Amusing questions on God, part I

Question: Why did God make "Space Cadets" often forgetful by nature?

Guru: As we need friends, even so God needs friends. God wants His friends to have the same capacities and qualities that He has. Since He wants His creation to continue, He always sees the bright side of His creation; therefore, God consciously and deliberately makes Himself forgetful of His unaspiring creation, and He wants His friends to do the same. His Space Cadet friends do quite a few things wrong in life, but they forget about their mistakes and march forward. So Space Cadets are God’s good friends, who are unconsciously imitating their best Friend, God.
