Prayer Stories

Who we pray to,
what we worship,
these are less important
than what we worship with,
whom we pray with,
and never against.

Yet, who we pray with
feels less important
for global peace
and restoring Earth’s great
timeless justice,
than whom we refuse
to pray with,
and sometimes,
on our worst days,
insist on judging against

And whom we have
never crossed a highway
or mine field
to pray with
is more important
to personal health
and Earth’s wealth
than whom we are willing to pray for
only from a safe distance,
and only on our most charitable days,
generously impassioned nights.

How we pray
with mouth
mind
heart
sensory body
hungry gut
passionately rooted soul,
psalms and chakras
of deliberating
dialogical sound,

This primally matters
in reproductive relationship
co-arising animus mundi
in anima prayers
with and from indigenous
wisdom for and below
above deep
and wide humanity’s
best divine prayers

Passion stories
of how active prayer
embraces intimate narratives
of spacious
sacred
solidarity

Rooted in knowing
who we pray to
remains timelessly less important
than whom we intimately
compassionately play with,
and never against.

Benediction of Return

May you soon return
not as disempowered
disabled
and woefully unenlightened,
trespassing against integrity,
against peace
and restoring healthy justice

Nor even as an honored
LeftBrain dominating guest.

May you soon return
to our compassionate Home,
where loving voices
speak up courageously
for co-empowering dances
curiously sung
in co-enlightened scales
of benediction.

Seeking Salvation in Retiring Spaces

Prayers,
sometimes lightly lyrical,
slyly satirical,
self-conscious,
ego-
and anthro-chosen folk
transcendently
yet personally
individually woke,
and sometimes full embodied
passions in Praise Him!
shout out

Echo in-
voking round resonance
with all Earth’s eternal
regenerating lively
lovely resilience.

Prayers
express “I feel”
so invoke “I want,
even actively need”
Trust Statements

Or,
prayers are LeftBrain dominant
performances
of True v False
Health v Pathology
internal v external
enlightening transcendent thoughts
v empowering emotional support,
Reason v Passion Stories.

“Lordy, Lordy
I sure do hope
for active Sunday hope
that Donald Trump
will someday,
although probably not this day,
enjoy a long
and healthy
and unusually quiet,
cruelly serene,
claustrophobically private retirement
into suffering
and mental anguish
over all his many sociopathological
sins against natural
and spiritual,
physical
and mental,
embodied and mindful health care
giving
by receiving
copassionate
co-invested communion.”

In this prayer,
what does grandmother Eartha feel?

Lack of sufficient hope
for robust and healthy redemption,
maybe sadness about humanity’s great fall
into partisan disunion,
probably chronic climate anxiety,
in which She betrays
and is betrayed by
fear of RightWing AnthroSupremacy.

Meditations
on red sky climate warnings
nonverbally remind MeSheWe
together invoke nonviolent polypaths
leading to polyphonic

for what we all,
with thriving rich resilient souls,
wish for

An unusually quiet,

From Old Testament

Nothern White epic histories
of colonization

We nearly all AnthroSupremely invoke
deep EarthTribal fears
of our own BusinessAsUsual corporate
systemic

And we are all dearly angry
about lack of sufficiently empowering
and enlightening retirement funds
and redeeming facts,

Spiraling polynomially spacious circles
of polyphonic prayers intoned
entombed beyond eternal silence
peacefully polypathic

Invoking
“I feel lyrical” performances

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.

Sabbath Prayers

EarthMother’s unwilling Emissary
asked each faith community
and patriotic party
what they thought and felt
about God’s preferential option for the poor,
despised,
criminal,
homeless,
wounded and powerless women and children,
physical disabilities,
sick,
terrified,
rabid with anger and fear,
enslaved,
addicted,
insane.

Does this sound like an accurate description
of your congregation,
your self-empowering party,
your communion of saints,
your synagogue,
your sanctuary–
or are these those who best remain outside
your ego-celebrating walls?

Why are eco-they
not ego-you
on Saturday or Sunday morning
through midnight?

Why are these not Sabbath communion participants
holding mutually cooperative
and graced space
together?

