The Third Valley

The Third Valley

The transcription of the Third Valley
Third Valley
Hello friends, I am Hossein, a traveler. Today’s agenda is the third valley. In its title, we inserted 91 showing the year 1391 (2012). The third valley states that “Nobody is concerned as deeply as a human being for their true self”. Generally, about 99 percent of human beings have problems in their thinking, their thinking is ill, or they have not understood (the meaning of) real contemplation or they have not realized the essence of the matter. In these 14 valleys, step by step we propose these matters. When we properly work on these 14 valleys, and study them [carefully], all our traits, thinking and contemplation will change. Have you ever heard of Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds? Three stages: first thoughts, which means thinking, then, Words which means speaking, and finally, Deeds come. What does it mean? It means we believe that Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds, are related to each other. We learn who we are, what our duty is and which kind of creature are we. We learn what our duties are? In the first valley, we learned that “All structures begin with contemplation”, we are creatures whom God created in a way that we have to have plan for our life, and for planning. We should think and contemplate. The second valley asserts: No creature comes into existence without a purpose; none of us are insignificant none of us are futile none of us are insignificant even if we think of ourselves as that. None of us are creatures without value. Because many times, we ourselves said the statement that “we are nothing, we are not anything”, “we are valueless”, “many years have passed”, “I am old and destitute of time and energy”, “I am old and so on” We said such things, Unfortunately, you hear these words from a 30-year-old young person, or from a 40-year-old young person, They say: we are old and destitute [of energy], It seems to them when a person becomes more than 17 or 18, they are old! No! It does not hold true to us. And I provided some examples. The third valley again shows us another stage, it states “no creatures are concerned as deeply as a human being for their true self”. See, this valley starts with the word: “should”, sometimes, we say: “maybe”, and sometimes we say: “shall we”, it is more polite. You can accept it or not, but when it says: “you should” it is an obligation, it means we have to definitely know this statement. What should we know? We should know no creatures think of a human being as the person themselves.
We have an idiom [in Persian], this idiom may illuminate your mind. This idiom is from southern Iran, the idiom reads that: “Neighbors, come to my assistance so that I can be a dutiful wife”. “Neighbors, help me so that I can be a dutiful wife! This holds true for all human beings, This idiom is stated for a new bride, a spouse who wants to do her duties, but asks for another person’s help to come and wash the clothes, to come and iron the clothes, or asks for help in making omelet. Or a wife who asks another person to make omelet, or asks others to make Ash (a type of Iranian stew), or asks others to prepare that [type of] food, or when she wants to invite some guests, 60 people must come to her assistance. What is the matter? This lady wants to make Abgoosht (an Iranian stew) or omelet, or salad, and others must help her. Some people’s thinking and contemplation is that others must do their duties, they are needy for others’ [help], they do not believe in themselves at all, they do not believe in themselves, sometimes, this is so important [to them] that they deceive themselves, they hoax themselves, they cheat themselves, saying I do not know how to make food. This person will never make food to the end of their life, I do not know how to iron, I get the laundry to wash my (dirty) clothes, and she does it! I do not want to gossip, but I can’t, I do not know the reason. I do not want to interfere with others’ affairs. I do not want to interlope on people’s affairs, but I do not know why I do it, I have no control over it. Who then is responsible? Your father?! Everything depends on you! Everything is under our control.
