Art and Spirituality

« The art is the mirror of soul, the scanner of mind and the identity of the one creating it. »

The truth of art depends on the spiritual sensitivity of a human being. Stronger is his sensitivity, clearer is the truth of art. On the contrary, weaker is the sensitivity, more art becomes like a delirium and takes an artificial shape, which attract society people. The eartdegree of sensitivity depends on the education of the spiritual thought, that is to say an ethic and moral that contain fair and correct sensitivity. » « The art exists in every human being like a deposit, but it's the way to manifest it which differs and depends on our relation with our « beyound ». For instance our relation between music and the musician's hands: more the skill of hands is developped by the knowledge of music, more the music's voice takes a real shape. Otherwise it gives a superficial sound that please those who know nothing about music." The spirituality and art are born with the human being. Through life on earth, they are next to human being in harmony. This means that human being is born with art, he grows up with, he's fed with, but he is unaware. As the spiritual developpement reaches a high level, the art emerges as a kind of ethic and moral. As a consequence, for developping art, a human being needs to develop his original spirituality and put it in practice. The relation between art, spirituality, ethic and moral, looks like a square where each side, if we go all over it, leads automatically to go all over the other side. This is why they are linked like chaines one to the other. This is why art means knowledge of oneself. The knowledge of oneself means wisdom. Wisdom means spiritual understanding. And spirtual understanding leads us to the aim of our essential purpose that is the square. If we go around this square, we arrive to the keystone that is called the knowledge of rights and duty in life. In reality, the application of these rights and duty is a real transition that leads us to our eternal aim. This is the real meaning of life. And here is the relation between art, spirituality, ethic and moral.

About Dr. Franck H. Taghavi

Franck H. Taghavi Docteur en science et maître Reiki (énergie – thérapie) et Art thérapeute Peintre, Calligraphe, Miniaturiste

Franck Hamid Taghavi is born in Iran. From his childhood, he spends long hours in his grand-father's workshop, an undisputed master of persian calligraphy, who teaches him his art with love. Later, his passion for the painting drives him to learn the persian miniature next to two famous artists who already performed with his grand-father, but it will be only at the end of his studies in chemistry that our painter willl show his skills and his paintings inside his university. After many years of silence, but work, it is finally France that will make of him an original artist : he will influence and go into modern art in detail and will have the audacity and this spirit to combine three kinds of art. Currently, Franck Hamid Taghavi, PhD in Engineering chemistry, has made more than a hundred works of art that are a perfect symbiosis of calligraphy and asian miniature's paintings as well as the modern occidental painting. Thus, each canvas is a final bunch of bright and pastel colours in harmony with miniatures creating a universe of light, where we can notice the qualm of his creator, the personnality of the artist.

The being learns things that...

The being learns things that the nature makes available for him without really deeply understanding this knowledge and put it in practice. And if this leads to something positive, we say that it is the beauty, but if this leads to misfortune, we say that it’s ugliness. Whereas whitout knowing the truth of the creation, he has changed the beauty into ugliness.


How to live better?

Question : What should I do at firs place?

Answer : Always Remember your past, take the lessons and maxims without fearing because the knowledge of faults is the first step towards victory.

Question : How to use the present moment usefully ?

Answer : With effort, perseverance, trust and approval in your faith, prepare this present instant for tomorrow and know that the quality of your thoughts creates the quality of your life. And each instant of the present moment must belong to the construction of tomorrow.

Question : How to build our future ?

Answer : Don't be afraid of future because your effort, perseverance and approval have built this future and with no doubt you can see from now on your future.

Question : What should I do with my doubts ?

Answer : Faith with a healthy and educated reason will lead you to the certainty and no doubt will agonize anymore. Doubts are like empty balls that will disappear and in place of it, will come right beliefs even if you dont have the knowledge.

Question : Can I trust I my beliefs?

Answer : When your beliefs will be arriving to certainty according to right principles, don't have doubts anymore, you can.

Question : Is physical beauty important ?

Answer : At first place, it is not important who you are, what is important is that you are usefuful,even if it's just for one person or for one sparkle of the creation. It's then that this internal beauty will replace external beauty. External beauty leads you to rebellion, explosion, while internal beauty leads you to modesty..

Question : What, in me, has to be the most important ?

Answer : Be correct and sincere, with honesty and rightness, live with piety and with contentement. This is a great commandement and this has to be your heart and not your shape.

Question : How to progress in life ?

Answer : The success is in the knowing of know-how, but your progession is the practice of your knowledge and not to reach the result.

Question : How should I learn from others' experiences ?

Answer : Even animals know what they have to eat and how to protect themselves. Life has also keys and experiences, you have to learn these points and you have to learn them from others. The key is the correct knowing of spirituality.

Question : How I have to be ?

Answer : Be aware and awake, and with knowledge and spiritual understanding, lead yourself. With comprehnsion and love open spiritual worlds. Get out your resentment and replace it with forgiveness. With your inner sincerity, lead your life, not with external power.

Question : Do we have the power ?

Answer : If you know who you are, what you have to do, why you came and where you have to go, at this moment, the sky and the earth and everything that is inside belong to you. Try to use it for getting close to the source and not for your own demonstration.

Question : What is the aim ?

Answer : Life is a place for learning et deepening of spiritual knowing for the knowledge.

Question : How the knowing uses spirtituality?

Answer: As long as you don't have the knowledge, you cannot live correctely. And as long as you don't live correctely, you cannot feel spirituality. Spirituality and the Creator of spirituality come from knowledge.

Question : Where can we find a legal pleasure?

Answer: I don't see any pleasure higher than the knowledge. Inside spirituality there are a lot of knowedge. The knowledge of the blessing is higher than the bessing itself. The blessing is the knowledge. If you don't know how to use it, you become ignorant. Higher is the knowing, better is the progress of your reason and the action improves. And more reason and actions are progressing, better is the spiritual understanding, the coomprehension and the perception field extends. It is at this moment, that we go from knowing of self to knowing of God. You become worshipper of God, this is the final aim.


Who is speaking inside of me ?
I keep silent, though this bustling voice is resounding...

Before the Creation, only was the nonexistent. In the beginning, only was the Verb. The Verb was God and God was the Verb itself The Verb took shape and since then remain between us, making the light of God visible to our eyes. The Verb set off and created Love. Love expressed itself and thus the Art was created. From the movement of the Art, forms, features and colors were created. All these fused together, then started to dance while adoring only God The music of my soul came to life from a drop and my face took shape. And then my existence was written. This is how I was born. This is how I found myself, the fruit of Love, the presence of Creator's love and thus I am playing an integral part of the picture realised by the paintor of the eternal who impart me the awareness and the knowledge. Then came the time to know myself and to love. My scientifical studies and the achievement of two PhDs in chemistry and industrial integration psychology did not take myself away from the way to the knowledge of my personal alchemy. Years of effort, love and patience devoted to my spiritual education made me aware of the existence of this Verb. I still keep silent, the Verb that exists inside of me is so powerfull that it comes to life and blows the creation of my paintings. Each of my canvas tells a story of my Love and gratitude for the word Eternal. While creating, the Verb moves and gives rise to features of my paintings that I am observing as you are doing. The Verb living and dancing creates the color but the brush is in my hands. I am submit to that Verb. I am not able to translate and even less to name my canvas but I invite you to discover and to contemplate them to find the Verb.
