We are eternal. Our nature is to find a permanent niche, lasting security. That is not to be found in this material world. It’s like looking for water in a desert.
We are “sat’ (permanent living beings) in an “asat” (impermanent) world. We get comfortable with family, co-workers, & even though it’s not ideal, it’s familiar. It’s ‘OK”. Krishna will keep us there for a season, but He loves us too much to keep us there. He will move us along in due course. We need to learn not to get stuck in what Krishna USED to do, so we’ll be prepared for what He’s ABOUT to do.