I do not want to do that job, but I do not know why I can’t. What shall I do? Have you got a solution to tell me what to do? They act as if they are right! They do the wrong, but they do not accept its responsibility. They refuse to accept that it is their own job, it is their own want! Therefore, to deceive themselves, they say: “I do not know whose fault it is”! I do not know how it was [made]! I do not know why it is so! Then, you see some people come to the point that they shift their own responsibilities, own wrongs, thoughts and affairs onto others. This person always falls behind, they are always preoccupied! They are always suffering, they are always unhappy. They have to accept. What should they accept? They have to accept their own ability, their own responsibility and their own job. The person must not say “I steal things, but I have no control over it!” They must not say: I really do not want to steal things, I even have gone on a pilgrimage and prayed, I have said prayers not to thieve anymore, but I again commit theft. I don’t know, it is out of my control! I don’t know who controls it? Really, it is under your own control! No one else controls it! But they want to claim in a way as if they were innocent, as if Hidden Forces or Magic powers or a genie or Hidden Forces force them to thieve. Are these forces workless? The only thing they might do is to inspire us, but they do not force us. We have to accept our own responsibility. Otherwise, we cannot do anything for any cases.
For instance, the wife comes and says my husband kicks me. I am sorry but an old [Iranian] proverb states: If you do not step on a dog’s tail, it would not bark! When you step on its tail, it will bite your leg! Then, if your husband kicks you, it is 100 percent true that you do something, and he would kick you! He is not mentally impaired [to kick you out of the sudden], you irritate him, or you provoke or torture him, or you say something to burn him or you afflict him in a way that he acts like that! It means the problem has two ends. But you pretend as if you are innocent! And you ask: why does he kick me? Kicking is not proper! I never confirm kicking, I never welcome these things! I never follow this job, But in some cases, you do something [wrong], you say something, which is worse than lots of swear words, which are worse than kicking, making them angry and kick you I do not want you to be full obedient. Just think a little! Just contemplate a bit! Just plan for it! Consider the matters! Nothing will be solved by being bloody-minded! You know this man is slightly mad, you know he is crazy, then be calmer, do not trigger his anger! A woman should find a way to the heart of her husband. All the women fully know when they can make their husband angry! They know when they can irritate their man! The women know how to calm him down! We ourselves are responsible for all of these issues. Now I read the valley and explain each part.
We have to know no creature is concerned as deeply as a human being for their true self. With the beginning of life in this valley we have a fresh start which will steer us toward health, peace, calmness and comfort. Then, it states: with the start of life in this valley, now that we entered this valley, we want to start new inception, what kind of inception? Some people ask what the use of knowing these matters. What is the use of them? For instance, when we say Zayanderoud River ends in Gavkhouni Lagoon, so, what is the benefit of this piece of information? What is the use of it to me? Having general information is good, excellent, it is good to know where Hirmand River ends in, it ends in Hamoun Lake.  It is very good to know where Shirkooh Mountain is.  It is located in the south of Iran. It is good to know where the Aras River is. Having general information is very good, but when we work on the valley, we have to know the use of it. In Congress 60, we do not learn anything useless! Everything we learn is useful to us. Because we need it. Our job is practical. In the valley, it is stated that we start inception which leads us towards health, peace, calmness and comfort. If we are ill or have a disease, we want to be healthy again, If we have fight or quarrel, we want to reach peace. If we are depressed or distressed, we want to reach calmness. If we are entangled in different financial crises, and we want to reach comfort, that is why we want to start a new beginning.
We hope that by observing the nature you arrive at vast dimensions, like musical sounds shine in your universe, so that you find the key to your prime road. When it says by observing the nature, it means we have to look carefully at nature and learn lessons from it. All the great figures learn from nature. All the issues are imitated from nature. If human beings invented airplanes and they did so, because they imitated the flight of birds (biomimicry).If human beings swim, they have imitated fish. Submarines are built to imitate the motion of fish. Human beings imitate lots of things from nature. In this valley, it is said that you have to imitate nature. What do you learn from nature? You see how a bone dry tree blooms in spring, the tree blossoms, it fruits. It is hot first. Then, it snows, you see how dry rivers become full of water again. When we look at nature, we see everything is constantly changing and is in good situation. Trees die but they revive again. You have to find the key to your prime road. It means you have to find your way using your contemplation.
