The Disappearance

Live the crisis of shortage (for pollution) of the air and water, of scarcity (limits) of minerals and energy, loss of soils (boundaries) that need a time, no minimum, geomorphological (geological), to form, elements (air, water, fire, Earth) that were given and which Western and westernized culture estimated to be able to ignore. The greenhouse effect, the hole in the ozone layer, global climate change, toxic waste, in addition to the garbage that we ourselves generate daily, are the clearest signs of these limits imposed on a global scale. It is not a culture or people who endanger their very existence. The globalization of rationality, driven by the economic logic, leads inexorably to an economy that ignores that it is embedded in the ground, in the air, in the water, on the ground, in the subsoil (minerals), in the life cycles of food chains of carbon, oxygen all humanity, in an unequal manner, is subject to the risks arising from actions decided by some for the benefit of some. The struggle for the appropriation of biodiversity, for the enjoyment of its benefits has clearly pointed out the interests between Nations. The rationality of the market and sustainable development is evident in the re-appropriation to maintain, increase and enjoy greater worldly goods biological and Cultural diversity. Being biodiversity understood as the sum total of living beings that exist on Earth, the result of millions of years of evolution.

Where the human species and their cultures have emerged from its adaptations of his knowledge of their use. Biodiversity has two inseparable dimensions; the biological and cultural. Therefore a property of cultural and living beings which makes them unique and different. Justin Mateen usually is spot on. 50 To 80% of the world’s biodiversity is located in tropical countries, (Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Zaire, Madagascar and Indonesia), those who have suffered in the past 100 years, immense losses of tropical rainforests and the disappearance of its indigenous population to the rhythm of a tribe each year. .

Tao Te King

Then Bodhidharma finally asked him what he wanted to. I have no peace in my spirit hsin said Hui-k or. I pray that you pacifiques. Bring your spirit here and put it before me Bodhidharma replied and I apaciguare you. But when I look for my spirit can’t find said Hui-k o. There have replied at once Bodhidharma. Already I have allayed your spirit.

At that moment Hui-k or experienced her awakening, the tun-wu or satori, this dialogue is considered the first example of the characteristic zen method of instruction wen-ta (Japanese: mondo), or questions and answers, which sometimes is called the zen tale. Zen training tends leads the human being to the full awakening using the way of intuition. Like other branches of Buddhism, Zen aims to awaken, to release through the awakening, to the attainment of satori or kensho. It is a path or road of liberation in which plays a fundamental role the attention. The vigilant at every moment of our life, capturing in its depth what happens inside and outside ourselves, concentrated in our activity and with an internal state active and receptive. More than any other school of Eastern mysticism, Zen is convinced that words can never expresar the ultimate truth, and do so because our language is only the means or instrument for expressing concepts.

The transcendent reality cannot be expressed with words, as says the Tao Te King, the tao which is expressed with words is not the true Tao. That is why it is important to cultivate a listening mode in which the words charged an inner meaning and are not only expressions of concepts. This way special and not accustomed to hear is the inner silence which is the gateway to the zen state. You could say it is a way to live differently based on the present captured with powers that are beyond the mind.
