When we watch masters performing at peek flow, we transcend with them.
We experience with them a little bit of the mystery of mastery.
It leaves us in awe. It takes our breath away. It makes time stops.
Today I watched the mystery of mastery at work: I saw a performance of Cirque De Soleil.
I smiled and laughed at the universal physical comedy, I shrieked and covered my eyes when the master gymnasts flew in the air, I made audible sounds of 'oh' and 'oohh' as performers blew my mind with the commend of their bodies, ease of their performance and incredible flexibility and strength.
In certain moments, I left my body watching these masters leave theirs. I was with them for those single moments. I forgot all notion of identity and self and I was one with them.
THAT is the power of artistry, and the mystery of mastery:
It connects us. It connects us. It connects us.
And for single moments... we are all masters.