When we want to solve a problem we use the word “key”. When we want to open a door to enter the room, we should have its key. If we have the key of a safe, it opens easily, but if you do not have its key, you face lots of problems. You may break the door apart, you may break your hands and legs, and finally you cannot enter. Sometimes some doors are easy to break by an axe, even you cannot explode it, you have to find its key, when you find the key, you can easily open the door. If you have the key of any problem, you can easily solve it. It was an example. "We know very well that if a person themselves do not search for the real subject, even if they hang out with all the expert explorers, they cannot reach the reality." Again, it emphasizes the same point. It constantly asserts that you yourself must do your duties. Even if you hang out with expert explores, you cannot reach the real point; unless you take action. If you hang out with all the poets, you won’t be a poet; unless you start writing poems. If you hang out with all the physicists, you won’t be a physicist! Unless, you start studying and exploring. It is understood from the above and we practically reached this point that to overcome our own problems, we ourselves play the most important role.
From the above discussion, it can be concluded that for solving our problems including any type of problems, our problem can be a physical disease, our problem can be a mental illness, it might be insomnia, our problem might be poverty, or it might be addiction. Our problem can be anything! Our problem can be an emotional one, it might be a love problem. Our problem can be of any type. We came to this conclusion that in our problems, the prime role is upon ourselves, if we think that other people have to come and solve our problems, we are absolutely wrong! If you think like the Persian idiom: “oh my neighbors, come to my assistance so that I can be a dutiful wife!” If you have this belief, you are absolutely wrong! If you think other people must help you to be dutiful, after six month, you will be divorced! We have to know the prime responsibility for solving a problem is upon ourselves. And we have to think most and put the most effort into solving it. It again emphasizes that the full responsibility for solving a problem is upon us. We said: the overall responsibility is upon ourselves, not the complete responsibility. We have to accept and understand this point. We are in trouble and under torture until we understand this point!
The responsibility of this job is upon no one. The responsibility of solving problems and crises is upon no one but ourselves. We of course do not deny the help, sympathy and assistance from other human beings and family members. However, we should pay full attention to this point that the primary role of all the responsibilities and solving problem is played by us. This valley says everything is upon us. We cannot disregard others’ role. The people around us are very effective. But they are supportive forces. But the primary role is ours. The responsibility is upon us. Why is the primary role upon us? Because we have come to existence to know how to solve our problems. If we want to discuss or explain this issue, [it takes lots of time], it is a very philosophical discussion. And finally some may accept and some may don’t. It is natural. However, in our viewpoint, we have come to this existence to solve the problems and learn. It is very natural. When a primary school student of first or second or third grade is given a math problem, and asked to solve it, a problem like if you buy some oranges or potatoes at an estimated price, you give this problem to the student so that they can solve this problem and learn how to use it in their real life. This holds true here: we have come to existence to learn.
The third or fourth graders must receive trainings in one way, and we as adults receive other types of training. We should receive some other education. We have to accept responsibilities and solve the problems. Because we have come to this existence to learn how to solve the problems. Therefore, with contemplation, efforts and hope, we have to try hard to find the key for insoluble issues, therefore, with contemplation, efforts and hope, we have to try hard to find the key for insoluble issues. There are some issues in Congress 60. This valley was rewritten in 2012 to encompass companions. Some companions come to Congress 60 to educate. Some think that they are coming for the sake of their travelers. Apparently, they first come to help their travelers to get fine, but they come for themselves, because they feel far worse than their travelers. They are very distressed, but think they are fine! They first have to receive training to get well themselves. This means a companion in Congress 60 must give up her traveler’[s journey]. They think they come for their travelers. Give him up! Set him free completely! You, lady, are absolutely more distressed and ill than him! And you have to think about it. Companions come primarily for the sake of themselves! And at the second stage, they come for the sake of their travelers. Because some companions are more ill and distressed than the travelers.

