Green Body of Christ

When I was a child
my evangelical family
went to People’s CoOperative Bible Church,
to rapturously pray and praise our privileged preachy partialness,
political and economic and social and environmental,
spiritual against physical apartheid
of superior, divinely-inspired, theology,

Yet, somehow rooted in mission-driven competitions
against the fullness of non-sectarian time
sufficient to bring inclusive nutrients,
liquid and capital-hoarded assets for future rainy
blizzard blustering
dominant days,
at least six per week
severed from Sabbath’s cooperatively wondrous Kingdom
at open-systemic nurturing hand,

Celebrated by declaring our victorious Communion
on God’s glorious not capital-driven work on Sunday
seated in humble chairs of classroom youth,
eventually wooden pews of adult authority
in our small
segregated
AllWhite People’s Sectarian Bible Church.

I recall not even one Sunday School lesson
about what the Holy Historical Body of Christ
might have to do with our potential
Green MultiCulturing Spirit of Healing Christianity,

Nothing about tensions between communion
and monocultural supremacist apartheid,

Nothing about walls between WinWin healthy sacred interdependence
and WinLose stringent secular autonomy of capitalism,

Nothing about Great NonTransitional Divides
between cooperative passions and competitive dispassions,
between Heavenly to-gatherness
and too much Earthly apartness,
between celebration of health
and holocaust of anthro-centric pathology.

Maybe I missed that non-violence teaching Sunday,
But I did not miss experiential theology lessons
of tensions between heterosexual patriarchal monocultural evangelism
and Heaven’s vast radically inclusive promise
of a polycultural
non-apartheid
eternal communioned outcome for Earth-dwellers,
especially for child-like peacemakers,
Holy Spirit inheritors,
regenerators,
co-messiahs within this one secular/sacred Body of Christ.

Active hope for such enchanting holistic bodies
and spirits of vulnerable and transparently loving Messianic Missions,
in the West,
and Bodhisattva PeaceWarriors,
in the East,
felt, even then, as a child,
like emotionally interdependent
enchanting intelligence.

Perhaps,
if we could all arrive in everyday Sabbath Heaven,
in absence of six-day capital over-invested apartheid,
we might discern warmer inviting Lights
are also Truths
and communioned Ways
to sing God’s/Gaia’s EarthBound greening praise

As when we first began
in Planet’s CoOperative Bible Church.

Silent NewBorn Revolution

“Evolution
takes its sweet time
in its work
on our collective consciousness;
the lasting leap from fear to love
in the human mind
will be its masterpiece.”
Walking to Listen, p. 139
Andrew Forsthoefel

Evolution, like redemption,
takes its sweet Christmas is coming time
in its therapeutic work
on our collective climate consciousness;
The lasting leap from competing noisy fear
to more cooperatively-owned and -managed quiet love
and health
in the human mind
and wealthy heart
and dancing feet
and swelling song
will be its master/mistress-piece.

Evolution’s cooperative Silence is huge
and timeless,
the freedom of just-right complexity, not anarchy,
replacing chaotic personal and political identity.

And yet
the opposite is also true,
when silence is not shared
but an isolating prison
of discontenting consent
to mutually hide.

Here, dead time stands hopelessly still,
stale,
stagnant,
lethal,
terrifying,
claustrophobic.

Freedom of silent eternity,
shared internally,
turned revolutionarily outward to embrace all,
is also absence of liberty
to silently, collusionally,
conspiringly build Ego’s swelling codependent prison
of deep learned despair.

ZenBuddhist teachers
invite ZeroZone silence,
as do PolyCultural Designers, for that nutritional matter,
not to avoid positive robust attachments
but to grow ever deeper and wider healthy roots
absorbing compost of nurturing interdependent passion.

Silent soul co-passion,
positive-positive flowing nutritional ego-eco relationship,
WinWin co-operative
potential for furthering communion’s silent depth,
natural environmental resonance,
EarthTribe timeless resilience,
Golden ComPassion Rules
for exceeding anemic and passive-aggressive non-violent diplomacy
by I win so You must lose threat,
power-overing repression,
attachment to LeftBrain Yang-elite dominance.

Silent compassion
fuels bicameral branching external climate vocations.

On the Left/Yang convex side,
building of resilient global communion,
multicultural,
explores organic meanings for Ego’s optimal vocation
toward personal nutritional wealth.

On Right/YinFlow concave side,
watering resonant climates of internal health,
wealthy sensory and cognitive enchantments,
positive energy attachments
to EgoLeft/EcoRight
GoldenRule DNA climate therapy,
now waves of oscillating Yang
overpowering too thin Yin
underflowing bipolar pre-millennial dissonance.

