Dividing Island Nations

In a sense
each person capable of understanding these words
and those who speak diverse languages together
are island nations
splitting in two
by love
or fear
or both.

I have been concerned about the U.S. island of fundamentalist Christians,
formerly part of the One Creolizing Body of Christ,
now morbidly fascinated by fundamentalist Muslims,
as if they were each and all patriarchal elitists
terrorized by Holy JustWar Christians
who tend to vote Republican,
to further their religious missionary freedom
to deny moral equity to other natural-spiritual experiences
on other islands.

Republicans are increasingly AntiChristian Totalitarian
islands spreading across formerly restorative-therapeutic Earth,
interdependent health in a deep sacred ecological wealth sense,
sensory awareness
consciousness
throughout islands which lovingly remain profoundly and radically regenerative,
revolutionary in a PositivEnergy Polyphonic Way.

More Paradise Island
than rabidly exploitive of growing capital value inequities.
More pro-nutritional ecology,
healthy economic co-investments of all life forms,
energy functions and systems and island networks.

Paradising Islands invest for wealthy personal-political restorative exchanges
of justice through peace
for islands making love and not so much aggressive totalitarian control-seeking
over other morally inferior islands
reduced to mere subservient commodities.

Paradise is more gratefully embraced by Wise Elders
of all multicultural islands
than is Westernized commodification
of Business As Usual capital exploitation
of drowning dividing islands.

AgriBusiness extractions of commodities,
like FossilEnergy withdrawals of deep rich value,
come to us
by way of colonizing capitalism’s WinLose models
projecting further devolutionary games
between divided island nations.

But extractive norms for growing Earth’s capital
came from older orthodoxies,
more sacredly and therapeutically held fundamental models
of Earth’s restorative peace
rooted in ego-ecojustice.

Growing resilient and sustainable capital,
whether you are just another divided island, one Ego,
or also the Superintendent of HealthCare Schools,
or just a teaching or parenting island,
or the CEO of a global conglomerating island,
the chief administrator of a community,
the head poobah of a faith community,
the leader of a pack of predative wolves
or a gaggle of migrating geese,
cannot long prevail through colonizing predations
extractions from less empowered island commodities.

Resilient and reweaving Paradise Islands
are made of and for restoring secular-sacred SynergyLove,
within and between EarthTribe islands.

WinWin here and now choices,
bordering polypathic questions of changing healthy time,
are our multiculturing GoldenRule default.

Restorative justice norms,
not retributive just and holy war retributions,
pre-empt and preclude
ongoing fascinations with fundamentalism’s zealous colonizing missionaries
and terrorists
harvesting God’s BadNews commodities,
now giving grateful cooperative way
to creolizing revolutionary Great Restorative Transitions,
polypathic but also anciently orthodox,
patently ecological health
over retributive punishments of hell
in both after life
and current dividing island life of dying fear
and magic anti-historical fascinations
with Revelationary Second Comings.

Personal budgets, economic and political investments,
empowerment planning,
like school budgets
and municipal budgets
and state budgets,
are best balanced through restoring active love’s cooperative therapies
for all island nations.

Sadly, deficit budgets and anti-ecological planning
are least resiliently balanced
through further extending extractive competitions
against Earth and Her SacredTribes,
growing debt with shrinking island nation hope
for restoring healthy economic futures.

Retributive injustice is against commodified EarthIsland,
where once grew
the late great WinWin
deep learning
ecological root systems,
primal notnot (0)-Core-Sum-Commons relational
co-arising ego-eco equity,
co-investments of Paradise Island Love,
Divine Grace,
Secular/Sacred Karma,
restorative ecopolitics
of and for healing Paradise Islands.

Red and Green Christians

Let’s start with a fundamental flaw of fundamentalist fake-Christianity,
a literary flaw within literal non-interpretation of historical creation
and sacred development.

This is true of radical jihadist Moslims as well,
although we both know you think you’re more special
and politically and morally correct,
so, we can stay focused
on Christian evangelical faith communities
in the United States,
especially in Red-dominant States.

True
effective
pure
loyal
faithful
integrated
mature Christian conservators of God’s peace and divine love justice
must stop interpreting the words and teachings
and moral-sexual code for healthy v pathological activities
as if JesusChrist had a dualistic view of Spirit,
of Abba
or of human nature as a whole
separated from Earth’s nature,
and as if He lived within a Trinitarian GodHead metaphysical Universe
without a JesusChrist humane-divine nondual Body.

If you truly have the faith of a mustard seed
that JesusChrist taught and lived
in a nondual humane-divine MindBody,
then this explicitly invites us to consider nonduality,
both divine spirit
and humane sacred
conjoining this interdependent Body of Christ
on Earth.

When Jesus says
Why do you worry about stupid stuff
because God made sacred flowers too
and which of you
is arrayed with that much festive splendor,
that diversity of color and beauty and Grace,
a truly Christian evangelist of this nondual teaching,
would not respond with:

“Oh, right,
but that’s just generic secular natural organisms
and physiological development processes,
but not about how God the Creator Father
arrays humanizing nature.”

