“For our life to go on a smooth drive, we need to properly balance it using our intelligence.” – Radhanath Swami
Sometimes you want to go into so much of your spiritual life that family life is neglected, and your career is collapsing; that is unsustainable. Sometimes you go into so much of your career – that every moment is so precious, that every moment means progress, that every moment means working towards promotion, towards more money and more power – and because of that your family is suffering and your spiritual life is nil. And sometimes you just immerse into doing things for family that spiritually and economically things are collapsing. You see, if any one of these is not properly nourished, everything else suffers.
Proper association is where we come together to actually become inspired to balance our lives in such a way that we are on the path to liberation, to perfection, to pure love of God.
