Fourteen Valleys for Recovery

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 Contemplation


The First Valley:

All structures begin with contemplation; without contemplation, all that exists will decline.
The first step in the creation is a thought or an idea, and this idea is the beginning of creation. At this stage, we need to think about where we are and where we want to go from here. Maybe we imagine that we have always been contemplating, but difficulties and problems and its progress shows that we haven’t been thinking right and have continued our lives with wrong thinking or without thinking; and have lost or are losing all material and spiritual assets that we have. ……….



The Second Valley Hope and Universal Purpose

The Second Valley:

No creature comes into existence without a purpose; none of us are insignificant even if we think of ourselves as that.
Because of those problems and illnesses maybe some of us think that life is over for us and there is no more hope and nothing matters anymore, our life is pointless, and our birth is useless and many other such views to sink more into darkness. When the human being came into existence, the supreme power guided him to a crossroad: one is the path to darkness and the other is the way towards the light (glory).  we must be hopeful that the end of a dark night is a dawn. ………





The Third Valley, Self Awareness


The Third Valley:

We should know that nobody is concerned as deeply as a human being for his true self.
To overcome our problems, we play the most important role and if we assume that others should solve them for us, we are making a big mistake. We have entered this life to learn about solving problems. We must know that devil will enter our thoughts with compassion and it will take the best approach into our intellect in order to hunt our essence and turn us into a ruin. ……..




The Fourth Valley - Self Responsibility

The Fourth Valley:

In vital matters, leaving the responsibility to God means neglecting one’s own responsibility. 
In this valley, we will try to shed light on the borders between our vital matters, supreme power position or responsibility regarding these matters and our own position and responsibilities. This is essential to know that the divine hands inspire and the rest is up to us. Unfortunately, sometimes our expectations of supreme power are not logical, perhaps it is because our knowledge of supreme power is inaccurate. The prayers will be effective if we walk the righteous path and obey God’s commands. We must accept the obligations of our living and never quit trying then our prayers will be effective because this is God’s promise.




The Fifth Valley - Action!

The Fifth Valley:

Cognition alone is not the ultimate approach to problem-solving in our world. It will be completed with experience and achievement. If we pay attention then we would realize that in this very earthly living, some other worlds exist simultaneously. The intellectual world is the basis and the living practice and planning in order to live on vale or other worlds happens in it. Therefore, we won’t get any good results in this valley if we are incapable of transforming our intellectual algorithms into acts. If we are to enjoy eating a sandwich, the image in our mind must be carried out. As we know there is only one way to clear a dirty water which is filtration, therefore transforming an unbalanced human into a balanced one requires purification; In other words, moving away from disvalues to the righteous path. ….





The Sixth Valley - Wisdom's Command

The Sixth valley:

Wisdom's command, as the commander in chief, should be carried out accordingly.
Wisdom is the most significant landmark in our journey of evolution which has neither a beginning nor an end and we must attain wisdom’s command as it is essential in our path. The brain is an interpreter for intellect just like the tongue is the tool for speech or taste. Intellect acts as a great ruler in our universe within or in our city of existence and it has received its throne from the supreme force. In other words, it has the Divine Splendor and governs over our psyche. Obeying all the instructions and laws of this wise king can help us walk the righteous path and lead us towards a higher station in our journey of evolution, one day we will say be and it will be! …..




Now we are at a stage that wisdom must discover unknowns so that we could find the correct path therefore in this valley we continue the discussion on finding the right path so that we realize its importance. Many individuals have gone astray or their lives completely destroyed only because they weren’t able to find the right path. Some of them were strong, determined individuals who were eager to quit their problems but couldn’t do so and at the end, some even committed suicide. ….

The path is revealed with progress.
This valley tells us that when we want to march toward a goal after gathering all the information about the journey, we shouldn’t expect to know all the details as it is impossible to predict everything that might happen along the way. This means that what I imagine can be very different from reality and when theory is put into action many of our calculations could have a different outcome. For example, if we want to apply for a job, we have to leave home and go down to the office and fill up an application form, otherwise, if we sit and wait for eternity nothing will happen by itself.  …….



