Green Sanctuary Propositions

Who are you most longing to become?

How we answer this is different for an ancient rooted tree
than for a recent immigrant
searching for a niche of stable self-sufficiency.

Who we already have become together
feels more important to thriving groves of WiseElders
than to adolescent immigrants
actively learning creolizing bilingual skills
still coming together for survival.

So too, offering Sanctuary,
becoming Sanctuary,
inviting Sanctuary,
is rooted in Green complex nutrients
for feeding
and warm wet watering
whispering easier
cozier
more accessible nutrients
for everyone–
but especially appreciated
by more recent emigrants
to a new garden of hospitality,
of multicultural cooperation,
of shared cooperative residence
and patterns of safe,
sometimes exciting, new transport
toward healthiest wealth.

A gardener’s intent
to both offer and share sanctuary
may provoke well-nurtured gratitude
in a recent annual immigrant,
but a more sleepy and self-satisfied entitlement
in mature seniority of perennials,

Yet, primordially feeling and speaking,
we are all immigrants newly becoming together
with each new dawn,
and determined to cooperatively rest
in grateful dreams
with each renewing dusk.

Who are we most belonging
by becoming Green Sanctuary
together?

Some guilds of mutual interest
and investment
invite growing a cooperative sanctuary for food,

Other teams choose cooperatively owned and managed shelter,
gardens,
farms,
transporting cars and trucks
and bikes and horses,

Others focus on cooperatively owned and managed soil,
observing that democratically co-invested compost,
like capital,
recalls healthy savings in a nutritional bank
for cooperative food constituents.

And so it went,
whether Republican or Democrat,
Libertarian or Green,
Who we want to become together
is more cooperatively resilient,
more robustly compassionate
and co-empowering,
so less aloof
alone
smug and self-satisfied
about our competitive win/lose economic
and partisan histories of colonization;

When, truth become remembered,
we are all reborn naked
and needy
immigrants.

Economics: Capitalism v Messianism

Asked three cannibal philosophers,
named Who
and What
and Why
is eating life so bad
without smothering it in catsup?

Who is serving What
and Why
to Whom
on Earth is NotWho?
Already eaten
by re-connecting tissue issues

Do we invest in ever more and better
win/lose capital head-hunting hunters?
Playing Either/Or ZeroSum games
of deadly loss
over fulfilling and resiliently continued life together?

Or Win/Win Christian
and Islamic
and Buddhist
nondualistic nature/spirits inviting co-attachment games
for all multicultural eco-messiahs,
suffering ego-prophets re-attaching
within MotherEarth’s
bodhisattva therapeutic agenda,

Earth-serving Whom
health integrity
of Who, loving
What, co-arising
Why, redeeming life
over corrupting death.

Thriving non-cannibals
have long chosen to serve,
love,
worship polyculturing healthy Earth,
felt through all Her TribalTimes,
by not merely commodifying the calorie value of lunch,
not extracting without reparation plans,
not using without repurposing.

Gaian Hypothetical-Prophetical God
is ReCreating humane/divine co-emergent Love
fully-invested in win/win strategies and designs
without capitalistic supremacy,
without paternalistic fake ReLigion
LeftBrain too dominantly win/lose strategic
Either-In/Or-Out cannibalistic aggressions against Outs,
too competitive to respect win/win diplomacy,
too deductively dis-associated lack of empathy,
too reductive of nature to include RightBrain spiritual-inductive awareness

Resulting in rabidly chaotic lack
of eco-messianic
co-arising mindfulness
of Who serves secular/sacred EarthIntegrity,
What left/right bilateral co-intelligence could re-connect
becoming win/win Why

We struggle between fading climate health
and weathered,
inhumane,
cannibalistic-militaristic pathology.

Cannibals are those Who have no time
or patience
or curiosity
for PhiloSophias of What
Earth co-presents
and Why sacramental EarthMothers

Fragmented Responsibilities

What would it take
to understand
a right to life
includes a right to choose well-being
or failure
for one’s internal identities,
organs,
organisms?
AND
A right to choose
self-embodied empowerment,
health,
is a right to life redemptive choice
over deadening felt loss
of continuous healthy lifetime,
now present
and on through long-term future identities,

Vocations of sacred being wealth
of identity’s integrity,
rooted in EarthTribe experiences,
memories collapsed from all past life-streams.

Perhaps if we reduced abortion charges
rhetoric
from self-righteous indignation against “Murderers”
to a form of relentlessly catastrophic manslaughter
no child of capitalism has not known
at least in lack of active co-investing intention,
passion to open a dialogue door
toward win/win complexly inter-connected solidarity
rediscovered within healing discernment
about who is responsible for choosing this win/lose slaughter
and who is not responsible
for lack of win/win options.

