Material Life - an essential subject
In our human society, those who are not God conscious remain in the forest of material life simply for sense gractification. Such persons are not at all satisfied with their many material gains. People want more and more material possessions. Day after day, with great difficulty, we work tirelessly to secure such possessions, and sometimes, while trying to fulfill material desires we encounter lots of troubles.
In spite of so much hard labor, at the end we find disappointment, or fear. In material life, we are always in the blazing fire of fear, since no one knows what will happen next. As conditioned living entities we have the defect of being always fearful, but simply by the mercy of God, we can rid ourselves of this defect of material life. By surrendering ourselves to the Lord we will be freed from material life.
