I want to thank each of you, both sisters and brothers, on this day of mothers for being such wonderful mothers of the heart. Thank you for the care you give to your birth children as this nurturing will help bring about a new humanity of children raised with love and guided with principles of compassion and fairness toward all creatures. And thank you also for the children of light born from your truthful words and your compassionate actions and your sincere intentions. They also populate the earth and help bring about a new humanity. And thank you for giving birth to the child of your heart, the qalb weled, who is your spirit child, engendered in your heart through the light of the Pirs and nurtured through your prayers, your praise and your tears. Thank you dervish mothers! May all your children flourish and make the earth flourish!
