Default Language and Spirituality

Jacqueline,

Your post and the poetic language you use reminds me of the work of Eugene Taylor. He makes a pertinent comment about language when expressing our spiritual experience...


“It is not generally the language of everyday discourse because it is so personal. It is not the kind of language that drives science or business, and it not the normally the speech we hear when talking to our neighbours, although it sometimes appears in the language of relationships, such as between intimate friends, or in the expression of romantic feelings. It is, rather, a deeply interior language.”