Left and Right dipolar co-arising together
reweave Yang’s external silent evolution,
ZeroZone center
of oscillating ecstatic Yin compassion waves,
20-20 silent revolutionary cooperative
becoming silent second sight
within/out integral compassionate EarthTribe,

Universal Yang branched Communion
of unitarian YinFlow branching out healthy cooperative Purposes.

If others choose to see this tree structure
Yang exterior communion
as God the Father’s EarthCreation,

And YinFlow loving interior redemptive healing agenda
as His messianic-bodhisattva-missionary EarthPassioned Son,

And silent resilient ecstasy
of EgoSoul as Holy EcoSpirit within

Bicameral hearts and minds
co-arising external healthy enchantments
of God’s EarthCreative
wealthy robust climate,
sacred Home,
EcoHabitat,

I would not be at all opposed,
loudly
or even ZeroZone silently.

Multicultural evolution’s cooperatively-owned silence
is reiteratively,
echoingly huge
and timeless empowering waves

For freedom of complex communal economies,
inside and outside organic climates,
replacing chaotic political identity,
absence of synergetic
silent shared integrity.

Advent of Climate Depression

After required Thanksgiving Day
and depressing night
I awoke surprised
by release into ego-homelessness.

What could sad night despairs mean?
Reiterating loss of identity
mysteriously appearing on this habitat’s coldly absent roof
of sacred grace
space.

Why would capital depression,
RightBrain suppression
and historic patriarchal suppression
suddenly gang up more gracefully,
less threateningly,
on ZeroZone ego-homelessness
freely chosen
before rudely thrown out
for lack of paternal place.

RightBrain fullness of soul
remains ZeroZen timeless re-identification
one empty homeless side without exterior shelter.
But, for how long could eternity reweave
temporary housed DNA souls
becoming Earth’s healthy resilient lifeline?

Advent invites homeless nurturing adventures
into matriarchal kindness, silent advances
into wildly blind blizzards
binding sun’s enchanting rainbow promise
of watery return to Earth’s temporary spring sanctuary
refueling DNA’s homeless
yet robust
absence of living boundaries

Toward, rather than against, Earth’s healthy wealth
future identity transgenerating
transubstantiating temporary sanctuary
in humane health-identity space,
Earth’s co-arising sacred time
of ego’s secular summer
for ecology’s climate climax.

Mutually homeless failing falling theology pilgrims,
EgoYang and EcoYin polypathic souls
overshadowed
by Earth’s great green sanctuary assigned
to re-study timeless regenetic root systems
playing WinWin ZeroSoul revolutionary games
for homeless trusted identity, sheltering
from wildly wounded wandering
within chronic asylum anxiety,

Lost in lonely inside forests
quaking,
outside breaking,
patriarchal fake-sanctuary voices
inside cooperative matriarchal wombing choices.

A lot of cold windy Dad talk
trumped
in each infant WinWin womb
by Mom’s resolute inside nutritional walk.

Homeless ego child
re-connecting this eco-womb,
preparing to journey home again
each sacred light of wintry advent’s dawn

After thanksgiving days
and depressing night
re-awakening surprise
of ego’s wandering
health-rooted
adventurous soul
revolution dawning in darkest brights.

Story Lessons

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

The apparent insanity of inmates
and prisoners
and addicts, conspiracy theorists and paranoids,
does not prove,
nor necessarily even suggest,
the keepers are not also self-entitled nuts
with unhealthy powers,
authorities,
delegated detached responsibilities
loyal to ratchet race competitions.
Passion Story

When you are crucified, naked, poor
and occupied by Roman yangish powerful voices
and Win/Lose commodity values,
unhealthy fought and sold colonizing authorities,
irresponsible power occupiers,
violators of healthy green peace objectives
applicable to any sanctuary and asylum
with humane organic embodied rituals and behaviors
yet still Win/Lose divine punishing evolution machine minded,
we have been historic asylum invited
to purge messianic homeless egos
on HolonicSpirit’s centering Earth-cross,
rather than remain comparatively imprisoned by traumas
to the disassociating left or right.

Health History Story

A. Earth was born, still, flat, without form and ZeroCentric void.
B. S/he remains newborn and young,
springing organic life
WinWin preferential solidarity with all EarthTribe.
C. S/he still grows mature healthy Heavenly summer sun
over nurturing MotherEarth,
sacred/secular conjoined.
D. S/he co-emerges Northern revolutionary Yang/Yin bicameral,
bilateral healthstream co-arising poly-paths,
-phonics,
-cultures,
-nomial maps,
-meme messages,
-frames of secular/sacred nutrition.