That separation of Earth’s natural systems
from sacred humanizing spirits
you will not find in Jesus’ words or teachings
or metaphysical code
or moral v immoral law and order of restorative grace.

Although Trinitarianism,
and the dualism separating
Holy Spirits against secularizing Fallen nature
and patriarchal economic and political aristocratic-plutocratic dominance
against matriarchal EarthMother planters and harvesters,
those annoying motherly nurturing issues,
were alive and well
when Roman Catholic St. Jerome
was playing eeny, meany, miserly moe
with sacred stories
and parables
and poetry
and history of God’s inspiring voices,

And dualistic competitive assumptions were still there,
only now starting to military-industrialize
the entire complexion of intriguing inspiring voices
for Holy Wars and Crusades
when the newer King James Interpretation of sacred history,
literature and stories,
parables,
crucifixions,
baptisms,
violence,
sickness and disease,
floods and holocausts,
wars and burning cities with innocent children included
came into your evangelical dualistic minds
and shared fundamentalist culture of Red.

So what?
you have probably already asked.

With this error,
with this lack of personal
and political
and economic integrity,
you have harmed me,
and you have probably insulted my evangelical Christian mother,
who raised me to love
as deeply and widely
as Jesus nondually loved all Earth,
all Earth’s polycultural and multicultural diversity,
as part of one already redeemed
interdependent Body of Grace.

Grace is for those who just say Yes to love
wherever we see love invited,
one arrayed with God’s love,
with CreatorGod’s relationship with each hair
on each head,
with constantly counting all those drab, yet sacred, sparrows,
and wherever hairs are to be even most inconveniently found.

To believe otherwise,
that this sacred reign of God
on this Earth
in this time of Great Transitional Climate Change
is to interpret the words and teachings of JesusChrist
as if He did not mean them literally
of nature as spirit
and spirit as nature.

That he did not literally mean
He invites us to replace addiction to deadly blood sacrifice politics
with a cooperative economy of grace,
Earth as nondual gift,
life as fundamental gratitude
for those natural and spiritual arrayed gifts
available for eyes that see,
ears that hear.

As available as universal baptism of living waters
flowing through our veins
feeding and nurturing even the flowers
with their most festive arrays
and those drab sparrows
and all that inconvenient hair,
even when teased and bleached
to near extinction.

You have harmed me
in a way that forces you to see me
as a person who chose to become sinfully gay,
while actually having been born sacredly heterosexual.

I know this is not true about me,
or about any person with a gender preference
I have ever known
well enough to ask them:

Did you choose to be, whatever?
When did you choose to become, whatever?
Would you still be you
if the prepubescent you
had chosen to become otherwise?
Did it ever even occur to you
that you had a choice
of whom to find attractive
in either an erotic or agapic way?

If you had been given a choice,
If God came down from Heaven
maybe even in a dream
and said,
“OK, it’s time to choose,
those hairs are about to emerge from new places,
Who won this battle?”
How could you choose
to exchange the gifts you were conceived with?

So now,
if you’re following this most unlikely hypothesis
of gender identity choice,
If I didn’t choose this,
then I was recruited
by my very much happy heterosexual
evangelical fundamentalist Christian parents.

Even my evangelical Christian older brother and sister,
and my Unitarian Universalist younger sister,
who agree on not much,
will all tell you
that this recruiting thing
did not happen to me.

My older siblings
are in this sad position,
Either I chose to become homosexually perverse,
deliberately choosing a life of sin,
ostrasization
criminalization
victimization,
despite all persuasive evidence of everyone I trusted and loved
during my pre-adolescent years,
or there is a dualistic interpretation of JesusChrist’s words and teachings
that they have assumed was actually there in scripture,
but in fact they falsely believe is there
because they have been religiously indoctrinated
to deny their own spiritual-historical experience
of grace.

To deny our own histories
and herstories of truth,
loyalty to sacred integrity of our internal natural
and external spiritual
sacred climates of loving healthy love
with hating pathologically competitive hatreds.

Restorative healing grace
invites economies of polyculturing love
and these are not to become confused with
retributive justice politics
of dualistic injustices and war-
and hate-mongering.

Imagine growing up in a world
where Jesus taught you must grow up into mature polysexuality
and this was accepted and presumably experienced as true
by all you loved and trusted
except you,
hopelessly heterosexual only.

We would sing
“Onward Christian Soldiers
marching off to war…”
and you would worry
how you might possibly stay under range
of our automatic rifle fire.

That is the harm you have brought to me
through not believing in the nonduality of Earth’s Matriarchal Nature
and God’s Holy Spirit
as per the literal nature-spirit teachings
and parables of JesusChrist.

And this is the retributive monotheistic harm
you have brought into this Nation’s sacred patriotic commitment
to protect and conserve grace-arrayed beauty and health
of this Mother Land
and all of Earth’s sacred interdependent multicultures
of internal
and for external
climates of health
through less competitive dualistic pathologies.

