Whether you come to Me or not, you are Mine. This Siva Matha, this Sai Matha has the love of a thousand mothers towards Her children; that is why I do so much lalana (fondling) and so much palana (nurturing). Whenever I appear to be angry, remember, it is only love in another form. For I have not even an atom of anger in Me; I just evince My disappointment that you do not shape as I direct. When I direct you along a line of action, reflect on My advice. You have full liberty to do so; in fact, I shall be happy if you do so. I do not like slavish obedience. If you feel that it will help you reach the goal, follow it; if not, go to some other place. But let Me tell you one thing : Wherever you go, you will only reach Me. I am everywhere.
