In large part, living life in the divine flow is about one thing: Learning how to cooperate with the divine guidance that you are continually receiving—the kind of guidance that comes through signs and synchronicities; through the wisdom of others; and most importantly, through your own intuitive sense.
Fortunately, cooperating with divine guidance is not that hard to master. All you have to do is dance. Dance? That’s right . . . dance. Ten years ago I came across an article by an unknown author that described cooperating with divine guidance like dancing with a partner.
Although it is my practice in these weekly messages to only share insights and observations that are original with me, this week I am making an exception. Here is the article I first came across in the year 2000. Even if you have seen it many times before, it is something that is well worth re-reading:
When you look at the word GUIDANCE,Let’s dance with The Divine, my friends. Let’s surrender our need to control life, and allow G.O.D.—the Guidance Of the Divine—to move us in whatever direction is the most beneficial.
notice the word "dance" at the end of the it.
Remember that cooperating with divine direction
is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
and everything feels uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person relaxes and lets the other lead,
then both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues,
perhaps with a nudge to the back,
or by pressing lightly in one direction or another.
It's as if two bodies become one,
moving together beautifully.
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
and attentiveness from one person,
with gentle, skillful guidance from the other.
Now look at the word GUIDANCE again.
Notice that it starts with a “G,”
which could represent GOD,
followed by "U and “I.”
“GOD,” "U" and "I," “DANCE.”
God, you and I dance.
That’s how divine guidance works.
It’s like dancing with God.
Are you willing to let divine guidance
direct your life?
Are you willing to let it lead?