Tolerance is built when a force begins at a low level and gradually increases.
when human being was created and left the heavens and became a castaway on earth, he was a creature who had the highest intellect, more than any other animal and had the potential of all the virtues and vices in him. He was given free will so as to test him; therefore, he came to a crossroads in which he had to choose one of them, the way of the virtues or the path of vices. Human being is a creation who benefits from free will, therefore with practice he can change his tolerance point. ….


Human being past attributes don’t remain the same because he is constantly changing
This valley or law or path is like a sharp sword; it simultaneously warns and gives hope, it refers to both falling and rising, it is life and death at the same time and generally it demonstrates the forgiveness, compassion, and generosity of the supreme power in the path of mankind. It leaves the lines of free will beautifully in the hands of man so that he would draw up his life as he so desires and shows him that at the end of each stage there is a new beginning. If through purification and refinement we become able to strengthen our out of the body sensation, and pass through the gates of our five internal senses, then we can perceive the sense of divine inspiration, the sense of heavenly choirs, celestial voices, dancing in the skies, companionship of the honorable residents and the sense of hearing God’s voice talking to Moses: take off your shoes because you are walking on a sacred land! ……
All the roaring rivers and gushing springs will ultimately reach the sea
and ocean.
Since humans have been given a material domain or an earthly body, the most important subject in this material world is matter and note that a warning has also been issued to humanity about this:
“If you dominate matter and control it, then you have almost defeated the dark forces however, if matter dominates you and fully conquers you, then you will definitely be defeated. In order to clarify the reason and conditions of a human becoming a gushing spring, we will examine the nature’s gushing springs as a sample. Once a natural spring’s geographical position is unlimbered,
it must have two characteristics:
1- Water reservoir
2- Difference of height or potential to provide the essential pressure for water to gush out.
Humans have different level of wisdom just like springs have different level of water sources and we must continuously increase our internal resources of conserved energy through gaining knowledge, awareness and following the commandments, and by being active and doing spurts, we can create the necessary energy in order to be transformed
into a gushing spring.  ……
Ultimately, the first command is carried out.
In order to achieve goals on earth, we must consider time, meaning any wish or command could be carried out within a specific period of time. If your goal is to produce rice, you won’t immediately obtain it; you should plant the seed first and care for it, so that in the end after harvesting we can obtain rice. Therefore, we should just observe the events so that we get close to the end of creation story of human beings, thus the conclusion is known. We should know very well that no transformation can happen unless alterations gradually take place and every change must take its own time; thus time is needed for changes to occur in the human’s attributes. For example, we can’t make someone literate instantly or a liar cannot be transformed into an honest person in an instant, or an immoral person into a principled, or a substance abuser cannot be changed into a healthy individual in a week.  ……
The end of each point is the beginning of a new line.
It is the nature of words that flow throughout universe with the long strides of a little pen. It is as if brooks join each other to form roaring rivers and bring the message to all people. Through this process humanity’s goals and desires are shaped. This message conveys the imagination to image and the image to the structure of the truth.
Successor: as I said, the end of each point is the beginning of another line or in other words, whenever a book is finished another one is written or when a traveler arrives at a destination, another traveler begins a journey or when a saint is hanged by the ignorant people, another saint is born and this is the Supreme Power’s command.  ……..
Love is the only true existence; all else are empty containers.
When beliefs are blended with real love, one can feel the meaning of love and those who have never been in love are the empty containers. For those who are caught up in vices and are not content in life, there are only two ways. Either they join the forces of truth who seek light and verity or they can wait until the destructive forces, with a great twister, lead them to the depth of darkness. In order to know how the universe and universes rotate around key points and the place where the pillars are connected to and the details of human being’s evolution, its beginning and completion, we must know about the opposites!   …….
