Srimad Bhagavatam 1.4.28 by HH Prahladananda Swami in Sarajevo on August 4, 2012
Stop sense gratification, which is a source of misery. The learn to tolerate. Above tolerance, performing pious activities and austerity is just to hear about Krsna. "Jnane prayasam..." But Srila Vyasadeva did not explain that and therefore he felt unsatisfied.
Krishna consciousness is very difficult as Krsna interferes with our plans. If we are not Krsna conscious then Krsna puts us in the bodily mental concept of life.
Accept everything as Krishna's service meant for his service. When one engages in devotional service then one discovers a blissful existence because one becomes fixed on the object of sacrifice. Rise above the three modes.
Take the process of hearing about Krsna and give up your attachments and accept reality. Only then Krsna consciousness becomes a reality to us.