One Flew Into the Communion NestEgg

See “Health History Story” above
The apparent stillborn insanity of original patriarchal residents
need not predict
Yang/Yin co-redeeming caregivers
are not also ego- v eco-logical sanctuary sociopaths
sabotaging our own potential opportunities
for polypathic communion asylums.

Advent Funerals with Birthdays

The coincidence of Advent
and the HW Bush eulogies
reminded me of DJ Trump’s challenge
to laugh about himself
at least as quickly as he laughs against others.

As compared to any recent US President,
he comes in dead last
for his appropriate humility,
willingness to sacredly listen, empathize with generosity,
and least place for his ability to nurture resilient international peace,
and I am not sure these two challenges
are merely side-by-side coincidental.

Other challenges seem to come with the Yangish motivation required to even become a credible candidate.

Presidential candidates
at least since the Civil War,
if not the Revolutionary War,
are not generally known for saintly sacred listening
to and for healthy multicultural developments,
domestic or foreign,
domestic and yet foreign
to those unschooled in WinWin health-power whisperings,

Noticing positive deviance
advocated and praised and blessed first well-humored,
before negative pedestrian bullying rat races continue
with all paranoid Win/Lose stripes
madly pursued by monoculturing manic political stars.

This Advent day of HW Bush eulogies
was also my oppositionally defiant daughter’s seventeenth birthday.
When I asked her for an allegorical meaning
for the Sleeping Beauty fable
she dismissed the story
as another patriarchal humorless female Messianic staple
for achieving EarthJustice happily ever after
by mere kiss of Prince Charming
after she had done all the heavy emotional lifting
required to rebuild sacred communion
with resilient good humor.

But, she is more interested in discussing Robin Hood
and Little Red Riding Hood,
all the potential messianic Hood leaders
who know predative patriarchal wolves when they see
and hear
and smell them,
even in hooded disguise,
transparently lying on their own grandmother’s bed
and Bibles
and thrones,
about being more committed to democratic good-humored healthy constitutions
advocates for sharing communion with all
before defending their own ego-centric hindquarters.

My fetal alcoholic seventeen year old daughter
knows wolves when she hears them
in government threatening humorless voices
or more entertainingly violent industrial corruption predators.

Feminist Hoods can themselves taste wolf hunger
for royal hunting and riding
and devouring innocent WinWin democratic youth,
separating them from their naive healthy multiculturing forests,
composed by
and for
and of naturally diverse and good-humored habitats.

She can smell satiated predators
growing hungry for vulnerable healthy integrity
stealing back fleeting power from Win/Lose playing wolves
by investing economic and political trust
in those still living natural-humored life
as a normal spiritually connecting re-investment.

Hooded egos still know this spiritually enchanted forest life
as a naturally reconnecting hope
for healthy happier,
more co-redemptive,
EarthJustice futures.

And so the eulogies
and my daughter’s exegetical birthday party progressed
through Cinderella’s king and queendom
at healthier humored EarthJustice hand
after marrying her Prince of Adventuring Revolutionary Peace.

On through the Three Little Pigs
enjoying shared wolf-soup communion
with all EarthTribe’s piglets and cubs,
dolls and stuffed bears
communioned while sitting down grace-fully together.

She hears this same polypathic humored journey
in every diversely sacred narrative
she leads and listens,
smells and tastes and feels
hope for Earth’s wealth
of future everyday health
for democratic constitutions,
disability stories,
eulogies inviting salvific humor.

This coincidence of birthday and funeral
reminds me of our sacred challenges
to laugh communally among ourselves
more than jeering a viral twittering weapon
against the vulnerabilities of others.

Cooperative StoryListening Proposal

I would like to hear and see
how and why you live,
when and where you prefer to die,

I would like to touch and taste
who and what you think and feel
is your greenest dreamed sanctuary
without imagined ultra-violet capital limits
and with secured and sufficient communion
for your most economic
and political
and ecological
and theologically robust lifeline.

This future HealthSanctuary Search
is for any visionary who might want to live personally and politically
more ecologically downscale
and slow-grown organic reorganization
and less economically patriarchal dependent-scaled
and fast-grown violent
stressing
and straining military-industrial mobilization.

