A Special Message from The Message Council
of the Sufi Order International
We hope that all mureeds might take this opportunity to search deeply within their individual and collective experience, and be present to any need for ongoing healing, as well as for ways to respond to the unfolding world situation with appropriate action. We call upon the local SOI Representatives to offer love, safe haven and inspiration to each other and all mureeds at this time. Some ways to foster spiritual community include samas, dances, classes, Universal Worship, the Healing Service, as well as potlucks or teas.
We encourage local Centers to initiate
the Confraternity of the prayers. We encourage all mureeds to support and
take full advantage of these opportunities to come together, and to attend
to others with particular sensitivity.
The direction of our outer effort may be through attending to the manifestation of the Message at home and in the local community. We urge mureeds to consider developing appropriate action through the venue of our various outwardly oriented activities: the Universal Worship, the Healing Order, Kinship and Ziraat. Additionally, everyone might consider in what ways they can best support those national and international organizations they feel in resonance with. The Pirs, and the members of the Council, will follow these initial recommendations with personal messages, offering further orientation around the issues that concern our community, as well as all people of the world.
With deepest regards,
