Above all it loves us. Interviewer: Does this mean that people who have not had the ability to practice Sahaj yoga are not connected with the divine? Shri Mataji: Most of them are not. And if some of them are, they don’t know all about it. Interviewer: So this is what, an extra force that is available to human beings to develop themselves in this world? Shri Mataji: Of course.
