Here Is My Ecological Faith

Here is my faith
rooted in experience
yet to flower in things unseen,
relationships unfelt,
communications not yet heard,
tasted and spit out;
Savored

When I touch another life’s body
with kindness
I am thereby touched in return
by remediation,
immediate
intimate compassion,
CoPassion

Perhaps this is also innocently true
of touching minds
with kind and curious intent,
compassionate purpose,

But,
that is about my active hope,
already extending out
further family projections
from healing inside faith experience
that reemerges faith healing imaged future,
fluidly resonant
and co-presently resilient.

Two Mints In One

My multiculturing sanctuary
includes an anti-racism team.

Our closest synagogue ally
has an anti-defamation league.

Both my Team
and our League
are against contempt for Earth
and all Her natural/spiritual Tribes and Systems,
Networks and PassionStories.

We are composed of anti-patriarchal feminists
not against non-violent actions,
and against non-verbal
and verbal
and pre-verbal
and reverberating
not-healthy communications.

For shared agendas
that feel so robustly positive
by discovering mutual resonance
hoping for immediate
through long-term resilience,
cherishing an experience of healthy
cooperative
interfaith family,
It feels surprising how our culture,
verbal and non-verbal language
grow so replete with double-negatives,
double-binds,
not not positives
stuck in fight or flight immobilization

Looking for more robust defining ways
to claim cooperative economies,
compassionate ecofeminist politics,
integral win/win healthy democratic strategies
for ego and eco-systemic
polypathic
polyphonic
therapeutic wealth.

Peak Experience

Back in late pre-millennial times
of lava lamps
and Rolling Stones,
many searched for peak experiences,
in response to valley depressences
repressed
suppressed,
rather than panoramic,
even revolutionary,
resonant and resilient impressions.

Peak experiences were,
and still are,
I am told by those who’ve had them,
personal,
individualistic,
or possibly dyadic climaxes,
but probably not orgiastic,
which is more of a swarming bee thing
co-spastic
if I accurately follow their pollination story
through its peaks and valleys.

Abraham Maslow talked
and wrote
about climbing a hierarchy of sensory needs,
from survival attachment
up to thrival
growing toward a more interdependently accessible peak
and descending for a more independent survival battle
to return to more cooperative peak health experiences
of left brain articulating thought
and right brain consciousness
of up and down
valley repression
and mountainous impression
feelings.

Now in post-millennial times,
pathology has become a climatic
traumatic
despairing experience of climate anxiety,
prompting new internal/external searches
for ways to optimize globally resilient peak experience.

For this,
we need the miraculous mysterious mysticism
of cooperative win/win integrity
in-between and among all ecological living relationships
sailing up and down river systems
and across mountain forests
and through all creatures and creations,
lovers and healthy loved,
rhetorical lived events
and historical reflective advents

Tipping between yesterday and tomorrow
resonantly lived
ego peak safely and yet freely eco-valleyed
spiritual health
within flowing messianic times
of natural wealth.

Fractured Caregivers

“If I could turn you on,
if I could drive you out of your wretched mind,
if I could tell you
I would let you know.”
R. D. Laing

Ronald Laing
was a troubled psychotherapist
and a notoriously terrible non-dad
who heard dark voices in double-binding schizophrenia.

Knots of contradictory negative emotions,
needs,
troubling demands and troubled expectations
non-verbally underlying attachments,
sensed relationships
between two people
and within families,
and other,
larger
eco-politically Stated, and officious, Voices.

I need you
to want to be with me
not because I need you
to care for me
and about us.

I do not need you (society, Earth)
to want to be with me
because I need you
to care for me
and about us;
regeneratively double-bonded.

Laing could not see
these two “not”s
as both/and resiliently knotted
at peace with each other’s harmonic in-between strains;

The geometrics
of and in-between not-not
can equal a positive.

His solution was inclusive rebellion.
I wonder what mine will be,
has been.

I hope for a 2020 revolution

rather than left-brain detachment deflowered.

Enchanting Mother Fish

To find enchanting integrity,
She transparently confronts her disenchantments
with present and past toxic flow,
disempowering absences of synergetic experience,
like rape and enslavement and aggressive commodification,
disharmonic songs
without time and space
for proper therapeutic dance,
desecrating liturgies of everyday.

Disenchantment
unveils what and where
and when and why
newborn
we belong within enchantment,
ecstatic and just plain ornery
ordinary static.

And yet,
we focus on this polarity
as if any one day and night
were all positive ecstasy
or negative static
while darker disenchanting days
of rain and pain
can bring ecotherapeutic memories
of sunny gains
through past regenerations
more than mere degeneration.

As EarthMothers often say
among our own schooling selves
and to our spawning young:

Bad days and nights,
We will know these,
climate health and pathology,
as we also hope for delights.

Choose battles,
Pick poisons,
don’t gulp them all.
Some are more disenchanting nights
with longer darker terms,
more seductively yet reductively
unveiling memory’s disenchanting dust
through past enchantments.

Unorthodox disenchanting rust
unveils potential
for integrity’s more enchanting return
to grace of well-sung cooperative place
and beauty’s eternally relentless face,
pace,
absence of disenchanting disgrace.

Disenchantment with personal
and familial
and community
and state
and school
and religious
and national
and global disabilities
on our worst chaotic dismal days
haunting through our relentlessly stuck nightmares
unveil potential therapeutic integrity
as enchanting special abilities
for multiculturing therapeutic wealth
of cooperatively-held health
through timeless solidarity
of Oceanic Ownership mentality.

As other people’s creation stories,
then other species’ narratives
turn from mere entertaining escapes
from our daily addiction
to a disenchanting society
of Ego’s inside epic endless tale,
and turn toward surprising eco-invitations
to see and hear mutually owned integrity of grace
and mendacity playing with disgrace,

Disenchantment,
motivating escape,
slowly unveils cooperative enchanting potentials
for growing ZeroZone mutual WinWin integrity,
inside out toward light’s everyday enchantment
with EgoHere greets EcoNow,

Integrity’s residential flow
enchantingly co-present

As transparently enchanting
water streams
within and without
a dancing mother fish.

The FeelGood Rally

A difference between co-dependent feel-good rallies
and interdependent revolutions
is also the difference
between Negative LoseLose bipolarity
and Positive WinWin Energy,
dipolar co-arising.

CoDependency is a double-binding
tolerance of addictive mendacity
sharing common grounds of fear and anger and hate
with corresponding lack of freedom’s non-violent gratitude
further imprisoning future LoseLose lack of love relationship,
co-listening
co-empathy
eco-listening
golden rule hearing
golden invitation speaking
WinWin fullness of integrity,
multicultural interdependency,
our own secular and sacred Original Intent
as we each continue to emerge
from healthy-wealth
of matriarchal co-operative incubating wombs
mentoring interdependent democratic maturity.

A codependent rally
is not the advertised interdependent revolution.
