the importance of wonder

Concepts create idols;
only wonder comprehends anything.
People kill one another over idols.
Wonder makes us fall to our knees.

Quote: Gregory of Nyssa (c.335-395)

Grateful for this day

Gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

the oath…


I swear I will not dishonor my soul with hatred,
but offer myself humbly as a guardian of nature,
as a healer of misery, as a messenger of wonder,
as an architect of peace.