All are invited to restore justice and peace
to turn away from OldSchool retributive injustice
and not-so-divinely inspired violence,
to vocations of healing
and not for judgments against others,
as if any one way of becoming
were not replete with multiculturing truth
and polypathic nondual sacred loves.

Imagine you were born into a RedState
where only you could see in full color,
but you have read experiences of GreenStates
in full polycultural glory.
Would you believe God is calling you
to punish all those who could only see in black and white?
Or inviting you to restore your RedState
to GreenState Traditional Arrays of Grace?

Mustard Seed Paradise

Fundamentalists
Evangelists
Jihadists
HolyWar and Final Judgment and RoughLove Advocates
against infidels and other, more domesticated, sinners:

Put down your Bibles and Korans,
written to grow love
and not weapons for bleary-eyed bullies.

You spend too much time reading and thinking
and arguing
to let your spiritual emotions swell and grow love.

Instead,
pick up a small recycled brown paper bag
of healthy
fertile
organic mustard seeds.

Learn faith with them,
that together you might grow
to know
this radiant reign of God’s Eternal Light and NonDual Dark.

Plant them into Advent darkness,
care for them,
water them
and not the tarish tearing weeds
of envy and supremacy,
hypocrisy and punishing misjudgment,
superstition
and hope for antiEarth anti-logical magic,
nightmares and violence,
anger and fear-mongering,
Old Testament blood sacrifices
and enslavement to false fascist idols
as if these were large enough
to contain the wisdom of one regenerative mustard seed,
sprouting radiant love for God’s sun
and Mother Earth’s baptismal waters,
fueling our shared root restorative ecosystem.

Harvest these therapeutic cultures of health
and gratitude
and grace,
make spicy brown mustard with them.
Serve to and from your students
and children
and mentees
on homemade 7-Grain ReGenerate Manna.

Wait for Paradise
to flow through your mouths,
down your throats,
into your communion stomachs.

If your kids are faithful and loving goats,
watch them wag their tails,
wages of love and not sin,
in gratitude for Grace.

If human
help us listen to,
and speak,
and write better tales
for restorative healing of love,
omnipresent as a mustard seed’s integrity
of each moment’s sacred with secular potential.

And if you should learn faith as one of these kids,
your tail
and tales
will wag truer,
and far more grace-filling effective
and affective
and infective
and reflective
too.

Then you may be safe to return
to your holier-with-you gardening books
on how to grow histories of love
without sinning against faith
of a mustard seed.

Scales of Omnipotence

We might discern diverse scales
for describing omnipotence
of CreatorGod
in the Bible,
as elsewhere.

Genesis begins with Earth’s wind and water,
and is about CreatorGod of Earth as Eden
with Her divine lights and clouded winds
coming down from sacred Heavens,
where God dwells
when not choosing to incarnate
in anthrocentric forms
and functions,
icons and language
of motion
and, eventually,
LeftBrain development
of sacred story-telling language.

The Gospel of John
begins with a Universal Articulating God,
manifesting LeftBrain sacred Word
for relationships
between sacred-secular differences,
contrasts and comparisons,
bipolar oppositions and dipolar appositions.

Words are created by
distinctions within a Universal System
created by sacred GodSpeak,
primal distinctions of YangSpace
within bilateral flowing YinTime.

The AbbaFather God of Jesus Christ
is a nondualistic God of Earth and Her Heavens,
Her visible to the naked anthrocentric eye Milky Way
SolarEnergized EcoSystem,
as sensory accessed by humanizing sacred nature,
whose traditional Jewish economy of law and order
was redemption by blood retribution ceremonies
and by water ritual restorative cleansings
of grace.

Blood sacrifices were about
a God of ReTributive Justice,
Natural Law and Order.

Water cleansings,
baptisms,
are about a God of Restorative Justice and Peace,
about a gift economy of mutual grace
and love ever growing more powerful
than PreAbba God
of Traditional Judaic ritual,
self-sacrificial liturgies
of continuing enslavement to YHWH
of vengeful winds
and a Fallen weedish PostEden,
in monoculturing decline of climates and landscapes.

But,
we will find only one Biblical and Koran articulation of idolatry.
What is substituted
for all these faces of God
as Creative-ReGenerative Love,
as taught by false prophets
and practiced by modern day capital-driven Pharisees
of evangelical ethnocentric jihad,
just war theories,
Crusades against the AntiChrist
which are actually crusades of and for AntiChristian competitions,
monoculturing colonizations
rather than polyculturing creolizations,
which was the Jewish Messiah’s world-redemptive intent,
to reform,
to restore,
to re-baptize into global civilizations of sacred cooperativity.

Fundamentalists,
Christian and Islamic,
would re-reduce restorative Grace
back to their own ethnocentric narrow-minded boxes
for retributive vengeance,
against losing Losers,
the not-so-ChosenPeople
also worshiping at idol altars
for continuing military-industrialized violence,
competitions rooted way back in sexism,
racism
competitive anti-ecological absence of restorative grace,
discarded meditative medications,
for growing healthy cultures
of polypathic gratitude.
