I was listening to this lecture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kl_0QrDr0-0 Where at the end He said, that there is a reason behind it, but he will talk about it some other time. Can you kindly give me a link to that lecture or explain to be what he ment by it? What is the reason behind it? Thank you a lot.

The reason is that this knowledge has only entered into our mind on a very superficial level. To make it enter on a deeper level, we must think about it over and over again. The moment we truly believe these things about God, we will instantly surrender to Him. But as of now, it is still just a theory on the surface of our mind.
 
The truth is that we still have more faith in finding happiness in maya than in God. We have thought uncountable times that, “This world is the form of happiness, and I’m going to receive it.” Thus, our attachment in mayic things has entered very deep into our mind. This attachment pulls our mind towards the world, even though we have theoretically understood the points you mentioned. Because we have not thought nearly so many times that, “God is the form of happiness, and I will get happiness from Him.” Thus, we must repeatedly and continuously contemplate on this knowledge until we develop faith in and a desire for God.
