Oriental Philosophy

Written by: Professor Abdolreza Shahrabi Farahani and Professor Seyed Vahab Mirsalehi, The examination of disagreements between Western Philosophy and Oriental Sciences and Philosophy

Oriental Sciences and Philosophy encompass many philosophical and scientific schools and approaches that have emerged in various regions of Asia and the Middle East. These schools include Chinese, Indian, Iranian, and Japanese philosophy. Oriental Philosophy and science focus on nature and the natural world, reflecting on how the world and nature work.

Many of these philosophies and sciences believe that the world can only be understood directly and solely through experience and observation, and that science and philosophy should be based on these experiences and observations. One of the most important philosophical and scientific schools of the East is Chinese philosophy, which is known as one of the oldest and most influential philosophical schools of the East.

Chinese philosophy focuses on contemplation of the foundations and bases of existence and nature, and seeks to find a complete and comprehensive philosophical system to explain and interpret the world and reality. This school includes concepts such as the theories of yin and yang, human nature, ethics, and political philosophy.

Indian philosophy is another philosophical and scientific school of the East that has emerged based on Hinduism and Buddhism. This philosophy seeks to answer questions such as the existence, stability and change in the world and nature, and ways to solve human problems and suffering.

Iranian philosophy is also one of the philosophical and scientific schools of the East that has emerged based on Zoroastrian, Mazdak, and Sufi traditions. This philosophy focuses on concepts such as the unity of existence, creation, anthropology, ethics, and political philosophy.

Japanese philosophy is another philosophical and scientific school of the East that has emerged based on Shinto and Buddhism traditions. This philosophy seeks to answer questions such as the existence, stability and change in the world and nature, and ways to solve human problems and suffering. Oriental and Western philosophy have many differences, which are due to different cultural, historical, and religious foundations on which each of these philosophies is based. Generally speaking, Western philosophy is more focused on justifying and interpreting the physical world and the visible universe, while Oriental Philosophy is more focused on justifying and interpreting the inner and spiritual world. For example, in Western philosophy, concepts such as logic, reason, knowledge and truth are more focused on analyzing and interpreting the visible world, while in Oriental Philosophy, concepts such as spirituality, contemplation, inner experience, philosophical reflections, and religious teachings are more focused on justifying and interpreting the inner and spiritual world. Furthermore, Oriental Philosophy is more based on personal experience and observation, as well as individual reflections, while Western philosophy is more based on logic, argumentation, and reasoning.

In addition, Oriental Philosophy tends to emphasize balance, harmony, and unity between the spiritual world and the physical world, while Western philosophy tends to emphasize differentiation and differences between different beings and concepts. Overall, the differences between Eastern and Western philosophy show that each of these philosophies seeks to justify and interpret a different world and has emerged as a response to various challenges and questions about reality and nature.

Indeed, Oriental and Western philosophy differ significantly in ethical and philosophical issues. In this regard, the differences between these two philosophies are quite noticeable. One of the prominent differences in Oriental and Western ethical philosophy is that Oriental Philosophy emphasizes more on conscience and indigenous ethics, while Western philosophy is more focused on justifying ethics based on logical reasoning and general principles.

For example, in Oriental Philosophy, ethics is based on concepts such as karma, dharma, essence, shanti, and inner contemplation, while in Western philosophy, ethics is more based on concepts such as justice, benevolence, rights, and ethical education. Furthermore, Oriental Philosophy tends to emphasize unity and coordination between the spiritual world and the physical world, while Western philosophy tends to emphasize differentiation and differences between different beings and concepts.

For example, in Oriental Philosophy, ethics and political philosophy are based on the unity of the world and the relationship between humans and the natural world, while in Western philosophy, ethics and political philosophy are more based on the differences and distinctions between individuals and different societies. Oriental Philosophy tends to focus more on inner contemplation, philosophical reflections, and religious teachings, while Western philosophy tends to focus more on logic, argumentation, and reasoning. Overall, the differences between Oriental and Western philosophy in ethical and philosophical issues demonstrate that each of these philosophies seeks to justify and interpret a different world and has emerged as a response to various challenges and questions about reality and nature.

