  • Sorry Mario, I haven't checked my page for ages. I just saw this. I'm happy to hear you are getting closer to Krishna even if the medium is an unfaithful wife. Krishna is so compassionate and clever. He insistently pulls you closer and never gives you a test you can't pass. By taking shelter of Him you'll gradually overcome the pull of women.

  • hey mario i met you on books in sydney remember?

  • Nice realization.

    Also, with the pain Krsna is teaching you to be more tolerant and forgving. Pain can be a great teacher.

    I think your wife and friend want you to trust them more.

  • Forgiving is letting go of the toxicity of resentmet in your own heart towards this person. Being concerned that he is too close to your wife and wanting to do something about should be viewed as a separate issue. In other words, forgiving doesn't mean one must condone an action that is wrong or that you view as wrong. I think it is healthy to be concerned about another man's association with your wife and being forgiving doesn't mean you turn a blind eye to something that you sense is, or could be, problematic.

    Forgive him, but that doesn't mean you have to accept what he is doing.

    If you still have questions, please write.
  • You are a good devotee, Mario, because you take the problems and hardship in your life as sent by Krishna for your purification. The strongest attachment as a man, is no doubt the attachment to women, or one's wife.

    It seems like trouble and pain when she walks away, but if you take it as Krishna's mercy then it will turn into detachment. You'll surrender to Krishna instead of your wife. Yeah! :)

    So it's all Krishna's favor in the end. We can't become attached to Him and detached from matter, unless He allows it.
  • I am sorry to hear about your wife. It's tough if you are not on the same wavelength.

    Yes, everything is degrading very fast. It is so obvious. And there is only one solution - to seek shelter at Krishna's lotus-feet.

    Hare Krishna

    I'll send you the text.
  • I couldn't agree more. Srila Prabhupada said that it would have some serious consequences to slaughter all these cows, as they do.

    I have also received a text with predictions for 21st century, according to the shapda rishis. Interesting reading. If you want it, let me know.

    Ys, Jdd
  • Thanks for the encouragement, Bhakta Mario. It's all Krishna's mercy. You be good now. Hare Krishna!
  • ...hare krishna..
