Positive thoughts are like a turbo engine under your feet pushing you towards Krishna.
If you ingest resentment, then you feed on revenge. If you ingest fear, then you feed on hesitation.
If you want to be Krsna conscious, nothing will stop you. If you don’t want to be Krsna conscious, nothing can help you.
If everyone focuses on the faults of others rather than focus on their own faults, nothing improves.
Krsna will help us to the degree we have the intention, and make the effort, to improve.
Association with devotees is essential for becoming Krsna conscious. Therefore, not getting along well with devotees will pose a huge problem for our spiritual advancement.
