"I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name"
Dr. Michael J. Cohen writes in Reconnecting With Nature, p.215:
The "Law of the Nameless" incorporates and respects the wholeness of the nameless and every aspect of billions of years of our creative, evolving life process and spirit, which we and Earth manifest.
Uniquely, the Law of the Nameless holds true for all members of the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms. It states that at any given moment:
- Everything desires to be.
- Natural attractions interconnect everything.
- Natural attraction relationships build stability.
You may not realize until you try this activity how strongly we are attached to observing the world around us through the filter of its name. Our technology keeps us uber focused on words, often side-stepping direct sensory experience. I have made a living for almost 25 years by capturing people's words and proofreading them. Words constantly swim in my mind.
What intense relief to be free of words and glean the true nature of things! Try it. You might experience your world an entirely new way.
