Mohammed said, "Trust God, but tie your camel," meaning that we have a two-fold relationship and responsibility to this life. We need to develop a sense of trust in the ultimate benevolence and goodness of this life, and yet we also must be conscious of the needs of the moment and learn to fulfill our role in life in an appropriate and responsible way. The camel driver may know that God is good, but he also understands the tendency of the camel to wander away if left unattended. We may know that everything is working out in our lives, but we also have to do our share in bringing our fulfillment first into focus and then into concrete reality; to let our dreams remain abstractions is to forget to tie our camel; we are here to bring our dreams into manifestation in this life. Don't let your dream get away from you.