What would it take
to heal this apartheid Ministerial NonAlliance?

Our homeless youth
play a young person’s avoidance game
in which all indoor human voices,
especially those of self-anointed authority,
ministerial power,
principals of punishing study
and exclusive EitherIn/OrOut system,
administrators of capital egocentric gains,
are suspect.

These same voices
have gathered from sandy shores,
river boundary habitats,
wilderness downstream spaces,
toxic dump places,
to lead competing Ministerial Alliances
in a guided poly-path toward meditation:

Imagine
you are an African black
and Latin brown
and Earth green
and Fire red
and SunLight yellow
and Moon ultra-nonviolet
and Water transparent
and Air invisible thread,
both natural and spiritual,
within Earth’s multi-regenerational systemic network,
a tapestry sunclock-wise woven,
sunset before sunrise unwoven
north with southern dipolarities rewoven
prewoven across a universe of Time.

You have regenerative
and degenerative experiences
thoughts
feelings
choices
absence of choice,
external debates
and internal discernments,
and dialogues
in-between your LeftBrain doer thoughts
to save us sinners
and malformed win/lose supporters
and RightBrain becoming together feelings
to reweave
to cooperatively heal
resilient natural Earth systems
with resonant spirit-felt EcoOrigins

From BlackHole Wombed potential
toward wealth rainbow not-not vaporous knots
of double-binding resonant climate health,
internally right hemispheric
as external LeftYang enculturing compassion
interweaving threads
learning intersectional co-passioning resilience
in four prime-revolutionary
space-time dimensions.

Imagine
how much more health we could do
and wealthy be
together,
rather than subclimates and subcultures
competitively
and resentfully
apart.

Outside Health Habitats

Many of our most integral
holistic
spiritual,
re-ligioning,
re-connecting,
loyal pursuits
lead us on an individual
inside well-worn faithful path
that monoculturally separates
internal inside climate issues
from Earth’s vast extended family
outdoor voices
of concern and comfort.

Higher multiculturing
multi-generational
poly-regenerational truths
are also deeply sensed
outside inside quiet contemplation,
alone within four straight flat walls,
autonomously separate fragments
of global life/death epic issues

Inside silent still
contemplating past rounds
fired by negative Muses of DeGenerative Change
draws distorting hard distraught
fundamental flat walled lines
boxing in sad egos
trapped inside eco-habitat outdoor stifling
and freezing
toxic separation
within/without
severing our win/win rightbrain inside voice
from our win/lose left outside choices
as if two oppositionally defiant climate issues.

As if we are condemned to an unsustainable
bipolar
duality of mind
more chronically dispassionate
than a singular
creative dipolarity
of heart/mind
felt/thought
trust/truth

Pursuing
inviting our win/win ego/eco-nutritional truths
physically-sensually whole,
while severed from outside voices,
harmonic and dissonant muses,
longing for in/out communion,
diminishes emerging full rhapsodic chords,
Earth-sung moments
achieving wider stretching intimacy
engagement
climax

Integrity with those ecologically around us
theologically and historically within us,
healthy and pathological cultures
win/win and lose/lose,
living and dying climates
and all becomings
win/lose rounds of compromised win/win inside/outside change
in-between harmonic intervals
of full-octave Earth scale resonance,
resiliently polypathic.

Inside creations
grow more resiliently healthy
when surrounded by supportive outside meditations,
medication,
ego’s ecotherapy of healthy choice.

Songs for Reparation

When I was a male child
I prayed to an eternally mute dualdark goddess,
Gaia was our name
for each Other’s
secular
sane
sacred
sacraments to share passion.

And so I heard bird songs
praising each day’s anticipated Gaian glory,
everybody playing cooperatively nice,
or at least role playing
something less than bipartisan uncivil shame
and blame war,
laborious and hate-filled work.

When I was a child
hearing
and sometimes speaking
birdsong,
I listened for companionship.

As an adolescent,
I heard more like marketing
win/lose sensory messages
praising past
and pleading for more future
climaxes of sensory overload,
peak experiences,
zero-zone pleasures
I Am Thou
I Am That You Are

Identity Here is also individuating Now
in this singing space
bilaterally in-between wave-linear unfolding Time
in Light’s full-polyphonic resilience,
a perpetual mind-rechanging recharging communion
worthy of Earth’s praising bird song.

