Green Body of Christ

When I was a child
my evangelical family
went to People’s CoOperative Bible Church,
to rapturously pray and praise our privileged preachy partialness,
political and economic and social and environmental,
spiritual against physical apartheid
of superior, divinely-inspired, theology,

Yet, somehow rooted in mission-driven competitions
against the fullness of non-sectarian time
sufficient to bring inclusive nutrients,
liquid and capital-hoarded assets for future rainy
blizzard blustering
dominant days,
at least six per week
severed from Sabbath’s cooperatively wondrous Kingdom
at open-systemic nurturing hand,

Celebrated by declaring our victorious Communion
on God’s glorious not capital-driven work on Sunday
seated in humble chairs of classroom youth,
eventually wooden pews of adult authority
in our small
segregated
AllWhite People’s Sectarian Bible Church.

I recall not even one Sunday School lesson
about what the Holy Historical Body of Christ
might have to do with our potential
Green MultiCulturing Spirit of Healing Christianity,

Nothing about tensions between communion
and monocultural supremacist apartheid,

Nothing about walls between WinWin healthy sacred interdependence
and WinLose stringent secular autonomy of capitalism,

Nothing about Great NonTransitional Divides
between cooperative passions and competitive dispassions,
between Heavenly to-gatherness
and too much Earthly apartness,
between celebration of health
and holocaust of anthro-centric pathology.

Maybe I missed that non-violence teaching Sunday,
But I did not miss experiential theology lessons
of tensions between heterosexual patriarchal monocultural evangelism
and Heaven’s vast radically inclusive promise
of a polycultural
non-apartheid
eternal communioned outcome for Earth-dwellers,
especially for child-like peacemakers,
Holy Spirit inheritors,
regenerators,
co-messiahs within this one secular/sacred Body of Christ.

Active hope for such enchanting holistic bodies
and spirits of vulnerable and transparently loving Messianic Missions,
in the West,
and Bodhisattva PeaceWarriors,
in the East,
felt, even then, as a child,
like emotionally interdependent
enchanting intelligence.

Perhaps,
if we could all arrive in everyday Sabbath Heaven,
in absence of six-day capital over-invested apartheid,
we might discern warmer inviting Lights
are also Truths
and communioned Ways
to sing God’s/Gaia’s EarthBound greening praise

As when we first began
in Planet’s CoOperative Bible Church.

Great HealthCare Expectations

A pandemic Christian evangelical error
disparagingly contrasts gospel privileged scripture,
root of all-powerful faith,
with inferior and erroneous Eastern religious traditions,

Like Buddhism
and Taoist
sanctuaries of well-governed love,
and Hinduism,
and mysticism
and humanism.

Such prejudice assumes each of these spiritual/natural nondual traditions
intends to also be compassionately rooted
in creedal truths,
rather than covenanted sanctuary co-relational experience
advocating polytheistic worship,
dogmatic Word voices,
linguistic historical language choices divinely, not humanely, created,
worshipful sacred nature-creeds
for spiritually healing history.

These are not at all primal Eastern existential philosophical intent,
which is more basically,
fundamentally, if you prefer,
to capture non-sectarian natural
spiritual
dynamic health-wealth principles
rooted in nutritional-nurturing compassion
(divine sanctuary RightBrain experience)
and flowing left as good nutritional
life-fulfilling Golden Covenant,
deduced as ecologically proper theological humane behaviors.

So, spiritual development emerges
analogous with natural lifeline health-optimizing incarnations
of bilateral
secular-sacred
a-theistic-theistic EarthSanctuary governance.

Eastern traditions may be LeftBrain either/or deduced
from multiple sacred polytheistic,
yet uniting,
co-operating integrity Voices;

Powers of divine deities,
nutritional interests,
nurturing Sources
with iconic traits of interdependent species and/or genders
but only if also RightBrain holistic web intuited
as universally a-theistic,
formed by deductive either/or
cause/effect appositional reasoning

Traveling back toward mysterious and curious original integrity Source,
comprehension is Left/Right co-relational,
non-personified Yang/Yin sanctuary space
positively enlightening,
compassionately self/other
ego/eco-covenanting

A-theistic principles of reason
are Eastern WholeSystem conservative logic principles
of non-sectarian ZeroZone integrity,
holistically and holy co-passion,
unitarian liberal and democratically shared sanctuary Light

Not requiring reason to blindly bow
outside our creative diversity of faith
experienced with
or without belief in a universally uniform monotheistic creed
demanding covenants of wealth-bearing fidelity
expressed through unquestioning worship
remotely not communicating with WholeSystem philosophy,
ecological green sanctuary theology of Earth
as prime principle of Light’s creative integrity.

