LeftWings tempted
by win/lose RightWing
LeftBrain dominant communication
competition
win/lose
either military-industrialized capitalism or corporate death
debate

And defensive
unsafe anxieties about chronically stressed economies
of capital-nutrition over-infestment,
political disempowering degeneration,
blind rabid faith prayers sacrificing costs
to be paid by future thirsty
drowning
burning
choking
starving
dying generations.

Gadflies
may not worry enough about death
of Earth’s global anthro-elite ecosystem,
too frantic with hungry
competitive need to ego-replicate.

Meanwhile,
honeybees gather pollen
for ecstatic winter’s
regenerative
warm sticky climax
eco-communion.