As a younger adult
I hear birdsongs less,
but when I do hear doves
and pigeons, they sound less of praise,
more of mourning and cooing concern,
worried about the silent witness of pelicans
and herons
listening for climates of despair degenerating
outside voices
and inside absence
of praise-worthy birdsong,
traditionally safe
and yet free-flight loving.

WiseElder bird songs
praise Earth
and Dawn
and Evening feeding supper
and then a light cool breeze summer nest
with win/win dreams
of future birds
singing with our great grandchildren
praise for such generous grace
of loving ancestors working
and playing
and role-playing Goddess Gaia voices,
Queen of CoOperative BirdSong Compassion
and win/lose courageous caution,
curious companionship,
sensory climax historic spots
and raw climate dogmatic plots
to ancient mythic creative-tensioned tales,

Voting no on democratic health
uncomfortably silent witness
by birdsong lover’s healthy vast majority
stretching to include future birds
singing resiliently
cooperatively-owned self-governance
of rhythmic structures
in praise of Earth communing communication,

Songs dawning yin toward yanglight
and sunsets more peacefully yin
harmonizing yang’s completion,
rightbrain with left,
east nondualistic philosophy of life
with west either/or reductive thinking might
about those damned silly sparrows
and pooping sea gulls
and Canadian geese
nesting near your Paradise summer beach.

I think and feel it’s best
to hear birdsong with renewed infant ears,
An invitation to each day’s new sacramental liturgy
to sing back gospel birdsongs of creation
stories felt in patterns
of sensory flow
coloring in multiculturing voices
of outside re-associating choices

Reparations for adult inhumane neglect
to listen for EarthMother’s sweet spot
invitations to feel deeply
to hear natural
refining spiritual outdoor/inside Voices
choosing win/win reparations
for past win/lose short-term
unecological
anti-theological
anti-EarthMother ecofeminist enculturation
anti-mind/heart compassionate polypaths
finally re-appreciating under-valued birdsongs

Celebrating polynomially positive zerozone identities
listening to birdsong equanimity
with polypathic not-not One yangyin fractal sum
structures for well-sung misty myths
from ego/eco-logosed love
of birdsong greeting light,
and co-relational healthy DNA wealth
of time in
and above this EarthMother
sacred singing and signing space.

Silent Night through DayTime Prayers

Before presidents and attorneys got hold of it,
and back before theologians were even a glint in the Golden GodHead’s eye,

Prayer, silent or verbose,
was filled with reminders and gratitude to ourselves
and for and from others,
with pleas for urgent help
from all souls past
and still longed for,
especially those personally remembered
by having shared this home on Earth
in more balanced golden era times
of enchanting imaginations,

And petitions
to future generations
to finish what we,
and all who have passed through before us,
have healthy started,

And to forgive us for what we have neglected to rightly left unfinish,
failed to deeply hear and see resonance,
heart and mind resilience,
feel and think restoratively
this difference between healthy resilient prayerful life
and pathological resistance
to sacred multiculturing educational re-membering
theo/ecological resources of silent EarthTribe souls.

For experiential ecologists,
and for communion theologists,
those who see cooperative nature’s climate outside
reflecting organic spirit’s health v. mortal pathology inside,
Prayer often leads from suffering impatient words and warnings
toward restoring just non-violent silence.

Life as prayer provokes a transubstantiating bridge
between past and future regenerators
for growing compassionately interdependent Left/Right Brain Egos

To travel back through origins of healthy DNA time
and forward toward omega tipping points to co-arise branching wealth
securing resilient global resonance
restoring justice
regathering Earth’s ecstatic silent communion
within AllSouls before,

Breaking through theological silence, glass ceilings,
boundaries for and against solidarity of ecstatic futures,
polycultural wealth of health outcomes,
resiliently sustainable.

Such prayer changes interdependent things, systems
transubstantiate yin-cooperative and yang-competitive relationships.