Should we actually find
at least some One innocent enough
to cast the last win/lose might makes right
evolutionary stone
aimed against the rest of us
for massive lack of win/win hope-inspiring integrity

That iconic One
radically free from transparently disvaluing vulnerable lives
and toxic choices
to slaughter part of our sacredly connected selves

Free for listening to our own shared experience
of this interdependent Earth life web,
Longing for more resilient
sure
buoyant healthy,
co-relational, without cancerous mutiny,
co-creation
liberating Earth life for slow-growing ever deeper
interdependent win/win choice,

Wherever
and whenever EarthTribe will listen to loss and gain
freedom and pain
internal yet multicultural GoldenRule voices
against throwing stones
against cooperative-intended health care
as if we and they both mattered;

Mother and child,
EarthMother and naked
vulnerable
divinely humanizing children
reborn into Earth’s continuing potential
for unfragmented Paradise.

ReDesigning US Monkeys

Designs we find democratically attractive
include designs for acquiring healthy trust powers
with all others to be positively infected
by our mutual discussion,
dialogue, respectful discernment,
our listening with silently authoritative skills
before responsibly speaking,

Democratic designs acquire cooperative consensual power
of a healthy
robust
resilient
care-giving super-majority,

Messiahs, economic and politically empowering actors,
producers of well-being,
empirical without imperialism,
without pietistic Raptures,
historical escape magic-hatches
removed from RealTime felt and thought integrity,
heart and mind synergy

Still actively listening for remaining white supremaists,
anti-democratic colonizing fundamentalists,
un-evangelicals too clear only about what we are against
while teaching Sunday School
and weekday extractive extorting capitalist competitions,
calling out fellow slum lords,
watching enviously while weapon sales
generously feed automated death lobbyists,
and mystify angry ecofeminists
about what we stand healthy for

Nondualistic, undividing natural health from spiritual wealth
responding to left-brain dominant designs
with monoculturing effects
disempowering into self-isolating fear
and anger
and bigotry,
lack of courageous curiosity
to empathize with anti-democratic intolerance.

This difference between democratic cooperative designs of attraction
and anti-democratic capitalist principles
of egotistical design,
incorporatistic
monoculturing extractions from MotherEarth refinements

Health care supported by all
who would replace aristocratically misshaped
distant patriarchal God the SunFather
with Gaia the Original AtHand EarthMother.

All who would replace left-brain dominant thinking
with left/right bicameral prominence
of win/win
faith/hope
thought/feelings
about ego health attracting eco-wealth
more than worrying too awfully either/or
win/lose much
about extracting ego wealth from everyday resident designers
eco-healthier
nondualistic SunGod/Gaia dialogue refiners
of romance
mythos
logos eco-habitat voices
with theo/democratic cooperative trust empowerment
enlightenment
enjoyment,
awesome sacred/secular wonder
revisiting lavishly holy/holonic designs.

Capital Congestion

Green currency
currently has a capital city way
of ungreening pastures,
dying waters,
spoiling mother lands,
decapitating valleys of red-flowing death,
fears of divested breath,
war-torn unvictory gardens,
childhood dreams of peace
and nightmares
of capital-infested war machines,
robots,
goose-stepping soldiers
bearing automated black and white rifles,
either death or life,
you or me,
mutually ungreen
disempowered,

While cooperative
deep qualitative
memories of Earth, pre-capitalized,
and healthy ego wealth
playing ecological green win/win
nurtures greener theological pastures,
and cooperative self-government of grace
restoring living ecosystemic waters
of justice,

MotherEarth flows uncapitalized nutrients
dark and light
wane and waxing childhood lucid dreams
no greener than just right.

Listening for Sustainability

My daughter,
with Fetal Alcohol crippling emotional intelligence damage
and Cerebral Palsy perpetual TerribleTwo
“is too many,
because Earth is all about ego-defiant me”
has taught herself
to attach her lips,
and sometimes her wet licking tongue
when she is feeling particularly needy
and/or playful
or maybe just hungry,
to my male dominant capitalist-head
when she needs to feel noticed
attached
connected
invested in
better.

This Saturday morning
she commits the unpardonable sin
of waking up before seven a.m.
Eleven is closer to her business as usual.

After bath and costuming,
both accomplished with as little support from me,
autonomously distracted, as possible,
she goes to our kitchen
to watch her favorite animated song and dance loops
on It’s All About You
Tube.

I am hanging out with my son,
also with cerebral palsy,
but unable to walk without balancing assistance
and unable to talk in either direction,
talk back or proclaim forth,
which is more his sister’s favorite skill set.

After a few minutes
of only slightly compromised peace
this sunny summer Saturday morning,
the daughter comes in
to demand her support staff (me)
prepare her royal breakfast (immediately).

