Ecology of Revolution

I remember
a young child in Sunday School
wondering what Jesus meant
when he said,
I have come out

into Earth’s narrative
to turn Her upside down.

How could this be true,
when he also taught that those who receive more
will get more,
and vice versa;
less worthy grace
for less valued face.

This didn’t sound right,
yet it did seem exciting,
Like something to hope for
even though Jesus didn’t really get the job done,
or at least not here
where I was
and not now
when I am.

It has taken a lifetime
of wondering about that curious and courageous,
audacious and admonishing claim
to realize Earth’s nutritional narrative
isn’t about turning planets
or people
spatially upside down,

But is all about returning Earth temporally inside out,
back forth
reverse forward,
principles for reverting revolutions.

For example,
Indigenous wisdom understood
we are here as one people,
one sacred Tribe,
to serve the health needs
and wealth wants
of EarthMother.

Just as Western patriarchal capitalism misunderstands
Earth is here
as our anthropocentric commodity,
one secular planet
to excavate
exploit
extract
rape
enslave
colonize
market
discount
clearance sale
to sever Her health needs
from our capital-hoarding wealth wants
before She inevitably dies.

What Jesus calls upside down
and inside out,
Laotse’s listeners call
a Principle of Reversion
back to when Yin induced Yang
so Yang would compassionately deduce Yin’s love
for humane wealth Truth
serving Earth’s health-revolutionary Beauty,

With much more cooperative economic outcomes
than leftbrain dominant competitive political incomes.

Gospel Rewrites

I think, and sometimes fear,
we have two ways, maybe more,
to read the four holy gospels,
and any sacred scripture,
and any regeneration/degeneration story
of creative tension,
win/win sweet spot future aspirations
midst win/lose historic raw spots
of past experience.

We can read Earth’s inspired articulations
as a book of spiritually correct answers,
removed from complex historical-cultural context
in a move toward fundamentally correct creed development
for moral
and political
and economic
and ecological correctness.

And/or
we can listen for Earth’s expirations
and inspirations,
reading and listening to naturally spiritual correcting questions,
embedded in universal historical
and uniting multicultural content
of fundamentally healthy development
for resiliently robust climates
and cultures,
timeless times of spiraling revolutionary win/win
ego/eco-logical balance corrections.

If we too readily approach sacred scripture for morally correct answers,
we are likely to forget
divine purpose seeks better,
more inclusive,
inviting,
transparent,
vulnerable,
courageous and curious health questions.

Following Our Rules

In our Sharing Circles
we have a ground rule
to share a one speaker at a time floor
and unitarian silent listening support

And rules to not verbally share uninvited commentary
suggestions
agreements or disagreements
during, and after,
this formalized Circle.

Speakers are invited to share from experience only,
not from someone else’s story,
experiential and/or theoretical,
parental and/or academic,
personal and/or professional.

This is a Closed Circle
of verbal communications,
a rhetorically autonomous inside job
only silently noting our egalitarian
nonjudgmental
side by sideness
of authority
responsibility
compassion;

Help,
Thanks,
Wow!;

Truth,
Beauty,
Silent Passion…

If we are a composition,
we enter an historic symphony of solo voices
implicitly singing our universality
experiencing time’s nurturing
and severing qualities
and relentlessly insufficient quantity,
except when anyone else is speaking
business as too coldly
or too warmly
usual.

In our Reading Circles
our implicit ground rule culture differs
more in favor of the spontaneous spoken word,
this good news,
extemporaneous,
and bad fake news,
distemper-odious,
gospel we scribe together,

Usually one voice leading
a sustained melodic theme,
sometimes harmonic and splendid,
sometimes dissonant and diminished,
inviting in compassionate responses,
major and minor,
listening for counter-melodies,
for analogies
metaphors
curious oxymorons,
outrageous internal pun fun,
rhymes
and maybe the occasional reason,
held with soft determination
and not hard determinism.

Participants are invited to share
harmonic voices of MeToo
and to gently question why
my own dissonantly deviant choice
traps me in feeling detached,
uncertain,
less certain,
more certain we must be missing
some counter-balancing dirge of risk
and full-circle opportunities
for evolving peaceful revolutions.

