Distancing Communication

Distancing communication
seems like an oxymoron,
like dissonant communion.

My ego center speaks communication
while my organic systemic body listens
for communion

Discerning what feels confluent,
resonant with ecological
health is wealth
EarthTribal indigenous experience

AND what feels like aggressive,
possibly predative,
lose/lose DIScommunication
distressed communication
dissonant noise
dissociative distancing,
sometimes ominously silent
dormant
terminal absence
of verbal communication

AND what feels like dualistic
win/lose MIScommunication,
missed cooperative win/win opportunity
too Either my way
Or hit the highway
competitively risky,
too egocentric
too anthrosupremacist
too StraightWhiteMale privileged
too LeftBrain verbally dominant
too lacking co-passion,
too unwoke,
but feeling more like ignorance
than lose/lose malignant
despairing
pathological intent
to DIScommunicate.

My ecosystemic body feels
Trust in win/win active hope,
DIStrust for surviving lose/lose despair,
economic and ecological degeneration,
MIStrust of win/lose monoculturing monopolies
monotheistic
monochromatically anthrosupremacist

Preachers
and teachers
of pure white
bright paternalistic capitalism
as Earth’s only way
truth
life toward healthy salvation.

Trust breeds neuro-systemic integrity.
DIStrust feeds overwhelming feelings
of violently weaponed despair.
MIStrust of win/lose
either/or
LeftBrain dominant thinking
not compliant with ecologically healthy experience
is, on my best feeling days
and peace dreaming nights,
a therapeutic opportunity tool
for responding to health risk trauma.

Dissing Economic-Ecological GreenResonance

Why does this resonance of love,
lovely resonance,
feel so complexly complicated
to achieve?

Complicating,
complicit in felt imperfection

While red hot hate
burns resiliently,
remains pure
and uncomplicated,
unnuanced,

Vengeance is Mine!
bright as red anger
smoldering in cold
black coal fear
of perfect disregard,
contempt,
judgment,
shaming blame
unequivocal unilteral conviction

I was right
to never truly love
in that unredeemed
leftist win/win compassionate
Not Right RedBlooded win/lose
competitively traumatic
capitalist-patriarchal
monotheistic punishing way

Of anthrosupremacist survivalist sway,
HuMan MonoCulture Yang, LeftBrain dominant
dissonantly against
EarthMother PolyCulture Yintegrity,
RightBrain prominent EarthTribal
interdependent living systems
unraveling out in partisan bipolar directions

CoArising dipolar dynamic
four seasonal

Breathing in polypathic Taoist erections
of bicameral body/mind co-governing projections
for feeding
and watering public/private health

living sacred double-binary

Joy/Integrity body health
is green mindwealth safety systemic,
neuro-systemic win/win optimization,
and eco/theologically cooperative

Which may be why
does this resonance of love,
lovely resonance,
sound so complexly complicated
to achieve?

And feels impossible
not to fully co-invest
despite considering
all the LeftBrain dominant facts
of Earth’s eventual mortality.

Consuming Compassion

Natural compassion,
like unnatural hate,
is left hemisphere teachable
and right hemisphere contagious.

Perhaps also like hate
(fortunately I know less about this
journey in misfortune)
compassion cannot mature
through merely didactic reasoning,
words,
thoughts
devoid of healthy
safe feelings

Positive communication experience
commitment
integrity

Nurturing
and nutritional support

Nature’s cooperative respite
into nondualistic peace,
resonantly non-anxious safety

A lifetime environmental healthy
guarantee
that I will notice,
respect,
attend to,
anticipate moments when alone
to fill with imaged complex solidarity
rather than emptying
into dark silent apartheid,
despairing manic loneliness,
uncomfortable forced separation,
segregation,
severance.

Compassion
grows from infant attachment
into childhood appreciation,
puberty’s struggling acceptance
flaring into peaks of passion,
adolescent sympathy
for EarthTribes left behind
and out
and under
and away
and fractured by neglect

Of history,
culture,
religion
healthy and impassioned sexuality

Marginalizing into unstable labels
of Either Us Or Them
eco-political competitions,
divisions,
polarizations
of what MotherEarth
wove
wombed
birthed together

For mature
adult
healthy and safe
EarthTribal empathy

Which,
when felt and known,
seen and heard,
touched and smelled
as uniting co-empathy,
we deeply feel
and wide-culturally speak
of integrity’s mystery

Sacred,
wondrously overwhelming,
awesomely unspoken underwhelming
steadfastly anticipating
timelessly stable
strong yet flowing
co-passionate communion.

Prayer Stories

Who we pray to,
what we worship,
these are less important
than what we worship with,
whom we pray with,
and never against.

