Question.: If we are always Being-Consciousness-Bliss, why does God place us in difficulties? Why did He create us?
Bhagavan .: Does God come and tell you that He placed you in difficulties? It is you who say so. It is the false â€˜Iâ€™ again. If that disappears, there will be no one to say that God created this or that. That which is does not even say â€˜I amâ€™. For does any doubt arise that â€˜I am not?â€™ Only if a doubt arose whether one was a cow or a buffalo would one have to remind oneself that one is not an animal but a man; but this never happens. It is the same with oneâ€™s own existence and realization.
