The Only Shelter for Anyone is Kṛṣṇa (11/05/12)
I am very happy that your are determined to stay as part of the ____ project. As I am concerned about your welfare, peace of mind, happiness, and spiritual advancement, I am also concerned about the same for all my disciples.
I am especially concerned that there is always harmony and tranquility among our devotees so you must be very cautious not to let your personal feelings disturb the service atmosphere among the devotees in ______. That is of the utmost importance.
You should read Rukmiṇī’s teachings in the Kṛṣṇa Book. There she describes the uselessness of taking interest or shelter in any mundane man. She describes them as lumps of useless flesh with mustaches. She says it in a way that all women should realize that their only real shelter is Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Male.
Frankly you are getting on in years and it is time to make Kṛṣṇa the only shelter of your life. This “American/modern” idea that everyone needs a partner and a fulfilling ‘relationship’ is basically just another pitfall of Māyā, leading to delusion and suffering. The only shelter for anyone is actually Kṛṣṇa and those who understand this are fortunate. Those who do not are certain to suffer. You must have realized this by now.
Let your beauty and charming nature as a woman be an offering to Kṛṣṇa and forget about so-called love and relationships of this material world.
Maintain a sweet and loving relationship with the devotees of Kṛṣṇa and Mahāprabhu and you will always find happiness in this life and the next.
Hoping you are well.
