We think is the advancement of civilization is actually putting us into many more hardships. To counteract the hardships we have the machines. But then to maintain those machines is another hardship and so on. So things become very complicated unnecessarily. But sense gratification just becomes a headache. When we use that for Krishna, when we use anything and everything for Krishna, then it becomes a source of our deliverance. So the devotee wants the best for Krishna.
