Freedom Requires Peace

Ecological relationship
forms theological and ego-logical minds,
both omnipresently transcendent
and intimately eco/ego-political;

Both enlightening
and empowering

Earth justice
from interdependent EarthTribe peace
toward cooperatively invested freedoms
for compassion
both right hemisphere inclusive feelings
and left hemisphere deductive thoughts,
reductive-inductive;

Both ecosystemic Beauty
and ego-recentering Truths;

Multiculturally co-passionate,
non-violently communal,
restoring theological peace
as ecologically balanced justice

Where life becomes peaceful medication
love is freedom’s EarthSoul meditation.

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.

Half Conscious

She was half listening
to a Tibetan male philosopher.

He spoke in timeless wise prose
impressed
by suppressed
Western natural theories of mind.

She heard repressed
Western timely spiritual experiences
of sensual sensory bodies.

He sang lyrically
of cultural vocations
perpetually turned toward enlightenment.

She spoke rationally
of permacultural designs
systemically perpetuating
healthy democratic empowerment.

He thought about natural
multicultural mindfulness
as time’s seamless spatial integrity.

She felt sublime
within polycultural
spiritual embodiment
of Earth’s revolving
co-passionate
nutritional
nurturing synergy.

He was half speaking
to a Western ecofeminist theologian.

Wounded Integrity

Inspired, in part, by the neurological insights of Iain McGilchrist and the polycultural outcomes of Permaculture Design for a healthier-wealthier Earth, and the polyphonic healing potential of restorative justice systems, and the peace potential for non-violent communication, internal and external.

To totally trust Earth invites
no one perfectly correct health path

Suggests we will find no wealth path
totally corrupt.

To commit to our best way
for healthy now
in this quasi-wealthy place
and this RealTime,
with resources accessible
may be irredeemably wrong
only in our potential
for egotistic excesses,
ego-mania
non eco-woman Earthy enough.

Polypathic balance,
polyphonic harmony,
polynomial integrity,
polymorphic bilateral intelligence;
these are the love
and faith
and hope
and wisdom
of revolutionary compassion
for ourselves
as part of EarthOther

Forgiven climate trespassers
as we forgive
our inhumane ecological debts

Empowering further ego-recentering
in curious pathway nonjudgment
by patiently enlightening,
choice enlivening–

Past Yang left-brain autonomous,
Future Yin right-hearted interdependent–

Ego/Eco-systemic experience,
bilateral balancing memory,
healing compassion’s doubled
yet untroubled image.

 

Summary note from deepest and most repressed chakra voice:  Some of us are penises, homo and hetero, some of us are vaginas, cooperative and competitive, but all of us are equal in being assholes, with potential for pollution and for fertilization.

I Have A Son

I have a son
who worries

His economic vocation
requires a political vacation
from the rest of us
and perhaps even light of sun

Which hardly feels sustainable
or resonant
and certainly not win/win resilient.

I have a son
so brilliant
he could choose to hunt
and gather shopping carts
at Walmart

And find a way
to help shoppers feel
he is vacationing
with
and for all of us.

I have a son
whose most visible mistake
is believing his anger and fear
stem from missing invitations
to enter his one true
politically correct
and socially esteemed
vocation

As if any employment
he could embrace
would not become more sacred
by his warm communication,
cooperative invitation,
profound sublimation,
ecosystemic renunciation
of fear
to make wrong
ego-uncentering annunciation
articulation
of what he means
by joining in
with this multiculturing humane race

Of confusing
competitive and cooperative
eco-political pace.

Healing BodyMinds

After Yang’s struggle
suffering
seismic seizures

Dawn’s Yin’s peace
restoration
expansion
without grasping
even life v death

Before Yang’s next struggle
suffering
seizure
battling ego’s timeless absence

Like Left hemisphere’s
embodied dominance,
shadow subject
of objective dreams

Then Right hemisphere’s energy prominence,
bilateral compassion;

Yang’s ego-natural body
reincarnating Yin’s primordial
eco-spirited mind

Where polynomial 1
seizes 0
to make polypathic 1,
and not not reproducing polyphonic 0,
and every revolving
spiraling
hypersuasive tipping point
in-between

HolyWinded Spirit’s Earthly journeys–
Wealthiest introspection
for healthiest extraspection;
atomic images
becoming shivered waves.

Visiting the Buddha

We were visited by a baby
yesterday.

It felt good to bow
into her glittery brown eye level,

To speak of whatever came to mind
which was mostly about her truth
and blossoming beauty

Knowing she would not judge
and would listen
patiently
as long as I might care
to continue our song
of aging story.

Her response,
to continue sleeping
or to smile
while feeling
feeding eye to eye
mutual warmth

This is what I remember
wanting most
to speak about,

To remember
on this Memorial Day

Visited not yet by a victim
of war
but by a wise innocent
for peace.
