A Drop in the Ocean of Love is a collection of personal stories we hope will inspire you, open your heart to greater love, and transform your life. The stories offer a glimpse into struggles that brought about profound transformation for the authors. All seekers committed to the Sufi path of Divine love and healing through purification of the heart, each author shares how the ancient wisdom of the Sufi spiritual teachings brought about life lessons that our souls have come into physical form to learn.
If you can relate to any of these struggles, we pray these stories help you to know you are not alone. We pray they help you to know yourself more completely and to know God through your own heart. If you are called to dive into the depths of the Ocean, we hope you may find yourself as a drop containing the entire ocean within you, knowing that you have never been separate, and that you are and always have been one with The Ocean of Love.
