His existence and actions transcend our logic and reasoning
convenient excuse :-)
Also we are more than a finger.... we are complete beings.... even if there is a connection to God and a connection to everything else....
We are complete beings
But such complete beings without the connection to the supreme complete being - Krsna, can become completely dysfunctional.
Only offense-less chanting of Krsna's names like Hare Krsna Mahamantra can save us.
We are complete units. But we are dependent units. Just like a small part of an airplane may be complete and perfect in itself. Even then if it is separated from the plane it cannot function. Our situation is similar. Soul is complete in itself, in the sense that it doesn't need material body. But since the soul cannot function being disconnected from Krsna, it gets covered by material energy. The solution is to function in connection with Krsna.
Hare Krsna Prabhuji
An example in Prabhupad's books
Just like the function of the different body parts like say hands is to provide food to the stomach, they are satisfied. But if the hands try to eat by themselves then they will be frustrated.
When we just serve the Complete Whole, Supreme Absolute Truth, we feel so much satisfied and blissful and happy.
Since we are in this world the term serve, feels like a life wasting thing. But in the Spiritual World that is everything. Here also, as we start serving Lord Krishna we feel very satisfied and happy and blissful.
