Bible verse of the day 

“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each one is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desires.”

James 1:13-14 NET

Hmmm…… don’t test GOD by saying that he is tempting you. 

Cf. Mt. 4:6-7 – the universe is neither against you nor for you. Stop deceiving yourself & buck up!

Irrespective of consequences, never stop working on yourself. 

And don’t fall into the trap of classifying all things (especially people & events) into good & bad (simplistic dualism)

Take full responsibility for your own choices/actions.

Never blame life/the world, for giving you a bad hand.

Now, try Vipassana!