I invite her to self-serve.

She says No!
repeatedly
while I remind her
she is capable of going to the freezer,
extracting one microwave pancake and sausage
on a stick,
wrapping it in one square of paper towel,
opening the microwave door,
placing it on the rotating glass plate inside,
closing the door,
pushing 1, 0, 0,
waiting for the ding,
and removing her breakfast by holding the stick,
waiting for it to cool,
removing the paper towel,
and devouring the pancake,
then the sausage,
as usual.

She responds
I want you to do it.

I respond
I want you to do it.

“No, Help me!”

“I am helping you!”

“No!
You do it; not me!”

“Why?”

“Because I”m watching my tablet.”

“And I’m trying to meditate
and write!”

“No! Help me!”

So, I ask for a time out.
We have been at this same impasse countless times.
It’s a ritual,
obsessive and compulsively lose/lose.
We are both not listening
while we are also not meditating
and watching
and writing healthier song and dance stories.

What’s happening here?
You know you can make your own breakfast.
Is this about not wanting to be alone?
Do you want me to show you
how crazy I am about you?

“Can I have a kiss?”

And then we do the “my lips on your head”
And “my head on your lips” ritual.
I give her a back and shoulder massage
while she has her therapeutic attachment breakfast.

My daughter smiles,
leaves the room without further demands,
goes back to the freezer,
pulls out a Blanketed Pig
on a stick…

I go back to writing
about resilience
and remediating potential lose/lose Earth climates
and emotionally cooperative reparations.

My son goes back to sleep,
having had a good belly laugh
at our curiously outspoken craziness,
reminding me
Curiosity is a more effective left-hemisphere tool
than working hard to feel right-hemisphere patience
in the face of apparent weapons
wielded by alien win/lose forces
in an otherwise win/win potentiated
interactive ego/eco-system.

He sits up,
groaning
repeatedly,
until I re-emerge
aware
He needs a diaper change,
on this peaceful sunny summer Saturday morning
riding still-revolving climates of Earth
re-creating green-blue-red
ultra-nonviolent win/win living systems
of actively communicating co-enlightenment.

Maybe we’ll have lunch on the backyard deck
under our barn red umbrella
as the Thames River continues to flow downstream
from northern stars
toward southern sun sustaining states.

On Health We Agree

Earth History, lectured Fr. Time,
has always favored leftbrain culture,
too either/or bipolar
to rightbrain’s more both/and interdependent way
of feeling and touching,
hearing before seeing and speaking
in rhyming reason,
not out of season.

It was leftbrain’s technology of coins
that led to capital value economic systems
severed from nutritional ethics of ecological relationship
connection
co-attachment
of leftbrain healthy intentions
with rightbrain wealthy sensations

For secular thoughts and sacred feelings
surrounding
embracing
inviting physical integrity
with metaphysical sweet spots
longing for climax
regenerativity
resonance
resilience.

Our leftbrain cognitions
reasons
awareness
remain culturally suspicious
of rightbrain’s primordial ecofeminist wildness,
attachment to both/and interdependent webs
where leftbrain would liberally build, at healthy best,
egalitarian walls of fragmentation
between identities of loyal egocentric
anthrocentric wealthy nations

Now composed of rightbrain under-educated
under-formed atrophy
of rightbrain both/and co-passions,
healthy-wealth of eco-political family empowerment Time

For MotherEarth and I
to reconnect healthy rapture
with wealthy liberal resilience,
both/and attachment feelings
with either/or discernment revolutions
less industrial
so more organic,
less patriarch competitive
so more ecofeminist cooperative,
less colonizing divestment of under-performing rightbrain properties,
so more robust creolizing transubstantiations
of communal left/right
ego/eco
health/wealth compassion therapies

Balancing nutritional polycultures within
while harmonizing health/wealth climates without.

EarthMother co-responds,
My sacred creation story is this same integrity’s potential future,
but begins win/win upon Fr. Time…

On this we agree,
writes and prints,
publishes then promulgates Fr. EnLightening Time
to and for and with all EarthMother’s fertile tribes
capable of listening
and remembering multiculturing DNA’s regenerate history,

LeftBrain colonization appropriates aggressively
anthropocentrically
monoculturally
industrially commodifying EarthMother’s healthy wealth,

Exercising supreme ecopolitical control
over Earth’s multiculturally compassionate webs
of polypathic future regenerations
reknitting
reweaving
restoring leftbrain natural health
with rightbrain spiritual wealth,

Favoring cooperative capital co-investments
over competitive
either/or
capitalism unholy divestments
from Earth Rights and Responsive Responsibilities
of all sacred communing
climaxing EarthTribes.
