we think that way that America has nothing to do with the Pacific. So Americans can have nuclear test in Pacific and we will not be troubled, No! Anywhere you have the disturbance on the planet it's all one consciousness. So everybody has to experience.
Please try to understand this. And unless you feel for the others, our life is useless. And because Prabhupada felt for the others in old age he tried to, he tried to go all the seven seas and then tried to preach there with all the inconvenience.
Prahlāda was not burnt because he had unflinchingly faith in the names of Kṛṣṇa and he was chanting all the time. That’s why he was not burnt. Gopas were not burnt when the forest fire was there. Because Kṛṣṇa was there. Always they ran to Kṛṣṇa for protection.
It is never easy to give up attachments to our (blood) relations. However, when Vibhishana realized that his blood relation was keeping him away from serving the eternal Master Rama, he abandoned relation with Ravana.
When one receives the seed of devotional service by the mercy of the guru and Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, one's real life begins. If one abides by the orders of the spiritual master, by the grace of Kṛṣṇa he is freed from service to the mind.
At times, in our life, we are deprived of many things. We keeping thinking about those missing things and feel powerless (like Sampati felt after both his wings were burnt) but the real power is when (by Sri Rama’s grace) we get the spiritual intelligence about how to continue our services to the Lord even under trying circumstances
Sumitra Mata did not let her pain (her son also going to forest) come in the way while she tried to provide solace to queen Kausalya by speaking graciously. Though, she herself was heavy hearted yet resolving Kausalya’s grief was critical for her. Only a peaceful mind can be so considerate of others.
What we are doing as bhakti (in the name of serving the Lord), will it please our Lord Rama? There must be no iota of self-gain or appreciation sought because servants never take credit for the things they do for their masters, as they know that they are able to do everything only because of the Mercy of their Master (Lord).
We must work as care takers / on behalf of Sri Rama. Observing Him to be the Supreme Godhead, we must not work to enjoy the results. He is the sole proprietor and therefore the only enjoyer. We and the services that we offer to Him, are to be enjoyed by Him alone.
Please engrave this into your mind. Too much association - you will be fed up with each other. Then you will kick out. So before kicking out, it is better to be away. Please, sannikarṣo ’tra martyānām anādaraṇa-kāraṇam (SB 10.84.31), too much association is the reason for the disrespect.
