Mixing Politics and Religion

My grandfather
seemed wise with years
walking his rural spiritual path
in a relentlessly white
Christian dualistic church
dividing sinful nature
from sacred spirit.

He counseled:
Do not mix
religion and politics.

I wonder
how he would feel
about this mix
of sacred and profane
if he were to meet
my out lesbian activist
senior UU minister.

Clearly
we have mixed up
our religious community
within our local political culture

When we called
this clergy person
we did not ask her
to leave her politics
at any sacred
and ordained door.

On the contrary
we recognize
and celebrate
that she
and we
are politically empowered
and disempowered identities
with naturally spiritual experiences,
family traditions
and theological agendas.

I wonder
if my grandfather would realize:
If calling an out
feminist lesbian
as our minister
mixes religion
and politics,
against his well-meant advice

So too:
Calling a straight
white male
as his first
and second
and third
and fourth
and fifth
and sixth…
pastor
was also mixing politics
and religion
and sexuality

Also against his own patriarchal
not feminist,
monotheistic
not polytheistic,
monoculturing
not polyculturally resilient
healthy advice

Especially for a family farmer
valuing crop
and income diversity
who started out
as an adolescent
relying on organic horsepower,
spirited stallions
and mares
capable of peak experiences
and making ponies
and fertilizing fields
with sacred regenerative practices
for exercising political agency

Giving birth
to future
naturally religious
politically empowered
and disempowered
gender role identified bodies

Yang strong
and Yintegral flowing
wu-wei admixtures of secular politics
and sacred enculturing religious
integrity

Monotheistic
and polytheistic
and panentheistic
and atheistic experiences
cooperatively inclusive

Resiliently polycultural
political and sexual
dynamic communicators
within enlightened tribes
and across empowering species.

Peak EarthWise Regard

Elder indigenous RightBrain
peak win/win resonant experience
is not ego-centric
because interdependent organic systems
are not monopolized by anthropocentric
LeftBrain monotheistic dominance.

RightBrain prominent ecstasy
fulfills win/win co-invested play
of ecologically interdependent
sacred cooperative polycultural wu-wei
democratic energy neuro-systems
secular health Left
embracing sacred wealth integrity
reforming bicameral elder Right
polytheistic polyvagal
ancient communication networks

Commonly held by organic life and death
multi-regenerational
EarthTribal panentheistic inside/outside views

Ego-inside spiritually introverted subjects
also Eco-Other natural co-empathic objects

Objectives
of Right/Left bicameral
peak win/win experiences
not autonomously egocentric
because EarthTribal identities
are not peculiarly anthropocentric
as is monotheistic
monopolistic
monoculturing win/lose LeftBrain dominance

Worshiping anthro-exceptional world views
like Straight White Corporate AlphaMale
historical privilege
as compared to cooperative
co-empathic
co-invested

Engaging peak natural/spiritual
nondualistic grace
of bicamerally balanced ecofeminist
vocations and vacations

Advocating total co-investment
in nonviolent communication
for restoring peak experiences
of EarthPeace, empowered right
is also EarthTribal Justice, enlightened left.

Grave Feelings

I rediscover organic errors
hidden in co-gravitating
love language.

Gravity is easily noticed
as Apple falling toward Earth;
less visibly conscienced,
experientially remembered,
as co-gravitational
co-relational intent

As Apple’s ego-gravity core
falls drawn toward sacred Earth’s
Mothering womb
smothering tomb
once more
returning toward deeply divine
anthrosupremely verbal
overpowering EarthTribe core gravitas soul
slowly soaring
back down and out
into globally nutritional
seasonally appropriate
co-invested ecological
co-operative 7-regeneration
co-investment

From which this same sacred
co-gravitating Apple
dialectically
binomially
bilaterally
double-binary
co-empathically
historically
polyculturally potentiated

Organic life loves
win/win love
is not lose/lose
not not hate

Against continuously emerging
win/lose further obvious irresolutions

Like why we know Yang 1 Positive
dipolar co-gravitates
with Yintegral 0 Negative

Yet does not oppositionally
defiantly ignore
positive polynomial language

Co-gravitating equitably Yang 1 Positive
balanced with not not Yintegral 0-squared

P=NP appositional
but not oppositional,
at least and at best,
not yet
[N] enthymematic multicultural
Both/And’s “not yet”

Not cogravitating dissonance disorder
climate stress
community exceptionalism distress
childhood win/lose stressors
wounds

chronic anxiety

Not not P
unveils integrity’s potential
both/and right hemisphere
secular/sacred EarthMother
indigenous nondualistic wisdom
of integrity’s co-passioning
universal potential passion

When P also embraces
Left Hemisphere’s Patriarchal Capital
co-gravitating memories
of mountainously enlightening SunGod
erupting Win/Win
polynomially holistic Communion
Creolization
TranSubstantiation

Deeply empowering Right Hemisphere’s

EarthTribal co-gravitating

Gravitates toward gravitas
wellness-seasoned wealth

Polypathic Yang 1+
redefines, refines
(N)P not-0 exponential
indigenously wise GoldenRule
co-relational win/win
is not win/lose,
Both/And dipolar co-gravitation
is more than Either 1 Or 0 bipolar
intelligence

Co-gravitating win/win co-operative
Humane-Infant/Sacred-EarthMother

Original CoGravitational Win/Win Attachment
is not Original Lose/Lose Detachment Sin

Against Ego/Earth double-gravitating
decontextualized absence
of resilient co-gravitas peak experiences
with bicameral Yang/Yintelligence

Rediscovering LeftBrain dominant
Either/Or reductive Win/Lose errors
hidden in co-gravitating

language of dipolar co-arising

Briding Her Groom

We witnessed a wedding
of Groomed BridePassion,
Yanged Yintegrity

Groomed co-enlightened strengths
in cooperative economic space
with Bridal co-empowering flow
through sacred inter-generational time

Throughout each organically wedded network
explodes summer’s green emphatic climax,
ripe
hot
wet triumphal passions

Yet also witnessing Earth’s impending
imploding winter dormancies,
EarthMother’s cold
barren
dystopian Anthropocene.

