The Cosmic Drama


Does God want this drama to continue? Or does he want all of us to get back to him?

If God wants us to perform drama and if all of us get back to him using self realization then will it not be against his will..?

If this drama ( this cycle of Yugas ends) then will there be a new drama?

—KJ, India


Yes, KJ, God does want the drama to continue – but only in an overall sense, not for us individually. He is, Paramhansa Yogananda said, very keen for each one of us to “go home.” That’s why He has given us the techniques of yoga through the great souls who have handed them down through the ages. He has plenty of ways (and souls) to keep the show going without our being part of it. Still, he doesn’t make it easy for us, does He? Well, it’s all part of His drama.

Yes, the yuga cycle will end at some point. In fact, all creation ends at some point. But then, as you say, there will be a new drama after that. And that will end sometime, and another new one will begin. Let’s do our best to make sure we’re not part of those, too!
