Intolerable Questions

Is it a virtue
of legal, or just plain logical, process
to tolerate the morally intolerable?
Regardless of therapeutic opportunities to communicate dissent,
loud and clearly vocalized
articulate and explicit resistance.

Is it an immoral act
to participate in the Win/Lose market for climate pathology
if you could not know whether you are recast as oil-baron predator
or as a life-long perpetual child
praying for matriarchal cover?

Is it a corrosive vice
to tolerate the intolerable?
To settle for only Win/Lose options
in a ZeroSum stingy world.

Do I tolerate, even celebrate,
most everybody except those who are intolerant?

Why does feeding openness
to tolerating change
feel so risky?
Alarming past critical events
confronting disloyal oppositions
fade into memories of chronic dis-associations
against those also intolerant in diverse ways.

Am I a good person
if my most celebrated values advocating diversity,
and my more internal integrity of voices valued
and heard,
and cared for
feel like fragment fading shreds
of intolerable wonder and awe?

Why is your here and now intolerance
of fearful-future intolerance
against accepting invitations to stretch tolerance?
Now invested in building apartheid-trusting walls
rather than win/win interdependent webs.

Why is my self-righteous intolerance
fair,
just?
Yet your fears and terrors,
impatience and suffering,
intolerable neglect
of win/win mindful opportunities
are not OK,
not healthy democratic enough,
too elitist,
too explicitly ignorant
of implicit win/win hope
remains at least non-lose/lose communication,
verbal and non-verbal,

Still open to becoming more virtuously,
and legally,
tolerable.

Blue PostThanksgiving Muse

I wonder if best practices for celebrating thanksgiving
for all we have and are already
would not be immediately returned to BlackFriday
celebrating all we do not yet have
and are already not enough.

I would, instead, become more everyday respectful
during this EarthSoul incarnation
empowering my mortal EgoBody.

Earth feeds humanity gratitude.
Humanity breeds future EarthSoul
from generation breathed
and spawned
and beaten
and bled into regeneration.

To let go of Ego’s comfort Home
is to grow eco-responsive strength,
flowing resilience across timeless coincidentally unflowing events,
experience,
memories,
images watched and heard
and smelled,
tasted and felt,
intimately reknown Soul

To give up on Ego’s fake security
by conserving paranoid defensive rights
to absence of thrival beauty risk
to absorb Earth’s integrity opportunities
multicultural homeless restlessness to travel
and learn,
dance and sing, yet more
from this embedded ancient river of revolving Time
flowing up and down streams of ribboned flow
through nurturing EarthSoul rooted selves.

To release thanksgiving dreams of independent glory
to grab authority of interdependent cooperative governance
of communion, sacred gratitude
knowing secular integrity,
polypathically holonic flow of bilateral Time,
Positive psychology’s systematic ecological creation
of co-acclimating theologians
speaking multiculturally languaged wonder,
after hearing shared global SacredAwe

To abandon Ego’s fear and angry memories
of past isolations and loser Death
embraces co-responsibility for powers of sacred
ecological consciousness
through non-violent communion,
secular synergetic eco-empathic communication, LeftBrain
mindful of interdependent sacred integrity, RightBrain
of EarthSoul’s original HealthHere/WealthNow Intent

What is least ZeroZone unique about each humane becoming Ego
is also what is most resonant
with all prior EarthSoul regenerations
of light and healing word.

What is most homeless about co-arising Identities
wounded and suffering and lost in uniquely passioned ways
is also most EarthCentered Nest

Riding interdependent rivers,
like Moses in a basket,
made of strings from regenerate healthy streaming BiNomialTime,
NaturalTruth with SpiritualBeauty

I would become more thanksgiving responsible
as this EarthSoul
empowering nature/spirit nonduality
co-gravitating ego/eco-consciousness,
still deep listening
for ecological theology
of Original ZeroZone Integrity

Of BiLateral Time
as known in EarthSoul
becoming Here/Now
SpaceTime EcoTheologians
for Gratitude
Original Humane/Divine Democratic CoOperative Attitude.

SoulQueen Questions

Are your customers
your students,
your patients and clients,
your constituents,
cash cows
and potentially bullish runaway viral markets?
Or cherished neighbors
and healthy allies?
Asked the newly retired Queen of Soul.

Are your kids,
Are your grandparents,
Are your future and past generations
of exponentially growing DNA diversity
competing chauvinistic wealth investors?
Or co-investors in cooperative health-soul development?

