A traveler needs appropriate maps, the means for traveling, for example a vehicle, fuel, and provisions. He also needs a wider understanding of the terrain and environment of the journey. He must know his self and the world outside, and read the environment appropriately before he embarks on the journey. Self-knowledge, divine knowledge and enlightenment, are indeed the purpose of this journey, from the Creator unto Him. A person can only relate to others through the knowledge of the One Creator. The root of ignorance and conflict lies in not seeing the one permeating source, which brings about infinite varieties of creations. Through the One, you see duality and opposites as complimentary. Through the lower self, you only see confusion and discord. Give in to the One, and you will be saved from the confusion of your self and others. This is the purpose of these courses.

COURSE ONE: COSMOLOGY OF THE SELF

This course sets out a map of the cosmic design between the outer and the inner, as well as other elements of life and how they work. It offers a description of truth, reality and what life is about and seeks to answer the questions: "Who am I? What is my role in life? What can I do to remain consistently content? How can I live so that I do not deny the world, what is happening in it, and my essential needs?"

Human beings are all travelers in time and space. As we experience diverse situations, we wish to preserve and prolong whatever is attractive to us and repel whatever is not desirable. Our minds and needs change constantly, as do our existential situations; yet we seek to experience constant harmony, balance and continuity. Life's paradox is based on transient realities and permanent truth. We live in a world of changing situations, and yet hanker after absolute certainty and truth. The life we experience draws all its energies and patterns from the absolute truth, manifesting in myriad ever-changing forms in creation.

In order to attain this knowledge, we must first start by reading the map of creational realities: how, for example, the opposites have their roots in each other, and complement each other. Experiencing illness reinforces a desire for good health. Similarly a love for harmony becomes a big incentive for avoiding conflict. The atlas of existence is multi-dimensional, and there are keys to unlock details of these maps.

This map is drawn on a broad scale, as well as encompassing minute details so as to offer both a macrocosmic and microcosmic view of life. It encompasses forms, actions, meanings and the energy source behind it all. The outer map of existence is projected upon the inner map within the heart of man. The human being is a microcosm; within him lies the entire pattern of the macrocosm. Self-knowledge is based on reading this reflective map and applying it, by making mistakes and correcting them.

COURSE TWO: THE PROPHETIC REVEALED PATH — ISLAM

Click here to purchase this course as an eBook.

The course unveils the Prophetic path, enabling people who have studied the cosmic design to maintain inner reliability and reference points. This experiential journey offers keys to the awakening of the heart and its nourishment by means of its purification. Based on the cosmology/view that the heart is the connecting point between the soul (the eternal), and the self (the ephemeral), the course focuses on transformation through awareness and the practices of the Prophetic path. This way of transformation includes understanding accountability, and performing structural responsibilities while being continually aware of the soul and higher consciousness.

Having studied and gained an appreciation of the blueprint of life, students can now learn how religious practices are transformational tools to enlightened awakening. This course teaches the student how to navigate through the challenges of this world while constantly referring to the limitless zone of absolute perfection that produced and sustains this world. It illustrates to the seeker the fact that no one can stop striving for perfection, and yet no one can attain perfection for any durable time. This is because the One Source that contains all these perfections owns and possesses the entirety of creation, and not the other way around. God's perfect attributes permeate all of existence, which bind, unify and drive creation towards fulfillment. The objective of this course is to enable the seeker to love the One unconditionally, and deal with multiplicity rationally.
