When we listen to Source and act upon what we receive, our lives flow more gracefully.
Generally speaking, we spend much of our time doing things the "old" way. The familiar patterns of living, feeling and thinking have kept us wrapped within our lives in ways that aren't always comfortable, or even in our best interest. Our egos drive us to independence and we're darned if we're not going to stay independent!
Yet, we can remain autonomous and still connect to the Divine. It is possible to live our lives as ordianry beings and receive Divine Grace.
So, what does it mean to connect with the Divine, God/dess or Source?
For one thing, it means to release our stronghold on doing things "our way;" to listen, to receive.
As we move from a state of mundane living into actualizing our Grander selves in this incarnation, we are finding that our older, more familiar ways are not only uncomfortable, but simply aren't working anymore. We can no longer rely on pure "logic" or "practicality" for their own sakes. We must now seek something Grander within us, and live more authentic lives.
That Grandness within us is our connection to Source.
Some may feel comfortable with prayer, others with meditation, but it's wise to note there are a multitude of methods to connect with the Divine.
The key is Presence.
When we bring Presence to our hearts, to our awareness, to our consciousness and everyday tasks, we are present with God. It is in these moments that we open ourselves to receive. We allow love, light, information, guidance and heaven itself into our beings when we connect to Source.
Auditory people might "hear" words or sounds. Visual people may see images or have visions play out like a movie. Some just "know" or "feel" what they receive. How we receive doesn't matter. What matters is that we allow ourselves to accept it.
When we stop judging what we think God sounds like, or discount the ways in which we obtain our information, we open the lines of communication. We open ourselves to receive Divine Grace.
Ah, but listening alone is not enough. The next step is to take action. When we act upon what has been given to us, we live more aligned and authentic lives.
It is through receiving and acting, we allow Divine Grace to flow through us into our everyday lives.
