Krishna consciousness is a positive alternative.

kṛṣṇa — sūrya-sama; māyā haya andhakāra

yāhāṅ kṛṣṇa, tāhāṅ nāhi māyāra adhikāra

Krishna is just like the sun and maya is just like the darkness. So when sun rises the darkness of maya cannot save it. Nescience has to go. So in the same way when we can bring Krishna in our hearts then all the maya, all the ignorance. That’s all dissipated, all the doubts. So Krishna consciousness is a positive alternative.