Indeed, the differences between Oriental and Western philosophy in ethical and philosophical issues demonstrate that each of these philosophies seeks to justify and interpret a different world and has emerged as a response to various challenges and questions about reality and nature. Additionally, the concept of time and space is also approached differently in Oriental and Western philosophy. In Western philosophy, time and space are considered as independent and absolute concepts. In other words, time and space exist abstractly and independently of what happens in them. In this philosophy, time is considered as the continuity of events on a timeline, and space is considered as a physical dimension where physical entities exist.

In Oriental Philosophy, such as in Buddhist philosophy, time and space are considered as relative and dependent on individual existence and experience. In other words, time and space are considered as relative and variable concepts that are shaped by individual experience and awareness. For example, in Oriental Philosophy, time is considered as a mental and experiential continuity that is perceived by the individual, and space is considered as a personal experience that affects the formation of physical entities.

The differences between Oriental and Western philosophy in the concept of time and space demonstrate that each of these philosophies seeks to justify and interpret a different world and has emerged as a response to various challenges and questions about reality and nature. Indeed, Oriental and Western philosophy are seeking to justify and interpret different worlds based on their unique cultural, historical, religious, and philosophical foundations. Western philosophy tends to focus more on justifying and interpreting the physical and external world, while Eastern philosophy tends to focus more on justifying and interpreting the internal and spiritual world.

For example, Western philosophy uses concepts such as logic, science, and sensory experience to justify and interpret the physical and external world, while Oriental Philosophy uses concepts such as contemplation, inner and mental experience, and religious teachings to justify and interpret the internal and spiritual world. Furthermore, in Western philosophy, concepts such as postmodernism, relativism, and communication theory are used to justify and interpret a world in which concepts and values are dependent on culture and language. In contrast, in Oriental Philosophy, concepts such as unity and universality are used to justify and interpret a world in which everything is related to everything else. In terms of ethics and values, Oriental and Western philosophy also differ significantly. One prominent difference in ethical philosophy between Eastern and Western philosophy is that Oriental Philosophy emphasizes more on conscience-based ethics and local ethics, while Western philosophy is more focused on justifying ethical principles based on logical reasoning and general principles.

Overall, Oriental and Western philosophy seek to justify and interpret different worlds, and each of these philosophies is unique in responding to various challenges and questions about reality and nature based on its cultural, historical, religious, and philosophical foundations. For example, in Oriental Philosophy, ethics are based on concepts such as Karma, dharma, nature, shanti, and inner reflection, while in Western philosophy, ethics are mostly based on concepts such as human rights, social obligations, and general principles. Another difference between Oriental and Western ethical philosophy is in regards to values.

In Western philosophy, values are mostly shaped by religious teachings and communal life, while in Oriental Philosophy, values are more focused on personal experience and inner reflection. For instance, in Eastern philosophy, values such as simplicity, humility, resilience, and practices such as Yoga and meditation are emphasized to attain personal peace and happiness.

The differences between Oriental and Western ethical philosophy regarding ethics and values indicate that each of these philosophies seeks to respond to different challenges and questions about ethics and values, based on their unique cultural, historical, religious, and philosophical experiences. I hope you have reached a general understanding of, “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” and that questions have been posed to you and you have also sought their answers. There is no superiority of Oriental Sciences and Philosophy over the West, as their way of thinking has a different path than proving opinions. Oriental Sciences and Philosophy mainly address human internal subjects and still stand on their own theories and maintain their authenticity, but they also have a view of the modern world and have been striving for equality and balance with the West for many years. On the other hand, the West also has a clever look at Oriental Sciences and Philosophy while moving forward in various issues, and personally, I admire the efforts of both East and West.

This is the way of thinking. It does not recognize prejudice. It is a way of thinking beyond personal interests. Thinking has identified the fundamental basis of humans and continues its path with momentum regardless of whether we call it Eastern or Western. It is thinking that has led us to the fundamental question of where we come from. In the East, they have been and are using methods to seek answers to this question. In the West, they have been and are using different methods to seek answers to this question. When we put these two subjects together, we will realize that science and philosophy can be beautiful and pleasant to us and give us a better perspective. Both “East and West” have had and still have their own mistakes, and this is the result of thinking that apparently the world’s existence tests us at all times. When I said that a teacher is not just one person, but everything can be a teacher, this is what I meant. From the universe to the depths of an atom, the seas and oceans, the air, water, soil, fire, forests, and all that we know, and all the things we have not reached or do not have a suitable answer for, have been and will be our teacher.

