It is said that the pastimes of Lord Caitanya are like the sky and different birds are flying on different levels in that sky. But some birds do not fly at all, for example, chickens; they do not fly. But I tell you, by this kirtan, we are becoming flying chickens!
Prabhupada said, “Impossible is a word in a fool’s dictionary.” That is a fact. Nothing is impossible. We think we know our limitations. We think we know how far we can take it but with the mercy of Lord Caitanya, it is no longer like that. We astound ourselves. We can do things that were impossible, that we could have never done.
So in this way, we can have faith that somehow or other we will do it. We will make it. That is empowerment. This whole principle of empowerment is just wonderful. We are not restricted by our limitations because we can be empowered to rise above. That is what this kirtan is actually doing: it is empowering us to go beyond anything we ever thought possible – to experience things that we never thought could be.
