Mind and spirit” Philosophy of the feelings

Desert, place of the spirit

The desert, meant like earth vergine, is the place of exploration of the own interiorità, source of the wisdom. Of it it speaks Eugen Drewermann, catholic clergyman, theologian and psicoterapeuta, contested from the Church for its positions.

We read without indugio the step of Drewermann, in order to make, then, some reflections:

“He is them, in means to the difficulties and the renunciation, than every water drop, every moment of life becomes precious beyond measure. The desert same standard to appreciate of new the value of the things [...], so that the energy of desire awakenings and falls apart the soffocante covering that wraps the heart.
Because the aim that it gives meant to the life is not never one what, but the sense that connects the invisibile things - something, that it is possible to see single with the eyes of the heart ".

In the age of the city-workshops, all strepitio, efficiency, exasperated dynamism, accrediting languages, existential conformismi, it is indeed necessary to recall the wisdom of the desert, sour place, inospita them, enclosed in the fixity of its horizon, expanded in its threatening spaces, but also earth vergine, metaphor alive of that part of our spirit not contaminated from the serializzanti grammars of the city-workshops, from “is said, made…”.

To inhabit the desert means, then, to take dismissal also only for short moments from the world, in order to make the accounts with same we, to listen to the wisdom of the heart, riscoprire the essential thing, to riarticolare a speech of able sense of giving voice to our more authentic feelings.

Insomma, is necessary to desertificare our spirit in order riattivar of the inner eyes, single the able ones to pick the invisibile, the original Shape of the things, the bottom meant one of which they are woven.

This is the wisdom of the desert, where the term wisdom sends back to the ability “to weigh” ours to be to the world, to experience fecund inner ways, to sound the depths of the spirit in order to reach existential energies alternatives to those of the technological efficientismo and the produttivismo.

The experience of the desert does not go gelosamente but conserved for himself, but it goes communicated to the others, in such way that the deserts enter in the cities and life to an adult, able humanity can be given to conjugate the necessity of the productive rhythms with the force of the devising thought and the genuine language of the feelings.
