The wisdom of the wild
I don't mean misbehavior, but real wildness, elemental wildness, animal wildness.
Grace wins in the end
Grace and the sugary sweet are so much at odds that in order to be a friend of one you have to be an enemy of the other.
Optimism often lies, but hope never fails.
If our beliefs have meaning, we must act as if our souls depend on it.
Our ability to break keeps us alive
Our ability to break and heal keeps us alive and makes us stronger.
The wisdom tree
Sometimes the place where you used to find wisdom gets destroyed.
The enlightened one as imperfect, cracked, and chipped.
The ways of the forest
Everything has a job in the forest.
Who are you?
Do not be afraid of self-examination.
Religious community is essential
The central task of the religious community.
The church is people
It is not a body of belief, a set of principles, or an impressive structure of stone, wood, and glass.
The last aria
There is a cricket playing the violin in my bathroom.
