Disregarding disbelief, the belief that everything known came out of the word, may be considered. While everything encompasses various elements of Nature and spirituality, sometimes the notion of spirituality is confused, as it may take on several different meanings such as psychological health. The notion of the spiritual life entails many ambiguities. Although it is possible to distinguish spirituality from conventional religions or religious institutions, it cannot be isolated from the religious, since spirituality rises above all religions. A similar confusion manifests in the concepts of Nature and the environment. This chapter attempts to clarify the notion of “Nature,” what is meant by environmental rhetoric, how these are related to the commonness of the Sacred, and how these have to be accepted.

Keywords:   belief, Nature, spirituality, Sacred, environmental rhetoric, acceptance
