Kitten or monkey

2 types of Bhakti
Described by Ramkrishna. He said kitten like is better.
I personally believe starts as monkey and evolves to kitten

In time.

Not easy

This is what Yogananda said

Preparing for your next incarnation

The Right Attitude Toward Suffering

   There are two kinds of seekers: those who are like the baby monkey and those who are like the kitten. The baby monkey clings to the mother; but when she jumps, it may fall off. The ittle kitten is carried about by the mother cat, content wherever she places it. The kitten has complete trust in its mother. I am more like that; I give all responsibility to the Divine Mother. But to maintain that attitude takes great will. Under all circumstances-health or sickness, riches or poverty, sunshine or gray clouds-your feeling must remain unruffled. Even when you are in the coal bin of suffering you don't wonder why the Mother placed you there. You have faith that She knows best. Sometimes an apparent disaster turns into a blessing for you.