This Sanctuary Search
is for those longing for communion ecologies,
more than eulogies,
although both can be good and left and right
appropriate to inside ego theologies
of healthy pruning gods
and nurturing goddesses reunited
reweaving LeftYang and RightYin transubstantiating fabrics
speaking reductive Earth
within universally inductive Heavens,
icons of sacred hybrid spacetime in-between
journeys toward HealthTipping Sanctuary’s
multicultural destinies.

For individuals and families,
WinWin naively young
on through resilient Wise GreeningElders,
longing for organic community wanna-be permacultural gardeners
longing for ego- and eco-therapeutic Home Schools
for positive energy democratic education
and green advocate cultural re-education,
and longing for RightBrain dominant creators,
activists,
designers,
sculptors,
story-tellers and listeners and followers and bloggers and sloggers,
musicians,
dancers,
ShoutOut comedians and rappers,
spacetime occupiers

Belonging to Green Sanctuary Movements,
locally egoed
and globally ecoed
with revolutionary room enough even for a drama queen or two
or even more,
practicing turn-taking and divine listening,
then speaking queenly green.

Sanctuary for preachers and teachers
and parents who prefer to childlike listen
and practice non-violent communication apprenticeships
perpetually being
and coincidentally doing
and cooperatively non-violent growing
WinWin green ecological economic Sanctuary CovenantShips
and pedestrian restoring rituals.

Then, after listing and listening
to your future sanctuary dreams,
I would like to help us together incarnate
green cooperative households
and gardens,
urban through rural farms filled with mutual home-holders
enjoying Earth’s outdoor green Sanctuary Cafe
with open mic nights and days
producing positive energy podcasts,
liturgical nutritional broadcasts
of healthy green sanctuary plants
with WinWin networking
root restoring systems,
eco-centrically wealthy
green listening casts
celebrating EarthHealth SpeakOut Sanctuaries,
earthy sanctity

Periodically proposing locally grown rituals
cooperatively thought and felt and imagined
Called out global green.

I would like to hear and see
how and why we live most robustly
in-between when Earth
and Heaven where
EarthTribe prefers to never die.

Making America GreatAtFolly Again

I was listening to The Naked Apprentice,
carefully,
cautiously sifting for any substance
behind mindlessly reactionary mulish gruel,
universally bullying
yet morally thin as frozen rain
on my windshield.

He has the mechanical aptitude,
systematic rectitude,
academic attitude
of a tired,
hungry,
and pissed off mule.

I know
because we lie and copulate in the same pen,
the same industrious climate,
the same WinHealth v LosePathology continent
and planet.

Barbara Tuchman speaks of Folly
as I might think of stubborn mule-headedness.

To paraphrase:

RightWing anger and fear,
paranoia and competitive greed for power
and food
and sensual beverages of proper self-medicating choice
status,
inspiring envy and hate
have long been perceived as paranoid,
unloving,
pathological

Sickness in RightWing extreme Folly threat
to resilient global health,
not merely my own healthy wealth
during this my fifth dimensional quarter of questioning
seeing
hearing
listening
searching for healing
deep learning
co-acclimation calling hindsight,
but, tragically, through all anti-social wounded untherapeutic time.

Always playing the Liar trump card
has not been so historically over-played
since Julius Caesar
told Cleopatra
he would make Egypt great again
because he passionately loved her.

Possibly modeled after Judas
selling out the Prince of Peace
to make Israel great for integrity again.

A feasible cooperatively healthy course
of action
of ownership
of governance
leading authority
leading responsibility
healing social intent
satisfying human curiosity
resilient mammalian courage
resonant living instinct
must recall and advocate
more than fairy tales of RobinHood internationally accessible,
dynamically mapped and media story-framed,
enchantingly systemed and captured,
health-modeled and remolded multiculturally.

This RightWing TrumpCard
plays,
and therefore sounds,
like a globally mendacious Folly question
That of an anti-social aberration, a wound,
reacting against cooperatively green eco-schooled redemption,
climate health care giving and ecovillaged planet receiving
cooperatively self-organizing group-thinks and democratic feels
of integrity’s discernment–
Not an Other individual autonomously greedy
to capitalize EGO-POWER!

A self-entitled plutocrat,
well-machined by a heartless RightWing Win/Lose bullying society,
a secularized self-righteous narcissistic nation-actor
in a failing anti-RobinHood EarthTribe,
a fallen Folly humane nature.

Industrialized
capital F for Folly persists,
insists,
preys and bullies
beyond one pre-millennial ecopolitical era
of climate pathology,

Far beyond my own climatically dysfunctional listening pen
for mules
hungry
thirsty
tired
and OtherWise
now preparing to live cooperatively ever green
ultra-nonviolently after.
