Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 02, Text 44

As spiritual seekers, we sometimes go through dry phases when our devotional practices seem to give us no happiness.

More often than not, the cause of this tastelessness is misdirection of our consciousness. A person who has no aesthetic sensibility finds nothing to relish in a work of art, even when it is an artistic masterpiece. Similarly, those of us who have no spiritual sensibility find nothing to relish in the remembrance of Krishna, even though it is the sweetest and most satisfying experience in all of creation. Of course, all of us as spiritual beings do have an innate spiritual sensibility, but it is presently dormant. All our spiritual practices are meant to arouse and activate this dormant sensibility and thereby enable us to relish the remembrance of Krishna.
