Banyen's Description: 

This quiet and moving book shows us how the universe supports you and is offering to help you—in very concrete ways. Best-selling self-help author Dave Richo shows how to recognize this help that’s all around us—Grace—and how to access it.

The inexorable and everywhere-visible fact is that a forward-moving evolution is the design and direction of all that is—with no being excluded, especially not us. In fact, one way we know that grace is at work is that it moves us. Indeed, ever-advancing evolution is its most prominent purpose.

Grace is the term Dave Richo uses to describe any of those events in which help comes your way unexpectedly: when the solution to a perplexing problem just suddenly pops into your head; when you suddenly find the strength to rise to an occasion you didn't think you could endure; when the next phase in your spiritual path becomes plain as day.

Moments of Grace usually come as surprises, but, Richo shows, we can learn to expect them—for Grace is a resource any of us can access. He begins by showing where to look to recognize the Grace that surrounds you: in nature, in religion/spirituality, in relationships, in yourself. He then provides practical exercises for learning how to manifest Grace in your life—to recognize and claim the help the universe is constantly offering you.

We can summarize how to assess whether what has happened to us or is happening now is a grace:

  1. Was this or will this turn out to be ultimately beneficial?
  2. Did this come from beyond my ego, something I could not make happen by producing, earning, or meriting it?
  3. Did this have a meaning and purpose that help me manifest my inner wholeness psychologically or spiritually? Does this shift me into a higher consciousness than my ego could have reached on its own?

“This is a good book—that is, filled with goodness, kindness, and wisdom. Deftly avoiding theological sandtraps, David Richo shows us simply and practically how to increase our attunement to ‘the gift dimension of life.’” —Cynthia Bourgeault, author of The Wisdom Jesus
