Brahma Jyoti, to a devotee when we hear that we think the material world is better, almost. It is like a spiritual suicide. Because in the material world there is a chance to go back to the spiritual world, the spiritual sky. But from Brahma Jyoti it is like a dead end. From there you can’t get out, you can’t go out anywhere except eventually you might fall back into the material world after indefinite period of unlimited time. So the thing is that anyone in this situation they should actually surrender to a bona fide spiritual master and allow the spiritual doctor, the guru to guide one in how to get over the difficulties. Otherwise if they try to speculate, I will do this, I will do that they are going to end up in some bad situation.
