A compilation of funny, irreverently reverent stories on aligning with the Divine in daily life. For the passionately spiritual and bemusedly skeptical alike.
Adapted from a popular column originally published as "San Francisco's Spiritual Examiner" at examiner.com.
"What if God IS the story? What if the Divine is constantly igniting roadside flares to get our attention? What if there actually IS a Supreme Organizing Principle with a ribald and unbridled sense of humor? And what if we each have this ardent inner suitor who's writing us love letters every day that often go unopened?"
What if indeed? Read on.

I loved this audio book. It really spoke to me. It was full of stories that illustrate how aligning with the divine in every day life can change how life feels every day. The stories were soulful, deep, funny and magical all at the same time. I finished the book today and will start it again tomorrow. There is so much there, I want to hear it again to scoop up more of its gems. I was listening as I drove to work. A bus pulled up along side of me with a huge billboard on the back. It read "Loving Kindness." Just at that moment, Tosha said, "Metta - Loving Kindness." I swear.
I love the simple approach she has to following the Divine! A great listen for any spiritual seeker...there are no complicated regimens here, just a demonstration of genuine and nearly effortless application of spiritual truth peppered with entertaining and relatable stories.

All though these concept have existed for ages, Tosh's perspective is nothing short of enlightened. Through her stories, she was able to perceive and communicate a contemporary understanding of ancient wisdom that always escaped me. I am forever grateful for her creative and unique presentation.
I enjoyed the author's writing style; I spent several years living errrr growing up in San Francisco, so this really brought me back, but even beyond that, I loved her message. Take the time to connect with Spirit and ask for help. My dog was just kidnapped, so I am truly connecting to the Divine to ask for the safe return of my dog. Funny these curveballs we are thrown in life. It seems everything in my life is a struggle. My mom always told me it would be & guess what she was right. I am reading Tosha's book and books like her's to break this habit of everything being a struggle. The White Flag is raised ...
If you find that you are a pattern person or constantly think and speak in a metaphoric manner, this book will resonate with you. Every chapter inspired me to trust my intuition more and walk continually in love. I found myself smiling continually and felt the warmth and authenticity of the author. A challenging and truth filled work!
The soothing voice paired with the content instantly altered my mood after stressful days at the office sitting in rush hour traffic. I released my skeptical, need for scientific evidence and found that life is much easier when you are open to magical possibilities.
I cannot believe that other reviewers are lauding how soothing or wonderful the narrator's voice is. The narrator has a very distinct and obvious lisp which is very distracting and on top of it it sounds like the book was recorded in someone's bathroom. You can hear echoes and mouth noises. I understand that the narrator is the author but the lisp is so distracting it completely takes away from the book and therefore makes this absolutely unlistenable! It is so bad that I'm going to try to get a refund because I cannot believe that they actually have this as an audio book!
This book is like a breath if fresh air that can blew out all those cobwebs off worry and doubt if you let it. The author's voice is soft and relaxing and somewhat hypnotic. This makes her message of relaxing into the support of Divinity just that more inviting and effective. I know I will listen again and again.
Didn't have one
Yes, extreme peace. Letting go of all worry, control, fear.
Highly recommend it as a guide to living your life in a whole new way.
"Straight Talking Tosha"
I thoroughly enjoyed this book - great listen. She connects with you like an old friend - witty and warm.
Look forward to her next audio book.
Certainly makes you take a step back and think about life.
Has helped me be much more peaceful and accepting about daily trials like being stuck in traffic as well as bigger things...
I loved the way the book consists of lots of super inspiring little stories.
I would have liked a bit more actual guidance, steps maybe?? That's something for the wonderful Tosha to write next maybe?
