Is Satyabhama tolerating or helping Swami by bearing the violence of the demons?

[Smt. Chhanda asked: While writing about Satyabhama, it is written that by bearing the violence of all the demons that were strengthened by the boons of God, she was tolerating God indirectly. Is it tolerating or helping Swami? Please make my mind clear as You have done always. At Your divine lotus feet. Chhanda. By Chhanda Chandra]

Swami replied:- Satyabhama is the incarnation of Goddess Earth, who was tolerating the sins of demons. We shall not say that she is tolerating God indirectly because God gave several boons to demons. Demons did severe penance and God is the divine Father of all souls. If your son becomes rigid for something, will you not tolerate that and sanction it immediately? Moreover, boons are powers and powers can be used in right direction to help good people. Hence, we cannot decide a boon to be good or bad. In a later stage only, the direction of the use of the miraculous power decides whether it is good or bad. Hence, there is no colour of good or bad while God is giving boons to devotees. The colour of good or bad comes only when the devotee uses the miraculous power in a specific direction. Therefore, we shall say that Goddess earth was tolerating the sins of demons. She is also the mother of souls, who has given their bodies. It is inevitable for the parents to tolerate their children. But divine parents will tolerate for a little time only and punish the bad issues because the divine parents are not immersed in the blind love of issues.