John,
the Disciple closest to the red-blooded heart of the Word
incarnating compassionate breathing in and out Light,
also experienced Jesus of Nazareth
as his Great Sanctuary Mentor
singing in harmonious liberty
of two-way cooperative covenants
lifting every sanctuary Worded voice,
black and brown and white
and green and blue and red rhapsodies
in multiculturing rainbows
of active hope-filling
well-being
Light.

WholeSystem existential natural/spiritual Light
is included in the living water gospels of co-redemption,
for those with covenanting eyes
to sanctuary see
who I integrally AM
is who WE healthy BECOME.

To paraphrase the Dalai Lama,
Compassionate Philosophy lies beyond sectarian Religion:
Health Sanctuary for a WholeSystemic World.

Growing Webs, Not Walls

As democratic minds continue to work LeftBrain Yang-hard and strong,
yet resiliently paced,
and RightBrain Yin-smart,
flowing smooth,
resonantly graced,

Earth grows deeper and wider polypathic outcomes
restoring peace
by non-violently responding to past climate injustices,

Inviting patient good humor
despite wounded free-loaders stingy past
without sufficient faith in positive therapeutic investment.

Not begrudged investment in silent bad faith,
expecting only more negative Win/Lose compromises,
eventually devolving into economic
and ecological gridlock losses,
total eco- and ego-systemic stuckness,
personally and politically disempowered,
disengaged,
failing to thrive.

Deterring aggression is unlikely
to those investing in and with swords,
automated rifle associations,
marketing sales of fear-mongering weapons
and walls
and martial laws.

Deterring violent aggression is more likely
to those investing in and with redemptive WinWin compassion,
cooperative global health associations,
advocating and mentoring gospel communion experiences,
WinWin wealth of grace,
love,
compassion,
trust
as LeftBrain defined,
RightBrain refined,
by not LoseLose absence of health,
trust,
compassion,
grace under Win/Lose fire
of competitive Business As Capital Infested,
over-invested,
under-arrested
by webs of resilient cooperative ownership
management
governance
responsibility
healthy wealth accountability,
historical recountability

AllSouls CoOperative Residence

I wish to fully live
then richly die
non-violently communing with AllSouls
in cooperative team resonance,
resilient restoring justice green residence
eco-governing NewLondon’s energy democracy,
WinWin co-arising loss
of LoseLose Ego PrisoNest,
plutocratic capital-infested monotheism

I hope we wish to cooperatively network gratitude
for opportunities to restore peacefully robust forests
and resonant oceans
reweaving health optimizing Truth
and BeautyWealth enculturation,
multi-transparent
and accessibly co-passioned
as ultra-violet moon light,
RealTime or imagined.

I would avoid consequences for RightWing capitalist BusinessAsUsual
LeftBrain dominant weekday time
is a pre-millennial devolutionary dance
With elevated RightBrain intuitive prominence
of GoldenRule ecological arts
and theological sciences

And GoldenRatio psychological iconic crafts
Tipping wu-wei points toward ecopolitical health
rather than climatic consequences of sinful monoculturing hubris
of not-so-divine anti-sociological anthro-centrism
recreating this wearing out spacetime zero-zone universe
Capital over-invested in paranoid pathologies

My communion rituals imagine
sacred AllSouls CoOperative Residences
we already sanctuary share
in community rooms and land trust networks
for dancing and singing ecotherapies
story-telling and painting and writing,
planting and harvesting active communion
in outdoor sacred spaces,
AtlanticOcean boundary places,
Earth wild transition phases,

NewEngland revolutionary non-violent traces
rooted in nature/spirit eco-theology
co-arising healthy
cooperative
universal
ego-nurturing residents
reweaving All PolyCultural Souls

Communing climate bereavement choirs
composed of retired
and disabled adults
with children, as time and space allow

Schooling outdoor green homes
taught with challenged kids
and the young of too many species

Gathering all ages in our EcoSchool Cafe
for jazz and comedy improv
live and also podcast

For weekend disability day and night care giving
and receiving communion

Regardless of polypathic disability
cooperative location for residential sanctuary care
inside as outside,
universally before and integrally after
each sacred HereNow momentary communion
delivered and received.