Living prayer stretches ZeroSouls
experiencing ZenZone co-empathy–
easier in communal ego/eco-dynamic
empowering ecstatic silence
of a FullMoon winter solstice night.

EarthDay Planning v Praying

Prayer’s positive potential is not as substitute for planning.

Prayer might be a prelude to planning,
and might be an appropriate postlude
to fully implemented plans,
whether psalm of gratitude
or requiem of remorse
depending on healthy and pathological outcomes.

Even better,
some gratitude and humble remorse,
held together,
demonstrating we have learned something
from our nondual co-arising trial and error
and yet continue improving
our further therapeutic refinements.

But, whether my life plans are what happened
while Earth continuously revolved in other distressing directions,
or I continue learning to plan somewhat more cooperatively
and multiculturally
and inductively and deductively co-arising
togetherly more than separately,
prayer is the active planner’s co-redemptive bookend,
Alpha and Omega double-binding points of reorientation,
not my personal How to Save the World book,
much less exegetically seminal scripture.

Prayer is my bread and liturgical garnish,
but not the red meat
of ego/ecologically balanced regenerative planning.

Earth Tribal Prayer

Show me intimately passionate ways
to incarnate political and economic cooperative co-investment
potentiality, regenerativity,
show me our climatic ecological outcomes
uniting polycultural polypathic polymorphic paradigms
of Time’s evolving light-love TransPresent
absorbing absent dualdark anger-AnthroFear
of terror’s eco-gravitating passage
through eternal ecoconscious light
of diastolic freedom-cooperative
as yang-yin co-arising
Endo/EctoSymbiotic Bliss.

Ectosymbiotic positive/negative-immune relations
spark endosymbiotic revolutions
of warm light
and cold double-bound dark thoughts,
reiteratively trapped in eisegetically echoing absent silent stasis
of timeless bicameral mindbody exegetical ecosystems
light and dark nutrient-rich appositional life
on and within Earth’s Exterior Landscape,
flowing absorbing time consumption and production
of regenerative flowers and seeds
for me to replant and rediscover,
recreate,
remember my
EarthTribe Elders.

As Quakers follow radiant light,
Laotse and UUA add,
through our universally co-arising dualdark unitarian equivalence,
DNA as YangYin embryonic birth through regenerate rebirth
of eco-cooperative Zen (0)-investment
and further enlightenment reiterative future
LightTimes of ReGenesis.

Who am I?
in Ego’s deductive dark winter of decomposing fallen seeds
and leaves and root systems,
regenerative healthy compost
composing Prime Ecological Generosity of Relationship
between
Father Sun and Mother Earth

Who am I?
springing healthy consumer of light’s optimal nutrition
and dark’s wet nights of nourishment
for diastolic/systolic beating/surfing mindbody dreams

Who are we?
in diastatic summer’s full regeneration
of bright and fertile light,
heating absorbing flows
of water’s eco-messianic baptismal promise,
waking to rainbows of morning dew paradise

Who are we?
cooperatively producing fallen winnowed harvests,
branching flowing flying scattered embryonic seeds
of time’s nutritious integrity,
advent of 4 Prime Spiral Seasons
of light’s enlightening ecobalancing growth,
dualdark rooted thermodynamic heart-flow systems
fueling Earth’s hydropowered rivers
of timedrenched polycultural becoming
light-tempered syntax,
speaking through embryonic womb-dialectic
rich nutritiously healthy ways,
DiPolarVitality weaving within and without
EarthTribe’s Solidarity Network.

Who are we as Earth-time’s rich-languaged polypathic becoming,
light of faith in God s NOW and US in Earth’s love,
permacultural revolutionary holonic designs
enfolding evolution’s nutrient language-light
of Primal EcoSystemic Relationship,
YangLeftWest/YinRightEast.

May we continue
learning cooperative endosymbiotic nature is our love-work,
AnthroTeleology,
CoOperative Vocation,
our mission and goal,
by relearning competitive ectosymbiotic nature of being,
flowing our WinLose EgoEcoConscious BiCameral Games,
to decompose our cooperative LeftRight way toward
WinWin ReGenerativity.