They feel highly worse than the travelers. Colloquially, it was said in the old days, maybe it has some negative connotation .In the old days, they said travelers feel far better than the companions! They are completely different regarding their mood. Then, they come for the sake of assistance, they help and I believe it, but they are far sicker than their traveler. They have to give up their travelers and stick to their own education. An idiom in Persian states: stick to the horse, let alone the riding! You are not required to ride the horse, in the first step, just stick to the horse! Then, companions, don’t be proud of yourselves! Companions want to help their travelers and we believe in it, but they themselves need lots of training and they have to be able to solve their own problems. They are not able to solve their travelers’ problems. The travelers have to solve their own problems and the companions must solve their own problems. Ok, put these words in parenthesis (consider these sentences as extra information). If we are now dealing with physical, spiritual, psychological, emotional and economic problems. What is the meaning of these pains and sufferings? We may have various problems, including spiritual, psychological, love or economic problems. What are these problems indicative of? What is the meaning of these pains and sufferings? What do they indicate? One meaning is that we may not have acted properly in the past. One reason is that we have not behaved properly in the past. One understanding is that we have not acted properly in the past. Knowingly or unknowingly, we have done wrong. This bad situation is the result of sowing the seeds, which we have sowed by our own hands, and we have watered them for years. Therefore, it is very natural to face lots of bitter and lethal plants. We said earlier if we have some problems, including economic, emotional problems or pains and sufferings. What do they mean? One of its meanings is we have done wrong in the past, knowingly or unknowingly, and it provides an example (allegory) that when we do wrong, it is as if we have sowed bitter seeds, intentionally or unintentionally we did wrong, like what? Which problems we are facing now? For instance, we had to go for a medical checkup and we did not! We had to take a medicine but we did not! We had to pay the telephone bill, maybe we had to meet our bank loan payments (instalments) and we have not paid them for years, colloquially, we ignored them, now they have been accumulated together, and now they (authorities) have come to auction our house, or they want to take our store, or other issues. Or we have not behaved well with our spouse, we had always been negative and cynical, and we listened to other people’s words, and we have destroyed our lives with our own hands. Then if the mistakes we made like borrowing money from others, but we did not return it back. These are the same as sowing some seeds and watering them and now after some years, they blossom. We have sowed watermelon or Zaghnabut (a very bitter seed), and now bitter fruits and weeds have occupied our farm. Want it or not, these seeds have blossomed, and we are faced with them. Anyway, a question is posed here: what should we do? Criticizing or stating the problems is always very good, but should we do? This is a bad disease, then what should be done? This method is wrong, ok what should we do? Its solution must also be provided. It says ok these events occurred, now should we say “you have to lie in the bed you made”? It is an idiom and common used. In our culture, they say if a person has done a wrong, or made a mistake, they say: “you have to lie in the bed you made”? It means let the person alone, there is no solution for it, or the person themselves say: “I have to lie in the bed I made”? By this statement “I have to lie in the bed I made”? Do we mean we have to give up ourselves or everything? Or are the people required to give up everything? Or we should say: everything has a solution. Ok, I have done a wrong, when a child has done a wrong, you have to tell the child that you have done a wrong, and its solution is this. We can say everything I have done has a solution, why is it so? Because no creature is concerned as deeply as a human being for their true self. Its solution is that we have to accept and bear in our thought and contemplation that never can anyone be more catholic than the pop! In the world no creature is more concerned with Hossein Dezhakam than Hossein Dezhakam. The only person who thinks about Hossein Dezhakam is Hossein Dezhakam. The only person who thinks about a person is that person themselves. The person themselves must solve their own problems. Why does everything have a solution? Because no creature is concerned as deeply as a human being for his true self. It means from now on, we gradually take steps with thinking and contemplation, to solve our own problems. It means now that we realize [the problem], we have to think and contemplate. We have to remove the problems one by one. It was one understanding, there can be another understanding: There can be another realization for this, and this realization is to claim that the problems we have today are not created by myself! We have divided our today’s troubles in to two