A journey deep in the thought of the East: Mother Nature gives us life energy every moment. The spiritual and mystical dimensions of human beings have always been fascinating and mysterious throughout their lives, and this fascination exists in all individuals with different inclinations and worldviews, and has never lost its freshness.

With the crystallization of technology in life and the increase in occupations, the distance of human beings from this dimension has increased, but it has never been forgotten to the extent that even the curious human has used this tool to discover and experience more in self-awareness, and perhaps we can mention the making of science fiction movies as an example. Where did these apparently imaginary films and stories come from and what was their origin or purpose?

The greatest characteristic of the world of the mind is its unknown nature. Many stories and narratives have been told about the world, and ancient paintings and other works of art have also made references to it that have been left from ancient times, but the lack of scientific experience has made it unattainable in a way. With the help of technology, humans have taken a step on the moon and sent a probe to Mars and beyond, and have been able to penetrate the depths of space with the Hubble Telescope and the recently launched James Webb Telescope, but still remain unable to see and travel within themselves and fully examine a planet called Earth, whose unfinished secrets lie within. The human body is the most unknown thing in science, and even the Earth itself, which has hidden unfinished secrets within it. It goes without saying that scientific familiarity with this vast world is a special and strategic step towards ultimate self-awareness.

Why do some people respond to treatment while others don’t? Our illnesses are manifestations of internal and external events in our bodies. However, people’s general understanding of various diseases and pains is not desirable, so as soon as they get sick, they try to end the pain and illness in any way possible. This rush can be so great that the disease is practically suppressed, and it is obvious that rapid suppression of the disease will pave the way for the onset of another disease if the underlying cause is not investigated.

With a logical mind, people see their findings differently every moment, and nothing is as we have thought before, but the principle of uncertainty (Heisenberg) easily makes a mockery of any physical nature and their relationships: This incident was not particularly desirable or pleasant for scientists at the beginning, although the scientific community was forced to accept it, and after some new relationships in the world based on new findings emerged, which justified many issues. Our modern knowledge has made us more familiar with the mysterious world of the mind, which is, of course, an ancient knowledge, and attempts have been made to scientifically address the real concept of the mind and its function.

A world on which the foundation of existence and life is built.

The emergence of modern physics has created a great revolutionary movement in the field of physics and subsequently in the minds of scientists. However, today’s knowledge is only capable of understanding a small part of this new and mysterious world in this infinite sea. No intelligent machines or devices have yet been created that can feel and perceive the taste and flavor of food, like a human being does. As a result, no matter how much we sail in the sea of endless knowledge, we will not see a shore and we will have to find another way to cross this endless sea. That is what physics has reached, the knowledge of energy and its effects on human life and the earth, and metaphysics is a great step in exploring and influencing the most important indicators of change and evolution in a human being, and it connects us inevitably with ancient sciences. Sciences that have been passed down to us from the masters of the East. If we place a human being, a tree, and a bird in a set, they are all alive and sentient, and likewise, if we place a clock, an airplane, and a pencil in a set, they are all lifeless and devoid of consciousness. What exists in living organisms and sentient beings, and what is absent in lifeless and unconscious objects, is called vital energy.

The concept of awareness or perception refers to having the power of thinking and accurate recognition of details and various facts. Doubt always exists in our thoughts, which is why those who have less thinking dominating their lives are more steadfast, while those who think excessively may lack willpower. Both have their own dangers. Those who do not think live their lives by doing whatever they decide without any cognitive process creating doubts in them. Short-sighted and biased people in the world are very active and energetic, and nothing is doubtful to them. They never think! If they feel that killing a thousand people will lead to paradise, they will only feel calm after killing a thousand people, not before. They never stop thinking about what they do, so there is no hesitation or doubt in them. Conversely, a person who thinks always thinks instead of making decisions and conclusions. If we close the doors of our existence because of the fear of thoughts, only blind faith remains, which is very dangerous. What is needed is a wise opinion and clear and stable thoughts, and what allows us to make conclusions is exactly the concept of clarity, transparency, and awareness. Awareness means completing the power of thinking, which means that we have gone through such details of thoughts that all doubts have become clear. Now only pure willpower remains. Our planet Earth is an ancient and grand school. It is as ancient as creation itself and as grand as the entire universe. We all have a duty in this school, and in fact, the entire material world that is known as the physical realm is like this. However, we have come to this school to learn something beyond eating, drinking, studying, writing, and fighting. We are all in search of a way back to the home of life, and with the help of sciences, philosophy, physics, metaphysics, mathematics, chemistry, astronomy, cosmology, geology, biology, and so on, we can make this path smoother.

