Hare Krishna dear devotees.
Why does guilt consciousness accompany in each step of Krishna consciousness?
Whether a devotees is an advanced devotee , a neophyte or a materialistic devotee, I am pretty sure everyone might has gone through a phase of guilt consciousness sometimes or the other.
Why can't a Krishna consciousness person (to whatever extent it may be) be happy of being a KC person rather than crying/complaining of guilt.
" oh Krishna I forget to serve you / remember you before I ate this".
"oh Krishna why I ended up wasting 1 hour watching this stupid news/tv or whatever"
"oh Krishna why I ended up wasting money in buying new cloths/shoes/,materialistic things, I could have donated that money to temple"
"oh Krishna why such bad thoughts comes in my mind".
etc etc ...
And I don't think these guilt's will make you more stronger, we forget all these guilt's when next time you are again surrounded by maya's energy .
Many times I will be reading Bhagvatam in the Hall (TV room) and my family members switch on TV and wow, I end up enjoying bollywood songs completely forgetting about the book on hand. So how powerful are these materialistic things.
I understand one solution is to associate with devotees, but if devotees association is not possible than what?. What is the alternative for devotee's association?
jai shree Gokulesh.
