Choosing to Fall Down

Hare Krishna Prabhus,
Please accept my dandavats.
Thanks you all very much for the helpful advice you all are giving.
Thanks a lot for encouraging me and guiding me, and for giving references from Prabhupad’s writings.
I will certainly try my best to follow in the best possible manner.

Hare Krishna Prabhu,
Sometimes we are left alone with no association. Even in this situation, if we try to follow strictly, that is a sign of enthusiasm, determination. But we also know that we cannot follow alone, and ultimately thats what happens, we cannot follow everything required in bhakti with full sincerity and determination.Chanting itself might seem immpossible. So questions come like- “What is Krishna trying to see by testing us alone? Or why Krishna put me out of association?” In this case its very hard to be hopeful, one ends up thinking that I might have committed done something very bad, so I am being kept out. This becomes even more intolerable if I just cannot pinpoint the reason for this condition. Was it offense, or lust, or attitude or what. Its very hard to be enthu, determined or hopeful. Mind keeps putting additional pressure by saying that “trying to be determined is like trying to prove that bhakti is possible alone, which is not possible, so you better give up”. After trying a # of times and still failing, somehow the determination is just not coming back. Its very confusing. Please throw some light on this. What to do when one is alone?
