The Iranian Metaphysicals

This chapter narrates a woman's spiritual journey that set the stage for her embrace of Cosmic Mysticism. The woman, Arezu Khanum, experienced two dramatic visions that had been crucial in forming her mystical sensibility, including her orientation toward Cosmic Mysticism. The first vision, of two glowing angels, stoked Arezu Khanum's interest in books about religion and metaphysics. The second came at a time when she was having a troubled relationship with her older son. The chapter examines how Arezu Khanum's visions opened her mind to scientific truths, particularly in the realm of quantum physics, and how all of her physical and psychological ailments were miraculously cured through metatherapy. Her emotional relationships, particularly with her sons and other family members, improved significantly. Furthermore, Arezu Khanum's account of her metaphysical adventures opens up a window onto multiple trends within the landscape of contemporary Iranian spirituality.

Keywords:   mystical sensibility, Cosmic Mysticism, religion, metaphysics, scientific truth, quantum physics, metatherapy, spirituality
