Devotion to the wrong person or cause can be harmful!
Whatever you do, offer it to God. You are not acting, whatever you do is for God and from God. Put your heart and love in what you do and enjoy doing it.
It is the path of devotion and love when you can say to your God ‘Wherever I am, whoever I am, I am yours.’ Then you have surrendered yourself and offered yourself to God. For this you need closeness.
Turn your desire into love, on the path of devotion. Surrender yourself and you will see how desires get less. In this way desire is transformed and purified.