We witness

Not this day,
but before
and after,
We wait
in darkening valleys of cooperative silence,
surrounded in this sacred place
by green-blue mountains
screaming grooms embriding restless slumber
to give a new rebirth
of organically permaculturing ecstasy
passion
co-passion
co-intelligent compassion

All this green
and transubstantiating sky-blue ecstasy
of deeply poetic license,
romantic licentiousness,
exotic pansexual deliciousness

Not groomed as a secondary backdrop
for this late summer’s labored wedding
of co-invested GroomNature
and BrideSpirit

Here and Now
a primal foreground
conjoining Earth’s Wholy Open
green systemic communion

Bride-groom
valley-mountain
yin-yang
wu-wei balance
after foreground
reverse foretelling
paradox fortuning
fortressing this reconceiving
of EarthTribe’s wedded passions

Politically powerful
economically nutritional
socially nurturing ecological
transensory bicameral
brided-groom intelligence

About what co-passions remain sacredly possible

Including, of course,
green cooperative healthy values,
but also finding win/win opportunities
in diseased and wounded disvalues
as uneased Yang grooms,
midst this trembling mountainous Anthropocene,
rewed Yintegral brides

Timeless
indigenous
ecofeminist wisdom
surrounded by capitalized health risks
yet also restorative justice opportunities
green as Vermont’s swelling
summer climax of fertile blessings
grace
doing Us cooperatively
our AnthropoScenic selves

Witnessing this co-passion play,
our naturally enspirited
EarthTribal Matrimony.

Where Lives HAPPeaceness?

Where lives aliveness,

Despite trauma

Not much about woke-up

with

fully wholesum

and deep intuitive integrity,

Potential for win/win nature-spirited compassion,
love for felt trusted Truth,

Inside as outside
inhaled
as neighboring green-leaved
and alively needled trees
exhale empowering,

Co-operative Way

co-passionate wellbeing Life

Read analogically

Bottom right felt Life on through

Integrity of Forests

Students enjoy a question
often wisely asked
especially of teachers
parents
and preachers
who seem not too often recall
curious younger learners,
deep listeners

If I must choose
which to trust,
your words without compliant
healthy resilient action,
OR your less mindful actions
not supported by your invocations
for divinely healing reactions,

Like telling your kids not to smoke
in-between stinky toxic puffs,

Which will have primary influence,
and which a wider and less deep
secondary smoke screen
of ambivalence
where we had hoped for integrity?

I question how to safely and astutely trust
a source of incompatible verbose
and poignant inaudible messages
brought by legs with feet,
arms with hands,
minds with hearts,
rooted nutritional systems
with sensory complex faces.

What primal communications
are most likely
to miss communion’s full
of grace potential?

Our more obvious EarthTribal point,
we deeply trust only Earth’s naturally
spirited resources,
healing advocates,
ecological green nurturing leaders,
indigenous species of integrity

Like trees
bushes
plants,
blessing soil
water
breezes in integral, sacred forests,
beautiful and true
trusted green
breeze in
and not relentlessly blue
breath out

Where healthy deeds
and safely consilient
brilliant
refulgent
resilient communications
are integral,
confluent,
in sync with humane
and divine local
through global
green EarthWealth care

For upright inaudible meaning
with downleft poetic purpose.

What We Mean ReConnected

Imagination
and timeless Muse memory
wears Her integral capacity
to naturally craft a re-ligious spirit
out of any transcendent
transparent
transregenerational relationship,

Within any AnthropoCentric
NonViolent Communioning Network.

And, a positively correlating observation,
proposition,
perhaps both decent and indecent,
sacred and secular,
sensory and sexual,

We can,
and have,
and will continue to
design gods and goddesses
out of any significant
deep and widely polycultural communing
EarthTribe Ancestor,
both enlightening
from above
and without,
and empowering
from below
and within;

Monotheistically transcendent,
and/or panentheistically communing,
imminent co-empathic trans-immanence.

Integrity’s Great ReTurning potential
transubstantiating potency,

Omnipotence individualized
in pride
courage
curiosity
commitment
to be freely and fruitfully known
as an Earth Worshipper
of Her omniscient natural Truths
and omnipresent spiritual Beauty.

But, I would be ticked in Hell
if anyone ever thought of,
and felt from, me
an individualistic Nation Patriot,
Patrician,
same ol’ patristic sad song
and delusional dance

A WELLNESS CAPITALIZED EmpireBuilding Worshipper
of colonizing
competitive
Win/Lose ZeroSum monotheistic
monoculturalism,

Greatly divisive
degeneratively intending
to not creolize within sacred Earth communion,
but to take over secularized resources
for ecopolitical consumption
unto transcendently supreme
StraightWhitePatriarchal AnthrObesity.

An ecologically resilient
and theologically resonant
Patriotic SpiritNature,
like EcoFeminist ReLigioning Integrity,
is potentially healthiest
wealthiest
and wisest

When direct prayers for health,
and wealth petitions to MotherEarth
are for nothing less
than our most regenerative
polyculturing
enlightening and empowering
Truth and Beauty
Heaven and Earth
Spirit and Nature
CoPassionate BiCameral Communion.
