Bodhichitta Joy

Bodhichitta:

Is a supremely multicultural
golden elixir
overcoming sovereignty of death,
fear of mortality,
anger against loss
and suffering
and dispassionate inhumanity.

Is an inexhaustible
infinite
poly-rational treasure
eliminating,
absorbing,
healing poverty
in
and on
and over Earth’s orbiting
revolving
spiraling seasonal path.

Is supreme medicine
that quells
dispels Earth’s disease,
monoculturing unease,
swells polyculturing ease,
communion,
multiculturally intelligent communication.

Is a tree sheltering all living creatures
wandering
wondering
tired
retired
retreading this cooperatively-held path
of conditioned
reconditioned,
autonomously
interdependent,
mortal existence
immortal consciousness.

Is a universal bridge,
nutritional language,
healthy wealth
leading to liberal liberating liberty
from unhappy,
stingy,
conserving,
hoarding states of defensive birth
and child uncare.

Is a dawning moon of mindbodies
dispelling
respelling tumorous torment
of disturbing conceptions,
perturbing new moon misconceptions,
burbling cognitive dissociative dissonance,
gurgling bicameral full moon resonance.

Is a great sun
ultimately removing misty ignorance
of MotherEarth icons,
EarthMother original sources
resourcing our ecofeminist healthy home
in joy.

Brown Spotted Cancers

Cancerous capitalism
predative patriarchalism,
insists on runaway win/lose competitions
against EarthMother’s resilient health
and matriarchally resonant wealth

To fearlessly look
into mirrored medicine cabinets
noticing untherapeutic time’s inevitable one way
passive to active direction,

Erection of lines written
and rewritten
into this moment
of waving wonder
how resiliently limned health
reflects awesome nutritional resonance
of discontinuous assymetricl deviance
cognitive dissonance
waving
weaving toward affective rooted absence
of anticipated confluence,

Like bumps
lumps
wrinkles
mountains and valleys
of emergent theologically grand minds
in aging
ancient ecologically small organic bodies

Imagining climate pathological end
of healthy living green/blue Earth
predicted in commencement of cancerous capitalism
written in lines of greedy eyes
and needy ears
for egocentric masculine opportunity,
predative perpetuity.

Please Do Panic

Writing yet another note to my straight white CongressMan,
asking him to Please, Do Panic
about all this fear-based non-legislation
undemocratic fascist
nationalistic Win/Lose evolutionary corrupt
democratic devolution
going on around
and within us,

I’m wearing a white 1970s vintage Tshirt
from Castro Street’s Don’t Panic
political resistance and celebration
apparel.

Fifty years later,
I think it is well past time
to take the cooperativist
win/win panic plunge,

With a bold
black framed message:

THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT
IS WRONG

My son’s Haitian-American nurse,
married
and straight
as a military-industrialized arrow,
without the slightest quiver
of vocalized doubt,

Sexy darkbrown skin,
greying at his wisdom temples,
and a devout capitalist 7th Day Adventist
family provider man
of second or third evangelical generation,

Wants to know
if he, in 2020,
is affiliated with what my Tshirt says
to the Religious Right of 1975.

Possibly,
but I have always known you
as part of a Spiritual Right,

Which does not
too liberally judge
outside your own sensory satisfactory experience,

And is informed
and transparently curious
to learn from your own
sensory anticipations
of healthy smells
and wealthy tastes,
what feels good
and touches right,

And to responsibly stretch
your own sensory anxieties/anticipations
without blaming
or ambiguously shaming yourself
for not accepting who you are
right now
in this life
flowing toward
who we will become sacredly together,
spiritually and naturally,
tomorrow.

Which must,
in good right faith,
inevitably become a more rooted choice
to not be some other spiritual
or anti-spiritual life,
sometimes anxious about monoculturally competing
and other times anticipating
multicultural engagement
to be most naturally/spiritually right
in the ZeroZone pocket
of just Right EarthNursing balance.

