Let’s not complain about the past; it is such a waste of energy. You could do a lot of things for humankind if you could come out and be precise. Let us face the world without wearing sunglasses. Take off your glasses and perceive the light…You can do so much, not only for yourself but for others. You could contribute so much help and service to people who are suffering, who are trapped in all kinds of problems.
