We are now neither here nor there. We are in the middle. We are living in the Bhuloka along with human beings. On one side, there is the Divine world. If we develop qualities like lust and anger, we will move closer and closer to the lower world and we will become more and more distant from the Divine world. But if we travel towards the Divine world, then we will become more and more distant from the lower world. To attach importance to the transient pleasures in the same as moving away from divinity.
