    The moment you are living currently is your, you responsible for the decision and action you take in this moment and the next moment which yet to be given to you belongs to God and he will take decision in it.
    So give your 100% in your moment without worrying for the result that will follow in the upcoming moment.

    The benefit of walking on the path of the truth is that there is no crowd on it.

    I learned from videogames that when you encounter enemies on your path then you are going in the right direction.
