I like this very much. However I am an atheist so I would not link it to a power above in any way. It is a state from within. Please look up the definition of "flow" on Wikipedia.com. It is like letting yourself (your ego) become absorbed in the music... lose awareness off all other things and focusing your mind on the task at hand, almost like transcendental mediation. Clear your mind, calm focus. It can be a natural high that is deeply satisfying. Breathe, flow...

Comprendo. We're in agreement. Tx for writing) The Divine I am referring to is the force of flow felt within.