categories: One in which we had a role, and the second is the one, in whose creation, we had not a role like genetic diseases [disorders]. You see some [people] who are congenitally lame or deaf or they have a special disease inherited from their parents, like genetic disorders which are passed from our parents to us, or any uninvited diseases or different types of problems in whose creation, we or other people have played no role, or the other uninvited diseases or different types of problems, in whose creation, we played no role. We make a deal and everything is correct with it and it has its document, everything is accurately issued officially, you move to your [new] house and take up residence in that house for two years but after a while, you understand that this house has been sold to five other people, and you have no role in making this trouble, you have paid all the required attention and observed all the standard. Then, in some problems, you have a role, but you have not any role in creating this type of problems. Now, a question is raised here: what shall we do? What measures should we take? Because all of our problems need taking some measures, some problems are produced by ourselves and some are uninvited. Now that we have lots of problems, what shall we do? How shall we respond? Shall we say this is our fate? And God has determined our destiny? If you are a faithful person, you will say it is our destiny. Or you say God has determined our destiny. Or we would say it is our chance and Nature has played dice with us. Some may say we do not believe in God and this is our chance and Nature has played dice with us. This sentence was stated by Einstein: "God does not play dice with the universe." Some other people blame their parents [for their misfortunes]. They say our parents have brought us to this world with defective genes or why was I born in such a dysfunctional family? Some people react to their problems with this viewpoint. Some other people blame the earth and heaven [the universe]. They claim that the universe has forced me to exist. Then, some people blame the earth and heaven for their existence. Or they blame other human beings or a special person for having these problems and they pose some other questions. Some say it is the earth or heaven’s fault. Another person blames a special person for their misfortunes. They curse other people for their problems, or they curse some special people for their problems. They blame other people or the earth or the heaven for their problems.

They ask why life existed or why the universe happened to exist. Anyway, the destiny has provided for us two different ways. Now many questions are posed here: we blame ourselves or our neighbors or people, or we blame God and destiny. Some people are always looking for one to blame and they face the problems this way and tens of questions are posed in their minds. And some people blame God or others, then they sit somewhere and surrender themselves to the situation and suffer the pain, so that God or any other people come and solve our problem, so that if our problem is not solved, we can blame the universe and people. Then, our first solution is to suffer the situation so that God solves it, or a person is found to solve it. Our first solution in case of encountering a problem is to speak with God respectfully, and gradually they weep and implore so that God solves their problem. When they are not responded, they would start uttering insults, profanity and blasphemy.

Blasphemy and profanity start. A clever jest can resemble these people: God has His own dialogues. A man had a dairy cow and an old donkey, the donkey was getting old, it couldn’t work and was crippled. He was always praying: “oh, God, my donkey is old enough, just reduce its pain and take it away (deprive it of life) from me.” The man was accustomed to his donkey. The donkey ate lots of fodder but it did not carry any loads. It was only eating without working. The man prays to God to end the donkey’s life. Then, he vows to God to fast so that the donkey dies. He promised to go on a fast for three days so that the donkey dies. As if he wanted to make a deal with God [to give something to God and take something else back]. Eventually, he went on a fast for three days, and he was waiting for God to take his donkey away.
Suddenly, instead of the old donkey, the dairy cow died! The man got angry and asked God: “when you cannot distinguish between a cow and a donkey”. as God, how do you manage the world?!”. The dialogues like these, put us before (against) God. Another anecdote: a villager lost all of his properties in a drought, all the people in the village gathered in the desert to pray for rain, so that God gives rain to them. The village headman gathered all the people in the desert to pray for rain, so that lots of rain comes down, and their prayers were answered and it started raining. It rained nonstop and floods were to be created, and the houses were getting ruined. The houses were made up of clay and mud [in the past], The village headman turns his face to God and says: oh God, I know you are God and YOU manage everything, but I am in control of these houses, if You let raining continue, all the houses will be destroyed soon.

To be Continued....
