Question: Why is it that, no matter how much I meditate, the attraction towards external objects doesn’t go away?
Amma, “Children, if you truly love God with all your heart, you will feel utter contempt for worldly objects. If you offer sweet delicacies to someone who is in bed with fever, the delicacies will taste bitter to that person. We should likewise become afflicted by the fever of divine love. We will then not feel any attraction towards external objects. Without overcoming the taste of the tongue, you cannot relish the taste of the heart.
