Raja Mohammad Najmi, Lahore:
Question: All those books that I have studied on the subject of telepathy instruct us to practice the exercises of telepathy facing the northward direction. All those exercises that you have suggested for the learners of telepathy are silent about any particular direction. The question is that if it is necessary to do the exercises facing North then why have you not recommended it?
Answer: One of the most marvelous creations of nature is the human brain. The human brain, the fascinating computer having more than two billion components, is responsible for the production of two types of senses. One, the senses are required for comprehension of the physical realm. And the other type of senses, opposite in their characteristics to the first one, are responsible for the perception of the stimulations of that agency which is operative in the background of the phenomenal realm.
The senses through which things are perceived under the influence of the gravitation are collectively known as the conscious mind, and the senses in which we are liberated from the influence of the gravitation are known as the unconscious mind. Both the conscious and the unconscious mind are based on a comprehensive network of waves. The waves operative in the conscious senses are triangular and the waves working in the unconscious senses are circular in their formation.
The movement of the earth too is of two types. One is the linear motion and the other is the rotational one. In its linear motion, the earth moves along its orbit obliquely on a linear path, and in its rotational movement, it revolves on its axis like a top. The linear movement, according to the spiritual sciences, is triangular and the rotational movement is circular in its nature. This planet earth is the abode of human beings, Jinni, and the Angels of the lower echelons.
In the creation of man, the triangle is predominating over the circle. In jinni, the circle is overpowering the triangle and in angels, the domination of the circle is more than the jinni even. Man, in his creation, is composed of both the triangle and the circle. The dominating side of man is the triangle and the suppressed side is the circle. When the influence of the triangle is reduced in man and the circle becomes predominating, the man starts witnessing the unseen realm, and the creatures belonging to that realm; the jinni and angels could be easily approached. As the familiarity with these creatures develops man becomes able to converse with these creatures.
The flow of the linear movement is in the direction of the east to west and the rotational or the circulatory movement flows from north to south. In the various exercises of metaphysical sciences like telepathy, the learners are instructed to face northwards so that the flow of the circulatory movement could coincide with the flow of their brain waves and should not cause any pressure upon the person taking such exercise.
When for instance, one jumps in the river willingly he manages to keep his wits but if someone is pushed into the river he is prone to lose his senses. One can face any difficulty if he is mentally prepared to face it, whereas a sudden situation can easily upset anyone causing considerable damage.
We did not mention any particular direction because the lesson of telepathy has not been presented directly so far. All the exercises suggested so far have the only motive of producing the concentrative ability to focus one’s mind and for that suggestion to face a particular direction is not considered essential.
