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.
