The higher self

 The Persian translation of God is "Khoda" and is written like this:

 

           خدا

 

It is not known to what extent the thesis will be accepted. However, the word is literally translated as: 

"higher self"

It is evident that the ancient Persians called this word "God" as an act of self-discovery! You find God through yourself!

No matter who your god is or whatever you believe in, the only way to him is through you. The way to your higher "I" goes through hard work on you! 

 

- The Bhagavad Gita

"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self"
