stic religious experience based on Yoga and meditation
Abstract:
This question is whether humanism couldnt attract true and authentic insights of religion? A positive response to this question will approve a humanistic religious experience, but humanistic religious experience probably is not true; because religious experience cannot be essentially humanistic. In my opinion, if humanism attracts the insights of religious experience, it can shape the "egoistic spiritual experience". Egoistic spiritual experience is the result of companionship between religious statements and humanistic beliefs which is rooted in a new spirituality (emulation of some religious beliefs) that influenced by humanism. In fact, the Egoistic spiritual experience is a thesis prescribed to answer basic question considered above.
Based on the conceptual analysis of the three words "experience," "spiritual" and "prescribed", the Egoistic spiritual experience will be defined. In this regard, Egoistic spiritual experience means direct knowledge of a man from his internal capabilities which is emerge in the internal and individualistic activities rooted in the thoughtless experience and meditation in itself. The person for this knowledge should be used to replicate some of its activities; the activities which are purely spiritual and subjective. Diminished Sample of this experience occurs at some of the focus sports. Precisely these experiences occur in the form of Yoga and meditation.
It is claimed in the philosophy of Yoga; the Yogi increases gradually his ability and personal insight practicing and understands himself more deeply. The philosophy of Yoga in particular is providing a way to achieve spiritual consciousness. What Yoga demands is the stopping all knowing, manipulation, operations, activities and mental cognitions, and also disabling the full mind. Full disable of mind to know new and pure knowledge, without any thoughts and impressions of all previous mentalities is what Yoga wants. Yoga should be a practical process for purification, refining breath and focusing on the essential distinction between soul and body and subjective attachments. This process is crystallized with the advent of self-consciousness. In fact, the aim of Yoga is a firsthand knowledge about the nature of sprit and that such knowledge teaches us that nature is independent from anything else in the world. But achieving to this knowledge requires limiting and ignoring the function of the body - the senses, mind, and reason.
Today, meditation is done in many forms but there is only one single goal in the apparent differences of meditation. That is: "Stopping the minds from attention to external objects and events that are causing distress because to achieve to a superior knowledge." In general, the relation between Egoistic spiritual experience and meditation from the perspective of the view is that the nature of this experience can be seen at the end of meditation; if the nature of Egoistic spiritual experience is inner awareness of the features and capabilities of the inner person, meditate is autonomously following the inner world to achieve superior knowledge. So the superior and excellence aware that an individual will achieve only in the inner world is the purpose of meditation and it is the existential experience - spiritual egoism.
So we can conclude that Egoistic spiritual experience is a humanitarian effort in hopes of attracting the enjoyment of religious-mystical experiences. Egoistic spiritual experience is a kind of moving in order to achieve a consistent experience with religious-mystical experiences, but in its opposite. This kind of experience that is concluded from pleasure and comes from the problems of contemporary man is based on the vision of modernity focusing on Yoga and Meditation. This is poses two important points: first, a new meaning of spirituality in the twentieth century as spirituality combined in this word to discover unknown dimensions. Second, the nature of this knowledge is completely autonomous. That is, trying to experience it completely out of the frame of mind by every human being and understanding based on desires and works influenced by it.
