Constantly torn between "if it's meant to be, it will be" and "if you want it, get it".
Someone distributed this paradox in the Spiritual Networks community and admitted that she does oscillate from time to time between these two extremes. When I thought about this tension I figured that there is a pretty simple solution to the problem: just declare: "If you want it, get it, inshallah!" Isn't this little "God willing" suffix what a spiritual path is all about? Of course we want you to follow your soul longings, but please let God guide you in your quest just to make sure that you really like what you end up getting.
