This in the context of tibetan relative reality (awakened)

I got askd this question which I would appreciate an answer or opinions

Ultimate truth seems like it can be reduced to a long chain of cause and effect (through infifinetly complex). Does this leave rooom for the sense of inspiration and mystery we associate with art, music, poetry and other creative stuff?

Yes, of course it does. Buddhism is, at its very core, about truly knowing our human-ness. Awe, wonder, inspiration... these are all a part of our human nature.

Ken McLeod calls enlightenment the "mystery of being".

What we are is an inseparable part of the whole, co-creating this moment. Inspiration and creativity always arise in this moment, in alignment with the conditions that are present now. It IS utterly awe inspiring. emoticon
