Welcome to Wisdom and Wonders

Make peace, be kind, be gentle

THOUGHT IS ONLY AN APPROXIMATION OF REALITY.

We gaze at the past through a distorted lens.

LIFE

is like climbing a mountain of treacle with the heavy weights of past and future on your back.

LIFE

is like climbing a mountain of treacle with the heavy weights of past and future on your back.

THIS

IS

GOOD

ENOUGH

We’re all damaged goods like crooked trees.

THAT’S WHY WE’RE BEAUTIFUL.

Featured Book

A Flower Called Metta by Ajahn Chatchai. English Version.

"When you have difficulty in maintaining awareness or when sati (mindfulness) takes a day off, you just need to add a bit of softness into whatever you are doing."
"The softness of the heart can sometimes be stunningly powerful as if it would overtake our whole body."
"Whenever your mind becomes gentle and kind even for one minute, that minute is worth our existence."