We sing in Open Circle rounds
of theory meets experience
greets political philosophy
and primal attachment theory
applications to all relationships
ego logical and unlogical and anti-logical
and dis-passionate,
conscious and unconscious and suppressed consciousness
and more dispassion,
and ecological and ecosystemic
and healthy climate logical
for growing reading circles
into speaking and listening communion rounds
of timeless symphonic conversation,
dia-logos about favored/unflavored mythos.

Cooperative conveners
encourage each other
to speak from felt experience
of belief and disbelief
in some published teacher’s expression of experience
with timeless patience and time-heavy impatience,
of joy and sorrow,
courage and curiosity,
compassion and dispassion,
intimacy and repulsion,
about some subject’s story,

Where it does and does not meet our own time
chosen and not chosen
political and personal
economic and ecological
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
regressive and progressive
inhaled and exhaled
patriarchal and matriarchal
competitive and cooperative
vulnerable and transparent
longing and belonging

New yet old
wealthy when healthy,
democratic when not kleptocratic,
integral when not fragmenting,
unitarian when not too universally closed
to further sacred gospel co-inspirations,
co-passion,
co-presence,

Timeless unity
yet eternal open university,

Secure rounds
yet within freeing surrounds,

Cultural sweet spots
within historic raw plots.

Peaceful Revolutions

History
as we shall see
is inevitably
win/win felt revolutionary resonant
more powerfully experienced
than win/lose evolution
thought theoretically resilient.

Technology of YangNature,
like ecology of sacred YinNurture
begins with regenerative secular tools
for Yang’s original EarthPatriotic intentions

As seen and felt
in seasonal choreography,

Economies of nutrition tales
and transactional double-boundary strings
of double-binding attachment
to win/win multicultural health outcomes

And ecofeminist re-attaching holistic circle cords
whisper epic revolutionary rhetorical events,

Life song evolution stories
of unchoreographed spontaneity,
win/win tools for freedom
to dance with yin-spirit
more graceful integrity
than marching monoculturally
in service of LordMaster
mono-egotistic
autonomous, so venomous,
PatriarchalYang.

Feminist theologians,
like ecologicians,
urge us to refrain from devolutionary lose/lose narratives
apocalyptically dominating our sacred win/win climate view.

We seem,
at our optimistic best,
ambivalently capable
of re-creating our own leftbrain dominant
technocentrically industrious destruction
of Earth’s original organic multicultural operations,

Cooperative muses of sound,
breath,
rhythm,
pattern,
pitch,
tone,
touch,
feel,
smell,
tasting secular health without
sacred wealth within

ReMembering raw spot pathology events
with competitive distrust
and divestment,

SelfRighteously justifying our weapons
for severing nature’s healthy future
from spirit’s robust wealthy past
sweet spot renaissance complexities
musically resonant history
ecologically resilient,

LeftBrain dominant
worshiping RightBrain pre-eminent
original EarthMother creolization,
co-acclimating tool
for transubstantiating
individuation of Yang/Yin identity balance
double-binding co-perseverance,
co-passionate
ego/eco-therapeutic non-weapons
for true wealth success
worshiping beauty of Earth’s historic PeaceMuse
communion.

Dissonant music recreates
our own leftbrain dominant destroyer
of multiculturally robust outcomes
now evolving into a radically different left/right harmonic creature
we have no reason to fear
or suspect of becoming any relationship less than a healthy climate
of resilient wealth.

