Healing is not just about struggle…

Dec 1, 2016 | Sufism

The poet Rumi said, “If you get irritated by every rub, how can your mirror ever be polished?”

When you embark on a path of healing and transformation, sometimes the mirror gets rubbed pretty hard. You might be thinking, “Shouldn’t it be shining pretty bright by now? We’ve been polishing steadily for quite some time!”


Fortunately, the mirror can also be polished by washing with the pure water of love, by resting in the arms of the Beloved, by swimming in an ocean of bliss!

If you had your choice of which way to walk the path, which would you choose?

As long as we’re in these dense human bodies, we continue to face challenges, and the challenges of 2016 have been plenty!

So, as we’re nearing the end of this year, remember to take time out for a swim in the ocean – the warm ocean inside your heart, that is. Take time to wash with the pure water and to rest in the arms of Love. Share your heart, your love and your joy with those who uplift your spirit.

The healing doesn’t have to come only through struggle. Allah wants us all to be happy. He wants us all to know his Love.
It’s up to us to take the time and say “YES!”




If you feel called to swim in the ocean of bliss with beloveds, you are invited to join us for the new webinar, “Poetry of the Sufi Mystics: Awaken Your Heart through the Language of Love!”

This event is so special! I don’t know if there’s ever been anything like this.

The emails we’ve been sending out don’t really do it justice. I put together a video with an introduction to the instructors and a little bit about what you will receive.

If you have questions about this event, you are welcome to email me or call me. To email, just reply to this email. Or call me at 301-514-0113.

The webinar series begins this coming Wednesday, December 7th, so act now if you want in. Register online or contact me with questions.
For financial questions, contact Maryam Reimer at customercare@sufiuniversity.org. Partial scholarships are available.

Wishing you a blissful swim in the ocean of Love!
With love and gratitude,
Mastura Graugnard on behalf of all your friends and family at UOS
