Last night I dreamed.
sometimes too athletically,
viral, positive and negative
and in-between sub-climax performing some wins and some perpetual losses
more ambiguously back and forth, up and down, in and out,
and not nearly sensual enough–
Full through new moon great transitions
of climates black and brown deaths mattering
and terrifyingly splattering,
grey-scaled and white
and green despite
and transparent integrity
defying opaque mendacity
to show our hypocratic heads,
capital Lose to Lose infestments.
In last night’s dream
my mentor, Tenzin Gyatso
invited me to read his book
Beyond Religion aloud to him,
front to back,
left to right,
in my own English words,
my own healthy and toxic experiences,
green through ultra-violent red,
white nationalist entitlement,
and blue patriarchal patriotic
1950’s cultural flag-waving
about this new super scientific ZeroCentric messianic millennium
This left me with a whole lot of How and Why questions.
My LeftFactual Brain was screaming about deductive obsessions
in alternating dissonant pain
and blind faith defensive denial and boredom.
Mentor Tenzin seemed in no mood
to accept NoThanks! for my RSVP,
nor even Not-Right-This-Minute, please?
As I began to read beyond scientific polycultural religion,
s/he closed his eyes
and continued with his/her smile.
I think s/he likes this book
on sacred multiculturing healthy climate sciences
and neurosensory green peace research.
for a Tibetan immigrant
homelessly schooled and exiled in India–
Longing for a First WesternWorld urbane ecology
Originally belonging within a 3rd brown MotherEarth culture
born of Buddhist health and pathology eco-homeschooled education.
So I began near his Introduction’s top,
inviting us to
Look back over past homeless
and despised alien decades
against brown-skinned people,
to still find resilient reasons for healthy enchantment.
Through secular science advances,
some problematic social and economic and politically viral toxins
are slowly decomposing.
Tenzim opens his eyes,
as is his/her normal enchanting constitution,
and asks me to back up,
start at his earlier beginning
into the Genesis of Acknowledgments
for each past reader’s resilient wisdom.
And so I backed up
to continue forward:
It is my sincerely active hope
what is climate and cognitive researched here
in however small a cooperative-ownership way,
to building a more resiliently regenerate
and more polypathically green peaceful Earth.
Of course we are not secularly or sacredly changing Earth’s health trends overnight.
And we will not WinWin change WinLose global culture
with a short essay
or even a longish and ancient multicultural humane divine scripture.
Climate health comes gradually
through increased cooperative sanctuary ownership,
Responsible whole-system green values
will only become EarthPatriotic belonging
with WinSecular/WinSacred cooperative systems research re-education.
If each naturalLeft and spiritualRight reader
finds any co-relational integrity written and lived here
to be of resilient being and resonant doing health benefit,
then our cooperative enterprise and co-investments
will have been secular and sacred wellness rewarded
with inside as outside regenerate wealth.
A scientific nature
diassociated from religious spirit
is a fundamentally wrong reading of divinely inspired experience,
without immediate or long-term health benefit.
Such readers should not dissonantly feel any Right MindBody awkwardness
about graciously and lovingly setting this secular/sacred essay aside
while waiting for your personal enlightenment Rapture
rooted in climate anxiety
and violent EarthTribe unnatural dismemberment,
and other miscellaneous disassociative denials
of WinWin organic integrity
co-arising resilient external light-preferential systems.
the 14th Dalai Lama
opened his/her sensory-focused eyes
and invited me to set Beyond Religion aside,
to rewrite my own healthier and more inviting green rapture essays,
to WinWin facilitate our own collection of healthy communion stories
for climate resilient wealth enhancement journeys,
primate pilgrimages toward first non-violent democratic choices
cognitively within as socially and ecologically without,
ultra-nonviolet below as green above,
ecstasy YinFlow enchanting YangForm,
sacred religion experiencing secular health-science integral outcomes,
RightBrain understory values
co-arising LeftDominant nutritional history
of multiculturing ethics,
re-creating green communion stories,
ZeroZone cognitive soul-development
advocating for more resilient
WinWin resiliently nurturing non-violent climate systems.
