How many times in our lives we got chills when viewing a great artwork, when listening to a beautiful piece of music, when getting absorbed by the lines of a poem or by watching a movie?
Art expressions are able to convey emotions and to make us feel emotionally involved, they are able to spread waves of pleasure through our body and to make us feel as part of what we are listening, reading, watching or looking at. The same feelings may generate when, with a free and clear mind, we get absorbed by an amazing sunset or when we look at a tree, at a beautiful flower or any other element of nature.
Why this happens? Many scientific studies tried to give plausible and empirical explanations to this phenomena. But how can scientific studies, conducted by humans with their limits, be without limits and explain everything?
There is a common knowledge, a perfect knowledge from which we may draw only with a free mind, a Knowledge that is silence and life, that gives birth to everything and that lives within each one of us, waiting to be able to show up. A Knowledge that is so complete, pure and out of human reach, that we can only catch a glimpse of it through the gifts we have, which, if cultivated, may be a little spark of witness of the Greatest Artist.
