Belief and trust

A person started to walk on a rope tied between two tall towers. He was slowly walking balancing a long stick in his hands. He has his son sitting on his shoulders.

Every one from the ground were watching him in bated breath and were very tensed. When he slowly reached the second tower every one clapped, whistled and welcomed him. They shook hands and toll selfies.

He asked the crowd “do you all think I can walk back on the same rope now from this side to that side?”Crowed shouted in one voice “Yes,Yes,you can”Do you trust me he asked. They said yes, yes, we are ready to bet on you.

He said okay, can any one of you sit on my shoulder;I will take you to the other side safely

There was stunned silence. Every one bacame quite.

Belief is different. Trust is different. For Trust you need total surrender.

This is what we lack towards God in today’s world. We believe in God. But do we trust Him.

Very beautiful message worth to ponder over again and again

  1. The crowd has been in full admiration of this man, having his son sitting on his shoulder during this act of balancing between ropes…. admiration doesn’t necessarily lead to the inner trust, it’s admiring what some else does, yet doesn’t take one to action. Just the same with any belief, it takes practice. Tank you Kamal for sharing this story, filled with wisdom.
