The time to sow seeds of good karmas is now. We do what we think is right. What we think is right is often wrong. Whatever happens, happens for a reason. You may not know the reason, but it is always there. I am never alone. God is always with me. A burdened mind may snatch some fleeting moments of pleasure, but it cannot experience true happiness.