If all of these sciences lead to deep thinking about where we come from, why we come here, and where we are going, or the devastating question of “why”, then they have shifted human life and evolution and have become a border between imagination and reality, and we have been able to find answers to our questions. We have had countless teachers in this school. From the atom’s nucleus, which is as small as a golf ball, to its explosion 13.8 billion years ago and the emergence of cosmic life until today, on this beautiful blue planet amidst a great multitude of stars, planets, and galaxies.

The Unknown Lands of Oriental Sciences and Philosophy: Our earthly teachers, who are numerous, have actually been all philosophers, scientists, and thinkers throughout human history, as well as all natural elements. And this list is not final, and all of them have been our teachers in some way, and we will have countless teachers in the future, and we will also have numerous textbooks. The fundamental goal and “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” from ancient times to modern times has been the progress and development of human perspectives, beyond any blind and ignorant prejudice. We are all students of this school and these teachers, and all textbooks have belonged to humanity.

We want to better understand our place in the grand scheme of existence and practically experience its application. The spiritual golden rope (the universe) has connected all spiritual teachings and humans to each other. Although spiritual teachings have ancient roots, they are actually beyond the bounds of time and place. These teachings are living words and messages that speak to us from the depths of books, dreams, and awakenings. Since the beginning of the universe’s creation, stars have inspired humanity and helped us in understanding spiritual, physical, and scientific aspects. In the East, when someone reaches the rank of a master, they have actually gone through the journey of self-knowledge and have reached the level of “who am I.” This self-knowledge has thousands of paths, and based on thinking, reasoning, spiritual and scientific experience, each person’s perspective on another person is different. Although the paths, methods, and techniques may be different and even contradictory, the goal is the same for all, which is to know ourselves, the environment, the universe, and ultimately, God.

Choosing and wanting to start a path is what confronts us with many questions, and the path of evolution ends smoothly and all end up at the same source: in this path, words are meaningless, and truth, which is the result of thinking, reasoning, and experience, is important, and nothing else matters. Teachers and students in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” are also engaged in spiritual teachings while teaching physics, with every culture, customs, beliefs, religion, language, skin color, and country. The goal in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” is one, and only the paths and exercises may be slightly different to achieve self-knowledge and pure evolution. The value and credibility of each person’s spiritual experiences are a fundamental principle, but it will not complete this process. To manage life, it is necessary to have genuine order, discipline, and enthusiasm to gain an experience, create new questions, and find answers to these questions.

Unfortunately, there is not much talk about spirituality in the general dimensions because we are all trapped in the machines, and modern life does not allow us to think. “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” are only a part of the life and experience of a human being, which in the modern age, must return to a traditional and ancient state of mind to search for its spiritual principles from ancient times to modern times, and while learning technical principles and etiquette and customs, seek its spiritual principles and come to a proper understanding of the thousands of contradictions.

The student must challenge every thought and everything.

Who am I?

Who is he/she?

What is the world?

What is the earth?

Where is he/she?

Where am I?

What are these customs for?

What is the purpose of that tradition?

Why should I follow this instruction?

Why should I not follow that instruction?

And many, many challenges that will lead to the pinnacle of self-knowledge.