Is there really nothing between such hell
and heaven?
I asked in return.

Only self-perpetuating purgatory
for those who insist on responding to soulful questions
with devil in the details questions.
that don’t correctly begin
with mutually spelled out
respect INTEGRITY.

Choosing Integrity

Ultimately
what we respect
and whom we love most dearly
emerge from past relational choices we have made

Ideally
intentional choices toward healthy integrity.

Yet too often
merely blundering along
hoping against reasonable faith
to avoid ultimately pathological trauma

I may not truly believe in heavenly peace,
but I sure as hell want to avoid even more hell.

Settling
for short-term band-aids
covering over long-term,
possibly even multi-generational,
therapeutic opportunities
to set aside retributive pay-back politics
perpetuating denial of ecological wisdom
and disassociation of human nature
from all sacred Earth natures.

Ultimately
no one actually prefers to set aside gratitude
for opportunities
to experience love’s integrative powers,
to embrace our own past and future EarthMothers,
to be filled with Her and His radiantly nurturing Wonder
and holy Awe
within FatherSun’s radiant light
and regenerative powers of ergodic-harmonic Matters;

Ultimatums
are a planetary polyphonic ribbon
of historic revolution
still emerging from sacred Light’s heart
and mind
of divinely bright
sacred Love
of and for cooperative Win-Win life
and notnot evil
Lose-Lose
inevitably dualdark
anti-economic
and anti-political disempowering
and anti-ecological
bad faith choices.

Ultimately
what we respect
and whom we love most dearly
emerge from past integrity choices we have made.

Broken Planting Oaken Tree

We have tree traditions,
still accessible in diverse backward
and forward
reforesting cultures,
of planting a commemorative tree
when a great and portentous series of loving events
comes to its untimely rest.

Recently
my middle son’s lifetime friend
decided it was time to travel with the starlight
and so he left us heartbroken,
trying to be happy for him,
and sad without him,
to become OK with his decision
that he had uncovered enough sadness
despair
depression.
His final vote was cast
and no one else was invited
to participate in his great transitional selection.

So, my son and I
will go into our messy forest
also known as the back lot,
where former residents have dumped asphalt roofing shingles,
and buried an entire breaking down garage.

If we were to dig deeper than necessary
we would probably find other mislaid treasures.
Shattered glass bottles and hearts
and open rusted food and toxic feeling cans,
and plastic of all dismembering colors
and ugly unshapely shards of angst,
but this day
we will dig only as deep as we must.

We will first visit a handful of oak babies
sprouting up under bushes in the side yard
and among poison ivy on the north side
so my son can choose which of these
will become Greg’s oak tree of new life
not beyond
yet still after suicidal death.

We will prepare this sapling’s new home,
digging a deep and wide welcoming hole
among back lot brambles of our thoughts and feelings,
then clear away potential choking vines and voices
now covering a clearing
surrounding trees have left
just right enough for a growing Greg
Large shade tree
to hug my son’s grandchildren,
and their Greg the OakTree loving children.

Then we will uproot our chosen new life tree
with reverence
and baptize her future MotherTree roots
of sacred fertility,
and as we sprinkle holy compost
to shade her vulnerable transparency to shaded light,
we will sing our allegiance to gratitude
for each life created through Father Sun,
nourished with Mother Earth,
sadly smiled with sacred GrandMother Moon,
sprinkling sounds of thanks
for each day
of each life
this oak tree,
as Greg,
will continue bringing us.

We will read and look and listen as Jesus taught
it is ungrateful sacrilege to remain angry
about not having received more grace
than we could have earned with more generosity of time,
when we could choose instead
to give thanks for each day shared with us
doing the best we can,
to give care as we would continue to receive.

Our love for Greg
grows through this oak tree’s future shade,
and west wind protection
for all our future days of thanksgiving
and suffering lost loss,
security for our children’s
healthy and happier children
knowing
remembering
feeling
sensing
this canopy grown Greg
still choosing flight
with starlight nights.

Memorial Wonder

Today we honor those who paid our price of violence
to protect us from each other’s monocultural excesses,
we remember deep respect for those who have done their best
when this was too often not sufficient
to return to a sustainably healthy life together
in their own families, prior loves now wilted.

We recognize and would redeem
returns to less peace
found in Business As Usual social reimmersion.

We wonder with their own feelings and thoughts,
reverberating through second generations of domestic stress,
about political seductive and reductive economic values
within normal human enterprise.

How and when war and terror might re-erupt
this premonitional memorial silence.