Finding right religion
in natural/spiritual sensory experience;
your own phenomenological journey
embeds our shared ontological history
of sensory
neurological reweaving
re-ligioning psychological
left/right
yang/yin ancient sensory co-arising climax
of co-awareness,
consciousness,
co-operative con-scientiousness,
Ego/Eco-Systemic Balance.

My son’s 7th Day Adventist
Black Lives Matter
Haitian-American straight male nurse responds,

“Thank you.
That’s true.”

“Where can I find this shirt?
I would like one to wear
to our church picnic.
My extended Right spiritual family
will have many paniced health questions.”

And concerns
about green democratic wealth, I add.

“And, as you say,
some surprisingly grateful
gospel faith
anticipations.”

Paradise Speaks Integrity

Integrity
of resilient harmony
teaches WinWin
Egos are a holonic DNA-driven fragment
of one interdependently living ecosystem.

Integrity
invites active healthy love-steps
harmonic with all OriginaLife
sacred Creation.

Love
need not accept negative attitude risks
or Loser beliefs in original jealous anger
and divine punishing fear
or unfaithful over-productive hoarding vocations
as stewards of secular against sacred Earth

But Love
co-arises co-operatively co-owned
ego/ecotherapeutic power-with policies
and procedures,
Power within all WinNature/WinSpirit games and systems
economically TrustInvested.

Love
sees EgoDominant anthro-sapiens
coorperatively responsible farmers and gardeners
for land restorations
Rather than not so healthy LeftBrain dominion
over merely natural,
not at all spiritual,
commodified
potentially productive-extractive LandRights
of enslavement and mastery
destined to over-power manifest water-bearing balance
with and for all natural/spiritual animal integrity.

Integral ecopolitics
invests in OriginaLove
WinNature/WinSpirit co-operative owners
of a love life way
in health harmony trust
with resilient ego/ecotherapeutic living Earth.

AnthroSapien WiseElders
chose, and continue to choose,
WinWin within all DNA-integral sacred Others.

In hellish contrast,
Ego-hoarding nature v spirit predators
preach inhumane doctrines
patriarchal dis-integrative disjunctive
dissonant inappropriate distancing
diminishing matriarchally reborn and nurtured
cooperative co-creation.

Paradise
was not Originally Sinned
into fragmented
commodified
bought and sold and rented
and enslaved parts
using ZeroSum Win/Lose competitive
Fattest God Wins
power assumptions
anti-eco and ego and theo-logical health.

Integrity
recognizes Land as interdependent slow-growing kin,
as holonic part of matriarchal domestic peace lineage
from Original LoveLife
restoratively reconnecting all EarthTribes.

Love
includes a healthy paradise opportunity
responsibility
authority
to wealth-care for land and water
as we do for Other
WinWin ecosystemic extended resilient relatives.

Integrity
is just an Original WinWin Love word
reweaving deeper interdependent connections,
wider co-relational obligations
co-arising opportunities to resilient
healthy
DNA-diversely wealthy
Original paradise love-life revolutions.

The Princess Psychiatric Appointment

So, Yang,
who would you like to meet
your psychotropic doctor today?

[no answer]

I’m hoping Princess Yang
will speak with us today,
because she is my favorite,
I must confess
this PositivEnergy bias
for conserving nutritional activities,
nurturing co-relationships,
cooperative ZeroZone centering balance.

Hi,
I’m Princess Yang,
and Princesses are always kind
and never declare wars
and threats against
all the little people,
aides and helpers,
parents and teachers,
staff and employers
and employees,
and other forms
of flowing DNA roots
and green therapeutic RNA shoots.

Well, thank you
for showing up
and telling us far more about Princesses
than we might have been curious
to definitively know.

Perhaps you would be so kind
to share with your non-violently therapeutic doctor,
How do Princesses
most appreciate being approached
by loyal servants
and nurture conserving activists
of and for
WinWin royal behavioral ecopolitics?

