Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj:

The beginning of your interest is to bow down your head, and your heart will be captured automatically. Try to connect with that section where you will always be with folded palms, and where you can never be master. Such abnegation and courage of self-giving is necessary if you want to live in the higher plane. Otherwise, you may reign in hell. According to Satan's word, "it is better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven." But just the opposite is necessary.

Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj:

The bird known as Chataka always looks above for rainwater, but it will never take any water from the ground even if there is an abundance there. He waits only for whatever water will come from above. Sufficient rain may come, or thunder may come, yet he will not take even a single drop from the earth. Our attitude should be like that. We must follow whatever instruction and direction comes from above, and never try to fulfil any plan from the mundane world. "The Director, the Master, the Lord above -- I am connected with Him." This sort of practice is conducive.