Notes from a Unitarian Child

Once upon a time,
an eight year old
Black and Green and Brown and Red and Blue Lives Matter
ultra-nonviolent kid
wrote an ultra-violet note to him/herself
about stuff s/he needed to full-rainbow recall
if and when s/he ever became
a worn out
stressed out
depressed
workaholic
self-defeated parent:

I wish my dad
and my mom,
like Mother Earth
and GrandMother Moon,
had spent more story time
talking about gravity
and enlightenment tales
and depression fables
and repression epics
and suppression mysteries
of basic fairy flying
like what goes fluttering up
must come mortally down
what goes forward in time
must have come from backward in mythic imagination.

I wish my spiritual mom and natural dad
had thought out loud
more about pictures reducing four-directional wilderness imaginations
as the reverse
of time-organic memories
seducing and securing Earth’s original health intentions.

I hope my future teacher vocation
invests more class time
explaining LeftBrain’s obsession
with starting at the elite top of any logic tree,
then going down the systemic stem and opening/closing branches
to define and redefine Top’s administrative purposes
and subTop uber-branches
over their essentially cooperative,
more than competing, parts,
and resiliently reiterative parts parts,

While spending more future outdoor class time
exercising intuition emerging reverse-time images with organic feelings
starting in ancient WiseElder DNA democratic universal atomic memory
to travel back up a reverse historical health/wealth hierarchy
into this ego-embodied integrity day

More outside classrooms
for nurturing cooperatively-held co-relationships
to be sure all our interdependent parts and climate feelings
throughout our neural network biosystems
are regeneratively communicating
more then degenerating more pathological dissonance,
and unconscious disenchantment with competing ego-healers,
and depression,
and repression,
and suppression of intuitive RightBrain ecological/theological prime relational,
natural/spiritual
patriarchal/matriarchal co-intelligence.

I hope my fellow story-tellers
will remember to talk and listen to kids,
to sing and dance as kids,
to design and develop with hurt kids,
to lead and follow with suffering at-risk kids
will teach and study
breathing in Yang’s patriarchal deductions
to breathe out Yin’s uniting intuitive primal relationships
between what LeftBrain sees too often
as Either/Or oppositional Truths
as RightBrain feels not enough Both/And appositional Trust
that dawn will continue to follow spectral dusk
has followed dusty dawn of sacred ZeroZone enlightenment

As light follows darkness within egos
and darkness without ecologically conscious
theological experience
of uniting love
as grace
and healthy karma

As uracil’s wisdom loyally follows cytosine’s flow
co-arises Yang’s universal monotheistic
RightWing patriarchy has forgotten
LeftWing matriarchal cooperatively-owned prehistory
of unitarian polycultural cytosine evolutions,
birthing appositional twins
Adenine and Guanine,
Zeus and Diana,
Yang and Yin,
testosterone and estrogen…

I long to remember
co-arising polypathic opportunities
for green peace
restoring Yang/Yin egocenters
rebuilding and feeding and watering
matriarchal ecopolitical justice
growing Earth’s healthiest wealth of DNA
sacred story-shaping ecology strings of co-regenerate Tao.

As a WiseElder,
the formerly eight year old Unitarian added,
at long last,

I hope I can retain hope for everyone,
for all future generations,
all species of loving life,
all incorporated constitutions of and for democratic happiness and welfare,
all healthy ecopolitical love climates
and theological grace frames
and ecological karma stories
for cooperatively owning extended family international integrity
within every polynomial x/y-squared egosystem,
every EarthTribe u/c-squared epic string of co-regenerating Time,
every HereNow Yang/Yin-squared polypathic moment
ever after

ZeroZone Universal ReGenesis
begat an eight year old unitarian child
Black and Brown and Green and Red and Blue
polypathic multiculturing lives
for healthier hoping ultra-nonviolent futures.