When “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” are used as a tool of power and control by humans, which unfortunately happens quite often, their spiritual essence will be lost. The love for the infinite existence that is the preserver of the pure generation in humans will fade away, and eventually the essence of humanity will be reduced to a mere framework of strict rules that prevent humans from contemplating creativity and its beauty. These frameworks are false and create many stories and narratives, 95% of which are unreal and have no spiritual origin in humanity. But non-thinking humans put themselves in these frameworks, and the reason for that is the ease of accepting these stories because thinking and reasoning require courage and time, whereas accepting without thinking is the easiest way. Before delving into the discussion of sound, light, and unknown lands within oneself, it is necessary to mention that this is part of “Oriental Science and Philosophy,” and anyone with any belief and religion can enter or exit these topics with their own personal interpretations that are in line with their beliefs. Humans are free in thought. Although the opinions of astronomers are different, in general, Eastern and Western sciences have similar views.

The spiritual exercises in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” show us how to bring physical body and soul into a state of perceptual equilibrium and understand divine qualities to achieve spiritual flourishing and self-guidance. Keep in mind that the spiritual teachings in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” are very simple, and formal or dogmatic teachings are not necessary in some beliefs and religions to learn them. The only key to success is to get rid of any bias and empty the mind of superstitions. Spiritual flourishing can be accelerated by conscious communication with our inner selves, and significant progress can be made through spiritual exercises in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” and with the guidance of a true master. Spiritual experiences and freedom are available to everyone in this present life.

Every person, with their own perspective, opinion, belief, religion, and within their private boundaries, should embark on a journey within themselves to strengthen themselves and achieve higher spiritual and self-awareness levels. The biggest obstacles are baseless and illogical biases, superstitions, and ignorant and blind thinking. In this way, love replaces hatred, and peace replaces war.

SOUL TRAVEL: The journey of the soul in the field of “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” is of great importance and has received special attention. Masters in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” and even martial arts, which is a branch of these sciences and philosophy, have always been seeking to discover hidden secrets and self-awareness that ultimately leads to a degree of divine love, and this is achieved through activating and practicing specific exercises. Masters have always advised their students to focus on spirituality during physical movements and exercises, to maintain a balance between body and soul, and to pass this on to future generations. A quick look at the lives of these masters, philosophers, and Eastern scholars shows that they have embraced the spiritual path in their lives, which has made them a complete human being with a distinguished personality, always respected among people, and will continue to be so. However, sometimes these spiritual levels, which also come with power, can lead individuals to use it for personal gain, and this is a choice.

Evolution can be positive or negative, and it is up to us to make it good or bad through our choices. The journey of the soul in the field of “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” is a unique experience that includes the belief in the immortality of the soul, and the achievement of this inner experience is the love for the wholeness of humanity and existence and the understanding of its beauty. The journey of the soul cannot be experienced through preaching and limited beliefs. If we properly understand the hidden power in the principles of “Sound and Light” in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” we will see that some stories and parables are not only imaginative and unreal, but also have a strong root in undeniable reality. The resources obtained from the journey of the soul, while delicate, include reaching far and boundless horizons.

When we experience a personal revelation that we are more than just our physical body and possess life beyond it, we become free from the fear of death and feel less anxious. When we realize through our experiences that we are a creative aspect of an infinite universe that is in love and has taught us this love, we also focus more on love in our own lives and feel less anxious or alienated. It should be noted that the soulful journey has been inseparable from “Eastern sciences and philosophy” from ancient times to today, and that is why teachers and students in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” have destroyed their fear and dread of death and reached peace by accepting reality. This spiritual peace has marked their spirituality, and they have abandoned violence and anxiety.

Revolt and forgiveness are in contradiction: where is the balance in this philosophy?

Choice: Human beings have the right to choose. The law of forgiveness is one of the practical and even therapeutic laws and techniques in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy”. Perhaps with the statement and philosophical saying “in the midst of hardness, softness is the way of humanity,” Professor Farahani can explain the balance achieved in contradiction and perhaps show a glimpse of the principles of power and light. Retribution and forgiveness: this is another contradiction, where is the balance?

In most cases, especially in religious societies, the choice between retribution and forgiveness is made. The balance in this contradiction is to act in accordance with justice if our choice is retribution, but forgiveness is something that only a caliph can do, and in their true nature, human beings are caliphs. Therefore, it is better to make a worthy choice, and in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” anger and forgiveness are the same contradiction, and our choice will be balance in anger and forgiveness. When we experience a spiritual purpose in life, we feel more capable, and when we become filled with emotion and joy as a result of these spiritual experiences, we will more easily abandon old and bad habits. Instead of using power and will to fight or impose restrictions, we will see how easily these bad habits can be eliminated.

