Spirituality ,harmonization , the artistic consiousness Actually during this time of “evolution” within the natural law of the universe, inside the matter, we see human beings in estate of involution. Today is an urgent time to assume the status to grow spiritually and mentally harmonized, we need to create a field of prolific interrelation of positive knowledges, a way to preserve life on earth,in this way project the consciousness outside and stop the new barbarian self ,whose existence becomes an empty for-nothing- looking to be lost in the herd, in the mass, as Heidegger said, the man who lives, goes, laugh, dance, does that everyone else does. Development of life depends of inner impulse and the impact of outside , the inner impulse for this progresive motion is caused by self perfection , is the base of life as the part of the cosmic energy , part of all elements .
