Question: How to Transform Lust into the Greatest Love?

Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

So, I like a girl. I like-like her. I feel intense emotions about her. I also feel intense emotions about Krishna. How to reconcile this? How to transform this lust into the greatest love?

Answer: Engage it in Krishna's Service

If one is in love with a girl he should understand that it is natural for a boy to be attracted to a girl because that original boy-girl attraction is there between Radha and Krishna. He should also understand that everything he finds attractive about that girl is nothing more than an insignificant portion of the all-attractive qualities of Krishna. In other words, he should not be carried away by thinking the girl is all-attractive since she only possesses an infinitesimal portion of a portion of Krishna's unlimited attractive potencies. In this way he should always appreciate her beauty as a small portion of the unlimited beauty of Krishna. Since it is natural for boys and girls to be attracted to each we recommend that they both become fixed nicely in Krishna consciousness and become happily combined as husband and wife as a solid lifetime commitment. The lustful tendency can be nicely engaged in Krishna's service by producing Krishna conscious children who will become the guiding lights of the human society.
