Rasika Acharyas say that if one follows life as per own individual belief system and own half-baked thoughts, then falling down and inviting ruin is a sure-shot way. Of this, there is no doubt!
When one sincerely takes shelter of a BONAFIDE teacher (Rasika Guru) and follows the rules and regulations of Vedic Scriptures, then only they can go deeper and walk on the real purpose of life, bypassing all the hurdles easily, as now, the blessings of guru tattva is protecting the seeker.
Note that I have stressed on the word bonafide above. You can find the meaning of true bonafide teacher (guru tattva) and how to identify a bonafide guru here.
When we are proud and follow own belief system and thoughts as per own tendency, at times we will get vairagya (detachment) and at times, we will get raga (extreme attachment) to the pleasures of the material world.
One moment, your mind tricks you to think that you have completed all achievements of spiritual life and very next moment the mind impels you to such dirty material thinking that is very tough to even write here!
Rasika Acharyas & Vedic Scriptures (Bhagavad Gita 6.6 precisely) clearly say that the state of mind is weird (vichitra).
The mind will tend to make you cry for Krishna one moment, and very next moment it will make you think of utter non-sense.
To control the mind is only possible by following instructions of guru tattva. The prime instruction of guru tattva in this age of Kali is chanting Hare Krishna Mahamantra (Read the detailed inner confidential meaning of Hare Krishna Mahamantra if you really want to find the purpose of your life).
Whatever be the condition in life, simply chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra and pray to Krishna for direction. All the further path will manifest withing the heart with due course of sincere chanting.
Guru tattva will guide you from within. Read the true nature of guru tattva here.
