Morning Prayers

EarthMother's unwilling Emissary asked each faith community and patriotic party what they thought and felt about God's preferential option for the poor, despised, criminal, homeless, wounded and powerless women and children, physical disabilities, sick, terrified, rabid with anger and fear, enslaved, addicted, insane. Does this sound like an accurate description of your congregation, your self-empowering party, your communion of saints, your synagogue, your sanctuary-- or are these those who best remain outside your ego-celebrating walls? Why are eco-they not ego-you on Saturday or Sunday morning through midnight? Why are these not Sabbath communion participants holding mutually cooperative and graced space together? What would it take to heal this apartheid Ministerial NonAlliance? Our homeless youth play a young person's avoidance game in which all indoor human voices, especially those of self-anointed authority, ministerial power, principals of punishing study and exclusive EitherIn/OrOut system, administrators of capital egocentric gains, are suspect. These same voices have gathered from sandy shores, river boundary habitats, wilderness downstream spaces, toxic dump places, to lead competing Ministerial Alliances in a guided poly-path toward meditation: Imagine you are an African black and Latin brown and Earth green and Fire red and SunLight yellow and Moon ultra-nonviolet and Water transparent and Air invisible thread, both natural and spiritual, within Earth's multi-regenerational systemic network, a tapestry sunclock-wise woven, sunset before sunrise unwoven north with southern dipolarities rewoven prewoven across a universe of Time. You have regenerative and degenerative experiences thoughts feelings choices absence of choice, external debates and internal discernments, and dialogues in-between your LeftBrain doer thoughts to save us sinners and malformed win/lose supporters and RightBrain becoming together feelings to reweave to cooperatively heal resilient natural Earth systems with resonant spirit-felt EcoOrigins From BlackHole Wombed potential toward wealth rainbow not-not vaporous knots of double-binding resonant climate health, internally right hemispheric as external LeftYang enculturing compassion interweaving threads learning intersectional co-passioning resilience in four prime-revolutionary space-time dimensions. Imagine how much more health we could do and wealthy be together, rather than subclimates and subcultures competitively and resentfully apart.
