Krishna is always with us and we are always with Krishna
Gauragopala dasa: Krishna is always with us and we are always with Krishna, the choice is ours with what we actually see, experience and serve.
Nothing is missing in Goloka Vrndavana the perpetual Kingdom of God because everything is always fully perfectly there already in Goloka in the mood of loving selfless devotional relationships with Krishna.
Srila Prabhupada – “There is nothing to be gained in Goloka, only regained” Lecture August 6, 1973
Srila Prabhupada – “Every living being, out of many, many billions and trillions of living beings, has a particular relationship with the Lord eternally. That is called svarupa. By the process of devotional service, one can ‘revive’ that svarupa, and that stage is called svarupa-siddhi–perfection of one’s constitutional position.” (Introduction to Bhagavad-gita As It Is).
The fact is, our real bodily form is eternally with Krishna in Goloka, but sometimes, due to our ability to choose and practice free will, we simply make the wrong choice and ‘dream’ of an existence without Krishna.
In this way, our ‘memory’ and ‘awareness’ of who we really are becomes forgotten or covered by our own self centered desires to please ourselves in our imaginary (real but temporary) material ethereal and biological bodies, as we no longer recognize Krishna as our eternal master only seen from the correct viewpoint of our permanent and always existing Krishna Conscious nitya-siddha Spiritual body.
Srila Prabhupada – “Established means re-establish. It is already established. That is called svarupa-siddhi. When one becomes perfectly spiritually realized, then he understands what is his relationship is. This relationship is eternal”. Lecture August 6, 1973
Srila Prabhupada – “Of course, everyone has a particular relationship with the Lord, and that relationship is evoked by the perfection of devotional service. But, in the present status of our life, we have not only forgotten the Supreme Lord, but we have forgotten our eternal relationship with the Lord”. (Introduction to Bhagavad-gita As It Is.)
In actual fact, we are always there but some of us (10%) are ‘thinking’ or ‘dreaming we are not there but live in a world made up of our own imagination.
The fact is, our real bodily form is eternally with Krishna in Goloka but sometimes, due to our ability to choose and practice free will, our memory and ‘awareness’ of who we really are becomes forgotten or covered by our own self centered desires to please ourselves (which is only possible in the sub-conscious nitya-baddha ‘dreaming’ self) and not Krishna.
So leaving Goloka is NOT a physical fall down, it is a sub-conscious one. Everything in Krsnaloka is set eternally in the ‘eternal presence’, meaning Gods eternal blissful Kingdom has no experience or concept of past or future.
So what’s there is forever there. This means every living entity is represented there by the nitya-siddha bodily form they eternally are.
This ‘eternal presence’ that has no beginning or end in Goloka, is a place of selfless loving devotion. This is Gods or Krishna’s eternal Kingdom where the living entities awareness is meant to always be however, some choose to forget their perpetual nitya-siddha body and enter another world called the material creation or mahat-tattva.
Only found in Goloka is who we really are, everlastingly serving Krsna and His devotees and Expansions in a blissful nitya-siddha body that ultimately ‘perpetually’ out shines all the nonsense dream material identities our secondary nitya-baddha sub-conscious state has ‘chosen’ to create over so many life times in this material creation.
It is therefore; only in Goloka we will find our perpetual devotional bodily form, endlessly existing, living out the living entities ‘full potential as a nitya siddha devotee of Krsna
This means ALL living entities or jiva sparks ARE a Svarupa nitya-siddha body that is eternally unchangeable, eternally youthful, eternally original and eternal a person with bodily form sat, chit, ananda, VIGRAHA.
If there is no past or future in Goloka and only the present, then we are all in a perpetual state of originality and are eternally present there in Krsnaloka even if we ‘dream’, ‘think’ and ‘imagine’ we are not there.
Remember, the living entity leaves Goloka not as ones eternal Svarupa body, but via their sub-conscious dreams, thoughts, mistaken desires and imagination.
So, just as ones material body never changes while one is dreaming they are a King, ones ‘Svarupa’ body never changes while one is living out their self centered dreams in the material world.
We must remember that our nitya-siddha-Svarupa body is forever fixed and secured perpetually within the ‘eternal presence’, which is an ‘eternal state of originality’ that has no past and future.
This means when one finishes their dreams and nightmares within the material world and again become ‘aware’ of their full potential ‘Svarupa body, it is like waking up from a dream and finding themselves as the body they always were and always have been.
Srila Prabhupada explains it this way; there is nothing to be added in Goloka, only the ‘awareness’ of what is already there to reinstated and again become ‘aware’ of.
So leaving Goloka is NOT a physical fall down in our nitya siddha body, rather, it is a sub-conscious one where we manifest as our nitya baddha projected sub-conscious state that is compared to a dream state of being which is the lower self radiated from the nitya-siddha living entity when they ‘choose’ to forget their perpetual nitya siddha Krsna conscious bodily form.
The fact is, our real bodily form is eternally with Krishna in Goloka, but sometimes, due to our ability to choose and practice free will, our memory and ‘awareness’ of who we really are, becomes forgotten or covered by our own self centred desires to please ourselves and not Krishna.
Everything in Krsnaloka is set ‘eternally in the present’, meaning Gods eternal blissful Kingdom has no experience or concept of past or future. So what’s there is forever there. This means every living entity is represented there by the bodily form they eternally are.
If there is no past or future and only the present, then we are all in a perpetual state of originality there. Remember, the living entity leaves Goloka not as ones eternal svarupa body, but via their sub-conscious nitya-baddha dreams, thoughts, mistaken desires and imaginations.
This ‘eternal presence’ that has no beginning or end in Goloka, is a place of selfless loving devotion. This is Gods or Krishna’s eternal Kingdom where the living entities ‘awareness’ is meant to always be seeing Krishna in one of the many devotional lilas however, there are some who choose to forget Krishna, his Kingdom, as well as the bodily identity one ‘eternally and endlessly’ has there and enter another world called the material creation or mahat-tattva.
