The exchanges between Krishna and His devotees, these are not like the ordinary relations in the material world. They’re actually a heart to heart or soul to soul relationship. Externally they may appear to be like an ordinary material relationship, but internally it’s altogether a different flavor. That can only be understood by devotee, who is surrendered to Krishna and who is rendering devotional service and who has experienced even momentarily a drop of that ocean of nectar of devotion.
For one who has never tasted a drop of that nectar, they won’t be able to understand that the happiness and the loving exchange between Krishna and his devotees is altogether a completely different world. It has nothing to do with this material world
