It we try to avoid obstacles, then we must be very careful, because at the same time, we may be avoiding the instruction of the spiritual master. Because the spiritual master has given some instruction which requires surrender in our part, we may see some difficulty and start speculating “Oh, what is Krsna telling me? Maybe Krsna is telling me that I shouldn’t do this.” It is not Krsna speaking to us, it is Maya whispering into our ear “Don’t surrender to Krsna”.
