When we hear about the Lord, we should hear with a spirit to serve the Lord. When we chant his names, we should chant so that He is pleased to hear us chanting. That is the beauty of life, the real art of living.
When we stand before the Lord, we should be meditating on how we can develop the qualities and the characteristics by which he will really be pleased to see us. Then, when we have such a consciousness, he actually reveals himself to us.
God sees not only our bodies, but he sees our desires, motivations, intentions, and he is only pleased when there is love. If we do not have love in our hearts, God sees, but he is not pleased to see us.
