Continuous association brings negligence for souls. Does it apply to God also?

[A question by Ms. Thrylokya]

Swami replied:- All souls belong to one category only and hence, have similar nature, which is to get negligence due to continuous association (Ati paricayāt avajñā bhavati). The Veda says that God is just opposite to the nature of souls (Dūramete…). Both God and world are north and south poles. All qualities of God are without any defect and all qualities of the soul are without any merit. God brings separation for the welfare of the souls only. The Gopikas were kept at Brundavanam and Krishna never returned back. Only the Gopikas went to Goloka and not anybody, who was continuously associated with Krishna in Dwaraka.
