Certain Gopikas didn't fear while doing karma phala tyaga. How to understand this?

[Shri Ganesh V asked: Padanamaskaram Swamiji, While doing karma phala tyaga You have said that, one should give it with fear and shame but certain Gopikas didn't have fear while giving their butter to Lord Krishna. In fact, they wanted Lord Krishna to steal their butter and they would see that and get entertained. How do I correlate the above two concepts which seem contradictory? At Your divine feet, Ganesh V]

Swami replied:- Fear, shame and interest can be shown in mind and omniscient God recognizes them. The circumstances of the situation decide the possibility of expression or non-expression of these. Gopikas were sages and have the true and complete knowledge of scriptures. In the above situation there is no such opportunity.
