DoublEdged Prophets

In prophecy
we often fixate
on time’s unprofitable passage,
on degenerative change
on long-neglected reform
on our need to redeem our time
now past.

Yet this notice of opportunities and risks
for future climates of pathology and health
is surrounded by an implicit right-hemisphere awareness,
a felt prophecy
pre-verbal
erupting from compassionate tenacity
of resilient health-wealth Time re-membered,

Matriarchal womb nurtured,
this prophetic nutrition of communal circles
and resonant spirals,
waxing and waning waves
of emotively implied pre-formation,
primal ZeroZone re-attachment
back through
and to
All Souls Yang-unfolding and Yin-refolding
universal and unitarian
strong-flowing
prophetic TaoTime;

Time tenaciously prophetic,
compassionately redeveloping integrity of health re-connected with wealth
left rationality with right synergy
polypathic thought with polyphonic feeling;

Courageous Either/Or with curious Both/And
ego/eco-logic;
Vulnerable with Transparent
prophetic polyculturing communication.

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.

Educating Roots

I have noticed
all my daily educational journeys
begin with,
Where do I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

I come from living waters
as profoundly liberating as the air
we would soon learn to breathe.

I am feeling said
for all the opportunities I avoided
to escape all the risks
invited by my shortages of curiosity
and patience,

Sad for settling into my most intimate low commons denominator
lack of commitments
neglecting my healthiest potential connections
with other living waters,
natural spirited inspired inspirational experiences

With those who might have had ears to hear,
surf to ebb and swell emotion’s wane and wax,
with low-bar instructions
to stay out of troubled oceans
seas and seasons,
lakes and swampy ponds,
waiting to be industriously drained,
rivers and endless wondering wandering tributaries
of wet extracted nutrition.

Sacred water murmurs more active hope,
a spray tickling across a lucid lupine stream
speaking mountain voices with and through rounded
risky
stones

Actively seeking sights higher
deeper
wider
narrower
there
here
then flowing on into higher water marks
now threatening to swamp organisms
and organizations along the shore
of change in all relationships of Earth.

I feel said
I have not set my well-watered sights higher
than do no harm
to those living waters
flowing forward into time’s healthiest
transparent
vulnerable,
curious and courageous future sluggish currents of nutrition,
prophets of soon to come malnutrition,
and all climatic hopes and fears
angers and sadness
in-between drowning risks
and strong-flowing currencies of win/win
wellness watering opportunity

To notice
all my daily educational journeys
begin with,
Where did I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

Too Long Past Due

What’s the point of suicide
when I feel already dead inside?

Too long past due
pulling breath’s last plug
last gasp
last primal scream
for and against capital colonizing campaigns
but acted out in dizzying silent mime,
rumored to be a scary thing
this last big surrendering event
before unconsciousness
of changing time
marching inevitably forward
and backward,
out
and back in
until no more back
or in.

But what frightens this fading identity most,
No one will know a difference,
notice I’m different,
least of all
decaying from within
me.

Already unconscious
subconscious,
merely skirting conscious life
precedes flirting with absence of awareness,
burning bridges
pulling life plugs
turning out my lights
already too dark to hear
fear memories
too alarming to feel
images
too disarming to care for power
for light

Too defining
future past experience
enlightening
too long
refining
past due
healing
organic capital investments
ourselves
too long overdue.

Undifference

Indifference, if neutral,
is not hostile or inviting.

Indifference of nature,
like indifferent sages,
need not favor warriors detached from winning health
nor degenerative losing trends against healthy wealth,
cast in our ‘hollow reed’ self-neutral image
of empty potential godliness,
pure omnipresent transparency,
divine polypathic integrity
potential of reversed detachment.

This left-hemisphere indifference
allied with right-integral feeling,
so prominent in Buddhist and Taoist experience,
is only half our YangLeft with YinRight hemispheric history
of self and other full-governing
Our Warrior for ReAttachment
right-hemisphere half slow-grown differently interdependent,

A polyphonic harmonic web
for mutual attraction
of ego/eco-therapeutic re-attraction
to compassion’s historic
muticultural
deep-learning Ways
and Means, universal-Left balancing unitarian-Right harmonic,

Yang remembering to respect WiseElder
bilateral
feeling/memory revolutionary reversions
past intuitions through nurturing interdependent future thoughts
imaged wombs for webs of bicameral balancing
hollow messianic dipolar co-arising choice

To remain fully resilient,
vulnerably listening teachers,
win/win climate committed
conflict inversion resolution resolvers,
therapeutic polycultural mediators,
not so much monocultural molestors
indifferently tolerant of aggressive
degenerative
left-hemisphere dominant wide, but not deep-learning climates
for differentially fragmenting environments
as if intended for nihilistic lose/lose,
by learning to indifferently tolerate
universal silo subclimates of growing despair,
Fiddling while our only and last Bow burns.

To redefine wealth as health
and not indifferently tolerate fake small ego-centrism
as if our larger Earth-centric healthy inviting sanctuary space
were not also our first and last hollow bowing place,
yet uniting and passionately sacred
in this our Great UnRaveling/CoGravitating Time
of climaxing Yang-health
as Yin-wealth opportunity
for polyculturally optimizing systemic
resiliently co-passionate Nature,
Time’s Sage Bilateral Way.

Dancing Across Together

We came across this Earth together
and you’re still here.

We sail through all these sunlight days
and moonless nights
togathered in,
and we hear still.

We swim through all our fears to drown
what fills my rage.

We march through angry Earth apart
and disappear.

Or dance across this Earth together
so we’re still here.

Time Warp

When this quality
of deeply embedding communication
swallows ego’s self-conscious identity

Then I notice time has instantly passed,
a quantitative lack,
absence,
surprising and curious vacuum,

To suddenly discover
babies have continued to be born
and grandparents have continued to die
during this same widely expanding family
of unconsciously passing time.

This quality of ego’s deep communication
escaping
revisiting
that quantity of ecosystemic width

Pleases me
as both spiritual depth
and natural width,
like inhaling timeless immersion
while exhaling global eternity.
