In Bhagavad Gita, the hero of the story, Arjuna has doubts about his mission in life. He turns to someone asking his advice and it is revealed that this man is actually Krishna. Krishna in Hindi religion is an aspect of God. Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D. discusses the relevance of this story in order to explain why time was invented in the first place in his book, The Yoga of Time Travel. It moved me so much, I thought I would share a paragraph with you here:
"Krishna explains the reason we are caught in time. He, Krishna, created desire, and we express this desire in terms of the physical realm and in so doing become captured by it. While desire for a material universe ultimately, 'creates' the universe, the fundamental desire in individuals, whether they remember it or not, is the yearning to be Krishna. So, Krishna gives every sentient form the ability to focus and defocus possibility-waves (energy waves that are the endless amount of possibilities in the universe) and thus the means for evolution, happiness, and sadness, which arise from the probability-curves (energy curves created by our observation) we each generate in our attempts to master the physical world."
Thank you for reading and Namaste! (The Light in me recognizes the Light in you!)
