Pandemonic Hope

“I believe in the sun
even when it is not shining”

I remember someone recently resaying
what has long lain unsaid
inside my paradoxical head,

When asked if I believe in God,
I don’t know what to say.

I might not believe in your God,
at least on my worst
pain-darkened day.

And,
I seem to believe in my own
only in those rare rain-free moments
healthy ego- and eco-gratifying

When I am having a climax heart
and head
song
and dance remembering
re-ligioning
reconnecting EarthMoment

Shared with at least one Other,
perhaps for our first through last time
in this
our day of sacred synergy

Sustaining
surrounding
celebrating a yellow morning
mellow sunrise
promising this wealthy day
without soggy rain

As we prepare to health harvest
warmly fragrant sun-dried hay
I quietly say

So, there is a God,
after all.

“And I believe in love
even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God
even when he is silent.”

These two additional beliefs
feel like one Relief Belief
to my bicameral head choice
and heart voice.

For it has often been said
and felt
that God is love

Especially when
Matriotic HolySpirit of Love
doesn’t act like a Patriarchal Fool

And, by that,
I reference my own sociopathology
of privileged entitlement
monoculturally over-invested
in capitalist Straight
White
Earth Predations
Colonizations
Extractions
Rapaciousness

But,
my most courageous inscriptions
of whispering hope
often not felt enough
sacredly chosen silence
in spaces between
my LeftBrain dominant
distracting notes

Where my own AnthroSupremacism
falls vibrantly listening
to responsively hear
Elder MotherTrees
sigh
and breeze

Silently praying
for strong rooted
cooperative integrity

Within this organic Green Communion
forest of hands on
generating regenerous Hope.

Note:

Pandemonic Hope is part of a series of theological reflections offered to and from the All Souls Unitarian-Universalist Choir in New London, Connecticut. 

“Inscription of Hope” was composed for the Nebraska Choral Arts Society and Children’s Chorus by Z. Randall Stroope, in conversation with a Russian Folk Tune.¬† His lyrics are drawn from an inscription on cellar walls hiding Jews in Cologne, Germany, during World War II. Stroope’s own 1994 reflection on the significance of these words, in this Holocaust pandemonic context, “Hope was all they had to hold on to; hope was their only bridge to a brighter [nonviolently restoring¬†justice] tomorrow.”

Eighth Grade English

Back in Eighth Graded Class
of StraightWhiteMale English privilege
I learned all healthy narratives
must have at least one
of these three tension intentions:

Like sacred mythic prayers
and fables invoking
poetry and soulful
gospel anthems

Of StraightWhite Man v AnthroOther

Or StraightWhite ManBody v EgoCentric Self

Or StraightWhite ManSpirit v Earth’s Sacred/Carnal Nature

I was disappointed
with the LeftHemisphere narrow-mindedness
of these three Either/Ors
which my RightHemisphere
could more deeply hear
as monocultural lack
of inter-trinitarian
Both HumanTrauma and DivineTherapy
in integrity’s polyculturally inclusive
compassionate Earth Communion.

I thought I had seen and heard
lack of heart resources
among AnthroSupremacist early philosophers
and scripture righter downers
instinctively suppressing liberally democratized
polycultural health-systemic
polypathic compassion communicating
polyphonic harmonic resounding
polyvagal neurosystems
most actively hoping health
among win/win economically enlightened
and politically empowered EarthWomanists.

I’m sure I still can feel touched gratitude
for more healthy democratic attitude
co-governing cooperative green co-investments
in EarthMother climate
and family healthcare,
public
and domestic,
global
and local nutritional wealth conservation,

Economically bright
and politically right
ecologically tight relationships
lead
and feed
theologically mighty cooperative reflections

Politically correct
replete with regenerative
healthy co-redemptive
win/win poyculturally meditative
mediation strategies seductive
among win/lose monocultural predatives,

Encouraging, perhaps, a cannabis sedative
and easing up on alcoholic dissociatives
drunk from win/lose evolutionary theories
of AnthroSupremacy Wins Earth’s wealthiest superlative
despite stumbling into humbling wounds
of multi-degenerational EcoCide

A more Left/Right Wing balanced
evolutionary race theory of white supremacy
unbalanced
mentions intrinsic narrative tensions
between peaceful intentions
and male militaristic
colonizing
enslaving
proprietary
patrilinear monocultural domination
going way back through HiStory

Toward brighter indigenous lights
of early monotheistic SunGod Worship
preferring healthier transparent light
and wealthier vulnerable win/win
co-sensory empowerment

Among prehistoric
preverbal family groups
extended kin

PanEnTheistic
early regenerational DNA co-relatives
of wavey Time integrity
and atomic faced Space

PolyHealth fed
and EcoWealth watered
compassion’s

and Yintegral NonZero

Revolution’s Peace PerSpective

Go ahead
Dare to invite him

To read you his obituary for himself

Then,

Not to out loud trust

through more transparent healthy wealth
of mutual compassion
slowly moving forward.