Princesses like to be asked
before others approach,
with pleases and thank yous in place,
especially if bearing too hot food
or beverages.
And Princesses prefer “Not just yet”
to “No! Don’t even think about it,
Dracula!”

And
how does Princess Yang
teach her loyal subjects
and playful dancing and singing staff,
how she prefers to be greeted?

Princesses
like to hug your neck
and kiss your forehead
when we know and love you already.
Otherwise
we prefer fist bumps
and high fives
and will tolerate
hand shakes
although sometimes these hurt
our not quite right and left hands.

And how does Princess Yang
think and feel about her not quite right and left balancing hands
and eyes
and ears
and feet?

Princesses do our best
to assume WinWin.
All LoseLose appearances
to the contrary
and disappearances
are for healthy happy further negotiation
for both Princesses
and loyal cooperative subjects.

And who and what are
Princess Yang’s
most loyal subjects?

Well, not math
or reading.
Other Princess Yang advocates
are my favorite subjects,
like you
KingDaddy.

But,
Princess Yang,
do you think there could be
more than one KingDaddy
for you?

Only one for each Princess.

And how many Princesses
would you say
you have met?

Maybe one or two
at school
on a really good day.
The rest are all Older Queens
and Prince Alarmings.

And how does Princess Yang
think and feel about Older Queens?

Like they should ask permission
before they approach
like Prince Alarmings.

And KingDaddy,
should he ask permission to approach?

Yes,
but Princesses
also like Kings and Prince Charmings to sing
and dance toward them
without asking OK first.

Does Princess Yang
prefer the way Donald John
sings and dances,
or Barney bays
and prances?

Barney!
Princesses
do not ever want to see
KingDaddy Donald dance
or hear him sing–
Never!
And he should learn to ask
before approaching
and speaking about Princesses
to WinLose medication legislators
and LoseLose GunRights Activists,
about EarthTribe FirstRights Conservationists.

Anything else for the doctor today?

Thank you for listening
and staying away.
I bought you an apple.

You brought me an apple!

No,
I bought you one
but then I ate it
before we got here.

Tao of Optimal Health and Climate Care

Nursing and nurturing
can often be used synonymously.
To nurse a baby
is first to nurture a cherished infant.

They share a nutritional history
of healthcare giving
and receiving,
delivered best and most durably
when care works coincidentally both ways
in all Win-Win bilateral directions.

Up and down and laterally across hierarchies,
networks,
dialectal frames,
nutritional and health-care intentional environments,
healthy communities,
extending families,
multicultural tribes,
polyculturing landscapes.

Nursing,
unlike surgery,
is not done as well to and for patients,
from above and without,
and is best done within nurturing gratitude for sufficient patience;
hands on bilateral therapeutic relationships.

Surgery,
like the word abortion,
is about severance,
causing Win-Lose severing effects,
cutting out our regretfully accepted
as necessary loss,
minimizing pathology
as an acceptable exception
to our Hippocratic Oath,
our Golden Rules
of economic and political health-care etiquette,
laws
and just wars against pathology orders.

If healthcare giving and receiving
becomes monopolized but supremacist surgeons,
determined not to accept risk of failure
on their competing against death and decay watch,
within their sphere of authority
and responsibility
and lifeskills,
then supreme surgeons might declare warlike strategies,
wars and fights against
our own holistic multicultural historical integrity
of identity itself, our humane egoselves,
severing us from all other interdependent species
and revolving-nurturing eras
of sacred historic nature.

Surgeons too deductively distracted
by chopping up
and shooting at
and stabbing at
and enslaving
and hating
and fear-mongering
and terrorizing our own Ego-polyculturing selves.

Surgeons medically over-invested in healthcare severance
from our own EarthNature healthcare vocations
and shared nursing identity
as restorers,
as nurturers,
as caregivers
and receivers
healing Embodied EgoCenters within
our nurturing Sacred EcoHome.

