One of the cornerstones of the sufi path is service, however that Service isnt only given to one’s fellow human beings. We are to serve all of creation. But as you may ask, how does one serve all creation. I would like to share with you one way this is done.
I didn’t know anything about the Mehr animal shelter until a fellow dervish told me about it. Stray or abused animals in Iran are taken in and cared for, and new homes for them are found in Iran or North America. Really great work is done there and I would like to in this post tell you briefly about this organization. In the next post I wan’t to share with you some words on their struggle and more important an idea I have had on a way I would like to offer my services and assistance.
