Trying to enjoy in a world of suffering………………………Nectarean Mellows

We are trying to enjoy and we can’t even properly enjoy. If you take a poll in this world how many people have more enjoyment then suffering? So much suffering!! And even when you are enjoying in this world that enjoyment is simply arranged by material energy to make you more attached to your body and to your forms of enjoyment that you have; why? So that you will suffer more when it is taken away; that is the science of how material energy has created things. Krsna tells us that He is the creator; that the enjoyments of this world are sources of misery, the more you enjoy the more you suffer when the enjoyment is taken away and it will be taken away; it is inevitable, it has to be taken away; the world has been created in that way.

So people who are trying to enjoy in a world of suffering are unfortunate and a civilisation that is based on this principle is most unfortunate; good fortune begins when we discuss the misery of birth, old age, disease and death. Thus these discussions are very important, they actually begin the process of real human existence, to simply discuss the very high topics of the spiritual world are not really going to go deep into our hearts or our consciousness unless preliminary we study the miseries of material existence because as long as we have the enjoying propensity then just like some people try to enjoy a novel about the various ways of how one can enjoy in this material world or some history. Some people little more pious in the mode of goodness they want to enjoy spiritual topics which is good certainly a much higher plain beginning of the transcendental plain but when we realise the miseries of material existence and we are thoroughly acquainted of how suffering is in the material world then we just don’t read the lilä of the Lord, we take shelter of it, we understand that it is our only hope; then; we just don’t chant the holy names, we cry out the holy names.
