Masked Medical Missionaries

Not sure why
USA red
relentlessly white
and not so much blue WholeEarth patriots
have consistently
selflessly supported
medical missionaries
vaccinating against every unmasked
health threatening disease
erupting in tribal life
of darkest social systemic Africa

Yet fail to co-empathically embrace
basic
fundamental
win/win evangelically redemptive
bipartisan public health care
here in domestic
Straight White
USA Christian
flag-waving homes

Where live and breathe
our own at-risk children

And climate threatened grandchildren

And pandemonic RightWing denihilistic
degenerating public and private health prospects
for great grandchildren

Who might hope to survive
for more than another wealthy
humane-divine century

Sacredly meaningful
unmasked
transparent
and multiculturally vulnerable
co-empathic
polypathic
public and private
EarthBound health.

HealthCare Requiem

So here we are
now together in this eternal circle
around death’s latest victim
in our apartisan lives.

We pause,
each to invite a quieter humbling access
to silent comfort
from this ministering circle

Each, and together,
facing this our inevitable personal
frighteningly human,
naturally spiritual
and inspirationally natural trauma

Asking forgiveness from ourselves
and each Other in this soon parting Circle,
letting go of flawed relationships
in which we have done and said,
and too often not peacefully done
and said,
harm to ourselves
and to these encircled Others

Here doing our health and wellness best
we can
knowing some days and nights
like this death day,
with nighttime fears
and angers against cruel
and unusual mortality,
we will add to our shared ecology
and theology
of Trauma:

[invite Circle to add their own feelings]

Loss
Suffering
Pain
A degenerating climate
Hopelessness
Despair…

Yet, also in this Sacred Pause
before dispersing
shared Death’s hard inevitability,
we may also invite remembering
this our circling resonance,

When,
in our most robust compassion moments,
health care giving
is also wealth receiving resilient
brilliant,
physically empowering
and spiritually enlightening

We embrace
and celebrate our recircling Trauma facing
sacred place
warmly regarding space

For all that we have said and done
and have not said and not done
from heart-felt compassion
with ____;

[full name of deceased/ing]

This inside silent day
and dark night,
and those before
and yet to come
trusted truths
and healthiest beauty
circles gathering Earth’s compassion
celebrating this sacred pause in Life.

Touch the Earth, Reach the Sky

Touching Earth,
reaching sky.

I walk salt shores
where all Souls fly
over joy’s ocean,
under sad bad lands
my faith in quests
we could understand.

Touch this Earth
to feel our sky.

Wise fools ask
our reasons why,
In glad lives
our answers glow,
in sad love
we learn to grow

To heal our Earth
and teach this sky

We are born
while I shall die,
Life’s my time for in between,
to build you a star,
to chase our dream

Touching Earth
while feeling sky

Hugging laughter
feeds my cry,
May I see
what we can give
for future’s child
to sacred live

We touch this Earth
to reach light’s sky

Soaring courage,
healthy high,
All Souls joining
in Earth’s flight
to touch Her right
I reach through night
for love’s last
last
last splendid sight.

This variation on Grace Lewis-McLaren’s hymn  (#301, Singing the Living Tradition) is dedicated to All Souls-PlanetEarth, especially New London, on the occasion of our Great Return, September, 2021.

She Didn’t Mean to Play

What Earth didn’t mean to say:

Being pro-life
is like being against
matriotic health
and/or wealth.

Denying communion
for supporting maternal rights
to unhappily choose abortion
is unlike denying anthrosupremacist sacraments
for ecopolitically supporting MotherEarth
traumatic last-rites
to choose globally inclusive Ecocide.

War and fear mongering
are more effective,
more powerfully frightening,
than peace is compassioning,
more empowering healthy
and enlightening wealthy.

