Comment: When I am deeply suffering, there is no desire to serve because the pain is overwhelming…
Yes, when we are deeply suffering then we lose the desire to serve because the pain is overwhelming. At that time, we have to remind ourselves that the only way out is still Krsna consciousness, whether you suffer or not. The only way out of suffering is through Krsna consciousness; there is no other way out.
Everybody suffers, I have suffered and I still suffer but how do we get out of here? Do I stop my service? But then I will just go into more suffering, that is all that will be left. If I stop everything, stop chanting then I just go into pain; a ball of pain. So, that is not a great position to be in. Maybe I can handle it for a short moment but then I have got to do something to get over that pain so then I start chanting Hare Krsna again because I realise there is no other solution. The only way out is chanting Hare Krsna!
