Family bonds are basically feeling only, in that case is it sufficient to leave that feeling instead of physical leaving?

A)You need not leave even the feeling of family, if the feeling on the God is not existing. You have to replace the water in the vessel by the milk. If milk is absent, at least the water should be kept in it for drinking purpose. When you are in the state of theoretical devotion of emotions on God, then only this point of family bond arises which is also a theoretical love. In that case to satisfy the family, you can act externally showing the artificial feelings. But if you enter the practical devotion through service, this valueless phase of feelings is neglected. If you are only in the phase of feelings, what is the difference whether you drink gold spot or goli soda in the dream?
