I recently started going to one of the temples but it is almost two hours away. My car recently broke down and I am awaiting my taxes and disability settlement so I can fix it.
It's very difficult for me to stay transfixed on Krishna. My family thinks it is absurd. I have friends who I used to drink and do drugs with who keep trying to get me to come back and associate with them. Yet, I do my 16 rounds a day and read what few books I have left (I finished all the ones I purchased so now I read one text of the Bhagavad every day and I am about to start the Mahabarata). And to my knowledge, there aren't too many people in the area who are Krishna conscious so it's a bit difficult to begin new social engagements (I live in a town where money talks.)
Any suggestions would be appreciated as to how I can remedy this problem. Hari bol!
