My profound gratitude goes to my dearest, wisest and most God-conscious mentor, confidant and best friend Mrs. Parvin Farjadi, who with her deep love and spiritual insight remains the greatest source of inspiration and solace to me. And who by the grace of God also happens to be my lovely mother. As well as all the messengers of the Divine and all those who positively inspired and empowered others throughout history in any field.
As in regards to what inspired me, … I would say a variety of influences and experiences. ... I always wished to improve the life condition of all humanity and the rest of creation. The sufferings, injustices, atrocities; the psychological and environmental chaos as well as the spread of disinformation and misinformation led me to search for the central system, a clear path, a universal roadmap that would elevate the human condition and thus the world at large.
This great adventure led me to rediscover the meaning of life, love, faith and our authentic purpose and mission in them.
After more than two decades spiritual quest and seven + years of concepting, artistic rendering, writing, designing and production; a wonderful treasure came into manifestation inform of a book by the name of "Rays of Universal Wisdom".
The book's focus is on wisdom, rather then its labeling source. Metaphorically speaking, every universal wisdom is like a ray of sunlight, and as each ray of sunlight can be traced back to the same sun, so can every element of truth and expression of wisdom be traced back to the same Source, the One Ultimate Reality.
Since this book is an artistically interpreted collection of ninety-nine timeless inspirational quotations and commentaries, I felt that a title on the book cover directly cannot really do justice and so I placed the title on the spine and on the back of the book.
Self-deception. Leading to alienation of the self from one's essence and thus from the Creator and the rest of creation.
We should realize that at every stage of life, the preservation of balance and the struggle for justice begin with the self. And that we are responsible for all that is under our control, including aspects of what we inherit beyond our physical attributes. It is our ethical awareness and moral maturity that will enable us to deal with the challenges emanating from these traits.
Ultimately we cannot build a better world unless we have improved individuals, and that should be the starting point of all change.
Our task is accomplished by mending the parts that are within our reach, through which we become active partners contributing to the welfare of the world.
The book is a fusion of art, spirituality and symbolism, written in a very universalistic style. There is "no specific category" that the book would actually fit into, ... It has in fact created a new category of its own.
Rays of Universal Wisdom is for all those who see and seek a deeper sense of the purpose of existence: seekers of truth, lovers of art, appreciators of wisdom and hidden mysteries, students of life, and all who seek enlightenment and inner peace.
The book will also speak to those spiritually and religiously mature individuals who find confirmation of their principles in universal values, and want to promote a shared purpose within diversity. That goal, if realized, could be the foundation for success and harmony at a personal, interpersonal and global level.
Reformers, innovators, visionaries, healers, leaders, counselors, teachers, transformers, revolutionaries, and seekers of excellence will find this book a source of inspiration and hope that gives direction to their purpose in life.
This book can be read in two ways:
My recommendation is to read this book in four circular steps. Learn, connect, synergize, excel, ... (Come back to the first step, learn, connect, synergize, excel and so on and on) …
This book is an artistically interpreted collection of timeless inspirational wisdoms, gathered from the "essence" of universal values that are part of many religious and philosophical traditions.
The Unitarian Universalists consider themselves a "religion" with historic roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions. What I am proposing is not a "new religion", rather some of the eternal universal wisdom that are contained in many monotheistic traditions as well as philosophies.
I believe that it is the task of every individual to do the research, compare and think for themselves while they live according to the highest wisdom they receive so that more wisdom will be given to them.
Well, ... That depends on your interpretation of religion.
Since many of the meanings of the words, concepts, ideas and ideals are deluded and corrupted, we first need to establish a common ground relevant to the true interpretation of the word itself.
This is one of the reasons why I did this book. So I would suggest reading and reflecting on the book before we continue our conversation.
