The ability, even in the limitation of language, to describe reality, perceptible and thoughtful, in a logical and consequential way, is a great advantage when it comes to extrining a "linear" and consequential pathway in time space. His use, on the other hand, is of little use in dealing with a "holistic" discourse - as is precisely that of deep ecology and natural (or lay) spirituality.
Certainly, we can get closer to it, through a cautious sort of "words and meanings" of concepts and images. For this reason I find that the message of pictograms - Chinese ideograms is much closer to the figurative semantics of language. There is an attempt to convey the "vision" also to the image, in addition to the thought ....
Remaining with us ... if we analyze the details of the path of life we must necessarily divide them into segments and study them and describe them in their typical functioning, outside the general context, as understood in the specific way the observer ... This is the dictation of logic and this is the operating mode of our language, composed of sounds and allocutions, which of logic is expression. In fact, language is a mathematical gear useful, to some extent, to describe the processes of both sensory perception and emotional "fantasy". But what is so transmitted, unfortunately, lacks the freshness and immediacy of experience, what is rightly called "presence".
In fact, language only draws from memory, can not tell and convey the ineffable moment lived ... as "presence"!
Fortunately, through the analogical capacity of the mind, we are also able to perceive and launch small signals inherent in the "spiritual" sensitivity that does not reside and can not be described with the mechanisms of the dual mind.
The One, or Olis, escapes any logical, empirical description, and if a description is tempted, it is certainly partial and limited to the proper forms of dual language and thought.
To understand a fish you have to be fish, to hear a tree you have to be a tree .. etc. This is true and is also easily acceptable from the human mind. The fact that if you feel a fish is limited to the feeling of the fish, as well as if you feel man is limited to the feeling of man further demonstrates the inability to share the "spiritual concept" among living beings of different species .
Moreover, what is meant with deep ecology and natural spirituality? By stripping himself of the identifying lining in a particular "feel", obliterating his egoic identity, which is nothing more than crystallization of a recognizing himself in thoughts, desires, actions, performed by the "subject-object" acting as an observer ( the specific name-shape of the individual mind), immediately - if freed of identifying assumptions - we are able to fully share the fish or tree experience as our own.
That this ability is not only possible but even feasible is proven by other states that are attained during deep meditation or sometimes by powerful psychic manipulation (trance, delusions, drugs, etc.).
Of course, the sporadic and intermittent experience of non-dual state is just a "taste" of the natural condition in which man and every other being fully shares - and fully manifests - as Everything is One.
The practice of profound self-consciousness, is conductive to the achievement, by means of repeated and constant attention to the perceiving, of that state of unity which completely transcends the individual self and allows the "spiritual" definitive experience of its own in its entirety.
When, with empirical philosophical terms, deep ecologists describe the unity of life, and the interconnection of every aspect of it, in all its relationships, they merely evoke that state of consciousness, that intimate and profound Awareness, that distinguishes itself in every psychic body and every material element (in latent form). And that I like to call "spirit" (intelligence and conscience).
