On a side note, how wonderful is this that a ben Noah seeks advice of a Rabbi, and the Rabbi in return tells him what to do as a ben Noah? If only the entire world was like this always!

Yes, there is always a concern that we're "getting what we deserve." But when you show real trust in G-d that whatever He is providing is for the good, with true joy and appreciation no matter how hidden that good is, that itself carries you to a higher place, so that now you are able to receive that good openly, as obvious good. That itself is teshuva.

thank you ... one question however
you said that we should not ask why this or that is happening to me; but if G-d forbid something 'bad' happens isn't one supposed to check his deeds and repent for any misdeeds?
