Give Your Best But Give Up Results


Devote yourself totally and give your best in whatever you have to do, but keep it in mind that you are only the instrument and not the doer -- God, the Almighty, is the doer.

You can’t know the Almighty’s intentions or plans. It is only the three qualities (gunas) of nature that are always at play. It is the yearning for action that binds the person. It is the aloofness from action that dissolves the karmic seeds. Thus, you should constantly work only for work's sake and give up the desire for results, which may be good or bad.

Do your best. If you have knowledge of a better way to serve, make sure you use it. Don’t hold back just due to fear of hard efforts or criticism. Don’t work in a slapdash or lukewarm manner just because no one is watching or because you feel you will not get desired results from the work. Always give your best and strive to do such actions that can bring maximum good and minimum evil to all as a whole. Do Karma Yoga and stay away from sin.

A Quick Look at Orlando Nightclub Deadly Shooting


The Orlando night club shooter has been identified as 29-year-old Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, who had pledged allegiance to the notorious militant group ISIS. He carried an assault rifle as well as a pistol into the nightclub Pulse at around 2 a.m. on Sunday and opened fire at people there, leaving 50 of them dead and dozens of others wounded. 

A letmesay.in image showing a millitant with a gunDuring the attack, Omar Mateen, he called 911 and pledged allegiance to ISIS; which I believe should be renamed to anti-ISIS.

A preliminary investigation also revealed that the American-born Mateen, a resident of Fort Pierce, Florida, was questioned by the FBI in 2013 and 2014 but both times he was let go because he wasn’t found to be a threat. 

Investigators were definitely not right in their conclusions because he eventually caused a big tragedy to the nation. Orlando police shot and killed him at the nightclub.

President Obama said, “We know enough to say this was an act of terror and act of hate,” and Orlando Police Chief John Mina said, “It appears he was organized and well-prepared”.

Commenting on yesterday’s Orlando tragedy, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinto wrote on Twitter, “Woke up to hear the devastating news from FL. As we wait for more information, my thoughts are with those affected by this horrific act.”

Trump wrote, “Horrific incident in FL. Praying for all the victims & their families. When will this stop? When will we get tough, smart & vigilant?”

Let me say, the deadly terrorism attack has proved that Americans austricter gun control measures. I personally also believe that the deadly incident has put more weight to the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential candidate Donald Trump’s idea to take a stricter action against militant organizations, particularly ISIS.