Surgery will tolerate cutting hands off
as retribution for theft and greed.

Nursing is most abundant
when hands are left and right on,
inviting appropriately grateful
and humbling therapeutic touch,
voice on,
resonantly singing in multicultural chorus,
feet on,
investing in co-redemptive restorative directions,
minds within
Earth’s bilaterally revolving Sacred Homes,
bicamerally within,
dipolar healthcare
nurturing v stabbing-in-the-competing-bad-back climates without.

Appropriate proactive therapeutic touch
avoids Win-Lose aggressions,
political isolations
and threats of violence,
social severance of the EliteSurgeons
working against NonElite Nurses,
diagnostic surgery of what MedicinalEarth has conjoined
to organically co-nurture together.

No One Heals Alone

All is quiet
as I exit through the Emergency Entrance
at the local hospital.

I notice a black T-shirt
with a pink ribbon logo
announcing in bold green script
“No one fights alone”

Due to context
I’m guessing we’re talking about fighting cancer;
harm taking us away
from health care giving and receiving
we would all prefer
while walking out of,
rather than lying in,
any Emergency Entrance.

But, I am a theologian
by training
and practical parenting experience,
so I’m thinking,
Why do we not also wear T-shirts
reminding each other
“No one loves alone”

Or even
“No one loves to fight alone”
or even just among ourselves,
within our own households
and habitats.

I ponder my way back to humble Yaris,
with automatic electronic nothing,
and on the radio I hear clusters of fighting themes:
mental illness
domestic violence
gun violence
automated weaponry
military fear and threat stress-testing, enduring, stretching, growing
hazing as baptism through alcohol
depression and repression and suppression
acclimation to chronic climates of terror
and quiet climates of ever more dissonance
lack of healing sleep
anger management
fear mismanagement
mutual assured destruction (MADness)
diplomacy by threat and RightWing arms sales
military industries
applied increasingly to personal and domestic disarray,
local terrors,
households
and habitats
going up in flames
flowing under floods…

No one fights alone
just as no one loves peace alone,
and health
and ecological wealth
and ego-resilience
and eco-systemic balance,
harmony,
synergy.

No one can sustain love
while violently fighting
just as no one can sustain this fight
for climates
and cultures
and ecologies
and theologies of health
by thinking we are
admirable
or somehow credible
or even possible
to sort through
and choose Love alone.

As I exit my car,
now home,
I think
My T-shirt would probably be too wordy,

No one loves to fight disease
and unease
alone.

Especially not God
or Allah
or Patriotic Loyalty to Earth
or wherever we find our
remember to Love messages.

All is quiet
as I enter our home.
I must be,
for this moment,
alone.

Octaves for Belonging

I studied liturgical theology in seminary.
Even so, I was struck by the simplicity
of Robin Wall Kimmerer’s First Nation observation,
“Ceremony
is a vehicle
for belonging–
to a family,
to a people,
and to a land.”

But,
what is necessary difference,
if any,
between ceremony and life,
between liturgy and loving words
and actions,
between medicine
and healing therapy?

Language
is a vehicle
for RightBrain sacred personal meaning
and LeftBrain exegetical purpose–
for co-arising ethology of Earth’s sacred creation
and ecology of evolving and revolving,
spiraling lands and oceans
speaking in plant through harvest voices,
then Advent silence in-between
this great secular-sacred nutritional cycle
and divide.

Language of four-dimensional RealTime Seasons
with sacred and secular co-arising dynamic Reasons,
cooperative purpose
for gift economies

Flowing back toward (0)Soul Prime Relational meaning
for bilateral revolutions
of exterior Yang winds
covering interior Yin co-bilateral evolutions
of Earth’s Sacred Baptismal Waters

Water minds
flowing
winding bodies.

