Many religious people do good things because they fear god. They think that god is watching them all the time.
But they don’t know that the ‘fear’ of god they carry is pushing them away from god.
God is not watching you. He won’t come and punish you. Keep waiting for life times but he will never come. Neither to punish you nor to reward you.
When you feel fearful, you cannot reach the core of your being. When you fear, your mind gets disturbed. When you have a disturbed mind, god will never reveal.
As a devotee of god, you should have a brave heart. Even if you did a mistake, don’t be fearful. When you do a mistake, behold the truth — that ‘you’ cannot make any mistake. Your body can make mistakes, your mind can make mistakes, but ‘you’ cannot.