Yet, who we pray with
feels less important
for global peace
and restoring Earth’s great
timeless justice,
than whom we refuse
to pray with,
and sometimes,
on our worst days,
insist on judging against

And whom we have
never crossed a highway
or mine field
to pray with
is more important
to personal health
and Earth’s wealth
than whom we are willing to pray for
only from a safe distance,
and only on our most charitable days,
generously impassioned nights.

How we pray
with mouth
mind
heart
sensory body
hungry gut
passionately rooted soul,
psalms and chakras
of deliberating
dialogical sound,

This primally matters
in reproductive relationship
co-arising animus mundi
in anima prayers
with and from indigenous
wisdom for and below
above deep
and wide humanity’s
best divine prayers

Passion stories
of how active prayer
embraces intimate narratives
of spacious
sacred
solidarity

Rooted in knowing
who we pray to
remains timelessly less important
than whom we intimately
compassionately play with,
and never against.

Hedonistic Hate

When we compare the numbers
and percentages of innocent,
trusting lives lost
in significant part because of Christian
militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic judging fundamentalism,
punishing Afghanistan
and other Islamic cultures
over the past four or five decades,

To the number
and percentage of innocent
economically and politically trusting lives
lost in significant part
because of Moslem militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic vengeful fundamentalism,
punishing the U.S.
and other NorthWestern Christian cultures

The outsized scale of human
and environmental casualties
in Afghanistan
does not redeem Bin Laden’s terrifying success
on 9/11.

But, this difference in chronic ballistic stress
does suggest why
a well-capitalized terrorist
was able to garner so much economic
and political support
from those already too familiar
with sudden
tragic
violent losses of family
and friends
on 9/11.

This is not to say U.S victims
and non-victims (should there be any)
asked for vengeful death
nor deserved such tragic
excruciating loss,

But
these same losses
may remind us
we, as a democratically healthy
responsible wealthy nation,
a polycultural society,
could have listened with more extensive
bilaterally compassionate ears
and mass mediated eyes,
to the rapacious horror,
loss,
trauma,
fear,
anger,
hate,
chronic anxiety,
post- and pre-traumatic stress disorder

Perpetuated by militarized
capitalized
patriarchal
monotheistic
dogmatic
RightWing
LeftBrain dominant privilege
elitism
supremacy
autistic autocracy
greedy kleptocracy
dissociative denialism

Doubt in cooperative polycultural powers
of global compassion
love
active and provoking hope,
healthy trust in win/win resolutions.

Curious UnChosen Gifts

To my StraightWhiteMale
right-wing
left-brain
monoculturally dominating brothers,
and your antifeminist glamorous
amorous womanly allies,

You have not yet heard me,
if you only hear my resistance,
sharing my non-culpable experience
with non-choice of gender attraction
and gender identity.

It’s not only that my queer gender identity
is not my fault,
because not my choice;
but also my gender identity
and sensory-neural attachments, as also true of yours,
are my sacred gift.

CoArising identity and CoGravitating attraction ,
like awareness and consciousness,
are not just heavy social responsibilities,
but also enlightened
and empowering opportunities.

We’re not legitimately known by who
or what
we hate and hurt;
But we can be redeemed by who
and what
we love and heal.

We may have no more choice
about who
and what
and when
and where
and why
and how we love,
than choice to respond with awe and wonder,
or boredom and disdain,
to Earth’s natural enspiriting Beauty

Of dawn
and dusk,
spring
and autumn,
ocean
and mountain
restorative reconnections

Which feel both Healthy
and True,
of the deepest
and highest
and yet safest resilient
and resonantly robust multicolored wealth
of nonchoiced
unfaulted gifting grace.

DeathChoice VaticanVoice

Dear Bishop Michael Cote, Doctor of Divinity
through pre-historic untold ages
through reborn renaissance stages
through industriously energetic praises
through enlightenment phases
through empowerment dysphasia

Some of us lesser health care practitioners,
good faith social workers,
teachers,
parents and grandparents,
uncles and aunts,
and ecofeminist inter-religious allies
of LGBTQ souls

Working with, not judging against,
supporting, not hate-crime creating,
helping up, not knocking down,
faithful to God’s multicultural
polyculturally robust EarthCreation,

Are hoping you will let the Vatican know
we can no longer support Roman Catholic
xenophobic
homophobic
sexphobic
non-elite caste-phobic dogma
traditions of elitist patriarchal apartheid.

We can no longer support Vatican Teachers
Preachers
WitchDoctors
Superstitious Fear and AngerMongers,
Western-Roman White Male Supremacists,
financially or emotionally,
naturally or spiritually,
ecologically or theologically.

Our LGBTQ sacred experience
of healthy LifeCulture wealth
does not classify same gender erotic feelings
and other mutually collaborative eco-political actions
as Sin,

As absence of robust virtue,

As missing the mark of multicultural communion,
regenerative Creation’s healthiest fertile wealth.

