The main thing holding us back from reconnecting with God isn’t some external force like Maya (illusion), but actually ourselves!
It’s hard to believe, but we are our own worst enemy in this regard. We have nobody to blame but ourselves for our current state.
That’s why Kanak Das, a follower of the Madhva Vaishnava tradition, sings, “I may go, If I will go.
“In simpler terms, if I can let go of my own ego and selfish desires, then maybe I can enter the spiritual world.
When we stop being so self-centered and start focusing on God, we can start our journey back to God.
