Sighed Earth's River

I heard a new term today, slow sighed Earth's River, "spiritual intelligence." I have become flowingly familiar with cognitive intelligence, before that emotional intelligence, before that contextual intelligence, similar to climate intelligence throughout life's tributaries, branches and root well-springs. My waters do not claim these are strengths; more familiar as effluent opportunities for further flowing affluent redevelopment. But, just as I am not entirely clear where emotional awareness ends and environmental noticing begins, so too, where might Earth's physical context end and sacred Spirit's awareness transcend signs seen, sighs slowly heard? I wonder, rooted in my ego-centering experience, if feelings flow toward ego inside wet identity as contextual warm intelligence ebbs from eco-outside co-investment; If eco-political context, empowering and disempowering natural flowing energies, welcomes, invites, embraces, baptizes with awe and wonder spiritual intelligence of universal individuation, river-bedded identity co-arising heart-felt rhythms, breath surfing choices up and non-chosen down, smiles clown while frowns heavily crown Polypathic signing language, polyphonic rhythm, polyculture flowing systems, Analogical EarthNature unveiling metaphoric Spirits, Secular ecological purpose compelling sacred theological meaning Signing reasons, sighing seasons pushing up and flowing down.
