Trust in God, but be sure that you hold onto the reins of your camel


The title for today’s post comes from an ancient Sufi saying.

It implies the need to have a balance between having faith in God or a ‘higher power’ with the ‘common sense’ based realization that we co-create the reality we call our ‘daily lives’.

The inspiration for the post actually came from a recent discussion I had with a Client who also subscribes to my blog.

So what does all of this have to do with attracting the Love of your life?

As many of you know I am a ‘man of faith’.  My worldview embraces all of the religions of the world.

I am also a ‘man of action’.  My actions reflect my faith.

I am able to get into uncomfortable, imperfect action because my faith in God, provides me with inspiration and faith in myself.

While I seek the inspiration and guidance of God and the Spiritual world, I realize that the choices I make and the actions I take, create the life I so cherish.

When it comes to romantic love, I can not tell you how many times I have had women and men of ‘faith’ tell me that ‘it is God’s hands’….. If He wants me to be married, he will bring ‘Mr./Ms. Right’ into my life.

So, back to the ancient Sufi Saying: “Trust in God but be sure that you hold onto the reins of your camel”.

When I contemplate the meaning of this saying a lot of things come to mind, most notably that I am in charge of the course, direction, speed etc of my daily life.

I, and I alone, am responsible for how I choose to live my life.  I get to pick what ‘doors’ I knock on and which ones I walk through.

If I am unhappy with a particular aspect of my life, then it is up to me to figure out what to do about it.

My faith in God and the ever-present help of the Spiritual world is a resource that provides inspiration, guidance, and yes, reassurance.  However, I am the one that must get into action.

How about you?

Are you sitting on the proverbial ‘fence’ waiting for God, good fortune, or ‘fate’ to bring you the man of your dreams?

If you are actively seeking a loving, mutually fulfilling relationship what are you doing to move forward toward that goal?

An old Hindu saying will add another perspective to this discussion:

“The Grace of God is a warm, gentle breeze that blows freely across the ocean of life; set your sail to catch it.”

Put another way:

If you believe that God or some ‘Higher Power’ supports your efforts toward personal fulfillment, then how do you align your efforts with these forces?

I have provided some questions for your reflection:

  • When it comes to romantic pursuits, what is the biggest challenge you face?
  • What are you currently doing to meet this challenge?
  • What are willing to do, to attract that quality, loving man who absolutely cherishes and adores you?
  • What are you willing to give up to be in a relationship with such a man?
  • Are you really willing to be seen for who you are?

This one is a tough one:

  • What would it be like to live the rest of your life alone, without that loving, mutually fulfilling relationship of your dreams?

I invite you to journal about each of the above questions and see what inspirations arise from your soul.

Trust in God, and remember to steer your camel in the direction that will bring you to your goal of true, lasting love.

If your reflection reveals that you are at a loss as to where to steer your camel, and would like a guide to lead you out of the ‘desert of disappointing relationships’ to the ‘promised land of love and fulfillment’, I have made that sojourn myself and am open to that possibility.

Thank you again Ron for another great insight

So often people place the repsonsibility of their future in the hands of God and don’t want to take action around it. I love the view that when you pray to God asking for something, he doesn’t give it to you. He gives you the opportunity to take some action to get it. Perfect thank you Ron

Love & Courage
