Are you suggesting that concepts are not very important? If so how else would you be able to express what it is that you are trying to relate at this moment without them?
What I am saying is that concepts are way too important and that a carpenter would never try to convince you or anybody else that he IS
his hammer, the saw, or the other tools he uses. He is very clear that he is not his tools.
However, you and the rest of humanity don't see animal rationale
, human being, mind, consciousness, evolution, simple animal, subject/object, man, woman, child, Mexican, White, Black, Russian, Jew, American, Israeli, Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Lutheran, etc. as tools to be used.
You live your life as if you ARE

What I'm saying is that the 'tools' you use to represent 'Be'-ing don't do justice to the phenomenon that you are. You wouldn't use a carpenter's tools to bake bread and you wouldn't use a baker's tools to tune a car.
The concepts we use to represent 'Be'-ing are the wrong tools to produce the result we are attempting to produce. Since the proper tools haven't been provided, we will have to invent them.
The only way I have found to invent those tools is to stop using the tools we have been provided by disentangling your 'self' from the labyrinth of definitions, concepts, and theories provided to you by the 'they' and the 'world'. As you 'deconstruct' those definitions, concepts, and theories you will find that 'you' will show up in their place and you will have the tools you need.
However, be forewarned. Just because you have the tools doesn't mean that the rest of the people who are entangled in the definitions, concepts, and theories will have any idea of what you are talking about.
If you keep washing your food in the stream before you eat it eventually the rest of the monkeys will catch on.
