Jiva or Living Entity: Entanglement of a Jiva

                                                                  Can you please help me understand how these verses/purports do not contradict each other?

                                                                  Bhagavad-gita As It Is 7.14.  

                                                                  Q. 1. What does Back to Godhead mean?

                                                                  The Magazine of the Hare Krishna Movement is named "Back to Godhead", above the logo of the magazine these words are written:  Godhead is light. Nescience is darkness.  Where there is Godhead there is no nescience. Back to Godhead means back to the the light, back to the Supreme, back to The Absolute Truth where there is no darkness.

                                                                  This phrase is taken from Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.5.25 where it is stated: "tamasi ma jyotir gama".  "Don't stay in darkness. Go to the light." That is the Vedic injunction.

                                                                  Q: From Science Of Self Realization book, below paragraph convinced me of why we should surrender and go Back to Krishna

                                                                  “The beginning of our present material life cannot be traced, nor is it necessary for us to know how we became conditioned in material existence. We have to be satisfied with the understanding that somehow or other this material life has been going on since time immemorial and now our duty is to surrender unto the Supreme Lord, who is the original cause of all causes”

                                                                  But From BG 8.3  in the last paragraph of the Purport it says
