DiSpiritual Aches and Pains

I have questions
about spiritual problems
with natural causes.

These questions
themselves
assume a metaphorical double-bind
co-passion in-between
Left with Right hemispheres
in Nature with Spirit bilateral dialogue

Informed, I hope,
by win/win historic experiential roots:

What has “nature v spirit” tension meant
in my life?

What have been my win/win
win/lose
lose/lose experiences
with natural Earth?

How has my relationship with nature
been a solitary
and/or communal
experience?

What are my poems,
music,
choreography,
photographs,
scripture
about nature
that feel meaningful?

How do these communications
separate humanity
from nature
and/or include human beings
becoming compassioned within nature?

In my learned theology
ecology,
are we spirits
or saints
or souls
or divinely inspired supernatural creatures
creations,
wanting to be raptured away from natural Earth?

Is Earth both an exterior natural
and interior spiritual potential
integral Paradise,
an EarthTribally cooperative Garden,
growing both spirit nurturing healthy truth
and nature healing wealthy beauty,
democratic health/wealth trust,
secular/sacred energy
synergetically balancing democracy?

Do I sometimes feel hopeless,
and do I long to be able to feel warmth,
welcome,
and belonging from Earth HerSelf?

Am I often confused and bewildered?
Do I wish I remembered
or knew
what eco/theo-logically harmonic clarity
might feel like?

Do I feel a distrust so deep
that I would need a win/win trust transplant,
a replanting revolution,
in order to ever feel faith
in anything again;
including my own ego/eco-identity?

Do I need acknowledgement of my original mortal life-line,
from win/lose natural beginnings
ending in inevitable loseEgo and loseEarth?
Was mortal self-identity
like a spirit v nature bomb
that destroyed my original win/win promise
born of Earth
and all of win/win rapturous humanity
in each timeless moment
of human nature’s spirited experience?

Do I need absolute guarantees
of win/win protection,
compassioning simplicity,
and restorative peace
reweaving short-term
through long-term
ease?

After engaging this list of self-medications,
does climate resonance,
internally spiritual
and externally natural,
feel lose/lose further apart
or win/win
more cooperatively ego/eco-therapeutic?

 

Note:

Most questions above are adapted from two sources:

NonViolent Communion

A positive,
though obscure and academic
and also too multi-syllabic
way to say “non-violent communication”
which is rather like saying “non-oxymoronic”
because we are left wondering more precisely
what these terms could less aggressively not include,
is “enthymematic communication.”

Enthymematic messages
always carry positive
health-inspired,
wealth-intended
Both/And
Left with RightBrain balancing,
co-empathic co-passionate rooted
inside mood matches outside receiver’s verbal/non-verbal climate

Of multicultural polypathic resonance,
sensitivity,
solidarity with eco-receiver’s
personal/political WinWin trends,
multigenerational historic/herstoried Yang/Yin
Left liberally embodied
with ElderRight conservationally minded
DNA health/wealth traits.

So, you can see why “non-violent communication”
doesn’t quite seem to capture it’s full revolutionary
restorative justice potential
within compassionate green peace
ecological
theological
nature-spirit non-sectarian
enthymematic
polypathic
transubstantiating secular/sacred communions
for deep learning universal/unitarian
100% Zero ZenZone integrity

Of bicameral positive psychology
RealTime healthy energy democracy
for green EarthTribe non-manic sanctuary
cooperatively-owned communication potential,
voiced enthymematically
by all chirping and tweeting and surfing and swaying
and jumping and swimming
and dancing and singing
cooperative communion to-gatherers.
