Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj:

Devotion is a separate and distinct plane where we live only for the centre; we aspire to live and move only as an agent of the centre, never disconnected from the centre -- this is Krishna consciousness. Reality is for itself, and we must strictly abide by this rule. He is for Himself, everything is for Him -- and I am for Him. And whatever I do must also be for Him. We must strictly adhere to this conception, and always examine whether what we are doing is for Him or for any other part, however important we may think it to be.

Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj:

Try to adjust yourself through sound only, the subtlemost element of this plane. Through sound, go on cultivating spiritual life; and that too must be approached with a serving attitude, otherwise it will be futile. We are recommended to approach divinity through the most subtle element of this gross world. Although it is apparently nothing to us at present, this divinity is actually everything.

So, accept the subtlemost thing. But if the very life is absent, our search will be futile. Learn to give yourself, learn to 'die,' to embrace so-called death at every second. Even in this world we find the 'do-or-die' attitude in ambitious politicians, social workers, etc. In every duty and at every step they are ready to sacrifice their lives for the cause. If one embraces that do-or-die principle of life, he is sure to progress very intensely and become a great success.