Our popular leftbrain dominant monoculture
evolves a merely technological hubris march
toward co-disempowering astronomical Testosterone,

Win/Lose ZeroSum geometrically predicting
our losing climate pathology future
unable to neuro-musicologically accept
cooperative win/win harmonic responsibility
for natural/spiritual symphonic
ecosystemic healthy wealth

By not over-investing
in leftbrain technologically entertaining
explosive adventure myths
and apocalyptic histories,

Prophecies born of right-wing Rapture anxieties
taking perverse escapist pleasure
nihilistically distracting our embodied ego-centers
with anti-musical fascist portrayals
of our LoseLeft v LoseRight powerlessness,
naked organic humanity v MotherEarth’s climate revenge,

Fetuses
v EarthMothers freely choosing to prey upon their own resiliently nurturing wombs,

Abortion
of freedom to choose win/win
healthy climate pre-revolutionary lives
with more bilaterally balancing harmonies
favoring resilient health/wealth
yang/yin
ego/eco-therapeutic
C/E-Musing
perfect third bicameral choice
of rhetorical voice
her with his co-passionate fertile story
revolutionarily un-weaponable.

PolyNomially healthy Muses
co-revolving sweet spot
not not
PolyPhonically resonant,
robust,
rich Music.

Mystery of internal music history,
like communal external ecology,
grows inevitably
win/win revolutionary
when more powerfully tooled multiculturally
than weaponed win/lose
dissonantly evolutionary.

Right Side of our Bed

Some mornings I awaken slowly
to knowing too much
and yet never enough.

Some nights I drift off quickly
feeling too many disassociating memories,
never inviting enough connection.

Sometimes invitation into a healthier life
feels like addiction to wealthier love.

Sometimes I wonder who decides
when a pregnancy has reached perfect climax;
Where more time inside would become toxic
yet not too soon for optimizing healthy outside invitation
into Earth’s deeper and wider Gaian womb
of spiraling revolution.

Sometimes I feel changed
transformed
more cooperatively win/win co-acclimated
transubstantiated
creolizing
reformed
returning
reviewed by EarthMother ancestors
fulfilling MotherEarth’s rebirth
of DNA-inspired nurturing nutritional prophecies
throughout history’s Six Great Extinctions.

Sometimes we become the post-millennial herstory,
perfectly timed,
not too critically hot
and not too chronically cold
AllSouls culmination of climate rebirthing risk
and mutually therapeutic opportunity;

The Seventh bicameral enrapturing regeneration,
Left ego-natures
and Right eco-spirited,
secular/sacred cooperative,
Either/Or and Both/And
RightBrain more prominently egalitarian,
win/lose and win/win strategic health-game players
universal and unitarian,
walled ego-identities
and yet webbed ecotherapists
Yanged Yinning
seventh inning,

Three diminsional massive space energy
with One ZeroZone bilaterally open dimension
linear and yet non-linear,
perhaps wave spiraling solar and lunar revolutions
from EarthMother into MotherEarth
restoring healthy prophetic rebirth,
not too ego-opportunistically soon
and yet not too ecopolitically late.

Some mornings I awaken quickly
to knowing too much toxic history
and yet never enough therapeutic re-creative herstory.

Lovers Interdependence Day

Tell me less and last
about who and what and why you hate
with militant might.

Speak with me more and first
about who and what and why you love
with brilliant bright.

I will listen all this day
and next,
all my life
if your voice can positively project
long enough to leave no time at all
for hate
and anger,
envy and fear of losing
who and what and why we love
our synergetic health
and not our too violently fragmenting pathology

Rambling on
in front of unmediating microphones and cameras
about who and what and why
healthy nutrition and nurturing natures
of vulnerable Others
compete for your empowered disdain,

While no lover
with a healthy mind and heart
would ever care to listen
this day and night.
Nor our next,

We have so many warmer,
yet not too warm,
vulnerable,
transparent,
courageous,
curious interdependent days and nights
for peaceful dialogue,
discernment,
endearing conversation.

Even in that heated time
of Declaring Independence,
when hate and anger and fear
against privileged white male royalists
and their loyalists
and their unwealthy terrorists
and their unhealthy manufacturists
run revolutionarily high,
we speak in democratic constitutions of love
about historic hates.

Yet what lawyers
and statues of Liberty
and active peace lovers hear
in and on this day
are first through last restoring just prosperity
equal dignity
freedom for individuals
families
local communities
to pursue our healthy dignity and well-being together
with liberally lavish love,
democratically inclusive integrity.