Is the soul the same as the mind, or is the mind within the soul, or is the mind beyond these things?

What is the mind?

Is the origin of the mind God?

Is the mind dominant over the brain, or is the brain dominant over the mind?

Is God in the mind, or is the mind God itself?

With this perspective, instead of blaming others, people search for the root of everything within themselves and their own choices, realizing that the result of what is happening is actually their own doing and no one else’s fault. With such power, it is usually easier to serve others, and personal constraints are easily forgotten. It should be noted that there may be a journey of the soul or other things mentioned in various beliefs and religions under different names and forms. Therefore, I recommend researching and choosing a name for these writings according to your own beliefs and religions before expressing any opinions about them. As previously mentioned, these topics are from “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy”, and no teacher claims that they are complete.

The information presented is the result of years of research, investigation, and experimentation. Behind every science, there is a hidden goal, which is, in fact, the secret of existence and life. Each person clarifies the information according to their own understanding and power of analysis and thinking. Therefore, no theory in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” is refutable or acceptable, and everything must be reconsidered and experienced. The morals and spirituality hidden in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” have not concealed any secrets, but rather focus on the soul and recognizing the true identity of human beings. According to traditional beliefs, humans have a soul, even in modern times, although the soul has no connection to daily life and only receives attention when the physical body reaches the end of its life. The soul is the essence and eternal existence of our being, and it can never be destroyed or lost. So, besides giving life to our physical body, what is the role of the soul when it is not born, does not die, and is not stained with sin?

Due to the problems of the world today and our modern era, we easily forget our identity, and our physical senses and emotions become confused, resulting in us being deprived of spiritual insight. The recovery of this spiritual insight is called the journey of the soul. Any interpretation other than this from the perspective of “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” does not have the name of the journey of the soul. The journey of the soul can be achieved through spiritual exercises in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy”. Many people experience the journey of the soul as a form of expansion in awareness and knowledge, including as an internal inclination to connect with a friend or to understand deeper concepts that lie behind ordinary affairs. Others have had impactful and magnificent experiences during the journey of the soul. When taking steps towards unknown lands, be careful because you are entering a world of infinite information, which can be confusing and dangerous. When embarking on the journey of the soul, you are faced with a world that has placed infinite information within itself, and this information is capable of introducing itself to us in any form, shape, and nature, causing us to become lost. Therefore, what people do to connect with their loved ones during the journey of the soul can introduce very misleading information and unreal images to our brains. The human brain creates images through internal information. This means that you see and think you wanted something, but in reality, you are witnessing an illusion.

The illusion is based on infinite information in the universe and other worlds, and distinguishing this illusion from reality requires special exercises that 99% of people are unable to perform. Therefore, it is recommended that you focus on your normal life along with your thoughts and never try to enter a world where the border between imagination and reality is so thin and infinite that it can be confusing. With philosophical and scientific exercises in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy,” the boundary between imagination and reality can be determined, and we can have a different but real and not illusory sense of ourselves and within ourselves through the journey of the soul and the gained experience. Spiritual exercises in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” are different from prayer. These exercises encourage us to listen to ourselves. Unlike other methods, we are the ones who remain silent and listen. Spirituality in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” is also different from meditation and is more active in comparison. However, before spiritual exercises, you must learn and experience these meditation methods.

Science is a step-by-step process, and there is no elevator. Each science and theory is a starting point for another science and theory, and this path continues to infinity, which is called linear evolution. Spirituality in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” is different from meditation because instead of patiently waiting to reach a state of awareness, we actively connect to this awareness. This is particularly challenging because we must cross the borders of infinite illusions and imaginations to reach the truth. These spiritual exercises do not involve physical movements, unlike worship in religions, and this does not mean that the person is without religion, but rather on a different path. The journey of the soul is also different from the reflections that ordinary people make, and it has been explained that the unknown world can be confusing. If we use the reflection body to travel beyond the physical world, we will be limited to that reflection world, which is the wrong way. Reaching the state of spiritual awareness goes beyond the worlds, and it gives us the opportunity to reveal the truth in each of these worlds.

