Man is Never Alone – Mahabharata

You think that I am single and alone, But you are forgetting the supreme truth who dwells within you. Whatever wrong is being performed by you, he sees and notes it all.
Heaven, earth, and sea, sun moon and wind and fire Day, night, the twilights, and the judge of souls The god of justice and the heart itself All see and note the conduct of a man. (Mahabharata)
We think that we are alone in this world. This is a wrong notion. No one can be alone. We all are connected by that Supreme Truth. Whatever we do in this life will reflect in our subsequent life.

Earlier from the Mahabharata

The creator of the world can be seen through the wealth of intelligence and the lamp of the mind. (read more)