Then,
while opening the picnic basket
and our impassioned historic mouths
to speak of our possible future
re-amending revolution,

We take in all we can become grateful
for receiving now
here,
in this sacred dining

This Passionate Climax

Passions bring us to this sacred EarthTime.

More regenerative
when cooperative
and less resiliently competitive
when degenerative

Less producing fruit
of Future’s regenerative
integral
Whole OpenSystemic potential.

Individual subsystems more compassionately play
than dispassionately work competitively
at surviving
midst fractured remnants of a fertile Earth

Once more indigenously
nterdependently enlightening
polypathic
than a stubborn MonoTheistic
Patriarchal
Win/Lose Capitalistic Closed Entropic ZeroSum
worldview

Of sterile
LeftBrain reductively dogmatic
cynical greed,
powerlust,
competitive lack of trust,
dissonant AnthroSupreme
MonoTheistic
Othering distrust.

If my only choice
is to deify Love
or richly commodify Hate,
I will not further blaze a four lane runway
flying off toward ballistic Hell
homophobic racist bait.

If Earth’s glad regeneration
has brought human spirited nature
to this global climate crisis
of win/lose competing cleanliness
StraightWhite purity
next to Patriarchal MonoTheistic godliness

What polyculturing rooms
and stages
and universal frames remain
for compassion
more than gloom
doom
apartheid zoom rooms

To cooperatively practice healing
nonviolent meditating
win/win communicating
predator/prey creolizing
interdependently realizing

rather than unwealthy dissociation

Healthy/wealth reconnecting
inter-re-ligioning
prime relationship design

Win/win
cooperatively nuanced complexity

enlightening our already holonic NonZeroZoned spirit

Listening for Healthy Spirits

Listen my son
and you shall hear
strange curiosities
about my spiritual career.

A student of science
Left hemispheric

A student of religion
Right ancient indigenous feelings

With mindbody Left lightpowered thoughts,
ecopolitically sold wealthy mind
bought health embodied
for re-connecting Left dogmatic voiced dominance
with Right esoteric muse mystical prominence

LeftNatural and RightSpiritual rebalancing
sexy minds with sensory-neural systemic bodies
is not so re-ligiously disconnecting

Compared to appositional balance,

of health-sensed unilateral flow-evolving time,
past toward future,
seldom future re-membering past
revolving devolutions
of change forward inevitable time
seasons,

With economic and politically religious reasons
patriarchal capitalists
and ecofeminist cooperatists
mistrust each too secularizing
divorced
dissociative Other,
objectified subjects
of violently miscommunicating history.

Forward spirited flow structure
functioning anus universally back
in and forward out stimulating root chakra,
soul,
bilaterally surfing sensations
primordially oceanic.

Bilateral eyes
mirrors of health-seeking WinWins
forward thinking ears
pitched toward future healthy octaves
and safe marching 4/4 rhythms
resonant
and resilient,
left verbal
and right nonverbal communicating
communion sound
prehistoric resounds

Forward reaching arms,
palms up and open
Me embracing We
religiously systemic
sacrificial praising Yang upright
and forward position

To foot forward march
into ecofeminist EarthMother’s
future yintegrally holonic nutrition
and nonviolent communicating co-investments.

Mouth forward speaking
singing back to front,
deep to height harmonic
past through future health care
compassion giving exhales
receiving EarthMother spirited inhales
blowing up our nostrils
and sometimes out our backside
reverse oppositional renal reactions
to slow the venal stench
of our own embodied digestive processes
in partnership with forward sniffing nose

Goes and grows
toward healthy win/win positive
polytheistic
polyculturally rich fragrance
robustly safe wealth
EarthTribe resonant health

Bodies felt flying spirit-mind forward

UnSpirited Sexuality

Secularization of nature
begets secular demotion of sex
rewinds reminds reversing time
before Western therapists
of ego issues beget eco-healing medication
including secularizing meditation
into mind full of LeftBrain dominant
patriarchal
capitalization,
commercially marketed commodification
of what were once more private worship services.

Reducing sexual cooperative co-investments
to merely natural reproductive lust
or untouched genital bust
is a LeftBrain reductive Nature v Spirit sin
