    the green language

    "maybe it's all magic... communication... correspondence has a double meaning - writing letters back and forth and having analogy or likeness. the more correspondences i learned, the more connected I "became" and the more i learned to interpret dreams and reality as a dream. the correspondences became a language for my subconscious to speak to my conscious. this is known as the green language, because correspondences and associations grow and multiply and neuronets get bigger and "speak" more "loudly" and "reality" changes accordingly." - Serpentio Aquila, aka Solomon Levi.

    very much a living language of mystics and poets , can roughly be classified as falling under animism...........as it is understood that all of the creatures and objects that inhabit the world are manifestations of the divine and are always communicating with us , if we have the eyes and ears to pick up on the signals

    The Green Language seems very much like having the ability to understand the deeper meaning of symbols and archetypes without too much help from the rational and logical 'mind'.

    An excerpt from The Big Book of Reiki Symbols by Mark Hosak and Walter Lubeck:

    What is a Symbol from the Spiritual Perspective

    A symbol is an experience (for example: opening the heart), which is translated into a very abridged and simplified depiction in an abstract form. It can also be an instruction (for example, our personal divine nature or our own vision for our path in life).

    There are two major groups of symbols. The first includes all of the symbols taken from nature such as: the moon, the sun, the light, the darkness, the stars, the water, the tree, the snake, a rock or mountain, a lake, people, and animals. The second group includes artificially created symbols like: the letters of the alphabet, mandalas, the yin/yang sign, the Reiki symbols and mantras, as well as stories that illustrate a spiritual principle.

    Symbols often serve in the spiritual context as archetypal images of the highest reality, the experiencing of the Divine, that can be attained by expanding our consciousness -- for example, during meditation or visionary experience. They can also serve as mediators of insights, experiences, and contents of sacred knowledge that cannot be depicted and imparted in any other way because it is not possible to find them within everyday experiences in a way that is this comprehensive and interconnective with other life themes.

    A symbol can stimulate the process of understanding both in the creative, intuitive, and/or the analytical-intellectual sense on all levels when we open up to it in a sincere way and with the appropriate expertise. Good literature about the I-Ching and the Tarot, as well as some of the works by Carl Gustav Jung on this topic, can help us to better comprehend the symbols on the different levels of understanding and translate them into practically applicable realizations [. . .]

    Of course, a sacred symbol cannot be explained and understood just by the powers of the logically working mind -- but also not just through intuition and feeling! Both portions of the human spirit must work together harmoniously -- i.e. function holistically -- in order to grasp a spiritual symbol and use it in every possible way. This is why all major spiritual traditions give instructions int he use of sacred symbols from a mentally oriented, rational approach that includes logical reflection, studying the appropriate texts, and informative conversations about a systemized depiction of the Divine Order on the one hand; on the other hand, they adopt an approach that can use inspiration, creativity, intuition, the personal emotional world, and the mystical experience. In the latter case, for example, meditations on symbols are practiced that develop the intuition and promote a stronger ability to resonate with the source of wisdom using the techniques of spiritual energy work. Initiations are frequently also given to create a close relationship between the student and the divine being that is appropriated for him/her (called Yiddam in Esoteric Buddhism) in order to promote his/her understanding and personal development.

    Rational instruction is necessary, for example, to make the students aware of the special meaning of the essentially very ambiguous symbols for the spiritual tradition in which they are involved, as well as its references to their personal experiences, interests and qualities and their momentary learning process. Without the assistance of the cognitive mind, a responsible approach to the symbol in practical applications, but also in teaching the following student generations, is not possible. The mind often lets us easily identify and correct the false interpretations of a symbols that are based on neurotic patterns, fears, and egotistical strivings that have not yet been processed.

    Of course, the mind requires intensive training in order to be a match for these tasks. In addition to the generally applicable rules of clear thinking, students must also learn to integrate the intuitive perception and spiritual inspirations that exceed and compliment their capacities, as well as their true feelings. This makes it possible for the circle to be squared, the extension of practical perception into the divine truth.
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.