The hate and anger and fear
are dark memories still within us
in our sacred independent State declarations,
yet these fade into our unloved history
of economic and political servitude
lack of benign royal gratitude,
and are not this today revolution’s healthy attitude
for who and what and why we love
this Interdependence Day.

Speak with me more and first
about who and what and why you love
with brilliant bright.
I will listen all this green and glorious day
and next,
all our loved and lover life.

Changing Thought Systems

It is known throughout Earth’s anonymous
unanimous Commons,
Systems are hard to change.

The more macro-competitive,
Yang-strong,
The more difficult of all conversion stories

Over pernicious decades,
We tend to add “isms”
to pathological ends
of these global systemic issues.

This polyculturalistic/multiculturalism suffix,
negative appendage,
suggests a pejorative problem
of systemistic stuckness,
where once may have lived
a potential for positive
polypathic and polyphonic change
toward Earth’s greener,
more flexible,
Commons.

Ism labels warn of possible toxic contents
including racism,
of course,
and white privileged patriarchalism.

These two appear to be old friends,
as do colonialism
and Catholicism
and globalism
and monotheism,
often hiding diverse and sundry mob-rule
in sinister shapes
of secular poly-tickle-listic hyphenated atheism.

Other systemic cousins
on my networking mind
are liberalism
and capitalism
and communism
and socialism
and fundamentalism
and dualism,
separating spiritual development opportunities
from natural undevelopment risks.

Sometimes, though,
usually when I am not in crisis
but feeling emotionally vulnerable anyway,
I wonder if these impenetrable global
and nationalistic
systemic issues could call out
and in
for healthier cooperative thinking.

Not a direct assault on,
most certainly not a war against,
exterior competing systems,
But a more indirect dialogue
inviting a change in individual
and familial
and indigenous communal thinking
about win/win systems.

This cooperative bilateral thinking
scientists have labeled systemic thinking
and multicultural artists have seen and heard
smelled and tasted
touched and felt
sung and danced
as Earth ecosystemic feeling of interdependent living

Organic
integral journeys toward global meta-systemic utopia,
where naturally perfect systems thinking
syncs with
spiritually pure communion feeling.

For example,
patriarchalism becomes,
in this explicit in-between double-bounded way,
not only a chronic risk to Earth’s survival
but also an immediate everyday opportunity
to imagine aloud,
to touch with voice and hand,
to walk boldly, sometimes baldly, with feet and mind

Into a ZeroCore place
where two or more overpowering competitive Yangisms
might change evolutionary to revolutionary directions,

Directions revolutionary to evolutionary change might
grow toward one or less
matriarchal cooperative ZeroZone
of Yinistic integrity
for rebirthing regenerational
resilient
resonant happiness,
healthier nests,
wealthier eggs,

Synergetic seeds, all about potentiating possibilities
integral-spiritual
bilateral-fractal DNA discernment systems
thinking about what we are more health-cooperatively feeling

Change for wealthier harmonic becoming ecofeminist
less patriarchal,
so more yang-enthusiastically matriarchal.

Within these boundaries of vulnerable dialogue,
what have appeared to be static constipationisms,
mutual opportunistic issues,
also feel unveiled yin-flow nutritionistic
toward cooperatively appositional opportunities
to feel internal spiritual transactions,

Transubstantiations,
transliterations
into natural potentialistic,
not so much transcendently spiritualized isms,

Instead, macro-global systems
of Yang’s golden meta-health network
polypaths traveled,
Polyphonically felt absence
of perennially unfree spiritualisms,
primarily and primally due to a collective change of nutritional thinking
in systems growing healthier.

Cooperatively realistic lives
more powerful than competitive unreal estateisms,
acquired ownership of ismic properties
impregnably fragmented plots
and states of suspiciously marginal boundaries

By left-brain dominant apartheid thoughts
overpowering right-brain co-prominent organic nurture-systems
feeling
touching realistic baptismal waters plenty warm
and not yet boiling over power.

More transystemically webbed
natural spirits
than monoculturally walled

Nature against
co-passioned spirits
with ecological/theological integrity
changing meta-thought systems
felt as holistic networks for well-being.
