As soon as you realize that you have taken a wrong turn, that in succumbing to the lure of fleeting pleasures you have been serving negative forces, turn back, and quickly distance yourself from these dangerous regions where you lost your way. Understand that your entire future depends on the regions toward which you are heading.
Religion teaches that God punishes us for our evil deeds and rewards us for our good ones. But this is simply a manner of presenting things.
The truth is that God neither punishes nor rewards us.
It is we ourselves, by our thoughts, feelings and actions, who choose to enter this or that region within us; and depending on our choice, either we have to suffer or else we benefit from those regions with splendid conditions.
There is an enormous difference between heading into regions of light and those of darkness!
