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.
So much of Tosha's story resonated with me. Being a Berkeley Girl I found myself identifying with her experiences and the people of the greater Bay Area.
I found her quotes from Florence Scovel Shinn enlightening and powerful.
I plan to listen to this book again tomorrow.
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.
My connection to the Divine. I have been off for a while, not really connecting with the One the way I had so effortlessly in the past but for the past two days since starting this book I have felt the presence. That alone is worth the credit. :)
The volcano chaser because it reminds me not to make decisions based on fear or without faith in divine guidance.
Her intonations I suppose. She has emotion in her voice, not boring or monotone.
Letting the Divine take the wheel. God's got your back. Go inside and have faith. :)
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?
