Don’t lose heart but give your heart to Krishna


Our desperation for quick result is one of the main reasons as why many a times our enthusiasm for devotional life starts waning and our heart gets filled with discontentment. We develop a notion that as soon as we begin practicing devotion the Supreme Lord will immediately appear in front of us with a flute in his hand and he will take away all the problems of our life. But in reality it does not happen that way.  Krishna sees our consistency, steadfastness, eagerness and most importantly whether our disillusionment with the worldly desires is genuine or not. 

Without flushing out all the non godly stuffs from our heart it is not possible to invite Krishna to enthrone our heart.  And unless and until we reach to this stage of utter purity we remain unqualified to enter into the good books of the Supreme Lord. It is not that Krishna hates us or only waits for our purification to be completed. In fact the moment we take the decision to wash all the dirt of our heart Krishna enthusiastically starts helping us, inspiring us, guiding us and most importantly directing us towards the sincere seekers who are themselves on the path of purification. In our spiritual journey we should not lose heart but instead we should give our heart to Krishna and practice devotional life following the teachings of Rupa Goswami who advises all seekers to be filled with enthusiasm, confidence and patience while endeavoring to achieve love of God.
