This movement is made of the mercy of Krsna and the problem is that being conditioned souls, we are very inspired and excited when something is new but then after a little while it becomes routine. So by now it’s just, ‘this Hare Krsna movement, we are apart of it…’ and it’s just routine and it’s apart of our life. So when spiritual life has become a routine then it means we are taking the mercy for granted. We are no longer seeing the mercy, no longer appreciating the mercy.So we have to everyday again make a special endeavor to attract the mercy of Krsna. One has to renew day by day his surrender. Everyday start again, ‘today I’m going to start again. I’m going to make a renewed endeavor to attract the mercy of Krsna.’ Everyday again and again. It’s not like, ‘oh, I’m trying and it just doesn’t work, I’ve been trying now for the last seven years and I’m just a conditioned soul, there is no hope for me…’ No. Then today, realizing that we are that, then today we make a special endeavor, today do something extra. You don’t have to be superman, (dramatic) ‘tadada, tadadada, tadadada….super bhaktas in town!’ We always want to be super bhakta. But we can just do something nice for Krsna today. Instead of making it ‘another day in KC’ we can make this a special day!(Kadamba Kanana Maharaja, June 2011, London)