Wholes and PlayNice Parts

What is the big deal difference
between universal wholeness
and interdependent HereNow fragmentation?

How are they combined
to make one Left/Right
Ego/EcoHabitat
bilateral identified whole?

In an organic system,
a mindbody, for illustrative purposes,
perhaps a mature branched-out tree trunk
supported by a subterranean root feeding network,
whether ecosystemic outside
or egosystemic inside,
separating WinWin cooperative organs
leads to expectations of natural/spiritual dividing death,
abandoning each neglected interdependent part
to stand and fall nakedly Lose/Lose alone,

Positive mutual trusted default Virility,
Resilience hijacked by LeftBrain dominant
Either Win Or Lose bipolar
fundamentally autonomous claustrophobic terror,
morbidity.

Development of cooperating
competing labels
for language interdependent with co-relational experience
studies healthy WinWin organic communal communicating ways

Noting LeftBrain developed deductive dominating capacity
to tear away interdependent transubstantiating pieces
of universal creolizing ionizing wholes
While also inductively RightBrain remembering
how we originally worked and played
cooperatively
holistically combined together.

I want to dance time backward
to sing our larger CreationStory multiculturing view.

Wholeness is a polypathic health goal
Interdependence is a polyphonic wealth outcome–
resilience with resonance

An EarthTribe ubiquitously democratic Place
we can sacredly return to
with Left deductive YangEgo
and Right inductive YinEcoRelational
reawakening Prime ZeroZone win/win
within multiculturing health/wealth polypathic us.

WinWin personal and political history
slowly unfolds, refolds, prefolds, folds
before our revolutioning newborn eyes
as we expand our DNA family organic vision
to see matriarchal cooperative universal ZeroZones
Global composed of interdependent health care Local
Wealth previews, reviews, unviews,
double-binding Ego/Eco Creation Stories.

Perhaps the primal difference
between LeftBrain Universalists
and RightBrain Unitarianists
is this difference
Between which one hand is clapping
Which one foot is dancing
Which one integral voice is cooperatively co-passioned
co-arising
SecularHere with Sacred MultiCultural-MultiGenerational Now.

April Love

We began our late winter do-over
with a dirty ceramic bowl
during a too-much snowstorm.

Well, no,
obviously that’s not where this rebirth story begins
but neither is a cream-colored
and clean
bowl
where this story ends.

Anyway,
I look at Matilda’s mac and cheese bowl
from the RaggedyAnn frosty night before
while an early morning April Fool’s snow blanket
arises perfectly
peacefully
majestically
and really too wetly
outside our kitchen windows.

I wash his late night
and lunch-time dishes all the time,
with grateful precision.

Not all the time,
but frequently,
poignantly,
yet he washes his dishes
without touching Matilda’s or mine.

Why would our Cooperative WinWin Gamer
not see how inappropriately WinLose
this is?

Never mind about disrespectful
and possibly selfish.
How does this lack of awareness
betray us,
a more or less functional
resilient cooperative health service unit?

What does this mean
and what is his message
through medium
of round crusty artifact?

I do his dishes
because I”m washing dirty dishes
so I don’t have to look at them,
or smell them,
and so they don’t attract pests
when they are not well rinsed
by RaggedyAnn frosty nubian princesses.

Is this because I am a responsible adult
and a parent of hurt children?
And he is not?

And, if so,
then why would our WinWin Gamer
assume it’s OK
to not act like a responsible young adult
and Cooperative Gaming Sibling?

Facilitator,
both teacher and regenerational student
of healthy resilient life-skills.

Is this message ageist,
and/or anti-parental?
Downsides of Peter Panism,
Eastern Innocence
without strong ecocentrically mature roots,
yet.

So I asked him
about why leaving dirty bowls is OK
for him
regardless of who started it.
And we talked cooperatively WinWin
together
about why they aren’t so great for me,
and possibly us.

That helped us
both to see ourselves
and each other
in some ways
newborn clean bowl differently.

It was about then
this magical early spring snowstorm
faded toward partly sunny
and shoulder-warmer.
