The angels will help us see things differently, but this can happen only to the degree that we are willing to get out of our own way. By taking our egos out of the picture, we not only gain clarity but divine direction. The secret is spending time practicing the presence by stilling our minds and going within in meditation. The practice of meditation also consists simply by paying attention to what I am doing in the moment. This attentiveness is a spiritual power that gives one the feeling that I myself am living, rather than being lived.
