-From the point of Absolute Truth, transcendental jiva is never touched or contaminated by material nature, and because of that, being just observer, duality such as fall and rise, up and down, cant be applied.
-In Lord are all temporary material creations as well as His transcendental creations, and because that same Lord resides in everyone, we can conclude that Goloka is in us to.
-The only difference between "liberated" soul and "conditioned" one is in consciousness.
-By changing the consciousness, jiva and Lord reunites.
Dear Shyamu Prabhu,
We never left Goloka . One who reaches the spiritual planets after liberation does not comes back. Krishna has made it very clear in Gita. We have always been here in this material world as the tatastha shakti of Lord with anadi karma .
By Sadhana one can go to the spiritual planets.
Please read Jaiva Dharma book by Sri Bhakti Vinod Thakur.... it explains about Tatastha Shakti [Marginal potency]
If one follows 4 regulative principles and chants 16 rounds of mahamantra attentively, one is sure to go back to Godhead. This we say for sure because this is the promise of pure devotee of God, Srila Prabhupada. To be sure, one has to follow the path and have faith in guru and guru parampara.
To answer - how do we know we desired for the material stuff and came to earth - again the faith in scriptures. THe important thing is not to know whether we desired waht and came to earth - the important thing is to figure out what is the purpose of life and how to get out of here, to go back to Godhead. Whatever we desired, we landed up here. And this is not the permanent abode - we would not like to stay in this dukhalayam ashashwatam world - therefore, we need to go to a place where there is permanent bliss - that place is the lord's abode - whether Vaikuntha or Goloka. As oer our desire and sadhana, we will attain what we deserve.