Elder Sacred Right
speaks through ceremonies
of cooperative light,
ethology of Western Grace
and Eastern Karma,
co-arising Sacred Ecology
of polypathic love,
surpassing any creed,
language,
ceremony

Both (0)Sum Prime Relational Source
but also divinely sacred expanding love,
more perfectly cooperative Unions,
radical ecopolitical Welfare
of a species
within Earth’s Great BiCameral Tribes

Speaking sacred Right meaning
and secular Left purpose
of restoring co-redemptive global vocations,
ego- with eco-therapies,
meditative medications,
bilateral secular-sacred co-intelligent consciousness.

Some of this
goes a bit deeper and yet wider
than what I love most
about Ecological Liturgy Studies.
So,
consider our (0)Soul BiCameral Source,
breathing Yang meaning and purpose in and up,
exhaling Yin ceremony and therapy out and down

Left 4dimensional SpaceTime Special Case,
Right Sacred PolyPathic OtherWise.

 

Kimmerer quote from “Braiding Sweetgrass” p. 37.

Eyes of a Dying Wolf

I looked through the eyes of a dying wolf
to see fires flaming out our horizon
as long as this wild wolf had seen.

He saw a time
when seizures
were currencies of sorcerors,
shamen and shawomen
born of supremely loving matriarchs.

Seizure medicine knew its own advent
echoing sources speaking dreams of manna geese
flying home for our first through last
Win/Win Thanksgiving Day
through fire extinguishing night.

Thanksgiving Peace Dreams
after fires and erupting volcanoing
seizures,
and also before peace dreams of hope-fired relationships,
responsible as authoritative Win/Win faith,
respect for powers of multiculturing love
over monoculturing fears
of fires for volcanoed hate
of gun-fires flaming out horizons.

I looked through the eyes of a not yet dead wolf
to see fires of restorative justice
for Thanksgiving Days and Nights of Peace
sweeping all Win/Win full-fired horizons
of Wonder as Sacred Flaming Awe.

Hypocrisy in OnlyWhite

I am reading
“Democracy in Black”
by Eddie S. Glaude, Jr.
but continue reconstructing this title
“Hypocrisy in Only White.”

Because
when I let my memory
look back to my own self-interests in history
as archaeological digging and prying and discovery,
adventure and curiosity
of my internal ecological development,
I reweave back
through still on-going matriarchal lines
that include,
are shared with,
anyone capable of reading
and comprehending
these words of regenerating memory.

Back
to darker
denser
richer genes and memes
of cooperative to still thrive today,
saving competitions for survival moments.

Back to
better to prey together
side by side
as neanderthal brothers and sisters
than to grow predative
against each other.

This Golden Rule
of dark Afro-Eurasian
equatorial resonant depth
of historical origin
in normative play
at least until we substitute capitalism’s
supremacist agendas
for rationalism’s ego-ecocentric
reweaving memory
of this original Earth Mom
magical and mysterious
then worshiped and danced
ritualed and cooperative ownership co-governing,
then more modern radical eccentricities
forgetting our shared matriarchal
regenetic
memory of dualdark
hypocrisies of merely white inferiority
complexes
disease
dissonance
despair of remaining fully
who we together are,
where we have been
predating history
where we could return
each morning
with greatest polyphonic joy.

To paraphrase David Holmgren
(Permaculture, p. 113)
Containers were one essential organic innovation
necessary for this cooperative agrarian revolution.
Opportunities to refill organically produced bodies
are enormous
transitioning into recycling energy descent
for shared cooperative memory.
Reimaging full organic containers
is far better than sending us
away and down and out for recycling.
Most official ecopolitical waste reduction strategies
place little emphasis
on organic reuse refilling re-educating
deep ecologically learning containers,
or confuse WinWin refueling,
reweaving,
with capitalism’s WinLose recycling,
switching productive containers
into merely consuming eventual empties,
bleached-out white-washed faded hypocrisies
of purest supremacy against nothing
deeply densely
richly resonantly valued.
