Excerpt from a private email:
The attraction to Krishna Consciousness and all the things that are part of it (such as the Sridhama, the Vaisnavas, the Holy Name etc.) is natural for the spiritual soul. It is so because we are made of the same nature. As an eagle is attracted to the sky and a fish to the sea, the jiva is attracted to Krishna.
Because of the cover of Maya we are acting as if we were part of another nature but this attraction is in the direction of things of matter, which are illusory (because they do not give happiness) and temporary (because we will soon have to leave everything) .

You are attracted to the videos, the photos and the articles that we publish because your nature is awakening. Maybe you can not even explain why you like them so much but you feel the attraction.
Thanks to the pious or spiritual actions of past lives and of this life, or thanks to the mercy of the Guru and the Sadhus, you are now on the path of Krishna consciousness.
Continue with your excellent service and with the chanting of the maha-mantra and, as Srila Prabhupada said, your life will be sublime.
