دره گل مسیری به سوی نور
مجموعه پیش رو تعبیری است به عمق ده سال از رویاهایی که نشانه ها و ابعادی از زندگی پس از مرگ فیزیکی را به ایمان نوید داده و در آخرین رویای مرتبط تمامی عناصر با تعاریف روشن در جایگاه خود مسیر نور را به او نشان داد.
تصویر از مسافری که پا به آن دنیا می گذارد تا به نور یا همان حقیقت هستی بپیوندد.
در ابتدای مسیر با دروازه هایی روبرست که برای گذر از آن باید فعلیت دنیای امروز و تعلقاتش را کنار گذارد و تصاویر مادی را از ذهن خود پاک کند تا جایی که اسارت مادی کوچکتر و ناپدید شود تا بتواند از راهروی زمان عبور و ثانیه ها را بی مفهوم کند.
زیرا زندگی جاودانه با این امر میسر است. فراخی از صفات زندگی در بهشت است که با باغ های انار و دشت های مرتفع با تپه های دور و نزدیک در امتداد نور رنگین می شود. اما این تمام خواستهی مسافر نیست. او به مراتب کمال یافتهی بهشت میاندیشد تا خود را به نور برساند و بهشت را در برابر نور مانند دنیا در برابر بهشت تفسبر میکند. پس از آن نیز عبور میکند و خود را به درهی گل میرساند که از قطره باران و ابر جان گرفته و با نوری که ار دور به او میتابد زندگی میگذراند ولی ریشهی خود را متعلق به آن نمیداند.
بالا و بالاتر به سمت آسمان صعودش را ادامه می دهد و در نهایت آخرین دغدغه اش این می باشد.
احساس آرامشی که در محیطی امن و آرام در جهت آگاهی کسب کرده را بههمراه موجودیت خود رها کرده تا از نور شود.
Valley of Flower Path to Light
The collection is an interpretation of ten years’ worth of dreaming that heralded to Iman signs and dimensions of life after physical death; the last of such dreams containing clear definitions and proper placements of all preceding elements in a clear path pointing to Light.
An image of a traveler setting foot unto the other world to join the Light or the truth of universe.
In the beginning, he faces gates that for passing through them he has to let go of the actualities of today’s world together with all its attachments, to remove all material images of his mind until material bounds get smaller and eventually disappear so that he can pass through the corridor of time and make seconds meaningless; because eternal life will only be possible after such an act.
Plenty is a quality of life in Paradise, where pomegranate orchards and hills small and large paint its vast plains in line with light. Yet the traveler wants more. He is thinking of the perfection of paradise to reach the Light; in his mind, paradise is to Light what earth is to the paradise. So he puts it behind too, to reach the valley of flower, where the drop, the rain and the cloud give life, and living is made on the Light coming from afar (although he does not belong to it either).
He rises higher and higher into the Sky. His ultimate concern is to let go of his existence and the feeling of comfort gained in a safe and quiet place for the sake knowledge in order to become one with the Light.

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