These are the names by which these worlds are known in “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy”:







Different levels of the soul hierarchy are necessary for specific spiritual exercises in “Eastern sciences and philosophy” because these points can be used to distinguish between imagination and reality, and this can be achieved with patience, perseverance, and continuous practice. Contrary to some who accuse “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” of being irreligious, it is necessary to explain that the goal of all these exercises and the use of specific names is nothing but reaching a common understanding, which is word formation for mutual understanding of a common thing. And that exercise is for self-awareness, which will ultimately lead to spirituality. If “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” is skeptical and irreligious, then what is all this research, experimentation, and practice for achieving ultimate self-awareness?

Set aside prejudice: love and affection are seen in all religions, beliefs, and denominations. Therefore, with a careful look, we will realize that perhaps the way of using these exercises is different from religions and denominations, but we must understand that the goal is the same, and only the paths are slightly different. This goal is the promotion of spirituality and self-awareness. And one of these types of exercises is the pronunciation of sound and the creation of sound (HU), which is one of the sacred names used for it.

(Its English name is HU).

If you want to see this connection line, you have to split the power of the sound of divine light atoms so that you can enter the unknown worlds yourself.

These sounds are known as the 7 cosmic sounds that make up the 7 main lights. A spiritual compass.

In fact, the human body acts like a compass and splits the cosmic light into other lights, which are actually a code, a handwriting, a note that needs to be deciphered. Like Newton, who discovered the law of light, and the next scientist discovered infrared light, do you see? East and West do not differ much in opinion.

To perform this exercise, choose a quiet place to sit or lie down. Relax and clear your mind of all black and white thoughts. Close your eyes and breathe calmly, and for a few minutes, whisper the sound (HU) loudly. Then listen carefully in silence, perhaps you will hear the reflection of this sound or maybe you will experience a new insight or intuition in your life. Did you do it? It was amazing, wasn’t it?

Now you have entered the world of light, and with more exercises, you can unlock the codes of these color spectrums. Each light spectrum is the boundary between imagination and reality and has a secret in itself: truly, man is amazing.

Now have you noticed the spiritual connection or the journey of the soul? Have you seen your infinite world? It is also possible to reach this infinite wonder with the laws of physics, astrophysics, mathematics, and the laws of light. Here, the landscapes are important, not the destination. It is an illusion that scientific superiority over other sciences exists because it is never like that. With self-discipline and self-surrender, you can express your own spiritual foundation.

Oriental Sciences and Philosophy: teach us that through spiritual exercises, we can cooperate with the world of existence on Earth. This perspective means that we have become a bridge between imagination and reality. By setting aside prejudices and looking inward, which is pure soul, we can become good ambassadors of the world of existence on Earth and help the world to improve. When we are pure, good, and generous, we can be better ambassadors for God on Earth, and nothing more. The free interpretation of these beliefs is respectable, but the perspective of “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” implies purity and purity, along with thinking and reasoning. The result of these beliefs is that we will have a channel in our lives to flow more spiritual and world light, and we will convey spiritual happiness and flourishing to those around us, eliminate hatred and replace love, and replace war with peace. In the realm of “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy”, what is never lost is individuality, and this is the point that distinguishes “Oriental Sciences and Philosophy” from extremist Buddhism and Hinduism. Oriental Sciences and Philosophy: Nevertheless, it has deep respect for all sacred beliefs, including human rights and privacy.

During dreams, the soul, which is much more connected to the spiritual world, preserves subtle phenomena such as thought, emotional excitement, intelligence, and everything related to the mind. All of these qualities are essential for spiritual bodies such as “THE ETHERIC” and “THE CAUSAL” bodies and the essential mind, and when the soul gains control over these situations during dreaming, it becomes the absolute ruler of its universe. Love causes two souls to bond, and this can be easily seen in both the dream and physical worlds. This is one of the blessings of the world of existence that leaves love in our hearts and connects us to each other. Imagine two galaxies with billions of stars and planets that collide with each other due to gravity and illuminate the universe for centuries. The bonding of the heart can also be called galactic collision. Therefore, when two humans marry and establish a spiritual and heart-to-heart connection, their inner world becomes thousands of times more luminous.

