You said "Suffering happens when we don’t do our action - the other side is heaven but it is here on this earth", does our suffering (cont.)

It was said that it takes 12 years to turn around a negative samskara…also spoke of timing of yugas. How are these timings determined?

 Why do we live in a cycle of Yugas in the first place? What was their origin?

Thanks Eleni for our first and probably most difficult question to answer! :) Krishna isn’t some supernatural power like God of Abraham…….he is the supreme concsiousness that resides in you and in all of us only.. So ask yourself, why Dharma has declined and we have different yugas…As a human are we so perfect to practice dharma without any selfishness and making no mistakes in life?? Aren’t there humans who have gone against their dharma for their own selfish motives? Aren’t there humans who just are too lazy to perform their dharma so that theirs a balance and it never declines? How many humans actually are able to listen their consciousness and are just lost and oblivious about their dharma? Is the consciousness of every human the same?? Aren’t there humans with demonic consciousness like terrorists ( something to discuss)? Don’t they influence the decline of dharma??? Well, because of this we have cycles , in this case they are yoga's, but we also know them as Samsara. The never ending cycle of life, death, and rebirth. There are thousands of cycles, large ones like the Yugas and Samsara and smaller ones as to some bad habits we have that we continue to perpetuate. Why do the cycles continue? So that we can break them! So that we can reach liberation, freedom from suffering and liberation into a God Realized existence. They repeat so we can have more opportunities to break them, if they didn't repeat then we would only have one chance to learn and break a particular pattern, They are here so we can learn from them, so we can break them, so we can release ourselves of suffering. But.... the answer is also as complex as Why does the sun rise every day, and the moon every night? When did they start to do this? This is actually and easier question than the one you have presented to me :) The end answer is that there are many planes of understanding , and this is just one cycle of thousands upon thousands of cycles. They are here so that we can realize God in all living beings and ourselves . They end when we realize this. But then we enter another age of cycles as well! The answer as to why we are here, why do we have to cycle in and out of these cycles, is an age long and highly discussed subject matter and one we may never gain a true answer until of course we arrive in an enlightened state and become God Realized! Until then, we will collectively search and study and grow together to learn how to end our suffering! Thankfully we are reading and studying the Gita! The answers are here! The answers are within ourselves! Thanks Eleni for a great question!
