Mercer understands very well that the essential core of nature mysticism is to enter into a direct communion with the objects in the physical environment. It is very clear that he was able not only to succeed in this kind of communion, but to communicate his experiences with such clarity that all his insights are revelatory. He approaches the natural world from a distinctly western perspective. The writers who have shown him how to find spiritual truth in nature are the great poets and philosophers of the western canon, not the eastern.