Moving on from thinner sympathy,
where healthy wealth is dissonantly fading,
to impassioned empathy
of economic
and politically profound commune-ication
ideation
is never poly-entheistically compassionate,
co-investment easy to cooperatively
sacred vocationally
compassionately accomplish

Outside v Inside
in polycultural full-spectrum worldview healthy
integral wealth creolizing patriarchal
capitalist
monocultural purposes
could not remain
LeftBrain dominant over-rewarded
win/lose reductive
Either/Or deductive dissociated
from ecopolitical ZeroSum scarcity
of transparently anthrosupremacist
win/lose traumatic bare survival experiences

By squeezing
and raping the regenerative life
out of BlueSky/GreenEarth matriarchal physicians
indigenously spiritual/naturally experienced
Yintegrally/Yanging harmoniously about
ecofeminist WholeEarth health-interdependent contexts

Cooperatively co-invested
in Open WholeEarth regenerative wealth
is health
bicameral worldviews;
not so much nationalistic

Is not so much
cooperative tribalistic
NonZeroistic Realistic
RightBrain Trust is Beauty
proven sensory-neural systemic development
resiliently and integrally
beautistic metaphysical
EarthHealth science
re-ligioning Wealth
non-ecosadistic statistics.

We search for secular need for purpose
in our Truth thoughts
to uncover want feelings
for ego/eco-therapeutic
sacred Beauty
polypathic meaning.

Life and Death Perspectives

Psychologists,
sociologists,
anthropologists,
and theologians, curiously,
are more likely to confuse the tragic end
of sacred EarthLife’s developmental end of significance.

Environmentalists,
holistic ecologists,
integral biologists,
students of pre-historic religious re-connecting rapture
are less likely
to collapse the sacred value of all life systems
into a monopoly of anthrolife,
both godless and goddessly,
both loveless and lovely,
both lost and found,
both barely tolerated and gracefully esteemed,
both survived today and thriving toward tomorrows.

A wider multicultural awareness
of healthy wealthy ecosystems
is less likely to reduce all wise cultural values
omitting pre-verbal and pre-anthro history
of life and death experiences,

Never alphabetized
or quantified
by retold human history
of anthro-regenerative life
and degenerative biosystemic death narratives.

Life as regenerating love experience,
death as lost and degenerating images
of future inside-only integrally known events;
These two, ecto-life and endo-death,
are much older
hoary
ancient,
more sacred, divine memory
than mere human monopolistic imaging
of Earth’s imagined bio-health value
and future opportunities for resonant
regenerative resilience

Re-imagining life and death
histories of EarthLife
told and untold
evokes verbal thoughts
about feeling ecologically connected,
theologically re-connecting reverberating sacred Words,

Dancing rituals,
sung and whistled and chirped and roared exclamations,
celebrations and eulogies

Of Earth re/de-generative creation
in and through spiral cycles,
power and light re/de-volution
of dying life
and death reviving.

Liberating Addiction

I need to talk about addictions,
about my addiction issues,
and maybe yours.

Addiction gets a deserved bad rap
but that doesn’t mean we have no more
than mean-spirited possibilities.

Our first addiction,
and, for the lucky ones,
the functional extended multigenerational
multicultural families
and liberating tribes,
also the last,
is love.

Love,
hidden or wide unwalled open
for another human,
another species,
another culture,
another part of Earth,
and other, costly
medicinal substitutes,

Drugs and alcohol,
guns and loud danger,
cars and sex,
coffee
and comfort
and convenience,
beauty
and enlightenment
and luxury,
notoriety
and money
and security,
all poor substitutes
for the nurturing feel
and natural touch,
nutritional smell and taste,
native sight and sounds
of love.

I have two issues
with addiction.
One is my obsessive-compulsive need
for my next, even better, fix
what’s broken.

I find it humbling
to be cravenly overpowered
by physical and mental,
natural and spiritual, want,

By my longing to climax
resiliently
resonantly
universally embraced by Earth’s most incarnate
and eternal
esteem,
communion,
co-passion.

But, physical addiction
can be softened,
eased,
healed more readily
and stadily
if not for my shame
and hide in the closet
self-judgment,

If not for my weak
and sinful shadow nature,
My need to hide
my darkest fruit truths
about not being in control
of my own autonomous will power.

And, so it is,
I hide my greatest weakness,
my greatest internalized enemy,
and thereby feed and water feelings
of guilt,
self-blame shame,

A failure to grow vulnerable love for others
I cannot see in naked love
and truth
and transparent beauty
because I fear to meet judging eyes
and minds,
voices
conserving dismissive choices.

Secret addictions
have all my darkest powers
of steadfast
and cyclical disempowerment.

Acknowledged addictions
I can call out courageously,
then curiously explore
with my housemates,
neighbors,
teachers and parents,
children and listeners,
supportive groups of similar addicts,
medicating absence of love’s
spiritual wealth
without natural walls.