We further hope you might enlighten us,
especially those of us already among Rome’s
faithful sanctified,
Those already recognized throughout church history
as essential GodSent saints,
bishops,
archbishops,
deacons,
cardinals,
popes,
crusaders,
missionaries,
monastics,
celibates,
contemplatives,
mystics,
moral ethicists,
church attorneys,
ecclesial accountants,
sacred property administrators,
liturgical planners,
collegiate through preschool teachers,
priests who are
and have been
and will be born
and have been born again
in living lesbian waters
gay flowers
bisexual plants
queer pansexuality
transgender
polygender non-binary,

Each with a unique
GodCreated narrative
that includes no more or less sexual orientation choice
than does your own story,
presumably 100% heterosexual nonchoice,
inherited,
gifted,
graced.

Why is minority,
non-elite,
suffering servant status
not part of the VaticanTeaching
healthy GodCreation story?

Why is unconscious desire
to defy valued heterosexual norms
by masking deeply subconscious
economic and political suicide choices
a pre-pubescent sinful development
at a time of relentlessly rooted
economic health and political safety choices
essential to your own
absence of non-heterosexual spiritual
natural experience?

Why are conscious grace-filled fruits
of honest
transparent
vulnerable
integral
compassionate
loving desire for multiculturally healthy EarthCommunion
not among
your taught synonyms
for divine blessing of poor in spirit
disenfranchised by aggressive patriarchal nature
disempowered in ecological
system-balancing knowledge
unenlightened about systemic theological
hierarchical
monocultural

Is less co-operatively holistic
than inter-faith re-ligioning
reconnections,
polycultural holy communions,

Not so red Roman patriarchal
celebrating green humane/divine matriarchal
lilies of the fields
meadows
green pastures,
integrity of LifeCulture’s natural/spiritual potential

To transmogrify organic elements
of our passion
power
light
as God’s true and beautiful
humane/divine
multiculturally pleasing
Saints

And monoculturing sinners, all,
but not through lack of discipling Earth’s HealthIntegrity
by having chosen
to become non-heterosexually erotic,
exotic,
non-normative,

Nor having ever chosen to non-elite risk
in exchange
for health/wealth heterosexual reproductive
eco-political hegemony

StraightWhiteMale patriarchal empowerment
and exclusively sacred
anthro-privileged enlightenment

Intolerant
of any sexual/sensory sin
certainly not accepting inclusive eros enfranchisement,
nor ever sacredly esteeming non-elite sensory empowerment,
instead excommunicating our most holy enspirited
experiential communions

Transubstantiating mediating communicators
supposedly created to support
empower
enlight us
as God chose to gracefully make
all Earth’s regenerative LifeGiving PolyCultures

Working and playing win/win together
throughout catholic
multicultural Church History
of queer saints
male-secretary infatuated popes
pansexual Psalmists
LGBTQ ecclesial teachers and lawyers and financial officers
translators
academics

And extended ecofeminist
Holy Green Spirit ecologists
holonic catholic economic
ecosystemic
ChristianCreation theologists
reflecting on God’s angelic alliances
transubstantiating experiential communion
of LGBTQ Saints and Lovers
and Extended HolyFamily
remembered and long forgotten
Elders among us
on this Epiphany of AllSaints EarthDay.

Please advise False VaticanTeachers
we are unwilling to continue co-investing
in Patriarchal Sin
because MulticultureCreatorGod
does not invest in,
does not bless,
sins of omitting
Earth’s own health wealthy King/Queendom
at Left/Right Hand
bilaterally transubstantiating
experiential InterFaithed Culture communion

Restoring healthy EarthJustice
by not continuing to invest
in unwealthy StraightWhiteMale dominant ignorance,
sin
and superstition

As if CreatorGod/Dess
looked and sounded
communicated and communioned
unsubstantiated thoughts and feelings
appropriate to a foolishly Naked

Red Green and Blue

Red grows politically angry
about wealthy society’s conspiracy
to keep my ego away
from health’s abundant wealth.

Blue spreads out
economically fearful of anger’s power,
my own loss of leftbrain control,
most times less,
sometimes more
than terrifying competitive victory,
unhealthy monopolization
of light and power,
wealth accumulated
by neglecting
postponing
preempting HaveNot wishes,
accelerating Earth abusive investments
of a powerful
and punishing
highly narcissistic
inhumane
pissed off
judgmentally quivering society,
blatantly unsustainable.

Green ecological relationships
remain hopeful
the conjunction of two polarizing
paralyzing negatives,
anger and fear,
like two negatives
equaling a positive,
will produce healthier wealth,

Not more political envy
and economic greed;
but heavenly peace
and nonviolent EarthJustice.

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.

Strategic Ignorance

The best preventative and remedial antibiotic for narcissism,

whether internal or external, or both,

is to strategically ignore their aggression.

Do not feed or water bullies.

Pretend you cannot see or hear or even smell them,

and those parts of yourself,

internal voices,

most predative.