When this process is accompanied by genuine love, oneness and infinity can be achieved, and the entire universe will be open to you. You can pass on these generalities to the next generation through DNA and make the world full of the light of the world of existence, replacing hatred with love. In this way, you will only see light, which makes the universe infinitely more luminous and beautiful, and you will see that nothing exists except the rays of light. In this state, you become one with the world of existence like a caliph, and you become its representative.

Being a caliph with love and light for oneself is perhaps a sense of superiority, but it comes with laws, generosity, and kindness, and seeing the world as luminous with all it has and will have. Evolution begins with a spiritual journey or a journey within, and the observation of the infinite universe and becoming one with it ends with the birth of a human who has transformed from one unit to another. This ending starts again with a spiritual journey, and this cycle will not stop as long as there are humans. One of the methods used to guide students in understanding spirituality is through dreams. To enhance spiritual understanding, it is achievable through spiritual exercises and utilizing the knowledge present in the dream state, and dreams play a significant role in the spiritual flourishing of students. Dreams provide a glimpse into heavenly realms (here paradise is a metaphor) and in many cases serve as a tool for learning and perhaps even a message for achieving superior knowledge. In dreams, our true character with all its fears and desires is presented to us, and we accept things in dreams that we may not have enough honesty to accept when we are awake.

Karma, or the spiritual debts of our ancestors, can be consumed in dreams. The goal of karma is to open the window of our consciousness towards learning spiritual lessons, and in a spiritual lesson, there is no such thing as punishment or reward. If we can understand the hidden spiritual lessons in dreams, we rarely need to experience them again in waking life, and the main objective is to continue our growth and flourishing. By knowing this, our worries and sorrows in waking life decrease significantly. Many ordinary people believe that the images and symbols they see in dreams are common and easily interpretable by everyone. We can find books that have content on water or horses in the dream world, but spiritual teachings in the karma section prove that dreams, like DNA, are unique to each individual, and each symbol may have its own meaning and interpretation for each person, which may differ from others, and this contrast is, in fact, the principle of equality. Therefore, the key to interpreting each person’s dreams is in their own hands, and this can be an excellent spiritual exercise. The order of events and dream characters never has a clear meaning.

Terrifying nightmares can contain messages for our personal growth, and despite this, most dream characters reflect our true dreamer personality, and dream elements serve as a key to understanding our identity and purpose. Spiritual and philosophical dimensions suggest that when trying to understand the meaning of dreams, we should look for a positive message: in dreams, there are many levels, and if the dreamer is aware of their presence in the dream world, they can gain mastery over their dream experience. Dreams can also have a predictive aspect, in which case we can sit in a position beyond the natural course of time and space and have a general view of the future. However, it is better to limit this prediction to our personal lives. Keep in mind that the likelihood of misunderstandings and misinterpretations about dream symbols is very high. For example, if we see an earthquake in a dream and rush to warn people after waking up, the chances are that the event will not happen, and we will get into trouble.

Exercises: One of the reasons for distinguishing between dreams and reality is the hidden truth within the dreamer themselves, which is different from predictions. Understanding concepts and events is a particular form of analysis that will be carefully examined. Recording dreams is also very useful because it bridges the gap between inner and outer worlds: most of our dreams are quickly forgotten, and many people are surprised by the abundance of their dreams after reading their dream journal. This also provides an opportunity to identify our dream pattern: personal symbols may appear regularly, and recognizing patterns and symbols facilitates understanding the existing connection between experiences. The ultimate goal of dreams is to bring the individual closer to sound and light techniques, as well as analysis and interpretation, and the resulting outcome. Therefore, dreams and the process of being have a common goal, and each dream can be a step towards spiritual flourishing and can be an inspirational journey for ordinary people.

Nothing happens by chance, and life is no longer perceived as a worldly and accidental experience. Separating dreams from reality and understanding each one correctly and using and experiencing them separately requires a consistent exercise, and each physical and respiratory technique and exercise is designed to achieve this goal, and coherence in them is essential. If dreams and reality hidden in dreams are not distinguished from each other, it can lead to madness. Spiritual exercises can prevent this madness. The greatest joy of life occurs when you are not aware of any events and experience them at the time of their occurrence, but if you want to enter the field of science, you must also accept and pay the price for it.