Fears and angers spoken
and named
thereby weaken
as love swells
for positive addiction,

Which, as long as not risked
stays absent,
even from our healing selves
grasping mercy
for becoming merely mortal
and expecting my birthright
of a health wealthy society
good faith community
family
with multicultural addiction values
and unlovely disvalues

Summarized in GoldenRule behaviors
and positively addicted open
vulnerable
transparent
courageous
actively curious gratitude
attitudes of cooperative disclosure.

This power of my unhealthy addictions
lies more heavily in hiding my self
secret depressions
repressions
suppressions
dark impressions
that true and beautiful,
resonant and resilient love
is too far above
my emotional pay scale,
worthy of our co-redemption,

Too big a reach
to try to open up again,
to share my weak addictions
and strong compulsions
to feel and touch
taste and see
where love was lost
while pursuing lesser
hidden things.

Indigenous Tree Wisdom

I talk with indigenous treed elders;
Tell them about my distractions
divisions
severance in-between
secular and sacred beings,
between human nature and divine spirit,
between ecological relationship
and theological redemption.

Communing cultures
and structures
return a secularized version
of theological Earth/Heaven
humanely rooted
and divinely radiant
empowering
enlightening relationships

Popularly seeded and matriarchally replacing
top down
with down co-arising up HerStoric sacred revision
of ecological EarthEgo co-relational identities
as also HeavenEcoSystemic compassionate rebirth

Prime NonZero WholeSum Seeds
BiCameral hierarchical branches
reverse-root deep unhierarchically reaching
for metaphonic co-relationships
healthy Yang branching
from wealth rooted Yintegrity.

I expected to not hear much response
to my leftbrain dominant dichotomies
of what rightbrain love
would not segregate,
rooted Earth
from branches co-arising Heaven.

Trees expect quizzical and confused verbal expressions;
Intuitive dipolar co-arisers
expect our intuitive suspicions
that God might be joking
choking
and/or a bit touched
in an unflowering
unfruitful capital head.

For when have we felt HolySpirits
without touching holistic nature,
inside and outside,
above ground voices
deep listening choices
below?

When have we tasted nature’s warmest enrichment
and not smelled sacred communing fragrance?

When have we seen nature’s great outdoor display
and not also heard forest dismay
longing to be part of EarthTribe’s great
green cooperative WeVillage?

Evolving root system networks
and revolving branched sacred stretches
through universal HeavenSpace
and unitarian light
dark timeless recycling
repurposing revolutions of nature/spirit
ego/eco-systemic bilateral healing
secular/sacred Green
and Brown
and Round PeaceTree
Healing the Forest Justice.

My Great Transition Creator’s reasons
indigenously rediscover
celebration of Creation’s nutritionally appropriate seasons

Of seeding
and planting
cooperative community co-investing

In nonviolent communication
with each Other
and within EarthTribe CoEducational Creations
to restore EarthJustice,

A potential NonZero Sum
Win/Win regenerative game
to replace suboptimizing ZeroSum win/lose
extractive human voices
for extending climate degeneration

Depression
inside the bark of egos
and throughout outside eco-rooted
theo-multiculturally branched denominators
secular/sacred bilateral sights
and sounds
and resounding bright

EarthHabitat
contextually felt
bicameral-rooted compassion networks
of forest complex creation information
and co-creative co-investor exflowation

Downstreaming future secular history

Dominating Capitals

Competitive capitalism
is about dominance,
which increases separation,
space between Winner haves,
and Loser have-nots

Degenerating into polarized views
more culturally dominant
than old-school cooperative middle
in-between
socio-economic median disappearances

Away from civically active democratic imagination,
focus,
functionally experiential frames
favoring cooperative democracy
over capital plutocracy.

Democracy is about win/win bicameral consensus
which grows integrity
between co-investing Haves
and HaveNots,
depolarizes our EitherHave/OrNotHave
eco-politically valued lives

Mediating in-between re-membering,
reweaving multigenerational cooperative
matriarchal empowering history
of mutually enlightening democratic health care

Through cooperative ownership
stewardship
citizenship
home and meal management
integrity of co-responsive thought and feelings,
polycultural communication
and multicultural energy systems

Refracting integral re-MEMEory
left-hemisphere empowering
right-hemisphere energetic win/win
neurological waves of light.
