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.”

Overwhelm our love

EarthMother EcoMuse

When reading
and singing
and dancing poetry
enspiriting choreography
of emotively ecological
geography,

I need not check my LeftBrain dominance
at rhetoric’s healing door,

But bring Him/Her with me
once more

To heal chaos

What EarthMothers preach
and practice
and adore

No severance between Earth’s natural systemic Truths
and Ego’s spiritually animated
reweaving complex Beauty
denying doubts
not not double-binding Fractures.

Passion Works and Plays

Propriety
belongs to a
society
as dignity
sings my song strong
individuality

Both benign
characteristics
earned right through
win/win wellness statistics
comparing
individualistic
flawed integrity
of Othering patristics.

Improperly colonizing
militarized monoculturing
choosing bitter
unbetter capitalizing

A worn down path
of ZeroSum assumptionizing
improper wealth baptizing baths
of undignified conclusions
unholy rising

Directed by a demonic god
weak and/or promiscuous
slatternly sinful goddesses

Eating Earth’s own children
when Her Consort’s favorite book
calls for religious recipe looks
of meaty mighty
sacrificial ingredients, cooked

For at least comparatively improper
social climate change
and oppositionally degenerative
personal political
lack of win/win gain

Integral knowledge
of which comes first,
propriety of worshipping Earth’s
sacred ecosystemic birth
or healthing dignity
of individual bursts
into enlightening constellations
and empowering corporations
and health wealthing cooperations
for polyculturing peace
resonant rebirth.

Earth health and safety
already pre-supposes sensory
dignified Mother propriety
v patriarchally improper memory
of a nationalistic society
rather bicamerally unbalancing
would-be patriots
of universal health integrity

Of and for healing
win/lose ZeroSum fractured stealing
from win/win Futures holistic
not not ZeroZone revealing
appropriately integrative
double negative co-relatives
of individuals socially sensitive

Compassion’s mind-invested work

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

Rainbow Holistic
iconic transubstantiating healthy-wealth
double-binding
co-arising relationships
matter too

Binomially
bicamerally ubiquitous
almost ridiculous
to dualistically ignore
nature/spirit’s co-intelligently regenerate
preference for healthy association
rather than unwealthy dissociation

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

Win/win
cooperatively nuanced complexity
within a hyper-estatic Goddess Gaia Nest
for ecofeminist students
of win/win ecopolitical empowerment
enlightening our already holonic NonZeroZoned spirit
of EarthNature’s restoring sacred hand

Naturing Compassion’s LeftHemisphere
deductive strength of reconnecting thoughts
with RightHemisphere’s inductive flowing feelings
for restoring EarthHealth
wealthy peaceful passions

Without win/lose partisan Doubt
and with win/win eco/theo-logical
bicameral Decision

NonViolently,
and, more precisely,
compassionately delivering us
into this sacred ClimateTime
of health/wealth optimizing choice.

Ecological Process Theology

If theology is the study
of ecological experience
most ruddy

I call on Yang’s higher powers
and Yintegrity’s deeper showers
of omniscience
and sensual omnipotence

Internal light
and externally powerful
omnipresence
naturally pantheistic
and spiritually panenegoistic

Cooperatively health
and resiliently wealthy
safe ecological co-empathic relationships
swelling expansive anthros less pessimistic
experienced with LeftBrain dominantly speaking egos
with theologically experienced reflection
realistic

To RightBrain bilateral eco-systems
of spirited-nature nonviolence
as yintegral Yang’s potential economic balance
less divisibly autistic

When individuals may be egos
and corporations
and incarnations
and monoculturing
colonizing nations

Closed and Open missions
Win/Lose and Win/Win
ZeroSum divisive
and NonZero full-global missive

Slipping down into degenerative
lose/lose Hell non-survivable
or heading up into regenerative
Heaven holistic
nondualistic
transcendent thrival

Where theological resonance
greets ecological resilience

Then monocultural predation
slips behind polycultural intention
extension of capital enlightened economies
for multi-theological health
and political empowering ecologies
of poly-nonpathological wealth

Theologically reflecting
on nonviolent communication
holey re-poleing sense systems
thriving by polyvagal win/win default
neuro-ecological can’t resist’ems

If theology is our study
of Earth’s ecological experience
most rutty

UnDomestic Wilderness

When thinking of indigenous wisdom,
I feel more globally open,
more universally connected,
hoping to hear with multicultural listening ears
and astutely perceptive eyes
deductively retouching
inductively felt nonviolent communications
with all natural/spiritual dipolar
bicamerally balanced EarthTribes
present
immigrations from Earth’s past
emigrations toward co-passioned future

EarthMother Wisdom
is what I mean
to fulfill resonant-resilient

InBetween sacred Heaven’s radiant health
and natured Earth’s empowering wealth
for restoring EarthMother Justice

By means of internally

Universally bicameral unitarian

Healthy Climate Culture

We are here
sexing
and singing
mindfulling our Perceptions and Questions
together in this now present
gifted Time

To eat and work together
for our cooperative
and ancient thriving health care,
of course,

But,
also,
and perhaps even more pre-historically
pre-anthrosupremacy,
to sing and dance together
to win/win play our root vibrant chakras,
and cooperatively think
by feeling together
sharing co-invested sacred wonders
and compassionately embodied awe,
of course,

And to embrace our EarthTribe sexuality,
our wild natural spirited climates
of climax and relax,
elapsed spacelessness
and relapsed time
of Yang and Yintegral
Heaven/Earth CoOperative Peace

Between ego Patriarchs
and ecosystemic Matriarchs,
transgenderal
multigenerational
regenerative democratic
organic organizing

Evermore sacred,
less merely secular sensory-neural systemic
LeftBrain verbalized reflections
transmutations
transfigurations
transcendent transubstantiations

Climax Yangish revolutions
of a sacred penetrating mountain
baptized in EarthPowered ecofeminist flow
of HereDivine/NowHumane
bilaterally resonant enlightenment
delight

For a global health/wealth
positively developing
unfolding
reweaving climate
of this
our politically correct time together
within Earth’s Great PolyCulturing Communion.
