Based on the treatment model of Congress 60, in order to treat drug addiction successfully, three aspects of human being should be taken into account: the physical body, the psyche and the worldview. The worldview comprises of our perception, outlook and view towards life in general. Of course, we believe that training in worldview for individuals who have not dealt with the issue of addiction can play a significant role in how they deal with life and its obstacles or successes. In Congress 60, one of the most important resources of teachings about worldview is the collection of “fourteen valleys for recovery”.
These fourteen valleys are designed for individuals to follow and carry out in their lives in order to leave negative thinking aside and implement a positive approach in life. These valleys are in particular for the addicts and in general, for individuals who seek a better life.
The collection of the valleys never dictates or enforces any compulsions and always respects the will of the individuals; it does not ask them things which they cannot do. The method of studying the valleys is simple; they must be implemented practically in life, studied in order respectively many times. In other words, the content of the valleys is not only for reading or knowing; it is to understand and apply in everyday life. If we know something and don’t act upon it, it would lose its meaning and value.
The aim of the valleys is to bear the fruit of peace, happiness and serenity for the human beings; the valleys believe that happiness or misery of the people depend on their perception and understanding of the universe surrounding them.
Below are the titles of these fourteen valleys:
The First Valley:
All structures begin with contemplation; without contemplation, all that exist will decline.
No creature comes into existence without a purpose; none of us are insignificant even if we think of ourselves as that.
We should know that nobody is concerned as deeply as a human being for his true self.
In vital matters, leaving the responsibility to God means neglecting one’s own responsibility.
Cognition alone is not the ultimate approach to problem solving in our world. It will be completed with experience and achievement.
Wisdom's command, as the commander in chief, should be carried out accordingly.
The mystery and secret in discovering the truth lies in two factors: finding the right path and what we derive from it.
The path is revealed with progress.
Tolerance is built when a force begins at a low level and gradually increases.
Human being past attributes don’t remain the same because he is constantly changing.
All roaring rivers and gushing springs will ultimately reach the sea and ocean.
Ultimately, the first command is carried out.
The end of each point is the beginning of a new line.
Love is the only true existence; all else are empty containers.
